SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS You can’t fail with our heavenly Father on your side. Welcome to you from Richard Roberts Live coming to you from the campus of Oral Roberts University, the City of Faith, the miracle Healing Outreach Center, and I have just recently returned from Korea. Later on in this program I’m going to be sharing with you in detail and then I have other things to show you later on during the week. So don’t change the channel. Stay tuned right where you are and expect a miracle today.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS And here is the certificate of authenticity, “Oral Roberts Venture Into Faith.” Here it is. This certifies that this is an authentic…. now there’s a difference in nonauthentic, Lindsay… an authentic release of the film, “Venture Into Faith,” that first premiered in 1952. This is strictly a limited edition in its original color and those kind of prints are hard to come by. Having never before been released as a home video presentation, it is now being honored as a collector’s item in commemoration of the 40th year anniversary of the Oral Roberts Ministry, dated, then numbered and personally signed by Oral Roberts. And if you would like to have your copy, then pick up your telephone right now and call 1-918-495-…. I haven’t forgotten the Abundant Life prayer group prayer partners since I’ve been in Korea….495-7777. Put a seed-faith gift of $100 on your Mastercard, your Visa, or your American Express or whatever card you want to send, and then also last week or the week before last when we first started this offer for this month we also decided that we would allow people to send certified checks or bank checks or whatever it is…. you know what I’m talking about, Lindsay.
SPLR LINDSAY ROBERTS Cashier’s checks.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS Cashier’s checks….that’s what I was meaning. This is for a special project in our anniversary month, our 40th anniversary celebration which begins…. or which began, I should say, the first of this month. This is really something special and there isa project that goes along with this and that is restoration work at ORU this summer while the students are all over America and around the world preaching, singing, witnessing, and in businesses, on jobs, doing all kinds of things with missions teams all around the world. We have to do some special restoration work here at ORU and we need to do that kind of restoration work during the summer when the students are gone. We’ve already begun to order the equipment and the materials and things like that. Now I need to pay for that stuff. Now all of this, of course, needs to come in above and beyond our regular needs of operating ORU, the City of Faith, and everything. We also have ongoing needs at the university during the summertime too and, of course, one of the ongoing needs is to do some restoration work on the roofs, some parking lots, and classrooms, and things of that nature. And we are still…. you have to keep things up. You have to maintain things.
SPLR LINDSAY ROBERTS Last year we did the dormitories.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS Last year we redid the dormitories and now we’re doing some exterior work. Have we got…. I haven’t heard from anybody… did we get some paint last week? When I left for Korea, we needed 1,500 gallons of white paint and off-white paint and I haven’t had any report. Can anybody tell me? Did we get any paint? Can anybody give me some word? I don’t know. I just got home from Korea this weekend and I don’t know.
SPLR LINDSAY ROBERTS Your body is here but half of you was left there.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS Well, I’ll tell you what Richard, we ordered paint last week.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS Don, if somebody would like to have you all you have to do is just call the Abundant Life Prayer Group — we’ll get the information to you. (Amen) You know, the Bible says, Don, if we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and I want to tell you if you are sincere when you prayed with Don just a minute ago, then that thing in your life can be in the past. Your life can be totally transformed. And when you pick up your phone and call the Abundant Life Prayer Group — if you feel like you need further prayer we will pray with you again. We’re concerned, we care. Before our program closes I want to offer you a copy of this book
– YOU CAN BE FREE. Nearly 100,000 people have written and asked for this book. This book can help you. It’s a survival manual. Not just for you but for your entire family. It’s serious business with us. We need the healing power of God. Here is a man — he’s already given you his testimony, and what a powerful testimony it is. But it doesn’t just stop with a testimony, he know is doing something with his life. He has already won 15,000 young people to Jesus Christ through his witness. And he is going to win thousands, and thousands and hundreds of thousands more while he is on this earth. And I’ve got this word to say to you — God cares about you. He loves you. He is concerned about what you are going through. And he wants to bring a miracle into your life. Will you receive him today? Will you receive his miracle? Will you receive his power?

Father, I take authority over this sickness. I take authority over the disease. In Jesus’ name I stand against it. And my brother, my sister, young person, in Jesus’ name I pray for you to be healed. There is an elbow that is being healed. My — the power of God is present to heal today. That is what the Bible says. “The power of God was present to heal.” And God’s power hasn’t changed. He’s got just as much healing power now as he had then. He said, “I am the Lord, I change not.” And his Son Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Yes, yes. Okay. Somebody is getting a healing on your scalp. The little growth and thing on the scalp is being healed right now. You say, “Well, that’s kind of crazy.” Well, I’m only giving you what God has given me.” And I’ll deliver his word, and I will be unashamed. I am not ashamed of delivering God’s word to you. Rise up on the inside. Take new hope. You say, “Well, I am at the very end.” Well, I’m praying a “very end” Holy Ghost prayer for you. And I expect a miracle in your life. I rebuke that sin in your life. That thing that you have been trying to discard. God can turn it around in your life. You that are on drugs and alcohol — you are going to hear a testimony in a few minutes from a man who has been to hell and back. It’s going to be a blessing in your life. And then we are going to have a prayer for you as a drug addict, for you as an alcoholic, for you who have been in prison. You’re going to hear a testimony that is going to help turn your life around. In fact, you’d better call somebody on the phone right now and say — you’re going to hear something on Richard Roberts program today that is going to make a difference in your life. Don Stanley will be here in a minute to share a magnificent testimony, one of the best testimonies you will ever hear in your life. It will be a blessing to you. And I speak to that fear. SR01 The Bible says, “God has not given you the spirit of fear, but of power, of love, and of a sound mind.” ( RR_2_Timothy_01:07 ) I rebuke SU01 that fear. That fear is not from God. Now I am not talking about a normal fear — I’m not talking about a healthy respect, like when you walk across the street you look both ways for a car. I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about the kind of fear that comes to torment you. That kind of fear is not of God. And I rebuke that thing in your life. And I pray for you to take new strength and new courage. And for you to say — I’m not going to be afraid of this tormenting thing anymore. And you and I right now join together and take authority over it in the name of Jesus.
I particularly want to pray for your family and your marriage. I really feel led of God to do that today. Your whole situation may be about to dissolve. PRRR In Jesus’ name, I pray for God to wrap his arms around you and your wife, around you and your husband, around you and your children, around you and your parents — and to knit you back together. I am praying and believing for it to happen. And I pray it not in my name, but I pray it in Jesus’ name. And when I pray, I expect something to happen. Amen and amen. (APPLAUSE) Hallelujah. Somebody else is getting a healing. You who have had the — my, the power of God is strong today. There is somebody who has a big knot on your right knee. Right on the kneecap, the knot is disappearing. If you are receiving a healing step to your phone, call the Abundant Life Prayer Group. Let me know who you are. 918, that’s the area code, 495-7777. It’s an easy number to remember. 918 495-7777. I was in someone’s home the other day and I saw the Abundant Life Prayer Group phone number on their refrigerator. And I said, “Why did you put it on your refrigerator?” And they said, “Just so I would remember it and see it there. When I have a need — as I am walking to the kitchen and I see that phone number — I remember that it is there
