Pray for my relationship with my son & my marriage

April 12, 2015

Seven months ago, I committed a horrible sin against my family (non-physical)and my wife and I have been separated ever since. We are both believers and we have a 2-year old son. I immediately repented of what I had done and have been in Christian counseling and Celebrate Recovery (I just got my 6 month chip) ever since. My wife and I are on good terms and talk on the phone about once a week, but she has not allowed me to see my son in more than 6 months. I had to temporarily move 500 miles away to live with my brother when I began having suicidal thoughts. I have been praying nonstop for months that God would convict my wife to work with me to save our marriage, but after a recent conversation when I asked her if I could make a trip to see my son for his second birthday, she threatened to file a restraining order against me, and made it evident that she has no intention of reconciling with me. At that point I came to terms with the fact that I will soon be facing divorce and a custody battle, and I began to focus my prayers on getting to see my son and redevelop my relationship with him. I was a very good dad before I got kicked out of the house. My dad died when I was a child, so I understand how important it is for me to be actively involved in my son's life. A few days ago, I pitched the idea to her of allowing me to see my son at a facility that offers supervised visitation. She didn't say yes, but sounded like she may actually be considering it. If she agrees, I'll probably need to look for a job in the area so I can move back to be near my son so I don't have to drive 500 miles every couple of weeks. The other day when I was praying on my drive to work, I had the radio turned on--something I never do. After praying to see my son, I started to pray for my wife to have a change of heart about our marriage. At that moment, a pastor came on the radio teaching that God is a God of restoration, and that nothing--no matter how impossible it may seem--is impossible for Him. I assume God was speaking to me about my marriage through this pastor, but my wife still has a very hard heart about reconciliation. At this point, I'm in a fog about how to pray. I do want God to restore our marriage--and believe it is His will to do so, but God is not going to override my wife's free will to choose. I feel as though God had just given me peace with the idea that I'll soon be divorced--so I'm afraid to get my hopes up again. Please pray for God to give me wisdom. Please pray that my wife will allow me to have a close relationship with my son--no matter if we stay married or end up divorced. And please pray that if at all possible, that God would soften my wife's heart and give her the desire to work with me to save our marriage. Also, please pray for wisdom about whether or not I should begin the process of moving back--I'm afraid of moving away from my support group. Thanks.

Plese pray for me and my son

My son has a heroin addiction and we both need your prayers badly. He has good days and bad, but on the bad days, I am afraid that I enable his addiction. No matter how hard I try, he always cons me into giving him money. . . sometimes its for debts that he owes and sometimes he says that he owes, but then he tricks me and uses. I am a terrible parent, I know this is wrong to give him money, but I end up giving in to him. I need God's help and forgiveness so badly. Please pray that I will break away from his addiction, so that I can help him and help myself. Please pray for his healing and recovery. He has so much possibility and God has put so many positive things into his life. Thank you for your prayers! I pray that you will never have to face this situation if you have children. God bless!

Baby Angel, Earth Pain

My family and I have gone through the worst storm I've ever been through recently. This past Christmas I found out I was pregnant with my third. At 11 weeks we found out something was wrong. At 13 weeks we found out it was a brain abnormality. This brought forth a bunch of appointments and tests. All of the blood tests came back good, and we found out it was a boy(our first, the two children we have are girls) at 15 weeks, during an ultrasound, we were told that our son didn't develop a frontal lobe, and the brain he had was completely fused (diagnosed alobar holoprosencephaly) to which they said there was no hope, he would not live.That most with this condition don't make it past 10 weeks. He was holding on, but struggling.Soon his body stopped growing but his heart kept beating.... I prayed and cried for a miracle, but God's plan for my son, was in Heaven. My son Avery was born into Heaven on March 24, 2015 at 17 weeks into the pregnancy. I am having such a hard time getting through this, as is my family. I've been seeing so many wonderful signs from God that He is with Avery. And my faith is stronger than ever, but the grief is more than I can bare at times.I'm trying to stay strong, I feel like I have to be the rock during this, and the weight is too much..I just want to hold my son.. Please pray for my family and I during our pain. Thank you!
