Brothers and Sisters, I humbly ask for your prayers during the week of January 20. After more than a year of legal wrangling, I am finally going to court with my former business partner over crooked finances. To make a long story short, he secretly set up an automatic payroll system for himself and adult children (who did not work at our firm) and siphoned away several hundred thousand dollars over the course of many years. He is counter-suing me for $660,000 claiming lost future income and rightful back commissions. In any case, we enter binding arbitration with no appeal in a couple of weeks. All thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated (if you can spare your guardian angel for some hours that week I promise to return the favor in your hour of need ) St Thomas More - pray for us.
