Efrem: TODAY ON

"NEWSWATCH," UP IN ARMS,

CRITICS OF THE NUCLEAR

DEAL WITH IRAN ARE

SPEAKING OUT ABOUT SIDE

DEALS IN THE PLAN.

WE'LL BREAK DOWN WHY

THEY'RE UPSET.

PLUSES, PLUS, A NEW UNDERCOVER

PLANNED PARENTHOOD VIDEO

IS RELEASED.

AND WE'LL SHOW YOU WHY IT

IS SHOCKING.

> AND WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW

THIS DRINKABLE PIECE OF

LITERATURE IS HERE.

> IF YOU THOUGHT THE

IRAN U.S. NUCLEAR DEAL

SOUNDED BAD, WELL, IT MAY

BE SOUNDING EVEN WORSE.

NEW REVELATIONS ABOUT THE

WHITE HOUSE NUCLEAR DEAL

WITH IRAN MAY HAVE CRITICS

UP IN ARMS AGAIN.

DALE HURD HAS THIS STORY.

Reporter: IT IS

LEARNED THAT IRAN WILL BE

ALLOWED TO USE ITS OWN

INSPECTORS.

UNDER A SECRET AGREEMENT

WITH A U.N. AGENCY THAT

WOULD NORMALLY DID THE

INSPECTIONS, AN IRANIAN

INSPECTION TEAM WOULD

INVESTIGATE THE NUCLEAR

SITE, WHICH HAS BEEN

LINKED TO PERSISTENT

ALLEGATIONS OF SECRET

NUCLEAR WEAPONS WORK.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT

DEFENDED THE PLAN.

WE'RE CONFIDENT IN THE

AGENCY TECHNICAL PLANS FOR

INVESTIGATING THE MILITARY

DIMENSIONS OF IRAN'S

NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

JUST AS IMPORTANTLY, THE

IAEA IS COMFORTABLE WITH

THE ARRANGEMENTS.

Reporter: BUT ED

ROYCE SAID INTERNATIONAL

INSPECTIONS SHOULD BE DONE

BY INTERNATIONAL

INSPECTORS, PERIOD.

PRESIDENT OBAMA, WHO SAYS

THE DEAL WITH IRAN IS THE

STRONGEST AGREEMENT EVER

NEGOTIATED, INSISTED THAT

THE STRENGTH OF THE ACCORD

IS THAT IT WAS NOT BUILT

ON TRUST OF THE IRANIANS,

BUT ON RELIABLE

INSPECTIONS.

IT IS DOUBTFUL CRITICS

WILL THINK IRANIAN-PICKED

INSPECTORS WILL BE

RELIABLE.

IN ISRAEL, PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE MIKE HUCKABEE

SAYS THE DEAL REPRESENTS A

CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER

TO ISRAEL AND THE UNITED

STATES.

THE IRANIANS HAVE MADE

IT VERY CLEAR FOR 36 YEARS

THAT THEIR INTENTION IS

NOT ONLY TO WIPE ISRAEL

OFF THE FACE OF THE MAP --

THEIR WORDS -- BUT ALSO TO

BRING DEATH TO AMERICA.

Reporter: AND THIS

NEW REVELATION CAN ONLY

INCREASE OPPOSITION TO THE

DEAL WITH IRAN.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE DETAILS OF

BABY BODY PART HARVESTING

AT PLANNED PARENTHOOD JUST

KEEP COMING.

THE CENTE CENTER FOR MEDICAL

PROGRESS HAS JUST RELEASED

A NEW VIDEO.

IT IS NOT EASY TO WATCH.

IT SHOWS A FORMER

PROCUREMENT TECHNICIAN

DISCUSSING HARVESTING A

BRAIN FROM A LATE-TERM

MALE BABY.

HOLLY O'DONNELL WORKED AT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD STEM

EXPRESS, AND SHE SAYS HER

SUPERVISOR CALLED HER INTO

THE LAB TO SEE SOMETHING

COOL, QUOTE,"THE ABORTED

BABIES HEART," THAT WAS

STILL BEATING.

I WAS JUST

FLABBERGASTED.

THIS IS THE CLOSEST THING

TO A BABY I'VE SEEN.

