HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.


AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER


THOMPSON, THANKS FOR JOINING


US.


WELL, LAURA LYNN, IT'S


ALMOST THAT TIME, I'M PACKING


BACKPACKS ACROSS THE COUNTRY,


9,000, TO BE EXACT, 9,500, AND


GETTING KIDS READY FOR SCHOOL.


AND YET YOU'RE HERE.


WELL, IT'S ALL ACROSS THE


COUNTRY, HALIFAX, VANCOUVER,


EDMONTON, AND ALL THESE


DIFFERENT SITES.


THANK YOU FOR DOING IT FOR


THE KIDS, YOU'RE A GOOD MAN.


IT'S A WHOLE LOT OF FUN.


WE HAVE AN AMAZING SHOW FOR YOU


TODAY, WITH TWO POWERFUL


STORIES WHERE GOD CAME THROUGH


EVEN IN THE MOST EXTREME


CIRCUMSTANCES.


YOU'LL SEE THE INCREDIBLE


STORY OF PHYLLIS LAWLER, HER


LIFE WAS A LONG TRAIL OF ABUSE


DATING ALL THE WAY BACK TO HER


CHILDHOOD, YOU'LL SEE HOW ONE


WOMAN'S PRAYERS LED TO A


RADICAL CHANGE IN PHYLLIS'


LIFE, IF YOU'RE NOT SURE IF GOD


IS REAL OR ABLE TO SAVE YOU,


THEN YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS


THIS UNBELIEVABLE STORY OF


REDEMPTION.


ABSOLUTELY, AND YOU'LL SEE


WHAT HAPPENED WHEN MARILYN


GILMORE TOOK THE ADVICE OF A


STRANGE VOICE AT THE OTHER END


OF THE PHONE AND YOU'LL BE


AMAZED AT WHAT HAPPENED WHEN


MARILYN PUT FAITH BEFORE


UNDERSTANDING.


AND WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT


WHAT YOU BELIEVE, CANADA, AS I


MET UP WITH MR. WORLD, 2011 AT


THE BEACH AND YOU WON'T WANT TO


MISS IT, BUT FIRST, MARILYN'S


MARRIAGE GETS TOUCHED BY AN


ANGEL.


I LIVED IN A LITTLE


FARMHOUSE AND IT WAS VICIOUSLY


COLD, AND THE PHONE RANG AND IT


WAS BOB AND HE SAID, I DON'T


WANT YOU TO TALK, I WANT YOU TO


LISTEN, I'VE LEFT YOU, I HAVE


SOMEONE ELSE, I DON'T LOVE YOU


ANYMORE, I'M NOT COMING HOME,


DON'T TRY TO GET A HOLD OF YOU


AND WORK, AND DON'T TRY TO


BOTHER ME, I'LL TRY TO CONTACT


YOU ABOUT MY THINGS.


AND THEN I SAID, BOB, I LOVE


YOU, I WAS JUST DEVASTATED, I


WAS TOTALLY DEVASTATED, AND ON


SATURDAY, I TURNED ON THE


TELEVISION AND WE DIDN'T GET


VERY MANY STATIONS OUT IN


VINELAND BUT WE DID GET THE 700


CLUB AND PAT WAS SAYING THAT NO


MATTER WHAT HAPPENS IN YOUR


LIFE, THAT JESUS IS REAL AND HE


IS THERE AND THAT THERE'S SO


MUCH POWER IN PRAYER AND I


THOUGHT, I'M GOING TO CALL THAT


NUMBER AND I'M GOING TO GET


PRAYER SO I DIALED THE NUMBER


AND THIS LITTLE OLD LADY CAME


ON AND I SAID MY HUSBAND'S LEFT


ME AND I JUST NEED PRAYER, AND


SHE SAYS, I'M GOING TO PRAY A


PRAYER THAT YOU MAY NEVER HEARD


BEFORE, IT WASN'T THE VOICE OF


AN OLD LADY, AND IT WAS A


POWERFUL VOICE AND IT SAID IN


THE JESUS COME OF NAZARETH, I


COME AGAINST YOU SATAN, I COME


AGAINST YOU IN THE NAME OF


JESUS CHRIST AND I COMMAND YOU


TO TAKE YOUR CLAWS OUT OF THIS


MAN THIS HAVE DAY, AND I PRAY


THAT THIS VERY DAY THAT THIS


MAN WILL CALL HIS WIFE AND HE


WILL TELL HER HE LOVES HER AND


HE WILL BEFORE HIS CLOCK


STRIKES MIDNIGHT, HE WILL GO


DOWN ON HIS KNEES AND GIVE HIS


HEART TO JESUS.


