Efrem: THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

PRESIDENT TRUMP TOOK HIS

TAX REFORM CAMPAIGN

DIRECTLY TO SENATE

REPUBLICANS, BUT NOT

EVERYBODY GAVE HIM A WARM

WELCOME.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON HAS MORE

NOW FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: IT IS NOW

SECRET PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS

ENEMIES, EVEN IN HIS OWN

PARTY.

THAT CAME TO THE FOREFRONT

ON TUESDAY AS PRESIDENT

TRUMP SPOKE TO SENATE

REPUBLICANS ON CAPITOL

HILL.

BUT TALKS OF UNITY WERE

OFF TO A ROUGH START, WHEN

SENATOR CORKER MADE THESE

COMMENTS.

I EXPRESSED CONCERNS A

FEW WEEKS AGO BOW HIS

LEADERSHIP AND HIS JUST

HIS STABILITY.

AND THE LACK OF DESIRE TO

BE COMPETENT ON ISSUES AND

UNDERSTAND.

AND, YOU KNOW, NOTHING HAS

CHANGED.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP FIRED BACK ON

TWITTER, CALLING CORKER

INCOMPETENT AND SAYING HE

COULDN'T EVEN GET ELECTED

AS DOG CATCHER.

BUT THE BIGGEST NEWS CAME

WHEN ARIZONA SENATOR JEFF

FLAKE ANNOUNCED HE WILL

NOT SEEK RE-ELECTION IN

2018, CRITICIZING TODAY'S

POLITICAL STATE, SAYING

AMERICA HAS LOST ITS

MOORINGS.

IT IS ALSO CLEAR TO ME

FOR THE MOMENT, THAT WE

HAVE GIVEN IN OR GIVEN UP

ON THE CORE PRINCIPLES IN

FAVOR OF A MORE VISCERALLY

SATISFYING ANGER AND

RESENTMENT.

Reporter: MITCHELL

McCONNELL STEERED CLEAR

OF THE FEUDS, SAYING HE

WANTS TO CONCENTRATE ON

THEIR AGENDA AND NOT ANY

OTHER DISTRACTIONS.

WHAT I HAVE AN

OBLIGATION TO DO IS TO TRY

TO ACHIEVE THE GREAT

COHESION I CAN AMONG 52

REPUBLICANS TO TRY TO

ACHIEVE FOR THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE THE AGENDA WE SET

OUT TO ACHIEVE.

AND TAX REFORM IS WHAT WE

ARE ABOUT.

IF THERE IS ANYTHING THAT

UNIFIES REPUBLICANS, IT IS

TAX REFORM.

Reporter: THE TAX

PLAN SEEMS TO BE ON

SCHEDULE, WITH HOUSE

REPUBLICANS SAYING THEY'RE

EVEN WILLING TO PASS A

SENATE BUDGET RESOLUTION

MANY DON'T AGREE WITH IN

ORDER TO EXPEDITE TAX

REFORM.

I THINK THE SENATE

BUDGET IS AWFUL, AND I

WILL VOTE FOR IT BECAUSE

THE OUTCOME OF TAX REFORM

IS SO IMPORTANT.

I'VE BEEN FOR IT -- IT

IS NOT EVERYTHING WE WANT,

BUT YOU TAKE 70% OF WHAT

YOU CAN NOW AND COME BACK

FOR THE REST LATER.

Reporter:

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS ARE

TRYING TO HAVE A TAX PLAN

IN PLACE BY THE BEGINNING

OF NEXT YEAR, KNOWING IF

THEY DON'T, THEY COULD PAY

THE PRICE IN THE 2018

ELECTIONS.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: ABIGAIL, THANK

YOU.

> INVESTIGATIONS INTO

THE PRESIDENT TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION SEEM TO BE

IN THE HEADLINES ALMOST

DALE, BUT NOW DEMOCRATS

ARE IN THE MICROSCOPE,

INCLUDING HILLARY CLINTON,

AND THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

Reporter: HILLARY

CLINTON'S PRESIDENTIAL

CAMPAIGN IS ONCE AGAIN IN

THE SPOTLIGHT.

AFTER THE WASHINGTON

REPORT SAYS THAT THE

CAMPAIGN AND THE

DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEE

HELPED MAY FOR THE

RESEARCH INTO PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

THAT RESEARCH WAS CARRIED

OUT BY A GROUP CALLED

"FUSION G.P.S.," AND IN

THE DOSSIER WHICH

CONTAINED ALLEGATIONS

ABOUT TRUMP'S CONNECTIONS

BETWEEN RUSSIA AND

POSSIBLE COLLUSION BETWEEN

THE CLEM LIN AN KREMLIN AND THE TRUMP

CAMPAIGN.

