A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities

I seldom hesitate to ask my readers to pray for me. I need prayer in so many areas of my life. I need prayer for spiritual strength. I need you to pray for moral purity. I need prayer for my attitudes and thinking. I need you to pray for my prayer life. I seldom preach now, although I still could and would preach if God gave me opportunities. Prayer is my most important ministry. And in deed I need you to pray for my writing.

I have always worked at my writing. The first thing I wrote for publication was written my sophomore year in college. That was 1968. I have written regularly since then. But I never imagined I would come to a point where I would spend most of my days writing. God had to allow me to be afflicted with cancer before I would consider it. I had to lack the energy necessary to pastor a church before I would consider retiring. And yet He has granted me many years beyond what the doctors thought, to write and keep on writing.

In Isaiah 30:8 the Lord spoke to the prophet.

"Go now, write it on a tablet for them, inscribe it on a scroll, that for the days to come it may it may be an everlasting witness."

I need you to pray that I will be faithful to write. I don't know how much time God will give me. I have six more books planned, if He allows. I need you to pray that I will know what God wants me to write. Most of all I need you to pray for God to use my writing by His mighty power. Just like a sermon, the effect of writing depends upon God. Pray for Him to be glorified beyond all measure by His hand on my writing.

HOME IN THE WILDERNESS, my third and final(?) novel in The Wilderness Series has been released.

This Saturday, June 18, 2016, the Kindle edition of HOME IN THE WILDERNESS can be downloaded free. I am hoping some of you will read it and put a good review on Amazon. Most of all I trust you to pray.

Dear Lord God, You are the Writer of the Bible, the Book without which we cannot live. Thank You for the Bible. Send out Your Word and let it not return to You void. Let us be not be only listeners/readers, but doers that bear fruit in Your Kingdom that will glorify Your Name. Thank You also for the gift of writers and writing. Thank You for all the wonderful books that blessed us all over the years. We are grateful! Now I pray for David Young and his writing and for all other writers for whom You want to answer this prayer. Give them the words they need to bless others in Your Name. Let the words bring inspiration and guidance and encouragement and peace and joy. Help them to faithfully and joyfully do and complete the work You have given them. Give them the time and protection and energy they need, in Jesus' Name, amen.

David, I can't wait to read your new book! Woohoo! It takes an author to understand the joy of finishing a book, I think! I hope you're celebrating and will be praying for you in return for the book to be a seed in the right hands of the right people! MULTIPLICATION, LORD!!!

Andrew, I am blessed more than I can say. Thank you for your prayer. Thank you for your encouragement. Thank you for your faithfulness.

Father, please honor David's faithfulness to your calling in his writing.  Grant that his most recent book will be an encouragement and an inspiration to many.  You know the people - inside and outside your family - who need the message of that book at this time.  So please lead them to the book.  We trust in your sovereignty over book sales and distribution, and most of all that you will bring fruit to your honor and glory.

Please continue to grant David strength to write so that he may encourage, instruct, and inspire others.  Bless his work and use that work as a blessing to many.

In Jesus' name. Amen.
