Interesting piece about the spontaneous outpouring of support for Fabrice Muamba and how it manifested itself as prayer
Prayer is natural for footballers
It seems the family are Christians and so regardless of the reasons and what people think of prayer and belief in general it seems to have been spot on. Listened to a very interesting In Our Time podcast on prayer a few weeks ago and they discussed how humans seem to be hard-wired to look to the Divine. I will link to it when I get a chance.
Regardless of all that the signs for Fabrice have been more positive than we could have ever hoped for when we were watching/listening to the events unfolding at Whitehart Lane. Hope he makes a full recovery and my prayers are with him and his family.
