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.
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.
GUIDANCE What to do, What to say? Steer me from my retrograde. I am lost and so afraid. Quiet lights can show the way.
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
PRAISE A place of song--- The whole year long, Crafts and arts And hymns to stir Our hearts.
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.
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.
