A call to pray

For all of you out there who care- this is an urgent call to pray for my husband. We have had several in depth conversations over the last few days, and I firmly believe that he is at a "now or never" point. He misses his family and is finding out the life that he has chosen has many downsides. He posed the question to me about coming back but just living an unsaved life. "Does it really have to be a package deal- God and the family, can't it just be the family?" To accept me is to accept my faith. I can not separate one from the other. That is who I am. That is what our children knew him as. To bring him back into the home and tell the kids daddy just wants to be unsaved would be detrimental to their spiritual life!! And how could I ever trust him to not stray when God is the only One who can keep a man's heart from sinful ways. Yes, the Lord and I are a package deal! I would rather be a single mom than live fighting against an unsaved husband- especially one who knows the truth so well but chooses to reject it.

So, I ask all of you to join with me in praying God's convicting power over him. Pray for him to fall on his knees before the Almighty.

We will be praying for you and your husband. I wish I could be there to give you a hug right now! So many of your posts have made me wish I was there with you and able to take you out to lunch and spend time talking and listening. Please know there are those of us here (back home) who are praying for you every day and care VERY much about you and your family! Love you!

I do pray for you all daily, including your hubby, but will continue to do so. I pray that he will yield to the Lord's conviction in his heart, and that you will have the strength to do what you need to do. Good for you to stick with your faith. God is the ONLY one who will NEVER fail you. Jennittia, I'm so proud of you, and I love you and am praying for you!

Dear, dear Jennittia...I will be praying for you and Rodney. Is there a trustworthy counselor who could help you? It seems impossible, I know, but a godly wife can be an incredible influence. "Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications. In the day of my trouble I will call upon you, for you will answer me." Psa. 86:6-7.

I don't know if you remember me from MBBC. You would know me as Andrea Karlson. I just wanted to let you know I am praying for you & praying that the Lord will truly get ahold of Rodney's heart. It sounds like God is really being your strength. You have lots of us praying!!

We will continue to bathe you in prayer. The conviction of the Holy Spirit is a powerful thing. We lift up your husband before the throne even now as you read this.

Okay, I just want to say this and get it out of the way, since everyone is thinking it anyways..
Okay.. I feel better! Thanks for the post and I am so glad that you stopped by my blogg!
Oh Jennittia! I am so sorry that you are going through this, and I know it is a test from God.. I am so proud of you for sticking up for what is right! I am praying for you and Rodney and for the Lord to work in your lives... I am praying for the Lord to give you strength to continue being a Godly young lady who knows right and is sticking with it no matter what and for the Lord to give you peace and understanding and to help your heart hurt a little less. I am praying for the Lord to get at Rodney, to make him miserable in his sin and to want to surrender and do what's right for himself and his family.
The Lord is good! He doesn't always give us the answers we want, but helps us to understand and be blessed by what is best for us.
