`Writer’s Prayer

by Anita Perez Ferguson

You are the author of all our stories.

Be with me as I step onto this empty page.

Be to me both fire and wonder,

Inspiration and guide.

May I befriend the reader with true welcome.

May these characters reflect the hope, fears,

And the pain we all possess.

May the blessing of relief and acceptance live here.

As a creator, may I be wise, skillful, honest,

And love this story into being.
