Lord, this hurts. It seems that everything my Mate does or says, or doesn’t do or say… it backfires on us, and he just gets blamed for more and more things around this RV park. It has gotten to the point where I do not even want to be here any longer, there just seems to be pain and misunderstanding everywhere. My heart races, my adrenaline pumps, and I just do not feel SAFE. I cannot sleep, my head hurts, and it feels like things will never go back to “normal”. I care about each one of these people who seem to be hurting each other no matter what their intentions. It truly seems like the enemy has been set free amongst us, the sower of discord, the accuser of the brethren. Faithful Shepherd, Mighty King, I ask you to intervene here. I ask you to restore order and peace, and bring about lasting change. Let Truth be seen, and let my husband’s Favor be restored to him. Help me to forgive the false accusation against myself (the easy part) and all the heaps of misunderstandings and blames that have been railed against my Mate this past week or more. I ask you to bind up the enemy and bring his mastery of this situation to an END. Amen.

1 Peter 3:12-18 ERV

The Lord watches over those who do what is right, and he listens to their prayers. But he is against those who do evil.” 
If you are always trying to do good, no one can really harm you. 
But you may suffer for doing right. If that happens, you have God’s blessing. “Don’t be afraid of the people who make you suffer; don’t be worried.” 
But keep the Lord Christ holy in your hearts. Always be ready to answer everyone who asks you to explain about the hope you have. 
But answer them in a gentle way with respect. Keep your conscience clear. Then people will see the good way you live as followers of Christ, and those who say bad things about you will be ashamed of what they said. 
It is better to suffer for doing good than for doing wrong. Yes, it is better if that is what God wants. 
Christ himself suffered
when he died for you, and with that one death he paid for your sins. He was not guilty, but he died for people who are guilty. He did this to bring all of you to God. In his physical form he was killed, but he was made alive by the Spirit. 

Lord, I do not feel strong. I feel like I have been kicked in the stomach over and over again these last several days. Nothing we do is right, everything my Mate does to help me or anyone else gets him into trouble. I just want to hide inside the camper and never go outside again. If anyone comes to the door, I just want to shoo them away. Stop hurting my man, STOP making him your fall guy! Remember all the good he has done, and be his FRIEND again! I suppose in some ways, this means we are part of the family here. Because we are hurting, and being hurt. Isn’t that what families do best? Heal our hearts, oh Lord. Return your peace and your favor. Let Truth be seen, and honored. Amen.
