A Prayer for Japan

Mar 12, 2011

“Do not withhold your mercy from [them], O LORD; may your love and your truth always protect [them].” Psalm 40:11


  1. Sybil, That’s really cool!! This really is a great way to pray!!! I’m using the Lent Calender this year. I’m getting the daily scriptures off the Daily Lectionary website. I’m enjoying this special way to worship God this year.
    God Bless. Lael

  2. Bless you, Sybil. This is so fine. The Japanese are on my heart just continuously. Heartbreak and overwhelm and tears, I must say.

    I have recently bought the book and am loving praying in color, just loving it. The quiet and peace I feel as I pray and color-pencil a pattern or a name is like nothing I have done before. I have always liked to color. I am 63 and have often bought a coloring book and a new box of crayons just because I feel like being a kid! But this is beautiful. I printed off the Lent calendar and have been praying Lent in color.

    Thank you for listening to God as He gave you this creative way to pray, and then sharing it with us. I am blessed.

    Caring through Christ, ~ linda

    • Thank you, Linda, for taking the time to write this. I completely understand the coloring book and crayons! God’s peace and a Holy Lent to you. Sybil

  3. Hi there – What an inspired prayer to God with the shape of Japan and the prayers within it’s borders.

    I have been tasked with putting together a retreat on the Psalms for this Saturday, and planned all along to introduce your book, bring along my copy, and set aside time for the women to pray a psalm, using the techniques of Praying in Color as another visual way (besides the singing, dancing and writing,) to engage with Psalms and God.

    Thank you for sharing this gift, this concept with others and continuing your ministry with this blog!

  4. Hi! I am so blessed to know about your blog and I just wanted to say thank you for this prayer.
    I live in Japan and we’ve been through hard time for this two months here.
    We really need prayers now.
    And I am so encouraged by your way of praying. I was interested in art therapy, and I was thinking how I could use it as christian. And I’ve come to this blog. I would like to know more about praying in color and use it for my own life from now on. God bless you!

  5. Chihiro,
    Thank you for writing. I am happy that our world becomes united through our prayers. I continue to pray for Japan and its people. God Bless you. Sybil
