Freeper Desperately Seeking Prayers (Vanity)
Me | 21 June 2013 | Me

Posted on 06/21/2013 8:40:36 PM PDT by prayerneeded

I apologize in advance for the "vanity" thread. I am not a "spambot" or a "zot." I am a freeper of over twelve years, who is embarrassed and ashamed to use my regular log in for this post.

For those of you who are praying people, please include me in your regular prayers: our apartment landlord has told us that we have to vacate the premises within the next six weeks because, apparently, "we are the problem" as a white, heterosexual thirty-something couple who doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, and doesn't do drugs. We don't have company over, or play loud music or have parties. But all the while, our "ghetto" neighbors (the nicest way I know to put it) are becoming more annoying, threatening and loud with us.

My wife and I spent all week looking for houses, but could not find anything nice in our price range. And this morning, I went to the doctor because of all my stress and anxiety over it all, and they gave me a prescription to help cope with my nerves. Very worried and scared now. Don't want to have to defend myself in a physical confrontation with the ghetto neighbors. And I don't want to be homeless. Exhausted from it all, and don't know what will happen next. Please pray for us. Thank you, and sorry again for the vanity post.

Your sign-up date’s an issue.

Do you have enough for a bus ticket? What church do you attend?

Move to Phoenix, Az. Affordable and conservative family living for the most part.

We’d love to have you:) Don’t be upset, sounds like you will likely be glad to leave Sodom and Gomorra behind.

Prayers for you though:)

Yes I read that. Credibility is fundamental too, this looks like bait. I did, and will again, pray for good fortunes for this FRiend, but other than that won’t get drawn in.

You will find something. Just don’t give up.

Sounds like you will be moving to a better situation soon.
I’ll pray for you tonight.

I have seen this type of post allowed before.

A well established freeper needs advice but would like to remain anonomous from this problem.

Maybe this is an opportunity to get the heck out of the City/Town you are in - I would be looking for work in a new place rather than a house - blessings that your needs are fulfilled.

Prayers for a better neighborhood for y’all. Leave the ghetto dwellers to stew in their own juice....most likely at taxpayers’ expense.

Maybe. But this does not sound like an embarrassing problem. Perhaps I'm an exception, but, if I were being kicked out of my abode for the stated reason, I wouldn't seek anonymity.

How is this embarrassing? Poster, please let me know,

I dunno. If I lived in an apartment with problem renters all around me, and had complaints with all of them. I would expect the landlord to act.

Apparently, the landlord likes his section 8 housing payments more than a lone renter that pays his rent on time.

I would leave me in a quandry as well.

Contact your local Salvation Army. They offer housing assistance to those in dire straights, can refer you to affordable short term housing if you can afford it, and provide other assistance.

That said, suggest moving to another apartment complex, if a good home is not to be found at this time.

So move. For Christians, this world is bus stop. Let God lead you to another bench. Remember that the place he wants you is not likely your first choice.

Sure. Send me your bank account and routing numbers, and I’ll get it right there. I’m a sucker for desperate prayer requests to sponge up a few bucks because someone’s being evicted.

If the mods can confirm this is a FReeper and they are allowing it, then that’s all I need. However, I am in agreement with you that this scenario is nothing anyone would be ashamed about. And in a sense, it rings as racism. Just switch the husband and wife to African-American -— leading a quiet, decent life, but all the white neighbors want them gone.

That’s what I’m seeing here.

Look at this as a positive. You are not happy with the neighborhood, they aren’t happy with you- sounds to me like moving will be a good thing. You may have to put up with less house, but likely will be more comfortable in it. Prayers to you, I know this is stressful but likely a good thing.

It wouldn’t matter if the sign up was just two seconds ago. Offering a prayer for someone, anyone, doesn’t hurt ever.

Yes. I’d probably be in a quandary too. But I can’t see the need for an anonymous post.

I don’t believe it. I think it’s a fishing expedition for some sort of racist replies.

Also, perhaps there is someone at your church who can help through their position with the city/state housing division.

I know that we have a lady at our Church who helps the homeless families find apartments, homes while they are in the Interfaith Hopsitality Network for homeless families.

Any children?

Have you sought legal recourse? From your description, it sounds like you may have a case. You might seek out a lawyer who specializes in landlord-tenant issues.

To find out about low-cost or free legal services that might be available, you can consult the reference librarian at your local public library. In Southern California, many such services are listed in a publication called the Rainbow Resource Directory. This book can be found at many library reference desks in the Southland. Similar publications may be available in other areas as well.

Also, Nolo, a publisher of books on legal subjects geared to laymen has made available several books on landlord-tenant law that are available in many public libraries.
