President Obama may have been the main attraction at today's National Prayer Breakfast but college football and Heisman Trophy star Tim Teblow wasn't far behind.
Tebow has been in the news recently for this so called 'controversial ad" celebrating life and family that will air during the Super Bowl this Sunday.
Tebow closed the prayer breakfast with a prayer. President Obama had left the room by the time Tebow delivered this. The video of the prayer is below along with the transcription.
Dear Jesus, thank you for this day today. Thank you for bringing together so many people that have a platform to influence people for you.
Lord as we disperse today, let us be united in love, hope, and peace. Lord, let us come together as one and break down all the barriers in between us that separate us. Lord you came to seek and save that which is lost, and we thank you for that. Lord we don't know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future, and in that there is peace, and in that there comfort, and in that there is hope.
Lord we pray for the people all over the world that are hurting right now.
The verse that comes to mind is James 1: 2-4, "Consider it all joy, my brethren, whenever you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing."
And we pray for the people in Haiti right now Lord, that you make them perfect and complete because you love them and have a plan for their lives, just as you do with our lives now.
So my prayer, as we leave today, that we are united as one because of you. We love you and thank you. In Jesus name, amen.
