Viewing pictures of those for whom we’re praying can enhance prayer. If you haven’t done this before, maybe this is the day to try it out?
At first, find a few pictures of loved ones. Place those photos in an area(s) where you’ll see them regularly while praying.
As time goes on, this practice can stay relevant by adding more hard copy photographs around the house and/or by adding photos using technology. Locating hard copy photos all around may even help prompt prayer?
[For those liking technology, you might also create a Word/PowerPoint document and copy/paste photo images of people who are on your prayer list. This electronic file of pictures can be on your computer and also “on the cloud” for viewing the photos on smart phones, tablets or other computers even when away from the house. As a small example, HERE is such a prayer photo collage for world leaders and families (past and present.) ** NOTE: please don’t let this technological option become a burden – it’s just an additional way to make prayer visual and impactful. If it’s not adding joy, it’s not worth considering! ]
With Memorial Day happening tomorrow, maybe you “dig out” some family pictures of those loved ones who’ve gone on before us to place around the house for remembrance?
Have fun with pictures and prayer. Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit!
