A man admits himself to the ER only to fight for his life. That’s when a miracle occurs. Read Transcript


Terry: SO MANY

CHRISTIANS ARE LIKE THIS,

AND THESE PEOPLE SCANDAL

LIES OTHERS.

AND THEN HE CONTINUED, TO

BE A CATHOLIC LIKE THAT,

IT IS BETTER TO BE AN

ATHEIST.

Andrew: HE WENT ON TO

SAY THAT THE LORD HAS

REDEEMED ALL OF US, ALL OF

US, WITH THE BLOOD OF

CHRIST.

NOT JUST CATHOLICS.

EVERYONE.

HE SAID, FATHER, EVEN THE

ATHEISTS?

EVERYONE.

THE VATICAN RELEASED A

STATEMENT CLARIFYING THAT

THE POPE WAS SAYING THAT

GOD'S GRACE WAS FREE TO

ALL, EVEN ATHEISTS.

PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT

THESE COMMENTS.

Terry: I'M GLAD THEY

QUALIFIED WHAT HE WAS

SAYING AFTERWARDS BECAUSE

THAT WHOLE UNIVERSAL

CONCEPT THAT EVERYBODY

GETS A FREE PASS --

Andrew: IT MADE ME

THINK THAT WE, AS CHRIST

FOLLOWERS, CAN READ HOW

JESUS WAS CRITICAL OF THE

HOLY ONES, AND WE CAN

MAYBE ROOT HIM ON BECAUSE

HE POINTED OUT THE

HYPOCRISY.

HERE IS THE POPE CALLING

ON THE CHRISTIANS SAYING,

WHAT ARE THE LIVES WE'RE

LEADING?

HOW ARE WE READING PEOPLE

ASTRAY.

PAUL IN 2 CORINTHIANS 5, I

THINK IT WAS, SAID WE ARE

GOD'S AMBASSADORS.

HE SAID, YOU ARE SALT BE

LIGHT, AND ARE WE LIVING

THAT WAY?

Terry: IT IS SO EASY

TO BE I'M LIVING MY LIFE

FOR ALL OF THE THINGS THAT

ARE ABOUT ME.

BUT THAT'S THE SURRENDER

THING.

WE NEED TO LIVE DIFFERENT.

Andrew: AND THE

POPE'S SENTENCE, IS IT

BETTER TO BE AN ATHEIST --

THE BIBLE IS CLEAR WE ARE

NOT TO LIVE LOOK-WARM

LIVES.

THAT'S A PROBLEM TO GOD.

Terry: WELL, WAS IT

GANDGANDHI, I WOULD HAVE

BECOME A CHRISTIAN IF I

HADN'T MET ONE OR SEEN THE

WAY CHRISTIANS ACT?

Andrew: BE AWARE OF

OUR WALK.

Terry: SHE IS A

CASHIER IN A BAGEL SHOP IN

THE UNIVERSITY, AND BOTH

HER PARENTS WERE ILL, AND

FRANKIE FELL INTO DEBT

CARING FOR THEM.

THEY BOTH PASSED AWAY, AND

SHE FELL INTO DEPRESSION.

Andrew: JUST LAST

WEEK A GROUP CALLED UNSUNG

HEROS STARTED A GO FUND ME

PAGE IN FRANKIE'S NAME.

SHE RESPONDED, AS LONG AS

GOD GIVES ME THE STRENGTH

TO, I KEEP GOING, EVEN

THOUGH MY BODY IS TIRED,

MY FEET HURT, BUT I'M

STILL GOOD WITH IT.

BECAUSE EVERYTHING I DO, I

TRY TO DO IT IN FAITH, IN

JESUS' NAME.

WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT

BEING CHRIST'S

AMBASSADORS.

HERE IS A WOMAN WHO

CONTEMPLATED SUICIDE AT

ONE POINT BECAUSE SHE

DIDN'T THINK SHE COULD DO

THIS ANY LONGER.

YET SHE SO IMPRESSED

PEOPLE WITH HER LOVE FOR

PEOPLE, HER WARMTH, PEOPLE

RECOGNIZED IT AND WANTED

TO BLESS HER.

