Father, we pray in the name of Jesus Christ Who was crucified, who was buried, who rose again and who is alive at this very moment.
Thank you that I can give thanks in EVERYTHING for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning me. I Thess. 5:18.
Praise You, Jesus, that I am a prisoner of hope (Zechariah 9:12), not a prisoner of my circumstances. “Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee.”
Thank you that God’s Word says in Song of Solomon 8:6 that love is as strong as death. Nothing but death will break the marriage covenant I made with my mate.
Praise You that since I know my marriage is healed, I will disregard the symptoms and walk beyond my sight...faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Heb. 11:1)
Because I do choose my own emotions, I praise You, Father that I choose hope, not hopelessness. I choose victory, not defeat. I choose life not death. I choose love not fear; joy not despair.
Holy Spirit, I thank You that from glory to glory You’re changing me. II Cor. 3:18.
Father, I ask You to place a wall of fire around my mate and place Your glory within his midst. Zechariah 2:5. Thank You!
Thank you Lord for the hedge of protection that Job prayed around him, his house and all that he had on every side (Job 1:10). With this hedge, Satan was not able to take anyone in Job’s family captive at his will. Thank you that this “hedge” around an unfaithful partner causes his/her lovers to lose interest.
I base my prayer on Your Word (Matthew 19:6)which commands that what You have joined together, let not man put asunder. (Hosea 2:5-7). Thank You Satan is not in control, he even has to get clearance from God for whatever he does, and his actions become God’s dealings in love. Father, You are looking for an intercessor to make up a “hedge” of protection…that You should not destroy. (Ez. 22:30). Thank You that this hedge can cause troubles that will prompt a return and as Hosea’s wife said…“I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now.” (Hosea 2:6-16)
We know that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. (II Cor. 10:4-5). As we bind Satan and build a hedge of thorns of protection around Mark, we proceed to “cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and we bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” (II Cor. 10:5)
Thank You, Jesus that You are building Your resources in me to be able to receive Your blessings.
Thank You that whatever finances You send to me, it is enough!!!! Thank You that with Your help, I won’t say it, I’ll pray it. Thank you that in covenant relationship, I give You everything that I have, I don’t withhold anything that is me – in return as my covenant Brother, You promise to supply all my need according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
Praise You, Jesus that my mate HEARS You, and according to Psalms 83:16, I pray You will “cover their face with shame, so that they will seek Your name.”
Thank You that I KNOW that someday I will praise Your Name that you allowed me to go through this.
Father, line me up with Your Word. I plead the blood of Jesus that cleanses from all sin, sorrow, and sickness on my entire household.
I know that deception is the fruit of leaning on my own understanding, so praise and thank You Lord, I can stand on Proverbs 3:5,6. (Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.) Since the Lord is
directing my path, why do I wonder what happens along the way?
Habakkuk 2:3 says that” the vision awaits an appointed time…at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Thank You Jesus that You are never late.
Genesis 50:20 tells about the things that were meant for harm to Joseph, but because he chose to forgive and walk in obedience , You God were able to turn that thing around to be used for good. I thank You Father, that You shape every circumstance for my good…..and I know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to Your purpose. (Romans 8:28)
GOD ALWAYS KEEPS HIS WORD!

Thank you for sharing your story with the world. It continues to be a blessing to my marriage.
Hi Jimmie Ruth….we shared a few emails a few years ago when I became a Stander (unexpectedly). Well, he’s been gone nearly 11 yrs now, and married to the OW for about 8 yrs. Let’s just say that ‘standing’ has become more difficult. The thoughts loom, daily. Maybe I misunderstood the Lord. Maybe the Lord really doesn’t intend to restore us. My husband dumped me three times over the span of a 34 yr relationship. Maybe God has a ‘three strikes’ law. I still want to see the miracle…..BUT GOD!…..what if I’m barking up the wrong tree? There is zero contact with the ‘ex’. He walked, and I (to him) ceased to exist. Clearly a narcissistic personality. The OW is OLDER than him, and he is her FIFTH husband. Clearly the OW has issues too. I’m a bit of a rebel Christian, ornery….the thought of standing for God’s way, not the worlds way, appeals to me. I just want to make sure it’s what HE’s asking, and not just something I want. It’s all for HIS glory, whatever the outcome. How does one stand, when the stand is so long?
