Hope shackled

From a TV preacher:

“Let my friend Sheila Walsh help you escape the shackles that keep you down by finding grace and hope through Christ.”

Oh, dear. Word order is important, isn’t it? Do the shackles find grace and thereby keep you down? I think not.

Kindly suggest a rewrite in the Comment section, before I lose my religion.

  1. I like Stoney’s reply. Here’s another: “Let my friend Sheila Walsh help you escape the shackles that keep you down, and find grace and hope through Christ.” Or here’s another take: “Sheila sheds shackles while shooing you to the shrine.”
