A Writer's Prayer

Lord, help me to not be intimidated
by the accomplishments of others.
When I see their long list of credits,

I am tempted to say, "I'll never be that good."
Instead of envying others,
help me to focus on my gifts.

Help me to polish them and use them
the best way I know how for Your glory.

Help me to be content with small beginnings,
trusting You to open bigger doors
in Your perfect timing.

  1. Thank you for inviting me to speak to your group this weekend. I was blessed to share with such a talented, gifted, and dedicated-to-your-craft group of Christian writers. I received far more than I gave. Again, if anyone is in need of editorial services, feel free to email me at, and I hope you will let me know of your successes so I might rejoice with you.
