Prayer requests containing the term “counseling”:
prayer for my marriage & family

July 06, 2015

I've been requesting prayer for my marriage for several months. My wife and I have been separated since September after I committed a horrible sin which caused deep emotional pain for my wife and my stepdaughters. We have a 2 year old son whom my wife has only allowed me to see once since September. I repented immediately and have been seeking help via Christian counseling and Celebrate Recovery. I got my 9-month chip last week. God has really been working on me. My wife had indicated several months ago that she planned to divorce me. There have been a couple of events that have given me slim hope for our marriage, but currently, I have little if any hope. I'm very concerned about my son because he needs his daddy in his life. I don't know why she won't let me see my son. I don't know if she is harboring resentment for me of if there may be some other reason. I love my wife very much, and I desperately want God to restore our marriage and family. My motives, probably for the first time in my life, are pure. I know that what I'm asking for is God's desired will, but I know my wife has free will to choose, and she has biblical grounds for divorce if she so chooses. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to somehow reveal my true character and intentions to my wife and restore her trust in me. Please pray for God to miraculously restore my marriage and my family. Please pray that God would change the circumstances that hinder our restoration and our ability to live together. I have absolute confidence that He can--no matter how impossible it may seem. In this case, it truly will take a miracle. The more people praying, the better. please slso pray for God to give me peace. Thanks.
