Would you like to enjoy more peace, joy and purpose in your life?
Let’s face it. We could all use a little less stress and chaos in our lives. As a wife, homeschooling mom of four and a business owner I have plenty on my to do list every day but I have found a way to live more peacefully, joyfully and purposefully through a daily prayer walk.
A prayer walk is simply connecting spiritually and talking to God while taking a walk. Typically a prayer walk is done with two or more people who walk together and pray out loud for one or more specific topics or themes but I have adapted the idea to use personally.
Every morning after my “brain dump” (read How to Do a Brain Dump here), I head out the door to walk around my neighborhood or a local park. As soon as I start walking I focus my inner self on God and ask the Holy Spirit what He would have me pray for that day.
I usually pray specific prayers for my family, my business, my friends and my neighborhood. I talk to God about my day and listen for any insight He gives me. While He doesn’t speak audibly to me I have clear impressions in my mind and spirit when I open myself up to Him.
By using my exercise time to focus on my spirituality rather than listening to music or a podcast I experience much more peace and my days end up being much more productive.
Try it and let me know what you think.
