pat and matt A
Married couple, currently separated in need of prayer


Matt and Pat A live in Arizona and have been married for 16 years although for the past 6 months they have been separated

Matt and Pat A have three beautiful children from their union. They have been married for 16 years and until recently have been happy. Matt has met another woman who claimed to be a family friend but who had affairs with married men before. She now has found Matt and he has accepted her advances.

We ask from prayers to be said for Matt and Pat A and their three children. That Jesus, our Lord and Savior can step in an help divert the evil of this friend and help Matt to see the evil of her ways and the goodness that is in his family and that he can see the love that his wife still holds for him even though he has brought her heartache revealing his affair and continuing it.

my prayer are with both Pat and Matt in this time of of martial crises. marriage is scared. Scripture says that the marriage bed is undefiled. My heart felt prayer would be that Matt hear that small voice telling him to return to his wife and family.But before that he must go before the Lord as did David

I had this same thing happen to me,I did not deal with it well at first, I ended up being entangled in my own sins which made matters worse. when I returned to the lord and trusted him he healed my marriage. the lord wanted me to stay with my husband but i did not want to however; i stayed with my husband. I obeyed the Lord and the lord has blessed our marriage and family. I hope you do not reach the point of despair that I did. I urge you to read Gods word,find someone to study with, and pray. here are some words from i christian song "this could be your defining moment". also here is a scripture I know by heart :Trust in the Lord your God with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5&6
Take heart my husband accepted the Lord as his savior and got Baptized and continues to bless my family. I will pray for you family.

dear Matt and Patt A. i will be praying for you and your family. first ask for forgiveness from the Lord, then ask your wife for forgiveness. But also to Patt, remember what God has brought together, no man can break up or come between. Search your heart and forgive your husband,remember Jesus said that if you don't forgive neither will God forgive you. I know you may be thinking that you can never trust him again, or that he cheated on you, he broke your heart, Those are just the thoughts the devil wants you to have toward your husbandi urge you to pray while we pray for you. With Gods love you can forgive your husband, and he then can forgive hiself. Im sure he is carrying around alot of guilt of what he did to your marriage.I will be praying for you. something that will help a great deal is marriage counseling with a pastor who is experienced in this field. i will keep you in my prayers.
--your sister in Christ, kedra

I pray for you as I pray for myself. I hope the God helps you and I hope He does it swiftly. I have learned that no matter how good something is, and how reasonable, you cannot make a person see things your way. If a spouse strays from the marriage, that spouse will have to see the truth on his or her own. God will let him see it in time and I pray that if this man sees the truth and returns, forgiveness will be truly heartfelt. I pray that there will be no resentments between the two. I pray that the wife's heart be healed and the two of them can go forward with their faces turned up.
Please God, help them. Don't let anyone suffer more than they have to.

Hi my husband and I have been togethor for over 14 years. We have always been very much in love and very close. I have always had a close relationship with the Lord. Recently my husband started making statements to me like "You are only with me because you are use to it" Etc. I did not pick up on these little comments because I knew that they were not true. Well we wee hanging around with some friends another couple that had children vewry close to my children ages. when I first meet my friends mother-in-law she was talking to my mother about my friend and said that she had a habit of going after her husbands friends. I do not normally judge people by what others say. I really liked my friend and her husband. My trusting heart:) Unknown to me my husband was going through a early midlife crisis (he is only 33). He did not feel attractive. she was younger than us. She started telling him how wonderful he was. How he was so easy to talk to (Which he is). Then she started telling him about all these things going on in her life. That we have since found to be false. I was not paying attention to my marriage or my husbands underlieing needs (this are reasons not excuses for his behavior) In a marriage it takes two to be working at it. He was trying and I wasn't paying attention. Cause I thought our marriage was perfect and strong. he just did not know i thought that and That I loved him with all my heart. She ended up telling him she loved and they kissed. At this point his christen bliefs did a whole lot of kicking and he decided that she was not the person he was thinking she was. She was and is a liar. I was the women he wanted. By this time I had woken up and started working on my marriage. we had gone away for a week as a family and I was right there for him. We went for counseling and I found that my communication was not very open nor was his. We are so open and honest with each other now. Each working on the others needs and concerns. I think if this friend had been any type of a good person he might not have realized so quickly his possible mistakes. We were bestfriends before we started a relationship this helped I was not accusitory when we talked. There is always reason for action "there is a nursing belief" I wanted to understand him and find what our problem in our marriage was. We did and we are doing fantastic. Come to find out she was doing this to two other friends who came to me. (males) I pray for her. she is searching GOD should be her path. I think this was why she came so much to my extended families house we are all strong christens but some where we lost her. Probably when she took that first wrong step toward my husband. When this I started I hit the floor on my knees and prayed very very long and hard and had a good cry. The lord is with me as always. This was one of the times he was carrying me until I was strong enough to walk then I fought for my marriage. I am praying for you both.:)

