Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
If anything pleases God, it is the exaltation of the soul.
St. John of the Cross
John exclaims with confidence that nothing pleases God more than “the exaltation of the soul” - a soul that experiences bliss, delight, joy, happiness! In his writings, John tells us that the way to this exaltation is making God our only priority. As you pray today, ask that you choose God alone.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
