Movie producer Tyler Perry took to the stage, at the Potter’s House in Dallas a day after MegaFest. He talked about how God spoke to him to give $1 million to T.D. Jakes‘ new youth ministry, preached, spoke in tongues, and then laid hands on T.D. Jakes in prayer.
The Christian media mogul had previously written a check for $113,000 at Jakes’ popular “Woman Thou Art Loosed” service, but the giving didn’t stop there. “You see, I love to give. I’ve been a giver all my life,” Perry explained. “And when people have given to you and sown into you, and God has touched them and given you favor [you give back].”
He also added, “You see, they don’t understand it where I come from. They don’t understand it in Hollywood, but I’m gonna tell you something about the blood of Jesus.” He added
The wealthy CEO continued, “All of my life, my mother, she didn’t have much to give me. She didn’t have millions of dollars. She didn’t have some legacy, but she had Jesus, and she taught me about that God.”
Tyler did not only give, but took time to prophecy and pray for the renowned preacher.
“The book of Psalms says that He prepareth a table before me in the presence of my enemies,” quoting a popular passage in Psalm 23:5.
“So, in order for me to eat they have to be present. So, God bless you Bishop. I pray right now, that you will continue to do everything you’re doing. I pray His anointing will stay upon you,” Perry shouted, turning toward Jakes, who responded by walking in the Madea creator’s direction with his arms extended in the air.
“I pray the power of God all over you. I pray His favor,” Perry continued praying, laying hands on Jakes’ forehead in front of those who had gathered by the thousands. “I pray the blood of Jesus will come upon you right now. Keep you in His care. God, I thank You for your blessings!”
Once the entertainment executive removed his hand from the pastor, Jakes’ body convulsed as if someone had plugged him into a light socket. The renowned preacher was also captured, for quite some time afterward, rejoicing and clapping his hands.
It may be recalled that in a 2012 interview with Essence, Perry said, “People don’t know this but I went to seminary school, and was a minister in the church when I was about 18-20 years old, so that is very much ingrained in me.”