AND I THOUGHT, THANK YOU, VERY


MUCH, SO ALL DAY LONG, I WAS


PRAYING AND FINALLY AT 9:00 AT


NIGHT, HE PHONED ME AND HE


SAID, MARILYN, AND I SAID, YES,


I JUST WANT TO TELL YOU


SOMETHING, I SAID WHAT, AND HE


SAID, I LOVE YOU, I DO LOVE


YOU, AND HE SAID, THIS MIGHT


SOUND REALLY WEIRD, BUT BEFORE


WE TALK, I THINK WE SHOULD


PRAYER, AND I TOOK HIM TO THE


CENTER'S PRAYER AND HE SAID IT


AND I COULD HEAR HIM SOBBING


AND HE CRIED AND HE CRIED, AND


HE CRIED AND I TURNED THE LIGHT


ON AND THE TEARS WERE POURING


DOWN HIS FACE, AND I HUGGED HIM


AND WHEN I HUGGED HIM I COULD


SEE MY WATCH AND IT WAS FIVE


MINUTES TO 12:00.


SO, WE TALKED ABOUT THE LORD,


AND HE SAID, I WANT TO COME


HOME.


I'M BORN AGAIN, YOU'RE BORN


AGAIN AND I WANT TO LIVE FOR


THE LORD.


AND I SAID, YOU KNOW, I CALLED


THE 700 CLUB LAST WEEK.


HE SAID, YOU DID, AND I TOLD


HIM, I HAD A LITTLE OLD LADY


PRAY AND SHE PRAYED YOU WOULD


COME BACK BEFORE MIDNIGHT.


AND HE SAID, OH, WE SHOULD


PHONE HER AND THANK HER, SO I


CALLED THAT NUMBER AND A YOUNG


MAN ANSWERED AND HE SAID,


HELLO, THIS IS PAUL, 700 CLUB,


CAN I HELP YOU, AND I SAID A


LITTLE OLD LADY PRAYED FOR ME


LAST WEEK AND HER PRAYERS WERE


ANSWERED AND WE WANT TO LET HER


KNOW.


WELL, WHAT WAS HER NAME, AND I


SAID, SHE DIDN'T ANSWER WITH A


NAME.


HE SAID, ARE YOU SURE, WE


ALWAYS ANSWER WITH A NAME, AND


I SAID, NO, SHE JUST SAID 700


CLUB, AND HE SAID, ARE YOU


ABSOLUTELY SURE YOU PHONED THIS


PHONE, AND IT WAS LAST


SATURDAY, I SAID, YES, AND HE


SAID, THAT'S VERY STRANGE, WE


DIDN'T HAVE ANY LITTLE OLD


LADIES ANSWERING PHONES LAST


SATURDAY, NOT AT ALL.


HE SAID, I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU


WERE TALKING TO BUT THEY SURE


HAD A PIPELINE THROUGH TO GOD.


WE WERE MARRIED A TOTAL OF 21


YEARS WHEN HE PASSED AND HE WAS


VERY, VERY SICK AT THE END AND


HE LAID IN BED AND HE THANKED


ME, HE THANKED ME FOR LEADING


HIM TO JESUS AND HE SAID, MY


BODY IS WASTING AWAY AND MY


BODY IS GETTING WEAKER BUT MY


SPIRIT IS GETTING STRONGER, AND


I KNOW WHERE HE IS THANKS TO


THE 700 CLUB.


MARILYN'S STORY IS PROOF


POSITIVE THAT GOD STILL SPEAKS


TODAY.


