Fox News Host Pete Hegseth Lead Prayer On Live Television, And It Seems To Have Caused A Heated Debate Online

Fox News host Pete Hegseth recently led a prayer on live television during a segment of “Fox & Friends,” sparking a heated online debate. The prayer, part of a series sponsored by the Bible app Hallow, took place on the fifth Sunday of Lent. Hegseth, alongside co-hosts Rachel Campos-Duffy and Will Cain, invited viewers to join in a prayer focused on the themes of sacrifice and love associated with the period of Lent.

Hegseth read, “Jesus, today we begin the holy period of passion tide. In these last 2 weeks of Lent, help us understand the mystery of your sacrifice and surrender, make us keenly aware of your love for us.”

The decision to incorporate prayer into the news segment has divided viewers, with some appreciating the reflection on faith, while others criticized it as insincere or a political maneuver. Critics argue that the prayer feels disconnected from the usual content of the news channel, which some accuse of spreading misinformation. This event follows other instances where Fox News hosts have openly discussed their faith, highlighting an ongoing blend of news and personal belief in some broadcasts.
