Prayer for my husband who is undergoing a midlife crisis

by Maria (Angeles City, Philippines)

Lord, please help me and my children deal with my husband, their father, who is undergoing a midlife crisis. He has become very impatient, easily angered and has made it a habit to shout a lot at us. As a husband, he has been taking me for granted, often undermining me in front of the kids and always subjects me to verbal abuse.

My kids and I are almost about to give up and we have been preferring to avoid being with him. He is basically a good person but inherited the loud and terrible ill temper of his mother. Please pray for him and my family. Amen.
