Gary Valenciano makes his debut on Kumu via his official account @garyvalenciano on Nov. 6 (Saturday) at 8:45 p.m. as he partners with the popular Filipino community streaming platform in line with his ongoing advocacy to promote prayer as the very first Asian ambassador of the US-based Pray.com mobile app and website.
Pray.com is the world's leading app for daily prayer and Bible-based audio content as it was launched in 2017 with a mission to grow faith and cultivate a community. Today, Pray.com now reaches more than 10 million people globally through its mobile app and website. It is the simplest way to incorporate prayer into one’s daily life. Pray.com provides encouragement and inspiration through daily prayers, pastor podcasts, and Bedtime Bible Stories. In this new venture, Valenciano becomes the voice behind bible stories of Joseph as well as meditation prayers that will inspire his millions of fans.
Titled Let’s Pray With Gary V: Music And Live Meditation, Gary V’s maiden live stream on Kumu is jam-packed with inspirational and uplifting content that is greatly needed especially during these times when a lot of people need to develop a habit of prayer and connecting with God on daily basis.
Prayer forms a vital part of Valenciano’s day. Whether he is working from home or at the ABS-CBN studios for his weekly ASAP Natin ‘To performances, an app like Pray.com on his mobile devices helps him seamlessly make time for quiet moments with God no matter how busy his schedule gets.
Prayer has been Valenciano’s sanctuary and refuge, especially during this heartbreaking season of the pandemic where no one has been spared from challenges, grief, pain, and loss. It is no secret that his life has been saddled by many medical trials having been a Type 1 diabetic for 42 years and surviving a cardiac bypass and kidney cancer, but through it all, he has emerged a victorious living miracle.
“I want to encourage everyone – no matter what you are going through – take a moment, stop and pray. Prayer doesn’t have to be complicated. Start a conversation with God who loves you, God who is everywhere, God who knows you and hears your every cry. The Word promises – we can approach His throne of grace and, always, we will find help in our time of need; He who has promised is so much more than able,” Valenciano adds.
On the Kumu live stream, Gary V will be accompanied by his co-host RJ Dela Fuente and his very special guests namely Ogie and Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Paolo and Gab Valenciano, Pastor James Aiton of Favor Church, Edward Barber, May May Entrata, Hannah Pangilinan, Gab Pangilinan, Julianne Tarroja, and Jona.
Gary V and his guests will each talk about their prayer life and journey while Mr. Pure Energy performs live a sampling of his most loved inspirational songs as well as some special surprises.
With its official hashtag #PrayWithGaryV, the live stream will also have a special two customized virtual gifts for the event’s beneficiary, Shining Light Foundation, Inc.
