31 Days of Marriage Prayers – Your Marriage Isn’t Over Yet

Marriage Prayer - Your Marriage Isn't Over Yet

Marriage Prayer – Your Marriage Isn’t Over Yet

Are you past hope in restoring your marriage? I know that some of you think you are, but are you sure about that?

What about a marriage that’s dead? What if there’s nothing left for either partner? Is all hope gone?

What if you’re struggling to the point where you feel like giving up? What if you both are?

Consider this piece of scripture. It’s pretty cool, so read closely.

John chapter 11 gives us an account of Lazarus, brother to Mary and Martha. When their brother fell sick they sent word to Jesus to come and see him. Verse 11 tells us that when Jesus heard his friend was sick, He waited two days before leaving. Two days.

    The most painful time of my life was last year during our separation and the death of our marriage. Our marriage, like it was, had to die. It has been reborn into a totally new marriage. My journey with the Lord was the closest most intimate one. I thank Him for the pain. He had to heal us as individuals before He could ever restore our marriage. There is always hope when Christ is at the center.

    Thank you for writing this book! I am committed to pray for my marriage, for all marriages but especially my parent’s marriage. After I complete the challenge I hope to share it with my mother. She is not into technology at all, in fact she doesn’t have a computer or internet and still uses a flip phone, so is it okay if I print all of your postings and share them with her?
    I was also curious if when you refer to page numbers in your book like you did at the end of this blog could you maybe indicate what you are referring to on that page because page 13 on my Nook is not the same as page 13 in the book. 🙂

    Thanks again,
    Blessings

    Once again you have hit it dead on. For several months I have been searching biblically for answers about the potential end of my marriage. Not because I want it to end, because it is without life.
    I have chosen to walk in faith that my marriage will be what God wants it to be if we are both doing our part. I cannot control what my husband does, says, or feels. All I can do is, do the right thing. I strive each day to do just that.
    The timing of this group is prefect and will help me pray more often, and specifically. Blessings to each of you today~

    I started reading Messy BEautiful Love last night…my husband asked what I was so intently reading on my kindle on the way to pick our kids up after band practice…and I told him. He’s heard me talk about often, your 21-day challenge was amazing and he’s very appreciative. 😉

    This morning, we were out of the shower, ready to dress, I sat on the bed and asked him to pray with me…and I prayed the prayer I always pray quietly out loud…the one where I asked God to Bless my marriage to be the marriage he brought together, to help us with our speed bumps during the day, and to help me be a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, and worker, and to please keep my husband safe in His hands all day.

    When I said Amen, my husband and tears in his eyes. Such a simple prayer I say every day, and yet so powerful. Darlene, Thank you for being so willing to open up and share your story. You are leaving your footprints on many hearts around the world.

  • Linda Ammons

    Rich and I are doing this together. Since the discovery of Richard’s affair, God has truly changed both of us. I have to be willing to allow God to work through me. That means I need to trust God to teach me to trust Rich again. This is hard because I have always had utter faith in my husband and his love and for 10 years he didn’t love me, he loved someone else and I didn’t know it. What does that say about me? I think it says I have a hard time believing that anyone I care about could do me any harm.

    The last thing my husband does for me each night, is pray over me. And I literally mean that. He holds me in his arms and takes me before the throne. He allows me to hear him praise God for me and those words are so healing. For 22 years we have been married but only for the last 5 months have I experienced complete, unconditional love. It has been amazing. Our former pastor told me that while God had gotten into Richard’s head, it wasn’t until I forgave him and he experienced unconditional love and forgiveness that his heart truly understood the price Christ had paid for each of us.

    Rich just sent me the following text after reading today’s challenge:
    I Love the lesson, “It doesn’t matter if your marriage has been dead ten days or ten years, God has the power to heal it”! I love you and I am looking forward to decades of being your loving husband (insert kissy lips here)

    I don’t think I could have illustrated what I just wrote any better than he just did! Thanks Darlene!

    • Darlene Schacht

      I could read this comment a thousand times and still be warmed by it. wow. WOW.

      This really touches my heart: “The last thing my husband does for me each night, is pray over me. And I literally mean that. He holds me in his arms and takes me before the throne.”

