Dearest Lord,
Thank you for Your message of hope and faithfulness that I got at 4 this morning! I believe with all my heart and soul that You Lord will look for the one lost for Peter Lord. Guide him along the path of truth and life. Lead him home Lord. Unite us a family once again but Your will be done, Lord and not mine.
For all who are seeking to do Your holy will Lord - I pray You alone Lord will be their strength and guide and light and hope and peace...just as You have been mine this past year! I praise and thank you Lord of Lords and God almighty. I bless Your most Holy Name. I give You thanks for the many times You have been my strength especially when I felt so weak, like I couldn't move another step.
WWJD369 - please do not hate me for what I am going to say but ask yourself truly - what would Jesus do? God hates divorce and sometimes though we may not be able to see His work in our troubled lives, He is present. He meant for a man and woman to be one in marriage. Let nothing come in the way...not our selfish pride, our self fulfilment, our hopes, our dreams, our intentions, our opinions, our thoughts...God is great and almighty and no matter how you may feel regarding a seemingly one-sided marriage, pray that God alone will bind you and your husband as one. Treasure what you have - no matter how bad things may appear right now, there is good in everyone.
Though my husband has left me and our son to be with someone else and though he has hurt me so much - I love him dearly and it hurts me to know how he must be hurting too in all this. I love him and pray for him daily, not selfishly but unconditionally. It has not been an easy year but so much good and blessings are coming from this...God is so wonderful a counsellor, a healer, a friend...I am learning to be contented in the many little things that I have taken granted's not been easy. I can imagine what you must be feeling right now. Take heart, take courage. I cannot imagine myself forgiving the man I have spent the last 15 years with but the one who has betrayed my love and trust but I have. I forgive him from the bottom of my heart...and it not by my strength. It is God's power and wisdom in my brokeness...He is at work in my life challenging me to love like He did. Oh! How I wish you and everyone here the joy and peace I have knowing that God loves me dearly and that He has started a great work in my husband's life and mine and that He will see it to its completion. I believe we are called to walk by faith and not by sight.
COURAGE-DO NOT BE AFRAID. Go to this website - it has been a god-sent gift and it speaks so much of what I felt in my spirit though everyone around me thinks otherwise. Being a Christian is really being a fool for Christ!
My prayers with everyone. Please pray for Peter and I that we may do the will of God everyday in our lives. God bless.

I badly need prayers. My husband of 7 years left me for 2nd time earlier this year, this time asking for divorce. It hasn't been easy for me but somewhere, with the mercy of God, I have found some treasures, and now I know that this is more about my relationship with God and I have discovered the concept of standing for my marriage. And in that time my husband has been wavering. I now know that on some days he has really wanted a divorce but something has stopped him from actually posting the papers. I believe this has been the result of intercessory prayers. I am wondering how far I have to go before things start going right again. I am now in dire financial straits. I have been left to deal with the mortgage payments, bills and other debts, and it looks like our home will be repossessed. I also no longer have a job. We had been trying for a baby, and have just received a second opinion that my husband will definitely not be able to have children. Well, at least that is one less thing to worry about I convinced myself after the crying. And to be honest I did not want to go down the road of IVF. I had so hoped for a miracle child though to bring us together but that is God's will. Today I came to the realisation that I'm really battling with the enemy. Everytime I have a victory I can tell he's going to attack again. At the weekend my husband and I were very close, you wouldn't think we were a couple about to be divorced. My husband even asked me to pray for him to be protected from satan. And then on Tuesday everything changed and he said divorce papers were ready. They haven't arrived, and I'm wondering what battles are going on in his head. He has lost everything too. It seems he has lost his friends, his job, he is changing residences all the time, and I, too, feel, I have lost everything. Its like a spirit of destruction is very hard at work for both of us. And a spirit of envy that hates it when we get close. Please, I need your prayers. I have been praying for various friends and family, and, praise God, those prayers seem to be answered. If only my own!! I pray for everyone in this circle that almighty God in his mercy and compassion will answer all your prayers, restoring every single marriage, healing every single family. Thank you & God bless. []

Dear innermostheart - I just want to say go to this website - I know you will find strength in God for this difficult journey of faith, hope and trust. Peace to you and your husband. My prayers are with you both.

