August Letter

Dear Partner,

As I write this letter, I’m on a train heading from London to Swansea, Wales. Each summer for many years, I have preached a series of healing services in the United Kingdom. As you may already know, the Oral Roberts Ministries has several branches and ministry offices in other countries. My father, Oral Roberts, established our ministry in England back in the 1960s.

Before I began this healing tour, I preached in a thriving church in London. It’s pastored by a long-time friend. As I was preparing to minister, I felt led to preach on the subject of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

For the past several months, the Lord has been dealing with me more and more to teach Christians and especially pastors and leaders that the Holy Spirit is their secret weapon. As a matter of fact, I have something special for you which I will share later on in this letter.

Right now, however, I strongly encourage you to read every word of this letter, for I believe it is especially for you and all my other friends and partners.

If you study the Bible, you’ll find that when Jesus, God’s only Son, walked the shores of the Sea of Galilee and the streets of the cities, He was limited to time and space. He could only be one place at a time. He had been the source of strength and comfort for His twelve disciples as well as the people He came into contact with.

But in John 14:16 He said, “I will ask the Father and He will send you another Comforter.”

The disciples didn’t understand. But Jesus told them in John 16:7, “It’s better for you that I go away, or else the Comforter cannot come.”

Now, in the natural when you think of the word “comforter,” you probably think of something that is placed on your bed. Lindsay has one on our bed, and I love to sleep in a cold room with that comforter pulled up tight around me. But that’s not the kind of comforter I’m talking about right now…

Jesus was referring to the Holy Spirit, or we might say His other self, or Jesus in His unlimited form, able to be in you and in me at the same time. You see, God knew when Jesus went to the cross for our sins to be forgiven and our healing by the stripes on His back, He knew He would need the Holy Spirit’s comfort and power on a daily basis.

In John 7:38, Jesus said, “Out of our bellies (our innermost beings), the Holy Spirit would flow, just like a river.” And that flowing river, the Holy Spirit, is in every born-again believer. Romans 8:16 says that when a person gets saved, the Holy Spirit comes in and bears witness with their spirit that they are born again and a child of God.

In that same verse of Romans, the Apostle Paul says that the Holy Spirit…who is in us who are Christians…is interceding (praying) 24 hours a day for us in a direct prayer to God.

He knows the mind and will of the Father, and He knows what is deep inside of us. And by an act of our will, we can enter into His prayer by His power. Actually, it’s like plugging into a power source.

Now, you may say, “Richard, how do I enter into His prayer?” The answer is through the baptism of the Holy Spirit, or the prayer language of the Holy Spirit. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 14:14, “If I pray in tongues, my spirit prays, but my mind (my understanding) is unfruitful.”

In other words, when I pray in tongues, I feel better. I feel built up and edified, but I don’t have any understanding of what I’ve said. Well, that’s because when you pray in tongues, you’re not praying to man… You’re praying to God with the Holy Spirit’s help, so you don’t know what you’re saying.

Paul also said in conclusion, “What will I do? I will pray with the Spirit and with the understanding also” (1 Corinthians 14:15). So, in other words, after a person prays in the spirit (tongues), then they are to follow it by praying in their own language so that God, through the interpretation, can speak back to them with new ideas, concepts, and innovative ways of doing things.

Now, that’s why I call the Holy Spirit and praying in the Spirit (tongues) the believer’s secret weapon. Yes, that’s right… Every Christian, every believer has the Holy Spirit inside them.

The Holy Spirit is a person, and a person speaks!

He not only knows God’s will for us, but He also knows all of our hurts, needs, and all of those things that seem to be bottled up inside us. And when we pray in tongues by allowing Him to speak through us, all that is there gets released out of us and to Him. Then when we pray in our own language, we get God’s response (His will) back to us.

Partner, praying in tongues is the most effective way of praying that I have ever found. It’s the Bible way of praying and getting answers.

When you’re hurting…when you don’t know what to say on your own…when the right words you feel so deep inside just won’t come out… then you can pray in the spirit at will (or whenever you want to). Then, when you pray in your own language, you can begin to get God’s direction for your life. I tell you, it’s the most powerful way that I’ve ever discovered.

Paul said in1 Corinthians 14:18 and 14:5, “I pray in tongues more than you all, and I wish you did too.” Notice, he didn’t make it a requirement or a commandment. A Christian won’t miss heaven if they don’t speak in tongues. But God has given us the rich privilege to allow the Holy Spirit to speak through us whenever we need Him to. If you have never prayed in tongues but would like to, our prayer partners are here to pray with you to receive this powerful gift from God!

