NBA Player Lamar Odom Gets Saved; Says He is Thankful to Jesus for Keeping Him Alive

Four years ago, professional basketball player Lamar Odom was basically a dead man. A horrific drug overdose in October 2015 left the athlete lying on a hospital bed in a deep coma and on life support.

A debilitating cocaine addiction ravaged his body and he suffered 12 strokes and six heart attacks while in the coma.

This past Sunday, Odom walked into an Atlanta church a healthy man and gave his life to Christ.

“Nowadays I’m doing the best I can in walking with the Lord. Thanks to Pastor Vernon @drravernon, I got saved at @thewordchurch this weekend. I had to show Jesus my appreciation for keeping me alive!” Odom wrote on Instagram on Tuesday.

His girlfriend, Sabrina Parr, is pictured next to Odom as he lifts his hands thanking God before the church congregation.

Parr commented under his post: “Nothing better than a man of God! Keeping pushing through life baby!! God willing I’ll be right here by your side!!!!”
