Look around you. Take the time to consider exactly where you are at this moment. Breathe deeply and meditate on the fact that God knows you, right now, wherever you are. God is with you at this moment and sees you and knows the desires of your heart.
Take a deep breath and allow God's desires to fill your heart.
Exhale, and let go of your worries and those things to which you have been clinging and which may have gotten in the way of your relationship with God today. Take two more deep breaths.
Insofar as individuals are purged of their sensory affections and appetites, they obtain liberty of spirit in which they acquire the twelve fruits of the Holy Spirit.
St. John of the Cross
As you pray today, ask for the grace to be “purged of sensory affections and appetites” that will set you free and gift you with the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
