“How do you pray about your writing?”
My spiritual director asked me this question a few weeks ago. I said, “I pray the psalm, ‘O God, come to my assistance, make haste to help me!’” (I was only sorta joking).
But I was surprised and unsettled by her question (and continue to be): How do I pray about my writing?
And the truth is: I don’t really. I do pray, “Help me to do what needs to be done” but this is more about tasks to cross off my to-do list. It’s not about co-creating with God through my writing.
So, my question to you is: How do you pray about your art (whatever medium it is)? Please leave a comment and let’s get a conversation going. Thanks!
