THIS WEEK ON "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS," ARE WE SEEING

THE END OF THE CHRISTIAN

CHURCH IN IRAQ?

ONE RESPECTED CHURCH

LEADER SAYS SOON THERE

WILL BE NO CHRISTIANS IN

THAT COUNTRY.

OTHERS SAY GOD IS JUST

GETTING STARTED.

> PLUS...IN PERU,

DEVASTATING FLOODS SWEEP

AWAY EVERYTHING IN THEIR

PATH, LEAVING BEHIND MUD,

RUIN, AND INFECTED

DRINKING WATER.

SEE HOW ONE TEAM OF RELIEF

WORKERS IS BRINGING FRESH

WATER AND FRESH HOPE TO

THE VICTIMS.

> AND...

I THINK IN MANY WAYS,

IT HAS BEEN A TRAIN WRECK

FOR 50 YEARS, IN TERMS OF

THE PEOPLE GOING THROUGH

THESE PLACES AND GETTING

SECULAR IECHED ANIZED AND GOING OUT.

SEE HOW THIS MAN IS

CHECKING THE SECULAR RULES

AT IVY LEAGUE SCHOOLS.

> WELCOME TO "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS."

I'M JESSICA CHOCO.

> A TERROR ATTACK JUST

OUTSIDE PARLIAMENT, THE

SUSPECT HAS BEEN

IDENTIFIED, AND THE POLICE

IN THE U.K. HAVE ARRESTED

AT LEAST EIGHT PEOPLE IN

CONNECTION WITH THE

ATTACK.

MEANWHILE, SOME ARE

LOOKING TO THE CHURCH TO

BRING PEACE IN THIS STORM.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: AFTER ISIS

CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY FOR

THE WESTMINSTER BRIDGE

ATTACK, THE PRIME MINISTER

DECLARED HER COUNTRY IS

FEARLESS.

WE ARE NOT AFRAID, AND

OUR RESOLVE WILL NEVER

WAIVER IN THE FACE OF

TERRORISM.

Reporter: ISIS CALLED

THE SUSPECT, WHO HAS BEEN

IDENTIFIED AS KHALID

MASOOD, A SOLD OF THE

ISLAMIC STATE.

HE DROVE A CAR ACROSS THE

CROWDED BRIDGE, PLOWING

DOWN PEDESTRIANS.

AND THEN HE RAN TO HIS CAR

AND WAS SHOT AND KILLED BY

POLICE.

MASOOD WAS BORN IN THE

U.K. AND HAD A LONG

CRIMINAL HISTORY, BUT NO

CRIMES WERE

TERRORISM-RELATED.

BRITISH AUTHORITIES HAD

INVESTIGATED HIM FORP

EXTREMISM IEXTREMISMIN THE PAST.

THEY ARRESTED MORE IN

CONNECTION WITH THE

ATTACK.

MEANWHILE CHRISTIAN

POLITICAL LEADERS ARE

CALLING ON THE CHURCH TO

BE A VOICE OF PEACE AND

HEALING.

NEEDLESS TO SAY, WE

HAVE ARRANGEMENTS THAT WE

NEED TO PUT IN PLACE.

AND WE NEED TO PRAYER THAT

WE HAVE A SPIRIT OF

COMPASSION, AND THAT WE

USE THE RIGHT LANGUAGE

WITH REGARD TO HOW WE

DISCUSS SOME OF THESE

ISSUES AND CONCERNS.

Reporter: AND PEOPLE

IN LONDON HONORED THOSE

WHO LOST THEIR LIVES,

INCLUDING KEITH PALMER,

THE 48-YEAR-OLD POLICE

OFFICER STABBED BY THE

ATTACKER.

HE WAS DOING A JOB HE

LOVES AND PROTECTING OUR

CITY, PROTECTING

PARLIAMENT.

Reporter: AND THEY

ALSO PAID TRIBUTE TO KURT

COCHRAN OF UTAH, WHO WAS

CELEBRATING HIS SILVER

WEDDING ANNIVERSARY WITH

HIS WIFE, MELISSA, IN

EUROPE.

