what’s praying in color?

it’s wonderful. that’s what?!

it’s a practice that allows you to enhance your prayer life using paper and pens, pencils, crayons, whatever.

at lhkidz camp, on 4th grader prayed for her family with this girl and a heart with wings

this past week of kidz camp our focus was “experiencing God” and we taught experiencing God through prayer, the bible, and hanging out with people that love Jesus.

when i read Praying in Color, i knew that i wanted us to do this at camp for our ART breakout.

holly bieber, one of my most artistic friends came to lead things.

she showed them things from her own prayer journal from the past couple of years… taught about how to use drawing to serve as meditative prayer. my friend leallison said this, “Where has this been all my life? how have i not known about praying in color?! i’m not an artist, but i can do this.”

you see… as you are drawing, coloring, decorating… you are focused on your subject matter. with this in mind, this creates a prayer experience with visual evidence. then, each time you reflect on the thing you drew, you are able to repeat the prayer. does that makes sense? i hope so… it was pretty special.

here is a link: http://prayingincolor.com/ The author, Sybil MacBeth, has given us something new to consider… and i’m so grateful. so so grateful.
