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 July:
Susan Anne Mason
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.
“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” —Isaiah 55:10-11, NIV
General Suggestions for Prayer:
- For discernment when making difficult choices, especially ones related to their writing careers.
- For readers to identify with a character’s struggle in a way that helps them understand God’s love and truth in a new way.
- For wisdom in knowing how to relate to editors, agents, readers, and others they interact with personally and professionally.
Once again, thank you so much for taking a few moments to pray for these authors. Your prayers are so appreciated and needed!
