Channeling our Creativity

We all have been made in the image of a creative God, and we mirror that divine creativity in millions of ways. Let’s pray today to find creative expressions to nourish our souls.


O imaginative Creator, help me embrace my own creativity
by revealing to me my unique ability to solve problems,
express emotions, portray experiences, invent solutions, and tell stories.
I praise you for making each human being to reflect you in a particular way.
Today, I will honor you by choosing to prioritize my imagination and live a creative life.


Put some form of creative expression into practice today. Even if you don’t think of yourself as “creative,” consider that any activity you engage in today has a creative aspect to it.

  1. Lord, because you have made me, I owe you the whole of my love; because you have redeemed me, I owe you the whole of myself; because you have promised so much, I owe you all my being. Moreover, I owe you as much more love than myself as you are greater than I, for whom you gave yourself and to whom you promised yourself. I pray you, Lord, make me taste by love what I taste by knowledge; let me know by love what I know by understanding. I owe you more than my whole self, but I have no more, and by myself I cannot render the whole of it to you. Draw me to you, Lord, in the fullness of love. I am wholly yours by creation; make me all yours, too, in love. (prayer of Anselm, 1033-1109 AD)

  2. This comment also helps me to be open to how others are channeling their creativity. Thank you for the beautiful thought and prayer!
