Mother is a stumbling block

I’m in need of SERIOUS prayer because my mother is a mountainous stumbling block in my life. I need prayer to be delivered out of her house quickly. I can change, but I can’t change her – especially because she denies ever doing any wrong in her entire life and takes no responsibility for anything. Since I was a child my mother has spoken poverty, loss, destruction and loneliness over my life and the life of my younger sister. She declared that she did not believe in GOD and stopped going to church and stopped taking us all together while I was still in elementary school. My mother has taken us with her to tea leaf readers, psychics and voodoo priests trying to see into the future and get money, love and success. She also used the horoscope and had me doing the same thing until I got THE WORD and banished all of the witchcraft.

She excluded me from activities her and my younger sister participated in. She did not treat me right and told me she wished she had never had any children since I was very young. I am in a situation where I have no choice but to live with her after being in a hellacious relationship that I had to flee from. I am begging for your prayers because I feel I am going to lose it on her and I do not want to lose my blessings because of her. I am grateful to all who take the time to pray for me.

What do YOU think?

    Addy, Peer, MelodyCat, Timothy Luke and everyone else who has prayed for me – I am so very grateful for your prayers and advice. I agree that it is within my own power to overcome the deep seeded bitterness and anger that have built up over a lifetime. However, it doesn’t help me to have to experience my mother’s “demons” on a daily basis. I am very happy to say that I am doing MUCH MUCH better than I was when I asked for prayer. I believe your prayers have made a real difference. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. GOD bless you all.

      Gald to hear you are having some victory in your situation with your mother. Keep in God’s Word there you will find the soothing balm of healing and gain the strength to resist the feelings of anger and bitterness Satan is trying to constantly stir up in you.

      Continuing to pray for you and you family. May the Lord draw you near so that you are able to be comforted by His presence and healed from your past hurts. May the Lord bring His gospel message to your family and give them spiritual eyes and ears to be able to understand it, repent and be saved. amen

    Praying for your situation. Keep in God’s Word and pray for the Lord to help you each day. God knows better than I do what you need and how best to provide for you.

    I have mentally ill family who can drive a person into having a screaming match with them. They just seem to know how to wind you up.

    Dear Lord

    I cut off all demonic attacks off Carla and pray for full deliverance from all witchcraft and curses spoken over her life in Jesus Name. Praying for Your peace that passes all understanding to keep her heart and mind in Christ Jesus. Praying Lord you will guide her each day with Your wisdom and guard her lips so she only speaks that which is edifying and glorifies you. Heavenly Father praying you would bring about the ability for Carla to have financial independence and be able to have a place of her own so she can have time to herself and be free from the oppresive situation of living with her family. Praying for Your will for her life and for Your blessings upon her. Praying for her healing in Jesus Name. Amen

    I hope you get a break through soon. It is stressful to live with those who can easily drive you to lose it. However, we know the Lord promises to help us cope with whatever trobles we face in life. Keep turning to God, He is able to work things out for your good.

    My favourite scriptures in the New Testament are in Romans 8 they are such a comfort to me when I am going through a really hard time. Here are some verses that I often read and pray over.

    RO 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died–more than that, who was raised to life–is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:
    “For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
    RO 8:37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Hi CarlaforJesus.

    I am praying for you, and can completely identify with your situation. I must say, I disagree with some of the advice you’ve been given here. While it is imperative to overcome bitterness and allow the Lord to work forgiveness and peace in your heart, I also see in the scriptures where we are advised to separate ourselves from the people, places and situations that cause those feelings to be constantly churned up in us i.e. stumbling blocks. There can be no reconciliation of relationship as long as your mother refuses to acknowledge the problem. Without repentance on her part, you are being re-wounded over and over again, so that wound never has a chance to heal.

    Here are some verses to consider:

    matt 18
    15 “If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over. But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector.

    (I realize your mom isn’t a believer, but Jesus’ admonition was to separate from those who refuse to listen to truth.)

    matt 12
    46 While He was still speaking to the crowds, behold, His mother and brothers were standing outside, seeking to speak to Him. Someone said to Him, “Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside seeking to speak to You.” But Jesus answered the one who was telling Him and said, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, He said, “Behold My mother and My brothers! “For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother.”

    2 Cor 6:17
    14 Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, “I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. “Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE,” says the Lord. “AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you. ” And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,” Says the Lord Almighty.

    matt 19
    29 “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life.

