~**MARRIAGE**~I NEED PRAYERS >>PLEASE!!!


I need strength for my marriage. I have gained a few pounds and my husband no longer finds me attractive.

Pray for me please not to become depressed. I am 5'4" and 180 pounds I have recently gained this weight after quitting smoking. My husband no longer finds me attractive and has told me so. I don't have a lot of self worth right now and I'm scared.

Dear Kim,
I am 5ft 6in ,35 yrs(6/28)200lbs and my husband of 16 yrs has told that he has warned me for all of these yrs and that is enough! Our son is 17 yrs old and will be going to college this coming summer, and I am Better than Blessed to see that coming !!!!! I have learned that God has children that Are the Head and not the tail!!!!! as so many sinners think (my husband). So I pray for you And I and ALL other wives And girlfreinds that have this feeling that God will remind us of who we are in him no matter What! God is the Only man that I can Truly Depend NEVER to fail me!!! So Look up And Live with a Smile!!

Dearest and Most Heavenly, Wonderful God, I offer this prayer for Kim and understand how she feels. I praise her giving up a terrible habit and ask that you bless her with strength and may she find comfort in your love for her. I also pray that you help her husband recognize what a difficult thing she has accomplished and love and help her rather than turn away from her. I asked this in the name of our Lord and Savior, your Son, Jesus Christ.

KIM,
I TOO AM IN THE SAME BOAT HERE - I WAS THIN WHEN I GOT MARRIED - ONLY HAVE HAD ONE MISCARRIAGE AND 3 CHILDREN.
I TOLD MY MOTHER-IN-LAW ONE YEAR THAT
I WAS GOING TO LEAVE HER SON AS HE WOULD COME HOME AND TALK ABOUT THESE COLLEGE GIRLS AND HOW HIM AND HIS MANANGER WOULD RIDE AROUND LOOKING AT THEM IN THE SUMMER TIME.
I THOUGHT WELL, IF THATS THE WAY ITS
GOING I DON'T NEED YOU.
HE STILL HAS A PROBLEM TO THIS DAY
WITH MY WEIGHT AND CAN'T SEEM TO GET PASS IT - AND IT DOES LOWER YOUR SELF-ESTEEM.
BUT HANG IN THERE WITH PRAYER AND THE LORD BY YOUR SIDE YOU CAN MAKE IT!!!
MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOUR HUSBAND,MINE,AND MANY MORE OUT THERE WHO SEEM TO FORGET WHY THEY MARRIED THE PERSON IN THE FIRST PLACE.
MY HUSBAND WAS BURNED 80 PERCENT OF
HIS BODY AND ALMOST DIED AT THE AGE OF 33 - WHICH NOW HE IS 47!!!!
HE WOULD ALWAYS ASK ME **HOW CAN YOU LOVE SOMEONE WHO LOOKS LIKE THIS** - MY REPLY WAS **IF YOU CAN BE THE PERSON WHO I MARRIED - THE ONE WHO LAUGHED AND SEEMED SO IN LOVE WHAT IS ON THE OUTSIDE DOESN'T COUNT - I LOOK TO THE INSIDE!!!:):)
YES, I WALKED DOWN THE STREET WITH
HIM IN A PRESSURE SUIT FROM HEAD TO TOE AND MANAGED TO GET HIM TO WEAR A TANK-TOP AND SHORTS WHEN IT WAS SO HOT OUT!!
ALWAYS REMINDED HIM ALSO OF THE ONES
IN WHEEL-CHAIRS - THAT MAYBE THEY CAN'T TALK TO YOU BUT THEY STILL HAVE FEELINGS!!!
SO HANG IN THERE - GOD IS AT YOUR
SIDE AND IF YOU FEEL THE NEED TAKE AN EMPTY CHAIR AND FEEL THE PRESENTS OF THE LORD AND TALK WITH HIM ABOUT THIS - HE IS RIGHT THERE ALWAYS FOR YOU!!!
GOD,I COME TO YOU THRU YOUR SON JESUS
CHRIST TO BE WITH KIM,MYSELF,AND MANY MORE OUT THERE THAT THEIR HUSBANDS WILL OPEN THEIR EYES AND SEE THE BEAUTY IN THE ONE THEY HAVE MARRIED.
PLEASE HELP US ALSO THAT STUGGLE TO
LOSE THE WEIGHT - NOT JUST FOR OUR HUSBANDS BUT FOR HEALTH AND SELF-ESTEEM GIVE US STRENGTH THRU YOU TO COME FORWARD AND GIVE IT ALL UP TO YOU THAT WITH YOUR HELP WE WILL COME THRU IT ALL!! IN YOUR SON JESUS CHRIST NAME I PRAY AMEN.
KEEP YOUR HEAD UP GIRL - YOU CAN DO IT!! I SURE PLAN TO WITH THE LORDS HELP!!!:):):)
LOVE IN CHRIST

Kim,
I understand your pain all too well. Be strong and know that your heart is what is important. Not your physical appearance. Find value in your other strengths -- like compassion and kindness. I pray that you find the strength to know your true worth and find what makes you happy.

Good Father, great spirit, giver of all life, i ask a prayer of good hope and faith for Kim. She has quit smoking, a very hard habit to break; i ask for your blessing on her so that she will know that she is worth so much more than the worry of the weight she has gained...i, myself have gained weight too, so i understand the frustration...please give her strength beyond what she can even imagine to rise above the cruel comments and to achieve her personal goals...i ask in Jesus name, Amen.

