John Harbaugh Leads Baltimore Ravens in the Lord’s Prayer

By Movieguide® Contributor

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is taking his faith to the locker room by leading his team in prayer.

“It is amazing to see this happening in the Ravens locker room. I’m not sure how many NFL teams are doing this, but this is absolutely special,” Christhete wrote on Instagram along with a video of Harbaugh and the Ravens.

The video shows the team take a knee before praying from Matthew 6:9-13: “Thank you, Lord. Our Father, who art in heaven. Hallowed be your name. Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.”

Many followers commented their gratitude for the team’s boldness.

“I’m a Steelers fan but I’m a much bigger fan of Jesus. Man I love this,” one person wrote.

“I don’t like the Ravens. I want to continue not liking the Ravens. This didn’t help me not like them. Respect to that group of players! Signed – a Bengals fan,” another follower commented.

Harbaugh is frequently open about his faith. In an interview with Sports Spectrum, he reflected on how he’s learned to trust God’s plan.

“Really, it comes down to trust, I do believe,” he said on Sports Spectrum’s podcast. “I trust providence. I trust God’s will, His plan. As much as anything, try to put it in His hands because when you look back, you can see where He’s brought you.”

Through the ups and downs of his career, Harbaugh’s brother, Jim, says the coach “never lost” his faith.

“His relationship with God is the thing he leans on whenever he has tough times,” Jim said. “When he didn’t get a job, he would say, ‘God has a different plan for me.’”

Movieguide® recently reported on John Harbaugh:

In a postgame press conference, Harbaugh stated, “Five hundred years from now, none of us are going to be around. Five hundred years [ago], none of us were here, so we’re given this time with these people in this place for a purpose. There’s December, and the time is December. December football has a meaning to it. It’s preparation for great events to come. You have to put yourself in position with December football for what’s to come.”

However, Harbaugh didn’t stop at just football. He spoke about the greatest event in history: the birth of Jesus.

“It’s also the Advent season,” he said. “Advent comes from the Latin [word] ‘adventus,’ which means anticipation and preparation for an amazing event, which is the coming of our Savior and celebrating the Christ — the Good News that changes the world and changes it for all eternity.”
