WELCOME TO THIS EDITION

OF "NEWSWATCH," I'M HEATHER

SELLS.

George: AND I'M GEORGE

THOMAS.

PROTESTS ERUPTED NATIONWIDE

LATE LAST NIGHT AFTER A NEW

YORK GRAND JURY DECIDED NOT

TO INDICT A WHITE POLICE

OFFICER IN THE DEATH OF AN

UNARMED BLACK MAN.

THE OFFICER REPORTEDLY

PLACED THE VICTIM IN A

CHOKEHOLD.

NOW AS THE PROTESTS GROW,

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS

ORDERING AN INVESTIGATION

INTO THE INCIDENT.

WHO GIVES YOU THE RIGHT

TO CHOKE PEOPLE?

WHEN THE PEOPLE ARE

SCARED OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE

SUPPOSED TO PROTECT THEM,

THEN YOU KNOW SOMETHING IS

WRONG.

George: OUTRAGE AND

CONDEMNATION, THEY CHARGED A

WHITE NEW YORK CITY POLICE

OFFICER OVER THE DEATH OF

ERIC GARNER, AN

AFRICAN-AMERICAN MAN.

IT HAS COME TO THE POINT

WHERE IT IS THE LAST STRAW.

George: THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT IS NOW GETTING

INVOLVED IN THE CASE.

I'M HERE TO ANNOUNCE THAT

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT WILL

PROCEED WITH A FEDERAL CIVIL

RIGHTS INVESTIGATION INTO

MR. GARNER'S DEATH.

George: ON JULY 17th,

OFFICER DANIC DANIEL

PANTALEO WAS CAPTURED ON

VIDEO USING A CHOKEHOLD.

THE 400-POUND ASTHMATIC WAS

EVENTUALLY WRESTLED TO THE

GROUND AND PLACED IN

HANDCUFFS.

BUT THE VIDEO ALSO SHOWED

GARNER REPEATEDLY

GASPING, "I CAN'T BREATHE,"

AS THE OFFICERS TOOK HIM

DOWN.

EVEN THOUGH THE DEATH WAS

RULED A HOMICIDE CAUSED BY

COMPRESSION OF HIS THREAT

AND CHEST, THE GRAND JURY

DECIDED NOT TO INDICT THE

OFFICER.

THAT DECISION IS DRAWING

CRITICISM FROM BOTH SIDES OF

THE SPECTRUM.

KEN WHITE TWEETED, "I DON'T

LIKE ERIC HOLDER, AND IN

GENERAL DON'T LIKE THE FEDS

DOUBLING UP, BUT THIS CASE

WARRANTS IT."

CHARLES SAID, "I THINK

ANYBODY WHO LOOKS AT THE

VIDEO WOULD THINK THIS IS A

WRONG JUDGMENT."

THE VERDICT TOUCHED OFF A

WAVE OF PROTESTS IN MANY

CITIES.

IT COMES OVER A WEEK AFTER A

SIMILAR GRAND JURY IN

MISSOURI RULED NOT TO INDICT

A WHITE POLICE OFFICER IN

THE SHOOTING OF MICHAEL

BROWN.

BY THE WAY, DANIEL PANTALEO

ISSUED AN APOLOGY TO THE

VICTIM'S FAMILY, BUT

GARNER'S VICTIM SAID THE

TIME FOR REMORSE WOULD HAVE

BEEN WHEN MY HUSBAND WAS

YELLING TO BREATHE.

Heather: MORE BACKLASH

AGAINST THE PRESIDENT'S

EXECUTIVE IMMIGRATION

ORDER.

AS PROMISED, GREG ABBOTT

FILED SUIT AGAINST THE

MEASURE ON WEDNESDAY.

16 OTHER STATES ARE ALSO

JOINING THE LAWSUIT.

TEXAS STATE LEADERS SAY THE

PRESIDENT'S ACTION COULD

LEAD TO A MASS MIGRATION OF

UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS INTO

THE U.S.

