JONATHAN Gordon: A COUPLE

RECEIVES DEVASTATING NEWS.

AND SHE SAID, MELISSA,

YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE BIRTH

TO YOUR BUIL LITTLE GIRL WITHIN

24 HOURS, AND SHE'S NOT

GOING TO SURVIVE.

Gordon: AND FINDS

PURPOSE THROUGH THE PAIN.

YOU CAN LET THAT

TRAGEDY FUEL YOU TO DO

SOMETHING REALLY GOOD FOR

A LOT OF PEOPLE.

Gordon: SEE HOW THEY

WENT FROM TRAGEDY TO

TRIUMPH, ON THE NEXT "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

> WELL, GOOD MORNING,

AND WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

WASHINGTON, D.C. WILL SOON

OFFER GENDER NEUTRAL

LICENSES AND I.D.s.

INSTEAD OF OFFERING ONLY

AN "M" FOR MALE AND "F"

FOR FEMALE, THERE WILL

SOON BE AN "X."

Terry: IT WILL ALLOW

INDIVIDUALS TO HAVE MORE

PRIVACY AROUND THEIR

GENDER.

ANY INDIVIDUAL WHO CHOOSES

TO HAVE ADDITIONAL PRIVACY

CAN REQUEST AN "X."

D.C. IS THE SECOND

JURISDICTION TO OFFER

GENDER NEUTRAL LICENSES.

OREGON WAS THE FIRST,

ALLOWING RESIDENTS TO MARK

GENDER AT NOT SPECIFIED

FOR LEARNER'S PERMITS,

IDENTITY CARDS, AND

DRIVERS' LICENSES.

Gordon: I DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO WITH THIS ONE.

Terry: I DON'T

EITHER.

DECLARE YOURSELF.

Gordon: THE REASON

BEHIND THE GENDER

IDENTIFICATION IS TO HELP

POLICE AND PARAMEDICS

IDENTIFY WHO YOU ARE.

I GUESS, WHY NOT HAVE AN

"X."

> IN OTHER NEWS, A MAN

IS BEING CALLED A HERO

AFTER HE WAS SOMEHOW ABLE

TO GET TWO DANGEROUS

CRIMINALS WHO HAD ESCAPED

FROM PRISON TO SURRENDER

TO HIM IN HIS DRIVEWAY.

PATRICK HAIL WAS TOLD BY A

FRIEND THAT THE FUGITIVES

WERE SOMEWHERE NEAR HIS

OWN IN CHRISTIANA,

TENNESSEE, BUT HE NEVER

THOUGHT THEY WOULD END UP

BEING IN HIS DRIVEWAY OR

THAT HE WOULD BE THE ONE

TO TURN HIM INTO POLICE.

PATRICK SHARED WHAT GOT

HIM THROUGH.

6:47, I PRAYED LIKE I

HAD NEVER PRAYED BEFORE.

I REALIZED I HAD TWO

EX-CONS WANTED FOR MURDER,

THAT JUST SHOT AT LAW

ENFORCEMENT AND NOTHING TO

LOSE.

AND FOR SOME REASON, THEY

STARTED TO SURRENDER AND

LAY DOWN ON THEIR STOMACHS

ON MY CONCRETE DRIVEWAY.

IF THAT DOESN'T MAKE YOU

BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST, I

DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL.

Terry: THOSE

FUGITIVES HAD KILLED TWO

PRISON GUARDS AND TAKEN AN

ELDERLY COUPLE HOSTAGE

BEFORE ARRIVING AT

PATRICK'S HOME.

THOUGH PATRICK HAD A

WEAPON HIM, HE DIDN'T EVEN

HAVE TO DRAW HIS GUN AT

ALL.

Gordon: I FIND THIS

STORY ABSOLUTELY AMAZING,

THAT THEY SURRENDERED TO

HIM AND LAID DOWN ON THEIR

BELLIES IN HIS DRIVEWAY.

AND NO WEAPON DRAWN.

Terry: NO WEAPON

AGAINST YOU WILL PROSPER.

WELL, SPEAKING OF SCARY

STORIES, CARLOS SANTANA

HAS BEEN THROUGH TRULY

DARK, SCARY MOMENTS IN HIS

LIFE.

