PRAYING IN MOTION

PRAYING IN MOTION By Mary Eide

It would be easier if one person instructed the movements and read the prayers, so you could just move and pray.  Find a way to do this as you carry out your stretches to Pray in Motion.

INHALE DEEPLY through your nose, pushing your diaphram out
EXHALE DEEPLY through your mouth
(Repeat this two times)

Glorious Father, we breathe in the goodness you bring to our lives and rid ourselves of those things that come between us.  Fill our hearts, minds and souls with your wisdom and your will for our lives.

ROLL HEAD SIDE TO SIDE, but not all the way around

Father, help us to relax and not worry about the future.  Keep our minds free from our fears, so we can focus on doing service for you.

ROLL SHOULDERS, forward four times, backwards four times

Dear Jesus, you saved us from our sins.  Thank you.  Help us now to unload unnecessary burdens from our shoulders.  Keep us mindful of your promise to bear all things for us.

TWIST WAIST AND REACH, slowly

Almighty Saviour, help us to reach out to those in need.  Remind us that our brothers and sisters still need to be fed, clothed, taught to read, and held in loving arms.

BIG HUG FOR YOURSELF

MARCH
These legs have carried us on many a journey for your service.  Please allow them to march on for you Lord.  Believing in your causes and trusting in your protection.

KNEE BEND WITH DEEP BREATH FOLLOWED BY ARM SWEEP

Holy Spirit, you bring us power and understanding.  Help us to spread the good news to others.  Open our minds to the lessons we've been taught.  Light within us a burning  desire to witness together.

BREATHE DEEPLY: INHALE, PUSHING YOUR DIAPHRAM OUT; EXHALE SLOWLY
