Prayer, Plain and Simple

Evangelist Oral Roberts, died of complications from pneumonia today. Roberts conducted more than 300 healing crusades in over 35 countries on six continents and it is estimated that he has personally laid hands on more than two million people for healing prayer. As we acknowledge the passing of this faithful servant of God, let us offer prayer for the man who prayed for millions. Please join us in prayer for his family, friends, and every person who has ever been touched by his life and ministry.

Heavenly Father,

We thank you for the life and work of Granville Oral Roberts. Though we mourn his passing and the fact that he is absent in the body, we celebrate the fact that he is now present with you. We thank you for every life that he has touched through his ministry. We thank you for the institution, Oral Roberts University, that he founded and that has served as a hub for training some of the worlds most influential Christian leaders and thinkers. We thank you for giving him a rich life and we pray that his family and friends will remember that life. Be a comforter for those who are inconsolable. Be an encourager for those who are feeling discouraged. Be whatever and whoever you need to be for those who have been and will be impacted by this loss. Let every heart pray.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen 

Add your prayer…
