Prayer Request - Christian Woman with Troubled Marriage
Donna is new to the Christian women's Bible study group. She has a prayer request for a troubled marriage. Let's give her our prayers and encouragement:
I am 42 years old. About 2 weeks ago, my husband said he loved me, but wasn't "in love" with me anymore. He moved out of our home, saying it is temporary, but really won't talk with me about any problems.
He has been drinking too much, but not abusive toward me or my kids. We have 3 daughters, ages 17,11, & 9. The two youngest are, of course, taking it the hardest.
I found out from a "friend" that he is seeing someone, but I honestly don't know how long, or serious it is. He told me Saturday that he wants to work on our problems, but still doesn't know what he wants.
I am focusing on my girls and myself, I am still being respectful, and honoring my marriage, but I am not pushing him. I am simply praying for God's will. I think HE is dealing with him, but my husband is resisting in a mighty way. I am not sure if he is saved, but he has told me he is.
I am believing that God can and will do a mighty work in our marriage. I was having quite a hard time with it, but now I have given it over to God. I cannot do it, I cannot save it, or him. I am going to be still and let the Lord fight for me.
Please pray for me and my family.
Other things Donna would like to discuss with the group:
Anything Bible related. I am trying to study my Bible in earnest, and I just thought joining a group would make it easier.
