Lynne Babb’s post on Creative Prayer While Walking (HERE) is music to the ears of those of us who like the idea of CP’s “Movin’ and Prayin’ ” (HERE). One particularly noteworthy commentary of Lynn’s post is part of a foreward she wrote for another person’s book:
Christians have long underemphasized the significance of the body, and I am thrilled that in recent years Christians have begun to rediscover spiritual practices based in the body, including fasting, pilgrimage, walking a labyrinth, and the stations of the cross. Friends increasingly tell me they are finding joy in a variety of bodily positions while praying.
Movement can effectively enhance prayer. Perhaps today will offer an opportunity to try some “thinking in the presence of God” as Lynne describes it or another of CP’s “Movin’ & Prayin’ “ activities?
- Want some listening pleasure related to this topic? Maybe Nat King Cole singing Ev’ry Time I Feel the Spirit (HERE)?
- Or maybe a quick grin with Peanuts talking about Prayer in School HERE?
Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit!
