Pain banished by prayer
Originally appeared on spirituality.com
Two summers ago, I went for my usual evening jog around our neighborhood. It was an enjoyable way to unwind after a long day at the office. The terrain there is hilly, so once around the block was enough for me. When I got back home, I bent down to untie my shoelaces, but then I could hardly stand upright because of a pain in my lower back.
I couldn’t imagine what brought this on. I was a seasoned jogger so my body was used to this level of activity. I even ran the occasional 5K race. “I probably just pulled a muscle,” I thought to myself.
