In Others’ Words: What Peyton Manning Prays
Am I celebrating the Denver Broncos winning Super Bowl 50? Yes, yes, I am.
I also realize some of you reading this post may be Panther fans, so understand that while I’m celebrating, I’m not gloating. Sports is always about winning and losing, and Broncos’ fans have experienced both.
Which brings me to today’s quote … and the intriguing truth that two-time Super Bowl winning NFL quarterback Peyton Manning does not pray to win. A life-long competitor who does not pray for victory.
Peyton Manning understands life is not counted by wins and losses. That, while there is something to be said about winning not one, but two Super Bowl rings — one-of-a-kind jewelry is not how you measure the worth of a man.
Broncos’ fans look at our vivid blue and orange sunsets and insist God is a Broncos’ fan, too. But Manning doesn’t think God even cares about football — except how it might help form a person’s character.
I’ve always said Peyton Manning is a class act, and I’m not the only person to say that. But now I know Manning has a wise perspective on life, too.
In Your Words: No, I’m not asking about the Super Bowl today. I’d like your thoughts on Peyton Manning’s prayer. How has winning — or losing — influenced your character? And when we talk of winning or losing, we know it happens both in sports and other arenas, so share however it applies to your life.
