I have a prayer request that I know may sound a bit silly, but it has been on my mind for a few weeks now and I really don't know what to do.

Me and my husband are getting along great and without the definite words, "yes I am willing to work on our marriage",from him. I feel positive about our marriage. I don't want to push him, I just pray to God that he will open up to me.

Funny story, other night I prayed that and later on H said, "You know we're ______ getting a divorce", then said something about his anger. I didn't hear it! This was in the heat of the moment and I didn't have the courage to ask him to repeat it! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Mad]" src="images/icons/mad.gif" />

So where is this going? I miss the affection, I miss it so much. I want to tell him that I love him, I want to send him to work with a good-bye kiss, I want a welcome home kiss, I miss going up to him and just hugging him. How do I approach this? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="images/icons/confused.gif" /> We're still intimate and there is some affectiion there, but it's only then. Then nothing is said about it.

When we were first married I wasn't an affecionate person, I don't know why. I think out of my anger at him, I took that as a way to get back at him. He made me mad, I din't and wouldn't give affection. That was along time ago,just something that he brought up when he was no longer happy. Before we started having problems I loved giving him affection. Now I NEED it!

He would ALWAYS yell "love you guys" before he left for work every morning. Our parrot eventually picked it up, now it's the only time I hear it. From the bird <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

I give God all the praise for where we are today. I know nothing is imposssible with him. I just can't quit thinking about it. I would appreciate any advice, thanks! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="images/icons/confused.gif" />

Heavenly Father, I pray that You would restore the love in this marriage. Thank You Lord for this restoration. Thank You Father for being in the middle of this marriage. Lord, I praise You and worship You, You are the Holy ONE the king of all. Thank You Lord for taking caring of this family. Father, I lift them up to You and ask for Your protection for them from the enemy. Lord, please prompt this husband to tell his wife that he loves her; fill his heart to overflowing with a deep love for her. Thank You Lord for hearing and answering our prayers. In Jesus' name, AMEN
