Bishop T.D. Jakes recently responded to the Eddie Long’s settlement in his sexual misconduct case, saying that Christians should still pray for Long’s church because they have no authority to say anything else.

When the allegations against Long became public, Jakes publicly addressed the case before his own congregation, The Potter’s House in Dallas, saying, “Christians should just pray.”

He also told his flock during the Sunday service, “When all this is over, one thing is for sure – somebody, if not everybody in it, is going to need the blood [of Jesus Christ].”

Speaking in a recent interview with The Christian Post, Jakes reiterated that “we should still pray” for New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

“We have no other authority but to pray,” said the prominent megachurch pastor before he took the stage at McDonald’s Gospelfest event Saturday in Newark, N.J.
