My husband just told me he's divorcing me. That there's nothing I can do to change his mind. He has become so cold & bitter towards me. I have suffered from depression & I admit I treated him very cold during that time & had lost my feelings for him, but I received a miracle & God restored my love for him & brought me out of the depression during a healing service one day at church. At that time I felt God calling me to prayer over our marriage struggles & upon my obedience to it God has revealed himself to me multiple times & I truly believe it is His will to restore my marriage. Things really seemed to be going better, now this happens. My husband is adamant that he could just never love me again. That this is impossible to fix. I know in my heart that all things are possible with God, however I'm human, & it's hard to be optimistic in any way feeling the hurt & pain I feel at this moment. I truly felt God's will was to restore my marriage & here I stand in the midst of complete chaos. I'm heartbroken & devastated for my 6 year old daughter as well.

This is my 2nd year teaching kindergarten in Richland 2 in SC. Teaching, especially little ones, has always been a passion that has lived strong in my heart. There is nothing else I have ever wanted to do and up until now, I have loved every minute of it! I have a group of really challenging students and parents this year, and for some reason I feel that this year the expectations from administration and the district for us to accomplish in the time we have are so unrealistic. Yet, we are expected to uphold them. The new Common Core standards are expected to be implemented in full force, yet we are not trained well and the information we have been receiving from the district as to what we are supposed to do changes constantly. I feel like the moral of our school is at an all time low, and I have seen wonderful teachers who have been teaching for years quit, both new and old teachers (myself included) sit in their rooms and cry after hours, or stay at school until 7:00pm preparing all the assessments and lessons and things they want us to cram in. I just found out that the expectation for the 2nd quarter report card for these kindergarten students is that they can read a decodable text fluently with less than 1 prompt from a teacher....KINDERGARTEN! I am struggling just to teach them how to interact with each other and how to stay in their personal space, yet in 3 weeks on the report card that goes home at Christmas, I will be held accountable for whether or not they can read fluently. This year has really taken away my love for teaching...and I hate that. I have never dreaded going to work, but each Sunday I find myself so stressed out I can't sleep because I am dreading going back to work. The more this happens, the less I seem to care about my work and my job which is not me at all....but I feel like I am being forced to choose between my health and my job. I have already been diagnosed with pneumonia this year, I am trying to plan my wedding in March, and I will be having my gall bladder removed in December, which to be honest...my school was not very happy that I would be missing time for my honeymoon and for surgery. I pray that God would revive my love for teaching and help me figure out what to do. Please pray for me as we start back after Thanksgiving and try to make it to Christmas. I want so badly to be a good teacher for these students but I can only do so much and I am so tired of feeling guilty and unsuccessful because I can't do it all. Help God show me what is most important and pray that he will take away these feelings and show me that I am enough.

To Whom it May Concern: If it's alright, I would like to ask for prayer. My husband and I are fostering a beautiful baby girl who we hope and pray God, in His mercy may allow us to raise as our daughter. We love her so much, and have had her since she was only a few days old. We also know about the situation she came from, and in interest for her best well being, want her safe from situations which could hurt her. Lately, the devil has been putting thoughts into my head which I know don't come from God because of 2 Timothy 1:7 and Jeremiah 29:11, but the bad feelings on my heart, and terrible thoughts in fear and worry for her future only persist. Recently, there's been a new petition for custody of this child. An acquaintance of the family has warned us that this may be a bad environment for the baby, and may even place her in danger. This has further deepened my concerns and anxiety for her well being. Today, to any who are willing, I have a big favor to ask. Please pray for the baby. Please ask God to bless her future. I want for whatever resolution this situation reaches to be what is best for the child. My husband and I are the only parents she's ever known and if our adopting her is best, then it is my hope that in selfless concern for what best serves her, her parents ask us to adopt her. Please ask God to make sure whether we get to keep her or not, that she will always be loved, that she will always be taken care of, and that she will be kept safe; that HER best interest will be placed as first priority, before the selfish opinions and desires of others. Please ask God to bless her with a future of promise with hope for reaching any hopes and dreams she may dare to have. Thank you, so much for your help to pray for this situation.

I don't know what to do anymore. My wife and I have had a lot of bitterness for years about things that have gone on in our marriage, and yet nothing has changed. She is insisting that she wants a legal separation, but I know in my heart that God wants this marriage to stay together and work. We have 4 kids and it would be devastating for all if we got any kind of separation or divorce. We can't even talk anymore without getting into some kind of argument, and it's really hurtful. I'm praying for direction, clarity, and something to happen. I'm in a really tough place and I don't know what to do. I don't know what to do...
