A Morning Prayer for Exercise
O Lord, creator of our bodies—bones and breath—create in me this day a care for my body and sustain me in proper physical exercise, a delight in walking and general fitness so as to conform my feet and my physique to better serve you and serve others. Grant me moments of solitude and leisure to walk, so that I may give attention to the world around me. Tire my body in this endeavor, so that in being tired I would experience sweet sleep this evening. Amen.
