Prayer requests containing the term “counseling”:
please pray for my marriage, family & court case

October 01, 2015

I committed a horrible sin about a year ago, and my wife and I have been separated ever since. I caused deep emotional pain for her, and she no longer trusts me and hasn't allowed me to see our 2-year-old son for the past year. I repented immediately and have been getting help through Christian counseling and Celebrate Recovery (I got my 1-year chip tonight). Though I've been praying relentlessly for God to restore our marriage and family, my wife made it clear that she plans to divorce me. I'm facing criminal charges resulting from my sin, and must appear in court Friday, Oct. 9th, when I'm expected to accept a plea bargain and will be placed on probation for a misdemeanor. The terms of probation may end up being very excessive, and I'm concerned the terms may make it very hard for me to function in society. I've always been an honest, decent person and have never done anything like this before. I'm heartbroken and scared right now. Please pray that the judge will be lenient on me (I assure you I'm no threat to anyone), and that my wife would have a change of heart and allow God to restore our marriage and family. PLEASE pray that I will soon be able to regularly see and have quality time with my precious son, and for God to give me peace. Thanks