AND SHE IS, LIKE, OKAY, I

WANT TO SHOW YOU

SOMETHING.

SHE HAS ONE OF HER

INSTRUMENTS, AND SHE TAPS

THE HEART AND IT STOPS STARTS

BEATING.

I'M LOOKING AT THIS FETUS,

AND ITS HEART IS BEATING

AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO

THINK.

Efrem: O'DONNELL WAS

THEN GIVEN SCISSORS AND

TOLD SHE HAS TO CUT DOWN

THE MIDDLE OF THE BABY'S

FACE TO EXTRACT THE BRAIN.

YOU CAN SEE THE FULL VIDEO

BY VISITING OUR WEBSITE

AT cbnnews.com.

> DONALD TRUMP IS

DOUBLING DOWN ON HIS

CONTROVERSIAL IMMIGRATION

POLICY.

HIS LATEST PROPOSAL,

REVOKE THE CITIZENSHIP OF

AMERICAN-BORN CHILDREN OF

UNDOCUMENTED CITIZENS.

THE G.O.P.'S PRESIDENTIAL

FRONT-RUNNER ENVISIONS

KICKING ABOUT 11 MILLION

UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS

OUT OF THE COUNTRY.

YOU ENVISION FEDERAL

POLICE KICKING IN THE

DOORS AND DRIVING FAMILIES

OUT AND PUTTING THEM ON A

BUS.

DO YOU ENVISION THAT?

I DON'T THINK THEY HAVE

AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP, AND

IF YOU SPEAK TO SOME VERY,

VERY GOOD LAWYERS I

KNOW -- SOME WOULD

DISAGREE, BUT MANY WILL

AGREE WITH ME, THEY DO NOT

HAVE AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP.

Efrem: TRUMP HAS NOT

SAID HOW HE WOULD

IMPLEMENT HIS AMBITIOUS

IMMIGRATION PLAN.

> THE HILLARY CLINTON

E-MAIL SCANDAL HAS

CONTINUED TO GROW.

HER CAMPAIGN HAS TOLD THE

COMMITTEE THAT ALL DATA ON

HER SERVER WAS ERASED

BEFORE IT WAS RELEASED TO

THE FEDERAL INVESTIGATORS.

FEDERAL INVESTIGATORS

REQUESTED THE SERVER TO

DETERMINE IF ITS DATA WAS

SECURE.

THE DENVER FIRM CLINTON

HIRED TO OVERSEE THE

DEVICE TRANSFERRED IT TO

THE F.B.I. A WEEK AGO.

FORENSIC EXPERTS SAY THE

E-MAILS AND OTHER DATA CAN

STILL BE EXTRACTED.

> DENNY LOTTS, THE

HUSBAND OF ANN GRAHAM

LOTTS HAS PASSED AWAY.

ON HER WEBSITE, ANN

WRITES, IN PART, "HE LOST

SIGHT IN ONE EYE AND

HEARING IN ONE EAR.

HIS HEART DISEASE REQUIRED

FIVE STINTS IN HIS

ARTERIES, AND HE HAD THREE

DAYS OF DIALYSIS THREE

DAYS A WEEK, FIVE HOURS

EACH TIME, AND YET HE

NEVER COMPLAINED."

HE WAS FOUND

UNRESPONSIVE IN THE

FAMILY'S SWIMMING POOL,

AND HE DIED ON TUESDAY.

HE AND ANN HAVE BEEN

MARRIED FOR NEARLY 50

YEARS.

THEY HAVE THREE CHILDREN

TOGETHER.

DENNY LOTTS WAS 78 YEARS

OLD.

CULTURAL DIFFERENCES

AND LEAVING FAMILY BEHIND

CAN MAKE IMMIGRATION TO

ISRAEL DIFFICULT.

BUT MORE AND MORE JEWISH

AMERICANS ARE MAKING

ISRAEL THEIR PERMANENT

HOME.

CBN CORRESPONDENT JULIE

STAAL HAS THIS STORY.

Julie: SEEING JEWISH

PEOPLE RETURN TO ISRAEL IS

LIKE WATCHING BIBLE

PROPHECY UNFOLD BEFORE

YOUR EYES.

ISAIAH, JEREMIAH, AND

EZEKIEL, ALL SPEAK OF THE

JEWISH RETURN TO THE LAND.

