Gordon: 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.

WELL, WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

MICHELLE BORKEZ IS

BEAUTIFUL, BUT FOR YEARS SHE

SAYS SHE FELT UGLY AND

FILTHY AND WANTED TO MASK

HER SHAME ANY WAY SHE

COULD.

Terry: SMIECIAL

MICHELLE SAYS SHE FELT LIKE

SHE HAD DIRT ALL OVER HER,

JUST BECAUSE OF A DECISION

SHE MADE WHEN SHE WAS 16

YEARS OLD.

TRULY A DAY OF SHAME, AND

IT WAS A DAY, FOR ME, THAT

OF COURSE YOU HAVE

TREMENDOUS REGRET LATER.

Reporter: WHEN MICHELLE

WALKED INTO THE ABORTION

CLINIC, SHE FELT LIKE SHE

DIDN'T HAVE A CHOICE.

SHE WAS 16, UNMARRIED, AND

DIDN'T WANT TO LET HER

FATHER DOWN.

I COULD JUST SEE HIS

FACE.

I MEAN, IT WAS JUST, LIKE, I

CAN'T EVEN DISAPPOINT HIM.

Reporter: LIKE MOST

GIRLS, MICHELLE GREW UP

SEEKING HER DAD'S LOVE AND

APPROVAL.

INSTEAD GETTING LOVE, SHE

BECAME THE TARGET OF HIS

ANGRY OUTBURSTS.

A BOY HAD COME OVER, AND

HE WAS JUST A FRIEND, BUT HE

HAD COME OVER, AND HE WAS

STANDING AT THE FRONT DOOR.

AND MY DAD CAME IN AND HE

WAS LIVID.

HE WOULD THROW ME AGAINST

THE WALL AND HE WAS OUT OF

CONTROL IN ANGER.

Reporter: WITHOUT HER

FATHER'S ATTENTION, MICHELLE

WELCOMED ANY ATTENTION SHE

COULD GET FROM BOYS.

WHEN SHE WAS 16, SHE WENT TO

A HIGH SCHOOL DANCE WHERE

SHE GOT DRUNK FOR THE FIRST

TIME.

LATER SHE WENT HOME WITH HER

DATE.

I WAS SICK.

VERY ILL.

I WENT AND LAID DOWN IN ONE

OF THE ROOMS THERE, WHICH I

HAVE NO MEMORY OF.

AND THAT'S WHEN HE CAME INTO

THE ROOM AND RAPED ME.

Reporter: MICHELLE

NEVER TOLD ANYONE ABOUT THE

RAPE.

SOON AFTER SHE STARTED

DATING ANOTHER GUY AND

BECAME PREGNANT BY HIM.

THAT WAS WHEN THE FEAR OF

HER FATHER AND THE SHAME SHE

WAS ALREADY LIVING WITH LED

HER TO GET AN ABORTION.

I CAN SAY IT WAS

TRAUMATIC.

BUT AT THE TIME IT

WAS, LIKE, THIS IS WHAT I'M

GOING TO DO.

AND I'M ANGRY AND I'M

BITTER, AND I'M REBELLIOUS.

Reporter: FOR THE NEXT

FOUR YEARS, MICHELLE

MEDICATED HERSELF WITH

DRINKING, PARTYING, AND

USING DRUGS.

DURING THIS TIME, HER

PARENTS BECAME CHRISTIANS.

THEY OFTEN PRAYED FOR HER

AND ALSO INVITED HER TO

CHURCH.

MY MOM SAID SHE WOULD

HEARD SERMON, AND SHE WOE

GO, THIS IS IT.

SHE IS GOING TO HEAR THAT

AND SHE IS GOING TO COME TO

KNOW CHRIST TODAY.

AND IT WAS JUST FALLING ON

DEAF EARS.

Reporter: MICHELLE

CONTINUED DOWN HER RECKLESS

PATH UNTIL ONE DAY SHE SAW

THE UGLINESS OF HER LIFE.

