In a time of prayer a while back, 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:
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.