YOU KNOW, I'M SO THRILLED ABOUT


WHAT GOD WAS ABLE TO DO AND


RESTORE THAT MARRIAGE BECAUSE


SHE GOT THE CALL AND THAT


DREADED CALL DIDN'T EVEN GET AN


OPPORTUNITY TO ANSWER, JUST


HEARD HER HUSBAND ON THE OTHER


END SAYING, MARILYN, I'M


LEAVING YOU, I FOUND SOMEONE


ELSE, I DON'T WANT TO HEAR


ANYTHING, CLUNK, AND SHE WAS


DEVASTATED, BUT I THANK GOD,


HER FAITH KICKED IN BECAUSE SHE


HAD INSIDE OF HER HEART THAT


STILL SMALL VOICE THAT SAYS


REACH OUT, DON'T BEAR THIS BY


YOURSELF.


YOU KNOW, THAT'S WHAT I BELIEVE


GOD IS SPEAKING TO US TODAY AS


WELL BECAUSE THERE WAS ANOTHER


MARY, NOT A MIR LIN THAT HAD


SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES THAT


HAPPENED, SHE SPOKE TO AN ANGEL


AND HE SAID, YOU WILL GIVE


BIRTH TO THE SON OF GOD, OUR


SECRET TO OUR HAS ARE E MANUAL,


GOD IS WITH US.


THAT IS SO TRUE, BRIAN, AND


THERE IS SOMEBODY RIGHT NOW WHO


IS REALLY BROKEN HEARTED,


SOMEONE HAS BETRAYED YOU AND


YOU ARE FEELING HELPLESS.


IF YOU HAVE NOBODY ELSE OR EVEN


IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE,


THERE'S A NUMBER YOU CAN CALL,


1-855-759-0700.


THERE ARE OPERATORS STANDING


BY, THESE ARE NOT ORDINARY


PEOPLE, THESE ARE PEOPLE WITH


POWERFUL PRAYER LIVES THAT WILL


RISE IN FAITH FOR YOUR


SITUATION.


YOU NEVER HAVE TO FEEL ALONE,


YOU DON'T WALK ALONE, GOD IS


ALWAYS THERE.


AND THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE AS


WELL, I HAVE SOME GREAT


RESOURCES FOR YOU IF YOUR


MARRIAGE IS IN THAT PLACE, GOD


WAS ABLE TO RESTORE THAT


MARRIAGE BECAUSE HER HUSBAND


SAID I THINK WE NEED TO PRAY


AND LED HIM WITH THE


CENTER'S PRAYER, SOMEBODY IS


STANDING RIGHT BY TO PRAY WITH


YOU, 1-855-759-0700, OPERATORS


ARE STANDING BY, CALL NOW.


WELCOME TO THIS HOPE TO GO,


YOU KNOW, WE'RE TALKED TODAY


ABOUT UP, AND THAT'S THE FOCUS


OF OUR TIME HERE, WE'RE GOING


TO HAVE A TWO-PART SERIES WHERE


I HOPE YOU'RE GOING TO FIND THE


POWER OF GOD TO GET PAST MAYBE


EVEN DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES IN


YOUR LIFE AND MOVE FORWARD LIKE


A SLINGSHOT, I LOVE JUST FOR


LAUGHS, IT IS SO FUNNY,


SOMETIMES I SIT THERE ALL BY


MYSELF OR WHETHER I'M ON PLANES


AND THERE WAS ONE SKIT JUST FOR


LAUGHS, HE WAS BRILLIANT, HE


WAS LOOKING AT THE GROUND AND


HE WAS LOOKING AROUND AND


PEOPLE STARTED COMING AROUND


AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY


STARTED LOOKING AT HIM SORT OF


STRANGE AND THEY WERE DOING


WHAT HE WAS DOING, HE WAS ON


HIS KNEES AND THEN PRETTY SOON,


YOU HAD LINE LIKE THIS FLASH


MOB OF PEOPLE ON THEIR KNEES


AND HE GETS OUT OF THERE AND


EVERYBODY'S ON THEIR KNEES AND


NO ONE KNOWS WHAT'S GOING ON,


NO ONE ASKED THE QUESTION, WHAT


ARE WE LOOKING FOR.


WELL, WHAT WE BELIEVE


DETERMINES IN A LARGE PART HOW


WE BEHAVE, THAT'S WHAT THIS


SHOWS US, FOR THAT REASON, IF


WE GET CHRIST RIGHT, WE GET


EVERYTHING ELSE RIGHT.