HE ACTUALLY ATTEMPTED TO

KILL HIMSELF SEVEN TIMES.

HE SAYS IT IS ONLY THROUGH

THE GRACE OF GOD THAT HE

IS STILL ALIVE TODAY.

Gordon: HE SHARED HE

HAD A MISERABLE LIFE

GROWING UP, STARTING WITH

HIS FATHER ABANDONING HIM,

AND THEN BEING REPEATED

MOLESTED BY A FRIEND'S

FATHER.

HE SAYS HE BOTTLED UP HIS

GUILT, ANGER, AND FEAR,

AND AT ONE POINT HAD

VOICES IN HIS HEAD TELLING

HIM HE WAS WORTHLESS,

SAYING: YOU'RE THE LOWEST.

YOU'RE NOT WORTHY OF

ANYTHING OR ANYONE AROUND

YOU.

BUT THEN I WOULD LOOK AT A

PICTURE OF JESUS AND SAY,

HELP ME.

AND THEN VERY CLEARLY I

WOULD HEAR THIS ONE VOICE

THAT IS SOFTER AND LOUDER

THAN ALL OF THE OTHERS,

AND IT WOULD SAY: I AM

SITTING NEXT TO YOU.

ISN'T THAT ENOUGH?

ONCE I HEARD THAT VOICE,

SOMETHING WOULD SHIFT, AND

I WOULD BE ABLE TO FIND

JOY AGAIN.

SANTANA SAYS JESUS' VOICE

NOT ONLY GAVE HIM HOPE,

BUT HELPED HIM OVERCOME

HIS DEPRESSION, AND SHOWED

HIM THE LIFE-CHANGING

POWER OF FORGIVENESS.

THAT IS A WONDERFUL THING.

HERE IS A ROCK AND ROLL

LEGEND, AND YOU DON'T KNOW

THE BACK STORY, YOU DON'T

KNOW THE HIDDEN STORY OF

HIS LIFE.

ISN'T IT WONDERFUL THAT

GOD WAS THERE FOR HIM.

I'M SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO

YOU.

Terry: IT IS KIND OF

A WORD FOR ALL OF US.

JUST THAT WE DON'T

UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER'S

JOURNEYS.

WE DON'T KNOW WHERE WE'VE

COME FROM.

THE SAME GRACE AND MERCY

THAT GOD APPLIES TO US, WE

NEED TO BE WILLING TO GIVE

TO EACH OTHER.

WHO KNEW?

I HAD NO IDEA SANTANA WAS

A BELIEVER, AND THEN TO

HEAR A BACK STORY LIKE

THAT IS PRETTY AMAZING.

Gordon: GRACE.

> WELL, SPEAKING ABOUT

FORGIVENESS, PASTORS ROCK PASTORS RICK

AND KATE WARREN SAY IT HAS

BEEN INSTRUMENTAL IN THEIR

MARRIAGE.

KATE RECENTLY SHARED THAT

THE EARLY YEARS OF THEIR

MARRIAGE WERE MISERABLE,

AND EVERYONE THOUGHT THEY

WERE PERFECT.

Terry: KATE SHARED

THAT THE SEXUAL ABUSE

PLAYED INTO HER BAD

MARRIAGE, AND SHE HAD AN

ADDICTION WITH

PORNOGRAPHY.

I WAS TORN APART ON THE

INSIDE, AND WORST OF ALL,

I COULDN'T TELL ANYONE

ABOUT IT.

WELL, CA KAY AND RICK HAD

MARITAL COUNSELLING, AND

THEIR MARRIAGE SLOWLY

BEGAN TO HEAL.

AND THEY HAVE OVERCOME

MANY OBSTACLES, INCLUDING

BREAST CANCER AND THE

MENTAL ILLNESS AND SUICIDE

OF THEIR YOUNGER SON,

MATTHEW.

ALL OF THOSE THINGS ARE

STRUGGLES AND CHALLENGES,

TO BE CERTAIN, BUT TO GO

THROUGH THEM WHEN YOU'RE

SO PUBLICLY VIEWED AND

LIFTED UP.

