‘Reggie’s Prayer’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
Due to the death of a young child involved in a convenience store robbery, football superstar, Reggie Knox (Reggie White), retires at the top of his game to become a coach and a 10th grade history teacher, at principal Oaski’s (Pat Morita) inner city high school.
Mr. Portola (The Giant), the neighborhood thug, has been recruiting kids into the fringes of street crime. When a football player gets tangled up in Portola’s underworld schemes, the boy is kidnapped. A wilderness chase puts Reggie against Portola, while the life of a 16-year-old boy hangs in the balance between good and evil.
Reggie’s strong Christian faith as well as his love for God’s children is a powerful testament in this inspirational family film. Taking a lesson from Jesus’ “Parable of the Lost Sheep”, Reggie shows all of us that salvation for even one child (or lost sheep) is more important than any material possession including winning a Super Bowl ring.
Another unique film that football lovers will enjoy. Here were some highlights:
- Great eye opening, yet sad beginning.
- God can do amazing things in our lives when we realize God is greater.
- The realization that we need to all find those lost sheep, especially the ones that no one seems to notice.
- The tremendous importance of our youth.
- If we make a difference in just 1 life, our life will be a success.
- A champion is never afraid of failure.
Just how far would we be willing to go to save a soul? This movie gives us 1 example of a life dedicated to God and what the results may be.