TRUMP HAS REPEATEDLY SAID

THE DOCUMENT IS NOT TRUE,

AND HE RECENTLY QUESTIONED

ON TWITTER IF DEMOCRATS OR

THE F.B.I. ASSISTED IN

FUNDING IT.

THE PERSON FAMILIAR WITH

THE MATTER SAID AN

ATTORNEY FOR THE CLINTON

CAMPAIGN AND THE D.N.C.,

ALONG WITH HI LA WITH HIS LAW FIRM,

BROKERED THE DEAL.

AND HOUSE REPUBLICANS HAVE

STARTED TWO NEW

INVESTIGATIONS: ONE INTO

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION'S

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, AND

THE OTHER INVOLVING

HILLARY CLINTON'S USE OF A

PRIVATE E-MAIL SERVER

WHILE SHE WAS SECRETARY OF

STATE.

THEY WANT TO KNOW HOW

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

ADMINISTRATION WAS IN

CHARGE OF 20% OF THE

IRANIAN URANIUM.

WE WANT TO INQUIRE INTO

THE RUSSIAN INVOLVEMENT

INTO URANIUM.

WE HAVE A WITNESS WHO

WANTS TO TALK ABOUT HIS

ROLE IN THIS.

AND WE'RE IN CONTACT WITH

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT TO

RELEASE HIM FROM A

NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT.

IF THAT DOESN'T WORK OUT

IN A TIMELY FASHION, WE

OBVIOUSLY WOULD BE ABLE TO

SUBPOENA HIM.

Reporter: DEMOCRATS

SAY THE REPUBLICAN-LED

INVESTIGATIONS ARE

DESIGNED TO DISTRACT

ATTENTION FROM THE KIND OF

BROKERING THAT LED TO

RUSSIAN MEDDLING IN THE

ELECTION.

CLINTON SAID THE SAME

THING, AND CALLED THE NEW

ATTENTION ON THE URANIUM

DEAL BOLOGNA.

THE REPUBLICANS SAY THEY

WANT TO KNOW HOW THE DEAL

WORKED AND BY 20% OF THE

UNITED STATES URANIUM WAS

GIVEN TO A RUSSIAN-OWNED

COMPANY.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE DEPARTMENT

OF HEALTH AND HUMAN

SERVICES IS WORKING TO

REMOVE BARRIERS FOR THE

FAITH COMMUNITY.

IT IS SPECIFICALLY LOOKING

INTO INPUT ON THINGS LIKE

FUNDING RESTRICTIONS.

THIS COMES ONLY A FEW

MONTHS AFTER PRESIDENT

TRUMP SIGNED AN EXECUTIVE

ORDER TO PROMOTE FREE

SPEECH AND RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY.

> THE SENATE PASSED A

$36.5 BILLION DISASTER AID

BILL ON TUESDAY, ALL IN AN

EFFORT TO SEND MUCH-NEEDED

FUNDING TO PUERTO RICO.

AND HE PROVIDES MONEY TO

BAIL OUT THE FEDERAL FLOOD

INSURANCE PROGRAM,

BRINGING THE TOTAL AMOUNT

APPROVED BY CONGRESS TO

MORE THAN $50 BILLION.

THE WHITE HOUSE COMMENTING

THAT IT WILL PROVIDE

CRITICAL RELIEF FROM THE

RECENT NATURAL DISASTERS.

> STILL AHEAD ON CBN

"NEWSWATCH," A FORMER

GANG-BANGER WHO ROSE FROM

DRINKING AND USING DRUGS

TO BECOME THE GREATEST

SOCCER PLAYER IN HUNGARY.

SEE THE SOCCER STAR'S

AMAZING TRANSFORMATION

COMING UP.

Efrem: WELCOME BACK.

THE LOS ANGELES DODGERS

HAVE TAKEN GAME ONE OF THE

WORLD SERIES WITH A WIN

OVER THE HOUSTON ASTROS.

CURT HELPED TO BRING THE

DODGERS A 3 TO 1 VICTORY

BY STRIKING OUT 11

BATTERS.

HE HOPES TO ADD A WORLD

SERIES TITLE AS WELL.

THE DODGERS WILL FACE THE

ASTROS TONIGHT FOR GAME

TWO.

