"Dr. Murray told the congregation he wanted their support," the eyewitness told us. "He said he wanted to assure them he was doing fine, and he asked for their prayers for the journey he has ahead."
With tears welling in his eyes, Murray told the congregation, "I know what trouble is. I, with my compassion, was only trying to help my fellow man. But it appears I was at the wrong place at the wrong time."
Miranda Sezcik, spokesperson for Murray's attorney Edward Chernoff, told RadarOnline.com: "There wasn't a dry eye in the church."
Conrad was Michael's live-in doctor and administered the anesthetic Propofol to him at his home. The drug is intended for hospital-use only. Jackson's June 25 death has been ruled a homicide by the L.A. County Medical Examiner. The LAPD is continuing to investigate Murray's involvement with the singer's sudden passing.
