    I believe that having faith in God helps most people live better, happier, and healthier lives. So I would say that, yes, God helps athletes to be better at their sport.

      I'm going to go with "No," as far as direct help is concerned. God has gifted some at birth with greater talents than others, and these talents can either be honed or neglected.

      But if you're asking if God answers the prayer of the team asking for the big win on game day, then my answer is no. I don't think God even cares about artificial struggles.

      Unless it's OU playing. God's a known Sooner fan.

        . . . only if that athlete is a calvinist . . . . . . .

          If I ever pray before a match I will pray "God save this team. May what they do and who they are glorify You."

          And if that one gets answered I'll switch "save" to "bless".

          After that, it's up to the players and their training.

            Better athletes are helped more than inferior athletes, sure.

                      Nope. God does not micromanage the lives of athletes. Win or lose is up to the skill, training, and conditions out on the field. Even things that look like dumb luck can be chalked up to fatigue on the part of the opposing time or even field conditions (the ball does a strange bounce off a rock).

                        If yes, why is God so mad at the City of Cleveland?

                            No...what a hilarious thought.

                            It's about skill, talent and plain ol' hard work.
