Prayer for Authors: July 2016

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:

Mary Connealy
Kristi Ann Hunter
Tracie Peterson
Dina Sleiman

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.

Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.”– 1 Chronicles 16:10-11, NIV

General Suggestions for Prayer:

  • For the ability to prioritize time with God even in a busy season with lots of things on the to-do list.
  • For readers to have a deeper or new understanding of their faith after finishing one of these novels.
  • For times of refreshment and encouragement in unlikely places.

As always, I’m grateful for and encouraged by those of you who take a few moments to pray for these authors. It means a lot!

  1. I love this idea! I started joining you in prayer last month. I wrote out the verse and prayer suggestions on an index card and kept it with my prayer journal so I’d remember to pray all month. I’m planning to do the same again this month.
