November Letter

Dear Partner,

As you move forward with God in every area of your life, I want to help you COVER ALL THE BASES and root out the work of the enemy anywhere he has been trying to hold you and your loved ones back. And I believe the Lord has shown me exactly what you and I need to do to get in position to receive an overflow of supernatural, God-given breakthroughs throughout the rest of this year and as we move into 2015.

As you read this letter right now, I believe this is a divine appointment between you and what the Holy Spirit desires to do in your life… This is a meeting between what is and what CAN BE when you act in FAITH, believing God for His miracles.

Before we go any further, let’s settle two issues right here and now… First, there is NOTHING going on in your life right now that God can’t fix or make better. No sickness, no debt, no fear, no doubt—NOTHING is bigger than the God you serve and what He can do in your life as you reach out to Him in faith believing…

Second, because you are His child, God has MUCH MORE FOR YOU than an “every-once-in-a-while” blessing…

Partner, this is so important… I want you to see that God has a CONTINUOUS FLOW of HIS BLESSINGS for YOU… As His child, YOU are a joint heir with Jesus to all the riches that He possesses… Through His shed blood and your faith in Him as Lord and Savior, you have a position that allows you to MOVE FORWARD into supernatural breakthroughs and turnarounds in every area of your life… All you have to do is STEP INTO IT!

To help you take a step of faith FORWARD into the victories I believe God has for you, I have a packet of anointing oil for you as a point of contact between you, me, and our Heavenly Father for the purpose of helping you ACT on your faith in God and what He can do in your life as you move forward in Him. (See PS below for more details on how to request your packet of anointing oil.)

I’m sending you this oil for a special purpose, so when you receive it,
PLEASE DO NOT OPEN IT!

Let me explain what I am asking you to do, and why…

A few years ago, the Lord placed it on my heart to hold a blended anointing oil service on The Place for Miracles. I asked the partners and friends of this ministry to join their faith together in prayer and agree for miracles. We used this anointing oil as a point of contact to act on our faith that God would answer our prayers… People sent their packet of oil back, Lindsay and I prayed over it, and we sent everyone who participated a portion of this blended oil.

Since then, we have received tremendous reports from people who received miracle breakthroughs after they participated in the blended oil service. And I believe that right now, as we prepare to close 2014 and enter the new year, 2015, you and I need to set aside a special time of prayer for God to MOVE YOU FORWARD in every area, including the places in your life where you may feel stuck or need a breakthrough of your own… GOD has more for you than you may realize…Now is the time to get in position to RECEIVE everything He has for you!

When you have the packet of anointing oil, I want you to hold it in your hand and reach out in faith to God as you complete the rest of this letter—Please DON’T OPEN THE OIL. (See PS below to request your oil packet.)

As you hold the packet of oil in your hand, allow the Holy Spirit to create a picture in your mind… Allow Him to build your faith as you think about the widow who ACTED on her faith in what the prophet Elijah told her when her flour and oil were about to run out… Elijah said to her, “Do not fear… Make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me; and afterward make some for yourself and your son. For thus says the Lord… ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry…’” (1 Kings 17:13–14).

Do you see the jar of oil? Are you seeing that every time the widow dipped in and took some out to cook with, a miracle took place and God replaced it? This story was not recorded in the Bible just for the sake of the story. It was recorded so that EVERY READER, including YOU, could learn a powerful truth that is VITAL to YOUR FAITH to RECEIVE from the Lord…

Please read the following very carefully…
I believe this will help you receive your breakthrough!

The widow overcame her DOUBT… To her, Elijah was a stranger telling her to fix him a meal. Yes, the man was a prophet. However, there is no record that the widow knew about his ministry or the miracles that God did through him. She just saw a man telling her to use what she believed was the last of what she had to prepare him a meal. Yet she decided to ACT in FAITH

The widow also overcame her FEAR… Remember, she believed that she and her son would starve to death after she used up the last of the flour and oil to prepare the prophet’s meal. The choice was hers. She came into agreement with her inner faith that there had to be more than dying of starvation… She made a personal decision to do as the man of God had requested…

Partner, I’m asking you to GO BEYOND what you see in the natural… Don’t allow yourself to be dominated by the way your circumstances appear to be… MOVE out of doubt and fear… MOVE FORWARD and RECEIVE what the Lord has for you…

The natural thing to do when you are facing a crisis is to hold on to what you have. The widow could have done the natural thing and held onto the last handful of meal and bit of oil for herself and her son. They would have eaten one last meal together…and then they would have died!

