Terry: WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN A MAN WHO LIKES TO PRAY

MEETS A MAN BOUND TO A

WHEELCHAIR.

HE HAD A NECK BRACE ON

AND A BACK BRACE ON.

HIS LEGS WERE STRAPPED TO

THE WHEELCHAIR.

I JUST ASKED HIM, MAN, DO

YOU MIND IF I PRAY FOR YOU.

Terry: FIND OUT ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

Gordon: ON "700 CLUB

OTHER AND EXPLORE TOPICS

THE WORLD TODAY.

*

Terry: HI, EVERYBODY,

GOOD MORNING, AND WELCOME TO

THE PROGRAM.

WELL, GORDON IS OUT TODAY,

SO JOINING US IS THE

MANAGING DIRECTOR OF "THE

700 CLUB," ANDREW KNOX.

GOOD MORNING, TERRY.

Terry: USUALLY WE'RE

MEETING IN THE OFFICES

BEHIND THE SCENES --

IT IS A TREAT, I GET TO

THTO SIT AND HAVE A CUP OF

COFFEE WITH MISS AMERICA.

AND WE GET TO SEE GOD DOING

MIGHTY WORK IN PEOPLE.

I LOVE THIS FIRST STORY

BECAUSE WE REALLY GET TO

EXPLORE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A

YOUNG MAN FEELS A DIRECTIVE

FROM GOD, WHERE GOD SAYS, I

WANT YOU TO DO THIS.

AND THIS YOUNG MAN HAS BEEN

PRAYING FOR THAT KIND OF

DIRECTION, BUT WHEN IT

APPEARS LIKE GOD ISN'T

LIVING UP TO THIS END OF THE

BARGAIN, WHAT KIND OF FEAR

CREEPS INTO OUR MINDS.

Terry: SOMETIMES IT

KEEPS US FROM DOING WHAT GOD

WANTS US TO DO.

LET'S SEE WHERE THAT GOES.

WE WANT TO SHARE THE

STORY OF TWO PEOPLE WHO'S

LIVES CROSSED AND AN UNUSUAL

WAY.

BOTH MEN KNEW GOD, BUT

NEITHER EXPECTED HIM TO DO

SOMETHING SO BIG.

MY NAME IS JEAN.

I'M FROM HAITI.

I'VE BEEN LIVING IN GEORGIA

FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS NOW.

I DON'T REMEMBER NOTHING

ABOUT THE ACCIDENT.

I JUST REMEMBER WAKING UP IN

THE HOSPITAL.

I WAS HEADING BACK TO

CAMPUS.

I GO TO SCHOOL AT THE STATE

UNIVERSITY.

IT WAS RAINING, AROUND 3:00

IN THE MORNING.

I REMEMBER TALKING TO MY

FRIENDS, AND I FELL ASLEEP.

THE CAR HYDROPLANED, AND THE

NEXT THING I KNOW IS I WOKE

UP IN THE HOSPITAL.

WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE

HOSPITAL, EVERYTHING FELT SO

UNREAL.

MY MOTHER CAME TO ME AND SHE

TOLD ME THAT I'VE BEEN

UNCONSCIOUS FOR A FULL DAY.

I'VE BROKEN MY LEFT HAND,

AND I'VE ALSO FRACTURED MY

NECK.

THE DOCTOR REALLY MADE IT

CLEAR THAT I WAS NEVER GOING

TO WALK.

I WOKE UP JUST LIKE A NORMAL

DAY.

IT WAS A NORMAL DAY FOR ME,

OTHER THAN THROUGHOUT THE

DAY, I WAS GOING TO GO TO A

CONFERENCE.

I DIDN'T FEEL ANYTHING

SPECIAL.

I DIDN'T FEEL ANYTHING NEW.

ALL DAYS THROUGHOUT THE

CONFERENCE, THE PHRASE

"PEOPLE GET OUT OF

WHEELCHAIRS," "WHEELCHAIR,

WHEELCHAIR, WHEELCHAIR"

SEEMED MOST EVIDENT TO ME.

SO ALL DAY I WAS LOOKING FOR

SOMEONE IN A WHEELCHAIR.

AT THE MALL, THOUGH, I

DIDN'T FIND ANYONE.

SO I WENT ACROSS THE STREET

TO ANOTHER SHOPPING CENTER.

