Urgent Prayer Request

I don't normally ask for prayers, I try to handle things on my own, but I can't do that anymore. I have two young kids (4 and almost 6 years old) Things have been steadily going downhill with my partner and I just can't handle things anymore. I can't take the abuse from him anymore, I need to get myself and my babies out. Last night was HORRIFIC. He kicked off at nothing, punching holes in the wall, throwing things, destroying anything that belongs to me. Dresser, futon, TV, washer and dryer (flooded the laundry room completely), everything. I'm a stay at home mother, so he has completely taken control of finances. He's withheld and IS withholding food and necessities from us. Refuses to allow me to drive to go out and get anything we need, not that he'd let me have to money to get things anyway. If I ask, it becomes a fight and I worry for my safety and my kids safety. Last night was one of the worst nights in a while and I NEED to get away. I need to leave, I need to feed my babies, I need to escape this. My only moments of peace come when he's at work all day, but that doesn't last forever. Shelters are full because of Covid, I have NO family or friends nearby that can help, I'm STUCK. If I was able to hop in the van and go, I would, but I'd never make it with nothing. No gas, no food, nothing to care for my kids until we got somewhere safe. PLEASE pray for me if you can, so that I can get myself and my babies out of here safely. Even if you're not one to pray, I'd appreciate even a kind thought.

Lexi, I see you have internet access. There are ways to contact Law Enforcement and other shelters near to where you live. You can also contact Child Protective Services via the net. Contact the schools, hospitals and even churches. My church is in the business of helping others in dire conditions.

I would consider it an honor to pray for you and your children.

The best solution for your problem would be for your husband to be saved and stop his abusive behavior. I will pray that this will happen.

Praying.
You've gotten good advice here. Please apply it - for your children, at least!

What is new, Lexi?

From what I read in your OP, you are in imminent danger. That he was so extremely violent against non-living things does not guarantee that he will not be violent against you, or the children.

Most likely, the root cause of the violence is a mental health issue, because that sort of actions is irrational, therefore ALL your actions need to be focused on safety.

There is nothing you can do "fix him". You are not traiined to do so, and trying to do it by yourself, may result in harm for yourself
