BELIEVES MIRACLES CAN BE A

PART OF EVERY DAY LIFE.

KATHRYN SHARES ABOUT LIFE

WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

GOOD MORNING AND WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

HERE IS EFREM GRAHAM WITH

THIS WEEK'S

TOP-FIVE-TRENDING STORIES.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

FIVE...

I THOUGHT WE WERE IN A

CAR-POOL KARAOKE, MAN.

Efrem: GOLDEN STATE

WARRIOR SETH CURRIE HITS

THE "LATE, LATE SHOW."

FOR A ROUND OF CAR-POOL

KARAOKE.

*

Efrem: AND MORE THAN

FIVE MILLION CHECK OUT THE

VIDEO OF CURRIE AND JAMES

CORDEN BELTING OUT DISNEY

TUNES.

*

Efrem: AT NUMBER

FOUR...

I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT

TONTONY ROMEO IS CHOOSING TO

WALK AWAY FROM FOOTBALL AT

THE AGE OF 27.

Efrem: IT IS A

BEAUTIFUL STORY OF

BROTHERHOOD.

THERE IS SOME RESPECT

THAT COMES WITH THAT.

Efrem: AND JASON

TWEETED THIS TRIBUTE TO

ROMEO SAYING, "THERE IS NO

ONE I WOULD RATHER HAVE

HAD NEXT TO ME ON THIS

JOURNEY OTHER TONY ROMO."

AND ROMO RESPONDED, "YOU

MADE FOOTBALL A LOT BETTER

FOR ME, AND YOU MADE MY

LIFE BETTER BY BEING IN

IT."

HE'S AWESOME.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

THREE...THE NATIONAL

GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL

PREMIERES A SPECIAL

EPISODE, JUST IN TIME FOR

THE RESURRECTION

CELEBRATION.

THE MOST HOLY TIME WAS

AT THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY

SEPULCHRE.

CENTURIES OF NEGLECT HAVE

LEFT THE TOMB SURROUNDING

CHRIST'S RESTING PLACE

CRUMBLING, AND NOW THE

CHURCH IS UNDERTAKING A

MAJOR RESTORATION PROJECT.

BUT THE CLOSELY GUARDED

SECRET KNOWN ONLY TO THE

MOST SENIOR CLERGY MEN IS

THAT AS PART OF THE

RESTORATION, THE WALK

WHERE JESUS WALKED, WILL

BE VISIBLE FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN CENTURIES.

Efrem: AS NUMBER

TWO...

YOU GET KNOCKED DOWN

AND YOU GET BACK UP.

YOU GET KNOCKED DOWN

AGAIN, YOU GET BACK UP

AGAIN.

Efrem: THE NBA's

JEREMY LYNN REVEALS PRAYER

IS THE WEAPON THAT HELPS

HIM HEAD IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION ON AND OFF THE

COURT.

AND IN AN E-MAIL TO HIS

PRAYER GROUP, HE

IDENTIFIED PASTOR TIM

KELLER AS HIS FAVORITE

AUTHOR, AND HIS BOOK

"PRAYER" AS THE GUIDE THAT

HELPS HIM IMPROVE HIS

PRAYER LIFE WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

ABOVE EVERYTHING,

EVERYTHING I HAVE, I TRUST

GOD.

I TRUST HIS WORD, HI HIS

PROMISES, HIS LOVE.

TRUST HIM TO DO WHAT ONLY

HE CAN DO.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

ONE...

JACKIE ROBINSON SLAMS A

TRIPLE TO LEFT CENTER.

Efrem: APRIL 15th,

1947, JACKIE ROBINSON

BECAME THE FIRST

AFRICAN-AMERICAN TO PLAY

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL.

THERE WERE TIMES WE

THOUGHT IT WOULDN'T WORK.

Efrem: JUST IN TIME

FOR THE 70th

ANNIVERSARY, THE STORY IS

COVERED IN THIS NEW BOOK,

"42 FAITH."

WRITTEN BY ED HENRY.

THE LONG STORY SHORT IS

HER LATE FATHER-IN-LAW WAS

A MINISTER IN BROOKLYN,

AND HE SAID HE WASN'T SURE

IF HE COULD GO THROUGH

WITH SIGNING JACKIE

ROBINSON TO THE FIRST

CONTRACT.

Gordon: JOINING ME

NOW IS EFREM GRAHAM.

LET'S GET INTO JACKIE

ROBINSON, 70 YEARS.

Efrem: APRIL 15th

WILL BE 70 YEARS SINCE HE

INTEGRATED BASEBALL.

