Unhappy DESPERATION: Please pray I get someone to listen to me.

Dear Friends, PLEASE forgive me for this thread being so long. I'm so sorry it's a long read. Maybe you can get comfortable and read it as you would a book.

I'm not able to see my Father as some of you know. I am disabled, my Dad is 81 years old and a VETERAN and the woman he was scammed into marrying severed all ties of my Dad's family so we could not intervene with her holding on to my Daddy's money. She is younger and does not love him. This scam has names and had been going on for years!

Being disabled and not seeing my Dad is a shameful injustice. Yet, the legal system here will not help, Attorneys will not pro bono, they want money and some are not doing things legally. Plus, Legal Aid here is a horrible acting agency and has many complaints against them by other people. Adult Protect Services are weak. The VA doesn't care. I hope I don't get trouble in for stating agencies but it's true.

What I need since no one believes me and Attorneys hired by my Dad's wife have rubbed my name in the mud. (So of course I'm not believed) is a influential, effective and powerful person. Perhaps the President or the Attorney General in Washington D.C. Just saying. Plus, I'm the only one of my Dad's family members fighting for justice for ALL of us.

A third party taking care of my Dad's assets, finances etc...are doing criminal acting practices against their clients. Know that for sure. And they are listening to my Dad's wife. They want to keep the money that the Courts retained for them which is a lot that comes out of my Dad's finances. And all they do is sit on his papers and tell my Dad's family they have to be supervised or not see him at all. The ones out of state have not warranted this horrible sentencing. I've seen my Dad three times in 9 months and not one time, have I caused any drama as they are saying. Yet, my Dad's wife twists things around and the 3rd Party listens. An episode happened in the grocery store where they were there and Daddy wanted to talk to me. His wife slammed and yelled at me. I did not yell at her. Except to tell her to quit bullying me and that was said with assertiveness. Now I can't see my Daddy at all and my heart is shattered in a million pieces. Furthermore, he lived with me for 2 1/2 years and he told me I took great care of him. Have witnesses who heard that.

When I became disabled, it was horrible. I lost a lot of weight and could not eat and the pain was so excruciating, I wonder how I survived it. (To date; I still have pain and suffer on a daily basis.) Plus, Daddy traveled 1,200 miles to help me twice a month. He cleaned my house, made meals and tried to get me to eat and cleaned up afterwards. Every hospital I went and believe me I went to many to help cure me, he would find me and if he couldn't come, he would call me every day. He was sick with worry about me. We were both younger then and Daddy didn't have dementia. My Father is precious to me.

All I'm asking is prayers to Saints who take care of justice, perhaps St. Joan of Arc for help in guiding me with wisdom and help to find that one person who has great influence and believes my family of the injustice happening to us. I also want to get the word out to other people to iron clad their elders money and not let a third party take care of it. No telling what they can do. I've also talked to people about this and some have said the same thing has happened to them. Even a NUN told me it happened in her family!

Please, please pray for me. My Daddy doesn't deserve the treatment she is dishing out. She is a controlling and I fear she is abusing Daddy. Well, I've seen it. And if he passes on without us seeing him, I will cry a river of tears for the rest of my life and feel guilty that I've could have done more even though I've been told I've gone far and beyond. Even went to court against four Attorneys by myself. I actually want Guardianship.

It's all about money. If I had it, I could retain the best Attorneys we have. But alas, I don't have money: not enough to even live on. Which also makes me scared and anxious.

I need a miracle.

Thank you for praying for me in the past and I hope God blesses you with the best of blessings and helps you through your sorrows and trials. Hurts my heart to know you all suffer. I will also pray for you for I really care for all of you. What I say is genuine and real and no joke.

Love ya'll,
Sheila

Prayer "Every day I Need You Lord.."

Every day I need You Lord
But this day especially,
I need some extra strength
To face what ever is to be.

This day more than any day
I need to feel You near,
To fortify my courage
And to overcome my fear.

By myself, I cannot meet
The challenge of the hour,
There are times when humans help,
But we need a higher power.

to assist us bear what must be borne,
and do dear Lord, I pray-
Hold on to my trembling hand
And be near me today.
Amen.

Our Father, which art in Heaven
Hollowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven

Give us this day, our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us

Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
Amen

Oh my Jesus
Forgive us our sins
Save us from the fires of hell
And lead all souls to Heaven
Especially those in most need of thy mercy
Amen

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee
Blessed art thou amongst women
ANd blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus

Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners
Now and at the hour of our deaths
Amen

Glory be to The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be
World without end
Amen

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

Have tried looking at any online resources?

I am so sorry that your father is suffering in his old age, and that you have to suffer the heavy emotional and physical toll. Unfortunately, legal and financial exploitation of the elderly--especially those with memory problems--is shamefully common.

Merciful God, we ask you to give us your justice for Sheila, her father, and their loved ones, protect them against the wicked, and provide for him trustworthy people who can support his needs. Amen.

I'm listening and praying. I've gone through the similar problems while taking care of my family members. Maybe St. Jude can help, I will pray to St. Jude for you.
God bless you

I hug all of you. I pray to Holy Mother, and all the Saints and St Jude and all the Attorneys that are saints. Like St. Thomas Moore. Thank you, Oh thank you, oh thank you! In June another court battle will ensue and I have to go in with strength from others on my side. I know the St Attorneys will be there and Jesus most of all, but I need one on earth who will believe me and know what I say is true.

Love ya'll,

Sheila

Praying for your intentions….

Lord Jesus, You have said, "Learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart." With confidence in Your loving heart which offers rest to weary souls, we come to You in this time of special need. In Your unfailing love, read the prayer that is written on our hearts, and grant the grace that we ask of You, in accordance with Your holy will. In Your name we pray. Amen.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother, to thee I come, before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate! Despise not my petitions, but, in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
