Gordon: A NEW MOM'S

HEART STOPPED EIGHT DAYS

AFTER GIVING BIRTH.

AND I CALLED OUT TO GOD,

WHAT WILL I DO WITHOUT MY

WIFE?

WHAT WILL MY DAUGHTER, EIGHT

DAYS OLD, DO WITHOUT HER

MOTHER?

Gordon: HEAR WHAT

BROUGHT HER BACK TO LIFE ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

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.

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO THIS SHOW.

THE BIRTH OF A BABY IS ONE

OF LIFE'S MEMORABLE

EXPERIENCES, ESPECIALLY FOR

JONATHAN AND MEREDITH

PARKER.

AND LIKE ALL NEW PARENTS,

THEY WERE NERVOUS ABOUT

CARING FOR THEIR BABY GIRL.

SHORTLY AFTER THEY CAME

HOME, THOUGH, IT WASN'T

LITTLE OLIVIA WHO WAS IN

DISTRESS.

IT WAS HER MOM.

IN THE SUMMER OF 2008,

JONATHAN AND MEREDITH PARKER

HAD A BIG REASON TO

CELEBRATE.

OLIVIA WAS BORN ON

JUNE 24th, 2008.

BUT ON JULY 2nd, JUST

EIGHT DAYS AFTER OLIVIA'S

BIRTH, TRAGEDY HIT THE

PARKER'S HOME.

THE EVENING WAS LIKE

NORMAL.

WE PUT THE BABY TO BED, AND

IT WAS ABOUT 11:30 THAT

EVENING.

AND WE WENT AND LAID DOWN.

AND WITHIN JUST A MATTER OF

A FEW MINUTES, THE BABY

STARTED CRYING.

SO WE GOT UP TO GO CHECK ON

THE BABY.

AND WHEN WE DID, MEREDITH

CAME BEHIND ME AND SAID THAT

HER PULSE WAS RACING.

SHE IMMEDIATELY TENSED UP.

I THOUGHT SHE WAS HAVING A

SEIZURE.

HER EYES ROLLED BACK.

SHE FELL BACK ON THE BED AND

BEGAN GASPING FOR AIR.

FOR JUST A FEW SHORT

MOMENTS, AND THEN SHE

STOPPED BREATHING ALL

TOGETHER AND BEGAN TURNING

PURPLE.

Reporter: JONATHAN, A

TRAINED POLICE OFFICER,

IMMEDIATELY BEGAN C.P.R. AND

CALLED 9-1-1.

9-1-1, WHAT'S YOUR

EMERGENCY.

PIE WIF MY WIFE HAD A

SEIZURE, AND SHE JUST HAD A

BABY.

OKAY, SHE STOPPED

BREATHING.

Reporter: EIGHT MINUTES

LATER, THE PARAMEDICS

ARRIVED.

WHEN WE ARRIVED AT THE

PARKER HOME, WE FOUND

MEREDITH ON THE FLOOR IN HER

BEDROOM.

SHE HAD NO PULSE.

SHE HAD NO RESPIRATION.

WE PLACED AN ADVANCED

AIRWAY, AND STARTED I.V.s,

AND WE HAD GIVEN HER

MEDICATIONS.

WE DEFI DEFIBRILLATED HER

HEART THRE THREE TO FOUR

TIMES WITHOUT SUCCESS.

THE FIRST DEFIBRILLATION WAS

OVER SIX TO EIGHT MINUTES,

SHE WAS IN A LESS THAN THEN

10% CHANCE HER HEART WOULD

EVEN START.

ONE OF THE THOUGHTS I

THOUGHT WHILE I LOOKED DOWN

AT HER, YOU CAN SIT THERE

AND DO NOTHING AND WATCH HER

DIE, OR YOU CAN DO SOMETHING

RIGHT NOW.

SO I WENT, AND AS THE

PARAMEDICS ARE WORKING,

DEFIBRILLATING AND SHOCKING

HER, I ANOINTED HER WITH OIL

AND I PRAYED.

THEN I FELT THE LORD LEADING

ME TO GO GET THE BIBLE.

AND SO I WENT AND GOT MY

BIBLE.

AND I LAID MY BIBLE AT HER

FEET.

AND I PRAYED, LORD, YOUR

WORD IS LIFE.

I NEED A MIRACLE.

