    Salvation first

    Are you saved? The prayer of a sinner is an abomination before God (Proverbs 28:9). If you are not a child of God, this prayer may not work for you. Becoming the child of God is very easy: All you need do is to surrender your life to Christ Jesus. To do this, please say these simple prayers of salvation audibly. Please do it right away. Tomorrow might be too late! 


    • These prayers are to be prayed fervently and regularly until God answers you.
    • I will suggest that you observe at least three days fasting breaking by 3pm or 6pm (in the evening) every day as the Lord strengthens you. Better still, if you can do it like Esther; go ahead with dry fasting (Esther 4:16). May the Lord answer your prayers as you pray this prayer of overcoming divorce in the name of Jesus.
