BobHostetlerBob Hostetler here, offering another prayer for writers:

I am a weak writer:
in over my head.
But you chose Ehud because of his weakness.
You used him,
not to mention Moses, David, Jeremiah, Paul, and others
(though I did just mention them; see what I mean?).
So grant me the faith
to believe that you can choose me and use me too.
Give me the perseverance to labor in obscurity
and keep on working and growing and developing,
even in the dark.
Help me to write in all my weakness,
in vulnerability,
bruised and broken,
in tears,
in poverty and pain,
waiting for your strength and your timing,
in Jesus’ name, amen.
