Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
Because of its obscurity [the soul] calls contemplation night.
St. John of the Cross
Contemplating the mystery of God is often like walking in the dark – an obscure and uncertain journey. However, night also allows one to see in new ways, to notice things not apparent during the day. Pray today in gratitude for the graces you have received in the “night.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
