Re: “Prayer is answer to the evil one – preacher” (WCR, Oct. 1).

I would like to shine some light on what happened that weekend. I was blessed to attend the Spiritual Warfare conference held at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Spruce Grove.

First, I think it’s important to know who Robert Canton is. He is a lay minster that the Lord has called to serve him. He is currently one of 14 people elected to the Vatican-based International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services (ICCRS) and he represents all of North America, South America and the Caribbean countries.

My desire to attend this conference was to further expand my knowledge of the tactics of the enemy, tactics so incredibly subtle that he has convinced so much of the world that he doesn’t exist and that miracles and healing only happened at the time of Jesus.

Bob showed us how we become bound by lies, deceit and sinful behaviour which further increases the bondage that renders a soul life-less. But the beauty of our calling is that we are to be free to love and serve the Lord and we must fight to regain and retain our freedom.

I disagree that “minor healings” occurred. For those of us (and there were many) who received healing from our Lord that night would say that they were anything but minor.

I received the greatest healing I could have ever asked for. I have suffered for over 25 years from allergy-induced asthma. I received complete healing of my lungs on Saturday and now can enjoy a life that I could only have dreamed of.

That is a miracle and for every miracle that God chooses to grace his children with, he deserves the greatest glory, honour and praise for his goodness. We must never forget from whom our life and blessings come.
