“You know what my prayer is? My prayer is, ‘Use me.’ I used to pray that prayer everyday … When you pray that prayer you will be met with the answer,” Oprah told Connick, as reported by RelevantMagazine.com.
Toward the end of the interview, Oprah leads a rendition of the Christian hymn “I Surrender All.”
“All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
I will ever love and trust Him
In His presence daily live,” say the song’s lyrics.
“I surrender all
I surrender all
All to Thee my blessed Saviour
I surrender all,” continues the chorus.
Oprah also commented on the current cultural and political climate, and said that in these times of divisiveness and tension, our true spiritual roots and true love need to show. “Love shows up when it has to face hate,” she said.
