Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
The dark night with its aridities and voids is the means to the knowledge of God and self.
St. John of the Cross
For John, the dark night is a special opportunity to know oneself and God more intimately since it draws us to depend totally on God as we stumble in the darkness. Pray today that you can let go of control and allow God to lead you daily
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
