Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
Jesus, may I die a martyr for You. Give me martyrdom of the soul or of the body. Ah, rather, give me both.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Nothing was too much for Therese to offer to God, her one and only love and her total preoccupation. As you pray today, ask God to draw you closer so that God becomes your only priority.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
