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.
I do not wish to be troubled with passing things. My Beloved will take the place of all these. I wish to walk in the groves of His love, where no one can intrude.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Profound experience of her Beloved led Therese to desire solitude where she could commune alone with him. Spend time with your Beloved in prayer today, “where no one can intrude.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
