Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using these words of praise, pray slowly:
My God, I love you with all my heart, I praise and thank you...
Repeat several times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
Just be with God.
The soul sees clearly that another greater Lord than itself governs that castle. And this brings it deep devotion and humility.
St. Teresa of Avila
When a soul humbly acknowledges God as the Lord, it no longer needs to act as its own master that “governs that castle.” In your prayer today, recite, “Lord have mercy,” slowly repeating it as needed during your time of prayer.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
