It’s the middle of August, and it’s hot in many places. Even in Canada, it’s warm at this time of year. Yet even though it’s hot, parents and kids are already back to school shopping. As a matter of fact, many schools will begin classes this coming week, while others will follow over the next few weeks.
Yes, it’s truly a time of preparation for many families. And you know, it ought to be A PREPARATION TIME for all of us—whether we have kids or grandkids going back to school or not.
You may say, “What do you mean, Richard, a time of preparation?”
Well, let me tell you. This ought to be a time to prepare…to assess…to reconsider some things in our lives and plan to do some things better. Actually, it’s a good time to get a jumpstart for our whole lives. Some people wait until January 1 to do what I’m talking about… But I have a new, fresh idea from the Lord to urge you to do it now and not to wait until the middle of the winter.
“Well,” you say, “what did you have in mind?”
I have a BACK TO BASICS plan for you and all of my partners. You know, a soldier has a certain routine that he or she goes through before going into battle. We Christians ought to do the same thing…especially considering that we are really SOLDIERS OF THE LORD ourselves. As 2 Timothy 2:3 says, we are to endure and work as good soldiers of Jesus Christ!
So, let’s get started. The first thing on the checklist is to examine your relationship with God. It’s so easy to get busy and put the Lord second to so many other things in our lives. There are even some people who only think about the Lord when they get into trouble.
I have known people who put their Bible aside for months, and then wonder why they can’t find it. And you know, when the devil comes in with his satanic attacks, we don’t have time to say, “Time out, devil, let me find my Bible…I know it’s here somewhere…I saw it a few months back.”
No, you certainly don’t ever want to be like that. The reason is simple… The Bible is your way, your roadmap, your highway to navigate through troubled waters. And you just don’t want to be without the ability to sow the Word of God into the garden of your heart on a daily basis.
Also, how about your prayer life? I get up early—usually around dawn each morning—and seek the Lord in prayer. And it’s amazing how much better the day is when I do that. Once in a while I miss having that prayer time, and I can really tell the difference when I don’t do it. And I can’t wait to get back to it the next day.
Lately, in my School of Miracles, I’ve been doing a deep study and teaching that I’ve called JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE. I first taught a series from Genesis through Deuteronomy…the first five books of the Old Testament. Then I went on into Joshua, Judges, Ruth, First and Second Samuel, First and Second Kings and Chronicles…and on and on until I finished with Malachi…Then on into the New Testament starting with Matthew.
I am currently teaching in the middle of the book of Mark. He wrote primarily to address the Romans, who were the masters of the world at that time. I’m really enjoying teaching it… But even more than that, it is giving me a much better understanding of the Bible for myself. In fact, as I’m teaching the Word, the Word is getting deeper and deeper in me.
As I write this letter, there are more than 20,000 students enrolled in the Richard Roberts School of Miracles in over 75 nations. If you would like to know how to become a student AT NO CHARGE TO YOU, just go to som.oralroberts.com. There are almost 120 hours of teaching available—all on demand. You can start the online videos, stop them, and start them again whenever it’s convenient for you to view them. And you can always order DVDs of the classes too.
The next thing I do is make sure I am allowing the Holy Spirit to flow through me every day. That’s why I pray in tongues. I don’t do it because I’m better than anybody else… No, I do it because I need prayer. Paul said in Romans 8:26, The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us…
And that is so true! There are so many times I don’t know exactly what to pray for…but when I break into tongues, then stop and begin to pray in English, two things usually happens. First, I feel a release in my spirit, because I have emptied myself of doubt and fear and I’m praying in God’s will (Romans 8:27). Then in my mind, I begin to get new ideas and concepts…and new and innovative ways of doing things. Suddenly I know what to do and what direction to go in.
I pray in tongues (in the Holy Spirit) every day of my life. Doing it is one of my best secret weapons. It’s something that you, as a Christian, can do each day also. Remember, the world can’t do it. It is only available to those of us who are blood-bought Christians by faith in Jesus’ name. Actually, I pray in tongues many times a day. I usually pray quietly under my breath because I’m not praying for people to hear me. No, I’m praying for God to hear me.
