Prayer of the Month


I quit drinking and smoking instantly - Edgar Pinto, Goa

I am a Catholic born in Karnataka and at present settled in Goa. I was a social drinker and smoker. In the year 2000, I had frozen shoulder and I suffered from it for six months. In the same year I attended my first retreat at Divine Retreat Centre. I did not pray for my healing but lifted others, especially my family and friends, through prayer. After my confession, on the fourth day, I resolved to meet my God in a special way. Then I heard the Lord Jesus speaking to me through the Word of God: “I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Mt 28:20) I was blessed and filled with His grace. I was healed of my shoulder pain. When I left DRC, I quit drinking and smoking instantly. I started reading the Word of God. I also read the Divine Voice magazine regularly; the articles are very inspiring. I attended my second retreat in 2003 and this is my third retreat. My tailbone was hurting for months. I met with the doctors, but they could not do anything for the pain. During the physical healing service when a message was announced that a person was healed of lower back pain, I was relieved of the pain. Praise the Lord.