But there is nothing natural about the SUPERNATURAL GOD we serve. He does the IMPOSSIBLE…the MIRACULOUS…as He brings about your breakthrough! But you must COOPERATE with Him by acting on your faith in Him… You have to DO something… You have to MOVE…

Now catch this… I want you to MAKE a MOVE to get in position and stay in position to RECEIVE from God

SO… I want you to look at the packet of oil you are holding in your hand (see PS below if you haven’t received your oil)… And I want you to say these words out loud: “I am MOVING FORWARD with God in every area of my life, starting right now… DOUBT, you have NO PLACE in my walk with God… FEAR, you have held me back long enough… I curse you, spirit of fear, in the name of Jesus. There is NO place for you in the lifestyle of giving and receiving and miracle living that God has for me.”

THIS IS YOUR TIME to plant the seeds that will grow into harvests for you in 2015 and beyond… It’s time to do something that may feel uncomfortable in the natural, so you can release a POWERFUL principle in the realm of the SUPERNATURAL.

Look at the packet of oil and speak these words out loud… “Lord, as Your child, I ask You to sanctify this oil. I call this oil Holy Oil… And Lord, as I release this oil by returning it to Richard for the Blended Anointing Oil Service, I’m asking you to use this holy oil as a symbol of my faith to move forward into a continuous flow of blessings in my life just as you did for the widow. In the name of Jesus, Amen.”

Now that you have prayed in faith, I want you to click this link and send me your prayer requests. This is where you overcome doubt, and defeat any fear that has tried to dominate your thinking… I challenge you to be specific as you tell me your prayer requests for MOVING FORWARD as we close out 2014 and enter the new year. As you share your heart with me, remember that when you get specific with God, He gets specific with you… I mean, He sends you the specific answers you need for YOUR LIFE!

As you sow your seed, I challenge you to get very specific with God as you give to Him and move forward to receive everything He wants to get to you. All God is looking for is your seed, sown in faith believing… The Bible is very clear about the miracle power of a lifestyle of giving and receiving… But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully (2 Corinthians 9:6).

God has all the answers you need! He owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and all the gold and silver in the earth… He has answers for your specific situation. So don’t let doubt, fear, or anything else prevent you from reaching out in faith to receive the harvest God has for you! CHOOSE to sow your seed, and CHOOSE to stand in faith until you RECEIVE your breakthrough

So, send your prayer requests to me, along with your seed-faith gift and the packet of Anointing Oil over which you have prayed and God has sanctified as holy. When I receive your prayer requests, I’ll use the oil to anoint them as we tap into God’s power to MOVE YOU FORWARD in every area of your life.

NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT! I want YOU to be included in our Miraculous Breakthrough Anointing Service on The Place for Miracles on Thursday, December 18 (check your local listings or watch it online). I believe God will use this miracle service to lift you to a new level of understanding of His plan for you as you MOVE FORWARD in Him in 2015 and beyond.

When I receive your packet of Anointing Oil, it will be blended with the Anointing Oil we receive from praying partners and friends of this ministry from around the world. The blending of the oil will be a symbol of ALL OF US coming together in AGREEMENT, praying one for another…

Think about it… Believers you have never met, coming into agreement with you for your breakthrough as you come into agreement with them for the breakthrough they need from God. Think about the POWER we will be releasing into each of our lives as we come into agreement in this great Anointing Service on Thursday, December 18.

But that’s not all… When you return your packet of Anointing Oil, I’m going to take the blended oil from our Anointing Service and send you a personal vial of oil that has been prayed over by ALL OF US coming together in agreement for the miracle God has for each of us. Think about it… A believer in another part of the world is standing in AGREEMENT with YOU… Believers all around the world are standing with you and me as God releases His flow of blessings into YOUR life.

I have done my best as a faithful steward to share what God has placed on my heart. The choice right now is yours. I challenge you to say, without reservation, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” I pray the Holy Spirit has made this letter come alive to your heart, and that faith is rising in you as He reveals to you those areas in which He desires to bless you beyond anything you can imagine.

I look forward to hearing from you… I look forward to God’s continuous flow being released into every minute of your life as we move forward into the exciting breakthrough potential that waits for you and me as we complete 2014 and enter the new year!

Your partner for miracles,

Richard

Mid-October Letter

Dear Partner,

Greetings in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Son of the living God. I’m so glad to have this opportunity to write to you and to all of my other friends and partners around the world with a powerful Word from the Lord…

Last week I was preaching in Marion, Illinois, when the Lord gave me a special word. He told me that many people are feeling “stuck” in some area of their lives. And I’m receiving so many prayer requests every day from people who are hungry for miracles to turn their situations around.

I have good news to encourage you with today… The God we serve is a GOOD God! He has not made you and me to be stuck in life.

No, the Lord wants us to live a life of freedom, joy, and more than enough in Him, according to John 10:10, which says, “I (Jesus) have come to give you life that is more abundant…life to the full!” And also, 3 John 2, which says, “I want you to be healthy and prosper in every area of your life—spirit, soul, and body!”

He wants something GOOD to happen to YOU!

