SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. What would it be like if every prayer you prayed was answered? Do you think your prayer life would be more important than it is now? Do you think you might be praying all the time? Well my guest says she’s learned through God teaching her step by step how to have all your prayers answered and she’d like to teach you. Is there anyone interested? You know, Jennifer, I have a picture inside of me. You’re a young child. You’re abandoned by your father and I can just picture you walking up to strangers, strange men and saying to them, are you my daddy? That must have been a tough time for you.

JENNIFER: That was what was repeated to me, that I was doing at that time just as a very young child, looking for my dad.

SID: And your mom remarried. She married a Mormon and so you became part of the Mormon Church. You kind of had your period of rebellion. You drank, you did coke. That’s more than a period. That’s a big period of rebellion. And how in the world did God get a hold of you?

JENNIFER: It was a miracle because I had no interest in Christianity at all. As a Mormon, naturally they want you to stay in the Mormon Church and you’re taught who to avoid, so we were taught to avoid Christians. And so becoming desperate, becoming understanding that the Mormon Church was not taking care of my problems, my uncle, he invited us to church and he went to a Pentecostal church. That would be far cry, the farthest thing that we would ever go to. But when you’re desperate you try things you would never try.

SID: If you’re sinking in the ocean you don’t care who throws you a rope.

JENNIFER: Exactly. So my mother and my half-sister, and myself, my stepfather didn’t come, we went to my uncle’s church and it was wild. It was everything you would think about as far as a traditional, old style, vintage Pentecostal church.

SID: You had zero grid.

JENNIFER: No grid at all. Ran around the church in worship. The ladies didn’t wear makeup. They believed that was holiness. And I sat there not even registering at all what the preacher was saying. And then what happened is he began to play on his guitar, and he sang to the congregation. And I remember exactly what he sang, and he sang “Are you Ready.” And when he hit that I felt the power and the presence of God upon me. It was like liquid warmth and it came all over me. And I felt that, and I began to cry. And I heard a statement in my heart. It was God speaking to me. It was Jesus speaking to me, and it was a distinguishable thought, and it was I accept you as you are. And it’s something I needed to hear because as a Mormon I was not feeling accepted as I was. I was failing the standard. But here Jesus, before I even accepted him, before I knew him the correct way, he was saying I accept you as you are. And so one of the ladies in the church, she sat down next to me because I was obviously being touched by God, crying and everything. And she asked me if I’d like to receive Jesus into my heart, and I said yes. And she prayed me through the traditional sinner’s prayer, and I meant it with all my heart. And then she said this, she said, “Would you like be baptized in the Holy Spirit? Now I knew about the term, but I didn’t know what it meant. Mormons, we didn’t have that in the Mormon Church obviously. And I said yes, and I began to speak in tongues.

SID: Did she tell you to speak in a supernatural language?

JENNIFER: No, she didn’t.

SID: It just bubbled out of you.

JENNIFER: Yes, it just came right out.

SID: So you get settled in the faith, but you must have had a problem with your Mormon stepdad.

JENNIFER: I did. He didn’t come to us, excuse me, he didn’t come to that church service. Obviously he wasn’t going to have anything to do with that. And about a month after my mother and myself, and my half-sister, we all gave our life to Jesus, about a month after I was studying for my exams in my bedroom. I of course lived with my family and the power of God came upon me for intercession. I hadn’t been taught about intercession. I hadn’t been taught about prayer. I didn’t know anything about this. All I know is I was on the floor weeping, wailing, crying out to God for the salvation of my stepfather, and I landed it like this. I landed it saying to God, I said, “Save my stepfather or why don’t I just die.” The words were really strong. And so I thought—

SID: That is strong. Save my stepfather or just kill me. That’s what in effect you just prayed.

JENNIFER: Yes. And so it was not long after that a local church in town, they offered a seminar on the differences between Christianity and Mormonism, and he actually went on his own. And as a result of that he gave his life to Jesus.

SID: You learned from starting with praying for your stepdad and your family about prayer that few believers understand. You say that when you realize the value of prayer you have tremendous influence with God. I want to find out why you have such influence with God. Any of you interested in that? I am. Be right back.
