Praying In Color

 Jan Stolba

When you want to pray, are you easily distracted or impatient? Do you struggle to find the right words? Do you want a new way to pray? Praying in Color is a way to pray with your eyes, your ears and your hands. It is like doodling – you don’t need to be an artist. Open up a new prayer path to God – open your heart to praying in color. This is a wonderful prayer method for all ages. Come when you can.
