Begin with simple awareness that you are, that you exist, here and now.
Sense your own being, and rest in it.
As you become fully aware of your being, realize that God is your being.
Breathe in and out slowly and deeply three times and rest in the awareness of his being, your shared being.
It is my weakness that gives me all my strength.
St. Therese of Lisieux
With all the great saints, Therese knew that it was only in her powerlessness, that she had true strength, recognizing that all she had was a gift from God. As you pray, ask for the recognition that you are strongest when you depend totally on God.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
