Yes, I have actually prayed like this, but only with the ones who started my classes and quit, and those who say, “Yeah, I know you offer them 3 times a year, and I know I could have asked for coaching before it was an emergency, but I am sooo busy.” You reap what you sow. Give attitude, get attitude.
One thing the Lord doesn’t ask of me, and that is to suffer fools gladly. Speak the truth, in Love.
I also get those where one spouse attended my classes, but the other was too busy. Not a problem, until I see them together, and the non-committed spouse wants to denigrate the efforts of the one who did attend. The Lord grants me a bit of guilty pleasure in setting that half of the couple straight. Sarcasm is a powerful tool. Even Jesus used it…
But there is the other side. Some get blindsided by life, are new to the church, etc. I’ve had moms whose husbands have walked out on them, and they literally hadn’t had a clue what the financial situation is. I’ve had those who’ve lost a spouse. I even had cases where a parent had run up a bunch of bad credit using their identity, when they were minors. And of course, there are those who have taken the classes, and just need some on-going accountability. Got nothing but compassion and love for these folks, and I will do whatever I can to help them.