I WAS ALWAYS CURIOUS ABOUT

HIS FAITH, AND FINALLY,

NOW, A BOOK WRITTEN, THE

REST OF HIS STORY, SAYS

TETHEY SAY.

THE AUTHOR SAT DOWN WITH

JACKIE ROBINSON'S WIFE AND

TALKED ABOUT THAT.

TO KNOW THAT HE HAD

DOUBTS, AND BEFORE SIGNING

ROBINSON, HE HAD DOUBTS

AND CONSULTED WITH A

MINISTER IN A BROOKLYN

CHURCH, AND SPENT, LIKE,

AN HOUR WITH THAT

MINISTER, PRAYING IT WOULD

MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION.

ALL THE OWNERS WERE SAYING

FOR HIM NOT TO DO IT.

AND FOR HIM TO TAKE THAT

BOLD STEP, TO KNOW THAT A

LOT OF PRAYER WAS IN THAT

DECISION.

AND TO KNOW THAT STORY AND

HIS LIFE WAS SURROUNDED IN

FAITH AT EVERY TURN, BUT

WE'RE NOW JUST HEARING

ABOUT IT.

Gordon: I'VE OFTEN

WONDERED, HOW DID THE

PEOPLE GO THROUGH THAT.

IN TODAY'S CULTURE IT IS

HARD TO IMAGINE, BUT BACK

THEN YOU WERE GOING TO BE

OPEN TO VILIFICATION.

Efrem: ABSOLUTELY.

Gordon: AND WHAT

HAPPENED TO JACKIE

PERSONALLY WAS HORRIBLE.

Efrem: ABSOLUTELY.

INDEED.

Gordon: AND TO SAY,

OKAY, I'M WILLING TO GO

THROUGH THAT, YOU HAVE TO

HAVE FAITH.

Efrem: ABSOLUTELY.

ABSOLUTELY.

AND, INDEED, HE DID.

AND THAT WAS PART OF THE

DECISION OF CHOOSING ALL

OF THE PEOPLE OF COLOR WHO

COULD PLAY BASEBALL VERY

WELL -- CHOOSING HIM WAS

BECAUSE BRANCH RICKY FELT

LIKE HE HAD THE FAITH TO

SUSTAIN THROUGH IT, TO BE

ABLE TO NOT RESPOND WHEN

PEOPLE WERE SHOUTING OUT

AND THREATENING HIS

FAMILY, DEATH THREATS, TO

REMAIN CENTERED AND FOCUS

KNOWING THAT GOD WAS IN

CONTROL.

THAT WAS ALSO PART OF THE

STORY.

IT IS A BEAUTIFULLY

WRITTEN BOOK.

I'M JUST INTO IT MYSELF.

IT IS WELL-TOLD, A STORY

THAT IS HIGH TIME.

Gordon: AND I THINK

IT IS CURRENT FOR TODAY.

AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT SOME

OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE

FACING TODAY, I'LL TELL

YOU, THE NATURAL TENDENCY

IS, I'LL JUST STAY HOME.

Efrem: YES, INDEED.

YES, INDEED.

Gordon: LIFE IS

SHORT, AND I'VE GOT BETTER

THINGS TO DO.

AND INSTEAD OF ENGAGING

AND SAYING, OKAY, I'LL

STEP UP, I THINK WE NEED

TO BE INSPIRED TO SAY YES,

THIS IS WORTH IT.

Efrem: ABSOLUTELY.

Gordon: AND IT IS

WORTH IT TO TAKE THE STAND

AND IT IS WORTH IT TO GO

THROUGH IT.

AND ON THE OTHER SIDE --

Efrem: WE'LL BE

BETTER FOR IT.

Gordon: BUT IT IS

TOUGH TO FACE.

AND FOR HIM -- FOR JACKIE

PERSONALLY, THE DEATH

THREATS WERE REAL.

Efrem: INDEED, THEY

WERE.

Gordon: THIS ISN'T

PRETEND.

THIS ISN'T WHERE WE'RE

JUST SENDING EVIL THOUGHTS

YOUR WAY.

THE DEATH THREATS WERE

REAL.

Efrem: YES.

AND HE WAS YOUNG AND

MARRIED AND WITH THREE

CHILDREN, AND THAT WAS

SERIOUS.

Gordon: AND YOU COULD

BE NO MORE.

AND WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM?

SO YOU'RE NOT JUST TAKING

YOUR OWN LIFE.

YOU'RE SAYING THE LIVES OF

MY CHILDREN.

