Prayer of the Month


Daughter And Father Healed Of Painful Tonsillitis - Merlin, Bellari, Karnataka

I had severe throat pain and the doctors told me that I was suffering from tonsillitis. My father also had the same problem. Both of us had a boil in the throat on the right side. I underwent an operation but still the pain continued as the boil was still there. I suffered intensely whenever there was a weather change or whenever I ate an ice-cream or anything cold. Even if I consumed a only glass of cold water, I would have pain.

I came to Divine Retreat Centre and offered my pain to our Lord Jesus. I also offered my father’s throat pain to God and begged Jesus for a healing. During the Adoration, I broke down because I continued to have intense pain. Today, I was tempted to eat an ice-cream and after that I noticed, I did not have any pain. To my surprise, the boil had vanished! I was extremely happy and I called up my dad to find out about his throat. I was truly delighted to hear from my dad that the size of the boil which was on his throat had reduced considerably and he did not have any throat pain! The Lord not only healed me but he also heard my prayer and healed my father as well.
