Take several deep breaths. Empty your thoughts.
Let go of all that has held you back today.
Exhale all those things that make your heart heavy.
Envision yourself moving forward, lighter, more free, toward the Lord, who helps to carry all burdens.
...aridities, then, make people walk with purity in the love of God.
St. John of the Cross
John urges us to accept “aridities” as a grace in prayer because they can make us “walk with purity in the love of God.” In your prayer today, ask that you will remain faithful even when you experience dryness or great distraction or restlessness.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
