Healed of Bone Cancer
I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma—a form of bone cancer. I tried chemotherapy and radiation, but my body rejected every bit of the treatment. My oncologist said I had about two months to live and told me to plan my funeral. During my treatments, I spent most of my time in the hospital. That’s when I came across your program. I had never heard of The Place for Miracles before, but I’m glad I discovered it.
I watched the program every night at midnight—it was a divine appointment for me. Listening to Richard and Lindsay was so encouraging. Tuning in to The Place for Miracles truly helped me, and God healed me of bone cancer in just seven short months. I have been declared cancer-free! I feel alive for the first time in my life. I am a walking, talking miracle!

Girl’s Speech Is Miraculously Restored
Thank you very much for the letters, magazines, prayer cloths, and anointing oil that you provide. I used them to pray for a 9-year-old girl who was unable talk for a year. The girl’s parents took her to three different hospitals and several health centers, but no one could help.
By a miracle, they came to my workplace, where I spoke with them and learned about the girl’s history of sickness. I then shared the Word of God with them, and prayed for the girl using the prayer cloth from your ministry. I told the parents I believed their daughter would be all right and her speech would be restored. Soon, I received a call from the family. The child’s speech has been restored. God is good! May God bless you and your ministry.

God Gave Us Abundantly More Than We Asked For
My husband had to take early retirement, but his retirement payout wasn’t due to come to us for several months. As a result, we had no income for months. We called Richard Roberts and the Abundant Life Prayer Group to agree in prayer, both for income and for a new home. We also pledged a Seed-Faith gift of $100 against our need. The very day we sent the pledge in, we received my husband’s retirement payout in the mail—four months earlier than expected. And that same week, we found the kind of house we had prayed for. It has everything we asked for, plus much more!

Prayer Cloth a Perfect Fix-It
A tractor that I wanted to sell started to have some problems. Since I had a prayer cloth from your ministry, I decided to put it in the tractor’s seat cushion and believe God for help. Within days, I discovered how to fix the problem inexpensively.
Then my computer started acting up, so I took the prayer cloth and put it on the computer. Now the computer is working too. Thank You, God!

Saved While Watching TV
While watching clips from your ministry’s El Salvador crusade, I saw Richard praying for a man to receive Christ. The man was crying. At that point, Richard gave a word of knowledge that someone watching by television was crying also, and Richard Roberts prayed for that person to be saved.
That person was me! I called the Abundant Life Prayer Group immediately, and I prayed with a prayer partner to give my life to Jesus Christ. I am still crying and rejoicing over this miracle.

Healed of Lower Back Pain
I had been having pain in my lower back for two months. Sometimes, it was so bad that I could not walk. One night, I was watching Richard Roberts on The Place for Miracles, and he had a word of knowledge that God was healing a viewer with lower back pain.
I said, “Jesus, that’s for me!” So when Richard said, “Turn your back to the TV,” I did it. I immediately experienced a warm feeling in my back, and I was able to bend down and stand up. The pain went away, and it has not come back. Praise God!

