Prayer of the Month


Friend’s Thyroid Healed - Carlo, New Zealand

Dear Fr Augustine,

I have said in the past months before you and the wonderful team came to NZ that if one person is healed then all the trouble taken by us all (The Potta Team included) is not in vain and today I witnessed God's Healing in the lives of those around us.

Shirley is a work colleague who is always ill, on the third day of the convention when during the benediction you called out her name I claimed her healing for her, standing in the gap so to speak, so that she may be healed. The next day at work I told Shirley this and she was quite moved. She is a Chinese from Malaysia and is not a Christian though she has heard lots about Christ all her life.

I then urged her to come for the Prayer and worship at Three Kings but she could not attend. Today one day after you and the team have left NZ she came to the lunchroom eyes shining and told me that the healing has been successful. Praise God!

These are her words... (Though I call myself Carlo, she knows me as Mathew, my baptised name)

" My name is Shirley and I work with Mathew as his colleague. Mat has been telling me about your anointing and healing powers and visit to NZ. Mat informed me that on the day of your healing session, you called my name and Mat received the healing on my behalf. I am suffering from overactive thyroid since Nov 03 and had been on medications and three weekly blood tests to monitor my condition. Yesterday, I went to my thyroid specialist for a routine check it showed that my thyroid level has returned to normal. It has been very good news to me as my thyroid level has been above the normal since Nov 03 even though I have been on medication. On top of this good news, I have also gained 3.5 kg in weight that was a difficult since childhood. This increase in weight has been the highest that I can remember. I have been underweight all my life and gaining weight is just like striking a lottery! "

Praise God!

A special Thank you dear Fr Augustine and a special thank you to the Holy Spirit!

God Bless, Carlo