I havent been on in sometime. I read daily but have been to afraid to write.
Last Sunday my husband and I went out for what I thought was a nice dinner. no isssues talked about and we had a nice early evening. Little did I know that one week early he had filed divorce papers. I receieved them this past Weds. I am broken hearted and our court date is the 15th of this month. He is asking for a divorce with no maintenance support to me only for our daughters. He also claims he could take the girls full time also. Its been a year and I have to stand firm in my beleif that God would not want this for my family. Although its going to happen and I can not stop it. I thought all was possible with God, but maybe God doesnt want this for me for some reason. Maybe I am not good enough for the glory of Gods promises. I do not blame or hold God accountable for this. Nor do I have anger told God. Its just what he has chosen for me and I will meet our maker with such a sin upon my soul that I can not face him.
I pray for all of you and please remember me and my family in your prayers too.
Thank you so much for your words of comfort, there have been many a nights where I looked to this site for inspiration.

Dear Prayer Partners,
I have been married for 13 years, right out of high school. I have 3 beautiful children, but I still don't feel very happy. Please pray for me, because this is affecting my marriage. Please pray that I will be closer to my Lord, and my husband. I know my happiness lies in my relationship with God. Thank you for your prayers.

Hello my fellow family in christ:
First of all I thank god for leading me to this site, because he knows that I just needed to share my prayers with those who are in the same daily walk as I. I have been marrried to my husband 10 out of 17 years. We have 3 children. We have been dealing with his cocaine addiction for many years. True, he has had his periods of sobriety, yet there comes a time when things must come to an end. Satan is definitely putting our marriage to the test. I don't think you have to guess that it is pretty bad financially and emotionally. I don't know about any of you, but sometimes when some family members and friends get involved, things can get really ugly because their first piece of advice is to leave or divorce your spouse. I don't mind telling you that I am god fearing , filledwith the holy ghost and I stand on the pricnciple that god and his kingdom come first. I have learned from past trials that jesus is truly your only friend , he will never leave you nor forsake you. I encourage you all (as i will also) to keep your head up. We all have to suffer for jesus' sake just as he bore our sins on the cross so that we, through his blood have been redeemed. The scripture says that the race is not given to the swift nor strong, but he that endureth to the end. I pray that gods grant us strength, power, and wisdom as we hve to continue in our daily lives even though we go through these fiery trials in our homes. Most of all let us display love and let our lights shine that others may see our good works and that we represent christ. I love you all!

I ran across this website when looking for guidance in my life. I want to add my request for prayers to it, as I know I cannot find my way alone. I have been married for over 7 years with 2 beautiful girls, and it has been very rough for us. Through much loneliness, sickness and fidelity issues we have recently seperated. I ask that God shed some light on our lives. Help me turn this over to him, so he can show me what I need to do. It is hard because I don't feel worthy of his grace, but I realize that I need it. I ask for the strength and your prayers to keep going.

9/8/2003 16:16

9/9/2003 03:27

Dearest Lord
I praise and thank you for your faithful love and I bless Your most Holy Name. Thank you Lord for sending Peter home. Though we are taking one day at a time, though I have many questions, many thoughts and hurts inside, I walk in faith that You Lord will be my healer, you Lord will make us one family again. Lord I lift up to you all on this prayer site and all who have asked for our prayers, especially dwc95r and bones5757, Lord You alone knows what they need at this very moment. Fill them with Your love, Your hope, Your strength, Your wisdom, Your unconditional love. Dear Lord, I continue to lift up Peter to you Lord. Strengthen him each day in the knowledge of Your faithful love and heal his pain and give him wisdom and love in his heart to do Your will, not just for now but for always.

To those who are new, I want to say go to this website - I have and it has been God-sent, truly.

I could wish you a lot of things but I truly and deeply wish you the peace and love of Christ. Shalom.

9/9/2003 20:42

Dear Blessedand BrokenI : are you saying your spouse has returned? Peter is hOme with you and your son? Praise to God in the highest! ALl my prayers and hopes have been restored. Am I reading this correctly. Oh Blessedan dbroken1 God is good and you never lost faith and your words of wisdom to us on this site have been so very very helpful. I am reading your note right?

9/10/2003 02:38

Yes ourlove - he has come home for the last 6 nights in a row. In the first few days I was not sure if I would see him again the next night but he has been home each night and I cannot bless and thank God enough for His faithfulness. There is still so much things unsaid - I am really taking each day at a time, I continue to pray for Peter and I ask all of you to pray with me. He has not once said he still loves me or he is sorry but his actions and his presence is enough. He does not have to say he is sorry to me but I pray he will repent and say sorry to God. God will change him and is changing him, and this I believe will be in His own time, not mine! Praise the Lord!
I am still feeling fragile over many things that the other woman said to me - but like I told her, I feel sorry for her and have been praying for her by name since the first day I found out. Join me as I pray that God will speak to her heart, that He will be her strength to walk away from sin, and that He will lead her along the right path. I pray that she will find true love and never ever experience what I have experienced in my life this past year. May Satan never find a stronghold in her life through lust of another woman's husband. I don't hate her - I seek no evil, no revenge, nothing. I just pray she will leave Peter and our family alone.
Courage ourlove, God will show the way where there seems to be no way. He has been my help, my strength, my refuge, my stronghold...may He be yours today and everyday of your life.
Jesus I love you.

