Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
For, in the end, people must always live with fear until you give them true peace and bring them there where that peace will be unending.
St. Teresa of Avila
Until you, O Lord, calm and allay our fears, we will not have “true peace” that only you can give. Pray today for that lasting peace that comes as gift from You alone.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
