Renewal Retreat Centre, chosen by God himself to provide spiritual growth and for the purification of Bangalore city completes 23 years. Just like a lamp lit in the darkness provides light, this Centre is the way and the light for the many who are lost in the darkness. Let us give thanks and praise to the Lord for showering his blessings and mercy on this Centre and the thousands who come here to pray.
If we cry out for help in faith the Good Lord will always heed our prayers says the Lord. In 2 Chronicles 7:15 the Lord says, “now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place”. The Lord was moved by the tears and sufferings of his people (Mark 8:2) showered his blessings and mercy on the people who come to seek him and chose this Centre to establish and glorify his name every day (Deuteronomy 12:11).
This Centre serves people coming from different region and languages. “For my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples” (Isaiah 56:7) is fulfilled here as the services in this Centre are conducted in 5 languages and all come together to pray, worship and glorify the Lord. As we see in Exodus 40:34, “Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle”. The same way the Lord has lifted this Centre to glorify his name. His name is glorified thorough the many blessings, healings, miracles people receive through the different services held here.
Let us thank the Lord for his bountiful blessings showered upon us through these years and continue to receive his blessings through the Virunnu celebration.
