Dear Lord I need you to guide me, for I not sure what even to pray for. There are so many areas of my life that are in need of your help. Lord you know that first and for most is this situation with Rob. I know he has free will, your greatest gift to all. But Lord I also have free will I believe we are stuck because he chooses not to be honest. Lord I have asked for your help with this, I so desire our marriage back, you know this! Rob says he does also, but you see where we still stand. Lord being in this limbo does not make for much happiness, I so wish it to change. Lord you know what is really going on, I pray for your direction, answers, to know what to do. Lord I have prayed in every direction I can think of, ask your help in every way. Please help me! Lord it is difficult when nothing is changing, when Rob choose this or that, and lies about it. Then tries to make light of it. Lord sometimes I really believe in him only to get hurt once again. Lord you know I have never given up on the marriage. That I have prayed that if it is not to be then to totally end it so there is closure, and we both can move on. I have prayed that if its not going to happen bring someone else into my life. I have asked you to comfort my heart and remove the pain, that I may move on. Yet here I still sit in limbo. Lord you know I love this man with all my heart and all my soul..please help ! Help him Lord with his needs, help him ! Lord take the worry and fear from me, from my mind, heart and soul, help me to believe you will take care of this. Lord I to need to be happy, have some fun and enjoy my life. It would be wonderful if Rob were to share that with me.Lord you know what is best here, you know our hearts, our dreams, our needs, please Lord help! In Jesus name we pray Amen!

Lord i pray for For Now and her husband Rob. Lord You know how much she loves him and needs him, and You know that at this moment whatever is going on between them is not right. Father, i ask for You to touch Rob, and to make Him stop hiding things from For Now and to stop hurting her. Convict him Lord if they're are things that he needs to deal with, so that he may deal with them, with You help and be able to love For Now completely and without hindrances. Lord even as ForNow desires this marraige back, Lord, give her that desire, and in doing so, Lord speak to Rob and release him from any bondage that is holding him back from loving her completely. May he be able to give her all the love that she desires and in turn if there is anything on her part that she needs to do, Lord speak to For Now and reveal it to her. Even as she trust's You for Your perfect will, Lord, i know You will not fail her! Answer her Lord and move in their lives for Your Glory! Become the center of their relationship! Or show them what Your will is for their lives! In Jesus Name I pray! AMEN! Sister, i just wanted to share with You a few words that i hope will comfort you and strengthen you. As yourself, i am also dealing with a relationship. In my case, we're still not married and its mostly long distance. But where i identify is in your helpnesses and wanting to know God's will, and what i learn't and i hope it helps you, is that as you allow God to become the center of the relationship, rather than focussing on each other totally, that's when God starts to move and pulls both closer to each other. You may be doing this already, but if not, always remember, God is love, and love is what will bring you too together. I'm not much of a movie fan, but one Christian movie that really touched my heart was FireProof, and i would encourage you two to watch it together. There is a beautiful song on the soundtrack by Warren Barfield from the soundtrack, "Love is not a fight, but its worth fighting for". Ask God to become the love in between you too! Blessings and Prayers, Your Brother in Christ Cecil

Father I know that my sister For Now is confused and hurt by this relationship that seems to be unsure. I thank you Father that there is no uncertainty in your realm. In the heavenlies this problem is solved and I ask that you clarify this for her soon. Father I ask that whatever the plan is that you do a mighty work in Rob. He is toying with this situation and with something that he does not understand and that is the the institution of marriage created by the Almighty God! You made marriage to be holy and pure. It is not a game at the mercy of whatever whim may strike an individual. Convict his heart today Father and bring him to bow down before you and repent. Let him honor his wife as it was meant to be and love her truly as Christ loved the church. Turn his heart from the lies and deceit that was placed there by the evil one and replace it instead with a spirit of purity and honesty. I thank you Father that you hear and answer prayers. In Jesus mighty name I pray. Amen. You just keep standing on your faith honey. God knows what is in your heart. Vicki

Father, I lift For Now to You. Please assure my dearest sister that no matter what her prayers are, as long as she asks for Your Will, You will answer her prayers. My dear sister I can understand how you feel. I have been praying for my Chinese teacher who taught me in Primary Six. I love her because without her I will not be where I am today. I have been praying for her since 2007. I pray that she will recognise our Father in heaven as her Lord and Saviour. I prayed till I cried. I can always hear His voice ringing in my head. That gave me assurance that He is there. I just want to tell you that God hears you. Just say what is in your heart and He is there to listen. Don't give up! Agape Your Sister in the Lord Christiangal

