Father, I pray a hedge of protection around this mother and her children. I pray she will open her eyes to the abuse that is happening in her home.
As a grandparent we have been in a similar situation and waited too long to go to the authorities. Please do not wait, the abuse will only increase. The children need to be removed as soon as possible. This will be a long journey for your family. We are currently dealing with CPS and the court system and with the trauma our grandchildren have suffered. Please listen and act. This may turn your daughter against you for a period but the children need a voice and it is yours.
I pray for God’s strength as you navigate this hard road.gsimoninPrayers: 2260Requests: 17

Amen lecobb7! Thank you for your transparency. It’s a tough road you are on and I pray God’s blessings for you and your grandchildren.
Lord, You know I was once a child in a home like this. As far as I know, no one spoke up. The damage is great and lasts a lifetime. Only through You, has life become more normal.
We continue to pray that these family members will gather every bit of courage and strength that they have and alert the authorities – for the sake of their dear grandchildren, and their daughter.
If you see something, SAY SOMETHING! ~gailjuliemaloneyPrayers: 2Requests: 0

I agree with you Gail. Children are so vulnerable and need adults in their lives to be their voice. No one will do anything if nothing is done.
It is not acceptable or excusable that a child is being abused by a parent. For that matter any woman as well. Most women don’t act out of fear.
We, the adults, have a responsibility to keep children safe.
I pray for courage that as a grandmother you act and intervene in this situation. May God give you strength and wisdom.
You might like to call a Domestic Violence Service to ask some questions. You can do this anonymously.
That way you will have information to guide your decisions.
Keeping you in my prayers-Julie.juliemaloneyPrayers: 2Requests: 0

Father God I also bring the husband and father of the children before you. Lord his own life has been filled with pain and trauma.
Lord Jesus I pray that you open his eyes and heart to his family. Show him what it means to be a good father and husband.
Help him to understand that what he is inflicting on his family will have life long consequences for them as it is evidenced in his own life.
Help him to seek you in all things Lord and to receive healing, find hope for their lives and seek forgiveness from his wife and children before it is too late.gsimoninPrayers: 2260Requests: 17

Yes, Julie, I understand what it is like to be that child who has no voice, who is being told “these are family matters, and no one else’s business”. A teacher friend of mine asked me why I never asked for help. Frankly, as a child, I did not know that I could ask for help or even that there was help available.
Lord, help at least one of these children ask for help from a teacher, a friend, anyone who will help them. Open the eyes of the mother and father of these children to see clearly the harm they are doing and that it is not Your will for any of them. Do this so that a change can begin. ~gailgsimoninPrayers: 2260Requests: 17

Father, I agree with my brother and sisters in Jesus, protect all the members of this family and open up the doors for refuge, protection and restoration of hearts! I ask Father in Heaven, restrain this abusive father and call him to account quickly. Give clear understanding to the mother that abuse is not a christian act and has demonic forces behind it, and to not keep this door open. Father, please help her to understand and act in trusting Your authority / getting out of that darkness.gsimoninPrayers: 2260Requests: 17

Holy Father, we continue to stand in your chambers as a choir of prayer for the safety and rescue of this mother and children. We choose to trust you completely that you are protecting the mother and children until they can escape or be rescued. We pray for the faith of this family, and plead with you that what they have endured will not cause them to lose faith in you as their Lord and Savior. We still pray that you would heal this father of the illness that causes him to abuse his wife and children. Father, this night, we pray again for justice to be done, but we place our unfiltered fleshly judgments and our human wisdom about this situation upon your altar; we release all of our words and anger to you as the righteous judge who knows perfectly what should be under grace and what punishments should be imposed. We love you, Father, and we can never fully comprehend why you allow us the blessing of standing before your throne, and exercising the privilege of interceding for others in your creation. You are the Almighty, Everlasting Father, seated on the throne, and never ceasing to pour out your love on us.gsimoninPrayers: 2260Requests: 17

We call out to You to direct these dear grandparents to the proper channels that will give them the help they need to see this reign of terror end. We know who is behind it and we know he only comes to kill, steal and destroy. We pray for deliverance, repentance, reconciliation, and healing for all parties involved, no matter what it looks like as long as it is of You. We trust You Father and ask that as they have cried out to You, they will follow where You lead in this situation. Jesus says He is the Way the Truth and the Life. May all be guided in all three as they keep their eyes on You.gsimoninPrayers: 2260Requests: 17

Lord, I feel strongly that something must be done. If you see something bad happening, say something. I know it’s because of my childhood where we were being abused daily. Raise up someone who has the courage to stand up for that mom and those precious little children who have no voice. And help that person follow Your lead in what is best at this time. Give them the ability to take action.
We pray against the wiles of the devil and his desire to kill and destroy this family. No! In the name of Jesus, we pray against you. Get out, get away and leave this family alone.
Lord, bring this family into Your saving grace and love. ~gailgsimoninPrayers: 2260Requests: 17

I am absolutely praying for your family but please hear the encouragement and concern of others here. You have every right to call the authorities with your concerns. The details and examples you have are enough to call about. I will be praying for you in the process of making that report and what follows to keep your daughter and grandchildren safe.gsimoninPrayers: 2260Requests: 17
