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.
Jesus, You are the star that leads me on; You know that Your dear face is my heaven here below.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Expressing her love of Jesus in poetic terms, Therese speaks of Jesus as the star leading her and describing his face as her “heaven here below.” In your prayer today, address Jesus in your own way, using images that speak to you of his presence.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
