REFUGEES.

I KEPT ASKING, I KEPT

CRYING, BUT THEY DID NOT

> ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELCOME, FOLKS,

TO THIS EDITION OF "THE

700 CLUB."

THE DEMOCRATS AND THE

REPUBLICANS ARE FACING AND

THE ELECTION IS GOING TO

BE IN NOVEMBER, BUT IT

SEEMS LIKE AN ETERNITY

UNTIL THEN.

BUT THE DEMOCRATS ARE

PLAYING THE SAME PLAYBOOK

THEY'VE USED IN THE LAST

TWO MAJOR ELECTIONS.

HOW DO THEY DO IT?

BEFORE THERE IS FEDERAL

FUNDING FOR THEIR

OPPONENTS, DURING THE

HIATUS PERIOD, THE

DEMOCRATS POUND THE DAY

LIGHTS OUT OF THEIR

OPPONENT.

THEY DID IT TO BOB DOLE,

AND THEY DID IT TO MITT

ROMNEY.

AND THEY BEGIN TO QUESTION

THEIR CHARACTER, THEIR

ABILITIES, THEIR

COMPASSION AND ALL OF THE

REST OF IT.

AND IT IT IS SUBTLE AND

IT'S DEVASTATING.

AND BY THE TIME THE

FUNDING FROM THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT COMES DOWN, AND

THEIR OPPONENT IS ABLE TO

PICK UP STEAM AND BEGIN TO

ADVERTISE, HE OR SHE IS

ALREADY DEAD IN THE POLLS.

THAT'S THE GAME AND THAT'S

BEING PLAYED OUT ONCE

AGAIN, SAME PLAYBOOK, SAME

DEAL, THAT WE'VE SEEN IN

TWO CYCLES.

AND FOR SOME REASON, THE

REPUBLICANS HAVEN'T CAUGHT

ON YET.

I DON'T KNOW WHY, BUT IT

IS THERE SO CLEARLY.

AFTER FALLING IN THE

POLLS, DONALD TRUMP IS

TRYING TO GET BACK ON

TRACK FOR HIS CAMPAIGN.

HE SACKED HIS CAMPAIGN

MANAGER, COREY

LEWANDOWSKI, AND HIS TEAM

IS GETTING READY FOR A

LONG BATTLE.

HE IS WAY BEHIND IN

FUNDRAISING, AND IN THE

ATTACK ADS THAT HAVE BEEN

FILLING THE AIRWAVES.

Wendy: TRUMP IS

LEADING WITH NEARLY 1,000

CHRISTIAN LEADERS BEHIND

CLOSED DOORS.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THAT

STORY.

Caitlin: IT IS BILLED

AS A CONVERSATION WITH THE

CANDIDATE.

TODAY HUNDREDS OF

CHRISTIAN LEADERS MEET

WITH DONALD TRUMP TO ASK

QUESTIONS AND LEARN MORE

ABOUT THE PRESUMPTIVE

REPUBLICAN NOMINEE.

DR. JASON RIANO SAYS HE

THINKS TRUMP WILL TRY TO

REUNITE SOME BEHIND SOME

KEY ISSUES.

THE QUESTION OF

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, THE

LIBERTY OF CONSCIENCE AND

LIBERTY PRINCIPLE -- THOSE

ARE SOME OF THE THINGS

CUTTING ACROSS A WIDE

EVANGELICAL SPECTRUM.

Caitlin: MEANWHILE,

ONLY A DAY AHEAD OF THE

MEETINGS, A MAJOR SHAKEUP

FOR THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN,

WITH HIM FIRING HIS

CAMPAIGN MANAGER COREY

LEWANDOWSKI.

NOW THERE IS SPECULATION

THAT IT IS DONALD TRUMP'S

MOST TRUSTED ADVISORS, HIS

CHILDREN, WHO WANTED HIM

GONE.

I THINK IT IS FAIR, BUT

IN MANY RESPECTS HE WAS

COMING TO THAT ON HIS OWN.

WE WERE THERE TO AUGMENT

THAT.

Caitlin: PAUL MANIFOR

IS TAKING OVER THE

CAMPAIGN.

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

REPORTS TRUMP IS ALSO SET

TO ANNOUNCE A RELIGIOUS

ADVISORY BOARD THIS WEEK.

THE NEW GROUP OF 20 TO 30

PEOPLE WILL BE AMONG THE

RELIGIOUS LEADERS HE MEETS

WITH TODAY.

ONE OF THE PEOPLE LIKELY

TO BE NAMED TO THAT BOARD,

PAULA WHITE, PLAYED A LEAD

ROLE IN ORGANIZING TODAY'S

MEETING.

SHE TOLD CBN NEWS THAT

TRUMP IS LOOKING FOR

COUNSEL FROM RELIGIOUS

LEADERS.

HE HAS SOUGHT AND ASKED

FOR THE WISDOM OF AN

SECRETARY COUNCIL THAT IS

FAITH BASED, THAT

REPRESENTS SO MANY

COMMUNITIES IN

CHRISTIANITY, AND TO FORM

AN ADVISORY BOARD.

AND I'M REALLY EXCITED

ABOUT THAT.

Caitlin: AMONG OTHER

POTENTIAL PICKS TO THE

BOARD, JERRY FALWELL, THE

PRESIDENT OF LIBERTY

UNIVERSITY, AND RONNIE

FLOYD, PRESIDENT OF THE

SOUTHERN BAPTIST

CONVENTION.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, WE'LL HAVE

A REPORT TOMORROW ON THAT

MEETING.

I, APPARENTLY, WAS PART OF

THE HOST COMMITTEE, BUT I

DIDN'T GO.

I HOPE IT IS A SUCCESS.

> IN OTHER NEWS, A YOUNG

BRITISH MAN HAS BEEN

STOPPED AFTER HE ALLEGEDLY

TRIED TO KILL DONALD TRUMP

IN LAS VEGAS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT

STORY.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

A 19-YEAR-OLD FROM THE

UNITED KINGDOM IS ACCUSED

OF TRYING TO KILL DONALD

TRUMP AT A RALLY IN LAS

VEGAS.

THE POLICE HAVE CHARGED

STEVEN SANFORD WITH

PLANNING TRUMP'S

ASSASSINATION FOR ABOUT A

YEAR.

HE HAD BEEN LIVING IN THE

UNITED STATES ILLEGALLY

AFTER HIS VISA WAS OVER.

HE SAID HE WANTED AN

AUTOGRAGH FROM TRUMP AND

THEN TRIED TO TAKE AN

OFFICER'S GUN.

> CHINA HAS TAKEN THE

LEAD IN SUPER COMPUTER

BUILDING.

CHINA NOW HAS 167 OF THE

TOP 500 IN THE WORLD, TWO

MORE THAN THE UNITED

STATES 265 MAJOR

COMPUTERS.

THE NEWEST, FASTEST MODEL

RUNS COMPLETELY ON CHINESE

DESIGNED SUPER COMPUTERS,

AND THE ASIAN GIANT COULD

BE THREATENING AMERICA'S

POSITION AS THE LEADER IN

TECHNOLOGY.

> DO UNBORN BABIES FEEL

PAIN?

THAT QUESTION CENTUR IS AT THE

CENTER OF A CONTROVERSY.

IT CANDIDATE WEATHE EXAMINES WHEN AND IF A N

UNBORN CHILD FEELS PAIN.

THERE ARE SERIOUS CONCERNS

ABOUT THE CREDIBILITY OF

THIS STUDY, WHICH HAS BEEN

SIDE. Lorie: THE ARTICLE,

PUBLISHED IN 2005

CONCLUDED UNBORN BABIES DO

NOT FEEL PAIN BEFORE 29 29

WEEKS INSIDE THE MOTHER'S

WOMB.

THE STUDY HAS BEEN

TAUGHTED BOY THOSTOUTEDBY THOSE WHO SUPPOR T

LATE-TERM ABORTION.

JAMES AGRESTI, A PUBLIC

POLICY FACT CHECKER, WHO

REQUESTED THE RETRACTION,

TOLD CBN NEWS THE AUTHORS

OF THE STUDY FAIL TO

DISCLOSE THEY'RE DIRECTLY

LINKED TO THE ABORTION

INDUSTRY.

IT SAYS NO FINANCIAL

DISCLOSURES.

ONE OF THE AUTHORS IS A

MEDICAL DIRECTOR OF AN

ABORTION CLINIC.

