THIS WEEK ON CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS, DESPERATION IN

THE PHILIPPINES.

TENS OF THOUSANDS ARE

WITHOUT FOOD, WATER OR

SHELTER, AS RELIEF WORKERS

STRUGGLE TO DELIVER

MUCH-NEEDED HELP.

AND THE U.S. STEPS IN THE

FIGHT AGAINST AN AFRICAN

TERRORIST GROUP.

BOKO HARAM HAS KILLED

THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS.

YOU'LL MEET ONE MAN WHO

SURVIVED TO TELL HIS STORY.

PLUS, A SHOCKING REPORT FROM

BELGIUM.

A PROPOSAL THAT WILL MAKE IT

LEGAL TO KILL CHILDREN IN

THE NAME OF COMPASSION.

AND WELCOME TO THIS

WEEK'S EDITION OF CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS.

I'M EPHRAIM GRAHAM.

GEORGE AND WENDY ARE BOTH ON

ASSIGNMENT.

IT HAS BEEN A WEEK OF

DESPERATION, ANGUISH, AND

ANGER IN THE CENTRAL

PHILIPPINES.

IN THE AFTERMATH OF TYPHOON

HAIYAN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS

ARE HOMELESS, AND MANY MORE

NEED FOOD AND WATER.

AS SEARCH EFFORTS PICK UP

THE PACE, THE DEATH TOLL

CONTINUES TO RISE.

OFFICIALS SAY THE DEAD COULD

TOP 10,000.

IN THE MIDST OF ALL THE

SUFFERING, THE PEOPLE ARE

TURNING TO THE CHURCH TO

MAKE IT THROUGH THESE

TROUBLED TIMES.

GEORGE THOMAS REPORTS NOW

FROM TACLOBAN.

*

Reporter: IT IS ALMOST

IMPOSSIBLE TO IMAGINE, BUT A

HEAVENLY CHORUS IS RISING IN

THE MIDDLE OF SO MUCH

HEARTACHE AND DEVASTATION.

ONE WEEK AFTER THEIR LIVES

WERE TURNED UP SIDE DOWN,

NEWLYWEDS REELLEN AND RADLY

RODOLFO SAY THERE IS NO

BETTER PLACE TO BE THAN

EVENING MASS.

WE CAME TO PRAY FOR OUR

CHILDREN, OUR FAMILIES.

Reporter: FAITH IS ALL

THAT KEEPS THEM GOING.

ONLY GOD CAN HELP US.

Reporter: FOR DECADES,

THIS CHURCH HAS STOOD AS A

PILLAR IN THIS COMMUNITY OF

TACLOBAN, BUT THEN LAST WEEK

ON FRIDAY A DEVASTATING

STORM AND A MASSIVE WALL OF

WATER CAME RUSHING TOWARDS

THE CHURCH.

AND TODAY IT IS FILLED WITH

WATER, DEBRIS STREWN ON ONE

SIDE OF THE CHURCH, BUT YET

IT HAS NOT SHAKEN THE FAITH

OF THE CONGREGATION

MEMBERS.

THIS IS NOT SUPPOSED TO

BE A TIME FOR US TO COMPLAIN

TO GOD.

Reporter: FATHER OLIVER

IS ONE OF THE VICKERS AT

SANT ONINO, HE HAS THE

DIFFICULT TASK OF SPEAKING

LIFE AND HOPE INTO A CITY

THAT HAS LITTLE OF EITHER.

IN ORDER FOR US TO

REALIZE THAT EARTH IS NOT

THE END OF LIFE, BUT THERE

IS HEAVEN.

Reporter: A WEEK AFTER

TYPHOON HAIYAN CUT A PATH OF

DESTRUCTION ACROSS CENTRAL

PHILIPPINES, INTERNATIONAL

RELIEF AGENCIES FACE THE

DAUNTING TASK OF AIDING

HOMELESS SURVIVORS.

LIKE MARIAM, DIRTY, HUNGRY,

AND THIRSTY, AND DAYS AWAY

FROM GIVING BIRTH.

SHE, HER HUSBAND, AND

1-YEAR-OLD SON LIVE IN THIS

SMALL SHACK.

