NEEDAHAND~In response to what you posted on 2/22/08: Father God, I thank You that this marriage IS (not will be) healed and restored. I thank You that the lines of communication will open and remain open throughout this process. I thank You that they will completely forgive each other and not bring up past issues so they can heal. I thank You for drawing her closer to You and leading her back to her husband. May Your Will be done in this marriage, Lord. I thank You that he will turn his cares over to You, so You can keep him perfect peace--peace which surpasses all human understanding. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.

Hi All Please to continue to pray for me and my wife as I continue to pray for you and your familys. Lashonda sent me a very endearing affirmation that has started me on my journey to restore my marriage. Lashonda please share "A Stander's Affirmation." It is very strong and I say it with conviction and I mean it. When she shares it please hold it close and pray with you heart. Armor up with Ephesians and God will bring you home. In Jesus Sweet Name I pray for all of us to be Restored. Love Your Brother in Christ.MJ23CDR

CLINTONDARRON- I am another brother who is still STANDING for my marriage. It has been almost two years since my wife and I have separated and it has been a long long road. We have two little girls and are trying to be there for them and work through our problems/issues. I have prayed in the toughest of times and in the best of times. You HAVE to pray and turn it over to God. He will deliver you from the storms of life. God will see you through as long as you hold on to his hand.

I come to you heavenly father this evening that you will guide my brother in Christ in the midst of his storm. I pray that you will soften his wife's heart and let her see that they were meant to be together. I pray that ALL STANDERS will continue putting their lives in the hands of the all mighty and He will answer prayers in His way and in His time. Dear Lord please reunite the broken families, that they may be a testament to her healing power. Amen

MJ23CDR~In response to what you posted on 2/25/08: Thank you. I will post a Stander's Affirmation of the length isn't too long for the posting requirement. Keep standing. I'm praying for and with you always. God bless you!


2/26/2008 14:47

A Stander's Affirmation--
I AM STANDING FOR THE HEALING OF MY MARRIAGE!... I will not give up, give in, give out or give over 'til that healing takes place. I made a vow, I said the words, I gave the pledge, I gave a ring, I took a ring, I gave myself, I trusted GOD, and said the words, and meant the words... in sickness and in health, in sorrow and in joy, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in good times and in I am standing NOW, and will not sit down, let down, slow down, calm down, fall down, look down or be down 'til the breakdown is torn down!

I refuse to put my eyes on outward circumstances, or listen to prophets of doom, or buy into what is trendy, worldly, popular, convenient, easy, quick, thrifty, or advantageous... nor will I settle for a cheap imitation of God's real thing, nor will I seek to lower God's standard, twist God's will, rewrite God's word, violate God's covenant, or accept what God hates, namely divorce!

In a world of filth, I will stay pure; surrounded by lies I will speak the truth; where hopelessness abounds, I will hope in God: where revenge is easier, I will bless instead of curse; and where the odds are stacked against me, I will trust in God's faithfulness.
I am a STANDER, and I will not acquiesce, compromise, quarrel or quit.. I have made the choice, set my face, entered the race, believed the Word, and trusted God for all the outcome.

I will allow neither the reaction of my spouse, nor the urging of my friends, nor the advice of my loved ones, nor economic hardship, nor the prompting of the devil to make me let up, slow up, blow up, or give up 'til my marriage is healed.

TMY173~In response to what you posted on 2/25/08: I praise God for the fact that you left because of the abuse. No one should have to endure that. I am sorry that things have turned out this way. But God can turn the most impossible situation around for your good.

Father God, I thank You that Your child will be strengthened during this process. I don't know what Your Will is for this marriage, but whatever the outcome, I thank You that Your grace is sufficient for her for the day she is in, and that Your mercies are new every morning.

I pray for her husband's salvation and deliverance from all things that are not pleasing in Your sight. I thank You that he will respect his family and will be the Godly man, husband and father You've placed him on this earth to be. I thank You that he will die to self and live for rigteousness. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.

