Benny Hinn: Pastor Jack Hayford Saved My Life

Pastor Jack Hayford presided over the remarriage of Benny and Suzanne Hinn earlier this year. But fewer know how much Hayford helped the Hinns after their marriage fell apart.

Hinn doesn’t mince words: “Jack Hayford saved my life. He saved my life, no doubt. I love that man with depth. I mean, I love him, like, beyond words. Pastor Jack saved my life. I can actually say that with absolute honestly. He not only saved my life; he saved Suzanne's life and saved our marriage. Pastor Jack Hayford is the loveliest, sweetest man. I really, really, truly, big-time love him.”

Hinn told Charisma News how angry he was when he went to visit Hayford, about once a month. He was angry with his ex-wife, angry with the situation—just angry. But Hinn says, “he loved on me—and that’s what I think began to break me. He was not condemning me. He was loving me.”

During the restoration process, Hayford told Hinn to take his ex-wife to a movie.

“I said, ‘OK, Pastor, which movie?’ He said, "Les Miserables. You take her and spend time with her." And I said, "OK." So we did. Man, they sang every line in that movie. They sang and sang and sang. It's a beautiful story,” Hinn says.

“But since we've been remarried, I've watched at least 20 movies with her alone. I've spent more time with her probably in the last few months than I did in 30 years. We watch movies together at home, and we hold each other. She'll say to me, ‘Why didn't you do this when we were married?’ I say, ‘I don't know’.”