I END UP ON THE SECOND FLOOR

AND MEET A GUY IN A

WHEELCHAIR.

I BOLDLY APPROACH HIM AND I

PRAYER FOR HIM.

WE DON'T SEE ANYTHING HAPPEN

RIGHT AWAY.

I GO DOWN AND FIND ANOTHER

LADY IN A WHEELCHAIR ON THE

WAY OUT.

SAME THING, BOLDLY APPROACH

HER, PRAY FOR HER, AND

NOTHING TANGIBLE IN THE

MOMENT HAPPENS.

I DISCOURAGED AFTER

SEEMINGLY FAILED TWICE.

BUT KNEW THERE WAS A BREATH,

A WIND, ON THAT WORD ABOUT

WHEELCHAIRS.

RIGHT THEN A GROUP OF PEOPLE

COME DOWN, AND OUT OF MY

RIGHT EYE, THERE IS FOUR

MORE PEOPLE IN WIND-CHILLS.

TH WIND-CHILLS --

WHEELCHAIRS.

THE WHOLE STORE WAS RUN BY

PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS.

WE WERE SUPPOSED TO DO

SOME PRACTICE SHOPPING, YOU

KNOW, IN A WHEELCHAIR.

AND THEN I WAS WITH MY

SISTER, AND WE WERE RIDING

AROUND IN THE SHOE AISLE.

I GOT SCARED, AND, LIKE,

THIS FEAR CAME OVER ME, AND

I DUCKED INTO ANOTHER

AISLE.

I ENDED UP IN A SHOE AISLE,

TRYING TO GAIN COURAGE, GAIN

CONFIDENCE, AND TRYING TO

PUMP MYSELF UP.

THAT'S WHEN I NOTICED THE

THIRD GUY THAT I SAW IN A

WHEELCHAIR.

HE COMES AROUND THE CORNER.

HE HAD A NECK BRACE AND A

BACK BRACE ON.

HIS LEGS WERE STRAPPED TO

THE WHEELCHAIR.

NO MOVEMENT AT THE TIME IN

HIS BODY.

HE SAID HE HAD A HARD TIME

FEELING HIS LEGS.

I ASKED HIM, MAN, DO YOU

MIND IF I PRAY FOR YOU?

I KNOW THAT GOD HEALS, AND

GOD GETS PEOPLE OUT OF

WHEELCHAIRS.

I WOULD LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY

TO PRAY FOR YOU.

I WAS, LIKE, WELL, SURE.

GO AHEAD.

AND AS HE PRAYED, I COULD

FEEL MY SPINE MOVE.

LIKE IT FEELS LIKE AN INNER

DEEP-TISSUE MASSAGE, WHERE

IT IS THE BONE ITSELF BEING

IN MOTION AND MOVING AND

SHIFTING AND TURNING.

IT JUST FELT HOT.

HE TOUCHED MY KNEE -- BOTH

OF MY KNEES, AND I COULD

FEEL THE HEAT.

THAT WAS A DIFFERENT

FEELING, OUT OF THIS WORLD.

WE TAKE THE STRAPS OFF

HIS LEGS, IN CASE THERE WAS

A BREAKTHROUGH, TO BE ABLE

TO TEST IT.

AND ONE OF HIS LEGS GOES UP

AFTER A COUPLE OF MINUTES.

WE THINK MAYBE IT IS A

MUSCLE SPASM.

WE KIND OF TRIED TO REASON

IT OUT LOGICALLY, IN THE

NATURAL.

AND THEN WE ASKED TO DO IT

AGAIN, AND NOW HE IS

VOLUNTEERL VOLKSWAGENVOL

VOLUNTEERLY MOVING HIS

LEGS.

AND WE'RE PRESSING IN.

GOD, YOU'RE NOT DONE YET.

YOU'RE NOT A GOD OF PARTIAL

HEALING.

YOU'RE A GOD OF FULL

HEALING.

WE'RE EXCITED AND TEARY

TEARY-EYED, AND IT JUST

FEELS GOOD.

THE ATMOSPHERE AROUND THAT

AISLE WAS CHANGING.

TRYING TO NOT BE OFFENSIVE,

HEY, DO YOU WANT TO TRY TO

STAND UP.

I TRIED TO STAND UP, AND

I STOOD UP, AND MY SISTER

WAS AMAZED.

WE WERE ALL BLOWN AWAY.

