I need guidance and prayers to help me to sort out my life

I need guidance and prayers to help me to sort out my life. I have sinned against all morals of life and God.


I have been married for 7 years and in my marriage we have had some problems and I felt lonely. I connected up with an ex-girlfriend of mine, and we started an affair, which in turn lead to her now being pregnant.

I am at the point where I don’t know what to do. I feel like a total failure.
I need some guidance and prayers on the way forward as I also don’t want my other two girls to feel that I deserted them.

You're not alone

Dear Friend,

All is possible with Christ...turn it over to Him. Ask for His forgiveness and then your spouse. Tell her how you feel about her and your family....admit your error. Your spouse may forgive you in time, she may not. Remember....you are at fault, not her. Nothing in your marriage justified your actions so don't downplay your misguided actions. Irrespective, you need to remain a father to your children while taking complete responsibility for whatever comes to be. Take solace in that you are not the only person who has been in this situation. If you're marriage is meant to survive....it will. However, it may not be on your time or your terms. Be patient....be honest...be honorable moving forward. Continue praying and seek Christian counseling with your spouse if possible. Christ has a plan for all of us....whatever that plan, it's better than any we could have created. I along with many will keep you in our prayer. You are not alone!


God will show you mercy
by: Enoch O. Akanji

As you confess your sins to god, He will guide you and show you compassion, God will turn your life around and you will not be put to shame. He will uphold you with His righteous right hand. It is the plan of the enemy for us to fail God, you will not fail, neither fall nor be frustrated, Say in your prayer that "I stand on the Rock that never fail" God will not fail you. You will find favor in the eyes of men and of God, God will change your story, seek Him fervently, He is a rewarded of those who diligently seek Him, ask your pastor for work in the church of the Lord, I for example, I clean the bathroom and I am a Software Engineer, in this country USA, I am upper middle class, I am the Author of two prayer books, 1, The Magnificent 333 prayers 2, The Magnificent prayers of thanks giving, praises and worship. May God bless you, Amen.

Jesus died for all sin

You are in a tough situation friend. Forgiveness is only a prayer away. He is faithful and just to forgive us, if we ask him to. We need to recognize that it is the Lord Jesus, and his shed blood alone that cleanses us. You can't earn it. But at least you can be sure of his forgiveness.

I won't lie to you. You may have done irreparable damage to your marriage. It will be up to your spouse to forgive you. But you need to come clean and ask for that. To keep trying to cover it up will only make it worse. I'll pray for you and your marriage. God can do anything friend. Either way, go forward and take care of your responsibilities, and God will take care of the rest.

Peace

Repent

My friend in Christ,
Repent, pray and then ask your wife's forgiveness. Ask out of love for she is God's child too. Do what is necessary to repair your marriage and family.
You are in a very rough place, no doubt. Sin has led you astray and God can restore you.

Put God First In Your Life

Your taking the right step here by asking for prayers for sure. I will pray for you that you will turn you life over to god. I know for a fact how hard it is to stay faithful. It is the devil telling you a lie that what you already have is not good enough. Just think about what you might lose. Make a change in your life right now and put god first in your life. Maybe god will give you a chance to work it out if you turn your life to him.