I despartely need our Father to heal my marriage. My husband without warning 3 weeks ago, told me he was no longer in love with me and wanted a divorce. NO signs nothing, just out of the blue. I am so hurt that I can not breathe at times. Our father has been holding me close. Please, need prayrs for this marriage and my husband to love me again.

2/26/2008 21:40

Dianne B- I am sorry to hear your story. I was hit the same way almost two years ago and it does seem like it comes from no where. But I think in the TOO FAST paced world we live in we miss the signs. I now look back and see that the signs were there and I did not see them. These are the toughest times to go through and probably one of the worst times. But now is the time to give yourself over to God and let him lead the way. I once heard the hardest prayer to pray is any prayer that you tell God that you turn yourself TOTALLY over to Him and His will. NOT our will but His will. I tried it many times and each time I tried to make it happen in my time. That was not the idea. If you say it you have to mean it! When I said it and really did it, I mean really did it... WOW what a change in my life and circumstances. I am not out of the woods yet but at least I do have TRUE FAITH that the Lord is turning my situation around at this very moment. TRUST me you will not feel like it but He is working behind the scenes all the time! God does not believe in divorce and you HAVE to stand in prayer for the healing of your marriage.
I also found recently that people that you think are your friends during this time will give you advice, (leave him and find someone else, why are you staying?) that is not God talking that is the enime talking to you. I lost many people that I thought were my friends. Some of those people I now realize were a bad influence on my life and that is probably what helped to get to my storm! Either way God put those people and our circumstances in our life to bring us back to Him. Listen to Him and give him your body and soul and let Him take it from here!! I promise He will deliver you.

Heavenly father keep your hand in this hurting marriage. Continue to hold her close to you in this time of need and comfort her at night. I pray that ALL standers will continue to stand and pray in the storm. Please Lord help a hurting nation. I pray that all marriages healed and broken will lean on You for restoration in your time and if it be Your will Lord. I pray that you will continue to heal my wife's hurting/hard heart and that she will find her way to you. Guide her and keep her protected in this time of healing. Guide all the spouses and bring them home if they are separated and stop divorce papers that the two parties may come to you for help not lawyers. Guide us all and continue to bless us as a nation. AMEN

2/26/2008 23:05

sp8, You are an awesome man and I hope you will continue to stand in the gap for your fellow men and women who are hurting from seperation and divorce issues. God grant you his speedy recovery of your marriage and all in aggreance said Amen.

I am petitioning the saints of God to pray for my marriage. I have been married for 25 years and to look back over this union, the warning signs were there, but I chose to ignore them. I caught my husband in bed with another woman four years after were were married and I chose to forgive him and continue with my marriage because I made a vow to God and to him. But as the years went by, I did not trust him and that made things very difficult. He abandonded me in 1998 to live with this same woman and I wrestled with filing for a divorce because I don't really believe in divorce. I feel that he tricked me in to allowing him back in my life. I wanted him in my life, but in the quiteness of God's voice I could hear that it wasn't time to take him back in to my life. I needed to depend and trust God for what I needed and desired. I was to seek God's face and learn of him. His small voice let me know that I was lusting after my husband and that there was to be not other "god" before God. I was very disobedient and took him back. It has really been a difficult time. I have since reunited with a church home and I am seeking God's face and studying so I can hear His voice when he speaks to me. My husband has an addiction to alcohol and crack cocaine. He's not the man I married. We talked and set boundaries and I said I would not live with him if he continued to do what he does. I informed him that he need to get spiritual counseling and guidance, but far and foremost he needs to surrender totally to God. I believe he believes in God, but the emeny has him so totally messed up that he is not strong in the word to fight. I don't want to live like this and I know a separation would be the best solution at this point. I have been totally responsible for the upkeep of this marriage. I feel that I am his enabler and I am a co-dependent. Please pray that I press forward and follow through. He said he would not leave and I would have to have someone put him out of the home.

