Matthew (7 Sep 2011)
"RE: Tony's Prayer Request"


Dear Tony,


My thoughts and prayers are with you. Never stop believing that the Lord we serve is the God of love and miracles, who desires that all come to Him. 1 Corinthians 7:14 states the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the believing husband. I’ve personally seen this work, and even though it may go very slow, it is most gratifying. I pray that the Lord draws your wife closer to Himself, and her eyes are opened to your patient and loving Christian character, of which she realizes she will not find elsewhere in the world.  I pray she sees Christ living in you and realizes living for Him and then you is what matters most. I pray that you fall in love again. I don’t know your situation, but some couples have benefitted from the movie “Fireproof”, which has suggestions on how to allow the Holy Spirit to begin to melt cold, hardened hearts. As in Ephesians 5:25-26, we husbands are to love our wives allowing Christ to “sanctify and cleanse” her “with the washing of water of the word”. Speak God’s truth, love, and patience to her often. “The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you; And be gracious to you, The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-26


Your Christian Brother,
