Dancehall artiste Shaniel Muir used Instagram on Friday to offer a word of prayer for 17-year-old Kaylan Dowdie, who is on a life support machine after she was beaten at an illegal party held in Barbican.
The Yamabella hitmaker prayed for Dowdie’s healing and speedy recovery and also asked for strength and guidance for the teen’s mom, Veneisha Buckley, who has been very vocal in demanding justice for her daughter.
“Heavenly Father, you said NO WEAPON formed against us shall prosper! And we can do ALL things through you who strengthens us,” began Muir in her prayer.
“I am far from pure or perfect, but today heavenly father, I want to ask you for your guardian angels to cover, mend, mould and put back together what is broken and heal your child in the name of Jesus you will bring her through in Jesus name you have done miracles Lord, and today we lift our voices all together and ask you for you for healing In Jesus Name,” she added.
Muir’s prayer was well received by many on the social media platform, who noted that upon reading it, they felt the artiste’s sincerity. They said it was a powerful prayer.
Muir wasn’t the only one to take note of the incident, dancehall artiste Ce’Cile also took to Instagram to condemn the incident which she described as senseless.
The teen was involved in a fight at an illegal party which had been previously shut down by lawmen from the Grants Pen Police Station at about 7:45 p.m. on November 7.
On arrival of the officers, a laptop was seized and all patrons who had gathered at the party were instructed to leave.
Later that evening, police say they received a report that a teen and another woman were beaten and stabbed by a group of women at the same location.
