  1. Hello Dena! This is Archana from India. I just come across “3 Beautiful Truths Every Divorced Christian Needs to Know”. Thanks for it. it was really uplifting.My husband is a muslim and i am a christian. it was a interfaith marriage. My in-laws were always against my faith. they poisioned my hubby mind n got him married off to another muslim girl as per islamic laws without my knowledge. He has also asked for divorce in the court.. when i received notice from court i was 2 month pregnant with my second child… i begged my husband…. he left me and never returned… a miserable pregnancy. by god ‘s grace i delivered a healthy baby boy on may 4th of 2017. but my hubby has completely forgotten us……. i try everything… prayed….. read bible for godly wisdom… asked the court to dismiss his plea… pleaded his new love….. everything …. but nothing worked… his heart is hardened. so i have decided to let go off him…. divorce him n forget him and to live for christ. so please pray for peace in my life… let no memories haunt me anymore

    1. First, God is not the author of confusion. I believe your marriage was unequally yoked from the beginning. That religion has a lot of strongholds. You have done the right thing and because of that you don’t have to spend your life putting the pieces of a broken man back together. Sometimes we naturally drawn to brokenness but instead of getting life partners we end up with projects…. always trying to fix them. You don’t want that for yourself or your kids. Be faithful to His word and He will certainly bring you through. Change your Worry into Worship. Sometimes their appearance is mot more important than their anointing if they have any. You find completeness in God. In His time, if it’s in His will, you’ll also find companionship. You are beautiful. God created you, and Christ died for you. No man can do any of these things for you.

  2. In the Name of Jesus, I ask God to be my sons righteousness and I pray that God will protect my son from lying tongues and deceitful lips. … I believe that Gods favor and the favor of man will surround my son like a shield. And God will send divine intervention and cease permanently the devils lies and that they have no effect on my sons life in Jesus name. Isaiah 54:17 And my son is restored in Jesus name.

      1. Dear Dena

        Please pray for restoration of my marriage and peace to reign in our home.also adking God to soften both mine and my husbands heart to allow us humility,and ability to respect honour and love each other.

  3. I have had a hard past few years, now I realize I have been basically RUNNING from God most of my life. I have finally found the Man I truly want to be with forever, for the first time ever I’m actually not mistreated by my “boyfriend”
    And I have started trying to listen to God and try to make my life acceptable to him and to raise my 4 yr old up knowing Christ. Please pray for me in this new journey, the devil has been trying to knock me down lately. I could definitely use all the extra prayers I can get.

    1. Lord, I lift Whitney to you today. As she surrenders every part of her life to you, draw her into your presence. Give her wisdom to raise her child according to your ways. Give her peace that surpasses all understanding. Show her the depth of your love for her. IN Jesus’ name I pray, amen

    2. Hello there , the thing of the matter is . The word of God speaks . You are fearfully and wonderfully made . The first mistake is that u said u found a Man U want to be with . God word speaks He that findeth a wife and obtains favor from the Lord . Let God send you who u deserve . Dnt settle bc of loneliness , being mistreated , abuse . Whatever the case may be in your situation . God has someone designed just for you . If you can just wait on the Lord and be of good courage . Wait I say on the Lord . Just ask God to keep your mind , your body and direct your paths . He is able to do just that 😀 I’ve been where u are

    1. Bless you, Sister. God wants us to visit with Him more than we’ll ever know. He removes people sometimes so we can learn where our focus should be. He loves you so much. Remember He’ll forever be the first man there and the last one to leave.

      1. Amen, Sharon! Yes, sweet friend. While I wouldn’t wish divorce on my worst enemy, I wouldn’t trade what I’ve gained for anything this world has to offer.

        Lord Jesus, hold my sweet sister tight tonight. Pursue her relentlessly. Fight for her as her husband should have done. Be near her the broken hearted. Let her know you deeply, intimately. Heal her as only you can. In Jesus name I pray, amen

  6. Please pray for my husband, Scott. He filed for divorce but seems to waiver. Pray that he allows our Lord to change his heart from stone to flesh. He is a good man making bad choices. He needs healing that only our Lord can deliver. Pray for peace, clarity, grace, forgiveness, and understanding. Thank you.

