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.
For when the sensory delight and gratification coming from things are quenched, neither the devil, nor the world, nor sensuality has arms or power against the spirit.
St. John of the Cross
As the soul experiences God’s purification in the night of the spirit, its thirsts are quenched and God alone becomes its delight and gratification. In your prayer today, thank God for satisfying your deepest desires.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
