Heather R.
My Daughter in a emotionally abusive marriage

I would like to ask others to pray to God to give my daughter the emotional strength and self-esteem to do what is best for herself in a abusive relationship.

When he came along, she was in her mid-teens I could tell she was "his" posession. Trying to restrict her at that age didn't work - she married him and I have prayed and prayed and lost many hours of sleep over the years for God to keep her safe. He is extremely controlling and may I say selfish. She cannot go anywhere without him except work and back. It is only with him and his family exclusively. They have been together now for several plus years and I have seen her emotional and physical health go down. She does all the work at home and is constantly exhausted and sick. She walks on eggshells so that he won't explode in a violent rage. I pray to God to give me the answers in how to help her. She is also in denial; saying he's not "that" bad. I have seen the fear in her eyes. But it has and is continuing to get worse especially finding ways to isolate her from the family that loves her. I am afraid it will escalate to physical violence. Pray with me for her health and safety. Thank you so much.
