Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
In the midst of these aridities and straits, God frequently communicates to the soul, when it least expects, spiritual sweetness, a very pure love, and spiritual knowledge that is sometimes most delicate.
St. John of the Cross
Pray today to be open to the gifts of “spiritual sweetness, and a very pure love,” that God communicates to you even in the midst of your trials or difficulties in prayer.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
