Subject: husband having an affair
My prayers go out to you and your family! I experienced the same situation years ago. I prayed, made novenas, penances, etc...it still ended in divorce...I was angry at myself, my husband, and God...for years I prayed!! I became depressed and very introverted...I finally went to a priest with my painful burden...he had me write a letter to God and one to my husband...no holds barred...he read the letters and told me something that changed my life, not only for this situation, but for many from then on...he told me my prayers were not wasted or had not gone unanswered...when we pray for someone to find their way back to God, God gives them many opportunities to do just that...however, the bottom line is that person must still make the choice...no one, not even God, can/will make that choice for them!! keep praying, pary for yourself as well, that you will find peace within regardless of the choices of another...it has been 13 1/2 years...it gets better...God can always make lemonade from lemons if we let Him...may God be with you and your children...
