Does God Hear the Prayers of Superbowl Quarterbacks?

newton_manningBoth Quarterbacks in Superbowl 50 are followers of Jesus Christ, which presents a conundrum of sorts.

If both Quarterbacks are praying for a win, whose prayers does God answer?

Cam Newton (QB, Carolina Panthers):

“It’s just a God thing. I thank God every single day. I’m just His instrument and He’s using me on a consistent basis daily. [God is] using me to extend His word and I’m a prime example of how God could turn something that was bad into something that was very great… If God is with me who can be against me.”

Peyton Manning (QB, Denver Broncos):

“My faith has been number one since I was thirteen years old and heard from the pulpit on a Sunday morning in New Orleans a simple question: ‘If you died today, are you one hundred percent sure you’d go to heaven?’ Cooper was there and Eli [Peyton’s two brothers] but it didn’t hit them at the time the way it did me. It was a big church, and I felt very small, but my heart was pounding. The minister invited those who would like that assurance through Jesus Christ to raise their hands, and I did. Then he invited us to come forward, to take a stand, and my heart really started pounding. And from where we sat, it looked like a mile to the front. But I got up and did it. And I committed my life to Christ, and that faith has been most important to me ever since.”
