God's grace

A Christian Writer’s Prayer

Dear Lord,

May I never lose sight of the truth that writing is

      a calling, not an existence

      a craft, not an accident

and a passion, not an obsession.

That being an author should never be taken lightly because words last forever, and have the unique power to provide

a touch of love

a balm of comfort

a breath of encouragement

or a tickle of laughter at the perfect moment.

Please help me to be a writer who glorifies you.

Whose words spin more than a well-written tale,

but a story sprinkled with enough flavor of your grace

that your children will find it satisfying

and unbelievers will crave another taste.

  1. Amen, Sherrinda.
    I’m right there with you.

    It’s all about ‘focus’ and priorities. Regardless of editors, publishers, or contests.

    The One who holds us….
    The One who calls us…
    will equip and guide us too.

    I’m so glad, because I need all the help I can get 🙂


  2. Thank you for the beautiful reminder. I will also read this frequently because it is an awesome opportunity to write. I try to write from my heart to the unseen audience. Smile.
