Prayer Requests

LRHi.  I’m Lindsay Roberts.  And I’m on the campus live right now from Oral Roberts University.  And I want to tell you, it is a beautiful day here at the Prayer Tower.  A couple of days ago it was 46 degrees.  It was windy.  It was pouring rain, and now we’ve got a beautiful sunny day here on Oral Roberts University campus.

And we want to tell you, this is the day that the Lord has made, and we’re going to go into the Prayer Tower and we’re going to begin to pray for you.  So stay tuned because we’re going to be right back.

LR: Okay, we want to make sure you get this book, Overcoming Stress.  I’m going to give you a toll-free number.  And since I can’t read it up on the screen, I’m going to read it off this piece of paper—866-870-6932, 866—that’s toll-free—870-6932.

I want you to get this book as my gift to you.  First of all, I want the privilege of planting seed into your life.  And second of all, I believe this book can help you.

And I remember so vividly one day I was working on this, and how I felt overwhelmed and how I felt like, “Okay, this is crazy!  I’m stressed out over a stress book.”  And I realized, you know what?  Sometimes we can get stressed out over the silliest things.  But left unchecked, those silly things can get bigger and bigger and bigger.

I remember having a sermon one time where I took a little tiny piece of Saran wrap, just plastic wrap, and left by itself, it’s basically harmless.  But if you let that Sarah wrap wrap you up round and round and round and round, pretty soon you’re completely bound up and wrapped up in something that may have been very harmless at first.  But the more you give in to it and the more it wraps itself around you, the less able you are to move around and hear the Word of God and act on the Word of God.

And I realized that stress is a real live thing that is overwhelming people today.  So this says, “Are you pressured, stressed, frustrated?  Take charge of the negative situations.”  Don’t let them take charge of you.  You take charge of the negative situations that attack you.  Overcome them with the Word of God.”  It’s my gift to you.  I want to give it to you.  All you have to do is go to the website at makeyourdaycount.com, or 866-870-6932.

You know, we’ve been talking about doing this program live, and we’re live right now.  It’s a little after two o’clock Tulsa time.  That’s Central Time.  And it’s Wednesday afternoon.  And we’ve been getting prayers from the Abundant Life Prayer Group, prayer requests, as well as praise reports.

And this one called in, and the precious lady called in right when we went off the air on our program yesterday.  And she said she called the Abundant Life Prayer Group for her daughter’s pregnancy, and she was having complications.  Immediately after prayer, they called us right back and said the granddaughter delivered a healthy baby boy named Nathan.  Praise the Lord for that.

Debbie called the Abundant Life Prayer Group for loneliness and depression.  And she said her daughter had told them that she was always praying for other people, but God had never dealt with the depression in her life because she had never given it to God.

So she called for prayer, and they all began to ask and believe God for His intervention.  After prayer, she called back to say God gave her her joy.  The depression was gone.  The loneliness is gone, and she said, “I just want you all to know I am praising the Lord.”  Well, we are praising the Lord with you.

This lady called in and said her son-in-law Lee was diagnosed with cancer in his neck and called the Abundant Life Prayer Group for prayer.  After prayer, he had surgery, went through treatment.  And the doctors came back and said, “We want to stop the treatment.  There is absolutely no need for the treatment.  You are cancer-free.”  Praise the Lord for that!

We’ve had lots and lots of different praise reports.  But right now I want to stop, and I want to do two things.  We talked yesterday, if you remember, about Malachi 3, where it said, “Bring all the tithe and offering into the storehouse.”  Bring the tithe and offering in the place you’re being fed.

And then it said, “Prove me now,” God said, “see if I’ll not open you the windows of heaven, pour you out a blessing where there’s not room enough to receive it all, and I will rebuke the devourer for your sake.”

Your tithe and your offering is completely connected to God rebuking the devourer for your sake.  Why is that?  I don’t know.  That’s what God wrote.  He said when you bring the tithe in, He would open you the windows of heaven, pour you out a blessing where there’s not room enough to receive it, and rebuke the devourer for your sake.  That’s the way God set it up.

So I want to show you what people have been doing as a result of that.  They’ve been specifically naming their seed for a specific harvest, just as Malachi was saying.

