Lord, Teach Us to Pray by Ron DiCianni

Lord, Teach Us to Pray by Ron DiCianni

This religious artwork by Ron DiCianni portrays a mother teaching her son how to pray. The illuminated color of the cross formed by the intersection of light contrast with the bold colors in the background behind the mother and child as they share a tender moment snuggled together in a rocking chair. The boy’s intense concentration in prayer and the mother’s calm loving expression is reflective of how prayer time is a special time of personal connection to each other and to God.
