Gordon: IT'S THE

EPIDEMIC AFFECTING OVER

40 MILLION AMERICANS.

IF YOU KEEP YOUR MIND ON

HIM, AND NOT ON THE PROBLEM,

YOU'RE KEEPING YOUR MIND ON

HIM.

Gordon: HOW TO LIVE

FREE FROM ANXIETY ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

Gordon: ON "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE," WE USE

OTHER AND EXPLORE TOPICS

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

Gordon: WELL, GOOD

MORNING, AND WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

WE ALL KNOW THAT WE'RE NOT

TO WORRY.

WE'RE ALL SUPPOSED TO TRUST

GOD.

BUT, STILL, THE PRESSURES OF

LIFE CAN BE OVERWHELMING.

AND IT CAN BE A GREAT

CHALLENGE JUST TO MAINTAIN

OUR OWN PEACE.

TAKE A LOOK.

MY KID IS SICK.

THE DOCTOR SAID SHE WON'T

MAKE IT.

WE'RE FIGHTING ALL THE

TIME.

IS THIS EVER GOING TO STOP?

HOW ARE WE GOING TO MAKE

ENDS MEET?

IT WASN'T SUPPOSED TO BE

LIKE THAT.

I WISH I COULD EXCUSE IT

ALL.

I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE

SIX MONTHS TO LIVE.

IT WASN'T SUPPOSED TO BE

LIKE THAT.

MY KID IS SICK.

THE DOCTORS SAID SHE WON'T

MAKE IT.

I DON'T KNOW HOW WE'RE

GOING TO MAKE IT.

I WISH I COULD ESCAPE IT

ALL.

I WISH I COULD ESCAPE IT

ALL.

*

Gordon: TO ANSWER THAT

QUESTION, HOW DO YOU

MAINTAIN PEACE, WELL, FIRST

YOU'VE GOT TO KEEP IN MIND,

WHERE DOES PEACE COME FROM?

DOES IT COME FROM WITHIN

US?

THAT'S WHERE WE'RE LOOKING

FOR IT SOMETIMES.

AND WHEN WE HAVE THAT PEACE,

WE KNOW IT IS WITHIN US, BUT

HOW DO WE GET THERE?

HOW DO YOU GET TO THAT

PLACE?

THE BIBLE ANSWERS IT,

NUMBERS 6, WHERE THIS IS THE

IRONIC BLESSING, THIS IS THE

BLESSING THAT THE PRIESTS OF

THE TEMPLE WOULD SAY OVER

THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.

AND IT WAS ONE THAT WAS A

SIGN THAT THIS IS HOW GOD

WAS GOING TO SEAL THEM AND

PUT HIS NAME ON THEM.

HERE IT IS, NUMBERS 6: "THE

LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU,

THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE

UPON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS

TO.

THE LORD LIFT UP HIS

COUNTENANCE UPON YOU AND

GIVE YOU PEACE."

NOW, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THAT,

THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE TO

SHINE UPON YOU, LIFT UP HIS

COUNTENANCE UPON YOU, THE

LORD BE GRACIOUS TO YOU --

ALL OF THOSE THINGS -- WHO

IS THE SOURCE OF PEACE?

WELL, IT'S GOD.

AND IT'S WHEN YOU'RE IN HIS

PRESENCE, WHERE HIS

COUNTENANCE IS SHINING UPON

YOU.

THAT IS HOW YOU GET PEACE.

NOW, IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,

UNDER THE LAW, THERE WAS

ANOTHER WAY TO GET PEACE.

AND THAT WAS TO OBSERVE

EVERYTHING IN THE TORAH.

AND IF YOU DID THAT, HERE IS

THE PROMISE FOR YOU.

IT'S IN PSALM 119: "GREAT

PEACE HAVE THOSE WHO LOVE

YOUR LAW, AND NOTHING CAUSES

THEM TO STUMBLE."

NOW, FOR YOU AND ME IN

PRESENT AGE, HOW DO YOU DO

THAT?

BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW WE'VE

SINNED.

WE ALL HAVE FALLEN SHORT OF

THE GLORY OF THE LORD.

TODAY, HOW DO YOU GET PEACE

WHEN YOU KNOW YOU'RE NOT

KEEPING THE LAW?

NOW, IF THERE IS ANYTHING

YOU'RE DOING THAT IS

VIOLATING YOUR CONSCIENCE,

WELL, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

HAVE PEACE.

AND THERE IS NOT GOING TO BE

ANY WAY YOU HAVE PEACE UNTIL

YOU LEAVE THAT AND PUT THAT

BEHIND YOU AND TURN FROM

IT.

