Teach us to pray: 30

Praying with art

This week, I will be posting a picture for you to contemplate each day.

With each picture I suggest that you ask yourself
What do I think is going on here?
How are the people in it feeling?
What might they be thinking?
What am I drawn to or challenged by in this picture?
If I could talk to the characters, what would I say and how would they respond?
What do I want to say to God in response to this?
