Testimony – God Restores a Broken Marriage

Last updated on:

One of the more frequent type of emails we have received over the years since we have been online is from married couples, where one of the spouses has left the other one for another partner. The one spouse who has been left behind then starts praying to God to bring their spouse back home.

The pain adultery causes in a marriage relationship is extreme and traumatic, as a broken heart is one of the worst kinds of pain you can go through. For those of you who have been on the receiving end of adultery, you know exactly what I am talking about. You feel like your whole world has been shattered and that you will never be able to trust your spouse again, even though you are asking God to bring your mate back to you as you cannot stand the pain of that broken heart.

For those of you who are still praying to the Lord for the restoration of your marriage, below is a powerful testimony we have just received from a woman by the name of Crystal. Crystal had what she thought was the perfect marriage when all of a sudden her husband tells her one day he wants out of the marriage, as he had been having an affair with a woman online.

As you will see when reviewing her testimony below, Crystal was determined she was not going to lose her good marriage over something like this, so she stormed the throne of God asking Him to move to bring her husband back. Here is her word-for-word testimony, and then I will point out a few key things she did to get God to move on this extreme situation.

My name is Crystal and I’m here to let you know that with man it may seem impossible……but with Almighty God…..NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE…

I made a promise to God and to myself that WHEN he restored my marriage, I would testify and tell the world….I would share EVERY single detail no matter how shameful and embarrassing it would be, in the hope and knowledge that I would someday be able to bring some kind of hope for a hurting wife or husband who would’ve been going through what I once was.

I’ll try to be as brief as possible but I really don’t want to leave any detail out….no matter how small, because it may be the very thing God wants to use to inspire and encourage a stander or prodigal spouse.

I don’t want to apportion blame too much here but suffice it to say we had some in-law issues which contributed greatly to our demise….but that is another story and I want to concentrate on how God showed up and showed off in the mist of my situation. Today is March 16th 2011…. My husband of 1 year and 5 months left me on November 30th, 2010… .BUT…. all thanks and all praise be to Almighty God, he is now back home and we are rebuilding a marriage that from all counts and to the naked eye in the natural realm was dead.

As far as I could see we were the perfect couple……went out together…….stayed home together……laughed, joked……..we were like two peas in a pod……of course we had our regular marital problems….no marriage is perfect……..in addition to the above we also….. argued and sometimes told each other some harsh words…….LIKE EVERY OTHER COUPLE……it isn’t right but it happens…..

In spite of all this , I believed he loved me just as much as I loved him……you could imagine my surprise and heart break when one day after a short disagreement……and I mean short….lasting no more that a few minutes…..my beloved husband packed his clothes and walked out of my life…….

All this happened on Nov 30th 2010…..I held off from calling him because I was still upset and I figured I didn’t do him any harm…..he was the one that stepped out in our marriage and on our marriage…..ours wasn’t a physical stepping as in outside sex….it was an on-going 5 month relationship on the internet, with someone he had been previously involved with.

The days went by and he didn’t call so on December 5th 2010….I called him…..he refused to take my calls so I texted him only to be told that he wasn’t interested in me and I should go on with my life….that I should never call or text him again……..that was like a dagger through my heart……I felt as though someone had literally ran a knife straight through my stomach and was twisting it repeatedly…..but that isn’t the worse yet…..

I persisted in calling him that same day and eventually he picked up the phone…he was as cold as ice……I felt frightened even listening to him……he told me….I NEVER LOVED YOU……I AM SORRY WE GOT MARRIED…..I FELT TRAPPED IN THIS MARRIAGE…..I DON’T LOVE YOU LIKE A MAN SHOULD LOVE A WOMAN…..THE FEELINGS I HAVE FOR YOU IS THAT OF A “GOOD” FRIEND……I DON’T WANT TO BE WITH YOU AND YOU SHOULD GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE…..I’M
NOT COMING BACK…….

I have never felt pain like I did then in my entire life……..it is amazing when you are down on luck how quickly you remember that GOD does exists.

I was a regular church goer and I tithed but I still didn’t have that personal relationship with God…..well God has a way of getting our attention in ways unimaginable….and he got mine.

I cried DAILY AND HOURLY……I felt all hope was gone….I mean how do you get someone to love you again when that person is saying I never loved you at all…..YOU CANT….BUT GOD CAN……

I had built my life around my husband and now he was gone……I felt like I lost the better part of me…..I couldn’t eat….I couldn’t eat ….I didn’t want to socialize and I forced myself to go to work…..but God had a plan…….even though all seemed lost……God was turning my situation around even as I was hurting…..what the devil meant for evil God was turning around for good.

