Diligently Seeking God
All women living in the silence of domestic violence


This prayer circle is set up to encourage people to pray for those suffering silently in domestic violence.


There are many women and men today suffering through domestic violence and it is only getting worse. Satan has devised a plan to put an end to the family as we know it. Satan has moved many men and women to destroy their families through the act of violence. I am one of those living in silence and satan has plans for my life and the life of my children, but satan is a lie. I pray that women and men worldwide will seek God diligently concerning their situation. God is well able to deliver his people.Remember those families in prayer that God will move for them in a mighty way. Please remember me and my children in prayer.

GOD never intended you and your child to go through what you are going through now. He WILL NOT leave you if you decide to leave this man. As a matter of fact, he will ALLOW you to leave this man and will BLESS YOU IMMENSELY for enduring as long as you have and just for asking the question and worrying about whether or not leaving is something that God would or would not honor. Its true, God hates divorce, Georgie, but if your husband is abusive to you and your children, God is permissive and UNDERSTANDS WHY you are leaving this man. Your motives are in NO WAY OF A SINFUL NATURE! Especially since a child is involved too. for that matter YOU ARE GOD'S CHILD and he cries with you over this. PLEASE contact me, I have endured horrible physical / sexual abuse from my x husband. What's worse, after leaving him, I found out that he physically and sexually abused my child as well. My son lived with that secret for 5 years before he felt safe enough to tell anyone.

I am here if you need me. You or anyone else that is going through this living nightmare.

GOD NEVER INTENDED HIS PRECIOUS CHILD TO BE ABUSED AND BEATEN. MARRIAGE IS A SACRED ACT CREATED BY GOD, AND IT IS DEFILED WHEN ABUSE IS INVOLVED.

Pray every day. Contact me and I will pray with you.

God will protect you and HE cherishes you.

I am currently in theraphy for 3 sexual abuse situations and past relationship abuse. About 2 months ago I realized that I need some professional guidance to help me with my depression,paranoia,and mood swings. I never told anyone about my abuse situations until I was 17 and the first occurred when I was 5 yrs of age. Please pray for me and others who are dealing with abusive relationships and past situations. No one deserves to be damaged like that, and No one needs to feel alone in times like this. So please pray for me as well as all of these others. GB-you all!

May my Lord and Savior protect and help the women, children and men that live in an abusive circumstances. Remember one thing parents if your child is exposed to abusive behavior they well also act that way when they are grown up. Listen to Jesus, He said let the little children come unto Him for such is the kingdom of Heaven. Fathers are you setting a good example for your sons? Mothers are you setting a good example for your daughters?

After 31 years in an abusive marriage, the Lord finally helped me to have the courage to say "enough." I pray that the Lord will work in the hearts of my 5 children to bring healing, strength and forgiveness. We were all physically, emotionally and verbally abused and I desire that the sin of their father would be broken and not passed on to them. We lived under a fog of fear that clouded rational thinking and behavior. I thank the Lord that he has lifted that fog to begin the healing process. My soon-to-be ex-husband needs much prayer. He professes to be a Christian but continues to live in denial of any of the abuse or fits of anger he subjected us to. He has managed to convince his church group that I am just a "Jezebel" and that the children and I are just lying. Please pray that the children and I will continue to receive the right teaching and help that we need. Also pray that the Lord will lead me to the right scriptures to teach and heal us. I praise the Lord for all who have the strength and courage to reach out to others suffering in an abusive situation. There is HOPE. My heart goes out to all who have suffered abuse. It is so hard for those who have not experienced it to really understand.

To Georgie,
I don't think it's wrong for you to leave your husband. You know, God is watching. God sees what he is doing to you and your family. One day, God will be tired of it, and the saying,"what comes around, goes around"..his turn will eventually come. But if you feel you must leave him, don't be discouraged to leave. I would. It says in the bible that a man and a woman can separate. Don't try and remarry, that probably wouldn't work out anyway. But keep praying for him. Pray that God would open his eyes. pray that God would put that conviction in his heart. Pray against Satan and his devices, that they would be stopped. If you have a way to leave, then leave. If you need to find a way to leave, ask God to make a way. Keep looking to the Lord and no one else. trust in God. When you feel that peace in your heart, you know that it can only be God.

