Two of my adult children have been alienated against me, my son, when he was 15 and now almost 25 and my daughter, also at 15 and she is almost 22. I have tried to reach out to them over the years over and over and over, but they still refuse to have anything to do with me due to the divorce when they were younger. I am devastated and has would love to be able to reconnect and have the relationship that we used to have and better. Also, for the health issues of my husband and that he will be not have pain in his legs and feet and to keep his diabetes manageable and he will be able to find part-time employment soon.

My husband and I have desperately needed a new living space for the past year. The house we are currently renting is very unhealthy and has various types of mold in all rooms. We have been trying to buy rather than rent because we have 3 dogs. We recently made an offer on a home and were moving in the right direction in purchasing the home. We were on the right path and things were looking bright. Right in the middle of the process, my husband was laid off work. We lost the loan, the house, and have to start over in our search for houses as well as a new job for my husband. The mold is causing many illnesses for myself. Him not having a job combined with the stress of illnesses and low income is putting a strain on our marriage. We have handed it all over to God. We just ask that you pray God will provide comfort and guidance in our lives. We know that He has a plan for us and that everything happens for a reason. Thank you all and God bless each one of you!

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.

I just ask God will to do what he wants me to do with my communication with the 'others'. Right now, it is NO. God knows my reasoning and what I've been through. Right now, just don't care. It's Gods will on what HE wants me to do. I feel like I am doing the right thing. But if they want to really talk to me again, they're gonna treat me like a real human being, not some retarded mental creep like they claimed I was, but if not, I won't listen. Cause that's the way it's gonna be from now on,, under Jesus name. -Jason J