    • Lisa Maria

      Oh Linda…I could have written these words myself! “it wasn’t until I forgave him and he experienced unconditional love and forgiveness that his heart truly understood the price Christ had paid for each of us” My husband told me that he didn’t know what love really was until I showed him that I could love and forgive him despite his transgressions. We were married for 19 years when our world fell apart. I’ve been in your shoes. Praising God for you and your husband and the rebirth of your marriage! Reading your words were so beautiful! Thank you for sharing them. I’m happy to say that my husband is joining me in the challenge too. Blessings! <3

      • Linda Ammons

        Lisa Marie, I think our husbands want this as much as we do. It cannot be easy being them and having to pretend like things don’t hurt so much when deep inside they are screaming to be admired, lifted up and respected. I did not realize just how much these things meant to my husband until he told me how good I am at doing them. It is my prayer to be able to teach Godliness to the next generation of women.

  • Kelly

    Darlene,
    I loved today’s post. I’ve read the story of Lazarus many times, and most of the time get something new from each and every time. But today you’ve brought a new lesson to light in my life. I know Jesus is the Resurrection, and the life, and that He can and will heal the brokenness (if we let Him), but I had never put the story of Lazarus together with a marriage. It was like a light bulb appeared over my head. 🙂 Anyway I just wanted to share that with you and thank you for your obedience to Christ in writing this book, and doing this 31 Day prayer Challenge. It’s been an inspiration to me already.

    Su – I’m not Darlene, but I will praying for your marriage.

    • Darlene Schacht

      Yes, lightbulb on my head too yesterday. It can apply to so many relationships in our life. Grown children who have walked away from their faith, a broken church, dead friendships, and a broken marriage. All things that God can breathe life into.

  • Julie Simmons

    I have found praying and thanking my husband for anything he does for me or our family has helped me keep everything in God’s perspective. It isn’t always easy to say thanks, but here is the verse that I find helpful and count on: 1 Thessalonians 5:17-19New International Version (NIV)

    17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

    19 Do not quench the Spirit.

    36 years of marriage is a testimony to God’s Glory and His working in my life as well as my husbands’…it doesn’t get easier as you get older, but more intentional and loving. God comes first because He is my love of heaven, then my husband~he is the love of my life here on earth.
    Thanks for your daily reminders of God’s power in our marriages this month!!!

  • Kelly

    I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint. Jeremiah 31:25 NIV
    Prayers for all those involved in this challenge and needing help with their marriage.

  • Jamie A.

    I went through a period of time in my marriage when I felt like my husband was an obstacle. This verse really helped me through that time because I began to understand that Satan enjoyed the fact that I was against my husband. But the scripture is right, the battles we fight are not against our spouse. The battles are against the evil one who lurks looking to devour the sweetness of marriage in anyway possible. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Eph 6:12

  • Brenda De La Fuente

    Prayer for restoration for my marriage after 10 years of marriage. We are almost about separation. Thank you.

  • Jessica

    I am hopefull that this series will help in the restoration of my marriage. Please pray for my marriage and my husband.
    Su, I will keep you in my prayers!

  • Stephanie

    Hi Darlene and the TWW family,
    I am new to your site but I am sure I was brought to your site for a reason. God bless you and your ministry. The scripture that I am holding on to are Romans 8:28 and Romans 5:3-5. I know for me I do feel like giving up but I am using my mustard seed faith and believing that God’s plans are bigger than my plans and that he is doing a work in both me and my husband. It’s really REALLY hard but I die so that God can live in me. I am encouraged to hear that I am not alone and that there are other women that are holding on too.

    God Bless you all

    Stephanie

    • Darlene Schacht

      Beautiful. I’ll paste them here for the others:

      And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28

      And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. – Romans 5:3-5

  • Tona Cornelius

    Morning Darlene – you hit it on the head with the title: “It’s not over unless GOD says it’s over.” According to my husband’s decree (in court) our marriage is over, dead, buried under a tombstone marked Divorce final – but GOD! Who am I to challenge His word?

    Happy Thursday!

    Su – we will lift you and your husband up in prayer.

    Grace and Blessings my friend!

    After over 6 months of waiting on God to restore my marriage, 2 days ago I had given up and decided to walk away. I’d finally had enough.
    Since then, I’ve received several devotionals, including this one this morning, all with the same message: Don’t give up hope.
    Thank you for your timely words. It’s bringing me back to a place of waiting and holding on to hope!