Uniquelymade, It is difficult and sad to hear or read your post. I wonder do you have a group in your area called Celebrate Recovery? If you do it would be beneficial for you and your spouse to attend. I think you will find that God is in the midst of these meeting and it will be difficult for your spouse to turn away. If he rejects this, which he might, my heart goes out to you. Love in Christ

2/27/2008 20:20

Uniquelymade- First and most important...PRAY for his healing from his addictions. Second...PRAY for a restoration of you marriage...Third... Pray for a change in you as well. I think we all forget that we need a healing in some why, shape or form. You have been STANDING for a long long time and you are a true Christian. So stand on God's word and follow Him and like I said before let go and let God. Your husband is hurting inside and this is how he hides it. I found great comfort in attending church. My wife does not go but I take our daughters every other Sunday. Some day, some day I believe that God will get inside her and speak to her and she will come with us. I never force the issue. Our daughters have asked and I let her explain why she does not go. But God is speaking to her on some level because we ALL pray together at night before I leave the house and she has them pray when I have to work late and miss bed time. God works in ways we do not always see or understand!! Trust me on that. I will keep you and others on the site in my prayers at all times. We will ALL be restored better that we were before.

Alpal-Thank you for you prayers. I hate to read the stories on these pages cause it brings back all my own events in the early stages. I keep pressing forward and know that my marriage is restored/healed & will be better than it was before. I am still STANDING IN FAITH and will until I get back what the enemy took from me and my family.... peace, love and joy (my wife).

2/28/2008 10:03

Please pray for my husband and our family. We have an 18 month old daughter. His co-workers are older without families or responsibilities and they give him a hard time about the expectations on him. They try to make him feel guilty for leaving their after work drinking parties to go home to our daughter and myself. He has told me that he feels like the grass is greener. I know in my heart that for him to leave us would be the biggest mistake, but he's not sure he wants this family life any longer. Please pray for us.

2/28/2008 10:17

sp8 I will pray for you and your journey, and as you journey remember that there is no end to the journey just another chapter and when God has granted the desires of your heart keep on, He will not only restore your marriage he will make it greater than you could imagine. Always take back what the enemy steals but stay open for the next blessing that your Heavenly Father has to offer.God Bless you and your family

reading these makes me want to cry. "In the last days the love of the greater number shall wax cold" The world today is so cold. our media encourages selfishness, and a "do what feels good" mentality. But, Love is not just a feeling, it is a choice that must be made every day. I struggle with this in my own marriage, my husband is a functional alcoholic. He does not help with responsibility for the kids or household finances. He is also verbally mean at times. Although, He says he loves me, his actions say otherwise. Sometimes It just seems like it would be easier without him. I have to keep reminding myself that it is in God's hands. I have to choose to love him unconditionally, and let God work his will. whatever it is. There is a scripture that says if an unbelieving mate chooses to stay that you should live peaceably with them. If they choose to go you are no longer bound. But DO NOT force them to go by your own actions. Trust God and do what is Godly no matter what they do. If christ could die for everyone (including those killing him) without verbally assaulting his persecutors or striking out in hurt in anger. Then we must learn to love that way too, and just take our pain to God. We cannot make someone change or do what we think they should. Only God can change the heart. Don't put our trust in anything but God as we pray for each other to endure and bear our cross.

