Popular gospel film editor and music producer, Joshua Mike-Bamiloye a.k.a Jaymikee has called the attention of Christian faithful to the trending act gaining ground among Christians lately.
It is no longer a new practice that some Christians now record their ‘moments with God’ with the intention of sharing on social media for their followers to see. These moments with God include their prayer, worship and praise session.
According to jay mike, any Christian doing such is obviously channeling his/her praises, worship and prayers meant for God to his followers.
In his words;
“Fun fact, if you set up your phone and record yourself praying, to be posted on social media, you’re praying to the almighty viewers.
And if you point your camera to yourself in the middle of a praise and worship session, your praises go to your almighty followers.”
As expected, some of his followers countered his tweet as many to them noted that the intention of sharing prayer, worship or praise session online matters more.

Akomolafe Ibukun: I wouldn’t expect this from someone in the Christian media space, cause yeah, it’s content they are creating in those moments to share with others, but those contents do a lot of good to the body of Christ for you of all people to turn it into a “fun fact” for banter on twitter.
Modupe Global: The internet, sir, is highly corrupted with ungodly contents. Some believers who indulge in promoting THE KINGDOM doing it with a clean heart to saturate the web with christian contents. We can’t say that MZFM is posting videos on social media to the almighty followers
Pii: You may not be totally wrong but at the same time. You may not be comfortable with it, most people record and post to encourage other people. This is our Father’s business and every business needs to be properly propagated. I am excited when I see heavy Kingdom contents…
Akinwumi Pedro: A lot of people these days go to church to take pics and create content. What motivates them is the pictures they’d take after service. I’m not saying dis is wrong, but know dat God sees your heart and d motive behind coming to church. If purpose is not known abuse is inevitable
Esther: I was pondering on this today especially the ones who video themselves while praying to post on social media…I guess they don’t know that they are practicing Matt 6:5. Praying like the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray… that they may be seen by others. God help us
John Bethel: Thank God humans are not God… If this is true then the church broadcasting live while the service is going on is also to the almighty viewers right or going live when praying is also to the almighty viewers right…
Fracis Olusesi: There’s always a balance to this and most importantly it depends on the person’s heart. I can record my self worshipping and my heart is still in the right place. My reason for recording is to share that experience with the world,same goes for live recordings and services.
Christo: May be we don’t need cameras in church
Mr Valour: What about the prayers said in Christian movies, do they serve the same purpose? Given some Christian creatives claim they record themselves praying to pass across a message or “promote” prayer
Collins: Some will come to the media unit to ask for a picture while they were in the spirit or under the anointing.
Josiah Oluwatomisin: One gospel singer told his followers to record themselves in the spirit while singing his song Whyy?? To promote his song??
Friday Oduma: Bitter Truth to Christians who publicise their private prayers and worship time on social media. Matthew 6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Iseoluwa Asikhia: Matthew 6:5-15 ERV “When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites. They love to stand in the synagogues and on the street corners and pray loudly. They want people to see them. The truth is, that’s all the reward they will get.
Momo: I’ve never understood this concept portrayed by our Christian brothers and sisters. The same way I don’t understand the people who post themselves crying on social media. You set up your camera to cry for us? I don’t know. Don’t get it.
Jesus the Little Lamb: Not true, I follow Christian influencers and I tell you, their videos remind me to go and pray or study my Bible. Scrolling through social media all day and not one has a content with praying or studying the Bible, might make me forget to pray, these influencers are my
Joy Otokhine: This table you have stared shaking already . You will soon hear “Off your mic !”. To be honest, no matter the explaining the body of Christ comes up with for this behaviour, Matthew 6:5-15 comes to mind. SELAH
