A week of 24-7 Prayer at Waverley Abbey: Creative Prayer Journaling (Workshop)

May 11 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

What is creative prayer journaling?

Throughout your faith journey, you may have experience with journaling your prayers or dreams to God. Creative journaling takes that conversation one step further and puts it in visual terms, by applying artistic techniques and creative concepts to the journaling process.

This workshop is intended as a practical, enjoyable tool to deepen your relationship with God by reflecting on his voice within you. We will explore the steps taken when connecting with God’s voice, as well as the barriers we can encounter and how to respond to them. No prior artistic skills are required or expected, all you need is yourself, your journal and a willingness to listen to what God has to say.

Creativity is not a personality type or a skill set. It is a birthright. There is creativity in our problem solving, our communication, even in the way our body grows and heals. Genesis 1:27 says ‘God created mankind in His own image,’ meaning we are literally made to reflect our creator by being creators ourselves! We were all destined for creativity in one way or another.

What you will need:

  • Your journal – ideally a sketchbook, avoid ruled lines.
  • Your Bible.
  • Pencils and pens – a few different colour options are recommended.
  • (Optional) Watercolours or other paints if you feel confident working with such things.

We will have some spare supplies but please do your best to bring what you can.