BUT I JUST BELIEVED THAT THE

GOD OF THE BIBLE, AND THE

GOD WHO SHED HIS BLOOD ON

THE CROSS FOR ME WAS GOING

TO BRING LIFE INTO THIS

SITUATION.

AS SOON AS THERE WAS

CONTACT BETWEEN THE BIBLE

AND HER FEET, SHE HAD A

SPONTANEOUS RETURN OF A

PULSE AND RESPIRATIONS.

THIS WAS NOT DUE TO ANY

MEDICAL TREATMENT BECAUSE WE

WERE DOING -- ONLY DOING

C.P.R. AT THAT POINT, AND

THOSE THAT WERE THERE THAT

NIGHT BELIEVE IT WAS A

MIRACLE.

Reporter: MEREDITH WAS

AIRLIFTED TO THE NEAREST

TRAUMA HOSPITAL.

DOCTORS DETERMINED EVEN

THOUGH SHE DIDN'T HAVE A

HISTORY OF HEART PROBLEMS,

MEREDITH HAD SUFFERED A

MASSIVE HEART ATTACK.

THE DOCTORS SAID WE PUT

IN A STENT, AND WE'VE GOT

THE BLOOD FLOW OPENED UP,

BUT THE PERIOD OF TIME SHE

WENT WITHOUT OXYGEN OR A

STEADY HEART RHYTHM, WE

DON'T EXPECT HER TO LIVE.

IMMEDIATELY I CALLED BOTH

SETS OF PARENTS AND ASKED

THEM TO PRAY.

THEY IMMEDIATELY BEGAN

CALLING OTHER PEOPLE.

AND THEY STARTED SPREADING

THE WORD AND BEFORE LONG THE

PRAYERS HAD GONE OUT, AND

LITERALLY FROM ALMOST EVERY

HABITABLE CONTINENT IN THE

WORLD, THERE WAS SOMEONE

PRAYING THAT GOD WOULD DO A

MIRACLE AND RAISE MEREDITH

UP.

Reporter: DOCTORS

CONTINUED TO PREPARE

JONATHAN FOR THE WORST.

THEY ALSO WARNED IF MEREDITH

SURVIVED THE HEART TRAUMA,

SHE WOULD HAVE EXTENSIVE

BRAIN DAMAGE.

WHEN I WAS IN THE

HOSPITAL WAITING, AND I

CALLED OUT TO GOD.

THE THOUGHT WAS, WHAT WILL I

DO WITHOUT MY WIFE?

WHAT WILL MY DAUGHTER, EIGHT

DAYS OLD, DO WITHOUT HER

MOTHER?

SO THREE TIMES A DAY, FOR 30

MINUTES TO AN HOUR, I TOOK

MY BIBLE.

I TOOK A NOTEBOOK THAT SHE

HAD OF SCRIPTURES AND

PRAYERS, AND I CRIED AND I

PRAYED AND I QUOTED

SCRIPTURES.

THAT THURSDAY MORNING,

BEFORE I GOT TO GO IN TO SEE

HER, I WAS SITTING IN THE

WAITING ROOM, HOLDING MY

BIBLE, AND I OPENED MY BIBLE

UP, AND I SENSED THAT THE

LORD WANTED TO SPEAK TO ME

ABOUT THE SITUATION.

SO I OPENED IT UP.

AND IT OPENED TO HOSEA 6.

AND THE FIRST THREE VERSES

SAY "COME AND LET US RETURN

UPTO THE LORD, FOR HE HAS

TORN AND HE WILL HEAL US.

HE WILL BIND US UP.

AFTER TWO DAYS HE WILL

REVIVE US, AND IN THE THIRD

DAY HE WILL RAISE US UP, AND

WE WILL LIVE IN HIS SIGHT."

SO I TOOK THE WORD OF GOD

AND I SAID, LORD, THIS IS

YOUR WORD FOR THIS

SITUATION.

WHEN I WENT INTO THE

HOSPITAL ROOM, I WOULD

REPEATEDLY READ OVER HER AND

QUOTE HOSEA 6 AND SAY GOD IS

GOING TO REVIVE YOU.

GOD IS GOING TO RAISE YOU

UP, AND WE ARE GOING TO LIVE

IN HIS SIGHT.