Gordon:

CONGRATULATIONS TO THEM

FOR COMING OUT AND, IF YOU

WILL, AND SAYING, HERE ARE

THE STRUGGLES THAT WE'VE

HAD.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO DO

THAT.

I HOPE IT HELPS OTHER

COUPLES.

ONE OF MY SLOGANS IS: LOVE

IS BLIND; MARRIAGE IS THE

EYE-OPENER.

WE ALL BRING BAGGAGE INTO

OUR MARRIAGES.

HOW DO WE DEAL WITH THAT

IN THE CONTEXT OF CHURCH?

AND SO OFTEN WITHIN

CHURCH, YOU FEAR BRINGING

YOUR ISSUES.

Terry: BEING KNOWN.

Gordon: AND YOU FEAR

IT ON THE BASIS THAT

YOU'LL BE JUDGED.

Terry: AND BECAUSE OF

THAT, YOU FEAR GETTING

HELP.

I REALLY APPLAUD THEM FOR

DOING THAT.

DON'T WAIT UNTIL IT IS SO

LATE THAT YOU DON'T WANT

TO FIX IT ANYMORE.

GET HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT.

Gordon: RAISE YOUR

HAND.

GET HELP.

DON'T SUFFER ALONE.

SIN ALWAYS WANTS TO PUT

SHAME, GUILT, CONDEMNATION

ON YOU.

AND JESUS ALWAYS WANTS YOU

FREE.

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, YOU MAY KNOW THEM FROM

"SHARK TANK," THE COUPLE

WHO STARTED A COMPANY IN

THE MIDST OF TRAGEDY.

AND SO I HAD A LITTLE

BABY GIRL, HALLE, SHORT

FOR HALLELUJAH, AND SHE

WAS PERFECT, BUT JUST TOO

LITTLE TO MAKE IT.

Terry: THEY SHARE HOW

THEY TURNED THEIR LOSS

INTO THE GREATEST VICTORY,

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: RICK AND

MELISSA WERE HEARTBROKEN

AFTER THEIR FIRST CHILD

WAS UNABLE TO SURVIVE A

PREMATURE BIRTH.

BUT THEY TURNED THAT LOSS

INTO FUEL FOR HELPING

CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD.

TAKE A LOOK.

YOU MARRY, FIND OUT

YOUR EXPECTING A CHILD.

WHAT HAPPENED?

YOU KNOW, WE HAD, FOR A

LONG TIME, WANTED A

FAMILY.

WHEN WE DID FIND OUT WE

WERE PREGNANT, WE WERE

ESTATIC.

I'M ABOUT HALF WAY

THROUGH THE PREGNANCY, AND

I WAS AT A ROUTINE

DOCTOR'S VISIT.

SUDDENLY THE DOCTOR LOOKED

AT ME, AND I COULD TELL

SOMETHING WAS WRONG.

Efrem: JUST FROM THE

LOOK?

YEAH.

> AND SHE SAID, MELISSA,

YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE BIRTH

TO YOUR LITTLE GIRL WITHIN

24 HOURS, AND SHE'S NOT

GOING TO SURVIVE.

THEY WHEELED ME RIGHT FROM

THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE INTO A

HOSPITAL BED STRAIGHT INTO

EMERGENCY SURGERY.

THE DOCTOR SAID, WE'LL DO

ALL THAT WE CAN TO TRY TO

SAVE HER, BUT THE CHANCES

ARE VERY, VERY SLIM.

THE SURGERY WAS

SUCCESSFUL, WHICH WAS

GREAT, BUT I WAS

CONSIDERED VERY, VERY,

VERY HIGH RISK.

SO HIGH RISK THAT I WASN'T

ABLE TO EVEN GET OUT OF

THE HOSPITAL BED.

Efrem: DID YOU PICK

UP KNITTING AT THIS TIME?

I DID.

I STARTED WITH A VISION TO

MAKE THIS LITTLE BABY GIRL

A BLANKET.

I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR

A LITTLE OVER TWO WEEKS,

ALMOST THREE WEEKS.

