Breathe deeply and consider the ways in which you saw hope in the world today.
Pray: ''For I know well the plans I have in mind for you-oracle of the LORD-plans for your welfare and not for woe, so as to give you a future of hope.''
Breathe deeply and consider the ways in which you bring hope to the world.
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.