  10. lord i really want to marry Harshi Kher..if u consider her right for me please bless us..guide me to the right girl father..ijnip..amen..

  11. I am asking for prayer for strength and truth to overcome the lies of deceit and false accusations. Life has been very difficult and I know that God has been with me thru some very hard times in my life. I recently left my husband divorced him after a 30 year abusive marriage. He was given every opportunity to turn to Christ for healing but turned his back. He threatened to take my life along with others, stalked me and did take his life just alittle over a year ago. I have come to realize the power of God’s loving arms and the protection that I have received. I am currently in a relationship that has been tested over and over again, health issues, I am requesting and asking for prayer for the lies and accusations that have been placed in my boyfriends head and heart about me. They are so far from the truth. I am a very caring and loving person and would never intentionally hurt anyone in the manner I am being accused of. I am asking that God will reveal the truth to this person and stop satans lies and restore my reputation. In Jesus Name I

    1. Sweet friend, I so understand! I’ve been attacked on so many levels. I’ve been through an abusive marriage, a miserable divorce, and the unexpected death of my ex. I lift you to the Father today, praying He lets your righteousness shine like the dawn and the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. I also pray wisdom over you, that He guides your every step. I pray healing for all you have suffered. And I pray a beautiful future for you. Hold tight to Him. Make knowing Him and walking in obedience your #1 goal..

    2. God will reveal Himself to your boyfriend if he is willing to accept God as his personal Savior. Don’t pray and ask God to reveal the truth, ask God to move or move you. Sometimes you have to lose to win. Winning means keeping your intimate relationship with God whether you have a natural relationship or not.

  12. I was married for thirty years. My husband confessed to having chronic affairs. Lost everything. Took 2 years to heal by myself. Found a man who loves God and understands my losses. Please pray for God’s work to be done in my life and in the lives of my children. Thank you.

    1. Oh sweet friend. I’m so sorry. But what beauty you are experiencing! Lord Jesus, I thank you for Linda’s heart, her desire to walk with you. Guide her every step. Direct her words and actions. Draw her closer to you so she can walk in complete obedience. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

      1. In God’s word it says, “cast your cares upon Him because He cares for you.” God put a hedge around our friend and her family surround them with Your love. Just continue to know once you’re restored He will give you everything the canker worm has stolen and double for your trouble. We love you.

  13. My husband decided he wanted to stray away and I let him. We’ve been separated for a year and a half now. He wants to come back and sounds sincere. I find myself missing him at times but not sure if I want to take him back. My mom tells me to let go but I can’t just take that advise and do that. When I think about filing for divorce something deep in me doesn’t really want to. I don’t know what to do. I have met a man along the way that has money and is willing to do anything for me. He claims he loves me so much and that he is God sent. But I can’t love him. No mater what he does for me I still only see him as a friend.

    1. Whatever you do, do not get involved with anyone until you take the time to heal, to grow, to find God’s plan. I made that mistake, and it just heaped heartache upon heartache. If your husband has been unfaithful, don’t rush back into anything. Let him show his love and repentance. Let him fight for you.

      Lord Jesus, I pray for Que. give her wisdom, direction. Pursue her relentlessly until she can’t resist your love and grace. Heal her completely. Give her wisdom for every step and guide her into the future you have for her. In Jesus name I pray amen

  14. My husband left me and my two toddlers last September. It’s been so hard. My whole life revolve around him. This year holidays have been really hard on us. I have family around me but no one understands the pain and how to help me. I got served with divorce papers . I ask God how could this happen? I’ve a good Christian women. Since begining of last year my husband has started to be unfaithful and making bad decisions and leaving us so many times and coming back. I’m just so crushed physically emotionally and spiritually now. I see no hope my faith comes and goes. Please please pray for me to go through this process with strength wisdom and courage. To never let go of gods hand. I know Satan is robing me of my faith . Like job I know if I stay faithful God will bless me and my beautiful kids. I know it will take time for my heart to heal and for me to learn to forgive him for hurting me. Hardest thing to is he and his family want the kids part time now. I have lost my husband and now feel like I’m loosing my kids because they want to be with there dad always who lives with his parents who are not believers and they allow them so many things. Pray for my kids to that God would sheild them and protect them when they go to their dads place. Thank you ladies for you prayers. God bless!

