Thanks, Maia, for bringing this thread back to page 1.
I carry this little poem in my wallet. It's printed on a laminated card 2" x 3.5".

The Cross in my Pocket
I carry a cross in my pocket
A simple reminder to me
Of the fact that I am a Christian
No matter where I may be.

This little cross is not magic
Nor is it a good luck charm.
It isn't meant to protect me.
From every physical harm.

It's not for identification
For all the world to see.
It's simply an understanding
Between my Savior and me.

When I put my hand in my pocket
To bring out a coin or key.
The cross is there to remind me
Of the price He paid for me.

It reminds me, too, to be thankful
For my blessings day by day
And strive to serve Him better
In all that I do and say.

It's also a daily reminder
Of the peace and comfort I share
With all who know my Master
And give themselves to His care.

So, I carry a cross in my pocket
Reminding no one but me
That Jesus Christ is Lord of my life Him be.


Memory and hope; one looks backward, and the other forward; one is of today, the other of tomorrow.
"Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain." (Joseph Campbell)

Father, please bring healing to the BSs today.
especially to my husband.

let the wounds we have caused them become honor scars, memorials to love and strength and redemption and healing... Not shameful reminders of hate, touchy points of accusation and hidden anger. amen

First, I pray for willingness from my Higher Power (who I will call God).

God, grant me serenity to accept the things I cannot change about myself-- my addiction, and the painful consequences of the terrible things I've done.

God, grant me the courage to change the things I can change about myself-- my addictive cycle, maintaining sobriety, focusing my daily decision on important values (empathy, integrity and family), and surrendering resentments to you before they fester.

God, grant me the wisdom to understand the difference between the things I can change and the things I cannot. I can't fix everything that is wrong.

God, help me to remember to talk to you today, tomorrow, the next day, and the day after.

God, help me to love myself.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Lord, make my life according to Your will. I have spent almost 31 years trying to make it by my will, thinking that I know better. Help me to give it over to You.

Give us this day our daily bread.

You bless me with so much, Lord. A good job that puts a roof over my head and food in my mouth. The health of my XH and my family. The rebuilding of past hurt relationships and the building of new ones.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Please forgive me, Lord, for my sins, both grievous and trivial. Forgive me for committing adultery and breaking the most sacred bond You created. Forgive me for all I have done and all I have failed to do. Help me to do better. And help me to forgive others for their negative acts against me. No one is perfect, Lord; no one is without sin. Help me to look on others with the same grace and mercy that You have shown me.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Lord, protect and defend me from all temptation that leads to sin, physically as well as in my mind. Help me to stay on the path to goodness, righteousness, willingness to work, patience and virtue.

For the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory are yours, now and forever. Amen.

Amen.

God-- help me to remember to talk to you. to soften me so I trust you. to help me to think to thank you or the good moments and not just ask for help in the challenging ones. to show me the right things to do. to give me to the courage to do what is right.

God-- help me to make the next best decision. help me to not get overwhelmed with what I cannot control. help me to accept life on life's terms

God-- I pray for J. protect her because I can't. allow her to know your will and to find contentment in it. I hope your will brings her joy and happiness.

Wow! The Recovery Prayer (May 2010) really speaks to me. I have been struggling with bitterness & resentment too long. Even though I am blessed with an adoring repentent spouse, I begrudged what little attention he gave to a would-be OW before he backed away from her. When he is complimenting me or stroking my face lovingly, I would find myself wishing SHE could see or hear it. I would dredge up old hurts from my S during the day and focus on bitterness. It doesn't help that I have an almost photographic memory, so I NEVER forget old hurts. But last night I asked God to help me to see things differently, to truly forgive and focus on what matters now. This morning I feel so at peace - still remember all this stuff, but dispassionately and without anger. Praise him! And please pray that this continues. (((Hugs to all)))

God, it's hard for me not to tell you what your will is-- I want to. I want to pray to you for outcomes and to wish my wishes so that they may come true. I want what I want most of the time... and my wants are only going to materialize if what I want happens to coincide with your will.

I'm tired of being disappointed and wrong; I want YOUR will, God. I pray for willingness to have faith in you-- that your will is something I accept without knowing what it is or understanding it. I think that coincides with the serenity I've been taught to pray for-- to accept the things I cannot change. I cannot change your will, God. I know that.

I'm concerned about J, God. I want her to heal from my infidelity-- I want her to know peace and confidence and love... I want that to be your will, because that is what I want for her. God, please help calm me and soften me to your will. I can't control this. I want to contact her and try to control everything and make this all better. It's so scary, God... I want to trust you. I pray for willingness to surrender all of my shit, God-- to trust you. Please help me to trust you.

I pray for strength in my marriage, Lord. Please help us both make you the center of our lives and marriage. I pray that you provide us resolve to move forward with the true healing that I know only comes from your love and unending grace. We are so unworthy, yet you love us still..... thank you. Thank you for who you are and for all that you do for us.

Amen.

God, please help J. please please please please.... don't let me have ruined her, please. Please give her strength. Please give her peace. Please give her hope for her future relationships. Please, god-- I don't know how else to pray for this. I know you don't grant wishes, but I'm so scared, God. I'm so scared. Is it okay to ask for things for other people, God?... I don't want this for myself. I want her to be better-- if that means moving on from me, then I pray for your will, God. Please watch over her and protect her, because I cannot.

Father,

thank you for hearing us. Thank you for your promises. You said "if anyone lacks wisdom let him ask of God who gives bountifully and without reproach and it will be given."

Lord, give us wisdom. Show us how to love. Show us how to live. Show us how to overcome our own flesh and to live guided by You and Your heart.

Father provide your Spirit in an outpouring of grace for us this day and let us walk in the freedom you so dearly bought for us. Help us to live in that freedom, unfettered by shame and bitterness and resentment and anguish. Heal us Lord.

grant us your favor and blessing and life, your cunning and your motives, your desires, your truth.

in Jesus name

amen

Tonight, as I join this support site as a new member, I will say my prayers here.

Dear God,

My husband is my world, my strength, my hope, my joy, my everything. I pray for him so deeply, with intense love, gratitude, empathy, and hope. I pray for him to find peace, clarity, closure, and faith. I pray that he will open his arms and heart to me and allow me to be there for him, always. I pray for him to have the strength to be patient and to have faith that we can work through this, slowly and hand in hand. I pray that he sees the love and commitment in my heart, the passion and actions to show that he, and our beautiful children, are the commitment that I will always live for, love for, and dedicate all of myself to.

Dear God... I pray for our relationship and strength. I pray we can put faith in each other and make this journey together. I love him with all of my heart.

Thank you, I believe in you, I trust you, and I pray that you believe in me. Amen.


I hit rock bottom... I am determined that my rock bottom will be the solid foundation on which I build my life.

He means everything to me... always has, always will.

God, thank you for helping to keep me focused on you these past few days. I feel stronger because I believe in you, and I believe you hear me when I speak to you... usually :) Letting you back into my life wasn't painful and it was only scary at first-- thank you for your grace and your willingness to let yourself be known by me.
