Pastor Dimas: Why I’m praying for Kim Kardashian

New evidence is surfacing that the group that carried out the invasion of Kim Kardashian’s apartment/hotel on the evening of Oct 2 in Paris were no amateurs. The gunmen involved had a strategic plan.

It is sad for anyone to experience a home invasion. My worst nightmare is to one day find a stranger lurking in my house, or to open the door and see gunmen.

Only Kim K. and a select few people know all that took place in that bathroom, with wicked men, with firearms.

One man has argued that you cannot get guns in Paris. He must have forgotten about the terrorist attacks in Paris. I was there, ministering with my family, and can assert that guns are on the streets of Paris. (You can find my report on Fox Friends called “Pastor is Hungry for Prayer.”)

Kim K.’s life is extremely public, most of the time that’s by choice. We all have made comments concerning her celebrity, but let our thoughts be balanced with compassion for a victim of a violent crime.

Did the gunmen restrain themselves from sexual assault? I pray that they did.

Years ago I grew up in an upper middle class community in New York City, a “nice” area, and yet my cheerful, happy neighbor was robbed and raped at gunpoint. — She was never the same again.

Kim Kardashian has withdrawn from the limelight and appears to be showing the classic traits of the victimized among us.

There are some individuals who hate Ms. Kardashian’s success and delight over her misfortune.

Others think the incident in Paris was a ruse to get attention.

Lawyer Nancy Grace agrees with the assessment that this incident was not a publicity stunt. She said, “I definitely believe it was a set-up, but I don’t necessarily think the Kardashians set themselves up.”

Let’s hope that Kim K. recovers well and that her smile returns.

Kim K.’s  life is extremely public, most of the time that’s by choice. We all have made comments concerning her celebrity, but let our thoughts be balanced with compassion for a victim of a violent crime.

I know that there is a segment of the American public who just cannot feel compassion for a person like her — someone who has made millions in a non-traditional way. But, please remember, she is a fellow human being, a mother made of flesh and blood and, plagued by human depravity… just like you and I.

We all make good and bad decisions in life. We all are affected by the good and bad decisions of others.

I believe that this 35-year-old reality star has had a nightmare come true, a situation that I wish on no one.

Getting robbed at gunpoint never fully leaves a person.

This woman has experienced her share of trauma: in the past with Nicole Brown Simpson’s death, and in the present with the reality of her own temporary home being invaded.  

I encourage you to pray for Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, North, Saint, and the rest of their family. They need to heal, regroup, and think deeply about the way they will conduct their affairs as they move forward in this challenging world.