Reporter: FRIDAY,

JULY 4th, WAS MEREDITH'S

SECOND DAY IN THE HOSPITAL.

SO I WALKED IN AND I

CALLED HER NAME.

AND HER EYES FLICKERED TO

ME.

AND SO I GRABBED HER HAND,

AND I SAID, MEREDITH, I NEED

YOU TO SQUEEZE MY HAND.

AND SLOWLY SHE DID SQUEEZE

MY HAND.

AND BY THE END OF THE NIGHT,

SHE WAS ATTEMPTING TO TALK

OVER THE VENTILATOR.

SHE WAS NODDING HER HEAD,

RESPONDING TO OUR

QUESTIONS.

BUT SATURDAY MORNING,

JULY 5th, AT 8 a.m. IN

THE MORNING, I WALKED TO MY

WIFE IN THE HOSPITAL, WHO

THEY SAID WOULD NOT LIVE,

WHO THEY SAID WOULD NOT

RESPOND, WHO THEY SAID WOULD

NOT SPEAK, AND SHE WAS

SITTING ON THE BED AND SHE

SMILED AT ME AND IN A PLAIN

VOICE, SHE SAID, HEY, BABE.

I KNEW THAT THE DOCTORS HAD

DONE THEIR BEST AND THEY

MEANT WELL, BUT GOD HAD THE

FINAL SAY IN HER SITUATION.

Reporter: BECAUSE OF

HER RAPID RECOVERY, MEREDITH

WAS MOVED FROM I.C.U. THE

NEXT DAY.

ONE WEEK AFTER HER NEAR

FATAL HEART ATTACK, MEREDITH

WAS ABLE TO RETURN HOME AND

SEE OLIVIA.

I JUST REMEMBER BEING SO

GRATEFUL AND SO THANKFUL

THAT I WAS STILL THERE FOR

HER.

AND WITH HER.

AND IT WAS, LIKE, SHE KNEW

EXACTLY WHO I WAS.

Reporter: IN THE EN

SHOEING WEEKS ENSUING

WEEKS, MEREDITH UNDERWENT

CARDIAC REHABILITATION.

TODAY, THREE YEARS LATER,

MEREDITH HAS RETURNED TO

NORMAL.

I LOVE TO TELL PEOPLE

ABOUT MY TESTIMONY.

I LOVE TO PRAY FOR PEOPLE

WHO ARE HEALING AND SICK.

I LOVE TO ENCOURAGE THEM

THROUGH MY STORY.

I JUST HOPE IT BRINGS GLORY

TO GOD TO LET PEOPLE KNOW

WHAT HE IS STILL WILLING TO

DO AND CAPABLE OF DOING.

Gordon: I LOVE THIS

STORY.

AND I LOVE HOW GOD SPOKE

DIRECTLY TO JONATHAN.

HERE HE IS IN THE MIDDLE OF

WHAT IS INCREDIBLE STRESS.

WHEN YOU SEE YOUR WIFE WITH

NO PULSE, NO RESPIRATION,

SURROUNDED BY PARAMEDICS.

THEY'RE DOING THEIR BEST,

BUT THEY'RE GETTING NO

RESULTS.

AND HE IS CRYING OUT TO THE

LORD, AND GOD SPEAKS TO

HIM.

AND HE DOES EXACTLY WHAT GOD

TELLS HIM TO DO, AND AS SOON

AS THE BIBLE GOD TOLD HIM TO

GO GET TOUCHES HER, HER

PULSE COMES BACK INSTANTLY.

AND YOU HEARD FROM THE

PARAMEDIC.

IT WASN'T ANYTHING MEDICALLY

WE WERE DOING AT THAT

POINT.

WE HAD DONE OUR JOB, AND IT

DIDN'T HAVE ANY EFFECT.

THE BIBLE IS NOT SOME KIND

OF MAGIC.

REMEMBER WHAT MOSES DID.

MOSES -- GOD TOLD HIM TO

STRIKE THE ROCK WITH A STAFF

AND WATER CAME OUT.

AND THE STAFF WASN'T MAGIC

TOTEM.

IT WAS MOSES BEING OBEDIENT

TO GOD.

THE NEXT TIME, WHEN MOSES

WAS TOLD BY GOD DON'T STRIKE

IT, SPEAK TO THE ROCK, MOSES

GOES AHEAD AND STRIKES THE

ROCK, AND WATER STILL COMES

FORWARD.