> ALL RIGHT, LET'S MOVE

ON TO LIGHTER FAIR.

SETH CURRIE --

Efrem: ANOTHER MAN OF

FAITH.

Gordon: LET'S TAKE A

REAL TURN.

HE IS DOING KA CAR KARAOKE.

Efrem: THEY GET IN

THE CAR, AND HE ASKS, WHAT

DO YOU LISTEN TO?

AND HE SAYS, I'M A FATHER

OF FOUR, SO I LISTEN TO A

LOT OF DISNEY.

AND HE KNOWS ALL OF THE

WORDS.

Gordon: I'M AMAZED

THERE IS CHOREOGRAPHY TO

GO ALONG WITH IT.

Efrem: HIS TWO

DAUGHTERS, I'M SURE,

LEADING THE CHARGE IN

THAT.

IT IS NICE TO SEE BECAUSE

HE, OF COURSE, TAKES A LOT

OF HEAT THESE DAYS ON THE

COURT.

PEOPLE DEBATING WHETHER OR

NOT HE IS AS GOOD AS

PEOPLE GIVE HIM CREDIT

FOR, AND IT IS NICE TO SEE

HIM HAVE SOME FUN THERE.

Gordon: PEOPLE ARE

REALLY DEBATING THAT?

Efrem: I THINK IT IS

MORE NBA ENVY, AND THERE

ARE OTHER PLAYERS ON OTHER

TEAMS WHO FEEL LIKE HE

GETS TOO MUCH CREDIT, AND

THAT IT IS NOT WARRANTED,

BUT I'M A BIG FAN OF SETH

CURRIE.

A BIG FAN.

Gordon: HE IS A GOOD

PLAYER.

> ALL RIGHT, LET'S CYCLE

BACK TO PRAYER.

JEREMY LYNN SAYS HE USES

PRAYER AS A WEAPON.

Efrem: INDEED.

HE IS A HARVARD GRADUATE.

YOU REMEMBER A FEW YEARS

AGO, LYNN'S SANITY, AND

ALL OF THE HYPE AROUND

HIM.

HE WAS OUT FOR, LIKE, 26

GAMES AFTER SUFFERING

MULTIPLE INJURIES AND

THINGS OF THAT NATURE, BUT

PRAYER IS WHAT SUSTAINS

HIM.

AND HE HAS A PRAYER GROUP.

AND HE SENT A LETTER TO

HIS DIGITAL PRAYER GROUP,

JUST LETTING THEM KNOW,

I'VE BEEN READING THIS

BOOK.

THIS HAS BEEN HELPING ME.

I'M TRYING TO MAKE MY

PRAYERS BECOME MORE

CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD.

I WANT THAT TO BE SECOND

NATURE.

RIGHT NOW HE IS ON A TEAM

THAT IS DUBBED THE WORST

IN THE LEAGUE RIGHT NOW.

BUT HE SAYS PRAYERS HAVE

ALLOWED HIM TO SEE THE

BEAUTY IN THE TEAM, HOW

HARD THEY WORK.

HE FEELS BLESSED TO BE ON

THE UNDERDOG TEAM.

AND GOD HAS ALLOWED HIM TO

CONTINUE THIS NBA CAREER.

MANY THOUGHT HE WAS A

ONE-HIT WONDER AND HE

WOULD BE GONE --

Gordon: HE DEFIED ALL

OF THAT.

HE IS STILL IN THE LEAGUE.

AND HE IS STILL AN

EXTREME.

AND THERE IS STILL LYNN

SANITY.

Efrem: I'M STILL

CRAZY FOR HIM.

Gordon: AND

PERSEVERING THROUGH

INJURIES THAT SHOULD HAVE

TAKEN HIM OUT OF THE GAME,

AND NOW HE IS THROUGH

THAT.

YOU GO.

Efrem: AND HE DOES A

PRETTY GOOD JOB ON THE

COURT.

Gordon: REAL QUICK,

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC IS

GOING INTO THE CHURCH OF

THE HOLY SEPULCHRE.

HAVE YOU SEEN IT?

Efrem: I HAVE NOT

SEEN THE COMPLETE SHOW,

BUT I HAVE SEEN THEM PULL

BACK AND REVEAL INSIDE THE

TOMB FOR THE VERY FIRST

TIME.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL TO SEE.

THERE IS DEBATE IN ISRAEL

WHETHER IT IS THE CHURCH

OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE,

WHERE CRISIS WAS BURIED,

OR THE GARDEN TOMB -- I

HAVE TO ADMIT I SIDE MORE

WITH THE GARDEN TOMB --

Gordon: REALLY.

