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.
Far from resembling those saints who practiced all sorts of austerities from childhood, my penance consisted in breaking my self-will, keeping back a sharp reply, doing little kindnesses to those about me, but considering these deeds as nothing.
St. Therese of Lisieux
As you pray today, ask the Holy Spirit what practice(s) you need to put into place, to turn over your will - your life to God.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
