A prayer after thirty minutes on the treadmill

On nights when

Oreos cookies and Snickers candy bars

(and whatever other sweet snacks

may be on sale)

mightily call us,

we thank you God

for your gentle, forceful Holy Spirit

who nudges us to the gym

and meets us on the treadmill.

We thank you for

family and friends

who affirm and support

our response to the Holy Spirit’s work.

May we listen ever more intently

to your Holy Spirit

who calls us to care for one another,

to care for creation,

and to care four ourselves.

May we listen

and may we respond more faithfully,

we pray in Jesus’ name.
