Was praying really hard that the Vikings would win today, all I can say now is "my God my God why have you forsaken them.". :P

I prayed that God would guide all of their plays and curse Philadelphia Eagles to throw interceptions and make stupid plays.

I was hoping the forces of heaven would bless the Vikings and the forces of hell would curse the eagles. 

The Super Bowl is in my hometown this year, and so it was very important that Vikings would win this game to have a historic Superbowl in their hometown.

God taught me a valuable lesson. The Vikings got their behinds kicked worse this game than any other games all year, and this was the only game that I prayed for them to win this year. My prayers did the opposite it seems. The lesson is bless and do not curse. I should have never cursed the Philadelphia Eagles. The other lesson is that God doesn't care about football.

(I prophesy that the Patriots will win the Superbowl. . ). :P

Anyway, I asked God why he let me down, and the answer he seemed to give me is that he wins by losing.

Jesus is God incarnate.  look at how he chose to conquer. He chose to be defeated, humiliated, rejected, disappointed, tortured, abandoned by the apostles, and murdered. He chose to win by losing.

God also wants me to be happy about the Vikings losing. Just like God wants me to be happy that Christ was crucified. God wants us to be happy about disappointments. He wants us to genuinely feel joy when we are disappointed and be happy about it.

I read a book about a guy that learned that God wanted him to praise him every time something bad happened , and thank him for that bad event, and feel genuine joy about the bad thing happening. I was able to truly feel joy about the Vikings losing. By praising God for the disappointments in life, and thanking God for them, it releases God's power into the situation to bring as much good out of it as possible.

I was really looking forward to a historical game where the Vikings win the Superbowl in their hometown. Praise God they lost. Thank you Jesus. Allelujah! 

It is good for one's Health to accept all things as if they were the best. Being miserable and disappointed over it does absolutely nothing good. Being happy about it is good for the health , and morale is very important for a soldier!

It would be very easy to praise God if the Vikings had won. It is difficult to praise God now that they've lost. Praise means more to God when it's difficult

The Vikings losing was good because it taught me I can be happy and praise God for defeats and disappointments

I stopped watching soap operas 40 years ago for the same reason.  I sat there and prayed for fictional characters.  :D

I could care less about the stupid ball game now, but I can't help but feel this scripture applies to me

“Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor His ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities (sins) have separated you from God; your sins have hidden his face from you so that He will not hear” (Isaiah 59:1-2).

didn't even watch the game. I think sports are boring. It was more a test to find out if I'm delusional.
The answer is yes.
I really thought God was helping the Vikings.
Total delusion.

A reality check to show  my ability to discern God's will is poor

It's wonderful that God showed you a lesson from trivial things such as sports, @spiderman1917.