ONCE YOU'VE GONE THROUGH

DRINKING LIKE THAT AND

PARTYING LIKE THIS AND THEN

YOU'VE COME TO A STOP, AND

YOU REALIZE THIS IS MY LIFE,

THE UGLINESS, THE FILTTH

FILTH OF IT, IT FELT LIKE I

HAD DIRT ALL OVER ME.

Reporter: ONE SUNDAY

SHE WENT TO CHURCH WITH A

CHRISTIAN FEND.

WHILE SHE WAS THERE, A SONG

REALLY TOUCHED HER HEART.

THOSE WORDS, "I WANT TO

KNOW YOU," ALL I COULD THINK

OF IS, OKAY, I'M READY.

I'M READY TO KNOW YOU.

I'M FINALLY READY TO GIVE UP

MY WILL AND EXCHANGE IT FOR

YOUR WILL.

GOD SAID TO ME, IF YOU

CHOOSE TODAY TO FOLLOW ME, I

WILL GIVE YOU LIFE.

IF YOU STAY ON THIS PATH

THAT YOU'RE ON, I WIL IT

WILL BRING DESTRUCTION.

IT WILL BRING DEATH.

SO WHEN THEY SAID TO ME, DO

YOU WANT TO KNOW JESUS?

DO YOU WANT TO ACCEPT HIM IN

YOUR HEART, I SAID YES.

AND WHEN I SAID IT, IT WAS A

RADICAL CHANGE IN MY HEART.

WHEN THEY SAY, YOU'RE BLIND

AND NOW YOU SEE -- IT'S LIKE

MY WHOLE VISION SUDDENLY

OPENED UP.

Reporter: AFTERWARD,

SHE WENT HOME AND SPENT ONE

WEEK CRYING OUT TO GOD.

AND THEN SHE ASKED HIM TO

FORGIVE HER.

HE REVEALED THE DARK

PLACES OF MY HEART.

HE BEGAN TO OPEN UP MY EYES

TO THE SELFISHNESS I HAD.

I FELT LIKE THERE WERE SO

MANY PEOPLE I WANTED TO SAY

SORRY TO.

OUT OF EVERYTHING I HAD DONE

THAT I NEEDED TO ASK

FORGIVENESS FOR WAS THE

ABORTION.

IT WAS DEFINITELY THE THING

THAT I WAS CARRYING THE MOST

SHAME ABOUT.

I GAVE MY WHOLE LIFE TO

HIM.

I KNEW AT THAT POINT THAT I

HAD BEEN FORGIVEN OF ALL MY

SINS.

Reporter: MICHELLE GREW

STRONG IN HER FAITH AND

CHRISTIAN WALK.

SOON SHE MARRIED AND LATER

ON HAD FOUR KIDS.

SHE THOUGHT SHE HAD THE

PERFECT LIFE, BUT THEN 13

YEARS LATER HER HUSBAND

DIVORCED HER.

SHE TRIED TO MAKE SENSE OF

IT.

I REMEMBER GOING OUTSIDE

MY HOME AND SCREAMING AS

LOUD AS I COULD, WHY?

WHY?

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS

HAS HAPPENED TO ME.

WHY AM I HERE?

AND WHY AM I ALONE IN THIS

SITUATION?

Reporter: MICHELLE KNEW

SHE NEEDED TO GET HELP.

SO OVER THE NEXT THREE YEARS

SHE SOUGHT THE HELP OF A

COUNSELLOR.

THAT'S WHEN SHE REALIZED SHE

WAS STILL CARRYING AROUND

THE SHAME FROM THE RAPE AND

THE ABORTION SHE HAD AS A

TEEN.

AND IT WASN'T UNTIL I WAS

IN COUNSELLING AND I SHARED

THAT WITH MY MENTOR THAT HE

SAID TO ME, THAT'S A LIE.

THAT'S NOT TRUE.

HE SAID, LET'S PRAY.

I WANT YOU TO ASK JESUS TO

SHOW YOU.

Reporter: GOD SHOWED

MICHELLE A VISION THAT

TOTALLY TRANSFORMED HER

LIFE.

AND OVER THIS DIAMOND WAS

THIS GUSHING OF RIVERS OF

BLOOD, JUST FLOWING OVER

THIS DIAMOND.

