Gordon: ONE NFL STAR

GIVING OTHERS A SECOND

CHANCE.

I'M HERE TO GIVE YOU A

SECOND CHANCE TO BECOME A

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

FOR "SPORTS ILLUSTRATED."

Gordon: COURT WARNER

TALKS ABOUT "THE MOMENT."

EVERYBODY NEEDS SOMEONE

TO STEP IN AND GIVE THEM A

CHANCE TO CHASE THEIR DREAM

BECAUSE LIFE HAS TAKEN THEM

IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

Gordon: ON "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE," WE USE

TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY FOR EACH

OTHER AND EXPLORE TOPICS

THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

GOOD MORNING, AND WELCOME TO

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

CURT WARNER KNOWS FIRSTHAND

WHAT IT IS LIKE TO GET A

SECOND CHANCE.

HIS CINDERELLA STORY OF

RISING FROM GROCERY CLERK TO

THE NFL HAS MADE HIM A

LEGEND, AND NOW HE IS

INVOLVED IN MAKING OTHER

PEOPLE'S DREAMS COME TRUE.

RECENTLY WENDY GRIFFITH

TALKED WITH CURT ABOUT HIS

NEW REALITY TV SHOW CALLED

"THE MOMENT."

EVERYBODY HAS A DREAM.

I'M CURT WARNER.

IT'S SO NICE TO MEET

YOU.

I'M HERE TO GIVE YOU A

SECOND CHANCE.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU AN

OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE OUT YOUR

DREAM.

HOW DOES IT SOUND?

IT SOUNDS UNBELIEVABLE.

Wendy: CURT WARNER IS

TAKING NINE HOP HOPEFULS ON

THE ADVENTURE OF A

LIFETIME.

THE JOURNEY INVOLVES GIVING

EACH CONTENDER A SECOND

CHANCE TO FULFILL THEIR

BIGGEST DREAM.

I'M HERE TO GIVE YOU A

SECOND CHANCE TO BECOME A

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

FOR "SPORTS ILLUSTRATED."

[YELLING]

Wendy: THE DREAMS ARE

AS DIVERSE AS THE PEOPLE.

FROM A PROFESSIONAL SPORTS

PHOTOGRAPHER TO A SYMPHONY

CONDUCTOR, TO A RACE CAR

DRIVER.

NINE PEOPLE WILL BE PUT TO

THE TEST TO SEE IF THEY HAVE

WHAT IT TAKES, AND IT WON'T

BE EASY.

I DID IT.

THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN

PRAYING FOR FOR SO MANY

YEARS.

Wendy: CURT WARNER

KNOWS ALL ABOUT SECOND

CHANCES.

HE FAMOUSLY WENT FROM

STOCKING GROCERY SHELVES IN

IOWA TO LEADING THE ST.

LOUIS RAMS TO A SUPER BOWL

VIC TARY I VICTORY IN THE

'90s.

FIVE WEEKS AFTER HE STARTED,

HE WAS CUT.

HE TRIED OTHER TEAMS, EVEN

OTHER LEAGUES.

AND BASICALLY EVERYBODY

SAID, WE'RE NOT INTERESTED.

I DIDN'T WANT TO GIVE UP ON

MY DREAM, BUT I KNEW I HAD

TO TAKE A JOB.

I HAD TO PAY SOME BILLS.

AND SO I TOOK A JOB STOCKING

SHELVES AT A GROCERY STORE.

SO I'M WORKING ALL NIGHT

LONG.

WHEN I WOULD GET OFF, I MAY

GET A COUPLE HOURS OF SLEEP,

GO WORK OUT, AND MAKE SURE I

WAS STILL CHASING MY BREEM.

DREAM.

AND THEN MY FUTURE WIFE,

BRENDA, WHO HAD TWO KIDS, I

WOULD HELP TAKE CARE OF

THOSE KIDS WHILE SHE WENT TO

NURSING SCHOOL.

Reporter: WHILE MAKING

JUST 5.50 AN HOUR IN THAT

GROCERY STORE, WARNER GOT

THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY

ARENA FOOTBALL IN IOWA.

I DID THAT FOR THREE

YEARS.

THE WHOLE TIME TRYING TO

FIND A WAY AND TRYING TO

OPEN A DOOR TO GET BACK INTO

THE NFL.

