Celebrity songbird Justin Bieber, who has used his social media platform to talk about his faith, took to Instagram once again over the weekend to share several guided prayers with his 122 million Instagram followers.The video prayers are generally 4-6 minutes long, contemplative in style and are led by Bieber’s pastor, Judah Smith. Bieber first mentioned the prayers in a September post.

“Here’s a guided prayer,” he wrote at the time. “When you have a quiet moment get into a comfortable position and listen. They have really been helping me and thought I would share.”

His most recent posts are brief, similarly encouraging his followers to get comfortable and enjoy. One focuses on Romans 8:28, the verse that reminds believers that nothing can separate us from the love of God.

The video starts with Pastor Judah reading the Scripture and leading viewers into reciting three statements pertaining to the Scripture reference. He then models meditative breathing often used in the ancient practice of contemplative prayer, FaithWire reports.

The video then shifts into an extended prayer.

“God, thank you we are loved,” Pastor Judah prays. “We are loved not because of our own doing, our own earning or deserving. . . but because of who you are. You are love and you love us unconditionally and endlessly.”

“And we thank you for that.”
