Algebra Prayer

Aug 29, 2011

A friend asked me to pray for her granddaughter who needs to pass a math test in order to place out of a college algebra class. So I prayed for her. Since Azalea’s issue is algebra, symbols from math courses seemed appropriate doodles for her.

For the art-anxious, this should be clear evidence that praying in color requires no artistic skill. Repetitious drawing of the symbols creates a way for me to stay focused on my prayer for Azalea without getting hung up about the picture. The infinity symbols on the outer circuit are a mathematical way to indicate the endless and inestimable love and power of God.


  1. corny

  2. I don’t think it’s corny at all. I think it’s really beautiful. I’m currently struggling with algebra and I needed this. :) Thank you, Lord, for preparing little Easter eggs in my life, even on the web.