WE'RE SO AFRAID OF

PANICKING, THAT WE DON'T

KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Reporter: ROADS TO AND

FROM THE CITY ARE ALMOST

IMPASSEABLE.

LITTERED WITH DEBRIS, CARS,

AND FALLEN TREES.

AS AUTHORITIES CONTINUE TO

FIND THE DEAD, THE LIVING

ARE DESPERATELY SEARCHING

FOR FOOD, WATER AND

SHELTER.

SOME ARE STILL LOOKING

THROUGH THE REMAINS OF

DESTROYED HOMES, STILL

SEARCHING FOR MISSING LOVED

ONES AND BELONGINGS.

ON THE STREETS OF TACLOBAN,

HUNDREDS OF SOLDIERS ARE ON

WATCH, SETTING UP NUMEROUS

CHECK POINTS TO STOP LOOTING

AND THE OCCASIONAL VIOLENCE,

BUT SPEND SOME TIME HERE AND

YOU BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THE

SCALE OF THE DISASTER AND

THE CHALLENGES FACING THIS

NATION.

500,000 PEOPLE ARE HOMELESS,

AND NEARLY FOUR MILLION HAVE

BEEN AFFECTED BY THE STORM.

LATE THIS WEEK, A HOPEFUL

SIGN AS SURVIVORS LINED UP

FOR HANDOUTS OF RICE AND

WATER.

BACK AT SANT ONINO, THE

FATHER CONTINUES TO

ENCOURAGE THE FAITHFUL NOT

TO GIVE UP.

SUFFERING COMES IN ORDER

FOR US TO REALIZE EARTH IS

NOT THE END OF LIFE.

BUT THERE IS HEAVEN.

Reporter: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS, TACLOBAN,

PHILIPPINES.

AUTHORITIES HAVE DECLARED

MARSHAL LAW IN TACLOBAN CITY

TO CONTAIN LOOTING AND

VIOLENCE.

IT IS ALSO MESS T NECESSARY

TO MAKE SURE FOOD AND WATER

REACHES THE PEOPLE.

LUCILLE TALUSEN HAS MORE

FROM TACLOBAN.

Reporter: OUR CBN NEWS

TEAM CAUSES A SCENE IN

DOWNTOWN TACLOBAN.

PEOPLE RUNNING AT PEOPLE

SHOOTING AT SECURITY

FORCES.

VIOLENCE, ROBBERY AND

LOOTING ARE RAMPANT IN THE

AFFECTED AREAS BECAUSE

PEOPLE ARE HUNGRY.

TONS OF RELIEF GOODS ARE

COMING IN FROM DIFFERENT

PARTS OF THE WORLD, BUT SAD

TO SAY DISTRIBUTION HAS BEEN

VERY SLOW.

THE PEOPLE FACE DEATH

BECAUSE THERE IS NO FOOD OR

WATER.

ON TOP OF THAT, THERE IS THE

STENCH AND SIGHT OF DEAD

BODIES ROTTING IN THE SUN.

BEHIND ME ARE BLOATED, DEAD

BODIES THAT ARE STILL LINING

UP THE STREETS.

AND THE STORM HAPPENED LAST

FRIDAY, AND YET THEY ARE

STILL HERE.

RESIDENTS HERE FEAR THE

UNBURIED DEAD WILL SPREAD

DISEASE AND MORE DEATH.

MARIA MORENO IS ONE OF THOSE

DESPERATE TO GET OUT OF

TACLOBAN CITY.

HER WHOLE FAMILY, 17

MEMBERS, HAVE BEEN WAITING

IN HIS AIRPORT FOR TWO

DAYS.

WE WILL DIE HERE IF WE

DON'T LEAVE.

NOTHING IS LEFT.

WE LOST OUR HOUSES,

EVERYTHING.

AND IT IS NOT SAFE ANYMORE.

LAWLESS MEN RUN IN THE

HOUSES, AND WE HAVE

NEIGHBORS WHO WERE KILLED

AND RAPED.

WE DON'T KNOW WHERE TO GO,

BUT WE HAVE DECIDED TO BEGIN

A NEW LIFE SOMEWHERE ELSE.

