(KGTV) - Did Joel Osteen Ministries really respond to a woman's Facebook request for a prayer by demanding $24.99 a month?

No.

A Facebook post appears to be a prayer request to Joel Osteen Ministries.

The person asks for prayer for their marriage.

But in response, the request is rejected unless the person makes a monthly donation of $24.99.

However, this phony post was a satire created by the "Hope It Helps" Facebook page.
