ANSWERED PRAYER AT THE SUPER BOWL
February 6, 2018 | By By IFA Staff and excerpts from article by Bob Ditmer
Give thanks to the Lord for this wonderful report. May His name be lifted high!
“Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Phil 2:9-11 ESV)
After all the controversy of the NFL season, it ended with all glory, honor, and praise going to God! This is answered prayer. On September 26, 2017, in the midst of the controversy about taking a knee during the National Anthem, we asked you to pray, in this publication, for a good report to be brought forth among our countrymen.
Months later, at the end of the NFL season and the one game that everybody watches, all three of the representatives of the Philadelphia Eagles who were interviewed after receiving the trophy gave glory to God! It was the most amazing thing to watch the coach, then the wide receiver, then the quarterback (a Liberty University online seminary student), publicly, clearly, and unabashedly declare their faith.
“Unless you’re from Philadelphia, there’s a pretty good chance you never cared for the Philadelphia Eagles. Their players were mean and violent and epitomized by former coach Buddy Ryan who once said, “I think with me what you see is what you get. But some people don’t like what they see.”
Philly fans also have a reputation for being a little raucous. Did you know they once booed Santa Claus and threw snowballs at him?
This year’s Eagles are an entirely different breed. Many attend regular Bible studies, they constantly talk about their faith and they say they just want to glorify God in all they do.
And one other detail separates the 2017 Eagles from their predecessors, the nice guys have a Super Bowl ring.
After Super Bowl LII, arguably the most entertaining of all time, the Eagles kept up their praise of God. Those who have been most outspoken in their faith also made a huge impact in the game.” (By IFA Staff and excerpts from article by Bob Ditmer – Read the entire uplifting article at Churchleaders.com)
