THUMB PRAYERS are handmade aids for your prayer life. Rub them with your thumb when you need a reminder of the Spirit’s presence in the world. Like me, they’re far from perfect. As I make them I pray for housing justice, as that is my prayer focus.
I began making THUMB PRAYERS when I was the Artist-in-Residence at St. Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Memphis for a church service where most of the congregants lived on the streets. I wanted to give folks something they could take home after the service to remind them of the experience.
