Prayers please for my husband who is angry, depressd, irritated, unhappy, and just downright miserable. We have been married for 24 years, have three kids and genuinely love each other very much. We are both committed to this marriage but I feel like I am walking on thin ice at all times. I am anxious, often feeling it physically, when I know he's coming home or when I need to talk to him about something. I am so nervous about making him upset. He says no to everything - never up for anything fun, he snaps at all of us, sometimes completely blowing up and yelling, he hardly talks, smiles and never laughs. He sees no problem with this and if he acknowledges it, he blames the rest of us. I take on his feelings. 98% of how I feel is a result of how he feels. I know that's not how it should be - he is responsible for his own happiness. I always blame myself though and think "what do I need to do differently?" or "What have I done wrong to make this happen?" or "What is wrong with me?"
This morning my youngest, age 12, and I discussd praying for God to fill daddy with joy and my son said, "That's not dad. He's just not going to be joyful. That's not who he is." I know God can bring healing to my husband, to our family and our marriage and peace to our home. I trust in Him and am asking for His wisdom as I pray for a breakthrough. He is such a good man and I love him so much.
