Testimony Letter – Shalom Night Vigil – January – 2018 – Jacob Mathew

 

Arise, cry out in the night,
as the watches of the night begin;
pour out your heart like water
in the presence of the Lord. (Lamentations 2:19)

A Trinitarian night of miracles, an amazing spiritual experience.

Every First Friday, the whole of Shalom family gather together to pray for the world. On the still silence of the night, they offer before the Blessed Sacrament all the prayer intentions coming through the post, phone, e-mail, and fax. Simultaneously, special prayer service for the public is conducted within the office of Shalom.

It is a day of blessings. The Lord touches many who are lost in despair. The sick are healed! Sinners are liberated! Youth groping in darkness find a new light! Peace returns to shattered families!

Shalom Night Vigil is a spiritually nourishing programme which includes Rosary, Praise, and Worship, Sharing of the Word, Narration of Testimonies, Adoration and Holy Mass which comes on all first Fridays. Many a soul finds solace in mind and heart as well as realizes the love of our heavenly Father participating in it. The Lord has enormously blessed many people through this enriching programme and it is attested by the thousands of letters and phone calls receiving in Shalom.

You might begin that night with cries of despair, but surely you cannot help but end it with tears of joy rolling down your cheeks because your Lord will definitely visit you that night.

Watch it on Shalom TV every First Friday starting at 8.00 p.m. IST.
