Visual Prayer

Devotional Art is a spiritual discipline which involves a process of writing, coloring, improvising and has a product of written words, designs or drawings that are visual reminders of time spent with God in prayer. The visual and kinesthetic process is significant for driving learning and focus. Manipulating color, contrast, design allows a person to pause, still the mind from distractions and pay attention to God’s Word and the breath of the Spirit. This fifth column each week will be an invitation to enter a more visual world of prayer and meditation. Use the design as a focal point, pick up pencil, marker, crayon and let the Holy Spirit move you with color or keywords in your prayer journal. Let your thoughts lead you to prayer.
