Can I request a prayer from you Moms?

I beg that the lord have mercy on our family. My husband is looking at very serious prison time, possibly up to 5 years. He was deployed once...he buried friends and foes, and had to see things no one ever should. When he came home, he went awol. During that time we started a family, he never hid, he paid taxes. He was out for nearly 3 years, until the police came.

Im not asking for sympathy, I've met so many who think he is disgusting. Please refrain from judgement. He loves his country. He is an amazing father, and wonderful husband. He has been in a different state for the last three months, awaiting his court marshal. I am terrified.

Ive prayed: "Lord, please give us the strenght to endure, and accept whatever decision you make. And please, please be with my husband... Please help him to make the best decisions as he faces his court hearing. He is so scared, he needs you now more than ever"

Thank you Moms..

  • I know a couple different people that went through this also, they did go to court and both got Dishonorable Discharges, but they both went on with their lives. A prayer sent your way!
