Prayer for When the Words Stop

image

God, grant me You.
When the words don’t come,
And the mind is jumbled,
When every idea has merit,
But no idea follows through,
God, grant me You.

Lord, fill me with love.
When letters just tumble,
Pages are Teflon coated,
Sentences lead no where,
Plots are but an empty glove,
Lord, fill me with love.

God, renew my calling.
Reaffirm Your gift in me,
Remind me You are the reader,
Push me to write the race,
Read Your word, meditating,
God, renew my calling.

Lord, reignite in me Your fire.
For life deals us blows,
Relationships help and hinder,
Fellow writers can be cold,
Dreams seem to expire,
Lord, reignite in me Your fire.

God, hold me ultra steady.
Is this idea one from You?
Does this plot bring You glory?
Will these characters point to You?
These pages flow at Your ready?
God, hold me ultra steady.

Lord, release in me Your creativity.
Fill me with Your thoughts,
Align me in sound theology,
Overflow me with sweet Scripture,
Fuel in me Your divine curiosity,
Lord, release in me Your creativity.

Father, will You do so now?
For the words have stopped,
The page is so empty,
The characterization fell,
The plot trapped me somehow,
Father,  will You do so now?
