Praying for Your Spouse to Return

Subject: Worth Praying For my husband to be back?

Greetings, 

Thank you so much for the wisdom shared in your article(are all marriages of God?); I have indeed been blessed by it.

I met my husband as an illegal immigrant in the UK and after helping him secure his stay in the country, now living with another woman, with whom he has an 8-month old baby.

My wish before I met him was to get married before having children. I was robbed of this privilege in helping him to secure his stay as we were advised that his spousal visa application would be more successful if he shows he has a family in the UK. I regret so much that I disappointed God and myself but I have asked for forgiveness and I know He has indeed forgiven me. The application was indeed a success but it has turned out he only came into my life for what he could could gain from me. 

Despite attempts to get him to do what is right, he has left me to raise our two daughters(two and five years of age) on my own. He shows no care for them and I. He really has been wicked towards the children and I.

I’m still praying for God to change his heart but sometimes, I feel I am praying in vain as doubt it is not right to pray for him to be back, though that is the only decision that gives me peace! 

Please advise me. I just want to live by His will, not mine! 

I have shortened my story in order to be as concise as possible, please feel free to ask as many questions as you need, to give me the best help for I have suffered far too long because of this situation.

I would like to thank you for the work that you are doing in the Lord; may God richly bless you…

I pray for God’s guidance all the way, Amen.

Many thanks in advance for you help and kind regards, 

Sylvia

Hi Sylvia,

How did our article about all marriages not being of God give you peace? Was it because you realized that your marriage isn’t of God? If so, then you need to let it go and stop praying for the man you married to return. That would be an evil thing. 

And even if your marriage was of God, we would counsel you to stop praying for God to do your will. Remember what is written in the Word of God:

1 Corinthians 7:13-15 EMTV

(13)  And a wife who has an unbelieving husband, if he consents to live with her, let her not divorce him.
(14)  For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy.
(15)  But if the unbelieving spouse separates, let him or her separate; the brother or the sister has not been bound in such cases; but God has called us to peace.

So now you know what to do if you want to live by the Lord’s will and not your own. 

Are you continuing to read on our site, Sylvia? Tell us more about your spiritual life and history. Give us some details, too. 

Paul and Victor

Confusion comes from the Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus.

I saw your article and would be interested in defending the placement of this parable in the AV.  I agree with many of your observations; however, I believe one more piece of evidence could put you on the road to seeing the "big picture" of this parable in why it gives these outlandish details....respectfully yours, Patrick From: Paul Cohen To: Patrick Sent: Sunday, October 23, 2016 9:08 PM Subject: RE: Rich man & Lazarus parable. We'd be interested in hearing your argument for the parable, Patrick.  Paul From: Patrick To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 9:37 AM Subject: Re: Rich man & Lazarus parable. Hi Paul, Delighted to get your response.  I pray these following insights will help you in your quest to make sense of this parable, and to find greater joy in understanding truths set forth in scripture. First thing that comes to my mind is "big picture" gleaned from considering the context and setting of the parable.  It is part of a sequence of parables that spring forth from the narrative of chapter 15, verse 1:  "Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to HIm...."this man receives sinners and eats with them".  Jesus then sets forth a string of parables, all of which evolve around the theme of the worth of a soul, and God's great love for all men.  Chapter sixteen, beginning with the parable...

Also, who are teachers that you regard as legitimate, e.g. Pete Cabrera Jr, Torben Sondergaard, Thomas Fischer? I look forward to hearing from you as I have had a troublesome time with my faith as well as basically all aspects of my life and I want to hearken to God closely.

That’s the way it is.  Read the two documents below and you’ll see that those you may think are representing the Lord and teaching His ways aren’t walking with Him or teaching His ways.  Diabolical Doctrines The True Marks of a Cult  This applies to those men you’ve mentioned. For example, they openly ask the public for money on their websites. That’s not something you’ll find the Lord or any man of God doing - ever.  After you’ve red the three links, let us know if you have any specific questions. Also, familiarize your...
