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.
[The Lord] always gives much more than we deserve by giving us consolations far greater than those we find in the comforts and distractions of life.
St. Teresa of Avila
Teresa urges us to let go of preoccupation with daily distractions and comforts and focus rather on the Lord, who brings us “much more than we deserve.” Seek the Lord, your God, with your whole heart in your prayer today.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
