Prayer for devotional writers

Lord God who has given us your inspired Scripture, bless those writers among us who produce regular devotionals, so that they may be:

  1. Biblical. Let Scripture truly come to light as we read. Keep them from using verses or phrases out of context in order to make their own personal points.
  2. Pertinent. Let their words be relevant. Help them to reach people where they are, to deal with situations and questions they face.
  3. Meaty. It’s hard to be concise without being superficial. Help them to share truths that are significant and sustaining.

Thank you for the service they provide in developing our spirituality, in urging us to greater communion with you, and in leading us to serve and love others.
