Consider one of the many names of God—Lord, Sophia, Yahweh, for example.
What is the meaning of the name you chose?
Take a moment to meditate on its significance.
Silently call to God in your prayer using that name.
Repeat this name while you take several deep breaths.
Continue to breathe slowly as you imagine God moving closer to you.
Greet God as you would a friend.
“If you decide for Christ it could cost you your life; consider carefully what you promise.”
– Saint Edith Stein
What does it mean to you to promise your life to Christ?
What percentage of my life have I promised?
25%? 50% 75% 0%?
Is that enough?
How might I nudge it up a point higher?
Open your heart.
Allow yourself to be vulnerable to the power and influence of God’s love, which surrounds you.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
