In 2011, I attended the American Christian Fiction Writers Conference and I remember picking up Debby Giusti’s “The Writer’s Prayer.” The beginning says, “Lord, inspire me to write stories that touch reader’s hearts.”
It wasn’t until a few years later she had mentioned to me how God had given her the prayer soon after she got The Call. But it wasn’t just for her. The prayer was for everyone who wants to write His stories.
Debby’s prayer was something I had picked up initially because of the card’s vibrant colors, but after reading it, it was her heart, the yearning to follow after God, that I’ve kept this prayer and have prayed it over the years.
May her prayer be an encouragement to you as you write for Him.
