Prayers and Graces Day Three

Things are really going in full swing now for Bryan, Sharon, Wayne and Christopher! The Washington Post is going to do an article on the tour! What fantastic way to reach people that normally wouldn't hear about this incredible event, these wonderful authors, and their dynamic books! All kinds of appointments are being made and met so it really does seem like divine appointments are rolling out one right after the other! The authors are in high spirits and the convention is in full swing right now. Christopher Hopper's 'Lion Vrie' is sold out and going to go into second printing, pretty sweet! Sharon Hinck was almost late yesterday to the event because her adoring fans were wanting to talk to her! Not a bad reason at all to almost be tardy.

The authors are going to be at ICRS again today for another signing there and Bryan Davis (and maybe the others too) has a signing at LifeWay Christian Store in Douglasville in GA before they hit the road tomorrow morning.

So things seem to have settled down and their hearts are being knit together and today should be one of encouragement and delight for all four. Should and will however can be two decidedly different things. So, here is heart cry number three:

Heavenly Father, thank you. I would that I had better words to express my gratitude but with You so many time I am struck dumb because there aren't words for how I feel. Here goes anyway.

Thank you for keeping Christopher and his wife safe and helping them to get to the event on time, thank you for flooding Sharon's station with fans of the Restorer to buoy her heart, thank you for giving Wayne favor at his meetings, and thank you for blessing Bryan as he talked with people and geared up for today. Thank you for the opportunity with the Washington Post article and the doors that will open.

Today I ask that You be the Gate and the Good Shepherd for these brothers and sister in Christ as they meet fans and buyers at the ICRS convention. Protect their time, let nothing take from them that portion of the day that the set aside to meet with You. Give them rest, and give them opportunities to be really ministered to as well as ministering to others. I ask too that You would guard their weaknesses and protect them from being pushed in their strengths, that as they are praised and lauded and they would in turn pass the glory onto You and lift up all the people that have been a long standing part of their team. Show them how fitly joined they are in the Body and hide them away in Your presence this day.

Again Lord I ask that you bless and keep their families, and that as You are now making the way straight for their feet that You do the same for their loved ones. Bless their children and help them to discover the dynamic destinies that they have in You, bless their spouses who believed in them long before there was reason for the rest of us to recognize their talents, let them be strengthened today.

I ask a special gift for all of their family members starting today, that You breathe into them as You breathed into Adam and quicken their gifts, talents and abilities. Revive flagging hopes and fan into flame again the secret desires of their hearts that You have given them.

And for them, and the authors Sharon, Wayne, Bryan and Christopher, I ask that You give them refreshment this evening and restore their souls while they sleep.

In the name of my Brother Christ Jesus,
