Prayer Starts the Healing

Prayer Starts the Healing

Theresa had been married for 15 years.  She and her husband James attended church on a regular basis; in fact, they taught classes in their church on marriage. Somehow through the years the love and respect lessons they taught others were not practiced in their own relationship.  Theresa had been aware of their issues, but never expected James to leave her for someone else.  The shock was devastating, and she was not prepared for the emotional pain that was thrust upon her.  She felt rejected, abandoned, confused and a host of other feelings.  Comfort came when she turned to the Lord and cried out.  She was not instantly relieved, but she knew the Lord is true to His word. 

(Psalms 34:17) The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
