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.

Morning, #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 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.

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. May you banish fear, anxiety, and self-condemnation in the hearts of those who read this book. Bless this simple novel to bring joy, laughter, and treasured friends to those who need it. I thank You, Jesus, for the privilege of writing for You.

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.

Melanie Dobson, Catching the Wind

This story is yours, Lord. I pray you would use it to bless readers as the research and writing has blessed me and that each person reading this novel would be encouraged by the relentless journey of a man who refuses to break his promise.

Thank you for your many gifts including the gift of story. And thank you for giving all of us the opportunity to write new stories with our lives, the foundation of each journey anchored in your unfailing love. With a grateful heart, I present Catching the Wind as an offering and pray it will be used to draw readers closer to you.

Tracy Groot, The Maggie Bright

Thank you for bringing this talented author such beautiful stories. The Maggie Bright unfolds during the Battle of Dunkirk, when a world leader cried out to his country for a national day of prayer—and, Lord, we are astounded by your response. 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.

Available in bookstores and online.

Prayer from the #Crazy4Fiction team

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.
