Requested by: ann on 12/2/17 Dear Mary, I am asking for prayers for myself that I have no comments  when Courtney tells me he gambles because he does not want help and anything that  I do say is wrong.    Reveal to Courtney that I do not care if he gambles   his money and it is not my business how he spends his money.   I have prayed for him to quit gambling  because I thought quitting would make him happier but he just keeps gambling.  I understand your message God that you are trying to tell me.  My prayer Father God right now  is for youGOD   to tell him that because he gambles he does not have money for gifts for the others.  Also, Father God show him what a double standard it is to think Jules should get his act together when he models that smoking and gambling are fine. Father God touch his heart that when he compares my shopping to his gambling that they are not the same because I pay my bills off monthly and the truth is I sometimes go months not buying things for myself and I invest in my retirement. Also, father God give him the message that the reason he does not want me to tell friends and family because it is not right.  Father God I am asking that he reflect on all that I have done for him... vacations, clothes, things for his apartment,  nice things for his children,  concert tickets, pirate tickets ,steeler tickets and in return he is , make passive aggressive comments that are untrue. Reveal Father God to Courtney that when you make comments that are not true it is to make up for his shortcomings.Truthfully, I feel really bad that he made the comment about buying me a Christmas gift. It does hurt to be at the bottom of someone's list and they had a year to save and plan. Father God change my think so I do not feel bad.  Amen

Praise the Lord! Gladys & Sydney ? my younger sister and her husband, have unauthorizedly occupied 2nd fl of my house for the last 6 years.    There is heavy leakage on the 2nd fl, all the taps are leaking and it needs repairs and then the entire house needs to be repaired.   They have their own house which they have rented out and pretend not to have any income for their survival.  Very rarely they stay on the 2nd fl.  They stay most of the time with their daughter.  One of family friends intervened, sister has put forward a big demand which I am not in a position to give as I am totally depending on the rental income.  I am rheumatoid arthritis patient and a senior citizen.  I took legal advice and have been told to file an eviction suit, which not only is expensive but time consuming.  I want an amicable settlement.  Pl pray that the issue is settled amicably.
