Is it true that wishes can come true by completing the Simbang Gabi?
I was attending Simbang Gabi (Mass at Dawn) or 9 days novena mass even before I got married. I usually can’t complete it back then since the church in our area is quite far. What I am looking forward for every simbang gabi at that time was the homily of the priest. He is very cool and funny which helped us not to get asleep while listening to what he has to say. Of course, I also want to have some sacrifice as a gift to baby Jesus for his coming on the 25th of December.
I have already attended a lot of Simbang Gabi when someone told me that if you will be able to complete attending all the 9 days of mass your wish may come true if it’s God’s will.
I told this to my husband when we reached our 2 year of marriage and yet we still didn’t have a child of our own. Our family and friends always teased us of being slow, and that they already want to see a little Noel or a tiny Levy already. We had some health issues at that time and that is why I am really not expecting to have a child. We even planned to adopt a baby if we really can’t have a child on our own. But we decided to complete the Simbang Gabi, and to pray hard to have a child already.
After completing the Simbang Gabi, I was surprised that God granted our wish so fast. When January came, my monthly period was delayed and when I checked if I am pregnant using a pregnancy kit, I was teary eyed when I saw two distinct red lines appeared. It’s a POSITIVE!
Me and my husband was both born on the month of January so we are really grateful to have a very priceless gift from God. That is why I believe in the power of Simbang Gabi if you are really sincere in your prayers, and we are planning to complete it again this year 2010.
How about you dear readers, have you tried completing the Simbang Gabi? Did your wishes came true?
|I kept all the Misalets last year 2007 as proof that I completed it and to remind us that in doing so our wish have been granted.
what ever happens in life we should always remember to live life to the fullest
