Breath prayer

Did you know there is a way of praying known as “The Breath Prayer”?  When you breathe in you say “Lord Jesus” and when you breathe out you say  “have mercy”.  You may choose your own words, but the point is that prayer can be as natural and necessary as breathing in and out.  With few syllables you may express your hope, your desire, your need, your love…to grow in faith.  Here are a few examples:

“Holy one”  “Heal me”

“Loving God”  “Find me”

“Mystery”  “Live in me”

What words might come to you as you breathe in and out today?  Try praying them…before, during or after your work out!
