I want my wife to forgive me and take me back

Written to God on December 14th, 2011

Dear God, I come to heart broken and in agony, because my wife has left me and doesn’t want me back. God I have made so many mistake because of all my insecurity. I have cheated on her in the past and I haven’t been able to forgive myself for it. I have accused her countless time that she is cheating on me but she remains that she has never been unfaithful and that she is tired of my nonsense and is not happy. We have a two year old sin together who loves me dearly. I love my wife with all my heart and soul. I can’t stop crying I feel as If my life is over. God please touch my wife’s heart and help her get over the pain and hurt. Help me God get back together with my family. Please God I’m so hurt and can’t think straight. God I love you and need u know more than ever. Please hear my cry and grant me a miracle in Jesus’s name… Amen. Please if anybody reading this please pray for me… God bless u all.

I am going through the same thing. Wife of 10 years (2 small children) just up and bailed on me with no warning. Divorce papers and false accusations and court dates have come. I just want to fix our family and marriage. I am praying for all of you going through similar situations…though I don’t know what to pray for other than that God will heal and keep together/bring back together families and marriages…

Lord, I pray for all the men struggling with their wives. I lift up my own wife to you. The beautiful, sensitive woman you blessed me with – the woman that I gave back to you because I loved her so much, I knew I couldn’t bear to lose her. But you confirmed in my heart that she was the woman to marry. I pray for our son, that you might strengthen him during this time. Help me use this time go outgrow my weaknesses and fully transform into the man you want me to be. I thank you for your faithfullness. I believe you have a plan for us and in due season, you will change my wife’s heart. Thank you for watching over us. Thank you for appointing the day when our family will be reuninted. Thank you for changing my wife’s heart in your time. Help me to be patient and to trust you. In Jesus Name, Amen

i’m feel your pain. i’m going thru the same thing. my wife of nearly 15 yrs just up & left with no warning. she refuses marriage therapy except to help me deal w/the break up. I blame god for this. everyone says it isn’t god that’s punishing/hurting me, it’s her, but how can that be when god controls everything & can change her heart? Plus, the bible says the lord gives and the lord takes away. We had such a beautiful life; we spent lots of time together; were generous with our families, our families liked our spouses, & i don’t understand why it has to end. there was no abuse or infidelity; no financial problems. the only problems were my depression/negativity and insecurities. nothing that couldn’t be worked on, heck was being worked on. she took off her wedding ring within 24 hrs. She walked away from everything, even our pets (no kids) & is already planning on pursing a phd. she’s moving forward, quickly, & i am still crying multiple times a day, can’t get out bed, not eating. how can this be god’s will? how can i not blame god?

I am going through the same thing! I am truly amazed to know that I am not alone in this type of situation and that we are all in this together. My wife resents me and we still live together, but she wants to end our marriage and she also wants me to leave. We don’t talk much anymore or spend time together like I wish we could. I am a Christain man, who made some bad mistakes. But God has blessed me to become a better man, unfortunately my wife does not trust me and wants me to move out. I am holding on to all my faith and hope that I possibly can. I truly love my wife with all my heart and I pray that we all get blessed to get our wives back. I cry, sleep alone at night, every night now while she sleeps in another room and I feel miserable at times, if it is God’s will for me to leave, I will and if it is not God’s will for me to leave, then I will not move out. I give it all to God and I am waiting to see what will happen. God is in Control! We all must pray, focus on God, and do the right thing from now on no matter what. What most of us as men did was fall into temptation as we made the mistake of allowing the devil to get in our ear, but we now realize our wrongs and the damage is now done afterwards. But God will forgive us! As long as we pray, repent and do right from now on. Lastly all we can do is pray and have faith, we can not make anybody love us, so if we can not get our wives back, then God will possibly bless us with new wives one day, if it is his will. But wheather we are blessed with our current wives and God saves our marriages, or we one day get blessed with new wives, we all will know what to do from now on, to make it work and make things right in the future! God bless you all and I will pray for us all. I won’t say good luck, because there is no such thing as luck, just blessings so on that note God bless us all, our marriages, and our families. Best wishes and God bless you my friends!

My prayers go out to all the people posting here. My wife threatened to leave me because I was smoking weed. I told her I was going to quit but she didn’t believe me. (For the record I quit and will never smoke it again, as the Lord is my witness). We have had arguments where I shouted at her and once I made her walk home because she was insulting me and distracting me from driving. I know it was wrong. I really messed up. She told the judge I hit her in the head but exaggerated what happened. Anyway that was a long, long time ago and she never forgave me for it. She left with our 3 children. I know she has been planning this for a long time. And it is out of spite to hurt me and keep me from our children. I love her like all you other husbands who are hurting. Just couldn’t get her to see my side. There was no communication because we both resented each other for a lot of things we didn’t deal with in our relationship. She got a restraining order and is staying at a woman’s shelter. I admitted to the court that I said “I’ll kill you if you call the police.” It was stupid, and I didn’t mean it. I wouldn’t hurt my wife… because I love her. I did bump her in the head though. What a fool I was. I just wanted her attention. Now I’m going to BIP and Substance Abuse classes. but i am willing to do whatever she wants so I can see my three children whom I adore. They all saw how she disrespected me and caused tremendous stress on our relationship with psychological abuse, but the court didn’t consider that part of the story. The physical aggressor is always the culprit in these situations. That’s where they err on the side of caution. No judge wants to let a murderer go free. I’m hopeful that she is getting the help she needs to move on from the hurt I caused and not just being fed ideas by “man haters”. I cannot contact my children for at least three months. until the judge gets a progress report on my therapy classes. I watched Fireproof and read “the Love Dare” and am reading The 5 Love Languages. These all have helped some. But nothing is helping me more that reading the word (the Bible). Be blessed in knowing that God forgives our sins and hates divorce. He will give you the desires of your heart if you make Him the desire of your heart. In Him is ALL we need. I’m not looking for sympathy. I hate what I did. I’m angry that I didn’t know a better way. But I give the LORD my anger and resentment and isolation and this whole situation. I’m waiting on Him for a miracle. Which He can do. Whether it is a few more months or years or the end of my life I will trust in the Lord. He loves sinners when they confess their sins and ask for forgiveness. Restoration will come because Jesus died for all of our sins. Nobody, is so bad he can’t save. Keep the faith!

