Take several deep breaths. Empty your thoughts.
Let go of all that has held you back today.
Exhale all those things that make your heart heavy.
Envision yourself moving forward, lighter, more free, toward the Lord, who helps to carry all burdens.
“Travelers cannot reach new territory if they do not take new and unknown roads and abandon the familiar ones.”
John of the Cross (DN 2.16.8)
Nothing is too great a risk, if we are serious about moving toward deeper union with God. Pray for the grace to let go of the familiar and to be open to new ways of thinking and being inspired by the Spirit of God.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