  • FD

    It’s Not Over Unless God Says it’s Over!!! These words and prayer have encouraged me further. I battle daily for our marriage. Even though in her own mind she is no longer my wife, I still love her. I am fighting against the enemy and not her. Dear Lord give me strength as I wait for your resurrecting power in our marriage.

  • Kelly Youngblood

    “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” Galatians 6:9 ~~ Writing this on the tablet of my heart… for my marriage as well as many other aspects of life!

  • Cass Lobato

    Ive lost hope for my marriage countless times, especially in the last year….I think the word divorce came up at least 5 or 6 times. From my husband, not my words, I was more comitted to the whole marriage vows thing, “for better or worse, til death do us part.” I prayed everyday, I waited, I was up and down like a huge rollercoaster. I was confused, hurt, helpless, except for my faith, and determination to draw closer to God and His will and love for me and my life, and for my husband and our marriage.
    I left. I left the state and went back to my parents for help. I thought its over….God made up His mind. I felt blessed, thimgs were good. My husband sent a text saying, basically, “it was time to divorce, it was the ‘healthy’ thing to do.” I disagreed in my own heart. I did not respond to him, and did not speak to him in almost 3 weeks at all. I did, however, go straight to God. I found complete trust in God. I said, “Okay God, he’s yours, if this is your will, so be it.” I let go, and let God….fiinally, fully. I expected divorce papers.
    About 3 weeks later, he called and said “I want you to come home.” and surprisingly he quoted the Bible.
    Im home now. It is still a battle, but now I am closer to God. And I trust completely that “it’s not over until God says it is.”

  • Carrie

    We’ve been married for 33 years and about 20 years ago our marriage was dead. I was done, he was done, we both had had enough of the fighting and yelling at each other. We had decided it was time for the “D” word. But through the Grace of God, we worked hard following His word and stayed together. It was a rough, hard road restoring our marriage, but we made it. We have grown closer together and closer to God. Without God being the center of our marriage, we probably wouldn’t have stayed together. We are closer than ever today and our love for each other continues to grow. By putting God first in your marriage, he will guide you through every messy, dirty & stinky times you have. We love each other more today then ever before, but we love God more then we love each other, and we thank God every day for bringing us together.

  • adepeju

    I will like to encourage as many that are passing through the wilderness experience in their marriages now to claim the promises of God in Isaiah 43vs 19 “Behold He will do a new thing” They can start reading it from vs 10 downwards

  • Heather @ My Overflowing Cup

    Thank you for this series, Darlene. I think that praying for our marriage (and others) is the best thing we can do. When we invite God in, it changes everything. I love how you weaved the story of Lazarus into this because that is a beautiful truth about our Lord. He does have compassion for us, but He also has a desire for us to grow in Him. Sometimes that takes time. I have been in a marriage that I though was dead, but God’s incredible power resurrected it into something blessed and beautiful. We just need to trust Him with our marriages. It’s not always easy, but it is always worth it. Thank you for this series.

  • JOYCE

    Am glad I joined this prayer challenge. No marriage is beyond repair. The book of Esther does not mention God by name, but we see God’s workings behind the scenes.
    Our marriages are the same, when we commit them to God, He will be working behind the scenes to make our marriages better.
    We have to remember that “Marriage, is God’s business”, and as long as living according to His word, He will do everything to make it work. It may take days, months years etc, but He will surely come.
    Prayer works.

    I would like to say to all those who are struggling, DON’T GIVE UP! You may feel there is no hope but there is! Pray, no matter how futile you think it is…PRAY for your husband and your marriage. Get serious about your relationship with The Lord first and foremost (Matthew 6:33). Spend the time praying, no matter what and don’t give up. The enemy will rear his ugly head, but greater is He that is in you than he that is in this world (I John 4:4). Trust in God’s sweet, Holy Spirit and He’ll bring about change. Let your attitude be where your husband sees Jesus! My husband & I have been married for 25 years. Our first years of marriage were in the world’s opinion, bound for divorce, but because of The Lord’s Grace we are walking out life hand in hand in the Name of Jesus and for His Glory! Thank you Darlene for this call to come together and pray for our husbands and to lift each other up during these 31 days!

