Seeking submissions for:
Prayer for Writers
a handbook of prayers for
your writing life
The anthology CCWF will publish in 2020 is Prayers for Writers.
Do you pray over your writing projects? As Christian writers, we know that should be a priority, but deadlines and responsibilities can distract us. To help make this a focus in your writing endeavors, Capital Christian Writers Fellowship is creating a handbook of prayers for Christian writers. These prayers are from the heart of writers for writers.
We invite our members to be part of this project and ask that each of our members submit one or more prayers for inclusion. Also accepting royalty-free photos, graphics, and/or artwork. You must provide the source for the photos/graphics/artwork (i.e., website link). Stand-alone artwork should be accompanied with a title and/or written explanation. This book is our first anthology project as CCWF.
Submissions open on Tuesday, October 1, 2019.

Receiving submissions from CCWF Members.
Prayers for Writers will serve as a handbook to encourage and inspire Christian writers in their writing life. How do you pray over your writing? We would love to include your prayer insights in this anthology. We encourage you to contribute—sharing your writing prayers with your fellow writers.
Considerations as you write for Prayers for Writers:
- Balance and priority in our writing prayers
Having a collection like this help us borrow from the strength of others who have thought about writing. If we are left to our own prayers only, we can easily fall into a rut. This collection will be a balance of prayers from Scripture and personal prayer.
These topics will be how the anthology will be ordered. When submitting, you’ll be asked to choose which of these topics best fits your prayer(s).
- Begin with Praise
- Prepare Ourselves to Write
- Strengthen Ourselves With Thanksgiving
- Devote our Work to God
- Focus on our Writing Mission
- Prayer for Excellence in Writing
- Submitting our Work to God
- Finish with Blessing
