Millions were brought together in prayer after Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin collapsed on the football field. It wasn’t just the players on the field or the fans in the stadium but millions of viewers from across the country and worldwide watched the game.
Here are 4 things you should know:
#1: It was one of the biggest spontaneous displays of public prayer.
It was uplifting to see his teammates and other players drop to their knees, not in protest but in prayer, huddled in a circle around their fallen comrade.
After Damar Hamlin was brought to the hospital, another prayer circle of fans formed outside.
#2: What happened?
During a live NFL game, Buffalo Bills defensive back Damar Hamlin collapsed after a hard tackle by Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins. Hamlin got up but immediately collapsed from an apparent heart attack.
#3: Prayers on social media.
Millions took to social media to offer their prayers for Hamlin to recover.
Dion Dawkins Tweeted: “Prayer is power and Prayer is POWERFUL we need the world to pray for Damar Hamlin and his family.”
Tim Tebow Tweeted: “Please join me in prayer for Damar Hamlin.”
And over 42 million saw the Buffalo Bills post of the players huddled in prayer for Hamlin.
#4: Damar! Faith?
Damar Hamlin had a hard life. His father was arrested and sent to jail when he was a young boy, leaving his mother to take care of the family. She worked 2 jobs just to make ends meet.
Damar said he got through these difficult times through his faith in God. Damar once said, “My faith is in God. So, whatever he has planned for me, that’ll be it.”
The mainstream media and academia love to tell us that Christianity in the U.S. is quickly dying here in the United States.
Imagine their surprise at the millions who showed that belief in God is still strong in America.
