Tim Tebow’s Prayers Helped Save A Man’s Life On Airplane


Tim Tebow might not be able to accurately throw a football to a wide receiver but when it comes to throwing a prayer in God’s direction, Tebow is as accurate as they come.

According to a Facebook post from Richard V Gotti, Tebow was on a flight from Atlanta, GA to Phoenix, AZ when one passenger suffered what is being called a “medical emergency.” The Delta Airlines crew tried all they could to help the man but had no such luck.

Step in one Tim Tebow.

The former Heisman Trophy winner showed up out of nowhere, and did what he does best – prayed.

All of a sudden, the guy’s pulse returned.

Here’s the story told by Richard on his Facebook page:

I have to share this story! I was traveling on Delta Airlines Flight Number 1772 from Atlanta, Georgia to Phoenix, Arizona when there was a medical emergency on board. An older gentleman began having what appeared to be heart problems, and he went unconscious. I watched strangers from all over the world and every ethnicity come to the help of this man for over an hour! Whether it was chest compressions, starting an IV, helping breathe life into this man, or praying everyone helped! I listened to shock after shock from the AED machine and still no pulse. No one gave up. I observed people praying and lifting this man up to the Lord in a way that I’ve never seen before. The crew of Delta Airlines were amazing. They acted in a fast and professional manner! Then all of a sudden, I observed a guy walking down the aisle. That guy was Tim Tebow. He met with the family as they cried on his shoulder! I watched Tim pray with the entire section of the plane for this man. He made a stand for God in a difficult situation. The plane landed in Phoenix and that was the first time they got a pulse back! Please share this with your friends! Pray for this man and his family, and also thank God that we still have people of faith who in times of difficulty look to the Lord!