I enlisted the help of three persons…….a Prophetess, an Apostle, and a church Pastor…..these were all spiritual people I knew……and strong men and women of God……I knew I wasn’t strong in my spirit and my faith was way less than even that of a mustard seed.

I still cried every day but I also engaged in some radical and spiritual warfare for my husband…..I spoke the word of God over my marriage EVERYDAY and I prayed hedges of thorns around my husband EVERYDAY…..I pleaded the blood of Jesus over him and claimed my marriage in the name of Jesus.

Remember I wasn’t rooted in God so my prayers wasn’t as flowing as other people but everyday I gain more and more strength and my faith began to soar…..I prayed that God would soften my husband’s heart and remind him of the love we once shared……I asked God to send Godly people in his life to speak to him even when I couldn’t and God heard me….

I think I either bought or borrowed every book on marriage…warfare….prayer…you name it ….every website I could think of…….. And I just wrapped my husband up and prayed what ever pray I could even verbatim from some of those same books…….I became like a one man army…..

At times the devil whispered in my ears and unbelief and doubt settled in….I would call my prayer warriors for encouragement and go to God crying and in a few hours would be right as rain and ready again to go up against the gates of hell for my boo. To make a long story short……Sunday January 16th 2011….I got a text from my husband….who accidently had AGAIN on the 14th January 2011…..told me he felt the same way and I should go on with my life.

He said he wanted to talk and wanted to know if he could come by the house…he wanted to know if I could forgive him for what he did and for us to try again at our
marriage…

I had released my husband and my marriage to God and I knew God was going to do something…. but I thought it would be perhaps a Hi hello…how are you….or perhaps a few weeks down the line he might drop in a call or something……….I had no idea that MY GOD was bringing my husband home that day….that instant…

He told me that after he spoke to me on Thursday….he went to God himself and talked to him and asked him to speak and show him what he should do……..he said from the time he said that everything just went crazy…..everything he saw reminded him of me….. when he went to sleep his dreams were constant replays of our life together….. he started thinking about stuff that happened before and after our marriage that were nothing short of miraculous…..

In short…..God was speaking to him all along but he was too proud to just walk back and admit that he was wrong but he wanted to so much….. He wanted to give our marriage a chance and he loved me and wanted to be with ME.

I give all the thanks and praise to God for what he did……it doesn’t matter what your situation looks like….it doesn’t matter how impossible and dead it seems……it doesn’t matter what your husband or wife is planning……..we plan but God is also planning and he works EVERYTHING out together for those that love the LORD..

DO NOT GIVE UP….THE DEVIL AND EVEN YOUR OWN MIND IS GOING TO TRY TO TELL YOU TO MOVE ON…LEAVE HIM/HER ALONE…HE/SHE DOESN’T WANT YOU…..THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO…..THERE IS NO ONE THAT CAN HELP YOU NOW…..DO NOT LISTEN……even in your tears….cry out to God….when you don’t know what to say…..just say JESUS….nothing more……tears is a language God understands and he is going to work it out…..

This isn’t every single detail of what happened there are parts missing…but my short journey has been nothing but incredible and miraculous…but I want you to know that with God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE…

Be encouraged

Notice several key things Crystal did to get God to move on her behalf.

1.  The first thing she did was to fully surrender the entire matter into God’s hand. Notice she said she had faith less than the size of a mustard seed when she first started to approach the Lord for His help.

As we have showed you in our article titled, “Bible Verses on Faith,” the Bible tells us that faith the size of a mustard seed will move mountains. This means that you do not have to have large amounts of faith with the Lord to get the show going with Him. God will take whatever level of faith you are operating at with Him and then move to help you out with your current situation as long as you are directly seeking after His help and are willing to fully surrender the entire matter into His hands.

2.  The next thing she did right was to enlist the aid of three powerful prayer warriors to help her with her prayers to the Lord. This is what is called the prayer of agreement. We already have an article on how powerful of a strategy this is with the Lord. The title of this article is, “Prayer Secret #6 – The Prayer of Agreement.”

3.  Also notice she went into a very heavy seeking mode by searching out every good book she could find on marriage, prayer, and spiritual warfare. The Bible says to “seek” and then you will find what you are looking for. And this woman went into a very heavy seeking mode. I believe when God sees this kind of intense seeking activity, He is really moved, and sometimes that is what will get Him to move to answer the prayer.

