  25. URGENT HELP NEEDED: Please pray for my wayward husband Frank, who has cheated on me with a vicious, demanding woman the entire time we were married and has now packed up to leave me for good.
    My weak-willed husband has been giving in to his angry mistress's demands for over 20yrs now. She is an ugly, evil woman both inside and out, and has done nothing but insult him and use him for his money - yet he refuses to see that. When I demanded that he leave her for good, he packed up and told me he's leaving me instead.
    Please pray that my confused husband will recognize his angry, trouble making girlfriend as the burden that she really is and to develop the courage to get rid of her for good.
    Please pray that he will see right from wrong before it's too late, and for Gods protection for this marriage that he sanctioned.

  16. Please pray for me. I can not do this alone. I already feel so lonely and I am without real support, the few people I still have around, two family members, can not help me - they have problems of their own and lack much too. I feel like I only bring bad luck to them and feel guilty that I can not help them either.

    I need God's help and guidance right now urgently. Pray that he sees my needs and desires. I pray God to bring the right people in my life and to give me right opportunities and to place me in right situations. I have been so closed, scared and rejected for a long, long time and feel so powerless and overlooked. Pray that God sees me worthy of help and grants blessings of love, health and abundance for me and those close to me.

    My fondest request is for love, marriage and family. It is such a basic need and the one thing that the lack of hurts the most.

We use to be so very close last year and she went all weird with me and sent me a very hurtful message. She hurt me so much and I know I will never get an apology from her. However we have spoken and seen each other briefly but i feel things have changed. I miss my friend so much, the old days where we use to chat but now she shuts me out, i have no idea why she is doing this to me, this is hurting me. I hope she is ok, maybe she is going through something. I wish she would open up to me and reach out to me God. I wish everything was back to normal. It's been months but i still can't get over it, i loved her so much and she meant the world to me. All i ever did was be a good friend to her and she stabbed me in the heart.
