God's presence is like the breath. It is always here with us, keeping us going, but we do not notice or give it much attention. We ignore our breathing as we often ignore God. So it is with me. Now running is like prayer. I suppose any form of exercise might qualify. In running I definitely notice my breathing. In prayer I notice the God presence, at least most of the time. Prayer is calling myself to attention to the Presence. So maybe when I run, I am really praying? I am going for an hour run in a few minutes. If I suspect pain and suffering are approaching, I will definitely be praying.
