Prayer of the Month


Hole In Heart And Other Ailments Healed! - Isabel Mascarenhas, Goa

I am a beautician, married and have two sons. I attended five retreats at Divine Retreat Centre in 2001, 2002, 2007 and twice in 2008. I have received many blessings and healings, spiritual and physical and have learnt to forgive and do good to those who hurt me. The Word of God preached by the priests and preachers has powerfully touched my heart and changed me completely. At every retreat I was cleansed by His Precious Blood and filled with the Holy Spirit. The hole in my heart which was 21 mm in size for which surgery was required was closed completely and the Lord gave me a new heart. There was no possibility of another child but I was blessed with another son on Easter Sunday fourteen years after my first child and without any problem. I am healed of my knee which was severely injured during an accident which required urgent surgery. I had a small cyst on my foot which disappeared miraculously when I returned home after the retreat. I also used to get ulcers in my mouth and it was a great discomfort for me. I had taken treatment but it recurred. During the physical healing service, the ulcers in my mouth disappeared. Praise the Lord!

During my retreat in 2007, my son who was wearing spectacles from the time he was seven years of age was healed and does not have to use them anymore. He also passed with a first class in Std. XII and got admission to study the degree course BBA in the college that he wanted. I thank and praise the Lord that within a month it was possible for my son and also his friends to come here along with me and glorify God’s name. Praise and thank you Jesus!