As I do it, I am tapping into the Holy Spirit’s prayer in Romans 8:26 as He is constantly interceding in our behalf. I can tell you from experience that praying in tongues daily is a life-changing experience.
One more thing I would check on… Please, please, please make sure you have seed in the ground. Sowing seed to God is another very powerful secret weapon.
Listen, it’s a fact… Only what you sow can be multiplied back to you in the form of a harvest. And there are so many ways that we can sow… We can sow our time, our love, our prayers, a kind word or deed… We can sow of our finances… There are so many ways to sow seeds of faith unto the Lord.
For me, I am constantly checking to make absolutely sure my tithes and offerings are up-to-date. I don’t ever want to fall behind. I also make sure that I’m sowing where my seed will do a good work for the Lord.
Partner, let me ask you a question…
Is this ministry a blessing to you? Do the things I do on TV, online, through books, letters, CD’s, videos, and other things bless your life? How about the Abundant Life Prayer Group? Is it a blessing to know that our prayer partners are ready every hour of every day to pray for you LIVE on the phone?
I sure hope that this healing ministry is a tremendous blessing to you each month, for I really enjoy following the call of God on my life and ministering to you and your dear ones on a daily basis.
And because I am ministering directly to you, I am honored to ask you to help me in this ministry by planting a generous seed of your finances. As you sow your seed, I encourage you to expect God to use it mightily and for His glory… Then believe Him to multiply it back to you in exactly the way you need it most.
As you sow, I am joining my faith and my prayers to yours, believing that the seed you sow is going to make a difference, not only in this ministry…but also in your life. Just use the special prayer sheet I’ve enclosed with this letter. Be sure to write down all your prayer requests so that I can go to prayer over them in your behalf in the mighty name of Jesus.
Now, for just a moment let’s go back over the checklist I discussed earlier.
I’ve included a BACK TO BASICS checklist card to help you keep these essential, faith-building acts in front of your eyes and in your thoughts daily. I trust it will help you to be strong in the Lord—spirit, soul, and body—no matter what may be going on in your circumstances. Use this checklist to make sure you are putting God first in your life. Check on your prayer life and see if you are spending enough time seeking His face in praise and worship every day.
If you’re not already doing it, be sure to begin praying in tongues every day and allowing God to give you special Holy Spirit instructions and directions.
Also, remember not to get behind in your seed sowing. Only what you sow unto the Lord can be multiplied.
Now…just one more thing… PLEASE REMEMBER ME AND THIS MINISTRY IN YOUR PRAYERS EVERY DAY. I would really, really appreciate it… In fact, I’m counting on it. Your prayers, seed-faith gifts, and support help this ministry to share the saving, healing, delivering power of Jesus Christ around the world!
I’m looking forward to receiving your answer to this letter. Until I hear from you, know that all my prayers are with you. Many blessings in the name of the Lord!
Your partner for miracles,
PS. Please be sure to put your BACK TO BASICS CHECKLIST CARD somewhere you can see it and review it regularly. You could pin it to your refrigerator or keep it in your Bible. Use it to make sure you’re putting God first in your life and putting yourself in a position to receive miracles from Him!

Let me ask you a question. What do you do when your circumstances have you so turned around that you feel like you just don’t know what to do? That’s a question many people have faced in their lives… And many of my friends and partners are facing that issue right now.
Sometimes, it seems like the bottom has fallen out of your life… Friends forsake you… The money to pay bills runs short… Then, you or someone you love gets sick… And it feels like Satan is having a field day.
Believe me, I know exactly how that feels. There have been times in my life when the stress and pressure of situations seemed to loom over my head so much that I just didn’t know if I was going to survive…
That’s a powerful phrase… BUT GOD!
But God, Who scooped out the beds for the ocean, piled high the mountains, dug deep the gorges, and traced the rivers with His fingernails… But God, Who held this world in His hands, flung it into space, and told it to spin once a day… But God, Who created every living thing, then completed it by making a man in His own image…
BUT GOD, Who hasn’t fallen off the throne, came to me when I called His name! And because He did, I can reach out to you and your dear ones and family with all my faith and prayers, and bring you a powerful word from the Lord through this letter.
