family prayer..

In a time of prayer yesterday, I was struck once again by how similar my prayers are for my family, my local church family, and the family of God.  Motivated both by a desire to connect with these prayers, and admittedly a desire to create something…I came up with a long list of passages from scripture that captured such prayers.  Obviously, I couldn’t use all of them in one fell swoop.  But here are some that made the cut:

Deuteronomy 6:2-4
Zephaniah 3:17
Matthew 22:37-39
Mark 10:15
Luke 14:13
Luke 22:19
2 Corinthians 5:17
1 John 4:16
Revelation 21:5

I began by writing out some of the prayers with finger-painting, and then covered the canvas by hand…with the word “Love” through the image.  While that dried, I wrote out the scriptures, and tried to see what words or phrases would capture them well, to fit on one canvas.  Finally, I attempted to fit those phrases, with my horrible penmanship…onto the painting.

I enjoyed it.  I think I might even hang it somewheres.
