Give me the strength today to pen the words you want written on the page, the knowledge and wisdom to convey the message You desire for the reader to grasp.
I am weak, but You are strong. Lord, I am helpless and can do nothing without Your mighty power and understanding. You make my fingers move on the keyboard. Without You, I couldn’t even find the letters.
You put the words in my heart and allow them to flow through me and onto the page. Without Your knowledge I couldn’t write even the shortest of sentences. And you even placed Spell Check in the program because you know I can’t spell.
Help me mold the words into a story that comes from Your heart. Bring healing and hope to any who read it. Put Your emotion and desire within me to convey Your passion. With every word I type, glorify Your name. I pray in Jesus name. Amen.
“Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves.” John 12:26

Amen. I have a note on my computer that says “PRAY FIRST”. I pray before writing. Have a blessed weekend! 🙂
So true. I’m not sure why I don’t think about praying first. I have to remind myself frequently. Thanks for stopping by. Hugs.