AND THAT'S ONE OF THE

CONDITIONS.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE DOING

THINGS THAT YOU KNOW ARE

RIGHT, AND DOING THE THINGS

THAT YOU KNOW GOD WILL BE

PLEASED WITH.

IF YOU DO THAT, THEN YOU'LL

HAVE THAT GREAT PEACE.

BUT IF YOU'VE MESSED UP, AND

WE ALL HAVE, HOW DO YOU GET

IT?

WELL, ROMANS 5: "THEREFORE,

HAVING BEEN JUSTIFIED BY

FAITH" -- THAT MEANS WE

BELIEVE IN WHAT JESUS DID --

"WE HAVE PEACE WITH GOD

THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS

CHRIST.

THROUGH WHOM WE ALSO HAVE

ACCESS BY FAITH INTO THIS

GRACE IN WHICH WE STAND AND

REJOICE IN THE HOPE OF THE

GLORY OF GOD."

NOW HE ADDS SOMETHING TO IT

IN THE VERY NEXT VERSE

BECAUSE SO OFTEN WE THINK,

OKAY, WE'RE GOING TO TURN

FROM OUR EVIL WAYS, WE'RE

GOING TO EMBRACE WHAT JESUS

IINSTRUCTS US TO DO.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

WONDERFUL.

WELL, JESUS PROMISED, NO,

OFFENSES WILL COME,

PERSECUTIONS WILL COME.

YOU CAN'T EXPECT EVERYTHING

TO BE WONDERFUL.

HERE IS WHAT PAUL SAYS IN

THE VERY NEXT VERSE, "NOT

ONLY THAT, WE GLORY IN

TRIBULATIONS."

DO YOU DO THAT?

WHEN BAD THINGS COME TO YOU,

DO YOU GLKIN THEM?

"KNOWING THATç TRIBULATION

PRODUCES PERSEVERANCE, AND

PERSEVERANCE, CHARACTER, AND

CHARACTER HOPE."

NOW HOPE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT

BECAUSE THE LOVE OF GOD HAS

BEEN POURED OUT IN OUR

HEARTS BY THE HOLY SPIRIT,

WHO WAS GIVEN TO US.

US."

HERE IS THE SECRET.

WHEN YOU'RE IN TRIBULATIONS,

WHEN BAD THINGS ARE

HAPPENING TO YOU, WHEN LIFE

IS COMING AT YOU FULL SPEED

AND YOUR WONDERING HOW IN

THE WORLD DID THIS EVER

HAPPEN?

WHERE AM I?

WHERE IS GOD?

WELL, THAT'S EXACTLY THE

TIME TO BE TURNING TO HIM

AND LET HIS LOVE BE SHED

ABROAD IN YOUR HEART.

NUMBER ONE, IT WILL CAST OUT

ALL FEAR.

YOU WON'T HAVE ANY FEAR OF

THE FUTURE BECAUSE YOU KNOW

THE FUTURE IS IN HIS HAND.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM WITH

THAT.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM WITH YOUR

LIFE.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM WITH YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCES.

AND THEN YOU WALK INTO THIS

TREMENDOUS PROMISE FROM

ISAIAH 26: "YOU WILL KEEP

HIM IN PERFECT PEACE, WHO'S

MIND IS STAYED ON YOU,

BECAUSE HE TRUSTS IN YOU."

WHEN I GET IN TROUBLE, WHEN

I FEEL THINGS ARE NOT GOING

THE WAY I WANT, WHEN IT'S

JUST NOT ADDING UP RIGHT, I

DON'T LOOK AT THE PROBLEM

ANYMORE.

I CAN SEE THAT COMING.

WHAT DO I DO?

I GO FIND A QUIET PLACE

WHERE I CAN JUST FOCUS ON

HIM.

IF YOU KEEP YOUR MIND ON HIM

AND NOT ON THE PROBLEM,

YOU'RE KEEPING YOUR MIND ON

THE ANSWER.

AND YOU WILL HAVE THE PEACE

THAT YOU'RE SEEKING.

WELL, IF YOU WANT HELP WITH

THIS, IF YOU'RE GOING

THROUGH A DIFFICULT TIME AND

YOU JUST WANT TO HELP FOCUS,

HOW DO I GET INTO THE

PRESENCE OF GOD?

HOW DO YOU ENJOY

TRIBULATIONS?

HOW DO I COUNT IT ALL JOY?

WELL, WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

1-888-777-1999.

