The San Antonio Spurs may be getting some help from above as they look to win their fifth NBA championship since 1999.

Teams want all of the support that they can get, so San Antonio should be thrilled when it sees a picture like this posted on Facebook during the 2014 NBA Finals. 

On Tuesday night, St. James the Apostle Catholic School posted the above picture of nuns wearing Spurs jerseys over their habits along with a prayer:


Heavenly Father, we ask your special blessings on the Spurs, Coach Pop, and all their coaches. May the Spurs always play and continue to be the Best they can be. May they led in integrity, respect, fortitude, courage, non-abusive and clean in their play. May they all, including their coaches, remain equal in spirit, even if there are tough and difficult moments in the game. Protect them from any kind of harm. May they always remember that they do well with God's help. May they always play their best and know they have the support of all their fans wether they win or lose. We ask the Blessed Mother to help them and in Jesus' name ask God's blessing WIN or LOSE. Amen

Pass this on!! Go Spurs Go!!!

In the Spurs' two victories in the series, Manu Ginobili (16 points and 11 assists in Game 1) and Kawhi Leonard (29 points in Game 3) have had big games. Notice which jerseys are being worn in the picture.

Good luck, Miami.
