"Supporters Stress Significance of Seeking Savior’s Service for Steelers Sensation" 

By Ramesh C. Reddy
Pittsburgh Standard

Steeler nation took it hard when news about their beloved quarterback Ben Roethlisberger being injured in a motorcycle accident reached the airwaves. Fans turned to prayer and it worked as Roethlisberger was released from  Mercy Hospital of Pittsburgh, a faith based hospital around 11:45 p.m. on Wed, June 14.

Pastor Maurice Trent of Cathedral of Hope on Fisher Street was the first to address fans who were wondering why God allowed the accident to happen to Roethlisberger.

“God does not allow those things to happen. Everyone has free will in life. Those things happen. My understanding is the lady made an illegal turn and due to the illegal turn she hit him. It is not something God did”, said Pastor Trent.

Pastor Trent believed the most important way fans can support Roethlisberger is praying for him before the Great Physician, Jesus Christ.

“Prayer works. The best thing we can do now is everybody come together and pray for him”, said Pastor Trent.

Nick Balzer, a believer in Jesus Christ had come to Mercy to give a greeting card to Roethlisberger. Balzer also believed in the power of prayer and gathered together fans those waiting to hear news of Roethlisberger’s condition and led them in prayer while the surgeons operated on Roethlisberger.

 Watch a clip of Balzer lead the group in prayer in Jesus Name!

 As Balzer was praying outside of Mercy, Sherry Williams, a medical worker in Ohio came to Pittsburgh to pray with the chaplain and others inside Mercy Hospital.



Watch Williams emphasize prayer.

Power of prayer providentially promoted Roethlisberger’s rescue as surgeons after a 7-hour ordeal, listed Roethlisberger from serious but stable condition to fair and stable condition.

Many believe prayer does make a difference and the family of Roethlisberger appreciated all the prayers and support coming for Roethlisberger.