IT'S OUR HONOR, IT'S OUR

PRIVILEGE TO PRAY WITH YOU,

AND WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

SO ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

CALL US.

STILL AHEAD, A NEW MOM IN A

BATTLE JUST TO BREATHE.

I HEARD GURGLING IN MY

EARS.

IT FELT LIKE I WAS TRYING TO

BREATHE UNDER WATER.

I COULD ACTUALLY FEEL MYSELF

LOSING LIFE.

Gordon: HEAR HOW SHE

MAINTAINED HER PEACE WHEN

DOCTORS SAID SHE NEEDED

OPEN-HEART SURGERY.

AND WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR YOU

AND YOUR NEEDS RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: JOYA THOMPSON

HAD JUST BEEN RELEASED FROM

THE HOSPITAL WITH A NEW

BABY.

THEN A FEW DAYS LATER, SHE

WOUND UP THERE AGAIN.

THIS TIME FIGHTING FOR HER

LIFE.

DOCTORS DETERMINED THAT JOYA

NEEDED OPEN-HEART SURGERY.

AND JOYA'S MOM HAD A VERY

DIFFERENT PLAN.

I WOKE UP ABOUT 4:00 IN

THE MORNING, AND I FELT LIKE

I WAS TRYING TO BREATHE

UNDER WATER.

IT STARTED IN MY ABDOMEN AND

IT JUST -- I COULD NOT BEAR

THE PAIN.

Reporter: FOUR DAYS

AFTER GIVING BIRTH TO HER

SECOND CHILD, JOYA THOMPSON

EXPERIENCED THE MOST

TERRIFYING NIGHT OF HER

LIFE.

I HEARD GURGLING IN MY

EARS.

IT FELT LIKE I WAS TRYING TO

BREATHE UNDER WATER.

Reporter: JOYA HAD ALSO

GAINED AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT

OF WEIGHT, ESPECIALLY IN HER

LEGS AND FEET.

I KNEW THAT SOMETHING WAS

HORRIBLY WRONG.

SO I WAS TRYING TO DECIDE IF

WE NEEDED TO CALL 9-1-1 AND

HAVE THE AMBULANCE COME PICK

US UP, OR IF WE CAN MAKE IT

IN THE CAR.

I CHOSE IT WOULD PROBABLY BE

BEST IF WE JUST GET IN THE

CAR AND GO BECAUSE I FELT

LIKE I WAS FADING VERY

QUICKLY.

I REMEMBER LISTENING TO MY

HEART BEAT, AND IT WAS

STRUGGLING, JUST EVERY

SINGLE BEAT.

IT WASN'T WORKING RIGHT.

I JUST THOUGHT, SOMETHING IS

WRONG WITH MY BODY, AND I'M

LOSING LIFE RIGHT NOW.

I COULD ACTUALLY FEEL MYSELF

LOSING LIFE.

WHEN I FIRST GOT INTO THE

E.R., THEY COULD TELL I WAS

HAVING TROUBLE BREATHING, SO

I WAS ADMITTED RIGHT AWAY.

Reporter: THE DOCTORS

PERFORMED SEVERAL TESTS.

THE DIAGNOSIS: CONGESTIVE

HEART FAILURE.

BUT THEY DIDN'T KNOW THE

CAUSE.

WHEN I WAS IN THE

HOSPITAL, I WAS JUST TRYING

TO STAY CALM BECAUSE I FELT

LIKE I DON'T THINK THEY CAN

HELP ME.

AND ALL OF THE TESTS THAT

THEY WERE DOING, THEY

WEREN'T FINDING AN ANSWER, I

FELT.

SO I WAS JUST TRYING TO STAY

PEACEFUL BECAUSE I DIDN'T

WANT TO PANIC IN MY LAST

MOMENTS.

SO I WAS JUST TRYING TO JUST

CONTINUE TO FEEL THE PEACE

OF GOD AND TO TRUST HIM

THROUGHOUT IT ALL.

Reporter: WHILE JOYA'S

HUSBAND, DAVID, WAS TAKING

CARE OF THEIR TWO CHILDREN,

JOYA CALLED HER MOM.

AND I SAID, HEY, MOM,

IT'S JOYA.

AND SHE IS LIKE, WHAT'S

GOING ON?

ARE YOU OKAY?

I SAID, WELL, I'M IN THE

HOSPITAL.

I DON'T QUITE KNOW WHAT'S

GOING ON, BUT I JUST WANTED

TO GIVE YOU A CALL SO YOU

COULD JUST BEGIN PRAYING AND

MAKING SURE EVERYTHING IS

OKAY.

