A Writer’s Prayer

Heavenly Father,

Help me to trust that the words you encourage me to write meet the needs of those you guide to read them.

Let me continue to delight in the beautiful words written by others and not despair in the simplicity of my own. Help me remember always to thank them and encourage them in their work.

Guide my thoughts and my hands to express your Holy Word in our lives. Allow me to follow your will, to trust your ways, to be unconcerned with how I write but that I write in the light of your Light.

Lord, send me peace of heart so that envy and disparaging does not constrict my work for your glory.
