Concentration, ability to see what is not yet visible, and freedom to embody possibility are all precursors to creative expression.
My prayer response:
Creator, Even when I am not sure, help me to trust my ideas, body, and attentiveness enough to move ahead.
- God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed. Out of the ground the LORD God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Genesis 2:8,9
- Pay attention to how you listen; for to those who have, more will be given; and from those who do not have, even what they seem to have will be taken away. Jesus’ words in Luke 8:18
- Prize Wisdom highly, and she will exalt you; she will honor you if you embrace her. Proverbs 4:8
Invitation to prayer:
Position your body, hands and face as you see God.
How are your emotions, thoughts, and senses inspiring you to pray?
