Exclamation Harassment, fuel lines sabotaged, need your prayers

Please pray for me. I am currently experiencing extreme harassment. This harassment began in December of last year and has continued with only brief lulls since then. I have received verbal threats, been repeatedly insulted, and been made to fear for the safety of my belongings. This harassment has reached an entirely new and potentially deadly level. The fuel lines in my car were tampered with and resulted in my car dying in the middle of the road today with gasoline pouring out from my vehicle. The mechanic who looked at my car confirmed that in his professional opinion (and those of several colleagues) my car was intentionally vandalized.

I know with near certainty who the parties responsible for this latest crime are. The same two people who have been harassing me for the past 5 months. They harassed me just the day prior to my fuel lines being sabotaged. I filed a police report, but the local authorities have told me that even though they too agree with my suspicions regarding these people that they can do nothing unless the culprits are caught in the act. Otherwise all of my evidence is "circumstantial".

I will hopefully only need to put up with these people for another few weeks before they will be moving out of the area. But I ask that you please pray for me until that time.

Please also pray for these two individuals who have been harassing me. I won't lie, I am filled with anger towards them and have been tempted with thoughts of retaliation. But I ask that the best weapon be used against them, the weapon of prayer. Please pray that they will see how foolish and cruel what they have been doing has been and repent.

Thank you all in advance for your prayers.

Hi jtodisco,

Back in 1989, my car caught fire while I was driving it because the fuel line broke. I was rescued by two strangers only minutes before the car filled up with thick black smoke and the glass in the driver's side window melted and exploded inwards ... Both the police and the insurance people told me how extremely rare it was for anyone to survive such an event.

Praying for your safety ...

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among 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 death.
Amen

May God give you his justice and keep you and your loved ones' safety and assurance in his hands at this dangerous time, and turn your enemies toward remorse and full repentance.

"If you say, ‘The Lord is my refuge,’
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent."

(Psalm 91:9-13)

I will pray for you - particularly your physical well-being and safety.

I will pray for your harassers that they will have a change of heart.

God bless,
Bryan

Prayer for Our Enemies

Jesus, Prince of Peace,
you have asked us to love our enemies
and pray for those who persecute us.
We pray for our enemies and those who oppose us.
With the help of the Holy Spirit,
may all people learn to work together
for that justice which brings true and lasting peace.
To you be glory and honor for ever and ever. Amen.

Prayers out to you.

PS - You might consider getting an security camera pointing at your car and capture them in the act. Game cameras w/ motion detection will take pictures and short clips and you can get them fairly cheap. Just an idea

Thank you all for your prayers.

This has been a very trying time. I found out from the mechanic who is repairing my vehicle that not only is he sure that this was done deliberately, but that whoever did it vandalized my car in such a way as to make sure gasoline would only leak out of my car while it was being driven. I am shocked and disgusted by the viciousness that these two people have shown toward me. I have never experienced such irrational and untamed hatred in my entire life.

I intend to get a restraining order as soon as possible. Unfortunately the local police have not been as helpful in this matter as I would have hoped. They share my suspicions, but seem unmotivated to do much about it at this time. I hope that when I speak to the police again today that they may take this matter more seriously since by now they will have spoken to my mechanic as well about the nature of this vandalism.

Please, please continue to pray for me and also for these two sick people.
