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.
...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.