Hi For Now, I've been going through some heavy stuff myself for awhile now too, and I read something today that has helped me to get back on track, and I hope that it will help you as well. Please read the following and try to apply it in your situation daily and watch what happens to you and your situation. God bless you immensely. Thank God for All that is Bad in My Life By Dr. Richard P. Bucher So what are you thankful for? Hopefully many of God’s good gifts and blessings come to mind. Jesus. Forgiveness. Life Eternal. Family. Home. Health. Friends. Job. Possessions. Church. Talents. How bountifully God has been in showering good gifts upon us. God wants us to thank him for all the good in our lives. Every Christian knows this. Did you know, however, that God expects us to thank him also for the bad? Near the end of his first letter to Thessalonians, Paul writes, “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Th 5:18). And in the fifth chapter of his letter to the Ephesians, the apostle exhorts, “Give thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Eph 5:20). Note carefully these words. Christians are to “give thanks in all circumstances (the Greek text can also be translated “in every situation”). They are to “give thanks always and for everything to God.” These passages turn the conventional understanding of thanksgiving on its head. They tell us that our thanks to God is not to be limited to what we consider good. We are to thank him in every situation and for everything, including what we consider to be bad. God expects us to thank him all that is bad in our lives, as well as the good. But what does St. Paul know about such things? Did he actually practice what he preached? He most certainly did. There is a wonderful account in Acts 16 that illustrates this. In the midst of his second missionary journey, while touring the city of Philippi, Paul and Silas were wrongly arrested, stripped naked, savagely beaten with rods, and thrown into inner prison, their feet fastened in stocks. This was a very bad situation for them to be in. In the ancient world one could not count on justice being done. In all probability, death awaited them, or at least a long imprisonment. So what, according to Scripture, did they do? They thanked God. “But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them” (Acts 16:25). Remarkable. They were doubtless in great pain from their beating, as they lay in their dark cell. For all they knew, they would be dead the next morning. And yet, there they are, singing hymns of praise to God. There they are, giving thanks to God in the midst of a very bad situation. So what happened to them? In dramatic fashion, Paul and Silas’s very bad situation was transformed into a very good one. God caused an earthquake to strike the prison, opening all the cells; the jailor, who only hours before had been their tormentor, received Christ and was baptized, he and his family; and the very town officials who had thrown them into jail, apologized and let them go. As he lay there in the prison cell, Paul had every reason to complain and sulk and become very bitter toward God. But instead he chose to thank God for the situation that faced him, no matter who bad it seemed. And God delivered him in a miraculous way. I do not mean to imply that those who thank God for the bad in their lives will always have their bad situation instantly changed for the better. It can happen this way, as it did to Paul. More often, the change that occurs is a change inside us. So what bad circumstances do you face? Bad health? I can relate as I recently ruptured my spleen. Have you experienced loss? I think of the thousands of Christians who have lost everything because of Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, or Wilma. Have you failed in something? Are you stuck in a bad marriage or a bad job? Are you unable to be with the one you love? Are you being persecuted for your faith? Are you lonely? Have you been rejected? Whatever bad situation you are in, God wants you to thank him for it. Why should you do such a crazy thing as this? Because to do so is a powerful statement of faith that tells us God that, no matter how horrible or hopeless the situation you face seems, you trust him. It is a statement of faith that tells God, “Lord, I hate this situation I’m in. I see nothing good about it. It is depressing and frustrating and seems hopeless. But I believe that you are still in control of my life for good. And I believe that you will turn this situation around for good, in your way and in your time. For you have promised to do so (Romans 8:28). I do not feel thankful, but nonetheless, I do and will thank you for this situation and my life exactly the way it is.” By such trust in the midst of suffering, God is greatly pleased. Does such thanking God for the bad actually change anything? Yes, it does. Sometimes it changes the bad situation into good in remarkable and obvious ways. Other times the change takes much longer and is more subtle. Usually the change that occurs is inside of us. When we thank God even for the bad in our lives, our feelings change. We are given peace instead of stress; calm instead of anger; hope instead of hopelessness, joy instead of self-pity. For whatever reason, God’s power is released in the lives of those who trust him enough to thank him even for the bad. Of course, none of us will ever succeed in thanking God the way we should. The devil, world, and our sinful natures constantly fill us with complaining and envy, self-pity and discontent. There is nothing quite like striving to thank God in all circumstances to show us our sinfulness and how much we need the forgiveness that Jesus won on the cross. It is truly good news that Jesus died to atone for our failure to thank and praise God! As God’s forgiven people, let us strive anew to thank God for the bad as well as the good. There is nothing quite like it to show God that you trust in his goodness.
