St. Francis de Sales, Patron Saint of Writers May the Lord guide all those who write for a living. Through your prayers, St. Frances de Sales, we ask for your intercession as we attempt to bring the written word to the world. Let us pray that God takes us in the palm of His hand and inspires our creativity and inspires our success. St. Francis de Sales, you understand the dedication required in this profession. Pray for God to inspire and allow ideas to flow. In His name, let our words reflect our Faith for others to read. Amen.