ALTHOUGH I HAD THE DREAM, IT

WAS ONE OF THOSE THINGS

WHERE EVERYBODY AROUND ME

WAS SAYING, OKAY, AT SOME

POINT YOU HAVE TO GIVE THIS

UP.

AT SOME POINT YOU HAVE TO

REALIZE THIS ISN'T GOING TO

HAPPEN.

THEY DON'T GIVE 27-YEAR-OLD

INDIVIDUALS A CHANCE TO PLAY

AND THE NFL.

IT JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN,

ESPECIALLY AT THE

QUARTERBACK POSITION.

WHAT A REMARKABLE

COMEBACK FOR CURT WARNER.

Reporter: APPARENTLY

COACH DICK VERMEAL AT THE

ST. LOUIS RAMS DIDN'T AGREE

AND GIVE CURT A SECOND

CHANCE AT PLAYING IN THE

NFL.

HE SAID THERE WAS

SOMETHING DIFFERENT,

SOMETHING HE NOTICED ABOUT

ME, HE WANTED TO GIVE ME A

CHANCE.

SO HERE I AM, 27 YEARS OLD,

AND A ROOKIE IN THE NATIONAL

FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

Reporter: WARNER WOULD

GO ON TO BE CONSIDERED ONE

OF THE BEST UNDRAFTED

PLAYERS OF ALL TIME,

FOLLOWING A 12-YEAR CAREER,

REGARDED AS ONE OF THE

GREATEST STORIES IN NFL

HISTORY.

WHEN YOU'RE GOING THROUGH

IT, YOU'RE GOING, WHY CAN'T

I BE THE NUMBER ONE DRAFT

PICK?

WHY CAN'T I GET MY

OPPORTUNITY?

WHY CAN'T EVERYTHING PLAY

OUT THE WAY I ALWAYS HOPED

IT WOULD?

BUT NOW, AFTER THINGS PLAYED

OUT AND I SEE HOW GOD USED

THIS STORY, I WOULDN'T

CHANGE A THING.

Reporter: WARNER SAYS

THE FACT HE WAS BLESSED TO

GET A SECOND CHANCE MAKES

HIM THE PERFECT HOST FOR

"THE MOMENT."

EVERYBODY NEEDS SOMEONE

TO STEP IN AND GIVE THEM A

CHANCE TO CHASE THEIR

DREAM.

OR IN A LOT OF CASES, A

SECOND CHANCE BECAUSE LIFE

HAS TAKEN THEM IN A

DIFFERENT DIRECTION.

IT IS LETTING PEOPLE KNOW

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE UP.

IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO BE

WHAT YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO

BE.

I'M A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF

THAT.

Reporter: HE SAYS THE

WHOLE THEME OF SECOND

CHANCES IS SOMETHING THOSE

OF US WHO SERVE A GOD OF

SECOND CHANCES CAN IDENTIFY

WITH.

WHEN I PICK UP THE BIBLE,

THAT'S EVERYBODY'S STORY IN

THE BIBLE.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS ALL

ABOUT.

IT IS GOD TAKING PEOPLE THAT

EVERYBODY SAYS, NO WAY,

CAN'T HAPPEN, NO CHANCE, AND

DOING AMAZING THINGS WITH

THEM.

I'VE GOT YOUR BACK.

THANK YOU.

Reporter: AND THAT'S

THE HOPE OF EACH PERSON

FEATURED IN "THE MOMENT."

THEY'LL HAVE A CHANCE TO

TRAIN WITH AN EXPERT MENTOR

IN THEIR DREAM CAREER,

PREPARE FOR AN INTERVIEW,

AND HOPEFULLY LAND THE JOB

OF A LIFETIME.

CURT, WHAT DO YOU HOPE

PEOPLE WILL TAKE AWAY FROM

"THE MOMENT?"

I HOPE AND PRAY THAT THE

SHOW IS THAT KNOCK AND

EVERYBODY'S DOOR, THAT AS

THEY WATCH THAT SHOW, THEIR

EYES ARE OPEN TO WHAT LIFE

COULD BE, AND NO LONGER ARE

THEY GOING TO ALLOW THINGS

TO HOLD THEM BACK.

THEY'RE TRULY GOING TO CHASE

AFTER WHATEVER IT IS THEY

WANT IN LIFE.

