God and maybe a British Muslim wanted Roger Federer to win

IT turned out that praying to win Wimbledon was a waste of time. You will recall that the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu (“Jesus wants me for a Sun reader”), told readers of his Sun column:

Loving God we are so filled with hope by the Wimbledon final today! Guide Andy Murray in the choices that come to him with every ball. Make us all the best that we can be, by your Holy Spirit, through Jesus Christ, to the glory of God our Father. Amen.

Just as soon as the tabloids can find a British Muslim who prayed for Roger, the Daily Mail will let us know.
