BOTH CITIES NEAR THE REGION

WHERE ISLAMIC TERRORIST HAVE

BEEN FIGHTING A BRUTAL BATTLE.

CHRISTIANS ARE HARSHLY

PERSECUTED.

WE SPOKE TO A PASTOR.

I AM CONVINCED IT IS THE LOVE

OF CHRIST THAT CAN TURN THIS

REGION AROUND.

CAITLIN: MEANWHILE THEY HAVE

DEPLOYED SECURITY PERSONNEL FOR

THE GAMES AND RUSSIAN PRESIDENT

PUTIN PROMISES THE SAFEST

OLYMPICS IN HISTORY, CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS.

REPORTER: MY PEOPLE STARTED

DISMISSING IT.

ALMOST DAILY RIOTS IN THE

STREETS OF EGYPT PROVED

BROTHERHOOD MEMBERS ARE NOT

READY TO GIVE UP AS ERICK

STAKELBECK HAS MORE.

REPORTER: DEADLY ATTACKED

AGAINST EGYPTIAN TROOPS AND

POLICE.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AND

ALLIES HAVE BEEN VERY BUSY SINCE

THE EGYPTIAN MILITARY FORCED

MORSI FROM OUST.

MOST OF THE LEADERS SIT IN

PRISON AWAITING TRIAL.

A LARGE NUMBER OF EGYPTIANS ARE

PLEASED WITH THE CHANGE.

MILLIONS TOOK TO THE STREETS

CALLING FOR MORSI'S OUSTING.

PEOPLE ON THE GROUND ARE SICK

OF THEM.

CBN CONTRIBUTOR MOHAMMED

IBRIHIM -- ACCUSE OF BEING

DISLOYAL.

REPORTER: THE BROTHER FACED

BACKLASH IN TU KNEE SA.

A RECENT LEADERSHIP CHANGE IN

TINY OIL RICH NATION OF CUTTER,

ONE OF THE BIGGEST FINANCERS FAF

MAY HAVE EFFECTED THE EFFORTS.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD REMAINS

ACTIVE IN SOME 70 COUNTRIES

WORLDWIDE.

WE HAVE TO REMEMBER MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IS A SUBSTANTIAL IN

THE SUNNI WORLD.

REPORTER: A FORMER

INTELLIGENCE OFFICIAL SAYS AS

THE BROTHERHOOD STRUGGLES, EVEN

MORE RADICAL FORCES LIKE

AL-QAEDA ARE SEEKING TO TAKE

ADVANTAGE IN PLACES LIKE SYRIA.

PRACTICAL, SYRIAN ELEMENTS --

ON ONE HAND AND RADICAL SEES A

BASE IN THE WORLD.

REPORTER: IT BECAME CLEAR IN

KENYA WHERE AL-SHABAB KILLED 60

SOME ODD PEOPLE IN SHOP K MALL.

ITS PROXY, HEZBOLLAH HAS STOCK

WILED TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

MISSILES.

THEN THERE IS THE TURKISH

GOVERNMENT.

AS FOR THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD, CBN NEWS REPORTED

BROTHERHOOD FOLLOWERS HOLD

INFLUENTIAL POSITIONS AND

BROTHERHOOD CONTINUE TO LEAD

PROTESTS AGAINST THE EGYPTIAN

GOVERNMENT.

USUALLY BEFORE A DEATH BLOW

THINGS GET CHAOTIC AND VIOLENT.

IF ANYTHING YOU CAN EXPECT TO

SEE MORE OF AN OUT LASH FROM THE

BROTHERHOOD.

REPORTER: HERE AT HOME TWO

STORM SYSTEMS CAUSING DANGEROUS

WEATHER SYSTEMS.

NORTH DAKOTA BANNED TRAVEL IN

PARTS OF THE STATE.

IN NEW ENGLAND, CREWS HAVE BEEN

WORKING TO RESTORE POWERS THAT

HAVE BEEN WITHOUT ELECTRICITY

FOR A WEEK.

PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN LIKENED

AMERICA TO A SHINING CITY ON A

HILL.

SINCE THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

TOOK OFFICE, TALKING ABOUT

AMERICAN GREATNESS AND

EXCEPTIONALISM HAS BEEN FROWNED

UPON.