God, I pray for the abuse that goes in homes, behind closed doors...I come against every lie the devil is using. The devil came to steal, kill and destroy. He's like a roaring lion with no teeth....I rebuke those lies in the name of Jesus. I command you, Satan to get your filthy off and to leave in the name of Jesus. God, I pray you send your warring angels over rooftops of peoples home that have that abuse. I pray God you'd put a stop to it. I pray God, you'd put conviction in these people's heart that are causing abuse. In the name of Jesus. I pray God, you'd make a way for them escape it...God that you'd put a shield around them and cover them in your blood. Lord, protect the ones that are being hurt. God have mercy. God just be with them even now. Oh, and I thank you, I thank you Jesus.

I have read so many sad hearting things in here today. And I was looking for help and prayer and not only did I find prayer but so many answers. As I got married to a very abuseive person in 1981, not only that but emotional,sexual, phy. I left confused and sad I let God down. As I walked to close to him so long.I too felt like God would be mad at me. He also sexuial abused my daughter. And when I got out, I was upset with God too as he let me down. How could this happen. And that was in 1996. I divorced and life went on. And what a mess! I really stopped talking all together with God about 1999.I felt my whole life had been a waste. But four days ago my daughter called me and Praise God I was wrong! She has made me see so much of what I was instead of what I wasn't. She walks with God now. And I wanted some prayer to put back together what the Lord started back in 1984 in my family. But to all with this abuse, walk with God but don't stay!! The BIble says to Separate just can't remarry. Unless for adultery. But don't stay living it. He will make away where we can't see it. I know, I am wiser today than yesterday.And Most of All don't walk away from God as I did. When now I see it was there, just my faith wasn't any more I let the years of abuse take my thought and lost my walk walk with God.
In the Name of Jesus I pray now for all those who walk the same and Diff. abuse as me, may they never feel lonly and lost. May you lift youe love of peace the world does not know on them, so they can get where you want them to be. May they know your love and safly and know nothing can happen without you . That you are there. In your GREAT AND WONDERFUL NAME CHRIST JESUS
AMEN

Our Gracious and Heavenly Father,
I thank you in advance that you will make away out for all Sisters and Brothers that are suffering from ABUSE.
I know where they are coming from for I myself has been ABUSED physically, mentally,verbally and sexually for almost 12 years. I lived with a man who would lock me and my children up in my own home just so he would know that I was still there when he'd get back. When he got home he would be so DRUNK and beat me, for he thought I was his ex-wife. I lived like this thinking that it was all my fault and that I can change things by showering him with more love. But little did I know I was living a lie of the Devil himself Satan. My 3 children was all I had to keep me going for they are my BLESSINGS and my STRENGHT.Until one day I was invited to go to Kauai for a revival meeting.This is where I excepted Jesus Christ into my life, my heart, and home.
When I came back, I came back full force with the HOLY SPIRIT and the POWER OF GOD that I said no more. With no money in my pocket I sent my children to Kauai to stay with my Sister,one month later I was ready to spread my wings and fly. I'm telling you this that you might find your Strenght and Courage through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as I did. You see nothing is impossible if you just BELIEVE. Turn your situations around by confessing with your mouth and believing with your heart that the things that are happening right now to you has to stop in Jesus Mighty Name. Say to yourself I am a Conquer in Christ, I am that precious Jewel in his eyes, I am that sweet fragrance to his nostrils and continue to speak to the Lord for he hears your every word he knows just where you are. He said that he will not forsake you nor leave you and that he is always there with you, believe him and call on him daily he will take you out from where your at I promise. I am a living testimony to ABUSE and I thank God for that.Thank you Lord that my Sisters and Brothers will all come out from the Abuse that they are in. In Jesus Name I Pray and Thank you Lord, Amen

Please pray for my 19 year old daughter who spent 3 years in a both physically, & emotionally abusive relationship which tore down her sense of self. She found her way out of that one but now seems to be in another. She has lost her sense of selfworth and feels unworthy of anything better. Pray that she will return to the Lord and seek his direction fo her life. She is so lost. He is contoling her and keeping her away from her family. Please pray that God will give her the wisdom and the strength to see what he is doing and to get out now before it gets worse. Lord Jesus help my child and bring her home to the people who love and care for her. In Jesus' name, Amen