My wife cheated on me. The pain she has caused me is unbearable. It has been a month since the cheating, my pain is the same as it was yesterday and I believe she is not seeing the other guy anymore and truly wants to make it work. This is the worst pain in my life and it remains constant from the time I open my eyes to the time I lay to sleep. I get so angry, sad, depressed, no appetite, will or power to do anything or focus on anything. I still love my wife and we have a 17 month sweet daughter who I love dearly. I do believe people can make mistake and everyone deserves at least one chance of forgiveness. I just wish somehow this pain will stop and we can be normal family again.

I hope and pray your wife’s pain also goes away and she comes back to you. One advice I would give is since you cheated you now need to give 500% of your affection and love, if she replies with anger, then give her back more love. Love will conquer.

I think the one thing my wife doesn’t understand is that when she gives me love she expects me to give her back love. No matter how I react back she should still give me love, only then I can see she is genuine. I even told her that I will walk toward you 20% but you need to walk 80% toward me, you have to show me that I am number one and you really made a mistake. My pain remains because if I don’t show back love, she also holds back and that is why I am not sure if we will make it in our marriage. I even told her what I need to get over but she doesn’t seem to understand. I hope god can help our marriage too and keep our family together.

God bless everyone on here.

I know exactly what ur feeling it is the most horrible and unrelenting experience I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s been six months since my beloved left but what I finally realised is that it wasn’t Gods fAult or my wife’s fault it’s mine and it stArted years ago. It came to a point where I thought the madness was normal. The only thing that is helping slightly handle this awful, disgusting, dreAdful time has been anti depressants my stomach and my heart still ache unbearably but it doesn’t feel like I have lost my mind and although I still cry from time to time I don’t cry multiple times a day I think this looks more attractive to our wives. May God help us all out of the hole we have placed ourselves in

My wife shannon has been thinking of leaving me. I was very depressed for two months and I never took her out, and I was very distant from her. I didn’t like it when she went out as much as she did, and I always questioned her about who she was with, or if she was cheating on me. She has become very overwhelmed. And told me its getting to hard, and she has thought about leaving. I love my wife so much, she’s my best friend, and I literally feel as if my own soul is being taken away from me. I love her so deeply that I am walking around in a daze, and feel completely broken. Please god. Please help her to see I will be a better man for her for the rest of my life. Help her to love me the way she once did. Help her to remember her vows and that no man can divide our love. Thank you God.

Um hate to say it but it’s your fault that your wife left you. Not only did you cheat, you accused her of doing the very same thing you were doing. God isn’t punishing you, it was your own actions that caused your downfall, and left you in the straits that you were in. You can cry to all the gods you want. God gave us free will for a reason, and it’s not just so we can chose whether or not to worship him. To be honest, I’d think your wife would be better off with out a cheating, hypocritical wretch like you. I know if I was your wife, I wouldn’t tolerate for a moment, and would have the left the moment I found out you had been unfaithful. For if you had truly loved her, you wouldn’t have done it. So please stop your damn caterwalling.

Me and my Wife split up about 10 months ago, I helped her raise her kids since they were 7 and 8 years old, They are now 15 and 16. I had a terrible childhood and a horrible family life. So her family was the best thing that has ever happened to me. I miss them so much and cry almost everyday for them back. She is with another man right now and we are still married. I would do ANYTHING to have them back and have the family that I had before. I have been selfish at times and miserable to be around. I have LEARNED my lesson. I cant stand to be without her and them. I love her kids as if they were my own. Please pray for me to get another chance with her and I WILL NOT mess it up this time. I want to be with them until the day I die. Thank you for reading and praying …. God Bless

It is you that has the freedom to choose, God gives you free will, and gives her free will too, so therefore God cannot make her do anything. It is up to you to win her back.

God sent me to tell you how to do it.

IF you are truly sorry and truly will not cheat on her again, then there is hope for you. If you will cheat again, then you have to let her go.

You have to be the one to apologise to her and ask HER for her forgiveness. You have to do something thoughtful and romantic to let her know you still care about her.

You have to demonstrate to her that she is the one and only one. You also have to learn to trust her.


You have to make sure you do the things outlined in the link above.

She will only take you back if she can know that you do love her and only her and that you won’t cheat again.

She said we do not have anything in common, but we do. I know my problem is communication, but I do need the Lord to bless that she is able to open her heart and see that we are good together.

U are driving your wife away with the constant questions and accusations. Even if she comes back if u keep doing this she will silently hate u or start a secret affair because she will be sick of the accusations. If u want to keep your wife then u have to stop accusing her and questioning her every move or “how long were u at walmart? or this and that” that is smothering her with your insecurity not loving her. Put God first and be a godly man and give her some trust. Lay this at Gods feet and if u will straighten up then if it’s Gods will he will restore.
