Wander: to walk or move in a leisurely, casual, or aimless way, to stroll, to ponder.
Lately, I have been doing much wandering, although mostly in my head. I guess you would actually call that reflecting?

I knew I would be leading prayer sets but I did not realize that the Lord would awaken an urgency in my heart for intercession.
