Praying In Color – Resource

Praying in Color is an active, meditative, playful prayer practice.  It is both process and product.  The process involves a re-entry into the childlike world of coloring and improvising.  The product is a colorful design or drawing that is a visual reminder of the time spent in prayer. . .a prayer journal in pictures.

Your first response may be that you cannot draw or this seems too juvenile, well no skill is required and Jesus said “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:3)

So. . . if you are a visual or kinesthetic learner, a distractible or impatient soul, a word-weary pray-er or just a person looking for a new way to pray, this practice may prove to be helpful.
