Chance the Rapper tweeted recently that he is trusting God, though his aunt is in “dire need” of a kidney transplant but has been waitlisted “for years.”
The recording artist, whose real name is Chancellor Johnathan Bennett, tweeted May 23 his family “believes in the power of prayer and we give the problem to God.”
This is not the first time Chance has spoken about his faith. In December of last year, he announced via social media he was going on sabbatical to study the Bible.
The rapper’s decision to study Scripture, something he admitted he was “very unfamiliar with,” came after the birth of his nephew Charlie Matthew.
“I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ, but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my Bible,” he wrote on Instagram at the time. “We all quote Scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like, but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really just read and KNOW his Word?”
“I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it” Chance added. “So I’m off to read and learn because the next generation of Bennett is here.”
