A Book of Truth/JtM Crusade Prayer Group miracle
“I was working as a volunteer at OLOC Nursing Home, taking the people to Mass and bringing them back after Mass. After working there for over 30 years, a friend of mine – Keith E. – became a resident. He had earlier loaned me the Book of Truth by Maria of the Divine Mercy. After an operation in 2015, Keith passed away. My wife and I attended his funeral.
Keith was the one who first introduced me to The Book of Truth in about 2013, by giving me a copy that had been given to him by a close friend from church. I recognized it straight away as being the Truth. My wife and I were so convinced that she copied out the prayers by hand so that we could say them. We had no computer. We eventually found a Crusade Prayer Group through someone who approached us at a local parish, which our daughter attended.”
David’s wife continues:
“Keith was a devout Catholic who sincerely loved Our Lord. He led a good life and went to Confession daily after he had a vision of his life. One day, about 2 years after he died, I had a dream of him.”
“Keith was praying over me very intensely – over my head. I didn’t hear what he prayed, but at the conclusion he said: ‘David you have a new heart’. (It’s funny he addressed my husband through me, his wife. In the Bible it tells us that the two shall become one.) At the exact moment that he said that, before I could even process it, my husband, David burst through the door. Immediately, I told David that I’d just had a dream about Keith and that Keith said ‘David, you have a new heart’.”
David’s medical history.
David’s doctor said that David had a diseased heart. He had had a stent inserted previously, but he started having problems. His wife explains: “The doctors had wanted, for quite some months, to install a pacemaker because David’s heart was part slow and part fast, and he had been getting very weak and very slow.” He ended up in hospital twice to try and find out the cause of his irregular heartbeat. On one of these occasions, the doctor sent him to hospital in an ambulance.
Finally, as a form of intervention, the doctor took his car keys away. His doctor was convinced that he needed a pacemaker for his heart. He was sent to the hospital a third time – for tests. The conclusion was that perhaps the existing stent was the problem.
The medical check up after the dream:
After this, his personal doctor, once again examined him. She asked him if he was taking his tablets. He answered “no” because he said that he felt fine now! She accused him of being disobedient! What the doctor didn’t know, of course, was that in the meantime heaven had intervened for him. She examined him and had another doctor, who was there, examine him as well. This time, both doctors said that there was nothing wrong with his heart. His doctor said: “It’s a miracle”.
David’s wife concludes: “In walking now, he’s back to normal and I find it hard to catch up to him.”
The Book of Truth Connection – Co-incidence or God-incidence?
Donna and I are the mother/daughter team that runs this site. The amazing thing is that Donna had known Keith, and I had known David and his wife, independent of each other, and from our respective Church communities, many years previously.
Donna was the young woman and friend of Keith who originally gave him the Book of Truth. Donna and Keith used to have coffee after Mass and talk about everything going on in the Church. Even now, one of her children often plays with one of Keith’s grandchildren.
After Keith became ill and entered the Nursing home, he gave the book to David, who was a volunteer helper there. It was that same Book, given to Keith by Donna, which introduced David and his wife to the Mission of Salvation. Donna was completely unaware of what had happened to the Book. She thought Keith had lost it or it had been thrown out after his death.
I met David and his wife at one of our regional JtM meetings last year in October, 2017. I was surprised and happy to see him again after many years, so I went up to say hello and invited him to our prayer group.
He was already attending one, but this was on a different day and time. He does amazing work evangelizing and distributing the literature that we print, (See Menu item for “Tools of Evangelization” on this website). David says that it was about this time (i.e. October, 2017) that the miracle had occurred.
Another amazing fact is that the Book of Truth given to Keith by Donna, and then handed on to David – was purchased by me for our prayer group members. (Postage was cheaper that way… after all, we live far away: “Down Under”).
Keith – a common friend to Donna and to David;
and David and his wife – a common friend to Keith and Donna’s mum, –
had interceded with prayer to save David’s life.
How amazing is the Communion of Saints! Donna still visits and prays at Keith’s grave which is in a small country village, near her, to this day.
Thank you, Jesus for Your Love and care for us. You promised that you are present at every JtM Prayer group. We thank You for all the signs and wonders that you give to us, and all the members of our prayer group that you send to us. Please help us to always do your Holy Will. Amen.
