AllMusic Review by

A cast-iron collection of worship songs in the best T.D. Jakes tradition, A WING AND A PRAYER features the uplifting talents of the Potter's House Mass Choir and various vocal interjections by the Bishop himself over the course of 11 stirring and sometimes majestic readings of contemporary worship songs. Notable among these are the Aretha Franklin-influenced contribution of Tommye Young West on the urban-flavored gospel of "A Path in the Sea" and Myron Williams's rendition of "Jesus You Are My Everything," the latter featuring a typical take-no-prisoners aural assault courtesy of band and choir. With the wealth of musical talent and persuasive religious proselytizing on display here, it's hard to imagine anyone coming away from a service featuring this combination of talent and sheer vocal power unconvinced of the presence of a greater power.
