Sometimes the power of prayer just isn’t enough.

Us Magazine reports that Michael Jackson‘s children, Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket, held a prayer circle for their father as he passed away from heart failure on the morning of June 25.

According to Jackson’s chef, Kai Chase, she was preparing lunch in the deceased singer’s Holmby Hills mansion when the atmosphere in the home became chaotic.

“About 12:05 or 12:10 Dr. [Conrad] Murray runs down the steps and screams, ‘Go get Prince!’ He’s screaming very loud. I run into the den where the kids are playing,” Chase recalls. “Prince runs to meet Dr. Murray and from that point on you could feel the energy in the house change.”

Chase continues, “I walked into the hall and I saw the children there. The daughter was crying. I saw paramedics running up the stairs.”

As the paramedics struggled to revive Jackson, the children, along with their nanny, a housekeeper and Chase joined hands in prayer for the King of Pop. “We were all praying, ‘Help Mr. Jackson be O.K.’ Then everyone was very quiet,” Chase says.
