Jesus Redeems – Reviews

My dear Brothers and sisters,
I came to know about Mohan C. Lazarus annan in my college days. He was my most inspiring person in my college days. From their web-site,


Though Christianity triumphantly landed in India via one of the South Indian Ports on 69 AD, the advent of salvational joy practically ventured into the hearts of the Tamil speaking South Indians only when the selfless missionaries maneuvered in this southern tip from the middle of the 18th Century AD.

In this situation, our LORD had a very specific purpose to have the genesis of our Jesus Redeems Ministry as a small Prayer Group in a very interior small hamlet – Nalumavadi on 2nd October 1978 while our Nation celebrated the 109th Birth Anniversary of the Father of our Nation – Mahatma Gandhi, who, as was percept widely, redeemed our Nation from the wretched bondage of the alien rule. Now our Jesus Redeems Ministry guides the people those who are under the miserable servitude of sin, in the path where their glorious redemption by the precious blood of Calvary awaits.

Following are the List of Ministries through which the Gospel has been propagated among the gentiles:

  1. Gospel Ministry

  2. Television Ministry

  3. Magazine Ministry

  4. Youth Ministry

  5. Children Ministry

  6. Prayer Ministry

  7. Publication of Books

  8. Letter Ministry

  9. Missionary Ministry

  10. Medical Ministry

  11. Tracts Ministry

  12. Women’s Ministry

  13. Video & Audio Ministry

  14. Prayer Camps

  15. Soul Winning Training Camps

They also have great vision for Tamil Nadu. The project is called “Blessed TN 2010

“The God loves our Tamil Nadu very much. That is why He allowed His disciple Apostle Thomas to shed his blood in this Tamil land. As a result our God has raised numerous workers, missionaries and prayer warriors from Tamil Nadu for the blessing of entire India. While we go forth in our prayers, our God did astonishing blest changes in Tamil Nadu.

Before the year 2010, Tamil Nadu is going to be the blessed State in India. We are going to see conspicuous changes in Spiritual, social and economic environs. If these changes have to come, the LORD God commanded to ‘cover the Nation with prayers’.

By obeying the LORD’s voice, two times we made ‘Blessed Prayer Journey’ throughout Tamil Nadu to bless it and prayed for the purpose. Not only that, to pray daily, exclusively for the blessings of Tamil Nadu, we raised hundreds of prayer warriors elsewhere.

I am also joining hands with those prayer warriors. As a result, I can explicitly see blessed changes. The Churches are swelling up; the congregations are filling with spiritual enthusiasm; and our government has formulated many laws to eradicate social evils.

Many blessed plans that bring goodness to the people of our State are coming out daily. The rain of blessings poured much more than that of any time before. Tamil Nadu has been protected from the devastating harmness due to the attacks by terrorists and natural calamity.

In this situation, the Satan, who knows that he has only very limited time at hand, furiously works against the Nation. Obscenity, lewdness, murders, molestations, disputes, accidents, suicides, etc. are increasing in the country.

To nullify these evil designs of the Adversary, the LORD emphasizes only one thing repeatedly; i.e., “Intensify Prayers”. Through prayer, only all these cunning designs and deeds of the Deceiver can be emptied completely. Therefore, dear children of God, step up your prayers! Pray for the Nation! Plead by standing at the gap! If you need prayer points, inform us; we will send you the necessary prayer points.

Thus says the LORD, “Constitute the Army of God in every district!’

Of course, you may minister as a group; you may act with a definite vision pertaining to your district! In that case, you can contact us: we will be very eager to help you in your prayer and ministerial activities. You are the God-elect Joshuas to purify your areas!

Let us pray together! Let us arise and act! Let us see the revival!

Tamil Christian Blog requests all Tamil Christian Blog readers to pray for this wonderful ministry. Especially the project Blessed Tamil Nadu 2010 should have big impact on this world. This web-site also has many more stuff which you can browse on. Please browse their web-site Jesus Redeems. You can find some of the “Jesus redeems videos” here.

Tamil Christian Blog remembers Jesus Redeems Ministry in their every day Prayers.

To-day’s wonderful God’s Message..

Filed under: messages, Prayer — Tamil Christian @ 7:34 am

Exodus 33 : 7

Now Moses used to take the tent and to pitch it outside the camp,
far away from the camp, and he called it “The Tent of Meeting.”
It happened that everyone who sought Yahweh went out to the Tent of Meeting,
which was outside the camp.

Make your prayer time private and confidential.
Keep away from your busy life. be still and spend enough time with GOD.
Let not your work, your money, your entertainments, your relationships
disturb your precious time you spend with GOD.
Be willing to remove every single excuse that justifies your absence from his holy presence
Dont just do it for the sake, or to get something done from him.
But talk to him because you love him.
There are people who watch you close and follow your steps,
so help them also walk into the tent of meeting

He admires the time you spend with him in his presence more than the ministry you do for him.
He loves you not for what you do, but for whom you are and you are precious for him.

Prayer Quotes

Filed under: Prayer, Prayer Quotes, Quotes — Tamil Christian @ 9:07 am

People ask me what advice I have for a married couple struggling in their relationship. I always answer: pray and forgive. And to young people from violent homes, I say: pray and forgive. And again, even to the single mother with no family support: pray and forgive.

Prayer enlarges the heart until it is capable of containing God’s gift
of Himself.

– Mother Terasa

Pray as you can, not as you can’t.

 -John Chapman

Prayer always works to transform us into what God wants us to be. Not
what we want to be.

Prayer and love are learned in the hour when prayer becomes impossible
and your heart has turned to stone.