IT IS AN EXCITING DAY.

232 IMMIGRANTS ARRIVED IN

TEL AVIV'S AIRPORT FROM

NORTH AMERICA TO MAKE

ISRAEL LIAR HOME.

Reporter: GOVERNMENT

OFFICIALS WELCOMED THE

GROUP.

I WANT TO THINK FOR A

MOMENT, EACH OF YOU, ABOUT

YOUR FATHERS, YOUR

GRANDFATHERS, YOUR GREAT

GRANDFATHERS -- ALL THOSE

GENERATIONS OF YOUR FAMILY

OF JEWS WHO ARE DREAMING

AND PRAYING IN JERUSALEM,

AND YOU DID IT.

Reporter: 19-YEAR-OLD

MAX CRESH CAME FROM

DETROIT.

HE IS JOINING THE ISRAEL

DEFENSE FORCES AS A LONE

SOLDIER OR ONE WITHOUT ANY

FAMILY HERE.

I CAME HERE.

AND I'M LEARNING IN ISRAEL

AND LIVING IN ISRAEL MADE

ME REALIZE HOW MUCH I

REALLY LOVE BEING HERE.

Julie: ALMOST 30

FAMILIES WITH 75 CHILDREN

MAKE UP THIS GROUP OF NEW

IMMIGRANTS.

THEY INCLUDE LISA AND

DAVID PARSHON, ALONG WITH

TWO CHILDREN.

IT WAS REALLY NICE TO

WATCH PEOPLE, LIKE US,

COMING OFF.

ALL HAD A SMILE ON THEIR

FACE.

IT WAS REALLY VERY

EXCITING.

Julie: THEIR OLDER

DAUGHTER, SHIRA, PAVED THE

WAY TWO YEARS AGO.

I KNOW THAT ISRAEL IS

THE PLACE TO BE.

I KNEW THAT WHEN I WAS 17

YEARS OLD.

Julie: THIS GROUP

ARRIVED ON AN L.L.FLIGHT,

CHARTERED BY AN

ORGANIZATION THAT PARTNERS

WITH THE GOVERNMENT TO

HELP NORTH AMERICAN AND

BRITISH JEWS ADJUST TO

LIFE HERE.

I JUST THINK EVERY JEW

SHOULD BE STRUGGLING WITH

THE JEWISH HOMELAND.

AND THAT IS NOT JUST A

SLOGAN.

Julie: CO-FOUNDER

RABBI HOSHUA EXPLAINED WHY

THEY COME.

YOU DON'T WANT THE

IMMIGRATION FROM AMERICA

TO BE AN ALIAH OF RUNNING

AWAY FROM SOMETHING,

STRESS, PERSECUTION.

YOU DON'T WANT THAT.

THE BEAUTY OF NORTH

AMERICAN IMMIGRATION IS

THAT PEOPLE ARE CHOOSING.

Julie: JULIE STAAL,

BEN-GURION AIRPORT, TEL

AVIV.

Efrem: BRIAN WILSON

TELLS ME ABOUT HIS JOURNEY

FROM INTERNET SENSATION TO

PROFESSIONAL GOSPEL

RECORDING ARTIST.

Efrem: A 10-YEAR-OLD

BELTS OUT A TUNE AND

DECADES LATER, THOUSANDS

ARE STILL LOGGING ON TO

SEE IT.

THAT'S THE STORY OF GOSPEL

RECORDING ARTIST BRIAN

WILSON.

HE IS ALL GROWN UP TODAY,

AND HE IS SITTING DOWN

WITH US IN STUDIO 5.

> THIS VIRAL VIDEO IS

MORE THAN 20 YEARS OLD,

WITH MORE THAN A MILLION

VIEWS.

*

Efrem: THE

POWER-PACKED VOICE IS

BRIAN WILSON AT JUST 10

YEARS OLD, IN HIS FIRST

RECORDING WITH THE

MISSISSIPPI CHILDREN'S

MASS CHOIR.

I JUST THOUGHT I WAS

SINGING WITH THE CHOIR.

I DIDN'T HAVE A CONCEPT OFú?ú?

THE IMPACT IT WOULD HAVE.ú?