9/10/2003 12:31

I would like to share this poem I received today - it speaks to my heart of how God has been faithfully unfolding His will in my life. May it speak to your heart as well - peace to all.

Unfolding the rosebud

It is only a tiny rosebud
A flower of God's design
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I
God opens this flower so sweetly
When in my hands they fade and die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud
This flower of God's design
Then how can I think I have the wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?

So I'll trust Him for His leading
Each moment of every day
I will look to Him for His guidance
Each step of the pilgrim way

The pathway that lies before me
Only my Heavenly Father knows
I'll trust Him to unfold the moments
Just as He unfolds the rose.

I wish each and everyone of you the peace of Christ and the joy of knowing we have a Saviour who can and will unfold each day of our lives according to His loving and most Holy will. Shalom.

9/10/2003 21:51

Dearest Lord,
I thank you for the past 6 wonderful nights that Peter has been home..why there was no day 7, I do not understand but continue to believe in Your Holy plan and pray for the grace to remain strong in the belief that with You nothing is impossible.
I continue to lift Peter up to you Lord. I know he is fighting lots of things within himself. I also know that this is not the time or Your will that I confront him...I know that in Your own time You Lord will make all things right. I just have to believe with my whole heart and spirit that You are in total control of all that happens to us. Speak to his heart Lord. But also show me how to faithfully and unconditionally love him asking nothing in return. You alone are my strength, my hope, my joy, my everlasting peace. I praise and thank you Lord for the many little and big blessings. I thank you for the short time we had together without fighting..without a thought of past hurts, without a thought of what the future holds. I thank you for being the love of my life Lord. Those nights were a bonus I didn't expect but am grateful for all the same. I love you Jesus. I praise and bless Your holy name. I want to shout from the mountain top that GOD IS GOOD!! All praise be yours O Lord.
I lift up to you the other woman Lord. Protect from the lies of Satan. Shine Your light of truth in her heart that she will not walk in darkness Lord. Show her Your mercy and love.
Lord I continue to lift up all those who are seeking to do Your will in their lives. Grant them Your wisdom, Your strength, Your peace.

I would like to ask all of you to PLEASE pray for my marriage. I have just found out that my husband of 13 years is having an affair. We have 3 beautiful children ages 12,9 and 3. I have had several signs that his was happening. The phone calls the unaccounted for time away from our home including nights and the lack of income coming in. My husband always denied everything, but he made the mistake of calling home from her cell phone and driving her car to my parents home which he said was his friends car. I called the cell # and ran the car plates and they were both to the same woman. He said that he was sorry for acting so strange but that nothing was going on. Everything improved and was back to normal, until this past monday when his car was not running and I drove him to work. I dropped him off and was on my way home when something told me to go back, well I was just in time to see the woman in the car he had driven before pulling up in front of his job where he was waiting for her. So he really was not going to work, I guess he had called in. When he saw me pull up infront of them he turned a pale white and the woman pulled out in reverse as fast as she could. I confronted him and told him to get in the car after a few seconds of saying he had to go to work and noticeing that his co workers were watching he got in the car and I drove off after the women who was going as fast as she could. I really dont know what I was going tell her but I was so upset that I was not thinking straight. I realized that I was acting crazy and finally we drove home. He said that he was sorry and that he was stupid and that he did not want to loose us and promised that it would never happen again. I dont want to to say that I am staying with him because of the children because I love my husband very much, but after days and nights of agonizing pain I have realized that the only people that would be getting a bad deal are my children. I am an adult and can be strong and move on, but what about them, could I live with myself knowing that if I left their father I would cause great and maybe unrepairable pain that they would have to live with for the rest of their lives. My children love their father very much and I dont think that they would be strong enough to go through this. I have been praying to God to please show me what should I do. Walk through life like a zombie and pretend that everything is ok or hurt the people that I love most in this world. Please pray for me so that I can take the correct path. Any and all advise is welcomed via email. Thank you all and may god bless you.

To waitingtomeetmine, please I say to you - let go and let God. Please go to this website - it has been a gift from the Lord to me - I cannot to begin to tell you what the books and tapes have done for me. God has spoken through the materials when all others in my life had said - leave your husband. I believed then as I believe now - GOD HATES DIVORCE. Dear waitingtomeetmine, Our God is a faithful and loving God. He will never abandon us no matter what our situation is, no matter how bad things may appear.

