I was pleasantly surprised when all the players gathered to pray for Damar Hamlin. I know that many of these players do no know God personally or pray to Him regularly. But still, I think people want to believe. And when they have a critical moment they will turn to God. I really pray and hope that this tragedy will cause many to think more about God and that He will answer prayers that are genuine. And that they will have a higher regard for prayer–that He will hear all our prayers, especially prayers for salvation.

Around the nation, in response to the life-threatening injury to Buffalo Bills football player Damar Hamlin, people prayed. Hamlin’s teammates and coaches prayed. Millions of fans joined in prayer, tweeting their support. Even on live TV, sports commentators stopped in the middle of their broadcast to pray.
But this is only natural. During times of crisis, especially life and death crisis, people turn to God.
We know the situation is grave, we know we cannot change things ourselves, and we know that only God — an all-powerful being who cares — can turn the tide.
That’s why, at such times, people do not turn to atheism. They turn to God.
