Prayer of the Month


Prayed and walked everywhere healed - Esther Lily Matilda, Tamil Nadu

I am a housewife, 62 years of age having two daughters. My husband is a retired engineer. Both my daughters are married. We have attended eleven retreats in Divine Retreat Centre. I was suffering from back pain and leg pain for a year. My lumbar vertebra was slightly dislocated. I was asked to wear a waist belt and not to walk or travel by bus long distances. I had to do some exercises. My husband had to undergo cataract operation for both of his eyes. In spite of these problems we decided to go to Holy Land in April 2012. Before that we decided to come to DRC in December 2011. We prayed earnestly to the Lord offering our problems and ourselves to Him. We believed in the Word of God “He will give His angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways, on their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone” (Ps 91:11-12) and went home with hope. In March 2012 my husband underwent cataract operation for both of his eyes successfully. In the second week of April we had gone to the Holy Land and had a great experience. I did not have any pain. I did not use the waist belt or any medication. I was able to walk a lot and travelled long distances by bus. We thank you God for all that he has done for us.
