Hello brothers and sisters,
I am asking for prayer for me and my husband. We have been married for a lil over two years. Things have been really hard betwean us. We have been seperated for almost two months due to differances with parenting and financial problems, and much more…. God knows.
I was told by him recently, he has divorce papers and he is deciding to divorce me. I have told him I don’t want a divorce and I believe we can work it out.
I have been asking The Holy Father for direction and if it is His will to change his mind and heart on his decission and to give our marriage another chance.
I have repented before the Lord and asked for forgiveness for my faults.
I need a sign a concrete answer from the Lord. I am crying every day, and I have been trying to stay prayerful. I am confused and can’t think straight. I don’t want to act or be selfish. I want my husband and also my brother in Christ to be happy and grow strong for the Lord and for our family.
My husband says nothing will change his mind in this decission. And that I need to stop praying for our marriage. I believe he is upset because he has been out of work for almost a year and he can’t provide the way he wants to. I have prayed that he finds a job and have tryed to be supportive. We have lost so much this year. And have been bitter towards each other and hard on ourselves.
I am thankful for God’s love and for everything he has given me.
Please pray for us.
May God bless you
