The Turmoil Of Divorce For A Battered Wife

God, help me I pray. I have tried to be a good wife for many years and to stay with my husband and to be the wife he wanted - but things are just going from bad to worse. His drinking and other unmentionable habits are becoming so uncouth and difficult to cope with, that I feel the only course of action is to go through a divorce.

It saddens me, as I love my husband Lord, but I fear for what he is likely to do to the children and to me when he becomes so aggressive. Protect us Lord - protect the children I pray, and help us to escape from this bitter marriage.

Help me Lord. Show me what to do. Lead me through this painful process and bring me out the other side I pray – I will trust in You and not be afraid. Thank You that You are always there for me.
