WOUND UP

LOVING AIRPLANES.

IT WAS ALMOST AS IF I WAS

BORN TO FLY, REALLY.

Gordon: FIND OUT HOW

ONE MAN BECAME A LEGENDARY

MEMBER OF THE TUSKEGEE AIR

MEN.

PIEWRKS PLUS, U.S. SENATE

CHAPLAIN BARRY BLACK JOINS

US TODAY IN STUDIO.

> WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

DURING WORLD WAR II, THE

TUSKEGEE AIRMEN WERE OR

LEFT PILOTS.

HAROLD BROWN WAS A MEMBER

OF THIS ELITE SQUADRON.

BETWEEN 1944 AND 1945 HE

THROUGH 30 MISSIONS UNTIL

HIS PLANE WENT DOWN DEEP

WITHIN ENEMY LINES.

MY ENGINE WAS DAMAGED.

MY OIL PRESSURE WENT TO

ZERO.

TEMPERATURES WERE THE

MAXIMUM.

ALL OF THE COOLANT CAME

OUT RIGHT ACROSS MY

WINDSHIELD.

SO I KNEW THERE WAS ONLY

ONE CHOICE.

I WAS 11 YEARS OLD, AND

AS I DESCRIBE IT, I HAD A

LOVE AFFAIR WITH AN

AIRPLANE.

WHAT CAUSED IT, I HAVE NO

IDEA.

ONE DAY I JUST WOUND UP

LOVING AIRPLANES.

IT WAS ALMOST AS IF I WAS

BORN TO FLY, REALLY.

Reporter: HAROLD

BROWN HAD ONE DREAM: TO

BE A MILITARY PILOT.

BUT FOR AN

AFRICAN-AMERICAN BOY IN

1936, THAT WAS OUT OF THE

QUESTION.

SINCE WORLD WAR I, BLACK

MEN HAD BEEN PROHIBITED

FROM ENLISTING AND

TRAINING AS PILOTS.

BUT HAROLD WAS RAISED IN A

FAMILY WHO TAUGHT HIM THAT

EVERY DREAM WAS WORTH

CHASING.

I ALWAYS HAD THE BELIEF

THAT EVERYTHING WOULD

CHANGE.

AND THAT'S W WHAT I SAID E,, BY

THE TIME I'M READY,

EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE.

AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT

HAPPENED.

Reporter: IN 1938,

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT HAD

FAILED THE TRAINING

PROGRAM, AND FOR THE FIRST

TIME A SELECT NUMBER OF

AFRICAN-AMERICAN WERE

GIVEN A CHANCE TO FLY.

SEPTEMBER 1st, 1939,

GERMANY ATTACKS POLAND.

HITLER'S ALL-OUT ATTACK

ON POLAND MAKES THE

EUROPEAN WAR A CERTAINTY.

Reporter: FOR TWO AND

A HALF YEARS, HAROLD AND

THE REST OF AMERICA

CARRIED ON AS USUAL.

THEN UNDER EXECUTIVE

ORDER, THE U.S. ARMY AIR

CORPS ACTIVATED THE FIRST

SQUADRON OF ALL BLACK

PILOTS.

THIS BECAME THE TUSKEGEE

AIRMEN.

THE BIG NEWS WAS THAT I

COULD APPLY AND I COULD

TAKE MY SHOT AT IT.

AND AT LEAST I WOULD GET A

CHANCE.

Reporter: THAT SAME

SUMMER A 16-YEAR-OLD

HAROLD TOOK A JOBS AS A

SODA JERK, WITH JUST ONE

THING IN MIND.

I SAVED UP $35, AND I

TOOK THOSE $35 AND BOUGHT

ME FIVE THRIVING LESSONS.

AND ON THE FIRST FLIGHT, I

WAS SLOPPY, ALL OVER THE

SKY.

BUT BY THE FIFTH LESSON, I

WAIWAS FEELING QUITE

COMFORTABLE.

AND I SAID, OH, MAN, THIS

IS REALLY GREAT, I'M

FLYING AN AIRPLANE.

Reporter: THEN THE

WAR CAME TO AMERICA.

[LOUD NOISES]

NO MATTER HOW LONG IT

MAY TAKE US TO OVERCOME

THIS PREMEDITATED

INVASION, THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE IN THEIR RIGHTEOUS

MIGHT WILL WIN, TO

ABSOLUTE VICTORY.