You know, I receive letters, emails, and phone calls for prayer for so many needs. Sometimes we receive over 3,000 phone calls in a 24-hour period through the Abundant Life Prayer Group. And many people have more than one need weighing down on them. Sometimes it’s a spiritual need. Sometimes it’s physical and there’s a need for healing. Sometimes it’s financial, and sometimes it’s in the family. And when you find yourself in tight spots, in hard situations, and in tough times, it’s so easy to get discouraged and down in the mouth.
But that’s when we need to focus in on God’s Word more than ever, for in hard times, we need more than ever to turn to the One who rescues His people… the One who saves, heals, and delivers. That’s when we need to remember what God tells us in 1 John 5:4 which says, For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
That’s right… There’s a God-given, divine, Biblically sound and proven way to overcome the trials that the world sends our way… We do it through our FAITH in the Lord and His promises to us that are found in His Word!
Now, before I talk more about that, I just want to remind you how the devil works…because he has no new tricks up his sleeve. No, he uses the same old schemes against us…
He tries to convince us to doubt God’s Word, to compromise in our faith, and to do things in our own strength alone, because he knows that when we act in our own strength, we are no match for him. He’ll try to wear us down with troubles until we get upset, discouraged, and too weary to put up a fight…and we actually begin to blame God for the problems instead of him.
Listen carefully… What I’m about to tell you is very important, especially if you’ve been falling for the devil’s schemes. If you’ve been facing a struggle and you’ve been feeling like your emotions are in an upheaval, don’t beat yourself up about it. Recognize that it’s a tool of the devil to try to get you off course. And then turn to God for His help and provision.
Let me say it again more boldly… DON’T GIVE UP ON YOUR FAITH… because it’s YOUR FAITH that helps you overcome the devil’s tricks and strategies. How do you do this? You believe God and obey His Word. You refuse to yield to what the devil has planned. You attach your faith to the One Who made you.
And you plant seeds of your faith against the needs and problems you’re facing, so that God can use them for His glory, then multiply them back to you many times over…in just the way you need it most. Yes, I said start planting offerings unto the Lord… Release your faith in all His ability… Then, begin to expect Him to intervene in your behalf with His miracle multiplication power and bring you the answers you need.
I’m talking about doing what Joseph did in Bible days when he faced just about every problem imaginable. Do you realize how much he went through?
He was attacked by his brothers and thrown into a pit.
He was sold as a slave into Egypt.
He rose up to success in Potiphar’s house, only to be accused of a crime he didn’t commit.
He was thrown into a prison unjustly.
He rose up to success in the prison where, with God’s help, he interpreted dreams of his fellow prisoners…only to be forgotten again.
He probably thought he would waste away in prison his whole life, yet he continued to sow into the lives of others.
Yet after all of Joseph’s seed sowing and forgiving the ones who had hurt him…his day finally came. It was Joseph who interpreted Pharaoh’s dream… and Joseph rose up again… But this time it was to assume the second highest position in the Egyptian government…THE PRIME MINISTER.
Partner, God met Joseph at the point of his need. Joseph never wavered in his faith. He faithfully kept on believing God and planting his seeds of faith. And it was Joseph whom God used to bring a great miracle into the lives of his family… yes, even into the whole nation of Israel.
I believe God wants to use each one of us in a powerful way…a way that will not only be a blessing to others…but will also bless us. That’s why I have written my new book, WHEN ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE…
In my last letter, I offered a copy to you at no cost. People from all over the world have been contacting me to get the new book.
Now, I want to take it a step further. I want to offer another copy at no cost in case you missed my last letter or if you want to share the book with a loved one or a friend, so that this book can be a blessing to them.
Perhaps you’ve already responded to my last letter. Perhaps you’ve already received my new book and are reading it. Wouldn’t you like to have another copy to give to someone else who is in need? I’m sure you know somebody who really needs to know what to do WHEN ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE in their life.
Now as I usually do, I have enclosed a prayer sheet with this letter. On it, there is a place to indicate that you want me to send you a copy of WHEN ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE for you to give to someone else.
