Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you several times a day at this point, asking & begging for your help and guidance. My wife is so verbally (and sometimes physically) abusive. She constantly threatens divorce and leaving but never follows through. I don’t want to be divorced but, for the sake of my children, it may be the only way. She comes from a VERY disfunctional family and thinks that screaming, yelling and cursing at your spouse and your children is the way to handle life. She calls me names and belittles me in front of the kids and constantly curses in front of them, often using the Lord’s name in vain – and she CLAIMS to be a Christian and tells me that God knows what she’s going to say and He’s okay with it. I have tried to stick it out, constantly biting my tongue and walking on eggshells. I am weak, tired, and just plain sad. I want, more than anything, to have the “perfect” family, if there is such a thing. I don’t know what to do at this point and I need help. I pray that you will wrap your arms around my family and make the changes that are necessary. I want Your will to be done and am fine with whatever You see fit. Please, please help me.
