All the world knows that Tim Tebow prays mightily during football games. They may not exactly understand what he is praying FOR, though. I am confident that he is just giving God glory and thanking Him for whatever happens. Many probably think he is praying just to win, but Tim has made it a matter of public record that he is ten times more excited about glorifying God and preaching -- even in prisons -- than he is about playing football. In fact, he states that he plays football just to give him a platform to do the above - not win - but glorify and preach. (Listen to the amazing talk he gave at a Prison Fellowship reception in 2010 on that note).
It looks like others will be praying against him during Saturday's game: USA Today headline --
It sounds like, through their dark incantations, they mean to pray for Tebow to LOSE. The first thing I thought of when I read that was the famous prayer contest that went on between Elijah and the prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel in I Kings 18. Of course, there are a lot of differences between Tebow and Elijah and this situation and that one, not the least of which is the divine certification of a prophet. But there is at least one similarity: In giving unflinching honor to God and to prayer, Tim Tebow has troubled a lot of people, even as Elijah was called a "Troubler of Israel."
In any case, it is going to be an interesting game tomorrow.
