December 14, 2022 - David gave an update on Will's healing.  Today, he's sitting up in a neuro chair where they help him start recovery.  They measure your recovery in terms of one to eight scale.  He's at a three which means he can respond to basic instruction and simple commands now and he's now in therapy and regaining his skills and functions slowly but surely.  Please keep praying.  God has worked a miracle.  Will was alone for a long time before they found him with his brain stroke and unconscious out in the field.  This is a total miracle.  David is grateful for all of us praying for Will and for what God has done.  This is the best Christmas gift that that family could even imagine.

December 7, 2022 - Joan:  It was a treat from the Lord last Sunday.  Usually Joe and I go the nine o'clock Mass but  we had company and so we went to the 11 o'clock Mass.  At the end of Mass, somebody stopped and talked to both of us, but out of the corner of my eye, I saw this couple with two children.  They were about 3 or 4 rows behind us.  I looked at the little baby that the man was holding and I thought, "What a cute baby."  As we were leaving the church, Joe was ahead of me, for some reason I stopped where this couple was sitting.  I don't usually do that.  I might nod and say, "Hello," but I don't usually stop and talk.  I said to the man holding the baby, "That's a really cute baby.  How old is he?"  "He's eight months."  And the mother looked at me and said, "Weren't you on a prayer team at Holy Rosary?  I remember you from that church.  Isn't your husband East Indian?  Do you remember praying with me?"  And I didn't.  I didn't recognize her and I didn't remember.  And so, she went on.  She said, "Well, you both prayed that we would be able to conceive because we had been trying and trying and nothing, and here's the result, this baby.  We went to the back of the church and shared it with Joe and he did remember them.  I thought, "Thank you, Lord."  What a blessing that was and it's sometimes good to hear that there are results from our prayers!  So I wanted to share that to encourage everybody else.  The Lord gave us a treat that day!

December 7, 2022 - David:  A young man, Will, who was in ATV accident and was not discovered for some time.  He was unconscious when they found him and he was in a coma.  Then through a MRI, they found he had a brain stroke and he's been in a coma since.  Today the doctors were working with him and they said, "Can you open your eyes?"  They could tell that he was trying to open his eyes  but they didn't open.  Then they said, "Can you give me a thumbs up?"  And he instantly went thumbs up.  They went, "Oh my gosh, this is like an amazing sign for this young man.  This has been a week and half now."  His wife was not at the hospital when that happened and when she got to the hospital, they told her what happened, including not opening the eyes; and she felt God, on the way to the hospital, was saying, "Will has something for you when you get there."  So, she went in and asked him to open his eyes and he was able to open one eye and he just stared at her and it was a moment of God's love coming through.  David thanked us for our prayers and asked for continued prayers.  God is working a miracle.

There were many suggestions on YouTube to fix this problem, which were done, but still the printer did not work.  The manufacturer said that the only solution was to buy a new printer.  Looking around for other printers, it was clear that this was a very good printer and on top of that, there was over a $100 worth of unused ink which could not be used on any other printer.  Richard and Natalie prayed again for a solution.  Before taking it to the recycle place, Richard looked again online for a solution and we think it was not by chance but by the Lord's leading that he found a different solution in a different place, which we tried.  And the printer works!!!  Thank you, Lord.

August 3, 2022 - Georgina - As I was planning my annual trip to The Pas to visit family and friends, I got some unpleasant news.  My car needed repairs.  The work order showed an amount I needed for the trip.  God provided.  A friend, a car mechanic in The Pas offered to do the repair for less.  Another friend offered me to stay with her for a couple of nights (saving me cabin rental money).  Plus parking passes were free that week.  I am grateful to God for doing all this.  We were able to have the family time we so wished for. 

