Feb 1, 2018Archive, Find joy today

Something very fun is happening today!

I’m launching a shorter-format podcast where I pray for you every single day of the year. (Prayers appreciated for endurance!) The idea originated from my author marketing mastermind group when we had our yearly gathering.  And it’s connected to my latest book, Jesus Every Day.

But, really, the passion for the podcast came after I moved back from France. Sometime around 2008, I began writing MIND IF I PRAY FOR YOU in the latter part of my monthly newsletter. There, I typed prayers for my readers. I did this consistently for several years, and throughout that time, I received correspondence (sometimes even snail mail) encouraging me to write a book with my prayers in it. I agreed. So I wrote a proposal, and it languished a few years. Eventually, Harvest House Publishers contracted the book, much to my delight! The devotional takes you through the whole counsel of Scripture (Genesis to Revelation). I pray for you every day based on that Scripture. In addition, I’ve created a freebie where you can receive a personalized prayer in your inbox every Monday for a year.

I love to pray. And I have loved the opportunity to pray for you via the written word.

So Pray Every Day is similar in scope–except I get to pray out loud! As I contemplated the idea, I wanted to give my listeners a more comprehensive view of Scripture, so I decided to go through a book or a chapter, verse by verse, followed by a spoken, spontaneous prayer. I chose Philippians because I have struggled with joy lately, and I wanted to pray those verses into my heart.

Here’s why I’m so excited. I’ve often told people I’d be happy if I could pray with others every day of my life. I love to see God transform folks, and I stand here before you today all because others dared to pray me toward health. While I love writing prayers, there’s just something powerful about speaking those prayers out loud.

So, tomorrow, Pray Every Day, the podcast, launches! I’ll start by reading Philippians 1:1, then pray. The next day? Philippians 1:2, then a spontaneous prayer. I cannot tell you how joyful it’s been and what a holy privilege I’ve experienced as I stand in front of my microphone and pray.

My greatest desire is that these prayers would reach beyond borders. Would you pray with me that Pray Every Day would touch people all over the world? I would really appreciate it. And if you’d like to help spread the word, click here for sample shares and tweets.

I’ll end with my favorite thing…
