Description http://youtu.be/Scuy0Sj7JgY is the link to the hymn by Ricky Dillard that accompanies the verbal prayer below, expressed I. The painting below:Holy Spirit you are falling, falling, falling down, bringing celestial comfort and protection to your most vulnerable children. Though we may move mountains by our faith, we call instead for your swift descent from Heaven, to those are desperate for your aid. Work in us and through us, to speak life to words and wounds that deaden tender hearts. Give unreasonable hope to those who have been utterly defeated. Bathe us in the Light of your Love. Clothe the discarded and the degraded with the warmth and mercy of your embrace. Restore a sense of dignity and belonging to those who have endured unfathomable cruelty.Above all, deliver children, whose eyes once danced with wonder, in faces now fallen in dismay. And heal those wounded places that still live inside of us. We submit ourselves to the peace you left us, not of this world. Fall,down, down, down, upon us now and always, that we may be instruments of your peace.
Tacoma Prayer-Painter Member Since February 2015 Artist Statement Many cultures make art as a way to focus energy to a prayer. I formerly served as a hospital chaplain. I know though, that you don't have to be in a hospital bed to feel like you're dying. In the spirit of mercy and compassion, I hope to serve people as your chaplain ,by painting you prayers, with all that is in me.