TWO OF THE OTHER AUTHORS,

ONE SERVED AS AN ATTORNEY

FOR NARAL, AND ANOTHER

ALSO WORKED IN AN ABORTION

CLINIC.

Lorie: BUT JAMUS SAYS

THE INFORMATION WE HAD

INDICATES THAT THE

OFFICERS COMPLIED WITH THE

CONFLICT OF INTEREST

REQUIREMENTS IN 2005.

AND AGRESTI REFUTED THE

STUDY'S MAIN CONCLUSION

THAT A DEVELOPED CEREBRAL

CORTEX IS NECESSARY TO

FEEL PAIN.

WHAT SCIENCE HAS

CLEARLY SHOWN WITHIN TWO

YEARS OF THAT PAPER BEING

PUBLISHED, TWO JOURNALS,

PUBLISHED PAPERS, SAYING

THAT IS ABSOLUTE NONSENSE.

AND WE KNOW THAT FOR A

FACT BECAUSE SOME CHILDREN

HAVE A DISORDER WHERE

THEY'RE BORN WITHOUT A

CEREBRAL CORTEX.

AND THESE CHILDREN

ABSOLUTELY ARE CONSCIOUS,

AND THEY SMILE.

IN FACT, THEY'RE SO NORMAL

THAT SOMETIMES YOU DON'T

EVEN KNOW THEY HAVE THE

CONDITION UNTIL MONTHS

LATER, WHEN DEVELOPMENTAL

MILESTONES ARE MISSED.

Lorie: IN RESPONSE TO

THE SUBSEQUENT ARTICLES,

JAMA SAID ALTHOUGH THEY

MAY ADD TO THE EXISTING

EVIDENCE ON A TOPIC, THAT

NEW INFORMATION DOES NOT

REQUIRE RETRACTION OF

PREVIOUS REVIEW ARTICLES.

ALTHOUGH THE MEDICAL

COMMUNITY IS NOT UNITED ON

WHEN AN UNBORN CHILD

BEGINS TO FEEL PAIN, A

LARGE NUMBER OF HEALTH

OFFICIALS CONCUR IT IS AT

12 WEEKS CESSATION.

AND THAT'S WHAT 20 STATES

HAVE PASSED THE ACT TO

PROTECT UNBORN BABIES FROM

PAINFUL ABORTIONS AFTER 20

WEEKS.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

John: THANKS, LORIE.

PAT, 12 STATES AND

COUNTING.

Pat: THEY CALL IT

"THE ABORTION DISTORTION."

IT IS A SCHEME OF LIES

THAT KEEP FILLING THE

AIRWAVES.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS

ABOUT THIS CULTURE OF

DEATH THAT WE HAVE HERE

THAT DELIGHTS IN KILLING

PEOPLE.

BUT THAT'S THE WAY IT IS.

THEY WANT TO KILL BABIES.

THEY WANT TO PUT TO DEATH

OLD PEOPLE.

IT IS THE WHOLE IDEA OF

DEATH.

THEY SEEM TO REVEL IN IT.

AND THEY SEEM TO HAVE NO

END TO THE DECEPTION THAT

GOES ON IN TERMS OF

COVERING UP WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

JUST TO THINK WHEN THEY

WERE SELLING BODY PARTS

OUT OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD

CLINICS, THEY GOT A JUDGE

WHO WANTED TO ARREST THE

PEOPLE WHO TOOK THE

PICTURES TO REVEAL WHAT

THEY WERE DOING.

IT IS THIS KIND OF THING

THAT IS GOING ON.

WHY?

IT IS A CULTURE OF DEATH.

AND YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT

THE SPIRITUAL ROOTS OF

SOME OF THIS AND SAY,

WELL, THE ENEMY OF OUR

SOUL IS SATAN, AND HE

HATES PEOPLE.

HE HATES HUMAN BEINGS.

AND THE IDEA IS IF HUMANS

CAN KILL OTHER HUMANS, THE

DEVIL WANTS TO DO

EVERYTHING TO HELP THEM.

HOW MANY BABIES HAVE WE

KILLED SO FAR, 55 MILLION,

MAYBE 60 MILLION -- THE

NUMBERS ARE SO HIGH IT IS

HARD TO KEEP UP WITH.

BUT IT IS A SHOCKING

HOLOCAUST.

WE, AS AMERICANS, SEEM TO

THINK IT IS OKAY.

WELL, IT IS NOT OKAY.

AND ONE DAY A RIGHTEOUS,

HOLY GOD IS GOING TO

DEMAND AN ACCOUNTING FOR

EVERY DROP OF BLOOD THAT

HAS BEEN SPILLED OF

INNOCENT, UNBORN BABIES.

AND WE JUST KEEP IN MIND,

WHEN IT HAPPENS, IT IS

GOING TO BE AWFUL.

JOHN?

John: PAT, IN HEALTH

NEWS, EATING JUST A FEW

MORE SERVINGS OF

PLANT-BASEPLANT-BASED FOODS, LIKE

VEGETABLES EVERY DAY,

COULD SUBSTANTIALLY CUT

YOUR RISK OF DIABETES.

THE STUDY'S LEAD AUTHOR

SAYS IT DOESN'T TAKE A

MAJOR SHIFT IN EATING

HABITS.

JUST REPLACING ONE OR TWO

SERVINGS OF A OF ANIMAL-BASED

FOODS WITH VEGETABLES CAN

HELP.

JUST ANOTHER ARGUMENT FOR

MOMS AND DADS TO GET THEIR

KIDS TO EAT VEGETABLES.

Wendy: MY NIECE AND

NEPHEW WERE VISITING OVER

THE WEEKEND, AND MY NIECE

LOVES FRUIT.

SHE LOVES STRAWBERRIES AND

WATERMELON, AND

CANTALOUPE.

IT WAS REALLY REFRESHING

TO SEE THAT.

Pat: AND THEY ALSO

LIKE CARROTS AND PEAS AND

BROCCOLI -- ALL OF THESE

THINGS, IF YOU GIVE THEM

TO THEM EARLY ENOUGH.

BUT WE'RE IN A

McDONALD'S-TYPE OF

ENVIRONMENT, WHERE EATING

HAMBURGERS IS THE AMERICAN

WAY.

Wendy: IF YOU GET

HUNGRY ENOUGH, THEY'LL

TASTE REALLY GOOD.

Pat: WELL, I LIKE

VEGETABLES AND I LIKE

BEANS.

Wendy: UP NEXT,

CHRISTIANS WHO FLED

PERSECUTION IN PAKISTAN,

AND THEN FOUND OUT THEIR

NEW HOME WAS EVEN WORSE.

MY LIFE IS SO TERRIBLE

RIGHT NOW.

I'M HERE AND MY WIFE IS

DEAD.

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?

Wendy: SO WHY ISN'T

ANYONE HELPING THESE

REFUGEES?

YOU'LL HEAR THEIR STORIES

WHEN WE RETURN.

Pat: YOU KNOW, I'VE

BEEN TO PAKISTAN A COUPLE

OF TIMES.

I'VE BEEN TO QUATA, ON THE

BORDER OF AFGHANISTAN.

I'VE SAT WITH THE

MUJAHEDIN, AND TALKED

ABOUT THEIR STRATEGIES

DURING THE RUSSIAN

INVASION OF AFGHANISTAN.

I HAVE SEEN SOME VERY,

VERY LOVELY PEOPLE WHO

WERE EDUCATED IN CHRISTIAN

MISSIONARY SCHOOLS OR

BRITISH SCHOOLS.

THE MILITARY WAS SHAPED

AFTER THE BRITISH MODEL.

PAKISTAN IS A VERY NICE

COUNTRY.

BUT APPARENTLY IT HAS BEEN

TAKEN OVER BY THE MOST

RADICAL OF THE ISLAMIC

PEOPLE.

AND NOW, INSTEAD OF BEING

A BENIGN FRIEND OF THE

UNITED STATES, WHICH TAKES

BILLIONS OF OUR DOLLARS,

IT HAS BECOME ONE OF THE

MOST DANGEROUS COUNTRIES

IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY

FOR CHRISTIANS.

THE PERSECUTION THERE IS

SO SEVERE THAT RECORD

NUMBERS OF PEOPLE HAVE

BEEN GETTING OUT OF

PAKISTAN.

AND ONE PLACE THEY'RE

GOING IS THAILAND.

BUT AS GEORGE THOMAS

UNCOVERED IN BANGKOK, LIFE

FOR THEM IS ANYTHING BUT

EASY.

