Amidst the global calamity affecting billions of people due to coronavirus, God’s people never stop displaying the works of God to the world. In fact, glorious unexpected events keep happening even in the middle of this pandemic. Italian atheist doctors turning to God, the church worshiping through windows and drive-in, and the birthing of worldwide prayer and fasting for nations. Followers of Jesus cannot help but step up and shine. And another inspiring story is added to the list as an MSNBC host suddenly asked Pastor T.D. Jakes to pray live on National Television for the first time.
Asking To Pray For The First Time On-Air
The host Craig Melvin interviewed the megachurch pastor Bishop T.D. Jakes on Monday during “MSNBC Live.” With a breaking news headline “Faith Groups Stepping Up In Virus Fight,” both discussed the COVID19 crisis.
When unexpectedly he said, “For folks who aren’t able to get to church yesterday, I’ve never actually done this on the air.” Then he told the The Potter’s House Church Pastor, “Can you lead us in prayer for 30 seconds?”
The 30-Second Powerful Prayer
Right then Pastor T.D. Jakes responded to the fascinating question without hesitation. He proceeded with a short prayer while live on broadcast.
“Our Father and our God, we bow our heads to you in humility, understanding that we are not competent in and of ourselves to handle this kind of global calamity,” he prayed. “We look to You, Lord, to be the source, the strength, the help, the light that we need, strengthen our first responders, strengthen even our broadcast people, strengthen all of us whose lives have been devastated and disrupted and give us the peace that passes all understanding. In Christ’s name we pray, Amen.”
What Craig did on air shocked the viewers. But nonetheless, this is remarkable evidence that God is slowly drawing the hearts of the people towards Him.
