Prayer for Authors: October 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 October:

Lynn Austin
Connilyn Cossette
Michael Phillips
Lauraine Snelling

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.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.–Philippians: 6-7, NLT

General Suggestions for Prayer:

  • For time to pause and reflect on God’s blessings instead of focusing on stresses or fears.
  • For those who get books to readers, including librarians and book store owners.
  • For God to use these novels in a powerful way to change hearts.

Again, we appreciate all of you who join us on the blog to pray for our authors. It’s an honor to have such a supportive group of readers.

  1. Hi BH, Please forward to Jody Hedlund: Hi Jody. Thank you for ‘Love Expected.’ It was a sweet romance – reminded me to remember Jesus is my Lighthouse and Home – when I still have deep longings too. Thanks for the wee escape and lesson. Blessings, Krista McGinn
