The TPM Prayer Chain

These days you get to hear weird sermons from the TPM Pulpit. Their disillusionment is so catastrophic that you feel ashamed of spending your time hearing what they say. As usual, you should be more surprised why the TPM believers have no clue of the message and continue their life with the notion that they are safely on the way to New Jerusalem.

Today I would like to discuss about the TPM Prayer Chain. You might have heard of 24 hour prayer chains where people transfer the baton of the relay every hour and then a new group takes over. However TPM has a very sophisticated chain where prayers are dealt with a different perspective.

What is the TPM Prayer Chain

First Aspect:

According to the TPM Clergy, the prayers of simple believers are quite ineffective to move God. This is not explicit but it is implied. Therefore, a TPM believer has to request( this is also a kind of prayer) the local TPM Clergy to forward the prayers to God along with his recommendation. So as this Clergy happens to be in the “Servant of God” category, the prayer gets a priority rating. However, if your prayer needs a better rating, you need to approach the Center Pastor for his prayer recommendation. The best prayers can be done by the Chief Pastors as they are directly reporting to God unlike the rest of us.

Second Aspect:

As TPM Follows a hierarchical structure, The Prayer Setup is as follows

  • The TPM Local Clergy prays for his congregation
  • The Center Pastor Prays for the TPM Ministers under him
  • The TPM Chief Clergy prays for the center pastors/mothers under him.

Hear this audio and evaluate for yourself. You will know that TPM Chiefs have a hotline to God, whereas we believers have a snail mail connection.

Does the Bible Support any of the TPM structure for prayer?

Clearly the TPM Structure and their prayer chains are in stark violation to what the bible commands.  They have duped their believers into believing that Jesus follows their structure of worldly hierarchies.  I assume that even their clergy believes that their prayers are more powerful and that is why they are trying to pray on the behalf of their believers. As mentioned in our earlier articles, they like to compare themselves with Moses and look at others as spiritually inferior. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. You do not become any better because of your so called consecration.

The TPM Prayer Chain

How could they ever believe in such a lie after they read the following scripture from their own bibles.

  • Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Heb 4:16
  • But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit. 1 Cor 6:17
  • “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are ALL brothers. Matt 23:8
  • But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9
  • But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. Matt 6:6
  • “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. Matt 6:16
  • He said to them: “You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with or visit a Gentile. But God has shown me that I should not call anyone impure or unclean. Acts 10:28
  • In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, andin you. John 14:20
  • 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.  30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:  1 Cor 1:29-30
  • For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 1 Timothy 2:5

 

Conclusion

Dear Reader,

You are worth all that God has and that is why he send his only begotten son to redeem you. If he could have redeemed you by anything less, he would have done that. (Matt 26:39). Now beware of these dogs who are trying to add to the blood of Christ, their works in the flesh which they call as consecration.

Watch out for those dogs, those people who do evil, those mutilators who say you must be circumcised to be saved. Philippians 3:2

Please do not be led astray in thinking that your prayers are any less worth because you are married. When you call unto the father as “My Father in Heaven”, he is eagerly waiting for you even though he already knows what you need. Do not be duped by people like Teju who are leading many youths in TPM to a place far off from the presence of the loving father.

The TPM Hierarchy system has got no relevance when you are before God. You and the TPM Chief will be judged in the same way. In fact they are at a greater risk because they teach and lead many people astray (James 3:1)

  1. Excellent work once again.
    Classic case of the blind leading the blind. Is there hope for this group? Yes, but only in the blood of Christ and His righteousness.
    Wishing that more people would read these articles without bias and their eyes will be opened. They can then decide either to quit this satanic cult or demand change. If not this load of their deeper truth will take them and their zealous flock to eternal damnation. Lord, have mercy!

