Teddy Campbell, the husband of gospel singer Tina Campbell from the Grammy Award winning group Mary Mary, is joining with his wife to ask fans and supporters to pray for their marriage.
The Campbells let it be known that they were undergoing issues within their marriage recently and Teddy, the 38-year-old gospel drummer who has also worked as the percussionist for "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno, took to his own Facebook page to reveal that he and his wife were fasting to seek divine help in their marriage.
"Well, Im [sic]actually writing you on behalf of my wife Tina and I," Campbell wrote on his Facebook page, echoing the message that his wife shared on ilovemarymary.com. "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."
After insisting that he and his wife were ready to fight for their marriage, Teddy revealed that he and his wife would fast for 30 days and shared some scriptural references that they could turn to for more insight on the matter.
"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(SIC)," Teddy wrote on his Facebook page. "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."
The drummer shared 2 Chronicles 7:14 and James 5:16 in his message, much like his wife shared on her website before thanking fans for their support and vowing to share more in 30 days. Tina, 39, first revealed issues within her marriage in the June issue of Ebony magazine.
"Once I became aware [of the affair], I initially wanted to kill my husband …I was considering adjusting the will, the living trust and all that kind of stuff," Campbell said of her husband's infidelities in Ebony. "I did physically try to stab him. Several times … I never got to the point of physical harm, not really, but my words … My words hurt."
