This is a difficult concept to accept. I can do nothing to win this battle, other than stand, trust, and pray. I can ask others to pray with me, and that is what I have been doing.
I need protection from the temptation to try to fix or condemn this situation myself. Ask God to give me strength in Christ to be humble, kind, welcoming, and caring. Guard my tongue that no wrong or unclean thing may pass my lips to my wife, my children, my family etc. May God judge this. (II Timothy 2:25-26). I need prayer that in all of this I will draw near to Christ and him to me. I need prayer that my wife would not be my god or at the center of my life and thoughts every moment. Fix my eyes on him. This is my biggest struggle right now.
God is good and has been blessing me with sleep, food, and friends to support me in prayer and deeds. I am drawing closer to Him and attempting to cling to Him with everything I have. I am also trying to be strong for my son (age 6) and daughter (age 2). I am trying to focus on my walk with God and make Him the center. My wife still needs prayer.
I feel like the holy spirit is prompting me. I feel led to ask people to pray hard for my wife.
Pray that she encounters God in dreams, in media, in billboards, in students, and in the most unexpected places.
Pray against the powers and principalities at war on our marriage.
As long as I can endure financially I will hold onto my marriage. I was only recently served papers, but the bills for this process are already rolling in. I do not wish to make any hasty decisions, and I’m relying on the Holy spirit to minister to me, friends to pray for and support
me, and God to work on and in me.
If you are standing, I want to pray for you! Comment below or hit me up on Twitter. I will pray for as many standers as I am capable.
Speaking of Twitter, if you are a tweep who is standing, let’s claim the #standthegap hashtag, and build a community. We need the support and prayers.
