Save Me From Excuse-Making

Lord God,
I remember that Samuel Logan Brengle wrote in a sick bed,
and Ken Taylor wrote on a train;
Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote in prison,
the Apostle Paul while chained to a guard.
Let the same Spirit who inspired those men
save me from excuse-making,
and energize my writing,
wherever I am,
in whatever circumstance,
in Jesus' name, amen.
