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.
Jesus made me understand that only in obedience was I pleasing to Him.
St. Therese of Lisieux
The biblical meaning of “obedience” implies a close relationship to God, rather than a rule-based understanding. The believer is called to listen and respond to God’s call to live a holy life – what Therese is really describing. As you pray today, listen to God’s voice in the context of your loving relationship with God.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
