Prayer and Exercise: A Powerful Combination
Have you ever noticed how much better you feel after taking time to pray? Although many argue that there is no physical evidence of the power of prayer, those with faith know the benefits of prayer for themselves. When you are dealing with stress, exercise is one known way to minimize the impact of your stress on your health. I'd like to encourage to add prayer to your exercise routine. When you are taking a walk or doing your workout, it's a great time to pray.
Prayer can help clear your mind and give you the peace that allows you to focus on the most important things and people in your life. It empowers you to live joyfully in the midst of the storm. You might begin with a simple prayer of thanks as you work:
God, thank you for the strength to exercise. Thank you for the legs that enable me to walk wherever I want to go. Thank you for the breath that gives me life. Thank you for the eyes that enable me to see Your beautiful creation. Thank you for one more day of life!
So often, people exercise begrudgingly. But if you approach exercise as a time to connect spiritually and give thanks for the body you have been blessed with - on that gives you the freedom to do the many things you do daily, then exercise will become a joyous part of your day!
