What a blessing that the oldest child is visiting his mother on his own! He's surely old enough by now to recognize at least some of the truth, such as his mother's love for him + the terrible manipulations he's been subjected to by others. May he see it all clearly + realize how much he needs You + how impt. it is that he develop a relationship with his mother that is untarnished by Mike's influence.
May Mike realize it is actually a blessing for him not to have gotten his way at least once recently. Otherwise he would never feel the need to examine himself. May he realize it now + not cont. to give in to his need for control, regardless of the damage it causes to others.
Please provide good Christian support for any children involved in this situation. May they be spiritually + emotionally strong.
In Your precious name, amen.