4.  Another thing she did when she went on the offensive was to plead the blood of Jesus around the situation. If you have a spouse that has left you for another person, it would be our recommendation to plead the blood of Jesus around them, and then plead the blood of Jesus against any demons who are trying to get in the middle of this, along with pleading the blood of Jesus directly against the person they are having the affair with.

All in all, as you read her incredible testimony, the thing that stands out is her fierce determination that she was not going to let her marriage go, and that she would take a hold of God and keep praying to Him until He brought her husband back home to her.

We want to personally thank Crystal for allowing us to release her testimony on our site, as it will help show others that God can move to restore broken marriages, no matter how hopeless things may look in the natural.

  1. This testimony brought tears to my eyes..am also undergoing the same predicament,maybe much worst because my husband is having an affair with his first cousin. I just discovered about it last Dec 2016 but it seems they started it last 2013. I asked for prayers from our pastor and his wife, they advised me that I should stay and pray for my husband. They made me see the movie War Room and a friend also recommended Fireproof. There are days when I feel so down and defeated but there are days that I feel I can fight the demons inside.

    I want to let go and let God made the impossible in our life. I want him to forgive me and my husband . I want him to see that God loves him so much and He is a loving faithful and wonderful God who sees our heart.

    Pray also for the other woman that she sees the need to repent and turn her back on the wicked way and that she may repent also and mend her ways.

    I also promised that I’m going to give a testimony when God restores my marriage for I know many will find solace and inspiration when they hear my story. Wanting also to establish a women’s group that will pray for one another.

    God is the God of restoration and He is also the great Healer i know he will restore our marriage in HIS time.

    God bless

    • Hi May..

      Sad to hear your story as it exactly same as mine.. i just discovered my hubby infidelity 1 month ago.. he has been forced to break up with her but he keep told me has no feeling towards me, he no longer love me and cant stay with me.. he’s asking for divorce, while i still insist for marriage restoration and all my surroudinh has been advise me to left him after all hurt and pain. I’ve been strugling everyday.. mentally and physically, as he always come home late and keep updating his instagram that he still love the new girl.. my heart is torn and in pain

      I’ve been surrender my hubby and my marriage.. and met marriage counsellor by myself as he dont want cooperate..his sister also support his decision to divorce which it also break my heart..

      God did it with love and will fight the battle for me..
      I keep pray that God will open up his heart and restore our marriage and let us to be compatible again.. He will do the supernatural way to save our marriage, in Jesus Name i pray.

      Now i still waiting patiently, and will share my testimony once he’s back to me.

  2. My situation is a little different. We are not married but have been together for 3 1/2 years and engaged to be married. The last couple of weeks I could really feel the little changes in our relationship, which I completely understood, it has been a tough year for us. I was sentenced to some time in jail for a crime that was not mind. I had work release and saw my partner nearly everyday, but it still left him home alone in the evenings. We followed this routine for 8 months. Now he tells me he can’t get past the fact that I was not there. We started with nothing. we both came from broken marriages and literally has nothing when we started out. I helped him through a very difficult divorce, we have a beautiful place to live and we love each other’s children. On Saturday he told me he just doesn’t feel the same anymore, all he can remember is that I was gone for those 8 months. I have been a good partner, I love him like I have never loved anyone in my life. We are in our mid forites, I waited a long time for him. Yesterday I also discovered he has been texting another person, he said he met her in the park and not they text all the time. So of course yesterday was not a good day for me and texted him and her and so on. He and I did talk for about 2 hours last night. He told me he just didn’t know if he could try. I begged for one more chance. He said he would not leave our home at this time. I love this man so much. God brought him to my life when I needed him the most, I don’t want to lose him. Today I have been calm, cool and collective, just asking him to accept the love I am going to be showing him over the next few weeks/months. I need to make him proud of me again. Please pray for me and Andy.

  3. Hi Crystal.

    May the lord bless you and your marriage. I am going through similar situation in my life right now. I am a christian but never read the scriptures or followed gods way and in the process allowed the devil to enter my family and marriage. The evil came in the form of my wife’s family member and her friend. They always acted good and i did not realize that they had already taken my wife away from me. My wife always acted as if she loved me and my daughter, until i caught her lying and came to know she was having affair. I have also felt attracted to other women but i would never have gone to the limit which would cost our marriage, it could be my inner conscience or the lord himself who stopped me. Since 6 years of our marriage, we always had issues, but deep inside, i loved her with all my heart. But i feel she has changed, her heart has become like stone, not able to forgive, love, repent. It is as if she had turned blind, she cannot realize the wrong she has done, as if she never felt it wrong.

