My Prayer
By Mary T. Hoffman

When writing poetry, Dear Lord,
Your Presence is so near;
Or painting in my studio –
Is that your voice I hear?

Lord Jesus, guide my actions
So everyone may see,
And all my work’s a witness,
That I belong to Thee.

May You be glorified
In all the work I do.
My writing and my painting,
I owe it all to You.

(Written 8 October 1982)
