Influencing the Arts: Writers, Authors & Poets

We are focusing this week on asking our God to cause his Word & Presence to be revealed in the Arts areas of Writers, Authors & Poets. Join us!

Scripture 1

For in Him we live and move and exist [that is, in Him we actually have our being], as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’ ACTS 17:28

Father we thank you tonight for your skilled poets, your writers, your authors, your songwriters and all who put a pen in their hand to do your good will.

Scripture 2

My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my psalm to the King. My tongue is like the pen of a skillful writer.  PSALM 45:1

God, we pray this evening for the unlocking of the tongue and the pen of your skilled and gifted writers. Set the captives free and speaking, yes even declaring boldness to the gift you have placed within them from even before they were in the womb of their mother. Father we pray to encouragement for those writers who have not bowed down to the god of this world but instead have stayed their course to bring heaven to earth through obedience to your Word.

Scripture 3

Let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us, looking away from all that will distract us and focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith.  Hebrews 12:1

God let our hearts hear your heartbeat, let our ink flow with the wisdom and music of heaven. Let our pens script out productions of divine instructions from heaven.

Scripture 4

All Scripture is God-breathed and is profitable for instruction, for conviction , for correction, for training in righteousness, learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately–behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage 2 TIMOTHY 3:16

Father, we call forth for the scribesmen and women, the poets and the authors to take their place. We call to the north, the south, the east, and the west give up and hold back no longer those called of the Lord…come forth the mighty pens,  men and women of the literature of the Lord.

Scripture 5

But they were not able to successfully withstand and cope with the wisdom and the intelligence of the Spirit by whom he was speaking. ACTS 6:10

Father I believe and I am convinced that you have already cleared the path for those to come forth. For the skilled songwriters, poets, writers, seers, scribes and dreamers. We the body now stand and are waiting for …come home…write strong…send the Word once again in the unity of the faith of our God and Father, Lord and Spirit!
