Prayer of the Month


Blessed with a baby girl - Jenica Sequeira, Goa

I am working with the Pollution Control Board in Goa. My first retreat at Divine Retreat Centre was in 1995, second in July 2002 and this is my third retreat to praise and thank the Lord, listen and understand His Holy Word and renew myself. Two years after marriage I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries. I had to take medication for the same. However I was advised In-vitro fertilization which did not help me to conceive. Depressed, my husband and I attended a retreat at DRC in July 2002. After listening to the Word of God, our faith was strengthened and we believed that anything and everything is possible with God. With this faith we returned home and the very next month, the pregnancy test showed positive. On 30 April 2003, I delivered a normal and healthy baby girl who is now seven years of age. I also had pain in the sole of my right foot for more than a year. I did not take any treatment. During the adoration, the priest announced that some persons are being healed of pain in the soles of the feet. I claimed this healing for me. I checked my foot and the pain was no more. I praise and thank God for His blessings and for healing me.
