TBR — Houston, TX – Sept 18, 2018 — Over the weekend, Grammy, Stellar and Dove Award winning Gospel superstar Kirk Franklin, posted a passionate heart felt post on his Instagram Page about reuniting with his father.

He wrote, “Two days ago, I received an anonymous call that my biological father, who I never knew, has 3-6 months to live. I’ve lived my entire life hating this man. He and my biological mother gave me up for adoption, and it left me never feeling good enough….to this very day.” I took my hate for him and used it as fuel to be the best father I could be for my own. But what I did wrong is, I never took that fuel, and turned it into forgiveness….and that is wrong. Wrong for him, me, and the God I proclaim to represent. How can I preach what I don’t practice? So I flew to Houston yesterday to do that. It’s painful, it’s a process, but how disappointed I would be in myself for this man to leave this earth without being forgiven. He deserves to receive what God gives me everyday. Pray for him, and for me. God this is hard…I weep as I write,” stated the 48-year-old as he ended this now viral post.

May we keep the entire Franklin family uplifted in prayer.