BUT GOD REBUKES HIM AND

SAYS, YOU DIDN'T OBEY MY

VOICE.

HERE IS JONATHAN, AND HE IS

OBEYING THE VOICE OF THE

LORD.

AND GOD GIVES HIM THIS

WONDERFUL VERSE FROM HOSEA

6.

COME, LET US RETURN TO THE

LORD.

FOR HE WILL HEAL.

HE HAS STRICKEN, BUT HE WILL

BIND US UP.

AFTER TWO DAYS, HE WILL

REVIVE US.

ON THE THIRD DAY, HE WILL

RAISE US UP THAT WE MAY LIVE

IN THIS SIGHT.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL

PROPHECY.

THE RABBIS TAKE IT FOR THE

RESTORATION OF THE NATION OF

ISRAEL.

AND IT FITS THAT.

HERE YOU HAVE THE NATION OF

ISRAEL FOR 2000 YEARS, BEING

SCATTERED ABROAD, SCATTERED

TO ALL OF THE NATIONS.

AND THE MIRACLE OF MIRACLES

IS THE MODERN DAY EXISTENCE

OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL.

HE HAS BROUGHT THEM BACK

INTO THE LAND.

JUST AS HE PROMISED IN THE

PROPHETS.

IT IS ALSO A PROPHECY FOR

THE MESSIAH.

THE MESSIAH WILL BE

STRICKEN.

THE MESSIAH WILL BE

WOUNDED.

HE WILL BE BRUISED FOR OUR

INEQUITIES.

HE EXPLAINED, OPEN THE

SCRIPTURES TO HIM, THAT HE

WOULD SUFFER AND DIE.

AND PREDICTED THAT ON THE

THIRD DAY HE WOULD BE RAISED

FROM THE DEAD.

AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THAT

HOSEA VERSE SAYS.

HOSEA IS ALSO -- THE WHOLE

BOOK IS ABOUT HUSBANDS AND

WIVES, AND THE FAITHFULNESS

OF GOD TO HIS PEOPLE, AND

THE FAITHFULNESS HE ASKED OF

HOSEA FOR HIS WIFE, AND THE

FAITHFULNESS THAT GOD ASKED

OF JONATHAN FOR HIS WIFE,

MEREDITH.

AND IN THAT GAVE HIM A

WONDERFUL SCRIPTURE OF

RESURRECTION, THAT THAT

SCRIPTURE WAS SPOKEN OVER

MEREDITH, EVEN THOUGH SHE

WAS DEAD.

SHE WAS YET RAISED TO LIFE.

AND NOT A LIFE OF BEING A

VEGETABLE, BUT A LIFE OF

BEING A WONDERFUL MOTHER TO

THAT WONDERFUL DAUGHTER.

THAT KIND OF MIRACLE POWER

IS AVAILABLE TO ALL OF US.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS OBEY

THE FIRST PART OF THAT

VERSE.

COME, LET US RETURN TO THE

LORD.

WHEN YOU'RE IN HIS PRESENCE,

WHEN YOU ARE HEARING HIS

WORD, AND THEN WHEN YOU ARE

OBEDIENT TO THAT WORD, TO DO

EXACTLY WHAT HE TELLS YOU TO

DO, THEN INCREDIBLE THINGS

CAN HAPPEN.

WELL, IF YOU'VE BEEN CRYING

OUT FOR A MIRACLE, IF YOU'RE

NEEDING A MIRACLE, WE'RE

GOING TO BE PRAYING FOR YOUR

NEEDS.

IN JUST A MOMENT.

BUT FIRST THIS WONDERFUL

STORY.

HOW A RUNNER WON THE RACE OF

HIS LIFE THANKS TO SOME HELP

HE GOT FROM THE SIDELINES.

ALL OF THAT WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Gordon: EUGENE LOVES

RUNNING ON THEE THE

TREADMILL.

Reporter: ON A CHILLY

DAY IN 2007, EUGENE PAYNE

WAS TAKING A JOG ON HIS

FAVORITE ROUTE.

WHEN OUT OF NOWHERE, A

TAXICAB PLOWED INTO HIM.

EMERGENCY CREWS ARRIVED

WITHIN MINUTES AND AIRLIFTED

EUGENE TO THE SHOCK TRAUMA

CENTER IN BALTIMORE,

MARYLAND.

