Prayer is the backbone of the 'Jesus Redeems' Ministry. And that too praying solely for the dying souls is its principal intention.
For this purpose, a team of 7 children of God has been appointed and they pray daily for the Nation, for all Ministries and for the Churches.
In the year 1978, on June 26th , Monday, whilst brother was praying in the deserted area of his native place Nalumavadi, the Holy Spirit revealed Ministerial matters through a vision. When Brother cried out ,"Lord! I am childish. I have not enough wisdom nor strength to do such great things which you have shown me ", the Lord intervened and insisted Brother to set up a team who could support him in prayer. Thus bloomed the "PRAYER TEAM".
Obeying the Lordâ€™s command, on Oct 2nd in the year 1978, the 'Jesus Redeems' Ministry prayer group was started as a small prayer cell in a tiny house in Nalumavadi.At the beginning, some women, natives of Nalumavadi and a few brothers gathered together daily and prayed for the Nation, for all Ministries, for the Churches and for the people who are in need. This small prayer cell that gathered, with no discrimination of any Congregation but only with the prime motive of prayer has grown huge as a banyan tree now as the 'Jesus Redeems' Ministry. The reason behind it is :. PRAYER! PRAYER! PRAYER!
Every Thursday from 11a.m to 3 p.m, fasting prayer to pray for the Nation, for all Ministries, for the Churches and for the people who are in need.
On the last Saturday of every month nearly 40,000 children of God alongwith many men of God fast and pray for the Nation, for all Ministries, for the Churches and for the people who are in need.This is the 'Thirappin Vaasal Jebam'.
On the second Saturday of every month, from 9 p.m. to early morning 5. a. m, an 'All Night Prayer' takes place.
Every day men and women,as a team come to the â€˜Tabernacle of Godâ€™ to fast and pray for the Nation, for all Ministries, for the Churches and for the people who are in need. This is the 'Indiaâ€™s Watchman' prayer.
The 'midnight prayer to destroy the works of the dark spirits by prayer warriors who could pray from wherever they are.
Such are the kinds of prayers upheld.
The last Friday of every month,i.e., on the eve of the Thirappin Vaasal Jebam from morning 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. a special prayer team called the ' Army of God ' gather and uphold wrestling prayer at the â€˜Palace of Godâ€™ to defend Brother in prayer.
The Lord commanded to cover the Nation with His wordâ€¦.to enfold the Nation with prayer. As a sign of obedience to His command, 'Prayer walk' was carried out as a team in all District Headquarters under the leadership of our staff, Bro. Paul Purushothaman, to enfold the Nation with prayer.The whole day, with fasting, the team walked up prayerfully in all the lanes, streets and roads and from 6 p.m to 9 p.m a special prayer for the District by members of the Churches of that area and the 'Jesus Redeems' team was upheld.
Having obeyed His command to enfold the Nation with prayer, the Lord graced the blooming of the 'Blessed Tamilnad'. As a result of this untiring effort, the Lord declared the year 2012 as the 'Year of Harvest', and a 12 hour fasting prayer in all the 32 District Headquarters have begun by the grace of the Lord.
Thus the 'Jesus Redeems' Prayer Group that had a despised beginning, has now rooted in Christ to shake the Nation and for this grace of the Lord, we stand debted to Him deep from our hearts.