THE ONLY WORD I CAN

DESCRIBE IT AS IS SURREAL.

ONE THING I COULD SAY

ABOUT KURT, HE LIVED HIS

DREAM.

Reporter: THE THREAT

ALERT REMAINS AT SEVERE.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

A WELL-KNOWN ANGLICAN

PRIEST WHO SERVED FOR

YEARS IN IRAQ SAYS

CHRISTIANITY IS NEARLY

GONE IN THAT COUNTRY.

CANNON ANDREW WHITE IS

KNOWN AS THE VICOR OF

BAGHDAD.

TODAY HE SAYS THE COUNTRY

IS SO DANGEROUS FOR

CHRISTIANS THAT MANY ARE

LEAVING AND THEY DON'T

PLAN TO RETURN.

HE ALSO SAYS THE TIME WILL

SOON COME WHEN NO

CHRISTIANS WILL REMAIN IN

IRAQ.

RECENTLY OUR GEORGE THOMAS

SPOKE WITH CBN CHIEF

INTERNATIONAL

CORRESPONDENT GARY LANE TO

GET HIS PERSPECTIVE.

George: YOU DISAGREE

WITH CANNON WHITE?

I DO.

WITH ALL RESPECT TO CANNON

WHITE, I FOUND THERE IS AN

UNDERGROUND CHURCH THERE.

THEY'RE STILL THERE AND

WORKING THE STREETS,

LEADING PEOPLE TO CHRIST.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, TENS

OF THOUSANDS OF YAZIDIS

AND MUSLIMS THAT ARE

HOMELESS, THAT HAVE BEEN

DISPLACED INTERNALLY,

THEY'RE IN NORTHERN IRAQ

NOW.

GUESS WHO IS REACHING OUT

THAT THEM AND MINISTERING

TO THEM AND LEADING MANY

TO CHRIST?

I'VE BEEN TO THE CHURCHES,

AND YOU HAVE, TOO.

WE HAVE SEEN MANY OF THE

PEOPLE FILLING THE

CHURCHES NOW ARE FORMER

MUSLIMS OR FORMER YAZIDIS

THAT ARE COMING TO CHRIST.

MAYBE THE TRADITIONAL

CHURCH IS IN DECLINE, THE

ANGLICAN CHURCH AND SO

FORTH, BUT I THINK THERE

IS A NEW THING GOD IS

DOING THERE IN IRAQ.

George: TALK A LITTLE

ABOUT THE CONDITIONS.

HE DOES POINT TO VERY

HOSTILE CONDITIONS THAT

MAKE IT VERY DIFFICULT FOR

CHRISTIANS TO SURVIVE IT?

BUT THERE ARE SOME WHO

HAVE STAYED BECAUSE THEY

WANT TO BE SALT AND LIGHT

IN IRAQ.

IF EVERYONE LEAVES, WHO IS

GOING TO STAY AND BE SALT?

George: DO YOU THINK

THE CHURCH WILL COME BACK

AT SOME POINT?

I THINK GOD IS DOING

SOME PRUNING, GETTING RID

OF THE OLD WOOD.

George: YOU HAVE A

DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE

ABOUT THE PERSECUTED

CHURCH AND WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN THE CHURCH IS

PERSECUTED.

I THINK YOU HAVE TO

HAVE AN ETERNAL

PERSPECTIVE.

IN THE FLESH WE SAY, MAKE

THE PERSECUTION STOP.

WE HAVE TO STOP THIS

SUFFERING AND THE HURT.

YES, NO ONE WELCOMES

PERSECUTION.

BUT CHRIST SAID, WE WILL

BE PERSECUTED.

WE CAN EXPECT IT BECAUSE

THE WORLD, WHO HATED HIM

FIRST, IS GOING TO HATE

HIS FOLLOWERS.

BUT HE USES THAT TO GROW

HIS CHURCH.

