Tim Tebow, a former NFL quarterback had his effective prayer for a fan suffering from a debilitating seizure spark a social media frenzy Tuesday night.
Tebow was signing autographs after his first baseball game as a Scottsdale Scorpion when a fan suddenly hit the ground and started convulsing uncontrollably.
Tebow sprang into action and laid hands on the man, praying for his healing and comforting him until paramedics arrived.
The violent seizure reportedly stopped moments after Tebow prayed with him. The miraculous healing had many people take to social media expressing their amazement at the power of prayer.
This is not the first time Tebow has prayed for the sick. Earlier this year he prayed for a fellow passenger who went into cardiac arrest on a plane.
Tebow prayed with the dying man and comforted his wife while a physician worked to save his life.
“I watched Tim pray with the entire section of the plane for this man. He made a stand for God in a difficult situation,” one witness said.
Not everyone took kindly to Tebow’s actions. He faced a social media firestorm immediately after the incident, some condemning him for choosing to pray.