    My inlaws struggled in their marriage before they became Christians. My mother in law was led to the Lord by a Christian relative who was comforting her during this time. Their troubles included my father in law actually having a brief affair. However, through my mother in law’s new life in Christ, he too turned to the Lord and they reconciled. They have never turned back. This was over 30 years ago. Since that time, they have served as Christian grandparents to 10 grandchildren and numerous greats. My father in law became an ordained minister and has married four of his grandchildren to date. Three of their four children are serving the Lord and the other one may be or we pray will be soon. They are active in their church and help those they can. They know the devil is sneaking around trying to destroy families so they put God first in all they do and they trust him. Their life is a testament to God’s resurrecting power in marriages. I am so thankful to have them in my life as I lost my own Christian parents; my mom 20 yrs ago and my daddy 10 years ago. Please serve God each day and put your focus on him dear people, and let God handle your life. In his most sincere love. I will pray for you today.

  • Kelly

    Thank you for this 31 days of prayer Marriage Challenge ! (It’s not over unless God say’s its over) This post was wonderful and touches me personally. My husband and I married 7 years ago. My first marriage was for 24 years, and this is my second marriage. My husband had previous wives before me. I didn’t realize at the time that my husband had clinical depression, PTSD from the Vietnam war, had lot’s of anger and a problem with pornography and lying about it. I know that I am rather structured, and scheduled-regimented and with other differences we had a very traumatic beginning. After almost 4 years and I decided that I couldn’t be in this marriage anymore. I went through divorce proceedings and after 9 months apart, for some reason we decided to come back together and not go through with the divorce. Within a short time of being back together, the same issues from before were still there. Even though I had God in my life, I hadn’t completely turned my life and my troubles over to him putting our marriage into his capable hands. I needed to look to him first and foremost before all else and lean on him through all those times of difficulty. I used to pray for God to change things in my husband. Instead I began to pray for God’s guidance for a healthy marriage. My husband who was a non-believer at first told me that I was using God as a crutch in my life. Before long, my husband began to take notice as the Lord was changing me and it made him want to change as well, though it also angered him a bit too being a strong-willed man who has always wanted to be in control of all. Before long my husband’s interest began to flourish and he purchased a Christian book, which lead to purchases of various bibles and a complete turn-around in his being. It has now been 8 months since the Lord called my husband, and he is a different man. The lord has put a buffer on his depression, his PTSD, and anger. We pray together and read the word each night. We both feel that the lord has placed us together for a purpose. He has brought JOY–PEACE and STRENGTH into a marriage that was broken, lifeless, and painful. The lord is guiding us in building our marriage with love, a trusting friendship, and being kind to one-another (which we hadn’t ever had) We want to learn to love like Christ loves. We truly feel that “God didn’t say that our marriage was over”- he has something special in store for us. It is a work in progress, and we can’t wait as we see the growth that he brings to our individual beings and our marriage with each passing week and month !

  • Jes

    I am grateful for your blog post today. Thank you! It is exactly what I needed to read right now! Praying that it isn’t too late for my marriage.

  • Sharon

    I keep telling myself that SINCE GOD forgave me of my nasty smelling sins, what right do I have to not extend that to my husband! I love him but God loves us so much more. In 24 years of marriage & just so you know we are both remarried… We have struggled and been torn apart by children and my late x-husband. BUT through it all God has kept us in the palm of his hand especially the last 6 months when my hubby went through life changing bladder and prostrate cancer. 2 different types of cancer at the same time. He lost all those body parts and others as well. But God & I mean But GOD kept us in HIS hand and we are learning to deal with our marriage in a totally different way. I am taking this challenge not to repair our marriage but to enhance our marriage. Hubby is a pastor of a small retirement community and He is best friend. I also want to add that over these 24 years I have prayed that God would make me a better wife for my hubby. He is still answering this prayer. & your study will help us along.

  • tanya

    I am encouraged by your post today because I am struggling with the fact of possible separtion if things don’t change. but where God pointed me was heb11. Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you don’t see. I wrote a list of hope cause my faith is almost completely gone. After covering four pages of hopes, i don’t know that i will be certain of them but it just takes a mustard seed, I am sharing with friends who are also having a hard time. being sure of what you hope for is the first step to having some faith.

