Heisman Winner Derrick Henry: “Always Pray”

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 12/14/15

Great advice: 

In his speech accepting the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night, Alabama running back Derrick Henry said that he gets on his knees every night and prays and advised kids to keep God first, always pray, and know that God will hear their cry. “I just want to talk to the kids that are looking and watching this TV today,” Henry said. “I just want to give you all advice. I am hoping I am someone you can idolize yourself behind and look up to because God is everything. Always keep God first. Always pray. Don’t be afraid to pray. He always hears your cry.”