IT FELT LIKE WHEN YOU ARE

AT THE BEACH AND A WAVE

CRASHES OVER YOU.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THIS

PRESENCE COMES UP, AND IT

SWEPT, I BELIEVE, ALL THREE

OF US AWAY.

A GIRL AND A GUY CRYING.

I'M CRYING, BUT HALF

LAUGHING.

IT IS THE AWKWARD,

IN-BETWEEN PHASE.

WE STARTED HUGGING AND

EMBRACING EACH OTHER.

GOD HAD JUST SHOWED UP.

TEARS ON EACH OTHER'S

SHOULDERS.

AND WE EXCHANGE PHONE

NUMBERS, AND THE GUY GOES

AND I GO BACK INTO THE

CONFERENCE, AND I GO BACK

AND SHARE THE TESTIMONY OF

REVIVAL SHOWING UP IN AN

EVERYDAY STORE.

I LEARNED THIS GUY'S NAME

WAS JOHN.

IT WASN'T JUST A ONE-TIME

ENCOUNTER WE SHARED IN THAT

STORE.

WE DEVELOPED A

RELATIONSHIP.

WE DEVELOPED A FRIENDSHIP.

I STARTED TO VISIT HIM

DURING HIS STAY AT THE

SPINAL CENTER.

I STARTED TO PRESS THE

BREAKTHROUGH WITH HIM.

WE STARTED TO BECOME

FRIENDS.

NOW WE ARE HANGING OUT.

WE CALL IT GETTING INTO

TROUBLE.

WE WILL GO AND FIND PEOPLE

AND PRAY FOR THEM.

IT HAS BEEN REALLY

WONDERFUL.

I HAVE SEEN A LOT HAPPEN IN

OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES.

HE IS PLUGGED IN AROUND

LOCAL CHURCHES, AND I'M

PLUGGED IN AROUND LOCAL

CHURCHES, AND HIS ONE GOAL

WAS TO ALWAYS PLAY SOCCER

AGAIN, BUT THE INJURY WAS

GOING TO STOP HIM.

AND HERE I AM PLAYING

SOCCER AGAIN.

THIS IS THE 2010 AFRICAN

MATCH BALL.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE IT CAME

FROM GOD, TELLING ME, JEAN,

GO OUT INTO THE FIELD AND GO

AND PLAY.

BECAUSE I'VE SAVED YOU AND

I'VE GIVEN YOU YOUR LEGS

BACK.

GOD IS SO POWERFUL, AND

HE'S SO GOOD.

AND IN A WORLD WHERE HOPE

SEEMS TO BE LOST, HE CAN

PICK SOMEONE LIKE ME, AN

ORDINARY GUY, THE SAME AS HE

CAN TAKE SOMEONE LIKE YOU,

WHO FEELS LIKE YOU'RE AN

ORDINARY PERSON, AND IN FUSE

HOPE INTO WHAT YOU CARRY AND

WHAT YOU BRING TO THE WORLD

AND WHAT YOU HAVE TO OFFER,

AND WE CAN SEE STUFF LIKE

THIS BE THE GREATER THINGS

OF GOD, THE DEAF, THE BLIND,

THE LAME, THE POOR, THE

SICK, AND WE CAN SEE GOD USE

US PERSONALLY TO CHANGE THE

WORLD.

Terry: KNOWING OUR GOD,

WE SHOULDN'T BE ASTONISHED

AT THIS, BUT IT IS AN

ASTONISHING, AMAZING, JOYFUL

STORY OF THE POWER OF GOD AT

WORK.

BECAUSE, AS DREW SAID, ONE

SIMPLE MAN STEPPED OUT IN

FAITH AND BELIEVED.

IT SHOWS THAT SOMETIMES

OUR FEAR AND OUR

DISOBEDIENCE KEEPS OTHER

PEOPLE FROM BEING BLESSED.

IF HE NEVER OVERCAME HIS

FEAR, THIS MAN WOULDN'T BE

PLAYING SOCCER.

REMEMBER IN 1 SAMUEL, AND

THEY'RE TRYING TO MAKE SAUL

KING, AND THEY CAN'T FIND

HIM.

AND THE LORD SAID, HE IS

HIDING AMONG THE BAGGAGE.

AND THIS YOUNG MAN GETS

SCARED AND HE HIDES IN THE

SHOE AISLE.

