True Confession: ‘My mother-in-law is the cause of my barrenness’

“Dear Editor,

My name is Blessing, a 42-year-old married woman without a child and I just discovered that my mother-in-law has been the one behind my barrenness.

I have been married for 15 years without a child and my husband’s family has been making life a living hell for me. But little did I know that my mother-in-law is the one behind my predicament and she has been the one always making life hell for me.

All through the years that I have been married, my husband and I have tried every means to get a baby but all have been in vain. We have visited several hospital and spiritual homes with no luck.

All the tests we have taken has shown that there is nothing wrong with me or my husband; the doctors telling us to be patient as the babies would start coming but try as much as we have done, we have not been able to have a baby.

We prayed, fasted, took fertility drugs all to no avail. My husband’s family, on the other hand, was not making things easy for me. My mother-in-law, especially, was always abusing me, calling me despicable names anytime our paths crossed while my husband’s sisters insulted me openly and called me unprintable names.

In all of these, I kept praying to God to intervene and make me a mother to shame my detractors but it was as if God had abandoned me as the more I cried, the more I kept wallowing in the pains.

But thank God for my husband who stood by me and made sure I did not bear the pains alone. He kept assuring me that no matter what, he still loved me and would never hearken to the demands of his family members to get another wife.

However, two weeks ago, a friend of mine invited me to a deliverance program in her church and that was when the source of my predicament was revealed and I now know who is behind my problems.

At the service tagged ‘Breaking All Yokes’, the prophet called me out in the middle of the program and told me that my mother-in-law was the reason I was unable to have my own child.

The man of God said she had sold my womb to her coven and the covenant was buried under a tree in front of her compound.

He told me point blank that it is only when the tree is uprooted and the pot taken out and broken that I would be able to have a baby. However, he gave a caveat that when the pot is broken, my mother-in-law would die a miserable death as her covenant with her secret cult members was that I would only have a baby over her dead body.

Now, my problem is how to break this news to my husband who loves his mother so much and he would not agree that she is the brain behind my problems.


Dear readers, after going through Blessing’s story on True Confession today, we would want you to advise her on what to do in this situation.
