A writer’s prayer

O God, my brain is full of knots.
Gnarly knots, clumps of thin strings twisted impossibly, impassibly.
Lord, loosen these knots.
And, Lord, bless them. Bless them for the work they show—the work of trying to understand who you are.
My mind is open. Open my mind.
My heart is open. Open my heart.
Give me the words to speak your peace, your presence.
Lord, loosen these knots.
Lord, release these words.
For the glory of your Word.
Amen.
