Tebow attends National Prayer Breakfast

Tebow gave the closing prayer to this year's National Prayer Breakfast. Tebow was introduced by Senator Johnny Isakson, of Georgia, as "a role model for the youth of America."

Tebow's prayer included his most recent eye black verses worn in the Senior Bowl game, James 1:2-4.

His prayer:

Dear Jesus, thank you for this today. Thank you for bringing together so many people that have a platform to influence people for you. Lord as we disperse today, let us be united in love, hope, and peace. Lord, let us come together as one and break down all the barriers in between us that separate us.

Lord, you came to seek and save that which is lost, and we thank you for that. Lord we don't know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future, and in that there is peace, and in that there comfort, and in that there is hope.

Lord we pray for the people all over the world that are hurting right now. The verse that comes to mind is James 1: 2-4, Consider it all joy, my brethren, whenever you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing. And we pray for the people in Haiti right now Lord, that you make them perfect and complete because you love them and have a plan for their lives, just as you do with our lives now.

So my prayer, as we leave today, that we are united as one because of you. We love you and thank you. In Jesus name, amen.

Tebow was seated on the platform along with the following:

The President of the United States, Barack Obama
The Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen
The Prime Minister of Spain and Chairman of the European Union, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero
Senator Orrin Hatch
