SID: So the prophet Malachi says, “Just before the Messiah returns, Elijah is going to show up.” And I believe it’s the spirit of Elijah is going to show up. But tell me about the supernatural prayer of Elijah.

MIKE: Well Elijah stood on his own against 850 false prophets, and it was God’s time to bring revival in Israel. He prayed a prayer, again, that didn’t take a minute to say. But he said, “Oh Lord God, of Abraham and Isaac and Israel, let it be known this day that you are God in Israel. Let it be known that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant,” and this is key, “and that I have done these things according to your Word.” And then he said, “Lord God, let it be known that you are God, let these people know that you are God and that you have turned their hearts to you again.” Well a number of years ago, I was confronted with a situation where I was outnumbered, too. I was in India and preached to an audience of thousands and thousands of Hindus that, for the most part, had never heard the Gospel before. And I felt this tremendous pressure on me. In fact, toward the end of my message, it was almost like invisible hands were choking me, demonic hands, and I was having to force every word out. Right at the critical moment, a word of knowledge dropped in my spirit and God said, “Call for the deaf and tell them if what you preached is true, every deaf person will hear again. If what you preached is not true, they will not hear and they can throw you out of their city.” Well I didn’t know how critical it was that I respond to that word of knowledge. I didn’t know that behind the stage there were six Hindu men, radical Hindus. Now let me insert here that most Hindu people I find to be the most gentle, loving, tolerant people. Of all the cultures of the world, they’re one of the most gentle and tolerant cultures. But there’s radicals in every culture. And they were creeping up the stairwell with a sledgehammer. There was a big gate with a big padlock preventing break-ins. Well right when I made this call for the deaf, they brought seven deaf persons. Four were totally deaf, three were deaf in one ear. And immediately I got angry at any thought of easing my way into a miracle by praying for one of the ones with one deaf ear. I said, bring me somebody totally deaf. And they brought a 23-year-old young man who had been deaf for five years. I laid hands on him and started to pray, and as soon as I did that, I hear this crunching, crashing sound behind me, and it’s that sledgehammer hitting that padlock that finally clatters to the concrete. Six Hindu men come running in my direction with this fierce angry look on their faces. And I’m looking at them while I’m praying for him, and all of a sudden he jerks out of my hands and starts screaming, “I can hear! I can hear!” The crowd goes wild.

SID: Did you have any thought that he might not hear and that would be it?

MIKE: To be honest with you, yes. There was a war going on my mind, too. But all of a sudden, this group of Hindus stops dead in their tracks. Now remember, I had used an Elijah-like tactic. I said, “God has spoken to me. I’m doing this at his word that if the Gospel that I’m preaching is true, just like Elijah said, if the Lord be God and not Baal, then fire is going to fall from Heaven.” Well I said, “If the Lord Jesus Christ is your true savior, then these are going to be healed.” Now you’d better have a true word from God before you do something like that. But God had it set up so amazingly because the head of the Hindu radical group, the leader, was the next-door neighbor of the man that God healed.

SID: Now is God brilliant or what? We serve a brilliant God.

MIKE: Amazingly. What a genius. I couldn’t have done it any better myself, Lord if I had planned the script. So they stop in their tracks and the leader walks over and starts whispering in his ears, and he repeats the words back. And he shakes his head marveling, and he calls his men over and they all start whispering, and he repeats to them, and they’re all shaking their heads. To be honest with you, I thought it was a pastorally appointed checking committee to verify the miracles.

SID: Not there to kill you.

MIKE: I didn’t know they came to beat me up. Their plan was to beat me up publically then tie me to the bumper of their car and drag me through the city until I was dead. And I asked them the next day when I talked to them, I said, “Why did you want to do that?” And they said, “We wanted to discourage missionary activity.” I said, “Well you would have discouraged me, I guarantee you, if you had done that.” But I didn’t know that’s their motive. So I prayed for the second one, and the second one hears. And in my ignorance, I sent the second one to the checking committee, and they verify, this one is hearing, too. And we went on to the third, and the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, they all got their hearing. I gave an invitation. Now they’re not just being reached intellectually, they’re being reached supernaturally. And that’s what the early church did.

