Message Preparation

Hi friends. Mom and I have been sending text messages back and forth for the last few minutes. She’s having to prepare four messages today to get ready for tonight’s and tomorrow morning’s sessions. I don’t know how she does it! Only the Lord! If you wouldn’t mind, would you lift up this preparation time to the Lord?

After these sessions, she will stay in New Orleans and film intros and outros until Monday. Looking at it that way, she is about halfway through. I’m sure she could really use a big gust of the Spirit’s wind to carry her on. Thanks for investing in this taping with your prayers, sisters!
We love you,

    I’m home for lunch and got online for a few minutes. I got on my knees to pray after I read the request. You’re right…we don’t know how she does it, except through God giving her wisdom and strength. She amazes me for sure. She rarely even looks at her notes!
    I appreciate her so much!
    “God, bless Beth in a very special way today. Pour out Your favor on her in ways that are more than we could even ask or think!!!” Amen!

    Praying for a fresh breeze to sustain her through…

    I think she’ll be glad to get home and hopefully enjoy some rest and pampering from “Supperman”…

    I did Breaking Free ~10 years ago, but I want to see the new sessions when they are released.

    Blessed to be able to lift her and the whole crew up in prayer! It is blowing in cold weather here, but praying for a warm blowing in of the Holy Spirit like she has never felt before in New Orleans.

    Beth – keep running – the prize is just ahead.

    “Sun! Stand still!” Come, Lord Jesus… fill Beth to overflowing with your Spirit, your wisdom, your joy, your love, your insight, your power, your strength, your word, your encouragement. Part the sea that stands before her these next few days. Stretch out your powerful right hand to uphold her and equip her. Remind her that she is competently competent in you. Multiply her efforts a hundred-fold and more!!! Bind the enemy in every way. Holy Spirit, pour in and over Beth and the entire team; pour through her and land on all the women (and men!) that will fill that sanctuary this evening and tomorrow morning; grant her words and wisdom and insight that will extend blessing and freedom by your power and goodness for years to come through DVDs and member books. Jesus died that we might be free! It was for freedom that Christ set us free! Heavenly Father, equip, empower, and use Beth this weekend to set your people free!

    Beth, I read these verses from Ezekial this morning and couldn’t help but think of you and the work and ministry you’re doing today (I just love all the WILL-s!):

    Ezekial 34:11-16a and Ezekial 36:25-29… There’s a lot there, but in short, thus “declares the Lord God. I will seek the lost and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak… I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh… you shall be my people, and I will be your God.”

    May it be. Blessings and love and prayer.

    Melissa May says:

    Oh Jesus, You alone know how much strength our sweet siesta Beth needs right now and You alone know how beyond-words much your children need to hear what You’re going to speak through her. So PLEASE pour out your power in and through her. Meet her needs and meet ours through Your word as she proclaims it. Protect and sustain her and use her Lord. Keep using her! Carry her through and remind us to keep praying for her. In Your Powerful, Faithful, Mighty Name Jesus, amen!!!

    I don’t know how she does it either. It is obviously the Lord working through her. I live near Precpet Ministries and see Kay Arthur run a round like that. She has so much on her plate and never slows down. I am telling you she does circles around me. Circles. It inspires me so much that I can’t help but pray to the Lord to give me strength like that. It is a grace poured out so these precious, godly women can serve, as the Bible says, “Serve with the strength that is given to you”. I am praying that the Lord will continue to pour out His stregth on Beth so that she can continue to serve with power from on High.

    Thank you for all that you pour out as well Amanda. Thank you for all the times you’ve overlooked offense (offenses that come when working with people), thanks for all the times you’ve sacrificed so we could have, thanks for all the times you have prayed for us, believed in us and invested in us. We love you and know that your mother is a stronger woman with her two daughters and son in law laboring with her shoulder to shoulder.

