Hope and a Prayer for Don

May I ask you to join in me praying for Don tonight. For those of you who are not sure of the whole story. Don and I separated almost a year ago after 17 years of marriage. I do not tell many specifics about him on here out of respect for him. However, I have told you that he has been seeing a counselor so that he can try to have a relationship with our kids. (they are mad at him) I just spoke with Don and he is going to see the counselor again tonight. He said to me that he thinks he will talk with Rich about his own issues tonight. Hallelujah!! Don needs God's healing but doesn't know it. This could be the beginning of Don becoming the whole man that I know God has huge plans for. This prayer is not about our marriage at all - it is simply for Don. Thank you!

Love that song! I've had it in my head a lot lately. I am praying for Don, and that soon he will realize and be able to claim this song!

Dear Heavenly Father please be with Don and draw him to yourself tonight. Help him let down his gaurd and be transparent with his counselor. Help him to feel loved, protected and safe enough to do so. We love you Jesus. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Love you,

Heavenly Father,
Touch Don in a special way tonight so that it is UNMISTAKABLE to Him that you love him and can supply his every need. Please tear down the defensive walls he may have built up around himself. Show him that his need for You is not a weakness but a strength.
Thank you for my friend Sheryl and her witness to you that enables her to put aside her own personal hurt and ask BOLDLY for prayers for Don's healing.
We give you ALL the GLORY.

Love to you Sheryl, LINDA

Oh, Sheryl! I am honored to pray for Don. You are NOT thinking of yourself! You are being selfless and that makes me SO honored to be your friend. God has everything under control. I'm praying for healing and restoration for your kids... and Don! I'm also praying for you! What an amazing heart you have for God, the only one who matters!
Love you,
Angie xoxo

I've witnessed the power of our Savior when a man looks himself in the mirror. God is amazing, He is powerful and if we allow, He will move mountains. I'm praying for both of you, that God will see Don's heart is pierced and that he accepts the love, grace and peace He is offering. You my dear, are a daughter of The King! God is with you always! Much love, Jo Ann

Deanna said...

I'm here visiting for the first time! WOW, what a story you have chose to share and journal about... your life / an ended marriage.

You'd think that you'd stumble into a place (blog) that is swarming with NO joy....

YET I marvel that- that is not the case! In your circumstance- I am encouraged by your beautiful heart, your faith, and desire to keep close to HIM, as you keep Don lifted in prayers before the throne of God who is in the business of miracles!!

I enjoyed the visit!

We praise You that Don is going to talk about his own issues tonight
Help him not to get sidetracked or overcome with fright
Be with him Lord, especially tonight
Lord, we ask for Your healing in Don's life
And strength and courage for Sheryl, his dear separated wife
God, do a mighty healing
Your will, your way revealing
May Don know the specific plan You hold for his life
May Sheryl be a loving and respectful wife
In the Mighty and Glorious Name of Jesus,

Jennifer said...

Technonana said...

You Know I am praying for you and this whole situation!!! What a way for God to get Don's attention!!!
Praying for healing and for Don to recognize his need for The Father, and the LOVE He offers!! Then the REAL healing process can begin.

Kim said...

I will be praying for you all, Sheryl.

Suzanne said...

Praying God's will for Don.

Debbie said...

Thanks for keeping us in your prayers. It has already been an amazing time of blessings. I will also be keeping Don in our prayers. God is such a wonderful God. When he moves and blesses it always brings tears to my eyes. Awesome! Talk to you soon, Debbie

Joyfulsister said...

Hi Sis
(((hugz))) I will also join in with the others for Don. I'm so glad he is taking this step, it is so important to keep a healthy relationship with the children it helps them to know they are still cared about and loved. You are such an inspiration and compassionate woman of God!!!
I wonder if Don knows how blessed he really is.

Luv Ya Lorie

Sheryl-I am late, it's Friday morning but I am praying-praying God will boldly work the hardness out of Don's heart and soften him to God's plan and will...like He has done with you.


In His Graces~Pamela
