My Husband Needs Jesus
Please pray for my husband to accept the Lord. And for our marriage to be restored to the way it is supposed to be. He's giving us 6 months to see if anything's changed, if it hasn't, it's a divorce. I put him in God's hands. Please pray God will open his eyes to see our marriage will work.

What burdens we carry on our clay backs.I don't like ultimatums either.How is he giving the marriage six months? Nothing worthwhile can be done in six months! He sounds like an evil ol' goat who wants out of the marriage. I would let him out--with a bang!But prayer is good and right. What are you going to do to help the marriage? You are really on the spot now. God bless you dear.My heart goes out to you.

I prayed for my husband for 35 or so years and he was saved two and a half years ago. I will say all during the times I prayed for him, I was not a good example most of the time. I was neither faithful in church because things were always in an upheavel. Thank God he is saved now. Don't quit praying and like Madison said show him thru example. She was right on.

Honey there are so many questions that remain to be answered. Are you born again? Why is he putting all of this on your back? Are you the only one who needs to change? I doubt that. Why six months? You may be better off letting him go on about his business. He has not accepted Christ and he's giving you 6 months. My,my,my. You should be giving him some ultimatums instead of biting your nails over this man. This doesn't sound very good to me. Let go and let God(have his way). He knows best.

I will pray for you. There is a verse in one of the epistles by Peter about the husband being won by the wife who does not use words but her behavior. Pray for God to make you the wife HE wants you to be. That gentle and quiet spirit.

I am praying for you. The longer I am in the walk with the Lord, the more sisters I find in situations so similar to mine. My husband isn't threatening diviorce, my hopes for him to accept Jesus as his Lord & Savior grow dim. We can only pray, pray, pray.

Where are you in all of this? Are you willing to make changes and cry out to Father God, Lord change me? Lord show me the error of my ways and change me Lord. Don't always wait for the other one to change. You change FIRST. Let God do it...ask Him to. Then you can pray for his salvation. Ask the Lord to "soften" his heart. Pray in the Spirit, fast and pray, you can do many things to change.

1 Pet 3:1 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
The Spirit is saying that a wife can win her husband to God without using God's Word, as he watches her humble, reverential conversation with God.

Prov 28:20 A faithful man shall abound with blessings
Prov 8:17 I love them that love me
God gives more to those who truly love Him. Want greater blessings? Obey His greatest commandment.
Mt 22:37 . . . love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
If you love your husband more than God, he becomes God's competitor for your heart. Since God is JEALOUS, is God likely to then bless your husband for having His place in your heart?