SHE SAID OKAY.

BUT AT THAT MOMENT I WAS ON

THE PHONE WITH HER, THE

DOCTOR CAME INTO THE ROOM.

AND I SAID, WELL, MOM, CAN

YOU HOLD ON FOR A MOMENT.

AND I DIDN'T PLACE HER ON

HOLD.

I JUST PUT THE PHONE DOWN IN

MY LAP.

HE CAME AND SAT DOWN AND HE

SAID, YOU KNOW, JOYA, YOU'RE

GOING TO HAVE TO HAVE

OPEN-HEART SURGERY.

WE'RE GOING TO SCHEDULE YOU

FOR EMERGENCY OPEN-HEART

SURGERY.

THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN RIGHT

NOW.

AND THEN I HEARD THE DOCTOR

SAYING TO HER THAT SHE HAD

TORN A VALVE IN HER HEART,

AND THAT THEY WERE GOING TO

HAVE TO FLY HER TO THE

SEATTLE HOSPITAL.

WE'RE GOING TO DO ONE

LAST TEST, AND WE THINK THAT

THERE IS A TEAR IN YOUR

HEART.

AND THE VALVE OF YOUR

HEART.

AND WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO GO

IN AND REPAIR THAT TODAY.

AND HE IS EXPLAINING TO ME

THAT I'LL BE MEDICATION THE

REST OF MY LIFE.

AND I WON'T BE ABLE TO

BREASTFEED MY CHILD, WHO IS

ONLY FOUR DAYS OLD AT THIS

POINT.

AND, I MEAN, THE NEWS THAT

HE WAS TELLING ME WAS

DEVASTATING.

HE SAYS, OKAY, WE'RE GOING

TO DO ONE LAST TEST.

AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO COME

BACK AND GET YOU AND WE'RE

GOING TO TRANSPORT YOU SO

THAT YOU CAN HAVE YOUR

EMERGENCY OPEN-HEART

SURGERY.

AND I SAID OKAY.

AND THEN THE CONVERSATION

ENDED, AND JOYA GOT BACK ON

THE PHONE.

AND SHE SAID, DID YOU HEAR

THAT?

AND I SAID, YES, I DID.

AND SO WE MADE A PLAN.

I SAID, OKAY, MOM, WE HAVE

ABOUT 15 MINUTES BEFORE

THEY'RE BACK IN HERE TO DO

MY NEXT TEST.

WE NEED TO PRAY.

I'LL CALL MY PASTORS.

YOU CALL WHO YOU NEED TO

PRAY, AND WE'LL GO FROM

THERE.

WE HUNG UP, AND I GOT

DOWN ON MY KNEES, ON MY

BEDSIDE, AND I GOT THE

PHONE, AND I CALLED "THE 700

CLUB."

AND THIS IS WHAT I SAID, ALL

I NEED IS SOMEBODY THAT WILL

BELIEVE GOD WITH ME BECAUSE

I ALREADY BELIEVE THAT GOD

CAN HEAL HER BODY.

Reporter: JOYA HAD THE

FINAL TEST, AND ECHO

ECOCARDIOGRAPH.

AND SHE WAITED FOR HER

DOCTOR.

HE SAYS, I DON'T KNOW

WHAT HAPPENED.

AND I SAYS, OKAY.

AND HE SAYS, WE DON'T SEE A

TEAR IN YOUR HEART.

AND I SAID, OKAY.

AND HE SAID, SO YOU DON'T

HAVE TO HAVE OPEN-HEART

SURGERY AND YOU'RE GETTING

BETTER.

AND I'VE NEVER SEEN THIS

BEFORE.

WE DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IT

WAS SO BAD AND WHY YOU'RE

GETTING SO MUCH BETTER THIS

FAST.

AND I JUST REMEMBER

THINKING, THANK YOU, GOD.

THANK YOU, GOD.

BECAUSE I REALIZED HE HEALED

MY HEART.

AND WE TALK ABOU A LOT

ABOUT GOD BEING A HEART

SURGEON AND HE IS ABLE TO DO

HEART SURGERY, AND WE TALK

ABOUT THAT IN AN EMOTIONAL

WAY.

OH, GOD, PLEASE CHANGE MY

HEART.

BUT TO KNOW THAT HE CAN

CHANGE MY EMOTIONAL HEART

AND THAT HE CAN CHANGE MY

PHYSICAL HEART, THAT HE

LITERALLY DID HEART SURGERY

ON ME, WAS MIRACULOUS.

