Writers' Prayer 1:
Breathe life into what lays dormant in me, the words, the characters, scenes I have yet to see.
Reach in and pull the best despite the worst in me, reach through me
Even as they read, reach through my words and be
A balm of laughter, a balm of healing, words of hope and feeling
The words will mean nothing without your kiss upon them
Help my words set the eyes of readers' souls firmly upon you
Even after the story ends, leave readers with a strong sense of You
Writers' Prayer 2:
Lord, every talent we have comes from you. This gift you've given comes wrapped in words.
Breathe your power into them so they will matter. When people read the pages, reach through the lines and be a balm of humor and encouragement on human hearts in desperate need.
Writers' Prayer 3
Put your hands over mine on the keyboard, Lord, spark ideas inside my head
Give me dreams of lands far away as I drift off to sleep in my bed
Plant your words in my soul and let them flow forth
As I commit the works of my hands and heart to you
Writers Prayer 4
Help us to always write as worship
May our words make you famous
Let every word reflect your heart
Help us never to forget what a privilege it is
To take part in the creative process
This talent is a gift from you
May we always use the gift to honor you
(Humor) Writers' Prayer 5:
Now I sit me down to write
I pray the Lord that as I type
If Face book tries to distract me away
To my characters I pray I stay.