Now, I know that sometimes when we’re feeling stuck in some area of our lives, it can be hard to focus on anything but the challenge we’re facing… Maybe you or someone you care about is feeling trapped or unable to move forward…

You may feel you are not keeping up with rising costs in our economy or are facing problems on the job or in your business.

You or your loved ones may be facing sickness and disease, and even though you have been to the doctor and have prayed, you just don’t seem to be getting any better.

Perhaps you are facing problems in your family or marriage and feel you are only a few steps away from a break-up.

Or you may feel depressed and discouraged, and nobody around you is giving you a word of encouragement.

I want to remind you to EXPECT MIRACLES as you read this word that the Lord gave me to share with you for your freedom and deliverance…

First, if you are feeling stuck, you are not alone. Many people in the Bible found themselves in challenging circumstances, but God brought EACH ONE of them out!

Just look how He brought Moses out of Egypt… I mean, Moses had killed a man… He went into hiding in the backside of the desert and thought he’d never be used by God… But at the right time, God turned Moses into a mighty deliverer!

And remember Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego… They were thrown into a fiery furnace, sentenced to death for worshipping God. But the Fourth Man, Jesus, came and protected them so that not a hair on their heads was even singed!

God brought Daniel out of a death sentence when he was thrown into the lions’ den. He brought David out when it looked like Saul was going to kill him and he’d never take his place as the rightful, anointed king of Israel. He brought Peter out of prison…and Paul out of shipwrecks and attacks against his life.

And since God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34; Romans 2:11), He can do for YOU what He did for Moses, Daniel, David, Peter, and Paul.

Now, I believe that if you will join with me by releasing your faith for God to turn around your circumstances for good, then He will begin to bring you and your loved ones out of any “stuck” condition you may have found yourself in.

You may say, “Richard, what do I need to do to get UNSTUCK in my life?” Well, let me tell you what I believe God wants us to do TOGETHER to MOVE ALL OF US FORWARD…

THIS MINISTRY, THE MINISTRY THAT YOU LOVE…AND THAT BRINGS YOU HEALING PRAYER… IS ALSO STUCK…stuck between where we are and where God wants us to be. That’s right, I said STUCK!

There are so many dreams and visions God has given me for this ministry’s future…more outreaches, more online courses, more healing meetings… more ways to reach you and your loved ones with God’s healing power… These dreams and visions don’t have a chance to come to pass without a big increase in our ministry’s finances… But I refuse to become stuck by financial challenges! I refuse to let the world’s negative news or economic forecasts get me down. This ministry is moving forward, no matter what!

Now, when Peter and the other disciples were stuck because of the satanic attacks that had come against them, they didn’t rant and rave and begin a riot… They simply went to their “own company” and gave the report on what was happening so that they could join in faith and pray for MIRACLES according to God’s Word and His will (Acts 4:23–31).

Partner, that’s what I’m doing in this letter.

When I think of the millions of souls we’ve won to Christ…When I think of the hundreds of thousands of miracle healings that have been reported through our outreaches…When I think of the major healing crusades we’ve had around the world… the feeding outreaches and medical clinics that have fed hungry children and brought healing to the sick…and all the good that has been done around the world through the Oral Roberts Ministries in third world nations…

When I think of the thousands of television programs I’ve done, reaching out my hands in healing prayer and getting thousands upon thousands of reports of answered prayer… It makes me shout, GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST…

BUT…there is still so much to be done! And time is short…

The truth is, my heart yearns to do more for God in the United States, Canada, and nations all over the world. But it takes finances to expand and grow this ministry so we can do more for the Lord.

So, let’s talk about money for just a moment…because it’s not just money…your money or mine. God has placed it in our hands through an ability given us to earn it. And we are called to be wise stewards of the resources He places in our hands to do His will on the earth.

Let me say it again… The seed you sow is not mere money. It’s a precious resource from the Lord! It’s a tool that He gives us. When a portion of it is placed in the hands of a loving God who is our abundant Provider, MIRACLES begin to happen… and we step into HARVEST TIME!

You see, the seed you sow is an investment into the Kingdom of our God, Who is MORE THAN ENOUGH… And your seed allows us to give more of this healing ministry to people around the world through TV and all our outreaches.

Consider Gerri from Kenya… She was showing the advanced effects of AIDS—a death sentence in Africa—when I went to Nairobi for a healing outreach. I prayed for her… The boils and lesions on her body began to disappear. She regained her strength… And after her doctor tested her, he confirmed that she was healed. She no longer has AIDS!

Just think for a moment about what would have happened if we didn’t have the finances to do our healing crusade in Kenya. Gerri would still be sick with a terrible, killing disease, unable to fulfill the good plans that God has for her.

If we didn’t have our School of Miracles courses online, Aage from Denmark wouldn’t have seen them…and he wouldn’t have released his faith and received his healing and restoration of his physical body.

