Oh Lord, I pray that people will make the right choices when it comes to marriage. That they will not go down the road of divorce if issues can be fixed. I’ve seen way too many people who are now worse off because of divorce than while they were married. The children no longer have a set home to be at, for they go from home to home on the weekends or other specific times during the year. And we have children who are now picking sides. Their dad or their mom is now the one they love more or trust. And because of being single, people are drawn into porn, alcohol, and other addictions. There are custody issues, child support, dividing up what is yours, losing your home, which oftentimes lead to more frustration. Surely, there is never an easy out when it comes to divorcing our spouse, and it is not something that You have desired of us either. I just wish people would learn to love their spouse as You love the church, then would marriage’s last. It is when Your love is missing that other things have to fill the gaps. And this is foundation is built upon the sand, and will surely fall when storms come. Then when it crumbles many people are hurt. So, God, I pray that people will only ever divorce when fornication and abandonment are involved. This is what the Bible says and I believe it. And even then, please convict people in their broken state to call upon You for help in prayer. To also see their pastor, and also go to Christian marriage counseling classes for more help. This will only do them good. Lord, I am so happy that I have You in my life. My marriage has been on the rocks at different times, and if You were not there my marriage would have ended a long time ago. Thanks to You, God, my love for my wife is still strong and active. I love You, Lord. Amen.
1 Corinthians 7:14-16 (KJV)
14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.
16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
God hates divorce. However, if someone is considering this, His Word says that fornication or abandonment are reasons for it.