HISTORICALLY, THE WINNER

OF GAME ONE HAS A 64%

CHANCE OF WINNING THE BEST

OF SEVEN SERIES.

> IT IS NEVER TOO LATE

FOR GOD.

HE CAN TURN A WASTED LIFE

INTO A TRIUMPH OF HIS

GRACE, AND TAKE THAT SAME

PERSON TO THE PINNACLE OF

THE SPORTS WORLD.

DALE HURD HAS THE REPORT

OF A SOCCER STAR'S AMAZING

TRANSFORMATION.

Reporter: THIS IS THE

STORY OF A WASTED YOUTH,

SUDDENLY TRANSFORMED BY

THE POWER OF GOD.

BWHO GOD BROUGHT TO NEW

LIFE IN CHRIST AND TO

ATHLETIC GREATNESS.

THERE IS A SAYING THAT

YOUTH IS WASTED ON THE

YOUNG.

THAT WAS HULLTON GERA, HE

WASTED HIS YOUTH ON GANGS

AND DRUGS.

THEN HE WAS RADICALLY

SAVED AND HE BECAME THE

GREATEST SOCCER PLAYING IN

HUNGARY.

EVEN THOUGH HE WAS A

GIFTED FOOTBALLER AS A

YOUNG PERSON, HE WAS FAR

TOO DISTRACTED BY TROUBLE

TO MAKE A CAREER IN

PROFESSIONAL SPORTS.

I WAS 15, AND I WATCHED

THE GAMES, AND I SAID TO

MYSELF, LISTEN, YOU HAVE

BETTER QUALITY AND TALENT

THAN THESE PLAYERS.

BUT IED SAID I SAID, ALSO, FOR YOU

IT IS LATE.

YOU WILL NEVER BE A

FOOTBALL GREAT BECAUSE YOU

WASTED YOUR TALENT.

Reporter: HE HAD LOST

HIS FULL LUNG CAPACITY

FROM SNIFFING GLUE.

AS HE SPIRALLED DEEPER

INTO TROUBLE, HIS FATHER

DECIDED THAT THIS WAS A

LIFE THAT ONLY GOD COULD

SAVE.

YEAH, MY DAD, HE SAID,

LISTEN, I CANNOT HELP YOU.

I TAKE YOU TO THE CHURCH.

LET'S SEE IF GOD CAN HELP

YOU OR NOT.

Reporter: SO HE DAD

TOOK HIM TO CHURCH.

HE HAD NEVER SEEN

EVANGELICAL WORSHIP BEFORE

AND THOUGHT IT WAS

FASCINATING TO SEE PEOPLE

SO EXCITED ABOUT GOD.

BUT WHEN HE DAD ASKED HIM

IF HE WANTED TO GO FORWARD

AND BE SAVED, HE SAID NO.

SO HE DAD TOOK HIM TO

CHURCH AGAIN AND ASKED HIM

AGAIN, DID HE WANT TO GIVE

HIS LIFE TO GOD.

AND I SAID, NO, NO, BUT

MY DAD, HE PULLED ME AND

TAKE ME IN FRONT OF THE

CHURCH.

AND, YEAH, I PRAYED WITH

OTHERS.

AND FROM THAT POINT, I WAS

A NEW MAN.

Reporter: HE QUIT THE

GANGS, DRINKING, AND DRUGS

IMMEDIATELY, AND FOUND HE

HAD A LOT OF TIME TO

PRACTICE SOCCER.

BUT HIS BODY WAS STILL

DAMAGED FROM DRUGS.

THEY SAID, YOU'LL NEVER

BE A PROFESSIONAL

FOOTBALLER.

SO I PRAYED ALSO, GOD,

WHEN HE SAVED ME, PLEASE,

GOD, HELP ME TO GET BACK

INTO THE FOOTBALL.

IF YOU'LL LIFT ME UP, I

WILL PRAISE YOUR NAME WITH

MY FOOTBALL.

Reporter: GOD

ANSWERED HIS PRAYER AND

SOON, WHILE STILL A

TEENAGER, HE BEGAN HIS

PROFESSIONAL CAREER.

AS AN ATTACKING

MID-FIELDER, GAREN HAS

BEEN NAMED HUNGARIAN

PLAYER OF THE YEAR THREE

TIMES.

HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE TWO

CHILDREN, AND THEY MET AT

CHURCH, BUT SHE KNEW ABOUT

HIS TROUBLED BACKGROUND

AND DIDN'T TRUST HIM AT

FIRST.

