It was denied because you most likely failed to show cause. Divorce litigation is not something you want to do pro-se when it is a divorce with major war such as your case. He will be prepared for trial and you will not and he will get everything he wants.
You need to hire an attorney, regardless if you can't afford one then borrow money for a friend.

You desperately need to hire an attorney to assist you, as you are probably not presenting the issues properly to the judge, which is why you are being denied at every turn. Borrow the money, sell something, do whatever you need to in order to retain an experienced attorney because once the final hearing occurs, the judge's ruling will be very difficult to change, even if it is an erroneous ruling because the judge didn't properly have all of the necessary evidence. You need to obtain experienced and competent legal representation.
