Prayer for Communicators

David B. Collins

God and Father of all,
who from the beginning
came to bring light and truth
and love to man, by the Word,
grant to us who deal with words and images,
such a reverence for You,
that through careful and honest work,
we may keep the coinage of our language sound.
Give us humility to realize that we are called,
not to be perfect but to be clear,
not to be infallible but to be fair.
Direct those who in this our generation
speak where many listen,
who write what many read,
and who show what many see,
that they may do their part
in making the heart of our people wise,
its mind sound, and its will righteous.