  3. I think this site has covered all most all of unbilical Tpm practices. Chain prayer was left and it is covered too. Good work. Catholics call this system prayer vigil. See gotquestions dot org on this. Sikhs do akhand path and akhand Kurgan, where they do continuous reciting of their holy scriptures non stop. Buddhist (I think) also have some kind of non stop prayer recitation (I am not sure). Although Bible says to pray without ceasing, I don’t think Paul meant it as Chain prayer, like Tpm where one ceases to pray after one hour. This idea seems pagan as Jesus said, ” ..for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him .

  4. For vain is all our prayers if we believe our prayers are answered only through clergy system.

    News flash! Prayers of daily sinners don’t even reach God! Repent and get right with God!
    Gypsum TPMites, lose the TPM title and become part of the true Church of God. This site may feel offensive to you, it is a warning for you to turn back, examine and get right with God. Remove the plank from your eyes, and then you can clearly see the speck in your brother’s eye. Take these posts as righteous judgement rather than gossip time.

    A church can guide you to a path of Perfection or, damnation. When Judgement day arrives, you can’t say, we were not warned to the true light – Jesus Christ.

    Think of all the souls lost in delusions. Do not be deluded in the Jesus/Christianity that has been a figment of your imagination.

    John 3:18
    He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    1 John 2:3,4,5

    3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

    4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

    5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

  6. I don’t see any wrong in prayer chain. I was in one of the chain for a special gathering. We had some 100 points to pray. The line items were quite generic which can be prayed for like weather, new soul, revival, etc.

    1. Bahubali, Jesus does not say form a prayer chain and pray to God.
      Prayer chains are man’s inventions.
      Bahubali just draw near to God in the mighty name of Jesus, and let God hear your prayer.
      One of the most beautiful words of Jesus, Be not afraid, only believe.
      Can you see the difference between your faith at work, and the inventions of the prayer chain?

      1. Good thought. I was trying to see how early Christians prayed all night when Paul and Silas was imprisoned. They could have prayed for 5 to 10 seconds and leave.

    2. Dear Bahubali
      Prayer chains are just manipulative gheraoing of God. God cannot be manipulated by your stunts .
      If you have a prayer need, just pray it in faith and leave it to God to answer it.

      And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.
      Matt 6:7

      1. I agree it’s man’s invention and is it not right? Pray without ceasing, pray like the widow and the unjust judge, pray like Jacob etc? These are few that I see in scripture people praying. There is general saying that prayer brings victory. True, agree that vain repetition is disliked in bible. Jesus prayed whole night.

        I don’t think we should generalise.

        1. Brother bahubali,
          Try to understand the difference between ‘pray without ceasing’ and ‘chain prayer.’ As the article says, the modern invention called chain prayer perscribes, that an individual or group is supposed pray for few hours only and after that he/she is free from the responsibility, because the leaders appointed responsibility of praying to next slot of individual or next group. This is different from whole night prayer or ceaseless praying. Where do you find such prayer baton passing relay race example in Bible ? This chain prayer is modern invention of Pentecostalism. Few groups have chain prayed for 100 years as if making genius book of world records. Search Google for it.

        2. @bahubali,
          Another form of chain prayer in TPM is when you pray and then hand over it to local Tpm saint, as if God is more interested in getting prayer routed through this second level mediator. He then prays and if his version is not answered, he hands the responsibility to centre pastor the third higher elite in escalation matrix. If centre pastors prayer isn’t answered then CP will hand over it to chief pastor who supposedly is in direct touch with God. No where in Bible is this kind of hierarchy defined. This is Tpm exclusive chain prayer. If I am not wrong this is what article is trying to explain.

        3. Alright Nath as you spell. Chain prayers are evil and man made of whores. Let’s abolish chain prayer. You and I will refrain from such intercessions. If your mom or dad or bro or sis, kith or kin is interceeding and supplicating, leave them alone. It’s not harming you. Isn’t it?

          And the prayer chain that is practiced doesn’t have any such rules. You have rights to come and pray and go as per your convenience. Be it 15 minutes or 35 hours.

