[The above picture is Katie Torwalt's. A singer and worship pastor from California and I love it so much I saved it from her twitter (@katietorwalt), I plan using some of the concept at my next photo-shoot]
Photograph is like prayer
Prayer like a photograph
We freeze time
We have an experience
A celebration with the divine
Wait before I indulge you with heavy poetry
Are your times with Him moments to remember or moments to endure?
Do you nod it off with a doze or look at the time several times to see how long you’ve been there
This is the idea of photograph; that those moments of communion are frozen on some blind spots of our hearts illuminating the inner room with bright colors
Life lights up, soul is at absolute UN-understandable peace and you can’t wait to go back.
Have you had a photograph you wanted to tear up, burn and throw into a bottomless sea
Have you? Cause I have
And have you had a photograph you just wanted to keep, treasure, love cause it reminds you of love in its purest form
Have you? Cause I have too
But wait if we have these two types of photographs we will notice that the difference isn’t the material but the people and faces in the picture.
In prayer we take photographs with God
And if we want to keep them or burn, it all hinges on this:
The photograph you took last with God; who was background and who was the camera focused on?
Cause the answer determines a picture kept and a picture torn.
When the idea of prayer like a photograph came to me, honestly I found it quite hilarious. Have you ever seen prayer like a photograph before? And what makes a great picture (or prayer) ? :)