MARK MARTIN TALKED ABOUT WITH A

MAN THAT IS TRYING TO BRING BACK

THAT OPTIMISM.

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A NATION

LIKE AMERICA.

MY MESSAGE IS

RESONATING.

REPORTER: NICK ADAM'S MESSAGE

IS CLEAR, AMERICA IS

EXCEPTIONAL.

WHAT MAKES AN AUSTRALIAN WRITE

BOOKS ON AMERICAN

EXCEPTIONALISM?

IT IS A

GREAT QUESTION.

I FIND AMERICA A COMPELLING

PLACE FINDING ITS PEOPLE

EXCEPTIONAL.

IT IS OPTIMISM, NOT PESSIMISM.

REPORTER: IT WAS A HOT TOPIC

OF DEBATE WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA

DOWN PLAYED THE PHRASE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I BELIEVE IN

AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM JUST AS

THE BRITTS AND GREEKS AGREE IN

EXCEPTIONALISM.

I THINK THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION AND COURSE THEY

ARE TAKING AMERICA ARE WELL

FOUNDED.

THERE IS LITTLE DOUBT, I THINK

TO ANY OBJECTIVE ANALYST THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS SEEKING TO

EUROPEANIZE AMERICA FOR WANT OF

A BETTER TERM.

HE IS SEEKING A WESTERN EUROPEAN

SOCIALIST STATE.

HE SIGHS AMERICA AS JUST ANOTHER

COUNTRY AND WANTS TO TAKE IT

DOWN A PEG.

I THINK THOSE THINGS ARE NOT

HEALTHY FOR AMERICA.

IF YOU HAD ONE PIECE OF

ADVICE FOR AMERICANS, WHAT WOULD

IT BE?

TO REMAIN THE MOST

PATRIOTIC,

OPTIMISTIC, LIBERTARIAN,

CONFIDENT RELIGIOUS NATION IN

THE WORLD.

TO EXERCISE FIDELITY AND

CONSTITUTION TO THE DECLARATION

OF INDEPENDENCE TO THE VISIONS

OF YOUR FOUNDING FATHERS.

EVERYONE HAS HEARD OF THE

AMERICAN DREAM.

THAT IS THE ONE DREAM WE NEED TO

FOSTER AND ENCOURAGE AND

PROTECTION WITH EVERY OUNCE AND

FIBER OF OUR BODY UNTIL OUR LAST

BREATH HAS LEFT US.

I AM RESIDENTIALLY

DISADVANTAGED.

SPIRITUAL

SIGNIFICANCE.

FROM A SITE OF A FAMOUS CHURCH

BUILT BY ALFRED GAR IN THE 19

30S.

EVEN DURING THE DEPRESSION,

HE BROUGHT THE OLD COLISEUM OF

CHARLOTTE TO BUILD THIS.

IT WAS THIS THICK.

HE PAID THEM A SANDWICH A DAY

JUST FOR THE WORKING.

ISN'T THAT AMAZING?

HE BELIEVED IN THAT CHURCH AND

THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS COMING IN

POWER.

REPORTER: GAR'S

MIRACLE

MEETINGS MADE HEAD

THE BUILDING WAS THERE, WE

FELT THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD

STILL ON THE PLACE THAT IS WHAT

WE SHOW UP AND GOD DOES THE

REST.

I DON'T DO THE MIRACLES.

HE DOES.

HE SAVES AND HEALS PEOPLE.

REPORTER: HOT DOG IS ONE OF

THOSE MIRACLES.

THOUGH BLIND IN ONE EYE, HE CAN

CREATE WORKS OF ART LIKE THIS

WITH A PENCIL, Q-TIP AND E RAIRASEERASER.

I GIVE WHAT GOD GIVE ME.

HE HAS SUCH TALENT.

HE IS AMAZING.

THERE HE IS ON THE STREETS.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

TERRY: THE TV ANCHOR THAT

VANISHED AFTER YEARS ON THE AIR.

I COULDN'T DO IT ANYMORE.

TERRY: FIND OUT WHY HE LEFT,

AND WHAT HE IS DOING NOW AFTER

THIS.

