Prayer for the gift of writing

This is a prayer for the gift of writing:

O Mighty God, source of every gift;
I pray for the gift of writing;
That I may write
All that you inspire me
To write,
In the best way that
You want;
Grant me the gift of words,
So that I may find
The right words to use
When I write;
May I excel in writing;
That what I write may be pleasant and edifying;
Grant me the ability to impact my readers,
And move them to think, behave and act in ways that will bring glory to your name;
You granted the gift to write
To Shakespeare, Dickens, Chaucer,
Jane Austin, Achebe, Soyinka,
And many more;
You have made great authors
To touch hearts all over the world;
The great poets, novelists
And playwrights were all inspired
By you.
Do same to me.
My humble supplication
I submit to you in all humility and faith.
Amen!
