Afternoon, #Crazy4Fiction readers! As we do on the last Sunday of every month, let’s give thanks and praise for the books that are releasing this April, and lift up their authors as well. The true power of fiction is evident in each of these inspirational novels, and we are continually pleased—and blessed—by the stories of those who are impacted by books like these.

DiAnn Mills, Deep Extraction

I pray my novel touches the hearts of those who are searching for truth in a world where fear has become a disease. The quest for truth takes courage, but you, oh God, are our strength. You light the way for people to push aside bitterness, rejection, and fear of the unknown to embrace your unconditional love. May readers find purpose and meaning with a fresh and intimate spiritual awakening. I pray your people become the voice of life with unconditional love that points to your saving grace.

Deep Extraction

Available in bookstores and online.

Eva Marie Everson, The One True Love of Alice-Ann

Heavenly Father, Giver of talents and dreams:

First, I thank you that you chose me. You chose to love me. You chose me as your child. You chose to send your Son to die as a sacrifice for my sins. But you also chose me to do your work. To write for your glory and for the purposes of your Kingdom. You placed inside of me words and descriptions and stories and characters within those stories. And I am honored and humbled.

Father, I pray that readers will find The One True Love of Alice-Ann to be both entertaining and a mirror by which they can reflect on their own lives, their own choices, and—seeing you in them—can know that “no man thwarts the plans of God” and that when our hearts are burdened with decisions to make—decisions that will greatly shape the course of our lives—you are ready to listen, to guide, and to hold our hands as we put a voice to your will. That they will know that no detail escapes your notice and that our lives matter to you. Matter greatly.

Father, thank you again for the idea and the ability and strength to carry it out. To you be all the praise and the glory. Use my work, Lord. Use me.

Amen.

The One True Love of Alice Ann

Available in bookstores and online.

Prayer from the #Crazy4Fiction team

We bring these novels to you, Lord, and ask that you bless them. May these authors’ words be seen and felt by those who need to hear them. Please allow them to be a light and an outlet for those desperately seeking hope in our culture of darkness. May their messages have everlasting effects for you and your Kingdom. Amen.
