A Writer's Prayer

In the beginning, God created… Gen 1:1 (NIV)


Everything I do is an echo of what you have already done. Where you spoke life into being, I reflect that creation through words. You created the heavens and the earth for your pleasure foreknowing there would also be heartache, sickness, destruction, and grief. Yet even with that knowledge you continued to write your story knowing in the end it would all be worth it. Help me remember that you yourself did not shy away from pain and suffering, but willingly sacrificed all for the benefit of someone seemingly small like me. As I sit down today, I pray that each word I write would be an honest reflection of who you are and what you have done simply because of love.

  1. It is always an encouragement when it comes to God and His Son. We are all so very blessed just to have a creator who would show love in such a truly sacrificial way. He hears a speck praying. It is always amazing how as we get older, we are the some of our parents and God through Jesus. We see lessons in life that show the bible, God, and Jesus are alive and well. I may be the only time Jesus is seen in ones life. May all be blessed to the awakening of Jesus in them and may they believe, for the gift is truly freeing. Thanks and may YHWH bless all.
