Earlier this week, Tim Tebow wowed fans once again with his compassion and trust in God when he dropped everything to pray for a fan suffering from a seizure. Tebow said of the experience, “I know the God I get to serve is a God that always performs miracles in people’s lives, every day, all the time.”
Tebow was signing autographs after a baseball game on October 11, 2016, when he stopped to pray and lay hands on a man having a seizure. The man’s seizure stopped, and many called the incidence a miracle. Tebow tried his best to downplay his role in the event, saying that he doesn’t believe he himself has the power to perform miracles, but “in terms of the God we serve, yeah, I do believe in miracles.”
The former NFL football player turned baseball player took the time to answer some questions about the experience on Wednesday, October 12, 2016. “When the moment comes, you’ve just got to be ready to try to help people and try to care about people,” he said.
According to Tebow, the opportunity to pray for the fan was even better than the home run he hit in his first game playing for the New York Met’s minor league team. “That’s totally different than the home run. The home run’s great and it’s fun and hopefully I get to do it again soon, but in my opinion, they don’t even compare.”
