How Can I Save My Marriage

How can I save my marriage? I believe that God showed me who he was. We have been married for almost 4 years. He says that he doesn't want to be married anymore. What can I do? I know that I need to be patient. I pray and I am fasting. Is there something I can say in my prayers?

My dad and mom went threw a similar ordeal. Mom accepted Jesus 20 years before dad did. She prayed every night but, he never really committed himself until he was on his death bed. The day before he died he accepted Jesus and renounced his catholic faith. It was very difficult on both mom and dad but in the end his souls was worth the Prayers and love. Keep the faith love & honor your husband the way Christ loved the church, It was through his love the people finally came to believe he is God

Hi. I am very sorry for what you are experiencing right now. If you would like to maintain the relationship until death, I recommend that you give everything and ask for nothing. Act as if you were being paid to be his servant. DON'T BE JEALOUS! or at least don't show it. Just give it all, ask for nothing. If you have love for him, it won't be that difficult. remember men in the bible had in some cases more than one wife. and be silent! an argument requires two speaking. just serve him.

"Kimberley ::I am sure that God did not send him."

the bible states that he who finds a wife,finds a good thing. you werent the one to be your husband saved?if not the wife santifies the unbelieving husband,but if he doesnt want to stay married he can leave.the bible states how can two walk together unless they agree.these are things you should think on.i pray that he is willing to try and make the marriage work. do your part continue to fast and pray and be obedient to how a wife should treat her husband.but thats all you can do.. amen

The most effective way to pray is to pray the Word. In 1John 5:14-15 it says, "...if we ask(demand or petiton) anything according to His will He hears us." His will is His word.

Get your bible out when you pray. Find scriptures on the subject you're praying for. Then pray them.

Ex. Father Your word said, " Whom you've joined together no man shall put assunder so Father heal my marriage.(Matthew 19:6) Give me the wisdom I need to work out this marriage.(James 1:5) I thank You because this is but a light thing to You. Nothing is too hard for You.(Genesis 18:14; Jeremiah 32:17)

Kimberly...God can and DOES restore marriages. Continue in prayer and fasting until God answers your prayers. Remember! He's an on time God! Not our time, but HIS time.

Kimberly, You can drive yourself crazy with this. It seems so simple to say turn it over to the Lord, but that is all you can do. There are no magic words in prayer. But I'm sure you already know that. If he is determined that he wants out you cannot hold him. I have been in your situation but mine was after a 19 year marriage. I am alone but I have a Holy Father that looks after me. The only thing you can do now is pray and work on your relationship with the Lord. You have no control over your husband.

Kimberley ::I am sure that God did not send him .We make choices BECAUSE we cannot see the outcome.Your prayers to the Arbitrator will not bring him back cause of his free will.I dont know if Children are involved but they are your responsibility as he has absconded.If you have supportive family they are your best bet.Time heals pain & Jesus will help you bear that.In your prayers say a word of thanks & ask him to help you see your way through this ordeal.He will give you solace & sanity.

Kimberly, This is difficult I know. You are wise to fast and pray as we are to seek God in all things. As for what to pray, pray the Word as God leads...a critical part of prayer is listening to the Spririt, and as you do that you'll have peace and joy no matter what the circumstances. I disagree with if we prayed enough etc the other person will change. They have free will. But you inprayer can be changed and know God will walk you through the fire.

Pray without ceasing, I will be praying with you, be strong God is in control. Be Blessed Always.

Kimberley, prayers are good but you should seek some professional councelling right away. Don't let things deteriorate.

Love your husband with all your heart, and pray to God as you have never prayed before. I'll pray for you too. What are your husbands reasons for wanting a divorce?
---Climacus_Redivius on 1/22/07

Trust the Lord for your time right now. Ask Him to make you the wife He wants you to be, and to help you accept whatever happens. You must trust Him completely.

It's unfortunate, but we have to expect nothing less than a roller coaster ride when trying to do anything well in this "life."

The thing to do is stubbornly trust Jesus that he's there with you through it all.

Some people say 'I tried that and it didn't change anything' and I say to them it's because you stopped or never trusted him enough. Romans 8:28
God sets things right in time, ours is to trust.
