Hear My Cry Oh Lord by Olayemi Eric Ogunbase

Psalm 61:1-8 (KJV)

1Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah. For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name. Thou wilt prolong the king’s life: and his years as many generations. He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him. So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.

Please forgive my overly bold first prayer request, but this is urgent.

****Please agree with and intercede for me in prayer. My wife of 11 years filed for divorce on October 19th. In my state, divorces can be finalized within 60 days. I know the Lord‘s Will for marriages. To compound this problem, I believe that there are those close to the situation (in and out of our church) who are encouraging her toward this course of action. We have 5 sons, and as a child of divorce, I don’t want them to experience the pain, anguish and issues that divorce brought to me.

Please join me in this prayer. Let’s shake the floor of Heaven with this request!****


I ask you to strengthen Your workers in the Heavenly realms for this ongoing spiritual battle. All glory is Yours, and I believe You will be glorified through the preservation and restoration of my marriage.

By the authority given me in Jesus Name, I rebuke those spirits and people who have driven a wedge and are continuing to try and drive a wedge between myself and my bride!

Father, Jesus Himself said in Mark 10, “What You (God) have joined together, let man not separate”. I’m standing on that Word. Lord, I know that it’s not Your Will for divorce. I know that it is Your Will for us to work things out. Because of this, I claim the victory. I claim my marriage for YOUR honor and glory. So Lord, show Yourself through this process. Let ALL who have seen this situation, KNOW that it was YOU who brought us back together. There will be NO DIVORCE. Our marriage will remain unbroken, both in Your eyes, and the eyes of the civil authorities. Lord, I’ve been praying for us to spend Christmas under the same roof as a family, and believe You are working on that.

Into Your capable Hands I commit this matter. I thank You for the answered prayer and resultant glory that is ALL Yours. Thank You that I can run to you, Abba, and know You are strengthening me for a greater purpose.

  1. Wow, my friend! I don’t know your circumstances, but I can sense the pain you are feeling. As a pastor, I have counseled with many people going through times like this. Seek counsel, if at all possible. Ask your wife to reconsider or postpone until you have committed to at least few counseling sessions together with a Christian marriage counselor. Continue to pray, but also realize that there are obviously problems that need to be addressed on both sides.

    I am not licensed marriage counselor or therapist. I am only a preacher who has seen a lot and been married for 18 roller coaster-like years. There are few marriages that are hopeless. God can work miracles, but people also have a free will. I say that to say this: even if your wife chooses not to reconcile, please don’t blame God.

    I pray things work out.


  2. Definitely praying. I pray that your wife will receive Godly wisdom that would lead her to reconciliation, and submission. I pray that you will be able to love her unconditionally during this time, that you will continue to fight for your relationship, and will seek her return with love, forgiveness, grace, and mercy. I pray that your marriage will be restored, and your passion for each other reignited. I pray, also, that you children would be as shielded as possible from the hardship of this time. May God bless and guide your family to a beautiful reconciliation.
