SPKM ORU SINGERS SONG Turn it around
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS That’s right. No matter what it looks like, no matter what the devil is throwing at you, God, my Heavenly Father, can turn things around in your life. And I want to welcome you to Richard Roberts Live, coming to you from Oral Roberts University, the City of Faith, the Miracle Healing Outreach Center right here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This is a miracle program designed to help you get your needs met.
I was studying my Bible last night and the Word of God told a tremendous SR01 story about how Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” They got into a boat. They went out there on the waters of that sea of Galilee, when suddenly a storm began to stir up. And Jesus had gone to sleep. And the disciples did not say what Jesus said. They didn’t say, “Let us go over.” They said, “We’re perishing.” They said, “We’re going to drown.” They said, “We’re going to die.” And they went and woke Jesus up and said, “Jesus, don’t You even care that we’re about to perish in this great windstorm?” You see, they forgot the words of Jesus, when Jesus said, “We’re going over to the other side.” They said, “We’re going under.”
Jesus stood up and there in that ship He rebuked the winds and rebuked the waves and He hushed the sea to sleep. And those disciples looked at Him and said, “What matter, what matter of man, what manner of man is this?” Jesus turned and said to them, “Where is your faith?” And that’s the question that Jesus is asking you and me today, when are you and I going to stand tall and use the faith that God has given us to go over and not under. While the devil’s roar is going in your life, God is saying to you, let us go over, let us not go under. And the ORU Orchestra and I want to bring this song to life of going over, “Let Us Go Over To The Other Side.” Hallelujah. SONG Let us go over to the other side I’m going over to the other side. Stay tuned for this message coming up just for you. AD01 HEALING OUTREACH CENTER SPOT
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS Welcome back. If you just joined us, you’re watching Richard Roberts Live, coming to you from the campus of Oral Roberts University, the City of Faith and the Miracle Healing Outreach Center. As you can see, we have begun construction on phase two. And for your part in helping us with one square foot or however many square feet God lays on your heart to sow into this ministry, for your part in that we want to send you this magnificent ROBERTS FAMILY GUIDE TO MIRACLES FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. It’s beautifully bound in leather. It’s written by Oral, Evelyn, Richard and Lindsay Roberts, four authors in one book.
There you’re looking at a picture of it now. And the way you get your copy is, not in any store because it’s not for sale. You can’t buy it anywhere in America. The only way you can get it is by helping us as we begin the construction now on phase two of the Healing Outreach center. We’ve been able to get the price of the construction down because we own the land and because we are doing the building ourselves. We’ve got the construction cost down to $40 a square foot. Now that’s for the building itself. The Journey in the Bible will come in after the building, of course, is built. But we need your help. And it’s a joy to give you an opportunity to sow a seed of your faith of $40 for one square foot of that magnificent phase two. And, incidentally, phase two will be five times as large as phase one.
And it will carry you throughout the rest of the Old Testament, all the way up to the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. And I’ll be sharing more about that later. But I want you to have an opportunity to get your copy in leather of the ROBERTS FAMILY GUIDE TO MIRACLES FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. Praise God for it. Sow a seed. Write me, Richard Roberts, Tulsa, Oklahoma. Or if you live in Canada, Richard Roberts, Toronto, Ontario. Or you can pick up the telephone and call the Abundant Life Prayer Group at 918-495-7777 and say, I want to sow a seed to help you build that Healing Outreach Center, phase two. And we will send the ROBERTS FAMILY GUIDE TO MIRACLES FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE by Oral, Evelyn, Richard and Lindsay Roberts immediately to you in the mail. I believe it will be a blessing. Cheryl Prewitt Salem is here and is going to minister in song in a moment. But, Cheryl, before I turn to you, I want to bring you a great report, an ulcer healing in Tucson, Arizona, just got word of that. From Gilmer, Texas, a shoulder healed when we prayed on the program. From Tacoma, Washington, another shoulder problem, “for weeks, but I’ve been set free.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS And let’s just reach out our hands as an extension of the hands of Jesus. Everybody here in the studio just hold your two hands out in front of you. And you as you watch this proram, just, just put your hands out like this. You say, well, why would you ask me to do that? Just as a point of contact. A point of contact is something you do, Arlie, and when you do it, you release your faith. And as I reach out my hands to you as a point of contact, I also stretch out the prayer of faith. And I come against the struggle in your life. I pray for you today. For those of you who have never received Jesus as your Savior, I pray right now that you’d pray this prayer out loud with me, PRRR as everybody here prays this prayer out loud with me.
O Lord, be merciful to me a sinner. Come into my heart. Save me. Forgive me. I repent of my sins. I turn my back on the devil. And I receive Jesus Christ. Friend, I pray for you to be healed in your body. I speak to the sickness and the disease. I command it, in the name of Jesus, to come out of your body. And I agree with you for that thing to happen. And I won’t change my mind. I won’t come out of agreement with you until the healing comes. I pray for God to multiply the seed that you sow. Yes, those of you who are sowing seeds into this ministry this month and every month, I thank you for it.
