A BACK UP SINGER. HOW COCAINE

-- AND WHAT BROUGHT IT BACK.

IN A MATTER OF MINUTES

PEOPLE CAN TRASH YOU AN YOUR

BUSINESS. WHEN A FORMER

EMPLOYEE UNFAIRLY ATTACKED YOU

ONLINE, THERE IS NOTHING YOU

CAN DO WHEN YOUR REPUTATION

SUFFERS.

> THE THRILL DIDN'T LAST

LONG.

DRUGS GOT ME AGAIN. I WAS

TRAVEL, DOING DRUGS, SINGING,

MAKING TONS OF MONEY. A DANCE

DIVA.

THE DRUGS AND ALCOHOL

AFFECTED HER HEALTH AND HER

VOICE AND EVENTUALLY HER RECORD

DEAL. ALL THAT WAS LEFT WAS AN

OUT OF CONTROL COCAINE ADDICT.

MY BODY WAS WAITING OUT.

SHE NEEDED SURGERY BUT HER

BODY WAS TOO WEAK.

MY DOCTOR SAID YOU HAVE TO

STOP DOING DRUGS AND STOP

DRINKING AND STOP SMOKING AND

GET BETTER SO WE CAN DO THIS

SURGERY AND SAVE YOUR LIFE.

IF SHE DIDN'T STOP ABUSING

YOUR BODY, THE RESULTS WERE

INEVITABLE.

SHE SAID YOU ARE NOT GOING TO

JUST DIE. YOU ARE GOING TO GO

TO SLEEP AND NEVER WAKE UP.

SHE KEPT PRAYING.

WE JUST KEPT ON PRAYING. THE

MOST WE CAN DO AT THAT TIME WAS

TO PRAY. I HADN'T SLEPT ALL

NIGHT AND I WAS GOING, LORD,

PLEASE TAKE THIS PRESENT ME.

EITHER LET ME DIE OR GIVE ME

LIFE. SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE.

SHE USED COCAINE UNTIL HER

NEXT DOCTORS APPOINTMENT. SHE

SAID IT WAS CLEAR GOD

INTERVENED IN HER LIFE.

ONLY GOD CAN DO THAT. I DID

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO CHANGE

IT.

AFTER THAT DAY. SHAWN NEVER

WROTE BACK.

FROM THAT DAY IN JULY I

NEVER TOUCHED COCAINE. NO

DESIRE FOR IT. SO I FELL DEEPLY

IN LOVE WITH GOD AND JESUS AND

HIS WAY.

SHAWN IS SINGING ONCE AGAIN,

BUT NOW FOR AN AUDIENCE OF ONE.

NOW I'M GOING TO BE A

BLESSING. MY DEVOTIONS TO GOD

IS ENCOURAGING, UP LIFTING.

WHEN SHE SINGS, I KNOW WHY SHE

IS SINGING, I KNOW WHERE IT'S

COMING FROM AND WHERE IT'S

GOING TO.

HE SEND HIS MERCY A SECOND

TIME. HE JUST LET ME KNOW THAT

I'M HERE NO MATTER WHAT YOU

HAVE DONE, I'M HERE. HE LIFTED

ME OUT OF THE MUCK AND THE MIRE

AND HE SET MY FEET ON A ROCK.

IT WILL TAKE YOU DOWN EVERY

TIME. YET, IN THE FLESH WE WENT

BACK TO TRYING TO FILL THE

EMPTINESS, TRYING TO DEFINE WHO

WE ARE, TRYING TO COVER UP

HURTS AND WOUNDS FROM THE PAST.

WHEN GOD SAYS, I WANT TO GIVE

YOU A NEW NAME, A NEW IDENTITY,

A FRESH BEGINNING. EVEN THOUGH

OUR HEARTS CRY OUT FOR THAT

UNTIL THE MOMENT WE START

COMING BACK TO THE OLD STUFF.

GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU A NEW

NAME, A NEW BEGINNING TODAY AND

IT DIDN'T MATTER WHAT YOU HAVE

DONE. COME HOME TO THE OUR

FATHER GOD. THESE ONE WHO HAS

CREATED. HE'S THE FATHER THAT

DOESN'T LEAVE YOU, HE'S THE

FATHER THAT IS NOT COLD AND

ANGRY AND DIFFICULT TO

COMMUNICATE WITH. HE'S THE

FATHER WHO SEE'S YOU WHO CALLS

YOU HIS OWN, WHO LOVES YOU WITH

EVER LASTING LOVE AND COMES TO

YOU. HE IS COMING TO YOU RIGHT

WHERE YOU ARE AT, RIGHT IN THE

PLACE WHERE YOU ARE AT, RIGHT

AT YOUR POINT OF NEED AND HE'S

SAYING, OH CHILD, I LOVE YOU. I

LOVE YOU. WHAT YOU AND I HAVE

TO DO IS RECEIVE THAT LOVE. WE

HAVE TO SAY YES TO IT. WE HAVE

TO RECOGNIZE THAT WE ARE IN THE

PITS UP TO OUR NECK IN MUCK AND

MIRE BUT THERE IS A HAND

REACHING OUT SAYING GRAB HOLD

OF ME, I'M GOING TO PULL YOU

OUT OF HERE, I'M GOING TO CLEAN

YOU UP, I'M GOING TO GIVE YOUR

LIFE MEANING AND PURPOSE AND

DIRECTION. I AM GOING TO CALL

YOU BY MY NAME. RECEIVE THAT

TODAY. YOU CAN HAVE A NEW

BEGINNING, DID YOU HEAR WHAT

SHE SAID? IT WASN'T HER DOING.

SHE COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT. SHE

WAS IN CAPABLE, BUT THE FATHER

WHO LOVES HER SAID TODAY IS THE

DAY. THAT'S WHAT HE IS SAYING

TO YOU, TODAY IS THE DAY. DRAW

A LINE IN THE SAND, LET ME BE

YOUR ALL IN ALL, LET ME BE THE

FULLNESS THAT IS EMPTY INSIDE

OF YOU. LET ME GIVE YOU A

MEANING AND PURPOSE, A NEW WAY

OF THINKING TO FILL THAT

EMPTINESS, TO HEAL FROM YOUR

PAST. PRAY WITH ME NOW. JESUS,

I SO NEED YOU. I'M ASKING YOU

TODAY BECAUSE OF YOUR GREAT

MERCY AND YOUR GRACE TO COME

INTO THE CENTER OF MY LIFE. I

AM STUCK, GOD. I AM IN A HARD

PLACE. I'M COMING TO YOU AFTER

WATCHING THIS WOMAN'S STORY AND

I'M SAYING PLEASE, REACH DOWN

TO ME TODAY, GRAB HOLD OF ME

TODAY, LIFT ME OUT OF THE MUCK

AND THE MIRE AND SET MY FEET ON

THE ROCK, THE ROCK THAT IS MY

SALVATION. FORGIVE MY SINCE.

I'M ASKING FOR A NEW BEGIN, I

KNOW WHAT I AM WITHOUT YOU, I'M

ASKING YOU TODAY TO GIVE ME AN

IMPRINT WITH YOUR NAME ON IT.

TO CHANGE THE WAY I THINK, TO

SHOW ME THE THINGS IN MY LIFE

THAT YOU WANT TO CHANGE AND

GIVE ME THE TRUST, TO HANG ON

TO YOU. I WANT EVERYTHING THAT

YOU HAVE TO GIVE ME. FILL ME

WITH YOUR HOLY SPIRIT TODAY AND

MAKE MY LIFE FOR YOU AND THANK

YOU FOR ETERNAL LIFE. I RECEIVE

IT ALL TODAY. IN JESUS NAME,

AMEN. THAT'S A BIG DECISION YOU

MADE, AN IMPORTANT ONE. HOW DO

YOU LET GOD COME TO YOUR LIFE

AND CHANGE IT. WE HAVE A PACKET

FOR YOU. IT'S CALLED NEW DAY

FILLED WITH INFORMATION FROM

THE WORD OF GOD AND ADVICE AND

WISDOM HOW YOU GROW, HOW YOU

READ THE BIBLE AND HOW YOU FIND

A NEW CHURCH. CALL THE SCREEN

RIGHT NOW. JUST CALL AND SAY, I

PRAY THAT PRAYER. WE'LL GET

THAT TO YOU RIGHT AWAY.

STILL, THE YOUNGEST DRIVER

EVER TO WIN THE DAYTONA 500.

THAT'S WHAT I WANTED TO BE.

