friend in need of God please I need advice

I have a best friend that has been married for 6 months and is now 3 months pregnant. Her husband had surgery and they are having money problems along with other issues. The money problems were an issue before they got married and it's both people's problem. Neither person knows how to manage the money nor do they pay for needs over wants. I'm not sure they understand the difference. Friends in laws promised to help with bills while he was out on surgery but backed out. She's trying to say they can't live off just her check. I know what bills they have and know they can do it if they cut out the wants and only pay for needs. She refuses my help and guidance so I offer God's word to her. They both blame god for putting this on them and I just tell her God doesn't give u more than u can handle. When I start talking the bible she stops responding to me. But then it's like just pray for us is what she puts on social media. I believe that she wants to believe when it's convenient and only then. I want her to know God and his wonder. How can I get her to listen to me. I have been happily married for 10 years and have 2 kids and live in a 1 income household. I am very active in my church and have invited her but she stops responding when I say anything about God church or the bible. I pray for her constantly because I love her but I'm at a loss.

First of all let me say you are doing the right thing by praying for her and being a witness of God.But I encourage you not to give up but pray that God touches her and her husband's heart that God will show them the power of his love through you.That u continue to walk upright before God. The Bible states in Galatians 6:9 -And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap,if we faint not. I encourage you not to get discouraged the Bible states that People come to God when drawn in.Meaning God has to prick their hearts.All we can do is live by example and continue to dhoe them the love of God. Dont give up by sister pray God gives you patience. Hope this was a help to you God Bless :-)
