Product description

Need help communicating with God? Maybe you hunger to know God better. Maybe you love color. Maybe you are a visual or kinesthetic learner, a distractable or impatient soul, or a word-weary pray-er. Perhaps you struggle with a short attention span, a restless body, or a tendency to live in your head. This new prayer form can take as little or as much time as you have or want to commit, from 15 minutes to a weekend retreat."A new prayer form gives God an invitation and a new door to penetrate the locked cells of our hearts and minds," explains Sybil MacBeth. "For many of us, using only words to pray reduces God by the limits of our finite words." For more information, including author events, examples and contact information to request Sybil MacBeth to do a workshop, visit www.prayingincolor.com. Use Praying in Color to help with: *lectio divina -- reading the bible for spiritual growth *memorizing Scripture *prayers for discernment *creating a personal Advent or Lenten calendar *praying for enemies Praying in Color is ideal for: *Intergenerational Education Classes *Women's Meetings *Praying Workshops *Vacation Bible School and Summer Camp *Staff Retreats on Prayer *Summer Sunday School Classes *Wednesday Night Church-wide Programs *Senior Citizens Activity *Youth Confirmation Retreats *Men's Prayer Groups *Prayer Therapy During Convalescence *Kindergarten and Children's Prayer Training *Homeschooling, grades K-12 *Prison Ministry *Ministry to the hearing impaired *Ministry to the disabled