    I realize my mistakes and the sins i committed and confessed my sins. i have turned to the lord, started reading the word of god. I realize the importance of word of god in our lives. It helps and guides us to stay away from the devil and also fills us with peace and love. I look to lord to protect my marriage, at times i feel down, i feel she will never change, the same echoed by my family members but i refuse to submit her to evil. I will fight for her through prayers. I forgive her for all the wrong she done and look forward to receive god’s will for me.

    Please remember me, my wife and our 4 year old daughter in your prayers. Amen.

    • the love conveyed in your statement you realized your mistake and sins you confessed and turned to the Lord. Believe that your wife also will come to realize her mistakes and sins will confess and turn to the Lord, He does not have respect of person. He shows no partiality. If and He did, do it for you He can do it for your wife. Faith moves mountain. Matthew 17:20- Tell that mountain to move

  4. I am in the heat of my own struggles and marital strife. I am in the depressed and despondent stages of the aftermath of my husband telling me he has been cheating on me for five years. Although he states it’s over he has still said he wants to leave me and our 5 children. I am beyond reproach. I am praying with every fiber of my being to restore my marriage. I have put it in God’s hands and have complete faith that Jesus will heal and restore my marriage. I’m just very sad and scared and feel so alone right now. Thank you for your testimonial and hope that with God’s grace and healing hands my marriage will also be restored. In Jesus name. Amen.

    • Look at what your marriage to be, not what it currently is. Start with yourself and perhaps 1 or 2 close reliable God fearing believers in Christ Jesus a group to encourage others and pray against the schemes of the enemy he wants to destroy, steal and kill all marriages. Pray for these woman and men being used by the enemy and drawn away by their own evil desires and lust. God said you can make it! You win, satan asked permission to bring this to your door and God knows you can handle it No cross, no crown! turn this back to God and give Him Glory, satan doesn’t win, he’s not even in the fight. Picture a boxing match. God and Satan. Satan is in the ring jumping around shouting throwing his arms up ready for the fight… so he thinks. The lights go down God walks up and the entire room is lit and the crowd explodes with shouts of joy and praise and then someone yells hey satan is down the fight didn’t even get started. Actually it did, you see we see with our physical eyes and we should have been looking with our spiritual eyes. God already won, which means We already won. But were not God, we have to get into the ring and fight.. This sometimes looks like prayer, fasting, believing, trusting, declaring and proclaiming! Reminding ourselves who we are and whose we are! Professing loyalty and assurance/reliance on the one who never fails!!! Guess who walks away with the Belt???? You do, hey whats your title (your name) proclaim it

  5. Hi Crystal, thank you for the encouragement. My husband and I have been married for 18 years this year we have a daughter who is turning 16 and a son who is eight. I am Hindi speaking person married to a Tamil. We have always had problems in our marriage and things happened we sought spiritual help we were told that the problems stemmed as a result of what my husbands family were doing sometimes we believed and other times we did not. The temple eventually asked us to go to church for help. My husband assaulted me and left home taking my kids to live with his mom. With everything that was happening to me spiritually I thought I was loosing my mind. However I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my saviour much to the disgust of many of my family. They used witchcraft against me and my husband and children. My husband together with his mom tried to get me out of our house, cell my car that I purchased on his name, I lost my job and they had my children. I was begging for money to pay my expense as my husband left m with all the debt. On 4th August 2016 everything was revealed to me in a church full of people what my mother-in-law had done on my wedding day in the Hindu rituals that were performed she used witchcraft. This session was also videoed, a copy I have on DVD. Since I have given my life to Jesus and so have my children. The Lord deserves all the praise and glory because he has sent any army to support me, HIS army and the Lord has blessed me by giving me a job, my son and daughter have returned home, we are still in our home, I still have my car taking the kids to school and getting me to work, with the little I am earning I can pay my debt and provide a meal for the kids and I nothing lavish. By the grace of my God every time my husband has gotten a lawyer, the first did not take his case and the second when I saw her in court I put my Bible on the table and told her that she was the Devil Advocate and she was not going to destroy my life, today she is in hiding because she defrauded her client. My husband told me I used witchcraft and when I told my Pastor he just laughed. That is the power of the Lord Jesus Christ. My husband has since heard the audio of the session in church. Every time we make progress towards each other something negative happens. I still give God all the praise and exalt His Name because I believe and stand in faith on his Word that what he has put together nothing shall put asunder. I know that my husband, children and I have been proclaimed for His Kingdom and my children and I stand on His Word and promise for our lives.

