Number 3:  Jakes Asked to Pray on MSNBC

Bishop T.D. Jakes was asked to lead the nation in prayer by MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin.

"Our father and our God, we bow our heads to You in humility and understanding that we are not competent in and of ourselves to handle this kind of global calamity. We look to You Lord to be the strength, help, and light that we need. Strengthen our first responders, strengthen our broadcast people and all of us whose lives have been devastated and disrupted and give us the peace that passes all understanding, in Christ name we pray, Amen."

On social media, Jakes wrote, "It isn't every day that you're asked to pray for the nation on MSNBC! I pray that a silver lining could come from this pandemic. It's causing us to understand that we are a global family!"
