Sit in a comfortable position. Breathe deeply.
Turn your mind to Christ, our light.
Breathe deeply. As you breathe in, consider a moment when Christ has been a light in your life.
As you breathe out, consider one way you can be an example of Christ's light to others.
Allow Christ's love and light to restore peace to your soul.
As often as God communicated at length with someone, he appeared in darkness.
St. John of the Cross
John offers encouragement to those who have been faithful to God in prayer over many years, but experience God’s presence and communication only in the “darkness.” Pray today that you are patient and not discouraged when your prayer does not meet your own expectations.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