  6. I just want to take this time to say thank you for sharing this beautiful testimony. I’ve been through this and was struggling and asking God even on tonight what he wanted me to do because my husband walked out November of 2015 and has not come back home he only stops by every so often any calls and texts at random times and I asked God what did he want me to do because I’m praying fast it trusted God of stood in the Gap and he’s still gone. And so tonight as I asked God that question he in return directed me to this website where I read Crystal’s testimony and her situation everything she said 95% of what she went through is exactly what I’m going through right now so I think you because it has encouraged me to stand and not throw in the towel and I’m not going to give up much much much love to everyone on here and they’re encouraging words be blessed

  7. This has been encouragement. I read her story everyday. My husband left 2 WEEKS ago and refused to talk to me. He has a new phone number and I have no contact with him. He has sent messages through his grandmother that it is , he is not coming back and wants a divorce. We both said harsh words to each other out of anger. I had to surrender my husband and my marriage to GOD. I am praying for God to soften my husband heart and to restore our marriage. I know his family is probably happy and encouraging him to divorce me…but I known GOD has a better and other plans. Continue to keep us in prayer as this is a difficult time right now. I claim my marriage in Jesus name.

  8. to God be the glory , it is very strong testimony dear Crystal , i think you for that wonderful testimony and i think my God who make me to search Avery website for solution to restore my marriage we were happy, just but because of another women our family broke there is a lot to tell the world and am heartbreak now ,this testimony real inspired me . i was giving up, i left my two baby girls to my mom to take care of them and come to Asia just to forget and make my master degree now i do not know it was it was a mistake or not ,now i can not even able to study well ,i wish, i God will resort my church marriage against , i have great hope to our lord Jesus Christ ,since 2016 we are separate ,now am iger to hear from our lord so that one day i will testify like that , and was my promise to God , your prayer only to me ,

  9. My husband of almost 16 years left me in December. We have 3 kids and he says he wants a divorce. I believe it is the devil working through a midlife crisis with my inlaws not helping the matter. My husband and his family all need Christ. Please help me pray that he will not be able to get a divorce from me and that somehow he can pass through this trial with out any more harm to himself or the children.

  10. God is so GREAT! Crystal your testimony is blessed! That a very strongly encouraged to whom who want to fight for our marriage and family. I am so encouraged too from your great testimony.

    I want to share my situation,I having the same storm now,or maybe is more worst than it.
    Me and my wife already married for about 3years,is still a very new married we had. We have a very adorable child that God gave it to us. She is 2yrs+ now. One thing we are believer of Christ. We didn’t really submit ourself to the Lord,we just do whatever we want without ask before the Lord. Ended up,my marriage has been destroy by the devil. The devil use many way to attack us,especially when we had arguement that time. I open up for the devil. I speak something hurt her with the word “divorce” to my wife. For more than 3 times I spoke it to her. And now my wife finally make up his decision to divorce with me. When the time she made this decision,I was gone crazy and don’t know what to do.. I was like I lost everything in my life.. she left me with my daughter together. I am so regretful and I just want to hold back this marriage and my family. But her heart was so harden. She can’t forgive me. I tried to repent before her and ask for forgiveness but still isn’t work. I am so lost.. and devil try attack my mind. I have a mind of suicide thought. That time I really want to give up my life what I did until I ruined my own marriage and my own family into disaster. There comes a very soft whispering on my ears side. “Don’t give up”. Suddenly I am awake! I believed that is a voice from God. First thing I do,I called my pastor to guide me for I am a very new Christian. I told everything to my pastor. And finally I know the truth and set me free after on that day onward.
    I repentance before the Lord for forgiveness. And God is a forgiveness God. He still with me all the time I am fighting back for my marriage and my family. I started to read the Word of God,and pray daily. Invite the Holy Spirit will guide me to reconciled back to my wife.
    With His Words and promises that I able to cling on and never give up. I praise be to God. All things I can do through Him who give me strength (Philippians 4:13)
    For I don’t know what the outcome is but I still trust the Lord until the end. Because Jesus Christ is the beginning and the end. He is the final say. Being confidence that he who began the good work in you,he will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6)
    Even now I am still waiting for the Lord. I know all things is POSSIBLE for him. (Mark 10:27)
    Now my situation is still seems hopeless. My wife and daughter was left me about 7months,she already hired a lawyer and open file for divorce with me. And she was asking me to sign with her. I told her I still need this family and you. Let me to ignore you and I believe Jesus Christ will restore back our marriage. Is look strong when tell her this. But my heart was so afraid to losing her and don’t know how to endure it. She was so mad when I ignore her and she said very harsh message to me “you will lost your daughter and will never see her again” that moment my heart was like broken into pieces (can’t describe the feeling) I keep pray in tongue. And I don’t fight back as according to the Word of God,
    Do not resist an evil person.If anyone slaps you the right cheek,turn to them the other cheek also. (Matthew 5:39)
    I be patient and wait for God who acts in behalf for me. I will lost everything now just temporary. I know God know what I am being through now,when he tested me I will come forth as gold (Job 23:10)

