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.
It is good to be aware that one is in God's presence and of who God is.
St. Teresa of Avila
The gift of God’s faithful presence to us, around and within us, is something to be treasured – a sign of God’s unconditional love. As you pray today, give thanks to God for the many ways you experience that presence daily.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
