Prayers and Praying

My cousin's little two-month-old has been in and out of the hospital over the last month due to a hole in her heart. Earlier today, she had surgery to help fix the problem. I was amazed at the outpouring of encouragement and prayers of people to my post on Facebook and how neat it is to spread out the prayer chain this way. I know that my cousin (and Aunt and Uncle) appreciate all the prayers out there. The last update I heard is that the surgery went well and she came out of it healthy. Thank you for all of the prayers.

Speaking of prayers, the Tim Tebow phenomenon has been in full focus here in the 'burgh due to the Steelers travelling to Denver to play the Broncos in the first round of the playoffs. I don't get why there's so much hate for the guy and his kneeling to pray. Even if you're not a Christian or practice your faith, why does he get so much criticism for living his faith out? What if a Muslim was doing what Tebow was doing and people where ridiculing it? I can only imagine the media outrage for being intolerant and racist there could be.

I got to hear Tebow's interview with the Pittsburgh media via conference call the other day. He is just a solid character. He's got his goals and priorities in the right place. He's willing to answer any question about his faith to the fullest extent. When the questions were actually about football, he answered those very knowledgeably and humbly too.

Let's go Steelers!

Couldn't agree more with this post! Such an answer to prayer about your cousin!! "If two or more are gathered in HIS name it shall be done" Matthew 18:18-20. I am sure there were so many people believing for complete healing that day.

I LOVE Tebow!! I think he is an all-around GREAT guy!!! He has such a passion not only for FB but for life in general. God is def using him to make a HUGE impact in the lives of others. What a truly humble and Godly man. Look out Patriots!! haha!
