ance of fire in an abounding manner this month. No man or woman will
be able to stop it. No devil will be able to hinder it. The only way by
which this will be possible, is for us to put on this man created in the image of
God.
Several years ago, a pastor was zealously working towards making all the
believers in his church to be saved and become servants of God. One day, the
time came for him to deliver the message. But he did not turn up. On the
contrary, a masked terrorist with a gun in his hand suddenly barged into the
church and said, “I am going to shoot down all of you! How many of you are
willing to die for Jesus? Those willing to do so, stand up!” Immediately, ten of
them amongst the 200 gathered there stood up. The rest were scared and lay
on the floor. Then the terrorist removed his mask. Only then it was revealed
that he was their pastor who had come in disguise. He became sorrowful and
said to his church congregation, “You are all liars. You sing on the stage that you
would give your life for the Lord but when troubles arise, your hypocrisy is
revealed.”

Loving Father,
I thank and praise You for Your unconditional love towards me. You really care for me and I believe that You are
a prayer answering God. I come before You with an expectant and humble heart. Your word says that You will never
leave me nor forsake me.
Jesus, I ask You to forgive all my sins and shortcomings and cleanse me with Your blood which You shed for me
on the cross. Thank You for accepting me as Your child. Even now, as I prepare for the exams, I ask You to bless all my
preparations. As Your word says, “Your beginning will seem humble, your future will be so prosperous,” I claim this
promise for my examinations.
Dear Lord, You are the source of all wisdom and knowledge. I ask You to fill me with Your wisdom and help me
to focus on my studies without getting distracted by friends or habits. As You gave ten times wisdom to Daniel in
the Bible, remember me and guide me. You said, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will
counsel you and watch over you.” I need Your guidance as I sit for the examinations.
Grant me sharp memory so that I will be able to remember whatever I study now and I will be able to recollect
when I sit for the examinations. Lord Jesus, hold my hand when I write my examinations and help me to answer every
question correctly. Help me to write the answers legibly and also within the given time. Take away all my worries, fear
and anxiety and fill my heart with Your peace. Lord, I thank You for hearing my prayer and I believe that this will be a
new beginning for victory in my life. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

“I am Deepika, a Young Partner and I come from a small village in
Sivakasi. As my family could not afford my education, I studied in a
government school till 10th std. I sought the Prayer Tower for prayers
before my 10th std board exam. The prayer intercessors prayed for me
with much burden. To my complete joy, I scored 496/500 in my 10th std.
As it was my desire to pursue medicine since childhood, my mother put me
in a private school for my 11th and 12th std. However, the school fee
was too high and beyond our capacity. But that school offered me
free education looking at my good marks in 10th std. God’s grace
made me score 1142 in 12th Std and that too was because of the
prayers at the Prayer Tower. Yet, the marks were not enough to get
a seat in a medical college. The prayer intercessors and the Dhinakarans
prayed continuously for me and miraculously a voluntary organization
came forward to help me study medicine. By God’s abounding grace, currently
I am pursuing my 4th year of Medicine in Georgia (abroad). I am grateful
for the fervent prayers offered for me by the Dhinakarans and the prayer

Everyone in this world wants to be blessed. However, the reality is everyone faces difficulties in life like
sickness and conflicts in the family. Some may have a hard time in studies or some maybe waiting for their
marriage for a long time. Everyone has problems in life but when the light of Christ, comes to us, all these
problems will vanish. We can see it in Isaiah 60:1 which says “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and
the glory of the LORD rises upon you.” When the glory of Jesus comes upon you, nothing will be able to
touch and hurt you. The Lord has promised in Isaiah 60:12, “For the nation or kingdom that will not serve
you will perish; it will be utterly ruined.” This will happen to all those who are against you and trying to
oppose you.

It continues to say in Isaiah 60:13, “The glory of Lebanon will
come to you, the juniper, the fir and the cypress together, to adorn
my sanctuary; and I will glorify the place for my feet.” This verse tells
that the Lord will build you and glorify you. In verse 17&18 the Lord says, “Instead
of bronze I will bring you gold, and silver in place of iron. Instead of wood I will bring you
bronze, and iron in place of stones. I will make peace your governor and well-being your ruler. No longer

