A pastor who is also a friend of mine has been facing very difficult times since January. His wife totally out of the blue announced to him that she didn't feel any love for him anymore and wanted time apart. Naturally, coming out of the blue like that was a great shock. He tried, of course, talking with her but she was determined that since a friend of hers was going on a long vacation she was going to go house sit for her. She came back to his church each Sunday and they continued to have their traditional Sunday meal together with their grown children and their grandchildren. This pastor attempted discussion and reconciliation and called upon his closest friends to join with him in prayer.
Now his wife dropped a major bombshell by telling him she's having a "relationship" (affair, being an adultress and contributing to adultery) with a married man at the place of business she works in and she's filing for divorce.
This pastor, as well as his children and the rest of the family are in shock, deep anguish, distraught, and feeling helpless in the midst of these revelations that none would have every thought possible.
Please lift this pastor up in your prayers and also pray for his family. I really hate to see him going through such a thing. This pastor is one of the most Christlike men I've ever known. He raised his children well and they are all saved and serving the Lord and have married saved, God-serving spouses. I've never known a man who treated his wife any better than he did. Never in all the years we've been friends have I heard him say a negative word about his wife.
Please take time to pray; thank you.
