Prayers of the Women

The art reflection to write prayers emerged out of previous visits working with women inside a family detention center. The goal of the mixed media exercise was was to help the women identify their prayers and then make the art as a way of releasing their anxiety over to God, trusting that God would make the way clear and answer their prayers.
 I always have slips of printed scripture verses that the women can include in their collage if desired. Some will use only one; others find creative ways to include several.