I SIDE MORE WITH THE

CHURCH OF THE HOLY

SEPULCHRE.

IT IS A NICE PLACE TO BE

AND TAKE TIME.

IT IS NICE TO GO WHEN

PEOPLE AREN'T THERE.

AND THEN WHEN YOU SEE THE

SUN GOING THROUGH THERE,

IT IS JUST BEAUTIFUL.

THERE ARE SOME WONDERFUL

CHAPELS ASSOCIATED WITH IT

THAT ARE MORE PRIVATE.

AND YOU CAN REALLY HAVE A

NICE TIME.

Efrem: THEY'RE DOING

A MAJOR RENOVATION ON IT

BECAUSE THERE IS TALK OF

THE FOUNDATION NOT BEING

STABLE.

Gordon: NOT THAT I

DON'T LIKE THE GARDEN

TOMB.

Efrem: THAT'S WHERE I

WAS.

Gordon: THERE IS

PLENTY OF PLACES TO PRAY

THERE.

IT USED TO BE CALLED

GORDON'S TOMB, SO I HAVE A

PREFERENCE JUST FOR THAT.

DON'T SEND THE E-MAILS.

I LIKE THEM BOTH.

I THINK FROM AN

ARCHEOLOGICAL STAPLES STANDPOINT,

THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY

SEPULCHRE IS BEAUTIFUL.

Efrem: INDEED.

Gordon: IF YOU WANT

TO SEE MORE, WATCH "STUDIO

5" ON ROKU, APPLE TV, ARE

OR GOING TO cbn.com..

> COMING UP, SHE IS THE

AUSTRALIAN PASTOR WHO SEES

MIRACLES HAPPEN WHEREVER

SHE GOES, AND HOPEFULLY

TODAY ON THIS SHOW.

SHE BELIEVES ALL OF US CAN

LIVE LIFE WITH THE POWER

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

KATHRYN RUANALA JOINS US

NEXT TO TELL US HOW, RIGHT

Gordon: HER MINISTRY

HAS BEEN COMPARED TO THAT

OF KATHRYN COLEMAN, AND

EVANGELIST KATHERINE

RUONALA TRAVELS SHARING

HER STORIES OF THE POWER

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AND SHE IS HERE NOW TO

TELL US HOW WE CAN GET AN

ALL-ACCESS PASS TO GOD.

Andrew: CAT KATHERINE

RUONALA SAYS THAT KIND OF

ALL-ACCESS POWER IS

AVAILABLE TO US WHEN WE

PRAY.

KATHERINE AND HER HUSBAND

PASTOR A CHURCH IN

AUSTRALIA.

AND SHE IS THE HOST OF HER

OWN TV SHOW.

AND TOGETHER THEY'VE SEEN

MIRACLES HAPPEN AROUND THE

WORLD.

IN HER NEW BOOK, SHE

SHARES HOW GOD MOVES IN

OUR LIVES AND HOW WE CAN

EXPERIENCE A GENUINE

ENCOUNTER WITH THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

Gordon: KATHERINE

JOINS US NOW, AND IT IS

DELIGHTFUL TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME.

Gordon: WHEN DID GOD

FIRST USE YOU?

I RECEIVED A WORD THAT

I WOULD SEE TUMORS

DISAPPEAR --

Gordon: LET'S BACK

UP.

MAYBE PEOPLE DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU MEAN

BY "I RECEIVED A WORD."

WHAT HAPPENED?

A MAN NAMED EVAN

MCCORMICK -- SOME OF YOU

MAY KNOW HE WAS STUNG BY A

JELLYFISH.

WELL, HE PROPHESIED THAT I

WOULD SEE TUMORS

DISAPPEAR, AND I WASN'T

EVEN A PASTOR BY THEN.

Gordon: I WAS DOINAND

THE NEXT DAY I HAD BEEN

INVITED TO SPEAK AT A

WOMEN'S MEETING.

AND A LOVELY LITTLE LADY

CAME FORWARD.

AND SHE IS A BAPTIST LADY.

AND SHE SAID, I DON'T

SPEAK IN TONGUES, AND I

DON'T FALL DOWN, BUT COULD

YOU PLEASE PRAY FOR ME

BECAUSE I HAVE A TUMOR.

AND I WENT TO PRAY FOR

HER, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

TOUCHED HER AND SHE DID

FALL DOWN.

NOT THAT YOU HAVE TO, BUT

IT IS JUST THE POWER OF

THE HOLY GHOST.

