Prayer of the Month


Husband healed, daughter's marriage took place as scheduled - Lalitha Kumari, Bangalore

I am a retired government officer. I have two daughters, one married and the other single. This is my seventh retreat at Divine Retreat Centre and received several blessings each time I came. My husband had a massive heart attack on 30 November, 2010. As he was a diabetic, there was no sign of the heart problem. When he suddenly felt pain in his chest and was sweating, we rushed him to our family doctor who immediately did an ECG and said that he has already had a silent massive attack and arranged for him to be taken to the hospital. He was rushed to the operation theater and an angioplasty was done. He had two blockages and multiple small blockages. He was shifted to the ICU and put on a ventilator. Even after three days he was not able to breathe normally. At this stage we were told that he had a damaged valve and a replacement was necessary. Besides a bypass surgery was also advised. I started praying to the Lord and called Divine Prayer Tower for the same. On the fourth day, there was improvement and by the eighth day, he was able to breathe normally and was out of danger. Later he was discharged from hospital. My daughter’s marriage was fixed for 30 December 2010 and due to my husband’s health we were about to cancel the wedding. By the Divine Mercy of our Lord, the marriage took place as scheduled and my husband was hale and hearty. I praise and thank the Lord for His endless mercies.
