I did a post not too long ago wondering the same thing this viewer did (located here), the one who wrote to a Christian TV asking why the hosts, when they pray for the audience, hardly ever pray for people to be healed of broken hearts, anxiety, or depression?
Why is it, that on this Christian show, almost every time they pray for viewers, the prayers are almost always about physical sickness, and occasionally, financial matters?
I seldom hear these guys praying for relationship problems, job problems, or people wanting healing of mental health problems.
You can see / read the letter yourself in the video below. The “why do you never pray for non-physical illness issues” question is the second one.
Letter 1 – Rick wants to know if he can get his soul back.
Letter 2 – A Viewer asks, ‘Why are all the prayers on your show about physical healing.’
