Honestly, your prayers [and God] are the only things that are holding me together right now. I've posted a few times, but I ask for your continued prayer today throughout this weekend especially. My ex and his mom have had a rough relationship and don't get along well. (And this weekend everyone will be in the same city for a family event. Yet, I don't even know if people will attend or even see each other.) Please pray they allow Jesus into their [hardened] hearts, open their hearts to each other, find love and forgiveness. It breaks my heart and I'd love to somehow fix all of this, yet I can't. I'm in counseling and trying to get help with this situation, as I'm so sad. (I hate being a 'needy' person -- not usually who I am. However, I NEED your prayers for my strength and for this situation.) I want my children to know their grandma and that side of the family. I want everyone to get along once again. Your prayers are holding me together. Thank you so much, friends.

I have a situation that really needs your prayer. My ex and his family no longer get along. It hurts me deeply. I would like to see everyone get along (especially for the sake of my kids). I've tried to "fix" this situation in the past, but that didn't help. I somehow feel responsible that if the divorce never happened, perhaps this wouldn't have happened...if this or if that... Yet, through counseling [logically] I know that I can only control my actions (it's not up to me to control/fix others). I'm still in counseling. Yet, I believe the best counselor is God-Jesus-Holy Spirit. I feel caught in the middle of trying to keep the peace and letting go of things I just can't control any longer, as the anxiety is horrible. Please pray that this family would first of all find God (as some are very turned off right now), that they would forgive and talk to each other, and move in a positive direction. Thank you for each prayer.