IT TAKES COURAGE TO ACT.

Terry: IT REALLY DOES.

I THINK WHAT IT IS, YOU

DON'T WANT TO BE

PRESUMPTUOUS.

BUT KNOWING OUR GOD, HE IS

THE GOD WHO HEALS.

HE TOLD US THAT HIMSELF.

I TOTALLY RELATE TO HIDING

BECAUSE YOU ARE AFRAID TO

STEP OUT.

YOU DON'T WANT TO DISAPPOINT

THE OTHER PERSON, IF GOD

DOESN'T SHOW UP AT THAT

MOMENT.

AND YET GOD SAYS, I WANT YOU

TO STEP OUT FOR PEOPLE.

AND WE WANT TO DO THAT WITH

YOU TODAY.

MANY OF YOU ARE WATCHING,

AND YOU HAVE NEEDS.

THEY MAY BE PHYSICAL NEEDS,

LIKE JEAN'S WAS, OR MAYBE

THERE IS AN ADDICTION, OR

YOU'RE STRUGGLING WITH

SOMEBODY WHO IS LOST -- IT

CAN BE MANY, MANY THINGS,

BUT WE WOULD LIKE TO PRAY.

LET'S PRAY BELIEVING, AS GOD

HEARS OUR PRAYER, AND WE

KNOW THAT HE DOES BECAUSE HE

PROMISES US THAT.

LET'S PRAY THAT GOD WILL

SPEAK INTO THE NEEDS OF YOUR

LIVES.

ANDREW AND I WILL JOIN HANDS

AND PRAY AND ASK GOD TO COME

NOW.

FATHER, WE HAVE NOWHERE ELSE

TO GO.

WE KNOW THAT YOU ARE THE

ANSWER, YOU ARE THE HEALER,

YOU ARE THE ONE.

AND SO, FATHER, WE BOW OUR

HEARTS AND OUR KNEES AND OUR

MINDS AND OUR LIVES TO YOU

RIGHT NOW.

YOU KNOW ALL OF YOUR

CHILDREN.

YOU SAY THAT OUR NAME IS

CARVED IN THE PALM OF YOUR

HAND.

SO, GOD, AS YOUR CHILDREN

CRY OUT TO YOU TODAY, WE'RE

ASKING FOR MIRACLES.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO SPEAK

RIGHT INTO THEIR NEED A WORD

OF HOPE, GOD.

A WORD THAT SAYS, I AM THE

LORD WHO SEES YOU.

I HEAR YOUR PLEAS.

I AM THE GOD OF POWER, WHO

CAN TOUCH AND CHANGE YOUR

LIFE.

LORD, SPEAK INTO THE HEARTS

AND MINDS OF THOSE WHO CRY

OUT TO YOU RIGHT NOW.

TERRY MENTIONED

ADDICTION.

I PRAY AS PEOPLE SEEK TO

CONQUER ADDICTION TO DRUGS,

ALCOHOL, OR PORNOGRAPHY,

THAT IT IS NOT JUST A

PROCESS OF LEAVING THE SIN

AND THE ADDICTION, BUT

FOLLOWING JESUS.

IT IS THE PER SUI PURSUIT

OF JESUS.

LORD, WE PRAY FOR THOSE WITH

ADDICTIONS, THAT IN THE NAME

OF JESUS RIGHT NOW, THOSE

ADDICTIONS ARE BOUND AND

BROKEN IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: THANK YOU,

LORD.

THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE WHO IS

CRYING OUT.

I DON'T KNOW YOUR SITUATION

AT ALL, BUT YOU HAVE A

CHILD, A SMALL CHILD, AND I

BELIEVE IT IS A LITTLE

GIRL.

AND YOU'RE IN A SITUATION

WHERE THAT LITTLE GIRL IS

NOT WITH YOU.

AND I DON'T KNOW ALL OF THE

DETAILS OF IT, BUT IT HAS

SOMETHING TO DO WITH A LEGAL

SCENARIO.

GOD HAS HEARD YOUR HEART

CRY.

DON'T FOCUS ON YOUR LITTLE

GIRL.

FOCUS ON THE LORD.

LET HIM TOUCH YOUR LIFE,

CHANGE YOUR LIFE, TEACH YOU,

LOVE YOU, HEAL YOU, MAKE YOU

WHOLE.

