TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

PRAYING AT PUBLIC MEETINGS.

HOW A RULING TODAY FROM THE

SUPREME COURT SUPPORTS THOSE

WANTING TO PRAY.

PLUS, AS THE FIGHT TO

FREE GIRLS KIDNAPPED IN

NIGERIA INTENSIFIES, CBN

NEWS TAKES A LOOK AT THEIR

CAPTORS, THE ISLAMIC GROUP,

BOKO HARAM.

Mark: AND MEET THE MAN

WHO IS RESTARTING THE SPOKAN

REVIVAL.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT

ON "NEWSWATCH."

PRAYER AT PUBLIC MEETINGS

CAN CONTINUE ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

GOODEVENING, I'M MARK

MARTIN.

Wendy: AND I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

THE SUPREME COURT TODAY

UPHELD THE LONG-STANDING

DECISION IN A SPLIT

DECISION.

ALTHOUGH SUPPORTERS OF THE

PUBLIC PRAYERS ARE CLAIMING

A VICTORY, OPPONENTS SAY THE

FIGHT IS FAR FROM OVER.

JOHN JESSUP HAS DETAILS IN

TONIGHT'S TOP STORY.

Reporter: THE HIGH

COURT RULING CENTERS ON AN

ACTION THAT DATES BACK TO

OUR FOUNDING, WHEN THE FIRST

CONTINENTAL CONGRESS BEGAN

WITH CHRISTIAN PRAYERS.

240 YEARS, AMERICA IS MUCH

MORE RELIGIOUSLY DIVERSE

THAN BACK THEN.

PART OF THE REGION, AN

ATHEIST AND JEW CHALLENGED

PRAYERS AT PUBLIC MEETINGS

IN THE TOWN OF GREECE, NEW

YORK.

THEY CLAIMED THE PRAYERS

WERE MOSTLY CHRISTIAN, MADE

THEM UNCOMFORTABLE, AND

AMOUNTED TO COERCION.

BUST JUSTICE KENNEDY WARNED

AGAINST THE COURTS BECOMING

SENSORS OF RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS, WRITING "GOVERNMENT

IS PROHIBITED FROM

ENCOURAGING FRAIR PRAYERS

FROM A CODE OF MORAL

BEHAVIOUR."

IMPLICATIONS FOR THE RULING

EXTEND ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

THIS IS PICTURESQUE CAROL

COUNTY, WITH ITS FARM HOUSES

AND ROLLING HILLS.

IT IS A PEACEFUL PLACE ON

THE OUTSKIRTS OF BALTIMORE.

BUT AT THE INTERSECTION OF

FAITH AND POLITICS, THERE IS

A STORM BREWING, AND IT IS

DRAWING NATIONAL ATTENTION.

A GROUP OF RESIDENTS SUED

THE COUNTY BECAUSE THE

COMMISSIONER'S OPENING

PRAYERS WERE ONLY

CHRISTIAN.

A FEDERAL JUDGE AGREED,

TEMPORARILY BARRING THE

BOARD FROM PRAYING IN JESUS'

NAME.

THAT DIDN'T SIT WELL WITH

ONE OF THE COMMISSIONERS.

I THINK THAT IS AN

INFRINGEMENT OF MY FIRST

AMEND THE RIGHTS OF FREE

SPEECH AND FREE RELIGION,

AND I THINK IT IS A WRONG

RULING.

BUT OUT OF RESPECT FOR MY

COLLEAGUES, I'M WILLING TO

GO TO JAIL OVER IT.

JOHN 16: 24: SAYS "HAVE

YOU ASKED NOTHING IN MY

NAME.

ASK AND IT WILL BE DONE."

THAT'S JESUS SPEAKING.

THAT'S HOW I PRAY.

Reporter: WHILE THEY

REMAIN TIGHT-LIPPED ABOUT

THE ISSUE, PEOPLE IN AND

AROUND THE COUNTY HAD STRONG

OPINIONS.

YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT

OPENING UP THE COMMISSION

HEARINGS WITH PRAYER?

I AGREE 100%.

AND WHAT ABOUT OPENING

THE PRAYER USING THE NAME OF

JESUS?

NIGERIA GOVERNMENT SAYS

IT IS RESPONDING TO A

WORLDWIDE DEMAND TO FREE 276

NIGERIAN GIRLS.

THE GIRLS WERE KIDNAPPED

NEARLY THREE WEEKS AGO AS A

HUGE TRAFFICKING OPERATION.

BOKO HARAM HAS CLAIMED

RESPONSIBILITY, BUT AS JOHN

WAGGI EXPLAINS, DECIDING HOW

TO COMBAT THEM IS A

CHALLENGE.

Reporter: BOKO HARAM

SAYS IT ABDUCTED THE GIRLS

FROM THEIR SCHOOL IN

NORTHERN NIGERIA, AND THE

LEADERS HAVE THREATENED TO

SELL THEM.

IT IS THE COUNTRY'S

PRESIDENT THAT IS NOW

FEELING THE HEAT FOR THE

LACK OF PROGRESS IN FREEING

THE GIRLS.

UP TO THIS POINT I AM

TALKING, NOTHING HAS BEEN

DONE.

NO SINGLE MILITARY SECURITY

HAS GONE TO LOOK FOR THESE

GIRLS, AS I AM TALKING NOW.

Reporter: A GROWING

GLOBAL CHORUS IS DEMANDING A

MORE INTENSIVE EFFORT TO

HELP THE GIRLS, STARTING

WITH NIGERIA'S PRESIDENT,

GOODLUCK, JONATHAN.

WE'LL GET THEM OUT.

Reporter: THE

GOVERNMENT HAS FORMED A

PRESIDENTIAL COMMISSION, BUT

PROTESTORS SAY JONATHAN IS

DRAGGING HIS FEET.

TODAY WE'RE ON THE 19th

DAY THAT THESE GIRLS HAVE

BEEN GONE.

AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

OF NIGERIA HAS NOT PROVIDED

ANY INFORMATION THAT SHOWS

ANY CO CONCISE EFFORT IN

THE OPERATION.

Reporter: IN THE U.S.,

PROTESTORS GATHERED FROM

WASHINGTON, D.C. WASHINGTON,

D.C. TO TEXAS TO WISCONSIN

IN ORDER TO RAISE AWARENESS

OF THE GIRLS' PLIGHT.

IT IS LITERALLY

TRAFFICKING.

$12?

WE WASTE THAT DOING NOTHING

IN A DAY IN THE UNITED

STATES.

AND THESE GIRLS, THAT'S ALL

THEY WERE WORTH TO THIS

EXCHANGE.

Reporter: BOKO HARAM

HAS BEEN CONDUCTING A HOLY

WAR FOR YEARS AGAINST

NIGERIA.

THEY'VE USED KIDNAPPING,

MURDER, AND CHURCH BOMBINGS

IN THEIR QUEST TO ESTABLISH

SHARI'A LAW IN A COUNTRY

WITH A LARGE CHRISTIAN

POPULATION.

GEORGE THOMAS FOUND OUT

FIRSTHAND ABOUT THE FEAR THE

GROUP IN STILLS IN THE

PEOPLE THERE.

I PREFER NOT TO TALK

ABOUT BOKO HARAM.

THEY MAKE ME VERY

UNCOMFORTABLE.

George: IS THAT BECAUSE

YOU'RE AFRAID?

OF COURSE EVERYBODY IS

AFRAID.

WE ARE ALL LIVING IN FEAR.

Reporter: THEY SAY

THEIR PRESIDENT IS MORE

CONCERNED ABOUT HOSTING A

WORLD ECONOMIC CONFERENCE

THAN THE GIRLS.

ECONOMY OF WHAT?