-Thomas Merton

Prayer begins by talking to God, but it ends by listening to Him. In
the face of Absolute Truth, silence is the soul’s language.

-Fulton J. Sheen

Prayer is an act of love, to God, from God, through God. Prayer is an
act of love with those for whom we pray.

Prayer is fundamentally a transformation of will, a lifting of the
heart and will to God.

-Peter Kreeft, The God Who Loves You

Prayer is not an old woman’s idle amusement. Properly understood and
applied, it is the most potent instrument of action.

-Mohandas Gandhi

Prayer is not so much a way to find God as a way of resting in him…who
loves us, who is near to us…

-Thomas Merton

Prayer is the breath of the soul…

Prayer is the inner bath of love into which the soul plunges itself.

-St. John Vianney

Prayer is an expression of who we are…. We are a living
incompleteness. We are a gap, an emptiness that calls for fullfillment.

-Thomas Merton

Prayer is loving and not thinking.

-Thomas Green, When the Well Runs Dry

Prayer is the laying aside of thoughts.

-Evagrios Ponticus, “On Prayer” in the Philokalia

Prayer need not be a burdensome duty. It is meant to be a joyful and
creative privilege.

-Hannah Hurnard

Prayer requires more of the heart than the tongue.

-Adam Clarke

Prayer unites the soul to God.

-Julian of Norwich

Seven days without prayer makes one weak.

-Allen E. Vartlett

Souls who do not practice prayer are like people whose limbs are

-St. Teresa of Avila

That your enemies have been created is God’s doing; that they hate you
and wish to ruin you is their own doing. What should you say about
them in your mind? “Lord be merciful to them, forgive them their sins,
put the fear of God in them, change them!” You are loving in them not
what they are, but what you would have them to become.

-St. Augustine

The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to
pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that
words cannot express.

-Romans 8:26 (thanks Katherine)

The desire is your prayers; and if your desire is without ceasing,
your prayer will also be without ceasing. The continuance of your
longing is the continuance of your prayer.

-St. Augustine

The mark of a good prayer life is not abundant consolation, but growth
in the virtues.

-Thomas Green, When the Well Runs Dry

The Our Father is to prayer what Christ is to humanity.

-Simone Weil

The prayer of listening makes things simple but it also makes us
vulnerable, and that is frightening. Listening makes us open to
Christ, the Word of God, spoken in all things: in the material world,
the Scriptures, the Church, and sacraments and, sometimes most
threateningly, in our fellow human beings. To listen at prayer is to
take the chance of hearing the voice of Christ in the poor, the weak,
those whom we love and those whom we do not love.

-Benedict Groeschel, Listening at Prayer

The soul which has come into intimate contact with God in the silence
of the prayer chamber is never out of conscious touch with the Father;
the heart is always going out to Him in loving communion, and the
moment the mind is released from the task upon which it is engaged, it
returns as naturally to God as the bird does to its nest. What a
beautiful conception of prayer we get if we regard it in this light.

-E.M. Bounds

The whole purpose of prayer is to know, to possess and be possessed by

-Thomas Green, When the Well Runs Dry

There are four ways God answers prayer:
No, not yet;
No, I love you too much;
Yes, I thought you’d never ask;
Yes, and here’s more.

-Anne Lewis (thanks Libby)

The time will surely come when the well of our imagination runs dry
and we must either be convinced that God is not the image we have of
him or else we will take the loss of the image for the loss of God
himself—and we will be tempted to abandon prayer as a hopeless endeavor.

-Thomas Green, When the Well Runs Dry

There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered

-St. Teresa of Avila

Virtues are formed by prayer. Prayer preserves temperance. Prayer
suppresses anger. Prayer prevents emotions of pride and envy. Prayer
draws into the soul the Holy Spirit, and raises man to Heaven.

-St. Ephraem

What seem our worst prayers may really be, in God’s eyes, our best.
Those, I mean, which are least supported by devotional feeling. For
these may come from a deeper level than feeling. God sometimes seems
to speak to us most intimately when he catches us, as it were, off our

-C.S. Lewis

We can read all the books that have ever been written about prayer,
but until we actually choose…to pray, we will never learn.

-Hope MacDonald

We are always in the presence of God, yet it seems to me that those
who pray are in His presence in a very different sense.

-St. Teresa of Avila

When at night you cannot sleep, talk to the Shepherd and stop counting

-Author unknown

When prayer is a struggle, do not worry about the prayers that you
cannot pray. You yourself are a prayer to God at that moment. All that
is within you cries out to Him, and He hears all the pleas that your
suffering soul and body are making to Him with groanings which cannot
be uttered.

-O. Hallesby

When you are making so much noise…

Whoever flees prayer, flees all that is good!

-St. John of the Cross

Whole prayer is nothing but love.

-St. Augustine

Why pray if we cannot change God? …is that why we pray? To change
omniscient Love? Isn’t it rather to learn what it is and to fulfill
it? Not to change it by our acts, but to change our acts by it.

-Peter Kreeft, The God Who Loves You

Words stand between silence and silence: between the silence of things
and the silence of our own being, between the silence of the world and
the silence of God. When we have really met and known the world in
silence, words do not separate us from the world nor from other men,
nor from God, nor from ourselves because we no longer trust entirely
in language to contain reality.

-Thomas Merton

You’re here, on your knees, praying as the seconds on your Mickey
Mouse clock tick by, but in God’s time, you’re working with Him at the
moment of creation, when there is no time.

You’re no longer fighting God, trying to make Him do what you want.
You’re accepting what happens, and your main prayer transforms into
one that asks God for nothing more than understanding and perhaps
strength to endure.

-Amy Welborn
