“Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed in me.” John 21:29

Lord, I claim your blessing for those who believe but have not seen you. Perhaps today you will see fit to release my Caden Chronicles books from the grasp of Harper Collins.

I have not believed in your almighty power apart from my understanding of it.

My Father, we live during a time of Propaganda Persecution – a time when the prince of darkness seeks to crucify you again by destroying your body, the Church. May you give us the strength and discernement to resist the evil influences that seek to destroy your testimony, twist your words, and call sin “love.”
