Prayer of the Month


Faith in God Heals Fathe - Michael Machado, Mumbai

I am writing this testimony on behalf of my father. My father wanted to visit Divine Retreat Centre on the 25th of June for a retreat. All of a sudden he fell seriously ill. He had very high fever. Our family doctor gave him some medicine and injection. The medicines had a very bad reaction on his whole body. The doctor said that his condition was out of control. He was shifted to ICU. I remember it was the first Friday of July. The previous night we got the news that he might not survive. I spent the whole day in prayer. I was crying, I did not know what to do.

The following day that is on the 1st Friday I made a phone call to the Divine Retreat Center and asked Fr.Augustine to pray for my father and for his complete healing. I had felt that everything was over but my faith in Jesus increased and was very deep. I was continuously hearing one sentence 'If you have faith in Him, nothing is impossible'. Whenever I used to go to the hospital to visit my father I would see others coming out ICU and could only imagine the day my father would be discharged out of ICU.

Jesus blessed my father and miraculously he was healed and discharged from the hospital. I thank Jesus the greatest Physician and the Divine Retreat Centre for interceding for this favour. Thank you Jesus, Praise you Jesus, Alleluia! "
