My mother is pathological

Oh please pray for intercession for me with my mother.

She has been a problem for me throughout my adult life.

At this time she interferes in my relationship with my son, convincing everyone that I am the problem. She does the same thing to my brother’s ex-wife. She interferes and separates people, wanting to be everybody’s go to.

Surely this is an illness.

I am finally calling her on it. I am not going to let her go on it any more. Please pray for us.

I’m praying for you and your mom. May the Lord bless you with patience and may He correct your mom’s behavior.

its better to take these issues to your mental health team. You live with your parents. You are under their roof. This requires respect from you.

I pray you find a way to discuss these things with your mental health team. And maintain a good and loving relationship with your mother while you are under her roof

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.


Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.


Prayer to Our Lady of Mental Peace

O Lady of Mental Peace,
Mother of Tranquility
and Mother of Hope,
look upon cloudsurfer in this time
of weakness and unrest.

Teach her searching heart
to know that God’s Love
for her is unchanging and
unchangeable, and, that
true human love can only
begin and grow by touching
His Love.

Let your gentle Peace -
which this world cannot give

  • be always with her.
    And, help her to bring this
    same Peace into the lives
    of others.

Our Lady of Mental Peace,

  • Pray for us!

Jesus, Help Me!

In every need let me come to You with humble trust,
Jesus, help me!
In all my doubts, perplexities, and temptations:
Jesus, help me!
In hours of loneliness, weariness and trials:
Jesus, help me!
In the failure of my plans and hopes, in disappointments,
troubles and sorrows:
Jesus, help me!
When others fail me, and Your Grace alone can assist me:
Jesus, help me!
When I throw myself on Your tender Love as Savior:
Jesus, help me!
When my heart is cast down by failure, at seeing no good
come from my efforts:
Jesus, help me!
When I feel impatient, and my cross irritates me:
Jesus, help me!
When I am ill, and my head and hands cannot work and
I am lonely:
Jesus, help me!

Always, always, in spite of weakness, falls and short-
comings of every kind:
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, help me and never forsake me!


Oh I so wish I had known how to pray years ago when I had no help! I was in a state hospital with no connection except my mother; she had put me there. I understood at that time that she was “neurologically deficient” like her brother in England, who was in a state hospital there. So she and my father trumped up a reason to put me at the state hospital to cover over sexual abuse. It was terrified and at the same time God worked it to a purpose. The doctor refused to put me at the state hospital as requested by my mother; he sent me home. That night, I took an overdose of my psych meds, not enough to do much harm I thought. But I was damaged by the pain from the catheter in the ICU and I fell into a bizarre state when I woke up. So they put me at the state hospital. I needed
God at that time and I didn’t have any real religious appreciation for a long time afterward. I was mentally and emotionally helpless and terrified of my mother, no one understood how she was to me when no one else was around, how she lied and manipulated. I was so scared. When I finally met my husband she interfered with that too.

Thank you for your prayers. In the here and now I have a grown child who needs help and all this stuff is relevant to HIS well-being as she was a major figure in his upbringing as I was always written off as ill. She didn’t want to be a grandmother, she wanted to sub as a mother. It has been devastating.