    Finally, Rom 12
    18 If possible, SO FAR AS IT DEPENDS ON YOU, be at peace with all men.

    My advice is to pray for peace while you must live under the same roof, but actively seek a new place of residence. Johovah Jirah will provide your every need as you seek to do his will.

  4. Hi Carla-

    From what you write it seems that your mother is an oppressed woman. Because this has been ongoing for so many years it has become a mountain in your spirit. Carla, the mountain is not the negative atmosphere in the house or your mother- it is in your spirit,

    Do I believe that your mother will change? That I can’t say. But Carla what is important is that you change. You need to conquer this mountain- you need to become a conquerer and the path to do this, is faith and love.

    Carla the Spirit’s message to me is that you must begin to apply (1) faith, (2) forgiveness towards your mother and (3) sacrificial love.

    If you diligently work on these three matters, you will receive a great blessing. The way forward is not to pray for deliverance out of the house of oppression but deliverance while you are yet in the house of oppression.

    Jesus has promised you, “peace that passes understanding”. (Philippians 4: 6, 7) You must pray to the Lord for just this peace, believing that you will receive it. If you are unable to believe you will receive this peace, then no prayer will suffice. Each day, rise up and earnestly pray for the “Peace that Passes Understanding” and repeat this through the day.

    You have been hurt by your mother, your hurt flows over into your posting. Your inner house has to be cleaned before you can receive God’s peace- and unforgiveness is a pustule which soils the spirit.

    I have been there myself- hurt and abused, not once but many times.

    Don’t allow your mother’s burden to crush you. If she knew better she would not have done these things. The responsible party is Satan and who knows what injuries your mother has suffered in her life.

    Forgiveness begins with a decision

    You must make a decision- do you wish to walk with God and receive His Peace or do you wish to walk in anger and be exposed to Satan’s devices? You must wrestle with these two options. .

    All that is required is for you to make a firm decision to forgive your mother, once taken, submit this to the Father, asking the Father to work forgiveness in your spirit. Every day offer this prayer- and thank God for the work He is doing. Yes “is doing” for when we pray that God works forgiveness, the work begins immediately- like any new life, it takes time for the seed to mature to be noticeable.

    Sacrificial love

    Finally be kind to your mother. If she is abusive, ignore her abuse. Seek opportunities to demonstrate your love. Take on chores for her etc. The key is to completely ignore any and all ungodly behavior that flows from her. Be determined that you will be Christ to her- and Christ is love, not words. Carla, your mother probably has never experienced love in her entire life- and for this reason, she has been unable to express love to you. You have received love- the Father’s love, His Son’s Love- now Return the gift you have received, be kind, sincere and seek to bring her joy- to melt her spite seek to assist her in all ways.

    ” do not render evil for evil” (1Th 5:15). Be a warrior- let love conquer evil!


    Decide on forgiveness and pray that the Lord wmorks forgiveness in your spirit. Stand on the Word of God and cry out for that Peace that Passes Understanding and as it arrives, share this with your mother. I assure you- results will flow and the blessing that God has for you will arrive quickly.

    If you do not do this- there will be no peace, no joy for by trans locating you will be carrying the mountain with you. Let love conquer the oppression and then any move you make will be one of renewal and power! .

    with love- Peer.

  5. Timothy Luke says:

    Hi Carla, Michael and I will be praying for your deliverance and peace. Thank you for sharing your situation. I pray you would be strengthened in the power of His might and sheltered under the shadow of His wings. Your Father loves you very much. Take refuge in Him and do not fear. Continue to love your mom and pray for her. May the Lord provide you a place of peace. Honor the Lord in all your relationships and He will honor you. May He give you wisdom and eyes to see where you may have open doors for the enemy to come in as he has.

    Blessings and peace,

      Thank you very much for taking the time to respond and pray for me. I am very grateful to everyone who has prayed for me. I’m trying my best to honor my mother, although it is extremely difficult. The best thing for me is to get out of her home and into my own which I am working on very hard. GOD bless always.

    • Hello Carla, i pray that you may have peace like a river. I pray for the salvation of your mother. May Jesus walk in her life and put all her spiritual foolishness/wickedness to shame. May God open her eyes. May there be love between you and your mother. You need her blessings and I pray that Jehovah Gibbor take over this battle by intervening in a divine way.
      I will be praying for your specifically for divine direction.
