Roma Downey talks ‘Anwsered Prayers’ show on ‘real life miracles’

Roma Downey was promoting the new six-part series Answered Prayers, which features real-life stories of people in potentially life-threatening situations who experienced divine intervention, and confessed that she’s “thankful” and “humbled” by fans’ support for the show.

“We are humbled by the support of so many national prayer leaders, and thankful for how this show is inspiring so many to pray again,” said Downey.

Downey is the host of the show, incorporating actual footage, reenactments and interviews to convey the message of God’s power and answer to prayer.

“I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to make this. People of faith will be drawn to this. It’s a breath of fresh air,” she says to The Christian Post.

“We’re so grateful to all those families that trusted us to tell their stories. … What we see woven through all of these stories is that there’s a moment when they call out to God and they’ve said, ‘God please help me’ or ‘help this family.’ And we see through these beautiful reenactments how God has worked in their lives,” Downey said recently on TBN’s popular Christian talk show “Praise the Lord.”

President and CEO of the National Religious Broadcasters Jerry A. Johnson adds, “Roma Downey has put together some amazing stories to remind us to trust the Lord and call out to Him in urgent need. Watch this series to be inspired and reminded of God’s love and care for you.”

Downey says she knows she’s created something very special. “It’s a privilege to be able to bring this kind of project to television.”

Answered Prayers airs at 8 p.m. ET Sundays on the TLC network.