Reporter: MARIA IS A

REGULAR VIEWER OF "THE 700

CLUB" ASIA.

WHEN SHE LEARNED WE WERE

FROM CBN, SHE IMMEDIATELY

ASKED FOR PRAYER.

AND AS THE TEAM PRAYED FOR

HER, SHE SURRENDERED HER

LIFE TO JESUS.

WE ALSO SHARED OUR FOOD AND

WATER WITH THE FAMILY.

NOT KNOWING HOW LONG THEY

WOULD HAVE TO WAIT FOR A

FLIGHT OUT.

AFTER SEVERAL HOURS A VERY

HAPPY MARIA TOLD US THE

WHOLE FAMILY WAS GETTING ON

A FLIGHT.

IT IS SO HARD TO GET A

FLIGHT, BUT THEY ARE

ACCOMMODATING ALL OF US.

THANK YOU FOR PRAYING,

BECAUSE NOW I FEEL LIGHT AND

MY HEADACHE IS GONE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH "700

CLUB."

Reporter: BUT TENS OF

THOUSANDS ARE STILL TRAPPED

HERE, IN DESPERATE NEED OF

THE ASSISTANCE THAT

ORGANIZATIONS LIKE CBN

DISASTER RELIEF IS

DELIVERING.

LUCILLE TALUSEN, CBN NEWS,

TACLOBAN, PHILIPPINES.

THE VICTIMS OF TYPHOON

HAIYAN, CHECK OUT OUR

WEBSITE AT cbnnews.org,

DISASTER RELIEF."

COMING UP, TARGETING A

TERRORIST GROUP THAT HAS

KILLED THOUSANDS OF AFRICAN

CHRISTIANS.

HEAR ONE MAN'S STORY OF

SURVIVING THE BOKO HARAM.

NORTH KOREA HAS EXECUTED

80 PEOPLE BY FIRE SQUAD FOR

OWNING A BIBLE OR WATCHING

TV.

THE STORY SAYS THE

EXECUTIONS WERE HELD IN

SEVEN CITIES EARLIER THIS

MONTH.

IN ONE PLACE, THE LOCAL

GOVERNMENT GATHERED 10,000

PEOPLE, INCLUDING CHILDREN,

AND FORCE THE THEM TO

WATCH.

RELATIVES AND FRIENDS OF THE

VICTIMS WERE REPORTEDLY SENT

TO PRISON CAMPS.

NORTH KOREA IS THE WORST

PUR PERSECUTORS OF

CHRISTIANS IN THE WORLD.

ABEDINI'S FATHER TRIED TO

VISIT HIM THIS WEEK, BUT HE

WAS TURNED AWAY.

OFFICIALS TOLD HIM THE

PASTOR COULDN'T HAVE HIS

BELONGINGS.

ABEDINI IS IMPRISONED IN A

FACILITY WHERE HE SURROUNDED

BY THOUSANDS THE VIOLENT

CRIMINALS, INCLUDING

MURDERERS, RAPISTS, AND

ADDICTS.

IT IS ALSO A PLACE TO DUMP

POLITICAL PRISONERS.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT IS

OFFICIALLY DE DESIGNATING

BOKO HARAM AS A TERRORIST

GROUP.

THEY HAVE ATTACKED CHRISTIAN

CHURCHES, HOMES, AND

BUSINESSES.

DESIGNATING THE GROUP A

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION MEANS

BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL

TRANSACTIONS WITH THE

ORGANIZATION ARE BLOCKED.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT SAYS IT

IS AN IMPORTANT STEP TO HELP

NIGERIA ROOT OUT VIOLENT

EXTREMISM.

IN NOVEMBER 2012, NIGERIAN

CHRISTIAN ABILA ANSWERED HIS

DOOR TO FIND A GROUP OF BOKO

HARAM MILITANTS.

THEY SHOT HIM IN THE HEAD

WITH AN AK-47, BUT HE

SURVIVED.

THIS WEEK HE TESTIFIED

BEFORE THE U.S. CONGRESS AND

HE JOINS US NOW FROM OUR

D.C. BUREAU.

WHY DID BOKO HARAM TRY TO

KILL YOU THAT NIGHT?

