Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
...a person obtains in this night these four benefits: the delight of peace; a habitual remembrance of God, and solicitude concerning him; cleanness and purity of soul; and the practice of virtue.
St. John of the Cross
“Night” brings the soul gifts that prepare the soul for eternal union with the Beloved. Pray today for acceptance of the “night” and with gratitude for the gift of relationship with the Beloved.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