Reporter: WENDY

GRIFFITH, CBN NEWS,

PHOENIX.

Gordon: I LOVE THIS

SERIES BECAUSE IT GIVES

PEOPLE HOPE.

AND YOU NEED TO RECOGNIZE

THAT GOD IS THE GOD OF

SECOND CHANCES.

HE IS ALSO THE GOD OF THIRD

AND FOURTH AND FIFTH, AND

SEVEN TIMES 70 CHANCES.

TAKE A RISK.

LIVE YOUR DREAM.

HE WANTS TO GIVE YOU THE

DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.

YOU CAN WATCH "THE MOMENT"

ON U.S.A. NETWORK ON

THURSDAY AT 10 P.M. EASTERN

TIME.

IF YOU'D LIKE A SHOT AS

MAKING YOUR DREAM COME TRUE

AS A CONTENDER ON THAT SHOW,

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE

INFORMATION AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

GETTING A SHOT AT THE NFL

WASN'T THE ONLY MOMENT THAT

CHANGED CURT WARNER'S LIFE.

UP NEXT, CURT TELLS US ABOUT

THE TIME HE WENT TO A BAR

AND MET HIS WIFE.

Gordon: HE IS A CHILD

STAR WHO HAD IT ALL.

I GOT SHOWN IT, AND

PRETTY MUCH I COULD DO WHAT

I WANTED.

Gordon: BUT HIS DREAM

SOON BECAME A NIGHTMARE.

I REMEMBER GOING UP TO

THE TOP OF THE HOTEL AND

LITERALLY, LIKE, THOUGHT TO

JUMP.

Gordon: MEET THE REAL

BILL MITCHELL ON THE NEXT

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

THE ST. LOUIS RAMS GAVE CURT

WARNER IN THE NFL, BUT HE

WOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN THAT

CHANCE WITHOUT HIS WIFE,

BRENDA.

SPORTS REPORTER SEAN BROWN

SPOKE WITH THEM BOTH ABOUT

THE JOURNEY THAT TOOK THEM

TO THE TOP.

I JUST NOTICED HER FROM

ACROSS THE ROOM.

SHORT, BROWN, SPIKEY HAIR,

WITH THE MINI SKIRT ON AND

THE RED BOOTS, DANCING UP A

STORM OUT THERE.

Reporter: THE TWO HIT

IT OFF, AND AT THE END OF

THE NIGHT, CURT TRIED TO

KISS HER.

THOUGH BRENDA WAS INTERESTED

IN HIM, SHE THOUGHT SHE

NEEDED TO TELL HIM ABOUT HER

SITUATION.

HE LEANED OVER TO KISS

ME, AND I THOUGHT,

SERIOUSLY, I'M NOT PLAYING A

GAME.

I'M 25 AND A DIVORCED MOTHER

OF TWO.

Reporter: THE NEXT DAY,

CURT PAID HER A VISIT, AND

HE WAS MET AT THE DOOR BY

HER 2-YEAR-OLD SON, ZACH.

I WENT OVER THERE TO SEE

HER, BUT THE REAL ENCOUNTER

WAS ABOUT HER KIDS.

SAID HELLO, WALKED IN THE

DOOR, AND IMMEDIATELY SAW

HER KIDS.

HER SON, ZACHARY, GRABBED ME

BY THE HAND AND STARTED

LEADING ME AROUND THE HAND.

Reporter: AND IT DIDN'T

SEEM TO MATTER TO CURT THAT

ZACH WAS BLIND.

THERE ARE THINGS THAT ARE

DEAL BREAKERS, AND THOSE

THERE ARE DEAL-MAKERS.

ZACHARY TOOK HIS HAND, AND

IT DIDN'T MATTER HE WAS

BLIND.

HE JUST KNEW HE WAS KNEW.

HE LAID ON THE FLOOR AND

WRESTLED WITH HIM.

HE INTERACTED WITH THE KIDS,

AND I THOUGHT, THIS IS

SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

Reporter: CURT AND

BRENDA HAD A GREAT

RELATIONSHIP, BUT THERE WERE

THINGS THEY DIDN'T SEE EYE

TO EYE ON, ESPECIALLY WHEN

IT CAME TO HAVING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

HE WOULD TELL ME SOME

DETAIL, AND I WOULD SAY,

SHOW ME THAT IN THE BIBLE.

