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.
...for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
St. Therese found great comfort in reciting the Our Father, especially when she experienced dryness in prayer. A model for all prayer, the Lord’s Prayer establishes us in right relationship to God. In your prayer today, approach God with humility and openness, praising God and asking for what you need for now.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