A wave of fatigue hit me early one evening, so I decided to lie down for a quick nap. I woke up the next afternoon, still groggy, but now disoriented and hallucinating, too!
Thankfully, my daughter called just then. When I told her I couldn’t get up, she became alarmed. It didn’t take long for her to realize I wasn’t speaking rationally, so she called 911 and rushed over to my house.
I was taken to the hospital, where I continued to drift in and out of consciousness. Doctors ran an MRI and discovered a cancerous mass on my brain! Immediately I went into surgery to remove the mass. Afterward, we learned I’d be paralyzed on my left side because of the location of the mass. However, I went home four days after the surgery with only a slight weakness on that side.
As I was recovering, I would often fall asleep to the sound of the TV. One night I was jolted awake suddenly by the voice of Richard Roberts on The Hour of Healing. I heard him say, “Be healed of that tumor in Jesus’ name…this very day!” I sat straight up and said, “All right Lord, I believe You,” and claimed that word for myself.
I called the Abundant Life Prayer Group to agree with me in prayer, and I requested a prayer cloth. I wore that prayer cloth night and day as a point of con¬tact to release my faith. The chemotherapy was aggressive, but I held on to the healing I knew God had planned for me.
Since then I’ve been back to my doctor, and his very words were, “It’s a miracle; the cancer is completely gone!” I’ve never had any paralysis or loss of brain function. Praise God!
“That Looks Like a Brand New Ankle!”
On Thanksgiving Day—between preparations for a big family dinner and planning a move—I slipped on some water on my front porch.
The crushing fall left my hip, knee, ankle, and five toes broken. My ankle was so badly damaged that it looked like mush on the X-rays. The doctor put me in a cast and said he was sure I’d need surgery once the cast was removed. I lived every day in excruciating pain.
One day I turned on The Hour of Healing for some encouragement and heard Richard Roberts give a word of knowledge about God healing someone with hip problems. I received that word and immediately felt what seemed like a big “bounce” of electricity run through my body. Instantly, the hip pain was gone!
I set down my crutches and began to walk. I had no pain! I called the Abundant Life Prayer Group with my praise report and told them I could even wiggle my toes again.
When I returned to the doctor for new X-rays, he said, “That looks like a brand new ankle.” I’m no longer wearing a cast or using crutches, and no surgery is needed!
“Healing is what God does…and He does it well!”
A spot about as big as my thumbnail appeared on my chin that simply wouldn’t go away. My doctor told me it was skin cancer and immediately scheduled me for surgery.
I hoped I’d have just a small scar from the surgery, but it took a five-inch incision to make sure all the can¬cer was removed. Once surgery was over, I thought I’d been through the worst of it. Instead, a lump devel¬oped, and my chin became black and swollen.
Concerned, I went back to the doctor to see why my chin wasn’t healing. He said he would have to go back in to clean out the wound. I decided right then to call the Abundant Life Prayer Group to pray for a miracle.
I’m here to say I received my miracle! The lump, the blackness, and the soreness all disappeared. I re¬turned to my doctor for a follow-up appointment, and he declared it healed.
All that’s left to remind me of what God has done is a small indentation on my chin. I apologized to God for being so surprised at my healing, and I told Him, “This is what You do, Lord, and You do it well!”
My diagnosis was grim: non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer. I’d already beaten cancer once in 1998. At that time, the doctor told me that even with chemo¬therapy, I had only five years to live—at most!
However, when word came that the cancer was back, I made the decision to fight it once again. My wife called the Abundant Life Prayer Group to ask them to join us in faith. We were convinced this was just an attack of the enemy to distract us from the call God had on our lives. I began chemotherapy again, this time believing the report of the Lord that I would be healed.
After the third round of medication, I was scheduled for a PET scan to see exactly what I was up against. Much to the doctor’s surprise—and my joy—the cancer was nearly gone. Hallelujah, God had another plan!
Throughout the whole process, God kept me in per¬fect peace. All along, I knew that I was healed, and I was never sick or even lost my hair. Today I’m happy to report that the test results show I’m totally cancer-free!
God Saved My Leg!
Charcot’s joint—a destructive bone disorder—was damaging the circulation in my leg and foot. I’d been in the hospital three times, and had seen ten different surgeons. It had gotten so bad that the doctor told me I’d have to have my leg amputated!
I called the Abundant Life Prayer Group to pray for my healing. I also began listening to Richard and Lindsay’s CD, He Sent His Word and Healed Them, every night, meditating on the Scriptures they read. Through that difficult time, I felt the Holy Spirit say to me, “Joe, it’s going to be alright.”
I returned to the doctor who’d scheduled the sur¬gery, and he said, “Your circulation is the best we’ve seen in months and months. We don’t have to ampu¬tate.” Right there in the office, I shouted, “Praise the Lord!” Now I testify about what God has done for me every chance I get.
