I have Multiple sclerosis and have been sick a lot lately. I don't have any family to help. I bought a small mill house after my divorce in a small town so I could have peace. While I was sick, I had anyone I could check in on my house that I love. All 900 square feet of it, and tried to keep my bills paid. Apparently, my utilities got turned off due to a returned check. I called to apologize and was told they could work with me because of my disability. Whew. I then was told they couldn't because I had a returned check. I had a flare up from stress again and had to be in the hospital for another week. When I got home, I just went strait to bed. The next morning, the city utility people came and locked my utilities (water, gas and electric), and accused me of stealing power? I didn't ever touch my power box. I wouldn't vandalize my own house. I've lived for a week now with no bath, no way to cook, and very very cold. It's in the 20's at night. I've begged city hall. They won't even talk to me. They tacked on so much for my payment I can't possibly afford to have them ever turned back on at this point. I told them I didn't do it but they don't care. I need help! Please. This is miserable. They are asking for 1,600.00 in a very poor area? After I had to put down 400.00 because I didn't have enough credit when I moved here. I was told the utility situation was tough here, but I had no idea. I'm nowhere near the only person suffering. I worked every day raising a family and a having a full time job til I got sick 7 years ago. My dignity and this little house is all I have left. And that's enough for me. If I don't freeze. They're like bullies in middle school. I told them I didn't do anything wrong but it's my house so it's my responsibility and they won't even answer me. They have all the power because the utilities come in one bill from city hall. I'm not even sure who the utility companies are. All I want is to be in my home and decently warm and be able to cook food and bathe. Not a lot. I do pay my bills with all the money I get. I'm not a thief.  Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for reading.

I'm so sorry your in this situation. And im sorry it's been so long for a reply.
I do not understand American laws so I cannot help you in those terms,
however I just wanted to say I admire your comment  "My dignity and this little house is all I have left. And that's enough for me."
:) my friend you are already a better person than many. You can and will cope with what is happening day by day.
Can you get a real wood fire stove into your house? you can get your water and heating without the use of public utilities, if you have wood locally available it is a much cheaper way of living.
As for the electric... solar or wind, save what you would have been paying them and invest in your own utilities?
I'm sure you'll get through it, try thinking outside of the box :)

1. Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me; Body of Christ, save me; Blood of Christ, inebriate me; Water from the side of Christ, wash me; Passion of Christ, strengthen me; O good Jesus, hear me; within Thy wounds, hide me; let me never be separated from Thee; from the evil one, deliver me; at the hour of my death, call me and bid me come to Thee, that with Thy saints, I may praise Thee forever and ever. Amen.

2. Prayer Against Malefice from the Greek Ritual

God, our Lord, King of ages, All-powerful and All-mighty, You Who made everything and Who transform everything simply by Your will. You Who in Babylon changed into dew the flames of the ‘seven-times hotter’ furnace and protected and saved the three holy children. You are the doctor and the physician of our soul. You are the salvation of those who turn to You.

We beseech You to make powerless, banish, and drive out every diabolic power, presence, and machination; every evil influence, malefice, or evil eye and all evil actions aimed against Your servant [name of person/s]. Where there is envy and malice, give us an abundance of goodness, endurance, victory, and charity.

O Lord, You Who love man, we beg You to reach out Your powerful hands and Your most high and mighty arms and send the angel of peace over us, to protect us, body and soul. May he keep at bay and vanquish every evil power, every poison or malice invoked against us by corrupt and envious people.

Then, under the protection of Your authority may we sing, in gratitude, ‘The Lord is my salvation; whom should I fear? I will not fear evil because You are with me, my God, my strength, my powerful Lord, Lord of peace, Father of all ages.”

Yes, Lord our God, be merciful to us, Your image, and save your servant [name of person/s] from every threat or harm from the evil one, and protect him/her by raising him/her above all evil. We ask You this through the intercession of our Most Blessed, glorious Lady, Mary ever Virgin, Mother of God, of the most splendid archangels and all Your saints. Amen!

3. Prayer for Deliverance

My Lord, you are all powerful, you are God, you are Father. We beg you through the intercession and help of the archangels Michael, Raphael and Gabriel, for the deliverance of our brothers and sisters who are enslaved by the evil one. All saints of Heaven, come to our aid.

From anxiety, sadness and obsessions, we beg You. Free us, O Lord. From hatred, fornication, envy, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From thoughts of jealousy, rage, and death, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From every thought of suicide and abortion, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From every form of sinful sexuality, we beg You, Free us, O Lord.

From every division in our family, and every harmful friendship, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From every sort of spell, malefic, witchcraft, and every form of the occult, we beg You, Free us, O Lord.

Lord, You Who said, “I leave you peace, My peace I give you,” grant that, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, we may be liberated from every evil spell and enjoy your peace always. In the name of Christ, our Lord. Amen.
