Oprah Winfrey believes prayer has the power to heal.
The 63-year-old 60 Minutes contributor appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, where she shared concern for those affected by the mass shooting in Las Vegas Sunday night. "I feel the soul of the nation. I feel the ache that we all feel. As the names are coming out and you get to see who they are by name, I speak their names out loud in thoughtful prayer," she told Ellen DeGeneres. "And I think this is a time for all of us to first of all appreciate the ordinary."
Winfrey often thinks about those who lost their lives during the terrorist attack in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001. The thoughts will pop into her head at "the oddest" times, she said, like "when I'm putting on my shoes, when I'm taking a shower, when I'm going to pick up my robe."
