Hey, Darling Things!
I bet I don’t have to tell you the one big thing that is on my mind this week. No weekend event on my annual calendar looms any larger in my mind than a Living Proof Live Simulcast. It stays on my radar from the time the LifeWay event team tells me it’s scheduled until the last song of the final session. At this point, I’m thinking about it every waking moment, praying, studying, and believing God to invade every single host site and every single screen. Please pray with me to that end. Only Jesus can do what we want to see done. Only Jesus can make it worth the time and effort for anyone to attend.
As I picture our “class” out there on the other side of that screen this coming Saturday, I have great comfort, joy, and even a unique peace in imagining those of you from this community who may be among them. Out of His great mercy and purpose, God fashioned my heart to love women – of all sorts of ages, sorts, denominations, backgrounds, colors, vocations – and I am graced immeasurably to get to serve a single one. You, however, are the closest community I have out in the public sector and a tremendous source of joy to me. I would love to get a general estimate of how many of you Siestas will be participating in the simulcast and the location of your participation, whether in a group or solo right in front of your computer screen. [For individual/small group registration, Lifeway can set you up here.]
I think you also might love knowing that information on one another. You may have a Siesta tuning in only 15 minutes from you and you could both sit in front of the same screen or engage and interact via text, Twitter, or Facebook. It’s a blast just to know who’s out there and exactly where and it might make some of you who are going solo feel more connected throughout the day.
SO, let’s take a roll call! And let’s give our information in this order so that the cities where we are attending will appear first:
City and State, Name, whether in a Group or going Solo, and, if with a group, Where. (Not the address, of course, especially if it’s a private location. Just the name of the church or public place or if it’s your friend’s home, just say that much.)
Mine would look like this:
Charleston, West Virginia (the host site where it will be taped live), Beth Moore, group, Charleston Civic Center.
After you sign in, please pray for us. Please pray for many lost women to attend and for every single one of them to be FOUND in Christ. With the Holy Spirit’s infiltration, we will give a clear presentation of the Gospel. Pray for God to also perform miraculous works of deliverance and for the entire paradigm of faith to shift for those in desperate need of Truth. Pray for every person in attendance to hear dramatically and clearly from God. PRAY BIG.
My coworkers each prayed Scripture over me Monday at our staff meeting and gave me their prayers on index cards or pieces of paper. I have each one in my notebook and I was profusely built up in my spirit and in my faith over them. Sabrina prayed out of Psalm 85 (Vv.4-13) and the words seemed so perfectly suited for our event on Saturday that I thought I’d add them into this post for your intercession. I wonder if you would agree with us in prayer that God would do exactly what these verses request and MORE!
Restore us again, O God of our salvation…revive us again,
that Your people may rejoice in You.
Show us Your steadfast love, O LORD,
and grant us Your salvation.
Let me hear what God the LORD will speak,
for He will speak peace to His people, to His saints;
but let them not turn back to folly.
Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him,
that glory may dwell in our land.
Steadfast love and faithfulness meet;
righteousness and peace kiss each other.
Faithfulness springs up from the ground,
and righteousness looks down from the sky.
Yes, the LORD will give what is good,
and our land will yield its increase.
Righteousness will go before Him
and make His footsteps a way. (ESV)
Isn’t that powerful? I think God would be so pleased for us to come around that segment of Scripture as diverse people of unified mind, turning it into prayer for His great glory to be revealed this coming Saturday.
You, Sisters, are treasures to me. My walk with Jesus would not be the same had you not come along.
