Vasantha was worried about the condition of her sister Karpagam's family as they were all suffering from Covid-19. She was suffering from sleeplessness as she was full of worries. She was heartbroken when he heard that their condition was serious. She saw the clock and it was 12 Midnight. When she thought to whom she can share her feelings at midnight, she was reminded of the Prayer Tower and also the announcement ‘You can call for prayer help at any time of the day or night’. With a heavy heart, she called the number 044-45999000. On the other side, right on the first ring itself, she heard the voice of a woman saying, “Jesus Calls Prayer Tower…..What shall I pray for you?”. It was a great comfort to Vasantha that she had a sister to share the burden with.
“Comfort, comfort my people, says your God”. (Isaiah 40:1)
Vasantha shared over the phone with much sadness about her sister Karpagam’s family's health problems. The Prayer warrior encouraged her saying, ‘The Bible says ”If two or three gather together in my name, I will be there”. Don't worry sister! We will both pray for the Lord's healing to come upon your sister's family’ and she prayed for the Lord to heal her sister’s family from Covid-19. Vasantha also prayed along with the Prayer warrior. Then there was great peace in her heart.
Jesus: Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. (Matthew 18:19)
Then Vasantha called the Jesus Calls Prayer Tower now and then and got prayed for her sister Karpagam. Whenever she contacted the Prayer Tower, the Prayer warriors prayed with tears, understanding the situation. And the Lord listened to all the prayers that she offered along with the Prayer warriors and He answered them. Surprisingly, Karpagam and all of her family were completely healed from the corona infection! Unexpected accident, physical illness, family problems, bitterness caused by misunderstanding with the children or parents or siblings, heartbreak due to betrayal, suicidal thoughts due to failure in life, husband’s drinking habit, suffering caused by loved ones' addiction to drugs, debt burden on family or business, problems at workspot, children, delay of blessings including gift of child, own home, employment, and promotion and travel safety, like which there are so many needs that people have. When faced with such life crises, many stumble wondering what they are going to do next. For such people who are troubled and fearful in their hearts, the Prayer Warriors in the Jesus Calls Prayer Tower are ready all the 24 hours to say words of faith saying, ‘Don’t worry! God will do a miracle!’ and pray along with them.
“Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come,
he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.””. ( Isaiah 35:4)
The Lord’s decree and the Ministry discipline
On September 26, 1977, the Lord commanded Dr. D.G.S. Dhinakaran to establish a 24 hours Prayer Tower, for the people who are exhausted by many problems and seek emergency prayer help. SInce then, for about 6 years, Dr. D.G.S. Dhinakaran had been waiting upon the Lord in prayer everyday, to receive the grace to fulfill this command. Through the prayers and the financial support of so many dear brothers and sisters, the Jesus Calls Prayer Tower Ministry started on August 12, 1983. In the beginning, prayers were offered to people in two languages, English and Tamil. Today, the prayer service is offered in 8 languages: Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Gujarati and English. There are Prayer Warriors who have committed themselves to the Ministry of the Lord and who have gone through training for prayer, to pray along with the One who has called, reminding them with appropriate Scriptures to the people, strengthening their faith, with the anointing of the Holy Spirit. The technical facility has been made available for the uninterrupted operation of the Telephone Prayer Tower during times of epidemics such as corona and any other obstruction. There is no holiday for the Telephone Prayer Tower. Prayers are offered day and night without any hindrance. An average of 15,000 people receive prayer help over the phone every day.A total of 400 Prayer Warriors are engaged in prayer service as full-time and volunteer staff. After the prayers are offered over the phone, daily the prayer requests are compiled and sent to Dr. Paul Dhinakaran. And he prays for those prayer requests at the Lord’s feet. As they continue to pray for prayer request which are shared over the telephone, the Prayer Warriors pray for the Jesus Calls Young Partners in the Prayer Tower. '' On the birthdays and wedding Anniversaries of the Jesus Calls partners, the prayer warriors contact them over phone and say special prayers. The Prayer Tower is technically equipped so that not even a single phone call that comes seeking prayer help is missed. Maybe when someone calls, if the call is not connected that number is recorded on the computer of the Prayer Tower. The Prayer Warrior will contact that number, inquire and pray for them.
“I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail.” (Luke 22:32)
Here are the Testimonies of some people who have received Prayers through the Telephone Prayer Tower:
Miraculous Healing without surgery
My mother’s name is Pushpa. She is 58 years old. She was sick for a long time. When we consulted the doctors, they told us that she had a liver disorder and that she had to undergo surgery but then there is no for it. Though I was heartbroken, I din’t lose hope. I called the Prayer Tower night and day. The Prayer Warriors would encourage me and give me hope. Then I took my mother to another doctor. There, they asked us to take up some tests. They also asked my mom to undergo surgery and they fixed the date for it. They admitted my mother to the ICU and they started the preparations for the surgery. And before the surgery, they took a scan. And when the results came, they were astonished to see that the liver is perfect and healthy. And even without the surgery, my mother was sent back home. Jesus healed my mother and He has given her a brand new Liver. All praise and glory to Jesus!

Laptop which got lost
On 15th of June, 2021, when my father was returning back home from Karaikudi, he lost his laptop. And so, he was very depressed. But I immediately called the Jesus Calls Prayer Tower and asked the Prayer Warriors to pray that we should get back the lost laptop. And they prayed for it. Two days later, someone called and said he was looking at the phone number on the ID card that was with the laptop and that the laptop was safe for him. In that way, my father got back the lost laptop safely. Praise be to Jesus! Thanks to the Prayer Warrior who prayed powerfully!

My friend Kushum Nayak lives in Goa. Last April,2021, his father had been suffering from severe fever. When they tested, he was Covid positive. After two days, her son who is 17 years old was also tested positive. They were both home quarantined itself and suddenly one day early morning, the boy had breathing trouble. Immediately, my friend had called the Jesus Calls Prayer Tower. During that early morning, a Prayer Warrior had prayed powerfully. Soon after the prayers, they got the phone number of a doctor and they were helped to get the treatment for it. And after taking Medicines, even though her father and her son had vomitting and other effects, they were not forced to be admitted in the hospital. Thanks to the Prayer Warriors who prayed for us and strengthened us at the right time.

“ Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
The expenses such as the cost of internet facilities, computer facilities, staff salaries, etc. for Prayer Warriors and for them to attend calls from anywhere else are all met by the sacrificial offerings given by the Partners for the Lord’s Ministry.