My heart and my prayers go out to you both Pat and Matt. I have experienced a similar situation in my marriage as well. God is the only way. Reach out and obey. He will never leave you or forsake you. God Bless and keep you both always in his care. Loving thoughts in Christ.

This happened to me as well. I found out my husband of 5 years cheated on me with someone he used to work with. I would have never thought this could have happened to me. Not only did I have to deal with this but I had to deal with the criticism and shame that both me and my young children had to deal with. Being of strong spiritual faith I began to pray and I realized that in my praying I began to get closer to God. I know now that sometimes it may take things like this to bring people closer to God. It has been over a year now since my husband and I were separated but all I pray now is that God gives me the strength to forgive. You must forgive in order to recieve his blessings. I will keep you in my prayers and remember prayer heals all.

My prayers are with you Matt and Pat. I am going through the same thing myself right now. I've been married for 11 years, and we are now separated. I will be praying for you. The only thing we have to hold onto is God. My husband is an alcoholic on top of everything else. I am barely holding it together. We have two precious children. I would also appreciate your prayers. I don't know if it is God's will for us to ever be together again. My husband sure doesn't act like he wants help. I am trying to attend college, and I'm having trouble keeping focused. I know that if things don't change, there is no way we can ever be together again. I don't want a part-time husband. He has a bad habit of leaving and staying gone for three to five days at a time. This can be very frustrating. I pray that your marriage will be restored. God bless you abundantly.

My prayers are with you..I know how you are feeling! Here is a poem for you:May you always have an angel by your side Watching out for you in all the things you do Reminding you to keep believing in brighter days Finding ways for your wishes and dreams to come true Giving you hope that is as certain as the sun Giving you the strength of serenity as your guide May you always have love and comfort and courage

And may you always have an angel by your side Someone there to catch you if you fall Encouraging your dreams Inspiring your happiness Holding your hand and helping you through it all In all of our days, our lives are always changing Tears come along as well as smiles Along the roads you travel, may the miles be a thousand times more lovely than lonely May they give you gifts that never, ever end: someone wonderful to love and a dear friend in whom you can confide May you have rainbows after every storm May you have hopes to keep you warm

And may you always have an angel by your side

Dear Pat and Matt A.,
Pray together that God will heal your marriage. Pat, in order to move on with your life, no matter what happens in your marriage, forgiveness to Pat is essential. It is painful; we want the person who hurt us to hurt as much as we did! However, hate is poison, it eats away at our soul, leaving us alone, bitter, and empty, without soul or spirit.
May God bring you both peace. Matt, may God come into your life so that you may ask forgiveness, no matter where the future takes you and your wife.
Think of your children, temptation and lust are the power of the devil, and he only wants to do bad things, so he can rule supreme over God, which we know can never happen in the kingdom of God! Think of your children, who you conceived in love, and raised together for many years. They need a mother and a father.
Get to know each other again. Go away on a weekend/week long trip without the children. Fall in love with each other again, think about what attracted you to each other in the first place.
The grass sometimes looks greener on the other side, but beware of insects that sting you!
Peace be with you and your family,
martee

I am new here. I've been married 13+ years and my husband and I have been separated for 3 months. He has seriously fallen away from the Lord and says he's not a Christian anymore. He chose to leave me but now wants to come back home. He has no intention of going to church or living for the Lord any longer, but I don't believe I can divorce him for that. Besides, I don't believe in divorce except for infidelity (there has been none). I don't know if I should allow him to come home or stick to my conditions that he come to a peace with the Lord first. I think that may take years and I don't want to risk us getting evern farther apart emotionally. We also have a 7 yr. old daughter that is missing her daddy. I cannot put her through the divorce of her parents. Please pray that God would give me clear direction on whether I am to let my husband come home as he is now or if I'm to wait. I just don't want to get in the way of what the Lord is doing! Thanks. :)
