Please read my story and pass this prayer request to all you know.
My ex-husband is Muslim. We separated because of controlling and abusive behavior that excalated when I started going back to church and had my two daughters dedicated. They are 2 and 4.
He has a restraining order that protects my daughters and I.
He threatened to kill me and take the girls to Afghanistan. He has attacked me and accused me of telling the girls he will go to Hell and insist that I stop taking them to church.
He started to show up at my church and spread lies. I actually had to leave my church because I felt so uncomfortable and attacked. He calls my babysitter and all of my friends and family. He leaves packages outside my house and in my car.
I have started dating a wonderful Christian man. He is a doctor. He is good to my daughters and me. He is helping us financially since my ex-husband is not providing.
I am starting nursing school in January and will be a nurse 18 months from that point.
One of the things I thought of doing, was moving my girls to VA ( I am in Pittsburgh ) to be with my mother while I attend school. She is Christian and has a stable secure home. I would go see them every week. This way, they are safe from my ex and in a calm home where no one threatens them. In 18 months, they would come back up here to a financial stable mom and safe city.
My ex husband has filed an "Emergency Hearing" to stop this. He wants them every weekend until there can be a final hearing, at which point he wants FULL CUSTODY.
This CANNOT happen. They will never go to church. His 17 year old niece was arranged a marriage to a man in Afghanistan that she has never met. That will be their fate and the cycle of abuse and sin will continue.
I will have to keep them in Pittsburgh where he will have full access to continue to harrass and control me.
They are so young and have the chance to live a full life now without ever knowing a house full of screaming and a religion full of hate and darkness and submission.
PLEASE pray for me. I have to go to court tomorrow with NO ATTORNEY. There is no time to get this put together and I am alone. His attorney has already called me at home and tried to indimidate me. I will stand before a male judge, male attorney and exhusband.
I am SO afraid. I cannot allow him to have control and influence over these little babies.
PLEASE pray that I stand strong with looking scared. That I know what to say. Pray the judge's heart is softened to my story and sees the truth in my words. Pray that the judge sees the lies surrounding my ex-husband and sees that he is filled with ill intent. Pray that I and my girls are surrounded by angels and protected from the enemies intentions.
AT 1:30 pm on Wednesday Dec. 16th, pray for me!!!