Reporter: TODAY THEIR

DAUGHTER, JORDAN, IS THREE,

AND THEIR SON, ISAIAH, IS

ONE AND A HALF.

IT IS A PRIVILEGE TO

WATCH THEM GROW UP.

TO WATCH THEM READ AND LEARN

THEIR NUMBERS.

SEEING ISAIAH WALK, AND

HEARING HIS FIRST WORDS.

AND WHEN I WAS IN THE

HOSPITAL, I DIDN'T THINK

THAT I WOULD HAVE THAT

OPPORTUNITY.

SO TO SEE MY BABY BOY

GROWING UP, AND TO SEE MY

BABY GIRL, IS A BLESSING.

AND IT IS SOMETHING THAT I

WILL ALWAYS TREASURE.

EVERY BREATH THAT I TAKE, I

TREASURE.

AND I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR

GOD.

Gordon: GOD IS ABLE TO

DO HEART SURGERY.

AND WE'RE GOING TO SEE WHAT

HAPPENS HERE.

WE'VE GOT JOANNA IN

LOUISIANA, AND SHE IS ON THE

PHONE.

HI, JOANNA, WELCOME TO "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

Caller: HELLO.

Gordon: I UNDERSTAND

YOU'RE HAVING HEART

TROUBLE?

Caller: I HAVE A REAL,

REAL BAD HEARTBEAT.

HE SAID I H@T A LIGHT HEART

ATTACK LAST YEAR, IN

SEPTEMBER, AND HE SAID IT

WAS FROM 45 YEARS OF

SMOKING.

HE SAID I HAD A PARTIAL

ARTERY BLOCK.

BUT THE THING IS NOW THAT IT

IS JUST A REAL FAST

HEARTBEAT, IN MY HEAD, IN MY

EARS, AND IN MY HEART.

AND MY BLOOD PRESSURE, I

KEPT TAKING IT, BUT IT'S

FINE.

AND THEN I GET SO FEARFUL

AND FULL OF ANXIETY.

I JUST NEED YOU TO AGREE

WITH ME.

I'M SICK OF THIS THING

HERE.

Gordon: ALL RIGHT.

GOD IS SICK OF IT, TOO.

HAVE YOU STOPPED SMOKING?

Caller: OH, YES.

I STOPPED SMOKING SINCE LAST

YEAR IN SEPTEMBER.

Gordon: HAVE YOU

FORGIVEN YOURSELF FOR THAT?

Caller: I DON'T KNOW --

YEAH -- WELL, NOT EXACTLY.

Gordon: OKAY.

WHY DON'T WE GET THROUGH

THAT FIRST.

BECAUSE I BELIEVE

FORGIVENESS IS A KEY TO

HEALING.

AND SOMETIMES WE DON'T

FORGIVE OURSELVES.

AND WE START THINKING, OKAY,

I'M RESPONSIBLE.

I'M TO BLAME.

I DID ALL THIS, AND

THEREFORE I DESERVE IT.

Caller: UH-HUH.

Gordon: IS ANY OF THAT

GOING THROUGH YOUR HEAD?

Caller: YES, SIR, IT

SURE IS.

RIGHT ON THE DOT.

Gordon: CAN YOU JUST

SAY, I FORGIVE JOANNA.

Caller: I FORGIVE

JOANNA.

Gordon: SHE DIDN'T KNOW

45 YEARS WHAT WAS GOING TO

HAPPEN WHEN SHE STARTED

SMOKING.

Caller: SHE DIDN'T KNOW

45 YEARS AGO WHAT WOULD

HAPPEN.

Gordon: AND CIGARETTES

WERE ADDICTIVE.

Caller: YES, YES, YES.

Gordon: AND YOU DON'T

HAVE TO BLAME YOURSELF.

YOU CAN LET ALL OF THAT GO,

JOANNA.

Caller: ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU, JESUS.

Gordon: HAS JESUS

FORGIVEN YOU?

Caller: YES, HE HAS.

Gordon: SO YOU'VE

FORGIVEN YOU, TOO?

Caller: YES, I HAVE.

Gordon: YOU PUT ALL OF

THAT IN YOUR PAST.

A GOOD WAY TO LOOK AT IT IS,

THE PAST IS OVER; I'VE GOT A

GOOD FUTURE TO LOOK FORWARD

TO.

Caller: PRAISE GOD.

Gordon: GOD WANTS YOU

TO KNOW HE'S GOT PLANS FOR

YOU.

AND HE WANTS TO GIVE YOU A

HOPE AND A FUTURE.

Caller: PRAISE GOD.