SID: Now I have a question for you. Can anyone use these supernatural prayers that have supernatural results that you have researched in the Bible? Can anyone use them?

MIKE: Absolutely. It’s the inheritance of every child of God. Now you may not get, when I say you, I mean in general, you may not get a word of knowledge or a word of wisdom to act on, but we can still act on the written word, because that’s power. But Jesus, the Word made flesh, resorted to the written word when he faced off with the devil. And so any believer can say it is written, it is written, it is written.

SID: There is something about these New Covenant prayers that Mike has researched. Tell me about the Hosanna Prayer.

MIKE: Well the Hosanna Prayer ushered in the New Covenant. Actually, the word “Hosanna” is only found in one place in the Bible, and that’s the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. However, it’s drawn from a traditional Hebrew response that is especially shouted during Passover and Tabernacles, “Ha shana,” which means, “Lord save, we beseech thee.” [who saves we beseech thee] So as Jesus is entering into Jerusalem, the crowd comes around him and hundreds of voices shout, “Hosanna! Hosanna to the son of David. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!” Well when you shout Hosanna to God, you’re saying, Lord save me. But really in your heart of hearts you’re saying, I believe you’re going to save me. And if you add those words, “in the highest” to it, you’re saying, Lord, I believe you’re going to save me to the highest degree possible for God to save a human being. Save me from sickness, save me from sin, save me from Satan, save me from death, save me from Hell, save me from the grave. He did it. He responded to that prayer. That one word prayer changed the world forever.

SID: Let me ask you something. Kenneth Hagan prayed over a thousand times from the Book of Ephesians, two prayers, Ephesians, Chapter 1:17-20, Ephesians, Chapter 3:14-19. I told you about that and you started praying. What happened when you started praying them?

MIKE: Well what God showed me, and I’ve got to preface it quickly with this, is that those prayers are not just Paul praying for the Ephesian church or another Bible writer praying for some church or person that they’re addressing. But all the scriptures God breathed, the Bible says it was written by the Holy Spirit that holy men of God wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. So while Paul was writing that prayer to the Ephesians, that was not just Paul praying for the Ephesians that they would receive the spirit of wisdom and revelation, and the knowledge of God, that they might know the hope of his calling and the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, and the exceeding greatness of his power toward those who believe. No, that was the Holy Spirit venting that prayer through Paul and then fanning it out to the entire body of Christ who was going to come into being in that century and yet many centuries later, those of us in the audience here tonight, we are recipients of that prayer. So what God showed me, and I didn’t realize until you told me about Brother Hagan’s revelation, what God showed me is I needed to start accepting those prayers as a done deal. And I started saying, Lord, I receive the spirit of revelation. I receive that power. I receive it right now.

SID: You prayed, quickly for someone right after you had that revelation. What happened?

MIKE: I went to a teen challenge where someone had his face smashed in. He was blind in one eye, deaf in one ear, and I had been praying for that exceeding great power to be manifested. I just barely laid hands on him and he started seeing and hearing again.

SID: Pray right now, right now.

MIKE: In the name of Jesus, I’m going to show Hosanna over every person that is watching this telecast. You shout it where you’re at right now. We’re going to shout Hosanna right now. Father, in the name of Jesus, we come to you on the basis of what has already been written in your word. You’ve already said, it is written, I give you power over all the power of the enemy. So we shatter the whole of the enemy right now. We take a authority over strongholds. Cripples are being healed and getting up out of wheelchairs and deaf people are hearing again. Blind people are seeing again. And I feel that radiance of the anointing, Lord. I speak it, that the anointing destroys the yoke. I feel it radiating through the audience. In fact, this audience ought to be praising God with the word “Hosanna” in the highest. Lord, save us. Hosanna in the highest!

SID: Hosanna! Hosanna!

MIKE: Lord, we believe in you saving us, saving us from sin, saving from sickness, saving us from bondage, saving us from mental pressure, saving us! Lift our hands up. Hosanna to you right now, Lord. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

SID: I tell you what, I don’t know how to close it, except the most important supernatural prayer I know, the most important, Romans 10, Verse 9: “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus rose from the dead and believe it in your heart, you shall be saved.”