    Father, in the name of Jesus, for Your glory, I pray that Your Spirit would guide and bless Beth and everyone involved in preparation of the message YOU want spoken! Thank you for their service, and thank You for being a God who reigns! In the precious, powerful name of Jesus I pray,

    I do have one funny before I get serious: when I saw this post I thought it said MASSAGE preparation! I was like… huh?

    But seriously, we will be lifting her up! We are New Orleanians, and it makes me happy to know that Beth and co. are here and the Spirit is moving!!!! PRAISE!

    Just yesterday in my “Breaking Free” study, we watched the session in which Beth talks about God pouring out His Spirit to us in the end days (Acts 2:17). I will be praying that God will pour out His Spirit upon Beth as she prepares these final messages!

    On a different note…if Beth is in New Orleans through the weekend, I guess she’s gonna miss Nutcracker Market in Houston. Ya’ll should make a roadtrip to Austin the weekend of the 21st through the 23rd and come to A Christmas Affair! We’d love to have you!

    Breathe afresh upon Beth and this crew. Let them rest at night and rest in You. Guide them as only You can Lord Jesus. Bring fresh HOLY ANOINTING UPON THIS ENDEAVOR. For Your glory and honor Lord Jesus……Amen.

    Only You have Beth’s days ordered, only You can be her strength. Father keep her close, help her not to see this situation with Earthly eyes, but eyes filled with Faith. Don’t let Satan have that battle LORD. You “don’t need weapons to rescue your people. It is your battle not ours and you will give the victory to us.”

    Give her victory this day Lord. She KNOWS desperate, she has made that clear. Use this desperation to ride in on your horse and save the day. Spirit, I pray you have your way. Burn the truth, whether you change the plan, or require her to leave all her preparation at the hotel room. May she trust your plan and not need hers to be successful.

    There is no doubt LORD, the soil of her heart has been fertile and is producing 100 fold. To you be the glory LORD!

    BEBE says:

    Continuing to pray for you Beth and all associated with the tapings – I had no ideas that they were so involved!!! I pray God’s special annointing on you mentally, physically and spiritually to give you more of HIM. He said “call on Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jer. 33:3)May he pour out His favor on you in a really BIG way!!!
    Amanda, thanks for keeping us in the loop and giving us the privilege of lifting Beth!

    Breaking Free is sooooo needed in this world. People are changed by "this" study, Father.

    Your child needs you. Meet her.
    We love you God.

    I’m praying for a strong gust of Holy Spirit power to breeze through in a fresh new vibrant way! God bless you amazingly as you have blessed my heart through your teaching of the Word!

    As a praise to God as only He could have done this, the warden at Perryville Prison in AZ has approved the Breaking Free study for a study which went from 25 women to 65 women! We just finished raising all the money this Monday to purchase the workbooks so the study will in the next couple of week! Isn’t that too wonderful? Only God could have caused a prison warden to approve “Breaking Free.”

    Is anyone else out there guilty of scanning over the blog topics while paying bills ect? I did that I out of the corner of my eye, instead of seeing Message Preparation I saw Melissa’s Pregnant. I was all… WHAT! So then I stopped and actually read what it said and laughed myself silly.

    I will definitely be in prayer for the taping sessions. (I will also be going to get my eyes checked soon)

    Praying specificially: here’s my “top 5” ๐Ÿ™‚
    1. God’s presence and guidance on what exactly to say and when: there would be no extra need for energy to be expended on this…it would be VERY CLEAR
    2. God’s refreshement and rest between tapings that would be mulitplied many times over to supply all the energy needed to keep going STRONG!
    3. God’s protection from the enemy, so that there would be no doubts, no anxiety/second-guessing and no weariness that causes depression or sadness.
    4. The arms of God wrapped around Beth and the crew: there would no mistaking that He is loving and leading them through this taping!
    5. F-U-N! That many laughs, giggles and guffaws would make the moments light and joyeous!

    I’ll be praying for you all weekend Beth. This verse comes to mind for you.

    “The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights.” Habakkuk 3:19

    I’ll pray too that you are sleeping well!!!