AND YOU COULD SEE THE

BRILLIANCE OF THE DIAMOND.

ALL OF THE LIGHT WAS SHINING

THROUGH THAT BLOOD.

IN THAT MOMENT, THE LORD

SAID TO ME, THIS IS HOW I

SEE YOU.

I'M ABLE TO SEE YOU AS THIS

BEAUTIFUL, PURE, FLAWLESS

DIAMOND, WITH SO MUCH VALUE

AND SO MUCH BEAUTY.

AND I CAN SEE YOU LIKE THAT

SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE BLOOD

OF CHRIST.

AND, YOU KNOW, IT CHANGED

ME.

Reporter: MICHELLE SAYS

SHE BEGAN TO SEE HERSELF IN

A NEW WAY.

THE SHAME WAS REMOVED IN

A MOMENT.

IT CHANGED THE VALUE THAT I

HAD FOR MYSELF.

JUST TO REALIZE THIS

FAITHFULNESS AND THE FACT

THAT HE IS SO MUCH ABOUT

RESTORATION IS AN

OVERWHELMING THING FOR ME.

Reporter: TODAY

MICHELLE IS ENJOYING LIFE

WITH HER NEW HUSBAND.

SHE IS A SOUGHT-AFTER

SPEAKER AND AUTHOR WHO IS

PASSIONATE ABOUT TELLING

OTHERS THAT GOD CAN TRULY

MAKE ALL THINGS NEW.

THERE IS HOPE ON THE

OTHER SIDE.

IF YOU JUST KEEP PRESSING

THROUGH AND TRUSTING HIM AND

BELIEVING, HE WILL BRING YOU

OUT THE OTHER SIDE.

Gordon: THAT CAN HAPPEN

TO YOU.

JUST START IMAGINING THE

VISION THAT MICHELLE HAD.

THAT SAME VISION CAN COME TO

YOU.

HOW DOES JESUS SEE YOU?

HE SEES YOU JUST AS HE SEES

THE SHUAMITE IN THE SONG OF

SOLOMON.

COME AWAY WITH ME MY

BELOVED.

THE THE SHULAMITE DOES NOT

BELIEVE IT.

HE SAYS, I'VE BEEN IN THE

SUN TOO LONG, YOU CAN'T FIND

ME ATTRACTIVE.

AND HE SAYS, NO, COME AWAY

WITH ME, MY BELOVED.

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND HOW

JESUS REALLY THINKS ABOUT

YOU, YOU UNDERSTAND THE

GREAT MYSTERY OF THE

GOSPEL.

"FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD

THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY

BEGOTTEN SON."

JESUS GAVE UP HEAVEN FOR

YOU, AND HE CAME JUST FOR

YOU.

IF YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE TO

BELIEVE, HE STILL WOULD HAVE

COME, JUST FOR YOU.

HE LEAVES THE 99 TO GO FIND

THE ONE.

NOW, YOU MAY BE THINKING,

I'VE GONE TOO FAR.

TOO MANY BAD THINGS HAVE

HAPPENED TO ME.

I'VE DONE TOO MANY BAD

THINGS.

AND MAYBE LIKE MICHELLE, YOU

WERE ABUSED.

MAYBE LIKE MICHELLE, YOU

WENT THROUGH AN ABORTION.

BUT JESUS SEES YOU AS

BEAUTIFUL.

AND HE SEES YOU THROUGH HIS

EYES, OF WHAT HE CAN MAKE

YOU BE IF YOU JUST LET HIM.

THAT HE CAN COME TO YOU, AND

YOU CAN EXCHANGE ALL YOUR

THOUGHTS ABOUT YOURSELF FOR

HIS THOUGHTS.

YOU CAN EXCHANGE YOUR

UNRIGHTEOUSNESS FOR HIS

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

YOU CAN EXCHANGE YOUR

SADNESS, YOUR GRIEF FOR HIS

JOY.

BECAUSE THAT'S HIS PROMISE.

RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND

JOY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AND TO ACCESS THAT, ALL YOU

HAVE TO DO IS THE SAME THING

MICHELLE DID.

HERE SHE WAS, AND SHE SAID,

NOT MY WAY ANYMORE.

LET YOUR WAY BE DONE.

LET YOUR WILL BE DONE IN MY

LIFE.

I DIVI U GIVE UP TRYING TO

LIVE IT ON MY OWN, ON MY OWN

WAY.

AND THEN WHAT DID SHE DO?

SHE SPENT A WEEK IN PRAYER,

CRYING OUT.

AND THEN SHE HAD SOMEONE

COME SAYING, YOU NEED TO

UNDERSTAND HOW GOD VIEWS

YOU.

AND THAT'S WHEN SHE GOT THE

VISION.

AND THAT'S WHEN SHE GOT THE

CHANGE.

IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU

DO THE SAME THING, IF YOU

ASK THE SAME WAY.

AND HERE IS THE PRAYER FOR

YOU: JESUS, IF THIS IS REAL,

IF YOU REALLY ARE CALLING TO

ME, COME AWAY WITH ME.

IF YOU REALLY ARE SAYING

THAT TO ME, THEN COULD YOU

SHOW ME?

COULD YOU SHOW UP FOR ME?

AND THE BIBLE PROMISES THAT

WHEN YOU SEEK HIM WITH ALL

OF YOUR HEART, YOU'LL FIND

HIM.

YOU CAN HAVE A DIRECT

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

YOU CAN HAVE THE REALIZATION

OF HIS LOVE IN YOUR HEART.

IT'S NOT SOME FAROFF THING.

FAR OFF THING.

HE WANTS TO COME TO YOU.

IF YOU WANT THAT, ALL YOU

HAVE TO DO IS PICK UP THE

PHONE AND CALL US.

1-888-777-1999.

JUST SAY, I NEED A NEW

BEGINNING.

I NEED TO KNOW IF JESUS IS

REAL.

I NEED TO KNOW IF HE CAN

COME FOR ME.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

WE'RE NOT HERE TO JUDGE

YOU.

WE'RE NOT HERE TO CONDEMN

YOU.

WE'RE HERE TO TELL YOU GOD

LOVES YOU AND HE IS ABLE TO

TRANSFORM YOU FROM YOUR

INNERMOST BEING IF YOU JUST

LET HIM.

CALL US, 1-888-777-1999.

WELL, COMING UP, A YOUNG

CHRISTIAN IS HOOKED ON

DRUGS, AND HER MOM AND DAD

ARE OBLIVIOUS.

WATCH WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THEY

FIND OUT.

THAT'S UP NEXT.

Terry: WHEN WHITNEY

LONG STARTED DOING DRUGS,

SHE DIDN'T DO IT BECAUSE SHE

WANTED TO GET HIGH.

SHE DID IT BECAUSE SHE

WANTED TO EASE HER PAIN.

SOON DRUGS BECAME HER RELIEF

UNTIL HER PARENTS PAID A

VISIT TO HER DORM ROOM.

I WAS RAISED IN A

CHRISTIAN HOME WHERE I WENT

TO CHURCH EVERY SUNDAY AND

EVERY WEDNESDAY, BUT WHEN I

WAS 13 YEARS OLD, I WAS

BABY-SITTING.

AND A FRIEND OF MINE ASKED

ME IF HE COULD COME OVER AND

SEE ME AND HANG OUT.

AND SO I SAID YES.

THIS GUY CAME OVER, AND HE

ENDED UP RAPING ME WHEN I

WAS 13 YEARS OLD.

I FELT SUCH SHAME AND

SUCH -- JUST DISGUST.

AND I FELT LIKE EVERYTHING

HAD BEEN STRIPPED FROM ME.

I DIDN'T THINK THAT THE LORD

COULD POSSIBLY WANT ME.

IT JUST WENT DOWNHILL.

I STARTED DOING DRUGS EVERY

CHANCE I COULD GET TO JUST

NUMB THE FEELING OF PAIN

THAT I HAD FROM AGES 14 TO

19.