George: WITH HIS

VOICE QUIVERING, AND TEARS

FILLING HIS EYES, MUSTACKK

FISAL SAYS HE HAD NO

CHOICE BUT TO LEAVE

PAKISTAN.

MY LIFE IS FULL OF

CHALLENGES.

George: MUSLIM

LEADERS ACCUSED THE YOUNG

CHRISTIAN OF TEARING PAGES

FROM THE QURAN, SO THEY

WANTED HIS FAMILY KILLED.

I WAS SO SCARED.

I TOLD THEM I WOULD NEVER

DO ANYTHING LIKE THAT TO

THEIR HOLY BOOK, BUT THEY

DIDN'T BELIEVE ME.

George: FEARING FOR

THEIR LIVES, HE TOOK HIS

WIFE AND SON, JOSHUA, AND

FLED TO TI THAILAND.

THE MOMENT WE ARRIVED

IN THAILAND, I SUBMITTED

OUR ASYLUM APPLICATION

WITH THE U.N.

George: BUT SIX

MONTHS AFTER ARRIVING IN

THE COUNTRY, HE DID NOT

HEAR BACK FROM THE U.N.

GROUP.

AND WITH THE VISA SET TO

EXPIRE, THE THAI

GOVERNMENT SENT THE POLICE

AFTER THEM.

I WAS NOT AT HOME WHEN

THE THAI POLICE CAME TO

OUR APARTMENT.

MY WIFE TOLD THEM SHE WAS

A HEART PATIENT AND THEY

SHOULD NOT ARREST HER, BUT

THEY DIDN'T LISTEN.

George: ANYONE WHO

OVER STAYS THEIR VISA IS

IMMEDIATELY ARRESTED AND

THEY'RE TAKEN TO A

DETENTION CENTIMETER.

SHE WAS OKAY FOR THE

FIRST THREE DAYS, BUT THEN

SHE GOT VERY ILL ON

DECEMBER 20th.

George: HE PLEADED

WITH THE U.N. TO HELP HIS

SICK WIFE.

I KEPT ASKING AND I

KEPT CRYING, BUT THEY DID

NOT LISTEN TO ME.

George: HE BEGGED

DETENTION GUARDS TO GIVE

HER HER HEART MEDICATIONS.

I TOLD THEM, IF YOU

DON'T DO ANYTHING, SHE

WILL DIE.

George: THIS

CHRISTIAN HUMAN RIGHTS

ADVOCATE TRIED TO

INTERVENE BUT WASN'T TOO

HOPEFUL BASED ON PAST

EXPERIENCE.

AND WHAT WE FOUND IS

THAT THE LAW MEANT TO

PROTECT THESE DETAINEES,

DENY THEM ACCESS TO HEALTH

CARE.

George: THERE ARE MEN

CHAINED LIKE DOGS.

THE STENCH, AS YOU WALK

IN, IS OVERPOWERING.

AND THE TOILETS -- THERE

ARE TWO TOILETS TO SERVE

OVER 200 PEOPLE.

George: AND IN SOME

CASES, 200 PEOPLE PACKED

IN ROOMS THAT BARELY FIT

100.

THEY'RE SLEEPING ONE ON

TOP OF EACH OTHER, OR

THEY'LL BE SLEEPING

CROUCHING OR STANDING UP.

George: ON

DECEMBER 30th, 2015, THE

U.N. FINALLY RESPONDED TO

FISAL.

BUT WITH NEWS THAT HIS

WIFE, SAMINA, HAD DIED.

MY LIFE IS SO TERRIBLE

RIGHT NOW.

WE FACE SO MANY

DIFFICULTIES IN PAKISTAN,

AND THAT'S WHY WE ESCAPED

TO THAILAND.

NOW I'M HERE AND MY WIFE

IS DEAD.

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?

MY SON KEEPS ASKING, WHERE

IS MOMMY?

BUT I DON'T HAVE THE

COURAGE TO TELL HIM THE

TRUTH.

George: SIX OTHER

PAKISTANI CHRISTIAN

REFUGEES HAVE DIED IN THAI

DETENTION CENTERS.

MORE THAN 100,000

PAKISTANIS HAVE PLED THEIR

HOMELAND BECAUSE OF RISING

ISLAMIC VIOLENCE.

REPORTS SAY NEARLY 11,000

ARE IN THAILAND, MANY OF

THEM CHRISTIANS.

THE PROBLEM IS THE

GOVERNMENT HERE DOESN'T

WANT ANY REFUGEES FROM

ANYWHERE, AND SINCE

THAILAND IS NOT A

SIGNATORY TO A U.N.

AGREEMENT ON

ASYLUM-SEEKERS, FOLKS LIKE

GEORGE NAZ FACE A

PRECARIOUS FUTURE.

WE WERE TREATED AS

SECOND-CLASS CITIZENS IN

PAKISTAN.

NOW WE COME HERE AND WE

FACE SIMILAR CONDITIONS.

George: NAZ IS A

WANTED MAN IN PAKISTAN.

IN 2013, HE WAS ACCUSED OF

BLASPHEMY BY AN ISLAMIC

COURT, BUT ESCAPED TO

THAILAND.

FOR NOW HE HITS AND WAITS.

AN ILLEGAL WITH NO RIGHT

TO WORK, NO ACCESS TO

SCHOOLS OR HOSPITALS.

I'M SCARED TO GO

OUTSIDE MY BUILDING

BECAUSE THE IMMIGRATION

POLICE OR ARMY CAN ARREST

ME AT ANY MOMENT.

George: CBN NEWS

VISITED A HOUSING COMPLEX

IN BANGKOK, WHERE SCORES

OF PAKISTANI CHRISTIAN

FAMILIES ARE CRAMMED INTO

SMALL APARTMENTS, MANY

LIVING ILLEGALLYMENT.

FOR EXAMPLE, WE LIVE IN

ONE ROOM WITH FOUR OTHER

FAMILIES.

OUR KID CANNOT GO TO

SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY ARE

CONSIDERED ILLEGAL.

SO WE JUST SIT AT HOME.

George: FOR A FEW

HOURS ON SUNDAY MORNING A

HANDFUL OF PAKISTANI

CHRISTIAN FAMILIES BRAVE

ARREST TO ATTEND THIS

SECRET CHURCH SERVICE.

STRANDED IN THAILAND FOR

YEARS, MANY HERE HOPE AND

PRAY FOR DESIGNATED U.N.

REFUGEE STATUS, AND

EVENTUALLY THE CHANCE TO

SETTLE IN A THIRD COUNTRY.

IN THE MEANTIME, A FEW

CHRISTIANS ARE HELPING

THEM AND OTHERS WITH FOOD

AND LIVING EXPENSES.

BUT THE NEEDS ARE

OVERWHELMING.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

George: FOR NOW,

THOUGH, FISAL CLAIMS TO

THE ONE THING HE KNOWS

WILL BRING COMFORT.

HE READS VERSES FROM PSALM

121, REMINDING HIS SON,

JOSHUA, THAT IT IS GOD WHO

WILL TAKE CARE OF ALL OF

THEIR NEEDS.

I TRUST IN GOD.

ONLY GOD CAN HELP US IN

OUR TIME OF DIFFICULTIES.

George: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS, BANGKOK,

THAILAND.

Pat: ALL OVER THE

WORLD THERE IS A FLOOD OF

REFUGEES.

THERE IS SO MUCH TURMOIL.

TURMOIL IN THE MIDDLE

EAST, TURMOIL IN ASIA,

TURMOIL IN SOUTH AMERICA.

PEOPLE'S LIVES ARE

THREATENED.

THEY'RE STARVING, MANY OF

THEM.

AND WE'RE TAKING MILLIONS

OF REFUGEES IN AMERICA,

AND MANY OF THEM ARE

ISLAMIC.

MANY OF THEM ARE

TERRORISTS.

THEY HAVE PROBLEMS.

OTHERS ARE JUST PEOPLE WHO

ARE LOOKING FOR A BETTER

LIFE.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, WE'RE

BEING CALLED UPON TO BE

VERY HUMANITARIAN.

AND SO WE OPEN OUR DOORS

TO THEM, AND WE LOOK AFTER

THEM.

EUROPE HAD DONE THE SAME

THING, AND NOW THE

EUROPEANS AND THE GERMANS

SAY WE CAN'T STAND ANYMORE

OF THIS.

