In just 24 hours, your life can completely change. What happen when the clock starts ticking against you? Are you ready? Read Transcript


A FAMILY OF SEVEN IS LOST

AT SEA.

IT WAS HOT.

THE WATER WAS COLD.

WE'RE GETTING DEHYDRATED,

GETTING JELLYFISH STUNG.

I COULD FEEL THE SHARKS.

I WAS EITHER KICKING THEM OR

THEY WERE HITTING ME.

Andrew: FIND OUT HOW

THEY SURVIVED FOR 20 HOURS

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.

Andrew: HI, AND WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

FOR DECADES HOLLYWOOD HAS

PROMOTED CHARACTERS WHO

SERVE AS ALL-AMERICAN HEROS,

FROM THE RECENT MARVEL COMIC

MOVIES TO ONE OF MY

FAVOURITE TV SHOWS, "24."

IT IS CLEAR PEOPLE WANT A

HERO FIGHTING ON THEIR

BEHALF.

Terry: IN THE SHOW,

JACK BOWER HAS 24 HOURS TO

SAVE THE WORLD AND LIVE

ANOTHER DAY.

TODAY WE WANT TO ASK, IN 24

HOURS, HOW COULD YOU LIVE

ANOTHER WAY?

HIS BRAIN WAS ALREADY

SWELLING, AND THEY HAD SAID

IF IT DOESN'T STOP ON ITS

OWN, HE WILL PASS IN 24

HOURS.

THEY FOOT OF WATER IN THE

BOTTOM OF THE BOAT.

THERE IS NO STOPPING IT.

THE PAIN WAS SO SEVERE, I

WAS REALLY CONCERNED AND

SCARED.

THE LORD HAD TOLD MY

HUSBAND, THIS IS GOING TOB

THE YEAR OF NEW BEGINNINGS.

THE FIRST THING THAT CAME

TO MY MIND WAS I BETTER

START PRAYING.

ANY WENT TO SLEEP THAT

NIGHT, AND I WOKE UP THE

NEXT DAY, AND DOCTOR JESUS

HAD STOPPED THE BLEEDING.

THERE WAS AN ANGEL

UNDERNEATH THE BOAT.

IT WAS THERE AS LONG AS GOD

NEEDED IT TO BE THERE.

PUT YOUR FAITH IN ME, AND

I'LL GET YOU THROUGH

ANYTHING.

Andrew: TERRY, AS I

MENTIONED, I LOVE THE SHOW

"24," AND YOU ALWAYS EXPECT

AND KNOW WITHIN THAT 24-HOUR

PERIOD, JACK BOWER IS GOING

TO WRAP THINGS UP AND GET

DONE WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.

I THINK IN OUR PRAYER LIFE,

WE CAN TEND TO PUT A SIMILAR

TIMETABLE ON SOMETHING AND

SAY, I NEED AN ANSWER BY

THIS POINT.

HOW YOU GOING TO DO IT?

Terry: IT IS A

REFLECTIVE QUESTION, THOUGH,

WHAT CAN YOU DO IN 24 HOURS

THAT WOULD CAUSE YOU TO LIVE

DIFFERENTLY, THAT WOULD

CHANGE SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE

THAT WOULD MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

I'M NOT A REGULAR WATCHER OF

"24," BUT I DO THINK IT IS

SO EASY TO GET CAUGHT UP IN

THE BUSYNESS OF LIFE AND THE

CHAOS.

AND PEOPLE WERE TALKING

ABOUT LIFE-INTERRUPTING

THINGS THAT WERE

UNSOLVABLE.

AND I THINK THE MESSAGE GOD

IS TRYING TO GET TO ALL OF

US IN THIS DAY AND AGE, I'M

OVER HERE.

I'M IT.

I'M THE ANSWER.

COME TO ME.

FIND IT IN ME.

IT IS NOT OUT THERE.

IT IS NOT IN THE DOCTOR'S

DIAGNOSIS.

IT IS NOT IN THE

TREATMENTS.

IT IS NOT IN THE MONEY.

IT'S ME.

IT IS HARD TO GRAB HOLD OF

THAT IN THE CHAOS,

SOMETIMES.

Andrew: AND IN TODAY'S

SHOW, SEE HOW ALL THESE

FOLKS' PRAYERS WERE

ANSWERED.

REX SET OFF FOR A FULL DAY

OF FISHING AND HIS WIFE SET

OFF FOR A FULL DAY OF

SHOPPING.

BUT WHEN KEISHA RETURNED AND

HER HUSBAND HAD NOT, SHE

NEVER IMAGINED THAT REX

WOULD BE FIGHTING FOR HIS

LIFE.

SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT.

I SAID, THEY SHOULD BE

GETTING BACK.

MOM SAID, NO, THEY'RE GOING

TO FISH UNTIL DARK.

AND I SAID, NO, REX TOLD ME

THEY WOULD BE IN BY 6:00.

Reporter: KEISHA

WILLAMAN WAS WORRIED.

HER HUSBAND, REX, AND SIX

OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS LEFT

THAT MORNING FOR A DAY OF

FISHING OFF THE COAST OF

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA.

NOW IT WAS LATE AND THEY

HADN'T RETURNED.

THAT'S BECAUSE 12 HOURS

EARLIER THEY RAN INTO

TROUBLE.

THE NEXT THING I KNOW,

ONE ENGINE HICCUPPED AND CUT

ITSELF OFF.

WE HIT THE STARTER, CLACK,

CLACK, CLACK, AND 10 SECONDS

LATER, THE WATER LEVEL WENT

OFF.

THE FIRST THING THAT CAME TO

MIND, BETTER START PRAYING.

THREE FOOT OF WATER IN THE

BOTTOM OF THE BOAT, THERE IS

NO STOPPING IT.

Reporter: REX PUT OUT A

MAY-DAY CALL, AND THEN JUST

MINUTES LATER, THE BOAT WENT

DOWN 20 MILES FROM SHORE.

THE ONLY THING ABOVE WATER

WAS THE BOW, WHICH THE MEN

AND THREE BOYS USED TO STAY

AFLOAT.

AND IN JUST A SHORT TIME,

THE ELEMENTS STARTED TAKING

A TOLL.

THE GROUP WAS ALSO EXHAUSTED

FROM SWIMMING BECAUSE TWICE

THE CURRENT PULLED THEM FROM

THE BOAT.

I MEAN, IT WAS HOT.

RIGHT ON TOP OF YOUR HEAD.

THE WATER WAS COLD.

YOU'RE GETTING DEHYDRATED,

GETTING JELLYFISH STUNG.

AND, OF COURSE, THE

SWIMMING.

THE SWIMMING JUST -- IT

WOULD ALMOST KILL YOU, JUST

TRYING TO STAY UP WITH THE

BOAT.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

THE COAST GUARD HAD BEGUN

THEIR SEARCH.

BUT THE MAY-DAY REX HAD.OUT

BEEN CUT SHORT.

THEY WERE LOOKING FOR THE

BOAT 18 MILES FROM WHERE IT

WENT DOWN.

THEY FOUND NO SIGN OF REX

AND THE OTHERS AND CALLED

OFF THE SEARCH.

AS THE FINAL HOURS OF

DAYLIGHT CAME TO AN END, THE

GROUP FACED MORE

CHALLENGES.

WHEN IT FIRST STARTED

GETTING DARK, DARK, I

THOUGHT, WE'RE GOING TO

SPEND THE NIGHT OUT HERE.

I COULD FEEL THE SHARKS.

I WAS EITHER KICKING THEM OR

THEY WERE HETIN HET HITTING

ME, ONE OF THE TWO.

Reporter: REX AND HIS

BROTHER-IN-LAW WERE THE ONLY

ONES WHO SAW THE SHARKS, BUT

DIDN'T TELL THE OTHERS.

THANKFULLY, THE SHARKS

DIDN'T STICK AROUND.

AT HOME, REX'S WIFE, KEISHA,

CALLED THE COAST GUARD.

THEY TOLD HER ABOUT THE

SEARCH EARLIER IN THE DAY,

AND ASKED HER TO GO TO THE

MARINA TO SEE IF THE BOAT

WAS THERE.

WHEN SHE SAW THE SLIP WAS

EMPTY, SHE REPORTED IT TO

THE COAST GUARD.

THEN SHE TOOK OUT HER BIBLE

AND BEGAN TO PRAY.

IT WAS JAMES 1: 6: ASKING

FAITH, NOTHING WAVERING, FOR

HE THAT WAIVERS IS LIKE A

WAVE OF THE SEA, DRIVEN WITH

THE WIND AND TOSSED.

IT WAS LIKE GOD WAS TELLING

ME, YOU PUT YOUR FAITH IN

ME, I'LL GET YOU THROUGH

ANYTHING.

Reporter: WITH SOME

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FROM

KEISHA, THE COAST GUARD

RESUMED THEIR SEARCH.

BUT TIME WAS RUNNING OUT.

THE TEMPERATURE HAD DROPPED,

AND NOW THEY FACED THE

THREAT OF HYP HYPOTHERMIA.