    Today 1/3/2017 , I surrender it all to the Lord. For what I cannot change now,let go and let God who work for me. For now on I really need more help with Holy Spirit for not letting me give up on this difficult situation. I hope that my worst turn to good and share our Almight God glories. Amen.

  11. Hi
    I just wondered if there was an update on Robert’s situation? Crystal thank you so much for your testimony it has encouraged me. I was raised in the church and gave my life to the Lord at a young age. I prayed and prayed to get married and was married late on in my 40’s. My husband is the only man I have been with. I am so heartbroken, I came home in November and he had moved all his things. We had been having problems there was an ow involved. This is both of our first marriage and it has been hard we got pregnant then lost the babies, I lost my job and now this too all on 2016. I ask that you would pray for Luis that he has a radical encounter with the Lord and come back to our marriage. My hope and desire is to have a family before I’m too old and for my husband to really know God and not religion.

  12. I have not spoken to God in many years…my husband of six years left two weeks ago, Christmas Day to be exact. Our marriage has been a roller coaster. But, God brought us together when we first met…why would he take him away from me? Yes I admit, I wasn’t a good wife, I brought my past and childhood into the marriage, I verbally abused him and sometimes slapped him. But, I never meant to hurt him. I was calling for help and love. I have been a lost soul for many years. On the other side of things, He’s a very cold man, but he’s a good person. We both brought a lot of baggage into this marriage. To make story short, he left and told me we were done and he’s not coming back. He has been thru a broken home, a wedding and a funeral within the past two weeks. I know that is a lot to take on, and I wish I would have been there for him like a wife should be. But, he kept me out. However, I still love him and I want to restore my marriage. I have admitted I was wrong, I have apologized to him and his family. But, he has blocked me or changed his number, doesn’t reply to emails nor texts and I have no clue where he is. We are both military officers, so finding him and getting him to talk to me is not a problem. But, I don’t want to do that. I have faith that God will help him find his way back to my son and I and that we will be able to fix our marriage. I just need one more chance. Please pray for my marriage. This situation has really opened up my eyes and realize the God is the only solution.

  13. I thank God for using you Crystal, in the name of Jesus!!! this testimony was right on time for me! I am growing weary with the neglect and emotional abuse my husband is putting me through. We come from different cultural backgrounds as well as his family not approving of our marriage, the enemy is trying to destroy are marriage in many ways. My flesh and the enemy is telling me he want change let it go but the holy spirit is telling me keep faith and to hold on….

  14. My husband and i have been separated for almost 2 months. He told me one day that he was not happy anymore and was leaving after a confrontation. He left to his mothers house. He is having a relation with another woman and now she lives with him. He does tell me he thinks of coming home everyday but feels nothing that went wrong will change. I am standing firm in my marriage and praying him home. We have three daughters who miss him so much and cry to him that they want him to come home. I pray the Lord opens his eyes and heart to the truth. I also have been searching and reading anything that is biblical to restoring Marriages. Pleas pray for my husband and I. Pray for me to have the strength not to give up and continue to fight this battle with Jesus by my side. I love my husband very much and just want him to come home and my marriage restored. thank you

  15. Crystal, Robert and everyone else

    God has led me to this site for I am going through what everyone else is going through.

    My husband (of 30 Years) and I have separated. 2 years ago he was talking to another woman from work on the phone and through text. I mean 4 to 6 hours a day and I found the phone bill. He was very remorseful when I showed him the phone bill to the point he cried and told me he was sorry. I made it very hard on him for the next 2 years to the point that he wanted to separate and now he says he has entertained the thought of divorce. I do not want to lose him he is my best friend we always shared everything until things started going bad.

    3 weeks ago rededicated my life to the lord, and now everything is going crazy. Yesterday I told him that I will no longer be trying to get back with him that I gave it to God and he will be taking care of it. I told him not if we get back together but when we get back together that God can fix this and he told me God had a lot of work to do. I am surprised at how strong I was when I told him and all day today. But I really gave it to God.

    I am a control freak, I want to know when, how and why and I want it now so I am in territory that I have never been in before. I just read anything I can find, I read my bible, this blog and I have turned praise music on today why I work.

