Kanye West is $53 million in debt, according to his tweets, and he wants us to pray he will overcome. 

"I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt... Please pray we overcome... This is my true heart..." the rapper tweeted Saturday.  

West recently dropped The Life of Pablo, with the help of Christian rapper Kirk Franklin.  

Franklin's support of West caused such a stir that Franklin took to social media to stand by his collaboration choices.  

"Kanye is not me. I am not him. He is my brother I am proud to do life with. No sprints, but Marathons; like most of us are on. Before one song was released, I was crucified because my brother asked me to take a picture," Franklin posted on Facebook

"Again 'no Kanye, you're not good enough?' No. That is a dangerous message I believe we send to the world when our posture is they have to meet certain requirements before they are worthy to kiss the ring. It says people are not redeemable, forgivable or candidates for grace. That my friend is religious. I will not turn my back on my brother. I will love him, prayerfully grow with him. However long he'll have me, and however long the race takes. To a lot of my Christian family, I'm sorry he's not good enough, Christian enough, or running at your pace...and as I read some of your comments, neither am I. That won't stop me from running. Pray we win," Franklin concluded.  

West took to Twitter to defend Franklin as well.  

"Please forgive the profanity and give hugs and blessings to my brother Kirk for standing by me... In a few hours the journey begins..." West tweeted.  

During West's Twitter rants, he also addressed persecution and compared himself to the Apostle Paul.  

"Paul ... The most powerful messenger of the first century... Now we stand here 20 centuries later... Because he was a traveler..." West tweeted.  

Next, he tweeted: "He was a learned man not of the original sect so he was able to take the message to the rest of the world..." 

Then: "He was saved from persecution due to his Roman citizenship... I have the right to speak my voice..."
