Head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles Doug Pederson, following the Eagles’ historic first Super Bowl win in Super Bowl LII over the New England Patriots, led his team in the Lord’s Prayer after his post-game speech in the locker room on Sunday.

“Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name,” recited the Eagles’ team as led by coach Doug Pederson. “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen!”

The Lord’s Prayer, Our Father or Pater Noster, as it is sometimes called, comes from Matthew 6:9-13, as can be seen on Bible Gateway.

Before the prayer, coach Pederson wrapped up the Eagles’ Super Bowl victory with a speech, asking his team, “Are we done?” to which the team answered resoundingly, “Yes!”

“We done, baby,” responded Pederson to the team.

Lauding the team and organization, and telling them how proud he is of their efforts and what they have all accomplished, the Eagles’ coach told his players, “We’re world champions – world champions.”

 

Then, recalling how they got to this point, coach Pederson told them, “You know, you guys get on me a lot about, you know, dress code and the way we practice and doing things. Well, guess what? It’s for this moment right here, for this moment. It’s the discipline that it takes, okay, to win this game – to win this game, and this is a team game, okay?

“We said before, an individual can make a difference,” he continued, “but a team makes a miracle. And tonight, guys, tonight, you did it. You did it against a fine football team.

“When you’re asked, you’re complimentary,” the coach concluded, “but at the same time, we’re going to party.”

The Eagles then took a knee, and as coach Doug Pederson led, the team recited the Lord’s Prayer in the locker room.
