Husband wants divorce

by Jennifer
(Seattle, WA)

My husband wants a divorce. He has agreed to marriage counseling however I feel he isn't fully committed. I believe there may be another woman involved that he calls his "supportive friend" who he talks to non-stop all day long. I am not sure what more I can do other than ask for prayers from as many fellow Christians as possible. I pray regularly asking the Lord to help our marriage. I love my husband with all my heart and I am doing my best to remain calm, be consistent and constantly remind him I love him, reassure him that things will be better with counseling and hard interpersonal work and through God. We have an 8 yr old daughter who is not dealing well with the turmoil and is blaming her Dad and she is hurting as well. I need strength and courage during this rough time and I need the Lord to help strengthen and renew my marriage and help heal my husband's heart, soul and mind. I need the Lord to speak to him in his thoughts, dreams and visions and help him to understand, we as a family, can overcome this rough time and be stronger & more interdependent. He needs to know how important it is to honor our vows we took before God and that divorce or separation isn't the answer. I really need the Lord to be there for us and to help heal our souls and minds. I want to be able to feel God's presence and comfort during this difficult time. Right now I feel all alone and abandon (even though in my mind I know this is not true). My daughter and I will greatly appreciate all prayers and well wishes we can get. I ask this in the Lord's name, in the name of his only begotten son, Jesus Christ and of his Holy Spirit, one and forever. Amen.