IF YOU THINK THAT IS THE

CORE OF YOUR SPIRITUAL

BELIEF, SHOW ME.

WE WOULD HONESTLY EITHER

ARGUE ABOUT JESUS OR WE

WOULD DECIDE THAT NIGHT TO

MAKE OUT THAT NIGHT.

IT WAS ONE OR THE OTHER.

THAT WAS OUR DATING

PROCESS.

KIND OF WEIRD.

HE PREFERRED TO MAKEOUT, AND

I PREFERRED TO ARGUE ABOUT

JESUS, UNTIL HE FINALLY GOT

IT.

Reporter: WAS WHAT YOU

BELIEVED IN RIGHT, OR YOU

JUST DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO

FIND IT?

I JUST BELIEVED IN THE

STORY.

I UNDERSTOOD THE STORY.

I UNDERSTOOD THAT JESUS DIED

ON THE CROSS.

I USED THE REFERENCE HE WAS

KIND OF LIKE MY SPARE TIRE.

UP TO THAT POINT, I WAS

DRIVING, I WAS IN CONTROL.

AND IF I EVER NEEDED HIM, I

COULD JUMP BACK IN THE BACK,

AND GRAB MY SPARE TIRE AND

HE COULD HELP ME OUT IN

WHATEVER TRYING TIME THAT

WAS.

Reporter: CURT AND

BRENDA GREW EVEN CLOSER.

CURT FELT THE PRESSURE TO

MAKE ENOUGH MONEY SO HE

COULD MARRY AND HAVE A

FAMILY.

SO HE JOINED A FOOTBALL

LEAGUE WITH THE IOWA

BARNSTORM MERS.

WHE BARNSTORMERS.

AND WHEN HE DID, HE GOT MORE

THAN HE BARGAINED FOR WHEN

THEY INVITED HIM TO A BIBLE

STUDY.

IT WAS REALLY WHEN I

DIDN'T KNOW WHY I BELIEVED

WHAT I BELIEVED.

I THOUGHT, I'M GOING TO

START HAVING ANSWERS.

I'M GOING TO START READING

THE BIBLE AND I'M GOING TO

FIGURE OUT WHY I BELIEVE

WHAT I BELIEVE.

IT WAS THROUGH THAT PROCESS,

AS YOU READ THE SCRIPTURES,

IT IS OBVIOUS THAT IT IS ALL

ABOUT JESUS AND WHAT HE DID

ON THE CROSS AND GIVING YOUR

LIFE TO HIM.

IN THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO

PROVE EVERYBODY AROUND ME

WRONG, I ULTIMATELY PROVED

THEM ALL RIGHT.

Reporter: CURT REALIZED

HE NEEDED TO MAKE A CHANGE.

BRENDA RECEIVED NEWS HER

PARENTS WERE KILLED WHEN A

TORNADO HIT THEIR TOWN IN

ARKANSAS.

I WAS HURTING SO MUCH,

AND YET HE WAS THERE TO

LISTEN AND NOT JUDGE ME, AND

ALSO TO BE THERE FOR JESSE

AND ZACH.

I WASN'T PLAYING WELL ON

THE FOOTBALL FIELD, AND HER

PARENTS WERE KILLED.

IT WAS RIGHT AROUND THAT

TIME WHERE I HAD COME TO THE

REALIZATION I NEEDED TO

COMMIT MY LIFE TO JESUS.

Reporter: DURING THEIR

GRIEF, CURT GAVE HIS LIFE TO

THE LORD.

THINGS CHANGED.

CURT AND BRENDA MARRIED, AND

THEN HE WAS OFFERED TO PLAY

IN A FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

THEN IN 1998, CURT'S DREAM

TO PLAY IN THE NFL WAS

REALIZED WHEN HE SIGNED WITH

THE ST. LOUIS RAMS.

WHAT CHANGED?

WHAT CHANGED WAS THAT I

NO LONGER WAS LOOKING AT ME,

AND I BEGAN LOOKING AT

EVERYBODY AROUND ME, AND

SPECIFICALLY LOOKING AT WHAT

GOD WANTED FOR ME.

THAT WAS A COMPLETE CHANGE

FOR ME.

I REALIZED IT WASN'T ABOUT

ME.

IF IT WORKS OUT IN THE NFL,

IT'S BECAUSE GOD WANTS ME

THERE, AND IT IS FOR ME TO

DO SOMETHING FOR HIM.

