We continue to be humbled by the response to our first book, A Bead and a Prayer: A Beginner’s Guide to Protestant Prayer Beads! It has remained on the Upper Room Books top ten books list for most of the past year since publication. We have been so blessed by all the stories of you who have read the book, used it as a Bible study, made prayer beads, developed a deeper connection with God, etc. So great!
We’ve also heard many of you asking for a follow-up book, and so I’m thrilled to share with you that book #2 will be here before we know it! Another Bead, Another Prayer: Devotions to Use with Protestant Prayer Beads will also be published by Upper Room Books and should be available January 2015. I am particularly excited about it because I co-wrote it with my husband, Max Vincent!
You’re the first to see a preview of the new cover!
As you can tell by the subtitle, the book is a collection of devotions designed for use with Protestant prayer beads. It includes four sections: praise, confession, intercession, and thanksgiving, with seven devotions per section (you know I love the number seven!). Each devotion contains a full devotion – including prompts for each set of week beads, as well as a listening meditation. The listening meditation is one simple phrase that can be said repeatedly with each bead to help you listen for God’s voice.
We will keep you posted as it progresses through the editing and publication process! Meanwhile, we covet your prayers for us and all who are involved in its production!
