Art is prayer made visible


Art is prayer made visible
Music is prayer made audible
Dance is prayer embodied
But the greatest art we practice
Is the art of compassion
Which is prayer in action and service.

- Rev. Dr. Gina Rose Halpern, Founder and Co-Director of the Chaplaincy Institute

Every particle of our universe, every being, is a shell that contains sparks of holiness. Our task is to release each spark from the shell and raise it up, ultimately to return it to its original state. In each moment, we have the capacity to Raise Holy Sparks.
- Rabbi David Cooper

All great art is a visual form of prayer. - Sister Wendy Beckett

The stillness in art characterizes prayer, and the eye of the storm.
- Saul Bellow

Good art is a form of prayer. It's a way to say what is not sayable.
- Frederich Busch

He prayeth well, who loveth well,
Both man and bird and beast.
- Samuel Taylor Coleridge

In prayer it is better to have a heart without words
than words without a heart.
- Mahatma Gandhi

Art is a prayer, always was, always will be.
- Emily Mills

Today, like every other day, we wake up empty
and frightened. Don't open the door to the study
and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument.

Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and to make sajda *.

- Rumi


* sajda, means prostration
