Extraordinary Answers to Prayer

Posted by Sally Clark on Tuesday, February 23, 2010 Under: Nonfiction Anthology
Dear Writer,
 
We are now in phase two of the Extraordinary Answers to Prayer series and I welcome you, as a valued writer, to join us.  Guideposts has launched a series of 12 books on various aspects of prayer and how people from every walk of life have been transformed through God’s response to their prayers.  These books will be mailed monthly as part of a book club promotion, and will be exclusive to this readership.
 
You may have contributed to the first three titles in this series or perhaps to my Cup of Comfort, Life Savors, or Love Is a Verb brands.  Or perhaps I am contacting you for the first time.  Whatever the case, I eagerly seek your participation in this next phase of prayer volumes – 6, 7, and 8 - that will introduce new themes beyond the first five published titles that consist of Praying from the Heart, The Healing Touch, Expecting Miracles, From Tragedy to Triumph, and Refreshed in the Spirit.  This next phase will deal with the prayer themes of  forgiveness, times of need, and unexpected answers.
 
Book six, Love and Forgiveness, deals with relationships that have been strained or broken due to offenses against us, and also our own faults and abuses.  We are told to love and forgive first and then pray for reconciliation.  When we pray for love for those who mistreat us and the willingness to humble ourselves and seek restitution and restoration we gain back our families and friends and change the hearts of our enemies.  How was prayer the determining factor in a renewed love, forgiveness and eventual restoration of previous relationships?
 
Book seven, In Times of Need, deals with the times when we’ve run out of our own resources and capabilities to meet even the basic necessities for the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of ourselves and others.  Without God’s intervention and provision we face serious adverse consequences in finances, relationships, health, and important goals in life.  How did God answer our desperate prayers when we came to the end of our rope with no viable solutions and impending catastrophe?  How did he then restore us and change out situations, supplying all our needs?  What lessons did we learn regarding God as our Shepherd, and help in times of trouble?
 
Book eight, Unexpected Answers, may not necessarily deal with deep need as in book seven, but demonstrates God providing quite a different answer than we had expected to any prayer, big or small.  It is not so much the opposite of the answer we want, although it could be, but a creative or unusual response or solution we may not have imagined when we prayed.  God works all things to our good, but sometimes in mysterious and unexpected ways.  Sometimes it even takes us a while to appreciate his ways, but we see the bigger and grander picture that sometimes provides even multiple blessings.
 
We would be pleased to accept as many stories as you wish to submit related to these three volumes.  We’re accepting stories of up to 2,000 words and we strongly prefer that they be at least 1,000 words.  The stories should have a creative title, an attention-grabbing introduction, main body with a conflict or challenge, and a clear, satisfying resolution.  They need to be descriptive, rooted in time and place, compelling personal experience stories.  They need to be stories in the fullest sense, rather than mere testimonies. 
 
Most important of all, they need to revolve around prayer itself and not the circumstances of the story.  These are books with the aforementioned themes but the purpose is to convince the reader of the power of prayer itself in these situations.
 
We strongly prefer original stories but you may also submit previously published stories that you have full rights for and are not currently in print with a major publisher.  The payment fee is $25 for stories under 1200 words, and $50 for stories over 1200 words. You may retain the right to publish the stories in magazines and books with less than national distribution and not carried in nationwide bookstores.
 
We are accepting manuscripts for Love and Forgiveness until March 1.  In Times of Need is not due until April 1 and Unexpected Answers until May 1.  But the sooner you submit your manuscripts the better chance you have of acceptance.  If you are being considered a finalist you will receive a permission form after the final deadline.  When you email us with the manuscript please attach the manuscript as a separate document rather than pasting it in the email.

It’s very important that you list the current status of rights at the top of the manuscript above the title of your story. If it’s an original story it should be listed as first rights.  If you have received full rights back from a publisher it needs to be listed as reprint rights.  We would also like details of what book it appeared in, the publisher, and the date of publication.
 
 
It’s also important to put a 30 word or less biography on the actual manuscript because this will be included at the back of the book.  You may do this at the top or bottom of the story but we do not want it submitted separately.  Also included within the manuscript – not in a separate email - should be your full name as you wish it to appear in the book, your address, phone number, and email address.
 
Please direct all inquiries and manuscript submissions to my colleague, Jeanette Littleton, at incredibleprayers@earthlink.net.  If this e-mail has been forwarded to you, and you can’t submit to this call, but would like to be notified about other editorial needs as they arise, please send us your e-mail address and we’ll add you to our notification list (we do not distribute these e-mail addresses).
 
Blessings to you and yours,
