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

Righteousness, The Expression of Faith
From: Frank To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, October 09, 2016 12:54 AM I would like to know more about being found right in the eyes of God.  And also about God calling me rather than me saying that I'll come to God.  I will admit I'm a sinner probably one of the worst but I do believe that God has allowed me to  come across your site on the Internet not by accident but by his purpose. I have issues with lust, porn, drugs, and no matter how hard I try I can not overcome in my own strength.  From: Frank To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, October 09, 2016 1:01 AM Subject: I would like to know more About being made right in the eyes of God.

I believe it wasn't and accident coming across this site but God's plan.  From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Frank Sent: Wednesday, October 12, 2016 7:16 AM “I have issues with lust, porn, drugs, and no matter how hard I try I can not overcome in my own strength.” That’s why you need a Savior, Frank, and He has brought you here to hear His Teaching. Take advantage of what the Lord Jesus Christ has made available to you in order to turn from your sins and call on His Name in Truth. Soak in the Word of God on our site, which builds faith in Christ, and the expression of this faith is the way of becoming right in His sight. “For what does the Scripture say? ‘Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness’” (Romans 4:3 MKJV).