Now, there’s so much more I want to share with you about the power of the Holy Spirit in us to help us live God’s abundant life (John 10:10). That’s why I mentioned earlier that at the close of this letter I had something special for you…and here it is!

Just before I left the USA on this trip, Lindsay and I sat down in our studio and recorded a very special teaching on the Holy Spirit and praying in tongues. And I want to offer it to you right now…

The CD goes into much more detail than I have time for in this letter. There was a very powerful anointing upon my wife and me as we talked together. As you listen to this powerful teaching, I believe you’ll receive much more detail about how the Holy Spirit works in us to change things for our good.

You’ll even hear about a recent article in the media that explains why speaking in tongues is a great communication system with God. It’s a fantastic article, and it will give you some tremendous scientific proof of how the lobes of the brain are quiet when a person speaks in tongues. Really, this report is particularly amazing. And believe it or not, it appeared in the New York Times.

I believe this CD, which I have called The Holy Spirit: God’s Power in You, will be a great blessing to you and to your dear ones. I really hope that you request your copy today. For any seed-faith gift into this healing ministry this month, I will send it to you.

Request yours today, and as you listen to it and study it, I pray it builds you up in faith to expect the Lord to open up a new understanding and ways to get God’s firsthand direction for your life.

Just use your prayer sheet that I have enclosed to let me know you want the CD. And when you do that, be sure to get your prayer requests back to me too, just as soon as possible, because I can’t wait to pray for you. It’s always a privilege and honor to hear from you and to stand with you in faith, believing for God to meet your needs.

Also, let me challenge you to sow your very best gift this month to help me in the ministry. Recently in prayer, the Lord told me that I would be hearing from some friends and partners who have not communicated with me in a long time, and that they would once again connect to this healing ministry. I believe that is just more evidence that God is working through this ministry to touch lives all around the world. And you are a part of helping people receive the healing Word of God!

I’m praying that I will hear from you very soon also. I really want to get this CD, The Holy Spirit: God’s Power in You, into your hands. Please take the time to respond to this letter, and know that I am lifting you up to the Lord each and every day.

Your partner for miracles,

Richard

 PS. No matter what you’re facing, you can take it on in faith with God’s secret weapon…the Holy Spirit. When you’re hurting and you don’t know what to do, He is able to give you God’s power for whatever you’re up against, and He has answers to bring you through to the other side. That’s why I am urging you to request my new CD, The Holy Spirit: God’s Power in You, which is filled with scriptural teaching on how the Holy Spirit is God’s secret weapon for our lives. I pray and believe it will be a blessing to you now and for the days ahead.

Thank you again for being my partner and for standing with me in all God has called me to do in this healing ministry. I am really grateful for your prayers and your support. Thank you so very much for your special seed-faith gift this month too. God bless you!

Mid-July Letter

Dear Partner,

I greet you today with all my love and prayers. My heart and my faith are reaching out to you today, believing and expecting good things for you from our Lord Jesus Christ.

As I write this letter to you, I am once again in the airport waiting on a delayed flight. I guess that’s not something that Peter and Paul and the other disciples had to face. Ha ha!

Actually, I’m on my way to Fort Worth, Texas, to be a guest on Kenneth and Gloria Copeland’s TV programs…then on to Tennessee for Brother Norvel Hayes’ annual summer camp meeting. As I am waiting, I am writing this letter to you and all my other friends and partners … You are never far from my mind or prayers!

You know, it’s amazing how God can drop something in your lap when you’re obedient to Him…

Just the other night, Lindsay and I and our girls went to a baseball game. We were given tickets right behind first base, on the field level. In the first inning, a couple of 90-mile-an-hour foul balls zoomed by our heads, and we knew it was much too dangerous to sit in those seats.

So, we all moved up to the top of the section where it was much safer.

Wouldn’t you know it? Just as we sat down, here came a foul ball above our heads. It bounced off the section above us and rolled around. When I looked up to see it, the ball literally fell right into my hand. I mean, I didn’t even have to reach out. It just fell into my hands.

Let me say it again… It’s amazing how God can drop something in your lap when you’re obeying Him.

But it doesn’t usually come on our schedule or timetable. Since He’s God, He has His own timetable…and His timetable is perfect.

