Emergency prayer request- homeless by next week...
« on: October 10, 2013, 12:30:57 PM »
Hey y'all,

 I'm doing my best to remain calm, but my wife and I are facing a serious situation which could leave us homeless by next week.  I've never gone through anything like this before and would sincerely appreciate any prayers you could offer up for us.  Thank you so much.

May Lord be merciful and help you find a way out of your current situation.
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.

A family member has stepped up to help us out, yet things are far from over and the threat of losing our home is still very real.  If you have time, please continue praying for my wife and I.

Who am I the wicked sinner to approach Thee O Lord, Thy Light breaks my darkness, I´m burning inside, cause your love overtakes my hate. But I ask Thee Lord, not for my sake, but for the sake of your loving servant GabrieltheCelt, who has asked me the unworthy to pray for him, to be guided to the the true comfort of your presence, whatever his situation is and will be. By the most humble prayers of Your Holy Mother, and all Thy Saints, have mercy upon us.

Remember that it is good also, and rejoice in your trials.
Luke 6:20
“Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God.
21Blessed are you who hunger now,
for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who weep now,
for you will laugh.
22Blessed are you when people hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil,
because of the Son of Man.
23“Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their ancestors treated the prophets.

24“But woe to you who are rich,
for you have already received your comfort.
25Woe to you who are well fed now,
for you will go hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now,
for you will mourn and weep.
26Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you,
for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets.
The Lord gathers his sheep, I fear I am a goat. Lord have mercy.

Update: I believe we have recieved enough financial assistance to pull us out of this mess.  It really hinges upon the bank tomorrow morning...  I am sincerely humbled by those of you who stepped forward, via PM, to go the extra mile.  And to all of you who have offered prayers, I humbly prostrate myself before you.  I hope I'm not being too melodramatic, but I sincerely believe that this is a life changing event.

 To give you some idea of what this is about- my wife had a miscommunication with our mortgage lender some time ago and because of this, we got behind on our payments.  When I discovered this, they had already turned us over to their lawyers.  I can understand this part.  But I found out through a neighbor that they have announced through various real estate media that our house is scheduled to go into foreclosure and will be up for sale this coming Tuesday the 15th!  We had little warning about them lawyering up, and absolutely no warning about the foreclosure sale.  We'll be checking to see if that is legal for them to do, but right now, we're at the mercy of our bank/lender.  I'm not educated enough to give you the financial/lender terms, but hopefully that explains a little.  If hadn't been for our neighbor alerting us, it would've been too late...

 As I said, we ain't out of the dark just yet.  My wife will be absolutely devastated if we lose our house, but whatever happens I know that God will be there with us.  Never-the-less, I humbly ask that you please continue your prayers if you have time.

That sounds utterly insane.

Will keep the prayers going and glad to hear you have the financial assistance. I can't say anymore since this is the prayer forum.

Update: we're still waiting to hear from the lenders' lawyer to know how much we need to wire transfer to them.  My fears are that, either we won't be able to cover the amount, or we won't receive their email in time to get them their money before the banks close. 

 For clarity- I want to explain that when I said that this was due to a miscommunication with my wife and the lender, by no means was I assigning blame to her.  Also, we have the finances to take care of the back-owed amount; it's the lawyer fees that have stung me to the core.

 Your continued prayers are SO appreciated. :)

 Update:  Despite repeated emails and phone calls sent to their lawyer, we still haven't heard from them.  I really needed to hear from them so that I could have the amount of money they needed to re-instate us.  The only option I felt I had was to go ahead and have our credit union wire them the funds.  I'm positive that the amount I transferred to them will be more than they're asking, so I am praying that that won't affect us negatively; I can see them saying that because it's not the exact amount, they couldn't process it or something.  To make this whole thing even more nerve-wracking, banks will be closed this coming Monday for Columbus Day.  If for some reason the don't get the money, or if they can't accept the transfer because it was too much, the sale will go through on Tuesday and we will have 30 days to vacate and find a place to live.

 BUT, we both have full-time jobs, our health, and are confident that God will provide whether or not it's this house or some other place. 

Thank you all so much for listening and praying for our little problem!  May God bless all of you!

  ...we will have 30 days to vacate and find a place to live.

 

 Update: We will be lucky to have this much time.  I've read that we could have as little time as 24 hrs to pack up and vacate; a near impossible endeavor.  But I've done some research and it seems that for the state of MO, redemption law states that if the loan reinstatement is paid in full anytime before the sale,  the house remains in our possession. 

 Please continue to keep my wife and I in your prayers.  And again, thank you all so very much for the prayers and encouraging PM's you've sent us.  It really means a lot to us.

Thanks and praise to God!
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Glory to God.  Wonderful news. Congrats.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Brothers and sisters,  I just got off the phone with the lender and they received our money and the sale is OFF.  WE GET TO  KEEP OUR HOUSE!!!  Thank you all so so much for your prayers!  You'll never know how thankful my wife and I are for you folks!  A crushing weight has been lifted!

 Glory to Jesus Christ!  Most Holy Theotokos, steadfast protectress, pray for this sinner!


Glory to God indeed! I am so relieved. We'll talk soon.  :)
