Singer Justin Bieber shares his faith with 122 million followers on Instagram on how the power of guided prayers can offer peace, comfort during life’s storms.
“Here’s a guided prayer. When you have a quiet moment get into a comfortable position and listen. They have really been helping me and thought I would share,” he writes on the timeline in September.
Recently, the 25-year-old posted additional reassurances of a new guided prayer to watch. Fans liked the message 429,350 times as of Dec. 9.
The prayers are a few minutes long and are led by Bieber and celebrity pastor Judah Smith. “Justin Bieber has taught me far more than I could ever teach him about what it means to grow and walk in humility and be someone who really wants to follow Jesus.”
Bieber also discusses Romans 8:28. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”
Bieber is becoming more open regarding his Christian faith — no easy task in Hollywood. He led worship service and gave a testimony at Churchome, Beverly Hills in August.
Bieber, who attended Catch the Fire meetings as a kid, says God has been faithful. “God is pulling me through a hard season. Having trust in Jesus at your worst times is the absolute hardest. But He is faithful to complete what we started.”
He continues by saying that the Bible counts it all joy “when you face trials of various kinds. Sounds insane considering when u face trials u feel terrible. But if we are grateful and worship God for what we do have in that season there is so much power in that… whatever pain you are going through just keep telling yourself THIS WON’T LAST! Love you guys — we in this together.”
The songbird explains in a 2015 Complex interview that he’s not religious, per se. But personally loves Jesus — his salvation and believes he shouldn’t ostracized for having those beliefs.
Everybody should be able to share what they’re doing.
“I actually feel better and more free now that I know what I can do and what I can’t do. My voice, I’m not gonna let it not be heard anymore. I’m gonna use my voice for a reason.”
Today, JB is giving testimony and shouting praises to the Lord and making his voice heard above the fray of culture.
In Mark 11:22-24 Jesus answered them. “Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
