Prayer of the Month


Non-Christian Reforms Alcoholics Through Word Of God - D. Ravi, Bangalore

I am a non-Christian and have been visiting Divine for the last three years. For the last ten years I have been helping alcoholics to give up their drinking habits by prescribing medicines. Last year while I was attending the retreat at Divine, on 15.September 2005, I heard the Lord telling me to give the Word of God to every person coming to me for medicines.

Since then I have been doing this without fail. I tell them to promise Jesus every morning when they wake up that they would not drink on that day and surrender the day to Him. I tell them to live one day at a time and Jesus will set them free from this bondage. I also teach them to recite this prayer every night, which was an inspiration from the Holy Spirit. Many have been set free from the bondage of alcohol through the Word of God.

Lord Jesus I praise you.
Lord today you blessed me with the grace not to drink alcohol. Lord I thank you that today you have kept me away from this bad habit. You helped me to keep up my word.
Lord I praise and thank you everyday and every night.
O loving and compassionate God keep me safe this night.
Good Night Jesus.