HIS HEART STOPPED SEVERAL

TIMES, BUT THE E.M.T.s

SURVIVED HIM.

THEY DIDN'T KNOW IF EUGENE

WOULD LIVE OR DIE.

ANY PATIENT WITH THIS

SEVERE AN INJURY AND LOW

BLOOD PRESSURE, THEY DON'T

DO VERY WELL.

THERE WAS A 60% CHANCE HE

WOULD EITHER DIE OR WOULD

HAVE A BAD OUT COME.

Reporter: THE MEDICAL

TEAM RUSHED EUGENE INTO

SURGERY.

DOCTORS DIAGNOSED HIM WITH

DRAMA BRAIN INJURY.

THEY SAID EVEN IF HE LIVED,

HE MIGHT HAVE TO LIVE WITH

SEVERE BRAIN DAMAGE.

HE SUFFERED A FRACTURED

NECK, BROKEN BONES, AND

INTERNAL INJURIES.

THE 12-HOUR OPERATION FELT

LIKE A LIFETIME TO EUGENE'S

WIFE, JANICE, AND THEIR

FAMILY.

MY FAITH WAS BEING

TESTED.

AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

THINK.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

AND WHENEVER DOUBT WOULD

COME IN, SOMEONE WOULD COME

IN THE ROOM AND SAY, LET'S

PRAY.

SO WE PRAYED AT LEAST SEVEN,

EIGHT TIMES WITHIN THAT

12-HOUR SURGERY.

WE WERE PRAYING AND ASKING

GOD TO SAVE MY HUSBAND'S

LIFE.

Reporter: DOCTORS HAD

TO AMPUTATE EUGENE'S RIGHT

LEG.

HE HAD TUBES COMING OUT

OF HIS NOSE, AND WE BROKE

DOWN CRYING.

I WAS, LIKE, OH, MY

GOODNESS, THIS IS NOT MY

HUSBAND.

THEY SAID, WE'RE GOING TO

GIVE YOUR HUSBAND UNTIL THE

END OF THIS WEEK.

Reporter: TWO WEEKS

LATER, EUGENE WAS STILL

ALIVE.

THREE WEEKS PASSED, AND

HE IS STILL LIVING.

I SAID, OKAY, I'M GOING TO

TRUST GOD.

Reporter: EUGENE HAD

MULTIPLE SURGERIES.

HE SUFFERED A KIDNEY

FAILURE, A STAFF INFECTION,

AND DOUBLE PNEUMONIA.

EVERY DAY WE WERE GETTING

BAD REPORTS, THAT YOUR

HUSBAND IS NOT GOING TO MAKE

IT.

Reporter: FIVE WEEKS

AFTER THE ACCIDENT, JANICE

CRIED OUT TO GOD IN

DESPERATION.

I SAID, I NEED YOU TO

SHOW ME SOME TYPE OF SIGN

THAT THIS MAN IS GOING TO

LIVE.

ON NEW YEAR'S DAY HE OPENED

HIS EYES.

THAT WAS MY SIGN.

I NEEDED THE LORD TO SAY,

OKAY, THIS IS IT.

THIS IS IT, JAN.

AND THAT WAS MY SIGN.

AND I WAS OVERWHELMED,

FILLED WITH JOY.

I WAS, LIKE, THANK YOU,

GOD.

AFTER THREE MONTHS IN THE

HOSPITAL, AND INTENSE

PHYSICAL THERAPY, EUGENE

LEARNED TO WALK AGAIN, USING

A PROSTHETIC LEG.

THAT DOCTORS WARNED HIM THAT

LIFE AT HOME WOULD NEVER BE

THE SAME.

THE DOCTORS TOLD US THAT

HE WOULD NEVER DRIVE AGAIN.

THEY SAY HE CAN NEVER BE

LEFT IN THE HOUSE BY HIMSELF

BECAUSE OF HIS TRAUMATIC

BRAIN INJURY.

THEY SAID HE WILL NEVER BE

ABLE TO GO TO THE GYM

AGAINMENT.

Reporter AGAIN.

Reporter: BUT EUGENE

WOULD NOT EXCEPT THOSE

LIMITATIONS.

TOGETHER THEY WORKED HARD.

