  • NEXT! BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, STORMIE OMARTIAN
  • 00:00:06.200 --> 00:00:09.020
  • DESCRIBES THE POWER OF PRAYING THROUGH FEAR.
  • 00:00:09.050 --> 00:00:11.280
  • - YOU CAN'T BE ALL GOD CALLED YOU TO BE,
  • 00:00:12.010 --> 00:00:13.280
  • YOU CAN'T DO ALL GOD CALLED YOU TO DO
  • 00:00:14.010 --> 00:00:15.280
  • BECAUSE FEAR IS GOING TO LIMIT
  • 00:00:16.010 --> 00:00:17.280
  • WHAT YOU CAN DO AND WHAT YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH.
  • 00:00:18.010 --> 00:00:20.060
  • HE WANTS YOU TO BE FREE OF IT.
  • 00:00:20.090 --> 00:00:22.060
  • THAT'S WHY HE SAYS, HE PROMISES,
  • 00:00:22.090 --> 00:00:24.060
  • "I'VE NOT GIVEN YOU THAT FEAR.
  • 00:00:24.090 --> 00:00:27.140
  • GET CLOSE TO ME, SPEND TIME WITH ME,
  • 00:00:27.170 --> 00:00:29.190
  • WORSHIP ME, AND READ MY WORD."
  • 00:00:29.220 --> 00:00:32.060
  • IT IS ALL ABOUT LIBERATING YOU.
  • 00:00:32.090 --> 00:00:35.280
  • 00:00:42.000 --> 00:00:48.030
  • Sheila: I'M SHEILA WALSH.
  • 00:00:52.200 --> 00:00:55.200
  • WELCOME TO LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:00:55.200 --> 00:00:56.260
  • I'M SO GRATEFUL
  • 00:00:56.260 --> 00:00:58.080
  • THAT I HAVE A GUEST
  • 00:00:58.080 --> 00:00:59.160
  • ON TODAY'S PROGRAM.
  • 00:00:59.160 --> 00:01:00.280
  • SO POWERFULLY
  • 00:01:02.080 --> 00:01:03.190
  • AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:01:03.190 --> 00:01:04.290
  • HER LIFE WAS INCREDIBLY,
  • 00:01:04.290 --> 00:01:06.100
  • UNBEARABLY DIFFICULT
  • 00:01:06.100 --> 00:01:07.210
  • TO START WITH.
  • 00:01:07.210 --> 00:01:09.010
  • BUT NOW WHEN YOU SEE
  • 00:01:09.010 --> 00:01:10.150
  • THE FRUIT SPRINGING UP,
  • 00:01:10.150 --> 00:01:12.040
  • IT IS ALMOST LIKE --
  • 00:01:12.040 --> 00:01:13.100
  • I LOOKED AT A MAP
  • 00:01:13.100 --> 00:01:14.210
  • OF THE WORLD LAST NIGHT
  • 00:01:14.210 --> 00:01:15.280
  • JUST BECAUSE I WANTED
  • 00:01:15.280 --> 00:01:17.080
  • TO GET THIS PERSPECTIVE
  • 00:01:17.080 --> 00:01:18.180
  • AND IT WAS LIKE SEEING
  • 00:01:18.180 --> 00:01:19.250
  • THESE LITTLE FLAMES
  • 00:01:19.250 --> 00:01:21.070
  • CATCHING FIRE
  • 00:01:21.070 --> 00:01:22.160
  • ALL AROUND THE WORLD
  • 00:01:22.160 --> 00:01:23.210
  • BECAUSE OF WHAT GOD HAS DONE
  • 00:01:23.210 --> 00:01:24.280
  • THROUGH HER LIFE
  • 00:01:24.280 --> 00:01:26.040
  • AND THE POWER OF PRAYER.
  • 00:01:26.040 --> 00:01:27.080
  • SO PLEASE,
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:28.160
  • WELCOME MY GUEST WITH ME.
  • 00:01:28.160 --> 00:01:29.230
  • THIS IS STORMIE OMARTIAN.
  • 00:01:29.230 --> 00:01:30.270
  • SO GRATEFUL YOU'RE HERE.
  • 00:01:30.270 --> 00:01:32.060
  • Stormie: OH THANK YOU, SHEILA.
  • 00:01:32.060 --> 00:01:33.150
  • I'M SO GRATEFUL TO BE HERE.
  • 00:01:33.150 --> 00:01:34.190
  • I LOVE THE VISION
  • 00:01:34.190 --> 00:01:35.220
  • OF THE LITTLE FLAMES ALL OVER.
  • 00:01:35.220 --> 00:01:36.270
  • THAT'S EXCITING.
  • 00:01:36.270 --> 00:01:38.030
  • Sheila: YEAH! IT REALLY IS.
  • 00:01:38.030 --> 00:01:39.270
  • I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:01:39.270 --> 00:01:41.110
  • I'VE -- I PUT OUT
  • 00:01:41.110 --> 00:01:42.210
  • A LITTLE THING
  • 00:01:42.210 --> 00:01:43.260
  • IN MY SOCIAL MEDIA SAYING,
  • 00:01:43.260 --> 00:01:45.050
  • "WHEN IT COMES TO PRAYER,
  • 00:01:45.050 --> 00:01:46.180
  • WHAT DO YOU
  • 00:01:46.180 --> 00:01:47.250
  • STRUGGLE MOST WITH?"
  • 00:01:47.250 --> 00:01:49.090
  • AND WITHIN 15 MINUTES
  • 00:01:49.090 --> 00:01:50.240
  • I HAD OVER 500 RESPONSES.
  • 00:01:50.240 --> 00:01:52.270
  • BUT IT WAS INTERESTING
  • 00:01:52.270 --> 00:01:54.060
  • THE THINGS THAT PEOPLE SAID.
  • 00:01:54.060 --> 00:01:55.160
  • "I FEEL LIKE I JUST
  • 00:01:55.160 --> 00:01:56.250
  • REPEAT MYSELF OVER AND OVER."
  • 00:01:56.250 --> 00:01:58.070
  • "I GET DISTRACTED."
  • 00:01:58.070 --> 00:02:00.230
  • "WHY BOTHER PRAYING
  • 00:02:00.230 --> 00:02:02.070
  • IF GOD KNOWS ALREADY
  • 00:02:02.070 --> 00:02:03.150
  • WHAT HE'S GOING TO DO?"
  • 00:02:03.150 --> 00:02:04.210
  • DO YOU GET SOME OF THAT
  • 00:02:04.210 --> 00:02:05.280
  • KIND OF STUFF TOO?
  • 00:02:05.280 --> 00:02:07.030
  • Stormie: OH, I DO. I DO.
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:08.120
  • I'M LAUGHING WITH THEM
  • 00:02:09.190 --> 00:02:10.250
  • BECAUSE THAT'S SO COMMON.
  • 00:02:10.250 --> 00:02:12.230
  • THE THING IS GOD KNOWS
  • 00:02:15.280 --> 00:02:17.140
  • EVERYTHING BUT HE WANTS YOU
  • 00:02:17.140 --> 00:02:19.050
  • TO PARTNER WITH HIM.
  • 00:02:19.050 --> 00:02:20.150
  • HE WANTS YOU --
  • 00:02:20.150 --> 00:02:22.040
  • HE ANSWERS THE PRAYERS
  • 00:02:22.040 --> 00:02:23.240
  • BUT YOU'VE GOT TO PRAY THEM.
  • 00:02:23.240 --> 00:02:25.220
  • THAT'S THE WAY HE SET IT UP.
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:29.120
  • MOST PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE
  • 00:02:29.120 --> 00:02:30.250
  • THAT THEIR PRAYERS HAVE POWER.
  • 00:02:30.250 --> 00:02:32.090
  • THEY THINK IT'S JUST
  • 00:02:32.090 --> 00:02:33.220
  • KIND OF GOING OUT INTO SPACE
  • 00:02:33.220 --> 00:02:35.100
  • AND MAYBE
  • 00:02:35.100 --> 00:02:36.210
  • KIND OF DROPPING OFF.
  • 00:02:36.210 --> 00:02:38.010
  • BUT NO, THEY'RE POWERFUL!
  • 00:02:38.010 --> 00:02:39.070
  • BECAUSE YOU ARE TALKING
  • 00:02:39.070 --> 00:02:40.120
  • TO THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:02:40.120 --> 00:02:41.200
  • AND SOMETIMES,
  • 00:02:41.200 --> 00:02:43.030
  • I BELIEVE PEOPLE
  • 00:02:43.030 --> 00:02:44.120
  • DON'T THINK OF IT THAT WAY.
  • 00:02:44.120 --> 00:02:45.240
  • THAT IT IS ALL COMING
  • 00:02:45.240 --> 00:02:47.060
  • FROM THEM.
  • 00:02:47.060 --> 00:02:48.160
  • AND WHO KNOWS
  • 00:02:48.160 --> 00:02:49.280
  • IF HE HEARS.
  • 00:02:49.280 --> 00:02:51.070
  • GOD HEARS.
  • 00:02:51.070 --> 00:02:52.170
  • IF YOU KNOW HIM,
  • 00:02:52.170 --> 00:02:53.270
  • IF YOU'VE RECEIVED HIM,
  • 00:02:53.270 --> 00:02:55.050
  • HE HEARS YOU
  • 00:02:55.050 --> 00:02:56.160
  • AND HE WILL ANSWER
  • 00:02:56.160 --> 00:02:57.250
  • BUT IT IS IN HIS WAY
  • 00:02:57.250 --> 00:02:59.060
  • AND IN HIS TIMING.
