Prayer of the Month


Obeying God’S Will Blesses Family - Effie Monteiro Goa

I am a housewife, married and have a son working for Merchant Navy. My husband works for a Bank. I have attended two retreats at Divine Retreat Centre in September 2007 alone and in May 2008 along with my husband. My only son was studying in UK and facing difficulties in his studies. We were distressed and that’s when my husband and I attended a retreat in 2008. On the first day itself, Fr. Augustine gave a message saying "There are anxious parents of a child studying in UK. God wants you to surrender everything to Him and he will intervene in His own time." We claimed this message and surrendered it all to Him.

During the Inner Healing session, there was a message for my son - "Siddharth, I am the Good Shepherd, I will take care of you." We claimed this for our son and trusted that He would turn everything to our good. After returning home, within a month, my son cleared his oral exams.

During the Physical Healing session, my husband was healed of the severe pain in his right arm. I had calcification in my breast for the last fourteen years as I had lost two babies in late pregnancies. I was getting terrible pain in my breast and left arm. The only medication I took was hot water fermentation and oil massage. During the retreat I was completely healed. Praise and thank you Jesus!
