Good Samaritan Church women’s Prayer Fellowship led by Sis.Jansi Balachandran has been named after Yahel, the bravest and wise woman of the Bible described in Judges 4&5th chapters. It was started in the year 1990 with just 4 or 5 sisters praying together with fasting on every Tuesday from 10.30am to 3.00 pm. Last week of every month 3days fasting prayer is held particularly to pray for deliverance of individuals & families, for the blessing of the city & nation and for the various ministry and other needs of the church. The fellowship has grown stronger over the years with about 80 to 100 women attending the prayer meeting every week. Their sincere and united intercessory prayer has brought healing and breaking of bondage in many families. Several marriages and childbirths have been witnessed as answers to their prayers. Their consistent and committed prayer upholds the ministry of the church. Hallelujah Tower is a reality this day, thanks to the tremendous contribution made by “yahel group” through their 24hour chain prayer and financial support raised from Canteen & other sales.
Weekly fasting prayer meeting consists of praise & worship, witnesses, sharing the Word and intercessory prayer. Once or twice a year one day women’s rally is held open to all women of Madurai, with special women speakers sharing God’s word. Members of Yahel also take a day off to relax as a group on trips to places like Courtalum and Thekkadi. Charity ministry is also undertaken to help poor widows and the elderly. Special program during x-mas with gift giving is a regular feature. Sometimes a representative group visit branch churches and encourages their women believers to grow stronger in the Lord.
The activities are planned prayerfully by a team of 12 leaders meeting periodically under the leadership of Sis.Jansi Balachandran (9487479717) as President, Sis. Dhanavthy Rajkumar(9842924325) as Secretary and Sis. Suganthy prakash(9865981645) as Treasurer. You are most welcome to join this women’s group for prayer and fellowship.