BECAUSE I AM A

CHRISTIAN.

YOU KNOW, IN UBI, THERE ARE

FEW CHRISTIANS IN UBI.

THE BOKO HARAM IS GOING

HOUSE BY HOUSE, VILLAGE TO

VILLAGE, TOWN TO TOWN,

KILLING CHRISTIANS.

THEY CAME TO ME BECAUSE I AM

A CHRISTIAN.

ALSO, THEY WANT ME TO DENY

MY FAITH IN ORDER TO BE

SAFE.

Ephraim: WHY ARE THEY

TARGETING CHRISTIANS?

BECAUSE THEY WANT TO

ISLAMITIZE NIGERIA.

THAT'S WHY THEY ARE

TARGETING CHRISTIANS.

IF YOU HAVE AGREED TO DENY

YOU FAITH, YOU'LL BE SAFE.

IF YOU NOT AGREE TO DO IT,

THEY WILL KILL YOU.

AND SHOUT ALLAH AKBAR.

THAT MEANS ALLAH IS GREAT.

Ephraim: UNBELIEVABLE.

YOU CHOSE TO STAND YOUR

GROUND.

WHY DID YOU STAND YOUR

GROUND AND REFUSE TO

DENOUNCE CHRIST?

WHAT CAN SEPARATE US FROM

THE LOVE OF CHRIST?

IS IT HARDSHIP?

IS IT PROSECUTION?

IS IT SWORD?

NO.

NOTHING CAN SEPARATE US FROM

THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

IT MAKES ME TO STAND BY

THAT.

NOTHING CAN SEPARATE ME FROM

THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

Ephraim: INDEED.

YOU SEE, CHRIST DID

SOMETHING FOR ME AND OTHER

PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.

WE ARE SINNERS, WE ARE

CONDEMNED CRIMINALS.

WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DIE, BUT

HE KEPT ALL THIS BURDEN.

HE PRAYED FOR US.

HE DIED FOR US.

WHY CAN I NOT SUBMIT TO

JESUS.

THAT'S WHY I STAND FOR HIM.

Ephraim: THAT'S

BEAUTIFUL.

AND AMAZINGLY, HE SAYS THAT

TORTURE IS ACTUALLY UNITING

THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY.

YOU CAN HEAR AND SEE HIS

PASSION FOR CHRIST.

HE HAS MUCH MORE TO SAY.

YOU CAN SEE THE FULL

INTERVIEW AT CWNEWS.ORG.

UP NEXT, EUTHANASIA FOR

CHILDREN.

A LOOK AT WHY SOME ARE

CALLING BELGIUM A CULTURE OF

DEATH.

Ephraim: A NEW

DEVELOPMENT ON THE SPIRITUAL

LANDSCAPE OF AMERICA HAS

DOZENS OF ATHEIST CHURCHES

ARE SPRINGING UP ACROSS THE

U.S.

THE GATHERINGS HAVE BEEN

SUCCESSFUL IN GREAT BRITAIN,

AND NOW THEY'RE DRAWING

LIKE-MINDED, NON-BELIEVES IN

CITIES LIKE SAN DIEGO,

NASHVILLE, AND NEW YORK.

THE CHURCHES LOOK LIKE

TYPICAL SUNDAY MORNING

CHURCH SERVICES, COMPLETE

WITH MUSIC, HAND CLAPPING

AND INSPIRATION.

THE MISSING ELEMENT: GOD.

ON SUNDAY, HUNDREDS OF

ATHEISTS PACKED THIS

AUDITORIUM IN LOS ANGELES

FOR THE LAUNCH OF THE LATEST

GODLESS CHURCH.

PIPPA EVANS FOUNDED THE

MOVEMENT AND PLAN TO

KICK-START MORE ANTIGOD

ASSEMBLIES IN THE U.S.

WHEN WE THINK ABOUT

RELIGION IN AMERICA, WE TALK

ABOUT THE BELIEF IN GOD AND

JESUSMENT BUT FOR A LOT OF

PEOPLE, IT IS THE COMMUNITY,

THE SUNDAY SCHOOL.

