Pray for A.J. Jewell’s Family and Kandi Burress

Last night, A.J. Jewell, fiance of songwriter, singer and Atlanta Housewife, Kandi Buress was killed following an altercation in the parking lot of Body Tap, an Atlanta strip club. A.J. Jewell sustained a blow to his head that would later on take his life, leaving his five children with no father. This is the second time this week that an altercation left a black man dead and his family to pick up the pieces. The first of which was Derrieon Albert who was senselessly beat to death and had the whole beating recorded. Please join me in prayer, or in your own quiet time, pray for A.J. Jewell’s family, children and former fiance. Also, please pray for Derrieon Albert’s family and friends and the state of our society at large.

Heavenly Father,

I submit my prayer to you on behalf of those with hurting hearts. Yesterday evening, family and friends of A.J. Jewell found out that their precious son, father, brother, friend and lover were taken away from them too soon. I pray that you would be the comforter who rushes to the side of the broken-hearted. Right now people want answers to questions that may not be answered anytime soon, so I pray dear Lord that you would grant them patience while they wait. But not only patience, but your peace that passes all understanding. A.J. has left behind 5 children. 5 children without a father. But I pray that they will not become another case study for statistics but that by your hand, their every need will be provided. Call upon those family and friends who are trustworthy and have real love for those children. Shower those children with your precious love so that they may never lack for a moment in feeling loved. I also pray for Kandi, that you would make her strong in the days to come. Do not let her bow to this adversity, but let her be strengthened. Let her weeping endure for the night but not last beyond the appropriate period. May she rise up and spring to deeds of love on behalf of those children, his family and her own. Lastly Lord, I pray for our society at large. You know very well what we are in the midst of. You know how lives are being senselessly taken by violence, but it has also been said in your word that the kingdom suffers violence and the violent take it back by force. So may the righteous rise up and drown out all of the evil, adversarial spirits in existence in the world. As cliche as it may be to say, I am praying for a claiming peace on earth. Freeze up the plot of the enemy. Grab back your children on their way to commit violent and senseless acts. Reclaim them all for your glory. I claim your greatness above all of this hate. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN
