PRAYER:

PRAY for Artist Advocates who see the need to affirm and involve the CREATIVES in the life and ministries of our churches, ministries and mission outreaches

PRAY for church leaders to affirm the reality and importance of our ‘imaginal intelligence’ and how God designed ‘imagination’ to allow humans to touch HIS Transcendence, and the transcendent realities HE’s created in life and living

PRAY for more artistically gifted Christians to recognize the essential role God’s designed them to play in leading people, communities and culture to touch the transcendent reality of God Himself; and the transcendent realities HE’s created in life and living.