I WANTED TO BE THE YOUNG GUY

AND WIN THE RACES. YOU WANT TO

WIN. THE TOTAL CHAMPION TREVOR

TALKED ABOUT HIS RACING

IF I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING

ABOUT IT.

I WAS WATCHING IT AND I

HEARD HIM SAYING GOD HAS HEARD

YOUR PRAYER. IT WAS JUST A

PERSONAL WORD OF KNOWLEDGE AND

I JUST GOT REALLY EMOTIONAL.

I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO BE

HEALED IN A COUPLE DAYS BUT I

WAS HEALED IN A COUPLE HOURS. I

CAN GO ON THE JOGGING TRAILS

AND DO ALL THE STUFF I WANTED

TO BEFORE. MILLIONS OF WOMEN

WORLDWIDE LOVE THEIR MINERALS.

ONLY BARE MINERALS WHILE IT

COVERS WHAT YOU WANT IT TO.

TREVOR BAYNE WON'T THE DAYTONA

500. AT 20 YEARS OLD HE BECAME

THE YOUNGEST DRIVER EVER TO WIN

THE AMERICAN RACE. WE TALKED

WITH TREVOR ABOUT HIS FAST

TRACK TO FAMILY -- FAME AND

WHAT KEEPS HIM GOING IN HIS

FAITH.

AT THE RIPE OLD AGE OF 21,

TREVOR BAYNE IS STILL A KID AT

HEART.

I EAT MY PEANUT BUTTER AND

JELLY SANDWICH.

HE BECAME THE YOUNGEST

DRIVER TO WIN THE DAYTONA 500.

I WANTED TO BE THE YOUNGEST

GUY COMING IN AND WIN THE

RACES. YOU REALIZE YOU JUST WON

THE BIGGEST RACE THERE IS TO

WIN.

DO YOU JUST GO ON A NORMAL

STREET AFTER GOING 190?

IT DOES. WHEN YOU CRASH, THE

WALLS COME UP REALLY FAST AND

YOU ARE GOING A LOT FASTER THAN

YOU THINK.

I HAVE HAD A COUPLE. BUT NOW

THEY ARE A FEW MILES AN HOUR.

I'M NOT TOO RECKLESS. I TRY TO

BE CAREFUL ON THE ROAD.

TREVOR SAYS HIS CHRISTIAN UP

BRINGING HELPED HIM STAY LEVEL

HEADED ABOUT HIS NEW SUCCESSES.

I ALWAYS GREW UP WITH GOD

AND KNEW ABOUT JESUS BUT IN

MIDDLE SCHOOL I STARTED TO

REALLY LEARN ABOUT WHO HE IS.

AFTER TALKING TO YOU, TALK

TO ME.

WE NEED TO LOOK LIKE JESUS

AND WALK LIKE HIM AND HAVE HIM

CHANGE YOUR LIFE. WHEN YOU

MODEL A PERSON, THAT'S WHAT YOU

ARE GOING TO LOOK LIKE. THAT'S

NOT MY ONLY ROLE MODEL, MY ROLE

MODEL IS JESUS.

GOD IS HERE AND THAT'S WHAT

WE PRAY ABOUT. HE TAUGHT ME

SOMETHING YESTERDAY IN THAT

RACE. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT HIS

PLAN IS BUT YOU STICK WITH HIM

AND HE'S GOING TO HAVE

SOMETHING PLANNED FOR YOU.

LET US DO EVERYTHING WE CAN

TO OUR BEST. IF WE DON'T WIN,

IT'S NOT OUR DAY TO WIN.

SOMETIMES I PRAY TO WIN AND I

THINK THAT WAS ONE OF THOSE

DAYS

TREVOR'S RACE WAS CHALLENGED

WHEN HE WAS FORCED TO RACE FOR

FIVE WEEKS. HE WAS IN THE

HOSPITAL SUFFERING FROM LIME

DISEASE.

I SAID GOD IS SO GOOD. THIS

IS AWESOME. I WENT TO THE

HOSPITAL BED. I JUST TWEETED.

I'M IN THE HOSPITAL, BUT GOD IS

STILL GOOD. IF IT'S ONE PERSON

THAT DOESN'T THINK GOD IS

PERFECT. I THINK WE CAN LEARN

SOMETHING EVERYDAY.

HE SURROUNDS HIS TEAM AROUND

HIS FAITH AND WRITES HIS

THOUGHTS AS THEY ARE COMING TO

HIM.

