I really am in a terrible state with no one but God to intervene. I married a man who I believed had given his life to christ. Although he was not a serious christian when we met and started dating. He gave his life when he knew I wount marry an unbeliver. We were regular members for 1year after marriage, he then slowly started keeping away from church and finally stopped me entirely from going. He started commiting adultry, became abusive of me. I tried to continue without him for 7yrs now with our 3 kids. He let’s us go for some months, then he gets really angry, starts beating me up, and eventually stops me from going to church. I have prayed for him over the years and still praying, pastors have asked to see him but he rejects them and beats me up for talking with pastors. Right now he has banned me from going to a new church he forced me to join. He stops me from going to a church, when I change, he stops me again. I dare not ask him to join me to church, he gets really mad whn I ask. He is getting worse, I have bleed a lot from his beaten, I can’t leave him because I love him and my kids love him. I hate divorce. I don’t know how long I can continue like this. An adultrous man that would not fear God. He prefers I live like him in sin. I don’t know what else to do. I only wish he will let me go to church and fellowship with God’s people. I can’t even pray and read the bible when he is around, if I get commited, he starts to maltreat me.
I feel trapped, I need prayers and Gods help.
Is anyone going through what I am going through, has anyone passed this phase in life. What should I do? Who can help me?
