My 33 year old step-son has a mild mental disability which prohibits him from being able to manage his money. The family is in great discord as to how to deal with the situation. Please pray that my husband I receive wisdom, patience and insight. We also pray our eyes be opened if we are wrong. We ask for prayers that the rest of the family's hearts be softened and that they receive the grace to forgive. We ask that they see and accept the truth about the situation so they may humble themselves and co-operate. I struggle with anger against them so I need help in that area as well. Thank you.

I have been requesting prayer for my marriage for almost a year now..My name is Melissa Guenther..My husbands name is Armando Barrera-Nova..I have 2 children Anthony who is now 10, and Jasmine who is now 6 years old..My husband was removed from our home in the state of Wisconsin for child abuse..My children, and I were going to move to Minnesota; but that did not work out at all..;Instead we came to Tn where I have family...Things are not going so well here, and my family has changed so much..When my children and I came we stayed with an elderly couple that we have known for a while through my husband..;But we were put out of where we were staying..We had been there for a good long while they were old, and could not handle having children around all the time..With everything I was going through I lost my job at Macy's..I end up working for a staffing agency that sent me to a job that was so horrible..And the pay was small..Within 2 weeks I told the temp agency the problems I was having with that job in hopes they would resolve the issues like them not allowing me to go to the bathroom, and other things..And they automatically put me in another job 10 times worse, and paid even less..It was only 7.70 an hour their was just no way I could pay rent with that..After we got put out I had to find an apartment almost at the last minute..My church paid a month for us to stay in a hotel then we moved..My rent is $635...Then theirs electric, food, and phone.,etc..To make this short I am now without the other job..The first day I injured my back..So things have just been terrible for us..My husband is really not providing for us at all..Of coursezp he never has in the 8 years of our marriage..And blames me, and my son for what he has done wrong..I had my faults in the marriage; but I always asked for forgiveness..My husbands heart has become so cold, bitter, and hard..I have become so depressed..I have fallen into deep depression..I wished I had been more content in Wisconsin..I had jobs that paid $10 or more..I think on all the good memories my husband, and I shared together I can't get them out of my head..I want to keep hoping things will change..My husband and I always had so many problems in our marriage..But I kept hoping things would change..It seems to just have gotten worse..I don't want to give up..But I have called Legal Aid to file for a divorce..Its really not what I want..I have the interview the 28th of this month..Please pray for us..I cry almost every night; because I'm in so much pain, and don't sleep much..My husband is so cruel to me..Again his heart has grown even colder to the point I feel he may have moved on..I pray so much, and don't understand why these prayers are not being answered..I also need prayer for my depression, and a good paying job..I'm scared, and know I should trust in the Lord..But I have 2 little ones who need me..I just don't know what to do anymore..I wish a check by mail enough to secure us for a little while..I don't drink, smoke, party, etc..Yet I never really have money..My husband is like me we neither one smoke, use drugs or profane words, alcohol, etc..Not that it saves us; but sometimes those things are a big problem in a marriage..I'm also not a money spending person..It maybe that my husband does not have the Lord God in his heart..He believes he is saved; but I question it..I am not God though..I pray that whatever it may take to lead my husband to Salvation..Thank you for all your prayers and support..

I am hoping for some guidance and prayer for my stepson and my husband. The relationship he as with his ex wife is horrible. The tension with my stepson is awful and I am pretty sure that has to do with he is not sure when a argument is going happen between his parents. He feels that it is his responsibility to fix them. I have prayed and prayed and nothing changes. My husband wants things to change. If we could get prayer for everyone's hearts to be filled with the lords mercy and grace we would appreciate it.

I have been given some unfortunate news regarding my health. I am currently separated from my soon to be ex and have children. I want to be their mother for years to come. At first I was very afraid and at times I still am, but it is beyond my control. It is the desire of my heart tol be around for my kids. Pray for peace for me and healing. Please pray also for my children in the event that a different end result occurs than the one for which I am hoping.

My father had hip replacement surgery a week ago on May9th and had complications. He has had several heart procedures done in the past and due to the hip surgery had to stop taking his heart medications. The hip replacement surgery went well but in the following days he developed blood clots in his lungs. Unfortunately I live 1200 miles away and cant be there to help my mother take care of him. My father is a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather and a devout Christian. My family and I know the awesome power of what our Lord can do when we humble ourselves before him in prayer. We love our dad dearly and would be honored and blessed if anyone would pray for him during this time of illness.
