Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
I really believe that whoever humbles oneself and is detached...will receive the favor of this water from the Lord and many other favors.
St. Teresa of Avila
The more you recognize your need for God, rather than to be preoccupied by other things, the more will your thirst be quenched by living waters. Like the Samaritan woman, seek only the Christ, the Living Water, in your prayer today.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