  • 00:02:59.060 --> 00:03:00.220
  • SO THAT'S WHY I WROTE
  • 00:03:00.220 --> 00:03:02.010
  • ALL THESE BOOKS
  • 00:03:02.010 --> 00:03:03.120
  • ON PRAYER BECAUSE
  • 00:03:03.120 --> 00:03:04.210
  • I DON'T THINK IT'S BORING.
  • 00:03:04.210 --> 00:03:05.280
  • "OH, PRAYER IS BORING."
  • 00:03:05.280 --> 00:03:07.080
  • HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT?
  • 00:03:07.080 --> 00:03:08.150
  • YOU'RE TALKING TO THE GOD
  • 00:03:08.150 --> 00:03:09.220
  • OF THE UNIVERSE!
  • 00:03:09.220 --> 00:03:11.030
  • HE HEARS YOU.
  • 00:03:11.030 --> 00:03:12.110
  • Sheila: HAS THAT BEEN
  • 00:03:12.110 --> 00:03:13.140
  • A CHANGING JOURNEY FOR YOU?
  • 00:03:13.140 --> 00:03:14.170
  • WHEN YOU STARTED OFF,
  • 00:03:14.170 --> 00:03:15.200
  • DID YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:03:15.200 --> 00:03:16.210
  • IN THE BEGINNING HOW POWERFUL
  • 00:03:16.210 --> 00:03:17.250
  • YOUR PRAYERS WERE?
  • 00:03:17.250 --> 00:03:18.280
  • Stormie: I DID
  • 00:03:18.280 --> 00:03:20.070
  • Sheila: YEAH!
  • 00:03:21.130 --> 00:03:22.190
  • Stormie: I DID BECAUSE
  • 00:03:22.190 --> 00:03:23.250
  • I WAS JUST SUCH A MESS.
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:25.020
  • JUST ABOUT ANYTHING I PRAYED
  • 00:03:25.020 --> 00:03:26.030
  • WAS GOING TO GET ANSWERED
  • 00:03:26.030 --> 00:03:27.100
  • Sheila: LET'S WORK
  • 00:03:28.190 --> 00:03:29.230
  • ON THIS WOMAN.
  • 00:03:29.230 --> 00:03:30.250
  • Stormie: LET'S HELP HER
  • 00:03:30.250 --> 00:03:32.040
  • IN ANY WAY WE CAN!
  • 00:03:32.040 --> 00:03:33.140
  • I SAW SUCH AMAZING ANSWERS
  • 00:03:33.140 --> 00:03:34.220
  • TO PRAYER BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN,
  • 00:03:34.220 --> 00:03:36.030
  • AS LONG AS I COULD REMEMBER,
  • 00:03:36.030 --> 00:03:37.250
  • HAD SEVERE DEPRESSION
  • 00:03:37.250 --> 00:03:39.150
  • AND ANXIETY --
  • 00:03:39.150 --> 00:03:40.210
  • AND FEAR WAS A BIG THING.
  • 00:03:40.210 --> 00:03:42.090
  • THAT WAS MY WHOLE LIFE.
  • 00:03:42.090 --> 00:03:43.170
  • IF I SUMMED UP MY LIFE
  • 00:03:43.170 --> 00:03:44.210
  • BACK THEN,
  • 00:03:44.210 --> 00:03:45.260
  • FEAR GUIDED EVERYTHING.
  • 00:03:45.260 --> 00:03:47.080
  • SO I WAS IN SUCH PAIN.
  • 00:03:47.090 --> 00:03:50.090
  • AFTER I RECEIVED THE LORD
  • 00:03:50.090 --> 00:03:52.030
  • AND EVERYTHING
  • 00:03:52.030 --> 00:03:53.090
  • I WAS MARRIED TO MY HUSBAND
  • 00:03:53.090 --> 00:03:54.140
  • AND I STILL HAD THE DEPRESSION
  • 00:03:54.140 --> 00:03:56.180
  • AND I'M THINKING, OKAY,
  • 00:03:56.180 --> 00:03:58.040
  • I'VE GOT THE LORD,
  • 00:03:58.040 --> 00:03:59.100
  • I'VE GOT A HUSBAND
  • 00:03:59.100 --> 00:04:00.170
  • WHO LOVES ME,
  • 00:04:00.170 --> 00:04:01.240
  • WHY AM I STILL DEPRESSED
  • 00:04:01.240 --> 00:04:03.030
  • AND WHY AM I STILL SAD
  • 00:04:03.030 --> 00:04:04.100
  • AND BROKENHEARTED
  • 00:04:04.100 --> 00:04:05.210
  • AND ANXIOUS ABOUT EVERYTHING?
  • 00:04:06.110 --> 00:04:09.110
  • SO I WENT TO THE CHURCH
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:10.180
  • WHERE THESE PASTORS' WIVES
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:13.040
  • WERE THERE WHO WERE GIFTED
  • 00:04:13.040 --> 00:04:15.050
  • IN THE KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:04:15.050 --> 00:04:16.160
  • OF THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:04:16.160 --> 00:04:17.220
  • AND WHAT GOD WANTED TO DO
  • 00:04:17.220 --> 00:04:18.280
  • IN OUR LIVES
  • 00:04:18.280 --> 00:04:20.060
  • AND WHAT HE HAS FOR US.
  • 00:04:20.060 --> 00:04:21.120
  • AND THEY KNEW
  • 00:04:21.120 --> 00:04:22.210
  • HOW TO PRAY IN POWER.
  • 00:04:22.210 --> 00:04:23.290
  • SO A PASTOR'S WIFE
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:25.120
  • HAD ME PRAY --
  • 00:04:25.120 --> 00:04:26.190
  • FAST AND PRAY,
  • 00:04:26.190 --> 00:04:28.040
  • BIG DIFFERENCE!
  • 00:04:28.040 --> 00:04:30.070
  • SO FOR THREE DAYS,
  • 00:04:30.070 --> 00:04:31.140
  • I HAD TO FAST AND PRAY
  • 00:04:31.140 --> 00:04:32.200
  • FOR THREE DAYS
  • 00:04:32.200 --> 00:04:33.280
  • AND HOPE I DIDN'T DIE
  • 00:04:33.280 --> 00:04:35.070
  • IN THE NIGHT.
  • 00:04:35.070 --> 00:04:36.150
  • SO I WENT BACK
  • 00:04:36.150 --> 00:04:38.000
  • AND SHE FASTED WITH ME,
  • 00:04:38.000 --> 00:04:39.180
  • SO IT WASN'T JUST ME.
  • 00:04:39.180 --> 00:04:40.250
  • I THOUGHT THAT WAS AMAZING
  • 00:04:40.250 --> 00:04:42.010
  • THAT SOMEONE WOULD FAST
  • 00:04:42.010 --> 00:04:43.090
  • AND DENY THEMSELVES FOOD
  • 00:04:43.090 --> 00:04:44.220
  • FOR A STRANGER LIKE THAT.
  • 00:04:44.220 --> 00:04:46.010
  • I JUST COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:04:46.010 --> 00:04:47.180
  • ANYWAYS, SHE PRAYED FOR ME,
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:50.060
  • I HAD TO CONFESS
  • 00:04:50.060 --> 00:04:51.220
  • ALL MY UNFORGIVENESS
  • 00:04:51.220 --> 00:04:53.000
  • TOWARD MY MOTHER.
  • 00:04:53.000 --> 00:04:54.080
  • I HAD TO CONFESS SINS
  • 00:04:54.080 --> 00:04:56.090
  • THAT WERE REALLY,
  • 00:04:56.090 --> 00:04:58.100
  • THAT I HAD COMMITTED
  • 00:04:58.100 --> 00:04:59.210
  • THAT WERE REALLY
  • 00:04:59.210 --> 00:05:01.010
  • TORMENTING ME.
  • 00:05:01.010 --> 00:05:02.160
  • WHEN SHE PRAYED FOR ME,
  • 00:05:02.280 --> 00:05:05.280
  • I FELT THAT ENTIRE DEPRESSION
  • 00:05:05.280 --> 00:05:08.200
  • LIFT.
  • 00:05:08.200 --> 00:05:10.130
  • ALL OF THAT ANXIETY,
  • 00:05:10.230 --> 00:05:13.230
  • I COULD FEEL IT LIFTING
  • 00:05:15.050 --> 00:05:16.090
  • OFF MY SHOULDERS
  • 00:05:16.090 --> 00:05:17.170
  • LIKE A WEIGHT.
  • 00:05:17.170 --> 00:05:18.220
  • I'LL NEVER FORGET IT
  • 00:05:18.220 --> 00:05:19.290
  • BECAUSE IT CHANGED MY LIFE
  • 00:05:19.290 --> 00:05:21.060
  • BECAUSE FROM THEN ON
  • 00:05:22.100 --> 00:05:23.150
  • I THOUGHT,
  • 00:05:23.150 --> 00:05:24.220
  • IF GOD WOULD DO THIS FOR ME
  • 00:05:24.220 --> 00:05:25.290
  • HOW MUCH MORE
  • 00:05:25.290 --> 00:05:27.060
  • DOES HE WANT TO DO IT
  • 00:05:27.060 --> 00:05:28.130
  • FOR EVERYBODY ELSE?
  • 00:05:28.130 --> 00:05:29.220
  • AND FROM THEN ON
  • 00:05:29.220 --> 00:05:31.030
  • MY GOAL WAS TO SEEK GOD
  • 00:05:31.030 --> 00:05:33.050
  • AND TO LEARN TO PRAY.
  • 00:05:33.050 --> 00:05:34.150
  • TEACH ME HOW TO PRAY, GOD,
  • 00:05:34.150 --> 00:05:35.230
  • HELP ME TO PRAY IN POWER
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:37.010
  • LIKE YOU WANT ME TO.
  • 00:05:37.010 --> 00:05:38.260
  • AND IT WAS JUST
  • 00:05:38.260 --> 00:05:40.050
  • THAT CONSTANT DESIRE FOR THAT;
  • 00:05:40.050 --> 00:05:41.140
  • TO SEE ANSWERS TO PRAYER
  • 00:05:41.140 --> 00:05:42.240
  • FOR OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:42.240 --> 00:05:44.000
  • THAT'S WHY WE HAD
  • 00:05:44.000 --> 00:05:45.050
  • ALL THESE PRAYER GROUPS
  • 00:05:45.050 --> 00:05:46.130
  • IN MY HOUSE;
  • 00:05:46.130 --> 00:05:47.180
  • PRAYING FOR PEOPLE
  • 00:05:47.180 --> 00:05:48.240
  • FOR DIFFERENT REASONS,
  • 00:05:48.240 --> 00:05:49.270
  • PRAYING FOR KIDS,
  • 00:05:49.270 --> 00:05:51.050
  • PRAYING FOR PEOPLE'S CHILDREN,
  • 00:05:51.050 --> 00:05:52.100
  • PRAYING FOR MARRIAGES,
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:53.160
  • PRAYING FOR MINISTRIES,
  • 00:05:53.160 --> 00:05:54.250
  • DIFFERENT THINGS
  • 00:05:54.250 --> 00:05:56.090
  • AND SEEING GOD ANSWER
  • 00:05:56.090 --> 00:05:57.220
  • ALL THESE PRAYERS.
  • 00:05:57.220 --> 00:05:59.020
  • THAT'S WHY I DON'T THINK
  • 00:05:59.020 --> 00:06:00.080
  • PRAYER IS BORING.
  • 00:06:00.080 --> 00:06:01.200
  • I WANT TO TELL PEOPLE,
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:02.270
  • IT IS NOT BORING!
  • 00:06:02.270 --> 00:06:04.040
  • TALKING TO THE GOD OF
  • 00:06:04.040 --> 00:06:05.160
  • THE UNIVERSE AND SEEING HIM
  • 00:06:05.160 --> 00:06:06.220
  • ANSWER YOUR PRAYER
  • 00:06:06.220 --> 00:06:08.000
  • IS NOT BORING.
  • 00:06:08.000 --> 00:06:09.040
  • Sheila: IT SOUNDS LIKE
  • 00:06:09.040 --> 00:06:10.080
  • A NO-BRAINER, REALLY.
  • 00:06:10.080 --> 00:06:11.090
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:06:11.090 --> 00:06:12.120
  • BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY THAT.
  • 00:06:13.170 --> 00:06:14.230
  • Sheila: ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:06:14.230 --> 00:06:16.020
  • I'VE BEEN STUDYING A LOT,
  • 00:06:16.020 --> 00:06:17.120
  • RECENTLY ON PRAYER,
  • 00:06:17.120 --> 00:06:18.210
  • I FOUND IT FASCINATING
  • 00:06:18.210 --> 00:06:19.250
  • IS PRAYER.
  • 00:06:21.000 --> 00:06:22.050
  • THAT THESE GOLDEN BOWLS
  • 00:06:22.050 --> 00:06:23.090
  • OF THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS,
  • 00:06:23.090 --> 00:06:24.150
  • LIKE AN INCENSE
  • 00:06:24.150 --> 00:06:25.190
  • BEFORE THE LORD.
  • 00:06:25.190 --> 00:06:26.250
  • Stormie: YES! YES!
  • 00:06:26.250 --> 00:06:28.000
  • IT'S LIKE YOUR PRAYERS
  • 00:06:28.000 --> 00:06:29.070
  • ARE LASTING.
  • 00:06:29.070 --> 00:06:30.100
  • YOU DON'T JUST PRAY
  • 00:06:30.100 --> 00:06:31.140
  • AND IT DROPS OFF A CLIFF
  • 00:06:31.140 --> 00:06:32.250
  • OR EVAPORATES INTO THIN AIR.
  • 00:06:32.250 --> 00:06:34.000
  • THEY LAST.
  • 00:06:34.000 --> 00:06:35.050
  • YOUR PRAYERS LAST.
  • 00:06:35.050 --> 00:06:36.110
  • YOU COULD PRAY A PRAYER NOW,
  • 00:06:36.110 --> 00:06:37.230
  • A POWERFUL PRAYER
  • 00:06:37.230 --> 00:06:39.020
  • ABOUT GOD SAVING YOUR SON
  • 00:06:39.020 --> 00:06:41.220
  • OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT,
  • 00:06:41.220 --> 00:06:43.020
  • WHATEVER.
  • 00:06:43.020 --> 00:06:44.040
  • AND YOU MAY GO ON TO HEAVEN
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:48.030
  • AND YOU DON'T SEE IT ANSWERED
  • 00:06:48.030 --> 00:06:49.070
  • BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:06:49.070 --> 00:06:50.070
  • YOUR PRAYER IS NOT GOING
  • 00:06:50.070 --> 00:06:51.090
  • TO GET ANSWERED.
  • 00:06:51.090 --> 00:06:52.130
  • Sheila: THAT'S A HUGE POINT!
  • 00:06:52.130 --> 00:06:53.140
  • Stormie: IT IS!
  • 00:06:53.140 --> 00:06:54.190
  • YOUR PRAYERS ARE LASTING.
  • 00:06:54.190 --> 00:06:55.220
  • Sheila: I REMEMBER GROWING UP
  • 00:06:55.220 --> 00:06:56.230
  • IN MY LITTLE CHURCH
  • 00:06:56.230 --> 00:06:57.260
  • IN SCOTLAND.
  • 00:06:57.260 --> 00:06:59.010
  • THIS MAN WHO PRAYED
  • 00:06:59.010 --> 00:07:00.080
  • FOR HIS WIFE FOR YEARS
  • 00:07:00.080 --> 00:07:01.180
  • AND I WOULD GO
  • 00:07:01.180 --> 00:07:02.210
  • TO THE PRAYER MEETING
  • 00:07:02.210 --> 00:07:03.220
  • WITH MY MOM
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:04.220
  • EVERY TUESDAY NIGHT
  • 00:07:04.220 --> 00:07:05.250
  • AND HE WOULD PRAY WITH TEARS
  • 00:07:05.250 --> 00:07:06.250
  • ROLLING DOWN HIS FACE.
  • 00:07:06.250 --> 00:07:07.290
  • SHE GAVE HER LIFE TO CHRIST
  • 00:07:07.290 --> 00:07:09.080
  • AT HIS MEMORIAL SERVICE.
  • 00:07:09.080 --> 00:07:10.120
  • SO HE WOULD NOT KNOW
  • 00:07:10.120 --> 00:07:11.160
  • UNTIL SHE WALKS
  • 00:07:11.160 --> 00:07:12.200
  • THROUGH THE GATES TO JOIN HIM
  • 00:07:12.200 --> 00:07:13.270
  • THE POWER OF PRAYER.
  • 00:07:13.270 --> 00:07:15.010
  • Stormie: THAT IS SO WONDERFUL!
  • 00:07:15.010 --> 00:07:16.050
  • THAT'S EXACTLY IT.
  • 00:07:16.050 --> 00:07:17.090
  • I WANTED OTHER WOMEN
  • 00:07:17.090 --> 00:07:18.190
  • AND MEN TOO,
  • 00:07:18.190 --> 00:07:19.270
  • TO BE EXCITED ABOUT PRAYING,
  • 00:07:19.270 --> 00:07:22.220
  • ABOUT GETTING
  • 00:07:22.220 --> 00:07:23.270
  • INTO GOD'S PRESENCE
  • 00:07:23.270 --> 00:07:25.020
  • AND WORSHIPPING HIM
  • 00:07:25.020 --> 00:07:26.090
  • AND PRAISING HIM
  • 00:07:26.090 --> 00:07:27.090
  • AND PRAYING TO HIM,
  • 00:07:27.090 --> 00:07:28.130
  • COMMUNICATING WITH GOD,
  • 00:07:28.130 --> 00:07:29.200
  • AND TALKING AND LISTENING,
  • 00:07:29.200 --> 00:07:31.180
  • AND SEEING GOD MOVE,
  • 00:07:31.180 --> 00:07:33.140
  • AND SEEING GOD ANSWER.
  • 00:07:33.140 --> 00:07:34.180
  • I BELIEVE WOMEN
  • 00:07:34.180 --> 00:07:35.230
  • ALL OVER THE WORLD,
  • 00:07:35.230 --> 00:07:36.280
  • AND MEN TOO,
  • 00:07:36.280 --> 00:07:38.040
  • I DON'T MEAN TO BE
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:39.100
  • LEAVING MEN OUT.
  • 00:07:39.100 --> 00:07:40.130
  • IT IS JUST THAT I'VE WRITTEN
  • 00:07:40.130 --> 00:07:41.190
  • A LOT OF BOOKS FOR WOMEN,
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:42.220
  • THAT WE CAN BE
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:43.280
  • A MOVEMENT OF PRAYER AND
  • 00:07:43.280 --> 00:07:45.020
  • THESE PRAYERS CAN BE ANSWERED
  • 00:07:45.020 --> 00:07:47.010
  • IN A POWERFUL WAY.
  • 00:07:47.010 --> 00:07:48.170
  • Sheila: THERE COULD NOT BE
  • 00:07:48.170 --> 00:07:49.230
  • A MORE TIMELY BOOK
  • 00:07:49.230 --> 00:07:50.240
  • THAN YOUR NEW BOOK,
  • 00:07:50.240 --> 00:07:51.280
  • THE POWER OF PRAYING
  • 00:07:51.280 --> 00:07:53.070
  • THROUGH FEAR .
  • 00:07:53.070 --> 00:07:55.050
  • WHEN I THINK OF EVERYTHING
  • 00:07:55.050 --> 00:07:56.140
  • THAT'S GOING ON IN OUR NATION,
  • 00:07:56.140 --> 00:07:57.220
  • WHAT LED TO CONCENTRATING
  • 00:07:57.220 --> 00:08:00.240
  • AND FOCUSING
  • 00:08:00.240 --> 00:08:02.030
  • ON THIS SPECIFIC ISSUE?
  • 00:08:02.030 --> 00:08:03.120
  • Stormie: YOU KNOW MY HEART.
  • 00:08:03.120 --> 00:08:04.220
  • THERE IS SO MANY THINGS
  • 00:08:04.220 --> 00:08:06.000
  • TO BE AFRAID OF.
  • 00:08:06.000 --> 00:08:07.060
  • IT IS JUST AN EPIDEMIC.
  • 00:08:07.060 --> 00:08:09.290
  • I WOULD GET TO WHERE
  • 00:08:09.290 --> 00:08:11.220
  • I WOULD BE SAYING HI TO
  • 00:08:11.220 --> 00:08:13.020
  • SOMEONE LIKE AN ACQUAINTANCE,
  • 00:08:13.020 --> 00:08:14.100
  • SOMEONE I DIDN'T EVEN
  • 00:08:14.100 --> 00:08:15.180
  • KNOW WELL SAYING,
  • 00:08:15.180 --> 00:08:16.280
  • AND THEY WOULD SAY,
  • 00:08:18.100 --> 00:08:19.250
  • "OH, I'M SO AFRAID."
  • 00:08:19.250 --> 00:08:22.070
  • THERE ARE MANY THINGS
  • 00:08:25.080 --> 00:08:27.250
  • TO BE AFRAID OF
  • 00:08:27.250 --> 00:08:29.010
  • BUT WHAT ARE YOU SPECIFICALLY
  • 00:08:29.010 --> 00:08:30.150
  • AFRAID OF MOST?
  • 00:08:30.150 --> 00:08:32.000
  • AND THEY WOULD TELL ME.
  • 00:08:32.000 --> 00:08:33.070
  • AND THEY WOULD BE DIFFERENT
  • 00:08:33.070 --> 00:08:34.110
  • FOR DIFFERENT PEOPLE.
  • 00:08:34.110 --> 00:08:35.170
  • THEY WOULD BE AFRAID TO GO
  • 00:08:35.170 --> 00:08:36.210
  • INTO A PUBLIC PLACE.
  • 00:08:36.210 --> 00:08:37.260
  • THEY'RE AFRAID
  • 00:08:37.260 --> 00:08:38.290
  • FOR THEIR KIDS IN SCHOOL.
  • 00:08:38.290 --> 00:08:40.020
  • THEY'RE AFRAID
  • 00:08:40.020 --> 00:08:41.070
  • THAT THEY'RE GOING TO GET
  • 00:08:41.070 --> 00:08:42.110
  • A BAD DIAGNOSIS
  • 00:08:42.110 --> 00:08:43.180
  • FROM THE DOCTOR.
  • 00:08:43.180 --> 00:08:44.210
  • THEY'RE AFRAID
  • 00:08:44.210 --> 00:08:45.260
  • OF ALL KINDS OF THINGS.
  • 00:08:45.260 --> 00:08:47.000
  • IT IS JUST ENDLESS, THE FEAR.
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:48.060
  • I THOUGHT,
  • 00:08:48.060 --> 00:08:49.130
  • I SAID, GOD, I KNOW
  • 00:08:49.130 --> 00:08:51.280
  • THAT YOU DIDN'T GIVE US
  • 00:08:51.280 --> 00:08:53.110
  • A SPIRIT OF FEAR.
  • 00:08:53.110 --> 00:08:54.160
  • WHEN FEAR OVER TAKES OUR LIFE
  • 00:08:54.160 --> 00:08:55.170
  • AND CONTROLS OUR LIFE
  • 00:08:55.170 --> 00:08:56.180
  • IT IS A SPIRIT OF FEAR
  • 00:08:56.180 --> 00:08:57.200
  • IN CHARGE.
  • 00:08:57.200 --> 00:08:58.260
  • I WANT YOU TO CHARGE.
  • 00:08:58.260 --> 00:09:00.190
  • YOU'VE GIVEN US LOVE
  • 00:09:00.190 --> 00:09:02.050
  • AND POWER AND A SOUND MIND.
  • 00:09:02.050 --> 00:09:03.130
  • I WANT PEOPLE,
  • 00:09:03.130 --> 00:09:04.270
  • AND MYSELF INCLUDED,
  • 00:09:04.270 --> 00:09:06.130
  • TO LAY CLAIM TO THAT LOVE,
  • 00:09:06.130 --> 00:09:08.260
  • YOUR LOVE, YOUR POWER
  • 00:09:08.260 --> 00:09:10.230
  • AND THE SOUND MIND
  • 00:09:10.230 --> 00:09:12.030
  • YOU HAVE FOR US.
  • 00:09:12.030 --> 00:09:13.070
  • AND SO THAT WAS THE BASIS
  • 00:09:13.070 --> 00:09:14.240
  • FOR THIS BOOK.
  • 00:09:14.240 --> 00:09:16.080
  • WHEN I WAS --
  • 00:09:17.170 --> 00:09:18.250
  • MY HUSBAND'S FATHER,
  • 00:09:18.250 --> 00:09:20.000
  • MY FATHER-IN-LAW, HIS DAD
  • 00:09:20.080 --> 00:09:23.080
  • AND SOMEBODY BROKE IN
  • 00:09:24.170 --> 00:09:25.220
  • AND THEY LOCKED HIM
  • 00:09:25.220 --> 00:09:26.270
  • IN ONE OF THOSE BARRELS.
  • 00:09:26.270 --> 00:09:28.020
  • THEY NAILED IT SHUT.
  • 00:09:28.020 --> 00:09:29.260
  • HE WAS LEFT ABANDONED.
  • 00:09:29.260 --> 00:09:31.000
  • HE THOUGHT
  • 00:09:31.000 --> 00:09:32.040
  • HE WAS GOING TO DIE.
  • 00:09:32.040 --> 00:09:33.080
  • IT SO IMPACTED
  • 00:09:33.080 --> 00:09:34.100
  • THE REST OF HIS LIFE.
  • 00:09:34.100 --> 00:09:35.150
  • HE LIVED PERPETUALLY IN FEAR.
  • 00:09:35.150 --> 00:09:37.060
  • ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:09:37.060 --> 00:09:38.120
  • I THINK IS TRUE ABOUT FEAR
  • 00:09:38.120 --> 00:09:39.160
  • IS IT IS PARALYZING.
  • 00:09:39.160 --> 00:09:41.040
  • IT STOPS YOU FROM BEING
  • 00:09:41.040 --> 00:09:42.100
  • WHO GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO BE.
  • 00:09:42.100 --> 00:09:43.290
  • Stormie: THAT'S EXACTLY
  • 00:09:43.290 --> 00:09:45.050
  • WHAT I PUT IN THERE.
  • 00:09:45.050 --> 00:09:46.090
  • YOU CAN'T BE
  • 00:09:46.090 --> 00:09:47.140
  • ALL GOD CALLED YOU TO BE,
  • 00:09:47.140 --> 00:09:48.180
  • YOU CAN'T DO
  • 00:09:48.180 --> 00:09:49.240
  • ALL GOD CALLED YOU TO DO
  • 00:09:49.240 --> 00:09:50.280
  • BECAUSE FEAR IS GOING
  • 00:09:50.280 --> 00:09:52.030
  • TO LIMIT WHAT YOU CAN DO
  • 00:09:52.030 --> 00:09:53.060
  • AND WHAT YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH.
  • 00:09:53.060 --> 00:09:54.110
  • AND HE WANTS YOU
  • 00:09:54.110 --> 00:09:55.160
  • TO BE FREE OF IT.
  • 00:09:55.160 --> 00:09:56.200
  • THAT'S WHY HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:56.200 --> 00:09:57.230
  • HE PROMISES,
  • 00:09:57.230 --> 00:09:58.280
  • "I HAVE NOT GIVEN YOU THAT.
  • 00:09:58.280 --> 00:10:00.030
  • I HAVE NOT GIVEN YOU
  • 00:10:00.030 --> 00:10:01.080
  • THAT FEAR.
  • 00:10:01.080 --> 00:10:02.130
  • GET CLOSE TO ME,
  • 00:10:02.130 --> 00:10:03.180
  • SPEND TIME WITH ME,
  • 00:10:03.180 --> 00:10:04.230
  • AND WORSHIP ME.
  • 00:10:04.230 --> 00:10:05.280
  • READ MY WORD."
  • 00:10:05.280 --> 00:10:07.030
  • IT'S ALL ABOUT LIBERATING YOU
  • 00:10:07.030 --> 00:10:08.210
  • FROM FEAR.
  • 00:10:08.210 --> 00:10:10.090
  • Sheila: ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:10:10.090 --> 00:10:11.200
  • I THINK
  • 00:10:11.200 --> 00:10:12.250
  • IS AN IMPORTANT DISTINCTION
  • 00:10:12.250 --> 00:10:13.280
  • IS YOU CAN LIVE
  • 00:10:13.280 --> 00:10:15.010
  • IN THIS WORLD
  • 00:10:15.010 --> 00:10:16.070
  • KNOWING THAT SOME THINGS
  • 00:10:16.070 --> 00:10:17.110
  • ARE GOING TO HAPPEN
  • 00:10:17.110 --> 00:10:18.120
  • THAT ARE NOT GOOD
  • 00:10:18.120 --> 00:10:19.150
  • BUT NOT LIVE IN FEAR.
  • 00:10:19.150 --> 00:10:20.210
  • HOW DO YOU GET TO THAT PLACE
  • 00:10:20.210 --> 00:10:21.250
  • WHERE YOU THINK, OKAY,
  • 00:10:21.250 --> 00:10:22.280
  • SOMETHING COULD HAPPEN
  • 00:10:22.280 --> 00:10:24.000
  • TO MY CHILD AT SCHOOL, OR
  • 00:10:24.000 --> 00:10:25.040
  • I COULD GET A BAD DIAGNOSIS.
  • 00:10:25.040 --> 00:10:26.130
  • HOW DO YOU LIVE WITH THAT
  • 00:10:26.130 --> 00:10:28.050
  • AND NOT BE AFRAID?
  • 00:10:28.050 --> 00:10:29.220
  • HOW DO YOU SHIFT?
  • 00:10:29.220 --> 00:10:31.010
  • Stormie: YOU HAVE TO GET
  • 00:10:31.010 --> 00:10:32.030
  • CLOSE TO GOD WHICH MEANS
  • 00:10:32.030 --> 00:10:33.030
  • SPENDING TIME WITH HIM.
  • 00:10:33.030 --> 00:10:34.060
  • IT MEANS LIVING HIS WAY,
  • 00:10:34.060 --> 00:10:36.220
  • TO THE BEST OF YOUR ABILITY.
  • 00:10:36.220 --> 00:10:39.140
  • IT MEANS SPENDING TIME
  • 00:10:39.140 --> 00:10:41.090
  • IN WORSHIP;
  • 00:10:41.090 --> 00:10:42.120
  • THAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:10:42.120 --> 00:10:43.160
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU WORSHIP GOD
  • 00:10:43.160 --> 00:10:44.220
  • IT IS LIKE A FUNNEL THAT
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:46.020
  • HE POURS INTO YOU HIMSELF.
  • 00:10:46.080 --> 00:10:49.080
  • HE POURS HIS LOVE
  • 00:10:49.080 --> 00:10:50.180
  • AND HIS PEACE AND HIS POWER
  • 00:10:50.180 --> 00:10:51.210
  • AND ALL THESE THINGS
  • 00:10:51.210 --> 00:10:52.230
  • LIKE A FUNNEL.
  • 00:10:52.230 --> 00:10:54.070
  • WHEN YOU SPEND TIME WITH HIM
  • 00:10:54.070 --> 00:10:55.260
  • AND PRAYING AND SAYING,
  • 00:10:55.260 --> 00:10:57.160
  • GOD, I'M REALLY CONCERNED
  • 00:10:57.160 --> 00:10:58.250
  • ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:10:58.250 --> 00:11:00.020
  • THIS IS REALLY
  • 00:11:00.020 --> 00:11:01.040
  • MAKING ME AFRAID.
  • 00:11:01.040 --> 00:11:02.070
  • I'M SO AFRAID
  • 00:11:02.070 --> 00:11:03.130
  • WITH MY CHILDREN AT SCHOOL
  • 00:11:03.130 --> 00:11:04.200
  • THAT SOMETHING
  • 00:11:04.200 --> 00:11:05.270
  • IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THEM.
  • 00:11:05.270 --> 00:11:07.040
  • OR I'M AFRAID I'M GOING
  • 00:11:07.040 --> 00:11:08.150
  • TO GET A TERRIBLE DIAGNOSIS
  • 00:11:08.150 --> 00:11:09.270
  • FROM THE DOCTOR.
  • 00:11:09.270 --> 00:11:11.090
  • ALL THESE THINGS --
  • 00:11:11.090 --> 00:11:12.150
  • BUT TAKE IT,
  • 00:11:12.150 --> 00:11:13.250
  • WHATEVER YOU'RE AFRAID OF,
  • 00:11:13.250 --> 00:11:15.020
  • TAKE IT TO HIM IN PRAYER.
  • 00:11:15.020 --> 00:11:16.070
  • DON'T JUST SAY,
  • 00:11:16.070 --> 00:11:17.190
  • "I'LL JUST IGNORE IT
  • 00:11:17.190 --> 00:11:20.040
  • AND MAYBE IT WILL GO AWAY."
  • 00:11:20.040 --> 00:11:21.100
  • BECAUSE IT WILL
  • 00:11:21.100 --> 00:11:22.150
  • ALWAYS BE THERE.
  • 00:11:22.150 --> 00:11:23.220
  • SO TAKE IT TO HIM.
  • 00:11:23.220 --> 00:11:24.250
  • SAY, "GOD, PROTECT
  • 00:11:24.250 --> 00:11:26.150
  • MY CHILDREN IN SCHOOL.
  • 00:11:26.150 --> 00:11:28.150
  • HELP US TO DO THE RIGHT THING
  • 00:11:28.150 --> 00:11:30.100
  • WITH OUR BODIES, GOD
  • 00:11:30.100 --> 00:11:31.170
  • SO WE DON'T GET INTO TROUBLE.
  • 00:11:31.170 --> 00:11:33.170
  • BUT GOD, WE KNOW
  • 00:11:33.170 --> 00:11:34.240
  • THAT YOU ARE THE HEALER.
  • 00:11:34.240 --> 00:11:36.100
  • AND LORD, I PRAY
  • 00:11:36.100 --> 00:11:37.200
  • THAT YOU WOULD KEEP US WELL
  • 00:11:37.200 --> 00:11:39.040
  • AND HEAL US WHEN WE'RE NOT."
  • 00:11:39.040 --> 00:11:41.190
  • -- TO ALL THESE THINGS.
  • 00:11:41.190 --> 00:11:42.240
  • I REMEMBER THINKING,
  • 00:11:42.240 --> 00:11:44.040
  • WHEN MY FIRST,
  • 00:11:44.040 --> 00:11:46.080
  • THE POWER OF A PRAYING PARENT
  • 00:11:46.080 --> 00:11:47.130
  • BOOK CAME OUT,
  • 00:11:47.130 --> 00:11:49.030
  • I WENT AROUND TO
  • 00:11:49.030 --> 00:11:50.110
  • THE DIFFERENT SCHOOLS
  • 00:11:50.110 --> 00:11:51.220
  • AND TALKED; DID A TALK
  • 00:11:51.220 --> 00:11:52.260
  • ON THE POWER
  • 00:11:52.260 --> 00:11:54.030
  • OF A PRAYING PARENT,
  • 00:11:54.030 --> 00:11:55.080
  • ORGANIZE A PRAYER MEETING.
  • 00:11:57.260 --> 00:11:59.070
  • SOMETIMES THEY COULD MEET
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:12:00.170
  • AT THE SCHOOL,
  • 00:12:00.170 --> 00:12:01.230
  • SOMETIMES THEY MET
  • 00:12:01.230 --> 00:12:02.270
  • IN THEIR HOMES AND WHATEVER,
  • 00:12:02.270 --> 00:12:04.110
  • PRAY, IF YOU'RE A PARENT
  • 00:12:05.200 --> 00:12:06.280
  • WITH KIDS IN SCHOOL,
  • 00:12:06.280 --> 00:12:08.000
  • PRAY FOR THAT SCHOOL.
  • 00:12:08.000 --> 00:12:09.030
  • PRAY THAT NO WEAPON FORMED
  • 00:12:09.030 --> 00:12:10.140
  • AGAINST IT WILL PROSPER.
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:12.120
  • ALL THESE THINGS
  • 00:12:12.120 --> 00:12:13.180
  • THAT YOU CAN PRAY.
  • 00:12:13.180 --> 00:12:14.230
  • AND JUST BE A PRAYING WOMAN.
  • 00:12:15.150 --> 00:12:18.150
  • Sheila: IT'S KIND
  • 00:12:18.150 --> 00:12:19.290
  • OF FASCINATING
  • 00:12:19.290 --> 00:12:21.050
  • AND CHALLENGING TO ME
  • 00:12:21.050 --> 00:12:22.070
  • WHEN I LOOK AT MY OWN LIFE.
  • 00:12:22.070 --> 00:12:23.090
  • I GAVE MY LIFE TO CHRIST
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:24.130
  • WHEN I WAS 11.
  • 00:12:24.130 --> 00:12:25.180
  • BUT FOR MANY YEARS I LIVED
  • 00:12:25.180 --> 00:12:26.220
  • WITH TREMENDOUS DEPRESSION
  • 00:12:26.220 --> 00:12:27.260
  • AND FEAR.
  • 00:12:27.260 --> 00:12:28.290
  • SEVERE CLINICAL DEPRESSION.
  • 00:12:30.060 --> 00:12:31.070
  • I ENDED UP
  • 00:12:31.070 --> 00:12:32.150
  • IN A PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL.
  • 00:12:32.150 --> 00:12:33.230
  • MY FATHER COMMITTED SUICIDE
  • 00:12:33.230 --> 00:12:35.020
  • IN A PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL.
  • 00:12:35.020 --> 00:12:36.090
  • WHATEVER WAS IN HIM IS IN ME.
  • 00:12:37.210 --> 00:12:39.220
  • BUT I STAND WITH YOU,
  • 00:12:39.220 --> 00:12:42.050
  • STORMIE, KNOWING THAT
  • 00:12:42.050 --> 00:12:44.110
  • THE POWER OF THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:12:44.110 --> 00:12:46.120
  • CAN BREAK ALL OF THOSE YOKES
  • 00:12:46.120 --> 00:12:48.170
  • AND THOSE THINGS
  • 00:12:48.170 --> 00:12:49.230
  • THAT YOU THINK,
  • 00:12:49.230 --> 00:12:50.270
  • SO MANY I'M THINKING
  • 00:12:50.270 --> 00:12:51.270
  • OF SOME VIEWERS THINKING,
  • 00:12:51.270 --> 00:12:52.270
  • THIS IS JUST INEVITABLE.
  • 00:12:52.270 --> 00:12:53.270
  • BUT IN CHRIST IT IS NOT.
  • 00:12:53.270 --> 00:12:54.270
  • Stormie: NO, IT'S NOT!
  • 00:12:54.270 --> 00:12:55.270
  • EXACTLY.
  • 00:12:55.270 --> 00:12:56.290
  • YOU CAN BREAK
  • 00:12:56.290 --> 00:12:57.290
  • THOSE FAMILY CURSES
  • 00:12:57.290 --> 00:12:59.020
  • AND SAY, I JUST REFUSE --
  • 00:12:59.020 --> 00:13:00.090
  • MY MOTHER IS MENTALLY ILL TOO
  • 00:13:00.180 --> 00:13:03.180
  • AND VERY FRIGHTENING AND SO
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:04.290
  • I HAD THAT SPIRIT
  • 00:13:04.290 --> 00:13:06.050
  • OF FEAR ON ME
  • 00:13:06.050 --> 00:13:08.140
  • AS FAR AS BACK
  • 00:13:08.140 --> 00:13:09.240
  • AS I COULD REMEMBER.
  • 00:13:09.240 --> 00:13:10.290
  • BUT I PRAYED FOR MY KIDS
  • 00:13:10.290 --> 00:13:12.050
  • THAT IT WOULD NOT
  • 00:13:12.050 --> 00:13:13.080
  • COME ON THEM.
  • 00:13:13.080 --> 00:13:14.100
  • I WAS ALWAYS AFRAID
  • 00:13:14.100 --> 00:13:15.170
  • THAT I'D INHERIT IT
  • 00:13:15.170 --> 00:13:16.170
  • AND I JUST PRAYED FOR THEM
  • 00:13:16.170 --> 00:13:17.260
  • THAT THEY WOULD NEVER
  • 00:13:17.260 --> 00:13:19.160
  • INHERIT ANYTHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:13:19.160 --> 00:13:20.260
  • JUST CONSTANTLY PRAYING.
  • 00:13:21.230 --> 00:13:24.230
  • THEY DIDN'T
  • 00:13:24.230 --> 00:13:26.060
  • AND I DIDN'T EITHER.
  • 00:13:26.060 --> 00:13:27.210
  • SO PRAYER IS REALLY POWERFUL.
  • 00:13:27.210 --> 00:13:29.050
  • SO WHATEVER YOU'RE AFRAID OF,
  • 00:13:29.050 --> 00:13:30.130
  • START PRAYING.
  • 00:13:30.130 --> 00:13:31.260
  • I KNOW YOU THINK,
  • 00:13:31.260 --> 00:13:33.010
  • I'VE GOT THIS LITTLE PRAYER
  • 00:13:33.010 --> 00:13:34.070
  • AND THIS PROBLEM IS SO BIG
  • 00:13:34.070 --> 00:13:36.050
  • AND HOW CAN WE CONTROL
  • 00:13:36.050 --> 00:13:37.140
  • EVERYTHING?
  • 00:13:37.140 --> 00:13:38.150
  • YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:13:38.150 --> 00:13:39.160
  • TO CONTROL ANYTHING.
  • 00:13:39.160 --> 00:13:40.200
  • LET GOD, INVITE GOD
  • 00:13:40.200 --> 00:13:41.260
  • TO BE IN CONTROL.
  • 00:13:41.260 --> 00:13:43.010
  • LET HIM BE IN CONTROL
  • 00:13:43.010 --> 00:13:44.050
  • OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:13:44.050 --> 00:13:45.090
  • LET HIM BE IN CONTROL
  • 00:13:45.090 --> 00:13:46.150
  • OF YOUR SCHOOL.
  • 00:13:46.150 --> 00:13:47.180
  • THESE WOMEN PRAYING

  • WE HAVEN'T LOST A KID YET
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:53.030
  • AND I KNOW THAT
  • 00:13:53.030 --> 00:13:54.080
  • THEIR PRAYERS ARE POWERFUL.
  • 00:13:54.080 --> 00:13:55.170
  • I'M SAYING THAT PRAYER WORKS.
  • 00:13:55.170 --> 00:13:56.230
  • THAT'S ALL I'M SAYING.
  • 00:13:56.230 --> 00:13:58.010
  • Sheila: SO I'M THINKING OF,
  • 00:13:58.010 --> 00:13:59.240
  • I KNOW SOME OF THE LETTERS

  • I GET FROM SOME OF YOU.
  • 00:14:01.000 --> 00:14:02.020
  • I'M THINKING OF SOMEBODY

  • LISTENING IN AND WATCHING
  • 00:14:03.020 --> 00:14:04.060
  • AND THINKING, I BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:14:04.060 --> 00:14:06.000
  • I WANT TO DO IT BUT
  • 00:14:06.000 --> 00:14:07.040
  • I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START.
  • 00:14:07.040 --> 00:14:08.190
  • BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK,
  • 00:14:08.190 --> 00:14:09.200
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.
  • 00:14:09.200 --> 00:14:10.200
  • I'M NOT A PRAYER WARRIOR.
  • 00:14:10.200 --> 00:14:11.210
  • WHAT WOULD YOU SAY
  • 00:14:11.210 --> 00:14:12.240
  • TO SOMEBODY WHO SAYS,
  • 00:14:12.240 --> 00:14:13.250
  • "WHERE DO I START?"
  • 00:14:13.250 --> 00:14:14.280
  • Stormie: BUY MY BOOKS; OKAY?
  • 00:14:14.280 --> 00:14:16.060

  • A BRILLIANT ANSWER!
  • 00:14:18.270 --> 00:14:20.030
  • Stormie: I GAVE MY LIFE,

  • POURED MY LIFE
  • 00:14:22.140 --> 00:14:23.230
  • INTO THESE BOOKS.
  • 00:14:23.230 --> 00:14:24.230
  • I DID!
  • 00:14:24.230 --> 00:14:25.270
  • AND I WROTE THEM FOR YOU.
  • 00:14:25.270 --> 00:14:27.040
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:14:27.040 --> 00:14:28.080
  • HOW TO PRAY.
  • 00:14:28.080 --> 00:14:29.120
  • ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:14:29.120 --> 00:14:30.150
  • SHOCKING THINGS TO ME
  • 00:14:30.150 --> 00:14:31.180
  • IS THAT AFTER I'D SEEN ALL

  • THESE ANSWERS TO PRAYER IS
  • 00:14:33.000 --> 00:14:34.030
  • THAT PEOPLE WEREN'T PRAYING.
  • 00:14:34.030 --> 00:14:35.060
  • I'M TALKING BELIEVERS,
  • 00:14:35.060 --> 00:14:36.090
  • A LOT OF BELIEVERS
  • 00:14:36.090 --> 00:14:37.120
  • WEREN'T PRAYING.
  • 00:14:37.120 --> 00:14:38.150
  • I THOUGHT, OH,
  • 00:14:38.150 --> 00:14:39.180
  • THIS HAS GOT TO CHANGE.
  • 00:14:39.180 --> 00:14:40.210
  • SO I WOULD ORGANIZE
  • 00:14:41.000 --> 00:14:44.000
  • PRAYER GROUPS IN OTHER PLACES
  • 00:14:44.000 --> 00:14:45.160
  • AND IN OTHER PEOPLE'S HOMES
  • 00:14:45.160 --> 00:14:46.240
  • AND IN OTHER STATES
  • 00:14:46.240 --> 00:14:48.290
  • IN OTHER COUNTRIES;
  • 00:14:48.290 --> 00:14:50.080
  • AND ORGANIZE,
  • 00:14:50.080 --> 00:14:51.130
  • WHERE TWO OR MORE ARE GATHERED
  • 00:14:51.130 --> 00:14:53.040
  • GOD SAYS HE'S RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:14:53.040 --> 00:14:54.070
  • HE'S IN THE MIDST OF THEM.
  • 00:14:54.070 --> 00:14:55.190
  • "I'M THERE.
  • 00:14:55.190 --> 00:14:56.240
  • IF YOU'VE GOT TWO OR MORE,
  • 00:14:56.240 --> 00:14:57.290
  • SO INVITE HIM.
  • 00:14:59.150 --> 00:15:01.230
  • INVITE SOMEONE ELSE
  • 00:15:01.230 --> 00:15:03.020
  • AND INVITE HIM IN PRAYER
  • 00:15:03.020 --> 00:15:05.070
  • TO BE A PART
  • 00:15:05.070 --> 00:15:06.150
  • ALL IT TAKES
  • 00:15:07.170 --> 00:15:08.210
  • IS ONE OTHER PERSON
  • 00:15:08.210 --> 00:15:09.260
  • AND YOU CAN ADD
  • 00:15:09.260 --> 00:15:11.010
  • AS MANY AS YOU WANT.
  • 00:15:11.010 --> 00:15:12.060
  • IT'S JUST STARTING TO DO IT.
  • 00:15:12.060 --> 00:15:15.040
  • SAYING, "GOD,
  • 00:15:15.040 --> 00:15:16.130
  • I'M NOT GOOD AT THIS.
  • 00:15:16.130 --> 00:15:17.170
  • I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START,
  • 00:15:17.170 --> 00:15:18.210
  • OR WHAT TO PRAY."
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:19.250
  • USUALLY YOU START
  • 00:15:19.250 --> 00:15:21.010
  • RIGHT IN THE WORD.
  • 00:15:21.010 --> 00:15:22.050
  • IF YOU READ ANY OF THE WORD
  • 00:15:22.050 --> 00:15:23.070
  • IT'S GOING TO INSPIRE YOU
  • 00:15:23.070 --> 00:15:24.110
  • TO PRAY ABOUT SOMETHING.
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:25.200
  • Sheila: ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:15:25.200 --> 00:15:26.250
  • I LOVE
  • 00:15:26.250 --> 00:15:28.020
  • IS THAT MY UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:15:28.020 --> 00:15:29.110
  • IS LIKE THE PSALMS
  • 00:15:29.110 --> 00:15:30.200
  • WERE JESUS' PRAYER BOOK.
  • 00:15:30.200 --> 00:15:31.260
  • WE CAN PRAY THE PSALMS
  • 00:15:31.260 --> 00:15:33.020
  • BACK TO GOD AS WELL.
  • 00:15:33.020 --> 00:15:34.070
  • I FIND THAT IT'S ALMOST LIKE
  • 00:15:34.070 --> 00:15:35.090
  • GOD GIVES US WORDS THEN
  • 00:15:35.090 --> 00:15:36.120
  • TO BE ABLE TO KNOW
  • 00:15:36.120 --> 00:15:37.170
  • HOW TO PRAY BACK.
  • 00:15:37.170 --> 00:15:38.220
  • I LOVE THAT!
  • 00:15:38.220 --> 00:15:39.250
  • IS THERE ANY WAY
  • 00:15:39.250 --> 00:15:41.040
  • THAT GOD USES FEAR
  • 00:15:41.040 --> 00:15:42.070
  • FOR A GOOD PURPOSE?
  • 00:15:42.070 --> 00:15:43.130
  • Stormie: YES!
  • 00:15:43.130 --> 00:15:44.220
  • FEAR CAN BE GOOD OR BAD.
  • 00:15:44.220 --> 00:15:47.090
  • MOSTLY BAD IF IT IS
  • 00:15:47.090 --> 00:15:48.160
  • CONTROLLING YOUR LIFE;
  • 00:15:48.160 --> 00:15:49.160
  • GOOD IF IT IS DRAWING YOU
  • 00:15:49.160 --> 00:15:50.210
  • CLOSE TO GOD.
  • 00:15:50.210 --> 00:15:51.260
  • IF YOU ARE AFRAID OF SOMETHING
  • 00:15:51.260 --> 00:15:53.090
  • AND IT BRINGS YOU
  • 00:15:53.090 --> 00:15:54.230
  • TO YOUR KNEES, THAT'S GOOD!
  • 00:15:54.230 --> 00:15:57.080
  • THAT'S GOOD!
  • 00:15:57.080 --> 00:15:58.160
  • OR MAYBE YOU'RE AFRAID,
  • 00:15:58.160 --> 00:15:59.230
  • I DON'T FEEL LIKE I SHOULD
  • 00:15:59.230 --> 00:16:01.020
  • BE DRIVING INTO TOWN TONIGHT.
  • 00:16:01.020 --> 00:16:03.130
  • AND THERE ON THE ROAD
  • 00:16:03.130 --> 00:16:05.120
  • IS A HUGE ACCIDENT.
  • 00:16:05.120 --> 00:16:06.260
  • THERE'S THINGS LIKE THAT
  • 00:16:06.260 --> 00:16:08.020
  • THAT HAPPEN
  • 00:16:08.020 --> 00:16:09.060
  • AND HAVE HAPPENED TO ME.
  • 00:16:09.060 --> 00:16:10.110
  • WHERE I THOUGHT, OH NO,
  • 00:16:10.110 --> 00:16:11.200
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO TODAY.
  • 00:16:11.200 --> 00:16:13.040
  • AND SURE ENOUGH,
  • 00:16:13.040 --> 00:16:14.160
  • THERE WAS SOME HORRIBLE THING.
  • 00:16:14.160 --> 00:16:16.110
  • IF YOU'RE CONSTANTLY PRAYING
  • 00:16:16.110 --> 00:16:19.000
  • AND CONSTANTLY IN TUNE
  • 00:16:19.000 --> 00:16:20.080
  • WITH THE LORD,
  • 00:16:20.080 --> 00:16:21.250
  • IF HE LETS YOU BE AFRAID
  • 00:16:21.250 --> 00:16:24.070
  • OF SOMETHING ASK HIM,
  • 00:16:24.070 --> 00:16:26.010
  • "GOD, ARE YOU TRYING
  • 00:16:26.010 --> 00:16:28.280
  • TO TELL ME SOMETHING
  • 00:16:28.280 --> 00:16:30.040
  • WITH THIS?"
  • 00:16:30.040 --> 00:16:31.050
  • AND HE WILL.
  • 00:16:31.050 --> 00:16:32.050
  • PAY ATTENTION! EXACTLY!
  • 00:16:32.050 --> 00:16:34.190
  • THAT'S WHEN IT IS GOOD.
  • 00:16:34.190 --> 00:16:36.060
  • Sheila: I TOTALLY SEE THAT.
  • 00:16:36.060 --> 00:16:37.120
  • THAT CAN EITHER DRIVE YOU
  • 00:16:37.120 --> 00:16:38.180
  • FURTHER AWAY FROM GOD
  • 00:16:38.180 --> 00:16:39.200
  • OR IT CAN PUSH YOU
  • 00:16:39.200 --> 00:16:40.210
  • ON YOUR KNEES,
  • 00:16:40.210 --> 00:16:41.280
  • ON YOUR FACE BEFORE HIM.
  • 00:16:41.280 --> 00:16:43.040
  • I LOVE THAT!
  • 00:16:43.040 --> 00:16:44.060
  • WHAT WOULD YOU SAY
  • 00:16:44.060 --> 00:16:45.100
  • TO SOMEBODY WHO THINKS
  • 00:16:45.100 --> 00:16:46.120
  • THAT WELL, I'M DOING
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:47.160
  • PRETTY WELL WITH MOST THINGS
  • 00:16:47.160 --> 00:16:48.200
  • BUT THE THING I'M ACTUALLY
  • 00:16:48.200 --> 00:16:49.220
  • AM AFRAID OF IS DEATH.
  • 00:16:49.220 --> 00:16:50.220
  • Stormie: OH,
  • 00:16:51.260 --> 00:16:53.000
  • I USED TO HAVE THAT TOO.
  • 00:16:53.000 --> 00:16:54.050
  • I USED TO BE,
  • 00:16:54.050 --> 00:16:55.100
  • WHEN I WAS A NEW BELIEVER
  • 00:16:55.100 --> 00:16:56.160
  • AND I WAS COMING
  • 00:16:56.160 --> 00:16:57.210
  • THAT I WAS LIVING.