Gordon: JESSICA IS

GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU, AND

WE'RE GOING TO AGREE.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS, JESUS

SAYS, "IF TWO OR MORE AGREE

TOUCHING ANYTHING, IT SHALL

BE DONE."

SO THAT MEANS GOD IS GOING

TO DO A MIRACLE FOR YOU.

BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO AGREE

ABOUT YOUR HEART.

Caller: YES.

Gordon: AND ALL OF THAT

RACING, ALL OF THOSE

PALPITATIONS, ALL THAT FEAR

IS GOING TO LEAVE YOU RIGHT

NOW.

Caller: YES, LORD.

Gordon: AND YOU'RE

GOING TO BE HEALED.

SO JESSICA IS GOING TO PRAY,

AND WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE.

AND IN AN ACT OF FAITH, PUT

YOUR HAND OVER YOUR HEART.

Caller: PRAISE GOD.

Gordon: AND LET'S

BELIEVE GOD.

ALL RIGHT, JESSICA.

JOANNA, IT IS SO GREAT TO

HEAR YOUR FAITH OVER THE

PHONE, WHEN YOU SAY I AM

SICK OF THIS ILLNESS.

AND IT IS GOD'S WILL TO HEAL

YOU.

SO LET'S GO TO HIM IN

PRAYER.

HEAVENLY FATHER, WE JUST

THANK YOU.

WE THANK YOU THAT JESUS

CHRIST PAID THE ULTIMATE

PRICE FOR ALL SICKNESS.

FATHER, I THANK YOU FOR

JOANNA.

I THANK YOU FOR HER FAITH,

TO COME BEFORE YOU AND TO

GRAB HOLD OF THE HEM OF YOUR

GARMENT, GOD.

FATHER, WE SAY KINGDOM OF

GOD COME, AND WILL OF GOD BE

DONE IN JOANNA'S BODY, ON

EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.

FATHER, WE THANK YOU THAT

THERE IS NO ILLNESS IN

HEAVEN.

LORD, WE ASK FOR A CREATIVE

MIRACLE, THAT EVERY PART OF

HER HEART, EVERY ORGAN, BE

MADE NEW, BE RECONSTRUCTED,

DOWN TO THE CELLULAR LEVEL.

FATHER, WE THANK YOU THAT IF

IT MATTERS TO US, IT MATTERS

TO YOU.

SO, FATHER, WE JUST COME IN

AGREEMENT, AND WE ASK IN

JESUS' NAME THAT RIGHT NOW

YOU TOUCH HER BODY, AND THE

PALPITATIONS WOULD GO DOWN.

WE SPEAK TO THE BODY, BE

MADE WHOLE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

AMEN.

Gordon: AMEN.

JOANNA, I FELT THAT ONE.

WHAT'S GOING ON WITH YOU?

Caller: YEAH.

THE FAST HEART BEATING -- I

MEAN, IT'S GONE.

Gordon: AMEN.

Caller: I MEAN REALLY.

PRAISE THE LORD.

Gordon: GOD IS GOOD,

ISN'T HE?

Caller: HE SURELY IS.

Gordon: HE WHO HAS

BEGUN A GOOD WORK IS GOING

TO COMPLETE IT IN YOU.

I WOULD LOOK FORWARD TO A

LOT OF TRANMATIONS.

THEY'RE GOING TO HAPPEN IN

YOUR LIFE.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE

COMPLETELY REMADE.

START ASKING GOD, WHAT DOES

HE WANT YOU TO DO?

WHAT'S THE FUTURE AND HOPE

FOR YOU?

BECAUSE HE WANTS TO REVEAL

IT TO YOU.

SO JUST PRAISE HIM FOR IT.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL

MIRACLE.

Caller: I SURE WILL.

AMEN.

Gordon: THANKS FOR

CALLING.

WE'VE GOT SOME PRAYER

REQUESTS.

PAMELA SAYS, "I SUFFER WITH

SEVERE BACK PAIN FROM

SCOLIOSIS AND ARTHRITIS.

I'M FOUR AND A HALF MONTHS

PREGNANT.

PAIN IS EXCRUCIATING, AND

I'M BECOMING DEPRESSED AT

THE THOUGHT OF FIVE MORE

MONTHS OF PAIN.

PLEASE PRAY FOR ME AND MY

UNBORN BABY, ELISE.

MY DAUGHTER IS 21 AND HAS

M.S., AND SHE CANNOT WALK

UNASSISTED.

HER FEET AND TURNING INWARD

AND HER WHOLE BODY IS WEEK.