    Exodus 14:14 “The Lord will fight for you, you have only to be silent.”
    This is the verse that God has given me thru my hard times with my marriage, especially recently. So many times, we feel we need to fix things and make it better or we cannot go on…quite OCD! I do not say this in a mean way at all, because I believe there is a little OCD in everyone and sometimes its a good quality! One of my boys is ‘quite OCD’ and he literally cannot move on to something else till the other is done exactly right! I did an Elizabeth Elliot Bible Study a few years back on becoming a Titus 2 woman, and the most important thing I believe I got from this was that the Bible teaches about learning from those who have gone before you. Ironically, that same year I met an older woman in my church, who ended up being exactly that to me. She inspired me when she prayed…she said when her husband and her would not agree, instead of praying for God to fix him, she always prayed, “Lord, bless my husband and change me!”
    This, in most situations, can be proven true…that if we take our eyes off the problem and put them back where they should be, on God, that we realize that we have flaws too and everyone situation can be a learning lesson if we let it!
    My marriage has had Many ups and downs, many nights I have gone to bed facing the opposite direction with a heavy heart….but truthfully my tears and my conversations with the Lord are what get me thru my everyday!
    We have 5 boys who never stop and half of the time this is what strains our marriage, is always taking care of everyone else first and we get back burner!
    God has been bringing it all to the front recently and then I ‘coincidentally’ find your blog and love your book and your writings!
    Thank you for being obedient and bold to share! I know it is hard sometimes to be so raw and real, but as you can see by all our responses, God is using you!

  • Stacy

    It wonderful to hear all the good report of reconciled marriages! My husband and i have been married for 12 years we have two beautiful children but we are separated right now. I am believing God to save my husband and restore my marriage. I will be praying for you all as well!!!

  • Holly

    I love what your dad said, Darlene. “God doesn’t care about what you did yesterday. He’s concerned about what you’ll do today.” A year and a half ago when my husband came to me and confessed things he had been doing during our 13 years of marriage, my world was shattered. I didn’t even know what to do, so we called an emergency meeting with our pastor. Our marriage had always been one others looked up to. I was fooled along with everyone else. When we met with our pastor he said no matter the pain I was going through now, one day I would look back and see it as one of the best days of my life. I thought he was crazy. But, until that pain happened, until the sin was brought into light, it couldn’t be overcome. My verse to cling to is John 8:32 “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” After his disclosure, things seemed to fall in place to help us, marriage conferences were nearby, friends were willing to talk to us, books written by other Christians were there for encouragement. Then, a year after our Truth Date, this was in my devotional (focused on John 1:14). “Facing the truth is necessary for repentance. Having faced the truth, we turn in repentance, and what we find before us is grace. Grace forgives us, saves us, loves us, and accepts us unconditionally.”
    AMAZING! God’s timing is incredible. And I began to see a marriage differently. See, marriage has taught me more about forgiveness, but it’s also taught me more about grace. My husband’s sins hurt me deeply, but when I sin against God, I hurt Him. Yet He sent His Son to DIE for me. And I stand in AWE of His INCREDIBLE love. I’ll never be able to love that perfectly, but I’m learning how to do it a little better every day.

  • Sara S.

    I’m looking forward to this month of praying together for our spouses! It came at the perfect time for me. When I came across your challenge, I was at a women’s retreat that had changed my thoughts and views of my marriage and the wonderful things God has planned for myself and my husband. My husband and I have been married for 6 years and the first 3 were extremely challenging. I’ve remained angry at my husband over the last few years over things that were done in those first three years. My husband has completely turned his life around but I haven’t let go of my anger over things that happened those first few years and continued to blame him for our problems. Recently, I finally allowed my ears to be open to God and he showed me that the reason our marriage is currently in a holding pattern is because I haven’t forgiven and let go of my hurts toward my husband. The last few weeks have been amazing as I’ve learned to let go and my husband says he sees and feels the change in me and our marriage. I use to come home anxious every night and now I look forward to coming home! Thank God for His example of forgiveness. I’m excited to see how God will use our testimony of how we were able to forgive each other and turn our marriage around. We were definitely on our way to divorce and almost everyone I turned to thought I should have left a long time ago. God’s plan was different. Thank God I listened to Him and not everyone around me. Stay strong and pray my friends! God listens!