I WRITE THESE THINGS EVERY

CHANCE I GET. I'M NOT A GREAT

WRITER. THIS IS THE THOUGHT I

HAD. KEEP ME HUMBLE. I'M RACING

TO THE KINGDOM. THIS MEANS THE

DESIRE TO WIN IS NOT OKAY, BUT

NECESSARY. NOT FOR ME TO GAIN

THE WORLD OR MORE FANS, BUT FOR

JESUS NAME TO BE KNOWN. AND

THERE ALONE I WILL STORE MY

TREASURES.

DOES IT WORK?

SO FAR. I HAVE TO GO BACK TO

READ IT. I THINK IT'S

IMPORTANT. WHEN HE GIVES US

SOMETHING, WRITE IT DOWN.

THAT'S WHAT'S HELPING.

HIS BIOGRAPHY TEACHES KIDS

ABOUT NASCAR BUT ALSO JESUS

CHRIST.

WHEN I THINK ABOUT THE KINGS

PURPOSE AND THE TREASURE IN

HEAVEN, THAT'S COOL. WE GET TO

DO THIS FOR HIM AND HE'S

GLORIFIED FOR IT.

BIG OR SMALL, TREVOR BAYNE

PLANS TO STAY WITH GOD.

SOMETHING THAT IS GOING TO

KEEP ME LONGER IS WITH GOD.

THAT CHOICE THAT WILL SAY HERE

IS MY LIFE, USE IT.

HERE IS MY LIFE, USE IT.

WHAT'S YOUR PURPOSE? WHAT ARE

YOU LOOKING FOR IN LIFE? ARE

YOU LOOKING FOR FAME, ARE YOU

LOOKING FOR MONEY? ARE YOU

LOOKING FOR LOVE? WHAT IS YOUR

PURSUIT? WHAT IS YOUR LIFE ALL

ABOUT? WHEN YOU STACK IT UP,

WHAT YOU JUST HEARD OUT OF

TREVOR OR HEARING THE YOUNGEST

TO EVER WIN THE DAYTONA 500 AND

HE IS SAYING, ALL OF THAT IS

NEXT OF CHRIST IS NOTHING. MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS IS THE

MOST IMPORTANT THING I HAVE

GOT. I DON'T DRIVE FOR MYSELF.

I'M DRIVING FOR HIM, I'M LIVING

FOR HIM. I'M PUTTING MY FOCUS

ON HEAVEN. AND DID YOU HEAR THE

HOPE IN HIS VOICE? DID YOU SEE

THE LIGHT IN HIS EYE? THAT CAN

BE YOURS IF YOU JUST ASK FOR

IT. IF YOU JUST SAY, JESUS,

HERE IS MY LIFE. USE IT. AND DO

THAT EVERYDAY JUST LIKE TREVOR

DOES AND SAY, OKAY I WANT TO

LIVE FOR YOU. I WANT TO BE WITH

YOU. NOW, SOME OF YOU ARE

THINKING, I HAVE GONE TOO FAR.

I HAVE MESSED UP SO MANY TIMES.

THERE IS NO WAY GOD WOULD WANT

MY LIFE. THAT'S GOOD FOR

TREVOR, I'M GLAD HE WAS RAISING

IN A GOOD HOME, BUT THERE IS NO

WAY GOD LOVES ME.

I HAVE GOOD NEWS FOR YOU. JESUS

IS A FRIEND, A SINNER. THEY

CRITICIZED HIM BECAUSE HE

WANTED TO HANG OUT WITH

PROSTITUTES, TAX COLLECTORS. HE

WANTED TO FIND THE LEPERS, THE

DEMON POSSESSED. HE WANTED TO

SET PEOPLE FREE. SO HE WANTS TO

COME TO YOU. HE WANTS TO COME

TO YOU. OTHERS ARE SAYING,

ALONG AGO I WAS A CHRISTIAN,

BUT THEN I STARTED TO LIVE FOR

ME AND I WALKED AWAY AND THERE

IS NO WAY GOD WANTS ME. WELL, I

HAVE GOT GOOD NEWS FOR YOU TOO.

