    Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path To God by Sybil MacBeth

    Has your prayer life become a boring rote practice that is as exciting as a walk down a sullen street underneath a gloomy sky? Is your prayer life devoid of excitement, fun, passion and vibrant color? Well Sybil MacBeth's, "Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path To God" is the book for you. "If you are a visual or kinesthetic learner, distractible or impatient soul, a word-weary pray-er or just a person looking for a new way to pray," then I guarantee that she can help you put color back into your prayer life: Literally!!!

    Sybil's, "Praying in Color" is a new colorful path to prayer or as Sybil writes, "an active, meditative, playful prayer practice" that opens up grand possibilities in prayer, especially for us right-brained kinesthetically inclined folk. It is a way of passionate playful prayer that uses colors, drawings, movement, and Spirit inspired spontaneity to connect with God. Her techniques can include prayers of intercession, prayers of thanksgiving, prayers of lament (or as Sybil terms "compost") and many other types of prayers that draws the individual and even groups to a deeper intimacy with God.

    I totally loved Sybil's book and I think regardless of one's age and brain orientation (left of right, lol), this book can transform one's prayer life. I also loved Sybil's honesty and ability to make us fumbling prayer warriors feel like we are not alone in the world. For example, concerning her prayer life she says that her report card from heaven would say, "not enough detail, wandering attention, too many clichés, too little time and effort, too self-focused, too much fidgeting, too much whining.". Sybil's writing is smart, witty, creative, honest, daring, deep and playful. "Praying in Color" is a must read!!
