This day Lord a special prayer.

Today I pray for Heavy E.

Not because he needs my prayer, not becaue he is not strong or failing in faith.

Today I pray for HeavyE because I want with all my heart and soul for him to feel the love, the same love he has given so unselfishinglessly(ok that cannot be a real word so Heavy E I changed the dictionary just for you).

God, today I pray a special prayer not for those all that suffer or are longing.

Today I pray a special prayer for HeavyE in faith.

HeavyE...I hear you.

I have listened and you have spoden to me with scripture.

May the blessings be upon you. tt

This is an awesome thread! I just noticed it.

Please everyone, pray for me. Pray that God will either heal our marriage or provide an escape route. Pray I'll trust Him throughout everything that happens in my life. That's what we all need!

God spoke to me the other night when I was having a panic attack. The verse: "Be still and KNOW I am God" came to me.

God Bless everyone

At the end of last summer I recommitted my life to the Lord. I had been praying for answers about ending this marriage. My WH is an SA. He crossed a major boundary in Nov. and I thought I was done. WH did not know that I had come to this decision. He asked to go to church with me. He accepted Jesus Christ to be his Lord and Savior. Major, major miracle has occurred and since I had made my decision to leave I was like WHOAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've struggled with whether to leave or stay since then and have prayed for an answer as to what to do.


This is what I was led to read this morning.

Proverbs 3:5, 3:6

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths.

WHOA!!!!! I think I'll wait before calling a lawyer.

There has been big changes in WH since he's been saved, but he's saying the same things to me about not doing the SA behaviors that he's said for the past 2 1/2 yrs. and I'm not ready to believe him yet.

I don't know the bible by heart so being led to read that passage told me to wait.

I am asking for prayer, support and input today. In a nutshell, I feel that I have lost my faith. I am a lifelong Christian who has had my belief in a loving God rocked by the pain of my FWH's A. I feel abandoned by the God I've loved and known all my life. I find myself unable to pray--I literally can't go to Him. Even if you have no advice to give, please pray for me today.

At first I thought I was being punished. Then it was how could you let this happen to me. Then it was where's the ointment for my burned and tortured soul. I had no counsel from a believer because I was not going to church.

This is what I've learned about all of this.

We were created with a free will. God will not take that away. Your spouse cheated of their own free will. The Lord did not do this to you. He knew the damage infidelity causes that's why there's commandments covering this behavior.

Turn to him hon. Read his word in the Bible. Talk to him and he will answer you. I wish I had done that. I have felt so much better since I turned back to him.

Lord Jesus I ask that you lavish Tristesse with your strength and love. Touch her broken heart and soul so that she can have some relief.

There was a minister on here who was a BS. He wrote that he thinks upon death the BS's should be on the direct expressway to heaven.

You will be in my prayers. Remember Jesus cries when one of his own is hurt.

You can have all of my blessings today.

i caught up here and see that this is where i belong.
the deepest stories you all tell!
you invisible cyber-ones!
Not afraid to speak HIS NAME!
this is best proof i got.
You. Here.
speak HIS NAME so loudly with your hearts!
why have i been so long to come here?
i wish to write praises to HIM my S-invisible friends.
I think that everything with a hyphen-is,
ok on here.
so with a hyphen-i praise god he brought me here with this saying.
That the mere mention of HIS name, is an
OFFENSE!
FOR EVERY 99 MOVIES THAT USE his NAME IN VAIN.
Maybe there is ONE,
That says it holily.
(the name that angels love to shout)

Coming back.
YES
HE is coming back.
HE is the ROCK of offense.
Peculiar.
7 times peculiar is a treasure to HIM.

Concordance-it.
Though fearing much, still, I embrace offense,
And survive.

