Interesting. The post starts with a request for prayer and ends with an advance thank you for said prayers, with a superfluous god mention in the middle. But everything else was a request for practical assistance, up to and including suggesting that someone might consider buying them a house to rent. She even identifies locations for pete sake!
So, apparently your stepmother is a typical believer, in that she claims belief in an interventionist god who knows everything and sets her path for her, but ALSO knows that the only help she is going to get will come from human beings - and that she can't depend on god to deliver the message. She asks for prayers AND practical assistance to be provided by humans. Keeps her bases covered with god, and still gets the message to the only entities that are able to assist.
