Marriages are fragile and all too easy to break. Our loved ones fail us constantly, but Jesus never fails to hear the prayers of his church. Women in every country are going through the unfortunately familiar pain of failing marriages, and many are finding their refuge in TWR Women of Hope ministries.
“After listening to your Women of Hope program, I cried because your story deeply touched me. I was reminded of my own life, so I called to tell you my story. I had been abandoned, and my husband had taken my children away, not letting me speak to them. You recommended that I pray for him, no matter how great my bitterness, so that he would change his attitude toward me. I did, and little by little, the situation changed. He allowed the children to stay with me during the holidays, which I never expected before. I want to bless and thank you for your advice.”
Through the wise counsel of the production team and the listener heeding God’s command to pray, the Women of Hope French African program was the starting point for the Lord’s restoration of this broken family in Côte d’Ivoire.
Elsewhere in this West African country, weekly prayer meetings centered around our monthly calendar provided the means of transformation for another marriage. An intercessor testified:
“I want to give glory to God for what he has done in my life. Since coming to know you, God has done many things for me in my marriage. My husband was a Christian, but he focused more on his parents’ family than ours. Every week, when I came to your prayer meetings, I would ask you to pray about this. Today, by the grace of God, we are closer than ever before. He told me, ‘From this year on, I will not watch after another person so much as my wife and children.’ Thank you, TWR Women of Hope!”
Relationships are being mended by God every day in Côte d’Ivoire and around the world because Women of Hope radio programs faithfully share his words and his people faithfully pray for one another.