THIS IS A GREAT PICTURE OF HOW


MANY PEOPLE LIVE THEIR LIVES


TODAY BUSY SEARCHING FOR


SOMETHING BECAUSE THEY KNOW


THERE'S GOT TO BE MORE FOR LIFE


BUT THEY'LL NEVER FIND IT IF


THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS


THEY'RE MISSING, THIS IS THE


BIGGEST THING, WHAT WE BELIEVE


WILL DETERMINE IN A LARGE PART


HOW WE BEHAVE.


FOR THAT REASON, IF WE GET


CHRIST RIGHT, EVERYTHING ELSE


IS GOING TO BE RIGHT.


LISTEN TO WHAT THE SCRIPTURE


SAYS, I WANT YOU TO LOCK IN ON


THIS, SINCE YOU HAVE RAISED


WITH CHRIST, SET YOUR HEART ON


THE THINGS ABOVE WHERE CHRIST


IS SEATED ON THE RIGHT HAND OF


GOD AND SET YOUR MIND ON THE


THINGS ABOVE, FOR YOU DIED AND


YOUR LIFE IS HIDDEN WITH CHRIST


IN GOD AND WHEN CHRIST WHO IS


YOUR LIFE APPEARS, THEN YOU


WILL ALSO APPEAR WITH HIM IN


GLORY.


THE APOSTLE PAUL IN PREVIOUS


CHAPTERS IN CHAPTER 3 TELLS US,


HE WAS ARGUING THAT WE ARE SET


FREE FROM THE POWERS AROUND US


AND NOW HE TELL US WE HAVE BEEN


SET FREE OF LIVING A LIFE OF


PURPOSE OF LIVING UP ABOVE


CIRCUMSTANCES.


NOW, GOD HAS A PLAN FOR EACH


AND EVERY ONE OF US TO MAKE US


NEW.


THEN HE CHALLENGES US TO LIVE


AS NEW PEOPLE, IN SHORT, WE


DON'T HAVE TO BE LIKE WE'VE


ALWAYS BEEN, WE CAN BREAK FREE


FROM THE PAST IF WE KNOW WHERE


TO LOOK.


THE FIRST PRINCIPLE IS THIS,


LOOK UP, THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE


TO DO, STOP LOOKING DOWN AND


STOP LOOKING HORIZONTALLY, BUT


LOOK UP AT GOD, LOOK UP WHERE


YOU ARE SEATED WITH CHRIST IN


HEAVENLY PLACES INSTEAD OF


GAZING AT THE GROUND.


WE HAVE TO LOOK UP AND THAT IS


YOUR HOPE TO GO.


BRIAN TALKED ABOUT WHAT YOU


BELIEVE WILL DETERMINE HOW YOU


BEHAVE, LET ME READ YOU A VERSE


THAT YOU CAN BELIEVE IN, IT'S


IN ROMANS 3, VERSE 24, ALL OUR


JUSTIFIED AND MADE UP RIGHT AND


IN RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD,


FREELY AND GRATUITOUSLY BY HIS


GRACE, HIS UNMERITED FAVOR AND


HIS MERCY THROUGH THE


REDEMPTION WHICH IS PROVIDED IN


CHRIST, JESUS, IF YOU BELIEVE


THAT, YOU ARE GOING TO WALK IN


SUCH FREEDOM, SUCH GLORIOUS AND


ABSOLUTE VICTORY, YOU'RE NOT


EVEN GOING TO BELIEVE IT.


MR. WORLD AND I TALKED ABOUT


RELIGION AT THE BEACH.


YOU'RE FROM WHERE ORIGINALLY.


WE'RE FROM PRUSSIA, IRAN.



EVERYONE'S GOING TO NOTE AT


HOME YOU'RE LOOKING PRETTY GOOD.


WHAT DO YOU DO AND WHY ARE YOU


SO BUFF?


I DO EXERCISE EVERY DAY, I'M


THE CHAMP ON -- CHAMPION OF


THE WORLD IN 2011.


OF THE WORLD?


OF THE WORLD, YEAH, EXACTLY,


AND ALSO CHAMPION FOR MY


COUNTRY FOR THREE YEARS AND


BODY BUILDING AND BODY CLASSIC.


I HAVE A TOUGH JOB.


TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR


FAITH, ARE YOU A MUSLIM MAN?


YES, I AM A MUSLIM.


WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO


YOU WHEN ALL OF THIS IS OVER,


THIS BODY HAS TURNED BACK TO


DUST, WHERE WILL YOU SPEND YOUR


ETERNITY?


I DO BELIEVE THAT WHEN WE


DIE, THERE IS GOING TO BE


SOMETHING ELSE, NOBODY KNOWS,


MY RELIGION SAYS WE GO TO


PARADISE AND HELL.


YES, THERE'S TWO PLACES,


PARADISE AND HELL, THAT'S LIKE


CHRISTIANITY AND I BELIEVE IN


JESUS.


WHEN YOU DIE, YOU KNOW, I


DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE


AFTER LIFE.


SO, DO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU


JUST TRY TO DO THE BEST THAT


YOU CAN ON THIS EARTH?


A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO DO


THEIR BEST BUT WE ALL FAIL, YOU


KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING, WE ALL


MAKE SIN, WE MAKE MISTAKES, WE


COVET, WE WANT THINGS, WE'RE


GREEDY, WE LUST, RIGHT, AND


WHAT IS IT THEN THAT GIVES YOU


HOPE THAT YOU'RE GOOD ENOUGH TO


GET INTO ETERNAL LIFE?


YOU KNOW, I'VE SEEN IT


MYSELF, I DID LOTS OF MISTAKES,


THE MOMENT I DID THAT MISTAKES,


I DIDN'T KNOW, BUT AFTER THAT,


I THOUGHT THE HORRIBLE THINGS I


DID.


I KNOW THE MUSLIM RELIGION


HAS A TREMENDOUS RESPECT FOR


JESUS, RIGHT?


YES.


WHO DO YOU THINK HE WAS?


I DON'T KNOW THIS GUY, BUT I


DO RESPECT THESE PEOPLE.


JESUS BECAME THE EMBODIMENT


OF GOD AND CAME TO DIE AND TO


SHED -- GIVE HIS LIFE SO THAT


WE WOULD BE FREE OF OUR SIN.


DO YOU THINK IT'S POSSIBLE?


I SAW LOTS OF MOVIE ABOUT


JESUS, BUT I THINK IT'S A LONG


TIME AGO AND NOBODY CAN SAY


SOMETHING LIKE THAT, IF FOR


EXAMPLE SOMEBODY RIGHT NOW SAID


I'M THE SON OF GOD, CAN YOU


JUST BELIEVE THAT?


DO YOU BELIEVE?


IT WOULD EITHER BE A CRAZY


CLAIM OR THEY'D HAVE TO SHOW


SOME PROOF OF IT, WOULDN'T THEY?


ANYBODY CAN CLAIM IT.


I'M A LOGICAL MAN.


WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ABOUT THE


FACT THAT JESUS CAME AND THEY


DID DIE, THEY NEVER FOUND HIS


BODY, AND THAT HIS DISCIPLES,


EVEN HIS CLOSEST DISCIPLES DIED


A MARTYR'S DEATH BECAUSE THEY


WENT TO THEIR DEATH SAYING THIS


WAS JESUS.


I DO RESPECT PEOPLE THAT


THEY DON'T HURT THE OTHERS,


MAYBE YOUR IDEA, YOUR RELIGION,


WHATEVER YOU THINK IS TO HURT


THE OTHER PEOPLE.


AND YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN


THAT.


I DON'T RESPECT THAT AND I'M


GOING TO STAND.


DO YOU WANT TO DO AN ARM


WRESTLE AND I'LL SEE IF I CAN


TAKE YOU.


YES.


LET'S TRY.


OH MY GOD.


I KNOW, I'M TOUGHER THAN I


LOOK, RIGHT.


WELL, I'LL TELL YOU, MY JOB


IS NOT EASY, BRIAN, BEING OUT


THERE WITH ALL THE BUFF GUYS,


BUT I APPRECIATED HIS HONESTY.


HE SHARED FROM THE HEART ABOUT


HIS BELIEFS AND WE HAD AN


EXCELLENT EXCHANGE, I LOVED IT.


YOU KNOW WHAT, I BELIEVE YOU


DID A GREAT JOB AS WELL.


THANK YOU.


YEAH.

WELCOME BACK.