ALL NIGHT LONG WE WERE IN

THE WATER.

IT WAS SO COLD WE WERE

SHIVERING.

I MEAN, OUR TEETH WERE

CHATTERING CONTINUOUSLY.

THERE AIN'T NOTHING YOU CAN

DO.

WE WOULD WRAP OUR LEGS

AROUND EACH OTHER UNDER

WATER AND JUST HUDDLED UP AS

TIGHT AS WE COULD GET, BUT,

I MEAN, STILL, IT'S COLD.

Reporter: FRIENDS AND

FAMILY PRAYED THROUGH THE

NIGHT.

THE STRANDED GROUP ALSO

PRAYED AS THEY WATCHED COAST

GUARD CHOPPERS SEARCH THE

DARK WATERS.

AT HOME, THE WOMEN KNEW

THEIR PRAYERS HAD BEEN

ANSWERED.

AND MY MOM LOOKED AT ME,

AND SHE SAID, WE BETTER GO

GET READY.

AND I SAID, YEAH, THEY'RE

GOING TO BE CALLING.

Reporter: AND THEN,

JUST BEFORE SUN RISE, A

SPOTLIGHT BROKE THE

DARKNESS.

[YELLING]

Reporter: AFTER 20

HOURS AT SEA, THE MEN WERE

RESCUED.

WE MADE IT!

WE MADE IT!

WHEN THEY TURNED THE

AROUND AND PUT THE SPOTLIGHT

ON US, OH, IT WAS SUNDAY

MORNING.

Reporter: EVERYONE WAS

BROUGHT TO SAFETY AND

TREATED FOR DEHYDRATION AND

SUNBURN.

RECENTLY THE FAMILY CAME

TOGETHER TO REMEMBER THE

EVENTS OF THAT WEEKEND.

BUT ONE MYSTERY MAINS: HOW

DID THAT 38-FOOT CABIN

CRUISER STAY AFLOAT FOR 20

HOURS IN 65 FEET OF WATER.

REX BELIEVES THERE IS ONLY

ONE ANSWER.

THERE WAS AN ANGEL

SITTING UNDERNEATH THE BOAT,

THERE IS NO DOUBT.

EVEN WHEN THEY WENT OUT TO

RESCUE THE BOAT, PULL IT

BACK IN, AND HE HOOKED TO IT

WITH HIS LINE AND IT SANK.

YOU KNOW, IT WAS THERE FOR

THE TIME THAT GOD NEEDED IT

TO SIT THERE.

Andrew: HOW

FRIGHTENING.

REX AND HIS CREWS NEEDED

HEROS, AND THOSE HEROS

SHOWED UP.

HOW FRIGHTENING TO BE

20 MILES OFFSHORE, WITH THE

SCORCHING SUN BURNING YOU

DURING THE DAY, ANDTHE AND

THEN NIGHT FALLS AND THE

WATER CHILLS AND IT IS DARK,

AND SHARKS SWARM FROM

BELOW.

OBVIOUSLY, THAT IS A DIRE

CIRCUMSTANCE.

AND WHEN WE FOCUS ON OUR

DIRE CIRCUMSTANCES, WHAT

HAPPENS?

FEAR AND DOUBT CREEP IN.

THAT'S WHAT THAT VERSE FROM

JAMES WAS TALKING ABOUT.

IT IS ACTUALLY USED IN

ASKING FOR WISDOM, IN

TEACHING US HOW TO PRAY.

LET'S LOOK AT THAT VERSE,

JAMES 1: 6: "BUT WHEN YOU

ASK, YOU MUST BELIEVE AND

NOT DOUBT BECAUSE THE ONE

WHO DOUBTS IS LIKE A WAVE OF

THE SEA, BLOWN AND TOSSED BY

THE WIND."

AND LOOKING AT THAT VERSE,

WE SEE THAT IN A WAVE THERE

IS NO STABILITY, RIGHT?

JUST LIKE OUR FAITH WALK,

THERE ARE THE HIGH CREST

POINTS WHERE WE FEEL VERY

CLOSE TO GOD.

AND THERE ARE TIMES WE'RE IN

THE TROUGH, AND WE FEEL,

GOD, WHERE YOU ARE.

IT IS AT THOSE MOMENTS WHEN

WE FOCUS ON OUR

CIRCUMSTANCES AND DOUBT OUR

ABILITY TO HANDLE WHAT WE'RE

ENDURING.

AND, FRANKLY, DOUBT CUTS US

OFF FROM THE POWER OF GOD.