IT WAS EXTREMELY ADDICTED TO

DOING DRUGS AND DRINKING.

AND I WOULD GIVE MYSELF TO

GUYS CONTINUOUSLY, JUST

LOOKING FOR SOME TYPE OF

FULFILLMENT, SOME TYPE OF

LOVE THAT I WAS SEARCHING

FOR.

SO I ENDED UP EXTREMELY

ADDICTED TO COCAINE AND

HEROIN, AND WAS SHOOTING UP

EVERY DAY, MULTIPLE TIMES A

DAY.

MY PARENTS HAD ENROLLED ME

IN COLLEGE, AND IT WASN'T MY

CHOICE, BUT THEY WERE LIKE,

YOU REALLY NEED TO GO.

I DON'T KNOW WHY THEY HAD NO

CLUE WHAT WAS GOING ON.

I GUESS THEY WERE JUST

LIVING IN THEIR OWN LITTLE

WORLD, LIA THEIR OWN LITTLE

BUBBLE, THAT WHITNEY IS

OKAY.

EVERY BIT OF MONEY MY

PARENTS WOULD SEND ME, I

WOULD SPEND IT ON DRUGS.

I SPENT $2800 IN TWO DAYS ON

HEROIN AND COCAINE.

TWO WEEKS LATER, MY DAD CAME

TO SEE ME.

WHEN HE SAW ME, MY DAD

IMMEDIATELY KNEW.

HE SHOOK ME AND SAID, YOU

LOOK LIKE A JUNKY.

YOU ARE A JUNKY.

AND WE BROKE DOWN CRYING,

AND HE TOOK ME HOME.

AND HE SAID, YOU NEED TO GO

TO REHAB.

I WAS THERE FOR FIVE DAYS,

AND ALL THEY DID WAS DETOX

MY SYSTEM AND PUT ME BACK

OUT, AND SAY, COME TO THESE

12-STEP MEETINGS THAT ARE

SUPPOSED TO HELP YOU.

THE DAY I GOT OUT OF REHAB,

I GOT HIGH.

MY MOM INVITED ME TO GO TO A

CONFERENCE WHEN I HAD GOTTEN

OUT OF THE REHAB.

SHE SAID, LET'S GO AND SPEND

SOME TIME TOGETHER.

I WENT AND BOUGHT ABOUT $500

WORTH OF DRUGS FROM MONEY I

HAD STOLEN, AND TOOK IT ON

THE AIRPORT WITH ME AND GOT

HIGH ON THE WAY THERE, AND

SHOT UP ONCE I WAS THERE.

AND AT THIS CONFERENCE.

MY MOM AND HER FRIENDS --

THEY JUST HOOKED UP AGAIN,

AND WHEN KAREN MET ME, SHE

TOLD MY MOM, SHE SAID, I

REALLY THINK YOUR DAUGHTER

IS THE REASON THAT WE WERE

HERE THIS WEEK.

SO THROUGHOUT THE WEEK THEY

STARTED PRAYING FOR ME.

I DIDN'T KNOW ALL OF THIS

UNTIL AFTERWARDS, BECAUSE

THEY WERE MINISTERING TO ME

THROUGH THEIR PRAYERS.

I THINK IT WAS A

WEDNESDAY -- YEAH, IT WAS A

WEDNESDAY.

AND MY MOM AND I HAD GOTTEN

INTO A HUGE FIGHT.

AND I FELL ASLEEP ON THE

COUCH IN THAT HOTEL ROOM,

AND MY MOM JUST BEGAN

PRAYING THAT NIGHT.

SHE STAYED UP UNTIL 4:00 IN

THE MORNING, PRAYING AND

INTERCEDING OVER ME.

AND THE NEXT MORNING I WOKE

UP, AND I WAS COMPLETELY

DELIVERED AND SET FREE.

AND I HAD NO CRAVINGS FOR

THE DRUGS ANYMORE.

I DIDN'T GO THROUGH ONE

WITHDRAWAL.

THE LORD DELIVERED ME AND

THEN HE TOOK MY HAND AND

JUST JERKED ME INTO A DEEP

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

I JUST FELT LIKE I HAD TO

HAVE BEEN SUBMERGED.

