For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12
Are you praying for a breakthrough in your marriage today? Never doubt the power in prayer. I pray this Lord’s Day that you will strive to become a diligent prayer warrior for your marriage, for your children, loved ones, co-workers and others that the Lord brings into your life daily.
I just saw the new movie, War Room by the Kendrick Brothers. An excellent movie for you to see. The story line and total emphasis is about a couple having marriage problems, where they were spiritually and how prayer can move mountains. Prayer is a vital tool that Jesus taught us throughout His ministry. Where are you? Are you a lukewarm believer or have a strong personal relationship with the Lord? Do you pray fervently as if someone’s life depended on it? As a believer can we believe we don’t have a responsibility to pray to the Lord about everything for His divine wisdom, guidance and intervention?
…The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. James 5:16
Are you praying and talking to the Lord as your best friend? Do not lose hope for marriage restoration. Never forget that your hope comes from your Lord God! You must totally lean on, depend on, and trust your Lord all the time in spite of any and all circumstances that you will face throughout your life.
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Selah Psalm 62:5-8
When I started crying out for help to remove my pain after our divorce, the Lord had a plan for our marriage to be resurrected from the dead, but He first wanted me to change. He wanted me to learn many important lessons and truths which meant learning principles in His Word that included faith, hope, forgiveness, unconditional love, Armor of God, weapons of warfare and trials, tribulations or hardships.
I know you are hurting as you go through your marriage problems. Be strong in the Lord. Be aware of the battles in your mind of doubt, fear, and loneliness. Has the Lord spoken to your heart or given you different signs of marriage restoration or has He revealed His truth about the sanctity and permanence of marriage in the Bible? If your answer is no, today read the Saturday Testimonies of how the Lord keeps speaking to His children. Then have a special time with the Lord and ask Him to show you what His perfect will is for you and your marriage.
Cry out this Lord’s Day, “Lord, speak to my heart and give me your divine instruction on how to rebuild my marriage Your way.” That is what I did. I repented for my own arrogance, anger, self-righteous behavior, lack of forgiveness, lack of faith, lack of knowledge of the Word of God and lack of unconditional love for my husband. I chose to believe in my Lord, His power and in His Word, regardless of what anyone else was saying to me. But by the grace of God, I had a spiritual breakthrough at an altar, as the Lord spoke marriage restoration to my heart in a church service. That day I chose to believe my Lord’s mighty power forever for everything. Will you?
What kind of breakthrough do you need today? We hear daily of standers who need restoration and resurrection of their dead marriage, who are going through many different circumstances. Do you need breakthroughs in your finances, employment, a new touch from the Lord, physical healing for yourself or a loved one, communication or relational breakthrough with your beloved spouse, children or other family members? Let’s pray this Lord’s Day and be in agreement for a breakthrough in every stander’s marriage and especially in their husband’s or wife’s heart this very weekend.
Pray for a breakthrough in your marriage where there is a strong resistance about doing what God’s Word says and is morally right. Pray against the forces of evil, which have attacked your spouse and thousands of other spouses and prodigal loved ones, taking them captive to do and say things that are out of character, or unusual, for them. They are blinded, deceived and brainwashed from God’s truth.
Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart…and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. 2 Timothy 2:22, 26
“He will deliver even one who is not innocent, who will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.” Job 22:30
You are praying for someone you love or someone you know who has been taken captive due to disobedience, or to pursue an adulterous relationship, or to live a sinful lifestyle. You need to be fervent in your praying, asking God to intervene in the circumstances as only He is able to do. You need to pray with faith, boldness, confidence, tenacity and perseverance instead of having doubt, unbelief or disobedience. How are you praying? You can change today. Cry out to the Lord right now!
Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16
Will you pray for a “spiritual breakthrough” for your beloved husband or wife who has fallen into the trap of sin or unforgiveness, choosing to leave their spouse to live a life of disobedience, not concerned about their eternal destiny?
God can and will deliver, set free, restore and rebuild people from the bad choices and mistakes that they have made in their lives. He gives them opportunity to have godly sorrow and repent, turning from their wicked and sinful ways. Never forget that God sent His only Son to die on the cross, shedding His Blood for all sinners to receive eternal life.
God is a God of love, of reconciliation and of restoration. Our Lord God speaks to our loved ones in a million different ways. Will you pray for a “spiritual breakthrough” for your loved ones every day?
