Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
O my God, You have surpassed even my desires, and I would tell of Your mercies.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Humbly aware of God’s majesty and of her own littleness, Therese exclaims the wonders of God who “surpassed even my desires,” and her longing to proclaim God’s mercies. As you pray today, reflect on your relationship to God and how you might decrease as God increases.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
