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.

How come nobody ever questions (zones in on) the motives of those 2 infamous Jackson mouthpieces for years....Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton....& the Jackson/Sharpton/Jackson clan connection....like what is being said of the Joel Osteen/Murray relationship?
Oh...I forgot....it's the Jacksons.

MJ is the "king of drug addicts". He chose DRUGS over his kids, family, friends and fans. He shall always be remembered as freaky pervert, that preyed on young boys. Dr. Murray will probably just get community service. It looks good that Joel Osteen is on his side.

Mrs. Jackson and Michael Children are going through a hard time, why not have prayer for them?



I feel so much for Michael's children, losing their only parent, living with family members who you did not see often, not having someone to give you the love like your parent did, very rough.

I have never met this pastor. When my brother was very, very ill in Houston, I called Mr. Osteen. He took time out from all of his thousands of flock and spoke and prayed with my brother. I think the world of him. The large numbers don't seem to have changed Mr. Osteen.

LOL Tellit it's about time we found something you feel strongly about.



So lets see for us looking up to MJ we are wacko sicko's but you can adore Joel Osteen and expect all of us to agree with your opinion?



Every single post I have seen from you is dripping with hate and sarcasim towards both MJ and the fans. Perhaps instead of just watching your hero Joel maybe you should open your mind a little to his sermons and learn live and let live? I am sure you did not learn all the hate you harbour from him nor did you learn it from MJ's fans.



You see Tellit it's easy to push someones buttons but most of us adults learn at a young age if you can't take it don't dish it out.



I am not a bible thumper and don't follow it much so just like you being unfamilar with MJ let me formulate an opinion based on my limited knowledge just like you do. Is it not true that a lot of preachers have touched little boys??? Maybe I should google Joel find something and blow it out of proportion?



I really hope you aren't the type to call people stupid in real life for having opinions that don't agree with yours. If you are please for everyones sake do not reproduce.



Thanks and Happy Mothers Day.

To some of you people who post some very cold comments on here, you really need help. No matter how much you don't beleive in God or any higher powers, your conscience should just tell you, what to and what not to say/do. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion i know, but to go as far as say "rot in pieces" (r.i.p), to somebody who is dead, just doesn't seem right. I've seen some ignorant comments before in my life, but this is the worst i've ever come across. No matter how much you might've hated somebody, let alone somebody you knew from a distance, i think whatever judgement, is left for whoever judges, to me it's God. And if you don't beleive in any higher powers, then i think, you should just let that person go, it'll be the end of him/her. Why post such hateful comments on somebody you didn't even know. Moreover the person is dead.



You surely need help.........it just tells you a lot about your yourself. I really feel sorry for all people like that.

WOW,....I've never called MJfans wacko sickos...just MJfanatic fans ....morons, idiots.
You must have me confused with Tell it...he's the MJhater...not me.
And I don't have a problem with other's opinions either.
I just state my opinion...no intentions or even desire of changing anyone elses opinion.
You could have left out the "touching" business also. I've NEVER said that Michael Jackson molested little boys. NEVER....because I never have believed that about him.
Go rag on somebody who deserves being ragged on.