IN THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES, IT

IS NATURAL TO FEAR, WHEN WE

LOOK AT WHAT IS GOING ON

AROUND US.

IF THOSE PEOPLE IN THE SEA

WERE LOOKING AT JUST THEIR

CIRCUMSTANCES, THERE IS

REASON TO FEAR AND DOUBT.

BUT WHEN THE FOCUS BECOMES

THE POWER AND LOVE OF JESUS

AND HIS PROMISES TO US,

THAT'S WHEN OUR STRENGTH IS

BUILT.

AND THAT'S WHAT JESUS WANTSS

TO DO.

WE'RE NOT TOSSED AROUND BY

OUR CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT WE

FIND OUR FOUNDATION IN

CHRIST.

IT WAS JESUS WHO SAID, IN

MARK'S GOSPEL, 10th

CHAPTER, "WITH GOD, ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE."

PAUL SAID, "THROUGH CHRIST,

I CAN DO ALL THINGS."

HE DIDN'T SAY, I CAN DO ALL

THINGS IF I TRY MY HARDEST.

HE SAID, "I CAN DO ALL

THINGS IN CHRIST, WHO

STRENGTHENS ME."

I ENCOURAGE YOU IF YOU'RE

DOING A ROUGH TIME, DON'T

FOCUS ON THE CIRCUMSTANCES,

WHICH IS NATURAL.

WE NEED TO LOOK HEAVEN-WARD

AND FOCUS ON THE POWER AND

LOVE OF JESUS.

AND, TERRY, IT IS JESUS WHO

SAID, "I AM WITH YOU

ALWAYS."

AND WE TEND TO FORGET THAT.

Terry: AND HE DESIRE IS

TO BE OUR ALL IN ALL.

THAT'S HIS NAME.

WHEN ASKED, HE SAID, "TELL

THEM I AM, SAID YOU."

COMING UP, WE WANT TO PRAY

FOR YOU, BUT FIRST A WIFE IS

TOLD HER HUSBAND HAS 24

HOURS LEFT TO LIVE.

HIS BRAIN WAS ALREADY

SWELLING.

AND THEY HAD SAID THAT IF IT

DOESN'T STOP ON ITS OWN, HE

WILL PASS WITHIN 24 HOURS.

IT WAS A SHOCK.

Terry: FIND OUT WHAT

SHE DID TO SAVE HIM.

THAT'S NEXT.

Andrew: SEAN MITCHELL

IS THE CHAPLAIN FOR THE SAN

DIEGO CHARGERS.

DURING FOOTBALL SEASON,

YOU'LL SEE HIM ON THE SIDES

ROOTING FOR THE TEAM.

BUT A FEW YEARS AGO, HE HAD

PEOPLE ROOTING FOR HIM AS HE

WAS FIGHTING FOR HIS WIFE.

WHEN SEAN CAME HOME AND

CRASHED ON HIS SOFA, HIS

WIFE KNEW SOMETHING WAS

WRONG.

HE WAS SLURRING HIS

SENTENCES, AND I KNEW THAT

WAS A SYMPTOM OF A STROKE.

Reporter: SEAN WAS

RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL,

WHERE DOCTORS DISCOVERED HE

WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A

MASSIVE STROKE.

NORMALLY THEY WOULD

DRILL, BUT IT WAS TOO DEEP

TO DRILL, AND IT HAD BEEN

GOING ON SINCE EVIDENTLY

THIS MORNING.

HIS BRAIN WAS ALREADY

SWELLING.

THEY SAID IF IT DOESN'T STOP

ON ITS OWN, HE WILL PASS IN

24 HOURS.

IT WAS A SHOCK, BUT AT THE

SAME TIME, IT DIDN'T SEEM

REAL.

Reporter: SEAN'S

DOCTOR, DR. MARK STANGLER,

REMEMBERS GETTING A CALL

FROM THE HOSPITAL

PHYSICIAN.

HE KNEW THAT PASTOR SEAN

WAS MORE THAN A PATIENT OF

MINE.

HE WAS A FRIEND.

HE SAID, SORRY TO TELL YOU

THIS, BUT I DON'T THINK HE

WILL BE AROUND IN THE

MORNING.

Reporter: WORD QUICKLY

GOT AROUND THE CHURCH.

SOMEONE CAME TO OUR HOME

AND GAVE US THE NEWS THAT

PASTOR SEAN HAD HAD THIS

TRAUMATIC THING HAPPEN.

AND THEY SAID THERE WAS A

PRAYER VIGIL GOING ON.

AND SO WE WENT OVER

IMMEDIATELY.

