DENVER -- Can Tim Tebow's blessing inspire Colorado lawmakers? One state representative thinks so.
Democratic Rep. Sal Pace sent a letter Friday to the Denver Broncos quarterback inviting him to lead the House in the daily morning prayer before lawmakers start work. Pace said in the letter that Tebow is an excellent choice to "give Colorado's elected officials guidance as we take on the important task of leading Colorado."
"You have inspired Colorado. You have inspired America!" Pace wrote. "Throughout your career you have consistently proven the naysayers wrong."
The morning prayer at the Capitol's House and Senate is led every day by different people of all faiths.

"By leading the Denver Broncos into the playoffs, and giving us our first playoff victory in six years, you have given all of Colorado something to cheer about, in times that have been filled with all too often negative news," Pace said in the letter.
Pace said the House has several dates available for Tebow to choose from.
