It was a disturbing picture. Players and fans immediately started praying. Across social media, people spontaneously began sending Ware messages of support. Professional athletes joined the chorus.
Michael Jordan tweeted, “Prayers go out to Kevin Ware. No athlete wants that to happen to anybody.”
Robert Griffin III tweeted, “Prayers up for Kevin Ware, his teammates, & family.”
When accidents and tragedies happen, the use of the word “prayer” multiplies. This begs the question, “Does prayer help or is it just a kind word we utilize in times of suffering?”
