Prayers for the court date is soon!

I have a thread already on this called “when it is too much” in the family life forum. But this is where all prayer intentions are posted. I already have so many of you who know all the circumstances praying and I thank you.

For all who do not know what is going on, I will be brief here and ask for your prayers and thank you ahead of time.

My sister is divorce now for a year and has two children, a 9 year old girl and 6 year old boy. Their dad is abusive to them when they go over to his house every other weekend. His new wife is worse then he is. Anyway, a new court date is set for November 7th at 3 pm. The dad wants full custody as well as other demands. The kids will have a counselor to testify to some of the abusives and we hope and pray the Judge will believe her and my sister. This have worked out for the dad for some reason to this date. He is in contempt of court and not paying child support for two months now. He is more careful not to hit the children and leave marks for the last one was seen by child protective services. He is also a cop and so is his new wife so they know how to use the system.

Please keep my sister and her children in prayers until this date and on that date for the judge to rule in her favor and protect the kids. Thanks again and may God bless you.

I’ll be praying. I think this is heart breaking, it’s so hard not to be able to protect a child you love.
