On the heels of Buffalo Bills receiver, Damar Hamlin, nearly dying during a game with the Cincinnati Bengals, former NFL running back, Peyton Hillis, 36, was also on his deathbed after saving his children from drowning on a Florida beach.
He was airlifted to a nearby hospital in critical condition but is now on the road to recovery.
In an Instagram Post, Hamlin’s girlfriend, Angela Cole asked for people to continue praying for Hamlin because he still has a long way to go, The Blaze reports.
Cole continued that prayer, “truly makes all the difference.”
But she wasn’t the only one to credit, prayer for making a difference, so did Former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III.
“There is POWER in prayer!” Griffin tweeted. “Peyton Hillis is off the ventilator and doing much better in his recovery. Awesome job by the medical professionals caring for him.”
And of course, we know of the prayers that went up Hamlin after he collapsed to the ground after tackling a Bengal receiver, requiring CPR to restart his heart. This included a prayer uttered on his behalf live on ESPN.
