Prayer of the Month


Jesus helped me get back my flat - Manuela Noronha, Goa

I am a widow and I have five children - all married. I have lived in London for the last twenty years and every time I come to Goa I love to come to DRC and attend a retreat to renew my spirit. First time I came in 1998 and this is my fifth retreat. Before I went to London I rented my flat to a bank and could not get it back for twenty seven years. When I came here for the first time I prayed for my family, friends and for all who were present in the retreat hall – for their ailments. I did not pray for myself or for my flat. After making my confession, I felt very light in my heart like a feather flying in the air. When I went back from the retreat, the bank promised to give back my flat and they did so. I believe that it was the Lord Jesus who helped me to get back my flat. Since then my faith in Jesus increased more and I tell people about it so that they may also believe in Jesus. I had been suffering from arthritis for a long time in my knees, left shoulder and lower back. This morning, during the physical healing I surrendered to the Lord and prayed for a healing. I forgave all those who caused me pain. After the healing service I had no pain at all. For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth” (Ps 71:5). Praise the Lord.