OUR ECONOMY WON'T TAKE IT.

AND HERE THAILAND,

SUPPOSEDLY AN ENLIGHTENED

COUNTRY IN THE FAR EAST,

SAYS NO REFUGEES PERIOD.

YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT

THAT.

AND YOU SEE THESE

APPALLING CONDITIONS THAT

THESE REFUGEES HAVE TO

LIVE IN?

WHAT DO WE DO?

THE WHOLE WORLD IS

CONVULSED WITH THE

UPHEAVAL THAT IS TAKING

PLACE.

AND A GOOD PERCENTAGE OF

IT IS CAUSED BY RADICAL

ISLAM BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT

IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM IN

PAKISTAN, RADICAL ISLAM,

AS THEY'RE TRYING TO KILL

THOSE WHO DON'T AGREE WITH

THEM.

THE SAME THING IS TRUE IN

THE MIDDLE EAST.

WAR IN SYRIA.

WAR IN AFGHANISTAN.

WAR IN IRAQ.

ALL THE WAY THROUGH.

AND UPHEAVAL AFTER

UPHEAVAL BEING CAUSED BY

RADICAL ISLAMIC PEOPLE.

THAT IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF

A GOOD PORTION OF THIS --

NOT ALL OF IT, OF COURSE,

BUT A GREAT DEAL OF IT.

AND THE SUFFERING IS

BEYOND BELIEF.

WE PRAY FOR THEM AND WE DO

EVERYTHING TO HELP THEM.

AND THE U.N. BODY SHOULD

DO SOMETHING TO DEAL WITH

THIS SITUATION, AND THEY

OBVIOUSLY AREN'T BECAUSE

THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THE

SOLUTION IS.

WENDY, YOU'VE GOT A STORY

OF -- CLOSER TO HOME?

Wendy: YES.

COMING UP, SHE THOUGHT SHE

MARRIED PRINCE CHARMING.

INSTEAD, SHE MARRIED THE

PRINCE OF DARKNESS.

HE PUNCHED HIS FIST

RIGHT THROUGH THE WALL,

PAST MY HEAD.

I REMEMBER STANDING IN THE

KITCHEN AND FEELING LIKE I

WAS LOOKING AT PURE EVIL.

Wendy: ONE TORMENTED

SPOUSE MAKES HER ESCAPE,

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'RE GLAD TO HAVE YOU

WITH US TODAY.

I'VE GOT A TREMENDOUS

STORY FOR YOU TODAY.

A LADY WHO THOUGHT SHE HAD

MARRIED PRINCE CHARMING,

SUSAN COLE, BUT SHE LIVED

IN FEAR.

WHAT FEAR?

FEAR OF THE MAN WHO SLEPT

NEXT TO HER.

HER HUSBAND WAS ABUSIVE

AND UNFAITHFUL.

THEN ONE DAY SUSAN WAS

ABLE TO PACK UP HER FAMILY

AND GO.

AND HERE IS HOW A SERIES

OF MIRACLES HELPED MAKE IT

HAPPEN.

HE CAME INTO THE

KITCHEN AND SAID, WE NEED

TO TALK.

HE WENT ON TO SAY THAT HE

HAD BEEN HAVING AN AFFAIR

WITH A WOMAN WHO HAD

PREVIOUSLY BEEN A NANNY.

AND HE SAID, IF YOU TRY TO

LEAVE, OR IF YOU TRY TO

TAKE THE KIDS, I'LL KILL

YOU.

I REMEMBER STANDING IN THE

KITCHEN AND FEELING LIKE I

WAS LOOKING AT PURE EVIL.

Reporter: SUSAN COLE

NO LONGER RECOGNIZED THE

MAN SHE MET IN COLLEGE,

WHO SHE THOUGHT WAS HER

PRINCE CHARMING.

I MET MY FIRST HUSBAND,

I'LL CALL JOE.

HE WAS QUICK WITH

COMPLIMENTS.

I WAS SWEPT AWAY BY HIS

CHARISMA.

Reporter: BUT SHORTLY

AFTER THE TWO MARRIED, HE

BECAME JEALOUS AND STARTED

WATCHING HER EVERY MOVE.

HE KEPT CLOSE REINS ON

WHO I WAS WITH AND WHERE I

WAS.

IF THE PHONE RANG, HE

ANSWERED IT SO HE KNEW WHO

WAS ON THE OTHER END.

Reporter: THEY HAD

TWO CHILDREN, AND JOE

BEGAN DRINKING AND BECAME

VERBALLY ABUSIVE.

HE WOULD TELL ME I WAS

AN AWFUL MOTHER TO

REGULARLY BREAK ME DOWN,

OR TO MAKE ME FEEL THAT NO

ONE ELSE WOULD CARE ABOUT

ME.

WE HAD ONE ARGUMENT ONE

DAY WHERE HE PUNCHED HIS

FIST RIGHT THROUGH THE

WALL, PAST MY HEAD.

AS LONG AS THERE WAS

SUBSTANCE ABUSE IN OUR

HOUSE, AS LONG AS THERE

WERE TEMPERMENTAL

OUTBURSTS, I KNEW MY

CHILDREN AND I WEREN'T

SAFE.

Reporter: JOE

REVEALED HIS AFFAIR WITH

THE NANNY, AND THREATENED

SUSAN'S ON LIFE.

THAT WAS THE POINT I

KNEW I COULDN'T PUT THE

MARRIAGE BACK TOGETHER

MYSELF.

Reporter: SHE LATER

MET WITH A LAWYER WHO

SPECIALIZED WITH ABUSE

CASES.

HE SAID 90% OF THE CASE

IS HOT AIR, YOU'RE NOT

REALLY IN ANY DANGER.

HE SAID, I'M SO SORRY,

YOU'RE IN THE 10%.

Reporter: SUSAN OFTEN

USED HER DRIVE TO WORK TO

PONDER HER SITUATION.

ONE DAY ONE OF HER

FAVORITE STATIONS CHANGED

FORMATS.

IT HAD BEEN PURCHASED

BY CHRISTIAN BROADCASTING.

I REMEMBER THINKING, THEY

TOOK MY RADIO STATION, HOW

COULD THEY DO THAT?

I BEGAN TO LISTEN OUT OF

CURE ROCURIOSITY.

THE STORIES THAT PEOPLE

SHARED WERE NOTHING LIKE

MIND.

THEY WERE THROUGH

ILLNESSES, AND MAYBE

INFIDELITY, AND ALL KINDS

OF TRAUMA IN THEIR

FAMILIES.

BUT THERE WAS A COMMON

THREAT TO ALL OF THEM, AND

IT WAS HOPE.

I DECIDED I REALLY WANTED

THAT HOPE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

THE STRIFE AT HOME

CONTINUED.

I REMEMBER STANDING

THERE SAYING, GOD, IF

YOU'RE REAL, YOU NEED TO

SHOW UP.

IT WASN'T LONG AFTER

PRAYING THAT THAT I WAS ON

THE WAY HOME FROM A

DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT WITH

MY SON.

AND WE WERE IN A HEAD-ON

CAR ACCIDENT.

REMARKABLY, I WAS

UNINJURED.

MY SON HAD NOT A SINGLE

SCRATCH.

AND HE SAID, MOMMY, I SAW

AN ANGEL.

AND THEN IT WAS INSIDE OF

THE WINDOW OF THE VAN, AND

IT TOLD ME EVERYTHING WAS

GOING TO BE OKAY.

THAT PROPELLED ME TO GO TO

CHURCH THE NEXT SUNDAY.

Reporter: SUSAN WENT

BY HERSELF THAT NEXT WEEK

AND WAS MOVED BY THE MUSIC

AND THE MESSAGE.

THEY BEGAN SINGING

"AMAZING GRACE," AND AS

THEY SANG THE WORDS, I

WEPT.

AT THAT POINT IT CHANGED

ME.

I UNDERSTOOD MY FAITH IN A

WAY I HAD NEVER UNDERSTOOD

BEFORE.

I UNDERSTAND IT WAS A

RELATIONSHIP, THAT I COULD

TALK TO GOD, CRY OUT TO

GOD, AND HE HEARD ME.

AND HE ANSWERED.

IT IS THE PEACE THAT

SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING.

Reporter: WITH HER

NEWFOUND FAITH TO HELP

GUIDE HER, SUSAN PRAYED

FOR WISDOM ABOUT HER NEXT

STEP.