UP NEXT, PHYLLIS LAWLER'S


EXTREME CHILDHOOD LEADS TO AN


EXTREME ENCOUNTER WITH GOD.


MY MOTHER WAS DIAGNOSED WITH


MANIC DEPRESSIVE SCHIZOPHRENIA,


THEY TREATED HER WITH ALL


KINDS OF MEDICINE BUT IT WASN'T


THE RIGHT STUFF, I'M SURE OF IT.


I REMEMBER NOT HAVING ENOUGH


FOOD, I WOULD BE ABOUT 3 OR 4


AND THERE WAS FOUR OR FIVE OF


US IN A BED IN THE WINTER IN


OUR SNOW SUITS, IN OUR BOOTS


UNDERNEATH THE BLANKET.


YOU DON'T KNOW WHEN YOU'RE 4 OR


5 THAT THE ELECTRICITY HAS BEEN


TURNED OFF AND THERE'S NO HEAT.


MY STEPFATHER THAT MY MOTHER


GOT WITH WAS AN ALCOHOLIC, HE


WASN'T A HAPPY CAMPER, SO


THAT'S WHERE THE PHYSICAL AND


SEXUAL ABUSE STARTED COMING IN.


HE WOULD GRAB YOUR PONY TAIL


AND SAY, DON'T MOVE AND YOU


WOULD CRY AND YOU WOULD CRY


BECAUSE IT HURTS, AND HE'D SAY,


DON'T MOVE, IF YOU DON'T MOVE,


IT WON'T HURT.


IT'S HARD WHEN YOU'RE A LITTLE


GIRL TO STAND THERE FOR 20


MINUTES AND NOT MOVE.


HE STARTED RAPING ME, I WAS


MAYBE 6 OR 7, WHEN I WAS 8 OR


9, I TOLD MY MOTHER, I SAID,


THIS FAMILY MEMBER HAS BEEN


RAPING ME FOR YEARS, AND I'M


TALKING SEVERE, SHE WENT, WELL,


I CAN'T DO ANYTHING.


WHAT DID YOU DO, WHAT DID YOU


SAY?


I SAID, MA, WHAT DO YOU MEAN --


SHE SAID, HE WON'T DO IT


ANYMORE, YOU'RE TOO OLD NOW


ANYWAY.


WHEN I WAS 14, I LAID IN A


FIELD RIGHT BY MY FAMILY


MEMBER, I WAS REALLY ANGRY AT


GOD AND I SAID, LORD, I DON'T


UNDERSTAND, I KNEW THIS GOD


THAT MY MOTHER HAD TAUGHT ME


ABOUT, THIS ANGRY GOD, I


THOUGHT, OKAY, I THOUGHT, I


CAN'T TAKE MY LIFE BECAUSE I


DON'T WANT TO GO TO HELL


BECAUSE I'VE ALREADY LIVED IT


AND I DON'T WANT TO LIVE IT


ANYMORE, SO THAT'S NOT AN


OPTION.


I WAS LAYING THERE AND I


THOUGHT, WHY DON'T YOU KILL ME,


I'M NOT EVEN GOOD ENOUGH FOR


YOU TO KILL, YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T


WASTE YOUR TIME ON ME, SO IT


JUST MADE ME ANGRIER AND


ANGRIER.


WHEN I WAS 17 AND HOMELESS


AGAIN FOR THE THIRD OR FOURTH


TIME, I WAS DIRTY AND I WAS


STINKY, I HADN'T HAD A BATH IN


A COUPLE OF DAYS, SOMEBODY SAID


THAT THERE'S A LADY, SHE'LL


GIVE A HOMELESS PERSON A BED, I


SAID, SURE, I DIDN'T KNOW SHE


WAS ON FIRE BORN AGAIN FOR GOD,


AND SHE SAID, MY ONLY


REQUIREMENT IS THAT I GET TO


PRAY ON YOU, AND I SAID, OH,


LORD, AND SHE PUT HER HAND ON


MY HEAD AND I REMEMBER HER


GOING LIKE THIS, THE RIGHT HAND


OF GOD, SHE PUT MY HAND ON MY


HAND AND I SAID, SAVE THIS


LITTLE ONE, OKAY, YOU CAN EAT


NOW, THAT'S ALL SHE SAID, AND I


THOUGHT, IS THAT ALL, SHE SAID,


YOU'RE GOING TO BE SAVED, YOU


DON'T HAVE TO MAKE IT A BIG,


LONG PRAYER.


