“I forgive you…”. This is a very difficult task to do, my dear brothers and sisters, but surely not impossible. Let me share with you a wonderful experience that I had. After completing my graduation and when I was working, I had attended many prayer meetings. I belonged to a prayer group and we used to have our team prayer once a week. We were about five or six of us. One day, during our prayer, one of the team members just called me aside and told me, that I need to forgive someone. I started to recall as to who I need to forgive. The next day I took a day off from work and sat before the Blessed Sacrament. The Lord revealed to me the person and I forgave him from my heart, removing the hatred from within me and accepting him as a child of God. And that day I felt so light and I truly felt the grace of God filling me.
“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you” – John 14:15-17
About a thousand people gathered at Divine Community Centre, Kenchankere on 26th May 2012 from 8.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. to experience this “Spirit of Truth”. The Lord poured out his Spirit upon all the people, young, old, men, women and children as he promised in Joel 2:28-29.
The retreat started at 8.00 a.m. with praise and worship. All people joined in praising God and singing hymns in thanksgiving.

Oh Lord you are my master,
Unless you build me, I will not grow better,
You are my future holder,
Take my responsibilities on your shoulder.
I can't do anything without you,
Weak and feeble I am on my own.
On you do I lean forever and ever.
Never cast me down and hold me when I stumble.
You are the root of all wisdom and Master of this creation,
You know the beginning and the end,
You know us better than we know ourselves.
Jesus please have control on our lives.
He is able and for him nothing is impossible,
Let us not be rigid and depend on our failing strength,
But let's be humble and offer our life into his hands.
For Jesus is our Creator and Father of all universe.

Lord you’re the wisdom,
I seek you more than a gold or silver,
Remain in me forever,
This is my prayer O Lord Jesus.
Abba Father my God,
By your wisdom you created this world,
Remain in me O my creator,
Your value is much more than precious of precious stones.
Your knowledge surpasses everything,
Who are we before your throne of insight,
O Lord fill me with your spirit of light and knowledge,
You be my guide and every time and everywhere instruct me.
Glory be to you O Jehovah forever,
For always being gracious on us all,
Take delight in us O Heavenly Father,
That in your wisdom we may grow wilder.