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

I THINK SHE IS EXACTLY

WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

"I CAN DO ALL THINGS

THROUGH CHRIST WHO

STRENGTHENS ME."

NOT BECAUSE I'VE GOT IT

TOGETHER, BUT BECAUSE I'VE

SURRENDERED.

Andrew: AND PEOPLE

HAVE FOUND IT AN HONOR AND

PRIVILEGE TO BLESS HER.

> NETFLIX IS SET TO

RELEASE A DRAMA ENTITLED

"THE DISCOVERY."

IT IS ABOUT A DOCTOR WHO

HAS SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN

THE EXISTENCE OF AN

AFTERMATH.

THE SHOW IS EXPECTED TO BE

A HIT, AND BEGS THE

QUESTION: WHAT CAN SCIENCE

PROVE THAT HASN'T ALREADY

BEEN ADDRESSED IN

SCRIPTURE.

AND WHAT DOES THE BIBLE

SAY ABOUT LIFE IN

ETERNITY.

GOOD QUESTION, TERRY.

WHAT MORE DO WE NEED?

PEOPLE SAY, OH, NOW I

BELIEVE AND I WANT

ETERNITY.

BUT THE BIBLE MAKES IT SO

CLEAR IN JESUS' AUTHORITY

OVER NATURE, OVER DEMONS,

OVER SICKNESS, RIGHT?

AND WHEN HE WAS TEACHING

IN THE SYNAGOGUES, PEOPLE

SAW HIS AUTHORITY.

THE BIBLE IS CLEAR ABOUT

JESUS' AUTHORITY AND THE

AFTERLIFE ALREADY.

Terry: AND IT IS

CLEAR ABOUT FREE WILL.

GOD INVITES US, AND WE GET

TO CHOOSE.

THAT CHOSE IS PRETTY MUCH

MADE BY HOW WE LIVE OUR

LIVES, HOW WE TREAT

OTHERS.

SO HOW LIKE HOLLYWOOD TO

PRESENT A FILM WHERE

HEAVEN IS WONDERFUL AND

PEOPLE ARE COMMITTING

SUICIDE TO WANT TO GO

THERE.

Andrew: WELL, WE ARE

ROUGHLY SIX WEEKS FROM THE

START OF THE NBA PLAYOFFS.

DESPITE THE LOSS OF KEVIN

DURANT, THE GOLDEN STATE

WARRIORS ARE THE LEAGUE'S

BEST TEAM.

THEY HOME TO REGAIN THE

CHAMPIONSHIP.

THE WARRIORS ARE LED TIME

BY SETH CURRIE, WHO MAY BE

THE GREATEST SHOOTER IN

NBA HISTORY.

RECENTLY HE STOKE WITH OUR

TOM BUEHRING ABOUT HOW HE

HANDLES THE PRESSURE BOTH

ON AND OFF THE COURT.

YOU CAN'T GET LOST IN

THE DAILY ROUTINES AND

FORGET WHY WE'RE HERE.

SETH CURRIE IS AN NBA

CHAMPION AND BACK-TO-BACK

M.V.P.

HIS GROWING ACCLAIM RAISES

EXPECTATIONS.

IT DEFINITELY BECOMES

HARDER TO STAY AT THAT

LEVEL BECAUSE YOU HAVE A

BULL'S EYE ON YOUR BACK

AND YOU'RE UNDER WHAT YOU

CALL A BIGGER

SEMICONDUCTOR SCOPE.

MICROSCOPE.

Reporter: SETH HAD TO

FIRST DEAL WITH BEING

OVERLOOKED, ATTENDING

SMALL DAVIDSON COLLEGE

WHEN BIG UNIVERSITIES

OFFERED NO INTEREST.

AND NBA QUESTIONED HIS

SKILLS PRIOR TO THE 2009

DRAFT BEFORE THE GOLDEN

STATE WARRIORS TOOK HIM AS

THE SEVENTH PICK.

