Description

This is not just another coloring book. It is a guide to prayer for anyone who wants to connect with God by creating something visual and concrete.

Since 2007, thousands have enjoyed learning a new prayer practice called Praying in Color from Sybil MacBeth. This new coloring book and guide includes an introduction to fourteen types of prayer, along with 32 pages to color.  Sybil teaches how to use these types of prayer while you color:

Prayers for Others, Prayers for Yourself, Disgruntled Prayers, Gratitude Prayers, Praise Prayers, Regret Prayers, Spending-Time-With-God Prayers, Blessing Prayers, Praying for Enemies, Praying with Scripture, Praying Your To-Do List, Daily Inventory Prayers, Hodgepodge Prayers, Prayer Calendars.

Slowing down isn’t easy in our culture where stimulation and constant virtual connection are the norm. If you find the transition from busyness to stillness difficult, follow Sybil to a slower, more contemplative pace through coloring as prayer and as spiritual practice.

“Readers of all ages, experience and religions will find this a fresh, invigorating and even exhilarating way to spend time with themselves and their Creator.” —Publisher's Weekly Starred Review


About the Author

Sybil MacBeth is the author of Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path to God (2007) and Praying in Color Kids’ Edition (2009). Praying in Color uses doodling and coloring as a way to get still and listen to God. Sybil combines her lifelong love of prayer with her experience as a community college mathematics professor to offer workshops and retreats throughout the U.S. and Canada. Her workshops, both prayerful and playful, engage people of varied learning styles. Sybil is married to Andy MacBeth, an Episcopal priest, and is the mother of two adult sons.
 
Praying in Color has been translated into Spanish, Italian and Korean. Her 2014 book The Season of the Nativity: Confessions and Practices of an Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany Extremist (Paraclete Press, Fall 2014) invites people to experience the richness of the holiday season at home.

A great addition to your art / response shelves:  This is part of Sybil MacBeth’s popular series praying in color. This new coloring book and guide allows anyone to quiet the mind and pray while creating something visual and inspired. The book includes an introduction to this style of prayer for those unfamiliar and 32 pages to color. We recommend introducing it to your circle as a new “work” on the shelves, showing your circle how to use it. You will need to take the book apart and place the individual coloring sheets on a tray or basket. Children can choose the page that is just right for them and begin to “pray in color.”