I ask with all my heart please keep me in your prayers unto God because my heart is hurting and heavy with sadness, despair and a feeling of desolation. Pray for me I humbly beg that God reaches into my life and reunites me and the woman that I love, Debra Ann, my girlfriend/fiancee, and that our relationship and love for each other is restored and strengthened and that she and I both draw closer to one another and that the fire in our hearts is re-ignited brightly where before we permitted worldly lures, temptations and distractions to bring our eyes from off of loving each other and bringing our relationship fully to marriage and a relationship that bestows honor unto God and the blessing that we are to one another, I ask that you pray for me asking that if He will that God speaks to Debra Ann's heart, that He whispers to her and lets her feel and know deep inside of herself, inside of her heart how much I truly love her, how much that I miss her all the way deep into the deepest recesses of my being and my soul, how much I feel like my heart is dying, how much pain there is and how I hurt like all of the color has drained from my life and the fire-light of my heart is dimming out from the seconds, from the days, from the life that I have tried to live absent of Debra Ann and being with her and bringing us into being spouses to one another. I need your prayers urgently. sincerely, Junito

I accept what I have , what I've lost and what havegiven to me

3/3/2008 21:43

God bless all of you; my problems seem so simple compared to all of yours and I think that was Gods will:) My husband is a very angry man; he is constantly yelling and screaming and using language i dont care for around our 2 kids (both young; 3 and 9) he is gone 8 weeks at a time and home for 2 days; things were bad before he got this job now it seems pointless to save it but I just "lost that loving feeling" so I pray to God that my love be restored and that he find God in his heart and believe and try to turn a new leaf and accept and love god and quit being so angry and violent. Lord help us all on this post; We love you with all our hearts, all our mind and all our souls; give us strength Amen:)

Father Yah, in the name of Your Son, Yahuwshua, I lift up every marriage that the enemy has slated for attack. I decree and declare that what You have joined together, let no man or devil put asunder. I speak in faith that all marriages will be restored and the enemy must return 100 fold what he has stolen, the canker worm has eaten, and keep his hands OFF. I claim BACK marriages as representations of Your Son's love for the church and I bless them now with stability, communication, and renewal. In Yahuwshu`a's name, Amein

DIANNE B~In response to what you wrote on 2/26/08: When my husband left me in the summer of 2005, I didn't have a warning either. I know you are very confused, frustrated and hurt right now. My advice to you, is to meditate on God and the things of God. Praise your way through your pain. God will renew your strength and He will give you peace and joy once you enter into His rest.

Father God, I thank You for healing her broken heart, Lord. I thank You for drawing her husband close to You and for leading him back to his wife. I thank You for removing anything within him that is unlike You. May he be the godly man and husband that You placed him on this earth to be. I thank You for comforting Your child. Show her that You will be there with her every step of the way. And that she will get through this. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.


3/5/2008 13:35

UNIQUELYMADE~In response to what you wrote on 2/27/08: Lord, I thank You that she will not make any decisions based off of emotions. I thank You that she will clearly hear what it is that You have to say. There may be a lot of people in her ear saying give up. May she not live to please others or herself--may she live to please You. I thank You for comforting her and strengthening her during this difficult time. May Your Will be done, Lord. I pray for her husband's salvation and deliverance from all things that are not pleasing in Your sight. Soften his heart and open up his eyes, ears, mind and heart to receive Your truth. Send godly people into his life--to remain in his life--to mentor him and minister to him. May he have NO fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. Remove the negative influences in his life. Tear down all strongholds (lies that Satan has embedded in his mind, that he now believes to be truth). I thank You that when he's tempted, You've already provided a way of escape. May he recognize that way of escape clearly and take it immediately. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.


3/5/2008 13:40

ELLEA'SMAMA~In response to what you wrote on 2/28/08: Your husband's mistake is that he's fellowhshipping with the wrong people. He needs to hang around people who are married--godly men who leads their families in the paths of righteousness and truth. Because the longer he hangs around those who are single, he will start wanting and craving the single life. I pray that he will at least be willing to seek godly counseling before he decides to leave for the "greener grass".

Father God, I thank You for sending married godly men into his life, to be an example of how he is supposed to treat his family. May he not abandon his family for the "finer things" or "greener grass". I thank You for drawing him closer to You and I thank You for leading him back to his family. May NO weapon formed against this marriage prosper. I thank You that they will make it a point to pray for and with each other daily. Thank You for being in the midst of their marriage, Lord. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.
