One writer's prayer:

God,
I need an invasion of you
without it I cannot write.
My soul is tired.
My thoughts are many and clamoring and futile.
They lead me down rabbit trails to flatness and despair.
I think them.
I re-think them.
I unwrap, unfold, examine them.
I squeeze the essence from them--
and realize the essence will harm me.

Dear God, invade me.
Let me live near You.
Replace my futile thoughts with thoughts of thanks to You.
Replace hopelessness with the sureness of Your nearness.
Take my thoughts, tame them, turn them to You.
Then, my ideas will be worth writing.
Amen.
