40 Ways to Pray – Exercising

Day 28 – Pray while Exercising

I am not the most avid exercise person you will ever meet, but I do try to work out three or four times a week.  We recently joined a fitness center and I love to get in a good workout when time allows.

When I workout I am usually by myself whether in the gym or walking.  So I have a little time to myself and my thoughts.  So I try to turn them to a time of listening to God.

I find that I am more able to just listen while working out, because my mind is already occupied with what I am physically doing.  But it doesn’t take much to let my mind fill the gaps with asking God where do I need to be today?  What do I need to be doing?

If you are a person who likes to exercise, try just listening to God the next time your mind has some down time.

My Prayer for Today

Thank you Jesus for giving me the ability to physically work out and strengthen my body.  Please help me listen to You as I begin my physical exercise, and let my mind be exercised by You!  In the name of Jesus I pray.
