Jon & Kate plus 8

Ok, I don’t know if you like Jon & Kate plus 8, but we DVR it so we don’t miss it. We really like the show. I also don’t know if you’ve heard or read the news about what’s going on inside (and outside) their marriage. I don’t need to place any blame or say anything, but I found myself burdened for their marriage, even to the point of being one of those idiots who sends them an email. Seriously.

So as Phyllis was packing her lunch, I said, make sure you add them to your prayer list.

Sometimes we try so hard to make it look like everything is perfect that we neglect the things that we need to work on the most, each other. Things are never, nor will they ever be perfect, but putting the other person’s needs ahead of your own (without compromising yourself too much – that’s a difficult balance) is needed.

So, Lord, I life up Jon & Kate to you today. Lord, they need you, they need you to be at the center of their marriage. In ways only you know remind them that you love them, remind them why they love each other, Lord, protect their hearts from outside influences, Lord remind them of the blessings that come from their marriage. Lord, protect those beautiful children from the outside mean world, Lord. I ask that you give them someone (a couple) that loves you Lord that can direct them back to you, and back to each other. Lord, let no man separate what you have ordained Lord, let no man undo what you’ve done. God, let their lives bring glory to you, give them love, let them have grace and mercy to each other like you’ve given to us. Lord, they need wisdom, and strength to get through all this that only comes from you. Lord, we love you! In Jesus’s loving, healing, MIGHTY name, I pray. AMEN!

Ecc 4:9-12 9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:
10 If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken

Being scrutinized by the entire world via television has to be hard on a marriage, how about Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey?...I actually prayed for them when they were going through it and I'm sure their TV show contributed to the death of their marriage. Praying for Jon and Kate can't be a bad thing. I'm sure they need it.

Prayer is certainly better than criticism...that much recognition and publicity cannot be good for the stability of a family. I will pray
for them...especially the children.

I hear you ... this whole mess has bothered me too. What a way to live ... under a public microscope and all. I feel for the children.
