Prayer Ideas: On a walk?

The poet Dorothy Frances Gurney wrote:

Kiss of the sun for pardon.
Song of the birds for mirth.
You’re closer to God’s heart in a garden
Than any place on earth.

Many of us spend much of our days indoors; in the home or in the office. Even ten minutes in a green space – even the busiest cities have parks – can bring calm and peace to an otherwise hectic day.

Can you find God more easily, when the calm of being in nature can slow down our hectic lives?
