Today I’m asking readers to pray for Realm Makers Bookstore, Lorehaven, and me in these ways.

Today’s story is a bit more personal. That’s because I’m asking readers to pray for Lorehaven and me in specific ways.

  1. Please pray for safe travels—for all the Realm Makers Bookstore crew in Cincinnati this weekend.
  2. Pray for conference-goers to be led to God-glorifying fantastic imagination by the books we share.
  3. Specifically, pray that these stories would help show students how excellent stories by Jesus’s people glorify our excellent God.
  4. Pray that our conversations would reflect our happy and truth-discerning approach to fantastical fiction.
  5. Please pray for an upcoming creative announcement I’ll make here, and elsewhere, within the coming weeks.
  6. I would also love prayer for my ongoing fiction projects. (These I don’t share publicly very often!)
  7. Pray that Lorehaven magazine would grow in godly ways, and be a blessing to Christian readers.
  8. Please pray for (by name) authors Rebecca P. Minor, Kerry Nietz, Gillian Bronte Adams, and S. D. Grimm!
  9. Also please pray for “plain” smooth business operations, human energy, and the making of friends.
  10. Finally, I’m finding new opportunities to take Lorehaven and my own writing into new frontiers. Please pray that, with church family’s and friends’ help, I would make wise decisions and always, always glorify God and live out the gospel in my work.

Soli Deo gloria,