Brent from Michigan saw The Place for Miracles and decided to accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. His life was changed because we can make our TV programs available… But it takes finances to do that.

I believe it’s the will of God for the Oral Roberts Ministries to minister to people like Gerri, Aage, and Brent… but I can’t continue to do it like I’m doing it now, much less grow and expand, without special financial help.

Just as the Apostle Paul went to his friends and partners for financial help to spread the Gospel, I’m coming to you now… This ministry depends upon our partners sowing and praying to make it possible for people to hear the GOOD NEWS. And no matter how much the anointing of God is on my life to bring salvation and healing to people, I CAN’T DO IT ALONE.

I tell you, the devil does not want this healing ministry to continue reaching out to people with the saving, healing, delivering power of Jesus Christ. He knows his time on earth is short, and there is a war being waged against Christianity today. But when the enemy comes in like a flood, that’s when I begin to look for God to raise up a standard.

I believe that’s why the anointing of God is on me like never before. God is raising up a standard of healing power, and He’s using THIS MINISTRY to do it. I tell you, we’ve got to reach out to people in need. It’s now or never. All we have is NOW. So, we have to do what we can for the Lord and the Gospel TODAY!

Make no mistake about it… It’s the Lord’s power that delivers people. BUT it’s OUR part to tell people who God is and what He can do! Your financial support and prayers help make it possible for us to air our TV programs around the world and pay for the technology to share our School of Miracles courses online AT NO CHARGE…so people can hear the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus.

And no matter how anointed I am, that anointing will not take the place of YOUR PARTNERSHIP with this ministry. Only you can do what God has called you to do. Only you can sow the seed God has called you to sow. No one else can sow it for you.

That’s why I’m going to ask you to do what I’ve been asking partners all this month to do…and that is to help me in a very powerful way. Recently, the Lord asked me to call for four groups of people to sow a special seed.

Group 1I believe He is speaking to a group of my partners to sow a special seed of $1,000 this month.

Group 2—I believe He is speaking to another group of my partners to sow a seed of $500 this month.

Group 3—I believe He is speaking to an even larger group of my partners to sow a special seed of $100 or $200.

Group 4—I believe He is also speaking to an even larger group of my partners to sow other amounts this month as the Lord leads.

I am asking you to pray right now and ask the Holy Spirit which group He wants you to be a part of. Thanks so much for praying right now. I really appreciate it.

TOGETHER WE CAN DO IT!

Yes, the word TOGETHER is a very powerful word. Let me close this letter with a news story I heard the other day. In the Northwest part of the U.S., a small town had a horse-pulling contest. One farm horse was able to pull a load of eight thousand pounds. Then a special horse was brought in. He was able to pull a load of nine thousand pounds.

Then they harnessed the two horses together. Guess how much they could pull then? They pulled an amazing thirty thousand pounds! Wow! TOGETHER WE CAN DO IT!

I tell you, I’m so excited about the future of this ministry. With your help, and the help of partners and friends like you, we can do ALL that God has called us to do to bring the saving, healing, delivering power of God to people in need.

Thanks for being my special friend and partner. And as you sow, get your expectations up to receive from the Lord. I’m in faith with you for MIRACLES! Remember, God watches over His Word to perform it. Believe me, the Bible makes it clear that He WILL reward you for your labor and your gift of love (Matthew 6:33; Deuteronomy 15:11; 2 Corinthians 9:10).

I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Your partner for miracles,

Richard

 

PS. Remember, no matter what you or your loved ones may be facing right now… IT’S NOT TOO LATE FOR 2014 TO BE THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE. The seed I’m asking you to sow right now just might be the catalyst that God will use to bless you in a very powerful way. PLEASE respond to this letter as quickly as you can. As my gift to you for your special over-and-above seed this month, I’ll send you our beautiful 2015 Miracles Calendar—filled with scriptures and testimonies of how God is working in the lives of our partners. Again, thanks so much for allowing me to share so personally with you!

October Letter

Dear Partner,

The Lord has put something very important on my heart to share with you…a word that can bring about MIRACLES for you, me, and this ministry. So, I’m asking the Lord to give me great wisdom and guidance as I share my heart with you now.

The Oral Roberts Ministries has stood for the saving, healing, delivering power of God since 1947. My father, Oral Roberts, faithfully did the work of the Lord through healing tent meetings, evangelistic crusades, television, and more…

When the Lord called me into the ministry in the late 1960s, I was glad to join my father in the ministry and dedicate myself to God’s work. I became President of the ministry in the mid-1980s, and it has been my privilege to serve all these many years. And I’ve been doing that ever since!

The anointing of the Lord’s power has been and is on my life for miracles!

