You give me a reason for being,
a sense of mission in this life.
I see small accomplishments and realize
there is a purpose behind them.
My creativity is a gift from You.
I recognize these blessings
more and more each day.
I know I am on the right path.
Continue to guide me.
Give me more strength,
so I can reach my distant goals.
I search for peace in my writing.
I ask for others to find happiness there.
I know You will guide those who listen.
I look to my writing in hopes of seeing visions,
those windows You open for me.
I ask for wisdom.
Touch my shoulder and guide me.
I pray to hear Your voice in the silence of the night,
in the noise of confusion,
and with the terror of the blank page.
