“I win battles I don’t even have to fight because God fights them for me.”

DMX joined Kanye West leading a prayer at his latest Sunday Service session over the weekend.

The veteran rapper, who was released from prison in January stopped by West’s weekly event on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17).

The crowd was particularly roused as DMX took the mic to lead one of his signature powerful prayers.

“I win battles I don’t even have to fight because God fights them for me,” he says.

X’s service was followed by Kanye performing “Power” and “Lift Yourself,” with its most notable lyrics being, “Poopy-di scoopScoop-diddy-whoop. Whoop-di-scoop-di-poop. Poop-di-scoopty. Scoopty-whoop.”

Kim Kardashian shared a video of the prayer on Twitter, while DMX’s manager posted clips and photos from the session on Instagram. In one post he wrote, “I was blown away today , not because of the setting , not because of the audience but because of his glow , because of his purpose! God talks through this man ! I can promise this was not rehearsed, this was a fluid strain of thought … and the message was overwhelmingly clear!”
