Confessing, Believing, and Receiving by Richard Roberts

Confessing, Believing, and Receiving by Richard Roberts

 

Hi, I’m Roberta Roberts Potts. Growing up as Oral Roberts’ daughter has been interesting in a lot of ways. I’ve seen a lot of people get healed. I used to sit on a chair in the crusades and watch people as they walked across the platform. Some of them would scream at the top of their lungs that they had been healed. Some of them would run off the platform and you’d never see them again, they were so excited that they got healed.

 

And ever since then I’ve had such a feeling in my heart to pray for people that were sick. I think sometimes that sick people are the loneliest people in the world because no one wants to touch them. It seems that when you’re sick, you’re not part of the human race any more. People don’t seem to care any more. But I want you to know something. Here at the City of Faith we do care about you. We care that you’re sick.

 

And did you know that Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil? Sometimes when I got in the room it seems that people have a spirit of giving up, that they are just going to accept what the devil has put on them. But, you know, I don’t remember a time in the scriptures when Jesus went up to a leper and said, “Now you’re going to have to accept the leprosy.” He never did that. He said, “Be thou made whole.” And that’s what we’re expecting here at the City of Faith.

 

I come to the City of Faith to pray for people not because I’m Oral Roberts’ daughter, not because I’m Richard Roberts’ sister, but because I feel I have a special calling on my life to pray for people. There are so many hurting people out there. I want you to know that we love you here at the City of Faith. When you come we will pray with you and we will believe for a miracle in Jesus’ name.)

 

That was my sister and what Roberta said about the City of Faith is so true. The City of Faith is a place where prayer and medicine are working together and our family, the Roberts family, care about the people at the City of Faith and we take our time…. we make the time to pray for patients at the City of Faith. And Roberta is attending law school here at Oral Roberts University and, in fact, she just finished her final examinations a couple of days ago, Lindsay, and I appreciate what she’s doing and the people here at the City of Faith appreciate it too.

 

And I’d like to say a word to you if you have a need to come to the City of Faith. There are two telephone numbers you can call for an appointment. Now it’s very important….. Dr. Winslow was on the program the other day and he was emphasizing how important it is for a person to phone and make an appointment. Some people have just come to Tulsa and walked into the City of Faith and said, “I’m here,” and we did not have an opportunity to get the medical records and to set up an appointment and to serve you in the way that you ought to be served.

 

And we want to treat you right and the best way to do that is for you to call and make an appointment. The number is area code 918-495-7777. No, that’s the Abundant Life Prayer Group. It’s 493-8000 or 493-8181. I’m so used to giving the Abundant Life Prayer Group number. I’ll give you that number again in a minute but the clinic appointment numbers are 493-8181 and 493-8000. There are testimonies here that I want to share with you, Lindsay and Cheryl. Cheryl, welcome back. You’ve been out ministering in cities across the country. Welcome back.

The doctors and the prayer by Richard Roberts

The doctors and the prayer by Richard Roberts

 

Hello, everybody. Welcome to the City of Faith Health-Care Center. We’ve been doing our program this week out in front of the City of Faith and behind me you can see the beautiful hands, the healing hands — the one hand representing the hand of prayer, the other hand representing the prayer… er the uh…. come on, Richard, talk. One hand representing the hand of prayer, the other hand representing the hand of medicine.

 

The doctors and the prayer of faith joined together. The Bible says, “The prayer of faith shall save the sick person and the Lord will raise him up.” God put his stamp of approval on prayer. The Bible also says, “They that are sick need a physician.” God put his stamp of approval on medical science. And here at the City of Faith they are being joined together and I’ll tell you, the City of Faith is a place where miracles are happening every day.

 

I’m excited, especially to be out here in this beautiful Oklahoma sunshine and it’s not even too windy today. But who knows? The wind may pick up before this program is over. My special guests today are Dr. Charles Allen who has been the minister, the senior minister, at First United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas,

 

He’s been in the ministry for many more years than that. He’s a prolific author and he’s written more than 38 books and probably one of the best preachers known in this country. All across America you hear the name Dr. Charles Allen. And Cheryl Prewitt is back with us today. And my dad, Oral Roberts, is a guest on our program today. How do you like that? I get to have him as a guest on my program. He’s had me on his program for many years and so we get to turn that around today and he’ll be with us in a few
minutes.

 

Right now the Oral Roberts University Singers are going to join me in song. Lindsay is also with us on the program today and I’m expecting something good to happen to you. But before we sing this song, I want to say to you this. The Abundant Life Prayer Group is on duty right now ready to receive your call, your prayer requests, and to pray. And when they pray, they will send your requests to me and I will hold your name and your needs before the Lord and I will pray and I will write you back.