    1. I’m so sorry. I’ve been right where you are and it’s hard… No words to explain. No one can understand unless they’ve been there. I pray God gives you a vision for your future, a future of hope and beauty. I pray that you will know His healing. I pray for protection over you and your children, that He will give them eyes to see the truth. I pray you have hope and peace well up within you to give you the strength to move forward. I pray His blessings over you. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

    1. The tax collectors office should have a record of you paying. If you pay consecutive for three years the land is yours. I hope you didn’t pay her. We pray that God changes her heart in Jesus name.

  17. Pray for Marriage Restoration for my husband & I. I’m a mother of 3 and have been with my kids father for 14 yrs. We are married and he has left our home to live with his sister. He’s woren down with the cares of the world and feels he hasn’t had time to live for him, know what it is that he wants in life and that he’s just been going with the flow of things. He also lost his dad to cancer a few mths ago and even though he didnt raise him or wasnt to him close, my husband was there everyday to the end.He’s been using negative vices to deal and keeping new company that I don’t feel is a positive male. I’ve been praying for a lot of things during this time of separation and have also made so good changes within myself. I had strayed away from God but I’m back and trying to fight for our marriage. My husband doesn’t have the same back ground as me and has been searching for something to believe in but I think he has given up. He thinks I should just live my life and not worry about him its his fight. I’ve tired to explain we are 1 yet he’s in a stress n depressed mood. Please pray for restoration in my marriage. I can’t speak to my family because even though they were raised like me they will throw in the towel and move on.

    1. I hear the pain through your words. I do pray for you, that God draws you near and holds you close. I pray for a new love, a new peace, a new joy to well up within you. I pray for your husband’s heart to be softened, for the Father’s love to penetrate his heart. I pray for all those broken pieces to be healed and set right again.

      Lease let me know how things are going.

    2. Matthew 14 says,

      If any household or town refuses to welcome you or listen to your message, shake its dust from your feet as you leave. Let him go and move on. If, it were meant to be he will come back. You deserve to live your life with joy, peace and happiness. God will see you through all of this.

  18. Hi Dena, I left an abusive marriage and am now a single mom to young kids. I am finding it so difficult to be a single mom at church. All the life groups and Sunday schools are segregated into “married” and “singles” groups at my age (30s) and its so depressing. All the people I have things in common with are in the “married” groups. Why does the church do this? Why does the church divide single people and married people. I have tried a few different churches and cannot find one where I’m not segregated away from the married people. It’s sad b/c I have a lot to offer in terms of marriage even though I’m divorced. I also would love insights that married couples provide and well as a male perspective on things especially as it pertains to raising a son. Yet, the traditional churches have put this divide out there and I don’t understand it and I’m about to give up on church all together and just tell my kids to watch Veggie Tales or read their bibles and figure it out. Being single in the church is hard. But being a divorced mom of kids is even harder in my experience and I feel like this isn’t the way the church should be. I have yet to find a scripture saying “keep the single and divorced in the church separate…for this is the will of God.” Please pray that finding a good accepting church won’t be so hard and that I won’t be treated like I’m a leper who is out to steal husbands.

    1. I’m so sorry, Teresa. You are so right! I spent six years just attending, never really getting heavily involved. I made sure we were in church faithfully, but that was about the extent of it. The churches that do have singles activities often felt like a meat market which turned me off.

      I wish I had easy answers. I will say some of the less traditional churches seem more in tune with single parents. Most importantly, stay close to God. Let Him guide your steps and lead you where He wants you. Don’t let the church turn you away from God. Be the change.

      Many hugs and prayers as we celebrate our Savior!

  19. Please pray for my friend Ellie. I don’t have all the details yet but she is hurting deeply right now and trying to figure out life necessities and how to continue with the schooling she just started to pursue a lifelong dream which God miraculously provided a way to begin, after discovering that her husband has been “ leading a double life” in her words. Not sure in what way, but she was talking to a lawyer yesterday and is walking wounded with the pain of betrayal. So please cover her in prayer!
