As readers, we get to know authors through the words they’ve written in story form. But what about the words written on their hearts? In Words Matter, Robin Lee Hatcher shares some of the prayers she has prayed over a group of writers over the past decade.
About the Book
Robin Lee Hatcher shares her heart in this slim volume of prayers. The book got its start in 2009 when she was asked to post prayers in an authors’ email group. These are prayers for anyone who loves Jesus and wants to serve Him. They are prayers that Robin needed to say for herself as well as for others. Above all, they are prayers from her heart, and perhaps they will reveal a little of who she is to those who read them.
“What an eloquent collection of prayers for writers—or for anyone who bears the image of our Creator God. (In other words, everyone!) I especially like the way the prayers are indexed to be used for specific needs, various holidays and other occasions. This is a collection I will turn to again and again for comfort and inspiration.” – Deborah Raney, author of Bridges and the Chandler Sisters Novels