Sometimes, we think God is slow. Perhaps He takes His time so that we can be in a better position. I know this… He’s not always quick. And He never seems to allow His plans in our lives to be hurried. You see, He knows the rest of the story.

He wasn’t in a hurry with Abraham. He took His time to bring forth Isaac, the promised son. Perhaps He was preparing Abraham for all He wanted to do through him.

He was certainly not in a hurry with Joseph. In fact, He waited until the time was just right before He brought Joseph out of prison to make him the prime minister of Egypt and to watch every dream that Joseph had dreamed fulfilled in the presence of his own family.

When I was a kid, I couldn’t wait until my birthday came. It seemed like the days were so long. But do you know what? My birthday always came…every year.

I was talking to a TV station owner the other day. He’s involved in a building project that, according to his calendar, is way behind schedule. He told me that he had been so impatient…and the Lord told him that impatience is an affront to God!

Some of the building plans this man was using turned out to be off track… And he had to wait for several other groups to come forward and do their part.

As it turns out, everything is being done on God’s timetable. The man told me that if the project had been finished according to his timetable, it would have been all wrong. But now…on God’s timetable…it’s going to be great.

Remember, Moses also got ahead of God. And because of it, he wandered the desert for 40 years, until he was ready to be used by God to bring deliverance to the children of Israel and to bring their release out of Egyptian bondage.

Waiting on the Lord is so hard. Yet the scripture says in Isaiah 40:31, But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

It seems that so many of us have what I call “fainting spells” just waiting on God. But the Bible says that we should hold onto the confession of our faith and not give up, for His plans for us are good and not for evil (Hebrews 10:23; Jeremiah 29:11).

You see, God knows it all, while we only see the temporal. We only see through a glass darkly—or through a darkened glass (1 Corinthians 13:12). But if we will set our faith like a flint (Isaiah 50:7) and not let our eyes wander away from Him, I believe we’ll begin to know that He has the exact timetable for the miracles we need.

I’ve often asked God the “why” question, and He never seems to answer. He just tells me to trust Him.

Partner, are you trusting Him?

You say, “But wait a minute, Richard. You don’t know what I’m going through and how long I’ve waited.”

Well, the Bible says in Galatians 6:9, And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not faint…or lose heart. That means if you don’t give up. That means to hold onto your faith until the miracle comes.

Now, you could easily say, “I don’t want to wait on God. I want it my way, and I want it now.” Good luck with that! My experience tells me there’s no way that is going to work out in your favor. And by the way, there’s no favor for you in trying to work things out in your own way.

God’s timing is perfect! And although He may seem slow at times, He’s always right on time.

Remember, patience is a virtue. Possess it if you can. For as a poet once said, it is seldom found in a woman and hardly ever found in a man. Yet we must learn it, because as Hebrews 6:12 says, it is through faith and patience that we inherit the promises of God.

How patient is the farmer? He plants his crops…and he has to wait, wait, wait an entire season for the harvest. But the harvest always comes.

And I’m setting my faith right now with you that your harvest will come too, as you trust God and wait upon Him.

In fact, right now I want you to take out the prayer sheet that I’ve enclosed with this letter. Please take it out and write down the miracles that you truly need from God… I mean, the things that you absolutely have to have from Him. Write them down and send them to me just as quickly as possible.

You see, I want to stand with you in faith and believe God with you for strength and endurance and confidence as you trust Him for miracles. You don’t have to stand in your faith alone. I’m here to pray a prayer of agreement with you, expecting miracles according to Matthew 18:19–20, which says, If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.

Let’s agree together…and expect Jesus to be there with us in prayer and faith, working in your behalf!

Also, be sure to sow a generous seed-faith offering for the Lord through this healing ministry. Your seed is so precious to me, and it sets the tone for you to release your faith and believe God for miracles! Thank you for sowing, especially now, this summer.

I appreciate hearing from you, and I’m looking forward to hearing from you very soon. Be looking for my next letter! I have something very special to offer you… I pray it will be a blessing to you.

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

Your partner for miracles,

Richard

 

PS. I can’t tell you enough how blessed I am to have your partnership in this ministry! It’s people like you who make it possible to reach out to our world with the saving, healing, delivering miracles that Jesus came to bring us. Thank you for your prayers, your seed-faith giving, your support… We are continuing to change lives because of you!

