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.
[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.
