ICF Prayer Focus
Those involved in publishing and the printed word
Ever present God, Your Word is a lamp to our feet, a light to our path, and it is through the printed page that we are able to encounter your living word in Scripture. You give us intellect and reason that can be stretched and shared though the printed word, imagination and emotion so often engaged through poem and novel. Printed words are so much a part of our daily lives, so vital to who we are, yet so easily taken for granted. So we give you thanks for all those whose labours and endeavours place books and publications into our hands, and pray that you will help us to use this powerful vehicle of communication with care and responsibility. Through Jesus Christ, the Word become Flesh we pray. AMEN
