A Prayer Card Artist - Pamela Bryan

Some creative practices have been around for a long time- like card making. What sets apart this artist is the time spent in prayer as she makes each card. Meet Pamela Bryan..

Here is Pamela in her studio- art room. She is very excited about a renewed enthusiasm about her card ministry. She prays over each card and the person receiving the card. She feels that card-making is a lost art and is especially blessed by the practice of creating prayer cards.

Pamela learned about Praying in Color and how the practice helps us to slow down, pay attention and deal with distractions. She began to instill these same principles in her card-making. She now has about 50 stamps that contain Scripture. The quiet time space allows her to listen for God’s direction and she is delighted with the joy that card,making brings her.

Pamela retires January 2020 and is looking forward to what she sees as her ministry calling. What if churches made their own cards for shut ins? and those needing a special touch of love and encouragement? In today’s world our greatest commodity is our time. A hand-made card signifies the gift of time. Pamela believes that the Lord has answered prayer for retirement time with both a hobby and a ministry. Sometimes Visual Faith isn’t really about adding in something totally new to your life in time and practice. Perhaps it is simply being open to the training of our own spirit, with the work of the Holy Spirit, with something you are already doing. The focus is different-so the result is different.  Simple card making becomes prayer cards.

Pamela adds a Bible verse to each card she makes. There is the physical use of crafting methods, but something supernatural happens when prayer covers both the making and the sending. It becomes a blessing to both the maker and the receiver under the direction of the Holy Spirit. She may not hear how the card was received- but she is faithful in answering the call - to send.
