Prayer for Authors: April 2017

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.

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.

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.–Ephesians 3:16-17 (NLT)

General Suggestions for Prayer:

  • For the ability to show grace toward others and themselves.
  • For curious readers to begin to ask questions about God because of the messages of these books.
  • For moments of peace and rest in God no matter how busy life gets.

Blessings on your Sunday, readers, and thanks for taking a little bit of it to pray along with us for these authors!
