Poll: Some say God influences sporting events
With millions of Americans set to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, a new survey finds more than a quarter of Americans believe that God "plays a role in determining which team wins" at sports events.

The survey by the Public Religion Research Institute also found that more than half of Americans believe "God rewards athletes who have faith with good health and success."

"In an era where professional sports are driven by dollars and statistics," said institute CEO Robert P. Jones, "significant numbers of Americans see a divine hand at play." ...

James, you have to be Sermon Audios king of quotes. I think it's impressive how you dig up relevant quotes, covering various issues.

God Has Everything Under Control
excerpt from the summary for the above,
Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
....
From before creation to the end of our life God has also ordained every moment. Although He is in full control, we are not to be living irresponsible and indifferent to the world around us, but rather living every moment reverently with the ambition of being pleasing to Him. This we can do regardless of our circumstances because we can be absolutely confident He has full knowledge and is in full control over everything in our world.
This might give you an understanding of volition.

For my part I don't think God has a favorite team or anything like that. If He's watching any reality shows I'd be surprised, there really aren't any worth watching in my view. I know that He is fully aware and knows all of these things, but would He really have any interest in them? A lot of things we are just free to do. God isn't surprised by our choices as to Him they already happened, but does He really care if I buy a Ford or a Toyota? I guess I should pray that He leads me to choosing the safest one.

I can really ramble on a topic like this and just erased a bunch of stuff. The point is that players, fighters, boxers, and even American Idol wannabes, can pray that God give them success. If they are successful, then it's right to praise God. As far as the violent sports are concerned, praying for the safety of all the participants is always a good thing. We focus a lot more on the winning, but we learn a lot in both winning and losing. Team sports are a great thing when they are done right. Individual sports can also teach you a lot about yourself. It's good to praise God in all of our endeavors.

God is in charge of all thngs and works all thing for the good of those who love Him, i dont know of any exception to "All things" as by logical definition it is a universal. So God should get glory for equipping and enableing people to do their job whether it be cooking or boxing to take these gifts for granted and say my hand did this is to fall in to the folly of Nebuchadnezzar. In all things give thanks to God who provides.

Maybe others will disagree but I always cringe when I see, say a UFC fighter, boxer, etc, praying for a win or thanking god for the win. Or, when say a touchdown is made and they point up as if god had assisted them. I also cringe when on reality shows, I will see an opposing group huddled in prayer and asking god to give them the victory in whatever event they are about to perform for some prize.
I don't know...am I wrong? I would never ask God for such things. In fact, because I think I'm so undeserving of anything, I never ask for anything other than those spiritual things that I think would be God's will. I never ask for more business, more of anything, or this or that. Not that it's wrong for somebody else, I guess, but I just don't.
