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.
In what better way can you, when together, use your tongues than in the praises of God since we have so many reasons for praising Him?
St. Teresa of Avila
Teresa urges her community members to remember all the reasons they have for praising God when they are together in community prayer. Pray today, that whether praying alone or with a community, you will always praise God for the gifts you have received.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
