On Sunday, New York Football Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. fell to his knees in prayer at MetLife Stadium before millions of fans.
Beckham recently took to Instagram to share with his 11.5 million followers that he dedicated his life to Jesus. In July, Beckham was on a trip to Israel when he decided to be baptized. The wide receiver shared a photo of the experience captioning it, “FRESH START…What a time ! #Jerusalem #ImForgiven”
Since then Beckham has posted several photos with captions voicing his love and gratitude for God.
While in Israel Beckham posted a photo of him riding on a camel captioning it, “couldn’t of asked for anything more!!!! God I can’t thank u enough for this one. My journey is just beginning…”
In August he posted a photo of him seemingly signing a contract for the New York Giants captioned, “God, I can’t even put into words my gratitude. This is only the beginning… #ImThankful”
This weekend, Beckham played in his first game since breaking his ankle in October and the player decided to capture the moment with a series of Instagram posts. Instead of posting a photo of himself while playing, Beckham took the opportunity to give glory to God. The wide receiver posted a photo of himself on his knees praying and captioned it, "Lord, I come to you at this time... not to ask you for anything... but just to say Thank You."
In an earlier post, Beckham wrote, "Mind. Body. Soul. Spirit. God I can't thank u enough for completely puttin me back together and givin me another opportunity. It's OUR time. #ELEVATE.”
Beckham and the New York Giants will face the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday at 8:20 pm EST.
