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. (And yes, I was on vacation over August 1, so we’re catching up with two months of authors this time.) 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 August and September:
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.
“All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.”—John 6:37-38 (NIV)
General Suggestions for Prayer:
- For lots of wisdom when thinking through how to allocate time and energy.
- For good connections and relationships with readers, other writers, publishing staff, booksellers, and many others.
- For readers who are searching for comfort, truth, or encouragement to find it in these novels.
We here at Bethany House are so thankful for all you do to encourage authors along with us by lifting them up in prayer. Thanks for taking a moment of your day to do so!
