A Writer's Prayer - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

In my nothingness, be glorified
For everything I have all come from You,

Remove the dross and foolish pride
With grace, bless everything I do.

Guide my writing with Your Light
Your Words of Truth inspire me,

May all that comes from pen be right
That all men come to see.

Bless the words with Your great Power
A wondrous working from above,

For You, oh God, made me a writer
Declare the hope of Your Mercy and Love!

'The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life,
turning a man from the snares of death.'

Proverbs 14: 27

'I have come that they may have Life, and have it to the full.'
John 10: 10

    i don't know what to say. maybe, the best thing you have written.
    it strikes me to the core of my being in this harsh forlorn world.
    i thank you sincerely for your letter and want to say
    i have found great joy and comfort in the humanity of the
    Dutch Catholic church.
