ship which was run by them got stuck at Cuttack harbour in Orissa State. It was there for four months. It
could not be repaired despite the fact that many technical experts did their best to revive it. At that time, Pappa
Shankar visited a house in Nagercoil where Sister Melba met her. When she requested Pappa Shankar to pray for a
miracle, the latter asked Melba to get in touch with the captain and the crew of the ship through a mobile phone. Pappa Shankar
requested the captain and others to lift up their hands towards the heaven and to join with her in prayers. After finishing

Miracle in the pit dug for a bore well
One brother, namely, P.Palace Sunder Raj reported from Chennai during June 2004 that due to the water scarcity
in Chennai, they faced this acute problem. Since the wells surrounding his house had dried up, he wanted to put a bore well. Pappa Shankar came to his house and showed that particular place for putting the bore
well and told them that they would get very good water from this place. After digging the ground upto a depth of 58 feet,
the auger i.e. the boring tool broke down and a part of it got embedded in the earth. Pappa Shankar told them not to worry
and gave oil after praying over it. As this oil was poured into the pit, the broken part of the auger came out of the water
miraculously within 10 minutes. Then this brother requested Pappa Shankar to give him a bottle of oil prayed over by her. He wanted to use this oil for delivering the people from sicknesses. Pappa Shankar acceded to her request and this brother used this oil for performing miracles in the midst
of the Hindu people.
“I was healed of
I am a Hindu.
My name is Mohan. I had strongly believed in the deity of a Hindu goddess Adhi Parasakthi of Mel Marivathur, Tamil
Nadu, India. My father is one of the leaders of this sect. My family lives in
Trichy, Tamil Nadu. I am working as a Government Servant in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. All of a sudden, I became ill and my legs
and hands ceased to function; my ears also did not function. I thus became bedridden. My parents and my mother-in-law sought
divine healing by praying to our goddess. For this purpose, my father took “Kavadi”
– a penance of carrying a wooden arch on head, walking over a long distance and reaching the temple. They also used to undertake a penance of piercing their tongues with a sharp iron rod and a penance of
rolling themselves on a hot bed of coal on fire. They also spent a lot of money on charity. I was treated medically by many
doctors but to no avail. At that time, a Christian met me and asked me to participate in the fasting-cum-prayer meeting being
held by Pappa Shankar Ammal once a month on the first Saturday. Accordingly,
I attended this meeting. I was sitting on the back row in this meeting. Pappa
Shankar Ammal could not see me. However, she called me by name and said, “Mohan,
rise up and walk”. The people who were present in the meeting were taken by a surprise. The Lord Jesus healed me.
My mother-in-law who stays in Trichy also
attended the prayer meeting held by Pappa Shankar Ammal subsequently. Pappa Shankar Ammal was inspired by the Holy Spirit
to advise my mother-in-law not to venture going out without wearing her sandals. However,
one day, the latter forgot to wear her sandals while going out. She trampled on a live cobra. Then the cobra started chasing
her. At that time, she cried out, “Oh Jesus whom Pappa Shakar Ammal worships”. The snake immediately stopped chasing her.
“I was healed of cancer”
My name is Mala. I was suffering from cancer
for a number of years and I was ultimately reduced to a thin body of skin and bones.
At that time, Pappa Shankar Ammal held a fasting-cum-prayer meeting in
a place called “S.R. Gate” in Arakonam, Tamil Nadu on a second Saturday.
I was carried to this place for divine healing. I was laid down on a corner. Pappa Shankar Ammal after praying for
the healing of other sick people came to me for prayers. She commanded the decease of cancer to go from my body in the name
of Jesus Christ. A power struck my body and I was immediately healed. This miracle came as a great surprise to the doctors
who treated me.
“I was blessed with
a baby son”
My name is Parimala. I was barren for many
years. My parents and my parents-in-law were very much worried about this. At that time, I attended the fasting-cum-prayer
meeting held by Pappa Shankar Ammal in Arakonam, Tamil Nadu. During the meeting, Pappa Shankar Ammal due to divine revelation
told that there were about 32 barren women present in the meeting. She asked them to come forward for prayers. I was one of them. She prayed for me and gave me “prayer oil”.
Within a month of her prayer, I became pregnant. The Lord Jesus has now
blessed me with a baby son. I thank Pappa Shankar Ammal for her prayers.
A testimony of a woman delivered from 127 evil spirits
"My name is Packiam. I was born in a Hindu family. For 16 years, I was possessed and tormented by the Devil.
I was living in the graveyard. I was eating the ashes of the dead bodies burnt on the cremation grounds. Nobody dared to come
near me. I was howling like a wolf at night and roaming about the graveyard. At that time, my family members came to know
about the deliverance meeting held by Pappa Shankar Ammal in Arakonam, Chennai. Then they took Pappa Shankar Ammal to the
graveyard. On seeing her, I was shocked. I cried out asking her not to come near me. I saw a light descend on me. Pappa Shankar
Ammal came near me and prayed. Immediately, all the 127 evil spirits in my body fled. I have been set free from these evil
spirits by the power of Christ Jesus. I now live for the true God".
The above testimony has
really touched our hearts. A dear woman of God, aged 75 years, who is used by God mightily through signs and wonders, went
to the graveyard to deliver a single woman from the clutches of the Devil, when many servants of God do not choose to minister
to individuals but to multitudes. In His ministry, Jesus cared for individuals and delivered them personally. Let us follow
the footsteps of our Master while ministering.
