Good physical workouts should strengthen the heart. Spiritual workouts should do that too. The Bible talks about “the heart” over a thousand times! But Scripture isn’t talking about the physical organ that pumps blood in our chest. It is referring to our hidden center, the dwelling place where we live. One great way to strengthen our hearts is the prayer of thanksgiving and praise.
