The last two years I have grown to resent my husband. Especially since the birth of my third child. I also have post partum depression and anxiety that I struggle with. Life is so much harder battling this, with lack of sleep etc…he doesn’t help me at all with her during the night, maybe holds her for 5-10 mins a day when he gets home. That’s it. Today I’ve had rough time, feelings of extreme sadness overwhelmed me even while I was getting a professional . Caring for three children homeschooling two, cleaning house cooking meals etc I can’t seem to keep up. I tried telling my husband how I’m feeling sad. He says hurtful things like why should you get to be sad, you had a massage. I feel like I have no support, no companion, no parter. It just feels like I’m a room mate. I’m marriage lacks love, intimacy, connection. I feeel fed up. I’m tired of being married to him. The three years we’ve been married, feels like I’ve been ignored this whole time. I hate this. There’s no happiness. I feel like he’s neglected his husband role. Also prayers would be appreciated just for my depression. I really need a breakthrough.lenhenry2018Prayers: 108Requests: 1

My wife and I have been married for 25 years. She did some journaling in her first few years of our marriage. After she had been sick for a few days and felt really bad and needed help I booked a day off to care for her. I can’t remember that day to well but she said all I did was feel her up, watch TV and play just a little with our kids. Then I thought she was being a bitch when she wouldn’t have sex with me. All she really wanted me to do was catch her up on the housework and pay attention to the kids. Now when she read that back to me I realized I had failed her when she needed me most and I never even understood. I think I have changed a bit over the years I hope and I am so grateful she stuck with me. Perhaps you have a dumb guy that doesn’t get it. Do you think you could talk to him about what it is you need? Sometimes we are kind of stupid you know. Blessings dear one. I hope that your husband learns sooner rather than later.sheridanlynchPrayers: 11Requests: 0

Amen. Abba Father! How You love Vanessa; how You love her family! Jesus, we come to You in Vanessa’s behalf. Heal her of depression, O Lord, and grant that her eyes be opened to Your Truth. We ask that she receive insight and revelation in her relationship with her husband. Guide her eyes to focus upon You, not on her husband’s shortcomings. Grant that she can learn to love him through You. Guide her thoughts to Praise for the blessing of her children and a husband that provides for her, despite that he may be unaware her needs. You are Lord, You are aware of her needs and want to meet them. May she cast off the mantle of loneliness and seek You and be fulfilled. Praise Your Name!jeremypuseyPrayers: 4Requests: 0

Lord I hear her pain and I know Lord you know it more intimately than anyone. Lord you know what it’s like to be rejected, to be ignored, to be misunderstood and worst of all lord For those that you love to not spend time with you. Yet Lord you have such great love for us while we were still sinners you died for us. Or do you lay down your life for us. I pray that my sister will turn to you and trust you. I pray that her prayer prayer for her husband will be unceasing. I pray that she will know how to communicate her needs. I pray that you will surround her with sisters who can encourage her through this depression so that since deceitfulness will not hurt in her heart. I pray that her husband will have an encounter with you and that his heart will break to support her needs. And I pray Lord that my sister will persevere through the suffering letting it dry her closer to you.