In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, this precious woman called in and sowed $200 to believe God for her healing.  Now is she trying to buy a miracle?  Well, I don’t think they’re for sale.  And if they are, I’m not sure what you’d charge—like what’s a cold cost?  What’s cancer cost?  That’s not how God set it up.  He said, “When you bring your tithe as offering and seed unto God, he would open the windows of heaven, pour out a blessing where there’s not room enough to receive it, and rebuke the devourer for our sake.”  And that’s what this precious woman is doing.  (Reading names)

In Ohio, $25 seed for financial miracles.  You know, that seems so, to the world’s system, to the natural system, seems so silly.  When you need finances, why would you give what finances you have?  Because God said very clearly in Luke 6:38, when you give it would be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.  And I believe the Bible.  I believe the Word of God.

So if you want to plant a seed, if you’d like information about that, call the Abundant Life Prayer Group, 918-495-7777.  Or you can write Richard Roberts and Lindsay Roberts, Tulsa, OK 74102. In fact, if we go to a Living Proof right now, while we’re doing that, I want to go into the Abundant Life Prayer Group, where we’re going to stand with those prayer partners and begin to pray for you.  So stay tuned because we’re going to be right back.

LP:  Abner Torres, Orlando, FL

BRAD: With some 50 million tourists each year, Orlando is one of the world’s top vacation spots.  In fact, only Las Vegas tops Orlando when it comes to US cities with the most hotel rooms.  That’s where Abner Torres comes in.  He owns an employment agency here in Orlando where he finds jobs for people mostly in the hotel and service industry.

AT: I’m sending you a qualified person just right now, one that you need right now.

BRAD: Not long ago though, Abner’s livelihood and life came to a screeching halt after he had a bad fall in his home.

AT:

And when I fell down on the floor, suddenly I could not move.  From the lower part down, I couldn’t move anything.  It was a very bad fall because I wasn’t able to move nothing, nothing.  I couldn’t even move not even my feet or my toes, nothing.

The ambulance came and took me to Florida Hospital.  And there they did some testing.

BRAD: The doctor told Abner that he twisted his back, injuring the nerves in his lower spine.  He then told Abner he would never walk again.

AT: I kind of didn’t believe that, but then I asked another opinion from another doctor.  And the other doctor said the same thing, I would never walk again.

BRAD: Doctors at the hospital told Abner an operation was his only chance to restore any feeling or movement to his legs and feet.  But Abner said doctors gave him no guarantees.

AT: The doctor said I had to go for an operation.  And the doctor said, “We’ll give you a 30 percent of recovering, just 30 percent after the operation.”  They wanted to break my spine again and be able to put things together again.  But he would not give me a promise on that.  He said, “You might have a 30 percent chance.”

BRAD:
Abner didn’t like the odds he was given.  But without the operation, he knew he’d need a miracle if he was to ever walk again.

So one night from his hospital bed, he was flipping through the channels and came across The Hour of Healing.

AT: Every night what I would do, I would put the TV on on Oral Roberts.

RR: In the authority of Jesus’ name, I pray the prayer of faith.  Now listen to me.  Let me give you the Bible tonight.  The Bible says, “The prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise them up.”

AT: He talked about the healing, you know, God’s healing, you know,

He’s the only person that you can go to.  So that gave me like more strength, you know, when I heard him talking.

BRAD: Abner also called in and had a prayer cloth sent to him.

AT: I use to put the prayer cloth that they send me, and I put it on my back and my legs.

BRAD: He watched Richard and Lindsay for several nights from his hospital bed, when he decided to call the Abundant Life Prayer Group.

AT: When I called them, I started feeling a little warm on me and I started moving my toes, then moving my legs.  So I said, “Thank God, you know, I’m getting healed,” you know.  And then I started thanking God and praising the Lord, you know.  And I know that God was healing me, you know, because I started moving my legs.

BRAD: The next day, Abner couldn’t wait to show his doctor how he could move his legs and feet.

AT: The doctor came again, and asked me, you know, how I feel.  But I told him, you know, that I was starting to move a little bit, you know.  And he said to me, “You will never walk again.  I’m sorry to tell you.”

BRAD: Abner though refused to be discouraged, and little by li0ttle he kept getting more feeling and movement in his legs.  A month later he could walk with a walker.  Six months after that, he started walking all by himself.  And today Abner says his legs and back are healed by God.

AT: It’s a miracle!  It’s a miracle.  It’s a miracle!  I couldn’t even stand up.  I thank God for this ministry.  That program gave me courage and hope.  That was the only hope I had because I had nobody else to turn to.  The doctor could not do nothing for me.  The doctor gave me no alternative.  The doctor gave me no alternative whatsoever.

The only source that I would have is the man upstairs, the healing for man, Jesus.  When man says no, God says yes.
