Pray for your Favorite Writer

My favorite novelist is Francine Rivers. Her books have given me so much enjoyment through the years. When I turn to the first page, I enter another world completely and I am swept away. The characters Francine creates become my best friends or mortal enemies for a time. When she has written in another time period, I am there!

Francine was a romance novelist with a very successful career when she became a Christian. Her first book after her conversion was Redeeming Love, an incredible love story with such symbolism to our relationship to God. It is still her best seller. She wrote a triology called the Mark of the Lion series that I could not get enough of. It was absolutely wonderful. Her books just don't fail me. Lolita's Garden, The Scarlet Thread, the Last Sin Eater (which was made into a movie)- all are worth the time to sit and be encouraged in Christ WHILE reading a great book.

Can you tell I'm a fan? I know I am gushing.

Last August, God led me to begin praying for Francine Rivers. So most every day I pray that she and her family would be blessed and that our Lord would annoint every word she writes. Her new book is a contemporary book about multigenerational relationships. Hmmm.... I CAN'T WAIT!

So, I just thought I would put out the word to pray for Francine as she writes or pray for your favorite writer as he/she sits at the computer pecking away. I know that when her new book comes out, I will be one of the first to buy it and I will feel a little part of the journey behind the book because I made the choice to cheer her on in prayer.