Efrem: IT WAS THE

START OF A NEW 20-YEARú

RECORDING CAREER FOR THE@

GOSPEL ARTIST.

WHO'S LATEST PROJECT IS

SCALD "THE 1%."

THE GOD LORD LEAVES THE

99 TO FIND THE LOST SHEEP.

HE WOULD DO ALL THAT TO

WIN THAT ONE SOUL.

THE BLOW ALBUM IS GEARED

TOWARDS EVANGELISM AND

MEETING THAT PERSON WHERE

THEY ARE.

Efrem: YOU HAVE SAID

THIS PARTICULAR ALBUM

ISN'T NECESSARILY FOR

SOMEONE WHO GOES TO

CHURCH.

ABSOLUTELY.

Efrem: WHY IS THAT?

IN CHURCH, YOU'VE GOT

THE INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE

BEEN IN THE FAITH A LONG

TIME, AND THEY'RE WALKING

THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW

PATH, AND A LOT OF TIMES

THEY LOST WHAT IS GOING ON

IN THE WORLD.

YOU HAVE A LITTLE JAZZY

BASS LINE, AND YOU HAVE

THOSE WHO ARE COMING BACK

TO CHRIST WHO HAVE

EXPERIENCED THE SOUND OF

GO-GO OR JAZZ BUT STILL

WANT THE MESSAGE OF THE

GOSPEL.

Efrem: YOU HAVE ONE

SONG ON THERE "TURNING

AWARE"...

* I'M TURNING AWAY,

TURNING AWAY *

Efrem: WHAT IS THE

STORY BEHIND THAT SONG?

WHAT HAPPENED WITH BRIAN

WILSON THAT THAT SONG CAME

OUT?

BRIAN WILSON -- I HAVE

TO SAY THIS, I'VE BEEN IN

CHURCH ALL OF MY LIFE,

FROM THE AGE OF 10 YEARS

OLD AND RECORDING AND

SINGING, BUT DURING THAT

TIME PERIOD, THERE HAVE

BEEN EXPERIENCES WHERE

I'VE FALLEN, SHORT OF THE

GLORY OF GOD, WHEN I

DIDN'T PRAY WHEN I WAS

SUPPOSED TO, OR I SPENT

MORE TIME WATCHING THE

GAME VERSUS IN THE WORD OF

GOD, OR WHATEVER THE CASE

MAY BE.

THIS SONG TALKS ABOUT EVEN

IN THOSE PLACES, THAT THE

HOLY SPIRIT IS STILL

DEALING WITH ME, STILL

COMPELLING ME, THAT NO

MATTER WHERE YOU ARE, I

STILL LOVE YOU.

AND I WANT YOU TO TURN

AWAY FROM WHATEVER IS

DISTRACTING YOU FROM THE

WILL OF GOD, THE PRESENCE

OF GOD, AND IT IS TIME TO

TURN AWAY FROM THAT AND

GIVE HIM YOUR TOTAL

ATTENTION.

MAKE HIM YOUR FIRST LOVE

AGAIN.

Efrem: THAT LOVE HAS

EXPANDED WILSON'S

MINISTRY.

*

Efrem: HE IS NOT ONLY

SINGING THE GOSPEL

MESSAGE, HE IS NOW ALSO

PREACHING IT AS A PASTOR

IN THE WASHINGTON, D.C.

AREA.

Efrem: IN YOUR 20

YEARS CAREER NOW, EVEN AS

PASTOR, WHAT'S THE HIGH

POINT THUS FAR?

WOW, THAT'S A REALLY

GOOD QUESTION.

I WOULD HAVE TO SAY SO

FAR, WHEN IT COMES TO

CAREER, I HAVEN'T HAD A

TOP 30 SINGLE SINCE MY

PRE-ADOLESCENT YEARS, AND

THE ALBUM THAT IS

CURRENTLY OUT NOW,

"TURNING AWAY," HAS JUST

MADE TOP 30.

WHICH IS AN AWESOME FEAT

BECAUSE I HAD A HAND IN

WRITING THE SONGS.

I HAD A HAND IN THE ALBUM

COVER.

SO EVERY ASPECT OF IT, I

HAD A HAND IN IT.

IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE,

WOW, LORD, YOU BLESSED

THIS.

WE FINALLY DID IT, GOD.

