Beloved,
Starting this Monday, the "Restoration of Marriages and Lives" will be posted. We will still being praying and fasting on Wednesdays as usual. By posting on Monday, you will be able to add your special prayer requests so we can see them and rpay for them on Wednesdays.
In the the past, you would get the message snet out by myself, and depending on whe you read the posting, you would or would not see the special prayers our brothers and sisters were requesting. This suggestion came from hopeful98 and I believe the Spirit guided her with this so we can be more of a community on Wednesdays.

She has also graciously accepted my invitation to write the prayer and any thoughts from the chapters of "The Power of a Praying Wife" each week in the "Restoration" post. I will be supplying the same chapter, in order if not title, from "The Power of a Praying Husband".
Thank you dear sister.

Lastly, I am requesting that when you read the "Restoration" post each week, that you let us all know by hitting hte reply button and typing in "Amen". You can of course enter more if you have time and/or if the Spirit moves you. We would like your reply so we can gauge how many are using this mininstry. We have over 150 names on the Prayer Warrior list, but not all (not even half) are still with us in this forum, or maybe even on this site.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to do this.

God's Blessings,
TTSMM

TTSMM,

I truly believe the Spirit guided YOU into asking me to participate with you on posting from the book. I've been praying to God and asking Him to please allow me to be able to help others who are also suffering. In whatever way that would be, I would be willing to help. I'll admit I hesitated a bit when you first asked and thought...What if I don't have time? What if I'm out that night and can't post it? But I stopped myself and thanked God for the opportunity and told the enemy to just LEAVE ME ALONE. Of COURSE I have time to share God's word. I am here to do His work and only His!!

Blessings to All!

I agree with Diamonzzzz...... A WO MEN !! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" />

Sorry not been on in awhile to much going on here. Need prayers for court on the 19th! WH trying to reduce or eliminate my support. Also found out what is wrong with my right arm - it is Kienbocks Disease which when I was injured, shut the blood supply off to the wrist and the middle bone - lunate bone dies. It is a rare disease and not much known for a cure, just surgeries.
God Bless you all

Ohit,

My heart goes out to you brother!!!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" /> It has got to be a difficult job talking when your mouth to mouth. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" /> But from what little I've learned about your wife!!!!!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="images/icons/shocked.gif" />

Since your wife wants to be "CUTE", I want to tell her about the other day when I turned on the TV at 6 am and there was Joyce Meyers in this red outfit, head to toe. My first thought, honest, was where are the horns!!!!! Even her shoes were red. I'm sure she was trying to be Christmasy, but......... Does your wife have a red outfit?????

God Bless

We love Joyce Meyers SG..... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" />

Btw, I have no red dresses, although most people think it is one of my best colors. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" />

Speaking of colors!?? Where is YOUR pix so I can see what we are working with here..... we gotta get you in tip top shape for "her". LOL j/k I am sure you probably clean up just fine. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

How is your friendship going by the way? Have you gone out any?

Christmas time is a hard time for many people, I hope and pray that you all have a good one and that you keep your eyes on Jesus.

I read some place that this time of year is actually the hardest time of year for most people, despite all the celebrating.

I think we have to stop expecting so much at this time of ourselves and others.

Blessings All,
DZZZ

Amen and Amen!!!

Yes, I'm "in" for Restoration thread.

And AMEN, I also love Joyce! QUit picking on her, sg..... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="images/icons/tongue.gif" />

Speaking of "this time of year...." - I might as well post an update:
Not really much to tell....except that I am also feeling lonely. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="images/icons/frown.gif" />

Lately God has been "telling me" - Where are ya, TryingtoSave.....???? that ALL things come to pass [b]IN THE FULLNESS OF TIME. That is HIS time, of course. We think nothing is going on, b/c we SEE nothing going on!! Dangerous stuff, that, to start thinking God's sharing all HIS stuff with us!!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="images/icons/tongue.gif" />

Charles Stanley was speaking about this just this morning (this is what I'm talking about, "hearing" from God): He was saying how the FULLNESS OF TIME was accomplished in Jesus' time before He was born. Everything was in the PERFECT time.....

THOSE people all had to be in place: Mary (through whole lineage Jesus was born to fulfill scripture) and Joseph, engaged at that time in history, in that place. What was happening in government circles, King Herod (who tried to assassinate Him while He was still an infant). Ceasar, who "decided" to institute a census, which caused His parents to take him to Bethlehem (so that the prophecy from 750 yrs before could be fulfilled!)

