Lim wrote in the email himself, entiled: Jeremy's Prayer Request 13. It wrote, "First is a praise to God for softening my prideful heart to have recently found supernatural peace and rest, regardless of my circumstances. As I start my 6th year in the NBA, I'd say I've enjoyed the first couple months of this season more than any other season, mainly because God is showing me more and more the intricacies of understanding that my identity as a person isn't in my job or performance, but in Him."
Lim has been feeling a sense of peace inside him and urge fans to continue their support and prayers. That he would stay in the state of mind that he currently is on. He wrote, "As a very emotional person, I know it can be a quick change from being in a great place mentally/spiritually to worrying and being anxious about my life and future."
The Christian athlete went on to offer prayers for his teammates, those participating in his digital prayer group and people affected by violent attacks in places like Paris, Beirut and Syria. Last year, Lin introduced the digital prayer group to fans who receive his prayer requests in an email format every couple of months.
Lin said he decided to start his prayer group after a number of his supporters inquired about ways they could intercede on his behalf. Last year, he wrote: "The journey I've been on has had its ups and downs and I appreciate all of your support throughout. Some of you have asked how to pray for me so I decided to start a prayer group where I can send out requests for those that want to pray and support,"
Lin is making it clear that just because he leads a digital prayer group does not mean that he has a perfect prayer life.
