McPherson said his wife’s complications are serious and that he cannot be by her side for COVID-19-related reasons.
The pastor posted an emotional video asking his Instagram followers to pray for his ailing wife. “How you doing family,” McPherson gingerly started, “I have a special request from you…my wife is in the hospital.” Holding back tears, he continued, “From complications from COVID and I just want you to pray for her. I’ve been in ministry for a long time and I’ve seen so many people get help, and I just want to ask you to pray for my wife Debbie that God would heal and bring her home.”
“God knows all the detail about her health,” McPherson emotionally said. “I just pray that he will bring her home and she’ll be able to breathe on her own.” He wrote this note to his followers that went along with his video:
Hey family, I need to ask a big favor. I need prayer for my wife Debbie. She’s in the hospital due to COVID complications. Needless to say this is serious. What’s worse is that I can’t be with her. My heart is broken. Please pray for God to heal her breathing and her oxygen levels to normalize and all of her other symptoms to be cleared. God knows what all that means. If you are a hospital worker, thank you for what you do and if you know she’s in your hospital, please take good care of my wife. I believe that prayers work family. James 5:16 says “The prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. Lord Please heal my wife, Your daughter Debbie McPherson. Please bring her home to me. Please fill her room n heart with your peace. I declare Your powerful healing on her life. Lord, you healed the blind, mute, deaf, crippled and even raised the dead. Please heal Debbie. I love my wife!
