Picture a Prayer

We think in pictures, not words. And we pray in pictures, in moods and metaphors. My prayer space takes on several images finding Rest, expressing Gratitude, asking for Guidance, to Praise and more . . .

What are your prayer pictures?

REST
A place to put my head to rest, 
All my cares to be addressed 
Without asks, just as I am,
Unmasked, as a weary lamb,
With the Shepherd who knows me best.

The Shepherd Who Knows Me Best
GRATITUDE
 
THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Across the blue,
Stretching high 
Almost out of view.
Who am I? That you
Bestow so much?
I humbly wish I knew.
Bird, Mountains, View, Sunset, Top View
Gratitude Soaring Across the Blue
GUIDANCE

What to do, What to say?
Steer me from my retrograde.
I am lost and so afraid.
Quiet lights can show the way.
Night, Forest, Glowworm, Light, Lantern
Nature as a Lighted Path
Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.
           ― Mother Teresa

In The Hands of Prayer
PRAISE

A place of song---
The whole year long,
Crafts and arts
And hymns to stir
Our hearts.

A Place for Praise and Carols
PRAYER SPACE AS A RHYTHM

Prayer as a walk, 
A continuous talk.
A gentle rhythmic tug.  
Each step confirms 
What I continue to learn.
I am loved . . .  I am loved . . . I am loved.
Man, Bridge, Lonely, To Stroll, Walk, Winter Landscape
I am loved. I am loved. I am loved.
SUPPLICATION

Ready rooms where life can zoom
Into safe, divine wombs,
To pray for peace, all wars to cease
For the lion and the lamb.

    Gloria! My prayer space took on a whole new image today. Loved visiting your prayer spaces. So many new “pictures” for me to explore today.
    It’s going to be a beautiful, busy day today!
    Especially loved the thought that prayer is the world’s greatest internet connection! Never thought of it like that. Comforting thought! Free for everyone…(if only everyone knew.)
    You have a special “connection” and a very gifted way to help others to share in your beautiful experiences.
    Thank you for being such a blessing to me❣️

    oh yes this one really makes me think about my prayer spaces- many for me as I find myself in prayer all day long! I start with prayers of gratitude as I leave the house for my morning run, a time so peaceful! Thank you so much for your wisdom and beauty!

    1. A visual truly helps. I am sure you have your own perfectly arranged spaces for prayer every minute of the day.
