Sample text

I'd been on a three-month drunk when one of the AA members came in and threw down Oral Roberts' book, Miracle of Seed-Faith, and said, "Read this. " Then she walked out. That is not the way AA people usually handle alcoholics, but I think I had tested their patience. The first time I wrote to Oral Roberts I was drunk, and I told him so. What was so beautiful to me was that he accepted me the way I was. All the other people I knew wanted me to straighten up and be good, and then they would accept me.

That's why I have written this message of hope for you. Even though you may be telling yourself that no hope exists, I know that it does. And I want to help you. If you need deliverance from alcohol, there IS hope for you ... because God wants to set you free. Jesus said, "I am come that [you] might have life, and that [you] might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10). This is God's highest wish for you: to save you, to deliver you, and to give you abundant life (see 3 John 2). So let me begin by sharing with you a story filled with hope, and with the goodness of God.

Nobody had ever told me about the love, joy, and peace, and that Jesus loves me and that He came and died for people like me. So I didn't make it right away. I'd call the Prayer Tower at Oral Roberts University in the middle of the night and say, "I can't hack it! I can't stand it! " One night I got hold of a prayer partner who said, "You stop that right now. Yes, you can make it. " Those prayer partners accepted me as I was. And so did Jesus. I turned to Him and asked Him to forgive my sins and come into my life as my Lord and Savior.