> ARE THERE DAYS WHEN

YOU COME IN HERE AND YOU

SAY, HOW DID I GET HERE?

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I

WAS DRAFTED AND I DIDN'T

KNOW EXACTLY WHERE I WAS

GOING, FOR A LOSING TEAM.

SO NOW, WHEN WE'RE PLAYING

FOR A CHAMPIONSHIP, IT IS

AN AMAZING JOURNEY.

I'M GRATEFUL OF THE ENTIRE

JOURNEY TO GET HERE.

Reporter: "HERE" IS

ORICAL ARENA.

FOR A CAROLINA KID, WHAT

MAKES IT A GREAT PLACE TO

PLAY?

IT IS SO CULTURALLY

DIVERSE, AND THERE ARE SO

MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE FROM

SO MANY DIFFERENT

BACKGROUNDS.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL

LANDSCAPE.

YOU'VE GOT THE BAY, SAN

FRANCISCO, OAKLAND.

THERE IS A LOT OF VARIETY

IN A VERY SMALL SPACE.

YOU CAN TELL THE PEOPLE

WHO LIVE HERE LOVE IT, AND

THEY RECEIVE US ON THE

BASKETBALL COURT SO WELL.

THEY SUPPORT US.

THEY'RE PASSIONATE FANS

AND CARE ABOUT WHAT THE

WARRIORS ARE UP TO.

Reporter: THE TEAM

THAT IS UP TO BE THE

ELITE.

WITH SETH RESETTING HIS

OWN NBA RECORD IN EACH OF

THE PAST THREE SEASONS.

> WHAT, FOR YOU, IS THE

MOST IMPORTANT COMPONENT

TO YOUR OUTSIDE SHOOTING?

CONSISTENCY WITH YOUR

BASE.

YOU LOOK AT THE GREATER

SHOOTERS IN BASKETBALL

HISTORY, AND NOT ONE

PERSON SHOOTS LIKE ANOTHER

PERSON.

THEY ALL HAVE A VERY

UNIQUE FORM.

THEY'RE THE ONES THAT CAN

REPEAT THAT FORM OVER AND

OVER AND OVER AGAIN, WITH

LITTLE CHANGE EACH TIME.

THEY ARE A MORE ACCURATE

SHOOTER WHEN IT IS

PRESSURE, OVERTIME, OR

NOT.

Reporter: WHERE IS

YOUR FOCUS?

IT'S ON THE ROOM AS I'M

SHOOTING.

WHEN THE BALL IS HALF WAY

UP TOWARDS THE RIM, I

STARE AT THE BALL AND SEE

HOW IT IS ROTATING.

YOU USUALLY KNOW AT THAT

POINT IF YOU'RE GOING TO

MAKE IT OR MISS IT.

Reporter: HIS SCORING

SKILLS ARE ON A FAST BREAK

OF THEIR OWN, QUICK ENOUGH

TO EARN SETH A REPUTATION

AS THE NBA'S GREATEST

SHOOTER EVER.

BUT OF ALL OF THE SHOTS

THAT THE BILLBOARD

TREASURES, IT IS THE SURE

SHOT THAT ANCHORS HIS

SOUL.

I LEARNED WELL FROM MY

PARENTS.

THEY SET A VERY, VERY HIGH

STANDARD OF WHO YOU ARE

AND WHAT YOU BELIEVE, AND

HOW JESUS CAN WORK THROUGH

YOU ON A DAILY BASIS, AND

THAT SHOULD BE ABLE TO

NAVIGATE YOU THROUGH

WHATEVER SITUATION YOU'RE

IN AND TO NOT BE ASH ASHAMED

OF THAT.

Reporter: GROWING UP

IN A BASKETBALL FAMILY GEF

SETH A NURTURING MODEL

SHARED AMONG TEAMMATES.

> THE BROTHERHOOD THAT

IS ON THIS TEAM RUNS DEEP.

HOW DOES CHRISTIANITY, THE

BROTHERHOOD AMONG

BROTHERS, PLAY INTO THAT?

FIND ACCOUNTABILITY

PARTNERS.

