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 May:
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.
“With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands, and encourage those who have weak knees. Say to those with fearful hearts, ‘Be strong, and do not fear.’“–Isaiah 35:3-4 (NLT)
General Suggestions for Prayer:
- For courage to persevere in their writing and their personal lives.
- For clarity of thought and focus in the midst of distraction (and deadlines).
- For book buyers, librarians, bookstore employees, and others who connect readers with books.
Again, I love having all of you with me for this tradition of prayer. I know these authors appreciate it as well!
