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.
No, I am not an angel of heaven, but if I fall every moment of my life, I shall get up and come to You. Give me the grace that I may live by love.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese knew that God’s grace was sufficient for her to “live by love.” Bring yourself just as you are, to your prayer today, and ask for the same gift of God’s grace.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