George: TALK ABOUT

WHAT THE CHURCH HERE IN

THE WEST CAN DO

SPECIFICALLY TO CONTINUE

TO STAND WITH OUR BROTHERS

AND SISTERS IN IRAQ,

SYRIA, AND ACROSS THE

LARGE SWATH OF THE MIDDLE

EAST.

THOSE YOU AND I HAVE

MET ALWAYS SAY THE SAME

THING, THEY ALWAYS SAY THE

FIRST THING THEY WANT IS

PRAYER.

AND THEN THEY SAY, WELL,

WE CAN USE SOME BIBLES,

TOO.

SO PRAYER AND BIBLES.

GET ON YOUR KNEES AND PRAY

FOR THESE PEOPLE.

BUT IN ADDITION TO THAT,

PUT YOUR FAITH IN ACTION.

DO SOMETHING TO HELP THEM.

THERE ARE MANY IRAQIS THAT

ARE HOMELESS RIGHT NOW.

THERE ARE MANY GROUPS THAT

ARE HELPING THEM, LIKE CBN

DISASTER RELIEF, AND MANY

OTHER GROUPS ARE HELPING,

"SAMARITAN'S PURSE" AND

"OPERATION BLESSING."

SUPPORT THEM AND HELP THEM

BECAUSE THEY'RE HOMELESS.

THEY NEED FOOD, CLOTHING,

WATER, EDUCATION FOR THEIR

CHILDREN.

THOSE TYPES OF THINGS.

SO WHY SHOULDN'T YOUR

CHURCH STEP OUT AND

SPONSOR SOME IRAQI

FAMILIES AND HELP THEM.

LET'S HELP THEM THERE

FIRST, AND THEN THOSE THAT

COME HERE, REACH OUT AND

DON'T BE AFRAID OF THEM.

REACH OUT AND SHOW THEM

THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

George: GARY LANE,

OUR CHIEF INTERNATIONAL

CORRESPONDENT.

THANK YOU.

A POWERFUL INTERVIEW.

WE ENCOURAGE OUR VIEWERS

TO KEEPERS HELP PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS EVERYWHERE IN

THEIR PRAYERS.

AND NOW THANKS TO

Facebook LIVE, YOU CAN

PRAY WITH US.

MAKE SURE YOU LIKE THE

C.W.N. PAGE ON Facebook,

AND TUNE IN AT 2 p.m. ON

TUESDAY FOR "CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS."

WE'LL SEE YOU THERE.

THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY

SEPULCHRE IS CONSIDERED

ONE OF THE HOLIEST FIGHTS

IN JERUSALEM CITY.

MANY BELIEVE IT MARKS THE

PLACE WHERE JESUS CHRIST

WAS BURIED AND ROSE FROM

THE DEAD.

CBN NEWS GOT A RARE,

BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT

A LONG OVERDUE RESTORATION

GOING ON INSIDE THE

CHURCH.

HERE IS CHRIS MITCHELL.

Chris: IT IS CALLED

THE EDICUL, A STRUCTURE

BUILT OVER WHAT MANY

BELIEVE IS THE BURIAL

PLACE OF JESUS.

AFTER YEARS OF NEGLECT, IT

IS GETTING A FACELIFT.

THIS IS A GREAT RESULT

OF THIS PHASE OF THE

PROJECT.

Chris: THIS PROFESSOR

OVERSEES THE PROJECT.

OF COURSE, NOW WE ARE

GOING WITH THE BOLTS AND

THE ANCHORS.

TO RE-ADJUST TO THE MAR MARBLE

SLABS WITH SOME MORTAR AND

CONCRETE.

WE ARE GOING TO ENSURE THE

STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY

THROUGH THIS INTERVENTION.

Chris: NATIONAL

GEOGRAPHIC FIRST

DOCUMENTED THE RESTORATION

LAST YEAR FOR A TELEVISION

SPECIAL.

