And what Lindsay Roberts was saying was, “I don’t have to touch Him.  If I can just get my hands on the Word of God, I will be healed.”

Now, look, you’re there where you are.  We’re here where we are.  But as my father would say, there is no distance in prayer.  God’s right here.  So when we speak a word here, He sends that word right to you where you are there.

The Roman centurion understood that.  He said, “You don’t have to come to heal my military aide.  You just send the word.”  Now there’s no way he could have known Psalm 107:20, “He sent his word and healed them and delivered them from their destruction.”

And maybe that’s why Jesus marveled when he said it because none of the other crowd seemed to catch on.  He said, “You don’t have to come.  You just speak the word.”  Richard Roberts said we don’t have to come where you are because Jesus is where we are, and He’s where you are tonight.  And Jesus sent the word, and his military aide was healed.

Well, this woman was saying, “If I can get my hands on the Word of God.”  Oral Roberts states that this preaching, this testimony that Cynthia just gave and Randy just gave and the worship, the music that Dino was playing, and the Bishop who’s coming on in a little while, that is all in preparation.  What Pastor Phil is doing tonight, that’s in preparation.  That’s the hearing of faith that’s building you up on the inside so that you can receive when the prayer of faith is prayed.
