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.
For a long time Jesus and [I] had looked at each other and understood. The day of my First Communion, our meeting could not be called a mere glance; it was a fusion.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Even as a child, Therese sensed the deep intimacy between Jesus and her. In your prayer today, express your gratitude for the gift of his presence in your life.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