FIND PEOPLE WHO CAN

ENCOURAGE YOU IN YOUR

WALK.

KNOWING THAT NOBODY IS

PERFECT.

WE ALL HAVE STRUGGLES IN

OUR WALK.

FOR US ON THE COURT, WE

GRIND AND COMPETE ON THE

COURT, AND WHY NOT GRIND

AND COMPETE IN OUR

SPIRITUAL WALK AS WELL.

WE HAVE A GROUP CALLED THE

DISCIPLESHIP GROUP, WHERE

WE SHARE BIBLE VERSES

EVERY DAY AND WE SHARE A

BIBLE MESSAGE EVERY DAY.

AND WE HAVE 10, 11 GUYS

SHOW UP EVERY DAY FOR

30-MINUTE BIBLE STUDY.

Reporter: SETH SHARES

ENCOURAGEMENT FROM HIS

PLATFORM, DONATING BED

NETS BY EVERY THREE

THREE-POINTER HE MAKES.

HOW SATISFYING IS THAT FOR

YOU TO IMPACT LIVES HALF A

WORLD AWAY.

IT IS DEFINITELY

GRATIFYING.

MALARIA IS A DEVASTATING

DISEASE, ESPECIALLY FOR

KIDS UNDER THE AGE OF

FIVE.

THOSE PARENTS CAN'T

PROTECT THEIR YOUNG ONES

FROM A MOSQUITO BITE

WITHOUT OUR HELP AND

WITHOUT THESE NETS.

AND THIS IS AN ISSUE WE

CAN ERADICATE.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS

PREVENTABLE, AND WE'RE ON

THAT MISSION.

Reporter: SETH CURRIE

DOUBLE DRIBBLES HIS

DISCIPLESHIP INTO THE GAME

HE PLAYS IN INTO THE LIVES

HE INFLUENCES OUTSIDE OF

IT.

THAT'S THE HARDEST

PART, HOW CRAZY SOCIETY

AND THE PACE OF OUR LIFE,

AND WE NEED TO GET FED

EVERY DAY BECAUSE THERE

ARE DISTRACTIONS LEFT AND

RIGHT.

FIND WAYS TO IMPACT

PEOPLE WITH HOW YOU WALK,

WHETHER YOU SAY SOMETHING

OR NOT.

THEY CAN SEE SOMETHING

DIFFERENT ABOUT YOU, HOW

YOU CARRY YOURSELF.

Andrew: SETH CURRIE,

ALWAYS FUN TO WATCH HIM

PLAY AND SHOOT.

I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M OLD

ENOUGH TO SAY, I REMEMBER

HIS FATHER THE SHOOT

THREE-POINTERS.

INTERESTING.

THE LONG TIME CHA CHAPLAIN WAS

A PLAYER THERE.

Terry: I LOVE WHAT HE

IS SAYING, WHICH PLAYED

INTO EVERYTHING WE TALKED

ABOUT INITIALLY.

LET YOUR LIFE BE A

WITNESS, WHETHER YOU EVER

SAY ANYTHING OR NOT.

Andrew: YOU AND

COMMENTED DURING THE PIECE

HOW QUICKLY HOW THE BALL

GETS IN.

IT IS INSTINCT HOW HE

SHOOTS.

SOMETIMES WHEN WE'RE

HEARING THE HOLY SPIRIT,

IT IS GIVES US WISDOM

QUICKLY.

WHEN WE'RE HEARING WHAT

GOD COMMANDS US, THE WALK

CAN BE EASIER.

Terry: A NATURAL

RESPONSE.

IT IS GREAT TO WATCH HIM

PLAY.

IT IS REALLY INSPIRING

UP NEXT, HER HUMBLE JOB

DIDN'T PAY ENOUGH TO GIVE

HER CHILDREN A HOME.

FIND OUT HOW VALENTINA IS

THANKING GOD AND CBN

Terry: WE MAY TAKE A

WARM PLACE TO SLEEP FOR

GRANTED, BUT FOR ONE

FAMILY IN UKRAINE, IT WAS

AN ANSWER TO PRAYER.

