Justin Bieber is asking for prayer as he recently found out he has a rare syndrome that causes paralysis to half his face.

"I wanted to update you guys," says Bieber on a TikTok video. "As you can probably see on my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsey Hunt Syndrome. It's from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves. It's caused my face to have paralysis."

Bieber has cancelled some upcoming shows because of the news, saying 'I'm just not physically capable of doing them."

He is married to well-known model Hailey Bieber, née Baldwin, and the couple is collectively vocal about their Christian faith.

"I have hope and I trust God and I trust that this is all for a reason. I’m not sure what that is right now but in the meantime, I’m going to rest and I love you guys."

Bieber says he believes his face will return back to normal, it's just a matter of time. In that time, he plans to rest and recover.

"I love you guys and keep me in your prayers."
