Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao poses with his family while showing his WBO championship belt to the media, after defeating Timothy Bradley, upon his arrival at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, Philippines, April 14, 2016.

Manny Pacquiao is more than a Filipino senator and world renowned professional boxer; he is a father of five who is getting personal about the prayers he says for his children.

“Lord, my wife and I pray that our son will grow up to love the Word of God and obey your commandments,” Pacquiao captioned an Instagram photograph of his 2-year-old son Israel reading the Bible.

When Pacquiao’s son was born in 2014, the boxer was vocal about glorifying God for his newest addition.

“Israel is born to God be all the Glory Hallelujah! As Pacquiao’s family we will serve the Lord,” he previously said.

Pacquiao has made it clear that the country which his son was named after held significance for him. The 37-year-old Filipino world champion boxer and politician toured Israel for the fourth time last year with his wife, Jinkee Pacquiao.