AND SHE SAID WHILE SHE WAS

ON THE FLOOR, SHE FELT THE

HAND OF GOD GO INTO HER

BELLY FOUR TIMES.

SIX WEEKS LATER, I HAD

GONE OVERSEAS AND I HAD

BEEN DOING A COUPLE OF

MEETINGS OVERSEAS.

AND I CAME BACK, AND

EVERYONE WAS SO EXCITED

BECAUSE SHE CAME BACK TO

THE DOCTOR AND THEY HAD A

REPORT SAYING THAT THIS

INOPERABLE TUMOR HAD

DISAPPEARED, AND HER

LIVER, WHICH I DIDN'T KNOW

ABOUT, WHICH WAS FULL OF

CIRRHOSIS, WAS LIKE A

BRAND NEW LIVER.

AND HER HUSBAND GOT SAVED,

WHICH WAS SO BEAUTIFUL.

Gordon: PANCREATIC

CANCER IS A DEATH

SENTENCE.

WHEN THEY SAY IT IS

INOPERABLE, YOU START

COUNTING MONTHS.

BUT JESUS.

Gordon: WITH HIM,

CANCER IS A LITTLE THING.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

IT IS HIS POWER.

WHEN PEOPLE LOOK TO HIM

FOR HELP, HE LOVES TO MAKE

HIMSELF KNOWN.

Gordon: WHY IS IT SO

HARD FOR US TO DO THAT?

I AGREE, THAT'S THE KEY,

LOOKING TO HIM AND RELYING

ON HIM.

BUT WE SEEM TO WANT TO

HAVE SOME KIND OF METHOD

OR I SEE PEOPLE THINKING,

WHAT IS THE MAGIC FORMULA

KIND OF THING.

WHY DO WE DO THAT?

I LOOKED FOR A LONG

TIME ABOUT WHAT'S THE KEY.

BUT IT IS NOT ABOUT HAVING

A KEY.

IT IS ABOUT KNOWING A

PERSON, AND THAT'S THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

BECAUSE FAITH WORKS BY

LOVE.

AND WHEN WE HAVE

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM,

SUDDENLY WE GET SUPER

NATURAL FAITH TO TRUST

HIM.

AND IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO

TRUST SOMEONE YOU DON'T

KNOW.

SO THE HOLY SPIRIT HELPS

US TO KNOW GOD.

AND IN KNOWING HIM, WE

HAVE THE CONFIDENCE TO LET

HIS LOVE FLOW THROUGH US

TO OTHER PEOPLE.

SO WE'RE NOT DOING

SOMETHING, PERFORMING

SOMETHING SO MUCH WHEN

WE'RE PRAYING FOR THE

SICK, BUT WE'RE ACTUALLY

MINISTERS TO GOD HIMSELF,

WHO IS LOVE, AND LETTING

HIM LOVE THEM IN THE WAY

HE DID WHEN HE WAS ON THE

EARTH.

HE SAID, HE IS THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER, AND THAT GREATER

WORKS WOULD WE DO.

AND THAT IS SO EXCITING.

THAT IS NOT JUST FOR

EXCLUSIVE PEOPLE.

THAT IS ANYONE WHO BELIEVE

THEY'VE BEEN CRUCIFIED

WITH CHRIST, RAISED UP

WITH HIM, AND NOW A NEW

CREATION IS IN HIM BY THE

SAVING GRACE OF JESUS.

Gordon: YOU SAID

SOMETHING THAT REALLY RES

THE NATED WITH ME.

RESONATED WITH ME BECAUSE

I USE THE SAME VERSE,

FAITH WORKS THROUGH LOVE.

I REALIZE THAT LOVE IS THE

BASIS OF IT ALL.

AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE

THAT, THEN STOP AND GO GET

THAT.

THAT'S THE KEY.

HIS LOVE ACTUALLY GIVES

RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND

JOY.

WHEN WE KNOW WE'VE BEEN

FORGIVEN AND WE'RE

ACCEPTED AND WE OPEN OUR

HEARTS UP TO REALLY GIVE

OURSELVES TO DAILY,

DEVELOPING RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHO

SHINES THE LOVE OF GOD,

THEN THAT LOVE RELEASES

THIS EMPOWERMENT TO TRUST

THIS ONE YOU KNOW LOVES

YOU SO MUCH.

AND INSTEAD OF TRYING TO

DO STUFF, WE GET TO REALLY

JUST LET THE OVERFLOW OF

THE PERSON OF GOD RELAX

THROUGH US.

