Anchor of MSNBC Craig Melvin focuses on religion unlike the usual politics where he asked Bishop T.D Jakes to pray right on spot over Coronavirus pandemic.
This is not the usual practice of the anchor, he said; “I’ve never actually done this on air,” “Can you lead us in prayer?” he asked the senior pastor of The Potter’s House Church during a remote interview with him.
Then they both bowed on live television for the prayer as he prayed; “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,” Jakes 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.”
Melvin also replied with “amen” before appreciating Bishop Jakes for coming on the network.
He tweeted that “In times like these, we need prayer.”
Since then, the tweet generated over 3,000 likes with many positive feedback. One of the tweets reads “Craig, Thank you for praying on TV,” one person wrote. “It may be a bold move in today’s world, but it shows to me the silver lining behind this pandemic. Powerful!”
