Fox News Host Leads Prayer on Air

Seeing news anchors lead prayer on air is not something you come across every day. It’s quite uncommon for news channels to mix religion with their programming. However, Fox News host Pete Hegseth decided to do something different.

In a segment sponsored by a Bible app, Hegseth asked his co-hosts and viewers of “Fox & Friends” to join him in prayer. Poking fun at the situation, he said, “We have more ‘Fox and Friends’ coming up, but you know what, this is a transition for transitions if you’ve ever had one.”

Hegseth went on to explain that it was the 5th Sunday of Lent and their prayer series would continue with a reading from the Hallow app. He invited everyone to close their eyes and bow their heads in respect as he read the prayer on-screen.

The prayer focused on understanding the mystery of Jesus’ sacrifice and surrender, and asking for His presence and grace. Hegseth thanked Christ for His selfless love before concluding the prayer. Co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy added an “Amen” to the prayer.

This is not the first time a Fox News host has expressed their faith on-air. Host Kayleigh McEnany once mentioned that House Speaker Mike Johnson believes God is leading the way. Co-host Ainsley Earhardt also encouraged viewers to pray for Speaker Johnson, emphasizing the need for guidance from God.

While some viewers were moved and appreciated the prayer, others were skeptical and saw it as a political stunt or insincere. However, many supported the initiative and applauded the hosts for their faith.
