Prayer for Authors: December 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.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.–John 1:14 (NIV)

General Suggestions for Prayer:

  • For balance and moments of peace and reflection even when there are other demands on authors’ time and attention.
  • For freedom from comparison and inadequacy.
  • For booksellers to have a productive holiday season and the ability to deal well with stress amidst the busyness.

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy days to pray for these authors and their books. We appreciate having you join with us!

  1. I am just about to bring out my first book
    ‘The Memory Box’ feeling excited but nervous. I pray it will empower people living with memory issues and cognitive impairment and anyone else who reads it. I am a born again Christian and I have lived in an intentional Christian community in the UK. I would appreciate your prayers. Thanks Sarah
