  • Description: This glossary is intended for those who believe they have a mandate over their life to create intercessory art, a lifededicated to healing.Additionally, this glossary serves as a rumination on the intercessory art practice of David Capra. From water births tosausage dogs, from the Land of Oz to the prophetic realm, it intends to provide a practical guide to those who wish tobirth forth an intercessory art practice. It is considered that this document be used concurrently as a directory andmanual; it offers advice, warning and encouragement.Using Capra’s work as a motive and motif, you will be able to navigate the full potential of an art practice that trulyseeks to serve others by looking beyond itself. A Guide to Intercessory Art is therefore a response to the spirit of thisage. This glossary will empower the reader to identify problems they see in the world around them and inspire them toaddress these problems using their own artistic gifts. It is held as self-evident that much of an artist’s inspiration comesfrom the prophetic realm, a place that is more than a fanciful idea and for many reasons eludes easy articulation. Whenstudying this text, it is hoped one will gain a small impression or encounter one side of its ever-changing contours, evenjust for a moment.Upon reading this work it is envisioned that artists in their multitudes will pick up their mantles, walk forth into theirpurpose, embracing a fruitful life and nourishing many on the way.