Gordon: AND THE IMAGE

I LIKE TO HAVE WHEN I'M

DOING THAT IS, WHEN YOU

FLOAT ON WATER, YOU KNOW,

YOU'RE NOT TRYING TO DO

ANYTHING.

YOU ARE JUST TRUSTING THE

WATER.

AND WHEN YOU TRUST HIM,

YOU TRUST THE SPIRIT,

YOU'RE JUST FLOATING IN

IT.

WHAT WAS THE REVELATION

FOR YOU THAT GOT YOU

THERE?

IN MY EXPERIENCE, MOST

PEOPLE DON'T ARRIVE THERE.

THEY KEEP LOOKING FOR SOME

KIND OF WORKS ORIENTATION.

YEAH.

Gordon: WHAT GOT YOU

TO THE OTHER SIDE?

I STARTED PRAYING.

I READ IN THE BIBLE,

WHATEVER I ASK ACCORDING

TO HIS WILL, I CAN HAVE.

I READ THE PASSAGE IN

EPHESIANS 3, 14-21, ABOUT

THE HOLY SPIRIT

STRENGTHENING US, THAT WE

BE ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN

LOVE.

AND I WAS SO INSECURE,

DEALING WITH SO MUCH

REJECTION AND INSECURITY,

I JUST PRAYED THAT IN

FAITH, BELIEVING BECAUSE

IT WAS IN THE BIBLE, AND

IT WAS DEFINITELY THE WILL

OF GOD FOR ME.

I TOUCHED MY FAITH TO THAT

PRAYER, AND I PRAYED IT,

BELIEVING GOD WAS GOING TO

GIVE IT TO ME.

YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE ME A

REVELATION OF YOUR LOVE.

I DISCOVERED THAT IT IS

NOT A ONE-OFF REVELATION,

BUT SOMETHING THAT IS A

CONTINUOUS THING THAT HE

WANTS TO OVERFLOW US WITH.

AND WITHIN THREE MONTHS OF

THIS DAILY ATTACHING FAITH

TO DAILY SAYING THAT

PRAYER, I BECAME

TRANSFORMED FROM THE

INSIDE OUT.

I WAS ABLE TO TRUST GOD,

TO BE ABLE TO BE COMFORTED

IN THE REALITY THAT I'VE

BEEN SET FREE FROM ME.

AND NOW IT IS HIM WHO

LIVES IN ME, AND THAT HE

REALLY LIKES ME.

HE DOESN'T JUST TOLERATE

ME.

HE LOVES ME.

HE ENJOYS MY COMPANY.

AND HE WANTS TO MOVE

THROUGH ME, NOT AS A

REWARD FOR MY BEING GOOD,

BUT BECAUSE IT IS WHO HE

IS, AND HE WANTS THE WHOLE

WORLD TO KNOW HOW

WONDERFUL HE IS.

Gordon: AND IT'S WHAT

WE'RE CREATED FOR.

IT'S NOT SOMETHING YOU

WORK FOR.

IT HAS BEEN THERE ALL

ALONG.

THAT'S TRUE.

I USED TO SORT OF HAVE AN

IDEA IF I'VE DONE WELL AND

PRAYED WELL AND DONE ALL

OF THIS STUFF -- I USED TO

THINK THAT HIS POWER WAS

SORT OF A REWARD FOR BEING

GOOD.

AND THAT'S SO ARROGANT.

AND WHEN I REALIZED IT IS

JUST BECAUSE HE IS SO

GOOD, AND AS I GIVE MYSELF

TO RELATIONSHIP WITH THE

HOLY SPIRIT, SUDDENLY HIS

POWER JUST TAKES OFF.

AND WE'VE BEEN SEEING

OUTSTANDING MIRACLES.

Gordon: DO YOU HAVE A

ROUTINE?

I DO.

AND I'M REALLYED GLAD YOU

ASKED THAT.

BECAUSE RELATIONSHIP IS

SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE TO

DEVELOP THROUGH REGULAR

COMMUNICATION.

YOU COULD HAVE A FOUR-HOUR

ENCOUNTER WITH GOD, BUT IF

YOU'RE NOT SPENDING 10

MINUTES EVERY DAY READING

THE WORD AND

FELLOWHAPPENINSHIPPING WITH HIM

INTENTIONALLY, YOU WON'T

DEVELOP THE LEVEL OF

RELATIONSHIP.

IT IS LIKE A HUMAN

RELATIONSHIP, THE MORE YOU

COMMUNICATE, THE MORE YOU

GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER.