Hi Kim, My name is Nellie. I know how you feel about your weight. When I met my husband I was 120 pds. Im 182 pds now. Thank God my husband still loves me but for awhile I thought that he didnt love me anymore because of my wieght. We did so much more together, when I was thin. He really didnt look at me the same way. I didnt have much confidence in myself. I couldnt even look into amirror without shaking my head in disgust. Guess what I did. I turned to God. I asked him to help my husband find the love, I felt he had lost for me. Guess what? Im still 182, and I think my husband loves me more now than ever before. I asked for confidence and to be able to love myself the way I use to. Well I know that I need to lose wieght but I also know that I love myself. Im sure your husband still loves you. He wouldnt have married you if he didnt love you. What you need to do Is help him bring out that love. Its in there. Do things to make him want you. Just because your 180 doesnt mean your unattractive, doesnt mean your not sexy. Im 44 years old and I know that Im very attractive and sexy. Anyway Kim, Im praying for you and your husband. Trust me I know exactly how you feel. Im going to ask God to give to you and your husband what he gave to me and mine, Love and happiness. God Bless you Kim, and dont give up hope. God is listening.
Nellie

Dear Kim -
I pray for strength for you, and for the Lord to open your husbands eyes and soften his heart.
And yes, Love Yourself. You are precious in His sight.
I also recommend to rent the movie "Shallow Hal" and watch it with your husband. Its inspirational, funny and an eye opener. It may help to get a message through to him.

Dear Kim ~

I pray as I light this candle for you that you will obtain the strength that you need to find a way to regain your self esteem, and to lose weight for "Yourself" so that you will be happier and healthier. I too have experienced the pain of being overweight in the past ~ A very deep pain ~ I know, and remember, it well. I also hope that your husband will see the "Light" before it is too late. Unfortunately, too often marriages are damaged by the other party not making an effort. That I have experienced as well. If you read this, and see it in your heart, please remember me in your prayers as well as I am going through a very difficult time myself for other reasons. If not, I still ask that your prayers may be answered very soon. God bless you, and help you. Amen.

Kim, this may not be easy for you to hear, but if your husband is so superficial as to feel that way about you and tell you such a heartbreaking thing, perhaps he is not worthy of you after all. You may be better off with a man who loves you for you, not just what you look like. Blessed Be, Kim.

In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, please let Kim know in her heart that she is very, truly loved by her creator. And abundant thanks for giving Kim the grace to quit smoking. I ask, in Jesus name, to heal her husband and give him the compassion and grace to be a supportive life partner. Let him know, Lord how his selfishness has hurt his wife and that he needs to ask for forgiveness and pray for God's grace in both their lives. I love you Kim and my heart and prayers go to our Lord for you

Dear Kim, I understand just how hard it is to stop smoking and I also understand what you are going threw with your husband. I also have simular problems with smoking and my husband. We are only human, but we are a child of Our Heavenly Father. No matter what we go threw Jesus understands. Give it all to him and leave it with him. Jesus sees your heart, be faithful to him and he will be faithful to you. Dear Father in Heaven I pray for Kim. I pray Lord Jesus that you help Kim threw this trying time she is going threw with her husband. I pray Father that you give Kim the strength she needs to get threw this and at the same time I pray for her husband. I pray Father that you open Kim's husbands eyes and heart that he will see what an amazing this Kim has done by stop smoking and how hard it is to do such a think that has a hold on us. Father I pray that her husband will open his heart and look at Kim in a whole new way and I also pray Holy Spirit that you speak to this husbands heart and let him see the truth in you. Rekindle this marrage and make it the way it should be accourding to your will. I thank you Father God and I pray for all these things in Jesus' prsious holy name, Amen

In life God only wants the best for us. I know that your husband has hurt you and let you down. God sees you as the beautiful creature he has created. Yes, excess weight is not good for you, but a downright, unsupportive, callous, uncaring husband is not. A man should love you no matter what. It sounds to me, that while you love him, you deserve better. You cannot look to him for your self-worth, only you can look to yourself. You need to love yourself. You are beautiful. The average woman is 5'4 and wears a size 12 or 14. One of the things that is helping me is realizing that I am not meant to fit into anyone's fantasy. What matters is that I am fit and feel good about myself. Do activities you like. When your husband says dispariging comments, take a brisk walk. Think of exercise as spending time with yourself and giving yourself the love that you need. Kudos on giving up smoking. Let me tell you, grapes are an excellent snack food. The next time your husband says something mean, say, "I may not look the way you want me to look but I am here and I think I look good. You took marriage vows for better or worse, sickness and in health. It wouldn't hurt if you worked off your pounds too. Or be honest, say, that comment really hurts and I don't deserve to be talked to and disrepected like you are disrespecting me. The following is my prayer for you.

Dear Lord,
I ask that you heal this woman's pain. Give her peace Lord. work on her husband's heart. Lord bless her with a thick skin. I ask that you give her strength, courage and peace. God help this woman realize that you have created her in your own image. If it is your will keep this marriage together. If it is not, bless Kim with the ability to pick up the pieces and move on to someone that will treat her like the queen she is. Bless Kim to realize how important and valued she is by friends and family despite what her husband sees and how he feels. Lord I thank you for delivering her Lord and healing her pain. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

Kim, my only advise is that you realize that your marriage should not be for looks. if he doesn't find you attractive anymore, maybe you shouldn't be so hard on yourself. raise him to your level. it's much easier on both of you.