I KNEW HIM AS A

FOOTBALL PLAYER, BUT NOT

PERSONALLY.

I KNEW BEFORE HE WAS BORN

AGAIN, HE WAS A VERY BAD

GUY, VERY AGGRESSIVE.

SO I WE STARTED TO MEET.

AND WE I JUST REALIZED

THAT HE REALLY CHANGED AND

GOD SAVED HIS LIFE.

AND HE IS A REALLY NICE

PERSON.

Reporter: ZULTON AND

TIMI HAVE BEEN MARRIED NOW

FOR 13 YEARS, AND TOLD ME

THEY'RE REGULAR VIEWERS OF

"700 CLUB" IN HUNGARY.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: BOTH HAVE

BOUGHT A CHRISTIAN WITNESS

FORTH TO A WORLD THAT

DESPERATELY NEEDS IT, BUT

PERHAPS MORE THAN

ANYTHING, HE IS AN EXAMPLE

FOR ALL OF US, THAT IT

DOESN'T MATTER HOW

HOPELESS WE ARE OTHERS

THINK OUR LIVES HAVE

BECOME, GOD WILL HAVE THE

FINAL SAY.

AND FOR GOD, THERE IS

NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE.

HE CAN CHANGE YOU WHEN

YOU'RE 60 OR 70 -- 50 --

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

MY LIFE IS AN EXAMPLE IT'S

NEVER TOO LATE.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS, BUDAPEST.

Efrem: GENETIC

THERAPY, MEDICAL MIRACLE

OR DOCTORS TRYING TO PLAY

GOD?

WE'RE BREAKING DOWN THE

GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE

UGLY WHEN IT COMES TO

GENETIC THERAPY.

THAT STORY IS NEXT, HERE

ON CBN "NEWSWATCH."

Efrem: BREAST CANCER

AFFECTS ONE IN EIGHT WOMEN

IN THEIR LIFETIME, BUT THE

FINDINGS OF A NEW STUDY

COULD UNLOCK MORE WAYS FOR

DOCTORS TO DETECT IT

EARLY.

THROUGH GENETIC TESTING,

RESEARCHERS HAVE FOUND

THERE ARE 65 DISTINCT

GENETIC MUTATIONS LINKED

TO THE DISEASE.

EACH CONTRIBUTE ONLY

MINIMALLY TO BREAST

CANCER'S RISK, BUT SEVERAL

TOGETHER COULD INCREASE

RISK MORE SIGNIFICANTLY.

RESEARCHERS HOPE TO CREATE

NEW BREAST CANCER

TREATMENTS IN THE FUTURE.

> SCIENTISTS FROM AROUND

THE WORLD ARE DEBATING THE

ETHICS OF A NEW TECHNIQUE

THAT CHANGES A PERSON AT

THE MOST FUNDAMENTAL

LEVEL.

THEY CAME TOGETHER A FEW

MONTHS AGO IN WASHINGTON,

D.C. TO DISCUSS THIS BRAVE

NEW WORLD.

AS LORIE JOHNSON SHOWS US,

WORRY NEW ENTERING THE

UNCHARTED TERRITORY OF

CHANGING A PERSON'S

GENETIC CODE.

Lorie: WE HEAR IT

EVERY DAY, IT'S GENETIC.

PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH

BEAUTY, INTELLIGENCE,

ATHLETIC PROWESS, AND ALSO

THE POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE

DISEASES, LIKE CANCER,

ALZHEIMER'S, AND MUSCULAR

DYSTROPHY.

BUT WHAT IF THEIR GENETIC

CODE COULD BE CHANGED AND

PASSED DOWN TO FUTURE

GENERATIONS.

SCIENTISTS SAY THAT EXACT

TECHNOLOGY NOW EXISTS.

IT WAS THE SUBJECT OF A

SUMMIT IN WASHINGTON,

D.C., DRAWING SCIENTISTS

FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT

TO BE CLEAR ABOUT WHAT ARE

THE POSITIVE POTENTIAL

OUTCOMES, AND WHERE IS

THERE RISK OF GOING DOWN A

PATHWAY THAT WE WILL AT

SOME POINT PERHAPS REGRET.

Lorie: SIMILAR TO CUT

AND PASTE COMPUTER

SOFTWARE, THE MOST

RECENTLY DEVELOPED METHOD

ALLOWS SCIENTISTS TO

PRECISELY TARGET ABNORMAL

GENES INSIDE CELLS,

REPLACING THEM WITH

HEALTHY ONES.

