“Lord Jesus, if You are the real God, please save our lives.”
With a broken heart, a sickly body and attentive ears, Kallol formed these desperate words into a prayer. He was hungry to know this miraculous God he was hearing about through the radio broadcast.
Peace was nowhere to be found within Kallol or his parents. An unknown sickness struck them, and no medicines or prayers from their priests offered any hope. In fact, their sickness was a result of black magic.
There were those who didn’t want to see Kallol and his family thrive. Their aim was destruction, and through black magic, they began to achieve their goal. Now, Kallol and his parents lay sick, unable to get out of bed and helpless against fast-approaching death. It was at this helpless moment that God broke through.
A Life-saving Program
One night, as Kallol turned the dial on his radio, he heard a radio pastor talking about Jesus and His ability to perform miracles. Kallol attentively listened to testimony after testimony of God’s healing touch demonstrated in peoples’ lives.
When the pastor began to pray over the air for those who needed healing, Kallol lifted up a prayer to Jesus, asking for His help if He was truly God. Heavy hearted, Kallol went to bed.
After he had fallen asleep, a bright light filled his room, and he heard the voice of the Lord.
When Kallol awoke the next morning, instead of being on the brink of death, he began a completely new life. During the night, Jesus had completely healed him and his parents!
Astonished at this miracle, each one decided Jesus would be the center of their lives.
Growing in the Lord
Kallol and his parents were eager to grow in their knowledge of Jesus, but they knew no one who could guide them in their walks with Him. They turned to their only available resource for discipleship—their radio—and found more Christian programs on the radio. Later, they discovered Gospel for Asia-supported radio programs. The never missed a broadcast, and they continually learned God’s Word and grew in their personal walks with Him.
Although they faced ridicule from their community, Kallol and his parents did not sway in their faith. They eventually found a nearby church and received discipleship from the Gospel for Asia (GFA)-supported pastor.
Kallol matured in his faith and love of the Lord, and he committed his life to serving Him. He began talking about Jesus every day at his workplace and during his free time, and he even began helping in the men’s ministry in the church.
Kallol’s cry for help had been powerfully answered, and God showed up in a miraculous way, revealing He indeed is mighty to save!