You may ask, “Richard, why are you giving so many copies away?” Well, there’s a reason. I REALLY BELIEVE IN SEED SOWING! And I believe that as I bless you and all our other friends and partners, the Lord will meet all my needs and also the needs of this ministry. THAT’S MY BELIEF SYSTEM AT WORK! That’s the way I practice my faith… for I love to sow into other peoples’ lives… especially into your life and the lives of my other partners and friends!
So, just as quickly as you can, take out the prayer sheet and write down the needs you especially want me to pray over right now… Then, check the little box to let me know you want me to send you a copy of my new book WHEN ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE…
Also, notice at the bottom of the prayer sheet, there is a place for you to indicate what the Lord is leading you to sow as a seed of your faith this month into this Healing Ministry. And let me take this opportunity right now to thank you for your prayers this month. They mean a great deal to me! I really appreciate it.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you very, very soon. Until I do, I remain
Your faithful HEALING PRAYER PARTNER FOR MIRACLES,
PS. I’m expecting miracles in people’s lives as they read my new book WHEN ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE, so ask for a COPY at no cost for yourself or someone you care about today!

Salad In A Jar
Whatever you like in a vegetable salad or have on hand. Some suggestions:
- Grape tomatoes
- Sugar snap peas
- Green and/or red peppers
Layer the ingredients in a large canning jar and put the lid on tight. It will keep very nicely overnight in the fridge. These ingredients can be added to spinach leaves or lettuce of your choice and topped with your favorite dressing. If you have some leftover chicken, you could toss it in with a little olive oil and seasoning in a hot wok, and you have stir fry.
This is a quick and easy thing to do for a picnic or a BBQ. It also makes a really fun and colorful gift for a housewarming or to take to someone who is sick.
I am writing this letter on my way home from Ghana, West Africa, where I recently closed a mighty three-day Healing Crusade and Pastors and Leaders conference. There were many miracles—and I’ll be telling you more about it on television soon. In fact, my TV crew is busy doing all the editing as they put the crusade together for our program, The Place for Miracles.
As I flew over the Ghana countryside, I was taken by how much is dedicated to open farm land. As a matter of fact, Ghana provides food to many surrounding areas, and as you would imagine, there is a thriving farming industry.
Looking out the window, I saw farmers planting for a new crop. It was then that it dawned on me that a seed will never change the soil, but the soil will change the seed forever.
Truly, if someone is intending to plant seed, then there are several things to consider. First, you must decide which kind of seed to plant.
But even more importantly… You must make sure that your soil is good soil and is ready to receive the seed. Otherwise, the seed may not take, and you’ll be out all that money and hard work.
In other words… No matter how high the quality of the seed is, without having good soil prepared, a person is literally wasting their time.
Jesus gave a good example of this. In Matthew 13:3, He told the story of a man who went out to sow his seed. Some seed fell along the path, and the birds ate it. Some fell on rocky places, and the seed grew fast. But the sun and the heat destroyed it. Other seed fell on thorny ground, and the plant was choked and died.
But other seed fell on good ground…where it produced a 30-, 60-, and 100-fold harvest.
Even with all of man’s discoveries, science cannot fully explain how a seed can be planted in good soil, then literally die down in the ground and spring to life and produce many, many more times than itself. Really, the only way to explain it is to call it a miracle.
When you think about it, everything in life comes from a seed. Therefore, we can easily say LIFE IS IN THE SEED. And we have that miracle life IN US because God has given us the ability to sow out of our own lives into Him and into the lives of others.
Once again, I want to remind you how important it is to plant good seed…and to sow it in good ground, for as I told you earlier…a seed will never change the soil, but good soil will change a seed forever.
How do you find good soil to plant in? Well, you have to seek the Lord… But with all that’s going on in our lives, sometimes we miss it and we don’t fully obey what the Lord wants us to do.
Sometimes we allow fear, worry, and doubt to cloud our judgment, and we miss what God is telling us. Sometimes the devil comes in and tries to get us into disobedience.
That’s what happened to Isaac in Genesis 26. You see, a famine had taken over the land. And the Bible says that it wasn’t the first famine that Isaac had faced. He had actually gone through one with his father, Abraham. So he was not unaware of how God brought his family through challenging times before.