THIS IS THE MARBLE SLAB

THAT WAS REMOVED FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN MORE THAN

200 YEARS.

BENEATH THAT, THEY FOUND A

SLAB FROM THE TIME OF THE

CRUSADERS, AND THEN A TOMB

THAT MANY BELIEVE WAS THE

TOMB OF JESUS.

WHILE MANY CONSIDER THE

CHURCH OF THE HOLY

SEPULCHRE THE SITE WHERE

JESUS WAS BURIED AND ROSE

AGAIN, OTHERS BELIEVE THE

RESURRECTION TOOK PLACE AT

THE GARDEN TOMB, NOT FAR

AWAY.

WHICHEVER SITE IS

AUTHENTIC, THE WORK IS

PRESERVING THE CHURCH FOR

YEARS TO COME.

WE HAD TO, OF COURSE,

OPEN THE HOLY TOMB IN

ORDER TO INSULATE IT FROM

THE GROUND AND TO PROTECT

IT.

THIS NUMBER, S3 E14,

AND THIS IS FROM THIS

PLACE OF THIS MONUMENT.

Chris: THE

RESTORATION IS LOOK

PUTTING A PUZZLE TOGETHER.

HE EXPLAINED HOW THEY

RECONSTRUCT THE MARBLE

SLABS SURROUNDING THE

EDICUL.

WE OPEN HOLES AND PUT

TITANIUM RODS BETWEEN THE

TWO PIECES.

WE'RE PUTTING THIS ON THE

SURFACE INSIDE.

WE ARE JUST JOINING THE

PIECES TOGETHER, LIKE

THIS.

OKAY?

AND THEN WE HAVE TO PUT

THIS PIECE VERTICAL SO

THAT THE WEIGHT OF THE

ABOVE -- TO GIVE THE

PRESSURE AND STABILITY TO

PUT THE PIECES TOGETHER IN

A PERFECT POSITION.

Chris: FOR THOSE

WORKING ON THE PROJECT, IT

IS NOT A JOB BUT A JOY.

WHAT WERE YOUR FEELINGS

WHEN THE TOMB WAS OPENED?

GREAT FEELINGS.

WE WERE FEELING THAT

WORKING ON THE TOMB OF

CHRIST, WE WERE NOT IN

JUST A MONUMENT.

IT IS THE MESSAGE OF

RESURRECTION.

IT IS THE HOPE AND THE

PRAYERS OF MLLIONS OF

PEOPLE.

YOU FEEL, WHEN YOU ARE

THERE, THAT YOU ARE IN THE

MOST HOLY PLACE IN THE

WORLD.

FOR MY MOTHER AND

GRANDMOTHER, THEY FEEL

VERY PART OF ME.

I'M VERY HAPPY EVERY DAY

TO BE HERE.

AND WHEN THE PROJECT IS

FINISHED, I WILL BE MORE

HAPPY THAN EVER IN MY

LIFE.

Chris: THE PROJECT IS

EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETED

BY EASTER.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY

SEPULCHRE IN JERUSALEM'S

OLD CITY.

COMING UP, WE'LL SHOW

YOU THE MOVEMENT AIMED AT

BRINGING OUR NATION'S

ELITE UNIVERSITIES BACK TO

THEIR BIBLICAL ROOTS.

Jessica: WELCOME BACK

TO "CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS."

WELL, CHRISTIANS HELP

START MANY OF AMERICA'S

MOST ELITE UNIVERSITIES,

INCLUDING HARVARD,

PRINCETON, AND YALE.

BUT IN MODERN TIMES,

THEY'VE SHED THAT

HERITAGE, BECOMING

DISTINCTLY SECULAR.

CAITLIN BURKE SHOWS US HOW

ONE MINISTER THRE MINISTRY IS FIGHTING

TO BRING THEM BACK TO

THEIR ROOTS.

Reporter: TO

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES, MANY

COLLEGE CAMPUSES MIGHT AS

WELL BE PUTTING OUT "NOT

WELCOME" SIGNS.

