How can I pray for you? by Camy/Camille

I was reminded on Saturday how important prayer is. I was sharing with my pastor and his wife about my writing hopes and it occurred to me to ask them to pray for me.

I don’t really believe in the “prosperity gospel” that’s being bandied about these days, but I do believe that if we’re seeking God’s guidance in our work (in my case, in my writing), then God will bless us because we’re doing what He wants us to do. In a weird way, that stamp of divine approval eases my stress about my life.

So, in paying it forward, how can I pray for you?

Prayer requests can sometimes be private things, so to keep your privacy, I’ve made a form you can fill out that will keep your requests just between you and me. Also please be sure to fill out the form again to update me if you sent me a prayer request in the past. I’d love to hear how you’re doing.

  1. Nothing private. I have a cold, so I'd appreciate prayers for it to not ruin my Christmas. Do you need prayers for anything?

    1. Aww I'm sorry, I have allergies so I can kind of relate. I'll pray for you. For me, I'd appreciate prayers that I can get the Asian rights back for my Sushi series. I want to get them translated into Japanese and then self-publish them. Since my church is a Japanese Christian church, many of my (English-speaking) church friends who are from Japan want to give my book to their Japanese-speaking friends. Apparently my books break a common stereotype among Japanese people about what Asian Christians are like. :) Thanks!
