Prayer of the Month


"Lord Jesus has seen your tears..." - Maria Fatima AJ Fernandes, Goa

I am a housewife and living with my only son. My first retreat at Divine Retreat Centre was in 2004. This is my fifth visit. After my fourth retreat, many good things happened in my life. In October 2010, I had pain in my stomach. The doctor advised a scan and found a cyst (tumour), then advised surgery. I called Divine Prayer Tower and requested prayers, also sent emails to Fr. Augustine and Fr. Michael asking for prayers. The operation was successful and three months later I came to DRC to give testimony. At present I am on treatment after my operation. During the physical healing service, Fr. Augustine called out my name and said, "Lord Jesus has seen your tears. Lord Jesus is healing you". I am happy.

In April 2010, my brother and I went shopping in the UK. After shopping I noticed that my bag was missing and I had all my important documents in it. I was not at all upset and prayed with faith. While I was in the bus, I received a call from my brother saying that my bag was found by someone and they had given their number to call them. I called and went to get my bag. My faith did not let me down. I praise you Lord Jesus for hearing my prayers.
