Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
A spirit in distress and solicitude for God's love is a sacrifice most pleasing to God.
St. John of the Cross
The sacrifice that is “most pleasing to God,” is a contrite spirit - a soul that longs to be purified and in closer intimacy with God. In your prayer today, long for that “solicitude for God’s love” that is a sign of sincere seeking.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
