*A miraculous healing
Pray with me that my POTS be healed. Only God can do this.
I have some huge decisions to make, and it's somewhat overwhelming that it's all on my shoulders alone. Please pray for wisdom.
*Custody for my child in the divorce.
If I do not get custody, I'm not leaving. I can't imagine what he would do to my daughter when I'm not around. http://4mychildbyhisgrace.blogspot.com/2013/01/praying-for-custody.html
*An uncontested divorce
He has said he doesn't want to fight me. I just want the nightmare to be over. Please pray that we can work things out so it's an uncontested divorce.
*Very affordable child care
Pray that the right person and I connect. I need someone I can trust without a doubt. Pray with me!
I will need to buy diapers and many other things, but I have little income at the moment. I love tutoring, and it's something my health can handle, so pray that I will find more students soon.
I have a tutoring job! Pray that this mom reaches out to others to tell them about this wonderful tutor who is helping her son so much. Of course, this means I'll have to be doing a good job, so pray for that as well.
*Friends in the area.
I have some budding friendships! Pray that they blossom into something beautiful!
*Friends to help me get my mind off everything
I am finding myself dangerously close to the edge of depression. Trying so hard to not go there, but the idea of being a single mom overwhelms me, even with the amazing support I receive from my family and friends. And the idea of sharing custody stops my heart.
I really, really need to stop going towards depression. I am fighting it tooth and nail! Pray with me!
I am one of the weird ones. I really need to gain weight. I am endeavoring to eat healthy while still gaining weight, but it's a steep and very difficult climb. I don't want to just load up on empty calories, but it seems that nothing's sticking. In fact, I'm still losing weight. It's time to stop being embarrassed and ask for help from my prayer warriors.
*A place of my own to call home.
Right now, I am living with my mom, and she is being more than generous, but I would love to have a place of my own. It looks like it will be at least five months.
*Relationships to grow with my mom
We've worked hard to obtain a close relationship. Pray that my long stay here doesn't ruin that.
*My husband to get help and turn his life around.
He is still excusing everything, and until he admits that he has a problem, he will never change. I truly doubt he's saved, and so does he, so definitely pray for that!!
*Me to not grow bitter.
I have a lot to take in, and I'm finding it very hard to forgive my husband.
*Peace of mind, wisdom, and daily following God.
I have had many people tell me how proud they are that I am brave enough to do what is best in this situation. They say that leaving an abusive relationship is often not done because of how difficult it is. I assure you that it is difficult. I need prayer for wisdom, peace of mind, and daily following God.

"If there is one thing I think the Church needs to learn, is that God means prayer to have an answer, and that it hath not entered into the heart of man to conceive what God will do for His child who gives himself to believe that his prayer will be heard. God hears prayer; this is a truth universally admitted but of which very few understand the meaning or experience the power."
Andrew Murray 1895