SO I'M DISCIPLINED ABOUT

SPENDING TIME EVERY DAY

WITH GOD.

I OPEN MY BIBLE, TALK TO

HIM, LETTING HIM RESTORE

MY SOUL, PUT SOME WORSHIP

ON AND I PRAY IN THE

SPIRIT BECAUSE I NEED HIM.

ANOTHER PRAYER I LIKE TO

PRAY, REVELATIONS 3, THAT

GOD WOULD GIVE ME EYES TO

SEE AND RECOGNIZE MY NEED

FOR HIM.

BECAUSE WHEN I KNOW MY

NEED FOR HIM, THEN I WILL

GO AND GET WHAT HE

DELIGHTS TO GIVE ME, ALL

OF MY NEEDS.

Gordon: AND IT IS A

HUNGER AND A THIRST.

AND THE DAY IS NOT RIGHT

UNLESS YOU HAVE THAT.

YEAH.

AND UNLESS YOU DISCIPLINE

YOURSELF TO DO IT, WE MISS

OUT ON THE DAILY BREAD

THAT WE SO DESPERATELY

NEED.

Gordon: I KNOW PEOPLE

WANT YOU TO PRAY, AND I

WANT YOU TO PRAY.

THERE IS A BOOK, "LIFE FOR

THE HOLY SPIRIT," AND

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A

WONDERFUL MIRACLE

TESTIMONY AND THEN WE'RE

GOING TO PRAY.

> WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF

YOU WERE IN CONSTANT PAIN

AND NOTHING THE DOCTORS

TOLD YOU TO DO MADE THE

PAIN ANY LESS?

THAT WAS THE QUESTION

FACING JILL HORSE.

IT WAS SERIOUS.

I THOUGHT I WAS DYING AT

TIMES.

I WAS HAVING EVERYONE PRAY

FOR ME.

Reporter: JILL HAD

BEEN SICK WITH PNEUMONIA

FOR OVER A MONTH.

ANTIBIOTICS WERE JUST

STARTING TO HELP WHEN JILL

ENCOUNTERED A NEW PROBLEM.

I WAS ASLEEP IN BED,

2:00 IN THE MORNING, AND I

WOKE UP AND FELT THIS BAD

PAIN IN MY NECK.

SO I WENT BACK TO SLEEP.

AND I JUST THOUGHT, IT

WILL WORK ITSELF OUT OVER

TIME.

WELL, IT DIDN'T.

Reporter: FOR DAYS

LATER, JILL WENT TO HER

DOCTOR, WHO DIAGNOSED HER

WITH A PINCHED NERVE IN

HER SPINE.

I COULDN'T BEND MY HEAD

BACK LIKE THIS, AND I

COULDN'T LIFT MY RIGHT

ARM, OR I COULDN'T FEED

MYSELF.

SO IT WAS JUST VERY

PAINFUL.

Reporter: JILL TOOK

PAINKILLERS AND SOUGHT

TREATMENT FROM A PHYSICAL

THERAPIST AND A

CHIROPRACTOR, BUT NOTHING

HELPED.

I JUST HAD TO ASK MY

HUSBAND FOR HELP.

HE HAD TO STAY HOME FROM

WORK, FOR LIKE THE FIRST

TIME IN 26 YEARS WE'RE

MARRIED, AND HE IS STAYING

HOME AND HELPING, DOING

THE COOKING, CLEANING, AND

LAUNDRY, AND I'M TRYING TO

DO EVERYTHING THE DOCTOR

TELLS ME TO DO TO GET

BETTER AND IT WASN'T

WORKING.

Reporter: JILL HELD

ON TO HER FAITH AND PRAYED

FOR HEALING.

I WAS PRAYING TO GOD.

I WAS ASKING ALL OF MY

FRIENDS TO PRAY.

I'M, LIKE, GOD I LOVE YOU,

I KNOW YOU HAVE A GOOD

PLAN FOR MY LIFE.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS,

BUT I'M GOING TO TRUST IN

YOU THROUGH THIS.

I KNOW YOU COULD HEAL ME

IF YOU WANTED TO, AND JUST

SHOW ME WHAT I SHOULD DO

NEXT.

Reporter: THREE WEEKS

HAD PASSED SINCE JILL'S

DIAGNOSIS, WITH NO SIGN OF

IMPROVEMENT.

I WAS WATCHING "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE" SHOW.

SOMETHING POSITIVE AND

ENCOURAGING, TRYING TO

LIFT MY SPIRITS.

