My faith has been the key to my success in fitness and in life. Prayer has gotten me through the toughest workouts and I still use it to get me through all the workouts that are in my future. My
favorite scripture to meditate on is Proverbs 14:23 "All hard work leads to a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.”
In the fitness world profit is progress (muscle gain, increased performance and weight loss) and poverty is being out of shape in any form or fashion. This prayer is one I use before every
workout to keep me motivated and working hard.
The Hard Work Prayer
Lord thank you for giving me the opportunity to push my body past its limits. Guide me through every rep of this workout as I strive to increase my performance and build my strength. Watch
over my muscles, joints, bones, tendons and organs, and keep them safe as I take on this routine. Keep me focus to stick with the routine from beginning to end, and allow my body to gain the
most from every exercise as I challenge myself to be better than my best.
In Jesus name I pray,
