Words for the World
by Eva Gibson, OCW Prayer Team
Lord, shine Your glory out through us, your writers. Give us faith to believe and craft words that speak to the hearts of men, women, and children. Amen.
God often reminds us that it is He who gives His Word that we might proclaim His message to our generation. Excerpts from Romans 10:8–18: “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart . . . faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ. . . . Their voice has gone out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world” (niv).
Through these words we hear the cry of a world that needs Christ to illumine their darkness. I remember the words Petey wrote: “Teach us how to dip our pens in the inkwell of Your flame and neon the vision across the darkening sky, flinging forth Word, bright sparks out-raying the Divine.”
