Thank You so much for the prayers of those who stand with me on Alicia's behalf. You know what Mark is really like, + how Alicia is a people-pleaser. She has become that way in part because of her father's volatile nature, being a peacemaker, + those years when I was so sick. In the past when she has mentioned to Mark that she felt her efforts were not being reciprocated, he always came up with an excuse. At some point she is going to have to wake up + see how false his excuses are. I pray that will happen soon. She has already wasted 2 years of her life on him, although I know You can teach her much from the experience.
Please show Alicia what You really want for her. You have warned us not to allow ourselves to become unequally yoked. Being young + naive, she thinks she can work things out. Mark will not go to church with her, so I fear being with him will ultimately compromise her faith. Please open her eyes soon to where she is headed. May she see the situation as You see it. May she recognize that she made a choice without consulting You, + that is always a bad idea. If it be Your will, please dissolve this relationship as soon as possible. Protect her heart, her spirit, + her finances from Mark. May she not make a decision to commit to him. It will only bring her more heartache, pain, + long-lasting repercussions. Thank You for what You have done so far. May this situation bring glory to You. In Jesus' name, amen.