There WILL be an end to this!
An end to all tears.

i pray all can rest in HIM.

tristesse
I didn’t see your post or I would have replied sooner. Your faith in God is being tested for sure. Even Jesus asked that the cup be taken from him. I am sure this is the way you feel too. I know I said those words after the A. Infidelity shakes our entire world including our faith. It is not that we are weak in our faith it is that we have been blasted by a sin that hurts down to our very souls. So first I think that you must forgive yourself if at this time you cannot grasp for God in the same way you have always done. Your life has taken a huge hit and it is hard to feel anything, even God’s love at such times. But God doesn’t leave you even when you are having trouble reaching him. God is still there and patient with us humans. He knows more than we how hard it is to keep our faith when the worldly acts of sin hurt us so tremendously.

It is okay if right now you do not feel the prayer coming to your mind or heart to God. It will when you are ready. God will wait for you. Until then I will say a prayer for you.

Lord, please hear the heart of tristesse who is having difficulty coming in prayer to you. I know you can hear her heart and the anguish she is suffering. Her faith is being challenged in a way she didn’t see coming or expect in her life. I know that this challenge is one she will overcome. God, please stay close to her and give her a moment of light and the peace and warmth of your love. May the strength of angels visit her and lift her spirits on the dark days that sometimes come. And Lord, I know that we need to turn to you in our darkest hour and that the answers to our prayers are on your timeline and for our best interest even when we don’t see the end of the path. It is important to walk our path to you even in times of trouble and challenges, but sometimes we have to stop and wait for you to shine a light upon our path before we can take another step. Thank you God for never leaving us. Please help tristesse Lord. She needs you. Amen.

Lord, I pray for me+6. She is so very scared and feeling so alone. Bring her some solice today to remind her she is never alone. Each step she takes she has your love and support. The angels cry with her and will come to her aid.

My God she is a wonderful mother and the challenges she is facing seem like too much to bear. Yet we know you will be there for her. Hope and faith are the gifts to us to keep us strong when we feel weakened. Please Lord she has knocked on your door in faith asking for the prayers of many and I know you will answer her prayers and mine.

The Lord our God is with us always. me+6 has the power of the heavens to move mountains in faith. No matter what happens she will succeed with your help and guidence.

I pray in the name of Jesus you son that you will soften her path to you. May you always protect her children and help her keep them safe from harm.

Blessings to me+6. In deep prayer. Amen.

I didn't know this thread existed. I'm so glad to have found it.

I've been a Christian practically my whole life.

I feel so far from God. I feel so alone. I don't know how to turn to him anymore.

I need His help in dealing with all this but I just can't seem to pray anymore. I don't hear God or feel Him.

I just feel so alone and afraid sometimes.

Hope 4, it is at the hardest times to turn to God that our faith is most tested. But no matter, God knows this even if we do not. He knows the trials in our life test our faith.

Sometimes we just have to get out of our own way. Sometimes the stumbling block to God is one we have put there because so many worldly issues have buried the person we really are. We look at them and cannot see the way out. We try to focus there to find the path.

I found that if I just walked my path to God that God made sure that the way was clear for me. When I would be stopped and not know what to do, often it was my own self that was questioning everything instead of trusting that which I already knew.

God will not let you fall. God will not let you get lost. God will help you along each step and be with you if you but only trust that.

Sometimes a prayer is not the structured prayer. Sometimes a prayer is a plea worded without knowing what you are really saying, but God can hear your heart.

You may not feel God, but God feels you. Trust in that.

You are not alone. You have us here at SI anytime, for anything. And more, you have the entire heavens on your side. You have the love of the Lord to help you when you feel weak. It will be in God's time, not aways yours, but never fear that you are alone.

May God bring his warmth to your heart and soul and strenthen your faith. May angels come to lift your spirits and may the prayers of two joined together in his name pray for you today.

Blessings be yours Hope4, they are yours.

This is my first post in awhile and my first in this forum, just found it. I am 10 months past D-Day, surviving but not reconciling. Husband refuses to be transparent or seek counseling.

After praying for God's direction, I felt the time had come for me to start planning to end the marriage. Our pastor then called an invited us to a 40 Days of Love Seminar (similar to 40 Days of Purpose). My husband agreed to go and so I thought God was telling me to keep praying and just hold on. We are two and 1/2 weeks into the program. I feel like if something doesn't reach him by the end of this course that I need to make plans to move on out of state when my daughter gets out of school in May.

