For My Work in Progress

Father, I pray
for my work in progress,
this book I am working on now.

Thank you so much for your kindness in the writing,
thank you that I feel
your power and energy,
focus and inspiration
through the process.

Inspire its composition,
and even now,
its acquisition and distribution.
Guide it to a publisher that will believe in it
and make it all it should be.

Even now,
prepare places in bookstores and on shelves for it.
And prepare and bless
the publisher's attempts to promote it and place it.

Make me wise and discerning and diligent in the things
that are in my control
and trusting,
utterly trusting,
in the things outside my control,
and use it to the glory of Jesus' name, in which I pray, amen.