> WHEN HER HUSBAND WAS

SENT TO PRISON, VALENTINA

HAD NO WAY TO PROVIDE FOR

HER CHILDREN.

SO SHE GOT A JOB AS A

STREET SWEEPER.

I WAS CRYING ALL THE

TIME BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE

A PLACE WHERE I COULD LIVE

WITH MY KIDS.

IT WAS SUCH A DISASTER.

Terry: THEY COULDN'T

AFFORD RENT, SO MOST

NIGHTS THEY WOUND UP IN

DILAPIDATED SHACKS,

SLEEPING ON THE COLD

GROUND.

BUT VALENTINA NEVER LOST

HOPE, AND ENCOURAGED HER

CHILDREN TO PRAY.

I ALWAYS KNEW THAT GOD

DOESN'T ABANDON THOSE WHO

LOVE HIM.

Terry: WHEN "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" LEARNS ABOUT

VALENTINA AND HER

CHILDREN, WE KNEW THE KIDS

WERE IN DANGER OF WINDING

UP IN AN ORPHANAGE, SO WE

BOUGHT THE FAMILY A HOME

OF THEIR OWN.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT

THIS IS VOLCAN ACTUALLY MY HOME.

NOW I KNOW WHEN I COME

FROM WORK, NOBODY CAN SEND

ME AND MY CHILDREN OUTSIDE

OUTSIDE.

Terry: AND THIS IS

THE FAMILY'S FIRST HOME

WITH RUNNING WATER.

I USED TO CARRY WATER

ACROSS THE STREET IN THE

WINTER, AND SOMETIMES IT

WOULD BE FREEZING.

NOW I CAN BATHE MY

CHILDREN IN THE HOUSE.

Terry: THE KIDS ARE

GRATEFUL FOR THEIR HOME

AND DO THEIR BEST TO HELP

KEEP IT CLEAN.

AND THEY'RE LEARNING TO

READ AND WRITE AT A

CHRISTIAN YOUTH CENTER

THAT WE SUPPORT.

I'M VERY HAPPY.

I'M VERY GRATEFUL TO GOD

THAT I HAVE EVERYTHING

NOW, AND THANK YOU FOR

YOUR KINDNESS.

Terry: I WANT TO ADD

MY THANKS TO THAT, IF

YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, BECAUSE YOU'RE

BREAKING THE CYCLE OF

POVERTY IN THE LIVES OF

THESE CHILDREN.

AS THEY BECOME EDUCATED,

THEY'LL BEGIN TO DREAM.

AND THEN THEY GROW UP TO

BECOME DIFFERENT THAN THE

FAMILY BEFORE THEM.

THEY'VE GOT A GRANDMA WHO

HAS COME AND FILLED IN THE

GAP FOR THEM IN THIS

LITTLE FAMILY'S SCENARIO,

BUT CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING

A GRANDMOTHER, I WANT TO

TELL YOU, IN THE WINTER IN

UKRAINE, IT IS COLD.

AND SHE HAS HAD TO MOVE

FROM FAMILY TO FAMILY --

NOT RELATIVES, BUT JUST

RELATIVES WHO SEE THEIR

NEED AND TAKE HER AND HER

GRANDCHILDREN IN.

AND PEOPLE KEEP THEM FOR A

WHILE, AND THEN THEY'RE

BACK OUT ON THE STREET

AGAIN.

BUT NOT ANYMORE, THANKS TO

YOUR GENEROSITY, "700

CLUB" MEMBERS.

ANDREW?

Andrew: COMING UP,

HIS FATHER WAS IN SURGERY,

BATTLING FOR THIS LIFE.

THE DOCTORS COME IN AND

TOLD ME TO BE PREPARED.

THIS ISN'T GOOD.

WE DON'T KNOW IF WE CAN

SAVE HIM.

I THOUGHT I WAS IN A

NIGHTMARE.

Andrew: DON'T MISS

THE MIRACLE THAT ENDED THE

Andrew: FRANKLIN

BRADFORD'S DOCTOR REFERS

TO HIM AS THE MAN WITH

NINE LIVES.

