Lord, thank You for being consistently faithful and perfectly timely.
You can handle every detail of our writing journey, simply because You are Creator and Sustainer of the world.
You are trustworthy and all-knowing and good to all You have made.
So, please, help us to be patient with You, Lord.
Show us the next step You want us to take, the next project You want us to work on, and even the next word You want us to write.
Show us when You want us to be still and when You want us to move ahead with Spirit-empowered wisdom, courage, and persevering faith.
We can trust You with the lulls, the delays, and even the unexpected U-Turns and detours on this adventure You’ve got planned for us.
When we’re struggling with impatience, please infuse our hearts with contentment.
Help us rest in the peace of Your constant presence, as we invest in the development of our voices and our craft.
Lord, please help us desire nothing above knowing You, worshipping You, praising You, serving You, and pleasing You.
As we follow Your leading, no matter how fast or how slow the pace You’ve deemed necessary, help us trust You with every moment we work, and with every moment You ask us to embrace the wait.
In Jesus’s name, Amen