But more than that, I pray for God to multiply it back to you in the way you need it the most. I particularly want to pray for those of you who are on alcohol or on drugs today. In the name of Jesus, you need deliverance. And I pray for you to be healed today. I want to remind you, we have the Set-Free Clinic over at the City of Faith. It’s a drug and alcohol abuse center. Hundreds and thousands of people are coming to get help. We can help you through the good work of those doctors and the prayer partners and the nurses there in that alcohol and drug unit. All you have to do is call us, let us know that you need to come.
And there’s a way. God has a way for you to get to Tulsa. And we pray for you. We pray. There’s a number on your screen right now. It’s an 800 number. It’s a free call for the Set-Free Clinic, 1-800-443-3777. Write that number down if you have someone in your family who is on drugs or alcohol and needs a deliverance. I believe we can help you. Arlie, thank you for being our guest today. Until we see you tomorrow, take these words with you all day long, no matter what it looks like, God can turn it around for you.

SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS Well, it’s never ending in your family too.
SPLR LINDSAY ROBERTS That’s exactly right. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. That’s what you say with your children.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS So we need your help. Will you pray during this anniversary month, this healing ministry of 40 years, will you pray about being a part of this special project this summer? We’ve got to do this work. And there may be someone watching who can say, yes, I’ll help you repair an entire roof. There may be someone watching who could say, yes, I’ll take that $27,000 stadium roof on that baseball stadium because I believe in your ministry of reaching people in the world of athletics. See, we’re in athletics to be a witness for Jesus. We want to see the world of athletics come to the feet of Jesus. We’re in baseball, we’re in basketball, we’re in tennis, we’re in volleyball. We’ve got swimming, cross-country, track. All the ORU teams are strong. We’re strong in athletics because we want to be a witness to the athletic world and see those people brought to the feet of Jesus Christ.
And we believe in that and we need your help. And of course we’re strong in academics. We’re a three-star university, rated by the New York Times. And, you know, if the New York Times said it, of course it has to be right. And we need your help. Will you pray about sowing a special seed this month? And for everybody who will sow a minimum seed of $100, I’m going to send you this magnificent motion picture, Venture Into Faith.
And all you have to do to receive it is to let me know you want it. Just call the Abundant Life Prayer Group, 918-495-7777. Put a seed on your credit card. Or write and say, yes, I want that video and, yes, I want to help you with your project this summer. We need your help. Will you help us? Will you help us restore ORU and get it ready again for the students when they get here in the fall? Will you help us.
SPKM ARLIE WHITLOW Yes, I believe they will.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS Our address is, Richard Roberts, Tulsa, Oklahoma. If you live in Canada, Richard Roberts, Toronto, Ontario. Or call the Abundant Life Prayer Group and put a seed on your Master Card, your Visa, your Discover, your American Express, whatever card you want to use. And be sure and ask for Venture Into Faith. If you sow a $100 seed, minimum gift of $100 seed, I want you to receive this magnificent motion picture. And I’ll only be offering this just this month, Lindsay.
SPLR LINDSAY ROBERTS You know, honey as Arlie was talking about being in Washington, recently Cheryl and I were in Washington, D.C. at the Women in Leadership Conference, and as we were there we were able to take a IL02 tour of the, really the highlights of Washington. And Cheryl and I got out of our car and we walked up to where the statue of Abraham Lincoln was sitting. And when you walk up all those stairs, by the time you get up there you think you’re going to faint anyway. And you get to the top and there was Abraham Lincoln.
And he is so massive, so enormous when you see it. And Cheryl looked at that and she said “Do you see how big that is?” And I said, “Yes.” I could see her mind clicking. She said, “You know, Jesus said He’s got the whole world in His hands.” And we saw how massive the hands of Abraham Lincoln on a statue looked. And she said, “Can you imagine Jesus stretching out His hands when God said, He’s got the whole world in His hand,” like the song you teach your children, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hand.” And I want to say something to you today, just being, hearing of Washington reminded me of this, whatever you need today, no matter how big your need is, if God can hold us in the palm of His hand, He can take care of your needs today.

SPLR LINDSAY ROBERTS This morning I was getting ready backstage and I was putting on some lipstick. And I opened the tube of lipstick and I turned it up looked normal. But when I saw the lipstick, there may be a secret when I get home.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS Well, when you’re two you eat lipstick.
SPLR LINDSAY ROBERTS She loves lipstick.
SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS “Lindsay, Lindsay told of the struggle that she went through when somebody said some awful things to her and how God brought her through to victory. I have had a similar experience in my life. Lindsay, your testimony helped me very, very much.
