Greeting Prayer Warriors,
We all know someone who is suffering from a failed marriage that ended in divorce. Often, only one spouse wanted the divorce and the other one suffered the consequences. Other times, the one leaving fled from abuse, be it physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. While we usually pray to preserve marriages, I feel called to pray for the healing of those who continue to suffer due to the loss of their marriage, and/or the destruction of the family unit. Plus, let us also lift up those marriages which are hanging by a thread!
Sometimes a way seems right, but the end of it leads to death!
Lord, you show great mercy for your children and forgive the offenses of the contrite of heart. Shower the divorced and separated with your merciful love so they may experience unconditional love!
The righteous cry out, the LORD hears and he rescues them from all their afflictions.The LORD is close to the brokenhearted, saves those whose spirit is crushed. Psalms 34:18-19
Heavenly Father, sometimes one finds themselves in places they never planned to be. Everyone hopes for the best and can be confused as to how they arrived at their unwanted destination. Heartache, despair, self-loathing, confusion, anger, and sorrow can become their daily companion. Dear Lord, help the afflicted. Silence all the negative noise in their heads and heal their hearts and minds. Give them the grace they need to forgive their former spouse and bring them to a place of peace.
Finally, for those whose marriage is teetering on the precipice, show your compassion by miraculously changing hearts. May all be amazed at the power and mercy of God and sing your praises! Alleluia! Amen.
Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and do not subject us to the final test, but deliver us from the evil one. Matthew 6:12-13
Peace, Joy, and Love,
Forgive someone who has hurt you and encourage another. Pass it on!