GORDAN: TV NEWS ANCHOR LES

SMITH WAS A FAMILIAR FACE TO

FANS LIKE ME FOR 22 YEARS.

THEN SUDDENLY, HE DISAPPEARED

FROM AIR.

LES BROKE HIS CONTRACT, WALKED

OUT ON HIS CAREER, THAT WAS SIX

YEARS AGO.

TODAY LES TALKS ABOUT WHY HE

LEFT, WHERE HE WENT AND WHAT HAS

HAPPENED SINCE.

THAT WAS THE ONE PART OF MY

LIFE THAT I ALWAYS PRESERVED.

I THOUGHT THAT IS THE ME I WANT

THE WORLD TO SEE.

I COULD BE A MESS AT HOME ALONE.

WHEN I AM IN FRONT OF PEOPLE I

AM GOING TO BE AS PROFESSIONAL.

I COULD GO HOURS AND HOURS ON

LIFE TELEVISION AND GO HOME AND

COLLAPSE.

REPORTER: TV ANCHOR LES SMITH

WAS DETERMINED TO NOT LET PEOPLE

KNOW HE LIVED A PRIVATE

NIGHTMARE.

HE WOULD GO HOME AND LET BOOZE

BEAR THE WEIGHT OF THE PAIN.

WHEN I WAS A TEENAGER, I

WOULD LISTEN TO SAD SONGS BY

MYSELF.

THAT WAS THE REALLY THE

BEGINNING OF A LIFE-LONG BATTLE

WITH DEPRESSION.

REPORTER: IN COLLEGE, LES

BECAME AN ALCOHOLIC.

I DID IT JUST TO MASK THE

ANXIETY I HAD AND THE LONELINESS

I HAD.

THE DEPRESSION.

REPORTER: AFTER COLLEGE, LES

BEGAN REPORTING FOR WAVY TV IN

HAMPTON ROADS, VIRGINIA.

HIS PRIVATE LIFE WAS A MESS.

I WOULD START A RELATIONSHIP

WITH A WOMAN AND LAST A WEIRD OF

TIME, THEY TRIED TO GET TOO

CLOSE TO ME.

I WOULD USE ALCOHOL AND

ISOLATION TO PUSH THEM AWAY.

IF SOMEONE TRIED TO GET TOO

CLOSE, I WOULD END THE

RELATIONSHIP.

I WENT THROUGH A LONG PATTERN OF

PUSHING PEOPLE AWAY.

WHEN THE PAIN OF DEPRESSION

BECAME TOO MUCH FOR LES HE WOULD

CALL IN SICK.

HE THOUGHT HE COULD HANDLE IT

HIMSELF.

WHEN I CONTINUE TO BE

SUCCESSFUL AT WORK.

I CAN GO AND DO MY JOB, NOBODY

NEEDS TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT I DO

WHEN I GO HOME.

REPORTER: LES HID HIS

DEPRESSION FROM WAVY TV FOR 22

YEARS.

ONE DAY HE WAS DONE.

I WAS JUST DONE I COULDN'T BE

THE PROFESSIONAL LES.

I HAD TO STAY

ON

THE

COUCH

AND

BE

REAL

UNHAPPY LES.

REPORTER: HE BROKE

HIS

CONTRACT AND THEN A YEAR LATER

HE WORKED AT ANOTHER STATION.

HE LEFT THERE TO AND WENT TO

ATLANTIC CITY AND GOT A JOB AND

DRANK EVEN MORE.

I WAS SO DEPRESSED, I

COULDN'T EAT, I COULDN'T KEEP

FOOD DOWN.

I DIDN'T WANT TO GO ON ANYMORE.

MY DAD HAD TO COME UP FROM TEXAS

TO HELP ME.

HE GOT THERE AND RIGHT AWAY

CALLED AN AMBULANCE.

THEY TOOK ME TO THE HOSPITAL.

THEY HAD TO DETOX ME AND GAVE ME

MEDICINE SO I WOULDN'T GO INTO A

SEIZURE.

I ASKED GOD TO LET ME DIE.

LES USUALLY DIDN'T TALK TO

GOD.

