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.
Everything else we do is a means to an end. But love is an end already, since God is love.
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
In one sense, our only “mission” is to love – God, others, and ourself - and in that loving we mirror God’s love to all whom we meet. As you pray today, seek only to love, with all your heart and mind and soul.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