IT CAN BE USED IN

REPRODUCTIVE CELLS, SPERM,

EGG, AND EMBRYOS, AND

THOSE CHANGES CAN BE

PASSED ON TO CHILDREN.

AND IN ADDITION TO CURING

DISEASES, THEY CAN ALSO BE

USED TO CREATE SO-CALLED

DESIGNER BABIES.

EDITING OR CHANGES THAT

MIGHT ENHANCE FUTURE

GENERATIONS -- IN THOSE

AREAS, IT IS DIFFICULT TO

PREVENT THOSE EXPERIMENTS

FROM HAPPENING.

BUT WHAT YOU COULD DO AS A

COMMUNITY IS SET CLEAR

GUIDELINES ABOUT WHAT

WOULD BE AN ACCEPTABLE

EXPERIMENT AND WHAT WOULD

YOU UNACCEPTABLE.

AND HAVING SOME FORM OF

REGULATION OR PUNISHMENT.

PEOPLE START TALKING

ABOUT EYE COLOR OR HAIR

COLOR OR MEMORY

ENHANCEMENT OR MUSCLE

MASS, AND THINGS LIKE

THAT.

AND I THINK WE REALLY NEED

TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT THAT.

BECAUSE SOME OF THAT

INVOLVES VERY, VERY

COMPLICATED SCIENCE, IN

TERMS OF THE NUMBER OF

GENES YOU WOULD HAVE TO

MANIPULATE, ETC.

AND AT LEAST FOR NOW, THAT

IS NOT THE GAME.

WE'RE LOOKING TO TRY TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE

LIVES OF PEOPLE WHO

ACTUALLY HAVE GENETIC

DISEASES.

Lorie: THE LATEST

GENE EDITING TECHNOLOGY

HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE

DONE TO ON A WIDE SCALE

BECAUSE NOW IT CAN BE DONE

IN MOST MODERN

LABORATORIES AT A LOW

COST.

THE SCIENTISTS ARE HOPING

THAT THE WORLD WOULD AGREE

ON UNIFORM LEGAL AND

ETHICAL GUIDELINES ON THIS

NEW TECHNOLOGY, WHICH HAS

THE POTENTIAL TO REDUCE

HUMAN SUFFERING, BUT COULD

ALSO CARRY WITH IT

UNINTENDED AND

UNFORESEEABLE

CONSEQUENCES.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: IT'S A BRAVE

NEW WORLD.

STAY WITH US; THERE IS

MUCH MORE OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH" COMING UP.

Efrem: AS MANY

CHURCHES ARE DYING OUT

WITH ELDERLY PARISHIONERS

PASSING AWAY, MARK'S

COMMUNITY CHURCH HAS MANY

MEMBERS, MOST OF THEM VERY

YOUNG.

THEY GIVE A HAND-UP TO

SOME OF WASHINGTON, D.C.'S

IM POIMPOVERISHED PEOPLE.

HE AND HIS CONGREGATION

HAVE LEARNED TO LISTEN TO

GOD AND FOLLOW HIS

PROMPTINGS.

Reporter: PASTOR MARK

BATTERSON'S CHURCH IS ONE

OF THE LARGEST IN THE

AREA, AND HE IS ASKED TO

SPEAK ALL OVER THE WORLD

ALL OF THE TIME.

BUT HE SAYS IT IS MORE

ABOUT WHAT HE HEARS.

AND THAT'S THE THEME OF

HIS NEW BOOK, "WHISPER,"

WHICH IS ALL ABOUT HEARING

AND LISTENING TO GOD AND

THEN DOING WHAT HE SAYS.

ONE OF MY FEARS AS A

PASTOR IS THAT PEOPLE WILL

RELATE TO GOD THROUGH ME.

NO.

GOD WANTS TO SPEAK TO YOU,

AND HE DOES IT THROUGH

DESIRES, DREAMS, AND THEN,

OF COURSE, THROUGH THE

FIRST LANGUAGE, SCRIPTURE

ITSELF.

I HAVE NO DOUBT GOD IS

SPEAKING.

BUT THE QUESTION IS: ARE

WE LISTENING, AND IS HE

THE LOUDEST VOICE IN OUR

LIFE.

Reporter: HE IS

ALWAYS TRYING TO LISTEN TO

THE PROMPTINGS OF GOD AND

DOING WHAT THEY SAY, NO

MATTER HOW CHALLENGING

THEY.

