Joel Osteen and Murray -- Joined in Prayer

5/9/2010 4:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray was a guest at Joel Osteen's church in Houston, TX this morning -- and we're told the two shared a prayer together.

Sources at the Lakewood Church tell TMZ Murray met with Joel and his wife Victoria before Osteen in between the 8:30 and 11:00 AM sermons. We're told they met in a private room for about 10 minutes. Joel's brother Paul was also there, as was Murray's attorney, Ed Chernoff, and friend Jeffrey.

Our source said it was very apparent Murray was "a man of faith."

Osteen has acknowledged that Murray is going through a "hard time" -- which is one of the reasons he was invited to the service.

Poor Dr. Murray is going through a 'hard time' - boo hoo!!
Maybe this Joel guy would have done better inviting Michael's children to his church and praying with them - they're the real ones going through a 'hard time'

No. Just no. I did respond to you for the sake of my own interest in psychology. But I am capable of doing it without being pissed off. Good luck.

There are a lot of people going through a "hard time" with the down economy.
WHY is Conrad Murray's "hard time" any worse than what another person may be going through? What makes overdosing Michael Jackson so "special" to Joel
and Victoria Osteen? I just don't get the connection. Really, I don't!
Help me understand TMJ fans!

You people that are writing those horrible comments should really think about what you are saying first of all mj kids are innocent in all this and they shouldn't be mention in a bad way. And they are his kids no matter what you think it. And the man is dead let him rest in peace whether you think he is innocent or guilty you shouldn't judge. Let the man rest in peace. Let his kids remember him for the good times not all the junk that you people are saying. And if you hate mj so bad don't come here and read what is being posted and no matter what no one should die the way he did. thank you very much

Michael Jackson's Kids To End Up In Care?

Prince, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, seven, are currently living with their grandmother, 79-year-old Katherine Jackson.

Katherine also helps care for five other grandchildren at her LA home.

But authorities told her to move them and their mum Alejandra Oaziaza out after complaints that one of her brood had been seen brandishing a 300,000- volt stun gun and another had slapped his brother in the face.

But Alejandra and her family are still living at the Jackson family compound and there are fears all the children may now be taken away by Child Services, according to Britain’s News of The World newspaper.

“These are really tense and frightening times. With eight kids in one place it’s a burden for Katherine,” a source said.

“Officers asked for the numbers to be reduced, but nothing has happened. It’s just a few days before they check back, and they have enough grounds to take all the youngsters into care.

“It’s a nightmare and we are terrified of the next step.”

Hi LB.
First and last all you need in order to enable you to "get the connection" (re Osteen/Murray) is to just understand (not just know) the basic teachings of "God/Jesus" (I'm sure you're more than familiar with them).
So now just listen to them...
with your heart.
Plain and simple.
No hidden agendas.


"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn,
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart,
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

Gospel of St. Matthew 5:3-10

"The Ten Commandments, given to Moses on Mount Sinai in the Old Testament Book of Exodus, relates a series of "Thou shalt nots," evils one must avoid in daily life on earth.

In contrast, the message of Jesus was one of humility, charity, and brotherly love. He taught transformation of the inner person. Jesus presents the Beatitudes in a positive sense, virtues in life which will ultimately lead to reward. Love becomes the motivation for the Christian. All of the Beatitudes have an eschatological meaning, that is, they promise us salvation - not in this world, but in the next. The Beatitudes initiate one of the main themes of Matthew's Gospel, that the Kingdom so long awaited in the Old Testament is not of this world, but of the next, the Kingdom of Heaven.

While the Beatitudes of Jesus provide a way of life that promises salvation, they also provide peace in the midst of our trials and tribulations on this earth."

Joel Osteen is so predictable.. Did he stump his right foot forward again and raise is fist up high against Heaven? The level of contempt of this person… It’s like everything and anything that is bad he wants assigned for someone else.. But never him
