Lenten Practice – February 27

jesus-mandalaToday we are invited to pray about the word (and the person) JESUS. There are many ways you could do this. One is to use the praying-in-color method. Doodling is encouraged! This method of prayer comes from Sybil Macbeth, who has a book for adults, one for children, and a great webpage that includes simple instructions.


Praying in Color = prayer + d o o d l i n g. It’s particularly good for those who are visual and tactile. Give them a pen and some paper, or better yet some colored pencils, and they will make something happen on the page; but ask them to pray out loud with words? Much harder! Start here if you want to give it a try.
