Actress Patricia Heaton says she’s praying for Kanye West because people want to see him fail at Christianity.

“I was just listening to the Kanye interview with Big Boy this morning as I was getting dressed. I never thought I’d be downloading any Kanye West music, but here we are,” the “Everybody Loves Raymond” actress told The Christian Post on Tuesday.

West released his ninth studio album last week, titled Jesus Is King, and its loaded with Scripture and gospel content. The emcee and fashion mogul started hosting Sunday Service events at the top of the year that feature gospel music and, more recently, sermons. A few months ago, West announced that he was a born again Christian and found healing after he was diagnosed as having bipolar disorder.

Heaton, a devout Catholic who frequently speaks out about social issues and her faith, said she’s “definitely praying for” West.

“It’s very hard. I think when someone of his stature in the industry and someone who has his amount of fame makes that kind of proclamation, people then really watch and scrutinize everything he does to catch him falling down,” she said.

“I hope that he is able to handle that, because that’s what’s going to happen,” Heaton predicted.

“People want to see him fail at Christianity,” she said.

Heaton has continued her commitment to humanitarian work alongside the Christian nonprofit organization World Vision and is not afraid to boldly talk about Jesus and eternity.

“I think that if you have the Christian perspective that this time we have on Earth is actually very small compared to eternity, and that our lives are so filled with nonessential information — especially with the advent of social media — there has to be someone talking about eternal things and talking about our souls, and people actually are hungry for that, even if they aren’t aware of it.
