An Artist’s Prayer for Illumination

Prayed during a workshop on mixed media spiritual expression; Batesville, MS, May 2018.

Creating God,

Just as you speak to us through many voices in Scripture, you speak to us through countless artists of the past, present, and future. May we meet you in paint brushes, pianos, and pieced-together quilts.

When things get messy, help us remember that so are ceramics. And still you’re a potter, gently shaping the soft lines of our bodies and our hearts even when things feel ready to crumble.

Give us courage to shake off the dust of our own expectations, that we might see and hear you in new ways, and through the work of your Spirit help others to do the same. Amen.
