As I was watching the Broncos lose yesterday, several times the camera cut to the sidelines to show Tim Tebow on one knee, head bowed, eyes closed, verbally praying. You can imagine what he was praying for. He wasn’t praying for a cure for cancer. He wasn’t beseeching god to fill the empty stomachs of starving children. He wasn’t imploring the almighty to aid the escape of rape victims across the world. Those things could wait.
Tim Tebow was praying for god’s assistance to win a football game.