IT TOOK ME SIX MONTHS

OF PLANNING, SIX MONTH OF

TUCKING MONEY AWAY,

TUCKING SOME CLOTHES AWAY,

AN EMERGENCY BAG IN CASE

WE NEEDED TO RUN QUICKLY.

Reporter: AND SHE

ALSO MET WITH A TEAM OF

VOLUNTEERS WHO HELPED

DOMESTIC ABUSE VICTIMS.

ONE MORNING WHEN JOE WENT

OUT OF TIME, THEY ARRIVED

AND MOVED HER AND HER

CHILDREN, AND THEY DROVE

TO A LOCATION 14 HOURS

AWAY.

THE MORNING WE LEFT, I

KEPT THINKING WE'RE GOING

TO GET CAUGHT.

I'M NOT GOINWE'RE NOT GOING TO BE

FAITH.

I TRIED TAKING ONE STEP

AFTER THE NEXT.

Reporter: THAT

MORNING, A NEIGHBOR SAW

HER PACKING THE VAN TO

LEAVE.

THE ENTIRE TIME SHE

WATCHED, SHE WAS CALLING

JOE ON HER PHONE.

SHE WANTED TO TELL HER WE

WERE LEAVING BECAUSE SHE

ASSUMED HE WAS THE VICTIM.

AND INTERESTING ENOUGH,

HER PHONE CALLS DIDN'T GO

THROUGH.

I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT WAS

ONE OF THE MANY WAYS GOD

PROVIDED FOR US.

Reporter: AS SHE

WATCHED HER CHILDREN THAT

MORNING, SUSAN SAYS GOD

SPOKE TO HER.

AS I'M WATCHING THEIR

ANTICIPATION AND THEIR

HUNGER FOR WHAT LIES

AHEAD, I FELT LIKE GOD WAS

SAYING TO ME, WHAT ARE YOU

LOOKING AT?

ARE YOU LOOKING AT YOUR

BROKENNESS?

ARE YOU LOOKING AT THE

INFIDELITY?

ARE YOU LOOKING AT ALL OF

THE THINGS THAT COULD HAVE

BEEN BUT WON'T BE?

ARE YOU LOOKING AT THE

POSSIBILITY THAT YOUR

FUTURE ISN'T SAFE OR ISN'T

POSSIBLE?

BECAUSE I'M THE GOD OF THE

IMPOSSIBLE.

I REALIZED IT WAS SO EASY

TO LOOK IN THE REAR VIEW

OF LIFE, AT ALL OF THE

THINGS WE'VE BEEN THROUGH,

AND NOT THE POCKET POCKETS POSSIBILITIES

THAT ARE POSSIBLE WITH

GOD.

Reporter: HER HUSBAND

WAS LATER ALLOWED

SUPERVISED VISITS, AND

SUSAN FOUND IT IN HER

HEART TO FORGIVE HIM.

I REALIZED IF I DIDN'T

FORGIVE HIM, I WAS SAYING

WHAT JESUS DID ON THE

CROSS WASN'T ENOUGH FOR

JOE'S SINS.

THE REMARKABLE THING IS AS

I FORGAVE, IT WAS ME WHO

RECEIVED THE BENEFITS.

Reporter: SUSAN LATER

REMARRIED, AND TODAY SHE

SPEAKS TO WOMEN ON FAITH

AND DOMESTIC ABUSE.

MY PURPOSE REALLY IS TO

SHARE MY STORY AND

ENCOURAGE OTHERS.

THE NUMBER OF TIMES I'VE

REFLECTED BACK OVER THE

ANSWERED PRAYERS THAT I

HAVE, HAVE REALLY HELPED

ME TO LEARN TO TRUST GOD.

I REALIZE THAT I CAN'T

LIMIT HIM BY WHAT I THINK

IS POSSIBLE.

AND I'VE LEARNED TO NOT BE

AFRAID TO PRAY THE REALLY

BIG PRAYERS.

THE PRAYERS THAT I HAVE NO

IDEA HOW THEY CAN HAPPEN.

GOD GAVE ME A LIFETIME

SUPPLY OF HOPE.

Pat: A LIFETIME

SUPPLY OF HOPE, AND THAT'S

WHAT SHE HAD, AND THAT'S

WHAT YOU CAN HAVE.

SOME OF YOU WHO ARE

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM,

YOU'RE TRAPPED IN DOMESTIC

ABUSE.

YOU HAVE AN ABUSIVE

SPOUSE.

IT DOESN'T ALWAYS HAVE TO

BE THE MAN.

IT CAN BE THE WOMAN AS

WELL.

WHO ARE ABUSING --

SOMETIMES PHYSICAL ABUSE,

AND SOMETIMES MENTAL

ABUSE.

BUT TRAPPED IN A MARRIAGE,

INSTEAD OF BEING HEAVEN ON

EARTH, WHICH IT SHOULD BE,

IT CAN BECOME HELL ON

EARTH.

AND THERE IS A WAY OUT.

THE FIRST WAY, OF COURSE,

IS TO KNOW JESUS.

AND THEN TO HAVE JESUS,

THE GREAT SHEPHERD, LEAD

YOU OUT TO SAFETY.

AND HE'LL DO IT.

FORTUNATELY, THERE ARE

ORGANIZATIONS THAT HELP

BATTERED AND ABUSED WOMEN.

AND THEY'RE THERE TO HELP

YOU.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU RIGHT

NOW, IF YOU WANT TO HOW TO

BE FREE, YOU NEED TO FIRST

START WITH THE LORD.

AND I WANT YOU TO PRAY

WITH ME NOW, AND PRAY

THESE WORDS.

DO IT WITH ME, IF YOU

WOULD.

LORD JESUS CHRIST, I THANK

YOU THAT YOU DIED FOR ME,

AND I THANK YOU THAT YOU

LOVE ME.

AND I THANK YOU THAT YOU

ARE A FOUNTAIN OF HOPE.

AND SO I PUT MY TRUST IN

YOU, AND I COMMIT TO YOU

THE PROBLEMS THAT I HAVE

BEEN FACED WITH.

YOU KNOW HOW SEVERE THEY

ARE.

YOU KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON

IN MY LIFE.

AND I ASK YOU, LORD, SET

ME FREE.

IN YOUR HOL HOLY NAME I ASK

IT.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST

THEN, I WANT YOU TO GIVE

US A CALL.

THE TELEPHONE NUMBER IS

1-800-759-0700.

SO CALL IN RIGHT NOW.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO CARES

ABOUT YOU.

WENDY?

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

> STILL AHEAD, THE ONE

PRAYER THAT CHANGES

EVERYTHING, AND THAT'S

ACCORDING TO ANN GRAHAM

LOTTS.

FIND OUT WHAT IT IS AND

HOW IT CAN WORK FOR YOU

WHEN WE COME BACK.

SHE'S HERE.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

AS EXPECTED, ALL FOUR GUN

CONTROL BILLS FAILED TO

PASS THE SENATE MONDAY.

BOTH PARTIES PRESENTED

MEASURES TO KEEP SUSPECTED

TERRORISTS FROM GETTING

DINE.

DIANNE FEINSTEIN SAYS THE

ORLANDO TERRORIST ATTACK

PROVES THERE IS A NEED FOR

ACTION.

THE ORLANDO ATTACK

AGAIN EXPOSED A DANGEROUS

LOOPHOLE IN OUR LAW THAT

ALLOWS KNOWN OR SUSPECTED

TERRORISTS TO LEGALLY

PURCHASE GUNS.

Efrem: ONE PLAN FROM

DEMOCRATS INCLUDED A

BROADER BAN ON GUN SALES

TO SUSPECTS, WHILE

REPUBLICANS CALLED FOR A

DELAY ON THOSE SALES UNTIL

A JUDGE COULD EXAMINE EACH

CASE.

> A HARVARD PROFESSOR

WHO UNVEILED A SMALL

FRAGMENT CLAIMING IT

PROVED JESUS WAS MARRIED

IS SAYING SHE MADE A

MISTAKE AND THE FRAGMENT

WAS FORGED.

PROFESSOR KAREN KING

PRESENTED THE FRAGMENT

WHICH INCLUDED THE PHRASE

"JESUS SAID TO THEM, MY

WIFE."

SHE ADMITTED HER PREVIOUS

ASSUMPTIONS WERE NOT

CORRECT.

CITING AN ARTICLE

PUBLISHED ON THE ATLANTIC

MAMAGAZINE'S WEBSITE LAST

WEEK.

