Fox News host leads prayer on air – causes a major debate online

Since news networks typically aim to keep things secular for their viewers, you never actually expect to see them showing their anchors lead prayer on TV. But host of Fox News Pete Hegseth had different ideas.

On Sunday, Fox News anchor Pete Hegseth urged viewers and co-hosts of “Fox & Friends” to bow their heads in prayer. In a section supported by a Bible app, the host did just that.

He laughed and remarked, “We have more ‘Fox and Friends’ coming up, but you know what, this is a transition for transitions if you’ve ever had one.”

Then Rachel Campos-Duffy, co-host of Weekend, chimed in, “So ‘Fox and Friends.'”

Hegseth agreed, saying, “This is very ‘Fox and Friends,’ so get your heart ready.”

Hegseth said, “Today is the fifth Sunday of Lent. As part of our prayer series, we’re reciting prayers from the Hallow app. “Let’s do it this morning, close your eyes, and bow your head if you would. We all need it.”

Then he started reading the prayer from the Hallow app while Will Cain and Campos-Duffy, his co-hosts, bowed respectfully.

Hegseth recited, “Jesus, today we begin the holy period of passion tide.” “Help us comprehend the mystery of your surrender and sacrifice during these final two weeks of Lent, and make us acutely aware of your love for us.” We beg you to reveal yourself to us and enable us to experience the grace of your presence.

Thank you again to Hallow for this partnership during Lent, Hegseth said, concluding by thanking Christ for the “selfless love you showed on the cross.”

Campos-Duffy said, “Amen.”

The Huffington Post reports that Fox News featured a portion of the story about the Hallow app on Ash Wednesday. Actor Mark Wahlberg received an invitation to attend as part of the sponsorship.


Fox News hosts have already discussed their beliefs on the program. In a previous broadcast, host Kayleigh McEnany expressed her belief that Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson is being led by God and that everything will work itself out.



On that same Johnson program, co-host Ainsley Earhardt urged everyone to pray for him as our speaker. “God’s guidance is desperately needed right now for our nation.”

Despite the fact that everyone in America is free to practice their faith, it appears that this on-air prayer may have upset some people. “These people don’t praise God the rest of the time,” someone said. The idea that they do is a political ploy. Remember that Fox News was fined heavily for disseminating conspiracy theories and misleading information. Phony at its most brilliant!


“About as religious as a rock,” said another. Another irate viewer said, “It’s absurd that these people are praying.” Every day, they lie out loud while sitting there. It seems like you never hear the whole story. Give me a break, please.

Numerous individuals believed the prayer was a fantastic idea, however it appears that other folks were not persuaded by it and thought it was fake!
