Hos.4:8 “It is I who answer and look after you”.

Seby Dias

I was working at a job I loved for 9 yrs. where I was Blessed with speedy promotions. Unfortunately since the co. was not doing well I had to take up another offer. Continue Reading....

Meanwhile my gratuity had accumulated to Dhs. 100,000/-. I was informed it would take a long time before it could be settled. However within 3 months I recd 25% and a little later the full payment which I was told was because the funds in my case came from Saudi office. Meanwhile my position with my new job was difficult. I returned home daily frustrated and exhausted. In Dec.2015 I resigned without another offer in hand. I placed my complete trust in the Lord and surrendered to him daily in prayer. Exactly a month later as I had the above message from the Lord in hand Hos.4:8, I recd a call from my old co.asking me if I was interested in rejoining them. In a matter of a couple of hours by 10am I had an offer letter with an excellent package. I could only thank the Lord with tears in my eyes for His loving provision. Praise the Lord!


Matthew 6:25-34 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? ……If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?…. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

– Mario Fernandes

My name is Mario Fernandes  and I work  in a hotel kitchen in Dubai as a chef since the last 12 years.  I underwent an  open heart bypass surgery in Goa.  Through prayers all went well and I  took 3 months rest to recuperate and then returned to Dubai to resume work. Continue Reading....

The doctors had informed me to do light work because of my surgery.  Upon resuming work my manager informed me that I was unfit to work and terminated my services.  This happened on a Wednesday.  I was in quite a shock by this news of termination . I didn’t know what to do.  On Thursday I happened to meet Br. Agnelo who prayed for me and told me to come for intercessory prayers on Friday evening in St Mary’s Church – English Charismatic Prayer group.

With little hope I came and sat in the corner and prayed.  After the prayers were over, Br. Agnelo requested brothers Armando and Noel to pray over me.  Br. Savio  put my prayer request in the Whats app group  to all intercessory prayer warriors on the same day.

Saturday was a holiday but I had that peace in my heart which I am certain came only through prayers by Br. Noel and Armando who prayed over me. 

Next day, Sunday early morning I went to the office and was shocked that they had given my papers to sign for my visa cancellation and my ticket to Goa was already booked. 

Somehow I had a lot of courage in my heart to face all this.  Sitting in the office I prayed the scripture which Brothers  Noel and Armando had read out to me on the day of intercession :                      

Matthew 6:25-34 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Then one of my old boss from Bahrain office happened to enter the office and he saw me and called out to me “Hey Mario how are you”.

I was so surprised to see him in Dubai.  This was only God’s plan to bring an angel like him right in front of me.  I told him my entire story and showed him the doctors report  advising that I may be given light duties temporarily. 

He checked all my reports  and called in the HR manager and instructed him to reinstate my job with light duties . He also cancelled my flight ticket and tore all the visa cancellation papers.

I immediately went to Br. Agnelo and  shared the good news. We started praising and thanking  God for his great mercy and love in my life.

Then the following Friday  I returned to the Intercessory prayer meeting and gave my testimony thanking all for praying for me and praised God for this miracle.  Praise The Lord ! 


 Jeremiah 29:11  For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Dear Brothers and sisters in Christ our Lord and Master. 

Praise the lord, Alleluia!!!

My name is John Leo Dcosta and if you would like to recognize me, I attended the Wednesday’s praise&worship conducted by St. Mary’s English Charismatic Prayer Group, Dubai and did the video recording and also collected the Love offerings.

Friends, I had everything you can expect in this world for a normal middle class family, good job, good family, three sons with a beautiful wife, all what you would expect to live a normal life, I had. Continue Reading....

I used to work for a reputed company in Dubai, as a controller and after few years in this position, I started asking Lord for more, to get a manager position, but eventually what I had was taken away; that is in 2015, I lost my job, I was jobless for 6 months and then got a job with another company, which again I lost after a year or so, and I was wondering and asking questions why is God doing this to me.

