On Tuesday (Dec. 17), Harris shared a car prayer session where she specifically accused Smith of cheating with The Flash actress Candice Patton.

“God is mad wild,” she said. “There’s a lot going on . . . Help me God. So, as I was taking Demi to school, God was like ‘Yeah, you gonna pray and you’re gonna post it.'”

“God, I would like to lift my husband up and ask you, Lord Father God, to please just cover him with your blood,” Harris continued.

“I ask in the mighty name of Jesus that you go to him where he is right now and you shake him up, God. You shake him up and you stir him up . . . I ask that wherever he is broke, you fix him [and] you heal him.”

“My husband, he’s hurting and Candice, she’s hurting . . . For her to go out here, Father God, and seek a married man, I just pray that you give her grace and mercy through all of this,” Harris prayed.