IF I HADN'T HAVE BEEN

SUBMERGED IN THAT

DELIVERANCE AND IN THAT

RELATIONSHIP, I PROBABLY

WOULD HAVE GONE BACK TO THE

DRUGS.

IT STARTED THE DEEP PROCESS

OF HEALING.

I JUST GO GOT MARRIED THIS

YEAR, ON MARCH 13th, TO A

MAN WHO WAS A VIRGIN, SO

THAT WAS JUST A HUGE

TESTIMONY IN ITSELF, ABOUT

THE RESTORATION THAT GOD

BRINGS.

AND IT WAS A HUGE DEAL TO

ME, JUST BECAUSE OF MY

PAST.

IT SPOKE VOLUMES TO ME OF

GOD'S LOVE AND HOW HE

DOESN'T HOLD US -- HE

DOESN'T HOLD US CAPTIVE TO

THE PAST.

AND HE DOESN'T REMEMBER OUR

SINS.

THAT HE FORGIVES US.

IF YOU ARE DEALING WITH

SHAME AND PAIN FROM THE

ADDICTIONS AND THE LOSS OF A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, OR

NEVER HAVING A RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD, I WOULD SAY TO YOU

THAT THERE IS HOPE AND THAT

THERE IS FREEDOM, AND TO

NEVER BELIEVE THE LIFE THE

LIE OF THE ENEMY THAT YOUR

LIFE IS WITHOUT PURPOSE.

BECAUSE GOD HAD A DESTINY

WHEN HE CREATED EVERY ONE OF

US.

Terry: THERE IS A

DESTINY AND A PURPOSE FOR

EVERY ONE OF US.

SO OFTEN IT IS THE LIES OF

THE ENEMY THAT KEEP US FROM

GRABBING HOLD OF OUR IN TERT

INHERITANCE, AND KEEPS US

FROM GETTING THE

RELATIONSHIP WE NEED.

TODAY, THIS IS "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE" PROGRAM, AND WE

WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.

WE HAVE A NUMBER OF YOU HAVE

SENT IN PRAYER REQUESTS.

GORDON, THE FIRST ONE IS

FROM BECKY.

JESSICA, ARE YOU GOING TO

SHARE THAT WITH US?

YES.

BECKY WRITES, "I WAS

SEXUALLY ABUSED BY MY

BROTHER AND LATER BY A

FRIEND'S BROTHER.

WHEN I GOT SAVED, I WAS

HEALED, BUT I HAVE NEVER

TOLD ANYONE ABOUT THE ABUSE,

AND I CAN'T SEEM TO SETTLE

DOWN IN ANY RELATIONSHIP.

PLEASE PRAY FOR ME.

I NEED GOD TO SHOW ME HOW TO

MOVE FORWARD."

LESLIE SAYS, "WHEN I WAS A

CHILD, MY MOM WAS ALWAYS ON

ME ABOUT MY WEIGHT.

SHE USED TO PUT ME ON A

SCALE AND YELL AT ME.

AND NOW I'M MARRIED AND MY

HUSBAND YELLS AT ME, TOO,

FOR GAINING WEIGHT.

I KNOW THE BIBLE SAYS I'M

BEAUTIFUL, BUT ALL I SEE IS

SHAME AND UGLINESS.

PLEASE PRAY GOD WOULD HELP

ME SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY."

MELISSA WRITES IN, "MY

DOCTOR HAS DIAGNOSED ME WITH

TOXIC SHAME.

NOW I CAN'T SEEM TO FUNCTION

EVEN IN THE MOST BASIC

SOCIAL SETTINGS -- I JUST

PANIC AND LEAVE.

PLEASE PRAY FOR MY FREEDOM

FROM THIS DIAGNOSIS."

Gordon: YOU LOOK AT

THESE PRAYER REQUESTS, AND

YOU GO, LORD GOD, HAVE MERCY

ON US.

SHOW US HOW YOU VIEW US.

SO WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.