THAT'S BECAUSE HE CAME SO

CLOSE TO DEATH MULTIPLE

TIMES.

AT HIS LOWEST POINT, HIS

SON WAS PRAYING

DESPERATELY FOR HIS

HEALING.

THAT'S WHEN A VOICE TOLD

HIM EXACTLY WHERE TO TURN

FOR HELP.

OCTOBER 15, 2014, FRANKLIN

BRADFORD CHECKED HIMSELF

INTO AN EMERGENCY ROOM.

I WAS FEELING INTENSE

PAIN IN MY ABDOMEN AREA.

ONCE THEY GOT ME BACK

THERE, I HAD TO HAVE A

BOWEL MOVEMENT, AND IT WAS

ALL BLOOD.

THEN THERE WAS, LIKE, A

MAJOR PROBLEM.

Andrew: WITHIN

MINUTES, FRANKLIN WAS IN

CRITICAL CONDITION AND

TRANSFERRED TO RALEIGH

HOSPITAL IN WEST VIRGINIA.

BY THE TIME THEY GOT ME

OUT OF THE AMBULANCE, FROM

THERE I DON'T REMEMBER.

Reporter: IN THE

I.C.U., DOCTORS WORKED TO

LOCATE THE SOURCE OF THE

BLEEDING.

FRANKLIN'S SON, ADAM, WAS

THERE.

THEY WERE GOING TO COME

UP WITH A TREATMENT TO TRY

TO THICKEN HIS BLOOD.

IT WASN'T WORKING, THOUGH.

Andrew: OVER THE NEXT

FEW DAYS, FRANKLIN

CONTINUED TO HAVE EPISODES

OF PASSING BLOOD.

ALL OF THE DOCTORS COULD

DO WAS REPLENISH WHAT HE

LOST AND WAIT FOR THE

BLOOD THINNERS TO WEAR

OFF.

THE DOCTORS COME IN AND

THEY TOLD ME TO BE

PREPARED.

THIS ISN'T GOOD.

WE DON'T KNOW IF WE CAN

SAVE HIM.

AND I THOUGHT I WAS IN A

NIGHTMARE.

IT WAS A NIGHTMARE.

AND I JUST FELT THAT HE

JUST WASN'T GOING TO MAKE

IT.

FAMILY MEMBERS STARTED

GETTING THE INFORMATION

OUT, AND THEN ALL OF A

SUDDEN CHURCHES WERE

PRAYING AND DIFFERENT

AREAS WERE PRAYING.

Andrew: ONE DAY ADAM

WENT TO THE CHAPEL TO

PRAY.

HE WAS TRYING TO RECALL A

BIBLE VERSE HE WANTED TO

PRAY FOR HIS DAD.

THEN HE NOTICED A BIBLE

SITTING ON THE TABLE.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THIS

VOICE RESONATED ON THE

INSIDE OF ME AND SAID,

IT'S IN EZEKIEL 16.

AND I PICKED IT UP AND

OPENED IT UP, AND THERE IT

WAS.

"WHEN I SEEN YOU LYING

POLLUTED IN YOUR BLOOD, I

SAID UNTO YOU, LIVE."

I'M, LIKE, THIS HAS TO BE

REAL.

THIS HAS TO BE GOD.

Andrew: ADAM RETURNED

TO THE I.C.U. AND PRAYED

THE SCRIPTURE OVER HIS

DAD.

LATER HE HAD DRIFTED OFF

TO SLEEP WHEN HIS FATHER'S

VOICE WOKE HIM UP.

I'M SITTING THERE, AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN HE STARTS

TALKING.

HE STARTED SAYING, YES,

LORD, I THANK YOU.

I THANK YOU FOR WHAT

YOU'RE DOING RIGHT NOW.

AND MY DAD CONCLUDED

SAYING, YES, LORD, THIS

WILL BE FOR YOUR

TESTIMONY, FOR YOUR

GREATNESS.

