Please pray over relationships in my life: me/my boyfriend, me/my Mom, me/my sister, and my boyfriend/my family. We have been dating for over a year now and my Mom and sister have not cared for him from the beginning. Things have been rough, but got extra rough when my Mom told me before Thanksgiving that my boyfriend is no longer allowed at family gatherings. This is extremely hard on me, but even harder on my boyfriend because he is not close to his biological family at all. He had hopes of finding what he's always wanted in a family in my family, but obviously that hope has been shattered, at least for now. Please pray for clarity, discernment, knowledge, and wisdom for everyone involved. Also, my prayer for a long time now has been that my family (especially my mom and sister) would 1) see him through God's eyes, and 2) see him though my eyes. He is an amazing man. He has had a rough life and has a past of alcohol and drug use. He has worked hard over the past ten years to overcome this life, but they cannot see this because all they want to see is negative things. This is tearing both of us apart. Above all, please pray for PEACE. If it is God's will, may my mom's heart and mind change before Christmas, and may she welcome my boyfriend at Christmas time. We believe this would genuinely be a Christmas miracle.
In addition, please pray for my boyfriend's spiritual life. He was baptized when he was about six, and he says he is saved. Of course, only God knows his heart. As his girlfriend, from the outside looking in, I want to believe that he is saved, but the way that he handles life makes me wonder. If he is genuinely saved, please pray that he would rely on his faith more to make it through daily life. If he is not saved, please pray that God would work in his heart and in his mind to lead him to salvation. Pray for me, that I can be a vessel in whatever capacity God needs me to be.
Thank you all and may God bless each of you.
