Super Bowl Prayers: Will God Determine Winning Team?

More Americans than usual will probably be praying this Sunday- this by implication, according to a report this week by CNN, summarized by Religion Today.

No, it’s not the National Day of Prayer or another Billy Graham crusade- it’s the Super Bowl, and millions of Americans will tune in to watch the San Francisco 49ers take on the Baltimore Ravens while inhaling massive amounts of chicken wings.

The poll, undertaken by the Public Religion Research Institute, found that a quarter of Americans believe God influences the outcome of sporting events. The poll also found that more than a quarter of Americans believe “God rewards athletes who have faith with good health and success.”

So, what do you think?  Does God orchestrate sports wins, and if so, will you be praying this Sunday?
