Good morning brothers and sisters,
I came to you all about 2 or 3 weeks ago will news of my nanny and the need for her salvation. God took care of her and took care of my mum who needed support. Now I come to you again with prayer for my father.
My two sisters, my mum and myself are all christian and have been for many years. Sadly, my father does not yet know Jesus.
I am scared right now because my father is starting to say things to my mother that may lead to well, i won`t say it but may lead to unpleasent times in their 36 year marriage.
While my mother was gone to England to visit my nanny, my father`s job became increasingly more stressful. Those of you who live in Europe, America or Canada know the Automotive business has become a wreck in the past few years and my father has been in the automotive business for well...30+ years. His job is indanger as it has been many times before. Only this time, he has no where to go. Every company he is qualified to work for is in trouble and laying employees off with no work this season. My father was told he will recieve a 20% pay cut and he will need to work 12 to16 hour days. he simply cannot do that. No one can especially when he is faced with less pay.
My mother does not have a job and was faced with that choice over 25 years ago when she became to ill to work. She stays at home now and does everything that my dad cannot do with his busy days.
My father also has a problem of taking the stressed and burdens of others on his back to the point where he may break.
My little sister sent my a disturbing email this morning stating that my father had been emotionally attacking my mother again and saying hurtful. blaming things to her. My mother is a strong christian...but even she can only take so much abuse from her own husband. I know my father loves her still though he may say otherwise.
My little sister thinks God is breaking my father down to become ready for Jesus.
My father mentioned to my sister he tried to pray but he didnt know what to say or how to do it.
I live away from home and I get along with my father best but I cannot get to him to support him right now.
I need prayer...I need help...no he needs help and so does my family.
Please, pray that my father suffers for good in the end and comes to know Jesus and pray that my little sister and mother have strength to live under the same roof with him as he suffers through this. I need prayer and I need scripture and I know God will help me...but I`m still scared for the marriage of my parents and relationship of my two sisters and myself toward my father. I`ve never been faced with a problem this tough.
