Default Is this okay to pray?

This is a personal problem that has been consuming my mind for several days to the point where I cannot get anything productive done. I did not know where to turn with this, but I knew where I COULD turn. I've been praying for a sign as to what to do, I know I can find voices here that will help.
My 82 year old mother called me this week while I was in Southwest Florida fishing and told me that I was the biggest disappointment of her life. This was due to the fact that my evil sister in law had discussed with her my conversation with my brother about my concerns with him getting my mom back together with my feeble dad. They were divorced when I was young and she is always cursed the ground he walked on. This is about the 5th time she is giving me my walking papers Previously she has:
expelled me from our home two days before my senior year of high school to go live in another state.
She sided with my ex wife during an ugly divorce years ago.
After that she wrote a will in which my brother was the sole benefactor of her home and property and everything else.
When I reminded her that as a child she had told me she had seen a clairvoyant and that my dad would soon meet a painful and bloody and violent death and for me to be ready, she says I am fabricating that and carried that around with me for the last 45 years.
My question is, is it okay to pray that this woman is never in my heaven?
I think at this point I am ok if she has spoken her last words to me ever.
I will check back in soon, I have a fishing report to complete that is 3 days late because of that...
Thanks to all.

For those with our Hope being eternal life in Heaven, we should want all people to be able to go there. Our desire should be, like Christ's, that NONE should perish!

Thank you sir. It already makes me feel better just to know hear an answer. I definitely do NOT wish her to perish, in this life or the ever after, but that she can find a heaven without all her disappointments close by ...

Going to heaven is between her and Jesus Christ. If she is saved, she goes. If you are saved, you go. Good news though, according to the King James bible, when you or her get to heaven you have a new glorified body and all this junk from earth will be left on earth. Whether you get along down here or not, you will in heaven IF you even see her in heaven. In heaven, your primary thing to do is sit at the feet of Jesus and sing praises.

If I may explain myself, I consider myself very uneducated religiously, but not non religious. As a youngster I felt that organized church was used as punishment for the mischief I got into during the week so I did not miss going to church once I was on my own...
I only have lots of questions, no ill will.

Pray for her, she obviously needs help from Jesus .Try your best to forgive her, and pray on that too.

On the contrary, you may want to enlighten her that you will be praying for her. The way you described her, it may be hard to pray fer your "enemies" but it will make you feel and be the better person...

Thank you lord.
My prayers have been answered.
My cup runneth over.
Today is a great day.

I can't expound on this too much here (prying eyes), except to say that last night's meeting with my father went exceptionally well. This may have actually brought us closer.


Forever grateful...