HE IS THE RESTORER OF ALL

THINGS, AND HE WILL RESTORE

THAT RELATIONSHIP AS WELL.

I WANT TO ECHO WHAT TERRY

IS SAYING.

IT IS ABOUT FOCUSING ON THE

LORD.

AND NOT FOCUSING ON THE SIN

AND THE GUILT AND THE

SHAME.

IT IS ABOUT FOCUSING ON THE

LORD AND HIS HEALING POWER.

WE COME AGAINST FEAR -- FOR

PEOPLE WATCHING US RIGHT

NOW, THE FEAR OF FINANCIAL

PROBLEMS, FEAR OF DEATH AND

ILLNESS, FEAR OF NOT

MEASURING UP.

Terry: YEAH.

THE BIBLE SAYS BE ANXIOUS

FOR NOTHING, AND THAT JESUS

GIVES US A PEACE THAT THE

WORLD DOES NOT GIVE OR

UNDERSTAND.

AND WE CLAIM THAT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME, THAT SPIRIT OF

PEACE.

Terry: THANK YOU, GOD.

TO COME UPON THE VIEWERS,

IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: AND SOME OF YOU

HAVE A FEAR -- YOU'RE EVEN

AFRAID TO SAY IT, THAT GOD

IS NOT ENOUGH, THAT HE'LL

NOT BE THERE, THAT HE WON'T

BE YOUR ALL IN ALL.

AND HE IS SPEAKING A LOVE

LETTER TO YOU RIGHT NOW,

THAT NOTHING CAN SEPARATE

YOU FROM HIS LOVE.

HE IS ALL THAT YOU NEED.

HE HEARS YOUR VOICE.

HE IS AVAILABLE.

EVEN AS YOU PRAY, HE IS

ALREADY AT WORK IN THE THING

THAT YOU'VE ASKED FOR.

TRUST HIM NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.

AMEN.

AMEN.

LISTEN, IF YOU HAVE A PRAYER

NEED IN YOUR LIFE AND YOU

WANT TO PRAY SPECIFICALLY

ABOUT THAT WITH SOMEONE, WE

HAVE PEOPLE STANDING BY AT

OUR TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

IT'S 1-888-777-1999.

JUST CALL THAT NUMBER.

ON THE OTHER END IS SOMEONE

WHO HAS WALKED WITH,

COMMITTED THEIR LIFE TO, AND

EXPERIENCED THE HEALING

POWER OF GOD, AND THEY'D

LOVE TO PRAY WITH YOU

TODAY.

COMING UP, SPEAKING OF

HEALING POWER, A LITTLE BOY

DIES AND THEN GETS UP AND

WALKS.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS

STORY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: SOCCER IS THE

WORLD'S MOST POPULAR SPORT,

AND ONE NIGERIAN BOY NAMED

ABRAHAM SAYS IT IS POPULAR

IN HEAVEN, TOO, BECAUSE ONE

DAY HE PLAYED THERE.

HERE IS HIS STORY.

Reporter: 6-YEAR-OLD

ABRAHAM WAS ALL HIS MOTHER,

ANGEL, HAD.

HER HUSBAND LESTER THE LEFT

THEM WHEN LITTLE ABRAHAM WAS

ONLY SIX MONTHS OLD.

BUT ANGEL'S JOY WAS TAINTED

BECAUSE LITTLE ABRAHAM WAS

ALWAYS SICK.

I LOVE MY SON AND DID ALL

I COULD TO SAVE HIM.

HE SUFFERED FROM ASTHMA

SINCE HE WAS A BABY.

I WORKED VERY HARD JUST TO

PAY HIS MEDICAL BILLS.

ONE DAY HE WAS VERY PALE AND

BARELY BREATHING.

BY THE TIME HE CAME TO

THE HOSPITAL, ABRAHAM HAD

ASTHMA AND ANEMIA.

HIS TEMPERATURE WAS LOW,

THIS BREATHING WAS LABORED,

AND HIS BODY WAS COLD.

I KNEW HE WOULD NOT

SURVIVE.

SO I TOLD THEM TO GO HOME.

Reporter: BUT ABRAHAM

NEVER MADE IT.

HE DIED ON THE WAY HOME FROM

THE HOSPITAL.

WHEN I DISCOVERED HE WAS

DEAD, I WANTED TO DIE

MYSELF.

