Camino prayers. (10 days to Camino)

For 10 centuries, men and women have walked “The Way” mostly for religious reasons. On the Camino, they have sought blessings, paid penance, and looked for a closer relationship with God.

With that in mind, I’m going to try to use my time on the Camino to develop a deeper prayer life. Each day, I’ll focus my prayers on one or more of my family and friends. I’ll put the names of each day’s prayer subjects on the top of my shoes, so I see them over-and-over again as I walk. I’ll use that as a constant reminder to think about and pray for that day’s subjects.

Below is my prayer list. If I’ve forgotten you, and you would like to be included, please let me know. If possible, I’ll try to reach out to each day’s prayer subjects via text or email, when I’m on the Camino.

If you feel called to more prayer, maybe you could do the same thing while I’m on my hike. Build your own prayer list, and pray for them over this two and a half month period. If so, I’d appreciate it if you would include me in your list.

My flight leaves Sunday, August 14 around 9:00PM. If all goes as planned, next time you hear from me, I should be in France.

  1. Wishing you all the best (and remembering you in prayer!) as you prepare to depart on this amazing journey!

  2. Wow, good luck Bill. You are wise to have trained, walking yourself into shape would be miserable. Be prepared for what I call touring shock. On our bike trips the first week we were always hungry, couldn’t eat enough. And, of course, tired. It settled down after a week. You’ll do great. Looking forward to following your trip.

  3. Good luck on your adventure. I am excited you get to take this amazing journey. I will be praying for you.

  4. Bill, I feel so honored to be on your prayer list, especially as the 29th is also my birthday. I too have retired but much my time is taken up with eldercare so need patience and a gentle spirit is a need. I will be praying for safety, insight and definitely a renewal of your prayer life.

    1. I did not know it was your birthday! I appreciated your kindness to me in Hawaii. You will always hold a warm place in my heart.

  5. Hi Bill — what you are doing is so amazing! I’m not on LinkedIn much but I learned of your plan there and have been following your progress. A pilgrimage seems like a good transition into retirement. (I’m very near retirement myself.) I will pray for you and would like to be added to your prayer list if possible. Thanks.

  6. Bonjour Bill. Beautiful pilgrimage. I’ll keep you and your in my prayers. Thanks for sharing your journey. Congrats on your retirement & best of luck on your adventures.
