Prayer of the Month


Aunt Healed From Final Stage Of Breast Cancer - Chandan Amonkar, Goa

I was born in an orthodox Hindu family and we have our own temple in Goa. I am an engineer by profession. I came to Divine in 1997 to pray for my aunt who was in the last stage of breast cancer. The doctors had given her only a maximum of 7 months of survival. There was absolutely no hope and that was how I had landed in Divine to pray for her. My aunt had not come.

During the inner healing session Fr.Augustine had announced, "There are three people here praying for the breast cancer of their relatives. The Lord is touching them". Father had asked us to testify but no one stood up. So Father prayed again and gave the same message. He said "Believe and testify". So I testified along with two others.

When I reached Goa I called my aunty and she said that from Thursday onwards she was feeling much better. The doctors had said that she would live only till December 1997 but my aunt is alive to date (28May 2004) - well and fit. We had attended the Couples Retreat and enjoyed God's peace and experienced His loving power within us.

We praise the name of Jesus always. I request all of you to pray for us to continue to keep our faith in Jesus till our last breath. All glory to you Jesus. Amen. "He who endures to the end will be saved."(Mt.24:13)
