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.
But these individuals do not find delight in the imagination wandering back and forth; rather, they are troubled about it on account of the disturbance it brings to that gratifying peace.
St. John of the Cross
Souls can be preoccupied about wanting to be peaceful in prayer, rather than attending to God who draws them nearer. As you pray today, focus on the One who loves you unconditionally and rest there.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
