Larry Trotter hospitalized with ‘serious illness,’ asks for prayers


Bishop Larry Trotter, longtime pastor of Chicago’s Sweet Holy Spirit Church known for hit gospel songs such as “My Worship Is for Real” and “It’s Only a Test,” is now asking for prayers after he was hospitalized last Wednesday with a “serious illness” following a trip to Israel.

“Thank you for your prayers. This is day number 6 of my hospitalization. I am being treated for a very serious illness and condition. PLEASE PRAY FOR ME! My kids brought Minister Louis Farrakhan to see me this morning!” he wrote on his Facebook page along with a photo of Farrakhan at his bedside.

Church spokesman Sean Howard revealed in a statement last Friday that Trotter developed health issues while on a 10-day trip to Israel and was admitted to a local hospital shortly after his return to the U.S. last week.

“Bishop Trotter has been hospitalized following a 10-day mission trip to Israel. During the trip he was feeling uncomfortable but yet fulfilled his duties as the tour guide for the 40-person Clergy Mission. After arriving in the United States on Wednesday (8/16), he was immediately taken to a local hospital,” Howard said. Christian Post