GOVERNOR RICK PERRY SAYS A

FLOOD OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

LAST SUMMER LEFT BORDER

AGENTS OVERWHELMED AND

UNPREPARED.

THAT IS WHY TODAY I HAVE

ISSUED AN EXECUTIVE ORDER

REQUIRING ALL STATE

AGENCIES, UNDER THE

DIRECTION OF MY OFFICE, TO

UTILIZE AND VERIFY CURRENT

STATUS OF CURRENT AND

PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYEES.

Heather: THE

PRESIDENT'S ORDER

TEMPORARILY DEFERS THE

DEPORTATION OF UP TO FIVE

MILLION UNDOCUMENTED

IMMIGRANTS.

George: A SUPREME COURT

CASE ABOUT EMPLOYER

ACCOMMODATIONS FOR PREGNANT

WOMEN -- THE CASE CENTERS ON

A FORMER U.P.S. DRIVER WHO

BECAME PREGNANT IN 2006.

PEGGY YOUNG LOST THE JOB SHE

HAD FOR FOUR YEARS WHEN SHE

REQUESTED TEMPORARY LIGHT

DUTY WORK DURING HER

PREGNANCY.

AND SHE ALSO LOST HER HEALTH

INSURANCE.

NOW YOUNG, ALONG WITH

PRO-LIFE AND PRO-CHOICE

LEADERS, ALL CLAIM THAT WAS

A VIOLATION OF THE PREGNANCY

DISCRIMINATION ACT.

IT CAN'T BE RIGHT TO MAKE

ME CHOOSE BETWEEN SUPPORTING

MY FAMILY OR STARTING MY

FAMILY.

I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO

BOTH.

THE UNITED PARS PARCEL

SERVICE ACCOMMODATES DRUNK

DRIVERS, WHO DESTROY LIFE,

BUT THEY DON'T ACCOMMODATE

GIVING LIFE.

George: U.P.S. ARGUES

THE ACT WAS INTENDED TO KEEP

EMPLOYERS FROM

DISCRIMINATING WHEN HIRING

PREGNANT WORKERS.

THE COURT IS EXPECTED TO

MAKE A RULING NEXT JUNE.

Heather: AN AMERICAN

COUPLE IS FINALLY FREE AFTER

A TWO-YEAR ORDEAL WITH THE

GOVERNMENT OF QATAR.

MATTHEW AND GRACE WONG WERE

CLEAR OF CHARGES IN THEIR

ADOPTEADOPTED DAUGHTER'S

DEATH LAST WEEK.

BUT WHEN THEY TRIED TO LEAVE

THE COUNTRY, THEY WERE HELD

IN THE AIRPORT.

YESTERDAY THEY WERE TOLD

THEY COULD LEAVE QATAR.

THE COUPLE WAS ARRESTED IN

2013 AFTER THEIR ADOPTIVE

DAUGHTER DIED

UNEXPECTANTLY.

THEY SAY THEY ARE RELIEVED

AND ARE HEADING HOME TO

LOS ANGELES.

George: al-QAEDA IN

YEMEN IS THREATENING THE

LIFE OF A KIDNAPPED

JOURNALIST.

THEY HAVE VIDEO SHOWING LUKE

SOMERS, WHO WAS KIDNAPPED IN

YEMEN IN 2013.

IN THE VIDEO, al-QAEDA

SAYS SOMERS WILL MEET

HIS, QUOTE,"FATE" IF THE

DEMANDS ARE NOT MET.

IN THE VIDEO, SOMERS

SAYS, "I AM CERTAIN THAT MY

LIFE IS IN DANGER."

Heather: AMERICA'S

INFLUENCE IS FADING AND THE

WORLD IS GETTING WORSE

BECAUSE OF IT.

THAT IS THE ASSESSMENT BY

SENATOR TED CRUZ AND OTHERS

WHO SAY THE U.S. NEEDS TO

STEP UP ITS GLOBAL VOLVE

INVOLVEMENT.

