Praying for my family

by Judy ()

I am married with 2 adolescent kids with special needs. The elder daughter got trichotillomania (compulsory hair pulling) and binge eating. She had treatment for a long time and now is a bit better.
My younger son got Asperger Syndrome and ADHD. Recently, he is very rebellious and indulges in playing electronic games via mobile phone. He is studying in normal school and his academic performance has deteriorated drastically partly due to the complexity of the study and he has been distracted the electronic devices.
My husband is a Sunday Christian. He has been aloof and doesn’t want to face the problem. He doesn’t put effort in nurturing our marriage. We quarreled a lot in the past years over the issues of parenting and talked about divorce. I have been trying hard to search for treatment for my children in the past. My husband is very impulsive. Sometimes, he tries to subdue the son by force but it doesn’t work. And they fight at times resulting in injury of both of them. My son is very challenging. He takes side with the radicalists and agree to their violent and destructive behaviour.
Due to the COVID-19, my children don’t need to go to school and just attended online class. They become very lazy and indulge in the electronic devices all the time.
I am looking for a job. Pray that God will meet the financial needs.
My husband is not on my side and even blames me when I am disciplining my son. My heart is broken. I can’t describe the loneliness and difficulties. I am ambivalent to voice out divorce as I really can’t endure the suffering anymore. Please pray for God’s mercy on my family situation that they may repent and come to God.