August 3, 2022 - Lori Ann - Friday, Rene fell on the steps and his hand which doesn't work so well was totally swollen.  She couldn't see the doctor until Tuesday because of the long weekend.  They advised us to go to emergency for all the tests.  Yesterday, they were there for 91/2 hours.  They got there before noon. Lori Ann said that they were blessed in that Rene did not have any pain because that arm doesn't have much feeling, and all the tests came out positive.  He did not have any damage from the fall.  Also, they were treated so well by the staff.  But at 8:30, Lori Ann got an alarm on her phone to take cover, tornado warning in her area.  So she decided she needed help and phoned for prayer.  Before the prayer ended, they came into the room to take Rene for his last test, the CT scan.  Thank you, Lord!

So, David thanked God that during a worldwide outage, we still had it working.

Sept 22, 2021 - Donna - During the prayer last week, there was mention of soul healing, not just physical healing.  Three nights ago, Donna woke up in the middle of the night and she began to see really wonderful, positive things in her heritage, in her family line that she had never thought of before.  She was absolutely astonished that it had escaped her.  So, she spent the time thanking God for her heritage as he was revealing to her what was in her family line that was Godly, that was courageous and good.  She made the connection to the prayer that was prayed for soul healing because she believes that something happened in her soul life that night when she was awakened in the middle of the night.

Oct 30/19 Praise Report – Lori Ann shared she usually says the Rosary when she leaves St. Francois Xavier. Yesterday, it was quite slippery and snowy. She was saying the Rosary and when she got to Headingly, she started to brake for the light and the car started to fishtail and spin around and she went right into the ditch backwards. She stepped out of the car into water. As she crossed the road to go to Husky’s, she fell. It was so slippery that she could not get any traction with her shoes. This car stopped with these two guys and they kept saying, “Get up, get up, there’s cars coming.” She couldn’t get up and all these cars were stopping and finally, she was able to get up and they took her to the gas station so that she would not have to cross the road any more.

July 17/19 – Donna had an issue in her life that she was praying about and asking the Lord what he wanted her to do.  She got this one possible solution.  She kept praying about it.  Three or four days later, she got another solution that was the exact opposite of the first one.  She thought she should talk to her parish priest, Fr. Chris, see what he would say about it.  She was at Mass one day during the week and after Mass they pray the Chaplet of Mercy.  So, while they were praying the Chaplet of Mercy, Donna was saying in her head, “Lord, if you want me to talk to Fr. Chris today, can you arrange it that I can do that.”  So, we finished the Chaplet of Mercy and Fr. Chris comes and sits right next to me and says, “So, Donna, how are you?  While we were praying the Chaplet of Mercy, the Holy Spirit told me to come and talk to you.”  She told him what she had prayed.  Fr. Chris said that when the Holy Spirit puts something upon your heart, you need to listen.  Because when the thought came to him to go talk to Donna after Mass, he wondered, “Why, is there something wrong?”  But he thought, “No, the Holy Spirit is asking me.  I am going to go and do it.”  So if we think the Lord doesn’t hear our prayers, he really does.

July 17/19 – Michael had asked for prayer for his son about three weeks ago.  Also, he opened on a page on “healing”, healing the wounded,  in the book, Deliverance Prayers for the Laity.  He thought this was excellent for his son.  His son started to pray the prayer from that book.  A job had been lost but he just got peace and he got optimism and now, he’s getting prospects.  The Lord is alive and well in acting.

July 17/19 – Lori Ann’s mother has dementia and was living in assisted living where she had to get up, dress herself, etc.  Her knees hurt so much that she wasn’t able to do that.  So every time she could not get up, they would send her to emergency.  Emergency would send her back. The next morning, when she couldn’t get up, she would be sent back to the hospital.  Finally,  she was kept in Seven Oaks Hospital.  They prayed and prayed that they would find a very good nursing home for her.  That nursing home has been found!  She’s in a beautiful home right now.

