Prayer of the Month


Healed of Uterus Bleeding - Ann Marie Lee, USA

"The Helpless Call To Him, And He Answers; He Saves Them From All Their Troubles"(Ps.34:6) I am a teacher and a social worker here in India for one year. I came for a retreat in July 2003, then volunteered in September/February 2004. I was suffering from severe bleeding for two months and was anemic. I went for confession the week before the retreat and then received a Bible passage (when I opened at random) "I will heal this city and its people and restore them to health" (Jer.33:6).

On the very first day of the retreat the bleeding stopped. A message was given that three people are cured of uterus problems and one will not have to undergo surgery. I believed that the illness was due to my disobedience to the Lord regarding the call to preach the Word. I did not want to do it. Now I have made the decision and commitment to do His will with all my strength no matter what it costs. This healing was a touch of mercy in my life. God forgave me and then even spared me the painful and scary event of having a surgery. Even though I did not deserve it God gave me this splendid gift. Thank you Jesus!
