Please help me pray for my mom who is a baptized Christian but has backslid in the last several years which in turn has caused our family to be cursed with the consequences of her bad decisions. Its like being handcuffed to someone evil when your mother acts bad. But she taught us kids about Jesus & that's why I still think she's a good mom who has done her job in life since teaching your children the way to get eternal life is all that matters in this life. She's worth it to me to pray for her
