Some background: I am in the process of getting a divorce. My mother has put all the blame on my sister for “causing” it to happen (which is absolutely not true), to the point that she will no longer speak to her.
I was surprised to learn that my mother and a friend of hers have started praying a Catholic prayer called a “novena” where they are asking God to “take down” my sister, to “punish” her for what she has done (in their minds). Apparently they will keep praying this prayer until “something bad happens to her.”
Personally, I find this shocking and do not believe there is any biblical basis for this. I would love to hear any thoughts on this!
