Prayer for Women in Abusive Marriages

There's another layer of abuse women of faith experience that forces some to endure domestic abuse much longer #spiritualbuse .
.They're often accused of - "not praying hard enough'","not submissive enough".

.They're quickly reminded that - ''God hates divorce", "a wise woman builds her home"
Then blackmailed with being 'unforgiving and not Christ-like' when they summon the courage to leave the abuser.
.Some are ostracised, isolated, stripped of their titles or positions because they're suddenly not 'wise enough women' for being separated or divorced due to domestic violence
.This moment, my heart goes out to
- every woman, man and child who has lost a loved one - mother, sister, cousin, aunt, friend or colleague because of this.
- those who have been shamed, condemned, overlooked or judged
- those living with the consequences of the error and ignorance of those who should have protected them
- those who may feel discouraged in their faith
.👉🏼"I pray that from God's glorious, unlimited resources. He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.
.And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God - Ephesians 3:16-‬19 (Amen 🙏🏼)
