Hello Friend, Let me turn your focus to a few unfailing promises of
God for you in this month:
“And He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also
bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and
your new wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the offspring
of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your fathers to give
you” (Deuteronomy 7:13)
“And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply
you exceedingly.” (Genesis 17:2)
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that
we ask or think, according to the power that works in us”
(Ephesians 3:20 )

PRAYER TO RECEIVE EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANT BLESSINGS!


Loving Lord, who hears the prayers of all flesh, I have come to your feet believing that
You will hear my prayers too. You have promised saying, “I have established My covenant
between you and Me and make you multiply abundantly.” According to your unfailing word
you will make me multiply abundantly. You will work in me more than what I can imagine or
ask for. May the blessing that would make me multiply more abundantly descend upon me.
O! God! I am going through terrible pain and hurt that are caused by problems that are
too huge for me to handle. I am going through trials and tribulations that are like a superheated
furnace. You, who overcame the devil with your word, please do arise in me and deliver me
from these unbearable tribulations ,destroy all the works of the devil against me and change
all my sorrow into joy. Send your angels before me to lead me to the high position that you
have prepared for me.
O! Lord! Who has planned to multiply my blessings abundantly, please bless me with
abundant wisdom, understanding and expand my mental capabilities like the sands of the
sea shore. Bless me with abundant prosperity and honour. Fill me with the abundant joy that
your presence brings.
Father God! It is your pleasure to bless me abundantly. May the love of God be upon me
and establish the work of my hands. Bless me and make me multiply in all my blessings the
way you blessed and multiplied Abraham. Bless me in such a way that I may increase a
thousand times more that what I am now. Bless me with your favour that I may be a great
success in the work of my hands, reap the good fruits of my sowing and be filled with joy,
favour and goodness.
www.jesuscalls.org - March 2017 JESUS CALLS 7
Father God! My wealth and prosperity is not needed for you but for the saints on this
earth and to those saintly souls who I love with my whole heart. Father strengthen me so
that I may sow into your ministry liberally and generously and with a cheerful heart and reap
a hundred fold blessings. Help me to sow and reap and to share and to multiply in every
aspect of my life. Help me to be completely blessed in all things and increase in my good
works and grace. You are the One who gives seeds to the sower and food to eat. Accordingly
grant me seeds and help me to multiply those seeds. Open the windows of heaven and bless
me with no-room-to-contain blessings. Let blessings be poured into my bosom, pressed
down, shaken together and overflowing. Let my cup run over and let mercy and goodness
follow me all the days of my life.
Lord Jesus! When your disciple Peter tried fishing all through a night but could not catch
even one, you visited him graciously and blessed him so that he caught boats full of fishes.
You made him cast the net according to your Word and haul boat loads of fish. In the same
way Lord, bless me too that I may do everything in my life according to your Word and reap
abundant blessings. Help me to wisely use the talents that you have given me and be true
and faithful in small things so that I can become master over big things.
Father! Remember my works that I have rendered to the ministry and to the saints of God
and do render, bless me more than I can imagine or pray and make me increase abundantly.
Fulfill all my needs and remove all my insufficiencies according to your riches in glory. Fill
me according to your riches; abundant wisdom; immeasurable wealth and unspeakable joy.
Father! I praise you and thank you because you are going to do all this to me. I pray in the
name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

14 JESUS CALLS March 2017 - www.jesuscalls.org
Beloved in Christ,
This is the blessing that God has kept
for the family of David and for the people of Is-
rael. We too belong to this family because we too love
the Lord. We are the children of the God. (1 John 3:1). And
so it is to us too that God is saying, “I will pour out the Spirit of
grace and supplication”
Why is the Lord pouring the Spirit of Grace and supplica-
tion? He is pouring these two blessing so that we can abide in
His presence.
What is the Spirit of grace?
Spirit that strength us
“The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
(Matthew 26:41; Mark 14:38)
We humans are made of flesh and the flesh is weak, but
the Spirit is strong and that is why God pours out the Sprit
of grace in order to strengthen our flesh. By pouring the
Spirit of grace the Holy Spirit makes us Spirit –filled;
makes us His own; makes us live with Him and in
Him (Deuteronomy 14:2)
The Holy Spirit is soft like a dove but He is also a
powerful person. He is also like a mighty flood. When
the enemy comes-in like a flood against us, the Holy
Spirit will lift up a banner for us. (Isaiah 59:9)
He will lift up a banner that would say, “I am with
My child.” He will pour the love of God upon us like a
river and will establish the truth saying, “This is my son/daugh-
ter”, and thus make the enemy flee from us. He will make our
enemies grind their teeth in shame and defeat. The scripture

