Dear Lord, please continue to make me strong enough to cope with my drunken, verbally, abusive ex- husband. Please continue to help me and guide me through the next few weeks until he leaves this house. Enable him to show remorse for his dreadful and unprovoked behaviour. Please give me strength to continue to smile through these difficult times. To look forward to the next wonderful chapter in my life. To be who I am and not be changed by this wicked, evil man. Life is difficult at times, but Lord with your strength and support I have my faith and hope for a wonderful future. Amen.