IT CAME AS PU PUNDITS IN

WASHINGTONIN WASHINGTON

MET.

Reporter: AT A

WASHINGTON EVENT MEANT TO

EXAMINE WHY THE FOREIGN

POLICY SHOULD LOOK LIKE, TED

CRUZ DECLARED IT SHOULDN'T

LOOK LIKE TODAY'S, WITH

AMERICA NO LONGER A ROBUST

LEADER OF THE WORLD.

AND INTO THAT VACUUM HAVE

STEPPED NATIONS LIKE RUSSIA,

CHINA, AND IRAN, AND IT HAS

NOT MADE THE WORLD A SAFER

PLACE.

Reporter: CRUZ EVEN

JOKED ABOUT PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S LACK OF LEADING ON

THE WORLD'S STAGE.

JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO

JIMMY CARTER CRITICIZED THIS

PRESIDENT FOR BEING WEAK ON

FOREIGN POLICY.

[LAUGHTER]

HOLY COW!

Reporter: ANOTHER

RUSSIAN LAWMAKER LAID OUT

THE STARK CONTRAST AND

VISIONS FOR AMERICAN

ACTION.

ON THE ONE HAND THERE IS

A VIEW WE ONLY ACT WHEN IT

IS IN OUR ABSOLUTE CORE

INTEREST.

IF CANADA OR MEXICO IS

ATTACKING US, THEN WE'LL

ACT.

OTHERWISE NOWHERE ELSE,

REALLY.

AND THEN YOU HAVE THE BELIEF

IN MORE WHAT I AM, THAT AN

ENGAGED AMERICA IS GOOD FOR

THE WHOLE WORLD.

Reporter: A COUPLE OF

PANELISTS URGED ACTIONS.

BEFORE WE JUMP IN

SOMETHING, LET'S TRY TO

REMEMBER SOME OF THE LESSONS

SINCE THE END OF THE COLD

WAR.

Reporter: THERE WAS

TALK THAT AMERICA OFTEN

TAKES ACTIONS WITHOUT

CONSIDERING WHAT THE

REACTIONS MIGHT BE.

THIS MAN BROUGHT UP THE EVIL

ACTS OF ISIS BEHEADINGS.

WE DO A DRONE STRIKE AND

SAY, WE CAN REACH OUT AND

TOUCH YOU.

AND THEN THEY SAY, WATCH

THIS, THEY CUT SOMEBODY'S

HEAD OFF AND SAY, WE CAN

REACH OUT AND TOUCH YOU,

TOO.

IT IS THE JOB OF OUR

MILITARY TO HUNT DOWN OUR

ENEMIES AND KILL THEM BEFORE

THEY KILL US.

I THINK WE MIGHT HAVE TO

CONTEMPLATE DOING A FEW

WEEKS OF SUSTAINED

OPERATIONS ARRANGED WITH

IRAQI SPECIAL FORCES ONCE

THE COUNTER-OFFENSIVE

BEGINS.

Reporter: AMERICA MUST

ENGAGE BECAUSE THERE IS NO

ALTERNATIVE.

THESE PROBLEMS ARE IN

INSOLUABLE WITHOUT

WASHINGTON.

George: THE NUMBER OF

SEXUAL ASSAULTS BY MILITARY

SERVICE MEMBERS HAS

INCREASED AGAIN THIS YEAR BY

8%.

IT COMES ON THE HEELS OF A

50% REPORTING SPIKE LAST

YEAR.

MORE THAN 6,000 VICTIMS

REPORTED ASSAULTS IN 2014,

COMPARED TO 5500 LAST YEAR.

AN ANONYMOUS SERVICE

SUGGESTS VICTIMS ARE

BECOMING MORE WILLING TO

FILE COMPLAINTS.

HOWEVER, IT ALSO SHOWS THAT

60% OF THE WOMEN WHO FILE

COMPLAINTS ALSO REPORT

EXPERIENCING RETALIATION.

