    Friend In Great Pain

    Post  Paeter on May 10th 2012, 1:16 pm

    My oldest friend, one of my best friends, is going through a divorce right now that he does not want. He is a believer, but is feeling continual, deep and furious anger toward God over his situation. It sounds like the words of "comfort" he's hearing from others are only provoking his anger.

    As part of the fallout, he has moved back into my part of town, so I'm hoping to spend some time with him if he's interested in that. I have no idea what he needs right now, so I'm just hoping to love on him for awhile and be the best friend and ally I can be.

    Please pray for his comfort and peace right now, as I think that's the most immediate need. Pray also for me to just be whatever he needs me to be.

    Thanks.

    That's a hard situation. I'll be praying for you both.

    That is really, really hard. I'll certainly pray. And it sounds to me that he doesn't so much need any words of encouragement . . . in-so-much that he just needs someone to sit with him in his sacred pain.

    That's been my thought for now, too. Thanks, guys.

    Paeter, I'll be praying, as I have a friend from HS who is on the verge of a divorce himself. He's desperate for God's healing on his marriage, but his wife is being resistant. So your friend will be in my prayers.