YOU CAN ALWAYS COME HOME. YOU

CAN ALWAYS RESPOND TO THAT

KNOCK AND TURN TO HIM AND HE'LL

SET YOU FREE AGAIN AND AGAIN

AND AGAIN. THERE IS NO LIMIT TO

HIS LOVE, THERE IS NO LIMIT TO

HIS MERCY. YOU CAN BE FREE

AGAIN. YOU CAN HAVE THE JOY OF

YOUR SALVATION RESTORE. NOW,

HOW DO YOU DO IT? YOU ASK FOR

IT. THAT'S SIMPLE. AND JESUS

WILL COME IN BECAUSE THAT'S HIS

PROMISE. HIS PROMISE IS THIS,

BE HOLD I STAND AT THE DOOR AND

KNOCK. HE'S NOT WAITING FOR

YOU. HE'S NOT OFF SOMEWHERE FAR

OFF IN HEAVEN. HE'S STANDING

NEXT TO YOU AND HE'S KNOCKING

AND HE'S SAYING IF ANYONE HEAR

MY VOICE AND OPEN THE DOOR, I

WILL COME IN. SO BE THAT. IF

YOU WANT IT. IF YOU WANT A

RELATIONSHIP, IF YOU WANT TO

JESUS IS REAL, HE WILL HEAR

YOUR VOICE, HE WILL INSPIRE YOU

AND GIVE YOU LOVE IF YOU WANT

THAT. BOW YOUR HEAD. LET'S PRAY

TOGETHER AND LET JESUS DO ALL

REST. LET'S PRAY. JESUS, THAT'S

RIGHT, SAY HIS NAME OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I OPEN THE DOOR OF MY

HEART AND I ASK THAT YOU COME

IN. I ASK THAT YOU SET ME FREE,

THAT YOU FORGIVE ME, THAT YOU

CLEANSE ME. AND JESUS I

ESPECIALLY ASK THAT YOU GIVE ME

YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, YOUR PEACE

AND YOUR JOY AND THAT YOU WOULD

SPEAK TO ME. SO OPEN MY EARS,

THE EYES OF MY UNDERSTANDING,

THAT I MIGHT KNOW THE GREATNESS

OF YOUR POWER. BE WITH ME NOW

FOR I ASK IT IN JESUS NAME,

AMEN. FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO

JUST PARADE, -- PRAYED, I ASK

FOR BAPTISM AND FILL THEM WITH

LOVE AND PEACE AND JOY. DO IT

NOW, I ASK IT IN JESUS NAME,

AMEN.

JIM IS 38, MORTGAGE,

MARRIED. THREE GREAT KIDS AND

HE WANTS TO PROTECT HIS FAMILY

WITH A 500,000 LIFE INSURANCE

POLICY.

A COUPLE IN OUR NEXT STORY

HAD NO JOB AND CREDIT CARDS.

THEY MADE ONE SMALL INVESTMENT.

FERNANDO WAS LOOKING TO

RETIRE FROM THE POSTAL SERVICE

BUT THEY WERE IN DEBT. HE

SUFFERED FROM A HEART ATTACK

AND THEY HAD MEDICAL BILLS AND

SOON REALIZED THEY COULDN'T

LIVE ON THEIR PENSION ALONE.

WE DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH.

ONE BILL AND WE PAID THE

FOLLOWING ONE.

THE COUPLE USED CREDIT CARDS

TO PAY THEIR MORTGAGE AND

UTILITIES AND THEIR DEBT GREW.

I WAS GIVING UP AND VERY

FRUSTRATED WITH IT.

FERNANDO TOOK A JOB AS A

SECURITY JOB, MEANWHILE SHE WAS

WATCHING THE 700 CLUB EVERYDAY.

A COUPLE PRINCIPALS YOU IGNORE.

IT'S NOT WHAT DO YOU WHEN

YOU HAVE EXTRA. IT'S SOMETHING

THE LORD ASKS US TO DO FOR A

SPECIFIC PURPOSE, TO TEST OUR

OBEDIENCE AND TO POUR THE

BLESSINGS THAT HE GIVES US.

SHE STARTED TO GIVE TO THE

CHURCH. SHE INCREASED HER

GIVING.

I WENT TO THE PHONE AND I

REQUESTED I WANT TO GIVE MORE.

THEY DO WHAT THE LORD HAS ASKED

ME TO DO

THEN FERNANDO GOT A NEW JOB

WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF

CORRECTIONS. WITH THE INCREASE

IN PAY, THEY PAID OFF ALL THEIR

DEBT.

