Literally! Earlier this week Evangelist Juanita Bynum was the victim of domestic abuse at the hands of her husband and bishop, Thomas W. Weeks.

Early Wednesday morning, world-renowned evangelist and prophetess Juanita Bynum was allegedly assaulted by her estranged husband, Bishop Thomas W. Weeks III, in an Atlanta parking lot, according to police. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the couple met at the Renaissance Concourse Hotel to discuss their marital issues, but the reconciliation turned violent when Weeks allegedly attacked Bynum, leaving bruising "around her neck and upper torso," said Officer Ronald Campbell of the Atlanta Police Department. Reportedly a hotel bellman who witnessed the alleged assault in the parking lot physically pulled Weeks away from his wife. [SOURCE]
Dr. Bynum has since filed charges against Weeks at an undisclosed location and a warrant has been issued for his arrest. She also has released the following statement:
“I am currently recovering from all of my injuries and resting well. There are so many great things happening for me in my future and so much to look foward to concerning my destiny. This too shall pass.”

"The Bible says in Proverbs 4:25: 'Let your eyes look right on with fixed purpose and let your gaze be straight before you.'"

"Thank you for your concern and please continue to pray for my recovery!"