For more than forty years, I’ve seen MIRACLE upon MIRACLE take place through this ministry. In fact, it would be hard to count just how many hundreds of thousands of HEALINGS and how many millions of SALVATIONS have happened over the years through the Oral Roberts Ministries!

Millions of people have had their lives transformed through our TV programs, the Abundant Life Prayer Group, the School of Miracles, our evangelistic crusades, healing meetings, medical and feeding outreaches, letters, CDs, DVDs, and our many other outreaches.

Time is short to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth! We’re seeing wars, natural disasters, economic turmoil, political unrest, terrorist acts…and all the other signs that Jesus said are to come upon the earth just before His Second Coming (Matthew 24:14).

Yes, the devil is rearing his ugly head to try to disrupt the spread of the Gospel in these last days. Satan has even been attacking this ministry’s work in a very powerful way. He’s been coming against our finances and trying to stop the Word of God from going forth through our TV programs and our other outreaches…

He has tried to make it seem as if this ministry is STUCK…

But I refuse to believe the devil’s lies! I refuse to believe that this ministry is stuck between where we are and where the Lord has called us to be. No matter what our finances look like right now or what the devil may say or do, I will not cut back on God’s calling for my life and for this healing ministry!

This ministry is continuing to move forward in God! We have so much work to do for the Lord…and I refuse to back down on any of it!

And that’s why I’m calling on YOU right now to join with me…

You see, God has given me a vision of the GREAT FUTURE He has for this ministry and the millions of people around the world that we can reach together for Him. No matter what you see on the news…no matter how things look in your circumstances…He is STILL MOVING across the face of the earth! He is STILL DOING MIRACLES through this ministry!

And there are so many people we can reach with God’s miracle power…

I’m talking about people like the nine-year-old girl who SPOKE for the first time in years after receiving prayer at one of our healing services… Her family is still rejoicing over this miracle!

I’m talking about Gertrude from Texas who was HEALED of stage four cancer in her lungs, liver, and bones. With a report of stage four cancer, her doctors couldn’t offer much hope. But she kept watching The Place for Miracles, which is where she learned to release her faith for healing.

Imagine what might have happened if she couldn’t see our TV programs! But the doctors have now declared her CANCER-FREE…because of partners like YOU who keep the healing GOSPEL on the air every day. These are the kinds of miracles YOU are helping to bring about with your faithful seed-sowing.

And because you are sowing seed into these miracles, they can return a harvest to you…30-, 60-, even 100-fold as Mark 4:8 says…in the way you need it most.

And imagine how many more lives we can touch and how much more we can accomplish for the Lord as we stand in faith TOGETHER… giving of ourselves TOGETHER…to see this healing ministry continue its work to deliver God’s saving, healing, and delivering power to those who are without hope.

As a matter of fact, in prayer just the other night, the Lord told me that He is bringing an even greater anointing for healing upon my life. He described it as a DRIPPING ANOINTING…and that it was particularly an anointing against sickness and disease.

That reminded me of His Word in Isaiah 10:27, which says that the yoke of bondage…the thing that has tried to bind you up…will be destroyed through God’s anointing power. And it reminded me also of how the anointing oil was used to set God’s ministers and prophets apart for holy service to Him (Psalm 133:2).

His anointing is not meant for me… It’s meant for YOU! It’s meant to spread into every outreach of this ministry…into YOUR life…and into the lives of everyone you’ve been praying for! You and those you care about can ALL be touched by God’s anointing through this ministry!

You may say, “Richard, what can I do to help make a difference?”

Well, in my experience, whenever God gives you a Word about His good plans for you, the devil tries immediately to steal that Word. That’s why we’ve got to stand strong and resist the devil’s attempts to hinder us from doing what God has called us to do!

I am FULLY COMMITTED to doing everything that God has called me to do through this healing ministry. I’m ready to see Him move mightily through our outreaches and in our partners’ lives.

Partner, remember this… The Gospel is FREE! Salvation is FREE! Healing is FREE! Jesus paid for it all on the cross.

But as you know, television and technology aren’t free. Books and DVDs cost money. Evangelistic outreaches…food to the hungry…keeping our prayer lines open and ready for YOU to call when you need us… All these things must be paid for.

Unfortunately, in the summer months, our revenues drop and we’re facing a shortfall right now. And I know that many people have been busy with families and jobs, and making back-to-school plans for their children… In fact, Lindsay and I are praying right now for you and your families and dear ones to be blessed this fall season in every way!

It’s on my heart to do all I can do to see you blessed! It’s my heart’s desire to continue offering our School of Miracles courses online AT NO COST so that anyone can study them at any time.

Think of it… Through the power and reach of the Internet, we can send these Bible-based School of Miracles courses on healing, the Holy Spirit, and God’s miracle-working power to people in out-of-reach places where the Gospel may not otherwise easily go! We’re receiving reports daily of people being saved, healed, and set free through these free online courses.

