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.
How miserable this life in which we live! …the harm done to us by our failure to understand well this humility and self-knowledge…self-knowledge is the most important thing for us.
St. Teresa of Avila
A humble heart makes us aware of our total dependence upon God. Pray today to own your need for God so that your “miserable” life is transformed into a life of praise and thanks
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
