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.
God is my heaven here below. I live with him...If you would know him enough, you would love him. If you would stay with him for one hour, you would know heaven on earth.
St. Teresa of Jesus of the Andes
Take about an hour for an extended period of prayer today. Sit quietly and patiently in eager anticipation as the Holy Spirit fills your heart with God’s love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
