Most gracious Heavenly Father, in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. We touch and agree with all the saints and prayer warriors, standing in the gap for this our wayward nation, the United States of America and our confused leaders (Politcal, Military, Spiritual and Religious). Father God we humbly ask that You remove the scales from our blinded eyes, allowing us to see sin as you see it, and once recognized, grant us the grace of repentance. Un-stop the deaf ears, allowing us to hear your voice in the name of Jesus. Remove the veil of darkness from our minds, and grant us spritual decernment. Remove the stoney hearts and replace and restore a heart of flesh filled with agape love and compassion in the name of Jesus. We touch and agree to the binding and rebuking of any and all satanic/demonic spirits, all ungodliness, unrighteousness and uncleanliness that would oppose, hinder,or prohibit Gods divine will and plan for this nation and His people. We come agaist the spirit of antaganism, animosity, anger, addiction and anti-christ. In the name of Jesus, we decree and declare wisdom is our counselor; the Holy Spirit is our consultant; Jesus Christ is our advocate, God El Elyon, our judge has declared and we therefore establish that our officers are peace, our exactors righteouness, our walls salvation and our gates praise. We plead the Blood of Jesus over this nation and its inhabitants, over each and every soul of every man, woman and child on the face of this earth. We seal this prayer in Jesus' name, Amen and Amen, thank You Father.

My husband wants a divorce. I’m committed to my marriage & want it to work. I love my husband with all my heart. I know there is another women who he is emotionally connecting to . Several of my husband's friends are telling him to just call it quits & leave us versus encouraging him to see if we can make it work. Most are single, divorced or going through their own problems & this has made it harder for him to see if we can try to work on it. I’m afraid he won't give us a chance to work on our communication & passion. He has stopped wearing his wedding ring & has not told me he loves me in over a month. I am sleeping on the couch downstairs & he is sleeping upstairs in bed. He has been closing himself off & when we are together he is always texting or on his computer putting distance between us. He says we have no fire anymore but won’t allow us to connect or try to see if there is fire lying underneath that just needs fanning.
He has agreed to see a counselor (who is also a minister) for up to 6 visits but no more but we haven't had a real break-through yet. He says he still loves me & has forgiven me for not respecting him enough & having a relationship that we should have had in the first place. However he feels that we want two different things going forward, him a divorce and me to work it out and overcome and improve ourselves. I am not sure why he agreed to counseling unless there is some hope sometimes in him. We are learning a lot about each other at our sessions but we are not feeling any intimacy. I still dearly love him & want to reach out but all of my attempts have been pushed away with coldness. Sometimes it feels like there is hope & other times none at all. I know we have passion if he only gave us a chance. We have been married for 9 years now & have an 8yr old daughter.
I’m praying often & I am trying my best to be the wife God wants me to be. I have worked through the Save Your Marriage program & have recently read the book by Dr. Eggerichs, Love & Respect. The book is an amazing eye opener for me & is based in scripture. I’m actively practicing unconditional respect for him but I’m getting resistance back a bit. He is not comfortable with me telling him I respect him & believe in him. I’m actively applying what I have learned through all of my resources however my husband feels it is isn’t enough. He feels I am a different person (which was the point) and he isn’t comfortable around me and only wants to be friends, nothing romantic. I feel that we can try to rebuild a healthier and better marriage using the tools we are gaining to keep learning, growing, loving & respecting one another. I’m truly trying my best & love my husband very much. I pray as often as I can & have asked as many people and churches I can find to help pray for us. I’m trusting that God will see I am trying to be the wife he wants women to be. I pray that God will hear my prayers & answer them as he has promised. I ask & pray for my husband that he will try the same & see where we can go on as a happily married couple. I hope that prayer will open his eyes and show him the harm he is doing our daughter, me and himself. My daughter is really hurting from this and wants to be with her father but also wants him to go away as well because of the pain he is causing us both. I know I haven't been the best wife I could have been (through my words & actions) & I am trying to do so now. I just want a chance & I am asking God for that. I am truly sorry & need a chance to do it the right way with my family intact and with God as an active participant in our marriage. Please pray for us. Jennifer, Zach & Emma