WHENEVER HE FELT LIKE

GIVING UP, HE WOULD MAKE EYE

CONTACT, AND I SAID, YOU CAN

DO THIS.

I WOULD PUMP HIM UP AND GIVE

HIM HIS FAVORITE

SCRIPTURES.

I WOULD SAY, YOU KNOW YOUR

FAVORITE SCRIPT, YOU CAN DO

ALL THINGS THROUGH CYST.

AND HE WOULD GET UP AND BEAT

THE ODDS.

EVERYTHING THAT MAN SAID

I WOULDN'T DO, I'M DOING

AGAIN.

Reporter: EUGENE IS

DRIVING AGAIN AND WORKING

OUT AT THE GYM.

THE MAN DOCTORS DUBBED

"MIRACLE MAN" IS WORKING OUT

AGAIN.

IT WAS A MIRACLE FOR HIM

TO BE ABLE TO DRIVE AND TAKE

CARE OF HIMSELF.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.

WE'RE THANKFUL THAT GOD

WAS THERE EVERY STEP OF THE

WAY.

WHEN HE SAYS HE WILL NEVER

LEAVE NOR FORSAKE YOU, WE

ARE A LIVING TESTIMONY TO

THAT.

EVERYTHING I'VE BEEN

THROUGH, IT COULD HAVE BEEN

THE OTHER WAY.

I COULD NOT BE HERE, I COULD

BE GONE.

WE HAVE TO ENJOY LIFE WHILE

WE HAVE IT.

I CAN'T LOOK AT WHAT I DON'T

HAVE.

I HAVE TO LOOK AT WHAT I DO

HAVE.

GOD HAS BLESSED ME, AND I

GIVE HIM ALL OF THE HONOR

AND GLORY.

Gordon: GOD WANTS TO

BLESS YOU, TOO.

YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS

THROUGH CHRIST, WHO

STRENGTHENS YOU.

SOMETIMES MIRACLES COME

INSTANTLY, AND SOMETIMES

THEY COME LIKE THEY DID WITH

EUGENE, WITH THE HELP OF

WONDERFUL DOCTORS AND

THEAPTS THERAPISTS, AND THE

STRENGTH HE HAD TO BELIEVE.

BELIEVE THROUGH THE PAIN,

BELIEVE THROUGH HIS OWN

INABILITY.

AND HE SAW THE BREAKTHROUGH,

AND IT CAME FOR HIM

GRADUALLY, BUT IT CAME.

AND ALL OF THE THINGS THAT

DOCTORS TOLD HIM HE WOULD

NEVER BE ABLE TO DO, ALL OF

THE THINGS HE WAS SUPPOSEDLY

RESTRICTED, NEVER COULD BE

ALONE, NEVER DRIVE, NEVER

WORK OUT, NEVER INTERACT

WITH HIS FAMILY, ALL OF THAT

TURNED AROUND BECAUSE HE

BELIEVED THAT WITH CHRIST

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.

JESSICA IS GOING TO PRAY.

BEFORE WE PRAY, I WANT TO

READ SOME PRAYER REQUESTS

THAT HAVE COME IN ON

Facebook.

CAITCATHY HAS POSTED, "I

NEED A PRAYER.

I'M IN THE THIRD STAGE OF

KIDNEY FAILURE, AND I HAVE

BUR SIGHT BURSITIS IN MY

HIPS."

ANNIE SAYS, "THE PAIN IS

DEBILITATING.

I CAN ONLY FUNCTION IF I

TAKE PAIN MEDICATION.

I NEED TO WORK, BUT I AM

BARELY ABLE TO WALK."

SARAH WRITES, "MY CHILDREN

ALL NEED PRAYER.

MY YOUNGEST DOCTOR HAS

DIABETES, AND MY OLDER SON

HAS AUTISTIC SPECTRUM

DISORDER."

AND ROSE WRITES, "I'M GOT

FI FIBROMYALGIA."

AND JASMINE CHATS, "I

RECENTLY HAD A PAINFUL

MISCARRIAGE, AND I'M STILL

IN PAIN.

I'M ASKING FOR EMOTIONAL AND

PHYSICAL HEALING."

JESSICA, TAKE ALL OF THESE

REQUESTS AND PRAY FOR ALL OF

THESE AND THE AUDIENCE.

I'D LOVE TO.

