Be still and allow yourself to be in the presence of God, who is always available to help us. Remember: ''For God all things are possible.'' Repeat three times. Exhale, letting go of all doubt you feel. Breathe in and recall that God will never leave your side.
I would not consider any spirituality worthwhile that wants to walk in sweetness and ease and run from the imitation of Christ.
St. John of the Cross
Walking in the footsteps of Jesus - through suffering and death to new life - is the way of true discipleship for John. Pray for the willingness to embrace the same path as Christ who suffered and died for all because of his great love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
