Last night I discovered that my husband has been lying to me for the last year of our marriage about his struggles with pornography. We have been married almost a year and words can not describe how angry, hurt, decieved and disappointed I feel right now. Prior to this, I completely trusted my husband and often raved about how blessed I felt knowing that I could trust him to be honest with me. Obviously I was wrong. I just ask for prayers that I can have the strength to find ways to help my husband through this and that we can build back the trust that has just been torn from our marriage. Also, that he will lean on God and on me to make the changes needed to finally confront this problem. My husband is a good man and he is a Godly man. However, somewhere along the line in the last year the pornography has become more important than our marriage and has moved him to being dishonest….that is not the man I married. I need my husband back, and I know that God is the only one who can help heal this marriage. Thank you all in advance!

Dearest brothers & sisters in Christ —- I am a mother of a 15 year old boy ( 2 girls 10 & 8 in age ) I was told my son had sex with a recently ex-girlfriend. I am asking for PRAYER for my son in his dealing with losing this girl & also in his telling me the truth of his having had sex. My son knows what he has done is NOT right. I am trying to deal with the sex issue by praying to the dear LORD everyday /in every way. My son has asked for GOD to forgive him & help to guide him. My son has ask for my forgiveness ( and that I have given …)
I know my son is having difficulties — we all know our lifes troubles we have gone thru dealing with our growing pains of PUPPY LOVE— but, please have this situation in your prayers if you would.
with Christian Love……………..JULIE

Please lift me and my husband up in prayer. He (wrongly) thinks that I have had an affair. I am innocent and cannot prove it. My past is quite checkered and this has caused him to doubt me. . . He says he is fed up with my lying (I am NOT lying) and is going to move out. Only God can fix this.

Please pray for patience and peace for me. My husband was in Afghanistan for 7 months and not even two weeks after his return, we have a housefull of his family and I’m getting so stressed out. Initially, it was supposed to be 3 or 4 people but 6 people came. Initially, they were supposed to stay until Monday or Tuesday but somehow it was changed until Friday or Saturday. I’m frustrated because next week I start college again and we (my husband and myself nor my husband, children, and myself) haven’t done anything together. All of these people being here is stressing me out. Not to mention feeding 11 people when I’m used to cooking for 5. I need peace because I just sit down and cry because I wasn’t consulted about any of the planning for this. Everything was discussed with him and his mom and I was left out. I just want to get through the rest of the week without having a nervous breakdown or causing anymore tension between my husband and I. Thank you and God bless.

I am in need of prayer. I have been married 7 years now. I don’t love my husband anymore. During the 1st 6 years, he was controlling, mistrusting, aggressive and selfish. Things got better after a while, but then he lost his job. He looked very hard to find one, but got depressed and starting looking for other things to occupy his time. He hooked up with women on facebook, MySpace and Craigslist. I found documents he saved on his computer where he had sexual conversations with women and even tried to work out time to meet someone. That was the final straw. I asked for a divorce and asked him to leave. Six months later he is back at home. He is trying to do little things to help around the house. He is no longer as aggressive and controlling as he was before. He did find a part-time job, but takes for granted that its ok for me to take care of all the finances, mortgage, daycare, car notes, insurance, everything! He also expects me to forget that he betrayed my trust and continue our relationship like nothing happened. We tried counseling to talk about some of the issues. He was unwilling to go after 2 visits. We tried talking to each other, rather, I have tried to tell him what I need to be happy. I’ve also asked him what he needs from me. All he can say is that he wants a normal life. I don’t know what that means. He told me that there are several things wrong in our marriage and that I need to fix them. He wants me to change. He wants me to be more loving. How am I supposed to do that when I don’t love him anymore. I don’t know what else to do and I’m tired of trying to fix everything, compromise everything. I’m tired of trying to show love, when I don’t even feel it. Having him leave again would hurt our children so much. But it will hurt me worse if he stays. I don’t want to hurt his feelings, but I don’t want to be married anymore. Please pray that God reveals the right thing for me to do.

I have been married for 12 years, and my husband has been addicted to pornography even longer than that. Years ago, when I first found out, he was looking at it daily. Now it is every few months, but it still breaks my heart. I already feel inadquate as a wife and mother because there is so much to do and so little time. I have always felt like we have had a good life, are good together and he is my best friend. To hear the lies, only find out what he is doing when he gets caught, that is a deeper pain heaped on top. I found porn on our computer yesterday. He lied to me for a while about it. I have no fight anymore. I do not know what to do. I love him so much, and he is tearing my heart out with his addiction. He often says it is not about me, but how can I believe that? How can that be true? He will look at pictures of other women instead of coming to bed with me.
I find so many resources for him, which he mostly doesn’t read, but he never reads. There is nothing out there that speaks to what I am going through, that I have found anyway.

My husband and I could use your prayers today. We had a big misunderstanding and neither of us reacted well to the other.