ONE WEAPON, ACCUSING THEM

OF FAILING TO MEET NON-

NON-DISCRIMINATION

POLICIES.

I THINK ABOUT THE WAY

THE SOVIET UNION WAS YEARS

AGO.

THEY HAD A FEW SHOW

CHURCHES TO MAKE IT LOOK

LIKE FREEDOM OF RELIGION,

BUT BEHIND THE SCENES THEY

DO A LOT TO SUPPRESS IT.

Reporter: MATT

BENNETT SAW A NEED FOR

MORE CHRISTIAN INFLUENCE

AT MANY UNIVERSITIES.

IT HAS BEEN A TRAIN

WRECK FOR 50 YEARS, IN

TERMS OF PEOPLE GOING

THROUGH THESE INSTITUTIONS

AND GETTING SECULARIZED

AND GOING OUT.

YOU LOOK AT THE TOP

LEADERS IN GOVERNMENT,

BUSINESS, EDUCATION, AND

MEDIA, ABOUT TWO-THIRDS OF

THEM WENT TO THOSE TOP 20

SCHOOLS.

Reporter: IN 2011, HE

STARTED "CHRISTIAN UNION"

TO SPECIFICALLY FOCUS ON

SCHOOLS THAT CONSISTENTLY

PRODUCE THE NATION'S

LEADERS.

THAT HAS LED TO 10 CAMPUS

CHAPTERS, INCLUDING ALL OF

THE IVY LEAGUES.

IF WE WANT TO CHANGE

THE NATION, WE'VE GOT TO

HIT THESE PEOPLE AND

MINISTER TO THEM.

THE CAMPUSES HAVE DONE US

A GREAT SERVICE.

THEY HAVE BROUGHT TOGETHER

SOME OF THE MOST

LEADERSHIP-MINDED,

AMBITIOUS YOUNG PEOPLE IN

THE COUNTRY.

OUR PART IS TO TELL THEM

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST AND

DISCIPLE THEM IN THE LORD.

Reporter: CHRISTIAN

UNIONS HAVE FACED SOME

PUSHBACK FROM UNIVERSITY

OFFICIALS.

BUT IT THEN IT HAS A MORE

AGGRESSIVE APPROACH TO

DEALING WITH

DISCRIMINATION, MAKING IT

CLEAR TO THE UNIVERSITY

THAT HE WON'T BACK DOWN OR

GO AWAY.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, THE

UNIVERSITIES END UP

RESPECTING YOU MORE

BECAUSE OF IT.

THEY KNOW THEY CAN'T ROLL

RIGHT OVER YOU.

Reporter: A PRETTY

RADICAL APPROACH THAT HAS

SEEN SUCCESS ON CAMPUS BUT

ACTUALLY MET RESISTANCE

FROM CHRISTIANS FOR ITS

AGGRESSIVE STAND.

HIS RESPONSE TO POINT TO

THE APOSTLE PAUL.

WE NEED TO BE FIRM

ABOUT IT.

WHEREVER THE APOSTLE PAUL

WENT IN HIS TRAVELS, THERE

WAS EITHER REACTION OR

REVIVAL.

SO THERE IS OFTEN

REACTION.

WE SHOULD EXPECT THAT IS

NORMAL AND TO NOT BE

AFRAID OF IT.

Reporter: WHEN

PRINCETON UNIVERSITY

REFUSED TO RECOGNIZE

"CHRISTIAN UNION," HE TOOK

A RULE FROM THE PLAYBOOK,

HIRING A CIVIL RIGHTS

ORGANIZATION.

THEY WROTE A LETTER TO

THE PRESIDENT OF

PRINCETON, AND SHE WROTE

BACK IN THREE DAYS AND SHE

SAID, YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY

RIGHT.

THEY DID THE RIGHT THING,

AND WE'RE THANKFUL FOR

THAT.

THEY DID IN THREE DAYS

WHAT THEY WOULDN'T DO FOR

US IN THREE YEARS.