Reporter: CURT SPENT

SIX SEASONS WITH THE RAMS,

AND AFTER A SEASON WITH THE

NEW YORK GIANTS, HE MOVED ON

TO THE ARIZONA CARDINALS.

BUT THAT PALES TO HIS ROLE

AS A HUSBAND AND FATHER OF

SEVEN.

I HAD DEATH HIT ME, I HAD

DIVORCE HIT ME, I HAD

INFIDELITY, I HAD A SPECIAL

NEEDS CHILD -- YOU DON'T

KNOW WHAT IS AHEAD.

IT IS A FALLEN WORLD.

I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO SEE IF

YOU BUILD THAT FOUNDATION,

THAT'S WHAT MATTERS.

JUST LIKE OUR MARRIAGE, WE

KNEW WHAT WE BELIEVED BEFORE

THE NFL GAVE US MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS.

SO WHEN THE MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS COME, THAT'S NOT WHO

DEFINES US.

THE NFL DOESN'T.

THE POPULARITY, THE FAME AND

FORTUNE, WE HAD THAT

FOUNDATION BUILT

BEFOREHAND.

IT DOESN'T MEAN

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

PERFECT.

I THINK THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE

GET THE SENSE OF, WHEN THEY

SEE CURT WARNER, AND THEY

HEAR THIS STORY, AND THEY

SEE CURT AND BRENDA, AND

SEVEN KIDS, AND EVERYTHING

IS PERFECT.

IT IS NOT PERFECT.

WE GO THROUGH STRUGGLES, WE

BATTLE TOGETHER, AND WE

STRUGGLE RAISING KIDS.

THE THING LIKE SHE SAID IS

WE ALWAYS KNOW GOD IS WITH

US, AND GOD IS LEADING US,

AND GOD IS GOING TO WORK IT

TOGETHER, NO MATTER WHERE WE

SCREW UP.

I DON'T KNOW HOW WE DO IT

WITHOUT HIM.

I THINK BACK TO THOSE YEARS

WHEN I TRY TO DO IT BY

MYSELF, AND I THINK ABOUT MY

LIFE AND MARRIAGE AND SEVEN

KIDS, AND I'M THINKING,

THERE IS NO WAY I COULD

FIGURE THIS OUT AND BE

SUCCESSFUL BY MYSELF.

I KNOW IT IS ALL ABOUT

JESUS, AND THAT'S WHY WE ARE

WHERE WE ARE.

Gordon: YOU CAN HAVE

THAT SAME ASSURANCE.

WHEN LIFE THROWS THINGS AT

YOU, AND IT WILL -- YOU

LISTEN TO THE THINGS THAT

BRENDA WENT THROUGH.

SHE WENT THROUGH THE DEATH

OF HER PARENTS, THROUGH

INFIDELITY IN HER FIRST

MARRIAGE, AND THEN THROUGH

DIVORCE, AND WITH A

SPECIAL-NEEDS CHILD -- A LOT

OF OVERWHELMING THINGS WERE

THROWN AT HER.

BUT SHE GOT THROUGH HIS ALL

BECAUSE SHE KNEW JESUS, AND

SHE KNEW THAT HE WOULD BE

ABLE TO CARRY HER THROUGH.

THAT'S WHY THE BIBLE

SAYS, "YEAH THOUGH I WALK

THROUGH THE VALLEY OF DEATH,

I SHALL FEAR NO EVIL FOR

THOU ART WITH ME."

IF YOU'RE TRYING TO GO

THROUGH IT ALONE, LISTEN TO

WHAT CURT SAID.

I COULDN'T IMAGINE DOING

THAT.

I COULDN'T IMAGINE IT.

TODAY, IF YOU WANT TO KNOW

IF JESUS IS REAL, IF HE'LL

REALLY HELP YOU, IF HE'LL

REALLY SPEAK WITH YOU, IF

HE'LL REALLY GUIDE YOU AND

WALK WITH YOU, IT'S A VERY

SIMPLE PRAYER.

JESUS, IF YOU'RE REAL, IF

THIS IS REAL, IF YOU'RE MY

SAVIOR, IF YOU DIED FOR ME,

IF YOU ROSE AGAIN, COULD YOU

SHOW ME?

