The Friday (Well . . . Saturday) Five - 09/27/19

  1. Good morning from the Indianapolis Convention Center! This might be my favorite post of the year because it is coming to you after an incredible first day of Revive '19! Seriously, y’all—if you haven’t tuned in to the livestream, stop what you’re doing, grab a cup of coffee, and tune in right now so you don’t miss a second of these sessions. God is at work in the lives of thousands of women in this room and around the world, and you are invited to be a part! 
  1. Have you heard about the Praying Men? During the conference, a group of men gather in a room to pray over every prayer request card that is submitted during the conference. How cool is that?! This year, you can turn in your prayer requests even if you’re not attending the conference in person. Hop over to the Revive '19 app and submit your prayer requests, because that group of godly men would love to pray for you! 
  1. Speaking of prayer, if you were encouraged by the global prayer gathering yesterday but don’t know how to recreate it once you go home, my friend Hayley has given you a gift—a guide to seeking the Lord through prayer. Hayley suggests taking an hour this week to get quiet alone with God or with some friends and pray along with us. (And if this resource is helpful to you, consider passing the post to friends or women at your church!) 
  1. Psalm 139 includes one of the most familiar verses in all of Scripture: “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” But what does it mean when it says “fearfully and wonderfully”? Dannah Gresh did an incredible job addressing this verse during her message last night—but I should warn you, she had a whole lot to say about humility
  1. Coming up this afternoon? Kelly Needham, Dámaris Carbaugh, and Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth will be speaking! Ask God right now to bring a friend to mind who needs the encouragement and truth of God’s Word—then send her a link to the livestream! You even have time to text a few neighbors and tell them to come over for the 2 p.m. (E.T.) messages. Erin Davis and Leslie Bennett are hosting the livestream, so tune in thirty minutes early (1:30 p.m.) to catch all of their commentary!