Reporter: AMERICA

DECLARED WAR IN JAPAN, AND

TOWARDS THE ALLIED POWERS

IN EUROPE.

AND WHEN HAROLD GRADUATED

FROM HIGH SCHOOL IN

JUNE 1942, HE TOOK THE

TUSKEGEE FLIGHT SCHOOL

ENTRANCE EXAM AND PASSED.

I WAS SELECTED.

I'M IN.

THAT WAS MY DREAM.

CRASH?

NO, I'M NOT GOING TO

CRASH.

NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO ME.

Reporter: HAROLD

EARNED HIS WINGS AND THE

RANK OF SECOND LIEUTENANT

IN 1944, AND HE WAS

SHIPPED TO ITALY, WHERE HE

JOINED THE OTHER TUSKEGEE

AIRMEN, A SEGREGATED

ALL-BLACK UNIT KNOWN ONLY

BY THE RED RUTTER ON THEIR

P-51 MUSTANGS.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY

KNEW THAT A NEW FIGHTER

CREW HAD COME IN, AND THEY

HAD A RED TAIL.

AND THEY SAID, WHO ARE

THESE RED-TAILED GUYS?

Reporter: BUT IT WAS

THEIR PERFORMANCE IN THE

AIR THAT STOOD OUT THE

MOST.

WE HAD THE BEST RECORD

IN TERMS OF LOSING BOMBERS

TO ENEMY AIRCRAFT, OF ANY

OF THE FIGHTER GROUPS IN

THE 15 GROUP.

ALL OF A SUDDEN, THEY

SAID, THESE ARE THE GREAT

GUYS IN THE WORLD, NOT

KNOWING WHO WAS FLYING

THOSE AIRPLANES.

THEY STARTED CALLING US

THE RED-TAIL ANGES.

ANGELS.

AND THEN THEY STARTED

REQUESTING US.

THEY WANTED THE RED TAILS.

Reporter: ON MARCH

14th, 1 1945, HAROLD AND

19 OTHER RED TAILS TOOK

OFF TO AUSTRIA ON A

MISSION.

IF YOU SEE SOMETHING,

SHOOT IT UP.

AND WE LOOKED AND WE SAID,

LOOK WHAT WE'VE GOT.

LOCOMOTIVES ALL UP AND

DOWN, AND WE HAD ONE HECK

OF A DAY.

Reporter: IT WAS

HAROLD'S 30th AND LAST

MISSION OF THE WAR.

THAT DAY, AS HE TARGETED

ONE REMAINING FRAME, HE

FLEW A LITTLE TOO CLOSE.

I GOT THAT CLOSE.

AND JUST AS I PULLED UP TO

PASS OVER THE LOCOMOTIVE,

THAT'S WHEN IT BLOWS.

I WAS CAUGHT UP IN THE

EXPLOSION, SO I PULLED THE

AIRCRAFT OVER, AND I JET

JETTIJETTISONED THE CANOPY.

THEN THEY HEADED FOR HOME.

I LANDED IN THAT SNOW.

I HAD NEVER BEEN SO LONELY

IN MY LIFE.

20 YEARS OLD, UP IN

GERMANY, LOOKING LIKE

THIS.

AND I SAID, WHAT HAS

HAPPENED TO ME.

Reporter: MOMENTS

LATER, HAROLD SURRENDERED

TO TWO CIVILIAN POLICEMEN,

WHO ESCORTED HIM TO THE

VERY TOWN THEY JUST

ATTACKED.

I HAD A MOB IN FRONT OF

ME, AND THEIR UPSET AND

ANGRY.

INVINCIBILITY, IT DOESN'T

EXIST.

THEY HAD ONE THING ON

THEIR MIND, AND THEY WERE

GOING TO KILL ME.

THAT'S WHEN ONE CONSTABLE

STEPPED IN FRONT OF ME AND

KEPT THEM FROM KILLING ME.

AND I THOUGHT IT WAS

NOTHING LESS THAN A

MIRACLE.

Reporter: THE

CONSTABLE PULLED HAROLD

INTO A PUB AND BARRICADED

THE DOORS.

THE NEXT DAY HE WAS PUT ON

A P.O.W. TRAIN TO

NURENBURG.

NOT LONG INTO THE RIDE, HE

HEARD A FAMILIAR SOUND,

THE ROARING ENGINES OF THE

P-51s.

