Prayer Runner part 6

3 things I prayed for on my run today:

1. For my little village of Riedlingen and specifically my landlord that they may see God’s glory and believe. 

2. For my Aunt’s visit with me (happening now) to be good for her and I. 

3. For the leadership training I’m going to in just over a week that it be productive and insightful.

So, I’m trying something new. I tend to try new things a lot, and then I let them slide, but I am really hoping to do this on a regular basis. The idea was inspired by my good friend who would post a picture of something from his run, which mostly ended up being his sweaty face in a post-run selfie, and then posted what he thought about while running. I tend to listen to music while running, but instead what I decided to try is to take a picture while running, who knows what of, and then post on Instagram and maybe here too, but I was praying about while running.

The goal isn’t for me to boast about my prayer life, because there are far more things in my life worthy of boasting about before my prayer life, but rather it is for people to see that they are being prayed for and to keep me accountable to myself to pray while I run. What else do I have to do?

So, my goal is to pray and then post about three things while I run. Most likely it will be the first half of my run, because the second half is typically only one prayer…”please God, let me keep breathing.”

So here was yesterday’s run and prayers. I hope you enjoy these! I may not post them on the blog every time (unless you all really like them), but you can always find them on my Instagram (@jacobjcoon).