I KNOW THAT GOD CAN HEAL.

."

AMEN TO THAT.

"PLEASE PRAY FOR A MIRACLE

BECAUSE SHE GROWS MORE

DISCOURAGED EVERY DAY."

ALLISON, "CAN YOU PLEASE

PRAY FOR ME.

MY HUSBAND OF 10 YEARS HAS A

GIRLFRIEND AND ASKED FOR

DIVORCE.

WE HAVE TWO CHILDREN

TOGETHER AND I DON'T WANT

OUR MARRIAGE TO END.

HE ALSO MADE SOME SERIOUSLY

BAD BUSINESS CHOICES, AND WE

ARE IN FINANCIAL DIRE

STRAITS.

IT IS HARD TO KEEP MY EYE ON

JESUS, BUT I KNOW HE CAN DO

MIRACLES.

SO PLEASE PRAY FOR US."

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

ALLISON, ELISE'S DAUGHTER

AND PAMELA, AND WE'RE GOING

TO LIFT THE BALL UP TO THE

THRONE.

LET'S CREATE A CIRCLE OF

PRAYER FOR THESE WONDERFUL

PEOPLE, THAT GOD WOULD

STRETCH FORWARD HIS HAND TO

DO WONDERS TODAY.

LORD, WE LIFT ALL OF THESE

NEEDS TO YOU.

WE PRAY SPECIFICALLY FOR

PAMELA AND HER SCOLIOSIS,

AND WE ASK THAT THAT SPINE

BE STRAIGHTENED NOW BY THE

POWER OF GOD.

WE ASK FOR MARRIAGES TO COME

BACK TOGETHER.

AND, LORD, FOR THIS HUSBAND,

THAT HIS EYES WOULD BE OPEN

AND THAT HE WOULD SEE, AND

THAT HE WOULD WANT TO BE A

FATHER TO HIS CHILDREN AND A

GOOD HUSBAND TO HIS WIFE,

THAT HIS HEART WOULD TURN

AND IT WOULD JUST MELT

BEFORE YOUR PRESENCE.

AND THEY WOULD BE REUNITED.

AND FOR THIS DAUGHTER WHO

HAS M.S., WE JUST COMMAND

THAT DISEASE, THAT WASTING

THING, TO LEAVE IN JESUS'

NAME.

THAT THESE FEET TURN OUT

NORMAL AND ALL WEAKNESS IN

THE BODY AND ALL TREMORS

DEPART NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

GO.

YOU HAVE NO AUTHORITY HERE.

WE BIND YOU NOW.

YOU MUST LEAVE IN JESUS'

NAME.

AND LORD, NOW, FOR THOSE WHO

ARE JUST WATCHING AND

WONDERING, WE JUST SPEAK TO

THEM NOW IN THE NAME OF

JESUS BE HEALED.

AND WE ASK THAT YOUR

PRESENCE WOULD COME ON THEM,

THAT YOU WOULD LIFT UP YOUR

FACE ON THEM, THAT YOUR

COUNTENANCE WOULD SHINE OVER

THEM AND GIVE THEM PEACE.

FOR WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

WELL, IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED

AND HEALED, WE WANT TO SHARE

IN YOUR GOOD REPORT.

AND IF YOU WANT US TO PRAY

FOR YOU, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO

IS CALL US, AND WE'LL BE

DELIGHTED TO.

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

1-888-777-1999.

AND IF YOU WANT PRAYER

REQUESTS INTO OUR Facebook

PAGE OR INTO OUR CHATROOM,

WE HAVE A WHOLE ROOM OF

CHATTERS THAT PRAY EVERY

DAY.

AND THEN THERE ARE LOTS OF

PEOPLE PRAYING ON OUR

Facebook PAGE.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS POST

IT.

UP NEXT, IF YOU'VE EVER BEEN

WORRIED ABOUT PAYING YOUR

BILLS, YOU'RE NOT ALONE.

I WOULD BE VERY CONCERNED

OF EVERY DOLLAR THAT WOULD

LEAVE MY CHECKBOOK, TO BE

SURE THAT ONE WAY OR ANOTHER

I WOULD GET IT BACK.

Gordon: SEE HOW THIS

MAN FOUND PEACE, AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: A FEW YEARS

AGO, STEVE LIONDA SPENT MOST

OF HIM TIME OBSESSING ABOUT

MONEY.

THEN HIS WIFE FOUND AN

INVESTMENT STRATEGY THAT

ENDED THEIR WORRIES FOR

GOOD.

