Prayer for Authors: March 2014

Since it’s the first Sunday of the month, we’ll be continuing the Bethany House Fiction tradition of taking time to pray for authors who have new releases coming out this month. I’m Amy Green, the fiction publicist here, and I’m so glad we have readers who are willing to pray for these wonderful authors. To read more about the reasons behind this time of prayer, go to this post.

Authors with Books Releasing in March:

Julianna Deering
Elizabeth Ludwig
Judith Miller
Siri Mitchell
Anne Elisabeth Stengl

Verse of the Month: Feel free to use the text of this verse to guide your prayers for these authors, as well as other people in your life who you want to remember in prayer today.

“The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:5-7, ESV

General Suggestions for Prayer

  • For the message of the books to come across to readers in a clear and powerful way.
  • For the removal of distractions and frustrations that interrupt the writing process.
  • For energy for all of the events and publicity that go along with release month.

Thank you so much, readers, for joining me in our virtual prayer group. I know you care about these authors and their books, and I know they greatly appreciate your prayers.

  1. What a great thing – your call to prayer. Yes, fiction stories make us think, affect our lives. I have just read Siri Mitchell’s new book, and what perfect timing! In these winter months when I seem to not be able to concentrate on anything, along comes Ellie, poor scatterbrained woman who has to find a way to save her friend from an unknown enemy. I was reassured throughout that God is with us, even when we can’t seem to see the full picture.
