It was a graceful evening all the three days, filled with the mighty presence of God. On the first and third day of the meeting, Dr. Paul Dhinakaran delivered the word of God to the thousands who gathered. A greater revelation of God's blessings was established in the hearts of the multitude. Dr. Paul Dhinakaran prayed for the blessings and deliverance of the people. God revealed the names and sicknesses of the people precisely to Dr. Paul Dhinakaran, strongly confronting them of what the Lord dislikes in them. On the second day, Sis.

All the three days, thousands were touched by the Word of God and were delivered out of their bondages and addictions. Many were healed of their sickness and many received the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Every day, during the end of the meeting, thousands of people thronged at the sides of the podium to testify the miracle they received through the Lord during the prayers of the Dhinakarans. Many who received miracles and deliverance through Jesus Calls ministries travelled from far across, to participate in the Bidar meeting and testify their supernatural encounter to the people of Bidar. Many testimonies arouse right during the three day’s meeting and few were given a moment to testify to the people about the miracle and deliverance they received during the meeting. The presence of God filled the place bringing joy and peace of Jesus Christ to all the people. Every individual returned home with deliverance and a greater anointing.
Senthil Kumar was associated with evil habits and engrossed with demons. He began to push his limits to the extreme end with his habits. He was inebriated with every possible substance that intoxicated his body, mind and soul. Satan brought him down through these habits and Senthil lost everything in life. Doctors had told him that both his kidneys have failed. He was literally on the streets, and one day he accidentally landed on a Jesus Calls Television Program where Dr. Paul Dhinakaran called out his name as the Lord revealed to him. Senthil felt a fire striking him from above. He testified that the power of God liberated him from his habits completely right from that moment. He was in tears thanking the Lord for placing new kidneys and giving him a new beginning.

Shirley Naveen from Hassan, Karnataka listed out the wonders our Lord performed in her family. Her father was murdered and her mother was falsely accused of the murder. Deeply distressed, the family lost peace and hope. It was then she heard late Bro. DGS Dhinakaran calling her out by her name through a Jesus Calls TV program telecasted on 'God' channel. The Lord promised her to build her future and give peace to the family. Likewise, her sisters got married almost immediately and the accusation on her mother was disproved. She was worried about the delay in finding a partner. The Lord straightened her path with His promise for her again through Dr. Paul Dhinakaran, calling her name in a Jesus Calls TV Program. She thanked the Lord for building her future and for her wonderful children.
God has made Jesus Calls Ministry a channel of blessing and deliverance for countless people. This prayer festival was organized so perfectly by the abundant grace of God and by the immense support of the partners and well-wishers of this ministry. Our prayers and aspirations are that not one soul who participates in these meetings must leave the premises without healing and deliverance. For this purpose the Jesus Calls ministries stand at the gap, interceding to God for His favour. Many of such meetings will dawn all around the world transforming societies and generations, forever. Jesus Calls is always thankful at heart for all the organizers, churches & Pastors of the city of Bidar and the Volunteers who represented God’s Kingdom through their noble services.