AND THEN HE WENT

UNRESPONSIVE AGAIN.

I KNEW -- I KNEW DEEP DOWN

INSIDE THAT THIS WAS GOING

TO BE OKAY.

Andrew: THE NEXT

MORNING ADAM DISCOVERED

FRANKLIN WAS HEMORRHAGING

MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF BLOOD.

AND THIS TIME IT WASN'T

STOPPING.

DR. BRYAN WHITE WAS THE

SURGEON CALLED IN.

THIS GUY WAS LITERALLY

DYING IN FRONT OF OUR

EYES, AND WE HAD TO O DO

SOMETHING TO SAVE HIS

LIFE.

THE ONLY OTHER THING LEFT

WAS SURGICAL INTERVENTION.

THEY WERE LIKE, IF NOT,

HE'S DEAD.

AND MORE THAN LIKELY, HE'S

GOING TO DIE ON THE

OPERATING TABLE, BUT AT

LEAST IT'S A CHANCE THAT

WE'D LIKE TO TAKE IF YOU'D

AGREE TO IT.

AND I'M, LIKE, YUP, YOU

OPERATE.

WE GOT TO THE OPERATING

ROOM, OPENED UP HIS

STOMACH, AND THERE WAS A

HUGE ULCER.

THERE WAS A BLOOD VESSEL

IN THE MIDDLE PUMPING

BLOOD.

Andrew: AFTER FOUR

HOURS OF SURGERY,

DR. WHITE AND THE TEAM

REMOVED THE ULCER AND

REPAIRED THE OPEN BLOOD

VESSEL.

BUT THERE WAS STILL A

PROBLEM: HE KEPT BLEEDING.

THEY ARE, LIKE, HE'S

STILL OOZING BLOOD.

THIS BLOOD WAS STILL

THIN BECAUSE OF THEED

MEDICATIOTHEMEDICATION HE WAS TAKING.

Andrew: FRANKLIN WAS

PUT ON BLOOD THICKENING

AGENTS AND FROZEN PLASMA.

OVER THE NEXT TWO WEEKS,

ADAM AND OTHERS WATCHED

AND PRAYED.

IT STARTED WORKING.

THE BLEEDING STARTED TO

SLOW DOWN.

THE DOCTORS STARTED

SAYING, I THINK HE IS

GOING TO MAKE IT.

I THINK HE IS GOING TO

PULL THROUGH.

THAT WAS SOME OF THE

GREATEST NEWS YOU COULD

EVER HAVE.

THE FIRST THING I CAN

REMEMBER IS DR. WHITE --

HIM WALKING IN THE DOOR,

AND HE SAID, THERE IS THE

MAN WITH THE NINE LIVES.

Andrew: AFTER WEEKS

OF TREATMENT AND REHAB,

FRANKLIN FULLY RECOVERED.

IT IS A MIRACLE, YES.

I DIDN'T EXPECT HIM TO

DEFY THAT ONE, BUT HE DID.

JESUS CHRIST IS

AWESOME.

HE TELLS ME IF I TRUST IN

HIM, HE WILL TAKE CARE OF

ME.

AND HE DID, AND HE DOES,

AND HE IS.

THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE LORD.

PRAYER WORKS.

HE LISTENS.

HE LISTENS TO YOUR

PRAYERS.

KEEP PRAYING.

Andrew: WELL, IF

YOU'RE LIKE TERRY AND I,

AFTER SEEING THAT STORY,

YOU'RE READY TO PRAY AND

BRING YOUR CONCERNS TO A

HEAVENLY FATHER WHO CARES

SO MUCH.

WE SAW A SON WHO WENT TO

THE THRONE ROOM OF GOD ON

BEHALF OF HIS FATHER.

TERRY, WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO

HAVE WRITTEN US ABOUT ONES

THEY CARE ABOUT.

Terry: GEORGIA SAYS,

"PLEASE PRAY FOR MY

GRANDDAUGHTER, FEE PHOEBE TO

KNOW THE LOVE OF A

FATHER."

