Prayers still needed for my legal situation
« on: June 01, 2010, 11:03:44 AM »
Praise be to our great and merciful God, who delivered me from the false criminal accusations that a man brought against me! He had claimed that I had damaged his property, which is entirely false. Thank you all for your prayers. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your kindness in praying for me.

Now, I face civil litigation. His insurance company is trying to recover their loss, which is significant. I am not, by any means, a wealthy man. I live pay check to pay check. Besides, I did not damage his property! Please continue to pray for me that our Lord will deliver me from this, as well. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Lord, have mercy!

Also, we beseech the prayers of Saint Nektarios of Pentapolis, against whom were brought accusations, but he was seen to be righteous in the end.  Holy Bishop Nektarios, pray for for gregoryh!
Pray that God would deliver me from hatred and pride.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Gregory:

I rejoice in the Lord that you have been found innocent of the false criminal charges that were made against you!  May our merciful God protect you from this false civil litigation that this insurance company is trying to lay at your feet. May our merciful Saviour defend you against all false charges and rest assured of our supplications on your behalf.  Please keep us posted on your situation so that we can know how it is going.

In Christ,

Tikhon

Thank you all for your fervent prayers!  Our all-mericiful God is gracious and hears the prayers of His children and delivers us in our time of need. Alleluia!

I don't really know how the damage to the house occured, although I have my theories.  For all I know it could have been an accident (a pipe was allegedly disengaged and caused water damage.) I just know that I am innocent.  I am not protecting anyone, by the way.  I believe that God will deliver me, just as He did with the criminal charge.  (The case went to trial and I was acquited.)  I hope that He will deliver me before I have to go through another trial, but He knows best.

Again, thank you for your prayers.  Please continue to pray for me until this is over.  I will keep you posted.

Humbly,

Gregory

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