Thank you!

Please pray for my husband and I. We have been married about a year and half now (and have a 4mo old little boy) and we are going through an extended time of spiritual/mental trials. We desire to be unified with each other and to follow The Truth and right now it seems like these things go in different directions. I’m thankful to God for the wonderful husband He has given me and I know God with help us through this time…. we’re just feeling a little at our wit’s end. How do you grow together in Christ as a married couple? If any of you ladies have recommendations, I’d be glad to hear them.

I have been married 4 years and struggling with illness 2 years. I was using a walker up until a month and a half ago. I had a surgery for endemitriosis and my nerves just went crazy and haven’t been able to use walker since. Right now i’m in a rehab hospital trying to get back on the walker. This has been marked with setbacks and frustrations. The rehab center is 3 hrs from home. This means i don’t get to see family or friends often. I have been here 3 weeks and it is going very slow. I have made friends here but I miss home and get discouraged. Please pray for me and my marriage through this time. I know its hard for my husband as well.


Jamie F November 18, 2010 at 5:12 am

I have been married for 15 months. I just accidently learned that my husband had a marriage that he did not tell me about. It would have made no difference in my feelings for him, we met in mid-life. I am hurt and shocked that I was not told. I know love keeps not records of wrongs but I am struggling with the fact that he did not tell me. So I need prayer to have a forgiving heart.


jessicaorris November 26, 2010 at 7:55 pm

Please pray for my family. I’m not going to pray for my husband to be the husband I want him to be but rather the husband I know God wants him to be. He is not a Christian and I am. This is causing problems in our vision, direction and goals within our marriage. It affects everything from parenting to finances. Please say a prayer for us. Thanks so much!

Please pray for my husband and I. I love him with all my heart. We have our “discussions” like all married couples. But there is one issue that continues to break my heart the longer we’re married. Prior to us getting married (almost 3 years ago), my husband was friendly and polite to my parents…even taking them out to dinner. After we got married, things took a sharp turn. I’ve tried to wrack my brain, and ask him what had happened to cause that. He won’t give me anything specific other than he just doesn’t like their personalities. When he talks about them it’s always negative. My parents only comments are to tell him that they love him and miss him (his work schedule prevents him from coming to visit them with me). When they do see him, their interactions with him are always positive. They try talking to him and show kindness.

I’ll admit it has gotten better as the years go by. When we go down for holidays, he now give them eye contact again when they talk to him and he’ll be cordial, sometimes almost friendly. However, It’s pains me that he ignores their calls, texts, gets ill with me when I ask him to come down. They frequently indicate that they miss seeing him and comment on how they want to know him better. We met with a counselor to discuss this and I understand that I have to give him and my parents time to form their own bond. The counselor did indicate that my husband should try baby steps with them….but it’s hard. I don’t badger him over it and don’t bring it up anymore. But my heart is breaking. It gets to the point where it affects my feelings towards him when family issues come up. I avoid bringing up things with my family (good events or not) in fear he’ll say something hateful and it’ll hurt my insides. I pray every time I think about it. But I’ve gotten to the point where I feel hopeless. I love him so much and my family is so dear to me. It hurts me to think it’s going to be this way for the rest of our marriage. I love his family because simply….they’re his family. I want to give them respect and kindness because…they’re my husband’s family. So I’m puzzled at why he would treat my family this way. I sometimes wonder if God hears my prayers about this. Even though we’ve only been married 2.5 years, I just don’t have any hope that it’s going to get better. If anyone is out there, please say a prayer. Maybe if there is one of me reaching out to God, something will change.

Please pray for me and my husband (only in the eyes of the Lord now, divorce was final April 25th). We were married 24yrs last September and he left me in November with no warning. When he left his parents supported him by letting him move in with them and giving him money to leave and file for a divorce. I have been told that his dad is behind it and that if his dad were to die today my husband would be back home by morning. Until about 4 yrs ago my husband was a faithful Christian who loved God and struggled with his faith and his job interfearing with his worship of the Lord. 4 yrs ago his parents moved back home from FL and his dad became very involved in his life to the point of eating breakfast with him 3-5 times a week and lunch with him anyday he was home and I was at work and the days that they didn’t see each other were on the phone together. I was told I made his dad mad at me and that he would stop at nothing to get me out of his sons life. This apparently happened over 10 yrs ago when my husband almost died. My husband has turned against God and all that he was raised to believe because of his father. I have prayed over and over again that God send my husband home, there is no one else so the divorce is completely against Gods word and I fear for my husbands life and his soul. I don’t know what to do or say, I still don’t know why my husband left but I know that each time we went to court his dad showed up to make sure he went through with it. When I confronted him about it he admitted that his dad was there for just that reason and the only thing my husband cared about was if I believed the story his dad was telling that there was another woman. People who are close to my husband tell me he regrets leaving and that his dad is holding something over him to get him to stay away. Please Pray that God removes the hold his dad has over him and that he returns to the Lord and his family. Thank you and God bless each of you.