        4. Brother Koshy,
          Can you explain me what is the idea behind chain prayer ? What is difference between simple prayer and chain prayer ? Why the need of chain prayer ?

          As far as I understand, – Prayer or supplication is request to God, to help us. It is not a tool to bend God’s mind, to do what he doesn’t want to do, and what you want him to do it for you. The mentality of Chain prayer assumes that prayer made by two three people isn’t that affective compared to prayer made by entire congregation, persistently for three four days.

          Is it a political show, where one person’s petition doesn’t work, and where thousands gather before king or political leader’s house demanding there needs, unwilling to depart from the gates of governer’s home, unless he yields to their request ?

          And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard BECAUSE OF THEIR MANY WORDS. Matt 6:7 .

          And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, HE HEARETH us: . I John 5:14.

        5. I do not know deny you. What was the use of Jesus to pray whole night? To get strength to perform the next day. When we involve in a task, time just runs. Long prayers are for humbling oneself and supplicating for the nation and the people. Bible encourages it. Watch and Pray. Pray without ceasing. Can’t you tarry an hour?

          I’m not defending, but logically analysing that long prayer like pharisee is incorrect. But prayer like Jesus pouring sweat like blood is good. One can do only by grace and not with his own.

        6. Bahubali, the Chain prayer is a practice whereby many people, one after the other, say a certain prayer. It is not the case of just one believer praying to God him/herself without ceasing; it’s not like the case of the certain widow and the unjust judge at all.
          Jesus is teaching us here that every Christian ought to [him/herself] always pray to God, and not to faint, Luke 18:1.

          God wants his children, called saints in Christ, to be overcomers by faith and to be strong in the Lord. To fear God and to trust in Jesus and not to put our trust in any other – in this instance, not to trust in TPM prayer chain.

          The Chain prayer is likened to a chain. A chain clinks and clanks as it moves along, over and over, rattling the same sounds by the many people in that chain, relying on the force of the chain and its many links to persuade God to action.

          Is God deaf that He doesn’t hear the cry of His own elect?
          Can He not hear your prayer without the force of many rattling chains one after the other?
          Does God not know and care about His own dearly blood-bought child?
          Does not the child of God trust that Jesus will both hear and answer his/her own prayer of faith according to God’s will?

          The Chain prayer is a formula and a method to get God’s attention by much publicity. The chain is really the means used to get the desired result.

          Bahubali, prayer does not bring the victory. It is faith in Jesus that gives the victory.
          “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” 1 John 5:4
          Prayer is supplication To God.
          “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” 1 John 5:15

          Jesus tells us how to pray in the Bible. Look at the scriptures given in red type in the article.

          Don’t give up the blessedness of waiting on God when you pray yourself to Him. Let your personal relationship with God grow and mature as you hold fast in faith to Jesus our precious High Priest and Saviour.
          Here is a beautiful promise for you –

          Hebrews 4:15-16 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
          Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

          God bless you.

        7. Bahubali, one must take heed to the spirit that is in the men who lead and preach in this organisation. The control in this organisation is verily seen by your words #Here a point is given and all pray with one accord, followed by another point to pray#.
          God stopped me from attending its services…the system of TPM is doomed. Sooner or later, God knows, But please know this, that God knows those that are His, and God rescues His people from perishing.
          Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
          In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
          God bless you.

        8. True. If God said not to pray with this or that group or directs you to do this or that, discern and accordingly. No one can go against God’s leading. May God be blessed.

          I don’t know why you have to blame when someone prays for various issues. It’s good. I praise and thank God for every friends, though I can finish in 5 seconds saying bless all my friends. It’s between you and God relationship. Why to interfere into that.

          The chain prayer is something similar is what I’ve noticed. They pray for nations, peace, poverty, salvation, etc.

        9. Bahubali, first you say #I was in one of the chain for a special gathering#
          Then you say #Here a point is given and all pray with one accord,followed by another point to pray#
          Then you say #The chain prayer is something similar is what I’ve noticed#
          Bahubali, where does the Bible say that prayer chain is how to pray to God?

