Be still and allow yourself to be in the presence of God, who is always available to help us. Remember: ''For God all things are possible.'' Repeat three times. Exhale, letting go of all doubt you feel. Breathe in and recall that God will never leave your side.
If a person is to enter the second dwelling places [of the castle], it is important that he strive to give up unnecessary things and business affairs. Each one should do this in conformity with his state in life.
St. Teresa of Avila
As you pray today, ask God to give you a spirit of abandonment of all that does not lead you to greater intimacy.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