MY WATER BROKE, AND THE

DOCTORS CAME IN AND SAID,

AT THIS POINT, THERE IS

NOTHING ELSE WE CAN DO.

HER LUNGS WEREN'T

DEVELOPED ENOUGH TO MAKE

IT.

SO I HAD MY LITTLE BABY

GIRL, HALLE, SHORT FOR

HALLELUJAH.

AND SHE WAS PERFECT, BUT

JUST TOO LITTLE TO MAKE

IT.

Efrem: SO AS THIS IS

ALL UNFOLDING, I'M

CURIOUS, WHAT WERE YOUR

PRAYERS AND CONVERSATIONS

WITH GOD LIKE?

YOU KNOW, I'LL NEVER

FORGET RICK COMING INTO

THE ROOM AFTER HALLE WAS

BORN AND LOOKING AT ME AND

SAYING, MELISSA, WE HAVE A

DECISION TO MAKE: WE CAN

EITHER BE MAD AND BITTER

AT GOD AND WONDER WHY

WOULD A GOOD GOD CAUSE

THIS TO HAPPEN?

OR WE CAN CHOOSE TO

BELIEVE THAT SOMETHING --

SOMEHOW SOMETHING IS GOING

TO COME FROM THIS.

Efrem: WHAT HAPPENED

WITH THE BLANKET THAT YOU

STARTED TO KNIT FOR HAL

LE?

>LE? I STILL HAVE IT.

AFTER WE LOST HER AND I

GOT BACK FROM THE

HOSPITAL, I CONTINUED TO

MAKE IT.

A LOT OF HEALING CAME FROM

CONTINUING TO MAKE THAT

BLANKET.

JUST TEARS SHED OVER THAT

YARN, OVER THAT FABRIC,

AND GOD JUST REALLY

SPEAKING ME THROUGH IT.

Efrem: IN TERMS OF

MAKING THINGS WITH YOUR

HANDS, THAT'S NOT YOUR

LIFE'S WORK.

LET'S GET TO THE BEGINNING

OF THAT.

OKAY.

Efrem: SO YOU GET OUT

OF THE HOSPITAL, AND YOUR

KNITTING SOCKS FOR

YOURSELF?

YES.

I JUST CONTINUED TO MAKE

THINGS.

ONE DAY I WANTED TO MAKE A

PAIR OF SOCKS THAT HAD

LACE ON THE TOP OF THEM TO

STICK OUT OF THE TOP OF MY

BOOTS.

BECAUSE THEY TOOK SO LONG,

EVERYWHERE I WENT, I WORE

THEM.

STRANGERS WOULD STOP ME

AND SAY, OH, MY GOSH,

WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE

SOCKS.

AND THEY WOULD BE, LIKE,

CAN I WRITE DOWN YOUR

PHONE NUMBER, CAN YOU MAKE

A PAIR FOR ME?

MY ENTREPRENEUR HUSBAND

SAID, WHY DON'T YOU PUT

THEM UP ONLINE.

IN A MATTER OF THREE DAYS,

WE HAD OVER 300 PURCHASE

ORDERS FOR THIS ONE PAIR

OF SOCKS.

Efrem: YOU HAD AN

IDEA TO PITCH THIS

BUSINESS TO "SHARK TANK."

I'M ON A PHONE CALL

WITH AN INTERNET MARKETING

GENIUS, A GOOD BUDDY, AND

HE SAID, I REALLY FEEL

LIKE YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE

ON "SHARK TANK."

AND HE SAID, LET ME MAKE A

CALL.

AND THE PRODUCERS SAID, WE

LOVE IT.

WE'RE GOING TO BUMP YOU UP

TO THE VERY FRONT.

I PRAYED FOR SEVERAL

MONTHS, AND VERY CLEARLY I

HEARD BARBARA CORCORAN.

OUR COMPANY IS "GRACE

AND LACE," AND WE'RE

SEEKING $110,000 FOR A 10%

STAKE IN OUR COMPANY.

OUR FIRST YEAR, WE DID

OVER $800,000.

OUR LAST 12 MONTHS, TO

DATE, WE DID $

$1.25 MILLION.

AFTER AN HOUR AND A HALF

OF BACK AND FORTH, BARBARA

SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT?

