Denzel Washington recently revealed what God has been telling him to do every time he prays.

The Academy Award-winning actor was among the speakers at a Christian men's conference hosted by First Baptist Orlando in Florida on Saturday, The Cristian Post reports.

"At 66, getting ready to be 67, having just buried my mother, I made a promise to her and to God, not just to do good the right way, but to honor my mother and my father by the way I live my life, the rest of my days on this Earth. I'm here to serve, to help, to provide," Washington shared at "The Better Man Event."

"In every prayer, all I hear is: 'Feed my sheep.' That's what God wants me to do," the actor added.

"What's that mean? What I found out in the last couple of years is there are all kinds of sheep. So that's why I talk to experienced shepherds to help guide me.

"The world has changed. What is our role as a man? The John Wayne formula is not quite a fit right now. But strength, leadership, power, authority, guidance, patience are God's gift to us as men. We have to cherish that, not abuse it."

The "Malcolm X" star continued:

"[The Bible] says in the last days we'll become lovers of ourselves. The number one photograph now is a selfie. So we all want to lead. We're willing to do anything — ladies and young men — to be influential... Fame is a monster and we all have these ladders and battles, roads we have to walk in our given lives. Be you famous or whoever's out there listening, we all have our individual challenges. It's cliché [but] money, don't make it better. It doesn't. Fame just magnifies the problems and the opportunities."

The three-time Golden Globes winner added:

"Stay on your knees. Watch me, but listen to God. I hope that the words in my mouth and the meditation of my heart are pleasing in God's sight, but I'm human. I'm just like you. What I have will not keep me on this Earth for one more day. Share what you know, inspire who you can, seek advice. If you want to talk to one someone, talk to the one that can do something about it. Constantly develop those habits."

Washington concluded by acknowledging that although he has money and fame, what he's discovered is that one always needs to leave "room to learn."

Kanye West has officially turned his back on secular music after accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

Rap music helped make Kanye West a multi-millionaire many times over. But according to Kanye's pastor, rap music is "the devil's music," and he wants no part of it.

Adam Tyson, West's pastor at Placerita Bible Church in California, says Kanye turned his back on secular music after he recently became a born-again Christian.

"One time, he told me that he wasn't going to rap [anymore]," Tyson said in an interview.

"I said, 'Why not?' He said, 'That's the devil's music'. I said, 'Hey, man. Rap is a genre. You can rap for God'."

Tyson told Kanye he could still use his God-given rap talent to make millions for his church.

But Kanye told him the devil's music was responsible for his sinful behavior.

"The guilt of sin brought him down low. He would say the devil basically brought him to a place where he just felt like he was in bondage to his sin. So he said, 'I got delivered'."

Kanye also said his wife Kim Kardashian's revealing style of dress was becoming a problem for him.

He said Kim's provocative style of dress was negatively affecting his "soul and spirit."
