Prayer Squares (Creative Practice)

One year ago, I felt compelled to create an offering for individuals to hone in
on love, prayer and healing as the pandemic spread and discord increased in our world.
Prayer Squares was born.
Over a period of four weeks, from April to May 2020,
over forty people participated to create a mosaic of 330+ visual Prayer Squares.
You can still view the online mosaic HERE!

Prayer Squares are designed as a bite-size creative practice
to lead you to surprise and delight in your prayer life.
Moving through four simple steps, you’ll experience how prayer comes to life
in a fresh way in only five to ten minutes per square.
This practice can be worked with individually to create a personal mosaic around a theme.
Or, it can be practiced as a family or community to create a communal vision of prayer.


Materials Needed

Pencil
A black permanent marker
Color of your choice
(I use watercolors, however, you can use markers, colored pencils, etc.)
A 3”x3” template to trace (cardboard cut or a teabag works well)
