As I was getting out at the track to get in a 3 mile walk/run, I caught a glimpse of the finger rosary that was given to me on Mother’s Day at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. I was reminded that I used to pray the rosary as I walked around the track, and I wouldn’t stop walking until I prayed the entire rosary. I walked everyday and prayed the rosary everyday. When I graduate to a jog, I stopped taking the rosary with me, because as oddly as it sounds, I couldn’t think, pray and concentrate on breathing at the same time.

For those of you saying that praying the rosary is only for Catholics, you’re wrong. All of you prayer warriors, those trying to increase their prayer lives and those wanting to pray but having a hard time getting started, try using the rosary. Even if you don’t learn the prayers that we Catholics use to pray the rosary (also used to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy), use it to reflect, meditate and to simply stay focused.
An easy way to pray is to pray with A.C.T.S.
Adoration – give all praise, glory and honor to God;
Confession – confess your sins and ask for forgiveness;
Thanksgiving – there are so many reasons to be thankful that one may need another rosary if each bead were used just in this area;
Supplication – make your requests known to God – no matter how big or small.