And it’s my heart’s desire to make sure that The Place for Miracles and Make Your Day Count are available on television in as many places as possible, where they can continue to reach people like Gertrude with healing miracles!

Let me tell you, if the devil is successful in stopping our free online School of Miracles courses or in taking our FULL GOSPEL programs off the air in any of the places they’re seen, then he can get the idea that perhaps he can put a stop to all of our ministry outreaches.

Now I, for one, am going to do all in my power to stop him in the name of the Lord. In addition, I’m calling on you to stand with me also. In the book of Acts, when Peter and the others were beaten for their faith in Christ, they immediately went back to their OWN COMPANY and reported on what was happening so that they could join in faith and pray for MIRACLES according to God’s Word and His will (Acts 4:23–31).

And that’s exactly what I’m doing now. I feel that this ministry is under a satanic attack and that I must report it to you. And as I am giving this report to you now, I feel a SPIRIT OF PRAYER COMING ON ME…

Father, I come to You now, not in my name or strength, but in the name of Jesus Christ, Your only begotten Son. I know that You know exactly where this ministry is…and where You want it to go. You also know that the devil is trying to stop it. I ask You now, through this prayer, to stir our hearts with a HOLY BOLDNESS to act in Your name and to do everything possible to move into the bright future You have for us, so that this ministry will continue to touch people around the world with Your saving, healing, and delivering power. Thank You, Lord, for hearing my prayer, in the name of Jesus. Amen and Amen.

I pray that you felt that prayer as I did. Now, let me remind you of the difference that you can make…

By sowing your seed into this ministry, YOU share in the rewards of every person who is saved, healed, and delivered through this ministry. Yes, YOU have the power in your hands right now to help that work to go forward

So, I’m calling on you to stand with me in faith for this ministry’s resources to increase and for our outreaches to keep growing stronger until Jesus returns! Now, here’s what I feel the Lord would have me ask of you… And that is to sow an ABOVE AND BEYOND SEED OF YOUR FINANCES.

I am speaking to four groups of partners to give an ABOVE and BEYOND SEED…

First, I’m speaking to a group of a few hundred partners to sow a seed of $1,000, and to sow it right now!

Second, I’m speaking to a larger group of partners to sow a seed of at least $300, and to sow it right now!

Third, I’m speaking to an even larger group of partners to sow a seed of at least $100, and to sow it right now!

And fourth, I’m speaking to a group of partners to sow a seed of at least $50, and to sow it right now!

Would you pray right now and ask the Lord what He would have you do? Please seek Him and ACT on what He tells you to do just as quickly as you possibly can! I trust you…and I trust Him.

I believe that you love this ministry and that you want it to be strong and continue to reach out to people around the world with the healing message of Jesus Christ. THAT MESSAGE IS MY LIFE AND MY CALLING…AND IT’S FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND DEAR ONES.

I trust God to speak to you about the seed He would have you sow… And I trust Him to multiply every penny of it back to you in the way you need most! He’s a good God with good plans for YOU…and that includes a harvest on your giving, according to Luke 6:38!

Thank you for your love for this ministry and your prayers for us to continue strong in sending the healing message of Jesus Christ to the world. Now, please DON’T DELAY in sending your response. I believe there are people all over the world whose lives will be touched and changed because of your response to this letter.

I am praying that I hear from you soon!

Your partner for miracles,

Richard

Mid-September Letter

Dear Partner,

I’m so excited about our EXPECT A MIRACLE CAMPAIGN! In fact, I’m already receiving miracle reports back from many partners. And I can’t wait to hear from YOU as we join together believing for miracles in YOUR life!

The other day, someone asked me if they had a right…a real right…to expect miracles from God. I replied, “Of course you have a right. You’re a blood-washed child of the Most High God. He loves His children…and that includes YOU!”

Believe me…We Christians have every right to believe for and receive God’s miracle touch in our lives. Just look at the Bible. It’s filled with His proof that He’s the God of the miraculous.

Remember, there was no way that the Pharaoh of Egypt was going to let all the Hebrew slaves go just because Moses demanded it. After all, the children of Israel had served Egypt for hundreds of years. They had built cities, monuments, tombs, palaces, and all kinds of structures. Why would Egypt let their work force leave?

But God had a plan and God had a man…Moses. And through a series of GREAT MIRACLES, Pharaoh finally let the people go.

Now, that was only the beginning of Israel’s miraculous deliverance. Not only were some two and a half million Hebrews delivered from slavery, but in addition, there was not a sick or weak one among them.

And that’s not all. They took with them the silver, gold, and precious things from all the Egyptian households. No…they didn’t steal it. God simply put it all in their hands. One day they were paupers…the next day they were multimillionaires.

