Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
If you should at times fall, don't become discouraged and stop striving to advance. For even from this fall God will draw out some good.
St. Teresa of Avila
Always trusting in God’s compassion and mercy, Teresa urges us to persevere in “striving to advance,” knowing that God can draw good and help us learn even when we fall. As you pray today, approach God with this same confidence
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
