Please pray for my boyfriend, for several things.
1) Please pray that God would convict him of his language. He curses often. He is a Christian, and his language is not appropriate. I hate hearing it, and it's not good for his 11-year old son to hear. Pray that he would be highly aware of when he is about to curse, and that he can consciously correct his language.
2) Please pray that he would become comfortable with me praying before meals, especially in public. I was raised to always pray before a meal, and it it typically habit for me; however, since we began dating almost two months ago I have not prayed over a meal with him because he has not felt comfortable with me doing so. Also, for him to feel comfortable with me praying out loud with him / for him.
3) Please pray that he will have the desire and the strength to quit dipping snuff. Most importantly, for his health, and secondly for his finances. He spends a great deal of money on snuff.
4) He has been divorced for two years but due to certain circumstances, several months back he allowed his ex-wife (and son) to stay with him at his house. It is a frustrating and stressful situation. Please pray that he will put his foot down, and that she will secure her own place and move out as soon as possible. It is not a healthy situation for any of us.
For me, please pray that I can continue to show grace and be patient in these situations. Also, please pray that I will have extreme discernment and wisdom in my finances, as I have some lifestyle changes taking place and I want to ensure that I am secure in my finances.
Thank you in advance for reading this, and for your prayers! May God bless each and every one of you.
