We are running out of patience, Lord,
tired of the in and out,
from the shoreline to the deep
and back again,
weary from the labor-intensive work
that feels as if it is fruitless.
Strengthen our resolve, we pray,
and renew our spirits,
that we may have the physical
and emotional strength
to go where you send us.
We are running out of resources, Lord,
as is evident by our empty nets
and our anxious pressing.
We long to hear words of comfort
We need a miracle.
Bless us with net-breaking abundance,
and restore to us the hope of a future
beyond this long and languishing moment,
for the sake of our families
and our communities.
We are aware of our unworthiness, Lord,
and we kneel at your feet in awe
Whatever you ask of us,
we will do.
Wherever you go,
we will follow.
Cast out our fear,
and lead us beyond our perceived limits
to places of unimagined reward
according to your will.
Julie participated in the 25th Seminar for Certified Zentangle(R) Teacher Training in June, 2019, trained by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. In addition to creating art as a personal spiritual practice, Julie also incorporates the Zentangle(R) method in Prayer Art Retreats in a variety of contexts, including church groups, friend gatherings, and at a local art gallery.