Reporter: LAURIE

REMEMBER WHAT SEAN TOLD HER

GOD REVEALED TO HIM EARLIER

THAT MONTH.

SEAN SAID THE LORD

REVEALED TO HIM THIS WOULD

BE THE YEAR OF NEW

BEGINNINGS.

AND SO I THOUGHT, HOW COULD

IT BE A NEW YEAR IF HE

WASN'T HERE.

I WAS EXPECTING HE

WOULDN'T BE ALIVE.

AND I WAS THERE TO HELP

CONSOLE THEM, BUT, OF

COURSE, HAVING HOPE GOD

WOULD SAVE AND PROLONG THIS

LIFE.

Reporter: THE CHURCH

CONTINUED PRAYING, KNOWING

IT WOULD TAKE A MIRACLE FOR

SEAN TO LIVE THROUGH THE

NIGHT.

WITH A HEMORRHAGE THAT

BAD, NORMALLY A PERSON

WOULDN'T SURVIVE.

BUT BEYOND THAT, MOST PEOPLE

WOULD HAVE LASTING EFFECTS.

THEY WOULD HAVE PROBLEMS

WALKING, TROUBLE SPEAKING,

MEMORY PROBLEMS.

WE FELT IT WAS CRITICAL

TO GET RIGHT ON IT WITH

PRAYER, AND TO REACH OUT AND

TO JUST TELL GOD THAT WE

STILL NEEDED HIM WITH US.

Reporter: THE NEXT

MORNING DOCTORS WERE

SHOCKED.

NOT ONLY WAS SEAN ALIVE, THE

BLEEDING IN HIS BRAIN HAD

STOPPED.

YOU DON'T REALLY

ATTRIBUTE IT TO A MIRACLE,

BUT IN MEDICINE THERE WAS NO

TREATMENT FOR IT.

IT WAS UNTREATABLE.

Reporter: BUT SEAN

DIDN'T JUST SURVIVE THE

NIGHT.

IN TIME, HE MADE A FULL

RECOVERY.

I SENSED MY LORD WAS

THERE.

HE WAS LOOKING OUT FOR ME.

I WENT TO SLEEP THAT NIGHT,

AND I WOKE UP THE NEXT DAY,

AND DR. JESUS HAD STOPPED

THE BLEEDING.

I WAS THE RECIPIENT OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN OUR

CHURCH THAT WERE BANGING ON

HEAVEN'S DOOR FOR ME.

Reporter: TODAY SEAN IS

BACK IN THE PULPIT

PREACHING.

HE IS TRULY GRATEFUL TO GOD

FOR A PRAYING CHURCH THAT

PETITIONED HEAVEN WHEN HIS

LIFE HUNG IN THE BALANCE.

PRAYER NEEDS TO BE A

FIRST PRIORITY, AND NOT A

LAST RESORT.

WHEN DOCTORS END UP SAYING,

IT'S IN GOD'S HANDS, IT

SHOULD BE PLACED IN GOD'S

HANDS IN THE FIRST PLACE.

I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR A CHURCH

THAT IMMEDIATELY WENT INTO

PRAYER.

IF YOU SEE PASTOR SEAN

TODAY, YOU WOULDN'T KNOW HE

HAD A STROKE.

WE WOULD EXPECT HIM TO HAVE

A FULL LIFE SPAN AND BE ABLE

TO PREACH FOR MANY YEARS TO

COME.

Reporter: SEAN AND

LAURIE KNOW THAT GOD STILL

HAS A PURPOSE FOR HIS LIFE.

HE WILL BE ALIVE UNTIL

THE LORD CHOOSES TO TAKE

HIM.

I THINK, LORD WILLING, IT IS

GOING TO BE A LONG TIME FROM

NOW.

I REALIZE I'M HERE FOR A

REASON.

EVERY BREATH IS A GIFT FROM

HIM, A HEARTBEAT IS A GIFT

FROM OUR LORD.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE THE REST

OF MY LIFE THE BEST OF MY

LIFE FOR HIM.

Andrew: WE HEARD SEAN

SAY HE FELT THE PRESENCE OF

JESUS.

IT REMINDED ME OF WHEN JESUS

WAS SLEEPING IN THE BOAT AND

HIS DISCIPLES WOKE HIM UP.

AND THEY SAID, THERE IS A

STORM.

THERE IS A STORM.

ARE YOU GOING TO JUST LET US

DIE?

AND HE SAID, WHY ARE YOU SO

AFRAID.

I'M IN YOUR PRESENCE.

AND IT IS IN THE PRESENCE OF

JESUS THAT WE FIND HEALING.

Terry: THAT'S SUCH A

PICTURE OF LIFE FOR US.

