The other day someone close to me came to mind. I thought I should pray for them. I knew I had a picture of them on my computer. I found it, opened it in a photo editing program and made it lighter or more transparent. Then I printed the picture on a full size piece of paper. I wrote down bits of my prayer: words, phrases, blessings, desires, wishes, Biblical verses, etc….all over the picture until it was full….all except the face of my friend.
Variation 1: This works as a blessing as well – fill the page with good, positive things that you want poured out upon your friend in the photo.
Variation 2: Get more creative – draw pictures or doodle on the picture, use colored pencils / markers, make a collage.
Variation 3: Try it with a group photo of friends or family.
Variation 4: Try it with a picture of a place (office, school, home, church) or a map (city, state, province, country).
Variation 5: Try it with a picture of yourself.
