A Pre-Workout Prayer
Because God set all things into motion, it's fitting to worship Him through exercise.
Before you start your workout, say this prayer:
Lord, I come to you as I prepare to exercise. Because You've given me life and the ability to move, I will honor You with my body and mind. I am present in this moment. I center my thoughts upon Your strength and invite Your Spirit to dwell within me. I breathe You in. Be my guide and energy. Cushion my strides. Fuel my repetitions. Give me the guts to move with intention and intensity. Help me overcome discouragement and fatigue. I will complete more than I believe I'm capable of because anything is possible with You (Matthew 19:26).
To God be the glory. Amen.
Complete your workout with these intra-workout and post-workout prayers, and use this exercise recovery prayer for in between workouts, when you’re sore, while you’re soaking in an Epsom salt bath, on walks, during stretches, as you lie down to sleep, or on the Sabbath.
