Incredible Prayer: In Times of Change & The Desires of Your Heart

Posted by Sally Clark on Sunday, September 5, 2010 Under: Christian Publisher
We are now in the final phase of the Extraordinary Answers to Prayer series published by Guideposts. You are a valued writer and I welcome you to join us by contributing to volumes eleven and twelve of a series dealing with various aspects of prayer and how people from every walk of life have been transformed through God’s responses to their prayers.  Recent titles include In Times of Need and Unexpected Answers.  These books will be mailed monthly as part of a book club promotion for Guideposts, and will be exclusive to this readership.
 
You may have contributed to some of the first eight titles 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 and will have the privilege of including your story with other powerful answers to prayer.  Whatever the case, I am sure that God has worked in your life at some point in the areas of In Times of Change, volume eleven, and the Desires of Your Heart, volume twelve.
 
For volume eleven, In Times of Change, there are numerous milestones in your life and your loved ones that would qualify.  At almost every point in our life there is some sort of transition and often we’ve never been down that road before.  Pregnancy, birth, graduation, marriage, divorce, changes with your kids, career change, financial upheaval, empty nest, grand parenting, and death, are some of the major ones.  We anticipate many of these changes with hope and joy, but also with anxiety, doubt, and inadequacy.  We seek God’s wisdom and strength in our prayers, as well as greater maturity and accomplishment.  How did your prayers affect the outcome of these various transitions, both transforming you and bringing you into the fullness of God’s blessings?
 
Volume twelve, The Desires of Your Heart, will deal with the things you may want most from God but not necessarily need.  God knows how we are wired and delights at times to make our biggest dreams come true – above and beyond what we can ask or imagine.  What blessings in answer to prayer have demonstrated God’s overwhelming generosity and super abundance?  In what unusual ways has He gone to great lengths to meet the desires that may be peculiar to you alone?  As our desires are multi-faceted these answers include all categories in life – not just finances or relationships.
 
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 salvation 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 1200 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 eleven, In Times of Change, until October 1, but we’ll be starting to read for that book in September.  If you are considered as a finalist you will be sent a permission form around the middle of November.  Manuscripts for book twelve, The Desires of Your Heart, are due by November 10, with permission forms being sent around early January of 2011.
 
It’s very important that you list the current status of rights at the top of the manuscript.  If it’s an original story it should be listed as first rights.  If you have sold first rights but still have reprint rights, 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 my colleague, 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,
