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..

There's a boy I know whose life has been hard in many ways. His mother was crazy, and it killed her. His father, brother, and him have lived in many places, and are lacking in the money department. They live in the basement of a complex, and Cole--that's the boy's name--isn't mentally stable. He's suffering, and reaching to the wrong places for help. I'm afraid that he's going to give his life completely to a cause against the Lord, and I'm very worried for him and those like him. Pray for all the troubled kids, the ones who don't know how to say they need help.

My husband and I recently had our first child, bought a house, changed jobs and moved twice in one year, and have been married for 3yrs. We've both been feeling increasingly distant and don't feel the "spark." We've both read the love languages book, and our doing our best to fill each others "love tank." We've identified the problems, and we also know that those changes are hard on a relationship. We just need prayer to bring our relationship closer, for us to rekindle what we have/had. Neither of us want to give up, but we are both emotionally spent. Prayer is appreciated. Also prayer for my husband to strengthen his relationship with God, over time, it has grown virtually un-existant.