Reporter: IN THEIR

VILLAGE, IT IS CONSIDERED

TABOO TO BURY SOMEONE ON A

FRIDAY, SO ABRAHAM'S BODY

WAS KEPT UNTIL THE NEXT

DAY.

AS THE MOURNERS GRIEVED,

SOMEONE SAID THEY SHOULD

CALL AN EVANGELIST WHO IS

SUPPORTED BY CBN.

WHEN THE PASTOR ARRIVED, HE

ENCOURAGED THEM AND SAID

THEY SHOULD BELIEVE IN GOD.

THEN HE SAID A PRAYER AND

PLAYED TAPES OF CBN SHOWS.

I SHOWED THEM THAT A

MIRACLE WOULD HAPPEN AND THE

ABRAHAM WOULD RESURRECT.

BUT THE VILLAGE SAID, HOW

CAN A PERSON WHO DIED OVER

24 HOURS AGO RISE AGAIN.

BUT I WAS ENCOURAGED WITH

GOD, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

HOSTS BEGAN TO PRAY FOR

MIRACLES.

AT THAT MOMENT, AN AMAZING

THING HAPPENED.

WE WERE ALL SURPRISED TO

SEE THE BODY.

JUST WHEN THEY WERE READY TO

TAKE HIM AWAY FOR BURIAL, HE

CAME BACK TO LIFE.

AND PEOPLE WERE SHOCKED.

THEN HE AROSE, AND WE

THANKED GOD.

IT IS NO STORY.

IT HAPPENED.

THE BOY WAS DEAD, BUT AFTER

224 HOURS, HE ROSE UP

AGAIN.

Reporter: IMMEDIATELY A

GREAT CELEBRATION BROKE OUT

IN THE VILLAGE.

BECAUSE OF THAT MIRACLE,

DOZENS OF PEOPLE GAVE THEIR

LIVES TO CHRIST, INCLUDING

THE DOCTOR WHO HAD TREATED

ABRAHAM.

I WAS AN IDOL WORSHIPPER,

AND I NEVER KNEW THE POWER

OF GOD.

BUT WHEN I GOT TO THE

VILLAGE AND HEARD ABOUT

ABRAHAM'S MIRACLE, I

ACCEPTED CHRIST.

MANY OF MY DOCTOR FRIENDS

GAVE THEIR LIVES TO CHRIST,

TOO.

Reporter: WHEN ABRAHAM

WENT BACK TO THE HOSPITAL,

THE DOCTOR GAVE HIM A CLEAN

BILL OF HEALTH.

HE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE ASTHMA

ANYMORE.

THOUGH HE CAN HARDLY

REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO

BE SICK ALL THE TIME, HE HAS

VIVID MEMORIES OF WHAT IT

WAS LIKE IN HEAVEN.

I WAS IN A PLACE, AND

EVERYBODY THERE WAS HAPPY.

WE PLAYED SOCCER AGAIN.

THEY SAID I SHOULD GO BACK

HOME.

I THANK GOD FOR CBN

AFRICA.

THIS MIRACLE HAS TRULY

CHANGED OUR LIVES AND THE

LIVES OF OTHERS.

ANDREW?

COMING UP, A CAMPER FALLS

OFF A CLIFF AND LANDS IN A

RIVER 60 FEET BELOW.

I KNEW SOMETHING WAS

WRONG.

AND I LOOKED UP, AND CARTER

WASN'T TO BE SEEN.

FROM THAT MOMENT ON, I

THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD.

FIND OUT HOW HE SURVIVED

THE FALL, NEXT.

COLLEGE STUDENT CARTER

CRUTCHFIELD WAS ON A CAMPING

FIELD WITH FRIENDS.

UNTIL A FREAK ACCIDENT SENT

HIM FLYING OFF THE CLIFF,

AND INTO THE FRIGID WATERS

30 FEET BELOW.

Reporter: THEY WENT

CAMPING IN NORTH ALABAMA

WITH A FEW FRIENDS.

I SAW A PERFECT, MOST

BEAUTIFUL CAMP SITE OVER A

60-FOOT VALLEY.

Reporter: EVERYTHING

WAS GOING AS PLANNED.

THE TENTS WERE UP, AND THE

CAMPFIRE WAS BURNING.

THEN THE FIRE STARTS TO

DIE DOWN.