AND THEN, WE REALIZED,

MY GOD, THEY'RE GOING TO

HIT THE TRAIN.

YOU'RE HOLLERING AND

SCREAMING, AND THERE IS NO

PLACE TO RUN.

YOU CAN HEAR THE ENGINE

SPEEDING UP YOU, THE GUYS

TRYING TO GET TO A TUNNEL.

AND I'M SAYING, KEEP IT

GOING, GRET T GET TO THAT TUNNEL.

Reporter: THE TRAIN

REACHED THE TUNNEL SAFELY

AND TRAVELLED ON TO

NURENBURG.

BUT THE CITY WAS SOON

EVACUATED, AND HAROLD WAS

SENT TO A STAHLOG IN NUES

NUESBERG.

HE COMES IN, AND AS YOU

CAN IMAGINE, THIS MOB OF

PEOPLE HOLLERING AND

SCREAMING, "YAY, PATTON!

GO GET 'EM, PATTON."

AND YOU REALIZED WHAT I

JUST CAME THROUGH.

SOMEBODY HAS TO BE LOOKING

OUT FOR ME, AND THERE IS

ONLY SOMEBODY IN THE WORLD

WHO I KNOW IS CAPABLE OF

DOING THAT: GOD.

YONG HOW IT COULD HAPPEN.

Reporter: GERMANY

SURRENDERED ON MAY 5th,

1945.

AND FOUR MONTHS LATER,

JAPAN FOLLOWED.

HAROLD AND HIS FELLOW RED

TAILS RETURNED HOME HEROS,

HAVING HELPED BRING AN END

TO O TH THE WAR AND RACIAL

PREJUDICE IN THE MILITARY.

THEIR FINAL VICTORY CAME

IN 1948, WHEN PRESIDENT

TRUMAN OFFICIALLY ENDED

SEGREGATION WITHIN THE

ARMED FORCES.

IT WAS NEVER EASY FOR

THESE MEN.

THEY WERE PIONEERS, AND NO

PIONEER HAS IT EASY.

THEY FOUGHT LIES, THEY

FOUGHT HEARTBREAK, AND

THEY WON.

AFTER FLYING 23 YEARS

IN THE AIR FORCE, HAROLD

RETIRED AS COLONEL.

HE HAS SINCE EARNED A

DOCTORATE, SERVED AS AN

ADMINISTRATOR AT COLUMBIA

STATE COLLEGE, AND

CO-AUTHORED HIS BIOGRAPHY

WITH HIS WIFE, MARTHA.

THESE DAYS HE TRAVELS ALL

OVER SHARING THE LESSONS

OF THE TUSKEGEE AIRMEN,

AND HOW HARD WORK CAN

CHANGE EVERYTHING.

WITH HARD WORK, HAVING

CONFIDENCE YOU CAN WIN,

OVERCOMING OBSTACLES, AND

YOU CAN BE SUCCESSFUL.

YOU CAN OVERCOME ANYTHING.

DREAM, AND AIM AS HIGH AS

YOU WANT IN YOUR DREAM, AS

IN, GO AFTER IT.

WHEN THINGS ARE TOUGH,

JUST THINK OF THE TUSKEGEE

AIRMEN.

IF WE CAN DO IT, YOU CAN

DO IT.

Gordon: IF THERE IS

EVER A LESSON FOR TODAY,

DREAM BIG, GO FOR IT.

IF THINGS ARE TOUGH, JUST

GET TOUGHER.

> UP NEXT, THE 2017

NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST

SPEECH DREW A STANDING

OVATION FROM THE

PRESIDENT.

CHAPLAIN BARRY BLACK JOINS

US TO DISCUSS HOW TO HAVE

YOUR VOICE HEARD IN A

PLACE HIGHER THAN THE

WHITE HOUSE.

Gordon: HIS OFFICE

WINDOW COMES WITH A VIEW

OF THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT

AND LINCOLN MEMORIAL.

FOR SENATE CHAPLAIN BARRY

BLACK, SOME OF THE

NATION'S MOST INFLUENTIAL

PEOPLE ARE WITHIN SHOUTING

DIFFERENCE.

HOHOWEVER, HIS DESIRE IS TO

HAVE HIS VOICE HEARD IN

HEAVEN.

Reporter: HE IS THE

SPIRITUAL LEADER FOR SOME

OF THE MOST POWERFUL

PEOPLE IN THE UNITED

STATES.

