Check in

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
Be still
Be
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.

Conversation Starter

As the inner noise within us quiets down, we are more able to center on God’s love. Use Psalm 46, “Be still and know that I am God,” for your prayer today, asking for that inner calm that increases your “loving knowledge of God.”