COULD YOU COME INTO MY

HEART?

CAN YOU MAKE ME NEW AGAIN?

CAN YOU FORGIVE ME OF THE

THINGS THAT I'VE DONE

WRONG?

JESUS, CAN YOU DO THESE

THINGS FOR ME?

AND IF YOU PRAY THAT WITH

ALL OF YOUR HEART, THAT'S

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS -- WHEN

YOU SEEK ME WITH ALL OF YOUR

HEART, YOU'LL FIND ME.

IF YOU PRAY IT WITH ALL OF

YOUR HEART, JESUS, IF YOU'RE

THERE, COULD YOU SHOW ME,

HE'LL SHOW UP FO FOR.

HE'LL BE THERE FOR YOU.

IF YOU NEED SOMEBODY TO HELP

YOU WITH THIS PRAYER, ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL US.

Gordon: 10 YEARS AGO,

SE SIERRA LEONE ENDED A

BLOODY CIVIL WAR, AND NOW

PEOPLE THERE ARE WORKING TO

REBUILD THEIR COUNTRY.

AND CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

IS THERE TO HELP.

Terry: HERE IN SIERRA

LEONE, PEOPLE WORK VERY HARD

AND MAKE VERY LITTLE.

I MET A YOUNG MAN NAMED

DENIS, WHO IS AN EXTREMELY

HARD WORKER.

DENNIS HAS BIG DREAMS.

HE LIVED WITH HIS MOTHER, TI

WU IN THIS SMALL HOUSE.

HIS FATHER ABANDONED THE

FAMILY WHEN HE WAS JUST A

BABY.

THEY TRIED TO MAKE A LIVING

BY SELLING CHARACTER COAL

CHARCOAL FOR COOKING, BUT

THEY BARELY MADE 50 CENTS A

DAY.

Reporter: HIS MOTHER

COULDN'T CARE FOR HIM, SO

SHE LET HIM MOVE INTO A HOME

SPONSORED BY "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," AND SHE IS JUST

DOWN THE STREET.

AT THE HOME, PASTOR JACOB

AND HIS WIFE ARE GIVING

CHILDREN OPPORTUNITIES THEY

CAN'T FIND ANYWHERE ELSE.

HERE THEY HAVE FOOD AND A

CHANCE TO STUDY.

DENNIS WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO

GO TO COLLEGE, AND PURSUE

HIS DREAM OF BECOMING A

LAWYER.

HE SAYS WHEN HE GROWS UP, HE

WANTS TO HELP PEOPLE AND

TAKE CARE OF HIS MOTHER.

Reporter: IF WE COULD

TAKE CARE OF YOUR MOM, WOULD

YOU LIKE TO HELP US HELP

HER?

REALLY.

Reporter: WE KNEW THEY

COULDN'T CONTINUE SELLING

CHARCOAL, SO WE GAVE HER A

BIG SURPRISE.

DENNIS HAS A FRESH

BEGINNING, AND NOW YOU NEED

A NEW BEGINNING, RIGHT?

GOD BLESS YOU.

Reporter: THANKS TO

"ORPHANS' PROMISE," DENNIS

CAN LOOK FORWARD TO A BRIGHT

FUTURE, WHILE STILL BEING

CLOSE TO HIS MOTHER, AND

TIWU WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE A

BETTER LIFE, TOO.

BEFORE WE LEFT, WE HAD ONE

LAST LITTLE SURPRISE FOR

DENNIS.

WE SAW THE KIDS PLAYING WITH

AN OLD, FLAT SOCCER BALL,

AND SO WE WENT OUT AND GOT

THEM A NEW ONE.

[YELLING]

[CHEERING]

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR

JESSICA?

GORDON, DENNIS SAYS,

"I'VE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND A

JOB FOR FIVE AMONGST.

MONTHS.

WHY IS GOD NOT BLESSING ME

WITH A NEW JOB.

I'VE BEEN ON SEVERAL

INTERVIEWS, BUT I'VE

RECEIVED NO JOB OFFERS."

Gordon: JANICE, IT IS A

TOUGH ECONOMY, IS MY

ANSWER.

AND FINDING JOBS IN A TOUGH

ECONOMY IS HARD.

IF YOU'VE BEEN AT IT FOR

FIVE MONTHS, YOU MAY BE AT

IT FOR ANOTHER FIVE.

