Prayer of the Month


The pain in my back was healed and my family accepted the Lord - G. Edline Delsin Coimbatore, India

This is my fifth visit. Since 1987 I have been suffering from backache. In 1991 I underwent an operation. After a year I had severe pain. I took all types of country medicine and as the pain did not go I took root treatment for thirty days but no relief. On 15 February 1995 by the glory of God I was healed at a Tamil retreat that I attended at DRC. That was my first retreat.

After my healing, a family of four members accepted the Lord. With faith and prayer I gave the blessed oil that I took from DRC to many people in the school where I am working and they were they were healed of their ailments. In 2007 my mother-in-law and I attended a retreat at DRC to pray for my co-brother, my sister-in-law’s husband, who was seriously ill and was paralysed - not able to move. While we were praying for him during the inner healing service on Thursday he got up from his bed and walked. After this experience my mother in law who was a Protestant by birth was totally relieved of her fear. She gave up her medicines which she was taking for twenty one years and still was normal till she passed away. “The faithful will abound with blessings” (Pro 28:20). I praise and thank Jesus Christ our Saviour for all the wonders He has done in our lives.
