Contemplate Scripture in Color: with Sybil MacBeth, Author of Praying in Color Reviews
I am a big fan of Sybil MacBeth's Praying in Color method (Or Praying in Black and White if you happen to be a masculine soul). It involves using drawings and colored pencils (or markers and crayons) to sort of mindmap your devotional life—intercessory prayer, Lectio Divina, prayers of gratitude, etc. It is a perfect way to focus, for those of us who's mind wanders during prayer. Prayers are captured in journals, sketchbooks and on graph paper. A record of our doodled devotion. My wife has used this same method in children's ministry, teaching kids to draw their prayers.
