Watch the 700 Club Canada for October 31, 2012. Read Transcript


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.

I'M BRIAN WARREN, I'M

PRAYING FOR YOU.