BUT DON'T GIVE UP.

I WOULD ADD TO WHAT YOUR

PRAYING.

I DON'T THINK YOU'RE DOING

ANYTHING WRONG, BUT ADD

ANOTHER PRAYER FOR IT.

START ASKING GOD FOR FAVOR.

AND THEN GET A CONCORDE

CONCORDANCE, AND THEN DO A

COURSE ON FAVOR, AND START

ASKING GOD TO BLESS YOU WITH

THAT.

SO IN YOUR NEXT INTERVIEW,

PRAY FOR FAVOR IN THE

INTERVIEW.

AND THEN I ENCOURAGE THIS TO

ANYONE ASKING FOR A JOB IN

TODAY'S MARKET, GO IN THERE

PREPARED TO TELL THEM HOW

YOU CAN HELP THEM, THAT YOU

REALLY KNOW THAT BUSINESS,

AND THEY'LL LOOK AT YOU AND

SAY, I'M WILLING TO MAKE A

PROFIT ON THIS EMPLOYEE FROM

DAY ONE.

FROM YOU DO THAT, THEN

YOU'LL BE SUCCESSFUL.

LET'S GO BACK TO JESSICA.

GORDON, BECKY WRITES, "MY

DAD IS AN ALCOHOLIC AND HAS

BEEN EMOTIONALLY ABUSIVE TO

ME FOR MY ENTIRE LIFE.

HIS DRINKING HAS PUSHED

EVERYONE AWAY EXCEPT FOR

ME.

I FEEL LIKE I HAVE AN

OBLIGATION TO BE THERE FOR

HIM, BUT EVERY TIME I GO TO

HIS HOUSE, I END UP GETTING

HURT.

I KNOW I HAVE TO FORGIVE

HIM, AND I DO, BUT DOES THAT

MEAN I HAVE TO KEEP PUTTING

MYSELF IN A SITUATION WHERE

HE CAN HURT ME?"

Gordon: BECKY, I

BELIEVE INBOUN IN

BOUNDARIES.

YOU'RE UNDER NO OBLIGATION

TO CONTINUALLY PUT YOURSELF

AT RISK FOR EITHER PHYSICAL

ABUSE OR EMOTIONAL ABUSE.

JUST BE CLEAR AND TELL YOUR

FATHER, I CAN'T TAKE THIS

ANYMORE.

UNTIL YOU COME INTO YOUR

RIGHT MIND, BECAUSE

ALCOHOLICS ARE NOT IN THEIR

RIGHT MIND, I'M NOT GOING TO

BE AROUND YOU.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE

THERAPISTS REFER TO AS TOUGH

LOVE.

IF YOU CAN'T BE AROUND HIM,

THEN YOU DON'T HAVE TO.

IT'S FINE TO FORGIVE HIM.

IT'S FINE TO SET HIM FREE.

AND PRAY FOR HIS SOUL, THAT

GOD WILL SAVE HIM AND

DELIVER HIM, BUT NONE OF

THAT MEANS YOU HAVE TO BE

AROUND HIM AND GET ABUSED.

LET'S GO BACK TO JESSICA FOR

MORE FROM THE CHATROOM.

RICHARD CHATS, "I WAS

JUST DIAGNOSED WITH KIDNEY

CANCER, AND MY WIFE IS

DISABLED, AND I FEEL

OVERWHELMED, AND I COULD USE

PRAYER."

Gordon: JESSICA, WHY

DON'T YOU PRAY FOR HIM.

HEAVENLY FATHER, I THANK

YOU THAT BY THE SPRIEPS OF

STRIPES OF JESUS, WE ARE

HEALED.

FATHER, WE ASK THAT YOUR

KINGDOM COME AND YOUR WILL

BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN

HEAVEN IN RICHARD'S BODY.

AND WE THANK YOU, GOD, THERE

IS NO CANCER IN HEAVEN.

WE THANK YOU FOR BREAKING

THE YOLK OF CANCER.

WE BELIEVE BY FAITH THAT

YOUR WORD IS TRUE, THAT BY

THE STRIPES OF JESUS WE ARE

HEALED.

SO, FATHER, WE ASK THIS IN

JESUS' NAME, FOR THE

COMPLETE AND TOTAL HEALING

OF RICHARD.

THANK YOU, FATHER.

AMEN.

