Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
For it is very certain that in emptying ourselves of all that is creature and in detaching ourselves from it for the love of God, the same Lord will fill us with Himself.
St. Teresa of Avila
As you pray today, seek to empty your life of all that is not God and know that “the Lord will fill you with Himself.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