SHE SAYS SHE WAS LIED TO

BY THE OWNER OF THE

FRAGMENT.

A PROFESSOR TOLD CBN NEWS

THAT SCHOLARS WERE SO

EXCITED ABOUT WHAT THE

FRAGMENT WHAT JESUS SAID

ABOUT HIS WIFE, THEY

DIDN'T INVESTIGATE IF IT

WAS REAL.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT,

BELIEVERS, IT IS TIME FOR

US TO STORM THE GATES OF

HEAVEN.

IF YOU EVER THOUGHT YOUR

PRAYERS AREN'T BEING HEARD

ARE YOU FEEL SURROUNDED BY

CHAOS, THEN IT IS TIME YOU

TRY THE DANIEL PRAYER.

ANN GRAHAM LOTTS EXPLAINS.

Reporter: ANN GRAHAM

LOTTS HAS BEEN PROCLAIMING

GOD'S WORD AROUND THE

WORLD FOR 30 YEARS.

SHE HAS BEEN CALLED THE

BEST PREACHER IN THE

FAMILY BY HER BELOVED

FATHER, BILLY GRAHAM, WHO

HAS PREACHED TO MORE

PEOPLE THAN ANYONE IN

HISTORY.

LIKE HER DAD, ANN IS ALSO

A BEST-SELLING AUTHOR.

AT HER SIGNATURE EVENTS,

CALLED "JUST GIVE ME

JESUS,JESUS," HAVE BEEN HELD IN

20 CITIES IN 12 COUNTRIES.

SHE OUTLINES THE PRAYER OF

THE BIBLICAL PROPHET

DANIEL, AND TELLS YOU HOW

TO PRAY FOR YOURSELF, YOUR

FAMILY, AND THIS NATION.

Wendy: IF EVER THERE

IS A TIME FOR A BOOK LIKE

THAT, IT IS NOW.

AND WE'RE PRIVILEGED TO

HAVE ANN GRAHAM LOTTS

RIGHT HERE IN THE STUDY.

STUDIO.

IT IS GOOD TO SEE YOU

AGAIN.

THANK YOU, WENDY.

Wendy: WE HAVE TO ASK

YOU ABOUT YOUR DAD.

HE IS TURNING 98 THIS

YEAR?

YES, HE'LL BE 98 IN

NOVEMBER.

HE IS 97, AND HE IS

CONFINED TO HIS BED OR

WHEELCHAIR -- HE IS NOT

MOBILE.

BUT HE HAS A GOOD

APPETITE, AND I TALKED TO

HIM ON FATHER'S DAY.

HE HAS A HEARD TIME

HEARING MY VOICE, BUT HE

TALKED TO ME ON THE PHONE.

IT'S A BLESSING.

I'M NOT SURE IF I WENT

EVERY DAY IF IT WOULD BE

OFTEN ENOUGH.

I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE WHEN

THEY THINK ABOUT BILLY

GRAHAM, TO PRAY.

AND KNOW GOD IS HOLDING

HIM FOR A PURPOSE.

AND THAT HE'LL HOLD HIM

AND HE'LL BE FAITHFUL

UNTIL THAT MOMENT WHEN GOD

TAKES HIM HOME.

Wendy: YOU HAVE

WRITTEN AN AMAZING NEW

BOOK CALLED "THE DANIEL

PRAYER."

FIRST OF ALL, WHAT IS THE

DANIEL PRAYER?

IT IS BASED ON DANIEL

9.

IT WAS THE PRAYER HE

PRAYED FOR HIS PEOPLE WHEN

THEY WERE SEPARATED FROM

GOD.

THEY WERE BEING HELD

CAPTIVE BY THE ENEMY.

AND HE PRAYED A PRAYER

BASED ON GOD'S WORD.

HE CAME ACROSS A PROMISE

IN JEREMIAH THAT SAID

AFTER 70 YEARS, I WILL SET

YOUR PEOPLE FREE.

I WILL RETURN THEM BACK TO

THEIR HOME LAND IF YOU

WILL SEEK ME WITH ALL OF

YOUR HEART.

AND DANIEL READS THAT

PROMISE AND HE CONNECTS

THE DOTS WITH THE PROBLEMS

HE SAW HIS PEOPLE FACING.

AND HE PRAYED GOD'S WORD

BACK TO HIM.

AND SO THE DANIEL PRAYER

IS A PRAYER OF

DESPERATION.

IT IS A PRAYER, A

NO-HOLDS-BARRED PRAYER.

YOU TURN AWAY FROM

EVERYTHING ELSE --

Wendy: WHEN GOD IS

THE ONLY HOPE AND

SOLUTION?

THAT'S RIGHT.

Wendy: DANIEL'S PRAY

WAS ON BEHALF OF THE

NATION OF JUDAH, BUT YOU

SAY THERE ARE PARALLELS

WITH ANCIENT JUDAH AND

MODERN DAY AMERICA.

HOW SO?

AT THE END OF THE

SECOND CHRONICLES, GOD

SENT MORE AND MORE PEOPLE.

IN THE END, BIBLE SAID GOD

TURNED AGAINST HIS OWN

PEOPLE, AGAINST JUDAH, AND

SENT IN NEBUCHADNEZZAR.

BUT DANIEL WAS TAKEN OFF

THE FIRST TIME

NEBUCHADNEZZAR ATTACKED.

AND THE PARALLEL IS THAT

GOD -- HE NEVER SNEAKS UP

AND JUDGES A PERSON ARE

NATION BY SURPRISE.

HE ALWAYS WARNS IN

ADVANCE.

I THINK GOD HAS WARNED

AMERICA, AND AMERICA HAS

TURNED A DEAF EAR FOR THE

MOST PART.

I THINK GENERALLY SPEAKING

OUR NATION IS MORALLY AND

SPIRITUALLY IMPLODING.

AND MY CONCERN IS THAT WE

WOULD PASS THE POINT OF NO

RETURN.

BECAUSE THERE COMES A TIME

WHEN THE PSALMIST SAID,

YOU CRY TO THE LORD, WHILE

HE MAY BE FOUND.

IMPLYING THERE IS A TIME

WHEN GOD CAN'T BE FOUND.

OUR SIN HAS SO COME

BETWEEN US AND HIM, HE

WON'T LISTEN TO US

ANYMORE.

I DON'T BELIEVE IT IS TOO

LATE NOW BECAUSE GOD IS

TURNING SO MANY PEOPLE TO

PRAY.

AND IT IS TIME NOW TO PRAY

LIKE DANIEL DID, BEFORE IT

IS TOO LATE, OR WE'RE

GOING TO WISH THAT WE HAD.

GOD IS THE ONLY HOPE FOR

AMERICA.

IT IS TIME THAT GOD'S

PEOPLE CRIED OUT TO HIM.

Wendy: EVEN IN

DANIEL'S TIME, IT LOOKED

LIKE IT WAS PAST HOPE.

BUT HE KEPT ON PRAYING AND

HE SAW REALLY A MIRACLE

HAPPEN.

THERE WAS NO WAY THAT

SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED, THAT

CYRUS SAID YOU CAN GO

BACK.

YES.

IT WAS OUT OF THE BLUE.

SO DANIEL PRAYED IN THE

67th YEAR, AND HE PRAYED

THAT GOD WOULD KEEP HIS

WORD.

AND THREE YEARS LATER, GOD

KEPT HIS WORD, THE 70th

YEAR.

CYRUS, OUT OF THE BLUE, HE

LET THE PEOPLE GO.

HE ISSUED AN EDITH AND

SAID YOU CAN ALL GO BACK.

DANIEL'S GOD IS OUR GOD.

HE IS A MIRACLE-WORKING,

COVENANT-KEEPING GOD, BUT

HE WAITS FOR US TO COME TO

HIM.

HE IS COMMANDING US TO

REPENT OF OUR SIN,

SPEAKING FIRST OF ALL AT

OUR CHURCH.

OUR SOCIETY HAS A LOT OF

SIN.

SINNERS SIN, AND THAT'S

WHAT THEY DO.

BUT GOD'S PEOPLE -- WE

NEED TO FIRST EXAMINE OUR

OWN HEARTS.

WE NEED TO REPENT OF OUR

SIN.

THAT'S WHAT CHRONICLE

SAYS, "MY PEOPLE," AND

PRAY THAT BACK TO GOD,

SAYING YOU SAID, IF MY

PEOPLE WOULD HUMBLE

THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND

SEEK HIS FACE, AND TURN

FROM OUR WICKED WAYS, THEN

YOU SAID YOU WILL FORGIVE

AND HEAL OUR LAND.