I'M GOING TO CHANGE MY

OFFER.

I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU THE

FULL OFFER.

FINALLY.

OH, MY GOODNESS.

WE WERE ELATED, ABSOLUTELY

ELATED.

Efrem: HOW MUCH HAS

THE BUSINESS GROWN?

WHEN WE HAD AIRED

WEBSTER HAD DONE A LITTLE

OVER A MILLION DOLLARS IN

SALES.

AND WE'VE NOW DONE OVER

$25 MILLION IN SALES.

WE'RE BLOWN AWAY BY WHAT

GOD HAS DONE.

Efrem: ALL OF THIS

STARTS IN THE HOSPITAL

WHERE YOU LOSE A CHILD,

AND YOU GUYS ARE NOW

HELPING GIVE HOMES TO

ORPHANS.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT

PARTNERSHIP.

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

NEVER IN A MILLION

YEARS WOULD I HAVE EVER

THOUGHT WE WOULD HAVE A

BUSINESS THAT WOULD BE SO

SUCCESSFUL WE COULD

ACTUALLY BUILD ORPHANAGES

AND TAKE HUNDREDS OF KIDS

OFF THE STREETS.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE'VE

DONE.

WE'VE PARTNERED WITH

"ANGEL HOUSE," AND WE HAVE

BUILT SEVEN ORPHANAGES.

Efrem: DO YOU HAVE

SOME GOALS IN MIND?

ABSOLUTELY.

FROM DAY ONE, WE SAID 100

PLUS.

THAT CAN MEAN 1,000.

IT CAN MEAN 10,000.

I DON'T KNOW.

I THINK THIS JOURNEY HAS

TAUGHT US THAT GOD HAS SO

MUCH MORE IN STORE THAT WE

CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE.

EVERYONE OUT THERE GOES

THROUGH DIFFICULT TIMES.

YOU DON'T GET THROUGH THIS

LIFE WITHOUT IT.

AND TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A

STORY OF LETTING PEOPLE

KNOW AND ENCOURAGING

PEOPLE JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE

GONE THROUGH SOMETHING

REALLY DIFFICULT, DOESN'T

MEAN YOU HAVE TO PACK IT

IN.

IT DOESN'T MEAN HAVE YOU

TO BE MAD OR BITTER.

YOU CAN LET THAT TRAGEDY

FUEL YOU TO DO SOMETHING

REALLY GOOD FOR A LOT OF

PEOPLE.

Terry: WELL, THERE IS

A MESSAGE THAT WILL PREACH

TO ALL OF US.

BECAUSE LIFE HAPPENS.

NOBODY GETS OUT OF IT.

NOBODY GETS OUT FROM YOU UNDER

THE SURPRISE OR THE

DISAPPOINTMENTS OR THE

PAIN AND SUFFERING THAT

COME AS JUST PARTS OF

LIFE.

BUT WE HAVE A GOOD, GOOD

FATHER WHO PROMISES THAT

WHAT THE ENEMY HAS MEANT

FOR EVIL, HE WILL WORK FOR

GOOD.

IT DOESN'T MEAN WE DON'T

FEEL THE PAIN AND THE HURT

AND THE LOSS.

IT MEANS THAT GOD PROMISES

TO TAKE ALL OF THAT AND DO

SOMETHING OF ETERNAL

SIGNIFICANCE WITH IT.

THE LOVE THIS COUPLE

BECAUSE THEY COULD HAVE

BEEN BITTER OR WALLOWED IN

THE LOSS OF THEIR CHILD,

BUT THEY DECIDED TO DO

SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

AND GOD SET BEFORE THEM

SOMETHING THEY NEVER WOULD

HAVE DREMPT OF THEMSELVES.

THEY JUST SAID, OKAY,

WE'RE GOING TO WALK

THROUGH WHATEVER DOOR YOU

OPEN, GOD.

I HOPE THAT'S AN

ENCOURAGEMENT FOR YOU

TODAY.

PUT IT UP ON THE ALTER AND

SAY, GOD, MAKES SOMETHING

THAT MATTERS OUT OF MY

LIFE, OUT OF MY

CIRCUMSTANCES, OUT OF MY

HURT AND MY PAIN.

