Alex Trebek Credits Prayer for Recovery. NBC News Censors It.

Longtime Jeopardy host Alex Trebek is in the fight of his life against stage-four pancreatic cancer, a diagnosis that usually holds very little good news for those it afflicts. But while Trebek is not out of the woods yet, he has experienced what can only be deemed a miraculous recovery that has shocked his doctors, his fans, and the game-show legend himself. In an interview with People magazine this week, Trebek said there was only one explanation for his cancer having gone into “near remission”: Prayer.

“The doctors said that they hadn’t seen this kind of positive result in their memory. Some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 percent,” Trebek told the magazine. “It’s kind of mind-boggling. I’ve already gone from where I was to this. The doctors are so excited, just beside themselves with joy.

“I told the doctors, this has to be more than just chemo,” Trebek continued. “I’ve had a couple million people out there who expressed their good thoughts, their positive energy and their prayers. The doctors said it could very well be an important part of this.”

If you want to deny that the prayers of millions of Americans made the difference for Trebek’s prognosis, we won’t argue with you. If we know anything, it’s that God’s ways are mysterious and it is usually folly to try to make “sense” out of these things using human rationality. Perhaps God wanted to use Trebek’s miraculous recovery as a way to reach people with his Word. Perhaps Trebek just got “lucky.” We don’t know, and we’re not going to guess.

What we do know, though, is that he has every right to believe that all of those prayers helped him to reach this stage of healing. And he has certainly earned the right to spread that message.

But that’s apparently just too much for the people at NBC News, who went out of their way to censor any mention of “prayer” in their report on Trebek’s recovery. In their segment on Trebek, NBC Nightly News played several soundbites and clips from the People article. When it came to the section where Trebek credited prayer, the reporter slyly read it like this: “He tells People, “I’ve got a couple million people out there who have expressed good thoughts… I told the doctors this has to be more than just the chemo.”

That’s not an accident. That’s a deliberate attempt to shield NBC News viewers from any mention of prayer or God. Whether that’s a shot across the bow at Christianity or just part of the overall left-wing gun agenda, which has made a mockery out of the phrase “thoughts and prayers,” we can’t say. Either way, it’s unacceptable and disturbing.

While we’re at it, hats off to David Muir and ABC News, who also ran a story on Trebek. Unlike NBC, they kept the part about prayer in the segment. Somehow, their viewers survived.

  1. That’s why I do watch David Muir at night, but NEVER watch NBC any longer, no matter what the time of day. I am tired of the Media trying to indoctrinate all of us.

    • I know God does heal. I had an accident when I was 5. I shouldn’t be walking, I was burned from hot water. About 9 years old. My Mom sent me to the neighbor. She prayed for me and next day I had 3 small blisters on one finger. My blood test is perfect. MDs are amazed. I remember WW11. Pretty old. I am in better shape than than most people 45. I am BLESSED.
      God Bless Trebek! Liberal Media should try praying. Let’s put them on prayer list for salvation.

  2. Neither democrats and liberals, nor the MSM believe in God, so they cannot be expected to believe in prayer let alone publish anything about the power of prayer and what it does.

  3. I used to watch Nightly News on NBC I haven’t watched that news since They Trashed President Trump. By NBC Segregating “Prayer” in their interview. I pray The Lord Jesus Christ Curses that Cancer by the root in the authority of His Name. May that cancer die 100%. May MSM & Hollywood know there is a God in Heaven who answers prayers. May Alex Trebek be made Whole in Jesus Christ name.

  4. When I became aware of Alex’s illness, I started including him in my prayer, routinely. I’m reasonably certain similar minded believers did as well. He is a very good man, a gentleman, and easy to love. I shall continue to pray for a complete recovery.
    It is too bad that our medical profession is subdued by the almighty dollar driven pharmaceutical companies. I know that cancer is curable, as the Nobel Prize for medicine was bestowed upon a Dr. Otto Warburg in 1931 for his proof that cancer cannot exist in an oxygen-rich environment. He had cured every patient on which he used the treatment. So, who is the real Devil, and how must we of faith fight him off? God bless, keep, and cure you, Alex Trebek.

  5. A positive attitude is very important in good health. Millions of people expressing good wishes and PRAYING for you will have a great effect on your attitude.

    BOTH are very important to your recovery from ill health.

  6. Even many doctors believe that, for whatever reason, prayer does have a positive effect in healing. Like the previous person said, whether it is because God hears OR that the person that is ill has a much more positive outlook, there is clearly something at work. Just a note: Alex, watch a LOT of funny movies. Years ago, I read that people who laugh a lot (at movies, comedians, etc) also have this on their side for healing. The body knows: if you are thinking and feeling positive, it helps you to heal – So, Laugh and combat those chemo blues.

  7. None of my family or extended family watch national network including PBS & NPR news any more. Too much negative news and bald faced lies promoted by all of them. MAGA!!! KAG!!!! Trump and Conservatives 2020, 2022, 2024, 2026 and after until this Nation is back on course after the obomination Obama forced on this Nation and the American Citizens!!!!

  8. I regularly watch Jeopardy and am pleased that Alex is responding favorably to his cancer treatment, but his battle with that disease is far from over. I know several people who died of cancer and prayers did not help them.

    • To Larry Harvey… I know it’s hard when you lose someone to cancer or any disease, accident, or whatever the circumstances were leading to death. It’s sad, very very sad😢😢😢Sometimes though it’s just that’s person time to go home, God has called them home. Prayer is a Powerful tool for healing. Believing in prayer is powerful as well. Having no doubt in your heart,spirit,mind,soul that God Can Heal and Perform Miracles. No it doesn’t work all the time though. But you have to look at all the circumstances. Alex was being cured at an unheard of rate. That’s a miracle. And other peoples comments of how they were miraculously cured is power of prayer – Miracles! Jesus healed the blind, mute, lame, diseased etc. Those were miracles with prayer! The point I’m trying to make is Never Give Up On Prayer and Never Stop Believing in Miracles. They happen everyday! Sometimes Miracles are little ones too. Those little Miracles happen a lot!! Has anything extraordinary or unbelievable, unexpected (all in good ways) happen to you? Have you ever thanked God for something you didn’t think would happen? Found something you’ve been looking for? Examples like these are a Miracles too. It’s hard to write down what I’m trying to say, I’m not very good at it, but you have to admit Alex Trebeks tumours literals vanishing away is a True Miracle from God and God receives Prayer through his only begotten Son, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ🙏🙏🙏I believe a Miracle is coming your way Larry😊😊😊🙏🙏🙏👍👍👍God Bless You my brother in Christ.

  9. Praise and thanksgiving belong to the only LIVING GOD who hears and answers prayer! NBC needs our prayers to acknowledge GOD. When media opens minds to give GOD credit HE deserves our nation will improve in all ways.
