Prayer for Authors: September 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 thankful for all of the readers who show their support for our authors in the way that matters most: by praying for them. To read more about the reasons behind this time of prayer, go to this post.

Authors with Books Releasing in September:

Mary Connealy
Beverly Lewis
Melissa Jagears
Anne Mateer

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.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10, NIV

General Suggestions for Prayer:

  • For freedom from fear (of bad reviews, of inadequacy, of comparison to others).
  • For readers to find these books and learn something new about God and who He is.
  • For the strength to persevere through dry or difficult times in life.

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you taking a few moments to lift up our authors in prayer, and I know they feel the same! See you next month, prayer warriors!
