Prayer for Authors: January 2021

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 Lokkesmoe, 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 January:

Misty Beller
Jody Hedlund
Tracie Peterson
Roseanna M. White
Kimberley Woodhouse

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.

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”—Matthew 11:28 (KJV)

General Suggestions for Prayer:

  • For true and renewing rest after (and even in the middle of) busy seasons.
  • For these authors to be encouraged by messages from readers describing the impact of their books.
  • For all those who work in roles to connect these books to readers, including bookstore owners and employees, librarians, and publishing staff to start the year off with new energy and goals.

As we start this new year, thank you for joining with us in prayer for these authors and their books. We all appreciate it!
