Christian Northeast’s Prayer Paintings Illustrate Prayer Requests Found on the Internet
“Pray for me” is one of those phrases that get thrown around a lot, especially over the internet. When illustrator Christian Northeast began scrounging message boards for prayer requests, he wasn’t on a mission to make fun of religion (well, maybe a little), he was simply fascinated by the types of requests people would seek from strangers. From dental appointments to computer repair, you have to admit the anomaly of prayer requests is kind of intriguing. Prayer Requested is a compilation of all 70 illustrations of Northeast’s “prayer paintings.” You can buy the book from Drawn and Quarterly or view the full gallery here.
