|Prayer Doodle by me!|
So as you may know I’ve been enjoying prayer doodling recently and now I discover it’s actually ‘a thing’! So here’s a bit of a round up if you want to find out more…
Praying In Colour by Sybil MacBeth is a website (and a book) full of resources, definitely worth a look… the website says this about Sybil:
Sybil can’t remember a time she didn’t pray; but she also can’t remember a time she prayed “well.” The prayer practice Praying in Color was born when her desperation to pray for family and friends intersected with her love of color and doodling. As a confessed non-artist, she marvels at God’s sense of whimsy and humor in giving her a way to pray through drawing. One of her favorite passages from Scripture is 2 Corinthians 12:9. “My grace is sufficient for you for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.” (NIV)
Then there’s this from Mara Measor a completely different kind of doodling, line drawings and no colour. I love the simplicity of her drawings.
This, on the Finding Hope blog with some good advice on where to start.
I also just love this from Shirley Harvey, although from her bio I suspect we’d differ on our definition ‘God’, this is such a raw and honest post with doodles just falling out of her…
If you are stuck for simple ideas or where to start have a look at some of Pam’s doodles here
