Prayer Walkin …. This is something that I love to do. I have been doing this for many many years. Since I always loved walking, it was obvious that when I became a follower of Christ, I would be walking and praying at the same time.
I find that praying (talking) to our Lord while I walk sets the mode as if I was actually walking with a friend (which we are friends of God) and talking with them. And this is exactly what I do when I prayer walk. I am actually walking with Christ as I talk with Him about my day, my week, whats been happening, whats been on my mind, my hurts, my concerns AND I talk with our Lord about others & Pastors who are in need of prayer (I put out prayers boxes in our apartment complex laundry room. Click here to watch video on how I make prayer boxes ).
We have a great trail in our apartment complex that I love to spend time on. Its not to long but its a place where I can be alone with the Lord and be in His presence. We also have many lakes that I walk around. We have awesome nature also …. I love to hear the birds sing praises to our Lord as I am walking. Being in nature and outside brings me to such a closeness to our Lord, I feel so much closer to Him outside rather then inside.
Another benefit other then spiritual health …. is also physical health. Getting into a pattern of DAILY Prayer Walking (along with Daily Bible Study) will help you to get rid of stress and those extra pounds. Faith & Health go hand in hand and we should take care of both our spiritual & physical health.
So get out there and spend time with the Lord DAILY so you can build up your relationship with the Lord & your physical Health. Pray without ceasing & take care of the Lords temple which is your body.
I’m leaving right now to get my “Prayer Walkin” On!
