Prayer request for my mother. I believe she is either demon possessed or at least heavily harassed daily. Her temper has become vicious and unreasonable and has only gotten worse as she has gotten up in age. It would take a miracle as character does not change over night. Her only hope is deliverance. Please pray for my mother, Liz. Thanks :'(

CP I have prayed for your Mother Liz and will continue to do so. This is a very sad and heartbreaking situation for you to face. But it is our privilege to lift her up to the Healer of every malady. It also gives you an opportunity to show her God's love by your patience and compassion. God will give you the grace you need.

Yes, we will pray for your mother, cp. None have a character so bad that Jesus cannot transform it. We read in Scripture of demon possessed that were delivered from their demons. So, it is today, Jesus does not change. He can heal the sick today as well. We are living witnesses of the greatest miracle God can do, recreate us in His image.

While it takes time to produce an abundant harvest of fruit in the life, at conversion you mother can have all of the fruits of the Spirit right then and there! This radical transformation of character, Jesus can do in a moment. But, conversion is the end of a long protracted process of wooing by the Holy Spirit. As Sister Doreen has encouraged you, for many years your character has been testifying to the miracle of conversion to your mother.

You are the very best tool in God's hand to lead your mother to Jesus. As you demonstrate every one of the fruits of the Spirit when in great difficulties, you are witnessing to her the miracle of God that He wants to give her.

Heavenly Father, we come to you asking that you give our dear Brother colporteur, wisdom and grace to continue to minister to his mother. We pray for the angels and the Holy Spirit to work in ways they would not have worked if we had not prayed for this dear mother for whom you suffered and died. We thank you for answering this prayer in the very best way you can. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

Yes, the problem is that we do not get along. She is in a nursing home because she is nigh well impossible to be around and cannot always take of herself as she is on a lot of meds going from doctor to doctor to doctor to doctor. She holds a lot of grudges and is bitter to the bone. Last time we talked on the phone she was so mad about the people in the home she was talking about killing them and " somebody ought to hang her" type stuff. She does not mean it but it sounds terrible. I have told her before that I will not talk to her if she keeps talking that way plus that is not good stuff to have someone potentially record. She accused my daughter of something entirely untrue. When I told her to don't go there she cussed me out and hung up the phone. She has never really surrendered her heart to God so naturally she is not happy and she has always had a hot temper. Whenever we talk very early on she goes on a rant and just keeps it up. My brother lives close to her but she gets in between him and his wife. He is on his fourth wife and knows not the Lord either.

cp, that makes your love for her even more a witness of the grace of God. And, yes, you must protect your children from her until they are mature enough to love her and withstand the assaults.  We will continue to pray for your family.
