PSU, Nebraska Players Pray for Victims, Healing

The Nebraska and Penn State players gathered at midfield before the game, kneeling together for prayerfor in a quiet stadium.

Sometimes, the most powerful statements are the simplest.

Saturday's game was a combination of pep rally, cleansing and tribute for a Penn State community rocked by the child sex-abuse scandal involving former assistant Jerry Sandusky that cost Joe Paterno his job.

Ah, Mike!
Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
The Scripture is clear that God desires to have all people come to Him in prayer, but He has specified that they must come according to His instructions. Prayer is a privilege limited to those who have come to trust in Jesus Christ as Savior.
summary for, Four Characteristics of Biblical Prayer

This is an improper use for prayer, and whatever they prayed for no doubt was ignored by God, and as I pointed out praying with Muhammadans? and the other article about, Was Muhammad a Pedophile?.

This was not even a close to the proper use for Prayer.

Explain how it was misuse. Or are you assuming they were merely praying to be seen, a big assumption indeed?
Sandusky had likely become infamous in his circles for his decades of unrepentant evil. Perhaps there's been a little snickering going around about him by his fellow coaches and even team members.

"And when I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down astonied."
-Ez 9:3

Wonder if the coaches thought of this form of repentance and prayer instead of just kneeling since more than just a few knew of his proclivity to rape boys, took this evil so lightly and at least one assistant didn't immediately tackle Sandusky to the shower-room floor while calling 911.

That is just it Jim, I think that the majority of Christians or self-proclaimed Christians in America think this is the way to pray. At the national day of prayer I drove by our courthouse and actually saw people prostrate while praying. We have forsaken the prayer closet for public acceptance. We can contribute this to another SA thread about everyone owning a bible and no one reading it!!!

Both schools need a lot of prayer, I would those who see this look at the thread, Are colleges becoming 'boot camps' for 'gay' activists?, so I won't repeat what I said there.

A public prayer? with Muhammadans (Oh by the way, Was Muhammad a Pedophile?, atheists, etc., a valid form of Prayer? No, and that's a resounding No!

As a politically astute move, which helped calm the situation, one might hope God will overlook this hopefully onetime misuse of prayer, at least one time for any Christians who might have happened to participate in this behavior.
