Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
In tribulation immediately draw near to God with confidence, and you will receive strength, enlightenment, and instruction.
St. John of the Cross
Never hesitate to approach your loving God when you are troubled or frightened, confident that God always hears our prayers. As you pray today, approach God with a trusting heart, assured that God will respond to your needs.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
