Prayer Is Our Connection to Christ

Our faith in Christ will bring us the comfort we need. God’s blessings will be upon us. By always remaining in Christ, we will receive the salvation we seek in full.

Jesus said:

“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”

– Matthew 18: 20

Two high school football players were rivals on the field, but after the game, they came together to join with one another as one in prayer for healing. The mother of one of the players, Ty Jordan of West Mesquite High School, is battling cancer.

He asked his competitor, Senior Gage Smith of Sherman high school to join him in prayer for his mom and family after the game.

“I just had a moment with him praying over him, his mom, and his family,” Smith said.

Smith added that in that the moment of prayer was not about the score or being opponents, it was about showing compassion.

Jordan’s aunt posted a photo of the moment on Facebook and it went viral.

“To see that it blew up I was very surprised by it, and I wasn’t expecting it to be like that you know,” Smith said, ” I was just doing it for him and doing it for his mom and his family.”

“Football brings people together in so many different ways, and that was just one example of it that night,” Smith added.