SENATE CHAPLAIN BARRY

BLACK IS NOT ONLY THE

CHAPLAIN FOR 100

MINISTERS, HE ALSO

MINISTERS TO CAPITOL HILL

EMPLOYEES AND THEIR

FAMOUS, ABOUT 7,000 PEOPLE

IN TOTAL.

HIS RECENT ADDRESS AT THE

NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST

DREW PRAISE FROM THE

DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICANS,

AND THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF.

FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN

LETTING OUR VOICES BE

HEARD ON EARTH IS THE

OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE OUR

VOICES HEARD IN HEAVEN.

Reporter: IN THIS NEW

BOOK, "MAKE YOUR VOICE

HARD IN HEAVEN," CHAPLAIN

BARRY BLACK CHALLENGES US

AT A TIME WHEN PEOPLE ARE

INCREASING CALLING ON

THOSE IN POWER, TO CALL ON

THE ONE WHO HAS THE

ULTIMATE POWER, THE RULER

OF ALL CREATION.

Gordon: WELL, HE

JOINS US NOW.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

BACK.

I'M DELIGHTED TO BE

WITH YOU, GORDON.

Gordon: I WANT TO

START WITH REALLY A SAD

NOTE, WHAT HAPPENED IN

FLORIDA, YET ANOTHER

TRAGIC SCHOOL SHOOTING.

I THINK IT IS UNFORTUNATE

IN OUR NATION WE'RE

ACTUALLY GETTING NUMB TO

IT.

AS SHOCKING AS THAT WAS,

WE HAVE A RANKING OF

SCHOOL SHOOTINGS BASED ON

THE NUMBER OF DEATHS.

BUT ONE OF THE THINGS

COMING OUT OF THIS ONE IS

PEOPLE ARE SAYING, I'M

TIRED OF HEARING LET'S

PRAY.

WHEN ARE WE GOING TO DO

SOMETHING ABOUT THAT?

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO

THEM?

I THINK IT IS A VALID

OBSERVATION.

JAMES SAID, YOU CAN'T JUST

SAY TO SOMEONE WHO IS

HUNGRY, BE FILLED.

YOU CAN'T JUST SAY TO

SOMEONE WHO IS COLD, BE

WARM.

THAT THERE IS WORK TO DO.

AND I THINK THAT MANY

TIMES AS BELIEVERS, WE

PERMIT PLATITUDES RATHER

THAN ACTUAL LABOR.

PRAISE WITHOUT WORKS IS

DEAD.

ACTUAL LABOR TO BACK UP OR

RHETORIC.

SOMEONE SAID PRAY, AS IF

WORK HAD NOTHING TO DO

WITH IT, BUT THEN WORK AS

IF PRAYER HAD NOTHING TO

DO WITH IT.

I THINK IF DAVID HAD JUST

DEPENDED ON PRAYER AND NOT

HIS SLING SHOT, THINGS

WOULD HAVE BEEN QUITE

DIFFERENT FORTUNAT FOR ISRAEL.

SO THE POSITIVE THING

ABOUT THIS IS A REMINDER

TO PEOPLE OF FAITH, LET'S

GET BUSY.

SOMEONE ONCE DEFINED

INSANITY AS CONTINUING TO

DO THE SAME THING

REPEATEDLY AND EXPECTING

DIFFERENT RESULTS.

WE'VE GOT TO DO BETTER,

AND WE CAN.

Gordon: I THINK

INSANITY IS ONE OF THE

KEYS HERE.

I'M JOINING THE CALLS FOR

CAN'T WE AT LEAST HAVE A

PROHIBITION THAT IF PEOPLE

SEE MENTAL INSTABILITY, IF

THEY PERCEIVE THE THREAT,

OR POTENTIAL THREAT, COULD

THERE BE SOME PROCESS

WHERE YOU CAN'T BUY A

WEAPON?

AND COULD THAT HAVE

STOPPED THE COLORADO MOVIE

THEATER MASSACRE?

COULD THAT HAVE STOPPED

THE FLORIDA ONE?

THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT

SAID WE SAW THIS COMING --

WELL, THEN, SHOULDN'T

THERE BE A MECHANISM THAT

IF YOU SEE IT COMING,

OKAY, NOW WHAT DO WE DO TO

MAKE SURE THEY'RE NOT

ARMED?

YEAH.

I THINK THERE IS ALSO A

SPIRITUAL WARFARE ASPECT

TO THIS.

