My marriage has been exceptionally tough. My husband never had the role model he needed so our relationship has not been man and wife as such. We have two small children, and all glory and praise to God that he brought my youngest out of severe and life threatening illness when she was preterm. Because of him she has defied all odds and is now a happy, normal, two year old. I broke last year, but praise God for bringing me though it. He brought me through anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and actions and has continued to support and heal me. My kids are well and happy. My husband is in a better place. Because of Jesus Christ, and the pleading of the Holy Spirit who brought my kids, my marriage and my life through really dark and seemingly impossible times. I’d like to ask prayer for continued healing. Out of self protection and anxiety I find it very difficult to want to be around my husband still or allow myself to love him properly again I think over fear of being hurt, and I wonder if I am closed to my children too somehow. I find it difficult to be around friends/acquaintances/my church, but I can happily chat with strangers or people at work I don’t have to have a relationship with. I want to have a full marriage, one where my husband cherishes and supports me, where he knows how to and where I can feel released to love him again and not hold up my barriers. And to be a better mum. Praise god he has been teaching me more and more how to pray, and he has been showing me and helping me teach my kids to have a connection, a relationship with him and it delights me and I’m sure he is joyful as we see the fruits of that!qamargaretPrayers: 183Requests: 6

Lord, thank you for teaching us that our daily struggles and anxiety are eating our precious time and energy to accomplish Your Purpose. Allow a gentle spirit to rest in the hurting places and allow a peace beyond all understanding to surround this family. Heal the brokenness and restore the love and forgiveness of our human frailty. Thank you for the nonjudgmental acceptance these children bring to this family. Teach them each to help one other in their brokenness and cleave to You. Amen
