Artist's Prayer


Oh Great Creator, maker of

heaven, earth, breath of life, fire, gods, men, beasts.


I have come into Your presence to attain guidance,

with offerings of myself as a tool of Your hand.


To open myself to Your desire, and welcome Your ideas,

and to believe You will bring truth.


I will follow Your guidance.


I know that You created me and

the act of creating is Your nature and Your way.


I ask You to put my life in order,

so I can be beneficial to Your plan.


To illuminate to me that life is not at an end, that I can be healthy,

with You and through You I can be whole.


Limit not my love and acceptance,

and allow me to accept other people.


Give me knowledge of my fears and acceptance of them.


So that I may become loved and attain love.


Make strong my acts of creation

as an act of worship to You.