          What God plainly tells us is that though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (physical) but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds: Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. 2 Cor 10:3-6

          We have to get rid of those methods which man creates like the chain prayer and depend on God’s Spirit, the mighty name of Jesus, the scriptures of God’s word, the power of the blood of Jesus coupled with the faith that God has given to us.
          Listen to Jesus’ and His disciples’ words on prayer and do what they say. Cast off the chains of TPM chain prayer. Be led by the Spirit.
          Read Ephesians 6:18.

  7. Can we add a forum like please. Very difficult to search and type in that thread. I want to share my experience but feel inappropriate to share in this post of prayer chain. Creating forum can help.

    I have seen a minister pinching and slapping in fun and the mother of 1 year child in tears. Bunch of believers with the minister are laughing at the minister’s way of handling the baby. Even my husband helpless was smiling. My heart broke. When my baby cried a loud, he slapped more and then gave to me. I rushed honey in tears.

    Why they do this?

    Next week I saw another baby of a wealthy family. The minister didn’t even take the baby in hand. With all reverence and smile was cuddling with baby while the baby was in mother’s hand.

    What’s the intention?

    2. Dear sneha, This is EXACTLY what I am trying to say. I have been going to the TPM church for 15years and I always used to see that the children of the rich were given royal treatment while the children of the poor were always criticized for bad behavior. If the same bad behavior was displayed by a rich believer’s child it was adored upon and cuddled. I’d a poor child cried or was mischievous the child was called unruly and the mother was called unfit to control the child !!!! Every time I saw this my blood would boil !!!! This happened 15 years ago and is still happening today !!!! ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE!!!! I understand what you are trying to say. PLEASE share all your experiences.

      1. Yes Priya. I’m raising my confidence to be bold to the truth God is giving and to stand for it. Let come what may. If ministers are falling from their preach, it’s woe to them. I pray they don’t go to perdition.

        Another incident is partiality or favouritism. I hate it. My husband’s family were very quarrelsome people. His parents always fight. The whole congregation and the centre are aware of their rudeness. I happend to be a scapegoat and was wedded to that family. I’m not blaming my marriage as we are happy family,but the minister who proposed us the family knowing their standards, gave alliance to us. My father still doesn’t like such man of God. He is none other than our late pas selvam. Again, I’m not raising anything to the leading, but knowing all these he should speak and tell another family and then share. He never did. At last out of sudden my father in law died in road accident. His one son is in ministry. The amount of favouritism they showed as awkward. The family who was once rejected by all due to ill behaviour of fights, made his funeral in all riches by bringing the body to faithome and all workers testifying about his goodness. I was shocked. I never gave testimony as I didn’t wanted to be hypocritical. His own son from ministry was shocked to see the crowd for a quarrelled parents. The only reason they gave was, due to his son in ministry, we honoured him. Is this not an absurd balance? Does it not ring the bell that if a person gives huge money, he will be honoured?

        I hate favouritism and teach my children never to go near such attitudes. Be one among the believers who are saints. Have a distance with the ministers who are priests separated. Do not move with them with any carnal relationship like uncle, aunt, granny, etc. They are consecrated let us treat them as consecrated. This way we grow a healthy relation and those weak minister also take the right shape at later stage.

    1. Yes, Prince, your warning is correct and no one should speak against the children of God.

      This site is exposing a cult which pretends to be God’s by teaching false doctrines and abusing poor and gullible souls.

      Any honourable true christian should join in exposing this cult. Are you a christian or a TPM cult member?

  8. Admin,

    I admire your zeal and courage and resolve to highlight the truth and unmask traditional practices that are unbiblical.

    Please keep up the good work. Do not worry even if many adherents to TPM oppose… they will soon be able to understand… We were all brainwashed fellows once.

    Praying that God might bless His good work and glorify His name through this effort.
