Oh, Sisters, I longed for you to see these 1000 darling women that God allowed us the privilege to host at Passion 2012. Meeting with them was a huge highlight for our staff. We greeted them, heard from several of them regarding how we could pray for them, had a very brief Q&A, then prayed over them. Oh, and then I hugged as many as time would allow and I am not kidding when I say that it was at least a hundred. I wish so much I could have gotten my arms around all 1000. I hope some of them will find their way to this post and leave a comment to let us know specifically how God revealed Himself to them and what major truth they took home with them. Please don’t stop praying for them. By now, they have already been tremendously challenged by their worlds and by the enemy of their souls. Pray for them to stand firm. Let’s be good big sisters to them.

Behold the fruit of your prayers:



This is a quick picture from the very opening of Passion Monday night. My heart felt like it was beating as loud as the dozen drums on that stage. I didn’t take many pictures during the sessions because I didn’t want to be distracted and miss God. I wanted to worship and to receive a word myself! I know you get that.


Last one in case you’re totally over it. Grin. This is my first encounter with Christine Caine (from Australia, look into her organization “A21.”). She was so hilarious and so full of life as we met and chatted together back in the Green Room. I liked her instantly. She told me that she bought this hat for $10 at the airport because her hair was dirty. Yep. I loved her.


Then her session just about blew a hole through my chest. She called all of us to DO SOMETHING NOW about the biggest epidemic of slavery to ever hit the globe: 27 million slaves around the world right this minute. And many of our cities are housing them. Mine included, God help and forgive us.  It’s deplorable and as Passion 2012 voiced over and over again: indifference is not an option. Those kids raised over 3 million dollars to fight this epidemic. Astounding. CNN even told the story. Google it and watch it. The Name of Jesus comes up blatantly in it. If you get the chance, also watch Christine’s session on the official Passion 2012 website as soon as they’re airing it.

I was so ruined by the session that I already have a meeting set in stone, God willing, so that I can see what God would have me do here in Houston. Not coincidentally, on January 1st of this year (prior to the Passion event or ever meeting Christine or hearing about these shocking statistics) God gave me Micah 6:8 to claim for 2012 through that morning’s sermon at my church. I even wrote it on the very front of my journal (all still before I ever got to Passion) and instead of it writing it word-for-word as it is stated in my Bible, I personalized it on the front of my journal like this:

“He has told you, Beth, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice and to love kindness (or mercy in many of your translations) and to walk humbly with your God?”

When I was so stricken by the statistics and then the session, I got out my new journal in my hotel room to start asking God in ink what He wanted me to do. And there I saw the verse I’d written on the front of it. I was taken aback. I knew it was no accident. SO, I am open to His leadership and, as I know more, I will share more. One thing is for sure. I’m not going to sit back and do nothing.

I took all of you with me to Passion 2012 on my heart. Louie announced before closing the event that it will be back in the Georgia Dome next January. PASSION 2013!!!!! Look for us to start talking about it again mid-Fall of this year.

After asking for so much involvement from you, I didn’t want to leave you without an update! Thank you so much for all your prayers and for such support. Here’s the last thing I have to say. Anybody who thinks that the horizon looks terribly bleak for the church has not been to Passion. I do not know what the future holds for our nations and our governments but, even out of ashes, God can raise up a gorgeous Bride. She looked stunning on the faces of 44,000 young people this week.

I love you.

    Yes I am coming this weekend and I can’t wait. At first I wasn’t sure if i would be able to come but thankfully God worked it out. A friend and I will be leaving Baton Rouge after we drop off our daughters at school. Memorizing the scriptures has been very challenging for me. Some of it is my lack of studying but I have also had some health issues this past year that made thinking clearly very difficult. After finding out my thyroid wasn’t working properly some things began to make sense. I am now on Synthroid and things are so much better. My light is back on and what a relief that is. Now matter how much I prayed, read my Bible, or listended to christian music I couldn’t put my light on. It was so beyond me and I felt totally out of control. It was a very scarey time for me. I am not one who normally gets depressed but I sunk so far down in a pit I was afraid I might not find my way out. For me Synthroid is a miracle medicine. More women need to have their blood work done. Hypothyroid is so common and it can make you feel dead inside. Which is what it did to me. Some of my scriptures kept me sane and I clung to them. Would shout them out when I couldn’t do anything else. Thanks for starting this and helping me make it through the darkess season of my adult life. God bless you and your family Beth. I love your studies and am currently leading the new James study at my church in Baton Rouge. We have a fabulous group of ladies. We meet on Thursday mornings. It is my favorite day of the week. Of course I love the Sabbath We just have such a sweet group on Thursdays it makes my week. Please keep writing Beth. I have no intention of not studying it is my life line. God’s word has healed me, delivered me and set me free. Yea Jesus!

    The “Women of Strength” Bible study in Amarillo, Texas want to thank Beth Moore for all she does through her Living Proof ministry, her love for women and witness for the Lord.
    We have done many of Beth’s studies and currently doing the James study. Thank you for sharing your talents and love for the Lord with other women.
    May the Lord continue his annointing on Beth and her family. Thank you! Thank you!

    Beth!! I just wrote you a letter that is going out to your correspondant’s assistant on Monday!! I am so happy about the way God is using to you to speak for the Body of Christ coming together in love to bring the world to Jesus, without putting up walls that say another denomination cannot be trusted to be fruitful the same way mine can… It is our PASSION to see our world know the love of Jesus, and we know every church that wants to be a honest to goodness true follower of Christ regardless of how stretching it may be WILL be part of seeing that love realized!!! so pumped to see that happen with, God willing, hundreds of believers from different denominations taking back ground in our hometown… one of the nation’s top for poverty and violence. Thanks for speaking for unity!!
