Christian World News – March 24, 2017


>>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.
