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.
It is in that soul in which less of its own appetites and pleasures dwell that he dwells more alone, more pleased, and more as though in his own house, ruling and governing it.
St. John of the Cross
As the soul detaches itself from “its own appetites and pleasures,” there is more and more room for God. Pray today, that God will make you a pleasing dwelling place.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
