Praying for all in Authority
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving
of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that
we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good
and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; I Timothy 2:1-3
The Sword is in the Land. Seated on the platform in late January, Lisa
and I were ministering on worldwide television and radio. As I was
speaking, I made a quick motion with my hand as if I was cutting the air
from left to right, and said, “The sword is in the land!” It was only a few
days later, on February 1st, the Space Shuttle Columbia began breaking apart as it
re-entered the atmosphere just west of Dallas/Fort Worth. All of the crew
perished. Three days after my wife Patti was thrown to the floor while I was
speaking and fractured her hip. Two days later she was in heaven. Later that
month, on the 23rd I sent JR and another person to speak in Joplin. While they
were in the air a snowstorm suddenly materialized. They couldn’t land and had to
return to McKinney. I spoke directly to JR, “You are done traveling.” I did anger
a spirit that day!
Patti’s Death. I battled with my faith the false anointing and its plagues in Patti
for years. This spirit was mean, hateful, accusing, and wanted to destroy me with
lies. Sometime in 2001 I had overcome that spirit and Patti became a very
humble, cordial, loving person. One evening as I was watching the news, she
walked by my chair, gave me a hug and said “Doyle, I thank God for your
believing and your prayers or we would have all gone to hell.” I knew that I’d
overcome that spirit.
I was making a television broadcast on February 4th, confronting and fighting
against a spirit while I was speaking. While doing this, that spirit threw my wife
Patti down on the floor in our home. She crawled to the telephone and called me.
I have had considerable experience with fractures, both with man and animal. I
immediately went home, picked her up, put her on the bed and called for an
ambulance. When they got there they tried to put her on a board, and very frankly
they were hurting her worse than you could imagine. I walked over in front of
them, picked her up and put her on the board myself. The pain lasted only a few
seconds. They took her on to the hospital. X-rays found the neck of her femur was fractured. The next thirty-six hours were touch and go. A blood clot had gonefrom the fracture to her lung, then to her heart. Kathy Mai and I were standing in her room with her. Patti opened her eyes, waved at us with her left hand “goodbye” two times and went to heaven. Kathy Mai said, “Did you see that hand?” I said, “Yes, I did.”
After Patti’s death I found in her makeup drawer written on a yellow notepad these scriptures:
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on
the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5:43-48)
Lord was I excited! I knew with my faith I had sanctified Patti and she was ready
to meet the Lord Jesus.
Praying for Our Country. God began leading me on a path that would have me
visit and pray for all 48 contiguous states. The Lord spoke to me by His Spirit in
October and told me to go to Dublin, Virginia. I had never been there and never
even knew the place existed. My thought was God was directing me to go there to
do a crusade. I did not know anyone there, but I was obedient to the Spirit. I
made reservations at the Holiday Inn and announced the scheduled meeting on
television and the Internet. Only one person came to that meeting besides my
traveling staff and I believe they drove 900 miles. At the time the meeting was to
start I asked that person if they prayed in tongues. They answered in the
affirmative, so we all began to pray. After about 45 minutes the Spirit of God
started talking to me about the state of Virginia. He revealed to me that politics,
finances and education, which included religious education, of the United States
had its origin in the state of Virginia by a spirit that came from Great Britain. I left
that meeting having had these revelations about our country and they have been
made clearer to me in the last few years. I began to see that God wanted me to
visit and pray for the Thirteen Colonies after that meeting. Later we went on to
pray for all of the states on the mainland. I also found my family, the Davidson’s
came in to the United States through Virginia.
By the end of this year we had visited and prayed in twenty-six states:
Texas Kansas Connecticut
Missouri Maine Delaware
Louisiana Ohio Philadelphia
Indiana Maryland New Hampshire
Colorado Washington DC Vermont
Tennessee Rhode Island Arkansas
Wisconsin Massachusetts Georgia
Virginia New Jersey South Carolina
North Carolina New York
The Death of Kenneth Hagin and Derek Prince. In the month of September
both Kenneth Hagin and Derek Prince died within five days of each other.
Kenneth Hagin died on the 19th and Derek Prince on the 24th. Both men had
rejected my ministry with letters in 1990.

fifty-five meetings this year lead by myself along with other apostles and prophets.
There were 21 meetings in Missouri, 32 in Tulsa, and 2 in South Bend.

WHME South Bend, Indiana in February, Far East TV (by Satellite) in June, and
WHMB Indianapolis, Indiana in December.

teaching tapes free of charge.