THEY SHOULD BRING THE GIRLS

BACK.

IT IS THEN THEY HAVE WILL

THE REST OF MIND, AND THEY

WILL SUPPORT THEGOVERNMENT

IN ANYTHING THEY DO.

Reporter: BUT JONATHAN

HAS HIS OWN MESSAGE FOR

PRESIDENT OBAMA.

I A I AM LOOKING FOR

THEM PHYSICALLY.

Reporter: JOHN WAGGI,

CBN NEWS.

Mark: AND SENIOR

INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENT

GEORGE THOMAS JOINS US NOW

WITH MORE.

HE HAS BEEN TO NIGERIA

SEVERAL TIMES.

GEORGE, THE GROUP THAT IS

HOLDING THE GIRLS HAS

THREATENED TO SELL THEM.

WHAT'S THE LATEST?

George: THE LEADER OF

THE GROUP HAS JUST RELEASED

A VIDEO.

IT HAS BEEN OBTAINED BY THE

PRESIDENT.

HE SAYS, "I HAVE ABDUCTED

YOUR GIRLS.

I WILL SELL THEM IN THE

MARKET.

THERE IS A MARKET FOR

SELLING HUMANS.

I SHOULD SELL THEM.

I AM GOING TO SELL THESE

GIRLS."

THIS IS THE CONCERN, IF

THEY'RE STILL IN NIGERIA AT

THE VERY PRESENT MOMENT.

LOOK, THERE IS A MARKET,

WHETHER IT IS IN NEIGHBORING

CHAD OR THE IVORY COAST.

CLEARLY THIS IS A VERY, VERY

BIG CONCERN NOT JUST FOR THE

FAMILIES, BUT FOR THE

NIGERIA GOVERNMENT.

Mark: BOKO HARAM HAS

BEEN TERRORIZING NIGERIA FOR

YEARS.

WHAT IS THEIR GOAL?

George: TO LOOK AT A

MAP OF NIGERIA, IT IS EVENLY

DIVIDED.

THE SOUTH IS PREDOMINANTLY

CHRISTIAN.

AND THE NORTH IS

PREDOMINANTLY MUSLIM.

THEY HAVE, FOR SEVERAL

YEARS, IN E ESSENCE,

LAUNCHED AN ISLAMIC

INSURGENCY TO TAKE THE

ENTIRE COUNTRY FOR ISLAM.

Mark: AND THEY'VE ALSO

ATTACKED SCHOOLS, CORRECT?

George: YEAH.

THE AUDIENCE NEEDS TO KNOW

THAT THE WORD "BOKO HARAM"

IS THE HOUSE OF LANGUAGE.

IT TRANSLATES THAT WESTERN

EDUCATION IS EVIL, IT IS A

SIN.

THEY BELIEVE IN THE SCHOOLS,

IN THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IN

NIGERIA, THAT ISLAMIC

SHARI'A LAW MUST BE THE BASE

OF ALL EDUCATION.

THEY FEEL THAT WESTERN

EDUCATION, SCIENCE, MATH,

BIOLOGY, IS A SIN.

AND THEY THINK TEACHING

SHARI'A SHOULD BE THE

EDUCATION IN ALL OF

NIGERIA.

Mark: THIS CRIME WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT IS SO

DISTURBING.

HOW BIG OF A PROBLEM IS THE

KIDNAPPING OF GIRLS IN

MUSLIM-DOMINATED GIRLS.

George: WORKING HERE

FOR 23 YEARS, WE HAVE DONE

SO MANY STORIES.

IT IS PREVALENT IN THEIR

SOCIETIES.

BECAUSE THEY SEE THE MARK OF

A GIRL AS SECOND AND

THIRD-CLASS CITIZENS.

I WAS IN EGYPT, WE DID A

STORY ABOUT CHRISTIAN GIRLS

WHWHO ARE ROUTINELY

KIDNAPPED, AND THEY'RE

FORCED TO CONVERT TO

MUSLIM.

