I am asking for prayers for healing
There have been several times since I have been a part of this family, this church, that I have asked for prayers for healing in my marriage, and the way you all have responded has truly humbled me. Each time, miraculous things occurred in our marriage, and years of pain and damage were erased and repaired, Clearly, it took more than just prayer, but I believe that prayer opened that door.
It is on my heart to finally address one last hurt that I know we both have buried deep for so many years, and to put it right, as much as it can be done. Many of you know what that is, but for the ones who don’t, I really don’t want to mention it here. I know that in doing so, I will be opening old wounds, especially for my wife, and exposing them to the light. I will also be exposing parts of my heart that I have kept concealed. I have avoided this for very long because I have been fearful, but I can no longer let that fear hinder what I know needs to happen. I’m still deathly afraid.
So I am asking for prayers for another miracle, that two hearts are healed, that guilt and shame are lifted, and that we draw closer together than we ever have, rather than apart.
I don’t believe God would place this on your heart if He did not have a plan for your good and His glory. I will certainly pray for you and your wife. I am encouraged and uplifted by your first paragraph and give glory to God because of your testimony. Take heart! The battle is the Lord’s!
