Prayers for Writers

 

Prayer of a Writer 

Lord of all things, whose wondrous gifts to man

Include the shining symbols known as words

 Grant that I may use their mighty power only for good.

Help me to pass on

Small fragments of Your wisdom, truth, and love.

Teach me to touch the unseen, lonely heart

With laughter, or the quick release of tears.

Let me portray the courage that endures,

Defiant in the face of pain or death;

The kindness and the gentleness of those

Who fight against the anger of the world;

The beauty hidden in the smallest things;

The mystery, the wonder of it all….

Open my ears, my eyes; unlock my heart.

Speak through me Lord, if it be Your will.  Amen

                                                                                                  –  Arthur Gordon

A Writer’s Prayer

Divine Source,

You have given me the talent to weave words,

To string sentences and create stories.

Give me the strength and courage

To probe the depths of my soul

And bring out the words

That will allow me to communicate to the world

Our oneness with You.

Grant me the wisdom to write in ways that will inspire others

To revivify and respect our divine nature.

The written word can be very powerful.

Help me to make my writing a potent force

In bringing about positive changes

In the individual hearts and minds.

Writing is a noble profession.

Remind me always that I write to explore

And not to exploit;

And that my being a writer should not stand in the way

Of my being humane and dignified.  Amen