Heather: THE POPE AND

LEADERS OF HALF A DOZEN

DIFFERENT FAITHS ARE JOINING

TOGETHER TO FIGHT MODERN-DAY

SLAVERY.

AT A VATICAN CEREMONY THIS

WEEK, THEY SIGNED A

DECLARATION AGREEING TO FREE

THE 35 MILLION PEOPLE

ENSLAVED AROUND THE WORLD BY

2020.

AND THEY AGREED THAT FORCED

LABOR AND PROSTITUTION ARE

CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY.

THE SIGNERS INCLUDED THE

ANGLICAN ARCHBISHOP AND

HIGH-PROFILE LEADERS FROM

HINDU, BUDDHIST, SHIITE, AND

SUNNI MUSLIM FAITHS.

George: AUTHORITIES ARE

INVESTIGATING A STRING OF

ARS SONARSONS AT THREE

DELAWARE CHURCHES.

THE FIRST HAPPENED AT THE

HEALING HANDS CHRISTIAN

CHURCH, WHICH WAS COMPLETELY

DESTROYED.

AS CREWS WERE BATTLING THE

BLAZE, ANOTHER FIRE WAS

REPORTED AT THE MANSHIP

CHAPEL.

AND THE LAST ONE CAME AT

5:30 AT THE LAW'S MENNONITE

CHURCH.

HEALING HANDS' PASTOR WILBER

MOORE SAYS HE WILL REBUILD.

Heather: CELEBRATED

PASTOR DR. MYLES MONROE AND

HIS WIFE, RUTH, ARE BEING

LAID TO REST TODAY IN A

STATE RECOGNIZED FUNERAL IN

THE BAHAMAS.

THE FUNERAL COMES NEARLY A

MONTH AFTER THE COUPLE DIED

IN A PLANE CRASH, ALONG WITH

EIGHT OTHERS FROM THEIR

CHURCH.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS A LOOK AT

THE BAHAMAS' NATIVE BEHIND

THAT ORGANIZATION.

Reporter: PERRY CHRISTY

CALLED DR. MYLES MONROE,

QUOTE,"INDISPUTABLELY ONE OF

THE GLOBALLY RECOGNIZABLE

RELIGIOUS LEADERS OUR NATION

HAS EVER PRODUCED."

AND THE STORY OF THAT RISE

TO PROMINENCE IS

INCREDIBLE.

HE WAS BORN TO POOR PARENTS

IN 1954, ONE OF 11

CHILDREN.

I WAS BORN TO TRANSFORM

FOLLOWERS INTO LEADERS AND

LEADERS INTO AGENTS OF

CHANGE.

Reporter: MYLES MONROE

DISCOVERED HIS LIFE'S

PURPOSE AT JUST 13, NOT LONG

AFTER A SCHOOL TEACHER TOLD

HIM HE WAS NOTHING AND HE

WOULD NEVER AMOUNT TO

ANYTHING.

IT'S A STORY HE SHARED ON

CBN'S "TURNING POINT"

PROGRAM.

I RAN HOME TO THAT HOUSE

AND FELL BEFORE MY MOTHER

AND BEGAN TO CRY.

AND MY MOTHER DID SOMETHING

THAT I HOPE EVERY MOTHER

DOES.

SHE LOOKED AT ME, AND SHE

HELD ME VERY CLOSE AND SHE

SHOOK ME.

SHE SAYS, FIRST OF ALL,

DON'T YOU EVER SAY THAT

AGAIN.

AND SHE GAVE ME HER BIG

BIBLE.

EPHESIANS 20, SHE SAYS YOU

GO IN THAT LITTLE ROOM AND

YOU READ THAT.

I WENT AND BEGAN TO READ

THAT SCRIPTURE.

AND MY TEARS WERE DROPPING

ON THE PAGE AS I REMEMBER

WHAT THE TEACHER SAID TO

ME.

