Dear Wife, are you struggling to forgive or pray for the Other Woman/ Women?
May this testimony encourage you that the Lord can transform hearts of people, that He is at work, and that when you pray for the Other Person for conviction of sin, salvation, hunger and thirst for righteousness, godly transformation, that she be delivered from all evil, that she come to know the Lord intimately, love the Lord with all her heart soul mind strength, that the Lord surround her with godly people who will mentor her and pray her to Gods kingdom, that the Lord will give her her own life partner who will love her faithfully (whether that’s a single godly man or Jesus Himself),
you are actually praying a prayer that is in line with your prayer for restoration of you and your marriage.
I When you forgive, you are actually stepping towards your own healing, Gods forgiveness of you, and deliverance from torment.
This is the story of former Miss Philippines, Anne Blas, who was an Other Woman in the past but the Lord changed her; she’s now serving the Lord by discipling other Other Women to turn away from their immoral relationships and towards the Lord.
If you have been blessed by Mike Yap who leads the Saturday sessions of Movement for Men (can’t rememebr exact ministry name that disciples men), she is his mother.
Anne Blas: From An Other Woman To Godly Counselor
Reasons You Must Forgive and Pray for the Other Woman:
- Deliverance from torment (physical emotional mental financial spiritual) MAtt 18:34-35
- You will be forgiven for your own sins as well. (Forgive us in the same way we forgive those who sin against us).
- You are praying God’s will that everyone come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9b)
- Your prayer is aligned with the Restoration of Your Marriage:
a) no one putting asunder the marriage God put together.
b) God demolishing immoral soul tie/ bondage/ foothold/ stronghold (demonic/ grounded on sin) of your husband with Other Woman by bringing her into His kingdom.
5. Withholding Forgiveness will constitute disobedience on your part and will hinder your prayers. (Prov 28:9)
Essentially, what you would pray for the people you love most, pray this for the people who hurt you most. May they fall in love with Jesus with all their heart soul mind and strength, surrender their lives to Him and live for His glory.
Dear Lord, please help every Wife here to forgive and pray for the Other Woman (as well as her husband). Remind her that the battle is not against human beings (the enemy is not her husband nor the Other Woman/ Women but “against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
(Eph 6:12 NIV)
May You remove every sin and hindrance that keeps Your beloved Bride of Christ from seeing Your perspective and keeps her from obeying You. May she fix her eyes on You alone as she waits for the fulfilment of the promises in Your Word. May You turn her sorrow and pain from the world, into unshakeable joy and peace in You. May You remind her of Who You are, that You can change hearts and situations. Noting is too difficult for You and no one is beyond Your reach. May You enable her to feel Your presence in a very real way today and every day in Jesus’s name and for His glory amen
“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Cor 10:3-5 NIV
