I almost always carry a small notebook or sketch pad in my purse or backpack. It gives me a place to make notes or draw a prayer. Here’s a prayer I drew while waiting for a organ concert to begin. When people see me hunkered over a pad of paper they hesitate to begin a conversation. The pen and pad create a little prayer corner in the midst of a crowd of people. I can retreat to it for some silence and prayer.
This prayer is a vine and a bunch of wacky leaves drawn with a black pen–no artistic skill or fancy equipment necessary!
