In our home we all have special places where we like to create. In those nooks, corners and studios are inspiration walls: a combination of pictures, quotes, fabric, sayings, and words that guide us to create. Sometimes life happens and we don't especially feel like making anything, or writing anything, or really doing anything creative. That is when the inspiration wall comes in handy and the following prayer kicks our lazy butts into artistic action:

An Artist's Prayer

O Great Creator,
We are gathered together in your name,
That we may be of greater service to you,
And to our fellows.
We offer ourselves as instruments.
We open ourselves to your creativity in our lives.
We surrender to you our old ideas,
We welcome your new and more expansive ideas.
We trust that you will lead us,
We trust that it is safe to follow you.
We know that you created us and that creativity
Is your nature and our own.
We ask you to unfold in our lives,
According to your plan, not our own self worth.
Help us to believe that it is not too late
And that we are not too small or too flawed,
To be healed~
By you and through each other~and made whole.
Help us to love one another,
To nurture each other's unfolding,
To encourage each other's growth,
And understand each other's fears
Help us to know that we are not alone,
That we are loved and lovable.
Help us to create as an act of worship to you.
~Julia Cameron
