projectblessed Prayer Pledge Day 16

We are over two weeks into building prayer intentionally into our days. Are you feeling refreshed as 2016 begins to build momentum? What can you do to foster your relationship with God to last all year?

That’s what I was thinking about while writing today’s devotional — being able to recognize what I need in my spiritual life to keep my soul whole and healthy.

Sometimes, though, these can be basic material things! As Catholics, we honor the Incarnation by recognizing the unity of body and soul. Today, do something for your physical body in addition to your spiritual self.

What can you make time for in your day?

  • Eat food that nourishes your body
  • Move in a way that feels invigorating — walk, stretch, swim, or whatever feels right
  • Rest or nap to recharge
  • Spend time outdoors

Comment below with your thoughts:

How does your relationship with your body impact your relationship with your soul? How can you view every facet of yourself in harmony?

or, simply answer:

Did you pray today?

    I can feel myself slipping — but knowing that I’m held accountable by you guys means everything. How is everyone doing?

    Well I am stinking at this to be quite honest. I did go to adoration yesterday for 20ish minutes, but my prayer life is just not there, ya know? Confession would probably be a good kick in the pants. And being on social media less. I feel like this would be way easier to develop these habits if I had a coach to tell me what to do . . . good thing my spiritual direction of sorts starts up again soon. Keeping you all in my prayers – this is hard!

    To be honest, it’s hard. If I cut out more social media, I could make more time for prayer.

    Walked outdoors then fellowship w/ friends afterwards. Listening to ???while walking.
    I could definitely lessen amount of time I’m on social media. Been sort of thinking of fasting from Twitter during the upcoming Lent. Eep!! ???. It might help me create better balance in my life.
