Prayer for Authors: April 2019

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 April:

Lisa Bergren
Davis Bunn
Jennifer Delamere
Beverly Lewis

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.

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without pretense. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who cultivate peace.”—James 3:17-18 (CSB)

General Suggestions for Prayer:

  • For efficiency with tasks or parts of the writing/publishing process that they enjoy less.
  • For readers who wouldn’t normally read faith-based fiction to pick up one of these books.
  • For upcoming writing projects at whatever stage they might be in.

I really appreciate these monthly times of prayer. What a joy it is to know that readers are praying for our authors and their books! Thanks so much for joining us.

  1. I will be praying for them! This year I started looking for these posts and have been praying for each of the authors and their releases as each month comes. 🙂 It’s a blessing to have authors out there who write God glorifying books.
