I feel silly updating in a prayer thread: But thank you so much for the prayers and countless PMs that I have received. I will respond to them eventually. Things are still still very...well, very, right now. Can't describe it. Shock, I guess.

Am with my family for the holiday and will be praying hard over the next week, months.

I don't know any specific prayers other than the prayers for married couples in my prayer book, but any prayer or intercession would be great, and has been already felt. I keep coming back to this thread to read and repeat everyone's prayers. Thank you so much.

I can't even believe I'm posting this here.

I am in a daze.

My marriage is virtually over. I don't want to post details, but this has happened very abruptly. I am in shock. We will be trying to work it out, meet with Father over the next few weeks, but the prognosis does not look good at this point.

I can't even pray right now. I'm trying, but it's not going. Nothing except the Jesus Prayer. So if you could please lift up a prayer for me, my future plans, please do.

And pray for him. He needs help, and since I can't be the one to help him, I really hope God does.

Lord, have mercy!

I'm so sorry to be reading this.  Praying for you and this situation.

Havent seen Ismi around here lately.  Hope shes doing ok.
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

Agreed.  If you read this Ismi, you've been in my prayers rather frequently.

Anyone know how she's doing?

I hope and pray the issues have been worked out in a manner that is best for her.

She's dropped in from time to time.  Just has a lot on her mind, I'm sure.

Guys! They're not intercoursing. It's just an unfortunate angle.