You can read in Exodus about all the miracles God did to preserve His people and take them across the Jordan River into the Promised Land. And I tell you, the Bible is just as REAL TO YOU AND ME TODAY as it was when it was being written long ago.

God is STILL DOING HIS MIRACLES!

That’s why I’m so excited about the EXPECT A MIRACLE CAMPAIGN that I launched at the beginning of this month. And I believe it’s very important to you! So, I really want to get the EXPECT A MIRACLE PACKET into your hands.

I’m urging you right now to stop for a moment and request your EXPECT A MIRACLE PACKET. There is no cost, and it’s yours for the asking. As you request yours, let your expectation soar and really, really, REALLY expect God’s miracles in your life and in the lives of your family members and dear ones.

You may say, “Richard, you don’t know what I’m going through. It seems all I can see right now is the bottom of the barrel. Everything is falling apart.”

Believe me, I’ve experienced times like that in my life too. I know exactly what it feels like when it looks like you have nowhere to turn and no one to turn to. But remember this and don’t ever forget it…When we turn to God, sow our seeds of faith, and believe His Word, we have His authority to EXPECT Him to show up in our behalf.

Wow! Just now as I’m writing this letter, the Lord gave me a scripture… It’s in Isaiah 43:18–19… Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness; and rivers in the desert.

That was hot off the wire from the Lord. Wow! A WAY IN THE WILDERNESS AND RIVERS…YES, RIVERS IN THE DESERT! Now, that’s really a powerful word from the Lord for you and for me.

Now, listen to this…for it is directly from the Lord. DON’T LET THE DEVIL STOP YOU FROM MOVING FORWARD. Say this to him… DEVIL I COMMAND YOU, IN THE NAME OF JESUS, TAKE YOUR DIRTY, ROTTEN, STINKING HANDS OFF ME, MY FAMILY, AND ALL THOSE I HOLD DEAR!

Now you’re talking out of your spirit and not your flesh. Now you’re getting into expectation.

I tell you, I can’t wait to hear from you about the miracles that I’m expecting God to do for you. That’s why I believe it’s so important for you to request the EXPECT A MIRACLE PACKET. Do it today while you’re thinking about it.

Now it’s seed time…and seed time is always followed by HARVEST TIME.

A few Sundays ago, I was preaching in a large church in Louisville, Kentucky. When the Pastor told the congregation it was time to sow our tithes and offerings, the crowd broke out into spontaneous applause. Then, up on the big screens on both sides of the platform, they put up a faith declaration. We all stood up and began to read this faith declaration out loud. I was so impressed by it that I want to share it with you

Partner, I believe that as you read it in this letter, then continue to read it out loud over and over again whenever you sow seed, it will bless you and help you to get into expectation for God to do some miraculous things in your life…Read this out loud…

Lord Jesus, I come into your presence today not empty handed, but bringing my tithes and offerings according to Malachi 3:10.

I declare the windows of heaven are opened to me. Blessings are being poured out that I cannot contain. The devourer is being rebuked for my sake.

This year is a continuation of the jubilee blessings. By faith I have: a better job, promotions, raises, bonuses and benefits, business opportunities, increases in sales and commissions, inheritances, rebates, settlements and checks in the mail.

I’m expecting favor, interest, royalties, scholarships, gifts, surprises, and newfound monies. I am using wisdom and self- control in my spending. My bills are decreasing, and my income is increasing.

I have the anointing for blessings, equipping me to be a giver for the kingdom of God. I declare by faith my bills are paid and there is no lack.

I have been given by God the power to create wealth. The favor of God is upon me, and everything I put my hand to will prosper.

I am a cheerful giver, sowing in good ground that is bringing souls into the kingdom of God…and my God is supplying all my needs. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

WOW—WHAT A FAITH DECLARATION THAT IS!

Now, after making that statement of your faith over your life, are you ready to sow a special seed to God? I pray that you are. I want you to notice that along with a place for you to write down your prayer requests for me to pray over, I have also put a place for you to indicate what seed you feel led of the Lord to sow into this healing ministry this month.

So, I’m asking you to ask the Lord right now what He would have you give as an offering into this ministry. As you send in your seed, be sure to remember the FAITH DECLARATION we just read together. It’s very powerful. I hope you will read and declare it often. Every time I do it, I get into GREAT EXPECTATION for miracles.

If you’ve not already done so, request your EXPECT A MIRACLE PACKET at no cost to you. If you’ve already requested yours, then perhaps you would like to request one for somebody else.

Now, let me say it one more time…LET’S RAISE OUR EXPECTATIONS FOR GOD’S MIRACLE TOUCH!

I’m looking forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks so much for standing with me in faith and in prayer. May the blessing of the Lord be upon you now… and forever more…in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Your partner for miracles,

Richard

September Letter

Dear Partner,

It’s so good to write you today and to thank you for your partnership. Your role in this Healing Ministry is so vital! In fact, I want you to know that every seed you have sown has been sown into the good soil of the Gospel of Jesus…and has been a blessing to so many people around the world.