THE SAME PEOPLE AFTERWARDS

IN THE FOYER OR THE

COURTYARD AND HAVING

COFFEE.

THEY WANT THAT KIND OF MORAL

COMMUNITY THAT IS ABOUT

CONNECTING WITH OTHERS.

AND IT IS ABOUT CELEBRATING

LIFE.

CELEBRATING MORALS AND

ETHICS WITHIN A NON-SUPER

NATURAL CONTEXT.

Ephraim: BELGIUM HAS

BEEN CALLED A CULTURE OF

DEATH BECAUSE OF LAX LAWS ON

ABORTIONS AND EUTHANASIA.

NOW A MOVEMENT IS GAINING

DWROWN GROUND THAT WOULD

ALLOW SICK CHILDREN TO

CHOOSE DEATH.

Reporter: THIS IS

BELGIUM, WHERE EUTHANASIA

WAS LEGALIZED OVER 10 YEARS

AGO, AND TODAY PEOPLE ARE

EUTHANIZED FOR BLINDNESS OR

FOR A BOTCHED SEX CHANGE

OPERATION.

AND NOW BELGIUM WANTS TO

EXTEND YOUTH A NEIGHBOUR

EUTHANASIA TO CHILDREN.

TERMINALLY ILL CHILDREN

COULD BE PUT TO DEATH IF

THEIR PARENTS AGREE AND THE

CHILD UNDERSTANDS THEIR

DECISION.

THE BILL IS WIDELY SUPPORTED

AND EXPECTED TO BECOME LAW.

THE SUPPORTERS SAY IT IS

NECESSARY AND

COMPASSIONATE.

CRITICS SAY IT IS ONLY THE

NEXT PHASE IN WHAT THEY CALL

A CULTURE OF DEATH.

EUTHANASIA IS NOW LISTED AS

A MEDICAL THERAPY IN

BELGIUM.

NOT ONLY DO TWO-THIRDS FAVOR

THE BILL, AND THREE-QUARTERS

SAID IT WOULD BE OKAY FOR

PARENTS TO YOUT EUTHANIZE

THEIR SICK CHILDREN WITHOUT

THE CHILD'S CONSENT.

THIS PERSON IS WITH THE

EUROPEAN CENTER FOR

BIOETHICS IN BRUSSELS.

THE CHILD DOESN'T HAVE

THE MATURITY TO GET MARRIED

OR TO BUY ALCOHOL OR TO BUY

CIGARETTES, AND NOW WE'RE

TRYING TO SAY THEY MIGHT

HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO ASK

FOR DEATH?

Reporter: MICHELLE, A

LAW STUDENT, IS THE FOUNDER

OF THE MARCH FOR LIFE IN

BRUSSELS.

YOU SAID SOMETHING

INTERESTING, THAT CHILDREN

NEVER CHOOSE TO DIE.

NO.

I DON'T BELIEVE THIS.

I DON'T BELIEVE A CHILD

UNDER 18, WHO IS SICK AND

WHO IS ILL, WANTS TO DIE.

Reporter DIE.

WHO WILL GIVE THE

SUGGESTION TO THE CHILD THAT

ONE OF THE SOLUTIONS IS

EUTHANASIA?

A CHILD DOESN'T KNOW WHY

EUTHANASIA IS?

A CHILD DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

DEATH IS.

Reporter: EXPERTS SAY

SICK CHILDREN ALMOST NEVER

WANT TO DIE.

SO WHY IS SUCH A LAW EVEN

NECESSARY.

FOR ME IS A SYMBOLIC

LAW.

IT IS A REVENGE OF THE

SOCIAL LIBERAL PARTIES OF

THIS KIND OF PEOPLE WHO WANT

TO SHOW CHRISTIANITY IN

BELGIUM IS FINISHED.

Reporter: AND WHAT THE

LAW WILL ALMOST ASSUREDLY DO

IS MAKE THE PRACTICE OF

KILLING SUFFERING CHILDREN

MORE COMMON.

SOME BELGIUM DOCTORS ARE

KILLING NEWBORNS WITH

SPINABIFIDA IF THE PARENTS

REQUEST IT.

THE ANSWER IS CARING.