Wendy: THE DANIEL

PRAYER ISN'T JUST THE

PRAYER FOR A NATION?

NO.

IT CAN BE YOUR OWN PRAYER,

IF YOU HAVE A CHILD IN

REBELLION OR A SPOUSE THAT

WALKS OUT, OR A HEALTH

SITUATION -- IT IS A PRAY

OF DESPERATION.

IT IS A PATTERN TO HIS

PRAYER THAT WORKS.

BEFORE HE FINISHED

PRAYING, GOD SENT AN ANGEL

TO HIM TO TELL HIM YOU'RE

HIGHLY ESTEEMED, DANIEL.

I LOVE THE FACT THAT A

PERSON WHO PRAYS LIKE

DANIEL IS HIGHLY ESTEEMED

IN HEAVEN.

AND THREE YEARS LATER THE

PRAYER WAS ANSWERED.

Wendy: LAST YEAR A

TRAGEDY STRUCK IN YOUR OWN

LIFE.

WHAT HAPPENED?

I HAD BEEN MARRIED 49

YEARS AT THAT POINTER.

POINT.

AND MY HUSBAND WAS NOT IN

GOOD HEALTH.

I HAD GOTTEN OFF THE ROAD,

AND I THINK THIS IS THE

TIME GOD TOLD ME TO TAKE

CARE OF HIM.

AND THEN I FOUND HIM

UNRESPONSIVE IN OUR POOL.

AND WE PUT HIM ON LIFE

SUPPORT.

AND THEN HE WENT TO HIS

FATHER'S HOUSE.

AND THIS FATHER'S DAY I

MISSED HIM, BUT GOD HAS

SET HIM FREE.

AND I BELIEVE THAT JESUS

IS THE RESURRECTION AND

THE LIFE.

AND WHEN WE DIE, WE LIVE.

I BELIEVE MY HUSBAND TODAY

IS MORE ALIVE THAN HE HAS

EVER BEEN.

ONE DAY I'LL SEE HIM

AGAIN, AND WE'LL BE

REUNITED IN HEAVEN.

SO I HAVE THAT HOPE TO

LOOK FORWARD TO.

Wendy: YOU WERE

MARRIED 49 YEARS.

I BURIED HIM TWO DAYS

SHORT OF OUR 49th

ANNIVERSARY.

I MET HIM WHEN I WAS 17,

SO HE WAS THE CENTER OF MY

LIFE ALL OF MY LIFE, JUST

ABOUT.

BUT GOD -- ANYBODY OUT

THERE WHO IS STRUGGLING

WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS,

CAN I JUST TELL YOU THAT

ONE OF THE WAYS THAT I'VE

GOTTEN THROUGH THIS, NOT

ONLY IS THE PRAYER, OF

COURSE, BUT FOCUSING ON

THE BLESSINGS OF GOD.

INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON THE

PAIN AND THE GRIEF AND THE

TURMOIL AND ALL THAT GOES

WITH SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

YOU FOCUS ON THE

BLESSINGS.

AND GOD HAS POURED OUT HIS

BLESSINGS ON ME.

AND IT MAKES ME VERY

GRATEFUL.

AND, YES, THERE ARE TEARS.

YES, THERE ARE MOMENTS.

BUT THERE IS A LOT OF JOY

AND THANKSGIVING BECAUSE

OUR GOD IS GOD.

AND HE IS FAITHFUL TO US.

JUST AS HE WAS FAITHFUL TO

DANIEL.

AND GOD WILL BE FAITHFUL

TO YOUR VIEWERS, FAITHFUL

TO YOU.

AND THE REASON I KNOW THAT

IS BECAUSE GOD IS

FAITHFUL.

HE CAN'T BE LESS THAN

HIMSELF.

HE IS A FAITHFUL GOD.

HE IS FAITHFUL TO KEEP HIS

PROMISES, FAITHFUL TO KEEP

HIS WARNINGS.

AND FAITHFUL TO ANSWER OUR

PRAYERS, BUT WE NEED TO

CRY OUT TO HIM.

HE DOESN'T ANSWER PRAYERS

UNLESS WE ASK.

SO IT IS TIME FOR US TO

PRAY.

Wendy: AND SO MANY

PEOPLE ARE SAYING THIS

BOOK IS CHANGING THEIR

LIVES.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

WRITING IT AND FOR YOUR

CONSTANT INSPIRATION.

AND YOU CAN GET MORE IN

ANN'S BOOK, AND IT'S

CALLED "THE DANIEL

PRAYER," AND IT IS

AVAILABLE IN STORES

NATIONWIDE.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BEING HERE.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: STILL TO COME,

QUESTIONS IN "BRING IT

ON."

DON'T GO AWAY.

Pat: WELL, THANK YOU

FOR BEING WITH US.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'VE GOT A LOT MORE

COMING.

JUST SOUTH OF THE SAHARA

DESERT, THERE IS A

THRIVING GARDEN.

WHILE THAT MAY SOUND

IMPOSSIBLE, THAT IS

EXACTLY WHAT YOU'LL FIND

AT ONE CHURCH.

THANKS TO HELP FROM A

MAN -- FROM AN ISRAELI

COMPANY AND A PARTNERSHIP

WITH CBN.

Terry: YEARS AGO, A

NEW CHURCH WAS BORN IN THE

MUSLIM VILLAGE IN SENEGAL,

SOUTH AFRICA.

AND IT WAS STARTED BECAUSE

OF A REVIVAL AMONG THE

CHILDREN.

JESUS WAS ALIVE IN

THESE CHILDREN.

THEY HAVE THE GIFT OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

THEY PRAYED AND THEY WERE

HEALED.

Terry: BUT THE CHURCH

AND THE VILLAGE STRUGGLED

BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE

ENOUGH WATER FOR DRINKING

OR FOR CROPS.

THIS SEMI ARID REGION HAS

A TWO-MONTH GROWING

SEASON.

THE REST OF THE YEAR IS

HOT AND DRY WITH NO

RAINFALL.

THAT'S WHEN CBN OFFERED

TO DRILL A WELL FOR THE

PEOPLE OF OUR VILLAGE.

Terry: BUT THIS

WASN'T JUST ANY WELL.

IT IS A DEEP WATER WELL

WITH AN UNDERGROUND PUMP

THAT CAN DELIVER UP TO A

THOUSAND GALLONS OF WATER

AN HOUR.

THE PUMP IS POWERED BY

SOLAR PANELS, AND QUICKLY

REFILLED THE STORAGE TANK.

THIS WELL IS LIKE A

PRECIOUS JE GEM FOR THE

VILLAGE BECAUSE THE WATER

IS SO PURE.

TODAY EVERYONE COMES AND

GETS CLEAN WATER.

Terry: THEN TO HELP

THE CHURCH PROSPER, WE

ADDED ISRAELI DRIP

IRRIGATION AND A

MONITORING SYSTEM ON THEIR

PROPERTY.

PLANTS RECEIVE JUST THE

RIGHT AMOUNT OF WATER TO

GROW.

THE SYSTEM WAS MADE

POSSIBLE THROUGH OUR

PARTNERSHIP WITH ISRAEL'S

INNOVATION AFRICA.

THE CROPS GREW SO WELL IN

THAT FIRST SEASON THAT THE

CHURCH WAS ABLE TO HIRE

ITS MEMBERS TO GATHER THE

HARVEST.

AND WITH THE PROFITS FROM

THE SALE OF THE PRODUCE,

THEY WERE ABLE TO BUY A

SECOND FIELD.

ALL OF THIS IS HELPING THE

CHURCH TO GROW.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator: I

THANK ALL OF THE PARTNERS,

ESPECIALLY CBN AND

INNOVATION AFRICA.

I THANK ALL OF THOSE WHO

GAVE MONEY FOR THIS WELL.

Pat: YOU'RE DOING

THAT.

YOU SAY, I DIDN'T KNOW I

WAS DOING A DRIP

IRRIGATION PROJECT IN THE

SAHARA.

YES, YOU ARE.

AND MANY OTHER THINGS LIKE

THAT BECAUSE WE CARE ABOUT

PEOPLE, SUFFERING PEOPLE,

ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

THAT'S JUST ONE EXAMPLE OF

SOMETHING THAT CBN IS

DOING.