EPHESIANS 6 SAYS

WE'RE WRESTLING AGAINST

PRINCIPALITIES, THE RULERS

OF THE DARKNESS OF HIS

WORLD.

YOU RARELY HEAR DEMONIC.

YOU HERE CLINICAL PSYCH

PSYCHOLOGICAL STUFF, AND

PETER SAYS, YOUR ENEMY

WALK ABOUT AS A ROARING

LION, SEEKING WHO HE MAY

DEVOUR.

AND SO WE NEED SPIRITUAL

WEAPONS.

Gordon: AND WE HEARD

DEMONIC ACCUSATIONS FROM

THE SHOOTER HIMSELF, THAT

I WAS HEARING DEMONS

INSTRUCTING ME WHAT TO DO

AND HOW TO DO IT.

YUP.

BUT I THINK PEOPLE DONE

BUY INTO THAT.

WE'RE TRYING TO MAKE OUR

VOICES HEARD ON EARTH, AND

WE NEED TO MAKE OUR VOICES

HEARD IN HEAVEN.

2 CORINTHIANS, 2: 14:

"IF MY PEOPLE, CALLED BY

MY NAME, WILL HUMBLE

THEMSELVES AND PRAYER,

I'LL BRING HEALING TO YOUR

LAND."

Gordon: LET'S GET TO

YOUR BOOK, "MAKE YOUR

VOICE HEARD IN HEAVEN" --

I LOVE YOUR FIRST CHAPTER,

PRAY WITH INSISTENCE.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

WELL, WE OFTEN FORGET

THAT THERE IS A SYNERGY IN

PRAYER.

MATTHEW 18: 18 SAYS,

"WHERE TWO YOU OF AGREE ON

ANYTHING, IT WILL BE DONE

FOR YOU BY MY FATHER IN

HEAVEN."

"WHERE TWO OR THREE ARE

GATHERED IN MY NAME, THERE

AM I IN THE MIDST."

THERE IS A POWER WHEN

FOLKS COME TOGETHER.

AND THERE IS ASSISTANCE

WITH THE WORD OF GOD IN

PRAYING THE SCRIPTURES.

I HAD ABOUT A MINUTE AND A

HALF WORTH OF GOOD PRAYER

MATERIAL BEFORE I STARTED

PRAYING THE SCRIPTURES.

AND I STARTED REPEATING

MYSELF.

BUT WHEN I PRAY THE

SCRIPTURES, I HAVE A 66

BOOK LIBRARY, TO HELP ME

TO HAVE A CONVERSATION

WITH THE ONE WHO LOVED ME

ENOUGH TO DIE FOR ME.

AND, I MEAN, IT HAS

ENERGIZED MY PRAYER LIFE.

IT HAS PUT MY PRAYER LIFE

ON STEROIDS.

IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL, THE

POWER YOU GET WHEN YOU

OPEN UP THE WORD OF GOD

AND TAKE THE 121s 121 PSALM --

PRAY THE SCRIPTURES AND

GIVE GOD THE COURTESY OF

STARTING THE CONVERSATION.

Gordon: RIGHT.

START WITH HIS WORD.

EXACTLY.

Gordon: I LIKE TO

REMIND HIM OF HIS

PROMISES.

[LAUGHTER]

I LOVE THAT.

Gordon: AND I ALSO

LIKE TO REMIND HIM, YOU

CHOSE ME.

YOU CHOSE ME.

I DIDN'T CHOOSE YOU.

YOU CHOSE ME.

"YOU HAVE NOT CHOSEN

ME, BUT I HAVE CHOSEN

YOU."

Gordon: WHAT DO YOU

DO WHEN GOD IS SILENT?

BECAUSE I THINK THAT IS

HAPPENING TO A LOT OF

PEOPLE THESE DAYS.

THERE JUST SEEMS THAT

THERE IS A SILENT HEAVEN.

THE SCRIPTURES TALK ABOUT

THE HEAVENS, AND PRAYER

SEEMS TO BOUNCE OFF AND

COME RIGHT BACK TO YOU.

"LIFE IS A NARROW VEIL

BETWEEN THE COLD AND

BARREN PEEKS OF TWO

ETERNITIES.

WE CRY ALOUD AND THE ONLY

ANSWER IS THE ECHO OF OUR

CRY.

GOD SAYS NOTHING."