WHICH OFTEN GETS HIM INTO

SOME INTERESTING

CIRCUMSTANCES, LIKE WHEN

HE WAS RECENTLY ADDRESSING

A GATHERING OF SENATORS

AND BUSINESSMEN.

AS I WAS SPEAKING, I

HAD THIS PROMPTING TO HAVE

A KNEEL.

I DIDN'T KNOW IF THAT WAS

PROTOCOL.

YOU'RE TALKING TO A GROUP

OF SENATORS AND CONGRESS

FOLKS, BUT I FELT LIKE

YOU'VE GOT TO OBEY THOSE

PROMPTINGS.

AND WHEN YOU DO, IT IS

ALMOST LIKE GOING DOWN THE

RABBIT HOLE.

THEN YOU DISCOVER KIND OF

WHAT GOD CAN DO.

AND IT TURNED INTO A HOLY

MOMENT.

IT WENT OFF-SCRIPT A

LITTLE BIT, BUT I THINK

THOSE ARE THE GREATEST

MOMENTS IN LIFE.

THE THINGS YOU CAN'T

REALLY PLAN FOR, BUT IF

YOU'RE OBEDIENT TO THE

PROMPTING OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT, IT CAN TURN INTO

SOMETHING SPECIAL.

Reporter: WHAT

HAPPENED?

WE HIT OUR KNEES.

THERE WAS A GREAT RESPONSE

TO IT.

JUST A REALTIME OF

INTERCESSION THROUGH THIS

NATION.

IT IS NOW SECRET THAT WE

HAVE OUR FAIR SHARE OF

POLITICAL TENSIONS RIGHT

NOW.

AND, LISTEN, HERE IS THE

THING: I DON'T THINK THAT

HITTING OUR KNEES SOLVES

EVERYTHING BECAUSE YOU'VE

GOT TO DRAFT LEGISLATION,

YOU'VE GOT TO, YOU KNOW,

DO POLICY AND ALL THOSE

KIND OF WONDERFUL THINGS,

BUT IT IS NOT A BAD PLACE

TO START, ON OUR KNEES IN

THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

Reporter: THE PASTOR

HAS FOUND THAT SOMETIMES

YOU'LL HEAR SOMETHING FROM

GOD, BUT WHAT THE LORD HAS

SAID WOULD HAPPEN, WON'T

HAPPEN FOR DECADES.

IN THE CASE OF PASTOR

MARK'S ASTHMA, WHICH HE

SUFFERED FROM HIS ENTIRE

LIFE.

FOR ME, THE GREATEST

PRAYER WOULD BE THAT GOD

WOULD HEAL MY ASTHMA.

I HAD AN ASTHMA ATTACK

WHEN I WAS THREE YEARS OLD

AND WENT TO THE HOSPITAL.

I'VE BEEN HOSPITALIZED

MONTHS, IF YOU ADD IT UP.

I'VE BEEN CODE BLUE.

BUT I BELIEVE THAT I'VE

GOT TO KEEP PRAYING, KEEP

ASKING, AND LONG STORY

SHORT, THAT WAS 477 DAYS

AGO.

I HAVE NOT TOUCHED AN

INHALER.

THE LORD HEALED MY ASTHMA.

SO TO CELEBRATE IT AND TO

VALIDATE IT, I THOUGHT,

I'M GOING TO RUN A

MARATHON.

SO OCTOBER 8th, I RAN

THE CHICAGO MARATHON.

DIDN'T WIN IT, BUT I

FINISHED IT.

Reporter: MARK

BATTERSON, PASTOR AND

AUTHOR OF THE BRAND NEW

BOOK, "WHISPER," ABOUT

HEARING AND LISTENING TO

THE WORD OF GOD.

PAUL STRAND REPORTING.

Efrem: IT IS TIME NOW

FOR YOUR WEDNESDAY WORD,

AND TODAY'S WORD IS

"MIRACLE."

MIRACLES STILL HAPPEN.

GOD'S WORDS ARE STILL THE

SAME TODAY AS THEY ALWAYS

WERE AND WILL BE.

YOU JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE.

MIRACLES STILL HAPPEN.

IF YOU EVER QUESTION THAT

FACT, TAKE A LOOK IN THE

MIRROR, A LONG ONE.

YOU ARE A LIVING AND

BREATHING MIRACLE OF GOD,

FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY

MADE.

WITH THAT WORD, BE SURE TO

MAKE THIS A WONDERFUL AND

JOYOUS WEDNESDAY.
