Miraculous Answers to Prayer

July 4, 2015
Miraculous Answers to Prayer
 
Jim Bell is now compiling a story volume for Bethany House Publishers with a working title of Miraculous Answers to Prayer. Jesus said in Matthew 21:22, “And whatever you ask in prayer you will receive, if you have faith.” I’m sure you’ve had numerous wonderful answers to prayer in your Christian life. What I’m seeking is the story of perhaps your most amazing answer to prayer that would show unmistakable evidence of God supernatural power and presence in an overwhelming, if not impossible, situation.
 
You need to demonstrate the link between the given prayer or prayers and the miraculous consequences to follow. As with the other three volumes in this series if there are heavenly encounters or supernatural presences, so much the better. The main test is that if prayer hadn’t been part of the equation there would be no human or natural possibility of the incredible outcome.
 
We’ll consider original, unpublished stories of up to 2,000 words and they must be at least 1,000 words.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, with a realistic portrayal of the characters involved.
 
They also need to be substantive stories rather than mere testimonies or teachings, and the focus should not be just on the supernatural realm alone, but rather the spiritual lesson learned. Please include a personal biography of 30 words or less at the end of each manuscript.
 
We will have a rolling due date for the manuscript until we receive our quota of stories but would appreciate your submission within a month of receiving this email. Please send your manuscript attached to the e-mail rather than pasting text in the email window. Send your manuscript in normal manuscript formatting in Times New Roman, 12-point, with your full contact information--name, address, phone number, and e-mail address at the top of the first page. We are offering a one-time fee of $50 for stories 1,500 words and over, and $25 for stories under that word count.                           
 
We will send you contracts upon the publisher’s acceptance and would need them back promptly. Payment will be made after all contracts have been received. Please direct all inquiries and manuscript submissions to my colleague, Jeanette Littleton, at supernaturalstories2@earthlink.net . If this e-mail has been forwarded to you, and you can’t submit to this call, but would like to hear about other editorial needs as they arise, please send us your e-mail address and we’ll add you to our notification list.
 
Blessings to you and yours,