THAT'S WHERE THE INCIDENT

STARTS TO HAPPEN.

Reporter: THE GUYS

SPLIT UP TO LOOK FOR MORE

FIREWOOD.

I HAD A BIG RIM THAT I

PUT BEHIND THE FIRE.

I WAS JUMPING ON TOP OF IT

TO GET IT TO CRACK.

ONE OF TWO THINGS HAPPENED,

I COULDN'T GET IT TO BREAK

AND IT ACTED AS A

SPRINGBOARD, OR IT BROKE

BEFORE I WAS EXPECTING AND

IT CRACKED AND I FELL

BACKWARDS AFTER LOSING MY

BALANCE.

I KNEW SOMETHING WAS

WRONG.

I LOOKED UP, AND CARTER

WASN'T TO BE SEEN.

SO I KNEW IMMEDIATELY WHAT

HAD HAPPENED.

Reporter: CARTER FELL

60 FEET INTO THE RIVER

BELOW, BOUNCING OFF A

SMALLER LEDGE ON THE WAY

DOWN.

I TOLD MILLER TO

IMMEDIATELY GO GET CELL

PHONE SERVICE AND TRY TO

CALL FOR HELP.

IT WOULD TAKE ME TWO MINUTES

TO GET DOWN TO THAT SMALLER

LEDGE AND REALIZED HE WASN'T

THERE.

I IMMEDIATELY BACK TRACKED.

FINALLY AFTER THREE, FOUR

MINUTES, I MADE MY WAY BACK

TO THE RIVER.

Reporter: CARTER WASN'T

FLOATING, SO PATRICK

SEARCHED UNDER THE WATER.

AFTER TWO OR THREE TIMES,

I KICKED SOMETHING.

I KNEW WHAT IT WAS.

I BROUGHT CARTER TO THE

SURFACE.

AND IT DIDN'T EVEN LOOK LIKE

CARTER.

FROM THAT MOMENT ON, I

THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD.

Reporter: PATRICK AND

KEITH PULLED CARTER TO THE

EDGE OF THE WATER, AND

PATRICK STARTED C.P.R.

EIGHT MINUTES PASSED, AND

I WAS GETTING TIRED.

KEITH AND I SWAPPED

POSITIONS.

I HELD HIM UP ON THE ROCK,

AND HELD HIS NECK STABLE,

AND HE BEGAN THE CHEST

COMPRESSION.

AFTER A FEW MORE MINUTES, WE

SWAPPED AGAIN.

AND THEN WE HEARD THIS

GURGLING NOISE.

IT SOUNDED ALMOST LIKE A

DRAIN.

WATER GOING DOWN A DRAIN.

Reporter: THEY DID

C.P.R. FOR 12 MINUTES, UNTIL

CARTER STARTED TO BREATHE.

AND THEN HE ONLY TOOK ONE

SHALLOW BREATH PER MINUTE.

CARTER'S SHOULDER BLADE WAS

VISIBLE, HIS EAR WAS

PARTIALLY TORN OFF, BUT THE

MOST LIFE-THREATENING INJURY

WAS TWO COLLAPSED LUNGS.

THE PARAMEDICS AND

HELICOPTER ARRIVED 45

MINUTES AFTER THE ACCIDENT.

AT THE HOSPITAL, THE DOCTORS

HAD HIS PARENTS FILL OUT

ORGAN DONOR FORMS.

THE SURGEON BASICALLY

TOLD US THAT HIS CONDITION

WAS GRAVE.

AND THAT HIS CHANCES OF

SURVIVAL WERE SLIM.

WE'RE GUESSING THAT HE WAS

OXYGEN-DEPRIVED SOMEWHERE

BETWEEN 20 MINUTES OR MORE.

SO THAT'S A LONG TIME.

THE GUIDANCE THAT WE WERE

BEING GIVEN FROM THE MEDICAL

STAFF EARLY ON WAS THAT SOME

LEVEL OF SERIOUS COGNITIVE

IMPAIRMENT WAS TO BE

EXPECTED.

Reporter: CARTER MADE

IT THROUGH THE NIGHT, BUT

PATRICK AND CARTER'S DAD

KNEW PRAYER WAS THEIR ONLY

HOPE.

RIGHT WHEN WE GOT THERE,

MR. CRUSHFIELD LED US INTO A

PRAYER.

