Miracle Hour under fire
Charities have scrutinised an episode of the Miracle Hour show on Faith World TV after it made viewers believe that prayer could cure them of life-threatening diseases.
It comes after a diabetic caller was told he would be ‘set free’ from the disease if he put his hand on his leg and said ‘I cause diabetes to die in your body’.
The UK World Evangelical Trust (UKWET), which produces the show, is said to be reviewing its ‘new programmes’.
Crocodile seen in the Thames
