My husband and I have been in a very stressfull situation for years. It seemed all better by mid 2009 and all most of 2010 till now. He cheated on me in 2006 and I haven't been able to forgive him. I know God was there for me when my husband and I nearly went through a divorce in 2008 he kept me strong and had people come to my aid to keep me strong. I don't have anyone now, and we are the verge of divorce again. I am unable to forgive him, I want to forgive him and I pray to God to change me to try and make me a better wife to be able to understand him, to make me less angry and jealous, to understand that if he is still with me it is because he has changed and loves me. We have two children and he is currently away on deployment, two days before my birthday on the 11th of this month, he asked me to think about and look for ways to go about a divorce. I don't know what to do, all I know is that I don't want this divorce to go through. I don't have many friends where I live and don't know who can pray for me. So I sought out you all to pray for me. To pray that I am a better wife, more understanding less angry, to pray that my husband realizes that the kids and I need him that he will have a change of heart. Most of all I pray and want nothing more than his saftey while he is away. He has friends who are seperated who I feel are making him feel like he should be seperated as well, I pray that these people are removed from his life so that he can have clarity. Please help, I want to be a better wife for him and be able to save our marriage, I want to be able to say I forgive you and mean it. Please help me, thank you. I know God listens and that in order for good things to happen people have to wait. I know I have to wait it just kills me to have my husband ask time and time again about me figuring things out for a divorce that I do not want. I told him that if he wanted it that he could figure it out because I just don't have a clear mind. I am trying to find a job in the midst of all of this because I feel maybe he needs me to be more independant, but with this economy it has been hard for me to find a job after being a stay at home mom for five years. Please pray for me, and keep me in your thoughts. I have faith that we will all recieve good things.
I pray that you protect this marriage. I ask that you bring healing and comfort. Help this wife to forgive her husband and help this husband to want his wife anf family. I ask that they can grow in You and together. Help them to make you the center of their marriage. Bring hope back into thier lives. In Your Name I Pray,
I will be praying for you Savingourlove. My marriage has had many ups and downs too and we have been on the brink of divorce a couple of times. God is faithful and wants to bear this burden for you. Jessu said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 28-30. Really I have found peace in our Lord. Knowing that he should be my first priority in life has helped me to see what the Lord wants for my life. I know that I can only change me and that the Lord will work on my husband's heart in time. I have allowed our struggles to refine me and change me. I am so much better for it. I actually rejoice in my sufferings because they draw mw near to our Lord. Another verse I love and was just sent to me today is Romans 5:3-5 "More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us". I think this applies to my life and really yours too. Hang in there. If you stay faithful the Lord will bless you. He works all things for good for those who are in Him!!! Take care.
One more verse for you...
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
But he said to me, "My gace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, them I am content with weakness, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Well last week I found out my husband has been seeing another woman, a woman in the Army. The only thing that is good about this is that this girl is not on deployment with him, she is in town but will be leaving to California in the next few months. I am very upset, my husband keeps telling me to file for divorce papers, but I do not want to go do this. I do not want my children to blame me for what is happening. I think he is very confused, and doesn't know what he is talking about and what he really is feeling. I feel he is confused because of this girl in his life. I want to seek out prayer that this temptation is vanished from his life and realizes that his wife and children love him very much. Lord please let the Holy Spirit come into my husband's life and show him the light. Whatever is done in dark will always comes to light thus how I found out about this other woman. Please keep me and my children in our thoughts. Thank you so much for your parayers.
My thoughts are with you savingourlove. Wow what a hard situation. My husband is also in the military and has been unfaithful. It is a hard long road to walk, but I can say with complete confident, do what you feel the Lord is leading you to do. If you feel that He is instructing you to wait...wait on Him. Do not be pressed to file for divorce from anyone. The Lord will provide a way for you to get through this...even though it hurts so badly. I understand completely. All I can say that in my own life, the Lord has told me to wait on Him. My husband step out on me emotionally with a VERY young woman in February while he was away at training. I called him out on it and he became distant and bitter towards me. He deployed in July and has been oversees every since. He is Facebook friends with this girl and it does hurt, but I have been faithful to my Lord and have been trying with all my might to follow Him. I read His word daily, with brings my faith and hope. "Faith comes by hearing and hearing comes by the Word of God". In the past couple of weeks the Lord has blessed me with good communication with my husband. He even apologized for being "the way that he has been" and told me he didn't mean to take anything out on me. I see the Lord working in our marriage and in his life and know that sometimes to humble a person (or husband in our cases) the Lord knocks them down a few pegs so they have no where to look but up. I have been reading through the book of Isaiah each night and have found some common themes. First the Lord chases after those who have strayed and are His children. Two, when His children stray, He knocks them down, humbles their hearts, and waits for their return to Him. It happens over and over throughout the book. This has helped me to see why by husband has been going through trials and issues while deployed. I pray that the Lord places your husband back on track and that he can submit to the will of God and become a Godly man. If you feel you are to wait and not divorce your husband, know that it will be painful and hard to wait on God. Use the pain you experience to draw close to your creator. It has blessed my in so many more ways that I even know. I have developed a intimate relationship with my Lord and my faith has grown leaps and bounds. I am also experiencing joy and feel so fulfilled despite the fact that my husband prefers to flirt with other women at times. I have given all my burdens to the Lord because he has instructed me to. I hope my story inspires you to draw near to the Lord and trust that His plan for your life is the best one. Hang in there!!! I know it hurts and your world feels like it is crashing down. Center your thoughts and life around Jesus and you will get through this and be blessed because of your faithfulness.
Touch this marriage. I ask that this husband repent and turn from his adulterous relationship. Please destroy this unGodly union he has created and bring him back to his children and wife. I ask that you allow him to submit to Your perfect will for his life. I ask that you convict his heart and please wash his soul with your healing water. Please give this wife strength in her weakness. Help her to draw close to You in this time of pain and need. I ask that you please give her hope and allow her to give you all her burdens and troubles. Fill her cup so it overflows. Give her your gifts of the spirit. I ask that you especially grant her patience, kindness, love, joy, and happiness. Jesus, bless this family and protect this marriage. I ask that your blood cover this marriage and household completely. Again, please destroy the adulterous marriage. I ask that you bring healing and reconnection in this family.
In Your Name I Pray,

Thank you for all for your prayers. I am lost today I am trying to stay so strong, but my husband emailed me a few minutes ago to say that he still wants me or us to fill out the divorce papers and find divorce papers. He is putting ideas as to what we should do, that before he comes back from his mission that I and the kids should be already back with my parents. Please keep prayers going, I want our marriage to work, and I would like all those nay sayers in his life to be pushed away from his life. I am trying to keep strong, I am trying and I am trying to forgive him and let all resentment be freed from my heart. I sometimes feel it is too late, but I want to keep the faith, and keep and fight for my marriage.
Dear God please provide this angel strength to endure her ordeal. I pray that God will lead her to the right path. Dear father break these chains that evil is creating in her marriage. Please fill the husband's heart with your love and open his eyes to see and desire the love of his wife and family.