TWO YEARS LATER, MY MOTHER WAS


GOING TO A RETREAT IN RODE


ISLAND, SHE SAID ONE OF HER


FRIENDS WAS GOING FOR A


DIVORCE, SHE GETS ME UP ON A


SUNDAY MORNING AND WAKES ME UP


OUT OF BED AND SHE SAID, YOU


HAVE TO GET READY TO GO TO


CHURCH, I SAID, NO, MY MOM


PROMISED ME I DIDN'T HAVE TO DO


ANYTHING ABOUT THIS CHURCH, AND


SHE SAID, NO, THIS GIVES ME


RIGHTS TO YOU, SO UP, SO I SAW


THESE PEOPLE UP ON THE STAGE


AND I SAID TO HER, I SAID, HOW


COME THEY'RE HAPPY, I SAID,


THEY'RE ALL SMILING, AND THERE


WAS SOME PEOPLE PRAYING AND


LAUGHING, AND SHE SAID, THAT'S


THE WORSHIP TEAM.


I SAID, THEY'RE HAPPY TO BE


HERE, I'VE ONLY SEEN PEOPLE


REALLY, REALLY SAD IN CHURCH.


WE GOT TO HER PLACE AT NIGHT, I


WENT TO BED AND I ALWAYS SLEPT


IN A DARK ROOM BECAUSE THAT WAY


I KNEW SOMEBODY WAS COMING IN


AT ME AND SHE CAME IN AT THE


CORNER AND SAT IN A ROCKER AND


SHE STARTED PRAYING IN TONGUES


AND I SAID STOP THAT, SHE SAID


NO, SHE PUT HER HAND ON HER AND


STARTED TO PRAY ON ME, I SAID,


IF YOU DON'T TAKE YOUR HANDS


OFF ME, I'M GOING TO HURT YOU.


SHE SAID, I CAN'T, GOD TOLD ME


TO PRAY BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT'S


WHAT I NEEDED, I DIDN'T NEED TO


COME TO THE ALTAR AND NOW IS


THE TIME, JUST COME GIVE YOUR


LIFE TO LORD, I NEEDED RADICAL


SAVING.


AND I SAW JESUS STANDING THERE


AS MUCH AS YOU'RE SEEING ME AND


HE PUT HIS ARMS OUT TO ME AND I


SAID, DON'T TOUCH ME, STAY


AWAY, AND HE SAID, I WANT TO


SAVE YOU, YOU HAVE TO GIVE ME


YOUR LIFE, AND I SAID, JUST


TAKE IT, EVERYBODY ELSE HAS,


THEY'VE TAKEN MY VIRGINITY AND


THEY'VE TAKEN EVERYTHING, HE


SAID, THEY DIDN'T TAKE YOUR


SOUL, I WOULDN'T BE ASKING THAT


IF THEY TOOK IT, YOU HAVE THAT.


I SAID, OKAY, SO JUST TAKE IT,


HE SAID, I CAN'T, THE RULES SAY


YOU HAVE TO GIVE IT TO ME, BUT


IF YOU DO, HE SAID, I'LL GIVE


YOU MY WORD, I WILL HEAL YOUR


PAIN.


I WAS SAVED, I WENT FROM BEING


BEAT TO UPBEAT, IT DOESN'T


MATTER IF YOU BATTERED,


BRUISED, BEATEN, HE'S THERE,


THERE'S NOTHING YOU'VE DONE,


THERE'S NOTHING THAT YOU'VE


THOUGHT THAT HE DOESN'T KNOW.


I SAY TO PEOPLE, YOU KNOW,


OKAY, I UNDERSTAND THE


SITUATION YOU'RE IN, I ABOVE


ANYBODY UNDERSTANDS, BUT GOD'S


GOING TO GET YOU THROUGH IT,


THAT'S THE POINT, THERE'S A


LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL,


JUST WAIT.


I DON'T HAVE THE FEAR THAT I


HAD, THAT IS GONE.


