  5. I am asking for prayer, I have had two affairs on my spouse and I am so ashamed. I felt empty and needed something more, my spouse was gone a lot and I was left home. We have been married for 25 years. I love my spouse more than anything but the guilt is killing me inside. I can’t come to terms with why I would do something so horrible when I have the most amazing spouse alive. I’ve asked for forgiveness several times, I want peace back in my heart forever. I want to go to heaven, I help people and I go to church. I don’t know if God will forgive me for this or not, I am in desperate need of help and prayer. This is something I would never do again and spouse loves me so much. We are happy, very happy but I have guilt that is so heavy, I just need reassurance that I may enter the Kindom of Heaven. Please pray for me and offer guidance. In Christ name, Amen.

  7. I am asking for prayers for my husband and I. I found out that he has been having an affair for over a year. We have been married for 16 years and for some reason I am not ready to give up on my marriage. I still suspect the affair is going on, and yet I am here. I know I am the only one trying to save this marriage and yet I am still here. I feel he is in love with this other woman and yet I am still here. Why? I am praying and hoping that he finds his way back to me. That he will give his heart back to me. I can just imagine what this sounds like to all of you, but please pray for us. That we can find happiness again with each other and that it is God’s will.

  28. Hi all,

    Peace be with you all.

    My husband and I have been going through a lot of trials and tribulations for the past few years now. God blessed me with a wonderful spouse who is a very good husband and a wonderful father to our 2 kids. He is very down to earth, good in all the sense and truly selfless. We met and a year later we were married. Throughout the almost 12 years of our marital life I came to realize that we do actually share a lot of similar characteristics. Unlike me, he does not go to church every Sunday as I do with our 2 kids but he is the most God fearing person I have ever met. I am not trying to portray him as a perfect man, no! we do also have our own issues as all couples out there but at the end of the day we always manage to bring peace in our home.

    Please help me pray for our marriage as I have a nosy mother-in-law who is forever interfering in our marriage and has also mislead her son a lot. I am sure that if not by God’s grace and the true love that exists between us she would have already succeeded to separate us because she is the cause of the majority of our problems. The sad thing is that as everybody and as men most especially he loves his mom so much that he does not see all her evil tricks and how manipulative she is.

    our finances were very good back then and therefore we were always there for people (family and friends) whenever they needed us. Our situation has turned to the point where we struggle to provide for our family.
    We have already lost all we used to have: businesses, house etc… but God is all we have never lost.

    My husband is about to be kicked out from his workshop because he can’t pay his monthly rent anymore. we have some amazing business opportunities that we can’t convert in real assets because of lack of funds.

    Please help me pray for a complete breakthrough and for his health which also got affected because of too much stress. God has to answer our prayer about the workshop very soon otherwise I don’t know how worse things will become for us.

    Thank you for your patience and your prayers for all of us on this list.

    May God bless us all and answers all our prayers in the name of he who went from places to places to solve the unsolvable, his son Jesus Christ.

  29. Hello Everyone!

    I am struggling with finding joy and balance in my life and am trying to break free from the strongholds of fear, procrastination and pride. Would you please pray that I will be open to letting God work in my life/heart in order to break these strongholds as I feel like my relationship with God is in a dry season.

    I would also like to ask prayer for my son. He is 3 and struggling with the issue of aggression towards his younger brother and other children. I feel like I live on edge because I never know when this behavior will rear it’s ugly head, and it’s exhausting!!! Please pray that God will give me strength, patience, wisdom and guidance to address this issue in a loving way and that God will work on changing his heart to be more kind to his brother and friends.

    Thanks and God Bless!!!
