Begun in 1947 by Oral Roberts, the ministry continues today through his son, Richard Roberts, and involves a many-faceted ministry. What started as tent crusades in the United States has grown to an internationally televised ministry; international healing rallies; medical missions; the School of Miracles; teaching books, CDs, and DVDs; and the Abundant Life Prayer Group.
The Abundant Life Prayer Group (ALPG) is one of the primary ways that Oral Roberts Ministries connects with its partners and new friends. Since 1958, the ALPG has been praying 24 hours a day, seven days a week for the needs of everyone who calls. To date, we have received more than 22 million calls for prayer and tens of thousands of healing testimonies.
