The Little House Of Prayer
More About Us
We Are On A Mission
& Bernadette Cyr
|Following my personal healing,
people would gather at my home on Saturday nights. We would sing songs of praise and
worship to The Lord, pray The Rosary and share how The Lord has worked in our lives.
People would ask to be prayed over. With time, more and more people came to this special
prayer time. This time gradually turned into The Healing Ministry that we are now involved
in. I have seen many marvelous deeds that The Lord has done. But most of all, I want to
impress on you that it is the Lord Jesus that heals, not anyone else.
July of 1983 saw the building of "The Little House Of Prayer", a name I had received in prayer. It was built during the first 2 weekends of July with the contribution of a single benefactor and a small crew of dedicated volunteer workers. On July 16, 1983, The Feast Day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Little House of Prayer was dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The building of the Little House of Prayer provided a place where a small number of people could gather for the daily rosary, monthly healing services, retreats and of course our annual campfire weekend (held the third weekend of July since 1978). Today, and each day, at the Little House Of Prayer, we recite the 15 mysteries of the Holy Rosary for all petitions that are sent to us and for world peace. The Joyful Mysteries are recited at 10:00 AM, The Luminous Mysteries at 2:00 PM, The Sorrowful Mysteries at 6:00 PM. The Glorious Mysteries are said privately as our bedtime prayers. On the first Sunday of each month at 12:30 PM we conduct a Healing Service at the Little House Of Prayer. This service begins with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for one hour followed by songs of glory and praise provided by "The Good Friends of Music Ministry". The Holy Rosary (Luminous Mysteries) are recited at 2:00 PM. After the Holy Rosary, a teaching is given by myself and then there is the laying on of hands for the healing of mind, body and soul.
This is our Apostolate with "The Little House Of Prayer" and it has encouraged many people, families and little groups to say The Holy Rosary. From there, my husband, Charles and I have traveled out to different parts of the country, as well as parts of Canada and Mexico to conduct Healing Services and Retreats. We work together in this Healing Ministry because in marriage we are one in the Lord. We have been blessed.
We also started an adult prayer group known as "The Apostolate Of The Two Hearts (Jesus and Mary)". I do not do miracles, but My Brother, Jesus, does. God had done incredible things. I have seen the lame walk, the blind see and the deaf hear and many other things also. We can go to Heaven in a wheelchair, but when our hearts are not right, how can we? When you see a heart that has been changed, that is a transfiguration, a miracle. I must tell you again and again that the Holy Spirit is working with His people. If we are open to God, He is going to lead us into a whole new dimension of our spiritual life that we were not even aware of.
If you are ever in Biddeford, Maine we invite you to stop in at The Little House Of Prayer and join us in the recitation of the Holy Rosary. Or, check out our travel schedule located in the Events Calendar - perhaps we will be visiting your home town soon.
May the Blessing of The Lord be upon you and yours.
We Bless you in The Name of The Lord.

A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands now rest.
God broke our hearts
to prove to us
He only takes the best.
God saw you
were getting tired and
a cure was not to be
so He put His arms
around you and whispered
"Come to Me".
Bernadette asked me to speak a word about Charlie, as a longtime friend. To be concise and short, I speak this way of him:
Charlie was a man of prayer; a man of suffering; a man of faith, hope and love; a man of ready smile; a man of praise through music; a religious and spiritual man; a frequent communicant; a man of generous heart; a man of ministry with Bernadette; a man with a missionary heart; a family man; a fauthful and loving husband; a loving father, grandfather and great grandfather; an uncomplaining man in suffering; a man of many skills and practical wisdom; a man of sound spiritual judgement; a man ever open to the leadings of the Holy Spirit; a man, pure of heart ever striving to do the WIll of God; the Guardian of The Little House Of Prayer; a man who unabashedly loves God, family and neighbor. In short, a good and faithful servant of God.
If someone is able to observe these characteristics from the outside, how much more does God, who can read hearts, know about Charlie? For our part, we believe and hope that God, in His infinite Mercy has invited Charlie into His Kingdom.
This day, we celebrate the feast of St. Joseph, the guardian of the Holy Family, the patron of fathers, workers and men of good will. It doesn't seem far-fetched to hope that Charlie was greeted by the Holy Family and guided to the Judgement Seat.

Cyr Family Memories
following memories of Charles Cyr, Sr. were shared at Charlie's funeral Mass by his family
Above are some of the many
memories of Charlie's family members. I am sure that we all have our own memories
and that we will cherish them forever. We shall all miss Charlie, each in our own
way - but I know that we will all be together again some day soon. And when our
lease on life is up here on earth, Charlie will be in heaven waiting for each of us.
He will be with the Lord to greet us at the door and welcome us home.
