Guideposts Extraordinary Answers to Prayer Series

Posted by Sally Clark on Friday, May 21, 2010 Under: Nonfiction Anthology
We are now in phase four of the Extraordinary Answers to Prayer series published by Guideposts.
 
For volume nine, how has God answered your prayers for your loved ones, or even enemies, to draw them closer to God?  Maybe they don’t yet have a personal relationship with God and your prayers helped bring them to the Lord.  Perhaps they have just wandered away and lost their need for Him.  Or perhaps they are having major trauma and need to grow spiritually in order for God to bring change for the better.  Parents pray for their adult children, adults pray for their kids, and other combinations to build spiritual relationships, go to church, and to grow in their spiritual disciplines.  The list is endless.  We want to focus on the positive when the prayer for a closer walk with God is answered.
 
For volume ten we want to demonstrate the added power of Christians praying together for the same petition.  This joint prayer can be congregational, small group, couples, friends, prayer chains, etc.  How did the addition of one or more people help in getting amazing answers from God?  The prayer can range from serious issues of a global nature requiring large numbers, like the devastation in Haiti, to small needs that still can’t be met with only one person praying.  How were the lives of those who prayed drawn together and changed?  What type of prayer was used in different groups and venues?
 
We would be pleased to accept as many stories as you wish to submit related to these two volumes.  We’re accepting stories of up to 2,000 words and strongly prefer them not to be under 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 a time and place, compelling personal experience stories with true-to-life characters.  They need to be stories in the fullest sense, rather than mere testimonies, or focusing on mere feelings or mental states.  The effective power of prayer needs to be clearly demonstrated.
 
We strongly prefer original stories but you may also submit previously published stories in which the full rights have been returned to you and not currently in print with a major publisher.  The payment is $25 for stories under 1,200 words and $50 for stories over 1200 words.  You may retain the rights to publish the stories in magazines and books with less than national distribution and not carried in nationwide bookstores.
 
We are accepting manuscripts for volume nine, Closer to God, until July 1, but the sooner you submit the better chance you have of acceptance.  If you are considered as a finalist you will be sent a permission form around the middle of September.  Manuscripts for book ten, The Power of Praying Together, are due by August 15, with permission forms being sent around early December.
 
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 is also important to put a 30 word or less biographical sketch on the actual manuscript because this will be included at the end of the book.  We do not want it submitted separately.  Also include within the manuscript – not in a separate email - your full name as you wish it to appear in the book, also your address, phone number, and email address.
 
Please direct all inquiries and manuscript submissions to Jeanette Littleton at incredibleprayers@earthlink.net.  If this email has been forwarded to you, and you can’t submit to this call, but would like to be notified about other editorial needs, please send us your email address and we’ll add you to our notification list (we do not distribute these email addresses).
 
Blessings to you and yours,
