The soul benefits of prayerwalking

What challenges your body, feeds your spirit and changes the world all at the same time?  Are you frustrated by your failed efforts to exercise regularly and spending regular, uninterrupted time in prayer?  Janet Holm McHenry found a way to trim her waistline and bulk up her prayer time through the simple experience of prayerwalking.


In her book, “PrayerWalk”, McHenry outlines the physical and spiritual benefits of a daily walk spent in prayer for others.  After suffering from depression, weight gain and exhaustion, she discovered a routine that changed her life as well as the lives of those around her.  She began walking around her neighborhood and downtown area praying for neighbors, business owners and government leaders.  She began noticing her weight decrease, her mood uplifted and her town revived.


Her book will motivate you to get up and get walking.  She will inspire you to stop thinking of yourself and start focusing on the needs of others and your community.  Also included in her book is a study guide and a 30-day challenge as well as a how-to guide on organizing a community prayerwalk event.

Take a walk with your Personal Trainer—get in better physical, mental and physical shape.
