Prayer Request from Ryan

by Jason Deines

in Prayer and Support

I’m really in deep need of prayer. My wife of 13 years wants a divorce but I dont. I’ve known since 2012 but I’ve tried everything to reconcile with her and nothings worked. I’m not as deep into religion as I should but I’ve prayed and prayed to save my marriage. I need gods arms wrapped around me and my family as we go through this difficult time. I truly love my wife and want us to work it out. I don’t know if I’m praying right or if God just isn’t listening to my prayers. I’m losing faith and have even considered suicide during thus hard time. Please please help

Don’t lose faith, things don’t always work out the way we hope and it can hurt like hell but somehow God works everything out for the better. I learned that God won’t change another person’s heart if they don’t want it changed. If you can talk, groan, etc then you can pray right.

Ryan,

You are most certainly not alone. I am going through the end of a 23 year marriage and my children are abroad. The emotions are normal and deeply painful. I have prayed the same prayers but alas God will never force someone to do anything.

He promises he will never give us more than we can handle and Satan, the great liar, will convince you it is hopeless and bring your torment. IT IS A LIE. I cry at times with great pain and sorrow but I know God has a plan and my test will become a testimony.

Talk it out, cry it out, and persevere. Remember, if you weren’t valuable then Satan would not bother tormenting and discouraging you. I know your pain and am walking a road I never wanted. Find fellowship with friends and church and know that God loves you more than you can imagine.

He says….this too shall pass. It will. And I know because God cannot lie.
