  34. Dear Lord Jesus and Mother Mary, and St. Andrew;

    My husband “Andrew” and I are separated and he has filed for divorce after 25 yrs. We have 3 beautiful children and I am heartbroken to have a broken family. This is not who my husband is, and he has never had these values…he is in a stronghold of sin. Please bless our marriage and bring reconciliation to us (even if the divorce goes through) please speak to him and bless him with a new heart for our love. Help him to chose our family, but most of all me, and our renewed love for each other over “her.” I am having trouble surrendering him to You oh Lord, so help me to work on me, while you work on him.

    Praise you Jesus!!

    Bless you Jesus for the reconciliation of our marriage.