Reporter: SHE SAYS WHAT

DOCTORS SHOULD BE DOING IS

OFFERING WORLD CLASS

PALLIATIVE CARE THAT

ALLEVIATES SUFFERING.

BUT THE MEDIA AND THE LEFT

IN BELGIUM ARE SENDING THE

MESSAGE THAT DOCTORS WHO

RESIST EUTHANASIA ARE

UNCARING.

IF YOU REFUSE EUTHANASIA,

YOU ARE THE BAD DOCTOR.

IT IS NOT TOLERANCE.

IT IS REALLY

DISCRIMINATION.

AND IT'S THE WORLD UP SIDE

DOWN.

UNDER THIS WHOLE WORD AND

TERMINOLOGY, SAYING IT IS

COMPLETELY CONTROLLED BY

DOCTORS, WE GIVE DOCTORS THE

RIGHT TO KILL.

DOCTORS SHOULD HEAL, NOT

KILL.

Reporter: A VOTE ON THE

MEASURE IS EXPECTED SOON.

DALE HURD, CBN, BRUSSELS.

THE LAST TIME HONDURAN

VOTERS WENT TO THE POLLS,

THE CENTRAL AMERICAN COUNTRY

WAS IN A POLITICAL CRISIS.

FOUR YEARS LATER, SOME

VISIONARY PASTORS ARE DOING

THEIR BEST TO PROMOTE A

PEACEFUL TRANSITION OF

POWER, WITH THE HELP OF A

CHORUS OF YOUNG VOICES.

Reporter: THE STREETS

OF TALGUBAGASTA ARE ALIVE AS

THEY PREPARE TO LEC TO

ELECT THEIR NED PRESIDENT.

NEXT PRESIDENT.

HE CHALLENGES THEM TO GOVERN

WITH ETHICS AND INTEGRITY.

IN EVERY PARTY, THERE ARE

PROPOSALS THAT DON'T REFLECT

WHAT WE BELIEVE, THAT DON'T

DEFEND WHAT WE DEFEND, THAT

IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER ARE

CONTRARY TO GOD AND HIS

PEOPLE.

SO AS CHRISTIANS, WE CAN'T

VOTE AGAINST OURSELVES.

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, A

STADIUM FULL OF CHILDREN

ERUPTS IN PRAYER FOR THE

NATIONS.

THESE YOUNG INTERCESSORS

PRAY FOR THE ELECTIONS, OR

AN END TO THE EPIDEMIC OF

VIOLENCE, AND FOR SPIRITUAL

REVIVAL.

PASTOR ROY SANTOS HAS BEEN

TRAINING CHILDREN TO PRAY

AND HOLDING RALLIES LIKE

THIS FOR THE PAST 14 YEARS.

HE IS CONVINCED PRAYERS OF

CHILDREN CAN CHANGE THE

SPIRITUAL CLIMATE IN

HONDURAS.

THE BIBLE TELLS ME THAT

THE KINGDOM OF GOD BELONGS

TO THEM.

HE SHOULDN'T LOOK SIMPLY AT

A CHILD WHO IS EMOTIONALLY

IMMATURE, BUT AT THE SPIRIT

OF THE CHILD.

THE SPIRIT IS ALWAYS

MATURE.

Reporter: BACK IN THE

CAPITAL, THE PASTOR'S

INITIATIVE IS REACHING

MEMBERS OF THE ELECTORAL

COMMISSION.

HE GAVE US ADVICE IN

2009, WHEN WE WERE IN A HUGE

CRISIS.

WE ASKED HIM FOR ARMOR,

ASKED HIM FOR PRAYER, AND HE

SAID THE BEST ARMOR WE COULD

HAVE WAS TO FULFILL THE

LAW.

THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT

THE MILITARY EXPELLED MANUEL

SAELLA.

THIS YEAR HIS WIFE IS ONE OF

THE CANDIDATES AT THE CHURCH

EVENT.

I BELIEVE THAT MY

PRESENCE HERE, ESPECIALLY IN

THIS CHURCH, IS TO MAKE A

CULE FOCALL FOR THE

RECONCILIATION, COMMUNITY

AND PEACE THAT THE HONDURAN

PEOPLE NEED.

BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT TO

GOVERN YOU FIRST HAVE TO

HAVE GOD PRESENT.

AS GREAT AS YOUR TEAM MIGHT

BE, WITH GOOD MEN AND WOMEN,

AS GOOD AS YOUR PLANS MIGHT

BE, IF YOU DON'T PUT GOD

FIRST, THERE IS NO WAY TO

ACCOMPLISH ANY GOOD.

ONE PLUS ONE IS TWO.

BUT THERE IS AN ADDITION

FACTOR THAT MANY DON'T THINK

ABOUT, AND THAT IS GOD.

AND ONE PLUS GOD EQUALS

INFINITY.

THIS DRAWS A NATIONAL

AUDIENCE THROUGH LIVE

BROADCAST ON COMMERCIAL

TELEVISION.

THE CHRISTIAN CHANNEL TAKES

IT TO THE INTERNATIONAL

AUDIENCE.

I AM AN ENEMY OF

INDIFFERENCE AND

RESIGNATION.

THAT'S NOT CHRISTIANITY.

BECAUSE CHRISTIANS SHOULD BE

LEADERS AND BEING A

CHRISTIAN DOESN'T TAKE AWAY

OUR CITIZENSHIP.

WE HAVE DOUBLE CITIZENSHIP.

WE ARE CITIZENS OF THE

KINGDOM, AND CITIZENS OF

THIS COUNTRY.

Reporter: THE PASTOR

AND OTHER CHURCH LEADERS SAY

EVEN WITH THE BEST POLITICAL

PLATFORMS, IT IS STILL UP TO

THE CHURCH TO BUILD A NATION

WITH INTEGRITY AND HONOR.

STAN JETER, CBN NEWS.

Ephraim: MILLIONS OF

CHRISTIANS AROUND THE WORLD

ARE PRAYING FOR THE PEACE OF

JERUSALEM.

BUT THERE IS ALSO A PRAYER

MOVEMENT GROWING IN THE CITY

ITSELF.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL SHOWS US,

CHRISTIANS FROM INDIA

RECENTLY DEDICATED A PRAYER

CENTER IN THE HEART OF

JERUSALEM.

WE DEDICATE THIS FOR THE

GLORY OF GOD.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: SEVERAL YEARS

AGO, DR. PAUL DENAKAREN

DECIDED TO ESTABLISH THE

ISRAEL PRAYER TOWER IN

JERUSALEM.

MY HEART IS OVERWHELMED

WITH JOY.

AND I SAY THANK YOU, JESUS.

YOU ALLOW ME FOR THE WORK

YOU HAVE GIVEN ME FOR THE

NATIONS OF THE WORLD.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

MAIN GOALS IS SPECIFIC

PRAYER FOR THE NATIONS OF

THE WORLD.

TO PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE,

FOR THEM TO RECEIVE THE

GOSPEL, AND FOR THE NATIONS,

FOR THEM TO RECEIVE

SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEMS OF

HUMANITY IN EACH NATION.

Reporter: SOME SEE IT

AS A FULFILLMENT OF

PROPHECY.

THERE IS NO OTHER CITY ON

THE PLANET THAT GOD COMMANDS

THE NATION TO PRAY FOR ITS

PEACE, BUT TO PRAY FOR THE

CITY OF JERUSALEM.

PSALM 122.

WE'RE SEEING THAT COME TO

PASS.

NATIONS ARE COMING UP TO

JERUSALEM AND PRAYING FOR

JERUSALEM AS PROPHESIED IN

ZECHARIAH.

I BELIEVE WHEN GOD IS ABOUT

TO DO SOMETHING BIG, HE

PREPARES A GREAT ARMY OF

INTERCESSORS TO PARTNER WITH

HIM.

THAT GIVES ME A LOT OF

EXCITEMENT ABOUT WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

WE SEE PEOPLE FROM INDIA,

PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE

WORLD NOW, COMING UP TO

PRAY.

Reporter: THIS PRAYER

CENTER IS ONE OF SEVERAL IN

THE CITY.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Ephraim: THAT WILL DO

IT FOR THIS EDITION OF

CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US.

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, GOOD-BYE

AND GOD BLESS YOU.