THAT SCRIPTURE SAID ONE

THING, "UNTO HIM WHO IS ABLE

TO DO EXCEEDINGLY,

ABUNDANTLY ABOVE, FAR BEYOND

ALL YOU COULD EVER ASK,

THINK, OR IMAGINE, ACCORDING

TO THE POWER THAT WORKS IN

YOU."

I REMEMBER MY TEARS BEGAN TO

TURN INTO LAUGHTER.

Reporter: THAT

13-YEAR-OLD GREW UP AND LEFT

THE BAHAMAS IN THE

MID-1970s TO ATTEND ORAL

ROBERTS UNIVERSITY IN TULSA,

OKLAHOMA.

THERE HE EARNED BACHELOR'S,

MASTER'S, AND DO DOCTORIAL

DEGREES.

HE AND HIS WIFE, RUTH, LED

THE CHURCH TOGETHER.

TO CULTIVATE MEANS TO

BRING OUT THE BEST IN

EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE

AROUND YOU.

Reporter: BUT HE DIDN'T

REALLY THINK ABOUT HIMSELF

AS A PREACHER.

I NEVER DESIRED TO BE A

MINISTER.

I DESIRED TO HELP PEOPLE.

WE ARE HERE, SENT FROM OUR

HEAVENLY HOME, TO COLONIZE

EARTH FOR THE KINGDOM OF

HEAVEN.

Reporter: WITH THAT

MISSION IN MIND, MONROE

WROTE MORE THAN A DOZEN

BEST-SELLING BOOKS.

HIS MESSAGE TOOK HIM AROUND

THE GLOBE AS A MOTIVATIONAL

SPEAKER AND BUSINESSMAN,

RUBBING SHOULDERS WITH WORLD

LEADERS.

BUT HIS TRUE PASSION WAS

GETTING ORDINARY PEOPLE TO

SEE THE LEADER INSIDE OF

THEMSELVES.

WHEN HIS PLANE CRASHED, HE

WAS HEADED TO HIS ANNUAL

LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE.

MY FRIEND, LISTEN TO ME.

YOU WERE BORN TO BE A LEADER

ON EARTH, REPRESENTING GOD.

YOU WERE BORN TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE, NOT JUST TO MAKE

A LIVING.

YOU CAME TO THIS EARTH NOT

JUST TO PAY BILLS, BUT TO

PAY YOUR DEBT TO SOCIETY,

AND TO GIVE THEM THE GOOD

NEWS, THAT THEY CAN COME

BACK TO GOD'S COUNTRY ON

EARTH.

GOD WANTS YOU TO BE AN

AMBASSADOR OF THE KINGDOM OF

HEAVEN, TO BRING HIS CULTURE

BACK TO YOUR CITY, IN EVERY

AREA OF LIFE.

Heather: AND WE WILL

HAVE A LINK TO THE STREAMING

VIDEO FROM MYLES MONROE'S

FUNERAL TODAY.

YOU CAN FIND THAT AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

George: COMING UP, HE

SURVIVED THE FIRESTORM MADE

FAMOUS BY THE MOVIE

"BLACKHAWK DOWN," ONLY TO

LOSE THE BATTLE ON THE

HOMEFRONT.

A FORMER NAVY SEAL REVEALS

HIS STORY OF REDEMPTION,

JUST AHEAD.

George: AND WELCOME

BACK TO THE BROADCAST.

HOWARD WATSON IS A DECORATED

COMBAT VETERAN, A FORMER

U.S. NAVY SEAL, A RECIPIENT

OF THE SILVER STAR AND

PURPLE HEART, AND A HERO OF

THE BATTLE AT MOGADISHU,

WHICH INSPIRED THAT FAMOUS

MOVIE "BLACKHAWK DOWN."

TAKE A LOOK.

I WAS LYING IN A DITCH IN

MOGADISHU, SOMALIA, WITH MY

LEG NEARLY BLOWN OFF.

