Things you can pray for:
- The completion of chapters 1 and 12. These are still in editing, and chapter 12 will need substantial revision. This will probably happen in the next two weeks.
- Endorsements. I have endorsements in from Kris Lundgaard and Don Whitney, but there are at least half a dozen other potential endorsements that I'd still like to see come in.
- Marketing. Of course, I'll be talking with Shepherd Press about this and I'm sure they have some great ideas. Some marketing depends on the author. And the best marketing may be word-of-mouth recommendations. So, spread the word! :)
- Most importantly, pray for the Lord to use this book to help people in their spiritual growth.
