Gorgeous supermodel Gisele Bundchen asked friends and family to pray for her husband Tom Brady to win this Sunday's Super Bowl, according to an email obtained by the New York Post.

Bundchen, who married Brady in 2009, encouraged the family's friends to pray for her famous quarterback husband ahead of the Super Bowl on Sunday.

My sweet friends and family, the e-mail began. This sunday will be a really important day in my husband's life. He and his team worked so hard to get to this point and now they need us more than ever to send them positive energy so they can fulfill their dream of winning this super bowl . . .

So I kindly ask all of you to join me on this positive chain and pray for him, so he can feel confident, healthy and strong. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this sunday.

Thank you for your love and support. Love, G :)

When reached by the Post, Bundchen said she was surprised that you received this email and noted that it was a private note only sent to close friends and family.

The Post splashed the email on its front page with the headline, Not a Prayer!

The highly sensationalized front page cover is yet another example of the New York media looking for any possible Tom Brady angle they can get their hands on before the Super Bowl on Feb. 5th. Earlier in the week, the collective group went wild when Brady gently told Patriots fans that he hoped to win the Super Bowl.

We have the greatest fans in America, Brady told fans at a Super Bowl rally. You guys have proved that year in and year out with your support. I wish I could take all you guys to Indy with us. We're going down there, and we're going down there for one reason. We're going to give it our best and hopefully we have a lot more people at our party next weekend.

Some took that as a proclamation by Brady that the Patriots would win the Super Bowl, but many have dismissed it as an innocent comment to a group of diehard fans.

The Patriots take on the Giants at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis in a rematch of the 2008 Super Bowl, which the Giants won 17-14. Don't expect the Super Bowl's conclusion to stop New York's obsession with Brady anytime soon, though.
