monetliliesThank you Lord for this insanely beautiful, incomprehensibly awesome world. What is almost frightening is we know this is only a shadow of what it was supposed to be, and just a taste of what is to come. Lord help me to never be too busy to take it in or too frightened to try to express it. Lord use me and the abilities, ideas and work that you give me to draw people into that beauty until it every eye looks to you. Then help me to disappear so all they see is you.

To you be the glory. In Jesus’ name,


What is your prayer as an artist?

    God gave me a prayer that I use with my students in the Bible Art class(grades Kindergarten through 6th) I teach on Mondays at the mission outreach school here on Okinawa:

    *Lord Jesus, here are my hands to do the art. Here are my feet to follow You. Here are eyes to see good things. Here are my ears to listen and learn. Here is my mouth to speak kind words. Here is my heart to love You and others more. Thank you Jesus, Amen.*

    I use it for myself as much as I use it for them. I need this prayer to be more and more a reality in my own life as I do for them. I tell my students this prayer is not just for them but for me too. They really get it. I have it posted large in the room and they look for it and if I don’t do it they ask me if I will. Some have memorized it and some just listen, I give them the choice to follow along or just listen. I use visual images for the items and words for the rest, like a picture of hands instead of the word hands, etc. This was a gift from God and I am so thankful it truly helps to get all of us on the same wave length, when I forget to say it, it seems the class time doesn’t go as well. It just really helps to set the whole tone of the class time focused on Who instead of just what!

    I pray about every school art project for what God wants me to share through it. Nothing specific but usually based on the given prompt. I also pray for ideas for any personal projects.