HEAVENLY FATHER, WE THANK

YOU THAT IN YOUR KINGDOM,

THERE IS NO SICKNESS.

WE THANK YOU, GOD, THAT THE

PRICE THAT JESUS PAID

COMPLETELY COVERS ALL

SICKNESS.

SO, FATHER, WE ASK THAT YOUR

KINGDOM COME AND YOUR WILL

BE DONE RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, WE ASK THAT YOUR

PRESENCE COME AND BRINGS

PEACE WHERE THERE IS

SICKNESS.

WHERE THERE IS IMBALANCE OR

AUTOIMMUNE DISORDERS.

WE COMMAND A CREATIVE

MIRACLE IN ORGANS, FATHER,

THAT KIDNEYS AND LIVES BE

HEALED IN JESUS' NAME.

AND EVEN TO THE SPLEEN AND

TO GENETIC DISORDERS.

FATHER, WE WOULD ASK THAT

YOU WOULD REWRITE GENETIC

CODES.

THAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO HOPE

FOR FREEDOM FROM THESE

ILLNESSES WILL SEE THE

BREAKTHROUGH, GOD.

BECAUSE ARE A

MIRACLE-WORKING GOD AND A

FAITHFUL FATHER WHO DESIRES

TO HEAL YOUR CHILDREN.

THANK YOU, GOD.

FATHER, WE THANK YOU IN

ADVANCE.

WE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE,

GOD.

WE PRAISE YOU.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AND I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT

BEFORE THIS SEGMENT STARTED,

I BELIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT

SAID HEALING SPECIFICALLY

FOR KIDNEYS AND FOR LIVES

AND CREATIVE MIRACLES FOR

ORGANS.

SO WHEN THERE IS A WORD LIKE

THAT, THAT'S A WORD FROM THE

LORD, AND YOU CAN TAKE IT

AND YOU CAN STAND ON IT AND

YOU CAN EXPECT FROM THE

LORD.

Gordon: AMEN.

WELL, FOR SOMEONE, YOU'VE

GOT A CARTILAGE TEAR, AND

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE JUST

FROM THAT ONE PHRASE,

CARTILAGE TEAR.

YOU'VE ALREADY BEEN TOLD BY

THE DOCTOR IT WON'T HEAL ON

ITS OWN, AND YOU NEED A

MIRACLE.

SO GOD IS PROVIDING THAT FOR

YOU.

NOW, IN AN ACT OF FAITH,

WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO BEFORE,

TRY IT NOW AND SEE WHAT GOD

HAS DONE FOR YOU.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE'RE

HERE FOR YOU.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU 24 HOURS

A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US.

1-888-777-1999.

AND IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED

BY GOD, IF YOU'VE SEEN A

MIRACLE, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOOD REPORT.

AND IF GOD HAS SPOKEN TO YOU

SPECIFICALLY AND QUICK

QUICKENED A LIFE VERSE FOR

YOU, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

GO TO OUR Facebook PAGE,

AND YOU CAN TELL US YOUR

STORY.

WE WOULD LOVE TO TELL YOUR

STORY SO THAT OTHERS CAN BE

ENCOURAGED AND KNOW THAT GOD

IS THE SAME -- JESUS IS THE

SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER.

HE STILL SPEAKS.

HE STILL WORKS MIRACLES.

YOU CAN STILL TRUST HIM.

UP NEXT, A MUSLIM MAN IS

BLIND FOR 12 YEARS.

FIND OUT HOW HE RECEIVED HIS

SIGHT RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: HE SPENT 12

YEARS OF HIS LIFE COMPLETELY

BLIND.

HE TURNED TO A FRIEND FOR

HELP.

AND THAT'S WHEN THIS MUSLIM

MAN SAW HIS FIRST MIRACLE.

Reporter: FATAI WAKES

UP HAPPY TO SEE THE WORLD

AROUND HIM EACH DAY.

HE TAKES NOTHING FOR GRANTED

BECAUSE FOR 12 YEARS HE

LIVED IN DARKNESS.

I HAD A DREAM IN WHICH A

LARGE BEAST WAS TRYING TO

PLUCK OUT MY EYES.

AFTER THAT MY SIGHT GOT

WORSE AND WORSE.

I USED MEDICINE, BUT NOTHING

WORKED.

