Let Other People Talk Week - A Creativity Prayer

Today is Ash Wednesday; this marks the beginning of Lent, a time for, among other things, more intense prayer and listening. In light of that, here's a creativity prayer I wrote last year for our Creative Instigation presentation. Invest a few moments today to ask for a potentially new source of help for your creativity to enliven and inspire others.

Lord,

Thank you for creation itself and the incredible gifts and talents you so generously entrust to me. May I appreciate and develop these talents, always recognizing that they come from you and remain yours.

Guide me in using them for the benefit of everyone that I touch, so that they may be more aware of your creative presence and develop the creativity entrusted to them for the good of others.

Help me also to use your talents to bring a creative spark and new possibilities to your world, living out my call to be an integral part of your creative force. Amen.

BTW - One reader called today to ask what I was giving up for Lent. One of the main things is going online before 6:30 a.m. mass in the morning. It's intended to help me focus more on mass than thinking about work, and to get to mass earlier to spend some time in prayer.

This is great! Thanks for sharing this prayer and encouraging a healthy integration of faith and work. Too often we separte the two, and its refreshing to see this come back into business.

Great stuff!
