The First Prayer for Christian Fitness


Dear Lord,

You are my Creator, and you are my Sustainer. 

You have carefully watched over me all my life, and you even watched over me before I was born.

I praise you for the magnificent body that you have given me.

Lord, I ask that you would bring me the wisdom, motivation, and ability to properly exercise my body. Stir me up to power walk and to do cardio workouts. Stir me up to do lunges, and crunches, and lift weights for the glory of God!

I declare that I will get excited about training my body.

I will rise up and say, "I am going to have a strong body, that is fit and ready to serve the Lord."

Amen!

Fitness Television  

I enjoy exercising with fitness routines I do by television.

~

I like to exercise along with a
DVD fitness workout
or with a
Christian television exercise workout show.


One of the shows I enjoy is

Faithful Workouts


Faithful Workouts may be a little too much

if you are just starting out.

If it is too much for you, check out Jennifer Brindley further down.


Note:

Any time you are starting or changing your exercise habits,

you need to check with your doctor.

Your doctor's advice is vital in helping you

make good choices.

Tips to Consider


Tips to Consider

For those who do not like to exercise:


*    Consider making a reasonable goal of how many days a week - and how much time per day -  you will exercise.

*    Be careful not to make goals that you won't be able to attain, and thus you will get discouraged.  (Accomplishing goals - even small ones will bring an uplift to your emotions.)

*    Give yourself encouragement every time you exercise.

*    Also give yourself small goals during your exercise time. Create small goals that you can easily attain, and thus you will feel good about yourself and about exercising.


What does the Word of God say?

1 Timothy 4:8 the Message

Workouts in the gymnasium are useful, but a disciplined life in God is far more so, making you fit both today and forever. You can count on this. Take it to heart.

New Century Version

Training your body helps you in some ways, but serving God helps you in every way by bringing you blessings in this life and in the future life, too.

New Life Version

Growing strong in body is all right but growing in God-like living is more important. It will not only help you in this life now but in the next life also.

Phillips New Testament

Bodily fitness has a certain value, but spiritual fitness is essential both for this present life and for the life to come.

ERV - Easy To Read Version

Training your body helps you in some ways. But devotion to God helps you in every way. It brings you blessings in this life and in the future life too.


Psalm 119:32 TLB

says

If you will only help me to want your will,
I will follow your laws even more closely.


Commentary on Psalm 119:32 

Wow! God directs us to pray and ask him to change us - enlarge and transform us - so that we want what he wants for us!
God is telling us that that is possible!


The prayer below is based on Psalm 119:32



The Third Prayer for Christian Fitness



Dear God,

Your Word is wonderful. Your Word builds hope!

Psalm 119 even tells me that I can grow to want your will!

I can grow to a place where I want to exercise!

Lord, help me to grow to want your will for my body, so that I will exercise my body properly.

Amen