THEY CANNOT KEEP HER AS A

CHRISTIAN.

SHE HAS NO RENOUNCE HER

FAITH, BECOME A MUSLIM, AND

THEN SHE IS USED FOR ALL

KINDS OF ACTS.

THIS IS A VERY BIG PROBLEM,

NOT JUST IN NIGERIA, BUT

ACROSS THE NUTRITION

COMMUNITY.

THIS IS A HUGE THING, 200

SOMETHING GIRLS THAT THE

COUNTRY IS LOOKING FOR.

THERE IS SO MUCH PRESSURE ON

THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT TO

RESCUE THESE GIRLS, AND NOT

ONLY JUST RESCUE THEM, BUT

BRING THEM BACK HOME TO

THEIR FAMILIES ALIVE.

Mark: GEORGE THOMAS,

OUR SENIOR INTERNATIONAL

CORRESPONDENT, THANK YOU,

GEORGE.

Wendy: UKRAINE SEEMS TO

BE INCHING CLOSER TO A CIVIL

WAR.

THAT AS VIOLENT

DEMONSTRATIONS CONTINUE

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

CAITLIN BURKE REPORTS.

[YELLING]

Reporter: UKRAINE'S

FRAGILE GOVERNMENT IS LOSING

CONTROL OF CITY AFTER CITY.

[YELLING]

Reporter: FOR THE FIRST

TIME SINCE THE CRISIS

STARTED LAST YEAR, THE

COUNTRY'S THIRD LARGEST CITY

OF ODESSA SAW MASS

DEMONSTRATIONS, BOTH FOR AND

AGAINST RUSSIAN

INTERFERENCE.

OVER THE WEEKEND,

PRO-RUSSIAN ACTIVISTS

STORMED THE POLICE

HEADQUARTERS, FREEING SOME

70 PRISONERS.

THE MEN WALKED OUT OF THEIR

CELLS TO A HERO'S WELCOME,

AND PEOPLE CHANTING "ODESSA

IS A RUSSIAN CITY."

THERE IS NO UNITED

UKRAINE ANYMORE AFTER WHAT

HAPPENED HERE.

I THINK AT THIS POINT,

THE WHOLE COUNTRY IS TRYING

TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENED,

HOW TO PULL TOGETHER, AND

HOW TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE

WHO ARE TRYING TO DIVIDE THE

COUNTRY WILL NOT BE

SUCCESSFUL.

Reporter: IN WASHINGTON

AND IN WESTERN CAPITALS,

GROWING FEARS THAT UKRAINE

IS INCHING CLOSER TO

POTENTIAL WAR.

SOME ARE CALLING ON THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO SHOW

MORE INTERNATIONAL

LEADERSHIP ON THE CRISIS.

THE WHOLE WORLD LOOKS TO

THE UNITED STATES.

WHETHER IT IS IN AFRICA, THE

UKRAINE, OR ASIA, THERE IS

NO SUBSTITUTE FOR THE UNITED

STATES.

AND WE -- MY BRIEF IS WE

NEED TOBE ACTIVE AND

ENGAGED.

Reporter: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Mark: ANOTHER ROUND OF

IRANIAN NUCLEAR TALKS KICKED

OFF TODAY IN NEW YORK.

IRAN AND SIX WORLD POWERS

ARE HOPING TO AGREE ON A

PLAN THAT FURTHER LIMITS

TEHRAN'S OPPORTUNITY TO

PRODUCE NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

LAST NOVEMBER IRAN AGREED TO

STOP NUCLEAR PROCESS 20%.

THAT IN EXCHANGE FOR THE

EASE OF SOME WESTERN

SANCTIONS.

Wendy: COMING UP, HOW

ONE ITALIAN TOWN SETS A

STAGE FOR THE JEWISH

HOMELAND.

Wendy: WE OFTEN HEAR

PALESTINIANS AND THEIR

SUPPORTERS REFER TO THE

SO-CALLED WEST BANK AND HALF

OF JERUSALEMAS OCCUPIED

TERRITORIES.

THEY SAY ISRAELDOESN'T HAVE

A RIGHT TOLAND.

Mark:BUT HISTORY TELLS

A DIFFERENT STORY.

FROM ONE SMALL TOWN IN

ITALY, CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS

US THAT REPORT, FROM SAN

RIMO, ITALY.

Reporter: FORMER

ISRAELI PRESIDENT SAID THIS

PICTURESQUE TOWN ON THE

MEDITERRANEAN PLAYED A

CRUCIAL ROLE IN ISRAEL'S

MODERN HISTORY.

HE SAID IT IS NOT AN

EXAGGERATION TO SAY THAT THE

JEWISH STATE WAS BORN IN SAN

RIMO.

Reporter: FOLLOWING THE

DEFEAT OF THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE

IN WORLD WAR I, LEADERS OF

THE ALLY PORE POWERS MET IN

SAN RIMO.

THEIR GOAL: A NEW MIDDLE

EAST.

THE JEWISH PEOPLE RECEIVED

BACK THEIRANCIENT

HOMELAND.

WHAT HAPPENED HERE IN SAN

RIMOIN 1920 TRANSFORMED THE

MIDDLE EAST, AND FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN NEARLY 2,000

YEARS THE NATIONS OF THE

WORLD RECOGNIZED A JEWISH

HOMELAND.

BUT IT IS VERY IMPORTANT

TO UNDERSTAND THAT LONG

BEFORE THAT, LONG BEFORE THE

HOLOCAUST, THERE WAS ALREADY

AN AGREEMENT THAT THE JEWISH

PEOPLE HAD THE RIGHT TO

STATEHOOD, THE RIGHT TO

SELF-DETERMINATION, JUST

LIKE AT PEOPLE GROUPS.

Reporter: 2014 MARKS

THE 94th ANNIVERSARY OF

THE SAN RIMO REVOLUTION.

AND ISRAEL ALSO RECOGNIZES

SAN RIMO AS A PRESENT DAY

FOUNDATION IN ITS BATTLE FOR

A PLACE AMONG THE NATION.

CRITICS SEEM TO QUESTION

OUR LEGITIMACY.

WE HAVE TO GO BACK TO SAN

RIMO AND SAY, LOOK, HERE IS

THE INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENT

AGREED BY ALL MEMBERS OF THE

LEAGUE OF NATIONS AT THE

TIME, THAT SAYS, YES, WE

HAVE THIS RIGHT.

Reporter: AND THAT

RIGHT PROVIDES HISTORICAL

AMMUNITION TO FIGHT THE

BOYCOTT DIVESTMENT AND

SANCTIONS MOVEMENT, CALLED

B.D.S.

> IT AIMS TO PERSUADE

COMPANIES TO WE DRAW MONEY

FROM ISRAEL.

IT COUNTERS THE ARGUMENTS

OF THE B.D.S., TO SAY THAT

ISRAEL IS A CLON COLONIAL

POWER.

IT IS THE OPPOSITE.

MANY HISTORIANS WOULD SAY

THAT THE SAN RIMO REVOLUTION

ALSO WAS THE BEGINNING OF

THE DEED COLONIZATION

PROCESS.

HERE WE HAVE A PEOPLE GROUP

THAT HAVE BEEN OCCUPIED FOR

1,800 YEARS, THAT ARE

FINALLY GETTING THEIR

RECOGNITION OF STATEHOOD.

Reporter: SANDELLA SAYS

ANYONE QUESTIONING THE

MODERN STATE OF ISRAEL CAN

FIND THE ANSWER IN THIS

ITALIAN ANSWER.

WHEN WE HAVE THIS

QUESTION OF DO THE JEWISH

PEOPLE REALLY BELONG IN

ISRAEL, AND DO THEY HAVE A

LEGITIMATE CLAIM TO THE

LAND, THAT QUESTION WAS

DECIDED ONCE AND FOR ALL IN

1920 UNDER INTERNATIONAL

LAW, HERE AT THIS VERY

PLACE, SAN RIMO.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, SAN

RIMO, ITALY.

Wendy: AND FOR MORE OF

CHRIS' EXCLUSIVE COVERAGE OF

ISRAEL, MAKE SURE YOU CHECK

OUT HIS WEEKLY SHOW AND

BLOG, JERUSALEM DATE LINE,

AND YOU CAN FIND THEM ON OUR

WEBSITE, CBNNEWS.COM.

Mark: UP NEXT, HOW SOME

IN THE CITY OF SPOKAN ARE

USING PRAY TO RECLAIM THE

TITLE OF THE HEALTHIEST CITY

IN THE WORLD.

Wendy: FEW PEOPLE TODAY

HAVE HEARD OF HIM, BUT HE

HAD A PROFOUND INFLUENCE AND

HEALING MINISTRY HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES.

Mark: HIS NAME WAS JOHN

G.LAKE, AND HE WAS A LEADER

INPENTECOSTAL MOVEMENT

IN THE 20th CENTURY.

Wendy: HIS LEGACY LIVES

ON TODAY WITH THE REOPENING

OF THE HEALING ROOM IN

SPOKAN, WASHINGTON.

Reporter: AT THE AGE OF

16, JOHN G. LAKE GAVE HIS

LIFE TO CHRIST DURING A

SALVATION ARMY REVIVAL

MEETING.

AS A YOUNG ADULT, HE MOVED

TO AFRICA AND BEGAN A

POWERFUL MINISTRY.

THEN HE MOVED TO THE U.S.

AND SETTLED DOWN IN SPOKAN,

WASHINGTON.

AND THERE HE OPENED UP THE

HEALING ROOMS, WHERE PEOPLE

COULD PRAY AND SEEK GOD.

HIS MINISTRY DOCUMENTED OVER

100,000 HEALINGS.

SPOKAN BECAME KNOWN NOT ONLY

AS THE HEALTHIEST CITY IN

AMERICA, BUT THE HEALTHIEST

CITY IN THE WORLD.

@#@#JOHN G. LAKE HAD A HUNGER

FOR GOD AND THE TRUTH AND

THE WORLD.

OUT OF THAT WORD, HE CAME TO

THE DISCOVERY THAT GOD

WASN'T JUST ABLE TO HEAL,

BUT HE WAS WILLING TO MOVE.

Reporter: NOW JOHN

DIRECTS THE HEALING ROOM

MINISTRIES.

IN THE MID-1990s, AS A

CALIFORNIA REAL ESTATE

DEVELOPER, HE WAS PREPARING

FOR RETIREMENT.

BUT HE SAYS AFTER MUCH

PRAYER AND FASTING, GOD

SHOWED HIM ANOTHER PLAN FOR

HIS LIFE.@#

FINALLY AT THE END OF THE

FAST, THE HOLY SPIRIT COULD

GET@#@cINTO MY SPIRIT.

HE SAID, I WANT@#@#YOU TO REDIG

THOSE WELLHEALING THAT

JOHN HAD.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE DID.

Reporter: THE HEALING

ROOMS CLOSED IN 1935.

PIERCE PURCHASED THE

ORIGINAL PROPERTY AND THEN

REOPENED THE HEALING ROOMS,

EVENTUALLY RELOCATED IT TO

ANOTHER AREA OF THE CITY.

THE MINISTRY THEN EXPANDED

TO THE POINT WHERE IT NOW

TAKES UP AN ENTIRE BLOCK OF

DOWNTOWN SPOKAN.

THE HEALING ROOM IS AN

INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY, AND

IT ACTIVATES THE SAINTS OF

GOD INTO THE WORK OF THE

MINISTRY.

AND THE PURPOSE IS TO GET

THE BODY OF CHRIST, OR GOD'S

PEOPLE, HEALED AND

RESTORED.

Reporter: WELL, HERE WE

ARE IN THE HEALING ROOM

HALLWAY.

THERE ARE EIGHT HEALING

ROOMS.

YOU'VE GOT THE FIRE ROOM,

THE PORTAL ROOM, THE WAVES

OF GLORY ROOM, AND MANY

OTHERS.

FOLKS COME FROM ALL OVER THE

WORLD, AND HERE IN AMERICA,

SPECIFICALLY TO SPOKAN,

LOOKING FOR HEALING AND

GOD'S TOUCH.

OPEN FIVE DAYS A WEEK,

ANYONE NEEDING PRAYER CAN

COME TO THE HEALING ROOMS.

NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY.

YOU JUST SHOW UP AND SIGN

IN.

STAFF MEMBERS ARE ON STAND

BY AND READY TO PRAY.

THERE IS ALSO THE GLORY

ROOM.

THIS IS WHERE INTERCESSORS

WORSHIP BEFORE PRAYING FOR

THE NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE,

LIKE JOSHUA COX, WHO HAS

BEEN COMING HERE FOR THE

PAST YEAR.

I CAN ONLY EXPLAIN IT

LIKE I GET HIT BY HOLY

SPIRIT MACK TRUCKS EVERY

TIME I COME HERE.

GOD MEETS ME HERE.

I ALWAYS ASK FOR A SPECIAL

WORD, SOMETHING PRECISE FOR

WHAT I NEED, AND HE ALWAYS

DELIVERS IT TO ME.

Reporter: AND HE SAYS

HE WANTS TO MINISTER TO THE

NATIONS.

THAT LED TO THE

INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF

HEALING ROOMS, WHERE HE

TRAINS ORDINARY PEOPLE FOR

EXTRAORDINARY WORK.

TODAY MORE THAN 3,000

HEALING ROOMS OPERATE IN 75

COUNTRIES.

AND HERE IN THE STRATEGY

ROOM, PEOPLE PRAY FOR THE

HEALING OF THE NATIONS.

WE'LL HAVEMES

PEOPLE WHO WILLASK US,

WELL, SHOULD WE HAVE A

HEALING ROOM INOUR

COMMUNITY?

AND I ALWAYS ANSWER THE SAME

WAY: DO YOU HAVE ANY SICK

PEOPLE THERE?

WHEREYOU HAVE SICK PEOPLE,

YOU NEED HEALING AND HEALING

ROOMS.

Reporter: PIERCE SAYS

HE BELIEVE BELIEVES WE'RE

LIVING IN WHAT HE CALLS THE

ISAIAH 60 ERA, WHERE

DARKNESS TAKES HOLD.

I WANT TO SEE THESE

WARRIORS RISE INTO THEIR

DESTINY, AND TO REALIZE WITH

HAVE THE POWER AND AUTHORITY

TO TAKE BACK WHAT THE ENEMY

HAS STOLEN.

I'VE READ@c@cTHE LAST CHAPTER,

AND WE WIN.

BUT WE'VE GOT@#@#TO REALIZE GOD

CALLS US AN OVERCOMER, AND

THAT MEANS WE HAVE TO HAVE

SOMETHING TO OVERCOME.

Reporter: DAVID BRODY,

CBN NEWS, SPOKAN,

WASHINGTON.

Wendy: UP NEXT, HOW CBN

POLITICS AT THE WHITE HOUSE

CORRESPONDENCE DINNER.

FOOTBALL CAMP, OR GOING BACK

TO MY OLD HIGH SCHOOL,

EVERYTHING I DO I WANT TO BE

ABLE TO PROCLAIM MY FAITH.

COLTON TO HEAVEN MIGHT WANT

TO TAKE THEM, TOO, IF THEY

PUT JESUS IN THEIR LIVES.
