Spiritual/Reflective Poems

Writer's Prayer (A)

Be the thought that enters my head, God.
*Be the words that I type on my screen;
And be the images that come to my mind
As I go onwards through my day.

You know what I would like to say
To others who turn to my writing,
And also the minds of my readers.
Let my words be uplifting to their souls.

Guide my fingers as they tap my keys,
And be near me as my words flow
Like water from a mountain spring –
Fresh, clear and running sweetly.

You know exactly the thoughts in my head
Even before I start to write these words.
Let my words be your words that I write.
God, in you I trust.  Be my guide and my helper.

*Write poems?  This also includes typing them, as I do of course.  This is such a useful skill that I can recommend you all to learn to type, ie touch-typing, so that you do not have to take your eyes off your screen or paper because you trust your  fingers to take you to the correct key.  I taught secretarial subjects for many years.  Josie