The Jesus Calls Prayer Festival was held on three days - 27th, 28th and 29th (Friday,
Saturday and Sunday) of January 2017, at Thamukkam Grounds, Madurai. These meetings
held in Madurai after a span of 4 years, were of great blessing to the people in and around
Madurai. Sis. Stella Dhinakaran, Dr. Paul Dhinakaran and Sis. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran
shared God’s messages in these meetings. Though it was raining, people gathered ea-
gerly to hear the Lord’s word, without minding the rains. When Dr. Paul Dhinakaran
prayed for the rains to stop, the Lord accepted his plea, stopped the rain and made
the people heed His Words, and feel His touch. Thousands of people received bless-
ings in their personal as well as family life through these three days meetings. People,
who received anointing, miracles and blessings shared their testimony on the dais
and glorified the name of God. The Madurai Jesus Calls Prayer Festival was
graced by the August presence of Rt. Rev. M. Joseph, Bishop in CSI Madurai

On behalf of the Jesus Calls ministry, a special prayer meet was conducted for the students appearing for
their government public/annual exams. This Meet which was held on February 5th, at 2.00 PM in the Madras
Christian College Hr.Sec. School campus, Chetpet was attended by several students in groups, as friends and
as schools in Chennai as well as from suburban areas like Kanchipuram, Thiruvallur and Vellore. The Karunya
students enthralled the crowd with their inspiring skit, songs and choreography. Stella Ramola rendered a heart
melting special song. Students, who had scored high marks last year because of the prayers offered for them,
shared their testimony for the glory of God. Dr. Paul Dhinakaran shared God’s message on the success given
by the Lord. Sis. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran offered special prayers for the thousands of students gathered
there. Both Dr.Paul Dhinakaran and Sis. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran offered individual prayers for the stu-
dents, at the end of the meeting.
The meeting was begun with the prayers of Rev. Fr. M.Arulraj, Vicar General, Madras – Mylapore Arch
diocese. Mr.G.J. Manohar, Principal of the School, gave the welcome speech.
Students from different parts came for the meeting by school vans and were blessed. Everyone said that

exams boldly, with faith on the Lord.

Testimony of a Young Partner


SECOND PLACE IN STATE LEVEL
I appeared for my 10th public exams last year. My parents are doctors. Through one of my
mother’s colleagues, we came to know about the Jesus Calls ministry.
My parents joined me and my younger sister in the Young Partner’s
Plan. Until then I had very poor memory power and could not retain
what I had studied. After joining this Plan, I started studying well.
Particularly I could feel the Lord Jesus being with me. Every day I
used to contact the Jesus Calls Prayer Tower before appearing
for my exams. The Prayer Warriors too prayed earnestly for
me. Also I offered the special prayer for students compiled by
Uncle Paul Dhinakaran. Through these, I felt a divine wisdom
coming upon me and I completed my exams. When the results
were published the Lord helped me to obtain State Second
with a score of 498/500 (Centum in Maths, Science, and Social
and 99 in Tamil and English). Glory to God.

‘For He has not despised nor abhorred the
affliction of the afflicted; Nor has He hidden
His face from Him; But when He cried to Him,
He heard’ (Psalm 22:24).
This is how David had written about his experi-
ence in life and the divine comfort he received. David
was a man, who passed through the path of tribula-
tions.
Dear ones, are you too passing through the path of
affliction today? The Lord, who helped David and
comforted Him, would surely help you.
The Lord Jesus Christ, who was manifested in the
flesh, has promised,
"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you
may have peace. In the world you will have tribula-
tion; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
(John 16:33).
In Psalm 22:24, the word used is ‘affliction’
whereas in John 16:33, it is ‘Tribulation” which is stron-
ger than affliction. ‘Tribulation’ means ‘anguish’ (be-
wilderment) or despair (frustration) or sorrow (much
worry and grief) (II Corinthians 2:7). This is not an
ordinary grief but a grief that would sink us in de-
struction.

