    I everyone.Without getting into the situation very far,my Mom and I need your prayers.I live with my Mom,she is 72 going on 73,she is a diabetic with Atrial Fibrilation and very bad arthritis in her spine and has been told by two specialists that they cant help her arthritis.

    I am 41 and disabled,I have back trouble from working in a factory for almost 13 years.

    We have been living in the house that is the estate of my Moms Mom and Dad.We dont have a lot of money and as I said,without getting into everything,we may be faced with having to get out of the house and we have no place to go.

    One of my Moms sisters is quite the talent,she only lets people see the "sweet" person that she wants them to see but we know the REAL person that she is.

    There was around 17K dollars that was to pay taxes on the house over the years,this money is gone and we will probably never know what happened to it,the sister in question had control over this money and is the "sweet" person I mentioned above.

    The money should have lasted for several more years but seems to have been spent and gone at least a couple of years ago.

    Please pray for us that the Lord might would allow us to have a place to call our own.

    Thanks everyone.

    Similar Situation

    John I sympathize for you and your Mom. For I myself was almost just like you are now afraid of having nowhere to go.

    Even though my situation is just a little different I know how you feel.

    So with that said.. I say now

    Dear Lord

    I lift up John and his mother to you with the situation they are in.
    Please always provide a home for them like you have me.

    I understand their concern Lord and I ask of you to settle their hearts and
    help them through this situation now and always.

    If they do need to leave Lord lead them to a safe place where they will not
    have to worry about where they will get their next meal, a room to sleep, but especially the love and memories they will provide each other.

    This I pray to you dear Lord Jesus:praying:

    Good Luck John please let us know what happens if you like to say.

    Dear Lord, we are praying for John and his mom who need Your help. May You provide them a place to live. Maybe the answer is in Your speaking to these aunts of his who seem to have some "property-rights". May they do the right thing to their sister and nephew. We know that all things work together for good to those who are called by thy Name. Bless John and his mom with a home and financial help to them. In Jesus' precious name we pray.Amen:1_grouphug:

    Thanks for the prayers.I did try to talk to the aunt yesterday but it didnt go well,she got upset and didnt really want to talk.She seems to be saying that there wasnt that much money and that she did spend it for taxes.

    There is NO way that it was spent on the house,No WAY.We even had a message from her husband wanting to know about the money.

    I know that we are not supposed to say things about people,but this is a woman that can be one of the cruelist people that you can meet,I know how she is and so do some others.She can be the nicest thing to some but to those that really know her and have known her,she can be mean.

    Back when I was a child,my grandma was sending her to the the store for her.Since she was doing so,my grandma told my Mom to come and go with her,we lived next door to my grandma,so she told us to go with my aunt.

    When my aunt came and found out that we were to go too,she would not go,she would not go because we were going too.That is mean.This is only one example.

    Talking to her hasnt helped.

    I ask that all that will to pray for us.We dont really have anyone to turn to and are basically all alone in this situation,we really need the prayers of all that will pray to pray.

    I know that the Lord hears and answers prayers,please pray for us.

    Hi everyone.As I told you in the first post,my Moms health isnt the best and the situation hasnt made things any better.As you can guess,this is a very hurtful thing to her that has taken place.

    I ask that you say a special prayer for my Mom that the Lord will help her to not worry and be so upset over what has happened and that He might bless her with more pleasant time in this life and hopefully for many more years.

    Thank you so much for the prayers that have already been said on her/our behalf.

    James 5:16b
    The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

    Luke 17:6
    And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

    Dear Lord, I want to join in agreement with the above prayer to You concerning John18 and his mother. This appears as an impossible problem,but we have Your promise in the Bible with this same question: "Is there anything
    too hard for the Lord? We all know the answer, give this mother and son the faith to believe that You are going to supply ALL of their needs including food,
    clothes and shelter. Thank You, Lord that we can trust You! In the name of our precious Savior, Jesus. Amen

    I want to PRAISE the LORD and I will tell you why.

    We were at a local grocery store this past week,the 16th actually.I was getting a newspaper out of a stand and a man that I dont know and dont really know if he came from the store or what but he came by me and as he did,he reached out and tapped me on the shoulder and said,"Keep Trusting The Lord".

    This man didnt stop but kept walking as he did this,he went on by me and was still walking toward the side of the parking lot and I dont know what happened to him.I dont know if he got in a car or what.

    I didnt know this man,havent seen him before and he didnt know me.

    The Bible says:Hebrews 13:2
    Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

    I believe that this man or angel was sent from the Lord to give us a sign that things are going to be OK and that everything is going to work out.I believe that we will have a place to live and call our own here in this world.

    I just want to thank the LORD for this and for hearing and answering prayers.

    Thanks to all that have sent up a prayer for us,may the Lord richly bless you.

    Praise be to GOD!!!

    Thank you LORD!!!
