Sacrifice / Prayer Request: Coach's Wife Asks for a Divorce

An important facet of the SportsLeader program is the virtue talk

Paul Passafiume, head football coach at Louisville St Agnes, does these extraordinarily well. He is what I call "positively aggressive". I really recommend you watch this video of him giving a talk on the virtue of sacrifice - the strength to give up a good for a greater good. He blends virtue, football, stories, Emmit Smith's Hall of fame speech and practical tips to help his football players learn how to train their wills and grow to be virtuous men.


I have asked for prayers a few times and so many of you have been kind enough to make these intentions your own. Here is another. This husband and wife have been married for 11 years ...

Please consider praying for this couple. You can see how the virtue of sacrifice is very relevant in our everyday lives by reading this.

Thank you so much. God bless you.


I met with you a few months back, while you were near here for a wedding. I've always been touched by your emails. I am asking for your help. I am at my lowest I've ever been in my life. My faith is being tested. My wife is at a terrible point in her life, very confused, and has asked me for a divorce. We talked for months, and finally she presented me with divorce papers to sign. I have been praying daily to ask for God's guidance and intervention. I am broken hearted. Would you please offer up a prayer for me?
I need God's help as this appears to be out of my hands.

I could use all the prayers I can get. It does appear that God is talking to me, but I may not be patient enough. Everything God shows me is positive...I've asked him that if our marriage is in his long term plans, then I want him to reach into my wife's heart...I am scared...

Thank you.
