A Call to Pray

Instead of my usual Thursday devotional post, today I am asking you to join me in prayer.

This Saturday, I speak at a women’s conference and I’ve been praying for hard hearts to become soft. I am praying the Spirit moves those lost in darkness into the light. I am praying for the deceived to be enlightened, for the shallow to dig deep, for the Spirit to move mightily. I am praying for repentant hearts, for teachable spirits, for an eagerness to know God better. I pray that the authority of God’s word is accepted as the right starting point. I pray that I will fade into the background and for God to be centerstage.

Would you join me in prayer?

Pray with me for for the woman who once had a moment of sincere conviction, who walked to the front of the church, repeated phrases fed to her, raised her hand or stood up during a service only to wake the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that defeated because nothing felt different. Pray that she begins to understand the next steps required of her, that she will understand what it means to count the cost, to repent, pick up her cross, and follow Jesus.

Pray with me for the woman who is born again but has developed apathy toward the Lord. Pray that she wakes up and strengthens what life remains because where there is life there is hope. Pray for renewed minds and renewed passion.

Pray with me for the women alive and passionately pursuing the Lord. Pray their hearts are encouraged and challenged to dig deeper into the Word because we can study God all day every day for the rest of our lives and still only scratch the surface of who He is.

Just pray.

For them.

For me.

For the Lord to be glorified and His name lifted high.

I speak twice in the morning and twice in the afternoon.

New Book = New Contest!

Today Glorious Surrender releases! I am crazy excited, crazy nervous, and crazy eager to get a copy into your hands because surrender matters.

This isn’t just about that first surrender, that first time you KNEW the Lord was calling you to repent of your sins and trust in Jesus Christ for forgiveness. This is deeper surrender. It is what I believe the Lord calls us all to do: yield every part of our life to Him for His glory.

My struggle with surrender

I’ve struggled with surrender. This book shares about the many times I knew I stood at a fork in the road and had to choose between my way and God’s way. I expect you’ve been to that same place at different times in your life. If you’ve been there before or are there now and don’t know what to do—Glorious Surrender is for you.

I’ve feared surrender. What if it’s hard? Terribly hard? Can I trust God with the things that matter most to me? If you’ve ever feared yielding everything to the Lord—your life, dreams, children, family, desires—Glorious Surrender is for you.

I’ve discovered that surrender is freeing. Something amazing happened when I finally yielded complete control of my life to the Lord. If you long for peace in the midst of trials, contentment that doesn’t hinge on healed wounds or removed hardships, joy in the midst of overwhelming uncertainty—Glorious Surrender is for you.

Today, every comment posted on this blog post, every comment on my Facebook author page (under this shared post) and every comment on Twitter that mentions #glorioussurrender and tags me @WriterSWeeks is entered to win a $25 Amazon gift card.

Glorious Surrender: the book

The book, Glorious Surrender, will, Lord willing, release in November 2016! I’m am grateful to the judges of the Women’s Journey of Faith contest that chose Glorious Surrender as their winner. I’m equally excited and fearful.

I’m excited because this project is my heart split open and spilling out on paper.

I’m nervous because this project is my heart split open and spilling out on paper.

Please pray that the edits are smooth and the Lord works through my editor, trimming the script down until it glorifies only the name above all names—Jesus.

Here is a sneak peek at early reviews for Glorious Surrender: find peace and joy in a life fully surrendered to God.

“Stacey Weeks writes with transparency about the tension and transformation that her role as a pastor’s wife played in bringing her to the place of ultimate freedom – one who seeks God’s glory above all else. She communicates with honesty about the messiness of real life in public ministry, and takes readers on a journey through raw life topics including pride, living authentically, finding true rest in the chaos, and spiritual warfare. Her passion for God’s glory to preoccupy and transform everyday living accompanies every thought on every page. This book is not just for pastor’s wives, it is for any woman wanting to take a vulnerable look at the sins and deceptions that lurk within their minds and hearts, that can stall their progress toward finding true purpose. A must read!”   ~Andrea Keene, author of radio bible study Ruth: redeeming the darkness

“Often we sit in our seats and wonder what the life of our pastor is like, but forget that there is another person in that relationship that must honour the God given calling of that man. Glorious Surrender is more than Stacey’s story; it is about God’s ability to shape any ordinary person into the image of Him.” ~Kevin Miller, church elder at Harvest Bible Chapel Brantford

“If you want to glorify God in everything you think, say and do, I recommend that you spend time reading Glorious Surrender.” Tami Swartz, Biblical Counselor
