Please pray that God intervenes and influences those at MATC deciding who will get into the nursing program and have favor on my daughter Samantha to get into the program. She has such a gift in this area and as a caretaker. Please dear Lord have favor on Samantha and bless her with admittance into the nursing program so she can secure a good job and do what she has dreamt of. I ask this in Your name Lord?

My mother has been making my wife and me miserable. She keeps trying to cause division between me and my wife (we've been happily married for 5 years) by demanding that I make her do things HER way. Recently, she asked us for a LARGE monetary "loan" that she has been dragging her heels in repaying. She recently got a huge inheritance, so I don't see why she needed it in the first place. It also seems like she has appropriated a HUGE chunk of my portion of the inheritance for herself. I don't want to come across as greedy, it just bothers me that my own mother would be acting this way. My wife and I have recently struggled financially, have a growing business together, and really needed that money. I was trying to honor my mother, gave her the money, and now she has been acting even more wicked than normal lately. All I want is for her to honor her promises to repay, which she repeatedly breaks. My business and family need that money, and I am distressed that those things don't seem to mean anything to her. It is starting to stink like a control issue. My mother doesn't ever visit with her grandchildren (my kids), even though they live nearby, and when she does interact with them or talk about them it is usually in a negative context. My wife and I are really trying to honor God and my mother in all of this. She claims to be a Christian, but has lately been pretty rotten, unfair and unduly harsh. Any advice is welcome.