I have been a SAHM for over 9 years and finances have really been an issue, so I have really been turning these fears over to God and having faith that he would open the doors when the time came.

Well today I had to go and have a mammogram and find out one of my silicone breast implants has ruptured and leaking out of the pocket and into surrounding areas. Now I have to go to a plastic surgeon to have them removed. Health insurance will not cover any of this.

I am scared and wondering how much more I can take. I know God never gives us more than we can handle, so he obviously knows I am stronger than I feel at the moment.

Please lift my situation up in prayer and know that for each message of heartache and hope I read on this board that I do the same. God bless.

Hi all_alone+1

Letting you know praying for you and your situation could you find if there is a
Christian Clinic or surgeon that could help you out with free surgery

or move to Canada for a while free health care there

I have attatched my
Be Encoraged Study

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

I do not know what your needs are today but Jesus knows. You may be discouraged today. You may be going through the hardest trial of your life. I want to encourage you today! Whatever your situation-- the Lord can meet your need! Trust Him-- He loves you.

In this stressful world in which we live, there is a resting place. Aren't you
glad? That rest is found safe in the arms of the Lord Jesus Christ. When troubles come, we can run to our Rock-- the Lord is our Shelter from the storms. He does not always make the winds and the storms cease but He will give us adequate shelter until the storm passes by and will lead us on-- and where He leads, we will follow. We are His sheep and Christ Jesus is our Loving Shepherd. Blessed be His name!

Sometimes, the Lord makes the storm to cease, as Psalm 107:29 says:
He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

Other times, the Lord will shield us from the storm as it rages:
Psalm 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

Still other times, He will walk us through the trials and storms in our lives to bring about a greater work on the inside of us:
James 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

2Cor 1:3,4 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

No matter what our need may be today, there is safety in His everlasting arms. The Lord can meet our every need and He will see us through. He gives rest
to the weary. Strength to the feeble. Hope to the depressed. Comfort to the hurting. He loves us at all times. No problem is too big for God... and no problem is too small that He does not hear our cry. The Lord can do for us what we cannot do for ourselves.

We are to cast upon Him our every burden:

Psalm 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.


PRAYER

As Christians, we are to pour out our hearts to Him. We are to make our requests known unto God and we are to leave our prayer closet knowing that He has heard our request and will answer us in His timing.

Psalm 40:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

We have all heard the phrase, "God helps those who help themselves." But this is not true and it is not found in the Bible. No, the Bible tells us that God helps those who ask for His help-- those who humble themselves before Him.

The Lord says in Jeremiah 33:3: Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

When we read the Psalms, we see the prayers of the faithful:

Psalm 31:24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart,
all ye that hope in the LORD.

Psalm 119:28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.

Psalm 119:107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD,
according unto thy word.

Psalm 27:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.

Psalm 61:2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

As Christians, we are not to have anxiety. This is easier said than obeyed. We live in a very fast-paced and stressful society, but God calls us to live in His rest. We are in the world but we should not let worry overtake us. We should not let the every day cares overwhelm us. The Bible says in Philippians 4:6,7:
Be careful for nothing; [don't be anxious] but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

When we take our requests to God, He gives us the peace that passes all
human understanding. (If we don't have peace yet, it is because we gave Him our burdens and picked them right back up again.) We must make our requests known unto God-- trusting Him that He knows what is best and will answer us in His timing. We may not see the circumstances change right away but we have peace in knowing that our prayer has been heard. God heard our prayer and He begins His work-- though we may not see any change at the moment, He is working all things out for our good. If He will not change the circumstance, then know that He is working on us-- molding us to not be affected by the circumstance-- so that we may rise above it. Our faith in Him looks BEYOND what we are going through to the outcome of what will be:

2Cor 4:17-18 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

And our confidence is in Christ Jesus!-- that no matter what our circumstance and no matter where we may be in this world, the Lord is there. He is there with His children who serve in the military. He is there with the Christian
soldier who is praying in the dangerous foxhole. He is there with the Christian family who is praying in their kitchen. Whatever situation a Christian may be
in-- whether in joy or tribulation-- the Lord is everywhere and is so powerful that can hear every prayer request and supply everyone's need at the same
time. We serve a great and wonderful God!


