Origin of this Prayer Ministry
In the year 1988, after losing dear daughter Angel, the Lord gave this divine Ministry to Sister Stella Dhinakaran. What started as a mustard seed with 1 group has now grown into a large network both in India almost in all states(about 4700 groups) and abroad in 30 countries(about 370 groups ).
Purpose of this Ministry
The Esther prayer group ministry is to intercede like Queen Esther, for millions of women who live in tears due to various reasons so that their lives would prosper and deliver women who are under the bondage of sin and curse due to their ignorance.
