Prayer of the Month


Our Experience Of God's Love - Subi Abraham, Auckland

By the grace of God our family and friends were blessed by the Lord and I myself started to see life in a different perspective; leading us to a prayer filled, simple life. The following are the miracles, which God did for us.

1. My friend Steven from Baptist denomination had come to drop his father for one of the evening retreats while Fr.Augustine was in Auckland. After listening to the talk for 15 minutes he turned to leave, at that time he fell unconscious and was carried by people outside the church and given water. When he gained consciousness after few minutes he was told by all of us not to drive the car and was forced to sit and listen to the talk. During the healing session Father announced that a person with neck pain in one side is being healed. Steven was suffering a severe neck pain for the last couple of weeks making it difficult for him to move his head. The next day he realized that he could move his head easily and felt that he was the one forced to stay in the church by Jesus to get healed and he sent an email to all his friends and to us about the joy he felt for the strange way, this miracle happened to him.

2. I was having severe pain on the left side of my back for the last 3-4 years and found it difficult to do house hold work as each year passed. In May, Fr.Mathew Naickomparambil visited Auckland for 2 days at Christ the King Church. As I got out of the car I felt severe back pain and cried to God to heal me. During the Malayalam retreat father announced that a person with pain on one side of the back is being healed. I felt hot air passing through my body. The next day Father announced that 20 people are healed of back pain. I claimed the healing. I do lots of work but I don't feel the nagging pain anymore. After the retreat I am also experiencing lot of peace of mind which I did not feel before.

3. My husband was promised a promotion and salary hike for the last one-year but nothing happened. This made him feel depressed and used by his organisation. After the retreat in May by Fr.Naickomparambil, my husband got his promotion with good salary hike. By these miraculous experiences we draw closer to God and through our lives we give witness to His marvelous presence among us. "The One Who Brought These Calamities Upon You Will Rescue You And Bring You Everlasting Joy." (Bar.4: 29)
