Yes, what bizarre times we’re living in, NewsBusters readers. One new example arose during Monday morning’s MSNBC Live when 11:00 a.m. Eastern host Craig Melvin ended a segment with Dallas, Texas-area pastor Bishop T.D. Jakes by having him lead viewers in prayer to “our Father and our God” and Jesus Christ for peace and safety amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Yes, Jakes mentions have cropped up a few times on NewsBusters over the years. And yes, he has plenty of critics who say he’s a preacher of the prosperity gospel and believer in modalism (which denies the existence of three distinct individuals/beings in the Trinity --- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit --- but rather that they're one and the same).

But in times like these, seeing prayer on a liberal cable network was a sight to see as people of all faiths rally together to provide hope for so many of us living in fear.