You also need to know that you have a part in every soul saved, every healing, and every life changed through this ministry! Praise God!

I want to share something special with you…

Just the other day, I was in the kitchen. Lindsay was sitting at our breakfast table with her calendar sitting in front of her. I noticed she was putting colored stickers on certain days of the month. I was curious, so I asked her what the stickers were for.

She said that they were REMINDERS to her to help her remember and pay close attention to things that needed to be done for our dogs… (As you may know, we have two Chihuahuas.)

Lindsay has always been big on reminders. She often puts stickers and those little Post-It notes around the bathroom to remind me of scriptures and other things she wants me to remember.

As she and I were talking about it, she asked me if I remembered a time some years ago, when she had an attack of sickness that came against her body… She asked if I recalled how she wrote down the scripture in 1 Peter 2:24, which says, “…By the stripes on Jesus’ back, I am healed.”

Not only that… She kept a written record of confessing that verse 450 times a day. That’s right, I said 450 times a day. Believe me, she was serious about believing for her healing!

And the day came when her healing was fully manifested. Her confession of faith and expectation every day brought her to the place where she could say, “I GOT MY MIRACLE.”

As you may know, I’ve been talking a lot lately about a SEASON OF MIRACLES. I’ve been encouraging people everywhere to focus their faith and believe for miracles every day of their lives. And literally every day I’m receiving testimonies of healing from people all over the world saying, “I GOT MY MIRACLE.”

Lindsay often says to me, “Richard, what you focus on will develop in your life.” And that’s so true!

You know, too often, people confess and focus on the negative rather than focusing on the Word of God with faith and expectation. But if we really want to…GET OUR MIRACLE…from God, there has to be an expectation change.

It’s like my father, Oral Roberts, used to say… “EXPECT A MIRACLE.” But we must not stop there! We’ve got to take the next step…and that’s EXPECTING A NEW MIRACLE EVERY DAY!

Remember, Jesus said in Mark 11:24, “Therefore I say unto you, what things so ever ye desire, when you pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” I came into the healing ministry by praying and confessing this scripture. I mean, I put my faith on it, believed it, and quoted it every day until the miracles started happening…

And they’ve been happening ever since. Now, that was way back in 1980. And miracles are still happening through this ministry… Thanks be to God forever more!

Let’s look at the Bible for a moment. Take Joshua, for example… He was told by God to subdue and destroy the city of Jericho. Now, the city itself had huge walls. They were unscalable by humans. There was no way for Joshua to climb the walls or knock them down, yet he had a word from God to take the city.

As Joshua and his soldiers prayed and confessed their victory, God gave them a strategy… And by the time they finished marching and shouting—by the command of the Lord—the walls fell flat… And they were able to take the city.

Now, since I gave my heart to the Lord when I was 19, I have lived my life in expectation, believing for SOMETHING GOOD TO HAPPEN!

Partner, I have said all this because of something very special that I have prepared for you and all my other friends and partners. It’s an EXPECT A MIRACLE PACKET. Yes that’s right. I said an EXPECT A MIRACLE PACKET… And it’s for YOU.

It’s a tool to help you to focus, plan, believe, and expect the miracles you need from God… and to help you get into a position to say…

“I GOT MY MIRACLE!”

In the EXPECT A MIRACLE PACKET, I have included a DAILY EXPECTATION CHART to help you keep a record of confessing and believing God’s Word every day. I have also included a sheet of special STICKERS and instructions on how to use them and where to place them. There is also a PRAYER CLOTH that I have personally laid my hands on and prayed over.

One more thing…

I have also included a MIRACLE TESTIMONY SHEET in the packet so that you can write on it the miracles that you, your family, and dear ones receive. I really want to know about the great things that God does for you as you believe Him in faith for answers to prayer. I can’t wait to hear you say, “I GOT MY MIRACLE!”

As always, I lovingly give you an opportunity to sow a devil-busting seed of your finances as an offering unto the Lord through this Healing Ministry. Remember, as you sow, you have a Bible right to believe God to use your seed for His glory and honor…then to multiply it back to you in exactly the way you need it the most, according to Luke 6:38 and Philippians 4:15–19.

Thanks in advance for your prayers and your seed-faith offering this month. I really appreciate it. Your seed is helping me to keep this ministry strong for the glory of the Lord.

Also, be sure to use your EXPECT A MIRACLE PACKET…every day if possible. Be sure and use the stickers according to the instructions. I believe that everything in the Packet will help you to focus and believe for God’s touch on your life.

I can’t wait to hear you say… “I GOT MY MIRACLE!”

I’m looking forward to hearing from you real soon.

 

Your partner for miracles,

Richard
