Prayer of the Month


Surrender to God Heals Woman - Elvira Clemente, Goa

A few years back, I met with a serious bus accident, as a result of which I lost complete sight in my right eye. Gradually, the sight in my other eye also diminished. I could not hear well with my right ear. My hand was fractured and a steel plate was inserted. There were many injuries all over my body. I was fed up of my life.

In this desperate state of life, I attended the retreat at the Divine Retreat Centre in the first week of July 1995. There I received a message that "God touches a family, the wife of which has become physically handicapped following a major accident." From this time, I began to listen to the Word of God in a deeper way and thus I came to know that God has a plan for me.

I changed my life, learned to forgive and pray for others. I began praying with groups of people and shared my joy with them. Surrendering my life totally into the hands of the Lord, I prayed that His Will may be done in my life.

In December 1998, I attended the retreat for the fourth time along with my husband. My eyesight was restored and I could also hear clearly with my right ear. The pain in my body disappeared totally. I praise the Lord for His healing touch.
