Heisman Trophy Winner Has This to Say in Front of Pres. Obama

Derrick Henry is the winner of the Heisman trophy, the top individual honor in college football. Past winners included Tim Tebow and many other famous players who went on to the NFL.

Derrick was invited to give the closing prayer today at the National Prayer breakfast, attended by Pres. and First Lady Obama. He was introduced by Congressman Aderholt, who said "While this outstanding young man has won the Heisman Trophy, helped the University of Alabama win a national championship, and is poised for a successful career in the NFL, he knows that in the end, his relationship with God is the most important victory in his life."

In his prayer, Derrick said, as reported in al.com, "I want to pray for my generation that every day we wake up we seek You for guidance and wisdom and one day that we can stand up here and be great leaders, be great people, men and women, to speak on unity...and how important it is to this country and this world. And Father God, I pray that...we continue to use our platform to help others and inspire others."

It is wonderful to see this young man standing up for God. The National Prayer Breakfast is where Dr. Ben Carson delivered his speech, in front of Pres. Obama, which helped catapult him into fame as he spoke truth in front of the President.