July 17/19 – Maria is taking a holiday trip to Italy.  She booked one hotel for a few nights.  It was meant to be in mid August.  However, Maria didn’t catch it when the person on the phone said July.  When Maria discovered this mistake, she immediately asked them to change it to August.  However, they were not going to waive the charges.  She went for prayer and the group agreed in prayer that the hotel would drop the charges.  While still at the meeting, Maria got the news that they have dropped the charges.  In addition, they owe her $10.00 and some cents because it’s in August and not July.  Praise God!

June 12/19 – Maria M. took care of her parents for the last 3 years.  The last year has been difficult.  About three weeks ago she came for prayer for her parents.  The next day, she received a call from the social worker saying that they have both been accepted to a personal care home.  She said to Maria, “You must have been praying really hard.  We’ve never ever done this, that your parents are accepted at the same time and they are going to be right next to each other.”……which they’ve never done that either.  Praise God!

Praise Report June 12/19:  Monika had severe shoulder pain.  It got so bad that she could not lay on her side.  She could not raise her arm at praise and worship because of the pain.  At the praise and worship pre- Pentecost evening, her heart filled so much with joy as she was singing.  During the praise, she felt as if someone was pulling up her arms and she couldn’t stop singing.  She had no pain all night long.  She slept on her side again.  She had the best rest in a long time.  She still has a little bit of pain but hearing tonight the message on forgiveness brought something to her mind.  There is something she has to deal with and she will praise and thank the Lord.

At December 5 prayer meeting, Richard thanked God publicly for results of a test.  A few years back, he had two lymph nodes removed and he was given a not too good diagnosis and then  a couple of years ago, they said there’s one that we have to watch.  Then a year ago, they said we better watch it every three months because it’s growing.  He had an ultrasound in the last week.  They said, “I don’t know what’s happened.  It totally disappeared.”

Dec 5 – “One of my favorite sayings in the bible is Matthew 7, vs 7 – Ask and ye shall receive.  I’m sure when I meet Jesus, he’ll say, “Boy, Donna, you took me up on that.”  I retired at the end of August.  In September, I started praying, “Lord, I’d like to plan a vacation for next year.  What should I do?  And could you give me someone to travel with?”  …… The answer to her prayer is that she was given the information that a Nathaniel group from the St. Boniface diocese going to the Holy Land in April and they had a couple of extra spots.  She is going with 43 people and the person she is sharing a room with is someone who is also involved in the Charismatic Renewal.

Dec 5 – A lady left her purse in a shopping cart outside of Walmart, drove to Bulk Barn and realized she didn’t have her purse.  She usually asks for St. Anthony’s intercession, but this time she went to the top.  She said, “Lord Jesus, this was so stupid of me.  Please help me find my purse.  But if I don’t find it, at least make me learn the lesson you want me to learn from this.”  She went back to Walmart, went to the desk and asked if a brown purse had been turned in.  “No,” and then the fellow called somebody else, and then the phone rang and he was distracted.  Then a young boy walked in carrying her purse.

At July 11th prayer meeting, There was a prophetic word “John 10:10:  I came that they might have life and have it to the full,” and there was a word of knowledge that someone is looking for a job.  The Lord will answer as that person wants.  That Wednesday morning, Arya had gone for an interview for a job.  She felt this word was for her and she praised God.  She, also, prayed the Word of God in Romans 9:16, “It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.”  In addition, her prayer request in the basket that evening was that she get the job if it be God’s will.  The interview panel told her that they would inform her in a week.  A week went by, without hearing anything so she went for personal prayer at the end of the meeting.  And by the grace of God, today, (Wednesday, July 25) she got the phone call offering the job position she was looking for.

The market for selling homes in Calgary is flooded.  However, with prayer, Anne’s home was sold.  Thank you Lord.

After viewing 4 sessions on “How to Pray for People”, we had a practice session with two people praying for Margaret who had a back pain on and off since being in a car accident many years ago. During prayer she experienced heat and her pain was gone.  We saw her the next morning and asked about her back pain and she said it was gone and she felt terrific.  Thank you Lord.

Jonathon has a job.  Thank you Lord.
