Can God fix my TV?


Thank you for your interesting question. I am sorry to say that I do not believe that prayer will fix your television. I am sure that God is able to do this but cannot say for sure, as far as I am aware, there are no accounts in the Bible of God fixing a man made item.

"God ... made the world and everything in it" (Acts 17:24) but these are natural things like animals, trees and fish.

God has given us the ability to be creative and to build things. I suggest that a more Biblical thing to pray is for God to provide a way for your television to be fixed through finance or providing someone to repair it, or give you another one.

This may also be a good time for you to consider how you are growing. If you spend a lot of time watching TV it may be distracting you from God. Without knowing you or what you watch on TV it is hard to comment in more detail. We can grow closer to God by delighting to spend time with him in prayer and worship and reading the Bible on our own and with God's people.

In summary, it is possible that God may fix your TV but it is unlikely as there is nothing in the bible to say that God fixes man made items. We suggest you use your time for God and pursue him: pray to him, read the bible and spend time with other Christians. 

I do hope this general answer to your question goes some way to helping you find peace with God through Jesus Christ our Lord. If you want to know more about what Jesus has done for you please watch the video on the main part of our site:
