Pastor Chris Durso on TBN’s Praise the Lord: Testimonies of Other People’s Miracles Will Increase Your Faith For God’s Miracle Power in Your Life

Chris Durso is pastor at Misfit NYC, the youth ministry of Christ Tabernacle in Queens, NY. Recently Chris was a guest on Trinity Broadcasting Network’s popular Praise the Lord ministry and talk show, where he related an amazing story about the healing of his son from a rare and deadly blood disease. And in telling his son’s story Chris emphasized that hearing the testimony of others — of healings, financial turnarounds, and other miracles — will spur our own faith to believe God.

“A few years ago my son Dylan got deathly sick,” Chris recalled. “He had these bruises all over his face and body, and we had no idea where they came from. We rushed him to the hospital to find out that he had a rare blood disease called ITP.”

Noting that a healthy person’s blood platelets are at 250,000 to 350,000, he said that Dylan’s were at 18,000, and over the course of the next two days they fell dramatically to just 3,000.

Doctors warned Chris and his wife that their son could have leukemia, and discussed a possible spinal tap and even removing their son’s spleen.

At that moment, said Chris, his church was praying and pleading the blood of Jesus over his son. “I got a call from a friend who put me on the phone with another pastor, who told me, ‘Chris, I want you to know that just a few months ago I was with a pastor dealing with the same situation, and when I prayed over his son, his son was healed the very next day. And I am praying and declaring that your son will be healed by 10 o’clock tomorrow morning.’”

Chris recalled that after the prayer he and his wife went to the hospital, where they stayed all night by their son’s side. “And we were awakened the next morning by the doctor screaming, ‘He’s healed! He’s healed!’”

He went on to recall that “our son’s platelets improved dramatically overnight, and it absolutely did not make sense. They even said, ‘It was whatever you did, because our medicine did not work.’”

Later Chris connected with the pastor who had prayed with him over the phone. “And when I thanked him for praying, I asked him why he had shared the story of the other boy who had been healed. And he told me, ‘Chris, we have to understand that the blessing of God resides on the ark of the testimony. In other words, because you heard that someone else got healed, it spurred your faith to believe for your son’s healing. So if God did it before you now believe that God can do it again.’”

Explained Chris: “So when you hear someone else’s testimony, that’s not just somebody’s celebration. That is the thing that is about to release your miracle.”

Watch this energizing and deeply inspirational video as Pastor Chris Durso explains how the testimonies of other people’s miracles are meant to be catalysts to increase your faith for God’s powerful move in your own need.

London Pastors Paul and Jo Naughton on TBN’s Praise the Lord: Excellence Should Mark the Work of Those Serving the King of Kings

Before leading the vibrant multicultural Harvest Church in London, Pastors Paul and Jo Naughton worked in the marketplace, Paul as a successful banker and Jo as a public relations director for one of Prince Charles’ charities.

Recently on Trinity Broadcasting Network’s Praise the Lord, the Naughtons spoke about the need for excellence in the church. “In the church we often think that it’s okay to just show up,” said Jo, “but when you’re working with a prince — just an earthly prince — you have to follow protocol. You can’t show up late, or be casual in your approach.”

She added that if we follow such protocols with an earthly prince, how much more should we be committed to excellence in how we approach and behave before God. “It was such a privilege to work for a human prince,” she said, “but what an honor to be promoted to work for the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.”

That sort of attitude should mark all we do as God’s children. Watch this inspiring and challenging TBN video clip.

Laurie Crouch Talks About the Power Giving Has to Impact Lives for Eternity

Do you ever wonder if your giving really has the impact you had hoped it would? Do you sometimes feel that when you sow a gift into the work of the Gospel, it simply gets sucked into a huge and impersonal “machine” and really has no influence on anyone in particular?

Watch this impassioned and very personal recollection from TBN’s Laurie Crouch, as she recounts how her grandparents faithfully supported TBN for years — and how their simple gift — along with the gifts of countless other friends and partners of the network — continue to “impact individuals all over the world for the kingdom.”

Lee Strobel Shares His Powerful Testimony on TBN’s Praise the Lord

Over the past twenty-plus years Lee Strobel has gained a reputation as one of the Church’s most thorough and engaging Christian apologists. Such books by Strobel as “The Case for Christ” and “The Case for Faith” have been responsible for helping lead countless individuals to faith in Chris.

But on a recent edition of Trinity Broadcasting Network’s “Praise the Lord” ministry and talk show, Lee related that he himself was once an atheist, and it took an encounter with the truth of God’s Word to change his heart.

Watch this incredible testimony, with TBN’s Matthew Crouch and Laurie Crouch, as Lee relates how his wife’s salvation — and her transformed lifestyle — helped him to begin seeking out the truth about Jesus.