HE WAS IN THE BOAT WITH

HIM.

IF THE BOAT WAS GOING DOWN,

HE WAS IN AS MUCH TROUBLE AS

THEY.

AND HE HAD THE POWER TO

CHANGE THINGS.

TODAY MAYBE SOME OF YOU ARE

GOING THROUGH SOME STORMS OF

YOUR OWN, AND THE MESSAGE WE

WANT TO CLEARLY BRING TO YOU

WITH THESE STORIES IS THAT

JESUS IS IN YOUR BOAT, AND

THAT FEAR DOES NOT HAVE TO

DOMINATE YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCES.

BUT HE IS GOING TO ACT ON

YOUR BEHALF BECAUSE HE LOVES

YOU.

YOU BELONG TO HIM.

AND HE CARES FOR YOU.

WE'RE "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE," AND WE DO WANT

TO PRAY FOR YOU TODAY.

WE'RE GOING TO GO TO JESSICA

TO SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING

ONLINE.

TERRY, WE HAVE SOME

PRAYERS THAT CAME IN THROUGH

Facebook.

ANN SAYS, "PLEASE PRAY FOR

ME FOR A MIRACLE HEALING FOR

MY DAUGHTER, JOY.

SHE HAS INCURABLE STAGE FOUR

CARCINOMA OF THE RIGHT LUNG

AND IT HAS SPREAD TO HER

BRAIN, LIVER, AND KIDNEYS.

WE REALLY NEED GOD TO MOVE

AND DO A MIRACLE."

CHARLOTTE SAYS, "I NEED

PRAYER FOR MY FAMILY.

ONE OF MY DAUGHTERS IS AN

ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP, AND MY

OTHER DAUGHTER HAS M.S., AND

MY GRANDMOTHER HAS JUST BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH BIPOLAR AND

IS ACTING OUT.

PLEASE PRAY THAT GOD WILL

HEAR MY PRAYER AND THE LORD

WILL TRANSFORM MY FAMILY."

Terry: WE WANT TO PRAY

FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

ANN, LET ME PRAY FOR YOU AND

YOUR DAUGHTER, JOY.

SCRIPTURE SAYS OUR BODIES

ARE FEARFULLY AND

WONDERFULLY MADE, AND GOD

HAS CREATED THEM TO HEAL

WHEN THERE IS A NEED TO

HEAL.

AND THAT IS HIS PERFECT

WILL.

SO LET'S PRAY THAT FOR JOY

TODAY.

FATHER, WE JUST LIFT UP

ANN'S DAUGHTER TO YOU.

AND, LAUDER LORD, WE REJECT

THE DIAGNOSIS THAT WHAT SHE

HAS IS INCURABLE.

IT DOESN'T MATTER TO YOU,

LORD, THAT IT SPREAD

ANYWHERE IN HER BODY.

YOU ARE MORE THAN CAPABLE.

YOU KNOW THE NUMBER OF HAIRS

ON HER HEAD.

AND SO, GOD, AS FAMILY AND

FRIENDS, WE LIFT JOY UP TO

YOU AND WE PLACE HER ON THE

ALTER BEFORE YOU TODAY.

AND WE SAY TO JOY'S BODY,

BODY, ALIGN YOURSELF WITH

THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD.

WE PRAY THAT THE CANCER

CELLS WOULD BE DESTROYED AS

HER BODY REACTS AND ACTS AS

IT WAS CREATED TO DO.

WE PRAY THAT EVERYTHING THAT

NEEDS TO HAPPEN FOR THAT

CANCER TO BE DESTROYED AND

FOR HER TO LIVE AND TO

THRIVE AND TO DECLARE YOUR

GOODNESS, GOD, WOULD TAKE

PLACE IN JOY'S BODY RIGHT

NOW.

YOU SAID WHERE TWO ARE MORE

ARE GATHERED IN YOUR NAME,

YOU'RE THERE IN THE MIDST OF

THEM.

SO WE LIFT UP YOUR DAUGHTER,

JOY, FOR TOTAL AND COMPLETE

HEALING.

AND FOR ANN TO HAVE THE

STRENGTH TO CARRY ON.

GOD, WE STAND ON THIS, ON

YOUR WORD, ON YOUR PROMISES,

AND WHO YOU ARE AS OUR

FATHER AND WHO YOU ARE AS

OUR LIVING GOD.

WE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE,

LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Andrew: FATHER GOD, IN

THE NAME OF JESUS, WE PRAY

FOR CHARLOTTE FOR THE

DAUGHTER IN AN ABUSIVE

RELATIONSHIP AND ANOTHER

DAUGHTER'S ILLNESS, AND A

GRANDMOTHER.