THE IDEA OF GOD TALKING BACK, HE

DIDN'T EVEN CONSIDER THAT UNTIL

-- I'LL NEVER FORGET, MIDDLE

OF THE NIGHT, 3:00 A.M., DIMLY

LIT HOSPITAL ROOM AND ASKING GOD

TO LET ME DIE.

I AM HEARING A VOICE THAT SAYS

NO, I WANT YOU TO LIVE.

THAT WAS THE MOMENT I REALLY

REALIZED, OF COURSE, I HAVE TO

MAKE A CHOICE, DO I LIVE AND HOW

DO I LIVE?

REPORTER: IN THAT HOSPITAL

ROOM, LES LEARNED SOMETHING

ABOUT GOD.

I ALWAYS BELIEVED IN GOD.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT GOD WAS

SOMEBODY WHO WAS IN ME AND A

PART OF ME ALL THE TIME.

I THOUGHT GOD WAS SOMEBODY YOU

WENT TO CHURCH AND WORSHIPPED

SUNDAY AND THAT WAS THE END OF

THE RELATIONSHIP AND AT THE END

OF THE WEEK YOU WENT TO CHURCH.

THAT IS THE PART MY BROKENNESS

LED ME TO.

REPORTER: LES REALIZED THE

PAIN HE WAS TRYING TO NUMB WAS A

HOLE HE WAS TRYING TO FILL.

IT WASN'T UNTIL AFTER I CAME

TO CHRIST THAT IS A GOD-SHARED

HOLE.

THE ONLY THING THAT FILLED THAT

HOLE IS A RELATIONSHIP WITH

JESUS CHRIST.

REPORTER: AFTER BEING

RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL, LES

CHECKED INTO YOUTH CHALLENGE AT

NEW PORT NEWS, VIRGINIA.

AT THAT POINT, EVERYDAY WE

GOT A CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AND

DEEPENED MY UNDERSTANDING OF MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.

IT WAS ONLY THROUGH THAT

EXPERIENCE, DOING IT EVERYDAY

AND LETTING HIM COME IN AN DO

THE WORK THAT NEEDED TO BE DONE

IN ME THAT I FINALLY CHANGED, I

TURNED THAT CORNER AS A PERSON.

RECENTLY, LES GUESS ANCHORED

AT WTKR-TV IN NORFOLK, VIRGINIA.

HE IS ALSO A REAL ESTATE AGENT.

PEOPLE RECOGNIZE HIM WHEREVER HE

GOES AND WANT TO TELL HIM.

PEOPLE HAVE BEGAN TO SHARE

WITH ME.

I AM NOT THE ONLY PERSON THAT

SAT ON THE COACH WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB" WITH A BOTTLE OF VODKA

PRAYING WITH PAT.

THERE ARE A BUNCH OF US OUT

THERE [LAUGHTER].

IT TOOK A LONG TIME TO GET TO

THAT PLACE.

I HAD GONE THE WRONG DIRECTION

FOR A LONG, LONG TIME.

I AM NOT WHERE I NEED TO BE BUT

SURE NOT WHERE USED TO BE.

A HOPE AND FUTURE, THAT IS ALL

THAT WORKS FOR ME.

GORDAN: IT WILL WORK FOR YOU,

TOO.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TURN

AROUND, I WANT TO TAKE THE FIRST

STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

MAYBE YOU HAVE TRIED OR PRAYED

WITH US ON THE SHOW.

LISTEN TO WHAT LES, DAILY

RENEWAL.

CHRISTIANITY ISN'T SOMETHING YOU

DO ON SUNDAY MORNING.

IT IS AN ONGOING RELATIONSHIP,

WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR HEART, HE

COMES IN.

HE DOESN'T JUST SAY I'LL COME

AND GO, HE COMES IN TO ST STAY AND

BE WITH YOU EVERYDAY.

FOR LES, THE KEY WAS

UNDERSTANDING, THAT IS A

RELATIONSHIP YOU CAN GROW, YOU

CAN DEVELOP EVERYDAY.

WHEN YOU DO IT EVERYDAY, THAT IS

WHEN YOU SEE THE BREAK THROUGH,

THAT IS WHEN YOU COME TO A PLACE

CALLED HOPE.

