The Writer's Prayer


The Writer's Prayer
by Sandy Tritt

Let us pray that we may be guided by our Lord the Almighty on every strokes of our fingers in our keyboard as we shape a literary composition before our eyes in our monitor, and before we click the "Publish" button in our window screen, let us contemplate on the simple prayer written by Sandy Tritt.

The Writer's Prayer

Open my mind, Lord.
Grant me the talent to write
with clarity and style,
so my words go down rich and smooth,
like fine wine, and leave my reader thirsty for more.

Open my heart, Lord.
Grant me the sensitivity
to understand my characters,
their hopes, their wants, their dreams;
and help me to confer that empathy to my reader.

Open my soul, Lord,
so I may be a channel to wisdom
and creativity from beyond my Self.
Stoke my imagination with vivid imagery
and vibrant perception.

But most of all, Lord,
help me to know the Truth,
so my fiction is more honest than actuality
and reaches the depths of my reader's soul.

Wrap these gifts with opportunity,
perseverance, and the strength
to resist those who insist it can't be done.

Amen.


Ps:

May this prayer be a guide of each responsible writer. We have the freedom to express our thought. We have to consider also the right of others. Though we might be right in our opinion. But we have to know the fact. If it meant for some, don't generalize.

Let us bring joy and hope for our readers. Let us share Love and Peace for the wearies.

Nawa'y matagpuan ng bawat manunulat ng blog ang kahulugan ng kanilang buhay sa bawa't panulat na kanilang inilalathala.

Salamat sa pagbahagi ng Panalangin.

God bless and happy weekend.

SEAQUEST - I am sure that kung may matamaan man tayo ay di natin sinasadya. mahalaga we learn our mistake if may magpuna.

Pope - God bless you to bro. I believe that the pen is mightier than the sword,but the Word of the Lord is the mightiest of all. have a nice weekend bro!
