|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…
Valerie Sjodin has a wonderful blog and website, it’s more on prayer journalling in general but just so inspiring. Plus she has an amazing Pinterest board to check out as well!
If you are stuck for simple ideas or where to start have a look at some of Pam’s doodles here
And my most recent doodles are here and here.