So, when you send in your prayer requests, remember I’m praying for you every day. I’m thanking God for you. And I’m standing with you in faith for the miracles you need. I’m believing for your harvest to come in the way you need it most, in Jesus’ mighty name!

July Letter

Dear Partner,

It is always a joy to write to you and all my other partners and friends each month. I’ve just returned from Honduras in Central America where I ministered to 800 pastors and leaders from many, many churches.

It was a very powerful three days. And as I told you before…this is part of my healing call from God. As my partner, you are a part of it too… And I believe God is laying it to your account with Him!

When I got home, I was called to the emergency room of a local hospital to pray for a woman who was having severe chest pain. This particular hospital is a level one trauma center, and the emergency room was full. Ambulances were bringing in patients constantly.

There was a feeling of fear and anxiety in the room. Gunshot and stabbing victims were being wheeled by… and of course, the doctors were tending them first as they should have.

I waited with my friend, and as her chest pain continued, I just continued to pray in tongues, believing God for a miracle. I tell you, the atmosphere was so heavy with all the sickness and accident victims in that room that you could really feel the oppression.

The nurses were doing the best they could under the circumstances. And the hours passed as we waited…

Then GRACE walked in.

A nurse walked over to us. She was about five feet tall and acted like she knew exactly what to do. She said her name was Grace. Now, “grace” means UNMERITED FAVOR. The nurse’s demeanor brought a calmness and peace, and it swept over me.

After the test results came back, there was NOTHING WRONG with my friend’s heart or breathing! We just rejoiced and gave thanks to the Lord for a miracle!

Now let’s get back to grace…God’s unmerited (or unearned) favor. The grace of God came into that emergency room and changed everything.

Second Corinthians 9:8 says, God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. God’s grace toward us is powerful, and it CHANGES our lives for the better!

You see, God in His great love shows you and me His unmerited favor. We don’t have to work for it. Freely, out of His love, He provides for us in every circumstance.

So, when you’re hurting, feeling low, like maybe nobody cares… When you feel like you’ve done all you can do and you still can’t seem to get well… When your finances seem to be in shambles and you don’t know how you’re going to make it… That’s when you need the grace of God to walk in.

There’s a story about God’s grace showing up to change lives in Luke chapter 7. A widow’s only son had died, and it looked like her whole world was gone.

First, her husband had died. Now, her only son, who had been her provider, had also died. What would she do? Surely, she must have felt it was all over for her…

Then GRACE walked in.

Jesus and His disciples and the crowd following Him entered the city at the same time the widow and her family and friends were leading a funeral procession to the graveyard. Jesus saw her and immediately saw the need. God’s Son, the favored one who had come to preach, teach and heal, saw this widow and knew something needed to be done.

The Bible says He felt compassion toward her. Now, compassion is not, “I’m so sorry, I wish I could help.” No, compassion is an irresistible urge to REMOVE the problem… I mean, to get rid of it. That’s exactly what Jesus felt.

What did He do? He walked over to what the Bible calls the “bier”—or, the stand on which the body of the dead son lay—and He touched it (Luke 7:14).

Actually, He did something much stronger than just touching the stand. The Greek word indicated that He GRABBED it.

Now, grabbing something is different than just touching it. Grabbing means holding it strongly and not letting go. The indication in the Scripture is that Jesus grabbed the stand that held the body and REFUSED TO LET GO UNTIL THERE WAS A MIRACLE.

Then, He spoke to the body of the widow’s son and said, “Arise! Get up!”

Suddenly, life and breath came rushing back into the boy’s body and he was raised from the dead. Then Jesus presented him to his mother…alive, well, and healed right in front of the crowd of people.

Now, to me, that really settles the issue of how God feels about anything that you may be going through. He wants to grab hold of YOUR problem and bring life back into YOUR situation.

Just as Ephesians 2:7 says, I believe He desires to show the exceeding riches of His gracein His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. I believe that means His saving, healing, delivering, restoring, increasing, abundant, life-giving power can come into every circumstance you may face!

With you, it may be something physical in your body…or it may be something in your finances that needs to come back to life…or maybe it’s spiritual and you feel like you’re a million miles away from God…or maybe it’s in your family and you need God to restore and repair broken relationships.

Partner, whatever it is that you need right now, the same compassion Jesus felt that day is now rising up in me to pray for you! That same compassion makes me want to rise up, grab hold of your circumstances, and pray until the problem stops… until the pain and hurting are gone… until the sickness and disease are healed… to believe with you for God to bring you the financial blessing and healing you need and to let you know that He loves you deeply because you are His own.