BUT ENGERSOL CONTINUES,

FROM THE SILENT LIPS OF

THE UNREPLYING DEAD COMES

NOT A SOUND, AND YET IN

THE NIGHT OF DEAD, WE HEAR

THE RUSTLING OF ANGELS'

WINGS."

THE PROMISE GALATIANS 6:

9 IS DON'T BECOME WEARY OF

DOING WHAT IS RIGHT.

PRAYER, GORDON, IS THE

ONLY THING GOD HAS ASKED

US TO DO CONTINUOUSLY.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:

"PRAYER WITHOUT CEASING."

LUKE 18: 1: "PEOPLE

SHOULD ALWAYS PRAY."

AND THAT'S WHAT KEEPS ME

PERSEVERING IN PRAYER.

AND I HAVE DISCOVERED FROM

MY DECADES OF PRAYER, THAT

GOD NEVER LET'S ME DOWN.

HE LOVES US TOO MUCH TO

GET US DOWN.

HE EVER LIVES TO MAKE

INTERCESSION FOR US.

Gordon: AMEN.

IF YOU WANT LESSONS FROM

DECADES OF PRAYER, BARRY'S

BOOK IS CALLED "MAKE YOUR

VOICE HEARD IN HEAVEN:

HOW TO PRAY WITH POWER."

AND TAKE FOR BEING WITH

US.

IMLSES.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Gordon: UP NEXT, HER

NECK PAIN WAS SO BAD SHE

WAS IN MISERY, UNTIL SHE

SAT DOWN ON THE COUCH AND

TURNED ON THE TELEVISION.

DON'T MISS HER MIRACLE,

Gordon: WANDA

FERGUSON HAS BEEN A

FAITHFUL VIEWER OF "THE

700 CLUB" FOR 35 YEARS.

SO WHEN SHE NEEDED A

MIRACLE, SHE KNEW EXACTLY

WHERE TO TURN FOR PRAYER.

I NOTICED THE PAIN WAS

GETTING MORE INTENSE, AND

IT WAS ALL DOWN THE LEFT

SIDE OF MY HEAD AND MY

FACE, AROUND MY EAR.

Reporter: WANDA

FERGUSON SOON DISCOVERED

SHE HAD SHINGLES.

IT WAS SO PAINFUL, AND

I BEGAN TO HAVE RED

SPLOTCHES THAT APPEARED.

Reporter: HER DOCTOR

PRESCRIBED PAIN

MEDICATION, BUT THE RELIEF

WAS ONLY TEMPORARY.

I COULDN'T SIT UP

WITHOUT BEING IN MISERY.

Reporter: WITHIN A

FEW DAYS, HER ACTIVE LIFE

CAME TO A COMPLETE STAND

STILL.

I COULDN'T DO MUCH OF

ANYTHING.

I LAID AROUND.

I JUST COME IN HERE, AND I

WAS TRYING TO GET SOME

KIND OF RELIEF SOMEWHERE,

AND I SAT DOWN ON MY

COUCH.

WHEN I DID, I FLIPPED THE

TELEVISION ON BECAUSE I

HAVE BEEN WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB" FOR 35 YEARS.

AND GORDON ROBERTSON AND

TERRY MEEUWSEN WERE ON.

AND JUST IMMEDIATELY,

AFTER I TURNED IT ON, HE

SAID, SOMEBODY OUT THERE

HAS GOT SHINGLES.

Gordon: YOU'VE GOT

SHINGLES ON THE LEFT SIDE

FOF YOUR FACE, AND IT IS

VERY PAINFUL, AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU NOW.

I NEVER HEARD HIM SAY

THAT BEFORE.

AND AS SOON AS HE SAID

THAT, I KNEW IT WAS FOR

ME.

AND I SAT UP.

AND WHEN I DID, HE SAID,

THOSE BLISTERS ARE GOING

TO GO AWAY.

Gordon: YOUR SKIN IS

GOING TO BE NORMAL.

WHAT THE DOCTORS SAY ABOUT

NERVE DAMAGE, IT DOESN'T

APPLY TO YOU.

GOD IS RESTORING YOUR

NERVES.

NO MORE PAIN AND

SUFFERING.

WHEN HE SAID THAT, THE

PAIN LEFT IMMEDIATELY.

IT WAS INSTANT.

THE PAIN LEFT, AND I

JUMPED UP OFF THE COUCH

AND I JUST STARTED

PRAISING GOD AND THANKING

JESUS AND PRAISING THE

LORD WITH ALL OF MY HEART,

BECAUSE I KNEW I HAD BEEN

HEALED INSTANTLY.

