Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
...aridities, then, make people walk with purity in the love of God.
St. John of the Cross
John urges us to accept “aridities” as a grace in prayer because they can make us “walk with purity in the love of God.” In your prayer today, ask that you will remain faithful even when you experience dryness or great distraction or restlessness.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
