Prayer For Guidance & Strength & Insight

Please Lord, I know that you have a place for me here on this earth and that everything has a time and place. During my recovery time after the babys death I did falter with my faith and at times I still do. That is a very hard ordeal to place onto any mother along with unanswered questions leading to the end of my first marriage due to memories. Now all of these years later still suffering from the loss of my son and having to struggle in almost every aspect of my life.

Thank you for my wonderful job and my son that indeed god sent. It is everything outside of those 2 things in my life that are terrible, husband that wont work or keep a job and expects me to basically support him or have an answer or solution for anything that comes our way, but yet not hard hearted enough to have him leave our lives knowing i can do bad enough on my own with our son. Lord, I am having all of these medical problems now and still expected to do everything the same and take up the slack. I just dont know if i can handle anymore on my plate. I use to look at myself as a very strong person and once its all written out i am nothing but weak internal and external.

I have many sins that I ask of your forgiveness for and a few might be unforgiveable, but I will continue to ask for it. Please help me along my way Lord and guide me. I dont know what else to do and am hanging on by a thread on sanity at this time.

Dear Angela,

I am sorry you have to deal with such a husband. Is there a reason he is being negligent in providing support to his family? If not, then I DO think that your husband needs a reality check - there is NO NEED for you to support him AND take care of everything else. You are his wife. Not his mother.

I suggest that you talk to your priest who may be able to advise your husband against neglecting his responsibilities.
I would definitely also call his family members and friends and have them talk to him about how his lack of support is wrong and unfair to you.
If he has a psychological problem, he needs to seek professional help.

Have you talked to him about how this is affecting you? What is his response?

Hi Angela,

I'm sorry you're struggling right now. Life can definitely be hard. I have medical problems and have experienced several hardships and losses, too, so I understand how difficult it can be to maintain faith through so much pain. I'm glad that you're still hanging in there, though, still praying and reaching out. I've learned that while there is a lot of pain in the world, there is also a lot of love and goodness. So many people out there really do care, including me. :)

I will pray for you, your family, & your husband. I will pray that your trials end and are replaced by joy. Do you go to church or any type of community group? Support is so important! No one gets through life alone. It can be scary to reach out but very helpful to share your story and learn that others have gone through similar struggles and flourished. Also, just from the little bit of your story that you've shared, I can tell you are definitely not a weak person! It sounds like you've survived a lot. I understand what it's like to feel weak and tired when you've been knocked down a few (or more) times by life. But, while your human body may feel weak, those challenges are making your soul stronger.

It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

I have a feeling that you're a beautiful person. I'm also sure that God will forgive you of all of your sins, that there aren't any things we can do that are "unforgiveable." God's capacity for love and forgiveness is far greater than anything we can imagine, it's limitless, so do not worry about that.

Tonight I will pray that you experience God's peace and love, that it will heal your heart and give you strength, and that you will continue to feel His presence throughout your life. We go through so many things here on earth, but all the struggles are only temporary. One day we will return "home" and all our sufferings will end. In the meantime, all we can do is try to live a life of love, do the best we can, and forgive ourselves & others when we/they fall short of our expectations.

I hope tomorrow's a better day!

Thank you for letting me pray for you

Hang in there. Let go and let God be your guide. it sounds like your situation has no where else to go but up. I am so sorry for what you are going through. You are not weak! Take that out of your mind. Continue to trust in the Lord. He is good. He gives us his guidance and stregnth, especially when we least feel it. Sit quietly and feel his love and peice surruound you. I will pray for you and for your husband that he might become the Man God has intended him to be.