My prayers go out to all in need of pray. I need pray also for my marriage of 3 mos. we have know each other as long distance friend for five years. Now I have relocated to his state(1800) miles from my state, friends and family. I feel alone most of the time. My husband is a leader in a church position and is very verbally and mentally abusive to me. He asked me to leave his home on four occasions he open up to me and had me call my home too,so I did. Now I am leaving with a female co-worker as a room-mate. He has belittle me in front of his teenage children and my job. He has physically restrained me and dragged me. Called me his ex-wife name several times in anger. I know he is an abuser, but I know God can change people. I pray everyday for him to come around. We have been to several counselors. We finally went to his leader (pastor and his wife) in the church for christian counseling. At first it seemed he was not understanding what he was doing to me. Now after one session with more to come, he seems to want to change and follows God's word as to what a husband should be. I am afraid he may be just doing this to get me back home and do the same thing again. I don't know what to do. I want my marriage to work for the commitment I made to God for better and worse and b/c I love him. I know the Lord can work things out, but I want to go slow. I am afraid to give up my temp residence to move back in. He wants to do a 30 day trial of living together again. I am strongly thinking of trying this, but keeping my temp residence open to return if I have to. Please someone strong in faith give me some opinions along with pray.

Tanjo, I left my first husband 3 times I came back twice. He had promised to change and not beat me up but somewhere along the line he always forgot that promise. The last time I left it was for the last time. honey I think your husband and you need to have more counceling before you change where you are living right not. I think you are right in thinking he may being this to get you back home so he can have you under his control. I am not a person that wants to end a marriage even though I have been divorced twice. The only signs you have to go on is his behavior so let a little more time go by before you go back. Just tell him you need a little more time and if he has really changed he will be glad to give you the time you need.

Dear Lord and Heavenly Father guide Tango in the way you want her to go. She still loves her husband Father, but she does not want to be abused any more. Stay with her Lord as she searches for Your guidance. Thank you Father.

Hello, I was abused in many was by my husband.. He has hurt not only my self but my children. He is now on housearrest for aggravated stalking. but it has been 2 years since I have filed for a divorce.."I am not yet".. That really bothers me..I know it seems minor,but it would mean alot to get some closing in this nightmare! His last words to me were: that I will not divorce him" I feel so angry and I know that God is in control..But I am having a problem with this spirtualy..I do not want to dissapoint my heavnlly father. Help,, This is hard I need someone to talk to and I need prayer..I want all of this hurt to go away and the fear that he will try to hurt my family..But alone?? It seems just too hard to do. does any one relate to something like this that could offer some advice. or maybe anything??

Chasity01, honey you did not leave a way for me to get in touch with you. At my website we have a listing of places you can go to get help. I would also like to talk with you. Please email me at catlover98387@aol.com. My website is http://grandonhouse.tripod.com.

I pray that you will do one or the other for I really feel for you and all the other women and children on this list and all the others that I do not know about. I do know that my first husband tried to kill me and when I left him I was more afraid I would kill him if I did not get out. Listen to your heart so Jesus can tell you what to do. I know He does not want you and your children in harms way. It sounds as if you are too close to stay where you are.

I HAVE SAID MY PIECE TO THEM BOTH AND NOW I BOW OUT, NOW ALL I CAN DO IS PRAY.I TRY TO TELL HER TO REMEMBER HOW IT WAS WITH ME AND HER FATHER. I ASKED HER TO TURN TO GOD. IF SHE MUST HAVE THIS MAN OR IF SHE LOVES HIM THAT MUCH, THEY BOTH NEED TO PRAY FOR CORRECTION, OR WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MAKE THINGS WORK OUT. I PRAY FOR GOD'S INTERVENTION. IF IT IS TO BE IT WILL. I ASK ALL WHO READ THIS TO PRAY FOR MY DAUGHTER. I DON'T WANT HER TO BE HURT ANYMORE AND I PRAY FOR ALL OTHERS WHO ARE GOING THROUGH THE SAME ABUSE. I KNOW I WAS ONCE THERE.
