Book Review: Prayer Walk
In my quest to exercise for the next 31 days, I was intrigued when I had the opportunity to read and review a book that encompasses both your exercise life and your spiritual life.
In PrayerWalk: Becoming a Woman of Prayer, Strength, and Discipline by Janet Holm McHenry, the author talks about how she started and uses her prayer walk routine to help her get over her depression and lethargy from being overweight. McHenry uses deepening her spiritual relationship with God as a major part of her discipline. She talks about her personal journey, why she began to prayer walk, how it changed her relationships with herself and with others, her challenges and encouragement to start your own prayer walk.
Her book also includes a study guide if you would like to lead a group of prayer walkers, as well as a guide of how to organize a community prayer walk. She also includes a 30 day prayer walk challenge, where she offers a prayer focus, fitness challenge, and a place for notes each day.
I was inspired after reading this. Not necessarily to become a faithful prayer walker but to add more of a spiritual aspect to my exercise life. I have a lot of fear of walking alone outside so I am going to try to apply some of her ideas to my indoor exercises.
Overall, this was a n inspiring and encouraging book, especially for those who feel like they have their way physically and spiritually.