AND IF YOU'RE DEALING WITH

SHAME ISSUES, IF YOU'RE

DEALING WITH REJECTION, IF

YOU THINK THAT YOU'VE BEEN

ABUSED AND AS A RESULT THERE

IS NO HOPE FOR YOU, THERE IS

NO FUTURE FOR YOU, JESUS HAS

A PLAN FOR YOU.

AND HE HAS A HOPE AND A

FUTURE FOR YOU.

AND INSTEAD OF SHAME, HE CAN

GIVE YOU BOLDNESS.

HE CAN GIVE YOU STRENGTH.

HE CAN GIVE YOU COURAGE.

HE CAN GIVE YOU A NEW YOU.

IF YOU JUST LET HIM.

IF YOU JUST LET HIM

TRANSFORM YOU.

SO TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

PRAY.

JESSICA IS GOING TO AGREE.

AND LET'S JUST TAKE THESE

HEART ISSUES, THESE SPIRIT

ISSUES, TO THE ONE WHO MADE

YOUR HEART, WHO MADE YOUR

SPIRIT, WHO BREATHED ON YOU

AND GAVE YOU LIFE.

AND LET HIM TRANSFORM YOU.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE COME TOGETHER, AND

WE COME INTO AGREEMENT OVER

MELISSA.

AND WE SPEAK OVER HER

BOLDNESS.

AND WE SPEAK OVER HER THAT

THIS REPORT IS CANCELLED NOW

IN JESUS' NAME.

NO MORE SHAME, FOR THERE IS

NO SHAME IN YOU.

YOU GIVE US BEAUTY FOR

ASHES.

YOU RESTORE OUR SOUL.

YOU LEAD US IN PATHS OF

RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR YOUR

NAMESAKE, AND YOU DO IT ALL

AS A FREE GIFT.

SO BLESS HER NOW.

WE CANCEL THIS OVER HER.

AND WE SPEAK INTO HER THE

BOLDNESS THAT COMES FROM THE

KNOWLEDGE OF YOU.

FOR THOSE THAT KNOW YOU

SHALL DO EXPLOITS.

EXPLOITS.

NOW FOR THE ONE WHO HAS BEEN

SHAMED BY HER MOTHER AND

CONTINUES TO BE SHAMED BY

HER HUSBAND, LET THE PEACE

OF GOD GUARD HER HEART AND

MIND.

NO MORE EMOTIONAL ABUSE.

WE JUST CANCEL IT OVER HER

NOW.

AND SPEAK OVER HER THE

ACCEPTANCE OF THE BELOVED.

THAT YOUR ARMS ARE WIDE OPEN

FOR HER.

YOU RECEIVE HER OPENLY.

YOU WANT TO HAVE FELLOWSHIP

WITH HER.

YOU WANT TO COMMUNE WITH

HER.

BE WITH HER NOW, LORD.

STRENGTHEN HER INNERMOST

BEING.

AND NOW, LORD, FOR THE ONE

WHO WAS ABUSED, FIRST BY

FAMILY AND THEN BY A

FRIEND'S BROTHER, LORD,

YOU'RE ABLE TO PUT HER INTO

A FAMILY.

THAT'S YOUR PROMISE, THAT

YOU SET THE LONELY INTO

FAMILIES.

AND SO WE COME AGAINST THE

LONELINESS CAUSED BY THIS

SECRET.

WE BREAK IT OVER HER.

AND WE SPEAK INTO HER

INNERMOST BEING, BE HEALED

AND BE RESTORED AND BE SET

FREE FROM THIS MEMORY.

LET IT NO LONGER CAUSE YOU

SHAME.

AND LET THERE BE JOY.

TURN HER MOURNING INTO

DANCING AGAIN, LORD.

AND NOW FOR THOSE WHO NEED

YOU, WE JUST ASK THAT YOUR

PRESENCE WOULD SURROUND

THEM, BE ABOVE THEM, BE

BELOW THEM, BE BEFORE THEM,

BE BEHIND THEM, BE IN THEM

NOW.

AND LET YOUR PEACE BE

GUARD.

WATCH OVER THEM.