THE BATTLE, LATER KNOWN AS

"BLACKHAWK DOWN," BLAZED

AROUND ME.

TWO AMERICAN HELICOPTERS

WERE DOWN, AND ENEMY

FIGHTERS WERE EVERYWHERE,

AND ADVANCING ON ME.

I HAD BEEN SHOT THREE

TIMES.

I WAS WEAK FROM BLOOD LOSS

AND ALMOST OUT OF

AMMUNITION.

Heather: HOWARD WHAT'S

SO WATSON IS ALSO CO-AUTHOR

OF THE BOOK "SEAL TEAM 6."

AND MARK MARTIN TALKED TO

HIM ABOUT THAT FATEFUL DAY

WHEN HE WAS WOUNDED IN

MOGADISHU.

I HAD GOTTEN TO THE POINT

IN MY LIFE WHERE I FELT I

DIDN'T NECESSARILY NEED GOD.

I HAD BEEN THROUGH THE

TRAINING, I WAS A SEAL TEAM

6 SNIPER, AND I HAD BUDDIES

GET HURT, SEEN BUDDIES GO

DOWN IN TRAINING, AND I

NEVER HAD A SCRATCH.

SO UNFORTUNATELY, I HAD

GOTTEN TO THE MINDSET WHERE

I WAS MORE THAN HUMAN.

Mark: YOU SAID THE

LONGER YOUR RECOVERY WENT

ON, THE MORE YOU BEGAN

TO, QUOTE,"LOSE THE WAR OF

THE MIND."

EXPLAIN THAT.

I HAD SOMETHING CALLED

SURVIVOR'S GUILT.

MY FRIEND, DAN BUSH, A

SNIPER, DIED THAT DAY.

WHEN I WAS SITTING IN MY

WHEELCHAIR, SHAKING MY FIST

AT GOD, FEELING SORRY FOR

MYSELF, I WAS WONDERING WHY

I WAS ALLOWED TO LIVE, AND

WHY HE WAS ALLOWED TO DIE

AND I LIVED.

Mark: HOW DID YOU

REESTABLISH THAT WALK WITH

GOD?

FIRST OF ALL, I HAD TO

QUIT BEING MAD AT GOD.

SECOND, I HAD TO FORGIVE

MYSELF.

AND THIRD, I HAD TO HOLD ALL

OF THE PEOPLE I WAS HOLDING

RESPONSIBLE FOR MY PLIGHT,

EX-WIFE, FORMER TEAMMATES,

THAT SHOULD HAVE DONE MORE

TO HELP ME, ME, ME.

I REALIZED, GET ON YOUR

KNEES, PRAY, AND COME TO THE

REELIZATIOREALIZATION THAT

WILL ONLY GET BETTER WHEN

YOU ASK FOR HELP.

THAT WAS HARD FOR ME.

YOU HAVE TO DO A LOT OF

FORGIVING AND A LOT OF

PRAYING.

AS MY BEST FRIEND SAYS, "LET

GO AND LET GOD."

AND QUIT TRYING TO CONTROL

EVERYTHING, OF COURSE, I'M A

SNIPER -- BUT IF YOU DO

THAT, IF YOU LET GO AND LET

GOD, IT IS LIKE YOU CAN

BREATHE AGAIN.

THE WEIGHT IS LIFTED OFF

YOUR SHOULDERS AND YOU CAN

GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE.

Mark: THAT IS

WONDERFUL.

I KNOW THERE IS SO MUCH MORE

TO YOUR STORY, AND YOU'VE

WRITTEN A BOOK CALLED "THE

LAST RESCUE."

I STARTED THINKING ABOUT

WRITING THE BOOK WHEN I SAW

HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE COMING

HOME FROM AFGHANISTAN, AND I

WANTED TO DO SOMETHING TO

SAY, HEY, LOOK.

YOU'RE GOING TO COME BACK.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE

PROBLEMS, TO SOME DEGREE,

ADJUSTING INTO SOCIETY.

