WACO, Texas - A crowd of 11,000 people are expected at Baylor University's Ferrell Center on Sept. 11 and 12, to attend the Just Give Me Jesus revival with Anne Graham Lotz, founder and president of AnGeL Ministries.

"The focus of Just Give Me Jesus is to bring women into a fresh encounter with Jesus Christ so that their hearts will be revived," said Lotz, daughter of well-known evangelist Billy Graham and former member of Baylor's Board of Regents.

This free, two-day revival is targeted at women but is open to all. The revival has been organized by local women and pastors from a wide range of Christian churches.

"We are praying that the Ferrell Center will be filled with women wanting to be revived in their passion for Jesus and that this will bring healing in our families, our schools, our businesses, our communities, and our state," said Varyn Gross, head of the local area committee for Just Give Me Jesus.

Gross and Doris King, began the revival process with a small prayer group. They prayed for revival in Waco, and Just Give Me Jesus was their answer.

"Just Give Me Jesus is the answer to the heart's cry of many women in Central Texas who have been praying for a fresh touch from Jesus for our state," Gross said.

Fernando Ortega, Christian recording artist, will lead in worship, followed by inspirational prayer by Jill Briscoe, Christian author. Anne Graham Lotz will speak about the pages of God's Word.

Just Give Me Jesus Waco is a Waco-area committee of women that issued an invitation to AnGeL ministries and is providing organizational support for the revival.

Just Give Me Jesus Revival will be from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11 and from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept.12.
