Prayers of the Created
by Jim Wenman
Prayers of the Created is a collection of poems inspired through the author’s observation of God’s natural world.
Reminiscent of the great Impressionist artists, who used paint to capture the essence of the object rather than the subject’s specific details, these poems depict not only a scene or character but the thoughts and emotions felt by the writer when observing God’s world.
By evoking ideas, thoughts and impressions through these poems, the author encourages you to further explore God’s hand in creation and his purpose for the world, in his written word the Bible.
