A Very Urgent Prayer Request
UPDATE Sept 2021: I have come to believe that Jeff Crippen does not practise what he preaches. He vilely persecuted an abuse victim and spiritually abused many other people in the Tillamook congregation. Go here to read the evidence. Jeff has not gone to the people that he spiritually and emotionally abused. He has not apologised to them, let alone asked for their forgiveness.
This is a rather unusual blog post, but the urgency of the situation requires it. Please pray for one of our friends, a survivor of long time sustained abuse, who was slapped with a HUGE legal bill by her ex-attorney for a divorce that the abuser dragged out on and and and on in the courts. The attorney, knowing that she could not pay, continued to run up the bill and when the case settled, he took her to court and obtained a lien on her house. He notified her today that he intends to foreclose on the house in 30 days. He will own her house. She and the children will be homeless.
And there, that is our “family justice system” in this country.
Please pray that this evil man’s efforts are thwarted and that the Lord would be greatly glorified in it all.
The Egyptians pursued them, all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and his horsemen and his army, and overtook them encamped at the sea, by Pi-hahiroth, in front of Baal-zephon. When Pharaoh drew near, the people of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they feared greatly. And the people of Israel cried out to the LORD. They said to Moses, “Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What have you done to us in bringing us out of Egypt? Is not this what we said to you in Egypt: ‘Leave us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness.” And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” (Exo 14:9-14)