THAT IS WHEN YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A

FUTURE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE A LIFE OF

DESPAIR, YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE

IN DEPRESSION.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DRINK YOURSELF

TO DEATH.

YOU CAN HAVE RIGHTEOUSNESS,

PEACE, AND JOY IN THE HOLY

SPIRIT IF YOU JUST LET GOD IN.

IF YOU LET GOD INTO YOUR

DEPRESSION.

IF YOU LET HIM INTO YOUR LIFE,

YOUR ADDICTION.

IF YOU LET HIM BE LORD OF

EVERYTHING, NOT JUST OF SUNDAY

MORNING, NOT JUST ON THE

ONE-TIME PRAYER BUT ON A DAILY,

EVERYDAY BASIS.

THAT IS THE KEY, THAT IS WHAT

HAPPENED TO LES.

THAT IS WHAT TURNED HIS LIFE

AROUND FROM DESPAIR TO HOPE.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU

JUST MAKE THE DECISION TO

SURRENDER.

SAY GOD, I WANT YOU.

I DON'T WANT YOU ON A ONE-TIME

BASIS TO FIX ME UP AND SEND ME

ON MY WAY AGAIN, I WANT YOU

EVERYDAY TO BE WITH ME.

I COULD FEEL YOU AND UNDERSTAND

THAT YOUR PRESENCE IS HERE IN

THE NOW NOT SOME FAR OFF PLACE,

BUT YOU ARE IN ME AND ALL AROUND

ME.

IF YOU WANT THAT, ALL YOU HAVE

TO DO IS ASK FOR IT.

SAY JESUS, I CAN'T DO THIS.

I KNOW THAT IN MY WEAKNESS, YOUR

STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT.

YOU CAN DO IT AND DO IT FOR ME.

I SURRENDER TO YOU, I ASK YOU

IN.

IF THIS IS FOR YOU, THIS IS WHAT

YOU WANT, DON'T TURN AWAY.

DON'T CHANGE THE CHANNEL.

DON'T THINK YOU HAVE A TOMORROW

WHERE YOU CAN DO THIS LATER.

RIGHT NOW, BOW YOUR HEAD, LET'S

PRAY AND LET'S LET JESUS DO WHAT

HE DID FOR LES, HE'LL DO IT FOR

YOU IF YOU JUST ASK HIM.

LET'S PRAY.

JESUS, THAT'S RIGHT, SAY IT OUT

LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU AND LORD,

YOU KNOW I CAN'T DO THIS.

I CAN'T OVERCOME THESE

OBSTACLES.

I CAN'T OVERCOME MY DESPAIR.

I CAN'T OVERCOME MY PROBLEMS.

BUT JESUS, I KNOW THAT YOU CAN.

SO I OPEN MY HEART TO YOU, I ASK

THAT YOU COME IN, THAT YOU MAKE

ME NEW AGAIN, THAT YOU TRANSFORM

ME FROM MY INNERMOST BEING, THAT

YOU RENEW ME, NOT JUST ONCE, BUT

EVERYDAY, BE PART OF MY LIFE.

AND JESUS, IF YOU'LL DO THIS, IF

YOU'LL FORGIVE ME, CLEANSE ME,

MAKE ME NEW, I WANT TO BE WITH

YOU EVERY SINGLE DAY, HEAR MY

PRAYER, FOR I PRAY IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE THAT JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A BAPTISM IN

YOUR LOVE, I ASK THAT YOU FILL

THEM TO OVERFLOWING, THEIR

PRAYER HAS BEEN HEARD AND

ANSWERED TODAY.

LORD, I ESPECIALLY ASK THIS HOPE

BE RENEWED IN THEIR HEART.

THEY WOULD KNOW THIS IS A NEW

DAY AND A NEW BEGINNING AND A

NEW LIFE IN YOU.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT ALL,

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, THE BIBLE

SAYS THERE IS ANOTHER STEP YOU

NEED TO TAKE.

YOU NEED TO LET SOMEBODY ELSE

KNOW.

BIBLE SAYS VERY CLEARLY, IF YOU

CONFESS WITH YOUR HEART, IF YOU

BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART AND

CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH, YOU

SHALL BE SAVED.

WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS DO

THAT.

SAY I'LL TELL SOMEBODY ELSE, I

JUST ASKED JESUS TO COME INTO MY

HEART.

INSTEAD THEY COLLIDED.

I WAS AWAKENED BY THE PHONE

AM LOOKING FOR SOMEONE RELATED

TO EDGAR WARD, HE WAS FROM THE

TRAUMA UNIT AT VANDERBILT.

THIS PERSON SAYS I HAVE YOUR

SON, I HAVE A 21 YEAR OLD HERE

IN THE TRAUMA UNIT.

NEW ED AND SON TYSON LOVED

FISHING.

THEY WENT WHEN THEY COULD AND

ENTERED TOURNAMENTS TOGETHER.

IN 2010, DURING A NIGHT FISHING

TRIP, EVERYTHING CHANGED.

THEY SEEMED TO BE PASSING

ANOTHER BOAT.

THAT BOAT ALMOST T-BONES THE

FRONT.

IT LOOKED Z A IF A BOMB HAD GONE

OFF, EVERY PART OF THE BOMB WAS

GONE.

SHE CALL ADD NEIGHBOR TO GO

TO THE HOSPITAL.

WHILE SHE WAITED SHE GOT ANOTHER

CALL.

SHE SAID I HAVE LOCATED YOUR

HUSBAND, ALSO IN CRITICAL

CONDITION.

HE IS AT BAPTIST HOSPITAL.

NEW KATHY DECIDED TO GO SEE HER

HUSBAND FIRST.

HIS PROGNOSIS WAS GRIM.

THE DOCTOR IN CHARGE OF THE

BRAIN INJURY TOLD ME ED'S FRONT

PART OF HIS BRAIN HAD BEEN

COMPLETELY DESTROYED.

IT LOOKED AS IF IT WAS PUT

THROUGH A MEAT GRINDER.

TF

IT WAS UNLIKELY HE WOULD WAKE

UP.

IT SEEM TO BE AN EXTREMELY

BRIGHT LIGHT SHINING ON HIS HEAD

AND FACE.

I ACTUALLY FELT A VERY WARM PUFF

OF AIR AS IF IT CAME THROUGH THE

TOP OF MY HEAD AND RUSHED

THROUGH ME.

MY LEGS STOPPED SHAKING ME AND

HAD AN ALL KNOWING THOUGHT THIS

WAS VERY SERIOUS BUT EVERYTHING

WAS GOING TO BE OKAY.

KATHY LEFT TO FIND HER SON

TYSON AT THE OTHER HOSPITAL.

AFTER A LONG THREE-HOUR WAIT,

SHE FINALLY GOT TO SEE HIM.

HE HAD MASSIVE BRAIN INJURY,

CUTS ALL OVER, NUMEROUS RIBS

BROKEN, REMOVE HIS SPLEEN AND

PUT A TUBE IN HIS LEFT SIDE.

ROMANS 8:26.

IN THE SAME WAY THE SPIRIT HELPS

US IN OUR WEAKNESS, WE DO NOT

KNOW WHAT WHEN HE OUGHT TO PRAY

FOR, THE SPIRIT HIMSELF INTER

INTERCEDES FOR US, I FELT AS IF

I WAS LIVING THAT SCRIPTURE.

AT THE FIRST HOSPITAL, ED'S

BODY STARTED SHUTTING DOWN.

KATHY AND HER DAUGHTER PRAYED

AND MIRACLES BEGAN TO HAPPEN.

WITHIN THAT FIRST WEEK ED

WOKE UP.

SHE WAS ABLE TO BE TAKEN OFF THE

BREATHING MACHINE.

THE BRAIN DOCTOR APOLOGIZED.

HE SAID THERE IS NO MEDICAL

REASON YOUR HUSBAND IS ABLE TO

FUNCTION AS HE IS.

WHAT YOU ARE WITNESSING IS

NOTHING SHORT OF A MIRACLE.

TYSON WAS STILL IN A COMA

FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE.

SEEMED TO BE CONSTANTLY A

FEVER, INFECTION OR NEEDING

SURGERY.

