Show Us the Next Step, Lord!

(Suggested Reading: Psalm 16)

Thanks for reminding us that nothing is worth more than an intimate relationship with You, Lord. You are our Protector, our Refuge, our Provider, and our Wise Counselor.

Help us come to You first, rest in You continually, and always commune with You before we even think about writing.

As You fill us with Your truth and transform us with Your love, please empower us to place every detail of our writing journey into Your hands.

Please give us the words You want us to write and the stories You want us to create.

Help us enjoy every aspect of the writing process, from brainstorming to plotting, from editing to platform building, from pitching to publication, marketing, and everything in between.

Give us wisdom, a discerning spirit, and the courage to obey and trust You, even when Your pace and Your path doesn’t match our expectations or our goals.

Please remind us our identity and our value is in You, not in what we do or what we write, Lord.

As we seek You daily and pray for the readers You entrust to us, please reveal the next step You want us to take.

Thanks for the privilege of using writing as a tool for ministry.

We love You. We praise You. We need You, Lord.

In Jesus’s name,
