“Now this is the order of those who have kept the ways of the Most High, when they will be separated from their mortal body. During the time that they lived in it, they laboriously served the Most High, and withstood danger every hour so that they might keep the law of the Lawgiver perfectly. Therefore this is the teaching concerning them: First of all, they will see with great joy the glory of Him Who receives them [to Himself], for they will have rest in seven orders. The first order, because they have striven with great effort to overcome the evil thought that was formed with them, so that it might not lead them astray from life into death. The second order, because they see the perplexity in which the souls of the ungodly wander, and the punishment that awaits them. The third order, they see the witness that He Who formed them bears concerning them, that throughout their life they kept the law with which they were entrusted.”
(4 Esdras* 7:88-94)
“For I, the Lord, love justice, I hate robbery with iniquity; and I will give them their reward in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.”
(Isaiah 61:8)

The Healing of Ivan Grytsak

It was in 1969. My leg ached and a swelling arose under the knee. My temperature rose to 38°C. I went to a traumatology department. I was brought to the hospital where I had an X-ray taken. It turned out that in my leg bone there was an abscess the size of a hen’s egg. I have been diagnosed with osteomyelitis. The doctors said that a serious operation was unavoidable. It was necessary to pierce a hole in the bone and remove the pus, as, otherwise, there would be severe pain when the pus would start seeping out itself. That was on Monday. On Tuesday, during the doctor’s round, he said that I had to be operated on the same day and notified a nurse to prepare me for the operation. But I declared that I was against the operation. The doctor then said: “Discharge him from the hospital to work; it is useless talk, tomorrow he will come again, as the abscess will not leave him alone!” Even though I was sick, I worked in the mine till the end of the week and went to the town of Kovel for the service of the Kovel Church. The service was at Ivan Dunaychuk’s house. There, I told believers about my illness. Maria Gochachko said: “Let God save you from the operation so you will not become a cripple”. She offered to pray to God for my healing. And then a miracle happened – God, through a single prayer, healed my leg! About 36 years have passed since then, and I haven’t even paid attention to whether there is an abscess in my leg or not. But with daring I witness that since that time my leg has never ached. I thank and praise the Lord God for this miracle and for many other miracles which He has performed in our Kovel Church for decades.

Glory to God for everything! Amen!

For more than 50 years, the Kovel Church has been continuously fasting and praying to God for the whole world every Sunday. We continue to do this and now. We eat nothing and drink nothing until 6 p.m.. And between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.* many times we pray especially earnestly. We pray for all peoples, tribes and tongues, for their presidents, kings and rulers, so that God’s mercy will help on its own in all the deeds which are being done on the Earth.
* You can always find information about our prayer time, looking at the time on the clock that is at the top right corner of every page of our website. It is the time at which we pray to God for all those who are in need of God’s help.