AND YOUR FATHER, WHO LOVES

YOU AND SEES ALL, IS GOING

TO FULFILL THE PROMISE HE

HAS ALREADY GIVEN YOU.

YOU SEE, THAT'S WHO HE IS.

THAT'S WHO HE WANTS TO BE

IN EACH OF OUR LIVES.

AND SO WILL YOU SURRENDER

THE THINGS THAT YOU'RE

FEELING AND THE EMPTINESS

THAT YOU'RE EXPERIENCING

TO A GOD WHO CAN FILL IT

WITH MORE THAN YOU COULD

HAVE HOPED OR IMAGINED?

AND IN THIS SCENARIO, THE

HENANS WERE THEN ABLE TO

TURNED AROUND AND BE LIFE

LIFE-CHANGERS TO CHILDREN

WHO DIDN'T HAVE MOTHERS OR

FATHERS.

AND THEY TURNED AROUND AND

OFFERED HOME AND HELP AND

LOVE AND A FUTURE TO

CHILDREN WHO ARE WITHOUT A

FAMILY.

GOD IS GOOD.

HE IS BIGGER THAN ANYTHING

YOU ARE GOING THROUGH.

AND HE IS MORE THAN

WILLING, MORE THAN HAPPY,

AND DESIRES TO PUT HIS

HAND AND HIS POWER TO WORK

IN YOUR LIFE.

GIVE IT TO HIM NOW.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PRAY

WITH SOMEONE ABOUT

WHATEVER YOUR

EXPERIENCING, OUR NUMBER

IS TOLL-FREE:

1-800-700-7000.

GORDON?

Gordon: STILL TO

COME, A RESTAURANT OWNER

WHO WAS IN CHRONIC PAIN

FOR NEARLY FIVE YEARS.

I FELT LIKE EVERY DAY

THAT I WAS DYING, THAT I

WAS LITERALLY DYING.

I LITERALLY WOULD GET ON

THE COUCH AND JUST CRY

BECAUSE IT WAS JUST SO

PAINFUL.

Gordon: SEE HOW A

SUPERNATURAL HEALING GETS

HER OFF OF THE COUCH AND

BACK IN THE KITCHEN.

PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS NEXT,

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Gordon: CHARLOTTE

BACKSLEY WAS CONSTANTLY ON

HER FEET, HELPING HER

HUSBAND RUN THEIR FIVE

RESTAURANTS.

SUDDENLY ACUTE PAIN AND

FATIGUE LEFT HER FLAT ON

HER BACK.

SHE SAW SEVERAL DOCTORS,

BUT FOUND NOW RELIEF,

UNTIL SHE WAS MIRACULOUSLY

HEALED, RIGHT IN HER OWN

HOME.

Reporter: CHARLOTTE

NEVER IMAGINED THE DAY

WOULD COME THAT SHE WOULD

BE IN SO MUCH PAIN SHE

COULDN'T TAKE CARE OF HER

FAMILY OR HELP RUN THE

RESTAURANTS SHE AND HER

HUSBAND OWNED, BUT SHE

DID.

I STARTED HAVING PAIN

ON MY RIGHT SIDE IN 2010.

THE DOCTOR I WAS GOING TO

AT THAT TIME, SHE DID

EXTENSIVE X-RAYS AND BLOOD

WORK AND COULDN'T FIND

ANYTHING WRONG.

Reporter: OVER THE

NEXT FEW YEARS, THE PAIN

AND FATIGUE GOT WORSE.

EVENTUALLY, CHARLOTTE

DISCOVERED SHE HAD LYME

DISEASE AND INFLAMED

LIVER.

THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED

PAINKILLERS, BUT NOTHING

SEEMED TO HELP.

I FELT LIKE EVERY DAY I

WAS DYING.

YOU'RE ACHING AND TIRED.

YOU DON'T HAVE ANY ENERGY.

YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING

ANYTHING BUT JUST SITTING

OR LAYING.

I WOULD GET UP AND TRY TO

SWEEP, MOP, COOK,

WHATEVER -- THE NORMAL

THINGS I ALWAYS DID -- AND

I JUST COULDN'T DO IT.