WITH THE LORD WE JUST GAVE

BACK. I KNOW HE'S REAL AND I

KNOW HE'S LOVE AND I KNOW HE

KEEPS ALL OF HIS PROMISES EVERY

SINGLE ONE OF THEM.

HE DOES FOLLOW HIS PROMISE.

HERE IS THE PROMISE, GIVE AND

HE WILL GIVE UNTO YOU. YOU CAN

COUNT ON IT. IF YOU HAVE MONEY

TROUBLE, THE WAY OUT IS

UNDERSTAND THE PRINCIPLES

BEHIND TITHING THAT WHEN YOU DO

THAT, HE OPENS THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POURS OUT BLESSINGS

YOU CAN -- CONTAIN. THAT'S HIS

BLESSING. YOU TEST IT WITH

TITHES AND OFFERING AND WHEN

YOU DO THAT, YOU GET THE SAME

RESULT. THAT CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU

IF YOU JUST PUT THE PRINCIPLE

INTO PRACTICE. THE WORLD SAYS

WHEN YOU HAVE ENOUGH YOU CAN

GIVE. THE BIBLE SAYS GIVE AND

IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU. YOU

WANT TO DO THAT AND SAY I WANT

TO START GIVING, CALL US.

PURPOSE OF MONEY. I ALWAYS

THOUGHT THAT WE HAD TO HAVE A

LOT TO GIVE. THE MORE I GAVE,

THE MORE GIFTS WOULD COME. I

WOULD LIKE TO SAY IT'S MY GREAT

SKILLS. IT'S NOT. I'M

OBEDIENT. IT HELPS ME TO FIND

A WAY TO CHANGE THE WORLD FOR

CHRIST. MY BUSINESS HAS GROWN

FIVE TIMES SINCE I GIVEN TO

CHRIST. I CAN'T WAIT TO WRITE

THE CHECK. IT'S THE BEST

INVESTMENT THAT I CAN IMAGINE.

YOU CAN'T OUT GIVE GOD.

MELANIE IS ALIVE TODAY

BECAUSE OF THE POWER OF PRAYER.

AFTER GIVING CHILD BIRTH SHE

WAS DECLARED DEAD. THAT DOESN'T

STOP HER FROM FACING THE GLOBE

THROUGH FACEBOOK AND TWITTER.

WE THOUGHT IT WAS THE

REGULAR RUN OF THE MILL OF

PREGNANCY AND DELIVERY. THEY

HAD BROKEN HER WATER TO SPEED

IT UP AND SHE STARTED TO NOT

FEEL WELL AND SHE STARTED TO

SLUMP OVER AND HER EYES ROLLED

BACK AND SHE STARTED

CONVULSING. SHE'S NOT

BREATHING. THEY CALLED COLD

BLUE AND THEY ROLLED HER OUT

THE DOOR.

MELANIE WAS RUSHED TO THE

OPERATING ROOM. SHE WAS DYING

FROM AN AMNIOTIC EMBOLISM WHICH

CAUSED HER HEART AND LUNGS TO

SHUT DOWN. SHE WAS NOW FIGHTING

FOR HER OWN LIFE.

MY WIFE WAS CLINICALLY DEAD.

THEY THOUGHT THERE WAS NO WAY

SHE COULD COME BACK. WE WERE

GOING THROUGH AN EMOTIONAL

ROLLER COASTER. I'M A WIDOWER

AND ONLY MARRIED FOR THREE

YEARS. WE JUST PRAYED AND

PLEADED WITH GOD THAT HE MAY

BRING HER BACK.

THE NEXT 48 HOURS WERE LONG

AND DIFFICULT. DOCTORS WERE

ABLE TO RESUSCITATE MELANIE. AS

SHE LAY UNCONSCIOUS, HE WAS

ALLOWED TO SEE HIS NEW

DAUGHTER.

HER EYES WERE JUST LIKE HER

MOTHER. AND THE NURSE ASKED ME

WHAT WAS HER NAME AND I SAID

GABRIELA. THAT WAS THE SWEETEST

PART OF MY LIFE. THAT SHE MAY

NOT BE THERE AND I WOULD HAVE

TO RAISE HER ON MY OWN.

MEANWHILE HIS BROTHER

ARRIVED AND STARTED TO REVIEW

HER CASE.