Also an important point of history is that the Roman empire was very strong, and Koine Greek was the language accepted as the "worldwide language" - the language into which both Old and New Testaments were ultimately translated, so ALL THE WORLD could read the scriptures!

See, everything had to be perfectly fitted together in place. God couldn't send His Son any sooner. OR any later!! PERFECT TIMING.

This has been the lesson God is "speaking" to me. IT WILL HAPPEN. BUT THE TIMING HAS TO BE RIGHT. Other stuff has to "line up" first. I am just to be patient, and trust HIM!

Btw, another point about all this.....I had read a testimony from Lorne and Jimmie Ruth Matthews..........don't know if you've heard of them, but they visited our church about a year and a half ago. They have a website with their story on it.

It seems he "stepped out" on her after 20 years of M......found someone else, and attempted to D her!! Jimmie Ruth stood her ground. Told her H that she M'd for life, and if he wanted OUT of the M, he could just DROP DEAD!! - OK, maybe not so strong, but that was her meaning, I'm sure! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" /> Anyway, after their whole struggle, and getting back together, God impressed on her heart that He wanted her to pray for OW. How did He tell her? Well, they went out to eat at a local restaraunt, and their server was same name as OW!!! Jimmie Ruth was uncomfortable, rude to her, etc. God spoke to her and told her that whenever she thought of OW, she was to pray. Whenever she heard or saw OW's name, she was to pray. Well, I took that advice to heart..........

See, I didn't know many people w/ow's name.......I was safe! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="images/icons/tongue.gif" />
Well, as of yesterday, I have seen the name written - I'm talking IN MY FACE - no less than twice, and met someone w/that name once!!! Think God is wanting me to PRAY for her??? I DO!!! I don't really know what to pray, other than she needs to be saved, so I say a prayer that she will HEAR the Real message in the Christmas story, and it will touch her heart.

Couple that with the "messages" I have been recieving about The Fulness of Time, and I beleive "things are happening." Do I know what?? NOPE. Doesn't matter. I have peace that God is at work!!!

PTL \O/

I am.

I don't pray and fast on Wednesdays. That is why I don't post on this thread a lot. But you are all in my prayers when I pray for marriages. Wed we eat together at church so it is not a good day for me to fast. I look foward to all the praise reports that will be coming in soon. We need to do more of that. I know God has answered so many prayers for me. I thank Him but I don't always post the praise report.

LoveNCare,

Sorry about your arm. I will pray for your healing. Remember Jesus can cure any and all rare disease. True He may chose not to heal the way we want be there will be healing. Paul was not healed of the thorn in his side for a reason.

Did you get your roof fixed?

ll,
Funny you should bring up the name thing. One of our fellow prayer warriors has the same name as the OW I had the A with. Infact she was posting for almost 2 wks I believe before I replied to anything she wrote. But, she has become a God-send for some of her wisdom and insight.
Question. Should I be praying for the OW? I don't give her the time of day at work. I mean I don't say a word to her and when I hear her voice outside my office I want to scream. I just wish I could find a job comprable in this economy <img border="0" title="" alt="[Mad]" src="images/icons/mad.gif" /> .

God's Blessings,
trying...

Keep praying for me and Mrs javaContour. I'm not really good at waiting and leaving her alone.

She called a couple of times yesterday, but not a word from her today. Hmmm.

Hey jdnhaca huh!, I mean jC,

How did you change your name on the posting?

Never mind. I found it. Interesting though, when I started a reply and scrolled down to read your post, your original name was shown.

God's Blessings to you and Mrs. Contour,

ttsmm,

Yes you should pray for the other woman!!! Jesus said that He came that none should perish. Don't you want to be prayed for? Of course. I think that after the judgement and we have been given our crowns, that our memories of this life may be erased. you will see the ow, but won't remember anything that happened here. But that is my own opinion, and have no sciptural reference. But do pray for the other woman. it will change her life for the better, and may lead her to salvation. Remember, you are really mad at yourself. Don't beat her up for that.

Your Brother

sg,
How true. There was a broadcast on Focus... by Dr. Kindell(?) all about forgiveness. Check it out. I'll probably order the tapes (3) on it.
This week I have spoken to the OW, all business related and my heart and soul feel lighter. And I have been praying for her.

God's Blessings,
ttsmm