OUR SUICIDE RATE IS TWO

PEOPLE PER DAY.

THAT IS TOTALLY

UNACCEPTABLE.

I WANTED TO SHOW THEM, HEY,

LOOK, YOU CAN COME BACK AND

OVERCOME ALMOST ANYTHING,

PTSD, ADDICTION, DIVORCE,

THINTHINKING YOUR BEST DAYS

OR BEHIND YOU.

WHEN THESE PEOPLE ARE COMING

BACK THINKING, MY PRIME WAS

LEFT IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY ON

A BATTLEFIELD, THAT'S A

PROBLEM.

THEY NEED TO REALIZE, GET

RIGHT WITH GOD, COME BACK,

GET WHATEVER HELP YOU NEED,

AND REALIZE YOUR BEST DAYS

ARE AHEAD OF YOU.

AS A CHRISTIAN, I THINK GOD

WANTS US TO BE HAPPY AND

WANTS US TO KNOW THAT THE

BEST DAYS ARE AHEAD OF US.

Mark: THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

ONCE AGAIN, THE BOOK IS

CALLED "THE LAST RESCUE."

WE CAN FIND IT AT BOOKSTORES

AND ONLINE.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

THANKS, MARK.

George: UP NEXT,

PRAYING FOR THE PEACE OF

JERUSALEM.

SEE THE NEW MINISTRIES

CONTENDING FOR THE FAITH IN

THE HEART OF THE HOLY LAND.

George: THE BIBLE

COMMANDS US IN PSALM 122: 6,

TO PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF

JERUSALEM.

Heather: NOW MORE

WORD BY STARTING PRAYER

MINISTRIES IN JERUSALEM.

HERE IS CBN NEWS MIDDLE EAST

BUREAU CHIEF CHRIS MITCHELL,

EARTH.

Reporter: DR. PAUL

DENACARAM IS THE DIRECTOR OF

THE MINISTRY THAT FOUNDED

THE PRAYER TOWER.

HE SAYS THE CENTER IS READY

FOR A NEW SEASON.

I'M LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO

COME FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD

TO COME AND PRAY IN THIS

PRAYER TOWER IN ISRAEL.

I'M LOOKING FOR A PLACE

WHERE WE COULD HOST THEM,

AND THEY COULD STAY HERE AND

PRAY.

THE VISION OF THE PRAYER

TOWER IS FOR 2 24 HOURS A

DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, FOR

PRAYER AND WORSHIP.

WE SEE ISRAEL AND THE NATION

COMING TOGETHER THROUGH THIS

PRAYER TOWER.

Reporter: THE TOWER

SERVES THE NATIONS AND THE

LOCAL BODY.

WE HAVE HAD PEOPLE FROM

KOREA, CHINA, AND THEY ARE

ALL THRILLED.

AND ALSO THE LOCAL

CONGREGATION NEED A PLACE TO

WORSHIP AND PRAY.

ISRAEL AND JERUSALEM.

SO FROM HERE WE'RE PRAYING

FOR THE NATIONS.

Reporter: FERGUSON SAYS

THE ISRAEL PRAYER TOWER IS

PART OF A GROWING MOVEMENT

OF PRAYER FOR THE PEACE OF

JERUSALEM.

I REALLY BELIEVE SINCE

1948, THE EYES OF THE CHURCH

WORLDWIDE ARE OPENING

TOWARDS GOD'S PROPHETIC

TIMETABLE, HIS PLANS FOR

ISRAEL.

AND I BELIEVE A BIG PART OF

THAT IS KIND OF ALL OF A

SUDDEN OUR EYES BEING OPEN

TO PSALM 122, THAT WE SHOULD

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF

JERUSALEM.

AND ALL WHO LOVE THEE THERE

PROSPER.

THE LORD IS SHOWING THE

NATIONS OF THE WORLD, LOOK,

FURTHER WITHOUT PRAYING FOR

ISRAEL.
