Years ago, the Lord showed me how to pray His Word over my time of exercise.  I wrote this prayer on a card and had it in front of my treadmill – and I prayed it every time I would exercise.   This prayer is so powerful because it is based on the truth of God’s Word.  The scriptures listed at the bottom are all included in the prayer.  I know the prayer has inspired others and I trust it inspires you too!

Father God,

I present my body to You as a living sacrifice.  I offer this time of exercise to You as a time of worship – to glorify You in my body.  I purpose in my heart to sow self control, endurance and faithfulness, and I believe I receive a hundred fold return.  I earnestly expect to become more and more like Jesus;  therefore, I press on toward that goal for the prize of my high calling.  I decree that with every step I take, I am increasing in health, strength and discipline.  Thank you for anointing me to succeed as I prove Your good and perfect will in my life.

In Jesus’ name, Amen