THEY WERE ALWAYS TELLING ME HE

PROBABLY WAS NOT GOING TO

SURVIVE.

FIRST TIME I WENT TO SEE

TYSON.

I WALKED IN.

HE WAS LAYING THERE.

I CALLED MY BROTHER IN.

I ASK HIM, I SAID, TELL ME WHAT

IS WRONG WITH HIM.

WE STARTED AT THE TOP OF HIS

HEAD AND WENT TO THE BOTTOM OF

HIS FEET.

IT WAS TOUGH.

I MADE A POINT TO DO MY

SCRIPTURE READING AND DEVOTIONS.

I FEEL THAT ALL OF THAT IS A BIG

PART OF WHAT KEPT ME GOING.

IT NEVER FAILED THAT SOMETHING I

WOULD READ WOULD BE JUST WHAT I

NEEDED FOR THAT DAY.

THEN -- ON THE 99TH DAY, HE

LOOKED AT ME AND SMILED.

HI MOM, WHAT AM I DOING HERE?

I RAN TO THE SIDE OF THE BED.

I WAS LAUGHING.

HE WAS SMILING THAT BIG

BEAUTIFUL SMILE.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.

I WAS OVERJOYED.

I KNOW THAT WAS GOD ANSWERING

ALL MY PRAYERS.

I HAD PEOPLE ALL OVER THE

WORLD WHO HAD HEARD ABOUT THE

ACCIDENT AND PRAYING FOR THE

ACCIDENT.

PRAYING FOR ME AND MY DAD.

MAIN HEAD BRAIN DOCTOR AND

THERAPIST IN TEARS.

THEY WERE TELLING ME OVER AND

OVER THEY WERE WITNESSING A

MIRACLE.

FOR DOCTORS TO SAY YOU ARE A

MIRACLE, IT PUTS ME AT A LOSS

FOR WORDS.

AMAZINGLY TYSON WENT FROM

MOTIONLESS TO WALKING, TALKING

AND TALKING CARE OF HIMSELF IN A

FEW SHORT MONTHS.

HIS DAD RECOVERED JUST AS

QUICKLY.

BOTH MEN KNOW WHERE THE CREDIT

GOES.

EVERYTHING IS ABOUT GOD'S

GLORY TO BE A FIRST-HAND

WITNESS.

I THANK HIM.

GOD MADE IT HAPPEN.

IT MAKES ME FEEL SPECIAL GOD

TOOK GOOD CARE OF US.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

NO MATTER HOW BAD THE WORLD

MIGHT SAY MY SITUATION WAS.

HE WAS WORKING THROUGH THAT.

IT HELPED ME SO MUCH TO

UNDERSTAND WHEN YOU ARE IN THE

WILL OF GOD, HE IS GOING TO

PROVIDE.

HE ALWAYS DID.

OUR FATES IS WHAT CONNECTS OUR

WEAKNESSES TO GOD'S POWER.

TERRY: HE IS THE GOD THAT

PROVIDES.

TODAY IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE

YOU ARE AT OR HOW GREAT YOUR

NEED MIGHT BE.

HE INVITES US TO DO THAT, EVERY

NEED, EVERY PHYSICAL NEED, EVERY

FINANCIAL NEED, GOD IS AVAILABLE

AND HE HEARS YOUR CRY.

SO TODAY, WE WANT TO JOIN WITH

YOU, PRAY FOR YOUR NEEDS AND WE

INVITE YOU TO PRAY FOR THOSE

THAT YOU KNOW THAT ARE IN NEED

AS WELL.

GORDAN, I HAVE A GREAT ANSWER TO

PRAYER TO ENCOURAGE ALL OF US.

THIS 21-YEAR-OLD RUDY.

HE LIVES IN SNOOP, TEXAS.

HE WAS INVOLVED IN A BAD

AUTOMOBILE CRASH.

HE DEVELOPED CHRONIC PAIN IN

NECK AND RIGHT SHOULDER.

HE TRIED DIFFERENT MEDICATIONS,

PHYSICAL THERAPY.

THIS PAST APRIL, HE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM.

GORDAN, HE HEARD YOU GIVE A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE.

SOMEONE WITH DAMAGE TO THE NERVE

ENDINGS.

