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.
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?
