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.
Only one attachment...to which the spirit is actually or habitually bound is enough to hinder the experience...of the delicate and intimate delight of the spirit of love, which contains eminently in itself all delights.
St. John of the Cross
Let go of anything that claims your full attention so that you are free for that greatest delight, “the spirit of love…” Pray today for this great grace!
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