NERVES BE RESTORED NOW IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

RUDY FELT A BREEZE ON HIS NECK.

HE IS PAIN FREE.

GORDAN: CRAZY.

I HAVE ONE FROM OHIO, NORA HIT

FROM A TREE BRANCH WHILE USING

RIDING LAWN MOWER.

SHE HAD ONGOING PAIN IN FEET AND

LEGS COMBINED WITH COLD.

EVEN WITH PRESCRIPTION PAIN

MEDICATION, DIFFICULTY STANDING,

WALKING OR SLEEPING AT NIGHT.

THIS PROBLEM CONTINUED FOR 25

YEARS.

LAST MONTH, TERRY, YOU HAD A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE, SOMEONE WITH

VASCULAR PROBLEMS BEING ABLE TO

STAND AND MOVE COMFORTABLY, GOD

IS HEALING YOU.

IMMEDIATELY, ALL THE PAIN LEFT.

SHE IS NOW PAIN FREE, OFF

MEDICATION, AND SHE IS PRAYING

GOD.

I LOVE WHAT THAT MOTHER SAID,

FAITH IS THE THING THAT CONNECTS

OUR WEAKNESS WITH GOD'S

STRENGTH.

START UNDERSTANDING JUST HOW

WEAK YOU ARE.

IT IS IN THAT MOMENT OF WEAKNESS

HIS STRENGTH IS BEING MADE

PERFECT.

WHAT IS THE RIGHT WAY TO PRAY?

WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO PRAY.

THAT IS THE APOSTLE PAUL

WRITING.

HE IS SAYING WE DON'T KNOW HOW

TO PRAY.

THE SPIRIT HELPS OUR WEAKNESS.

PUT ALL YOUR TRUST IN HIM.

DON'T PUT YOUR TRUST IN YOUR

PRAYER OR HAVE YOU DONE THE

RIGHT THING TODAY.

PUT ALL YOUR TRUST IN HIM.

PUT ALL YOUR TRUST IN THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

PUT ALL YOUR TRUST IN GOD, THE

FATHER AND LET THEIR STRENGTH

FLOOD INTO YOUR WEAKNESS TODAY.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO AGREE.

WE ARE GOING TO PRAY WITH YOU.

WE ARE GOING TO ASK GOD FOR

MIRACLES.

JUST SAY LORD, I AM WEAK, BUT

YOU ARE STRONG.

I ASK RIGHT NOW, THAT YOU DO IT.

COME AS A LITTLE CHILD.

NOT WITH ANY KIND OF FORM,

DADDY, I NEED YOU.

I NEED YOU NOW LET'S SEE WHAT

GOD WILL DO FOR YOU.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS TO THE

AUDIENCE RIGHT NOW.

WE ASK FOR YOUR STRENGTH TO BE

MADE PERFECT IN OUR WEAKNESS.

WE CONFESS BEFORE YOU WE DON'T

KNOW HOW TO PRAY.

IN OUR DESPERATION, HERE OUR

CRY.

STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND TO HEAL

AND RESTORE AND GIVE STRENGTH TO

THOSE WHO ARE WEEK.

HOLY SPIRIT, COME WE DON'T KNOW

HOW TO PRAY, YOU HELP OUR

WEAKNESS AND GIVE US THE

ABILITY, YOU GIVE US THE WORDS,

YOU GIVE US EVEN THE INCLINATION

TO PRAY.

SO HEAR US NOW, SO WE ASK FOR

THE NEEDS OF THE AUDIENCE NOW.

WE ASK FOR HEALING.

WE ASK FOR FINANCES, WE ASK FOR

RESTORATION OF FAMILIES AND

MARRIAGES.

WE ASK THAT EVERY HUMAN NEED BE

SUPPLIED NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

SOMEONE YOU RUPTURED TENDONS IN

THE RIGHT SHOULDER.

DON'T HAVE FULL RANGE OF MOTION,

DOCTORS SAY IT IS IMPOSSIBLE.

GOD IS SAYING I AM THE GOD OF

THE POSSIBLE.

IN JESUS' NAME, THAT ARM NOW AND

RECEIVE HEALING.

ENDINGS IN JESUS' NAME.
