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.
“To achieve interior silence, practice exterior silence.”
– Blessed John of Saint Samson
When was the last time I was alone without any sounds in the room for ten minutes or longer? On a scale of 0 (cannot tolerate) to 10 (very content) what is my comfort level with five minutes of complete silence?
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