Reporter: A FEW DAYS

LATER, WANDA WAS BACK AT

THE OLD REC CENTER.

I USUALLY WORK OUT 45

MINUTES.

I GO AND I WALK FIRST.

I WALK 30 MINUTES.

AND THEN I GO TO GET ON

THE -- THEY HAVE

STATIONARY BIKES.

AND THEN I LIFT WEIGHTS,

80-POUND WEIGHTS, ABOUT 10

OR 15 TIMES.

Reporter: WANDA LOVES

JESUS, AND SHE LOVES TO

SHARE HER STORY WITH

OTHERS.

I WOULD TELL ANYBODY

ANYWHERE, ANY TIME, IF

YOU'RE REALLY TRUSTING, HE

WILL DO EXACTLY WHAT HE

SAYS.

ISAIAH 53: 5: "BY HIS

STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.

I PRAISE GOD FOR HIS POWER

TO HEAL.

Gordon: BY HIS

STRIPES, E WE ARE HEALED.

WE ARE HEALED.

IT HAS ALREADY BEEN

ACCOMPLISHED.

BY HIS STRIPES, WE ARE

HEALED.

PETER QUOTES THAT VERSE

AND HE CHANGES THE VERB.

AND HE SAYS, "BY HIS

STRIPE WE ARE HEALED."

IT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED.

IF YOU HAVE THE FAITH TO

BELIEVE THAT YOUR SINS OR

FORGIVEN, THEN YOU HAVE

ALL OF THE FAITH YOU NEED

TO BELIEVE FOR HEALING.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

RECEIVE IT.

NOW, WHAT ARE THE BLOCKS

TO HEALING?

WHAT CAN GET IN THE WAY?

WELL, THE BIBLE IS REAL

SPECIFIC IN MARK 11, THAT

UNFORGIVENESS WILL BLOCK

IT.

SO IF YOU HAVE OUGHT

AGAINST ANY, STOP PRAYING

AND GO MAKE IT RIGHT.

IF YOU NEED TO FORGIVE

PEOPLE, IF YOU NEED TO SET

THEM FREE, DO THAT FIRST,

AND THEN COME INTO HIS

PRESENCE.

AND WE CAN DO THAT BOLDLY.

SO LET'S DO THAT NOW.

IF YOU HAVE OUGHT AGAINST

ANY, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY A

PRAYER OF FORGIVENESS.

AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO

PRAY FOR YOUR NEEDS.

AND BELIEVE THAT IT'S

ALREADY BEEN TAKEN CARE

OF, IT HAS ALREADY BEEN

CARRIED AWAY, AND YOU WILL

HAVE IT.

SO IN AN ACT OF FAITH, LAY

YOUR HAND ON THAT AREA OF

THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING, LET'S PRAY, AND

LET'S BELIEVE GOD.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THOSE

WHO NEED HEALING RIGHT

NOW.

WE COME TOGETHER, AND WE

JOIN TOGETHER IN PRAYER

FOR THEM.

LORD, IF THEY HAVE OUGHT

AGAINST ANY, RIGHT NOW WE

SAY OUT LOUD, I FORGIVE

THEM.

IF IT WAS CAUSED BY AN

ACCIDENT, AN INJURY, IF IT

WAS CAUSED INTENTIONALLY,

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

WE FORGIVE THEM, WE SET

THEM FREE.

AND NOW, LORD GOD, STRETCH

FORTH YOUR HAND TO DO

MIRACLES AND TO DO WONDERS

TODAY.

AND AS PEOPLE ARE LAYING

HANDS ON THAT AREA THAT

NEEDS HEALING, WE JOIN

WITH THEM, AND WE KNOW WE

JOIN WITH YOU, AND WE SAY

OUT LOUD TO IT, BE HEALED

AND BE MADE WHOLE IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED,

GIVE US A CALL AND LET US

KNOW.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE'RE

HERE FOR YOU.

WE BELIEVE IN PREVAILING

PRAYER, THE PRAYER THAT

DOESN'T GIVE UP, DOESN'T

FAINT.

> HERE IS A WORD FOR

YOU: "O LORD, YOU ARE MY

GOD.

I WILL EXALT YOU AND I

WILL PRAISE YOUR NAME, FOR
