Jeremy Lin is ready for the Brooklyn Nets to experience a revival.
In the first email written to his digital prayer group in months, the Nets point guard is including prayers for his new team's spiritual transformation.
"Please pray for this upcoming season. Not only that we would play well and far exceed expectations (which let's just be honest, aren't very high right now lol), but that there would be revival on our team," Lin wrote. "I'm hoping my teammates come to Christ, that lives are transformed and that we experience God's power on AND off the court this season."
The point guard also requested that people pray for his team's chemistry.
"Prayer that our team would gel quickly in terms of building friendships and learning how to play with each other well on the court," he wrote. "With many new players, many young players and a new coaching staff, we are all trying to figure things out on the fly due to lack of continuity from last year."
Lin's own spiritual life has also been transformed by making a conscious decision to pray out loud.
"Recently, I've committed to praying out loud (helps with my concentration during prayer) for 30 minutes a day and I'm thankful that my prayer life has taken a big jump forward," Lin shared with the group. "I enjoy praying for others more, prayer has become more natural and I feel closer to God through prayer."
