Liturgical Prayer, Lectio Divina, and Intercession

Imagery can be enriching to all forms of prayer invoking our imaginations allowing us to draw deeper into prayer. Using images in prayer allows us to use our imagination to communicate more closely with God and to rest in His awareness. During liturgical prayer, we can use images of the last supper and the crucifixion to help focus the mind on the sacrifice of the mass. Images of scenes from life of Christ and the Blessed Mother can be used during various times of the liturgical year. In lectio devina, we meditate on the scriptures. Imagery can help call to mind the scenes form the scriptures. Images of the saints can help us to focus on the live of the saints and how God called them.