Reporter: AND HIS

EFFORTS HAVE LED TO

POSITIVE RESPONSE FROM

STUDENTS LOOKING FOR MORE

THAN JUST ACADEMIC

ACHIEVEMENT.

THE STUDENTS ARE HUNGRY

IN THEIR SOUL FOR THE

THINGS OF GOD, JUST LIKE

ANYBODY ELSE.

IT CAN BE HARD TO BE IN

TOUCH WITH THAT WHEN

YOU'RE RUNNING SO HARD

AFTER WHAT'S GLAMOURIZED

AS SUCCESS IN THE WORLD'S

EYES.

BUT ALL OF OUR HEARTS

REALLY ARE CREATED, AS

AUGUSTIN SAID, FOR GOD,

AND THEY'RE GOING TO BE

RESTLESS UNTIL THEY FIND

REST IN HIM.

Reporter: CRAIG HEADS

UP YALE'S CHAPTER OF THE

CHRISTIAN UNION.

OFTEN TIME THEY COME

HERE AND REALIZE I'M NOT

THE GREATEST AS I WAS IN

MY TOWN, BUT I'M LIKE

PEOPLE JUST LIKE ME.

AND THEY CAN GET IN TOUCH

WITH THE NEEDS THEY HAVE,

WHICH ARE REALLY FOR THE

LORD.

HAVING ACHIEVED COMING

TO MY DREAM SCHOOL, BUT

THAT DID NOT SATISFY.

THAT WAS NOT IT.

THERE WAS STILL A LONGING

WITHIN.

AND A CONSCIOUSNESS OF

NEED IN ME.

I KNEW THAT SOMEHOW THAT

HAD TO DO WITH GOD, BUT

DIDN'T REALLY KNOW HOW --

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THAT

LOOKS LIKE.

Reporter: IN THE

MIDST OF HIS SEARCH,

KENNETH RECEIVED AN

INVITATION TO A CHRISTIAN

UNION BIBLE STUDY.

IT WAS THERE THAT I

THINK I WAS SEEING IN

SOMEONE LIGHT, JUST

WATCHING THE WAY HE WAS

TALKING AND THE WAY HE WAS

READING THE BIBLE, AND

THAT HE ACTUALLY LOVED IT

AND BELIEVED IT.

AND THERE WAS A REALITY

THERE, THAT I KNEW HE KNEW

SOMETHING I DID NOT.

Reporter: NOT LONG

AFTER THAT, ON THE FLOOR

OF HIS DORM ROOM, HE

BEGGED THE LORD TO MAKE

HIM NEW.

GOD MET ME THERE.

AND HE KNEW THE GUILT AND

THE WEIGHT OF THAT, AND IT

LIFTED OFF, AND THERE WAS

A JOY AND A PEACE I HAD

NEVER KNOWN BEFORE.

AND I KNEW I WAS IN THE

PRESENCE OF MORE THAN WHO

I AM.

Reporter: IN THE

COMPETITIVE, RIGOROUS, AND

STRESSFUL IVY-LEAGUE

ENVIRONMENT, YOUNG MEN AND

WOMEN ARE EXPERIENCING THE

FREEDOM ONLY CHRIST CAN

DELIVER.

NOW WITH THE SUPPORT AND

ENCOURAGEMENT FROM GROUPS

LIKE "CHRISTIAN UNION"

THEY CAN GROW THEIR FAITH

AND SPREAD GOD'S INFLUENCE

AROUND THE WORLD.

FAST-BOUND IN SIN AND

NATURE'S NIGHT, WHEN I

DEFUSED A QUICKLY RAY, I

WOKE THE DUNGEON FLAIMED

WITFLAMEDWITH LIGHT.

Jessica: COMING UP,

PRAYERS FOR THE PRESIDENT.

WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT ONE

PRAYER WARRIOR'S VISION TO

UNITE THE WORLD IN PRAYER

FOR DONALD TRUMP.

