This evening someone contacted me and opened up about the state of their marriage. Infidelity, porn addiction, neglect and my heart just broke. I remember this couple so well when they first married. I know when they married, the wife never expected to pass through any of this and I am sitting here thinking that marriage is more than a notion.
The state of the marriage is so bad that separation looks like it’s on the horizon. But I’m glad the wife contacted me because I feel I should join forces with her in prayer and fight for deliverance.
It’s so important that a person not get married if they have addictions. I don’t know what it is about men, but they never want to reach out and get help. Deliverance often calls for outside help, but that is not for me to figure out.
My heart is broken because of the possibility of this marriage ending and yet another family being broken up and a father not present in the family, BUT GOD! We will fight through prayer and fasting! Please say a prayer for this family that God would heal and deliver.
New International Version (NIV)
9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