YOU TELL US TO BE ANXIOUS

FOR NOTHING.

WE ARE REMINDED OF IT TODAY,

BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING.

YOU SAY THAT THE PEACE YOU

GIVE IS NOT LIKE THE PEACE

THE WORLD KNOWS, AND THAT

THIS IS A GIFT FOR US.

AND WE'RE NOT TO BE TROUBLED

NOR AFRAID.

FATHER, WE CLING TO THESE

PROMISES FROM YOU TODAY,

THAT WE ARE NOT TO BE

ANXIOUS.

YOU HAVE NOT GIVEN US A

SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF

POWER, LOVE, AND SOUND

MIND.

JESUS, WE KNOW YOU ARE

CAPABLE.

WE KNOW WE CAN LAY THESE

THINGS BEFORE YOU, FATHER

GOD, AND FOR OUR AUDIENCE

WATCHING NOW WE PRAY FOR AN

ENCOUNTER WITH YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

AMEN.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE FURTHER

PRAYER, PLEASE GIVE US A

CALL AT 1-888-777-1999.

WE'D LOVE TO PRAY FOR YOU

MORE.

PETER PUTNAM WAS A BODY

BUILDER WITH A BRIGHT

FUTURE, UNTIL HIS BODY BEGAN

TO BREAK DOWN.

I GRADUALLY BEGAN TO

NOTICE PAIN IN MY SHOULDER.

THE PAIN WAS SO SEVERE, I

WAS REALLY CONCERNED AND

SCARED.

Andrew: FIND OUT HOW HE

IS BACK TO PUMPING IRON

WITHOUT EVER SEEING A

DOCTOR, WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: HE'S HELD THE

TITLE OF MR. U.S.A., AND

MR. AMERICA, BUT A COUPLE OF

YEARS AGO, BODY BUILDER

PETER PUTNAM THOUGHT HIS

WEIGHTLIFTING DAYS WERE

OVER.

I LIVED THE DREAM, PER

SE.

I WAS A FORMER PROFESSIONAL

BODY BUILDER.

I WAS WELL-KNOWN.

I HAD A LOT OF NOTORIETY,

MAGAZINE COVERS, TITLES,

FANS.

AS I TRANSITIONED AWAY FROM

PROFESSIONAL BODY BUILDING,

I WAS NO LONGER WAS

COMPETING, BUT I CONTINUED

TO DO HEAVY LIFTING.

BUT I GRADUALLY NOTICED PAIN

IN MY SHOULDER.

IT KEPT GETTING WORSE AND

WORSE, WHERE I LITERALLY HAD

TO AVOID TRAINING THE

SHOULDERS.

OVER A YEAR'S TIME IT BECAME

REALLY DEBILITATING.

AND THEN WHEN IT STARTED

AFFECTING ME OUTSIDE THE

GYM, JUST DOING DAY TO DAY

ACTIVITY, WAKING UP IN THE

MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT BECAUSE

THE PAIN WAS SO INTENSE, I

WAS REALLY SCARED.

I COULDN'T IMAGINE NOT BEING

ABLE TO DO THE THING THAT I

LOVED THE MOST.

PRETTY MUCH DAILY I WOULD

PRAY FOR MY SHOULDER.

I WOULD LAY MY HAND ON MY

SHOULDER AND COMMAND THE

PAIN TO LEAVE.

I BELIEVED IT WOULD BE

HEALED.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW LONG IT

WOULD TAKE, BUT I NEVER,

EVER GAVE UP FAITH.

I'VE BEEN WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" FOR YEARS.

SO ON MAY 2nd, I STARTED

OUT MY DAY LIKE ANY OTHER

DAY, EATING BREAKFAST AND

WATCHING CBN.

GORDON WAS ABOUT TO GO INTO

THE WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE.

I DECIDED AT THAT MOMENT TO

DO SOMETHING I HAD NEVER

DONE BEFORE, WHICH WAS TO

JOIN IN WITH AGREEMENT AND

PRAY WITH GORDON.

Gordon: SOMEONE ELSE,

WITH A RIGHT SHOULDER THAT

YOU'VE HAD TORN TENDONS IN,

AND THE LORD IS HEALING ALL

OF IT.

IN THAT MOMENT, I FELT

THE HOLY SPIRIT COME ALL

OVER ME, AND I RECEIVED THAT

HEALING.

Gordon: WHAT YOU

COULDN'T DO BEFORE, DO IT

NOW.

