Dear Loving, Merciful and Gracious Lord,
I come before you today with a heart of graditude. I thank you for your grace and mercy upon my life; for your tenderness and warm embrace that you consistently give to me each day. I thank you for your protection over my life and over my family and friends lives also. Father, I come before you with a burden for new writers like myself. God, this journey as a writer is a challenging one. When we do the research and write query letters and book proposals, it just seems impossible to get published. Many publishers aren't considering new authors and that can really be discouraging to us out there. I ask that you help us to remain focused on exactly what you've called us to do. Lord, we know that you've given us these writing gifts and talents because you want us to use them for your glory. And God, it doesn't matter if it inspires 100 or 1 person to come to you; all that matters is our obedience and you get the glory in that. I realize that in this world we're living in, money is a big factor with everything out there. But Lord, again, help us to remain focused and not even worry about that. God, you supply all of our needs according to your riches and glory and we depend on you and above all Thank you for supplying all of our needs. Lord, I just thank you for blessing us with the gifts and abilities that you've given us and I ask that you would help us to stay focused; to continually write our work and trust that you are in control of the rest. Lead and Guide us by your Holy Spirit and Let your will be done.
In Jesus Name! Amen!
