Jesus, I have been in this boat before. I know that I am controlling at times with my husband and that this drives him away. I ask Jesus that you please help me to communicate in love always to my husband. Help me to reach out to you and have faith that you will heal our hearts and our marriage. Please comfort me as my husband pushes away. Please bring me the words to communicate and tell me when to communicate. Help me to react lovingly to my husband. I ask that you draw close to my husband and help him to embrace you completely. Please turn his heart of ice into flesh and help him to again become a practicing Christian. Please help him to develop Christian relationships and give him accountability in his life. I know Jesus that everything happens in your time. Help me to be patient and please help my faith to endure during this period. I am hurting Jesus, and I know you are the only one that can fix me and my marriage. I pray that you place a hedge around my marriage, around my heart, around my husband's heart, and around our children. Please Jesus make our home a place where you live. I pray that Godly activities and prayer begin in our home. Help my husband to see you clearly. I pray that he will guide our family spiritually. Help me to listen to you and have a quiet spirit. Help me to witness to my husband by my actions. Help me to be thoughtful, kind, and not rude. Help me to give my husband his space and help me to have the faith to know that you are drawing near to him. I ask that you never give up on us! Please Jesus, please be our rock. Help us to build our foundation on you. I ask that you temper my anger and sadness. Heal my emotional wounds. Help me to hear you and respond to you always. Please give me the motivation to read your Word each day so I can build my faith and knowledge of you. I love you for being my Savior. Please show my husband a way back to you. In Your Name I Pray, Amen.

Father, heal her heart, bring her contentment and rest. Give us all the right words to pray for her in the ways we can be of help and service. I plead the Blood of Jesus over this prayer. Amen

Grace and peace, Mrsmy!
About 16 years ago I prayed, "Lord change me into the wife my husband needs." You know what just came to mind was the children of Israel in the wilderness. God was with them all the time...and when it was time to take the land which God had given them, they balked and said, there's giants in the land! So they stayed in the wilderness for more years. God never left them, He was their constant companion but they would not listen to the command, go take the land and so they suffered and in their suffering they complained and grumbled...why is God allowing this to happen. God isn't letting this happen; they were. They were given directions, but because it was difficult and fear was great, they stayed until they finally decided to trust God.
I believe, we, as believers, born again, new creations, are still wandering in the wilderness because we have not taken God at His word. What does He say about you and your husband? Loved! Righteous! Beloved! Blessed! yet we continue to fight against the truth. What do you say about your husband? See him the way Jesus sees him. A believer full of the goodness and grace of God! When you see him that way (even if he isn't acting that way) your response to him will be different, it will be loving. Believe me I know, it works!
We are new creatures in Christ, but many are still wandering in the wilderness because it is hard to fight the negatives in life. It's hard to believe that what God says about us is true because for so long we've been told differently. Words are powerful, they create your environment. If we get up in the morning, thinking, "oh my God, another depressing day"...and then we speak it out of our mouth, more than likely our day will not be a blessed one because we bypass the blessing by speaking contrary to the word of God. We defeat ourselves and the victory that Christ won for us by speaking contrary to the word of God. We bypass so many blessings because we find it difficult to believe anything good about us or that God thinks anything good about us. Oh my God, I cussed! Lord forgive me and throughout the day we are repeatedly saying Lord, forgive me. That is condemnation and it comes from the accuser!
Mrsmy, look at your husband through the eyes of love, God's love. How does God see your husband? As a sinner that needs to be saved? You said he is saved...so he's already saved! I believe you both need to understand the new birth and what Jesus has done for you, for him. You struggle with control issues, hand them to Holy Spirit and let Him help you. Lord, baptize mrsmy and her husband with the Holy Spirit and power! Fire them up to serve you in love and grace poured out! Heaven is open to you, mrsmy! It's not closed! God is not mad at you! God is not mad at your husband! See yourself in Christ. Crucified with Christ, dead, buried and risen again with Christ Jesus. Anointed, blessed, greatly favored, deeply loved...that's who you are in Christ. You and your husband are the ones whom Jesus loves. Get out of the wilderness and take the promise land of blessings, grace abundant and freedom in Christ! IN Jesus name. Amen!

Jesus, Thank you for helping me find this site. Thank you for the prayers you have received for my marriage and my husband Daniel. Thank you Jesus for your healing and peace. Thank you for my church home group that is so supportive and non-judgmental. I pray Jesus that you give me the strength to endure this storm. Help me to continue to be humbled before Your throne allowing me to allow you to work in me. Please Jesus, reveal your plan to me. Help me to be anxiety free. Help me to say only what needs to be said. Take away my heartache and sadness. Help me to focus on you and all that you are. Thank you Jesus for blessing Daniel and I have in our beautiful children. I pray that we both can be living examples of You. Please show me Your will. Change my heart to want what you what. Bind the enemy from Daniel's life. Allow him to see your truth and accept it. Stop the drinking, the smoking, and the disrespect Daniel displays in his life. Stop my husband from seeking attention from other women. Destroy any relationships he may have created and bring his heart home. Help him to cope with his demons. Protect him Jesus; place a hedge around Daniel, my children, and our marriage. Help us to defend spiritual attacks and help my heart to stay soft and humble. Help me to stay the course and keep my faith in You. I know you want to draw me close. Here I am God!!! Use me, love me, comfort me, please don't ever leave me. Show Daniel that the life in You is so much better than the life he is living. Please Jesus shake him loose of the binds this world has on him. Please be with him in this time and always. May I be a wife that you are proud of. Thank you for being my Abba, my daddy. I love you Lord. In Your Name I Pray, Amen

Jesus, I praise Your Holy Name! Thank you for giving me the strength thus far to continue. Its hard sometimes when I see my husband not wanting to strive for you, but thank you for showing me that You are in charge. Help me as I go to counseling tonight. Help me to see my negative attributes and to make positive changes. Help me to continue to be a light for you in my marriage. Please give my husband a heart for you again. Help him to want ALL OF YOU! Help me to be a strong witness with a humbled and quiet spirit. I love you. Thank you for Your power and love. Thank you for your redemption. Please redeem my relationship with my husband and fill us both with your spirit. Thank you for giving me the motivation to read my bible. I know my faith will grow as I enter your Word. Please continue to hold me and never let me go. Help me to feel your presence always. Please change Daniel's heart and humble him too. Help him to realize You are the only thing worth living for. I know that if he turns to you, he will begin to change his life and feel more fulfilled. Thank you for your living water. Help me not to thirst for this world and always strive after you. In Your Name I Pray, Amen.