I was having a sickness but I was not aware that I was having cancer. It so happened in the year 2012 that
I went for a check-up. At that time I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I used to have muscle pain in my
body. Because of thyroid cancer, all my organs began to dysfunction. I was having problem in standing
or speaking out loud; I did not have the strength to speak. I thought that I should give up my job. I also
could not eat anything. The doctors forbid me from going into the kitchen since they said I shouldn’t even
get the vapor of salt. I didn’t know where to go because I was having so many problems. I was detected
with cancer and also had a problem with my job. At that time I remembered Jesus Calls and wrote a letter
to Dr. Paul Dhinakaran. He wrote to me saying, “Don’t worry. You will live. After you are healed, write
back to me.” That word stayed strongly in my mind. My surgery took place after this. As soon as I was
taken for the surgery, a prayer intercessor prayed for me. I didn’t know what happened in the surgery.
After the surgery was over, I woke up and said, “Where am I?” Then I saw that I was in a dark room and a
sister was patting me saying, “Oh you’re awake. I was waiting for you. You are in recovery you know.” In
2016 I was told that I am cancer-free and got back my (permanent) job as well. I wrote back a letter to
Bro. Paul Dhinakaran saying, “Through your prayers, I got healed and got my permanent job back.” Now
there are so many reasons for which I have to thank Jesus Calls. Through this ministry, my husband came
closer to God and in all the struggles that were in every step of my life, there was not a single day that I
didn’t interact with Jesus Calls either through TV Programs, Emails, messages or WhatsApp. I continue to
interact with this ministry one way or another. This is how Jesus Calls ministry is helping me in my day to
day life. It’s been three years since my miraculous healing and I can do all types of work now. I can go to
the kitchen, cook and eat all kinds of food. There are no restrictions and limitations. I thank Jesus at this
very moment and the Jesus Calls ministry for always being there.

My name is Boopathy and my wife is Thilagam Shanthakumari and my daughter is KB Pauline Priya. I got
married in September 2008 and my wife conceived the very next month itself. We went for a medical
check-up and the growth of the baby was normal. By God’s grace my wife delivered a healthy baby at the
right time. Everything was going good. After six months, we were heading towards Avadi from Tambaram
to erect a fence around our plot. Close to 7:00 pm I was riding the motorcycle and my wife was seated
behind me carrying our six month old baby. The vehicle hit a pothole unknowingly and we fell down on
the new bypass road. Our six month old baby rolled away from my wife. My wife became unconscious as
she fell down and later we found out that she fractured her waist. I injured my legs but still I managed to
call the ambulance and we were all taken to the hospital. I didn’t know at that moment what I should do
further. My wife was taken on a stretcher as she held the baby in her arms. While she was going into the
hospital she asked, “Where am I? Who are you? What happened to me?” She woke up again from the
unconscious state and repeated the same things. I could not understand anything and I just got fed up
thinking that I’m nothing as I could do nothing. As she regained consciousness she told me she actually
thought that she would not live as she had seen the baby’s state. I was relentlessly praying that nothing
should happen to her as she got a fracture. The doctors also said there was nothing to worry about the
baby. There was just a blood clot in the head and it would soon recover. They said if the baby was a little
older, it might have suffered a graver injury. But I could not believe this for the head had got a bigger
inflammation. After the treatment got over we came back to our home. Two years later, one day we
were watching the Prarthanai Neram Raj TV Program from morning 6:00-6:30 a.m as usual. Paul Annan
was sharing the word of God. During the prayer, He called our daughter’s name saying, “Pauline, the
Lord strengthens you, and He is delivering you from the problem you have on your head and strengthens
you.” We also used to follow every prayer offered after the message. And on that day as he called our
daughter’s name we felt a shock in our bodies and joy just overflowed out of us. We took our daughter
and went down to show her to our dad, as there were no traces of swelling found on her head.It had
miraculously disappeared!

I am a Jesus Calls Evangelist. My wife, Mrs. Manola, and I work at the North-Eastern Hill University. We
are blessed with two daughters, Sharon and Nazrin. Both of them are Young Partners. Even though we
were blessed with very good jobs, we could not build our own house. For more than10 years we lived
in different rented houses and shifting the house regularly was painful and disturbing. As a family, we
attended the Shillong Prayer Festival in 2016. In that meeting Dr. Paul Dhinakaran prayed for us personally
and afterwards both of us were blessed with promotions in our jobs. In a Jesus Calls TV program I heard
Dr. Paul Dhinakaran say, “Build God’s house and God will build your house”. So I contributed to the Prayer
Tower Building Fund and sent an email to Dr. Paul Dhinakaran requesting prayer for a house. I received
a reply from him with the following Bible verse ‘God will establish your house’ - II Samuel 7:11. Soon the
Lord opened a door and we could purchase a house in the heart of Shillong which cost us Rs 80 Lakhs.
The Lord, also blessed us with two other plots of land in Shillong. Our daughters, Sharon and Nazrin
excel in studies as well as in sports. Sharon is representing the Junior Basketball team for the state of
Meghalaya. Not only that, both of them are blessed with very good voice. They travel with me to different
