    A Christian told me to read Palsms 35 and 121 to help me with some problems we are experiencing. After 3 yrs. of a string of trouble from all sides. I have been kicked out of a house which I paid 15 years on. My father evicted us so he could sell and bank the money. He hurt my two young sons at the time, only house they ever knew Lord. So much has gone wrong. Plea for strength from our Lord,Amen.
