“And who could ever have known Your will, had You not given wisdom and sent Your Holy Spirit from above? And thus the ways of them which lived on the earth were reformed, and men were taught what pleases You, and were saved by wisdom.”
(Wisdom* 9:17-18)
“And that the faces of them which have used abstinence will shine more the stars, whereas our faces will be blacker than darkness.”
(4 Esdras* 7:125)


My aunt felt ill. She asked me that the Kovel Church to pray for her healing. She told that her joints ached so that she could hardly move and could not sleep. It is painfully for her to walk, sit and even lie down. In addition, the smells of food caused severe nausea, so by this time she couldn’t eat.

She received answer, “If you have the faith, then on Sunday at the same time with us, you should be fasting and praying, and calling on God for your healing. And every Sunday as always we, in our turn, will fast until 6 p.m. and pray between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. especially earnestly for all people who need God’s help (who are far away and those who are near). If you really have the faith to be healed, then you will be healed by God.” She immediately said with daring that she had the faith.

On Sunday, December 26, 2004, my aunt fasted and prayed for herself at the appointed time and she had received the evident healing from the Lord. In the evening, after the fast had ended, from the city of Novovolynsk she called me to Kovel and said, “Today God had healed me – I do not feel pain, food smells became pleasant for me, I had dinner, and now I will be able to sleep.” And indeed, she was sleeping all night.

The next morning i.e. on Monday, she was on a visit to the city of Lutsk. And on Tuesday, December 28, 2004, she came to us to the city of Kovel and she expressed her heartfelt thanks the Lord for His miraculous healing.

And so God’s Word fulfilled: “A voice of one calling in the desert: prepare the way for the LORD, make straight in the wilderness the paths for our God. Every valley will be filled, and every mountain and hill will be made low, the crooked will be made straight, and the rough ways will be made smooth. And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all flesh will see the salvation of God: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it” (Isaiah 40:3-5).

Glory to God for everything!

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.
