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 habits are becoming so 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.