AND SET YOUR ANGELS TO CAMP

ALL AROUND THEM.

AND ENCOURAGE THEM,

STRENGTHEN THEM, FOR WE ASK

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE'RE

HERE FOR YOU.

AND WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU

BECAUSE IT'S OUR HONOR AND

OUR PRIVILEGE TO DO THAT.

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

1-888-777-1999.

IF YOU WANT TO GET FREE FROM

THIS KIND OF THING, I

BELIEVE IN CONFESSION, THAT

THE SHAME AND THE GUILT,

THEY HIDE IN THE DARK.

BUT WHEN YOU GET IT OUT AND

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LEAVE A

NAME OR NUMBER, BUT YOU JUST

WANT TO GET IT OUT AND SAY,

CAN JESUS TAKE CARE OF

THIS?

THE ANSWER IS YES.

HE WANTS TO SET YOU FREE.

FOR WHO THE SON SETS FREE IS

FREE INDEED.

SO CALL US.

1-888-777-1999.

COMING UP, A HUMAN

TRAFFICKING VICTIM ESCAPES

THE STREETS AND FINDS A HOME

WITH A BIG PROBLEM.

HER STORY IS UP NEXT.

Terry: IN MUMBAI,

INDIA, NEARLY 100,000 GIRLS

ARE TRAPPED INSIDE

BROTHELS.

SOME LUCKY ONES ARE ABLE TO

MAKE IT TO SAFE HOUSES,

WHERE CBN IS HELPING THEM

GET WHAT THEY NEED.

SHANU MOVES IN MUMBAI,

INDIA.

WHEN SHE WAS EIGHT YEARS

OLD, SHE WAS FORCED INTO

PROSTITUTION.

THEY ROBBED ME OF MY

DIGNITY.

I FELT LIKE MY HEART TURNED

TO STONE.

I WAS HELPLESS.

Terry: THEN WHEN SHANU

WAS 16 YEARS OLD, AN

ORGANIZATION CALLED BOMBAY

TEN CHALLENG TEEN CHALLENGE

RESCUED HER FROM THE

STREETS.

THEY PROVIDED HER WITH A

SAFE PLACE TO STAY.

I LEARNED ABOUT JESUS

HERE.

HE RENEWED MY LIFE.

Terry: BUT THIS SAFE

HOUSE HAD A MAJOR PROBLEM, A

SEVERE WATER SHORTAGE.

WE WOULD FILL BUCKETS

WITH WATER AND STORE THEM IN

OUR ROOM.

BUT SOMETIMES THE WATER

TRUCK WOULD NOT COME.

IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT.

Terry: WITHOUT ENOUGH

WATER, THE HOME WOULD BE

FORCED TO SHUT DOWN.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING" CAME

IN AND DUG THREE WELLS.

NOW THERE IS ENOUGH WATER

FOR THE 275 CHILDREN WHO

LIVE HERE.

Reporter: NOW WE GET

PLENTY OF WATER FROM THE

WELLS.

WE DON'T HAVE TO CARRY OUR

BUCKETS ANYMORE.

I CAN BRING WATER TO MY ROOM

ANY TIME.

I'M SO HAPPY FOR THAT.

THANK YOU, "OPERATION

BLESSING."

WHEN WE WERE IN NEED, YOU

PEOPLE CAME AND HELPED US.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: CLEAN DRINKING

WATER, IT SOUNDS SO SIMPLE.

BUT WITHOUT IT, WE CANNOT

LIVE.

YOU ALLOWED US TO BRING IT

RIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE

NEED OF THESE YOUNG GIRLS,

WHO ARE FINDING HEALING AND

WHOLENESS AND A FUTURE.

THAT WAS A TESTIMONY OF

GOD'S LOVE TO THEM.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," THAT'S THE KIND OF

THING YOU MAKE POSSIBLE.

SO JOIN TODAY.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH.

YOU CAN DO THAT BY CALLING

1-888-777-1999.

GORDON?

Gordon: WE LEAVE YOU

WITH THESE WORDS FROM PSALM

103: "AS FAR AS THE EAST IS
