Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
The most sublime inspirations are nothing without works.
St. Therese of Lisieux
As Therese knew so well, Jesus taught the disciples that It is not those who call out, “Lord, Lord” who enter the kingdom of God, but rather those who do God’s will. In your prayer today, ask to be a person of integrity, one who lives out God’s will in your everyday life.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
