In a tweet on his Twitter page on Thursday, New England Patriots tight end and outspoken Christian Benjamin Watson (#84) said about a prayer before the Patriots preseason game against the Carolina Panthers that “in victory or defeat … we would give him glory.”

“Our prayer before the game was that in victory or defeat, health or injury, success or failure[,] we would give him glory because He alone is sovereign and worthy,” wrote Ben Watson in a tweet. “‘Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory.’ Revelation 19”

In the game, Watson was targeted twice, receiving one pass for 10 total yards for the game, according to NFL.com. New England had a total of 187 passing yards in the game and averaged 4.4 per play.

The New England Patriots (3-0) won the game against the Carolina Panthers (2-1) by a score of 10-3, scoring on only two of 10 drives. The first score was an one-yard touchdown run by J. Develin, and the second score was a 23-yard field goal by S. Gostkowski.

Watson and the Patriots will open the regular season against AFC rival Pittsburgh on Sept. 08, 2019 in Gillette Stadium.
