Lord, Hear Our Prayers

Please pray that truly, from now on I always live in the place that is best for me supernaturally, spiritually, physically and in every way, absolutely speaking.

I am in need of a miracle. My life is falling apart. My ex-boyfriend who I have felt a strong connection to still love, and knew God sent him for me since before we were dating. (I prayed for him everyday since we met in college.) He recently started seeing someone new but hinted that he still had feelings for me. If given the opportunity I would leap at the chance to be the girlfriend, partner and eventual wife he needs me to be. I am asking for that chance. I recently became unemployed and I have mental health issues and recently finished an intensive program for my issues and I am scared that all this at once is too much for me and I will revert to the unhealthy patterns I was in before. I ask for one more chance with M.; a chance that is permanent and our relationship be one that God smiles on.

Now I know I want to get back together (with my ex) and try even harder to make the relationship work if given the opportunity. I ask myself and pray every day and check to see if my love for him has changed, it hasn’t, and if it is God's will for us to be apart I ask for this deep love, affection and desire to be his wife cease.
