Prayer Walk by Janet Holm McHenry

Prayer Walk by Janet Holm McHenry is an easy to read primer on how to jump-start both a prayer life and a fitness routine. McHenry shares reasons why walking is an excellent way to boost your health, lose weight, gain strength and how to turn an ordinary stroll into a life-changing pursuit of God. She teaches how to pray, why to pray and gives ideas of things to pray for. The back of the book has a study guide and gives instruction for a group leader to start a prayer walking group of her own.

This little book is big on information. Published by WaterBrook Press, the back reads:

Challenge your body. Feed your spirit. Change the world.

Ask any Christian woman about her most recent New Year's resolutions, and you'll likely find that "exercise regularly" and "pray more" were at the top of her list. We all long to look and feel our best, to live actively and healthfully. More than that, we desire to connect intimately with our God. Yet physical health and spiritual growth often take a backseat to the urgent demands of grocery shopping and bill paying, time with friends and family, and long hours at the office.

It's time to exercise your prayer life.

Thirteen years ago, author Janet Holm McHenry suffered from depression, weight gain and exhaustion. Then she began a prayerwalk routine that not only transformed her life but also profoundly impacted the lives of those around her. Learn how you, too, can set out on a journey to increased energy, better health, and greater joy--and experience a rich, full prayer ministry that will have a lasting impact on your loved ones and community.
