CBN Sports at Super Bowl XLVII

CBN Sports is behind the scenes bringing stories of faith from the Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. Read Transcript


Reporter: HELLO, AND

WELCOME TO MERCEDES BENZ

SUPER DOME HERE IN NEW

ORLEANS FOR THE COVERAGE OF

SUPER BOWL XLVII, WHERE THE

BALTIMORE RAVENS AND THE SAN

FRANCISCO 49ers WILL

BATTLE IT OUT.

NOW THEY'RE HERE HUNGRY FOR

A SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP.

WING FOR THE 49ers WOULD

MEAN THEIR SIXTH SUPER BOWL

CHAMPIONSHIP, AND FOR THE

RAVENS, THEIR SECOND.

PLAYERS FROM BOTH TEAMS

UNDERSTAND, YES, THEY MAY BE

HUNGRY, BUT THERE IS A VOID

THAT CAN'T BE FILLED JUST BY

SIMPLY WINNING A SUPER

BOWL.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST STORIES

OF THE SEASON IS HOW COLIN

KAEPERNICK WON THE STARTING

JOB AFTER ALEX SMITH FELL TO

INJURY.

HE LITERALLY WEARS HIS

CHRISTIAN FAITH ON HIS

ARMS.

ON HIS RIGHT BICEP, HE HAS

THE WORD "FAITH."

HE SAYS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS

THE TRUE SOURCE OF HIS

POWER.

HE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE ON

LEAN ON.

MY FAITH IS ALWAYS SOMETHING

THAT HAS KEPT MY FEET

PLANTED ON THE GROUND.

Reporter: VERNON DAVIS

AND PATRICK WILLIS ARE AMONG

THE TOP PLAYERS AT THEIR

POSITIONS, AND THEY SAY THEY

GIVE GOD ALL OF THE CREDIT

FOR THEIR SUCCESS, AND SAY

WHILE WINNING THE SUPER BOWL

WOULD BE GREAT, WHATEVER

HAPPENS OUT ON THE FIELD,

HONORING GOD IS MOST

IMPORTANCE.

I GIVE GOD ALL OF THE

GLORY.

EVERYTHING WE DREAMED OF AND

PRAYED ABOUT, I MEAN IT'S

HAPPENING NOW.

I'M VERY THANKFUL, AND I

CONSIDER THIS AS A BLESSING

TO BE ABLE TO BE HERE.

BECAUSE IT IS NOT EVERY YEAR

THAT THE 49ers WAKE UP AND

THEY'RE IN THE SUPER BOWL.

IT IS TRULY GOOD.

I SAY ABOUT 10 PRAYERS A

GAME.

I WILL ALWAYS END IT WITH,

AND I ALWAYS SAY, LORD, LET

YOUR WILL BE DONE TODAY.

AND WOOFERS WHAT HAPPENS,

WHEN THE GAME IS OVER, I

KNOW IN MY HEART I GIVE YOU

MY ALL.

DON'T GET ME WRONG, IF WE

LOSE, I STILL DON'T SLEEP

LIKE I WANT TO, BUT I DON'T

LET IT GET ME THE WAY I USED

TO.

BECAUSE I PRAYED AND HIS

WILL WILL BE DONE.

Reporter: DAVID IS ONE

OF THE LONGEST PLAYERS ON

THE TEAM.

THIS SEASON HAS BEEN A

STRUGGLE DUE TO INJURIES.

BUT HE REMEMBERS THAT

REGARDLESS OF THE

SITUATIONS, GOD ALWAYS HAS A

PLAN.

I BELIEVE WE'RE ALL HERE

FOR A PURPOSE, AND TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT WHAT THAT PURPOSE

IS.

AS LONG AS YOU LOVE GOD, YOU

KNOW HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU,

AND YOU'VE GOT TO KEEP

WORKING IN THE SITUATION

YOU'RE IN.

THE BIGGEST THING I TRY

TO DO IS GIVE EVERYTHING TO

GOD.

MY STRESSES, EVERYTHING.

GO OUT AND LIVE FOR HIM, AND

IT WILL WORK OUT.

THIS IS FUN, THIS IS A GAME,

BUT IN THE END, I'M NOT

GOING TO HAVE THIS WHEN I

DIE.

AND THE BIGGEST THING IS

BEING ABLE TO, YOU KNOW, GO

BE WITH HIM ONE DAY AND HANG

OUT WITH HIM.

THERE COULD BE A SUPER BOWL

UP THERE.

YOU NEVER KNOW.

Reporter: FANS

RECOGNIZE THE BALTIMORE

RAVENS AS ONE OF THE MOST

FEARED TEAMS IN THE AFC.

BUT WHAT IS OFTEN OVERLOOKED

IS MANY OF THE PLAYERS SHARE

A COMMON BROTHERHOOD THAT IS

BIGGER THAN THE GAME.

JUST ASK JOHN HARBAUGH.

HE IS GOING TO PUT IN

STRONG, FAITHFUL MEN.

RIGHT HERE IS OUR PASTOR.

I THINK OUR GUYS DRAW

STRENGTH FROM THAT.

THAT'S MY LORD AND

SAVIOR.

WITHOUT HIM, I'M NOTHING.

Reporter: TERRELL SUGGS

IS ONE OF THE PLAYERS FOR

THE RAVENS DEFENSE, BUT HE

HAD TO SIT OUT BECAUSE OF

MEDICAL INJURIES.

AND IT DIDN'T LOOK LIKE HE

WOULD MAKE IT BACK DURING

THE SEASON, BUT HE SAYS GOD

WORKED A MIRACLE.

FOR MY INJURY, THEY TOLD

ME NINE MONTHS TO A YEAR.

AND I CAME BACK IN FIVE AND

A HALF MONTHS.

AND WE DID IT WITH A LOT OF

PRAYER.

PEOPLE ASKED, HOW DID YOU

COME BACK SO FAST?

I HONESTLY TELL THEM,

PRAYER.

NO ONE SEES RESULTS WITHOUT

FAITH.

SO YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IN

HIS WORDS.

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

LIKE I SAID, I NEEDED A

MIRACLE, AND FROM MY

KNOWLEDGE, 30 YEARS ON THIS

EARTH, THERE IS ONLY ONE

PERSON IN THE MIRACLE

BUSINESS, AND THAT'S JESUS

CHRIST.

YOU MIGHT REMEMBER THE

BOOK "THE BLIND SIDE," AND

NOW HE IS IN HIS FIRST SUPER

BOWL, AND HE GIVES ALL OF

THE GLORY TO GOD.

IT IS AMAZING JUST TO

KNOW WHAT THE ENVIRONMENT IS

I GREW UP IN, AND KNOWING

WHERE I WAS 10, 15 YEARS

AGO.

IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO

GET TO A PLACE LIKE THIS,

LET ALONE HAVE FAITH.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, I

GIVE ALL THANKS TO HIM.

Reporter: THE BIGGEST

STORY AT THIS YEAR'S SUPER

BOWL IS THAT OF RAY LEWIS,

WHEN HE ANNOUNCED THAT AT

THE END OF THE SEASON, HE

WAS GOING TO RETIRE.

NOW, RAY ALREADY HAS ONE

CHAMPIONSHIP RING, AND HE

UNDERSTANDS THAT WHILE

WINNING THE SECOND RING IS A

MAJOR GOAL, THERE IS ONE

GOAL THAT SURPASSES ALL OF

THE REST.

RINGS FADE, THEY

TARNISH.

UT FAITH I HAVE WILL NEVER

DIE.
