Papa,
We thank You for the gifts You’ve given—
Keen mind,
Joyous spirit,
Engaging personality.
Sometimes, we seems to act
As if we also have limitless energy.
But only You are limitless in anything.
Admit it or not, we get tired.

Lift us up,
To serve You through our writing.
Renew our strength.
Guard our health.
Bless and strengthen our immune systems.
Guide us to make healthy choices—
Proper nutrition and adequate sleep.
Give us discernment with our time,
Differentiating between divine appointments and “snake trails,”
Where the enemy would distract us from Your plan.

Help us
To say the important things in memorable ways,
To say the hard things in ways that fall gently on hearts.

Whether with lips or pen,
May we speak, always,
With Your love,
And for Your glory.

We,
Craftsmen of words in the service of Your Word,
Pray it all in the Name of Your Son,
Jesus,
The Living Word.