I WAS ALWAYS CONCERNED

ABOUT HOW I WOULD FUND MY

CHILD'S EDUCATION OR HOW I

WOULD MAYBE SAVE FOR THEIR

COLLEGE EDUCATION.

THIS USED TO CONSUME ME.

AS A PROVIDER, WORRYING

ABOUT WE HAVE THREE COLLEGE

TUITIONS, WEDDINGS, AND HE

WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE HAD

ALL OF THAT.

Reporter: STEVE WAS A

SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN, BUT

WORRIED ALL OF THE TIME

ABOUT MONEY.

I WOULD BE VERY CONCERNED

OF EVERY DOLLAR THAT WOULD

LEAVE MY CHECKBOOK, TO BE

SURE THAT ONE WAY OR ANOTHER

I WOULD GET IT BACK.

Reporter: STEVE AND HIS

WIFE, LYNN, WENT TO CHURCH

AND EVEN GAVE OFFERINGS.

IT WAS MORE OF AN

OBLIGATION OR JUST PUTTING

IN A FEW DOLLARS WHEN THE

BASKET CAME AROUND.

Reporter: THAT ALL

CHANGED WHEN LYNN STARTED

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB" AND

LEARNED ABOUT TITHING.

Pat: BRING ALL OF THE

TITHES INTO THE STORE HOUSE,

THAT THERE MAY FOOD IN MY

HOUSE.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY

KNOWLEDGE OF BIBLICAL

TITHING UNTIL PAT STARTED TO

TEACH ON IT FROM MALACHI.

Reporter: LYNN SHARED

WHAT SHE LEARNED WITH

STEVE.

IT REALLY KIND OF PUT THE

LIGHT ON IN MY HEAD AND

REALLY STARTED TO MAKE ME

THINK IN A DIFFERENT WAY.

Reporter: THE LIONDAS

HAD BEEN SPORADIC GIVERS,

BUT THEY BEGAN TITHING

SPECIFICALLY, AND JOINED THE

JO "THE 700 CLUB" AT $40.

THEY ARE NOW MEMBERS OF

CBN'S CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE, AND

STEVE SEES THE SUCCESS OF

HIS BUSINESS.

2008 WAS WHEN THE

FINANCIAL MARKETS STARTED TO

TURN SOUTH.

OUR BUSINESS REMAINED

STRONG.

2008 WAS AN EXCELLENT YEAR,

AND 2009 AGAIN, AS ECONOMIES

FALTERED, OUR BUSINESS

PROSPERED AND DID WELL.

I HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT THE

LORD REMAINED FAITHFUL TO

ME.

AND WE ARE TRYING TO REMAIN

VERY FAITHFUL TO GOD.

AND TO SEE HIM BLESS US BACK

WITH OUR BUSINESS AND

PERSONAL FINANCES BEING

STRONG AND SECURE, IT HAS

ALLEVIATED A LOT OF

CONCERN.

YOU CAN ALWAYS SAY IT'S THE

LORD, IT'S GOD.

WE FEEL THE MORE THAT WE

GIVE TO OTHERS, IT BLESSES

US.ç

AND WE FEEL SUCH A JOY WHEN

WE CANç BE A BLESSING TO

SOMEONE ELSE.

YOU'RE REALLY BLESSING

YOURSELF WHEN YOU GIVE.

Gordon: GOD WANTS TO

BLESS HIS PEOPLE, AND HE

WANTS TO GIVE THEM PEACE

ABOUT THEIR FINANCES, IN THE

SENSE THAT THEIR FINANCIAL

SECURITY IS IN HIM.

IF YOU START TRUSTING YOUR

OWN EFFORTS, OR WHAT KIND OF

PLANS YOU CAN PUT INTO PLACE

IN ORDER TO GET MONEY OR GET

OUT OF DEBT OR ALL OF THOSE

THINGS, IT'S GOOD TO CREATE

BUDGETS AND IT'S GOOD TO

HAVE THOSE PLANS, BUT YOU

NEED TO COMMIT THOSE PLANS

TO THE LORD.

AND ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO

DO THAT IS TO SAY, LORD, I

TRUST YOU WITH MY MONEY.

AND I TRUST YOUR WORD.

AND IF YOUR WORD SAYS TO

GIVE, THEN I WANT TO DO IT,

AND I WANT TO DO IT

CHEERFULLY.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO DO THAT,

CALL US.

1-888-777-1999.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM ISAIAH 26: "YOU

WILL KEEP HIM IN PERFECT

PEACE WHO'S MIND IS STAYED

ON YOU."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU
