Gordon: A MOTHER IS

GIVEN A DEATH SENTENCE BY

HER DOCTOR SIX DIFFERENT

TIMES.

YES, IT IS MALIGNANT, AND

IT IS STUCK TO YOUR HEART.

Gordon: AND SURVIVED.

MY LIVER SURGEON COMES

BUSTING THROUGH AND

SAYS, "THE RESURRECTION."

Gordon: HER STORY OF

HOPE ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

Gordon: 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.

MARY PAPAS SAYS SHE HAS

EXPERIENCED THE HEALING

POWER OF PRAYER FIRSTHAND.

IT HAS BEEN HER GO-TO WEAPON

IN HER BATTLE AGAINST CANCER

SIX SEPARATE TIMES.

HER AMAZING SURVIVAL IS

NOTHING SHORT OF WHAT HER

DOCTOR CALLS MIRACULOUS.

THIS SURGERY, FROM HERE

TO HERE, I'M CUT OPEN, WHERE

MY BREAST BONE WAS SAWED

OPEN.

Reporter: HER SCARS

TELL A STORY OF A JOURNEY OF

TRUSTING GOD.

AND THEY TOOK A TUMOR

OUT.

Reporter: AND HOW

PRAYER GAVE HER THE WILL TO

LIVE.

MARY PAPAS IS A SIX-TIME

CANCER SURVIVOR AND IS

GRATEFUL TO BE ALIVE.

JUST TWO YEARS AFTER SHE AND

HER HUSBAND STEVE MARRIED,

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH STAGE

THREE THIGHOMA, A RARE

CANCER.

SHE WAS ONLY 25.

SHE AND STEVE REMEMBERED

WHEN THE DOCTORS GAVE THEM

THE DIAGNOSIS.

YES, IT IS MALIGNANTMENT

AND IMALIGNANT.

AND IT STUCK TO YOUR HEART.

IT CAME OUT OF ITS CAPSULE,

SO IT SPILLED INTO YOUR

CHEST CAVITY.

I THOUGHT, AM I GOING TO

BE ALONE ALREADY?

I PRAYED FOR SOMEBODY TO

SPEND THE REST OF MY LIFE

WITH, AND THIS IS HOW IT IS

GOING TO END UP.

Reporter: DOCTORS HAD

TO PERFORM OPEN CHEST HEART

SURGERY.

AND PEOPLE CAME TO PRAY.

I HEARD ABOUT WHERE

PEOPLE WERE WEEPING AND

MOANING AND CRYING OUT TO

GOD.

Reporter: DOCTORS

REMOVED THE TUMORS

SUCCESSFUL, AND MARY WENT

THROUGH FIVE RADIATION

SESSIONS AND WAS GIVEN A

CLEAN BILL OF HELP.

BUT OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL

YEARS, MARY WOULD GO THROUGH

TWO MORE BOUTS OF CANCER.

MEDICAL TREATMENT AND PRAYER

HELPED TO PULL HER THROUGH.

I READ EVERYTHING THAT

WAS POSSIBLE, EVERYTHING I

COULD READ ABOUT HEALING,

EVERYTHING I COULD READ

ABOUT FAITH.

EVERYTHING I COULD FIND, I

READ OVER AND OVER AND

OVER.

Reporter: DURING THIS

TIME, THEY ALSO STARTED A

FAMILY.

IN 189, THEY HAD TWIN BOYS,

STEVEN AND MICHAEL.

FOR THE NEXT SEVEN YEARS,

MARY ENJOYED BEING A MOTHER

AND LIVING CANCER-FREE.

I JUST THOUGHT THAT THAT

WAS MY LAST EPISODE OF EVER

HAVING CANCER AGAIN AND THIS

WAS ALL BEHIND ME.

AND I'M JUST GOING TO RAISE

AND ADORE MY CHILDREN.

WE HAD A LOT OF HOPE THAT

THIS WOULD BE MAYBE THE

FINAL TIME.

Reporter: BUT IT

WASN'T.

IN 2003 A ROUTINE C.A.T.

SCAN SHOWED A SMALL MASS ON

HER LIVER.

I WAS 34, AND I HAVE TWO

LITTLE KIDS I LOVE MORE THAN

LIFE ITSELF.

I AM NOT DYING.

Reporter: MARY WAS

ADMITTED TO THE UNIVERSITY

OF PITTSBURGH LIVER CANCER

CENTER.

DR. JAMES MARSH WAS THE HEAD

SURGEON.

WHEN HE OPENED HER UP, HE

DISCOVERED A PROSTHETIC FROM

HER PREVIOUS SURGERY HAD

ATTACHED TO HER LIVER.

TAKING OUT THE CANCER IN

AND OF ITSELF WASN'T THAT

DIFFICULT, BUT GETTING THE

LIVER OFF THIS PROSTHETIC

MATERIAL WAS A DISASTER AND

A NIGHTMARE.

AND WHEN WE WERE DOING THAT,

HER LIVER CRACKED OPEN.

SO WE HAD TO TAKE OUT MUCH

MORE OF HER LIVER THAN WE

HAD ORIGINALLY INTENDED.

Reporter: DOCTORS

REMOVED THE CANCER, BUT

AFTER THE SURGERY SHE

STARTED HAVING SEIZURES.

DOCTORS INDUCED A COMA.

HER CONDITION WORSENED, AND

THEY PUT HER ON LIFE

SUPPORT.

SHE HAD SCANS OF HER

BRAIN.

SHE HAD SPINAL TAPS SEVERAL

TIMES.

WE CONSULTED NEUROLOGY.

WE CONSULTED EVERYONE, AND

WE COULDN'T FIND WHAT WAS

WRONG WITH HER.

Reporter: FOR TWO WEEKS

MARY REMAINED IN A COMA.

STEVEN AND MICHAEL WERE

TEENAGERS WHEN THEY SAW

THEIR MOTHER IN THE

HOSPITAL.

SHE JUST HAD, LIKE, THE

FEEDING TUBE IN THERE, AND

ALL OF THESE WIRES ATTACHED

TO HER.

IT WAS REALLY, LIKE,

SHOCKING.

I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING

LIKE THAT.

I REMEMBER WALKING BACK

TO THE WAITING ROOM.

THERE WERE FRIENDS AND

FAMILY AND PEOPLE THAT WERE

THERE FOR SUPPORT.

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE JUST HAD

TEARS IN THEIR EYES OR THEIR

HEADS WERE DOWN.

Reporter: STEVE VISITED

HER EVERY DAY.

ON ONE OF THOSE DAYS, THE

DOCTOR TOLD STEVE THAT HIS

WIFE MIGHT NOT MAKE IT.

HE SAID, I DON'T THINK

YOU SHOULD LEAVE TONIGHT.

I SAID, THAT'S FINE, I

WON'T.

AND I COULD TELL IN HIS

VOICE AND THE WAY HE

APPROACHED ME THAT HE WAS --

IT WAS GETTING A LITTLE

EMOTIONAL.

HOW DO I EXPLAIN THAT TO MY

KIDS?

Reporter: THEIR CHURCH

HELD A SPECIAL PRAYER

SERVICE.

THEIR PASTOR, DAVID THOMAS,

OF VICTORY CHRISTIAN CENTER

IN,IN YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO,

STOOD IN FOR MARY.

PEOPLE LADY HANDS ON ME,

AND A ROAR -- WHEW -- A ROAR

WENT UP OF INTENSITY.

WE SPOKE LIFE AND DECREED

LIFE.

Reporter: TWO WEEKS

LATER, MARY WOKE UP.

MY LIVER SURGEON HAD COME

BUSTING THROUGH AND SAID,

"THE RESURRECTION," WHICH IS

WHAT HE SAID BECAUSE I WAS

ON COMPLETE LIFE SUPPORT.

I KIND OF FELT LIKE IT

WAS THE LAZARUS STORY.

LIKE SHE JUST CAME OUT OF

THE TOMB AND WAS RAISED FROM

THE DEAD.

I REMEMBER SHE TURNED TO ME

AND SHE SAID, PRAISE GOD.

AND I SAID, YEAH, PRAISE

GOD.

Reporter: MARY STARTED

REHAB TO LEARN HOW TO WALK

AGAIN.

IN ONE MONTH SHE WAS ABLE TO

GO HOME TO BE WITH HER

FAMILY.

WE'RE ALL TOGETHER, AND

GOD HAD BROUGHT US THROUGH A

PHENOMENAL TIME.

AND IT LEFT JUST AN IMPRINT

ON OUR HEARTS.

Reporter: MARY BEAT

CANCER TWO MORE TIMES, IN

2008 AND IN 2009.

SINCE THEN SHE'S BEEN

CANCER-FREE.

SHE IS AN AMAZING

PATIENT.

AND I THINK HER FAITH AND

HER COURAGE ARE PROBABLY THE

MOST OUTSTANDING THING.

YES, I WOULD DEFINITELY CALL

HER RECOVERY MIRACULOUS.

Reporter: MARY NOW

HELPS OTHER CANCER PATIENTS

BATTLE CANCER.

MARY HAS WRITTEN A BOOK

ABOUT HER JOURNEY OF

HEALING, AND SHARES HER

TESTIMONY AT WOMEN'S

CONFERENCES.

SHE AND HER FAMILY KNOW

PRAYER AND FAITH IN GOD ARE

THE KEYS TO OVERCOMING ANY

OBSTACLE IN LIFE.

WE'VE LEARNED ABOUT THE

CHARACTER OF GOD THROUGH

THIS.

AND THIS WHOLE THING IS A

MIRACLE.

I BELIEVE, AND I KNOW,

THAT GOD WILL REACH DOWN

INTO YOUR SITUATION AND WILL

MAKE HIMSELF SO REAL AND SO

KNOWN THAT YOU WILL KNOW FOR

SURE HE IS IN CONTROL.

Gordon: YOU CAN KNOW

THAT SAME SURETY, TO KNOW

FOR SURE THAT HE IS IN

CONTROL, AND TO KNOW FOR

SURE THAT HE CAN GRANT THE

REQUEST THAT YOU MAKE OF

HIM.

SO OFTEN IN LIFE WE ALLOW

DEFEATS TO OVERCOME US.

WE ALLOW THESE OBSTACLES

TO.

IT'S LIKE WE LEARN TO BE

HELPLESS IN THE FACE OF THAT

ADVERSITY.

WE LEARN TO GIVE UP AND TO

SAY, WELL, HELP ISN'T

COMING.

I MIGHT AS WELL GET USED TO

THIS.

OR I MIGHT AS WELL JUST GIVE

IN.

WELL, THAT'S NOT WHAT JESUS

SAID.

AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT HIS

WORDS AND HIS LIFE AND WHAT

HE OVERCAME -- HE OVERCAME

CRUCIFIXION.

HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THAT, YOU

GO, OKAY, HOW DO YOU GET

THAT KIND OF FAITH?

HOW DO YOU GET THAT KIND OF

PERSEVERANCE?

JESUS TOLD US IN A PARABLE,

AND IT STARTS OUT IN LUKE

18, WITH THIS ADMONITION

FROM LUKE.

IT SAYS, "JESUS SPOKE A

PARABLE TO THEM, THAT MEN

ALWAYS OUGHT TO PRAY AND NOT

LOSE HEART."

THAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU

NEED TO JUST EDG ETCH INTO

YOUR HEART AND INTO YOUR

THOUGHT PROCESS.

YOU SHOULD ALWAYS PRAY AND

NOT LOSE HEART.

NO MATTER WHAT THE

CIRCUMSTANCES ARE AROUND

YOU, REALIZE YOU CAN NEVER

BEEN TOO DEAD FOR A

RESURRECTION.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.

YOU CAN BE RAISED UP IF YOU

DON'T LOSE HEART.

NOW, IF YOU GIVE UP AND YOU

STOP ASKING, WELL, YOU KNOW

WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN

THEN.

BUT IF YOU PERSEVERE IN

PRAYER, THEN YOU'LL GET THE

SAME RESULT THAT THE WIDOW

IN THE PARABLE GOT.

HERE IT IS, LUKE 18: 2-8:

"THERE WAS A CERTAIN CITY, A

JUDGE WHO DID NOT FEAR GOD

NOR REGARD MAN."

WHY DOES JESUS SAY THAT?

A JUDGE WHO DIDN'T FEAR GOD

NOR REGARD MAN.

HE IS SAYING, THIS IS WHAT

THE UNRIGHTEOUS DO.

SO IF THE UNRIGHTEOUS DO

THIS, HOW MUCH MORE WILL

YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER DO THE

SAME?

HNOW, THERE WAS A WIDOW IN

THAT CITY, AND SHE CAME TO

HIM SAYING, GET JUSTICE FOR

ME FROM MY ADVERSARY.

AND THE JUDGE WOULD NOT FOR

A WHILE, BUT AFTERWARDS HE

SAID, "WITHIN HIMSELF,

THOUGH I DO NOT FEAR GOD NOR

REGARD MAN, YET SINCE THIS

WIDOW TROUBLES ME, I WILL

AVENGE HER FOR BY HER

CONTINUAL COMING SHE WEARYS

ME."

"I TELL YOU HE WILL AVENGE

THEM SPEEDILY."

HERE IS MARY, IF THERE WAS

EVER A SITUATION WHERE YOU

SAY YOU'VE JUSTIFIED IN

GIVING UP.

SIX TIMES SHE HAD TO BATTLE

CANCER.

ONE OF THOSE TIMES SHE WAS

IN AN OPERATING CONDITION

WHERE THEY TEAR HER LIVER,

TRYING TO GET A PIECE OF

MATERIAL FROM A PREVIOUS

SURGERY OFF HER LIVER.

SHE GOES INTO A COMA.

AND THE DOCTOR GAVE UP.

AND HE IS TELLING THE FAMILY

YOU NEED TO STAY BECAUSE SHE

MAY NOT MAKE IT.

BUT SHE DIDN'T GIVE UP.

AND THE PEOPLE PRAYING

AROUND HER DIDN'T GIVE UP.

THEY DID WHAT THAT WIDOW

DID.

THEY PRAYED DAY AND NIGHT.

THEY CRIED OUT.

YOU'VE HEARD THE PASTOR SAY,

I SAT IN PLACE FOR HER.

I WAS A PROXY FOR HER.

AND THERE WAS SUCH A ROAR IN

THE CONGREGATION WHEN THEY

LAID HANDS ON HIM.

THEY ROARED IN HEAVEN, AND

THEY LET THEIR CRY BE

HEARD.

AND HOW MANY TIMES HAVE

PRAYERS BEEN MADE OVER MARY,

DAY AND NIGHT, PRAYING FOR

HER, PRAYING FOR HER

RECOVERY.

THAT CRYING OUT THAT WILL

NOT BE DENIED.

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND GOD IS

IN CONTROL AND HE HAS GOT

YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES -- IT'S

NOT A REASON FOR YOU TO SIT

BACK.

IT'S A REASON FOR YOU TO

TAKE ACTION.

AND TAKE ACTION SPECIFICALLY

IN PRAYER.

THAT'S WHY THIS PARABLE

STARTS OFF THAT MEN ALWAYS

OUGHT TO PRAY AND NOT LOSE

HEART.

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND GOD IS

IN CONTROL, HE IS ABLE TO

GRANT YOUR REQUEST NO MATTER

WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES, NO

MATTER HOW BAD IT SEEMS.

HE IS ABLE TO GRANT YOUR

REQUEST.

SO LET YOUR CRY BE HEARD AND

PERSEVERE IN PRAYER.

AND PRAY ALL NIGHT.

PRAY ALL DAY.

PRAY CONTINUOUSLY.

LET YOUR REQUEST BE MADE

KNOWN.

MAKE SURE YOU'RE BEING

HEARD, AND THEN YOU'LL GET

THE ANSWER FOR YOUR PRAYER.

UP NEXT, WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU.

AND FIRST WE'VE GOT A STORY

ABOUT A WOMAN WHO HAD A

HEADACHE THAT WAS SO

PAINFUL, SHE COULDN'T EVEN

THINK.

IT WAS JUST A DULL ACHE

THAT LEFT ME FEELING LIKE I

WAS IN A FOG, UNABLE TO GET

MY THOUGHTS TOGETHER, UNABLE

TO CONCENTRATE.

Gordon: SEE HOW SHE WAS

HEALED IN AN INSTANT.

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: DOCTORS DIDN'T

KNOW WHY MARY WAS IN PAIN.

SO THEY GAVE HER SOME

MEDICATION AND SENT HER

HOME.

THAT DIDN'T HELP, AND MARY'S

HEAD CONTINUED TO THROB

WHENEVER SHE OPENED HER

EYES.

THAT ALL DIDN'T CHANGE UNTIL

MARY SAT DOWN AND TURNED ON

THE TV.

THE HEADACHES WERE DULL.

EVERY WAKING MOMENT I FELT

LIKE A HAMMER HAD HIT THE

BACKS OF MY EYES.

IT WAS JUST THIS DULL ACHE

THAT LEFT ME FEELING LIKE I

WAS IN A FOG, UNABLE TO GET

MY THOUGHTS TOGETHER, UNABLE

TO CONCENTRATE.

I LOOKED BACK IN MY JOURNAL

IN AUGUST OF 2011, "THIS HAS

BEEN A QUIET BUT HARD DAY

FOR ME, LORD.

THE PAIN BEHIND MY EYES AND

IN MY NECK ADD TO MY

STRESS.

ONE SIDE OF MY HEAD IS DARK

FROM VISION LOSS.

ANXIETY IS EVER PRESENT.

I NEED ANSWERS AND I NEED

HEALING.

LORD BLESS ME WITH HEALTH,

BOTH MENTAL AND PHYSICAL."

THE HIGHLIGHT TO MY EVERY

MORNING WAS TURNING ON "THE

700 CLUB."

ONE DAY GORDON WAS ON, AND

HE ALWAYS SEEMED TO HAVE A

SPOT-ON MESSAGE FOR

SOMEONE.

I THOUGHT, I REALLY NEED

HEALING, BUT I'M NOT GOING

TO BELIEVE IT'S FOR ME

UNLESS HE CALLS MY NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS A

WOMAN NAMED MARY, AND YOU

ACTUALLY SAID, UNLESS THEY

SAY MY NAME --

AND BOY, THAT GOT MY

ATTENTION.

I'M THINKING, IF YOU PRAY

FOR MY HEAD, I KNOW IT

REALLY IS FOR ME.

Gordon: MARY, FOR YOU,

YOUR MIGRAINES ARE BEING

TAKEN AWAY.

ALL OF THAT IS LEAVING.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE NORMAL

FUNCTION WITHIN YOUR BRAIN.

I WAS JUST REJOICING THAT

JESUS KNEW MY NAME, AND HE

CARED ENOUGH TO MEET ME

RIGHT THERE.

AND THEN I REALIZED MY

HEADACHE WAS GONE.

I NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM

AGAIN.

I'M NOT A DOUBTER ANYMORE.

I BELIEVE THAT JESUS DOES

MIRACLES EVERY DAY.

I BELIEVE THAT THERE IS

NOTHING TOO HARD FOR HIM,

AND HE WALKS BESIDE US, AND

WE NEVER HAVE TO FEAR

BECAUSE HE GIVES US GRACE

FOR THE MOMENT, FOR THE DAY,

AND I'VE EXPERIENCED THAT.

Gordon: HE KNOWS YOUR

NAME, HE KNOWS EVERYTHING

ABOUT YOU.

THE BIBLE SAYS HE NUMBERS

THE HAIRS ON YOUR HEAD.

HE KEEPS TRACK OF

EVERYTHING.

HE IS CONCERNED ABOUT YOU.

YOU CANNOT NUMBER HIS

THOUGHTS ABOUT YOU.

WHEN YOU START TO CONSIDER

THE MAGNITUDE OF ALL OF

THESE THINGS, WELL THEN

FAITH STARTS TO BUILD AND

YOU UNDERSTAND HIS GREAT

LOVE, THE POWER THAT HE HAS

TOWARDS THOSE WHO BELIEVE.

WE WEREN'T TO PRAY FOR YOU.

AND THIS IS THE SHOW WHERE

WE INTERACT WITH US.

SO WE'VE GOT SOME PRAYER

REQUESTS.

LET'S GO OVER TO JESSICA.

GORDON, MATTHEW ON

Facebook SAYS, "I AM 13

YEARS OLD AND I AM SICK.

I HAVE HAD A BRAIN TUMOR AND

I'M BLIND.

I'VE PRAYED FOR GOD TO HEAL

ME, BUT SOMETIMES IT FEELS

LIKE HE CAN'T HEAR ME.

PLEASE PRAY THAT I'LL BE

HEALED AND I'LL BE ABLE TO

SEE."

CAM WRITES IN, "I'VE BEEN

SICK FOR TWO YEARS WITH

DIGESTIVE INFECTIONS, AND

YOUR SHOW HAS BEEN A

CONSTANT SOURCE OF

ENCOURAGEMENT FOR ME.

THE DOCTORS HAVE NO IDEA HOW

TO TREAT ME.

PLEASE PRAY I WILL BE FREE

FROM MY SICKNESS SO I CAN BE

THE WIFE AND MOM I ONCE

WAS.

I BELIEVE GOD CAN HEAL ME."

GORDON?

Gordon: LET'S PRAY FOR

THESE AND LET'S PRAY FOR

YOU.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A NEED IN

YOUR LIFE, JOIN WITH US.

LET'S CREATE A GREAT CIRCLE

OF PRAYER AND REALIZE THE

MEANING, WHEN JESUS SAID,

"WHEN TWO OR MORE ARE

GATHERED TOGETHER IN MY

NAME, THERE I AM IN THE

MIDST OF THEM."

WE CAN LITERALLY REACH

THROUGH TIME AND SPACE IN

THE SPIRIT AND CREATE AN

ATMOSPHERE THAT JESUS DWELLS

IN.

AND IF WE KNOW HE IS WITH

US, WE KNOW HE HEARS.

IF WE KNOW WE HAVE PRAYED IN

ACCORDANCE WITH HIS WILL, WE

KNOW HE HEARS.

WHAT IS IT WILL?

HE TOLD US THAT GOD'S WILL

WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT

IS IN HEAVEN.

SO IN HEAVEN, DOES ANYBODY

HAVE A BRAIN TUMOR?

DOES ANYBODY HAVE INTESTINAL

INFECTIONS?

IS THERE ANY SICKNESS?

THE ANSWER IS NO.

SO THAT'S GOD'S WILL.

AND HE HAS TOLD US TO PRAY

THAT HIS WILL WILL BE DONE

ON EARTH AS IT IS IN

HEAVEN.

SO WE'RE GOING TO PRAY THAT

HIS WILL WILL BE DONE IN

YOUR BODY.

AND THE SICKNESS LEAVES YOU

IN JESUS' NAME.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE PRAY FOR MATTHEW,

AND WE PRAY MOST OF ALL THAT

HIS EARS WOULD BE OPEN TO

HEAR YOU.

AND HIS HEART WOULD BE A

HEART OF UNDERSTANDING, THAT

HE WOULD KNOW THE GREATNESS

OF YOUR POWER TOWARDS US WHO

BELIEVE.

AND, LORD, YOU'VE HEARD HIS

CRY, AND YOU'VE HEARD HIS

WONDER.

DO YOU HEAR?

DO YOU RESPOND?

AND SO, LORD, ANSWER NOW

SWIFTLY, AND OPEN HIS EYES

THAT HE MAY SEE AGAIN.

AND WE SPEAK TO THIS TUMOR,

BE GONE.

SHRINK AND GO AWAY AND

BECOME NOTHING.

YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO THIS

BODY.

YOU MUST LEAVE IT NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

WE CANCEL YOUR POWER BY THE

BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST, FOR

BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS,

MATTHEW WAS HEALED AND IS

HEALED NOW.

NOW, LORD, FOR CAM, FOR HER

FAMILY, WE JUST PRAY HEALING

INTO HER INTESTINES NOW.

WE ASK THAT HER IMMUNE

SYSTEM, THAT THE NATURAL

BALANCE THAT YOU'VE ORDAINED

WOULD BE RESTORED.

AND THERE WOULD BE NO MORE

INFECTION, NO MORE CRAMPING,

NO MORE PAIN, NO MORE

DOUBLING OVER, NO MORE

URGENCY, BUT JUST EVERYTHING

WOULD WORK IN HARMONY, AS

YOU INTENDED.

LET PEACE COME TO CAM RIGHT

NOW.

AND ANY STRESS IN HER LIFE,

WE CANCEL IT.

AND WE ASK THAT THE PEACE

THAT SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING WHAT GUARD HER

HEART AND MIND.

AND NOW, LORD, FOR THOSE WHO

ARE WATCHING, THERE IS

STEPHANIE.

LORD, WE PRAY FOR STEPHANIE,

AND WE SAY OVER HER,

MIGRAINES BE GONE.

AFFLICT HER NO MORE.

LET HERB FRE HER BE FREE

FROM THIS PAIN AND

DEBILITATION NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

LET YOUR PEACE REST ON HER

NOW.

JESSICA, GOD HAS GIVEN YOU

SOMETHING.

I'M SENSING THERE IS

SOMEBODY WITH EYE PROBLEMS.

YOU HAD A LOT OF PAIN IN

YOUR EYE, A LOT OF VISION

IMPAIRMENT.

AND GOD IS JUST HEALING YOUR

EYE RIGHT NOW.

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO PUT YOUR

HAND ON YOUR EYE AS AN ACT

OF FAITH, AND GOD IS

TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOWMENT

AND YOU'RNOW.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO SEE

CLEARLY, AND THE BLURRINESS

IS GOING TO CLEAR UP IN

JESUS' NAME.

GORDON?

Gordon: LORD, YOU ARE

THE HEALER AND THE

RESTORER.

YOU CAME SO WE COULD BE MADE

WHOLE.

WE THANK YOU FOR ALL OF IT.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED, WE

WANT TO SHARE YOUR STORY

WITH THE WORLD, SO GIVE US A

CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

1-888-777-1999.

LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD

SAY SO.

LET US KNOW ABOUT YOUR

STORY.

AND IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN

HEALED, WE BELIEVE IN

PREVAILING PRAYER.

WE BELIEVE IN NIGHTTIME

PRAYER, DAYTIME PRAYER,

24-HOUR PRAYER, AND WE'RE

HERE FOR YOU, AND WE'RE JUST

A PHONE CALL AWAY.

SO IF YOU WANT TO PERSEVERE

IN PRAYER WITH US, IT WOULD

BE OUR HONOR TO DO SO.

SO JUST CALL US.

1-888-777-1999.

STILL AHEAD ON THE PROGRAM,

HOW ONE COUPLE SAVED THEIR

DYING BUSINESS, RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: TOM WEBBER

WORKED AT THE SAME COMPANY

FOR 34 YEARS.

SO WHEN HE FOUND OUT THAT

THE BUSINESS WAS FOLDING,

TOM AND HIS WIFE PRAYED FOR

A MIRACLE AND THAT'S EXACTLY

WHAT THEY GOT.

Reporter: BEFORE DAWN

IN CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA, TOM

WEBBER IS HARD AT WORK

CRAFTING HIS AWARD-WINNING

SWISS.

GOT HAS BEEN SO GOOD TO

US FOR MANY YEARS.

34 YEARS MAKING CHEESE.

Reporter: BUT LAST YEAR

TOM RECEIVED SOME BAD NEWS,

THE COMPANY WAS CLOSING.

AS THE LEAD CHEESE-MAKER AND

PLANT MANAGER, HE WAS

STUNNED.

SOON HE AND EVERYONE ELSE

WOULD BE OUT OF WORK.

I WAS JUST DRIVING DOWN

THE WORK AND I HAD TO HANG

UP AND CRY LIKE A BABY.

BECAUSE YOU WORK SO HARD FOR

SO MANY YEARS.

IT WAS OUT OF MY CONTROL.

Reporter: WHEN HE

SHARED THE NEWS WITH HIS

WIFE TERRY, HER THOUGHTS

WENT IMMEDIATELY TO THE

HARD-WORKING FAMILIES WHO

WOULD FEEL THE FALLOUT FROM

THE PLANT CLOSING.

I KNOW ONE FELLOW, HIS

WIFE JUST HAD HEART

SURGERY.

JUST THE IDEA OF THEM GOING

WITHOUT INSURANCE WHEN THEY

HAVE THESE MEDICAL BILLS.

Reporter: EVERYTHING IN

THE PLANT WAS TAGGED TO SELL

ON THE AUCTION BLOCK.

AND EVERYONE, ACCEPT TOM,

WAS LAID OFF.

