‘God Is Forcing Us to Rest’: Christian Sports Stars Talk Spiritual Growth during Lockdown

What is your response?

If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
