Father God, what can I say? My wife has walked out on me saying that she can’t stand to be with me and that she no longer loves me. How can this be? I worked so hard to provide for everything that she wanted, but now that times are hard, she wants me out of her life forever, and has asked for a divorce.
Forgive me, Lord, for my part in this rift that has developed between my wife and me. Perhaps I put too much weight on providing for the comforts of life, without being the loving comforter she may have needed. Perhaps I looked too much outside the walls of my home for my own comforts too, and became too easily flattered by others who seem attracted to me.
Forgive me for letting my marriage fail to the point where we may be separated, and even divorced. But thank You Lord, for all You did for me at the cross of Calvary. I know that there is no sin that I have committed in thought, word or deed that was not dealt with by the cross, for we are told that the only sin that cannot be forgiven is unbelief in Jesus, and I trust in Jesus Christ as my Saviour.
Lord, I pray that our marriage will not end in divorce, but that by Your grace You would bring us back together again, to start afresh, with You at the helm of our home, rather than with me thinking I had to prove myself. Thank You, Jesus, for being there for me.