Yet when another famine hit, Isaac wanted to run and hide. Actually, he was planning on traveling to Egypt. But God spoke to him and said, “Don’t go down to Egypt. Stay in this land and sow your seed.”
Now, imagine if Isaac had disobeyed God and had indeed traveled to a foreign land. Then, while there, he realized he had disobeyed God and tried to make up for it by planting his seed in what God would consider “rocky ground.”
I believe the same thing that happened to that farmer in Matthew 13 would have happened to Isaac! The seed he sowed would have been choked and burned out because it was not planted in the right soil, according to the word of the Lord.
Just think about it. Has there ever been a time when you planted a seed in the wrong soil and when you realized it you felt like praying for a crop failure? I sure can remember times like that. And when I realized it, I got on my face before the Lord and repented and asked Him what soil He wanted me to sow in. And when I sowed where He wanted me to sow, I got myself into a good position to receive a mighty harvest from a good and mighty God.
Look in Acts 10 at a Roman Centurion named Cornelius. Even though he was a foreigner and part of the oppressive, controlling Roman Empire, still he had a heart for God and His people. He even organized the building of a synagogue. And the Bible says that his gifts (seeds) that he had sown had come up to God as a sweet fragrance in His nose.
You see, he planted in good soil…and his seed became a memorial unto God. Now, isn’t that how you want God to look at the seed you plant? I know I do! I want to be ready at any time to sow seed when and where God directs me. In fact, wherever I am…in any kind of service…I am always prepared to sow an offering.
Partner, remember, it’s not the size of the gift that determines your harvest! It’s the obedience of your heart and your willingness to obey God even when, in the natural, it may seem hard to understand.
Many times, I feel God impressing me to sow an offering, and many times I don’t fully understand why He’s called me to sow that particular seed. Yet I always try to obey what He tells me to do. And when I miss it, as I sometimes do, I repent and ask God to forgive me, then get back in the saddle and begin sowing again.
A man once said to me, “Richard, I can’t afford to give to God…not with all I have going on in my life.” I said to him, “Sir, believe me, you can’t afford not to give to Him.”
Now, the good news is—God is in the business of multiplying seed. It’s like every time the Lord lays it on your heart to sow a seed-faith offering to Him through this Healing Ministry… You’re sowing in good ground… And you can fully expect a “good measure, pressed down, shaken together” type of miracle.
I’m talking about a 30-times, a 60-times, even a 100-times blessing from what you’ve sown. That’s what the Bible says… And I’ll stake my life on what the Bible says.
Now, here we are in the heart of the summer. In just a couple of days in the U.S., we’ll celebrate our nation’s birthday. Families all over the land will be getting together for a wonderful time of fellowship. I know I’ll be with my family on July 4th.
This is also a hot time in America…and you would expect that. After all, it is July, which is a pretty hot month in most of the country. Sometimes in the summer, many of my friends and partners forget to sow their seed of faith to God through this ministry. Sometimes they say, “I’ll wait until the fall to sow again.” Then they wonder where the harvest is in the fall. Some people even blame God, when they are the ones who have forgotten to sow out of their need.
That’s why I’m reminding you to sow your seed unto Him now, right now in the heat of the summer, and don’t wait another moment. That’s what I’m doing. In fact, I do it every month without fail.
Notice that along with this letter, I have included a FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE prayer sheet. Please take time right now as you finish reading my letter to fill out the prayer sheet. Let me know what you want me to pray about. Then ask God—I mean, really ask Him—what He wants you to sow this INDEPENDENCE month.
I believe He will show you exactly what to do. And as you do it and put it in the envelope I’ve enclosed, be sure to release your faith for the God of Heaven and Earth to bring you a mighty 30-, 60-, 100-fold harvest.
I’ll be looking for your reply!
Your partner for miracles,
PS. Remember, a seed will never change the soil, but the soil will change the seed forever. This month, as you sow your seed, sow your faith to God at the same time. Believe Him that the good soil of Oral Roberts Ministries will produce a 30-, 60-, 100-fold harvest for you in the form you need it most. And let me know how I can release my faith with you for the miracles you and your loved ones need. I’m praying for you!