AND THAT'S WHEN GORDON

ROBERTSON HAD THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'RE SUFFERING

WITH REDUCED FUNCTION IN

YOUR RIGHT ARM.

AND IT'S FROM A NERVE

DAMAGE, AND GOD HAS JUST

HEALED THAT NERVE.

HE IS ABLE TO RESTORE

NERVES IN JESUS' NAME.

I SAID, THAT SOUNDS

LIKE ME.

AND I COULD BEND MY HEAD

BACK FOR THE FIRST TIME.

I WENT OVER TO THE SINK,

AND I CUPPED A CUP OF

WATER -- AND I COULD NEVER

DO THOSE TWO THINGS, EVEN

ON THE PAINKILLERS.

AND I WAS ABLE TO DRINK.

AND I WAS, LIKE, WOW, I'M

SO HAPPY.

GOD JUST HEALED ME.

I WAS JUST PRAISING GOD.

Reporter: JILL

REGAINED FULL MOBILITY IN

HER ARMS AND HAS HAD NO

PROBLEMS SINCE.

SHE WENT BACK TO ENJOYING

HER ACTIVE LIFE, INCLUDING

A MISSION TRIP TO HONDURAS

JUST A FEW MONTHS LATER.

IT HAS HELPED ME WITH

BELIEVING IN THE POWER OF

PRAYER.

SO WHEN SOMEONE HAS A

NEED, I'M THERE TO PRAY

WITH THEM NOW.

A LOT MORE THAN BEFORE

THIS HAPPENED.

Gordon: WHEN SOMEONE

HAS A NEED, THAT'S ALL

THAT IS REQUIRED.

JESUS WANTS TO HEAL YOU.

HE WANTS TO BE YOUR ALL IN

ALL.

KATHERINE IS GOING TO

PRAY.

WE'RE GOING TO START THIS.

SO GO FOR IT.

FATHER, WE JUST SAY

THANK YOU.

YOU ARE THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER.

HOLY SPIRIT, I THANK YOU,

LORD.

JUST AS YOU HEALED

EVERYBODY WHO CAME TO YOU

IN THE SCRIPTURE, LORD,

YOU ARE THE SAME TODAY.

LORD, AS PEOPLE REACH OUT

TO YOU, I WANT YOU RIGHT

NOW, AS I'M PRAYING FOR

YOU, TO REACH OUT IN

FAITH, BELIEVING HE WANTS

TO TOUCH YOU.

AND, FATHER, IN JESUS'

NAME I THANK YOU.

I SPEAK HEALING TO YOUR

BODY.

M.S. HEALED IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

ARTHRITIS GOES IN JESUS'

NAME.

LORD, WE SPEAK HEALING IN

YOUR MIGHTY AND PRECIOUS

NAME.

THANK YOU, LORD.

JUST REACH OUT AND TOUCH

HIM RIGHT NOW.

JUST LIKE THE WOMAN WITH

THE ISSUE OF BLOOD,

REACHED OUT TO TOUCH THE

HEM OF HIS GARMENT.

SHE SAID IN HER HEART, "IF

I CAN TOUCH HIM, I'LL BE

HEALED."

RIGHT NOW JUST REACH YOUR

HAND OUT TO HIM AND SAY,

LORD, I NEED YOUR HELP.

I BELIEVE YOU WANT TO

TOUCH ME RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, I THANK YOU, LORD,

THAT YOUR POWER FLOWS

RIGHT NOW INTO THEIR LIFE

AND CIRCUMSTANCES, LORD,

THAT YOU'RE GOING TO HEAL.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO HEAL

MARRIAGES.

AND SOMEONE ELSE WHO HAS

BEEN SUFFERING FROM

INSOMNIA, RIGHT NOW THAT

THING IS BROKEN OVER YOUR

LIFE.

AND I SPEAK HEALING,

REDEMPTION, WHOLENESS.

SOMEONE ELSE WHO HAS HAD

TERRIBLE MIGRAINES, I

THANK YOU RIGHT NOW, HOLY

SPIRIT, THAT THAT PRESSURE

LIFTS OFF BY YOUR POWER.

YOU ARE THE ONE THAT

BRINGS FREEDOM.

YOU ARE THE ONE WHO BRINGS

WHOLENESS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR

HEALING.

AMEN.

Gordon: THERE IS A

MAN NAMED BOBBY AND YOU

HAVE A HEAD INJURY, AND

YOU HAVE A HELMET ON YOUR

HEAD AND GOD IS HEALING

YOU.

AND ANGELA, YOU HAVE A

ROTATOR CUFF TEAR AND GOD