Believe me, I’ve been seeing a lot of these kinds of miracles lately… such as this one from Janice in New York. She had what’s called Barrett’s Esophagus, a precancerous condition brought on by years of acid reflux.

Her doctor told her it was irreversible. (Now, surely someone must have told the widow of Nain that her son’s death was irreversible too.) But Janice came to my healing service in New York City, and GOD’S GRACE walked in the room.

Janice said,

“I felt such PEACE as Richard Roberts preached the Word of God. Then he laid his hands on me and prayed for my healing. Even though I didn’t feel an immediate change in my body, I went into an agreement with his prayer. A few months later, I had a series of medical tests done. All the results came back negative, no sign of the disorder in my body at all. My doctor said I was fine. I praised the Lord all the way home.”

You see, when I laid my hands on Janice and prayed a healing prayer, I was literally GRABBING HOLD of the sickness in her body and REFUSING TO LET GO UNTIL A MIRACLE CAME, the same way Jesus did in Luke chapter 7.

Notice that some time passed between my healing prayer and Janice’s doctor saying the disorder was completely gone. During that time, I refused to let go of my faith for Janice’s complete healing…and she refused to let go of my “grabbing prayer.” And she received the miracle she asked God for!

Now, I want to pray for YOU just like Jesus did for the widow that day in the city of Nain. I want to pray a “GRABBING HOLD OF IT” prayer for you, just like I did for Janice in New York City.

I want to do that for you, but I can’t unless I know what the need is. That’s why I’ve enclosed a special prayer sheet with your letter. I want to know exactly what you want me to grab hold of in prayer.

Please let me do this on your behalf. Praying for your needs is part of my healing call to you and all of my other friends and partners. Take your prayer sheet at this time, and write down your deepest needs and concerns. Be sure to include ANYTHING you’re believing God for.

Let me pray a “GRABBING HOLD OF IT PRAYER” for you and your loved ones. I really can’t wait to do this…to lay my hands upon your name and needs, grab hold of the problem by faith, and believe God with you for a miracle.

Remember, 1 Timothy 1:4 tells us that God’s grace is exceedingly abundant. And James 4:6 says He gives us more grace when we need it! God has more than enough to meet your needs… So, let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16). Let’s turn to Him and agree together for your needs to be met!

You know, healing prayer has always been the central part of this ministry. It’s something that I really love to do and am called to do. So please, I’m asking you to give me the opportunity to grab hold of your situation by faith and join you in believing for God’s miracles in your life.

Now, just one more thing…

I’m conducting a healing crusade in three cities in the United Kingdom. And of course, I’m planning other healing meetings and expanding the ministry in every way possible to get God’s Word and miracle power to everyone I can reach.

My team and I will be flying to the UK very soon… And I really need your help. This crusade is not part of my regular budget; it’s above and beyond. But the people want me to come to the United Kingdom and to lay my hands upon them and pray the prayer of faith for God’s healing power to flow. I’m going there by faith… And I’m not stopping there…

I’m ministering everywhere I can! I’m ministering on television and the internet and through every media form to get God’s Word to you and those in need. I’m expanding the School of MiraclesExciting things are happening, and you are a part of the rewards, because you are my partner.

So, here’s what I’m asking you. Would you please pray about helping me by sowing your best seed-faith gift this month?

You know, without special help from partners like you, I really couldn’t do that much for the Lord. I’m depending on the Lord to speak into your heart and to lead you to help me financially. With your help, I believe I can make a strong impact for the Lord in the United Kingdom and around the world.

So, I’ll ask again… Will you help me? Will you pray and sow your best seed-faith gift this month?

Thanks so much for praying about it and obeying the Lord as He leads you to sow seed into the work of His kingdom.

And remember, I am here for you and your needs too! Be sure and get your prayer sheet back to me just as quickly as you can. I’ll be waiting to pray a grabbing prayer over all your needs.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

 

Your partner for miracles,

Richard

 

PS. Thanks so very much for praying for the UK healing crusade and every other outreach of this healing ministry. Very soon, I and my team will arrive in England and Wales in the United Kingdom to minister to the needs of the people. So, please pray for us!

And please sow your seed to help this ministry continue to minister on TV, the internet, and all our other ways of sharing Jesus. I really appreciate your help expanding our outreaches in every way we can until Jesus returns. Blessings!
