Healing for my marriage

I am a man of many shortcomings in constant need of my Savior. Because of the mistreatment I have shown my wife, I have been out of our home for eight months now.
My heart is broken, but I can see how this is a good thing. God has used this season to teach me, to refine me, and to help me walk in a new way. In many ways, this is a blessing, a wakeup call, a reset. But it has been extremely painful.
My request for prayer is that I will walk in true repentance, seeing my continual need to run to the cross in the daily transformation of my heart through His grace. I need strength to honor God in all I do, to be thankful, patient, gentle and walk in complete humility toward my wife.
Please pray for the healing of my wife’s heart and her ability to allow God to do whatever he wants to do in her.
I am in need of some godly mentorship/accountabilty/counsel. Someone to help lead us through this time. I need His provision of this over both of us, and personally.
I am relying on the grace and mercy of the Father to restore us to each other and see a reconciled marriage that will bring Him glory. I am thankful that she is committed to our marriage, but I need patience to see the good that God is doing, no matter how long this takes.
Thank you for your prayers.sheila.tolsonPrayers: 2562Requests: 24

Do you know that God loves you so much! Do you also realize that you marriage will be restored if you OBEY? Do you realize that God has already answered your prayers ? Do you realize that the success of your marriage now depends on YOU?
This is a very easy Equation. Your wife already is COMMITTED to your marriage! She wants it to work! Off-course God wants your marriage to work!! He instituted marriage and hates divorce! Now guess what .. who is the 3RD Person in this equation…. it is YOU!!
Now you MUST continue to work out your salvation with FEAR and TREMBLING
Read Phil 2 :12 Therefore, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now even more in my absence, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.
In all you do be ACCOUNTABLE and just remember that everything done is under the microscope as its recorded .
The Holy Spirit is the BEST partner you can have , He is the BEST comforter you can have in your walk with Christ. I tell you the TRUTH when you TRULY purpose to walk right with God, the devil will NOT WASTE TIME ON YOU!! He clearly will know its a LOSE LOSE on his end therefore he will look for the next victim.
I tell you the TRUTH, when you become too hot in your walk with Christ, you almost become UNTOUCHABLE!! Yes I am saying this under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Therefore Beloved, keep walking that NARROW path and have FAITH that God wants you to be a Godly husband who will FULFILL his Divine purpose hear on earth.
Now take the STEP of faith that will help heal your marriage. God has ALREADY done his part! He has already approved of your UNION now its on YOU to take the next step. Will you?
Think about it and act on it. Stay Strong in Christ

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the heart of this brother, and his desire to follow you in all aspects of his life. I thank you also for his transparency, responsibility and humility in seeking prayer support for his marriage. I pray that you would answer the specific prayers he has laid out before the community, and that you would equip him with the knowledge and infilling of the Holy Spirit necessary to take each step forward in the path you have laid out for him. I pray that his eyes would look forward and not dwell any longer than is necessary to accomplish healing from past errors. I pray that you would pour out your blessings on our brother and his family. I pray that he would run quickly to you anytime the evil one is condemning him and whispering lies in his ears. As part of his healing, I pray that you will strengthen his ability to discern the voice of the enemy from your voice. Build him into the leader you have intended to be for his home.felixculpa723Prayers: 1155Requests: 5

Heavenly Father, I pray again this night that you would heal this husband and wife, and the marriage they seek to repair. Help them to develop strong and truthful communication so that trust between them can be restored. Let their faith in you be the catalyst that initiates the first steps toward reconciliation.pattysyellowbusPrayers: 1044Requests: 10

God bless you brother hello4! Your desires are good and godly. Pursue them. As you do, I encourage you to also talk with your wife about what she needs from you in order to heal the past sins and hurts. Does she need you to check in with her 3 times a day, honestly telling her where you are and what you are doing? Keeping honesty above all else. Does she need you to take an Anger Management class to help learn how to better manage your anger? Does she need you to enter Christian counseling to deal with your underlying causes? Ask her what she needs from you and then do it.
As the wife of an addict, I would say all these things need to happen for a minimum of 6 months. Actions speak louder than words. I would prefer to see godly actions and accountability rather hear the same old words over and over. Obviously, I don’t know your situation, so if anything I’ve said rings true, then use it, if not, ignore. ~gaile_richar2003Prayers: 51Requests: 1

We thank you for this couple and we praise you that they desire to trust you. I ask you God to lead them to a pastor who will be able to counsel and mentor them. If not their own pastor, then someone else that they know or someone referred to them. I thank you that they realize that they need help. I also thank you that this husband realizes his need for you in every area of his life. Help him to take the lead and be the provider that God has called him to be. Also help both of them to trust the process however long it takes. Allow this process to draw their family to you and to each other. Be glorified in and through them. Allow their marriage to be an example of your faithfulness and forgiveness. In Jesus Name, Amen.felixculpa723Prayers: 1155Requests: 5

Heavenly Father, I pray that you would raise up prayer warriors to support this couple during this time when skepticism outweighs trust. Father, you are the only one who can guide this couple out of the valley they are walking. We believe that this situation is serious, and that healing will require immeasurable humility by both husband and wife. Lord, inhabit the prayers of your people. Grant this couple the patience to walk out of this extremely difficult valley, and to understand and discern the doubts of so many well meaning believers who surround you.pattysyellowbusPrayers: 1044Requests: 10

In Jesus Name, we pray for this marriage – dear Heavenly Father! We look to You and know this is not a quick fix; it is a marathon journey but You O God are faithful. How many times, dear LORD, can I testify to Your faithfulness and Your goodness when I was so less than deserving – Yet You have been there through out our journey. Thank You, LORD. We plead that You do the same for this marriage, sweet Jesus and since this is Your will: to restore that which is broken. Humble children who seek You with all of their hearts and desire to do Your Will – in that You delight – and we find refuge. Praise Your Name!gsimoninPrayers: 2421Requests: 19

Continuing to pray for this couple, Lord. Be very close to both of them, revealing to them what is broken and what needs to change. Give them wisdom in making the necessary changes. Above all, Lord, give them hope that things can get better as they invest in their marriage.
Brother – A question: Does your wife like fresh flowers? If so, give her some today. ~gailhello4Prayers: 72Requests: 6
