Dear praying friends,
A friend of mine – referring to her own project which she’s inviting others to join – said it well: “I know you probably follow a dozen other blogs. There are hundreds of messages, lessons, and words floating around you each day. I don’t expect you to drop everything and join me.”
In the same way, I recognize that you may be surrounded by prayer requests and projects beg or beckon for your support.
But would you read on and quietly consider (with prayer if you need to) joining me in the following way?
As you probably know, my novella, Isolated, was published yesterday. Ecstatic though I’ve been, I don’t want it to cause a spike of excitement that lasts a few days and then dies. Nor do I want it to be something that distracts me from God, my first love.
Rather, I want it to last long into the future as readers hopefully discover it, read it, and are drawn to Him.
No, I’m not asking you to pray for the inanimate object that is my book. Rather, If you will, I would like you to pray for the souls that will read it.
So, I’m going to try something new. I want to send periodic emails with a one-sentence prayer or praise prompt, as well as the Scripture that inspired it when applicable. Something like this:
I don’t have a sending schedule for this, and I don’t plan to make one. It’s just a very short note that I’ll drop when I have something on my heart and want to invite you to join me in prayer.

May God turn our hearts to Him in ever-increasing delight – He Who is our first love.
