Pray for Marriages (Abandonment)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

People often divorce because they feel abandoned. Their spouse is either not  present emotionally, physically, spiritually, or all of the above.  Their connectedness wanes. The pain is real, intense, deep, and devastating, permeated by a deep loneliness.

It is the LORD who goes before you; he will be with you and will never fail you or forsake you. So do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8

Fortunately, we are blessed by the promise of God to never abandon us.  He stands in the gap to hold us, calm us, love us, soothe us, and heal us.  He wants to heal each marital union, because marriage is meant to be a foretaste of a heavenly union with Him.   He can make all things new.

And I will give them another heart and a new spirit I will put within them. From their bodies I will remove the hearts of stone, and give them hearts of flesh. Ezekial 11:19

Let us pray for all married couples, especially those in the midst of heartache,  that they can look beyond their disappointments and continue to trust in you. 

Lord, bless them abundantly. Imbue them with amazing graces to overcome the most difficult circumstances.  Heal their wounds.  Expand their capacity to love.  Give them the gift of extraordinary faith, so that by trusting in your plan, they will have the courage to persevere.  Jesus we trust in You!  Amen.

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Share His promise with the lonely and heartbroken.  Pass it on!
