Iris D.
Husband is very Abusive, Physical and Mental abuse for 32 + years

I have been married to the same man for 32+ years. He is an Alcoholic, he is verbally, mentally and physically abusive.

I currently have three broken ribs, from my husband hitting me in anger, three weeks ago. This is not the first time.

I feel trapped in my own home and can't get out. I always stayed here because of the three children and now we have grandchildren.

I am asking for prayers to help me to get the strength to do the right thing,whatever it may be. To also, give my husband the strength to get his self in order and to be a better person by staying sober. I love this man with all my heart, but, I don't know that I am in Love anymore, after this last incident. I feel like a beat up punching bag and it has not been good.

I have now turned this problem over to the Lord, and now I am asking for prayers from all to give me strength and courage to fight this battle with a kind heart, I don't want any anger. When I look into his eyes I see the devil in them, it scares me. I don't want to fear this, I want strength to fight this, gently.

For the Love of God, I need help.