 

So some time during this program pick up your phone and call area code 918-495-7777. That’s the Abundant Life Prayer Group. They’re on duty over at the Abundant Life Prayer Group and back in the television studio, they’re there. And there are more than 60 prayer partners waiting to serve you. They’re there right now. You can call area 918-495-7777 and we’ll pray over your needs and we’ll expect God to turn things around in your life.

And I’m expecting that to happen to you. I’m really expecting. Terry, God bless you. My best to Shirley. The next time I want you to bring Shirley with you. Take this, take these words with you all day long till we see you tomorrow, no matter what it looks like God can turn it around for you.

God’s turning it around by Richard Roberts

we_have_authority_sickness

 

God gave me a new wife, Richard. I got a new wife. Her name is Shirley. We’re happily married. We’ve got five children. There’s so many exciting things happening. God turned it around and He’s turning it around for the people right now.

 

You had two children of your own Three, I had three of my own. And Shirley had two. And now you have five. And God turned it around. I received a with a letter. I didn’t receive a woman. I received a letter from a woman yesterday who said, “God turned it around when I turned around for Him.” (Amen) And, friend, you just turned around for God.

 

And if you meant it with your heart, Jesus has entered your heart and you’ll never be the same again. Oh, I thank God. I thank God. I pray this in the name of Jesus, and let everybody say amen. (Amen) And amen. Praise God. I want to minister this healing song to you right now.

 

Singing “Healing Hands.” His hands are healing hands, friend, and they’re reaching out to you today. Receive the miracle touch of Jesus. Receive the touch of Jesus in your life. If you’ve just accepted Jesus as your personal Savior, I urge you, pick up your telephone. Call the Abundant Life Prayer Group.

And I pray for you by Richard Roberts

God's Rescue Plan

 

And, friend, I stretch out my hands to you today to pray. I come against that thing that’s attacking you. I come against the fear. God has not given you the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. I come against that fear, that fear that has come to attack your faith. I pray in the name of Jesus for you to be healed. I demand that the fear leave you and I pray for the faith that God has placed inside you and, yes, friend, you have all the faith you’re ever going to need.

 

What you need to do now is to take that faith and let it go to God. I
pray for that fear, that fear to be cast out of your life and for you to be healed today and for you to know, to know, to know that the fear is gone. I come against the discouragement. You may be so discouraged in your life that you say, well what’s the use? What’s the use? Friend, there is a use.

 

God has something for you to do. God’s not finished with you yet. And I pray for you today to be healed, to be healed, from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet. I speak to the sickness and disease in your body. I’ve given a number of words of knowledge today. Terry has. Lindsay has. I know God is confirming His Word with
miracles.

 

I pray for you. I’m called of God to pray for you. I didn’t start this program just to come out here and sit in front of the City of Faith just to see what subjects Terry and I or Lindsay and I could talk about. That’s not why we’re here. We’re here because of the healing power of God.

 

today and I focus my faith in on your needs. Someone is receiving a healing in your ear and also pain on the right side of your neck is being healed right now. I focus my faith. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray for you to be delivered today. For those of you who have some habit in your life that you want to give up.

 

Maybe there’s something in your life you’d like to give up. I’m not talking about something that’s going to send you to hell. I’m just talking about there’s something in your life you’d like to give up. Maybe you’d like to give up cigarette smoking like that woman whose letter I read. Maybe you’d like to give up alcohol. Maybe you’re on drugs. Maybe there’s something. Maybe you’ve been lying. Maybe you’ve cheated somebody.

 

Maybe you’ve taken something that doesn’t belong to you. Maybe there’s something else. Maybe you’ve had a cross word with somebody and you feel like they owe you an apology but inside you know you need to be the one apologizing. I pray for you today. I pray for God to deliver you of that thing. And if there’s some situation in your life that you need to go and make right and you feel like someone else needs to start first, I pray that you’d do what I’ve made up my mind to do in those kind of situations, even when I feel that
someone has offended me or hurt me, that I’ll go to them.

 

I’ll go to them and ask them to forgive me. And, friend, when you do that, I believe that situation can begin to be healed. I really believe that. I’m expecting it in your life. I pray for those of you who have never accepted Christ as your personal Savior. Just lay your hand on yourself and pray this prayer out loud, as everyone prays this prayer. O Lord, be merciful to me a sinner. I’m a sinner, Lord, and I’m sorry. I repent. I change my mind. I turn my back on the sin. I confess it. I’m sorry. I receive Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. Save my soul. Fill me with Your Spirit. Put that joy in my life.

 

I receive Christ right now. Friend, if you’re praying this prayer and you mean it, I mean you’re sincere, Jesus is entering your heart and you’ll never be the same again. So many thousands of people have come to Jesus through this program. Oh, I praise God. I praise God. I praise God, Terry.
