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.
...souls who do not practice prayer are like people with paralyzed or crippled bodies; even though they have hands and feet, they cannot give orders to these hands and feet.
St. Teresa of Avila
The practice of prayer is so important that we really can’t function without it if we want to stay spiritually healthy. Pray today for the grace to stay committed to a regular practice of prayer.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
