To give praise to You is my desire
And to spread Good News as You require
To comfort the sick and reach the poor
As I listen to Your desire

As I recall the work of Your hand
I prayer my reader will understand
The love You have for Your people
And Your plan to heal this land

Teach me, My Loving Father
Words that will spread Good News
Ever further, ever faster
Touching even the furthest reach

To bring joy to the mourning
And to shine light guiding the lost
To give You glory when Iím winning
To thank you though Iím grieving

To engage with all people
In a way they will understand
It is my deepest desire
To fulfil Your almighty plan

With love and wisdom
Only You could teach
The many harden harts
My words could never reach

Help me O, Gracious Father
To act as Your hand
Despite the enemy still to stand
As a witness to this hungry land

Another entry portraying the beautiful suffering of a writer's soul to have one read and understand the message of God.

Good job. :) I'm guessing your "hart" was meant to be "heart" in one of the stanzas.

Keep writing!

Wonderful encouragment to master the words of hope so others will find Him. Enjoyed this poem.

I enjoyed A Writer's Prayer. It was spot on and beautifully written. Thank you for sharing such inspiration.
