Deion "Prime Time" Sanders, the NFL Hall-of-Famer, recently spoke about his plan to utilize his God-given gifts.

Sanders, 47, was on-hand for a celebrity flag football game ahead of the upcoming Super Bowl XLIX, where he glorified God for keeping him busy with analyst and interviewing duties on NFL Network and CBS Sports.

"God has been good," Sanders told NBC Charlotte's Eugene Robinson recently. "I'm just trying to exercise all of my gifts."

While Sanders has played in the celebrity football game for years, he also spoke about the importance of working with young football players which he works with in Dallas.

"To me, these young players playing today are kids," Sanders told NBC. "I'm just trying to lead them in the right direction."

Recently, there have been reports that Sanders' charter school, Prime Prep Academy, is in danger of closing. The school has been plagued with financial trouble, and co-founder Sanders was forced to turn it over to the control of the Texas government.

Now, The Dallas Morning News has reported that it is merely paperwork that stands in the way of the school's doors being closed for good.

"TEA staff is drawing up an order to formalize the revocation of the school's charter and expects to present it to the judge for a signature as soon as this afternoon," Dallas Morning News reported. "It's not certain when the judge will sign that order, but all that's left is paperwork."

Sanders is known for posting his spiritual insight on Twitter, and did not shy away from doing that shortly after news broke that his charter could be revoked.

"You have No idea what God is capable of doing until you fully trust him and let God be God. God can't fail! #TRUTH,"Sanders tweeted.