  • 00:16:58.270 --> 00:17:00.030
  • BUT AS I GOT CLOSER
  • 00:17:00.030 --> 00:17:01.130
  • AND CLOSER TO THE LORD,
  • 00:17:01.130 --> 00:17:03.290
  • I BEGAN TO SEE
  • 00:17:03.290 --> 00:17:05.110
  • EVERYTHING IN HIS WORD
  • 00:17:05.110 --> 00:17:06.140
  • ABOUT WHAT HEAVEN IS LIKE
  • 00:17:06.140 --> 00:17:07.160
  • AND WHAT THAT TRANSITION
  • 00:17:07.160 --> 00:17:08.230
  • IS LIKE.
  • 00:17:09.030 --> 00:17:12.030
  • TO SPEAK TO YOU,
  • 00:17:14.100 --> 00:17:15.180
  • AND JUST TRUSTING HIS SPIRIT
  • 00:17:15.180 --> 00:17:16.290
  • TO SPEAK TO YOU
  • 00:17:16.290 --> 00:17:18.040
  • ABOUT THAT TOO BECAUSE
  • 00:17:18.040 --> 00:17:19.090
  • HE IS GOING TO BE THERE.
  • 00:17:19.090 --> 00:17:20.200
  • GOING TO SEND HIS ANGELS
  • 00:17:22.020 --> 00:17:23.050
  • OR HE'S GOING TO BE THERE
  • 00:17:23.050 --> 00:17:24.090
  • IN PERSON.
  • 00:17:24.090 --> 00:17:25.120
  • IT WILL DEPEND
  • 00:17:25.120 --> 00:17:26.170
  • ON HOW BUSY HE IS.
  • 00:17:26.170 --> 00:17:27.230
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:17:27.230 --> 00:17:28.280
  • Sheila: IT IS A WIN/WIN
  • 00:17:28.280 --> 00:17:30.050
  • EITHER WAY!
  • 00:17:30.050 --> 00:17:31.100
  • Stormie: EXACTLY!
  • 00:17:31.100 --> 00:17:32.150
  • IT'S A TRANSITION
  • 00:17:32.150 --> 00:17:33.200
  • THAT IS GOING TO BE PEACEFUL.
  • 00:17:33.200 --> 00:17:34.260
  • AND ACTUALLY,
  • 00:17:34.260 --> 00:17:36.000
  • YOU COULD PRAY FOR THAT TOO.
  • 00:17:36.000 --> 00:17:37.170
  • YOU CAN SAY, "GOD, I WANT
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:39.140
  • MY DEATH TO BE PEACEFUL.
  • 00:17:39.140 --> 00:17:41.070
  • I DON'T WANT IT TO BE
  • 00:17:41.070 --> 00:17:42.170
  • A HORRIFYING, GUT-WRENCHING,
  • 00:17:42.170 --> 00:17:43.190
  • MISERABLE, HORRIBLE THING.
  • 00:17:43.190 --> 00:17:45.130
  • LET ME HAVE
  • 00:17:45.130 --> 00:17:46.200
  • A PEACEFUL TRANSITION TO YOU."
  • 00:17:46.200 --> 00:17:48.070
  • WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE?
  • 00:17:48.070 --> 00:17:49.120
  • YOU KNOW?
  • 00:17:49.120 --> 00:17:51.000
  • I DON'T KNOW YET.
  • 00:17:51.000 --> 00:17:52.150
  • IF THAT WORKED,
  • 00:17:52.150 --> 00:17:53.190
  • BY PRAYING THAT,
  • 00:17:53.190 --> 00:17:54.240
  • BUT I THINK IT WILL.
  • 00:17:54.240 --> 00:17:56.000
  • AND I'VE SEEN PEOPLE
  • 00:17:56.000 --> 00:17:57.060
  • WHO HAD PEACEFUL DEATHS
  • 00:17:57.060 --> 00:17:58.200
  • AND THEY HAVE SEEN SOMETHING.
  • 00:17:58.200 --> 00:18:01.190
  • ONE LADY HAD HER EYES CLOSED,
  • 00:18:03.150 --> 00:18:06.140
  • EYES CLOSED
  • 00:18:06.140 --> 00:18:08.010
  • AND ALMOST LIKE IN A COMA
  • 00:18:08.010 --> 00:18:09.210
  • AND SHE HAD
  • 00:18:11.170 --> 00:18:12.240
  • THIS GREAT SMILE LIKE, "AH!"
  • 00:18:13.150 --> 00:18:16.150
  • AND THEN SHE DIED.
  • 00:18:16.150 --> 00:18:17.240
  • AND I KNOW SHE SAW SOMETHING
  • 00:18:17.240 --> 00:18:19.060
  • REALLY GREAT!
  • 00:18:19.060 --> 00:18:20.180
  • I'VE HEARD THAT
  • 00:18:20.180 --> 00:18:21.230
  • A LOT OF TIMES.
  • 00:18:21.230 --> 00:18:23.000
  • SO SOMETHING GREAT
  • 00:18:23.000 --> 00:18:24.050
  • IS GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:18:24.050 --> 00:18:25.140
  • Sheila: I BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:18:25.140 --> 00:18:26.210
  • I HAD A LETTER FROM A VIEWER
  • 00:18:26.210 --> 00:18:27.270
  • WHO SAID THAT HER HUSBAND,
  • 00:18:27.270 --> 00:18:28.290
  • LIKE THAT HAD NOT BEEN
  • 00:18:28.290 --> 00:18:30.060
  • COMMUNICATIVE FOR SOME TIME
  • 00:18:30.060 --> 00:18:31.140
  • AND IN THE LAST MOMENTS
  • 00:18:31.140 --> 00:18:32.210
  • HE OPENED HIS EYES
  • 00:18:32.210 --> 00:18:33.240
  • BUT HE SAID, "YOU CAME!"
  • 00:18:33.240 --> 00:18:35.180
  • Stormie: YES!
  • 00:18:35.180 --> 00:18:36.200
  • OH, I LOVE THAT!
  • 00:18:36.200 --> 00:18:37.240
  • I LOVE THAT!
  • 00:18:37.240 --> 00:18:38.250
  • Sheila: ISN'T THAT BEAUTIFUL?
  • 00:18:38.250 --> 00:18:39.250
  • Stormie: YES!
  • 00:18:39.250 --> 00:18:41.000
  • MY UNCLE JACK DIED RECENTLY
  • 00:18:41.000 --> 00:18:42.020
  • AND MY AUNT SAID, SHE SAID,
  • 00:18:42.020 --> 00:18:44.280
  • HE WAS BASICALLY COMATOSE
  • 00:18:45.170 --> 00:18:48.170
  • AND THEN HE DID
  • 00:18:48.170 --> 00:18:49.210
  • THE SAME THING.
  • 00:18:49.210 --> 00:18:50.230
  • HE OPENED HIS EYES
  • 00:18:50.230 --> 00:18:51.250
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:18:51.250 --> 00:18:53.050
  • "LOOK AT ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE!
  • 00:18:53.050 --> 00:18:55.130
  • AND SOME OF THEM ARE ANGELS,"
  • 00:18:55.130 --> 00:18:56.240
  • HE SAID.
  • 00:18:56.240 --> 00:18:58.110
  • AND THEN HE DIED.
  • 00:18:58.110 --> 00:19:00.020
  • THIS IS JUST RECENTLY.
  • 00:19:00.020 --> 00:19:01.150
  • I THINK, OH,
  • 00:19:01.150 --> 00:19:03.230
  • THERE'S SOME GOOD THINGS
  • 00:19:03.230 --> 00:19:05.000
  • GOING TO BE HAPPENING.
  • 00:19:05.000 --> 00:19:06.030
  • NOT TO FEAR IT.
  • 00:19:06.030 --> 00:19:07.070
  • NOT TO FEAR IT.
  • 00:19:07.070 --> 00:19:08.110
  • HE IS GOING TO BE THERE.
  • 00:19:08.110 --> 00:19:09.130
  • TO BE ABSENT FROM THE BODY
  • 00:19:09.130 --> 00:19:10.160
  • IS TO BE WITH THE LORD.
  • 00:19:10.160 --> 00:19:11.230
  • THAT'S WHAT THE --
  • 00:19:11.230 --> 00:19:12.290
  • YES! ME TOO.
  • 00:19:12.290 --> 00:19:14.110
  • AND I'M THINKING,
  • 00:19:14.110 --> 00:19:16.140
  • WE'RE DREADING
  • 00:19:16.140 --> 00:19:17.240
  • THIS DEATH THING
  • 00:19:17.240 --> 00:19:19.130
  • BUT HE'S GOT SOMETHING GOOD
  • 00:19:19.130 --> 00:19:20.220
  • FOR US!
  • 00:19:20.220 --> 00:19:21.280
  • SO WE DON'T HAVE TO FEAR IT.
  • 00:19:21.280 --> 00:19:23.120
  • Sheila: I'M GOING TO TELL YOU
  • 00:19:23.120 --> 00:19:24.220
  • HOW YOU CAN GET A COPY
  • 00:19:24.220 --> 00:19:25.280
  • OF THE POWER
  • 00:19:25.280 --> 00:19:27.110
  • OF PRAYING THROUGH FEAR .
  • 00:19:27.110 --> 00:19:28.230
  • A FANTASTIC BOOK!
  • 00:19:28.230 --> 00:19:29.290
  • IT WILL MAKE A HUGE,
  • 00:19:29.290 --> 00:19:31.060
  • HUGE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:19:31.060 --> 00:19:32.140
  • I RECENTLY HAD A TRIP