Efrem: THE LOWEST

POINT?

I THOUGHT IT WAS THE

VOICE CHANGE.

I THOUGHT, OH, LORD MY

LIFE IS OVER.

I CAN'T SING ANYMORE, I

CAN'T TALK ANYMORE.

THAT WAS THE LOW POINT.

BUT AFTER THAT, YOU GET TO

THE POINT WHERE YOU'RE

WALKING INTO THE MANHOOD

AND I'M DOING MINISTRY AND

I'M SINGING, BUT IT SEEMS

LIKE YOU KEEP HITTING THIS

GLASS CEILING.

GOING THROUGH THAT PERIOD,

I KIND OF BEAT MYSELF UP A

LITTLE BIT.

SOMEONE TOLD ME ONE TIME

ON YouTube, THEY SAID,

YOU SHOULD WORK AT PIZZA

HUT.

AND I WAS, LIKE, OH, GOD.

AND I WAS TELLING SOMEONE,

IN GOSPEL, I HADN'T

EXPERIENCED FAILURE

BECAUSE I ENTERED AT A

SUCCESSFUL PLACE.

THIS 10-YEAR-OLD

PHENOMENON.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS

NOT TO SELL AN ALBUM OR TO

HAVE PEOPLE NOT LIKE YOUR

VOICE.

SO TO HAVE TO GO THROUGH

THAT POINT, WHERE I HAD TO

REALLY GET GOD, IT WAS A

LOW POINT, BUT IT TURNED

OUT TO BE ONE OF GREATEST

POINTS OF MY LIFE.

Efrem: THIS IS YOU AT

10.

WHAT WOULD YOU TELL THIS

KID TODAY?

I WOULD TELL HIM, THIS

IS KIND OF LIKE ONE OF

THOSE OPRAH MOMENTS.

I FEEL LIKE I'M ABOUT TO

CRY.

[LAUGHTER]

I FEEL LIKE YOU GOT ME.

I WOULD TELL HIM TO, YOU

KNOW, BE ENCOURAGED TO --

IT'S NOT GOING TO BE EASY

ALL OF THE WAY.

IT IS NOT GOING TO BE EASY

ALL OF THE TIME, BUT THAT

YOU'RE IMPACTING

SOMEBODY'S LIFE.

THAT KID DID NOT KNOW THAT

YEARS LATER, HUNDREDS,

EVEN OVER A MILLION PEOPLE

WOULD SEE THIS.

AND KIDS TODAY AND ADULTS

TODAY COME UP TO ME TODAY

SAYING, YOU'RE MY IDOL.

I WANT TO SING LIKE YOU.

NOT KNOWING THAT HIS

FATHER WASN'T THERE, HE

WAS A SUBSTANCE ABUSER,

BUT HE WAS STILL ABLE TO

BUILT OUT A PHRASE TO GOD

THAT IS GOING TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE'S

LIFE.

WHEN THEY SAID, WE

WOULD LIKE YOU TO BE THE

LEAD IN THE FILM, NOT JUST

HAVE A LITTLE PART IN THE

FILM, BUT BE A LEAD IN THE

FILM, I THOUGHT, HAVE YOU

ALL LOST YOUR MIND.

Efrem: UP NEXT, WE'LL

TAKE YOU BEHIND-THE-SCENES

OF THE NEW FILM, "WAR

ROOM."

Efrem: WHEN YOU THINK

OF A WAR ROOM, YOU

PROBABLY THINK ABOUT THE

U.S. ARMY OR THE PENTAGON.

BUT THE AWARD-WINNING

FILM-MAKERS BEHIND

"COURAGEOUS" AND

"FIRE-PROOF" SAY

CHRISTIANS SHOULD HAVE A

WAR ROOM AS WELL.

THAT'S THE TITLE OF THEIR

NEW MOVIE ABOUT THE POWER

OF PRAYER.

OUR CHARLENE AARON CAUGHT

THE FILM'S PREMIER IN

DALLAS.

Reporter: WE'RE HERE

FOR THE PREMIER OF "WAR

ROOM."

CBN NEWS HAS FOLLOWED THE

JOURNEY OF THIS FILM SINCE

THE BEGINNING, COMPLETE

WITH A BEHIND-THE-SCENES

VISIT TO THE SET DURING

PRODUCTION.