SINCE THAT DAY, I'VE BEEN

ABLE TO DO ALL OF THE

ACTIVITIES I WASN'T ABLE TO

DO.

THE PAIN WAS EXCRUCIATING.

IT WAS GONE.

ALL OF THE HEAVY LIFTING,

HUNDREDS OF POUNDS.

THE SAME SHOULDER THAT

COULDN'T DO THOSE BEFORE WAS

ABLE TO DO THEM AGAIN.

IT IS JUST AMAZING TO KNOW I

CAN BE BACK IN THE GYM AND

DOING THE THING THAT I

LOVE.

WHAT CHRIST DID AT THE

CROSS, THE FINISHED WORK AT

THE CROSS, WHEN HE SAID IT

IS FINISHED, THAT SICKNESS,

THAT DISEASE, THAT DEATH --

BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH

GOD.

HE DID IT FOR ME, AND HE CAN

DO IT FOR OTHERS.

Terry: AND THE GREAT

THING IS HE WANTS TO DO IT.

YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE THINGS

THAT WE LOVE ABOUT BEING A

PART OF THIS PROGRAM, AND I

HOPE YOU LOVE ABOUT WATCHING

IT, IS THE OPPORTUNITY THAT

WE HAVE TO REINFORCE TO EACH

OTHER HOW GREAT OUR GOD IS,

HOW BIG HE IS, HIS

FAITHFULNESS.

AND WE CAN COME TOGETHER

DAILY AND SHARE THAT TRUTH.

THE BIBLE SAYS GOD PUTS THE

LONELY IN FAMILIES.

AND WE ARE ALL THE FAMILY OF

GOD.

PART OF THE PURPOSE OF THIS

PROGRAM AND OF "THE 700

CLUB" IS TO BUILD THE FAITH

OF ALL OF THE CHILDREN OF

GOD SO WE CAN WALK OUT IN

THE NAME OF JESUS, THE

THINGS THAT HE HAS ASKED US

TO DO IN OUR LIVES.

WE WANT TO ASK YOU TO HELP

US BRING THAT MESSAGE TO

PEOPLE.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

THAT'S HOW WE'RE ON THE AIR

EVERY DAY.

THAT'S HOW WE'RE ABLE TO DO

THE THINGS AROUND THE WORLD

THAT WE DO.

IT IS BECAUSE WE ALL LINK

TOGETHER AND BECOME FAMILY

IN A SENSE AS WELL, TO SAY

WE WANT TO TOUCH THE WORLD

WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS

CHRIST, WITH THE HOPE THAT

COMES FROM KNOWING AND

LOVING HIM.

IT'S 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

BUT YOU'LL BE JOINING

THOUSANDS OF US WHO ARE OUT

TO MAKE THAT KIND OF A

DIFFERENCE.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-888-777-1999.

OR LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

ANDREW.

Andrew: WE STILL HAVE

SOME TIME FOR A VIEWER

QUESTION.

LET'S GO TO JESSICA.

WE HAVE ONE QUESTION IN

FROM MIKE, AND HE SAYS, "I

WATCH THE SHOW AND SEE

PEOPLE GET HEALED

INSTANTLY.

I RECENTLY FELL AND BUSTED

MY KNEE AND I'M IN A LOT

OF PAIN.

I HAVE A FULL SCHOLARSHIP TO

A GREAT UNIVERSITY, AND MY

COACH SAYS I NEI NEED A

MIRACLE HEALING BY

SEPTEMBER.

CAN GOD REALLY DO THIS FOR

ME?"

Andrew: YES, MICHAEL,

HE CAN.

AT THE SAME TIME, DIG INTO

THE WORD OF GOD AND SAY,

WHAT ARE YOU TEACHING ME

DURING THIS PERIOD OF TIME.

Terry: AND WE TEND TO

HAVE OUR PLANS -- NOT THAT

GOD'S PLAN ISN'T FOR YOU TO

GO TO THIS COLLEGE OR TO

PLAY SOCCER, BUT HE LOVES

WHEN WE STOP AND SAY, WHAT

DO YOU WANT, GOD?

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

I WOULD ENCOURAGE TO DO WHAT

ANDREW WAS SAYING, FIND OUT

WHAT GOD'S PURPOSE AND

AGENDA FOR YOU IS.

Andrew: WE LEAVE YOU

WITH A VERSE FROM JAMES 1:

6: "BUT LET HIM ASK IN

FAITH, WITH NO DOUBTING.

FOR HE WHO DOUBTS IS LIKE A

WAVE OF THE SEA, DRIVEN AND

TOSSED BY THE WIND" WE'LL

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