In this prayer group if there are people asking questions why this is happening to them, I would like to tell you don’t worry the Lord God has a beautiful plan for us and He wants to give us the best 

After coming for praise and worship, I learnt about the word of God and Jeremiah 29-11 says the lord has a best plan for your prosperity and success and not to harm you or destroy you.

After 2years 6 months, God gave me exactly what I asked for; I am now in Saudi working as operations manager with a reputed airlines. All praise and glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.

I would like to emphasize on two points don’t give up on pray and believe and have faith that Lord is working and has a plan.  Also please make sure to give your tithes, if you give you will receive double then what you presently making.

I would like to thank all the pray group members and intercessory team for continuously praying for me.  

 Phillipains 4:19-20 and my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.  To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

– Walter Quadros

Praise the Lord my dear Brothers & Sisters,

 I am Walter Quadros, being blessed with my wife Teena and two children – Chris and Alora.

I have been staying in dubai for the last 16years and if I can recollect, my coming to Dubai, is nothing short of a miracle. Continue Reading....

Back in Mumbai, I was working for a Public Limited company, our salaries were delayed for 2 to 3 months and thereby giving us tough times. However in October 2001, while at work, I was surprised to receive a call for a job interview from a consultant, to join a Retail Jewelry Group in Dubai. It was a sudden surprise, as I couldn’t recollect of applying for a job through this consultant. As I was delayed from leaving my work place, I had to cancel my appointments 3 times, with the MD of the Dubai Company. But I believed God had his plans set for me and somehow I managed to reach for the interview and I was selected for a 2nd interview, with the chairman. There again I was cleared and joined the company in Feb 2002. 

Praise God. Alleluia!!

I had to come to Dubai, leaving my family (my wife and my son) back home in India, who came to Dubai after a year and a half.  Even though my salary was not great, we were happy staying together.  With my determination and hard-work, I got frequent increments in my salary package. Then in 2012, I had a hemorrhage in my left eye, for which I had to undergo 2 operations in 1 month and another after a year. When I came back to Dubai and joined work, the 2nd miracle took place. I was appointed as the GM of the company for UAE and International operations. So during this testing time, God found a way to work his grace in my life. Praise God. Alleluia!!

In Oct 2016, after working for 15years and helping the company grow from 4 stores to more than 100 stores with presence in 10 countries, I had to resign from my job.  I had to resign because the owners of the company started questioning my loyalty to the company. They accused that I was hijacking their company by hiring people of my religion into the company, as they belong to a different religion. To be honest, I had helped a lot of potential candidates to join the company, irrespective of their religion and if I go by numbers, majority belongs to a different religion than that of mine, as I did not believe in differentiation. I was subjected to lot of humiliation and started entering a stage of depression. I then decided it was better for me to leave hence I resigned. It was a tough decision, as I had debts and heavy expenses here. But I took the decision of resigning trusting in God and seriously he didn’t let me down, as immediately I got a job offer with a German Company.

During this time, I had started going for prayer meetings on Wednesday in the main hall, conducted by St. Mary’s English Charismatic Group (Dubai). My wife Teena always used to point out towards the main hall, but for some reason I never used to enter. It was not that I didn’t believe in prayer group nor had something against them, but then I believe it is Gods calling that one should get and that’s how I started coming for the meetings. Eventually I started going for Friday Intercessory meetings of SMECPG. Today I am active member, attending the Wednesday prayer and Friday Intercessory meetings, without fail. Recently, by God’s grace and His will, I have been chosen to lead St. Peters Cell group.

It takes immense joy to let you know that my Son Chris is taking active part in youth & children ministry of the group & my daughter Alora, belongs to the children’s ministry and being an Altar server, serving God in the Holy Eucharist. What more could I ask for.

I believe my situations will become better; even though at this stage I am having a weak eyesight, back problem or vertigo problems or unstable job, nothing has stopped me from loving God and believing in him.  I feel and trust He is always at my side. My faith in God has multiplied and helped me to be at peace with myself.