Jessica: COULD A BOOK

OF PRAYERS BY RANDOM

PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE

WORLD SHAPE A PRESIDENCY?

PAUL STRAND REPORTS FROM

WASHINGTON, THAT'S THE

VISION OF ONE GRADUATE OF

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

Reporter: VERONICA IS

A GOLF PRO AND PERFORMANCE

COACH, BUT ALSO A

DEDICATED PRAYER WARING.

SHE CALLED GOD HER TO PRAY

FOR DONALD TRUMP.

TRUMP WENT DOWN THE

ESCALATOR, AND GOD SAID TO

ME, PRAY FOR TRUMP.

Reporter: SHE ENDED

UP WITH 120 PAGES SHE

DELIVERED TO TRUMP.

AND THEN SHE HEARD GOD

SAYING, STEP IT UP A

NOTCH.

I HEARD THIS DOWNLOAD,

"PRAYERS FOR THE

PRESIDENT."

AND I THOUGHT, WOULDN'T IT

BE A WONDERFUL EXPRESSION

AND GIFT TO HAVE A

COMPILATION OF PRAYERS

FROM PEOPLE ALL OVER THAT

HAVE THE HEART OF THE

FATHER, THAT WAS PRAYING

FOR HIM.

Reporter: SHE

CONNECTED TO A GLOBAL

AUDIENCE THROUGH A

WEBINAR.

AND PRAYERS JUST

STARTED COMING IN FROM ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

Reporter: THE RESULT

IS "PRAYERS FOR THE

PRESIDENT," THE FIRST 100

DAYS AND BEYOND, WHICH

PEOPLE CAN TRACK DOWN AT

PRAYERSFORTHEPRESIDENT.ORG

.

WHEN GOD CALLS YOU TO

PRAY, HE PUTS HIS HEART IN

YOUR HEART, AND YOU CAN'T

READ THIS BOOK AND NOT

CRY.

AND TO SEE THE LOVE OF GOD

FOR THIS PERSON FROM

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD.

Reporter: VERONICA IS

BETTING MOST PEOPLE DON'T

REALIZE HOW WORLD-ALTERING

THEIR UNITED PRAYERS CAN

BE.

PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND

THE POWER OF PRAYER.

AS WE PRAY AND COME

TOGETHER AS A PEOPLE, THEN

GOD WILL HEAR OUR PRAYERS.

SO WE HAVE MORE POWER THAN

WE THINK.

Reporter: SHE SHARED

A COUPLE OF HER FAVORITE

WRITTEN PRAYERS FROM THE

BOOK.

HE HAS ALLOWED YOU TO

BECOME A KING.

I BLESS YOU TO ALLOW HIM

TO RULE AND REIGN IN YOUR

HEART SO THAT THE KING OF

HEAVEN WILL BE ABLE TO

RULE THROUGH YOU ON EARTH.

WE CUT OFF FROM PRESIDENT

TRUMP ALL OF THE

LIABILITIES OF THOSE WHO

WENT BEFORE HIM.

> I PRAY THAT YOU WILL

FORM IN HIM THE CHARACTER

OF A PRESIDENT MADE IN THE

IMAGE OF YOUR SON JESUS

CHRIST.

Reporter: VERONICA'S

HOPE AND PRAYER IS THIS

BOOK WOULD GET INTO ENOUGH

HANDS THAT 10,000 PEOPLE

COULD BE PRAYING THE SAME

PRAYER ON THE SAME DAY FOR

PRESIDENT TRUMP.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Jessica: FINALLY

TODAY, CHRISTIANS ARE

STEPPING IN TO PROVIDE

RELIEF TO SURVIVORS OF

MASSIVE FLOODING AND

MUDSLIDES IN PERU.

GARY LANE REPORTS

TORRENTIAL RAINS HAVE

BROUGHT DEATH AND

DESTRUCTION TO THE SOUTH

AMERICAN COUNTRY, BUT THE

DISASTER HAS ALSO BROUGHT

OUT THE BEST FROM THE BODY

OF CHRIST.