Gordon: AMEN.

WE HAVE PRAYING CHATTERS

HERE, SO IF YOU'RE IN THE

CHATROOM, YOU JUST GOT A

SAMPLE OF HOW THEY'RE

PRAYING FOR YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CHAT

IN YOUR PRAYER REQUEST, AND

WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR THEM.

AND PEOPLE JUST LIKE JESSICA

WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU.

AND WITHIN THE CHATROOM

COMMUNITY, OTHERS WILL BE

PRAYING FOR YOU.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, JUST

CHAT YOUR QUESTION TO THE

CHATROOM, AND WE'LL GET TO

IT.

LET'S GO BACK TO JESSICA FOR

ANOTHER QUESTION.

GORDON, CHRIS WRITES, "I

LOST MY BROTHER TO A DRUNK

DRIVER.

I BATTLE DEPRESSION, AND I

HAVE A SEVERE ANGER

PROBLEM.

I'M AN AGNOSTIC, BUT I'M AT

THE END OF MY ROPE.

I WANT TO ASK GOD FOR HELP,

BUT WHAT DO I DO?

HOW DO I GET SAVED?"

Gordon: CHRIS, I WOULD

ENCOURAGE YOU TO CALL OUR

COUNSELLING CENTER.

YOU'RE GOING TO NEED SOME

PRAYER TO GET YOU THROUGH.

NUMBER ONE, YOU'VE GOT TO

COME TO GRIPS WITH IT WASN'T

GOD'S FAULT THAT YOUR

BROTHER DIED.

THAT WASN'T HIS PLAN.

SO OFTEN WE GET CONFUSED AND

THINK SOMEHOW GOD IS

SOVEREIGN OVER EVERY EVENT

THAT HAPPENS ON THE PLANET,

WHEN HE IS NOT.

AND THAT'S WHY JESUS, IN THE

LORD'S PRAYER, TELLS US TO

PRAY THY KINGDOM COME, THY

WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT

IS IN HEAVEN.

HE WOULDN'T ASK US TO PRAY

THAT IF GOD'S WILL WAS

ALWAYS BEING DONE ON EARTH.

THEN YOU'RE GOING TO NEED

THROUGH THOSE ANGER ISSUES.

BUT FIRST YOU NEED TO START

WITH JESUS, WILL YOU COME

INTO MY HEART.

SO I'VE GOT A TOLL-FREE

NUMBER FOR YOU.

1-888-777-1999.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

IT AND SAY, I WANT TO FIND

JESUS.

I WANT JESUS TO COME INTO MY

HEART.

AND THEY'LL BE GLAD TO LEAD

YOU THROUGH A PRAYER AND GET

YOU TO THE POINT WHERE YOU

KNOW THAT YOU'RE SAVED.

CALL IT, 1-888-777-1999.

WELL, LET'S GO TO JESSICA

FOR ONE MORE CHAT.

GORDON, SANDRA SAYS, "I'M

ABOUT TO GET MARRIED FOR THE

THIRD TIME.

I HAVE PEOPLE TELLING ME

THAT I'M AN ADULTERESS

BECAUSE I'VE BEEN MARRIED

BEFORE.

BUT THAT WAS A LONG TIME

AGO.

MY FIRST HUSBAND CHEATED ON

ME, AND WE DIVORCED.

MY SECOND HUSBAND AND I WERE

MARRIED FOR 25 YEARS UNTIL

HE DIED.

I THOUGHT I WAS FREE TO

REMARRY.

AM I WRONG?"

Gordon: YOU ARE FREE TO

REMARRY.

I'M SORRY PEOPLE ARE QUOTING

THAT TO YOU.

THE FIRST MARRIAGE ENDED ON

BIBLICAL GROUNDS BECAUSE OF

INFIDELITY.

AND THE SECOND MARRIAGE

ENDED AGAIN ON BIBLICAL

GROUNDS BECAUSE YOUR HUSBAND

DIED.

SO YOU'RE FREE TO REMARRY.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE TAKE

MATTHEW 18 TO EXTREMES AND

DON'T REALIZE THERE ARE

EXCEPTIONS, EVEN WITHIN

MATTHEW 18, FOR ADULTERY.

SO BE FREE AND REMARRY.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

WE LEAVE WITH 2 CORINTHIANS

5: "OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED

AWAY.