I'VE PRAYED, BELIEVE YOU ME,


I'VE PRAYED FOR THE SALVATION


OF THE PEOPLE THAT HURT ME,


MOST ARE DEAD THAT I KNOW OF,


BUT GOD CAN GET YOU TO THAT


POINT WHERE YOU'RE PRAYING FOR


THE SALVATION OF SOMEONE WHO


HURT YOU SO TERRIBLY AND


CHILDREN NEED TO KNOW, I DIDN'T


DO IT, I DIDN'T DESERVE IT, I


DIDN'T ASK FOR IT, YOU CAN TAKE


MY BODY, YOU CAN'T TAKE MY


SOUL.


THERE'S ALWAYS REDEMPTION.


GOD SAYS THERE'S ALWAYS


REDEMPTION.


WHAT AN AMAZING STORY.


YOU KNOW, IT CAN ONLY BE GOD


WHO CAN HELP US TO FORGIVE


SOMEBODY WHO HAS ABUSED US AND


HURT US AND BETRAYED US.


IT CAN ONLY BE GOD.


GOD ASKS US TO FORGIVE THOSE


WHO HAVE WRONGED US, DO YOU


KNOW WHY?


BECAUSE HE HAS FORGIVEN US, HE


KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT IT'S LIKE,


HE KNOWS WHAT IT'S LIKE TO


FORGIVE PEOPLE THAT WERE


ACTUALLY MURDERING HIM AS HE


HUNG ON A CROSS, HE KNOWS WHAT


IT FEELS LIKE TO BE BETRAYED


AND HE KNOWS IT IS RIGHT TO


FORGIVE AND THE THING ABOUT IT,


YOU COULD SEE THE FREEDOM IN


HER EYES, COULDN'T YOU?


SHE WAS NO LONGER CARRYING ALL


OF THAT WEIGHT AND THAT BURDEN


OF BEING UPSET AND HURT OVER


WHAT SOMEONE HAD DONE, SHE WAS


ABLE TO RELEASE IT, THAT'S THE


BEAUTY OF WHAT FORGIVENESS


DOES, IT LETS YOU TAKE ALL OF


THAT PAIN AND RELEASE IT TO GOD


AND HE IS OUR VINDICATE, HE'S


THE ONE WHO WALKS WITH US


THROUGH THIS LIFE, HE CAN SET


US COMPLETELY FREE.


WHEN PHYLLIS WAS YOUNG AND


THIS TRAUMA STARTED, I'VE SEEN


A PATTERN HAPPENING OVER AND


OVER, WHEN THE ENEMY COMES


AFTER A CHILD AT THAT AGE, HE


IS LITERALLY TRYING TO KNOCK


THE VERY BLESSING OUT OF THEM


BECAUSE --


THEIR DESTINY.


THEIR DESTINY, AND WHAT


PHYLLIS DID, SHE SAID SOMEONE


IS GOING TO COME IN ON ME


AGAIN, AND JESUS, JUST TAKE IT,


EVERYBODY ELSE HAS TAKEN IN,


AND HE SAID, NO, YOU HAVE TO


GIVE IT TO ME.


HE TOOK HER FROM BEING A VICTIM


TO A VICTOR AT THAT MOMENT


BECAUSE SHE RECOGNIZED SHE HAD


SOMETHING TO GIVE AND HE WOULD


NEVER ALLOW IT TO BE MISUSED.


YOU MAY BE JUST LIKE PHYLLIS


TODAY, HE'S SAYING GIVE ME THAT


AND I'LL GIVE YOU THE WORLD.


LET'S PRAY.


SOMEONE LAID HANDS ON HER, LAY


HANDS ON YOURSELF AND JUST


BELIEVE WITH US RIGHT NOW,


FATHER, IN THE NAME OF JESUS,


WE ASK YOU THAT YOU WOULD BY


THE POWER OF YOUR SPIRIT BREAK


THIS SPIRIT, OH, GOD, OF


PERVERSION THAT HAS COME


AGAINST YOUR CHILDREN, THE


BLOOD OF JESUS IS AGAINST YOU,


SATAN, AND REBUKE YOU NOW IN


JESUS NAME, AMEN.


AMEN.


IF YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER,


WOULD YOU CALL US AT


1-855-759-0700.


WE LOOK FORWARD TO BEING WITH


YOU ALL AGAIN, UNTIL NEXT TIME,


I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER THOMPSON.
