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.
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?