SHE WAS NOT GETTING BETTER,

SHE WAS GETTING WORSE.

THEY ASKED US TO SAY OH YOU

ARE GOODBYES BECAUSE SHE WASN'T

GOING TO MAKE IT. I REMEMBER I

SAID IF YOU HAVE ANY FIGHT IN

YOU, FIGHT.

I COULDN'T IMAGINE IT WAS MY

SISTER.

HE SOON DISCOVERED HER LOW

BLOOD PRESSURE WAS THE RESULT

OF THIS.

THEY FOUND A UTERINE ARTERY

RELEASING ALL OF HER BLOOD.

IMAGINE 5 LITERS OF BLOOD IN

ALL OF YOUR BODY.

SHE WAS CONSCIOUS AND

TRANSPORTED FOR ANOTHER

SURGERY.

HER EYES WERE WELLED WITH

TEARS. I SAID I'M SO PROUD OF

YOU. I WANTED HER TO KNOW THAT

I WAS THERE AND THAT I LOVED

HER SO MUCH. HER SISTER CAME

AND HAD SHE NOT SURVIVED THE

SURGERY WE WANTED HER TO BE

ABLE TO SEE GABRIELA.

SHE ARRIVED WITH A WEAK

PROGNOSIS WHERE DOCTORS BEGAN

TO CLOSE HER ABDOMEN.

DOCTORS THOUGHT SHE WOULD

HAVE SOME SERIOUS MEDICAL

IMPAIRMENT.

BY NOW THE FAMILY HAD

GATHERED AT THE HOSPITAL TO

PRAY FOR MELANIE.

I REMEMBER SEEING EVERYBODY

AT ONE POINT OR INTO JUST

HANGING THEIR HEADS IN PRAYER

AND COMING TO THE HOSPITAL WERE

PROVIDING INFORMATION TO

EVERYONE ON FACEBOOK AND

TWITTER FOR PRAYER.

THIS MADE TWITTER'S TOP 100

LIST.

WE GOT FEEDBACK FROM MIDDLE

EAST AND CHINA THAT WERE

SHARING THEIR PRAYERS WITH US.

THAT'S A MIRACLE THAT SHE

HAD SO MANY PRAYERS HELPING HER

OUT.

WITHIN 24 HOURS OF HER FINAL

SURGERY, MELANIE WAS BREATHING

ON HER OWN AND WITHIN A WEEK

SHE WAS RELEASED TO GO HOME.

I WOKE UP WITH INCREDIBLE --

MY FIRST MEMORY WAS ASKING THEM

WHAT HAPPENED LIKE SPEAKING UP

IN CONFUSION. WHY AM I HERE?

WHERE IS GABRIELA.

SHE HAS NO RESIDUAL EFFECTS,

NO CARDIAC AFFECTS. SHE'S AS

GOOD AS SHE CAN BE.

GABRIELA IS HEALTHY. NO

PROBLEMS WITH HER. INCREDIBLE.

IT DEFINITELY SHOWED ME THE

POWER OF PRAYER. I DON'T

REMEMBER ANYTHING THAT HAPPENED

IN THE HOSPITAL. THIS IS TRAGIC

AND TRAUMATIC. SO MANY PEOPLE

WERE PRAYING LIKE CRAZY. I

REMEMBER WEEPING AND CRYING AND

THINKING HOW CAN PEOPLE LOVE ME

SO MUCH. IT'S AMAZING. ALL I

CAN CARE ABOUT IS HAVING ENOUGH

AIR IN MY LUNGS TO TELL MY

HUSBAND HOW MUCH HE MEANS TO ME

AND BEING THERE FOR MY FRIEND

AND MY FAMILY.

HER SURVIVAL IS A MIRACLE. I

THINK IT'S CLEAR THAT GOD

ANSWERS PRAYERS.

I ALWAYS PARADE -- PRAYED

THAT THE LORD WOULD PROTECT ME.

BECAUSE OF ALL THE MOVEMENT, I

BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRAYER

BUT NOW THAT I LIVED IT, I

BELIEVE IT A HUNDRED TIMES

MORE.

IT'S TRUE, ONCE WE HAVE

EXPERIENCED GOD AND HIS POWER

IT'S JUST DIFFERENCE. TO MANY

OF YOU I KNOW HAVE NEEDS THAT

YOU HAVE LISTED THAT OUR KING

WOULD DO MORE THAN MEET THEM.