AND TAWANA SAYS, "MY

BROTHER IS HAVING CANCER

SURGERY.

PLEASE PRAY FOR HIM AND

HIS WIFE."

AND FRANKIE SAYS, "PRAYING

FOR RECONCILIATION WITH MY

SON AND RESTORATION AND

HEALING IN MY FAMILY."

SO LET'S ALL PRAY

TOGETHER.

THERE IS POWER IN THAT.

LORD, WE PRAY FOR GEORGIA

SPECIFICALLY, FOR HER

GRANDDAUGHTER, PHOEBE.

GOD, YOU ARE A GOOD, GOOD

FATHER.

WOULD YOU FILL THE WHOLE

IN HER HEART AND LIFE, AND

WOULD YOU TEACH HER TO

TRUST YOU AND TO LOVE YOU

AND TO FALL IN INTO THE

ARMS OF YOUR LOVE WHERE

SHE WILL NEVER BE LET GO.

> PRAY FOR TUWANA, WHO'S

BROTHER IS HAVING SURGERY

FOR HIS CANCER.

WE ASK YOU TO DO A MIRACLE

FOR HIM.

WHAT THE ENEMY HAS MEANT

FOR EVIL, WE ASK YOU TURN

TO GOOD.

AND WE PRAY FOR HIS WIFE

FOR HOPE AND ENERGY.

Andrew: FATHER, WE

READ SHERRY'S REQUEST, WHO

SAYS, I WONDER WHAT I HAVE

TO WAKE UP FOR?

HERE IS A WOMAN WITHOUT

HOPE.

THAT BREAKS OUR HEART,

FATHER GOD.

AND SO MANY ARE WITHOUT

HOPE.

SO MANY HAVE FEAR AND

ANXIETY AND ARE HOPELESS

AND DISCOURAGED.

FATHER GOD, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, RIGHT NOW TERRY AND

I COME TO YOU ON BEHALF OF

THEM.

WE PRAY YOUR HOLY SPIRIT

WILL INTERCEDE AND GIVE

JOY AND THE COMPANIONSHIP

OF YOUR HOLY SPIRIT WILL

RAISE THEM UP IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

WE PRAY FOR HOPE, FATHER

GOD.

WE PRAY FOR A RENEWING OF

THE MIND, LORD GOD.

POUR OUT YOUR LOVE AFRESH

ON THEM.

I PRAY FOR SWEET TIME WITH

YOU.

THANK YOU THAT YOU TELL US

WE DO NOT HAVE A SPIRIT OF

FEAR.

YOU HAVE GIVEN US POWER,

LOVE, AND A SOUND MIND.

FATHER GOD, FOR FRANKIE

WHO WANTS RECONCILIATION

IN HIS FAMILY, YOU ARE THE

GREAT RECONCILER.

YOU SENT YOUR SON, JESUS

CHRIST, TO RECONCILE

HUMANITY TO YOU.

WE KNOW RECONCILIATION IS

SO IMPORTANT BECAUSE YOU

HAVE DONE IT, FATHER GOD.

AND WE PRAY FOR FAMILIES

NOW WHO NEED

RECONCILIATION.

SO EACH OF US WHAT WE NEED

TO DO IN ORDER TO BRING

THAT ABOUT, FATHER GOD.

AND GIVE US AN ATTITUDE OF

CHRIST TOWARDS THOSE WHO

HAVE HURT US, LORD.

Terry: FATHER, WE ASK

ALL OF THIS IN YOUR HOLY

NAME.

WE WORSHIP YOU TODAY WITH

GRATITUDE IN OUR HEARTS.

IN JESUS' NAME WE PRAY.

AMEN.

Andrew: WE LEAVE YOU

WITH THIS WORD FROM

PHILIPPIANS 3: 7: "BUT

WHATEVER WERE GAINS TO ME

I NOW CONSIDER LOST FOR

THE SAKE OF CHRIST."

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, CALL

1-800-700-7000.

FOR TERRY MEEUWSEN, I'M

ANDREW KNOX, AND WE WILL

SEE YOU TOMORROW ON "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE.