I WOULD LEAVE THE HOUSE

EVERY MORNING, KNOWING

THAT THE PAIN THAT SHE WAS

IN, I WAS LOSING HOPE.

BUT SHE NEVER GAVE UP.

Reporter: THAT'S

BECAUSE THERE WERE SOME

THINGS THE PAIN COULDN'T

KEEP HER FROM DOING.

IT DIDN'T STOP ME FROM

PRAYING.

AND IT DIDN'T STOP ME FROM

READING MY BIBLE.

IN FACT, I PROBABLY DREW

CLOSER TO THE LORD THEN

THAN I EVER HAD.

I LEARNED WHEN JESUS IS

ALL YOU GOT, JESUS IS ALL

YOU NEED.

Reporter: BUT AFTER

NEARLY FIVE YEARS OF

CHRONIC PAIN, EVEN PRAYING

THE WAY HER MOTHER TAUGHT

HER, BECAME UNBEARABLE.

I WASN'T ABLE TO GET

DOWN ON MY KNEES BECAUSE

OF THE PAIN.

I LITERALLY WOULD GET ON

THE COUCH AND JUST CRY.

JUST LAY THERE AND CRY AND

CALL OUT TO GOD BECAUSE IT

WAS JUST SO PAINFUL AT

THAT TIME.

Reporter: CHARLOTTE

KNEW SHE NEEDED A MIRACLE.

SHE SAYS ITKI IT CAME ONE DAY

WHILE WATCHING ONE OF HER

FAVORITE SHOWS, "THE 700

CLUB."

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE WITH A LIVER

CONDITION, FAIRLY RECENT,

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT

FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

JUST PRAISE HIS NAME AND

RECEIVE IT.

I IMMEDIATELY RAISED MY

HANDS.

AND I SAID, GOD, THAT IS

FOR ME.

I KNOW THAT IT'S FOR ME.

AND I'M CLAIMING HEALING.

Reporter: SHE

CONTINUED PRAYING AND

BELIEVING GOD FOR HEALING.

WITHIN A FEW WEEKS, THE

PAIN WAS COMPLETELY GONE.

I GOT UP ONE MORNING,

AND I WASN'T HURTING.

AND I THOUGHT, WOW, I FEEL

REALLY GOOD.

I MEAN, THAT WAS THE FIRST

TIME I HAD NOT BEEN IN

PAIN IN FOUR AND A HALF

YEARS.

SO AFTER ABOUT A WEEK, I

KNEW.

I SAID, LORD, YOU HAVE

HEALED MY BODY.

AND I JUST CLAIMED IT

BECAUSE I KNEW I HAD

PRAYED THAT DAY, WITH

TERRY, AND GOD HAD HEARD

OUR PRAYERS AND HE

ANSWERED.

SHE LOOKED AT ME, AND

SHE SAID, GOD HAS HEALED

ME.

AND HE DID.

ONE DAY IT WAS JUST LIKE

THE WORLD JUST TURNED BACK

TO THE WAY IT'S SUPPOSED

TO BE.

Reporter: CHARLOTTE

HAS SINCE BEEN CURED OF

LYME DISEASE AND IS OFF

ALL MEDICATION.

SHE IS PAIN-FREE AND ABLE

TO ENJOY HER FAMILY AGAIN.

THE LORD GAVE ME LUKE

18: 1, DURING MY SICK

TIMES, AND IT IS TO ALWAYS

PRAY AND DON'T GIVE UP.

NO MATTER WHAT YOU'RE

GOING THROUGH, NO MATTER

WHAT HARDSHIP, STORM,

CIRCUMSTANCE, GOD WALKS

YOU THROUGH THAT STORM,

AND HE IS NEVER GOING TO

LEAVE US NOR FORSAKE US.

Gordon: HE WALKS WITH

US.

HE DOESN'T LEAVE US.

HE DIDN'T FORSAKE US.

HE IS ALWAYS THERE.

WE HAVE RECEIVED SOME

ANSWERS TO PRAYERS ON OUR

Facebook PAGE.

