Dear Lord, please hear my prayer. My husband has not worked for 7 years. He is severely depressed and has no motivation to improve our lives. I’ve tried to have patience and support him through this trial, but I do not know if I can stay in a marriage with a man who will do nothing more than sit around the house and watch his children do without for his own comfort. I pray that you light a fire under him and open doors for a successful career that will give him satisfaction and confidence in his abilities. Please help my husband be a leader in our family. I’ve lost respect for him and do not trust him any longer. If I need to disolve this marriage, I pray for the understanding and doors to open for me. Please give me a sign to help me decide the future path for my family. In Jesus’ name I pray with all my heart.
