How Can I Pray for you?

Posted by on Apr 15, 2014 in For Readers | 13 comments

Greetings, friends! I was blessed last week to hear your prayer requests and to be able to pray for you. It would be an honor to do the same again…

How can I pray for you this week?

For the month of April, I’d like to pray for you each week and if you have anything on your mind or heart, please feel free to share here and I’ll be adding it to my prayer list. If you’d rather email it to me, you can do that directly on my contact page. Thank you for being here and I’ll be praying especially for all of you to have an encouraging week. Hugs!


  1. If anyone ever had reason to question your faithful heart (which I doubt very much) this should remove any doubt. You’re such a wonderful example of a child after God’s heart, I love this about you, among so many other things. I’m praying for you as well, my friend. May your beautiful family have a lovely and blessed Easter in the Risen Christ.

    • Beverly,

      That is so sweet, thank you. And thank you for your prayers. I will be praying for you too! You’ve got a busy season of life around you, but a blessed one. :) Also, some fun stuff going on with your books!

  2. Joanne,

    We’re lifting you up, right back. Peace, sister. And good writing for all. In His name…


  3. Hi Joanne, I’d appreciate prayer for the revisions I am working on for The Daughter of Highland Hall. You know how it feels to recieve that revision letter and then have to dig in and make all those changes. I am grateful for the excellent editing help I receive…but it’s still a challenge for me to figure out how to do what she is suggesting. Thanks! Carrie

    • Carrie-
      Oh yes, those revision letters are so bittersweet. And the work that goes with it can truly be taxing. I’ll be praying for all the right ideas to fall into place for you as you revise and for the writing to go smoothly and the story to be something you are so, so pleased with on the other side.

    • Carrie, I’ll keep you in my prayers this week, too. I’m looking forward to The Daughter of Highland Hall, and I know God will help you through these revisions.


  4. Joanne,
    Thank you so much for your prayers last week. They were a great help. This week, I’m attempting to figure out how to edit one book while writing another one. This will be great practice for when I have contracts to fulfill. It’s quite daunting at the moment, though. My request is for guidance through this trial-and-error phase. I’m approaching my writing time as figuring out what will and won’t work in the future. God’s been helping me, and I know he’ll continue to do so.

    Thanks for praying for me!
    How may I pray for you this week?


    • Andrea,

      You are welcome. It was encouraging to me to be able to pray for your writing and all that it entails.

      As for this week, editing and writing at the same time can truly be a challenge. I’m in that spot myself right now with editing a manuscript for my agent and also writing a new one. I will be praying for you as you go through this phase.

      And thank you! I’m readying a new book to get to my agent sometime in the next week or so. I’m just praying that all things with that go smoothly as the story continues to where it might head next.

      • Looks like we’re requesting the same thing today. :) That’s awesome. I’ll be praying for ya!

      • Thank you!

  5. Please pray for:
    My father in law. He had surgery to remove bladder cancer and tumor. Also had a treatment of chemo today.
    My pregnant niece’s father who is in the end stages of MS.
    A dear friend’s family. She passed in January and her father passed Saturday.
    Thank you!

    • Amy,

      You can count on it. I’ll be praying for your loved one this week and all they are going through. Sending you a hug!
