#bookish The Reader’s Prayer by Debby Giusti

bookishWhat most blessed my heart at the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat in Nashville, TN last month was the unity shared by authors and readers as sisters in Christ. We encouraged one another, worshiped together through song, and prayed together.

One author even included a prayer she wrote for readers in each participant’s take home bag. Debby graciously allowed me to share that prayer with you here.

Thank you, Debby!

The Reader’s Prayer

Lord, thank you for giving me a love for reading.
Lead me to books that entertain and uplift and touch my spirit for good.
Open my heart to find the message in each story that reflects your sacred truths
and helps me to see more clearly the path I am to walk.
Be my inspiration and my guide,
and ensure the books I read draw me ever closer to you.
Amen.

Debby’s stories have won numerous awards, including two Daphne du Maurier Awards for Inspirational Suspense, the National Readers’ Choice Award, the Golden Quill, the Beacon, the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence and the Write Touch. Her eighteenth book, PLAIN TRUTH, releases in September 2016, and an Amish Suspense Trilogy follows in 2017.  In addition to full-length fiction, Debby has written magazine articles for Southern Lady, Woman’s World, Our Sunday Visitor, Army and Family, and served for over twelve years on the editorial advisory board of ADVANCE for Administrators of the Laboratory.

  2. Beth, thank you for sharing The Reader’s Prayer! The entire CFRR was so very special. A day I will always remember! God bless Carrie, Bonnie and Annie for working so hard on this first reader event. Hopefully, we’ll be blessed with more CFRRs in the future.

    Thanks for spreading the news about authors and their stories, Beth. I’m touched that you included my work on your blog.
