Logos Prayer

Lord, I pray to breathe each word
as You would have me to be heard.
Guide my thoughts, that they may find
expressions best to voice my mind.

Your Word rings true before all said,
beyond all things I ever read.
As pages fade from day to year
and phrases fail to persevere,

inspire rhymes to long endure,
convey with grace, and reassure
through verses paired with vital sight,
enlighten readers by your Light.

I plead my meanings move as meant,
my stanzas sing with your intent.
Should silence speak a better way,
please help me see what not to say.