Please help me pray, my uncle, who is the only intermediary between me and my wife right now, is back in town, and he said he will talk to her, and try to bring her around, please pray that the Lord uses him to speak to her heart. Please pray that Jesus open up communication between she and I today. Please pray that the Lord helps with my unbelief. Please pray as hard as you can.


Adri July 14, 2011 at 10:59 pm

Please pray for my husband and I. We have only been married for six months and I might have made the biggest mistake in my life. I read his phone messages and one of his emails and then confronted him about the email and what he wrote to another women. Only to find out it was a big misunderstanding but now he is really hurt, because I didn’t trust him. It is true I was so insecure that I just didn’t feel good enough. I felt that he was gonna realize any minute that he didn’t really want me. I know I was wrong and I did appologize but he is really hurt by what I did. Please pray for him to forgive me. But more then that for me to know my worth lies in God not people and what they think of me.

For all of you struggling with broken marriages, wanting restoration . . . I understand. I’m in the same situation as a lot of what I’ve just read through in your stories. Please, let’s all pray for each other’s restored marriages. God ordained our marriages, and even though He gives free will, let’s pray that we (and our spouses) decide on God’s will over free will. I’ll pray for you, will you pray for all of us too?


TamiOlive October 19, 2011 at 12:08 pm

Im at my wits end. My husband is addicted to Porn! He views it online, he views it on disc. He is rarely intimate w/ me. He says its because I’m out of shape. I have prayed and prayed. I just dont know what to do any more. I want to break all his movies & put a blocker on his personal computer which he passcode protects it so I can’t get on it. It makes me sick to my stomach when I catch him or see that he has used it. It breaks my heart. I feel violated. I feel disgusted. He always blames me. I’ve tried talking to him about it. He replies that is my business and its between me and God. Yet he makes no effort to stop. I’m finding my self lonely and in vulnerable situations. I just dont know what else to do. I can’t talk to our Pastor or even friends. If I cry about it he tells me to stop being a baby. Gets angry at me for catching him.


Annette October 21, 2011 at 5:50 pm

I need pray for me and my marriage. I feel like I have become very critical. I cannot seem to get out of cycle. Also, feel stagnant in my relationship with the Lord. I am in desperate need of prayer. I feel like I am dying on the vine. My discouragement is high. Thanks for taking the time to pray for me.


Angie November 16, 2011 at 8:05 pm

Please, pray for my eyes, I suffer from glaucoma. Thank you very much.


Martha December 10, 2011 at 5:15 pm

Pray for my marriage.. please. I found my husband looking at porn again…This has been on and off again throughout our 36 yr marriage. But, I don’t know how to go on.I cannot bear for him to see me, I know I will never measure up. I feel so ugly and old.


The Generous Wife December 11, 2011 at 5:47 pm

Martha, just wanted to encourage you. Please understand that his porn habit really has nothing to do with you (you are beautiful). It’s, unfortunately a common problem that our society makes easy. Please do check out and look at their resources for wives. Lori <


Cheryl December 27, 2011 at 4:40 am

Does anyone have any counsel on how to give yourself physically even when you’re not right in other areas and you don’t even have devotions with each other? How can I give myself when I “feel” no love?


Sarah February 1, 2012 at 9:56 am

Hey I wanted to ask for prayer. A friend told me about this site. Just been married a few weeks and we are really struggling to consummate our marriage. We were both faithful to not have sex before marriage, we are in our thirties, and although we have had some fun and made steps it still feels like a disappointment to both of us… We have read some good material, talked and prayed but I jsut want God to help me be a good wife in this and know what to say and what not to say. Thanks


Renee July 21, 2012 at 1:29 pm

My husband and I could really use some prayer right now. We are going through one of the toughest times in our marriage. In every aspect, and it is heart breaking for both of us. Money is tight, I lost my job, our children are young, and we just moved back home after being Active Duty military.
Thank you


Portia November 3, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Prayer please for my marriage. My husband told me this morning that he wants me to move out, that he and our two teen sons would be better off. He thinks I would be happier. He feels I don’t want to be married to him. We have been through a whole lot this past year with our 15 year old son, and my spouse blames me for being too permissive of a parent when our son was young. My husband accuses me of not aligning with him to our children and he has had enough. I have apologized for those times. I want to be one with him. I have prayed over our married years to put down my pride and only with humility and grace can we survive. My husband has never allowed Christin our relationship together. We each have our own personal relationship with Christ, but not a home or marriage where Christ is the center. God is in the restoration business. I know only HE can restore the years the locust have eaten. With out Christ I our marriage we will flounder, struggle and fail. Please pray for my husband to give Christ a chance to put us back together.
