I have two unspoken prayer intentions. Please pray that everything works well for me. Thank you and God Bless.

Prayer for the deliverance of a serious oppression and suffocation, that I live in the state of Quebec in Canada.

Since 8 years now, never giving me anything for my work, it is as if I had been imprisoned and locked up here to make me live a deep affliction and a great torment in the state of Quebec.

I cannot make representations to the housing authority for security reasons. I cannot move because for 8 years I have not been paid for my work. The weight of silence and concealment weighs very heavy on my shoulders in the state of Quebec.