  • NLO

    I enjoy your blog and your encouragement. Unfortunately my husband and I are separated. My husband moved a way 2 years ago. He lives over 2000 miles away. He told my daughter he didn’t want to be married to me anymore he did this before he moved. He told me he didn’t want to do anything to save the marriage. He has had 2 affairs the first one he told me about and asked I not leave him so we worked through it. Some years later he started again with someone else and the woman’s husband contacted me about it. The husband pasted away so they are still seeing each other. He is doibg this while he is in seminary school. My kids and I are making it through Gods Grace. It is over for us.

  • Dawn V

    Darlene,
    I have been married for 7 years and it has been very rough. In December 2013 I came across the Wife After God book and online bible study and from that I found your site. I have been so blessed by both you and Jennifer that my marriage has taken an immediate turnaround! I was always complaining to God that my husband is so selfish and I wasn’t quiet about saying to my husband either. The one thing that finally clicked with me was that I needed to just give it all to God and let Him deal with my husband. I needed to deal with me and that’s all. After reading that over and over it finally got through to me and I just let go of it. Once that happened, our relationship has gotten so much better! In fact just recently God has been placing on my heart to use my story to help others. I’m pretty sure He means my whole story from my first marriage, which I haven’t told a whole lot of people about so this is going to be interesting! I also want to say that my heart is breaking reading the stories of broken marriages. I will be praying for you all! I was so close to walking away a second time and I’m so glad I didn’t and I pray that you all have healing and wonderful marriages going forward!

  • Ginger

    Darlene,
    I have been married to my husband 48 years. That’s a long time but there were times in my marriage I wanted to giv it up but God continued to work things out. There was alcohol and drug problems in my husbands life but God intervened and got him the help he needed. Our marriage now is great. We are continuing to grow in God together. Our love continues to grow stronger. We never gve up on each other, came close a few times but did not give up! God is good….. All the time! He continues to bless us daily.

  • christal

    Please pray for my marriage …its only been a year and he just admitted to me he committed adultery… I don’t know what to do.He is staying at his moms.

  • Cara

    Reading these real life comments have left me with hope for my own marriage, just when I was about to just give up and wave the white flag. Please pray for my family. Thank you.

  • Sheila

    Thanks for this challenge! My marriage needs help. I am praying for restoration and resurrection but get discouraged. I am at the point that it’s all on God’s hands. I have forwarded these posts to my husband but am not sure if he is reading them. Praying for his heart to be open and receptive.

  • Adelina Priddis

    I’m slowly making my way through this series. I absolutely love this! We’ve had our troubles, but the one thing I’ve always been able to hold onto, was that I knew God didn’t want our marriage to end. So I’ve put it in His hands, and I’ve felt the change in my own heart. It’s been wonderful for me to feel His love, and be able to put that into my marriage.

  • AmandaC

    I have never been a praying type of person, my belief in God has always been there, but I wasn’t raised to pray or attend church. My husband and I are going through massive issues and I have no one to turn to in my family and friends. All I can think about now is to ask for help, strength and courage to face my life. I want more then anything for things to workout and start over. If anyone reading this could include this stranger in their prayers I couldn’t thank you enough. My life is in a very dark place and I some how know things will not be light again without God.

  • Mrs. Brown

    Hello, I know this is years after your post but it wasn’t needed until now. I’m a mother of 3 and have been with my kids father for 14 yrs. We are married and he has left out home to live with his sister. He’s whore down with the cares of the world and feels he hasn’t had time to live for him. Know what it is that he wants in life and that he’s just been going with the flow. He’s been using negative vices to deal and keeping new company that I don’t feel is a positive male. I’ve been praying for a lot of things during this time of separation and have also made so good changes within myself. I had strayed away from God but I’m back and trying to fight for our marriage. My husband doesn’t have the same back ground as me and has been searching for something to believe in but I think he has given up. He thinks I should just live my life and not worry about him its his fight. I’ve tired to explain we are 1 yet he’s in a stress n depressed mood. Please pray for restoration in my marriage. I can’t speak to my family because even though they were raised like me they will throw in the towel and move on.
