Teddy and Tina Campbell from WeTV’s hit reality show “Mary Mary” are asking for prayers to help repair their marriage.
The lovebirds, who have four children together, have been very honest about the ups and down in their union. In the June issue of Ebony magazine, Tina revealed that her husband participated in a extramarital affair and when she found out about the infidelity she want to stab and divorce him.
Teddy recently shared his side of the story on his Facebook account. Along with admitting his struggles with sexual morality, he asked for fans to pray for their marriage and participate in a month-long fast.
The “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” drummer said he and his wife are “mad at the devil and ready to fight,” for their love.
Check out the full post here:
Hi fans and friends. I hope all of you are well and i thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown me.
Well, Im [sic]actually writing you on behalf of my wife Tina and I. Im [sic]assuming that many of you have seen or heard about our article in Ebony that discussed the challenges of overcoming infidelity in our marriage. Well since the article, the challenges have worsened. My wife’s hope turned into hopelessness & despair and she became unwilling to forgive and fight, until God showed her herself.
My struggle, was with sexual immorality but my wife struggled with anger, rage, unforgiveness, pride, just to name a few, for over 2 decades. The devil wanted to use strongholds that took hold of our lives in our childhood, to remain and destroy us as adults. So now instead of being mad at each other we’re mad at the devil and we’re ready to fight.
Today we began a 30 day fast (May 24th-June 22nd) for complete deliverance & restoration.
If u are able to, please fast and/or pray daily that God would answer our prayer and give us a deeper love & commitment to him and to each other. We believe he still works miracles and he can give us the greatest marriage we could have ever imagined. We can pray alone BUT your prayers will certainly help.
2 Chronicles 7:14
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
“Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”
Thanks in advance. Talk to you in 30 days.