Reporter: YOUNG

CHRISTIANS FROM EMMANUEL

BIBLE CHURCH VISITED ONE

OF THE AFFECTED AREAS OF

LIMA.

THE PEOPLE RECEIVED

MUCH-NEEDED RELIEF.

THEIR CITY WAS FLOODED

AFTER A NEARBY RIVER

SPILLED OVER ITS BANKS AND

INTO CITY STREETS, LEAVING

MANY FAMILIES WITHOUT

HOUSING, FOOD, AND WATER.

Through Translator:

THE CALAMITIES HAVE FALLEN

ON THIS COUNTRY AND HAVE

AFFECTED MANY PEOPLE.

WE IDENTIFY FAMILIES IN

TOWNS LIKE THIS, WHERE THE

FLOODS HAVE IMPACTED THEM,

AND THE PEOPLE HAVE LOST

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: SINCE

JANUARY, WARMER THAN USUAL

OCEAN WATER TEMPERATURES

AND HIGH WINDS, A COASTAL

EL NIO, HAVE BROUGHT

TORRENTIAL RAINS,

FLOODING, AND MUDSLIDES

MOSTLY TO PERU'S NORTHERN

COAST.

THE GOVERNMENT SAYS SO FAR

AT LEAST 75 HAVE DIED.

MORE THAN 99,000 PEOPLE

HAVE BEEN AFFECTED.

THESE VILLAGERS EXPRESS

GRATITUDE FOR THE TIMELY

HELP THEY RECEIVED FROM

THE YOUNG CHRISTIANS.

Through Translator: I

AM SO THANKFUL FOR THIS

HELP.

WE NEED IT MORE THAN EVER.

WE ARE HUNGRY, THIRSTY,

AND THE PEOPLE DON'T HAVE

WATER, NO FOOD.

WE ARE IMPOTENT.

I FEEL BAD BECAUSE

CHILDREN ARE THOSE WHO

SUFFER THE MOST.

Reporter: ROSANNA,

OUR "CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS"

SPANISH CORRESPONDENT IN

PERU, WITNESSED THE RELIEF

GIVEN TO VILLAGERS IN

LIMA.

THEY HAVE BROUGHT NOT

ONLY MATERIAL, BUT ALSO

SPIRITUAL HELP.

Reporter: THEY HAVE

LAUNCHED #prayforPerry.

WE ARE PRAYING WITH

THEM.

A LOT HAVE ACCEPTED JESUS.

WE KNOW WE CAN HELP THEM.

WE KNOW WE ARE THE HANDS

AND THE FEET OF JESUS.

BLESSED ARE THE FEET OF

THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS

TO THOSE IN NEED.

WE HAVE MANY FAMILIES

AFFECTED.

AND WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL

FOR YOUR PRESENCE.

YOU GIVE US THE SPIRITUAL

SUPPORT, AND THIS IS VERY

IMPORTANT TO MOVE FORWARD.

Reporter: CBN IS ALSO

BRINGING TIMELY HELP,

PARTNERLY WITH PERUVIAN

CHRISTIANS AND OTHERS IN

THE AFFECTED AREAS.

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH PERU'S

JOINT COMMAND AND

SOLUTIONS AGAINST POVERTY,

OUR IN-COUNTRY DISASTER

RELIEF TEAMS HAVE

DELIVERED MEDS MEDICINES, AND

WATER, AND WE'VE PROVIDED

FOOD, CLOTHING, BLANKETS,

AND DRINKING WATER FOR

FLOOD VICTIMS IN THE

CITIES.

METEOROLOGISTS ARE

PREDICTING HEAVY RAINS MAY

CONTINUE THROUGH THE END

OF APRIL, SO CBN IS

ORGANIZING MORE TEAMS TO

BRING HELP IN THE DAYS

AHEAD.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

JOINING US THIS WEEK.

AND UNTIL NEXT WEEK,

GOOD-BYE AND GOD BLESS

YOU.