READING THE SCRIPTURES

The Lord says in Psalm 91:15: He shall call upon me, and I will answer
him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

There is a resting place when we read God's Word. What peace and comfort
we receive when reading and meditating on the Scriptures. The Lord speaks to us about His great love for us. His Word reminds us that the Lord does care and will supply our every need. Whatever our problem, the Lord can see us through. We need to read His promises to us, found in the Bible. We need to meditate upon His Word.

Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written
for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

Psalms 119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.

We need to be encouraged today-- for the Lord shall never leave us, nor
forsake us. He may seem far at times but He is never far. It is we who have walked away from Him -- allowing worry or stress to occupy our minds. When we keep our eyes upon Jesus and put our complete trust in Him, we see that, "all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who
are the called according to his purpose." (Rom 8:28)

Dear Christian, whatever you may be going through today, the Lord desires to meet your need. Whatever storm comes your way, know that the Lord will
take care of you. You are never alone. Pour your heart out to Him and trust Him that He will take care of the rest. The Lord will see you through and we must always remember that ALL things work together for good...

Sometimes He stills the storms;
Sometimes He shelters us from the storms;
Sometimes He walks us right through the storms and trials of our life.

No matter what, there is safety in His arms and we can rest in Him. He knows what is best for us.

Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.


LOOKING UNTO JESUS

As pilgrims journeying through this weary land, our eyes must be fixed upon
the Lord Jesus. He is our Blessed Hope! He is the One Whom we wait for! He is coming back for us someday! His coming is nearer now than when we first believed. His Word never fails! He promised He would return for us one day and He will return. May our hearts ever look to Him and may He strengthen
our hearts as we wait for His glorious appearing:

Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

Hebrews 12:1,2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the
shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.


"But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint" (Isaiah 40:31).

Lord, I pray for all_alone+1.
It is said that you do not give us more than we can handle but Lord many people forget the rest of that concept.

You, my God, do not give us any more than we can handle WITH your help.

Lord I pray this day that you open the eyes of all_alone+1's husband. I ask that the door open a crack even to let you light shine upon his soul so he may see the damage he has done.

Lord I pray that no matter what happens you give all_alone+1 strength to meet the challenge of her circumstances.

May you hear our praise and may the hearts be healed of those that wander here and seek your name.

Blessings Be for all.


Innocent people generally want to get to the bottom of things. Guilty people usually want the discussion to be over as soon as possible.

Prayers please...
I told my WH weeks ago that he could not live in the house with me and continue to see OW. So guess what...he's been living with her.
WH also says it's because all we do is fight (this is true).
This has been hard and sometimes my attemps at 180 fail miserably.
I let him go and gave him to GOD.
I have been very prayerful and WH has siad he was going to seek Christian Counsel because he's challenged and confused...(not sure who he loves) and he's not sure he has the strength to fight for our marriage.

Please pray that my WH does seek Christain Counsel.
Currently he has a FLU, pray that God is either doing this to get him thinking or that GOD will use this to soften his heart.
I think my WH believes in God, but he is not saved.
I pray that God will use this Trial to bring him to Salvation.

Thank you.

Prayers for Tristesse and I am Broken....
Lord please be with these women in their time of great need and doubt. I ask that you pull them through their doubt; place people in their lives to direct them to you and send your spirit upon them Lord, that they may feel your presence and be drawn to you. Lord I know that Trials can be opportunities to show your faithfullness to us, and we thank you for loving us so much that you would use our trials to draw us closer to you and to show your great LOVE for us.
In Jesus name I pray.
AMEN
