Be still and allow yourself to be in the presence of God, who is always available to help us. Remember: ''For God all things are possible.'' Repeat three times. Exhale, letting go of all doubt you feel. Breathe in and recall that God will never leave your side.
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?
