Prayer of the Month


Facial paralysis caused by Bell's Palsy - Quahin Chang Sylvia, Mumbai

I am fifty nine years old, a Catholic living in Mumbai for thirty one years and running a beauty parlour. I have a son who is an MDS (orthodontist) and a daughter who is a Physiotherapist. My first retreat at the Divine Retreat Centre was in 2008 along with my sister as I was forced to accompany her. At that time I received God’s grace and mercy and I began following my faith seriously after being away and worshipping idols for sixteen years. Now I come every year to praise and glorify the Lord for He has been so kind and merciful to me and my family at all times. In January 2011 I underwent a Parotid gland surgery in my left ear. My lady doctor touched my seventh cranial nerve which led to Bells Palsy of my face and half of my face on the left side went numb along with my left ear. It was Jesus Christ my Lord and my God who healed me and saved me. I had called Divine Prayer Tower and requested prayers and I believe it is only through prayer that I was healed. My eyesight and my hearing are normal and after four months of physiotherapy, my sensation came back. I praise and thank God for His blessings.
