Prayer for Authors: December 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 November:

Regina Jennings
Ronie Kendig
Julie Klassen

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.

And he shall stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. And they shall dwell secure, for now he shall be great to the ends of the earth. And he shall be their peace.–Micah 5:4-5, ESV

General Suggestions for Prayer:

  • For moments to reflect on the joys of the writing life and not just the deadlines and demands.
  • For organized minds when accomplishing tasks and making decisions during a busy holiday season.
  • For those who will receive these (and other) books at Christmas to be blessed by them in unexpected ways.

As always, I appreciate that all of you take a few moments out of your busy lives to pray for our authors. It means a lot!

  1. THANK YOU for reminding me especially to pray for our Christian authors today. I will certainly do that! I am in touch with Bethany House and several Christian fiction authors. I will remind my book club, “inspirations from Christian Fiction” to pray for them too. Barb Collver
