SELECTED STORY: A MARRIAGE RESTORED

“I was waking up in tears and going to bed in tears, and even after speaking to him about family time, things didn’t seem to be getting better.”

Anonymous
My husband and I have become very distant over the last couple of years. He has been studying, and I have struggled with feelings of resentment where he has prioritised work, study and other people’s needs over mine. I have also struggled with his love affair with his phone and all things WhatsApp and Facebook. At one point I was waking up in tears and going to bed in tears, and even after speaking to him about family time, things didn’t seem to be getting better.

When the 40 days of hungering came, I went to a friend’s house and we wrote out a prayer plan to seek God’s help in this difficult situation.

God heard our prayers. My husband has now started to come home early most days - by 8 or 9pm, rather than 11pm or midnight, and he is having more conversations with us as a family and is more ‘present’.

I have had a really positive couple of weeks and feel refreshed in the Spirit. I had really missed my closeness with God!
