The Kansas City Chiefs’ MVP Patrick Mahomes‘ ankle is getting some serious prayer.
Asbury United Methodist Church in Prairie Village has been interceding for Mahomes, who suffered a severe knee injury in a Thursday night game against the Denver Broncos. The website Everything Lubbock reported the story. Lubbock, Texas, home of Texas Tech University, is where Mahomes played college football.
“With the last two games, we kind of thought that they may need some type of help,” Dave Burton, facilities director for the church, said before the latest injury. “We knew that his ankle was injured so we decided to possibly have a healing service to help him heal that ankle quicker.”
The church held prayer services Sunday morning to ask for God’s help in healing Mahomes’ injuries. The church sent up a mention for any other NFL teams and their fans. So far, it hasn’t received any prayer requests for the Chiefs’ opponents.
Mahomes recently discussed facing adversity this season because of injuries and inconsistent play
“I’ve definitely been through adverse times when I was in college of not winning the game I felt like we could have won,” he told ESPN “There were certain times at Texas Tech when we didn’t do the things we wanted to as an offense to find ways to win. My first year here, the team went through a little stretch where they weren’t winning games.
“It’s a long season. You can figure it out…. There [are] difficult times in the NFL. Teams are good, and we’ve played some great opponents so far this season, and we’ll have to find a way to get this thing rolling again.”
