*Dr. Conrad Murray, the man charged in Michael Jackson’s death, visited Joel Osteen’s mega-church in Houston on Sunday for private prayer between morning services.
According to sources at Lakewood Church, Murray met with Joel and his wife Victoria for about 10 minutes in between the 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. sermons. Joel’s brother Paul was also part of the pray date, as was Murray’s attorney, Ed Chernoff, and friend Jeffrey, reports TMZ.
Osteen has acknowledged that Murray is going through a “hard time” — which is one of the reasons he was invited to the service.

In other Murray news, the doctor’s lawyers may not be ready for the preliminary hearing next month in his involuntary manslaughter case, because they still have not received the full criminal file.
Miranda Sevcik, spokesperson for Murray’s lawyer, Ed Chernoff, tells TMZ they have only received 3,500 pages of discovery, while a news report indicated that the D.A.’s office claims it has “hundreds of thousands of pages of material.”
“Sevcik told TMZ the defense team may ask to delay the preliminary hearing — set for June 14 – if all of the documents are not delivered soon.
