After 25 years of physical, mental, emotional, verbal, spiritual, financial and sexual abuse, I left my husband for the 2nd time. I’ve been gone for over a year. My 3 teen and adult sons have taken their father’s side and refuse to spend time with me unless I visit their home, which I do nearly every day. My husband has “changed” and I am the “bad” person for not taking him back, or so he, my children, my Christian friend and the counselor I just saw for the first (and last) time last week tell me. He refuses to sign the divorce papers until I tell the kids that I’m divorcing him, because he said I’m the one who wants this, not him. He takes them to church and prays with them now. I’m so glad for this, and I hope for all of them that the “change” is for real this time, yet even so, it’s too late for me. I’m struggling with my fear of him as well as my ability to stand up for myself, even though he hasn’t even yelled at me since I left, I’m terrified of what could happen. I also fear that my kids will further alienate me. My husband and my friend told me that the paralyzing fear that I sometimes experience in his presence is “conviction” because I’m “running from God.” My spirit is so broken. I feel like I have about 2 good days and then the rug is yanked out from underneath me again. I loved the book. It’s now full of highlight marks. I consult it like a best friend. I want to be brave, I want to be happy. I want to live like Papa intended.

2nd guessing myself
Prayer for hope for my daughter
Hi there thank you so much for praying for us. My husband joel and I (lauren) are having a rough time. He admitted to abusing me emotionally and verbally but now he says he isn’t and that I’m abusing him. We have a three month old daughter Kathryn who I love so much. Best case would of course be for him to get help and see the hurt he is causing but I’m losing hope for that. Please pray that my daughter can have everything she needs in life and not suffer from any abuse, and can have a safe and secure attachment. I love her more than anything in the world. Thank you.
Prayer for healing & wisdom
I have been married for a year and experienced emotional abuse and recent physical abuse. As Dr Ramona says: abuse get worse over time. And don’t want that, so I don’t know if I should divorce before that happens. When my husband is upset he told me that I’m over exaggerating and even if we separate I’m always going to feel miserable. When he calm down he is more apologetic and want to change. This have an impact in my health now and I ask please pray for me healing and to God to give me wisdom to handle this situation.
Thank you for your prayers…please pray that i wait on God and allow Him to show me the right path. My second husband has been using power and control through emotional abuse for at least a year, if not longer. Then he got so drunk that he grabbed me by the throat and held me down like that until my children heard the commotion and came upstairs, witnessing the event, yelling at him to get off me and, ultimately, calling 911. We have been separated since. He wants to reconcile. He has been sober for over 5 months, going to AA and is signed up for domestic violence counseling. He is a Christian, but he’s much younger in his faith than I am. I don’t know what to do. I’m still grieving…I get angry with him and I miss him. It’s a lot to process. I pray to be obedient to God, to love and respect myself, and to walk the path God wants for me.
Thank you again.
Being a friend to the abused
Lord guide me this week as I befriend a friend who opened up for first time and poured her story out to me and now has incredible decisions to make for her marriage. Our hearts as broken, our minds our overwhelmed, her head is swimming in thoughts. And her soul is not saved. Please slow me to continue to share the gospel with her and know what to say and when to say it. And raise up prayer warriors for all of us going through what none of us would have ever dreamed in our life.
broken hearted and feeling alone
I recently finally decided to break away from an abusive marriage. although not physical the emotional scars and brokenness I just want to be free of the sadness, hurt and feeling of stupidity with this horrible life altering decision I made to marry and the failure of this marriage.
I came out of a dark marriage that caused so much pain and trauma. I have forgiven and God has healed me in so many ways. I just want continuous peace and for my children to be in amazing God centered relationships when the time comes. There’s still moments when the piercing memories will strike out of the blue, I pray for covering, sometimes it can be during moments I am exhausted, please pray for strength, releasing of worries/pain, and armor not only over myself but my family as well. #1 healing for my ex husband. Thank you, God bless

Marriage & Health
Please pray for my wife and for our marriage. Our marriage is in trouble without God’s intervention. My wife has a serious illness and on top of that, we’re awaiting the results of a biopsy cancer test. I’m trusting in Jesus, but I think she’s lost hope. Thank you for your prayers.
My next steps
Please pray that the Lord will provide an exit out of this abusive situation.
