A Jogger's Prayer

Lord, I thank you so much for this quiet country road. As I jog along the dirt amongst the paddocks and trees, help me to appreciate this haven. Help me to think of others who aren’t as lucky to have a safe environment. Please give them inner peace, even in tumultuous times.

Thank you for this quiet time. There’s no sensational news story, no blaring radio or telephone demanding my attention. Thank You for the opportunity to converse with You in peace. And please help others who lead busy lives to find a ‘quiet place’ with you today.

Dear Lord, please help me up this hill. Whenever I feel I can’t make it, help me to rely on you. As you jog beside me and strengthen me physically, please help me to see that you will sustain me in all other areas of my life – mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Please strengthen my sore knee and help me to persevere. And please uphold everyone else with whatever “thorn in the flesh” they may have.

Thank You so much for this easy stretch of terrain. Help me not to forget you when the hard sections are over. Help me not to take the good times of life for granted, and please remind me to rely on you all the time, whatever the circumstances.

Lord, I thank You for helping me to see clearly. Without my glasses, all the fine details are just a blur. But as long as I can see the ‘big picture’ everything’s okay. Help me to keep my eyes on Your larger plan also.
