Kirk Franklin has been very transparent about his demons, and what he struggles with in his personal life.
The Gospel legend recently took to Instagram with a photo of his father whom he has never had a relationship with, letting the world know that he received a call saying his biological father only had 3-6 months left to live.
Franklin explained how he was given up for adoption, and for that reason carried a lot of hate in his heart and never felt good enough…
Franklin is on the road to forgiveness, and is asking everyone for their hands in prayer.
Take a look at the post below:

So….. Two days ago, I received an anonymous call that my biological father, who I never knew, has 3-6 months to live. I’ve lived my entire life hating this man. He and my biological mother gave me up for adoption, and it left me never feeling good enough….to this very day. I took my hate for him and used it as fuel to be the best father I could be for my own. But what I did wrong, is I never took that fuel, and turn it into forgiveness….and that is wrong. Wrong for him, me, and the God I proclaim to represent. How can I preach what I don’t practice. So I flew to Houston yesterday to do that. It’s painful, it’s a process, but how disappointed I would be in myself for this man to leave this earth without being forgiven. He deserves to receive what God gives me everyday. Pray for him, and for me. God this is hard…I weep as I write.
