  1. I had Covid 19 in 2020 and I have been in pain every day of my life. I’m asking you to pray for me In the name of Jesus Christ. My husband is Military so when we got back to Virginia our pastor had passed away. I watch the potters house 3days a week including Sunday. And because I believe in Jesus Christ I know I will be healed. It is hard living with the pain every day with no relief. My name is Tamico Burton. Thank you and may God always use you. BLESS you and your family.

  3. God bless you precious Woman of God. I was researching today after listening Bishop T. D Jakes the Holy Spirit was speaking to me about the Anointing on your Life, very gifted don’t have to tell you anything. As the Lord was speaking to I felt led to write a few things down, with all that’s going on all around the world it truly grieves my spirit at times with our children, the drugs, marriages but come to realize the word of God. There’s nothing New Under The Sun, Praise God we’ve already experienced this before and we must just go through to get to the Revelational Mysteries that God has already planned for our lives. For Greater Is He That’s In Us thank he that’s in this world.

  4. Apostle Idalmis Garcia

    I have followed BISHOP TD JAKE’S ministry since the year 1999 when I was going through a terrible time in my ministry and sitting in the middle of a bed in West Palm Beach, Florida, the night before a Women’s Conference that I was supposed to preach, I turn the TV on (the then PTL) to hear the Word of God, Bishop came on and said: “This is for you ISABEL, (which is my middle name) described what I was going through and proceeded to give me five steps to get out of the terrible place I was in. I did exactly that, and God has been glorified.

    I sent the testimony by mail and never got a reply, however, I have followed the ministry for all of these years wishing that someday I could visit the Potters House”.

    I am now 71 years old and travel the world with my ministry as an apostle under Dr. Rony Chaves from Costa Rica since the year 2000, but don’t lose hope to meet Bishop Jakes and his wife Pastor Serita Jakes. God bless them both and may God bless their ministry.

  5. Excellent preaching on the words from the greatest Book known to human ‘THE HOLY BIBLE”. Yes, Bishop TD Jones and his daughter are both delivering God’s messages on the Commandments and I am really listening because I am a believer.

    Lots of blessings to the Family and I am extremely proud of his Pastor Daughter and his wife as they are building a great family unity. Finally, to Bishop TD Jakes please note that your preaching on Naomi touches me and concealed my faith because I am like Naomi.