Grant her light for her path, love in her heart and peace and joy in Your presence.

9/12/2003 17:47

Praise the Lord Everyone,
I just want to send a word of encouragement to all of you wonderful people who have been holding on to God and believing Him for your breakthrough... Often times in life we are faced with difficult uncertainties and we don't always know the best thing to do.. However, we have a friend in Jesus who loves us and cares about us.. The word of God tells us that "He is concerned about the things that we are concerned about".. In Heb.4:15, It says that "For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 4:16; "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in the time of need.." God can do anything but fail, and He knows how we feel, He knows the pain that we are bearing, but He will never put more on us than we can bear... Please all, be encourage in the Lord, and know that God has not forgotten, He will do what He has promised He would do... I will continue to pray for all of you and for families across the globe because family is ordained and instituted by God, that is why, the enemy fights us so, for his desire is to destroy the family unit that he may destroy our future.(Our children) But, God has promised that the blessing is not only unto us, but unto our seed, and our seed's..seed and to all those that are afar off... God is with us, and He is working for us right now.. Be encouraged and may God bless each and everyone of you, In Jesus name.. Amen...

9/12/2003 20:59

Lord, please give my wife, Grace, the courage to open her mind to the possibility of reconciliation. Please fill her heart with love and understanding and giver her the strength to stand up to the evil that has clouded her judgement.

9/13/2003 00:42

Dear Blessedandbroken1: I signed on tonight with all hopes of hearing from you. You have been in my prayers since the other day when I read your first news. 6 wonderful nights of no fighting, no stress, what a glorious feeling that has left you with. Funny on the seventh there was nothing. Is it possible Peter needed a rest on the seventh day, to think and really learn what he his doing to his family and himself? I think so. God is working with Peter, for he could never have made that first step. I said first step, b/c I beleive it is the beginning of many for you. God is glorious and he has heard your prayers. God has heard you so many times offer advice to those of us who have been so lost with no where to go and there you are with your loving words and prayers. May God bless you and yours always.

As for my situation, today Greg had the chance to cancle our court date on this upcoming Monday. I begged, our daughters begged. we are going to court. I never thought I would reach such a low point of death in my life as I have today. I know God is listening, I know God hates divorce, what I dont know is why this has gone this far. I asked Greg to return home tonight for me, yes I was selfish and want him home, as you can see he is not coming home. He said he has not given up but cant come home. He loves our family and the family life we have and doing things together as the four of us but what happens when our girls are gone. I said lets worry abaout today step by step day by day and it meant nothing.
My dear partners: PLease pray for me this weekend and Mond that God is able to reach Greg's heart before its too late. Death is at my door and I do not know how to send it away.

9/13/2003 08:47

Dear Ourlove, You and Greg are in my heart and prayers. I know how difficult it can be when one wants to stay and one wants to leave. Please don't give up nor be discouraged. Greg has a free will and if he chooses to disobey God and break his marriage vow with you, you are NOT held accountable nor sinning. He is the one who has sinned against you and God. Pray for his repentence and that he will return to God and your family and most of all, you. It is at times like this I claim all the scripture promises like Jeremiah 29:11-14 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to give you to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future..." I can relate to your pain even though the situation was the reverse to a certain point. I had wanted to leave my husband even after marriage counseling because I felt our marriage was one-sided. But I knew what Scripture said about divorce and that I could not leave him unless he left me first or if he was unfaithful (which he was once but I forgave him). I would also ask God to not allow the root of bitterness and unforgiveness to manifest in your heart because of what you are going through. Life and loving a person are never easy, but if we remain faithful in praying for that other person, God honors that and He will work things out. It may take time, but be patient. It will be worth it in the end... I hope this helps you in some way and provides comfort to you because I struggle with my wording of my thoughts at times... God bless and I care about you even though I don't know you personally.

9/13/2003 08:54

To BlessedandBroken1: Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I wanted to thank you for your referral to the restorem website, it was very helpful to me too. Thanks to EVERYONE who has been praying for us! there's power in prayer and strength in numbers. Let's give Satan a BLACK EYE and claim the victory that was won for us by Jesus' death and resurrection! We are overcomers, we must not go around acting "defeated" nor thinking that way. He said we would have trial and tribulations but we WILL OVERCOME! Praise to the Lamb that was slain!

9/15/2003 01:43

As GOD as my will and my faith that i hope all the marriages stay together and most of all those that truely believe and trust in our.GOD that it will work out for all that believe. love you all.GOD bless
