Internationally renowned pop singer Katy Perry performed the Super Bowl halftime show for over 100 million viewers. Perry now says that she prepared for her performance with prayer and received a message from God before the show.
Perry, the daughter of two pastors, said, "I over prepared myself and did a lot of prayer and meditation” to ready herself for the performance.
She told E! News’ Ryan Seacrest, "It's funny, I was praying and I got a word from God and He says, 'You got this and I got you.' And then I was on top of the lion and a guy, a random guy, just looked on me with a headset that I've never communicated with before and he just looked me straight in the eyes and said, 'You got this.' And I was like, 'Oh, this is God confirming I can do this."
Fox News reports Perry quoted Psalm 118:24 on social media on the day of the Super Bowl.
"Today is the day that the Lord has made! I will rejoice and be glad in it," the singer posted to her Twitter account.
Perry has said in the past that she does not identify herself as a Christian but believes in God and prayer.
