Christian writers have an advantage: prayer. 
And yes, we should pray for our own writing, for direction,
for open doors. We can pray for the right connections while remembering to
serve as we network. 
Here are a few more suggestions for your prayer list this National
Day of Prayer (and beyond):
* Pray for Christian publishing. Editors, agents,
publishers, publishing boards, reviewers, publicity and marketing specialists could all use prayer to help get
the message of hope in God into the hands of readers. 
* Pray for fellow writers. Great thing about the kingdom of
God (including His family here on earth) is that we are not in competition.
There aren’t a limited number of spaces; there’s room for everyone. Each of us
has a specific calling. So, lift up your fellow writers, asking God to give
them favor and insights, wisdom and breakthroughs. Their breakthrough is yours
too. 
* Pray for readers. Truly, this shouldn’t be last on the
list. As you’re writing, pray for your reader. Pray you’d pen the words that
will minister to someone else. Isn’t that the ideal use of your calling in the
hands of God? Pray readers’ hearts would be open and attentive to the Holy
Spirit’s nudging. Pray that God would touch readers while they read Christian
fiction. Jesus used story to change lives. And isn’t that what we’re doing? 
Dear wordsmith, this National Day of Prayer, don’t miss the
opportunity to join with millions of people who are praying to the God who
created the world with words. And know that the Pelican staff prays for you.