GOD’S MIRACLES THROUGH GOD’S MESSAGES
Victory given by the Promise
My son is now doing second year in college. For several months, he had been practising for weight lifting
competition. He told me that he had to attend a competition on November 17th. But he faced many obstacles.
He could not get the certificates needed for that. He was told that he could participate in the competition only
if he had those certificates. We tried for many days but in vain. So my son was totally upset and we did not
know what to do. It was painful to see him suffer.
At this state, as a family we visited the Vanagaram Prayer Tower Chennai, on November 1st. I was
wondering about that month’s promise word. That time, the special promise message for that month was being
broadcast in the Prayer Tower and I started listening to it with prayer. Sis. Stella Dhinakaran mentioned the
verse, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’ (Philippians 4:13), and said that the Lord would
strengthen us. I claimed this promise verse for my son and began to pray every day. My husband and son too
joined me in the prayer at 4.30 in the morning every day and pleaded to the Lord to help him take part in the
competition. What a wonder! Within few days after hearing the God’s message, he got the two certificates
which he needed and the obstacle was removed. After getting prayers from the Prayer Tower, he attended the
competition on November 17th and he got the first place. He got a certificate and cash prize. Glory to God.

GOD’S POWER CAME DOWN; OBSTACLE REMOVED
I was suffering from the problem of varicose vein because of which my whole body, especially legs and
hands would tremble. I was scared. I attended the Family Blessing Meeting conducted by Sis. Stella Dhinakaran,
with hope. That day she gave God’s message and prayed for the sick. That prayer was for me. I too joined
dear sister in prayer. The power of God came upon me and in a moment all my fears vanished. Also my
trembling stopped and now I am in good health. My thanks to dear sister, who prayed for me.
- Saravanakumar, Chennai -28
Obstacle gone; Marriage took place
My daughter was not married for a long time. So we were in agony. I attended the last Women’s Confer-
ence. When Sis. Stella Dhinakaran offered God’s message and prayed for those who were not married, I too
joined her in the prayer. Hearing the prayer, the Lord blessed my daughter with a suitable partner and helped
us to have the marriage in a grand manner. Glory to God. - R.Prema Ravi, Kanchipuram.

did not know what to do.
I came to know of the Prayer Tower and wrote a letter seeking prayers for me. I was com-

the ministry with what offering I could give.
After this, I who had studied up to 6th std., did my higher studies. I had

At SEESHA, we see women of indomitable spirit in the rural and urban poor communities where we work.
They may be uneducated, without a job, widowed or dealing with an alcoholic spouse – but they never stop
seeking ways to support and uplift their families. That is why we support such women through trainings,
awareness campaigns and financial assistance, building their capacities to play the roles they have so passion-
ately taken up in their homes and communities.
Though SEESHA awareness on a range of topics including health, hygiene, disease, financial management,
rights, government schemes, water conservation, waste management, etc. are made. Help to improve the
health, financial status and quality of living in their families, long-term and short-term skill training courses such
as tailoring, jute-bag making, cosmetology, etc. equip them to become breadwinners and entrepreneurs who
can financially support their families, is given. Self-help groups and women’s groups help them manage revolv-
ing funds and support the financial needs of their families. Monthly financial assistance for women who are
widowed or have been made destitute is provided. Motivated women are trained in various areas of health and
environment, and groomed into Community Health Facilitators (CHFs) who act as ambassadors to promote
health and prevent disease within their own local communities.
Last year 430 women were trained in tailoring through 13 centres. 39 sewing machines distributed to
women who completed tailoring training. 731 women received awareness and skill training in various short-
term programmes. 222 widows/destitute women were supported financially.

SEESHA’S SUPPORT :
“I am S. Sasikala from Keelkavarapettu village. My husband passed away 6 years
ago, leaving me with my two children – one son and one daughter. I am a daily-wage
labourer, working in agricultural fields. I do not get regular work, and the wages I earn
is not sufficient. As we live below poverty line, I find it difficult to fulfil the growing needs
of my children. Thanks to SEESHA, I am now being supported financially on a monthly
basis to take care of my children’s needs. Moreover, I am being trained at SEESHA
Tailoring Centre so that I can start my own business and support my family without having to depend
on anyone else. I am truly grateful for this wonderful opportunity that gives me hope for the future.”
