ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - A lot of people find themselves praying during the final minutes of the Super Bowl — but do you think it actually helps?

Some Super Bowl XLVII stars don’t shy away from talking about their faith.

“Every day of my life I’ve always had a conversation with him.” — Baltimore’s Ray Lewis

“My faith is something I lean on every day, just to make sure I’m doing the right things.” — San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick.

But are they praying to win?

A new survey from the Public Religion Research Institute finds nearly three out of ten Americans say God does play a role in the outcomes of sporting events….and a majority 53% believe that God rewards athletes who have faith with good health and success, compared to 42% who disagree.

In the midwest, 28% of us believe God picks sides — 36% feel that way in the south.