    I will be praying most of all these prays through out the day and night for quite sometime. I will be praying for all of you and I ask that you do the same for me.

  16. Hi Edgardo!

    It sounds like your wife is yearning to know and experience the love you have for her. She might not be as mature as you are in her faith and you will need to take the lead!

    I had a VERY difficult marriage with an unbeliever and the videos I heard on love and respect changed my paradigm. I encourage you to listen. Your wife would LOVE to know you are trying to meet her needs through research! James Dobson featured this author on the radio and he said it was the greatest response from a program that has ever been aired. It was especially loved by the men, because it was an excellent source explaining to women about how God created men! So there will be a benefit for you if your wife will listen. Don’t share with her about that morsel. You will be listening for learning about how to love your wife. He’s very funny and animated in his teachings. He’s so fun to listen to. He name is Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. The Book or Tapes are called Love and Respect. The Love She Most Desires and The Respect He Desperately Needs. You can find a You Tube Video to hear a segment or overview but I recommend you watch the videos together. Maybe have friends over too! Make it fun! It is entertaining and very helpful!

  17. Hi. I had a similar situation happen to me. After 1 week of marriage my wife left me for another man. I was devastated. While this was going on i read the book, the love dare and i was seeking God more then ever. I remember crying my eyes out every time i lookied at our 1 year old daughter. I got plugged into a church and i prayed to God that if he helps me save my wife i would give him my life. Not long after that, my wife was going to church. She became part of the worship team and i am still in charge of the power point and opening and closing the church. That was 8 years ago. Now we’re facing another crisis. My wife has told me she doesn’t love me anymore. Im not affectionate, and unromantic, and don’t do date night. I realize that i don’t want to be that guy and that i am not perfect and she should be strong for the both of us when I’m weak, like i was strong for her when she was weak. This is so hard to go through this. i pray but i feel like God is not moving. I love God, and i am praying but its so hard to wait on him to work his miraculous powers in this storm.

  18. Hi crystal it was great to read what god has done for you.it gives me so much hope that my marriage will be saved through prayer.my wife left me 2 years ago she said she loved me but was not in love with me.i wont go in to the whole story but we were so in love we dated for 10 years then got married we had our ups & downs like everyone.my wife was always bothered by her weigh so she wanted to walk so i walked everywhere & gave her all the help i could but it never bothered me as i saw her heart not her size.she then lost all her weight & started hill walking with a club but soon after that she changed.i no she met someone but i never said.anyway she left & blamed me for all.she is gone 2 years but up on to 3 month ago she kept coming back saying she wanted to try again but would stay a few weeks & was gone again.then i would hear that she was dating someone.she came back in june & i thought we were getting on well till i came home one evening to find her watching those filthy movies & when i ask her about it she up & left.i dont no what happened her as she was always a good person & we went to church every sunday i dont no her any more with all her lies i really dont no what happened my wife my my girl.i built my world around her & i cant get the words to describe my love for her.its 3 months since i saw her but she is dating someone & i seem to go around with a broken heart every day.the only peace i get is if i go to bed at night & sleep.i do cry alot but i also pray alot for i never would have got this far on my own without god.im glad i came across this site as it helps to no that god can do anything & that he is all power.i pray alot on my own as i dont have anyone to share my prayers with so maybe if u didnt mind you could say a prayer for me & my wife.godbless & thanks for making me stronger in faith.

  19. this was a beautiful testimony. The issue I’ve been having is that no one wan’t to pray for my marriage with me. Everyone, especially other believers, keep telling me to give up and move on. My life is empty without my spouse. I love him and can’t imagine my whole life without him. I don’t want someone else. It’s been 3.5 years since he left for another person. We were together many years and I’m still standing and praying for our marriage while he is living with ow and acts as if I’m a stranger. I know the person he is now is only a shell of who my spouse use to be. I pray and war every day but I don’t see any movement from my spouse. He will not talk with me and I’ve not seen him since he left. I suspect the ow is not wanting him to because she knows how close we were. We are in divorce proceedings but it keeps getting postponed. It’s so discouraging to have all the strong believers I know constantly tell me to move on. I begin to doubt and feel ashamed at my insistence on fighting for a marriage no one believes in …maybe not even God? I keep asking the Lord to let me know what he wants from me and to give me a small sign of His will for me and my marriage. The argument most believers have is that God can do anything but that he can’t take away free will and my husband has free will. Should I give up? I can’t seem to stop praying but this has become too hard….