THE MOVIE FOLLOWS THE

TURBULENT MARRIAGE OF A

MIDDLE-CLASS COUPLE AND

HIGHLIGHTS THE DIFFERENCE

PRAYER CAN MAKE.

PRISCILLA SHIRER,

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR AND

DAUGHTER OF TONY EVANS,

MAKES HER BIG SCREEN DEBUT

AS A BUSY WIFE.

WHEN THEY SAID, WE WANT

YOU TO HAVE A LEAD IN THE

FILM, I SAID, HAVE YOU ALL

LOST YOUR MINDS.

Reporter: THE JORDANS

ROCKY MARRIAGE CONSTANTLY

REACHES THE BOILING POINT.

SHIRER WROTE THE

RESOLUTION FOR WOMEN FOR

THE FILM.

HER LACK OF ACTING

EXPERIENCE DIDN'T STOP

THEM FROM CASTING HER IN

THE MOVIE.

GOING INTO "WAR ROOM,"

WE WERE THINKING WE WOULD

LOVE TO HAVE SOMEONE LIKE

PRISCILLA TO PLAY THIS

ROLE.

WE WERE WRITING SCENES

WITH HER IN MIND.

Reporter: T.C. SHIRE SHIRES

PLAYS HER HUSBAND.

AS A FORMER PLAYER WITH

THE ARENA FOOTBALL LEAGUE,

HE RELATED TO HIS

CHARACTER'S STRUGGLE WITH

PRIDE AND PUTTING GOD

FIRST, A PROBLEM HE

BELIEVES A LOT OF MEN

FACE.

WE'VE BEEN FRIENDS FOR

A LONG TIME.

SOME THINGS ARE JUST NONE

OF YOUR BUSINESS.

I SAID, LORD, THERE ARE

SOME THINGS ABOUT TONY

JORDAN THAT I ACTUALLY

EXPERIENCED.

FOOTBALL WAS GOD FOR ME.

IT PROVIDED THE FAME, THE

NOTORIETY, AND THE

FINANCES.

AND TONY JORDAN DOES THE

SAME THING.

Reporter: THE FILM

HIGHLIGHTS WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN ELIZABETH LEARNS THE

KEY TO PRAYING IN HER

CLOSET.

IN THE CHRISTIAN WALK,

WE OFTEN TRY TO FIGURE IT

OUT ON OUR OWN, GET IN

OVER OUR HEADS, AND THEN

RUN TO GOD AND SAY, GOD,

WHERE ARE YOU AND WHAT ARE

YOU DOING?

WE USE THAT PARALLEL IN

THE MOVIE TO SAY WE ARE

SUPPOSED TO GO TO THE LORD

FIRST.

GOD IS LOOKING DOWN

SAYING, I'M THE ONLY ONE

WHO CAN CHANGE THIS

CULTURE, AND I'M THE ONLY

ONE WHO CAN CHANGE THE

HUMAN HEART.

IF YOU WILL COME BEFORE

ME, I WILL MOVE MIGHTLY ON

YOUR BEHALF.

Reporter: POPULAR

SPEAKER AND AUTHOR BETH

MOORE MAKES A CAMEO

APPEARANCE IN THE FILM.

SHE AGREES THAT SOME

UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF

PRAYER.

WHAT HAPPENS IS PEOPLE

GIVE UP.

THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT

PRAYER IN ITSELF IS ITS

OWN END BECAUSE IT IS

CONNECTING US WITH THE

CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE.

THE ONE WHO SAID, LET

THERE BE LIGHT, AND THERE

WAS.

THAT'S THE ONE WE'RE GOING

TO.

AND AS WE PERSEVERE, WE'RE

BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP.

THERE IS A GETTING TO KNOW

HIM THAT TAKES PLACE IN

PRAYER.

LET ME TELL YOU, ANYBODY

WHO DOESN'T BELIEVE IN THE

POWER OF PRAYER QUIT TOO

SOON.

Reporter: KAREN

ABERCROMBIE PLAYS MISS

CLARA, AN ELDERLY WOMAN

WHO ENLISTS ELIZABETH'S

HELP IN SELLING HER HOME,

WHILE ENCOURAGING HER TO

FIGHT FOR HER FAMILY ON

HER KNEES.

