We pray the LIFE Runners creed before we start.
Then we also pray as we run.
At about 10 minutes into my regular run (4 days per week), I say, “For all those on my prayer list” and then I begin my prayers.
I run as a prayer.
As a LIFE Runner, I offer up my running as a prayer.
The power of prayer and sacrifice is immeasurable.
As car accident victim, Katie Lentz said, “Pray out loud.” Read her incredible story that was dubbed the Missouri Miracle, here.
Thankful for the ability to run.
This is our full team (Oct 2012) from all parts of the country…The National LIFE Runners (1,500 members strong as of today).
As I said, I run with a pack…they are the best! Watch this video of the Mid-MO portion (my local chapter) of the LIFE Runners Across the Country Relay
Be inspired and then join us!
The LIFE Runner Creed
We believe in the dignity of all human life from conception to natural death. We run as a Prayer, that children in the womb may be protected, so that they may be born and welcomed into the Christian community by baptism. We run to build Endurance, for the race is long and we must keep our eyes fixed on You Lord. We run for Awareness, that the eyes of all people may be transformed and see every human life as a reflection of Your glory Lord. We run for Charity, to provide Truth for mothers and fathers tempted to abort their child…and healing support for post-abortive women, men and families. We run to End abortion, for Christ has destroyed the power of death, and therefore the power of abortion. Guard us all, born and unborn, with Your PEACE, Lord. For in You, life is victorious. We pray and run in Your name, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
