Prayers of support for you and your wife. Asking for outside help is admirable, it shows your committment to each other to work things out. My best to both of you.

Prayers up, and best wishes for success. Der Prinz and I have been through some *stuff* over 23 years, but still hanging in. It’s not easy, but it’s the right thing to do.

You have my prayers for a successful reconciliation. Remember there were a lot of very good reasons that you two got married in the first place. Try to recapture them. I have been down the other road and it’s not fun.

I prayed for you and your wife, Bob. I prayed you both focus solely on God and the grace of Jesus Christ, not yourselves or each other.

I believe sometimes (many times) we put the other people in our lives in God’s place, hoping they will fulfill us only where God can, and inevitably, they let us down.

Look up, not over, and He will resolve your issues.

Prayers for you and your wife. May the Lord give the two of you an open mind, forgiveness and compassion. May He bring forth the memories of good times and surround you in strength. May He eliminate any strife, anger or hurt feelings. Amen.

You have my prayers and my family’s prayers. Good thoughts going your way!

You can ask God to save your marriage and know with confidence the it is His will for your lives. No matter how bad your relationship is, God can restore that love and respect that was your first love.

Are you a born again Christian? If not then I suggest that you read the Book of John.

I live in Tn., so we have a kindred spirit. You will be in my prayers.

Praying you and your wife will come to see each other through the Lord’s eyes and that your joy will be restored.

Matthew 22:37-39 “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. A second the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

I'm glad to hear that you're willing to fight for it.

My wife and I are both on our second marriage - we were both widowed. Our normal way of interacting is based upon what we can do to make our partner happy. In my case I bring her flowers on (almost) a weekly basis. Every time I see something that catches her eye, I go out of my way to get it for her. We're in our mid-sixties and we have a wonderful sex life.....because we really love each other and are more considerate of our mate than we are selfish for ourselves. All the foregoing only works if both sides play it the same way.

Good luck.

Prayers up for you, your wife, and family.

Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Amen.

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

You will both be in my prayers for the Lord’s blesings as you work through whatever bump in the road you have encountered and that you will come out of this counseling with a renewed and lasting strength and commitment and that your love for each other will defeat all challenges.

An update - our first session went well - we’re seeing a Christian based counselor - he was very positive about the attitudes we displayed in the session. He asked where we were on a scale of 1-10 as far as our commitment to saving the marriage. My answer was 10 - my wife was a 5 - which to me is a building point. Our next session is next Friday. I sincerely appreciate the prayers - I know we can get through this thing.

If I may make one suggestion. Buy the movie called The Encounter with Bruce Marchiano. You and your wife will find it very interesting and there is a couple struggling in the movie probably just as you are. You will not regret watching it.

Jesus saves!

Lord, please be near Bob and his wife and open their hearts to the eternal nature of their marriage. May they contunue their life as one in nuptual self-donation to one another as is Thy will, as was Thy will to give Thyself to us for our salvation.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost we pray, amen.

Bob: This is not related to your prayer request (although I am a Christian and I hope it went well) and I wish they would let me send you a private message but FREEP won’t because I’m too new or something.

I want to hear more about your ghost stories from Hangar 858 at Nellis. Please send me a private message unless you care to post for wider distribution.

I think I also found you on classmates.com, so if you got a similar request for ghost stories there, it was doubtless me.
