Dear God -Today, I give You thanks for one of Your children, Nick Foles, the Eagles’ quarterback who lead his team to a Super Bowl Championship last week.
It is very common for football players and teams to ask You in prayer to lead their teams to victory, as if You take sides in sport competitions. However, what is remarkable about Nick Foles is the way his faith in You prepared him for the biggest game in his life and which gave him the courage to be the best Nick Foles You created him to be. To prepare for the game, Nick Foles attended seminary classes in the off season. When he took the field in Minnesota, he placed his entire trust and faith in You for him to be the best Nick Foles he could be. With the armor of light You gave him, he exhibited calm wisdom and trust in You. As a result, in the game he flawlessly executed every play and every pass. At the end of the game he held the Super Bowl Trophy in his hands, but he gave You, his Father, all the glory.
Please help me and all Your children follow Nick Foles’ example of what each of us can achieve when we place our complete faith and trust in You. For in that way, each of us can win the biggest race in our walks of faith. We can win something much bigger than any Super Bowl. One day we can win victory over death and join You, Your Son, Jesus Christ, and all Your Saints, Angels and Archangels in Heaven.
God, please support Nick Foles in his calling to be a minister after his football days are done. Amen
If you like this prayer, please share.
