Bishop Carlo Rapanut on a prayer run

My prayer journey and countdown has begun! If you are the praying type, would you accompany me in prayer? If you run, bike, swim, walk or hike, log those miles with me and share a comment on my daily posts. If you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, read this: #PrayerRun on Facebook.

In the first week, I ran a total of 36.3 miles in prayer for the following ministries:

#PrayerRun Day 1

#prayerrun #ak2az Day 1: It’s always nice to be the first on the fresh snow! Did 6 miles praying for the 6 Extension Ministers of the Desert Southwest Conference serving as chaplains: 3 in hospitals, 1 in a correctional complex, 1 in the Navy and 1 in the Army. #aumc2dsc #anc2phx #reflectionsofarunningreverend

#PrayerRun Day 4

#prayerrun #ak2az Day 4: 8ish mile run after worship and the rain in prayer for the 5 deacons and 3 deaconesses & home missioners of the Desert Southwest Conference who are in a variety of ministry settings within and outside local churches. And if you need a special prayer today, claim the “ish” mile for yourself. For no concern and prayer is too “ish” for God. #aumc2dsc #anc2phx #reflectionsofarunningreverend