HE STARTED A POSTING ON A

WEBSITE CALLED "CARING

BRIDGE."

WHERE HE POSTED CARTER'S

UPDATES AND PUT SPECIFIC

THINGS TO PRAYER FOR.

WE ONLY PUT FOUR OR FIVE

SPECIFIC REQUESTS EACH

UPDATE, BUT HERE IS WHERE

THE MIRACLE WAS, IS THAT

EACH -- AND I'M GOING TO GET

EMOTIONAL BECAUSE BETWEEN

EACH UPDATE, THE SPECIFIC

REQUESTS WERE BEING

ANSWERED.

SO THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT

HE WAS HEARING -- HE WAS

ANSWERING OUR PETITIONS.

EVERY SINGLE PRAYER,

EVERYTHING HE SAID TO PRAY

FOR, ACTUALLY MIRACULOUSLY

CAME TRUE.

I THINK I LOOKED ONE TIME,

AND HE HAD BEEN POSTING THIS

FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS, AND

THERE WAS OVER 1300

RESPONSES.

THERE WAS THIS INTIMACY

THAT I CAN ONLY ENVISION AS

BEING WHAT HEAVEN IS GOING

TO BE LIKE IN SOME WAY,

RIGHT?

BECAUSE YOU JUST HAD THIS --

YOU KNEW THAT THESE PEOPLE

WERE PRAYING FOR YOU AND

YOUR FAMILY, AND THERE WAS

THE COMMON BOND OF CHRIST

THAT WAS CONNECTING US.

Reporter: AFTER TWO

WEEKS, CARTER WOKE FROM A

COMA.

HE WAS HIMSELF WHEN HE

WOKE UP.

IT WAS TRULY, FROM OUR

PERSPECTIVE, MIRACULOUS.

I FEEL LIKE IT REALLY WAS

A MIRACLE, JUST FOR THE

SIMPLE STATS THAT THE DOCTOR

GAVE, AND THE CHANCES THEY

GAVE ME FOR SURVIVAL, AND

JUST FALLING 60 TO 65 FEET

OFF A CLIFF AND SURVIVING.

I FEEL, LIKE, JUST THE FACT

THAT GOD ALLOWED ME TO

SURVIVE AND GAVE THAT

OPPORTUNITY TO ME IS A

MIRACLE.

GOD HEARD THE PRAYERS OF

ALL THESE PEOPLE ON OUR

BEHALF TO PRAY FOR OUR SON.

AND HE ANSWERED THEM, AND TO

HIS GLORY.

WA A POWERFUL STORY.

TERRY, WHAT I LOVE ABOUT

THAT BESIDES THE HEALING IS

THE UNITY THAT CAME ABOUT BY

SO MANY PEOPLE PRAYING.

Terry: UNBELIEVABLE.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE DO ON

THIS PROGRAM, WE HAVE

UNITY.

MARGUERITE IS IN THE

CHATROOM, WHAT ARE YOU

READING OVER THERE THAT IS

COMING IN?

TWO PEOPLE, LINA, A

PHYSICAL EDUCATION TEACHER,

WHO NEEDS PRAYER FOR HER

RIGHT HIP, AND CINDY IS

ASKING FOR A PRAYER FOR HER

DAUGHTER-IN-LAW, WHO HAS A

PROBLEM WITH HER OVARIES,

WHO IS TRYING FOR ANOTHER

BABY.

WE DECLARE IN CINDY, AND WE

ASK FOR IT TO BE HEALED,

LORD, AND WE WELCOME THIS

NEW BABY, LORD, IN JESUS'

NAME.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PEACE,

LORD, AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR

JOY IN THIS PROCESS, LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, GOD, WE LIFT UP

LINA TO YOU WHO LOVES HER

JOB, BUT WHO IS HAVING

TROUBLE DOING IT.

GIVE HER HEALING IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

WE PRAY SHE FEELS YOUR

HEALING TOUCH AND POWER, AND

YOU RESTORE HER FULLY IN

JESUS' NAME.

Terry: WE WANT TO LEAVE

YOU TODAY REMINDING OF THIS

WORD FROM JOHN 14: "YOU CAN

ASK FOR ANYTHING IN MY NAME,

AND I WILL DO IT SO THAT THE

SON CAN BRING GLORY TO THE

FATHER."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN NEXT

TIME.
