Prayer of the Month


Three couples were being blessed with children... - Elizabeth Francis Fernandes, Goa

I am a housewife and my husband is working in the UK. We got married in June 2001 and were childless for six years. Even though we consulted many specialists in the field of gynaecology, all our efforts failed. We then attended our first retreat at Divine Retreat Centre in May 2007. By listening to the Word of God and after making a good confession, we experienced God’s forgiveness. We had a good counselling session too. We surrendered our problem into the hands of our loving Saviour Jesus Christ. During the inner healing session the priest announced that three couples were being blessed with children. We claimed the message for ourselves in faith. Believing in the Word of God: “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household" (Acts 16:31) we went back home after the retreat. On 4 July 2007, I did the pregnancy test and it was positive. I had lot of problems during my nine months pregnancy, but I felt the presence of Jesus with me - He strengthened me through His precious blood to be courageous. On 20 February 2008, I delivered a healthy baby boy. We have named him Valen. Jesus worked a wonderful miracle in our life. “Nothing will be impossible with God” (Lk 1:37). Praise the Lord.