GORDON, THIS IS DENNIS IN

PHOENIX ARIZONA. DOCTORS GAVE

HIM NO GUARANTEES THAT AN

OPERATION WOULD HELP. HE

STARTED MEDICATION FOR 22

YEARS. CONSTANT PAIN IN THE

BACK AND LUNGS WHERE HE WAS

TAKING MORPHINE ON A DAILY

BASIS. LAST YEAR HE WAS PLACED

ON OXYGEN. THEN HE WATCHED THIS

PROGRAM ABOUT THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE ABOUT HEALING FROM

LUNG PROBLEMS AND THEN YOU GAVE

A WORD ABOUT A MAN WHO HAD

PROBLEMS WITH THREE BULGING

DISK IN THE BACK. THE VERY NEXT

DAY, HE DISCONTINUED TAKING

MORPHINE AND NO WITHDRAWAL

SYMPTOMS AND NO MORE PAIN. HE

STOPPED TAKING THE OXYGEN AND

WHEN HIS OXYGEN LEVEL WAS

TESTED, IT WAS NORMAL.

THAT'S A MIRACLE. FIVE

YEARS. SUFFERING FROM A

HERNIATED DISK, IT FELT LIKE AN

ELECTRONIC CURRENT AND TRAVELED

THROUGH HER LEG . SHE TOOK

SHOTS FOR THE PAIN BUT NOTHING

HELPED. TERRY, YOU HAD A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE FOR SOMEONE WITH A

PROBLEM WITH A LOWER PART OF

THE SPINE, GOD IS CORRECTING

THAT FOR YOU RIGHT NOW. WELL,

INSTANTLY, STEPHANIE FELT A

TOTAL ABSENCE OF PAIN. SHE

HASN'T HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH

HER BACK. THAT IS A MIRACLE.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU. WHAT IS

JESUS SAY? ALL YOU NEED IS THE

FAITH. ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS

BELIEVE. WE WANT TO ADD SO MUCH

OTHER THINGS. WE WANT TO EARN

IT. WE WANT TO FIND SOME

SPECIAL MAGIC FORMULA. NO,

JESUS IS THE ANSWER. HE IS THE

ONE. HE DIED FOR YOU AND BY HIS

STRIPES, YOU WERE HEALED. ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE. SO

LET'S PRAY. LET'S CREATE A

GREAT CIRCLE OF PRAYER

THROUGHOUT THE NATION AROUND

THE WORLD AND LET'S SAY, I

BELIEVE IN GOD. IF YOU HAVE

NEED, LAY YOUR HAND ON THAT

AREA ON YOUR BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING. IF YOU DON'T, PRAY

WITH US, THE BIBLE SAYS IF TWO

OR MORE TOUCH ANYTHING. IT

SHALL BE DONE. LET'S CREATE A

WORLD WIDE CHAIN OF PRAYERS AND

LET'S LET GOD DO THE MIRACLES.

LORD, WE TRUST YOUR UNFAILING

LOVE, WE TRUST YOU AND RELY ON

YOU AND WE ASK THAT YOU LAY

YOUR HANDS ON THE AREA THAT

NEEDS HEALING AND WE SAY OUT

LOUD, BE HEALED AND BE MADE

WHOLE.

THERE IS A WOMAN WITH A

RUPTURED DISK ON HER BACK AND

THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE ANY KIND

OF RELIEF IS WHEN YOU CURL UP.

GOD IS HEALING IT RIGHT NOW.

HE'S PUTTING IT BACK INTO

PLACE. HE'S TAKING ALL THAT

PAIN AND DISCOMFORT. YOU JUST

FELT IT. STAND UP AND RAISE UP

AND REALIZE GOD HAS HEALED YOU.

THERE IS JUST EVERYTHING,

ACHES, GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW AND RESTORING YOUR MUSCLES

AND TENDONS. TAKE THAT GIFT AND

RECEIVE THAT HEALING.

GOD IS TAKING ALL THAT PAIN

AWAY FROM YOU NOW IN JESUS

NAME.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN TOUCHED AND

WANT TO SHARE YOUR REPORT, GIVE

US A CALL. BELIEVING THESE

WORDS FROM JESUS AND MATTHEW,

IF YOU HAVE FAITH, NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU. GOD BLESS

YOU.

DISCOVER A DEEPER
