Prayer Request

I don't normally ask for prayers, I try to handle things on my own, but I can't do that anymore. I have two young kids (4 and almost 6 years old) Things have been steadily going downhill with my partner and I just can't handle things anymore. I can't take the abuse from him anymore, I need to get myself and my babies out. Last night was HORRIFIC. He kicked off at nothing, punching holes in the wall, throwing things, destroying anything that belongs to me. Dresser, futon, TV, washer and dryer (flooded the laundry room completely), everything. I'm a stay at home mother, so he has completely taken control of finances. He's withheld and IS withholding food and necessities from us. Refuses to allow me to drive to go out and get anything we need, not that he'd let me have to money to get things anyway. If I ask, it becomes a fight and I worry for my safety and my kids safety. Last night was one of the worst nights in a while and I NEED to get away. I need to leave, I need to feed my babies, I need to escape this. My only moments of peace come when he's at work all day, but that doesn't last forever. Shelters are full because of Covid, I have NO family or friends nearby that can help, I'm STUCK. If I was able to hop in the van and go, I would, but I'd never make it with nothing. No gas, no food, nothing to care for my kids until we got somewhere safe. PLEASE pray for me if you can, so that I can get myself and my babies out of here safely. Even if you're not one to pray, I'd appreciate even a kind thought.

Praying for you and your family. Is there like a crisis hotline you can call to help you get out maybe? So sorry you are going through this with your little ones.

How far away is it to "relatives" who can take you in? Next question is that person your legal husband? Not judging here. But trying to see where you are at, in the protecting arms of GOD, that will determine, if GOD is moving you into His arms of "HIS CARE" :pensive:

God always has a way out. Reach out.God will open a door. I know it seems hopeless,but nothing is hopeless with God. You have a purpose and a calling.No one can stop you because you have favor.

Hi Rose,

My advice is that since he's not actually using physical violence, rather using the threat of it to control you, stay where you are - for now. Plan your escape thoughtfully and prayerfully and research all day long facilities, charities and the authorities help available for women in your situation. Try and squirrel away as much money as you can, and when the time is right, you all disappear and make sure it's for good with no going back no matter how he begs and pleads because leopards don't change spots. Open up to family and friends and see if they can help, same with your church. Maybe there are members with spare rooms who could put you up for a few weeks; speak to your vicar / minister / pastor. Let the police know that you feel intimidated and fearful, they may be able to point you in the right direction and promise to keep an eye on you.

Most of all, keep praying. God will protect and provide - He's good at that! Meanwhile Rose, I'm praying for you. May God bless you.

==============================================

Dear Lord God, my poor dear sister Rose is in a dreadful situation and desperately needs your protection, provision and care. You love her dearly and you only want blessings and wonderful times ahead for her. I know that you have a plan for her to get there so that she can testify of your goodness and provision and bring glory to your name. I pray for Holy Spirit filled wisdom, a determination to serve and praise you, no matter what, and a vision and deeper experience that'll bring comfort and hope to her.

I pray dear Lord for your guiding, care and protection so that she can move on with you and concentrate upon bringing up her sweet kids to know and love you.

Amen.

I’m so sorry to hear that, momma. I can’t imagine going through what you're experiencing right now. It’s not easy to handle situation like yours, and it’s not okay to go through any form of abuse. You’ve got some good advice here. Be assured that I’ll be praying for you and your kids, asking the Lord to intervene in your situation and provide the comfort, strength and help you need at this time. May you rest in the assurance the psalmist expressed when he wrote: “In the day of trouble I shall call upon Thee, for Thou wilt answer me” (Psalm 86:7). Stay strong. Sending hugs & prayers your way.
