Janice Cantore, Crisis Shot

“…for he is God’s servant for your good….” Romans 13:4a
Father God, all praise and honor to you Lord, for the calling on my heart to tell of your grace through fiction. As this new book releases, you know my heart, the novel is dedicated to law enforcement, dedicated to the officers who put their lives on the line each and every day, working a job that is becoming ever more dangerous by the minute. I pray that the story inspires and touches people, opening their eyes to the danger officers gladly confront in order to keep people safe. And I pray the story will prompt people to remember to pray for law enforcement and for the communities they serve.
In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.

Amy Sorrells, How Sweet the Sound

Dear reader,
How Sweet the Sound began as a flicker of prayer in my heart, a hope that somehow the Lord would help me write a story of hope for survivors of sexual abuse. He led me to the story of Tamar, daughter of King David, in 2 Samuel 13, who was raped by her brother and left to live out her life in desolation. And He helped me see, through the eyes of characters like Comfort and Anni, Solly and Jed, that Jesus Christ came to break the chains of inconsolable shame Tamar knew. If you or someone you love is a Tamar, or even if you aren’t and happen upon this book, may I pray for you?
Abba, you know the Tamar’s among us. You know the grief they carry, the fear. You see them, just like you saw me. And you want them to live free. Abba, I pray you would use this story to reach those who need it the most, and even those who think they need it the least, that the kindness of Ernestine would soften their hearts, that the warm, gulf coast breezes would comfort them, that even though darkness overwhelms the beginning pages readers would see the light and love and hope that eventually and faithfully overcomes, just like Your tender, conquering love.
Abba, I pray You would use this story to bind up wounds, bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim freedom to those captive to shame, bring light to those imprisoned by the darkness of incest, comfort to those who mourn, and that they would know the beauty You create from ashes. I pray even those who’ve been devastated for years and generations by abuse will know the possibility of restoration, because You are the God who heals and who sets free.

All the glory and honor to You, precious Abba, our mighty Lord!

Join us—July Book Release Prayers

Morning, #Crazy4Fiction readers! We would like to reflect this Sunday and give thanks and praise for the books that are releasing this June.

 The true power of fiction is evident in inspirational novels, and we are continually pleased—and blessed—by the stories of people who are impacted by books like these.

Courtney Walsh, Just Look Up

Thank you for Courtney’s skillful hand at crafting enjoyable and meaningful romances. The reminder to put away our phones and connect with one another is vitally important in this age of constant busy-ness. We pray this novel reminds people to look up and connect with one another and with you, Lord. Amen.

Maybe what she’s been looking for is right in front of her—

if only she’d just look up.

After tirelessly climbing the ranks of her Chicago-based interior design firm, Lane Kelley is about to land her dream promotion when devastating news about her brother draws her back home to a quaint tourist town full of memories she’d just as soon forget. With her cell phone and laptop always within reach, Lane aims to check on her brother while staying focused on work—something her eclectic family doesn’t understand.

Ryan Brooks never expected to settle down in Harbor Pointe, Michigan, but after his final tour of duty, it was the only place that felt like home. Now knee-deep in a renovation project that could boost tourism for the struggling town, he is thrilled to see Lane, the girl he secretly once loved, even if the circumstances of her homecoming aren’t ideal.

Their reunion gets off to a rocky start, however, when Ryan can’t find a trace of the girl he once knew in the woman she is today. As he slowly chips away at the walls Lane has built, secrets from his past collide with a truth even he is reluctant to believe, putting Ryan at a crossroads that could not only alter his relationship with the Kelley family but jeopardize his future with the girl of his dreams.

Available in bookstores and online.

Tessa Afshar, Bread of Angels

Dear Father, You are able to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. May You place this book in the hands of the ones You know would be blessed by it. Use this story to bring encouragement to the dismayed heart, hope to the despairing one, trust to the shaken soul.

Jolina Petersheim, The Divide

I pray that readers won’t be able to peel an orange, tuck a bulb into the soil, even put a load of whites into the washer, without rejoicing in the miracle of our convenient, modern-day lives. I also pray that Leora’s story–and the story of her community–will help readers understand that even the hardest crosses are easier to bear while surrounded by believers and friends who can help share the weight. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, I pray the The Divide will encourage readers to contemplate the balance between having faith and taking action and will cause them to reflect on their faith journey and how they might deepen it by truly relying on the One who keeps our beautiful blue/green world spinning in orbit and that sacred breath filling our lungs.

Available in bookstores and online.

Thank you for bringing this talented author such beautiful stories.

This incredible rescue undisputedly demonstrates the true power of prayer. Thank you for this real-life miracle and for giving Tracy the talent to breathe new life into this historical event in an inventive way only she could.
