I really need prayer. My heart feels like it is being torn in two. My son just told us that he is splitting with his wife. They have a 18 month old son. I love them all so much and my daughter-in-law has become my daughter. She loves him and does not want this but the hurt goes so deep on things that have happened that he is really struggling. He is a Christian but I really feel Satan pulling hard at him right now. She is planning on doing the 40 day Love Dare. Please pray that our wonderful Lord will work in both of their lives and restore their marriage as that is what it is going to take. Pray that I can give control to him as I struggle with this and I know that.

I pray that this makes sense as I have been and continue to shed many tears.

Lord we pray for these families that are in need of your guidance and strength. We know we haven't the power to put into they're hearts what they should do. Only you can do that. And that all we can do is love them all and send our prayers up to you. We lift our hearts in humble prayer that you. Put it into they're hearts to be strong in each other, and to open they're hearts to your words. Amen

awww....Cindy I feel sad for you and your family. I know you don't want to see your son and his wife split apart, but if that does happen, it doent mean that his (then would be) ex-wife would no longer be part of your family. She is the mother to your grandson. She will always be a part of your family because of the grandson. I will pray that your children can work though their problems and find forgiveness for things in the past. I will also pray for you and your grandson. That no matter what the parents decide to do that the two of you will have a strong child-grandparent relationship forever. If you keep your door open your grandson and his mother will remain in your lives. God Bless!!

Thank you all so much for the prayers. Things are still VERY rocky . They talk but never listen to what the other says. There are times I really hate technology as it has made it to easy for people not to actually communicate. TO me texting and messaging is not always a good thing. And that is what they seem to like to do. Anyway, my daughter-in-law is living with a friend of hers right now and my son is in their house. Her parents bought the house for them and they have been paying them back so now her parents want the title to the house so I am afraid they want to throw my son out. By the way we live in Montana so it is cold here and he really has no where to go. He could move back here but we live 90 miles away and he has his son, his job, and he is a volunteer firefighter-EMT and has been offered a full time paid firefighter postition that will be open in about 6-9 months so that is very hard for him to leave all that. Her mom is an alcoholic and her dad is a recovering alcoholic. When she was younger she was ,in my mind, raped by her mom's cousin who is old enough to be her dad. She blames herself as she allowed it to happen but at the age of 12-14 with 2 alcoholic parents she was looking for LOVE and he used that to his advantage. I know all about this but her parents do not as she doesn't want her family to know. This has caused some of the problems as this just came out when she had her mental breakdown., She ended up at the ER last week as she totally lost it. Her parents are now angry at my son and blaming him for her mental breakdown. SHe has admitted to me that she has been mentally depressed since way before she met my son. Her mom does not believe in depression and that she needs to "Snap" out of it. My son told her parents that she took a knife at him and that she tried cutting herself but they just call him a liar. He is so lost on what to do. The DR's have adjusted her depression meds and she starts counseling next week so I am excited and happy about that. Please continue to pray for them both and my beautiful grandson as well. She told me that I am her mommy and that her mom is her Mother. I am glad that she know that I am here for her but it saddens me to see the rift between her and her mom. In the hospital last week, her mom blew up at her and told her that she just needs to get over it and grow up. Pray for her mom as well. Thank you all again for all the prayers nad please continue.

I am sorry for the pain that you are enduring and that your whole family is going through. I will indeed pray for you Cindy. I do one main thing to say tell your son no matter what the immediate struggle is of the day to not give up praying and the times he doesn't believe in His Lord tell me to pray for faith. Struggles are hard but do not give up praying and I know when you are weak you are strong because God is carrying you in his tender care.

Just keep him raised in prayer. Suggest counceling to them, and let them both know how much you love them. Offer to take the baby so they can go out on a date or away for a week-end marriage retreat. Check to see if the church has something like a marriage reteart or counceling available. But most of all don't let them see the hurt and tears from you just the love.

Good luck and will keep you in prayer.
Feel free to write to me if you want someone to talk to.

We can't know what God's plans are. We have to just trust, and turn it over to our higher power. Teach faith, love and patience by being faith, love and patience. You raised your son the best you could. He's an adult. It's in God's hands. All will be well. Keep the faith.

You have my prayers too! My 23 yr old son just married a woman with two children by two earlier relationships. The bioDads are making trouble for the family and trying to split up the children...even for Christmas. I will be praying for your son, your daughter, and their child. Please pray for my son, his wife and their children. I am as thrilled to be a grandmother, as you are. We will be strong for our children and their children! {{Hugs}}}

Cindy, I've been doing the 40 day Love Dare. I have 3 days left. I've been married 30 years. Have ADHD, on the FASD spectrum too. Our wonderful Lord will work out both of the situations in good time. I want my life restored to our marriage too.

Prayers & blessings! Y'all need so much healing.

My married son's marriage is ok, but neither of them believe in God. He was raised in a religious home, & his brother does mission work.
I pray for mine, also---& understand some of your pain.

Cindy, this makes a whole lot of sense to me. I'm praying for you and your family, knowing God as a restorer of wounded and broken marriages. He can heal and restore, no matter what has happened previously and even birth a new and fresh relationship between them. Some times it may take some time, but we are to continue to praise and thank God in advance for all that he is doing in us and in them. I'll continue in prayer for them all.