WE HAVE DRILLED THOUSANDS

OF WATER WELLS AROUND THE

WORLD.

WE HAVE TREATED HUNDREDS

OF THOUSANDS OF SIC

PEOPLE.

SICK

PEOPLE.

WE HAVE FED MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE WHO WERE HUNGRY.

YOU CAN DO IT IF WE ALL

JOIN TOGETHER.

WE ASK YOU TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

I HAVE IN MY HAND

SOMETHING CALLED "VICTORY

THROUGH LIFE'S STORMS."

AND THIS IS A D.V.D.

IT WILL TELL YOU HOW TO

OVERCOME THE STORMS THAT

HAVE HIT YOU IN LIFE.

IT IS AVAILABLE TO YOU AS

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

BUT I BELIEVE NOW IT IS

TIME TO GET INTO SOME

QUESTIONS.

Wendy: WE'VE GOT SOME

GOOD ONES.

IRIS SAYS, "I'VE BEEN

SAVED FOR THREE YEARS.

MY HUSBAND IS NOT OPEN TO

CHRISTIANITY YET.

HE PRAYS TO OTHER GODS,

LIKE BUDDHA AND OTHER

GODS.

MY HUSBAND GETS OFFENDED

WHEN I TALK TO HIM ABOUT

PRAYING TO THEM.

WHAT CAN I DO?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

WITHOUT A WORD A GODLY

WOMAN CAN LEAD HER HUSBAND

TO FAITH, BY NOT SAYING

ANYTHING, JUST THE WAY SHE

LIVES.

I THINK THAT IS THE

ANSWER.

LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH THE

LORD.

SHOW THE RADIANT JOY OF

THE LORD IN YOUR LIFE.

AND HOPEFULLY YOUR HUSBAND

WILL GET FREE OF THE

DELUSION THAT HE IS

ENGAGED IN.

BUT HE'LL BEGIN TO SAY,

HOW COME YOU ARE SO HAPPY

IN THE MIDST OF THE

TROUBLES WE'RE HAVING?

AND YOU SAY IT'S BECAUSE I

HAVE JESUS.

Wendy: DANIEL SAYS,

"DEAR PAT, I WAS WONDERING

IF IT IS GOOD TO ASK JESUS

TO BE YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR

EVERY TIME YOU PRAY.

I APPRECIATE WHAT HE DID

FOR ME AND MANY OTHERS

AROUND THE WORLD BY DYING

ON THE CROSS.

I AM SAVED."

Pat: THE QUESTION IS,

YOU GET MARRIED, AND YOU

GET MARRIED BECAUSE YOU

LOVE YOUR WIFE AND BECAUSE

SHE IS GOOD TO YOU, YOU

GET MARRIED AGAIN.

YOU HAVE A PLEASANT

EVENING AND YOU WANT TO

GET MARRIED AGAIN.

YOU'RE MARRIED, SO STAY

MARRIED AND BE HAPPY AT

IT, AND GET ON WITH YOUR

LIFE.

I THINK IT IS THE SAME

WITH THE LORD.

YOU DON'T KEEP GETTING

SAVED.

YOU HAVE GIVEN YOUR HEART

TO THE LORD, HE IS YOURS,

AND YOU ARE BORN AGAIN.

Wendy: BUT IT MIGHT

BE FUN TO PUT THAT WEDDING

DRESS ON AGAIN IF IT STILL

FITS.

JOSH WRITES IN, "I'M A

REBORN CHRISTIAN.

I GAVE MY LIFE BACK TO

CHRIST BACK IN FEBRUARY.

SINCE THEN I HAVE FELT

CONVICTED TO DROP HABITS

AND CUT AWAY FROM A SINFUL

NATURE.

I HAVE STOPPED ALL HABITS.

I USED TO SMOKE AND I

MOVED TO A VAPOR

CONTAINING CIGARETTE TO

GET OFF NICOTINE.

WILL I BE PUNISHED BECAUSE

I STILL USE NICOTINE?"

Pat: GOD ISN'T

SITTING UP IN HEAVEN

WAITING TO PUNISH YOU

BECAUSE YOU HAVE A

CIGARETTE.

GOD IS GOD AND HE LOVES

YOU.

HE WANTS TO BE PART OF

YOUR LIFE, AND HE WANTS TO

SHARE HIS LIFE WITH YOU.

WHAT YOU HAVE DONE IS

CLEANED YOUR ACT UP, AND

YOU SAID, I WANT TO

PRESENT MYSELF HOLY TO THE

LORD.

SO YOU'VE GOT A VAPOR

MACHINE -- THE BIBLE SAYS

WHATEVER IS NOT OF FAITH

IS SIN.

IF YOU FEEL IT IS WRONG,

IT IS WRONG.

IF YOU DON'T FEEL IT IS

WRONG, IT'S NOT WRONG.

IT IS CUN O ONE OF THOSE THINGS.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LOSE

HEAVEN BECAUSE YOU HAVE A

VAPOR MACHINE IN LIEU OF

CIGARETTES.

GOD LOVES YOU.

Wendy: AT LEAST HE IS

TRYING TO GET OFF OF

NICOTINE.

Pat: YEAH.

YOU'RE WORKING AT IT.

BUT THAT'S NOT THE KEY.

THE KEY IS YOU LOVE HIM.

YOU LOVE HIM.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: GOD SAID TO

PETER, DO YOU LOVE ME?

YES, LORD, I LOVE YOU.

HE WANTS OUR LOVE.

Wendy: MICHELLE SAYS,

"MY PARENTS DON'T LET ME

WATCH ANYTHING THAT THEY

CONSIDER OF THIS WORLD.

SOMETIMES I SNEAK AND

WATCH A SHOW THAT I REALLY

LIKE.

I DON'T THINK ANYTHING IS

WRONG WITH THE SHOW, BUT

IT IS WRONG TO -- IS IT

WRONG TO DISOBEY MY

PARENTS?

I THINK THIS RULE IS A BIT

OVER THE TOP."

Pat: I THINK IT IS A

LITTLE OVER THE TOP, TOO,

BUT THE BEST THING TO DO

IS TO OBEY YOUR PARENTS.

THE PROBLEM IS IN THE

ANCIENT TRADITIONS, THEY

SAID, ALL RIGHT, HERE IS

THE LAW, OKAY?

NOW SOMEBODY MIGHT BREAK

THE LAW, SO LET'S BUILD A

FENCE AROUND THE LAW.

SO THEY'LL HAVE TO BREAK

THE FENCE BEFORE THEY GET

IN TO BREAK THE LAW.

AND BEFORE LONG, THERE ARE

SO MANY RULES AND

REGULATIONS.

AND THE NEXT THING YOU

KNOW, SOMEBODY BREAKS ONE

OF THESE, THEY THINK THEY

HAVE SINNED AGAINST GOD

AND THEY HAVE LOST THEIR

ACCESS TO THE LORD.

THAT'S WHAT TERRIBLE

LEGALISM WILL DO.

IT'S LOVE.

LOVE ISN'T A SERIES OF

RULES.

IT IS A LOVE AFFAIR WITH

GOD.

IT IS JUST LIKE WITH

MARRIAGE, IT IS A LOVE

AFFAIR THAT IS INVOLVED,

NOT A SET OF REGULATIONS.

PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND

IT.

THE TRADITION IS TEACHING

REGULATIONS.

GOD ISN'T INTERESTED IN

REGULATIONS.

HE IS INTERESTED IN YOU

AND HE TOGETHER AS ONE.

OKAY.

Wendy: THAT WAS IT.

Pat: WHAT HAPPENED TO

THE TIME?

Wendy: YOU DID SO

GREAT WE'RE GOING TO STOP

RIGHT HERE WHILE WE'RE

AHEAD.

Pat: IT IS NICE TO BE

WITH YOU.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM PSALM

91: "I WILL BE WITH HIM IN

TROUBLE.

I WILL DELIVER HIM AND

HONOR HIM.

WITH LONG LIFE I WILL

SATISFY HIM AND SHOW HIM

MY SALVATION."

THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING

WITH US.

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

WE'LL BE LOOKING FORWARD

TO TALKING TO YOU AGAIN

TOMORROW ON ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

AND WE'LL LOOK AT SAN

BERNARDINO PROBLEM, AND AN

INSIGHT THAT PERHAPS YOU

HAVEN'T HEARD BEFORE.

WE'LL SEE YOU ON

WEDNESDAY.

BYE-BYE.
