It may seem contradictory for a woman who sells sex toys to also record a gospel single, but that kind of contrast is par for the course for Real Housewife and singer/songwriter Kandi Burrus. Her single “Stay Prayed Up” has already shot to #1 on the iTunes gospel chart with the help of gospel star Marvin Sapp, who also sings on the track. The Grammy Award winner, entrepreneur, radio host, reality TV star and mother is having a great year thus far. Newly engaged to TV producer Todd Tucker, who appears with her on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Burrus has used her popularity on the show to propel herself to even more success.

She owns two Atlanta-based boutiques “TAGS” and “TAGS II” promotes her own iPod/iPad app “Kandi Koated Spades”  hosts the “Ladies Night Male Revue,” and the radio show “Kandi Coated Nights” and sells her adult play toys under the Bedroom Kandi label. It seems staying prayed up is working for Burruss. Listen to “Stay Prayed Up.”

“No mixed signals. The song clearly states that I’m a sinner,” Burruss told She said the song is for “people who believe in God but [know that] they’re not perfect Christians … The song is my testimony of what I’ve been through and how I deal with things. I think a lot of people will relate.”

  2. It seems common place for many of us Christians with tares or unpurged lust and pride, to continue to think and believe God. But, it also seems wrong for us to see a person eaten up with the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life and for us begin to encourage them in their weakness. Most of us are fighting a besetting sin; most of us struggle with things of this world that’s not of God; and often times with trying to love the Lord and maintain certain aspects of the world. But what I am convince of: We should not be encouraging anyone in their lust or weakness. I’m sure Kandi loves the Lord, but it is obvious she is having trouble overcoming the things of this world… I’m not judging… just saying you can’t love both God and the world.

    “O Lord , thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord , thou knowest it altogether. Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it. Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee. For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. Do not I hate them, O Lord , that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalms 139:1-8, 10-24 KJV)
