Prayer for a troubled son

Please pray for my son as he is going through a deep dark place. Saten is after him and has been after him ever since he became a christian, he lost his job after 18 years at the same pplace in 2007 and has not been able to find permanent full time work,please pray that his land will sell now, he has to move his horses by Sept. 27 or they will be taken away from him and he loves those horses, they have been a God-Send for him and probably the only thing that has kept him sane and sober for the last 10 years, it is a long story and I will not get into it here, but where he lives seems to be an evil place and some in the community want his land but they do want it by underhanded means, He wants to move back down here closer to family but cannot do so until his land sells, it seems like he has been blackballed from selling his land as they want it for nothing. Please pray that we can get his horses down here by Sept. 27 as we have a place for them but we do not have the funds to hire the people to haul them down here. His horses are a rare breed of Spanish Mustangs and there are only about 300 of them in the whole U.S. Please pray for me to sell my houseas it is to big and is bankrupting me and I do not want to file bankruptsy. We are in dire need and it is coming down to the wire for all of us, Thank You and God Bless You, I am sorry that I am going on and on but this is just a small portion of what is going on. My Son has been fighting Saten and has a strong faith but it is really starting to get to him, He has aged 20 years or more over this..

Return to Prayers for Children

I have been married to my husband for 16 years. The first 10 years of our marriage were absolutely wonderful. We have two beautiful daughters. At the 10 year mark, he had a 6 week affair. I was devastated, but we went to counseling to try to work through it. Things did get better for a few years. We started going to church together, I learned about God, grew in my relationship with Him, was baptized, and became very involved with my church.

I found out that my husband had been using drugs, looks at pornography, even of teenaged girls. This caused a lot of problems in our marriage, and things continued to spiral out of control from there. To add to already huge amounts of stress, I have been dealing with a terrible, progressive illness that leaves me homebound the majority of the time. I have been through 5 major surgeries hoping for a cure, including brain surgery. Throughout all of this, I have leaned on my best friend of 25 years for support and advice. She has been there for me through it all. Last summer, I began to suspect that my husband was cheating again, all of the signs were there. He of course denied it, but it was obvious from his behavior. My best friend told me repeatedly that I should “kick him to the curb because he cannot be trusted.” She did everything in her power to convince me to leave him, but I held on in the hopes that I was wrong. This went on for months. I went to her house unannounced and sure enough, caught my husband naked with her, my very best friend. Even caught red handed, they both tried to lie their way out of it. That was six months ago. I asked my husband to move out, and I filed for divorce, as much as I hated to, I felt it was my only choice. We are separated, and she is separated from her husband as well. They continue with their relationship, regardless of how many people are hurting from it. They both refuse to talk to me. She laughs at me when she sees me because I “won’t get over it”. Our children are on the same ball team, so I have to face them three times each week. They admit they are still together, but act like they are not in public. And to top it off, she is an elementary school teacher in our small hometown. Our entire town knows that this married teacher had and is still having an affair with my husband. They both say that our marriages are ” just a piece of paper” since we are separated. I feel overwhelmed with sadness and betrayal, each day is like torture. I pray and pray and pray for strength, for wisdom, and for God to show me what to do. The pain is almost unbearable. I pray for God to open their eyes, and even pray for their relationship to end. But it has been so long, and each day is harder than the day before. I’m staying active in church, doing God’s work, helping others, praying. It seems like the more I dig in, the closer they get and the more pain I feel. I am not hearing from God, and I feel hopeless.

Please pray for me.

Heavenly Father, creator of heavens and the earth, I seek your holy presence, your might and Grace. As I forever praise your holy name.

I may not be worthy to ask anything as I am undoubtedly a sinner. But I hope my faintest courage will be enough to say my smallest prayer.

I pray for the well being of my son. His feelings and emotions might get the best of him. I pray that you send his path your holy spirit to be his teacher and guidance and heal his troubled young heart and mind.  May your love be forever in his heart and be kept as he grows in to a mighty servant of faith. I humbly ask that you bless him in his school, in our home and anywhere he goes, I ask that you plant a seed of courage that it may grow in a worthy faith to praise you and love until He comes.

I humbly ask everything in Jesus’s name, Amen!
