Prayer for Authors: January 2017

Happy New Year! 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 January:

Jocelyn Green
Leslie Gould
Kristi Ann Hunter
Tracie Peterson
Kimberley Woodhouse

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.

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’–Revelation 21:4-5 (NIV)

General Suggestions for Prayer:

  • For a renewed sense of purpose and energy to accomplish writing and marketing tasks.
  • For readers who will pick up these books to be blessed by the messages they contain.
  • For patience when work is hard, ideas don’t seem to come, or a season of waiting seems like it will never end.

On this first day of the new year, I especially appreciate you taking a few moments to pray for our January authors, and I know they do as well. Many blessings on you in 2017!
