  1. It is a miracle, praise the lord, praise the lord, praise the lord. My name is Carolina Alegre from London UK. Seven year ago I was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and Idiopathic Hypoglycemia, life was frustrated with that condition. I could not do anything thing on my own, I could not move, I was just on one place. I was on medication for straight seven years but the condition was still the same. I gave up hope I was preparing myself to die until a friend of mine in USA called me and introduced me to synagogue church of all nation[scoan]. He told me that I don’t have to travel to the church to see prophet TB JOSHUA, he gave me the ministry email that I should request for anointed water which can cure the disease. I contacted them and the anointed water was sent to me through ups courier service nearest to my location. Lol and behold immediately I took the drop of anointed water I was made whole, my life was restored back and I was healed after seven years of idiopathic hypoglycemia. To crown it all a friend of mine that have suffered for hivaids for nine years was healed immediately she took the water. HALLELUYAH HALLELUYAH HALLELUYAH, my friends why not visit the email; and request for your own water and be healed and secondly the water can protect you from every evil and also make your business to increase.

  5. I think when you’re doing the podcast for novenas that you need to start the prayers with the sign of the cross … Just a suggestion for audio and video podcast.

  6. Lord, I ask through your servant Therese the following petitions:

    The spiritual rebirth of the church parish of St Therese of the Child Jesus in Abbeville, Louisiana. I ask that you touch the hearts, minds, and souls of every person young and old. I ask that you call for people to serve in the variety of needs that are needed by all. May you pour a spirit of volunteerism so that the needs of the parish are met. I ask a return of those who have left the faith and those no longer practice the faith. Raise up those with an evangelical spirit to bring the good news to all. Bless, and strengthen the staff and those who serve the community. In great need is the financial and material welfare. There has much need to repair, restore, and upgrade much. The funds needed are also to supply support to those who are in ministry. We need dedicated and anointed music. Continue to bless the adoration chapel with many adorers. Empower a youth ministry that meets the needs of our youth!
    I ask that you ask God to provide for me healing, renewal, deliverance (especially procrastination, bandages, memories, woundedness, etc), health (healing of physical, mental, and spiritual), openness to grace, openness to the ministerial gifts, and whatever in my life to be the best possible servant pastor for the community. I ask to bathe in God’s mercy. Anointed my preaching, teaching, and ability to called to holiness. Give me a desire to learn. Help me to lead others from the truth. Whatever I don’t know that I need I ask for especially those I mention in my heart.
    I ask for the needs and salvation of those I love. I ask God’s blessings for those who are good to me. I ask God to provide forgiveness to all in my life and I ask God to be able to forgive and be forgiven. If I have hurt anyone or caused anyone to sin in any way may there be healing and forgiveness.
    For those who have asked for my prayers, those that I have promised to pray for, and those who are in need of prayer who have no one to pray for them For those dying without benefit of prayer or sacrament. For the poor souls in Purgatory especially the neglected and forgotten.
    For a safe and holy trip! For God’s grace and healing to flow.
