Pray for my marriage, my wife has shut down and refuses to try

My wife separated from me in February and moved out.  She told me she would try counseling and we went 3 times and she stopped going.  I feel hurt, rejected, and disrespected and because of this I have shown anger to her.  Please pray for my strength to get through this regardless of outcome, and for my children.  Please pray for my wife's heart to heal and for God to show her how divorce isn't the answer to our family and that counseling can help us become the family that God wants us to be.  Please pray that God brings her back to Him as she changed her lifestyle.

Dear Heavenly Father,
I would like to ask for healing of relationships for this family.  I pray that they will feel You near and your all consuming love for each one of them.  I’d ask for them to keep leaning on You even when it is tough.  Please continue to work in the heart of the mom and for her to come to know you, if she does not already.  I pray that you would work in her heart and “nudge” her in the right direction.  Please also be with their children.  Above all, I pray that each one of these family members would grow closer to You and that somehow You would receive all the glory. 
In Jesus’ Name,

...Not sure if you have heard of the song “Promises” by Sanctus Real ( or “Restore” by Chris August (, but I would recommend checking them out.

I am in a similar situation my friend. My wife takes the weight of the world on her shoulders and blames me for every bad thing in her life. I know she has been hurt, but it’s too much for my children and I to go through. She says, “I am who I am and I will never change.” I have prayed for her, been to church, counseling, the whole 9 yards. Things have not changed in the 6 1/2 years we have been married. All of my family has tried to talk to her about her ways, but with no progress. I will pray that your wife finds her way. Just remain strong brother and continue serving the Lord our God with all of your heart, mind and sprite. Turn you focus only to Him and He will lift you up! May you find comfort in the Lord.

In the same place brother, I pray for you and stand in agreement with your convent of marriage. It is a special bond to be fought for. Please pray for me and my family also. Rick
