Admittedly, I am a crappy pray-er. I have the attention span of a cocker-spaniel whose owners are having a dinnerparty, and the result of my distraction is that my prayer life is sporadic, hurried, and fuzzy, at best.
Last week, though, I learned about a new tool to use in prayer that has really helped this cocker-spaniel-soul of mine. It’s called Praying in Color, and it uses the visual arts to help focus your spirit. I learned it at a ladies group I went to recently, and I found it worked great with my kids this week, too. I thought I would share the idea– you know, on the off-chance that there’s someone else who’s prayer life is less than stellar.
For more information and examples of using art to focus your prayer life, visit Sybil MacBeth’s site, Praying in Color, where she has examples and book information on this method of prayer.
Am I the only one who struggles to pray? What have you found that works in your life?