  20. Your testimony bring joy and hope to my heart. My wife has left our family (3 kids 4,6,10) I been praying to God and crying for his help, I ask him to please talk to me. Today has been a low spiritual day for me wife birthday and I can’t Hugh her or kiss her and wish her a happy birthday, my kids cry asking when is mom coming back and it breaks my heart.
    Please pray for my family kids, wife and me. I know God will restore our marriage in his perfect time, it’s just hard waiting.
    Thank you all for praying.

  21. Please pray for my marriage it 40 days since my wife left the house along with our 1.8 years old son.I am married for 2.6 years after my marriage i quit the job to try my luck in the middle east because the salary was earning was very less and i never had a house of my own so i thought if i get a job in the gulf i can save and also have a house of my own i prayed to the Lord before i quit my job and my inner voice was telling its a good decision and i will prosper by Gods grace but nothing happened i was unable to get a job abroad ie in Gulf nor in my own country i feel like an illiterate having so much experience . so many people tried to fix me a job but nothing happened and even while i am typing i am jobless its been 21 months without a job.
    we were blessed with boy baby within a year of marriage. my wife is a nurse by profession and she quit her job because she was above to join a hospital in Gulf and that never turned up .My wife and her whole family started to think i am not willing to work and not trying for a job which was not true . she stopped having physical relationship with me since one and a half year and then stopped talking to me we were living like strangers and so many time i literally fell on her feet begging to talk to me but she never cared at all . Only joy what i had my son with whom i used to feel happy . I never forced my wife for physical relationship thinking it should happen in true love and i knew all this situation was due to unemployment . it was 24th June 2016 i had a couple of drinks in the night and i saw my wife praying i got angry and i asked you do not want to talk to me but you are praying to god and in anger i raised my hand on her. next day i reconciled with her we hugged we went to church we prayed she told she will go to her parents place and she went with our son . After 2 days she called and told my mom she is coming back to take her belongings from the house she came took her belongings and told never in her life she will return back . I was out of city doing some technical course . I went to her place and pleaded her to come back she told she will not divorce me but she will never return back .I asked her pardon she told i ruined her life that hurt me a lot because before marriage when we were in relation she had one more boyfriend and when i had caught it she told sorry and i had forgiven her and now she is saying i have ruined her life . and her brother threatened me that if i come to meet her then they will take legal action and her whole family supports her decision and she has told her friends that she will never return . she has blocked me from every means so that i cannot get in touch with her . I am in a helpless situation the pain i am going through since then is un explainable i cannot concentrate in my job hunt my health is effected with constant chest pains i am totally broken i want my wife and son back i also need a job and i also need your prayers

  22. Hi Crystal, I am Crystal too. I am desperately looking for God’s help to bring back my husband to me. Surprisingly I was looking all over the internet for prayers to restore my marriage and I came across your testimony. As I was reading your story I felt that God helped in finding the answers in your story. My husband also left me on 29th of November 2015, and till now we are apart, and tomorrow 29th of May will be 7 years of our marriage. I love my husband alot and he also loves me, but satan is trying to keep him away from me. Please pray for me and my husband James so that we can once again live togather happily. And I will pray for you Sister and also for other.

  23. Thank you for this powerful testimony! I have been a terrible husband to my wife and a bad role model to our children. My wife and i are separated now. During this separation God has really been dealing with me. I have been dedicating my life to his word and prayer. I have faith that God will restore our marriage! God has a plan for us all. Plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future. Glory be to God almighty!

  24. Thank you so much for sharing your story, Crystal. It gives us hope to know that God really does care and will restore in His time. The things your husband said have been spoken by nearly every departing spouse. Satan dies the same evil over and over, but we somehow open the door for him. Please pray for my beloved husband to open his heart fully to the Lord, surrendering fully to Him. I took him for granted and he left after 40 years. I prayed for all who asked here for prayers.

  25. Hello, I am a believer-wife struggling with my 8 months marriage with unbeliever (but believes in Jesus too), 6 months pregnant. Over a frustration, anger, resentment, and a fight, my husband beaten me with belt, kicked me and stormed out of the house after damaging things around. I am staying with my parents. Things have not been same once I became pregnant (it was always his choice) and we started living in this new flat for 2 months. He is not showing any remorse though I miss him each day. My parents have told me to stay apart till death as he would create more trouble in days to come. I contacted God’s man told me that this marriage was not God’s will. Its my second marriage and this man knew my past but yet in love married me. I don’t believe God has not approved this marriage. I believe God will restore my marriage if its His Will else I don’t seek another divorce.
