Prayers for School
Wed, 04-03-2013 - 10:07am

Please pray for DH to have a change of heart. He still doesn't want to homeschool and I KNOW that that is what we're supposed to do. I'm so upset about this that I can't even look at DH. It is making me sick to my stomach to think about having to bring the kids to school next year. His reasoning is because he doesn't want them to be an outcast when they go to school later in life. What a stupid reason! Apparently to him school is a popularity contest! I am on the verge of saying that I hate DH because of this entire thing. He doesn't listen to me on any of my points. He is being selfish and not listening to the Holy Spirit. He is not the same man that I had married....he only cares about himself and his stupid boat. I know that the only reason for sending them to public school is so that I can get a job once Harper is in school....he hasn't said it, but I know that's how he feels...more money to do more things!

Praying for peace in your household. Our enemy wants to divide us in any way he can and destroy our marriages, so I pray for a restoration of affection, intimacy and the desire to work together in raising your children. I pray for conflict to fade and love to grow.

I don't remember from previous times that we've all talked about homeschooling all the reasons for and against, so if you want to refresh my memory, please go ahead! I'll be praying for your kids to receive an excellent education no matter where it occurs, and for your life to be a witness of the Truth through all that they learn.

I am so sorry!  {{{{{{Hugs}}}}}  Praying for the Lord to prick Dh's heart and for him to be obedient.

I'm very sorry you two are having such a big disagreement.  I will be praying for you both to reconnect with each other.  The enemy is definitely using this crack in your relationship to build a bigger and bigger wedge.

It sounds like you need to both pray and come back to this discussion when you have both calmed down a bit.  If you are both angry and/or upset, you will not be able to discuss it calmly.  You guys wouldn't happen to have friends that homeschool do you?  If you could show him that it really does work, maybe it would help him see your side of it.

Ashley, I am so sorry that you and your dh are not in agreement on the school issue and that it's leading to bigger frustration. I will pray that God will give you peace no matter what the decision and that you and your dh are able to communicate clearly and hear/empathize/receive each other's view. I know that my dh and I have had issues in marriage and it can really add stress. I think it was year 8 that we realized that we totally couldn't communicate well with each other and it took a lot of work to get past the stuff that was really in our way. So i will pray that God will guide you through this time and change hearts where they need to be changed. (((((hugs)))))
