Ja Morant posted a prayer. It is always lovely to see famous people not ashamed of their faith and talking about it publicly. Demonstrating their position of faith is an excellent reinforcement for those who are ridiculed or even persecuted by God.
A fantastic example is one of the rising NBA basketball stars, Ja Morant, from the Memphis Grizzlies team.
In healing the trauma he suffered during the match, Ja Morant shared with her fans that he trusts God during rehabilitation, which gives him the strength to endure pain.
Ja Morant suffered an ankle sprain in a Monday’s match with the Brooklyn team. The trauma was severe, and medics took him out of the square in a wheelchair. ESPN reports that treatment may take up to 6 weeks.
The next day, the athlete posted a prayer text on his Twitter account. “Prayer For Today: Dear God, I bring to You my burdens,” Morant wrote. “You know my situation. I can’t do it without you. Comfort my heart, give me strength, and help me carry on. Amen.”
A few minutes later, Morant also re-tweeted a Bible verse someone had posted about his injury and rehab. “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 12:24”. Ja Morant wrote optimistically in his tweet, “I know God is working, so I smile.”
“ Prayer For Today: Dear God, I bring to You my burdens. You know my situation. I can’t make it without You. Comfort my heart, give me strength and help me carry on. Amen. “ 🙏🏽— Ja Morant (@JaMorant) December 29, 2020
He was named Rookie of the Year last season, averaging seven assists and 17.8 points. The results this season are even more impressive. Morant is 12th in the NBA league, scoring 26.3 points per game.
He was a runaway winner for the season’s top rookie, receiving 99 out of 100 first-place votes. But, in a first-round pick out of Murray State, Morant got last year that winning Rookie of the Year was a goal.
“Being named rookie of the year felt great, honestly,” Morant told The Undefeated. “There are not many people you can name who have won that award. It definitely was an honor. Something I was working for all year. I also told my family once I got drafted that I was going to win the award. To be able to win it and back up my words was something good.”
