I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we thank You for NFL Stars that are bold to preach the gospel and are unashamed of Jesus Christ. Would you protect Cooper Kupp and his wife Anna Marie. Would they continue to grow their relationship with You, and would hundreds of athletes be saved because of their boldness to share their faith.

From CBN News: Anna Marie Kupp, the wife of Los Angeles Rams Wide Receiver Cooper Kupp, put their Christian faith front and center this week while posting an Instagram video of the couple embracing on the field after his big playoff win at SoFi Stadium.

“This moment. These moments!!! Thanking God for every one of them. We have prayed for a season to glorify our Savior Jesus Christ and you are doing just that my lovey @cooperkupp. SURREAL!!” Anna Marie wrote.

She describes herself in her Instagram bio as a “Child of the King. Football Wifey.”

Before the postseason, Cooper became the fourth player in NFL history to earn the triple crown with 145 receptions, 1,947 receiving yards, and 16 receiving touchdowns, all of which led the league. Since then he’s helped his team with crucial catches and touchdowns to win the playoff games that got them to the Super Bowl.

As CBN News reported, Cooper has said if it wasn’t for Anna Marie, he probably wouldn’t even be playing in the NFL.

The 28-year-old and his wife, who first met in high school, have relied on each other and their Christian faith since the start of his football career.

“We just were so aligned in terms of what our goals were and what we wanted to do moving forward and what we wanted to be about as a couple,” Cooper told ESPN. “And the belief that football was the community, was the place that I was supposed to be, that we were supposed to be, and that’s where God placed us.”

While they attended Eastern Washington University, Anna Marie worked at a restaurant to help pay for their college expenses. Cooper had simply become too tired from working his job to keep playing his best at football.

“I supported us monetarily through college,” Anna Marie said. “I was working full time so that he didn’t have to worry about that so that he could focus.”

Cooper praised Anna for pushing him to work hard.

“Without a doubt, there’s no doubt in my mind, not only would I not be here where I am today without her or accomplishing the things that I would be doing,” Cooper admitted. “I really believe I may not be in this … I may not be in the NFL if it wasn’t for her and what she has inspired in me and pushed me to do.”

He told CBN in 2019 that he is grateful for Anna’s support and that God will always be his ultimate source of hope.

“At the very basic levels of my life – as a husband, as a father, as a football player, knowing how much of a failure I am at these things if it wasn’t for my faith if it wasn’t for knowing that Christ has told me who I am in His eyes and know that how far short I fall in all these things, that He’s bridged every gap and that He’s called me to even greater things,” he stated. . . .

So why didn’t you after the win? Not a word in the post-game interview giving thanks and glory to God and your Savior Jesus Christ. Disappointing.

    Just some thoughts 😀:

    I heard him mention God in the post game interview. (And he has openly confessed Christ in another interview earlier this year). I agree that it would have been nice for him to have said Jesus’ name today (I was listening to see if he would mention the Lord) but in the context he was in a very unique situation and if he had planned to say more than he did it can be understandable. Sometimes we may forget to say the details of what we wanted to say.

    Online I found this quote: “I do not feel deserving,” Kupp said in a post-game interview. “God is so good.”

    And a week ago on February 7 sports spectrum said on a Twitter post: @RamsNFL wide receiver Cooper Kupp shares how he finds his purpose in Christ.

A believer in Jesus Christ
February 13, 2022

Cooper Kupp went on to be the key player in a Rams 23-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. After hearing his inspiring story I pray God continues to bless his family. Most importantly may Cooper Kupp and his wife’s faith in Jesus Christ inspire other young couples to do the same. Without faith in Jesus Christ the world is a dark place to walk alone. YOU ARE NEVER ALONE IF YOU TRUST YOUR LIFE IN JESUS.

Thank God for athletes and spouses who put their faith on display. I am turned off by professional sports that have made sports a political platform. I have not watched an NBA game this year, nor a Cowboys game (I live in the DFW area)…for that reason. But maybe I will watch Cooper tomorrow. I suspect there will be other outspoken believers on the field, on both sides. May their testimony and “message” be louder than any other.

Wow so great to hear that the best wide receiver in the NFL is doing it for the glory of God his wife and kids his loved ones the body of Christ his team. I hope he has a whale 🐳 of a game. So great 😀 to hear this and not about another self absorbed football player or narcissistic pro athlete in love with themselves. And that we all should feel sorry 😐 for them because they only make millions of dollars and travel first class and eat the best food stay at first class hotels and the best training facilities and receiving the best care from doctors and the best health benefits. Kupp just shuts up and plays football 🏈 and it got him to the super bowl. The majority of football players will never get to one in their life. But they will keep bitching about how persecuted they are and how America is so terrible to them. Wah 😩 Wah 😭 Wah 😩 I want my rattle.

You are someone that the younger people can look up to…This is so much better than that segment about giving an award to people in that weird community of people on the award show. They don’t realize they are stumbling blocks. We pray that our kids do not look up to anyone with that lifestyle.

Glad to hear a real “MAN,” speak of his faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. As compared to others the difference is striking and should be a beacon for the lost souls playing in the National Felon League…Jaylan Ramsey same thing, I thank God for their lives and their testimony.

If he really wanted to glorify the Lord, why would he break the Sabbath/Lord’s Day? “The sabbath is to be sanctified by a holy resting all that day, even from such worldly employments and recreations as are lawful on other days…”

    Eveline Franje
    February 12, 2022

    Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath. Matthew 12:1-14. The Pharisees observed the Sabbath to the letter, but Jesus did not favor them for it. Romans 14:5 says: One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. (I hope you will read the following verses as well, and meditate on them). I observe the Sabbath day myself, but I worked as a RN for many years. When a man has an emergency on Sunday, he is relieved that there are health professionals there to take care of his problem. There is an emergency to sow the seeds, the fields are white. All we do should be for the glory of God. Cooper and his wife have chosen to glorify God through his games. Who am I to judge God’s calling?

So good to hear this about Cooper and his wife Anna. I absolutely feel they will inspire many to realize that having faith in God and Jesus Christ is truly the best and only way to live. I did at one time doubt the existence of God but now know in my heart if you want to live a meaningful life believing in the Lord will bring you happiness more than any material thing. It doesn’t matter how much you have because everyone tires of material goods but believing in God gets better every day.

Praises and prayers for this couple to keep on glorifying God from the platform God has given them. Many young people look up to athletes, so prayers Cooper and his wife will remain faithful in lifting up Jesus’s name. Grateful they are courageous in speaking God’s truth, even in the midst of our current cancel culture. Prayers for their protection and continued ministry – an example for each of us to follow in our less but nonetheless important to God spheres of influence. http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com

Yes, this is encouraging, that this couple steps out in faith to be bold for the Lord. Personally, I stopped watching the NFL several years ago due to their extreme liberalism, which I cannot support at all. This is actually refreshing to read> I pray that their faith will have a profoundly positive impact upon the NFL players.

Wow this testimony encourages me on in my walk with Jesus Christ yhe author and finisher of my faith! As an old athlete myself I can honestly say that without Christ I truly would be nothing. The strength and stamina that he’s giving me even in my older years is beyond my understanding. I am so grateful Jesus Christ is alive and real in my life and I pray that everyone will come to the knowledge of their need for him in every thing.

As Esther faced the biggest decision of her life, and placed her own life on the line for the sake of her people.
Cooper and Ann Marie you are both continuing in the witness of Christ Jesus knowing the risks in our own nation for the first time ever in which Christians are being targeted in many areas. May your hearts stay connected and steadfast in the Lord Jesus Christ, as prayers for all who are putting themselves on the front lines are being sent.
