“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.
Pray because it is needed,
Needed to bring near your enemies end,
To end all those wrongs and hatred,
Prayer filled with Spirit and Truth is needed.
For joy and peace pray,
If you are sad and your feeling bad pray,
You are happy and your laughing praise,
Pray to God, praise the Lord everyday.
In the days your living lean on him,
At your death bed remember him,
Call unto him day and night,
For God alone can protect you and reach you out.
Only Jesus and no one else can listen to you,
Call unto Jesus, on whom even saints and angels leaned on too,
The end is near and the world will fade,
Only Jesus can save you from going to the Hades.

I am not afraid of anything,
Nor do I worry about a single thing,
I have kept my hope in suffering,
Whatever I do my aim is to meet his decrees.
Why should we be anxious when God is on our side?
Didn’t he tell each one of us that he cares for us day and night.
Trusting his promises I believe we can make through this hard time,
Believe in his gospel which is true and which will help you rise.
He is with us and also he is in us.
We are more powerful than anything in this universe.
Because we adore the God who made this world,
Because He lives in us, we will reign with him forever.
Trust in the Lord at all times you who have renewed your life in Jesus Christ,
Let not your heart be troubled because of sufferings and crisis.
Jesus Loves you and he will take care of your every single needs
You only need to be still and trust in his ways and timings.
