Lectio Divina in Color – A Guided Prayer Practice with Sybil MacBeth
In this episode, we are joined once again by Sybil MacBeth, the author of Praying in Color, for a guided prayer practiced known as Lectio Divina in Color. This episode is taken from the Lectio in Divina Live event we did together that is available on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZagle0XIqc Lectio Divina is an ancient prayer practice where we listen to God speaking to us in Scripture. Rather than trying to figure out the text or place our understanding on it, we sit with a listening posture before God. In Lectio Divina in Color, we engage the prayer and what we are hearing by writing, drawing, or creating other forms of art! Before beginning this episode, we encourage you to grab some paper, a pen, or your favorite writing utensils and enjoy praying in color!

In this episode, Phil is joined by Sybil MacBeth, the author of the book Praying in Color. They discuss the invitation to pray through art and doodling, entering a conversation with God that incorporates our whole being. We cover a lot of ground in this episode, exploring gratitude, how praying in color helps us get still, praying for others through art, what to do with distractions, praying without words, and praying when we don’t know what to say. Praying in Color has been a huge blessing to Phil (who is the furthest thing from an artist) and we are positive it can help you make space for God in your own life as you look to connect to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
