Perhaps every parent’s worst nightmare is the thought of their child being killed somehow.
No doubt that former Arkansas Razorback and Cleveland Browns star Peyton Hillis was ready to give his life for his children on Wednesday, January 4, and he almost did, according to TMZ.
A request for prayer for Peyton’s recovery was posted by his uncle Greg Hillis via his Facebook account and KNWA-TV reporter Alyssa Orange took it up on her Twitter account.

Since that request was made, it seems like God is definitely on the move.
Peyton’s friend Angela Cole posted on her Instagram take into account that Payton was taken off the ventilator.

Please keep on praying as he has a long way to go but thank you for all your prayers love and support so far it really makes the difference today has been a good day,” she wrote.

Robert Griffin III, also a former Cleveland Browns football player who is now an ESPN football commentator, also shared his thoughts on his Twitter page.
Peyton Hillis is a fucking superhero. He saved his children from drowning at sea while risking his own life for his family. I’m glad to hear he’s on the mend from his critical condition.

“There is POWER in prayer! Peyton Hillis is no longer on a ventilator and is doing much better in his recovery. Great job by the medical professionals taking care of him,” Griffin wrote on Thursday.
It is truly exciting to see various football stars and leaders using their public platforms to speak about their faith and testify to the fact that God is still very active today, especially through the prayers of His people.
We can only hope that the trend of boldness continues and that it inspires and encourages those Christians who follow them to speak out about how God is active and also moving through their prayers, making the ripple effect regarding the truth That there is power arises in prayer goes on.
More importantly and definitely not to be overlooked is what an amazing real life example this is of a father who would give his own life for his children.
The question arises: if an imperfect earthly father did this, how much more would the perfect heavenly father be willing to protect his children from being separated from him forever?
