My Prayer Requests for the STRONGER Taping

Dear praying friends,

Tonight we begin taping  my new bible study, STONGER here in Nashville. There will be two nights with an audience then Thursday and Friday for the extras. Will you pray with me for:

  • My dear LifeWay team and production crew. They are all friends who I have worked with previously. I don’t know a more selfless group of people who truly work tirelessly for the name of Christ. They are also the best anywhere. We’re taping this week in the same room Beth Moore taped the James bible study last year. God has already worked mightily in that room. Humbled.
  • All the ladies traveling here for these two nights. Safety. Care for their loved ones. And most of all, fresh revelation and encouragement for their souls. The gospel is the center-piece of everything I’m doing here. May their hearts come awake to it’s power, for the very first time or afresh.
  • My sweet family. I miss them. Scott is traveling here tomorrow night. My daddy and his parents are taking care of everyone while he comes.
  • My final study preparations today and tomorrow morning. I have been studying like a seminarian in final exams and truly loving every single minute. I am certain that I have over studied, so I’m stilling asking God what and what not to include.
  • The teaching – I can retake a line if I have totally flubbed, but for the most part, I am supposed to be the one-shot wonder. In the past, God comes on me like Gomer Pyle. Can’t half talk until I stand up and then what comes out is like singing. I would be so greatful to have him lay His sweet anointing on me yet again
  • My session content:

1. Becoming the traveling companion of God. Psalm 84 – as most of you know, God has been working this passage out for me for almost a year. It lays the foundation of these sessions. We are pilgrims. The journey toward eternity. For this session I will unfold the passage then camp on verse 5 – “Blessed (stronger) are those whose strength is in you.” All the strength we will ever need for this life is contained in the fullness of God. Forward looking from the passage – God pours the fullness of His deity in Christ (Col 1:19). We are IN HIM, when we come to believe the good news. I’ll present the gospel tonight, first session. And again in every session.

2. Traveling IN HIM. Psalm 84:5 – Picking back up verse 5, we move mostly to Colossians to consider the riches of being IN HIM. Not just for salvation or eternity, but for the journey (our sanctification). Stayed up last night making hand-outs with every IN HIM truth I could find. 3 pages that made me cry like a baby over God’s goodness to us.

3. Traveling in power and joy. The Holy Spirit is Christ’s full representative in us. His work in our daily lives. Our cooperation to “work out our salvation” and the joyful fruit of obedience. Several NT passages here, including 1 Thess 5:16. Be joyful always.

 4. Grace for the Traveler – This is a message I gave last year at Beautiful Life about Baca. Psalm 84:5-7

5. The passionate Traveler – A message I have given many times this year. Full of story and strong strong teaching. Hebrews 12:1

 6. Going home – Hebrews 12:2 and 2 Timothy 4  . . . Paul has run the good race, fought the good fight. I have also taught this many times and never once gotten through the final story without choking on my tears. It’s especially tender to me this morning as I think of mama going home just 2 months ago.

  • me personally – I have spent a good bit of these study days crying my eyes out, but in the best possible way. My heart is so tender and awake to HIS word that I weep and weep over God’s truth and goodness. BUT, it’s just not going to help anybody if I do that at the filming. I’m asking God to hold back the river so that I can speak audible words.

Thank you sweet friends. I am hiding myself in your prayers. It is such a privilege to love you all.

With gratefulness, Oh hallelujah, I am IN HIM and He is stronger than everything,

Angela

    Greetings Angela! I saw you on Life Today w/James & Betty. What wonderful & anointed couple of the Almighty God! As I scrolled thru the guide on the TV yesterday Aug 18th, 2014, I was urged to stop on Life Today just to see what guest would be inspiring for the world to see. Was I ever so grateful! You my precious & anointed sister in Christ stirred up the opening of my heart, ears and eyes: that so needed refreshing. How I resonated with your every articulated so carefully designed words by our Abba Father. After the session was over, I when to the kitchen to refill my cup-of-java. However, I couldn’t drink it cause the Spirit of the Lord was leading me to enter into HIS gates w/prayer and that, my precious friend lead into a deeper and “stronger” river crying, cleansing of the presence of God in me. I spoke in the heavenly language from the depth of my heart. Time didn’t matter anymore…..the presence of my Abba Father was so real. I know HE is always there….HE is my strength and through my weakness He is “stronger”. I praise God for choosing you as His vessel for His kingdom! Greater Blessings to you, your ministry and the great journeys ahead!
    In Christ,
    Sandra

    Would love for you to tape your Bible Studies in NC sometime, so we could be there to support you. Hard to get to Nashville….

    Dear Angela, I listened to your Weary and Worn Out on the LifeWay Women Devotions. It really hit me because that is exactly how I feel. I have a wonderful husband and three great boys. But right now, I am dealing with so much stress. First, my oldest son, who is intellectual disabled has been denied SSI, so now I have to find attorney to help us fight for him. I have a good job, but am extremely frustrated with my boss and coworker, they are just there to collect their paycheck, so it is very hard to do my job. My father was diagonised with terminal cancer 3 years ago, he has lost 40 pounds in about 4 months. My mom is a hoarder and wants me to come help go throught stuff for the ompteen time. My husband, got laid off last Friday. So yes, I am worn out.

    Psalm 119:114 (ESV)
    114 You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word.

    Angela,
    I am so excited for what you are about to do and know this week is covered with the prayers of the saints and the anointing of God. Just reading your outline was encouraging and life giving all by itself. The above verse reminds us that the Lord is your hiding place, he will cover you, take care of you and all that you are doing this week.
    He is your shield and has “your back” from all attacks and is your protection. I am fairly confident that your hope is in his word. Therefore, it is he who will accomplish all that is to be said, done and received through this taping. Whew, the outcome is his and so is the fruit.

    Praise God, I hope it is a blast and I can’t wait to come and see the new material in Greensboro this year.

    In his grace,

    Evette

    Sweet Lady praying for you now.

    Dear Lord please give your servant Angela a peace about the work she is about to begin for your kingdom. Let her feel your Spirit in new and powerful ways so the truth of your message can be shared with those who need it. Place a hedge of protection around her and all those participating. Amen.

    BTW-The material looks incredible, can’t wait go through it with my ladies.