ONE MORNING I WOKE UP AND I

WAS COMPLETELY BLIND.

Reporter: FATAI HAD

EARNED A LIVING AS A TRUCK

DRIVER, BUT WITHOUT HIS

SIGHT, HE LOST EVERYTHING.

I SOLD MY TRUCK TO PAY

FOR MEDICAL TREATMENTS.

WHEN THE MONEY RAN OUT, I

BEGGED.

ONE TIME I WAS CROSSING THE

STREET AND A CAR HIT ME.

PEOPLE CAME TO MY AID AND

TOOK ME HOME.

Reporter: SOON AFTER

THAT, FATAI'S WIFE AND

MOTHER BOTH DIED.

HE COULDN'T RAISE HIS BABY

DAUGHTER ALONE, SO A

RELATIVE TOOK HER IN.

ONE DAY A PASTOR TOLD FATAI

ABOUT A MEETING WHERE CBN

PROGRAMS WOULD BE SHOWN.

I KNEW FATAI SINCE HE WAS

A CHILD.

I KNOW THERE IS NOTHING GOD

CANNOT DO.

SO I REFUSED TO GIVE UP ON

FATAI.

I WAS A MUSLIM, BUT AFTER

I LOST MY SIGHT, I TRIED

EVERYTHING, EVEN TRADITIONAL

HEALERS.

I HAD LOST ALL HOPE.

BUT WHEN THE PASTOR INVITED

ME TO THE CRUSADE, I DECIDED

TO GO.

Reporter: AT THE

MEETING, FATAI LISTENED TO

"THE 700 CLUB" ON THE

TELEVISION.

DURING THE SHOW, THE HOSTS

PRAYED.

I FELT SOMETHING

TWITCHING ME.

I WAS AFRAID AND THOUGHT I

WOULD LEAVE WITH EVEN MORE

PROBLEMS I WENT IN WITH.

THEN I FELT SOMETHING, LIKE

A FLASH OF LIGHTNING ACROSS

MY EYES.

A STICKY FLUID CAME OUT OF

MY EYES.

THEN SUDDENLY THEY POPPED

OPEN, AND I COULD SEE.

I WAS SHOCKED AND SHOUTED,

PRAISE TO GOD.

THAT DAY I ACCEPTED JESUS AS

MY SAVIOR.

Reporter: AFTER

REGAINING HIS SIGHT, THERE

WAS ONLY ONE PLACE FATAI

WANTED TO GO.

I WENT TO SEE MY

DAUGHTER, NOT KNOWING WHAT

TO EXPECT.

WHEN I SET EYES ON HER, I

CALLED OUT TO HER AND SHE

RAN TO ME.

WE EMBRACED AND REJOICED

TOGETHER.

Reporter: FATAI NOW

HELPS THE CBN TEAM DURING

OUTREACHES, AND TELLS

EVERYONE HE CAN ABOUT HIS

HEALING.

SO FAR AT LEAST THREE PEOPLE

HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIVES TO

CHRIST BECAUSE OF HIS

MIRACLE.

HE IS ALSO WORKING AND

TAKING CARE OF HIS

DAUGHTER.

GOD USED "THE 700 CLUB"

AND CBN FOR MY HEALING.

I AM VERY HAPPY.

AND I HAVE DANCED AND

REJOICED MANY TIMES.

THANK YOU.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A PART OF "THE 700

CLUB," IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF

"THE 700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART

OF THAT WONDERFUL MIRACLE.

WITHOUT YOU, WE WOULDN'T BE

ABLE TO DO THIS SHOW.

WITHOUT YOU, WE WOULDN'T BE

ABLE TO SEND THAT SHOW TO

AFRICA AND HAVE SOMEONE SIT

THERE AND WATCH.

AND HERE IS A MUSLIM MAN,

AND JESUS REACHED OUT AND

TOUCHED HIM AND SAID, I

CHOOSE YOU.

I'M GOING TO HEAL YOU.

IT WAS BECAUSE THERE WAS A

PREACHER.

HOW CAN THEY HEAR UNLESS

THERE IS A PREACHER.

AND HOW CAN THEY PREACHER

UNLESS THEY'RE SENT?

IF YOU'RE PART OF IT, YOU'RE

PART OF THAT MIRACLE.

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, WE

ENCOURAGE YOU TO JOIN.
