Topic: That God’s will be accomplished at the conference
Verse: Psalm 115:1–Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory.
Dear Heavenly Father, ACFW was founded to bring together writers who wish to honor You in all things. We do not take this lightly. As we gather for our annual conference, we pray that You will be the main focus of our tasks, that each person attending this conference will seek to please You first.
We give You the glory for our accomplishments and we turn to You when we grow weary and think we need to give up. We pray that no matter the outcome of our personal experience this weekend, we will work to serve You first and ask that Your will be done. We hope that our thoughts and prayers for each other will reflect Your spirit and the plans You have for us.
Our talent is a gift from You. Our yearning is part of expressing that gift. Our hope is to use this amazing gift of creativity to show the world the love and acceptance that You have shown us through grace and sacrifice. We work to honor our commitment to You, Oh, Lord and to tell stories that enlighten and enrich the lives of others. Our hope and prayer is that in putting words to paper, we will always honor Your plans for us and thank you in all things. Guide us toward Your will, Dear Lord, as we gather and as we glean. Amen