HE STAYED TO OVERSEE THE

SHUTDOWN.

THE PEOPLE'S LIVES THAT

ALL OF A SUDDEN STOPPED.

THEY HAD TO CHANGE AND MOVE

ON AND TRY TO PICK UP THE

PIECES.

IT SEEMS PRETTY HOPELESS.

Reporter: THE WEBBERS

PRAYED FOR A MIRACLE.

AND EVEN IN THE FACE OF

CERTAIN UNEMPLOYMENT, THEY

ALSO CONTINUED TO TITHE AND

GIVE TO MINISTRIES LIKE

CBN.

I THOUGHT THAT WAS THE

WORST THING WE COULD DO, IS

TO BACK OFF.

WHERE IS MY FAITH AND BELIEF

IN GOD'S WORD IF I WOULD

BACK OFF FROM MY GIVING.

I INITIALLY WAS THINKING,

WHY WOULD GOD ALLOW THIS?

WE'VE BEEN TITHERS.

WE'VE BEEN FAITHFULLY

GIVING.

AND IT DAWNED ON ME, I'M

THINKING, YOU DON'T GIVE TO

GET.

YOU GIVE BECAUSE IT IS IN

YOUR HEART TO GIVE AND TO

DONATE AND TO HELP OTHER

PEOPLE.

Reporter: AS THE DAYS

COUNTED DOWN, TOM EDGED

CLOSER TO THE UNEMPLOYMENT

LINE.

DURING THAT PROCESS, MY WIFE

WAS VERY ADAMANT ABOUT

FEELING THAT GOD HAD AN

ANSWER.

GOD WAS NOT GOING TO SHUT

THIS PLANT DOWN.

I WOULD HEAR THE LORD SAY

TO ME THERE WAS A BUYER FOR

PENN CHEESE.

Reporter: A WEEK LATER,

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT TOM

HEARD ON THE PHONE.

UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP, PENN

CHEESE WAS BACK IN

BUSINESS.

I DON'T THINK I EVER SAW

MY HUSBAND SO FULL OF JOY

AND EXPECTANCY.

HE CALLED PEOPLE WITH THIS

BIG SMILE ON HIS FACE, AND

SAID THERE IS A BUYER FOR

THE FACTORY AND PAPERS ARE

SIGNED.

Reporter: THE NEW

OWNERS PUT EVERYONE BACK TO

WORK MAKING THEIR

WORLD-FAMOUS SWISS CHEESE.

THE WEBBERS GIVE ALL OF THE

CREDIT TO GOD.

GOD DID HONOR OUR PRAYERS

AND OUR FAITHFULNESS TO

HIM.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO

PUT IT INTO WORDS BECAUSE

GOD CAME IN IN SUCH A HUGE

WAY.

Gordon: GOD CAN COME IN

IN A HUGE WAY FOR YOU.

DON'T LIMIT HIM.

REALIZE IF YOU ACKNOWLEDGE

HIM IN ALL THAT YOU DO, IN

ALL OF YOUR WAYS, HE'LL

DIRECT YOUR PATHS AND HE'LL

COME THROUGH FOR YOU.

CAN YOU PRAY TO GOD FOR

HEALING?

YES.

CAN YOU PRAY TO HIM FOR

SALVATION?

YES.

HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT

PRAYING OVER YOUR BUSINESS,

OVER YOUR FAMILY, OVER YOUR

FINANCES?

HAVE YOU ASKED FOR HIS

PROVISION, HIS ABUNDANCE.

AND THEN ARE YOU DOING WHAT

HE TELLS YOU TO DO IN ORDER

TO GET THAT?

HE TELLS YOU VERY CLEARLY

YOU HAVE TO GIVE, AND THEN

IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU.

TOM AND TERRY LIVE THAT, AND

THEY'VE LIVED THAT

THROUGHOUT THEIR LIVES.

AND YOU JUST SAW THE MIRACLE

THAT HAPPENED FOR THEM.

IT CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU IF YOU

DO THE SAME THING.

IF YOU WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," JUST CALL US,

1-888-777-1999.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDWE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS: "REJOICE

ALWAYS.

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING AND IN

EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS FOR

THIS IS THE WILL OF CHRIST

JESUS."

GOD BLESS YOU.
