#536 - My Parents Are Getting Divorced - Part 2
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
God, my parents are getting divorced. I hate the institutions of marriage and family. I don't believe in them anymore. Happy families are something created in a children's fairytale. I'm never going to marry. I'll live with my boyfriend or girlfriend. I don't care how right or wrong that is. I might choose a promiscuous life, sleeping with anyone anytime just to raise my fist of defiance against marriage. If I am ever crazy enough to marry, I'm going to protect myself. I'm going to get a prenuptial agreement. I'm going to have walls and defenses in my marriage, protecting myself from my spouse hurting me. Children? I'm not sure I ever want to have children now. They might have to go through the deep pain of divorce that I am going through. I don't want to hear the religious people talk about marriage or family. It's all a bunch of ________. Father, I have calmed down. I do want to love and be loved by a special someone. I do want a happy marriage and I do want children someday. I'm just scared. Terrified. I don't want to repeat the same mistakes my parents made. Father, I need You to mend the scars in my life from my parent's divorce. I need to do that by making my relationship right with You. Like every other human, I live to be my own god. I need to confess and repent of that. I need to surrender my life to You. When I do, I will receive the blessings of the transforming work of the Holy Spirit. He will give me the healing I need. He will give me the strength I need to trust that You, no matter what happens to me, will always be there for me. Father, change my heart this very hour. Be my God. Amen.
