How many times have you been in prayer, and then all of a sudden find yourself making a grocery list? Welcome to spacing out; something I know a lot about! Doodling is one activity that is said our brain can do along with something else. Doodling helps hold our attention!
Maintaining your undivided attention in prayer is vitally important. Prayer is a beautiful discipline. While you feel a pause in prayer, instead of giving up, find a page to doodle upon. While doodling, things you have almost forgotten will hopefully come to the forefront of your mind, and heart.
On top of a more focused mind, your doodles will soon form a masterpiece!
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10
