Praying with Art

"The Procession", by John August Swanson

While Lectio Divina is a method of praying with scripture, Visio Divina (Latin for “divine seeing”) is a method for praying with images or other media. While the Orthodox tradition has long practiced praying with images through icons, the western church, and Protestantism in particular, is less comfortable with this type of prayer.  But with our culture becoming more and more visually oriented, an intentional way of praying with images is needed now more than ever.  Read more about Visio Divina here.
