A Runner’s Prayer

09/10/2011

Dear God,
As I do my run today,
I want to thank you for giving me these legs
and heart and lungs and body to keep me doing what I love.
I ask YOU to run with me,
be the beat in my heart,
the strength in my legs
the air that I breathe,
the wind to push me,
the breeze to cool me off,
the sun to warm me,
I know you are with me.
Thanks for the moon that shines on my path,
and the stars – I know you keep me safe.
Thank you for the rain and showers,
as it cools me off and cleanses me,
or washes my tears when im out running sad.
Thank you for the trees and the scenery you’ve created,
the birds that chirp that while I run past that paces my every stride.
You and you creation inspires me to run.
Thank you for running with me everytime,
These strides I offer you Lord,
Amen.
