American quarterback for the Oakland Raiders Derek Carr reveals that the Holy Spirit asked him to speak a prophetic word which saved the lives of three young men who were considering suicide.
The award winning Christian explained in a Facebook video that himself and his brother were invited to speak at a church event.
At the end of his sermon, the church pastor had an altar call and while it was ongoing he heard the voice of the Holy Spirit very clearly.
“The Holy Spirit tells me someone in here is going to commit suicide unless you say something.”
According to him, he struggled with sharing this given to him by the Spirit of God. Eventually, Derek chose to obey the voice of God.
“Am I really going to stand up here as the pastor is giving an altar call and be like, ‘Hey, someone is going to commit suicide,’ and no one comes up? It takes a lot of obedience to get up there and do that.”
The 26-year-old took a step further to ask the pastor of the church if he could address the audience.
“For someone in here, it got so hard, to where you were going to end your life and kill yourself and commit suicide tonight.
I’m just here to tell you Jesus loves you, that I love you, and that he has a plan for your life.”
Carr went on to disclose that a particualar man at the altar pointed to himself.
“He came up and was just balling his eyes out just standing there.”
The football star also added that his brother was also praying for another young man who also had the same intentions.
As the event came to a close, Derick stated that he met yet another man in the parking lot who was also planning to commit suicide.
“I had never met these three people in my life and I just told them how much I love them, how much God loved them, how much Jesus loved them.
All I was doing was being obedient.”
Derek Carr is known to speak freely about his Christian faith. He has indicated quite a number of times that it’s the most important thing in his life.
When the athlete recently became the NFL’s highest paid player he had announced that the first thing he would do is to pay his tithe.
