Choose a mantra or ''prayer word'' such as ''God,'' ''love,'' ''Spirit,'' or ''Jesus'' to quiet the mind when distracting thoughts intrude.
Close your eyes and start reciting the mantra aloud at first, so you can listen to yourself speaking or chanting the mantra.
After a few minutes, begin to recite more quietly, whispering and finally only moving your lips to form the mantra without producing an audible sound.
Recite the mantra in your mind, repeating it mentally without moving your lips.
Trust God that you are where you are meant to be.
St. Teresa of Avila
Living with deep faith includes the acceptance of your life situation in the moment, placing your trust in God and knowing that “you are where you are meant to be.” In your prayer today, ask for a childlike trust in God who loves you unconditionally and promised never to abandon you.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
