Prayer of the Month


Confession Brings Spiritual Healing - Margaret Chandrababu, Secunderabad

I am a teacher in a boys’ school at Secunderabad and a single parent to my 5 year old daughter. My first retreat at Divine was in the year 2003. Spiritually I was sick. I was angry with two persons who had cheated and ruined my life totally and caused in me the tendency to commit suicide. There God sent His Holy Spirit to give me His counsel and then I went to Divine to tell Jesus that he was the only one whom I trust in my life. During the retreat I made a good confession after 25 years. After confession I felt very light and could hear within me a voice saying: "I have never forsaken you". Jesus filled me with a lot of love in my heart. Back home I saw the person who had cheated my daughter and me. I never felt angry, instead this time I could pray for that person. Though I live alone with my daughter, I am more confident in life. I have no fear, or anger. I am not worried now about my daughter’s future also because, I know that our lives are in His hands. Thank you Lord for setting me free from sin and keeping me close to your heart. Alleluia! "Jesus Christ Has Made Me His Own”(Phil.3:12)
