Shelter in a scandalous sexual abuse situation


#1

My father lies to my own face saying the abuse never happened and I have walk on eggshells here. I have to live with them because I am disabled and divorced. I don’t have enough money to live on my own. I am trying to get back together with my ex husband. Also this is a very pleasant house and garden and I am always tempted to stay here but there is this insidious evil.

The main thing I want prayers for is safety as I read the book the therapist gave me last week on sexual abuse–by a Christian author. So far it is very good. But my mother is something of a mind reader and I am literally afraid to pick the book up. What I have read so far has already helped me.

Thank you in advance for your prayers.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.


Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed 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.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10
