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.
Make my soul…Your cherished dwelling place, Your home of rest. Let me never leave You there alone, but keep me there all absorbed in You, in living faith, adoring You.
Bl. Elizabeth of the Trinity
As you pray today, use Psalm 62 for your reflection, especially verses 6-9: “My soul, be at rest in God alone, from whom comes my hope. God alone is my rock and my salvation…”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