IDA WRITES IN, "I ASKED

YOU TO PRAY FOR ME.

I WAS 21 WEEKS PREGNANT

WITH FIBROIDS AND GOING

THROUGH EXCRUCIATING PAIN

DAY AND NIGHT, AND I'M NOW

DOING SO MUCH BETTER.

THANK YOU, GOD."

LAURIE SAYS, "I WAS

PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE.

MY SON WAS HAVING TROUBLE

COMING HOME TO THE

PHILIPPINES.

THE CONSULATE WAS

UNHELPFUL FOR OVER THREE

MONTHS.

I ASKED FOR PRAY ON MAY

24th, AND IN LESS THAN

THREE WEEKS, MY SON WAS

HOME SAFE AND SOUND.

THANKS FOR YOUR PRAYERS."

AND GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE GOD.

IT DOESN'T MATTER THE

CONDITION.

GOD IS BIGGER THAN ALL OF

IT.

HE CREATED THE UNIVERSE

WITH HIS WORD.

HE SPOKE AND THINGS CAME

INTO BEING.

HE HAS THAT KIND OF POWER.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE IN HIM AND BELIEVE

IN THE ONE THAT HE SENT.

BELIEVE IN JESUS.

AND THEN YOU GET ACCESS TO

THAT INCREDIBLE MIRACLE

POWER.

SO WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.

YOU JOIN WITH US, AND

LET'S SEE WHAT GOD HAS FOR

YOU TODAY.

PRAY WITH US.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU, AND

AS PEOPLE ARE PRAYING, WE

JUST JOIN WITH THEM.

AND WE JOIN WITH THEIR

PRAYER FOR THEIR FAMILY,

FOR THEIR FINANCES, AND

FOR PHYSICAL HEALING.

WE JOIN WITH ALL OF THEM.

AND WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD

STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND TO

DO MIRACLES, TO DO

WONDERS, TO MOVE IN THE

LIVES OF YOUR CHILDREN

TODAY, LORD GOD.

BE WITH US.

ENCOURAGE US.

STRENGTHEN US NOW.

FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE

BEEN SUFFERING WITH

CHRONIC MIGRAINES, AND

THERE HAS BEEN CRUSHING

PAIN.

GOD IS JUST HEALING AND

RESTORING THAT RIGHT NOW.

YOU JUST FELT IT LIFT OFF

OF YOU RIGHT NOW.

GOD IS ABLE TO HEAL.

HE WANTS TO ASSURE YOU

THEY'RE NEVER GOING TO

COME BACK.

JUST RECEIVE THAT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH

A NEUROBLASTOMA, AND I'M

NOT SURE EXACTLY WHAT THAT

IS, BUT GOD IS HEALING

THAT FOR YOU.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE

ASTONISHED AT WHAT HE

DOES.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

LIFE HAS BEEN GIVEN TO

YOU.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE HAD A CAR

ACCIDENT AND THERE IS

EXTRAORDINARY PAIN IN YOUR

NECK, ON THE RIGHT SIDE,

IN THE BACK, AT THE BASE

OF THE SKULL, AND IT GOES

DOWN INTO YOUR SHOULDER.

GOD IS HEALING THAT.

HE IS RESTORING EVERYTHING

CONCERNING IT.

THE VERTEBRA, THE DISCS

BETWEEN THE VERTEBRA.

HE IS ABLE TO PUT NERVES

BACK INTO PLACE.

HE IS DOING ALL OF THAT

FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE HEALED

AND BE MADE WHOLE.

Terry: THERE IS

ANOTHER PERSON WITH

SERIOUS CARTILAGE ISSUES

THROUGHOUT YOUR BODY, AND

GOD IS TOUCHING THAT RIGHT

NOW.

Gordon: LORD, WE

THANK YOU.

YOU ARE THE HEALER, YOU'RE

THE RESTORER.

THANK YOU IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE'RE

HERE FOR YOU.

JUST CALL US: 1-800-CELE.

HERE IS A WORD FROM

ISAIAH: "HE WAS WOUNDED

FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE

WAS BRUISED FOUR OUR AN

NICITIES.

THE CHASUPON HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.
