Pray for me! Trying to save my marriage!

Hello everyone.

First of all, I feel I've reached a crossroads in my life. The past couple of months, I'm finding myself extremely cranky,and I'm taking it out on my wife and two step sons. I'm going to school full time, and substitute teaching during the week. In my household, I feel like my wife pays more attention to the kids, and we don't even do things together like we used too. This has definitely made me put up my wall emotionally. One of the main things that continues to bother me is, the kids don't help as often as they should( especially my thirt-teen year old step son) When I ask him to do something, he fails to listen and won't do it. When it is time to do fun stuff, I feel he takes advantage of me, and fails to give me the proper respect. This has caused a serious rift within my home, and my wife and I are thinking about calling it quits. I know the enemy loves to see people self-destruct, but I know in my heart GOD can save us. Please pray for me and my family!

God bless!

In my Savior Jesus Christ's name I pray,

18 Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.

20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. - Col. 3:18-20

23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her - Eph. 5:23-25

33 Blows and disgrace are his lot,
and his shame will never be wiped away.

34 For jealousy arouses a husband’s fury,
and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge.
35 He will not accept any compensation;
he will refuse a bribe, however great it is. -Prov. 6:33-35

4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

6 Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. Titus 2:4-6

3 No one can be established through wickedness,
but the righteous cannot be uprooted.

4 A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown,
but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.

5 The plans of the righteous are just,
but the advice of the wicked is deceitful.- Prov. 12:3-5

4 Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. 5 For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands, 6 like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.
7 Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers. 8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. - 1 Peter 3:4-8

Amen.

wow. im sorry
