But there could be an actual divine presence at Wembley later this month when the fourth-tier side face Swansea.
Enter the Dalai Lama.
The Tibetan spiritual leader has written to the club via a representative to wish them "every success in the big match".
“His holiness,” the letter said, also hailed their "tremendous achievement" in advancing so far.
The 14th Dalai Lama first came into contact with Bradford last June at a conference when he was presented with a club shirt, personalised with the number 14.
The gift was organised by Friends of Bradford City, who had been on the search for a high-profile supporter and saw significance in the similarities between the official Bradford colours the traditional robes donned by Tibetan monks.
The Dalai Lama himself was also reportedly taken by his claret and amber souvenir, so much so that the 82-year-old has followed the club’s progress.
"He remembers his time in Yorkshire with great affection and wishes you every success in the big match," the letter said.
Friends of Bradford City representative, Mark Neal, said they plan to send scarves and programmes to the Dalai Lama.
Bradford are the first team from League Two to reach a League Cup final in more than 50 years after they saw off top-flight teams Arsenal, Aston Villa and Wigan.