MISS CLARA IS A

77-YEAR-OLD WIDOW, AND SHE

IS A PRAYER WARRIOR.

SHE IS FUNNY, SHE IS KIND,

AND SHE IS SUPER

PASSIONATE ABOUT THE LORD.

WELL, FOR ELIZABETH, IT

IS KIND OF SLOW AND STUDY.

YOU KNOW, SHE HAS TO KEEP

MEETING WITH MISS CLARA,

BECAUSE SHE IS HELPING

MISS CLARA SELL HER HOUSE.

BUT SHE IS LIKE, STOP

ASKING ME QUESTIONS AND

ABOUT MY RELATIONSHIP WITH

THE LORD.

WE DON'T HAVE TIME FOR

THAT.

Reporter: "WAR ROOM"

IS MORE THAN JUST A MOVIE.

THE KE KENDRICKS SAY IT IS A

CALL FOR CHRISTIANS TO

SEEM THE LORD FOR ANSWERS

TO THEIR PROBLEMS.

WE PRAY THAT PEOPLE

WILL WATCH THIS FILM AND

THEY, YES, WILL FEEL THE

TENSION AND THE DRAMA,

LAUGH WITH US, AND CRY AT

POINTS, BUT AT THE END.

BE INSPIRED ABOUT HOW

PRAYER CAN FIGHT THE

ENEMY.

AND TO GO HOME AND SAY,

I'VE GOT TO AMP UP MY

PRAYER LIFE.

I WILL SAY I'VE BECOME

MORE STREECHG.

STRATEGIC.

I HAVE SEEN

INTERCESSORY PRAYER WORK.

AND I'VE SEEN FAMILY

MEMBERS COME TO THE LORD

AFTER SOME SERIOUS PRAYER.

AND SO I WAS ABLE TO JUST

PULL ON THOSE THINGS WHEN

I WENT IN THAT PRAYER

CLOSET.

LORD, CALL THEM TO

BATTLE.

Reporter: YOU CAN SEE

THE MOVIE YOURSELF WHEN IT

HITS THEATERS ON

AUGUST 28.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS,@@@@

DALLAS.

Efrem: BOOKS ARE

USUALLY FOR READING, BUT

THE ONE WE'RE ABOUT TO

SHOW YOU IS FOR FILTERS

WATER.

THAT IS, IT'S A DRINKABLE

BOOK, AND IT IS PROVIDING

ACCESS TO PURIFIED WATER

FOR PEOPLE IN DEVELOPING

COUNTRIES WHERE CLEAN

WATER IS SCARS.

I IN VENTED A PAPER

THAT PURE FISFIES DRINKING

WATER.

IT IS COMPARABLE TO THE

TAP WATER IN HIS COUNTRY.

Efrem: THE FILTERED

PAPER PREVENTS ANY

BACTERIA IN THE WATER FROM

ENTERING THROUGH, AND THE

CONTENT OF EACH PAGE

TEACHES SAFE WATER HABITS.

EACH FILTER CAN SUPPLY UP

TO 30 DAYS OF CLEAN WATER,

AND THE BOOK CAN LAST FOR

UP TO FOUR YEARS.

THE DRINKABLE BOOK IS AN

INITIATIVE OF THE GROUP

"WATER IS LIFE," AND THE

UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA DID

PRODUCE IT.

YOU CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT

IT AS cbnnews.com.

> IT IS ALWAYS A GREAT

DAY FOR GRATITUDE, AND

THAT IS WHY WE STOP TO

SHARE A THURSDAY THANK

YOUFUL.

TODAY WE PRAY, THANK YOU,

LORD FOR THE ABILITY TO

GIVE.

AFTER ALL, YOU BLESSED US

SO WE MAY BLESS OTHERS AND

BE JESUS REVEALED TO THOSE

WHO DON'T KNOW HIM.

HOW WILL YOU BE HIS HANDS

AND FEET TODAY, AND TURN

THE FOCUS OFF YOURSELF SO

HIS LIGHT MAY SHINE EVEN

MORE BRIGHTLY IN YOU.

HE IS GUARANTEED TO BLESS

YOU ALL THE MORE WHEN YOU

DO IT.
